With the 2012 Presidential Election behind us and President Barack Obama well into the first quarter of his second term, conservative pundits, Fox News personalities, and talk radio maharishis of the right rise to the ringing bells of bad presidential favorability. It seems they welcome and then promptly serve us any poll that reflects badly on Obama’s approval ratings or his policies. They then top it with the failure of Obamacare. As if bad polling was a harbinger of better times ahead and repeal of Obamacare was imminent, they report relentlessly about unfavorable presidential attributes.
We must be clear on this though. These individuals are not trying to disservice their audiences. Conversely, they are good and honest men and women who are adamant about keeping the public informed about events, which shape the country. However, this type of information is irrelevant. It is as extraneous as a cigarette butt in Obama’s presidential ashtray. That’s how Obama views the news too. It just doesn’t matter.
For the foreseeable future, well at least the next four years, Obama with his mal-constitutional bearings will continue to implement policies contrary to the will of the people and the dismay of congress via executive fiat. Regardless the makeup of congress, the Constitution will absorb blow after blow as subversion brings about fundamental change in which he spoke of during the 2008 campaign.
With no defense from congressional republicans and complacency from the Supreme Court, we the people have little chance of preventing the impending cardiac arrest of the country’s cornerstone document. The Constitution has become a mere splinter wedged within the garments of Marxism.
Let’s look at this from a different perspective. During the 2012 presidential election, the polls looked bleak for the incumbent. His favorability and job approval was down below 50%. Survey after survey regarding Obamacare seemed to indicate an overwhelming dislike of the hallmark legislation that was promised to save the country and never read by any congress person.
Voters residing within the conservative wheel-house were convinced that a second term for Obama was about as likely as Solemn Grundy landing a job at the Daily Planet. After all, the polls were in their favor. Obamacare was in decline as well as the economy, and the general sense of discontent with the past four years was higher than the global warming gnome riding atop Al Gore’s shoulders. Despite Mitt Romney’s shortcomings, republicans were all but assured the White House.
None of it mattered. The Obama machine plowed through the statistics like Mean Joe Greene through a feeble Cowboy offensive line. And there it was; a wrecked and scattered republican party with nowhere to go but the democrat woodshed. How could this have happened? We can still hear the immortal words of Jed Clampett, “Pitiful, just pitiful.”
But where are we now? Have we learned any lessons from bringing sticks and stone knives to a tank battle? Apparently we have not because we’re still polishing up our corkscrews with the pollster’s whet rock. The polls mean nothing now. Yet we bow to their influence. Obamacare will not be repealed by the wishy-washy reactive republicans. Yet we continue to reelect this Cirque de Beltway bunch of clowns to represent us.
The bottom line is that we must elect congress persons that understand and exercise the underlying principles that the founders intended and stop worshiping the menial. In other words, uphold the Constitution. We’ve had enough with polls, approval ratings, and Obamacare. Those topics didn’t work in 2012 and they’re not working now!
