Dick Morris: Obama Sows the Seeds of His Own Demise

Dick Morris quotes several polls that indicate Americans want the opposite of what they are getting from Obama. However, he acknowledges that right now, the polls show a majority approving of Obama's policies.

He writes:

When the Obama administration crashes and burns, with approval ratings that
fall through the floor, political scientists can trace its demise to its first
hundred days. While Americans are careful not to consign a presidency they
desperately need to succeed to the dustbin of history, the fact is that this
president has moved — on issue after issue — in precisely the opposite direction
of what the people want him to do.

And he explains why Obama's polls are high regardless of this descrepancy:

So if voters differ so fundamentally with the president on the very essence of
his program, why do they accord him high ratings? They are like the recently
married bride who took her vows 100 days ago. It would be a disaster for her
life if she decides that she really doesn’t like her husband. But she keeps
noticing things about him that she can’t stand. It will be a while before she
walks out the door or even comes to terms with her own doubts, but it is
probably inevitable that she will.
