What was obvious to conservatives prior to the 2008 election is now becoming obvious to Obama-believers: the man is an empty suit. It is scary to see how easily a majority of American voters can be taken in by a slick media campaign and self-delude to such an extent. Obama was, as I said in an earlier post, a Rorschach Ink Blot, an unknown symbol onto which the dreamers could project their personal fantasies and believe that he was the second coming, the "one we have all been waiting for," a man who must be all-wise, all-knowing and all-good. After all, he had such a nice, razor-sharp crease in his pants-leg, a sure sign of a new King Arthur pulling Excalibur from the stone.
The news for King Arthur II only gets worse. Major Bloomberg of New York is blasting Obama for the failure of the "Super Committee," calling it "a disaster." Bloomberg said:
"I just think that the failure of the supercommittee to come to an agreement is a damning indictment of Washington's ability to govern this country," the mayor said during a press conference announcing a supermarket opening on Staten Island.
A New Hampshire poll shows Romney defeating Obama by 10 percentage points:
Obama trails Republican Mitt Romney among likely general election voters in the state by 10 percentage points in a hypothetical contest amid voter discontent with the president’s job performance and the economy, according to a Bloomberg News poll conducted Nov. 10-11. Obama carried New Hampshire by 54 percent to 45 percent in 2008.The question now in my mind is this: will Barack Obama step down and allow another Democrat to run for president in 2012? Personally, I doubt it. I don't think Obama is that unselfish.
Independent voters in the state, the site of the nation’s first presidential primary, have swung even more strongly against Obama. Romney would win independents there by 15 percentage points, the poll shows.
Obama has been a “lackluster” president with “no steady plan to create jobs,” says poll respondent Karl Swanson, 61, a marketing consultant and political independent who lives in Rye.
