The news media bi-itching has become overwhelming. The panic has become reality. That one bad week for Obama saw no tears. People are no longer listening to the news media followers, once respected, now receiving less hits than comment on Facebook. An article in the Boston Globe today says that with just over five months remaining the Obama vote can go either way if his problems are considered on their own. Considered together it becomes a different story.
Boston Globe: “The economy is soft, his poll numbers are down, and Europe has the markets on edge; Romney is even beating him in the money race. What was once hailed as personal confidence — or condemned as arrogance — is long gone. Panic has set in, and it’s making Team Obama do strange and disturbing things…
For months, the White House has been assuming that the economy would be humming by Election Day. Caught flat-footed by the recent slowdown, they have nothing to offer but reheated leftovers from the 2009 stimulus — proposals that not even the Democratic-controlled Senate has passed. Add to that the fact that they will only add to our crushing debt; no Congress will raise taxes in an election year.”
Then there are the national security leaks (Kill list, Iran nukes, bin Laden, Israel, Pakistan doctor, Holder…). Our jobs are gone. Our energy is blocked. Our homes are under water. Our military will soon be third rate, the all powerful America will be laughed at!
The article ends with a Tyson quote: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.” How many times are you going to be hit?
