“I think that’s a fair argument. I think that, over the course of two years we were so busy and so focused on getting a bunch of stuff done that, we stopped paying attention to the fact that leadership isn’t just legislation. That it’s a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone,”
That’s the thinking of an elitist, and that’s the meme being disseminated by the Leftist water carrying main stream media: The stupid, ignorant US electorate couldn’t handle the great issues of the day, and were easily led astray by Fox news and the Republican spin machine.” But it continues: “The “great orator” for some reason, lost his voice, he wasn’t able to properly communicate his vision from the Oval office, for some reason…. he message didn’t get out to convince the American people,…it also must be due in some part, to racism”.
No. Nothing has changed in the dynamics that existed ever since Obama was elected. The media is still leftist, and still carrying his water, his teleprompter still travels where ever he goes, and the same people that were both enthralled by,and moved to, vote for America’s first president of color, are still there. They haven’t changed their post racial attitudes, no matter how hard the spinmeisters say otherwise.
What has happened is that the US electorate has wizened up, they are now more than aware of Obama’s far leftist agenda than they were during his campaign, and they rejected it, lock stock and barrel. The very same people who wanted a president to represent their views of what America is, a post racial, tolerant and benevolent people, now realize that the man who they voted into power, does not truly represent their values and ideas on what America should be.
As in the US media, so to here in Finland and throughout the European press, pundits, analysts and commentators are confused why Americans would reject “The One” after his historic election win in 2008. Well here’s a clue to you Europeans, they, the US people, are rejecting the changing of their great republic and its superior style of representative government based on a unique constitution, into European style social democracy that lives and breathes the statism the US’s Founding Fathers abhorred. Yep, that sums it up rather nicely. KGS
NEW YORK (CBS) — After suffering a “shellacking” in the midterm elections, President Obama acknowledges what many have seen as his chief weakness – failing to sell the importance of several legislative milestones to the American people.
NOTE: Obama and his administration knows that it can never persuade the people to accept socialism, that’s why they rammed state run health care legislation through the Dem controlled Congress, in hope that the majority of American people would conform to the “new reality” as well as banking that the Republican In Name Only (RINO) members of congress would never mount a successful attack against the legislation.
Obama also never thought the Tea Party would ever mount a successful attack against the Dems and the RINO leadership. In part because its a new phenomenon, and because the left leaning media would either ignore the movement, and when it eventually had to recognize it, it would dismiss it, as well as help to smear it. They all failed miserably in their mission.
