Is the honeymoon over?

Obama's first two weeks in office is getting off to bumpy ride and I think it is safe to say the honeymoon is over. President Obama started off with a record 83% approval rating-two short weeks later-64% approval. Why you ask. Obama's nominee's for cabinet seats are like a who's who list of tax cheats that are above the law. The bipartisan rejection of the pork laden "stimulus" bill has got Americans really looking into what really is in this bill. Public support for the bill has fallen 12 points since January, and nearly half of those surveyed do not believe it will shorten the recession.

You will not read in the MSM about Obama's falling approval ratings as you would of former Pres. Bush. It seemed that the MSM had daily rants about Bush's low approval ratings and nary a mention about the single digit Democratic controlled Congress approval ratings. Did you know that polls indicate some of Obama's early actions have gone against the tide of public opinion.
It is reported that Americans disagree with Obama's decision to close Guantanamo by 50 to 44 percent. Gallop polling indicates that 58 percent of voters believe it was a mistake for Obama to lift the federal ban on tax monies going to overseas family planning groups that provide abortions.

Are Americans starting to awake from the Obama Worship Syndrome that inflicted them at the voting booth? As I have stated before, Obama and the left will misread the election results and overreach with their socialist agenda. The mere fact that they are trying to pass this pork bill with a straight face is the epitome of overreach. The Iranians have shot down Obama's unclenched fist diplomacy with the same rhetoric that faced the previous administration. The Obama loving (we were told) Europeans are threatening an international trade war because of the "American only" clause in the pork bill. I think Obama is now realizing that being president is a lot harder than just giving a good speech. Is Obama really ready for prime time?

  1. There has not been a single thing that Obama has done that I have agreed with. I wanted to try to give him a chance, but it has gotten so bad that I can not stand to hear his voice. Hopefully people are starting to wake up from the OWS, but it is a little too late now. There is always 2010.

  2. The problem with being celebrity obsessed in this country is that by the time people realize the "fad" is over and the overhyped have little talent, it's too late; they've already capitalized off the public's propensity for short and sordid love affairs.

    Unfortunately for us, America's Presidency isn't like the Billboard's #1 slot. It didn't hurt America to give Vanilla Ice a pocket full of cash and unabashed admiration. But the damage an unqualified President can cause is never-ending.

    I'm still hoping for the best and am willing to support Obama. But so far, every prediction that his naysayers have made have come true (as to what his official 'actions' would be) and his admiring public's desires are being ignored. It can go bad in a hurry.

    Forget who wins the midterms and 4 years down the road; I'm hoping we even make it that far without a total collapse. America WILL wise up if it keeps going like this. I have faith in that.
