Barack Obama Still Doesn’t Like Us

Last November, this web site published an article titled Why Doesn’t Barack Obama Like Us?  Now here we are today, just eight months from the election and it appears the Barack Obama still doesn’t have much use for us. In fact, it seems that his goal is to have less of us in the future. Why else would he make “free” distribution of birth control his highest priority?

Despite the fact that unemployment remains above 8%, (A percentage of unemployment that the Obama administration claimed we would never reach if we only passed his stimulus bill back in 2009) and although the Obama Misery Index (Inflation + Unemployment) is at a higher level than under Jimmy Carter, and while virtually every “Green Jobs” boondoggle, like the Fisker Karma in which Barack Obama has invested taxpayer dollars, has collapsed, the President’s only remedy seems to be to give the American people “free” birth control.

It gives one pause to think that a President of the United States just wants  less Americans. With whom does he intend to replace us? Does he have a source of people with whom he would prefer to deal? Does he want people more attuned to his ideas?  It is certainly a puzzle.

One wonders why Barack Obama is even bothering to try to get himself reelected. As we have seen, he believes the American people to be unambitious, unimaginative, unwilling, soft and lazy. It is a surprise that he wishes to remain in this country, let alone run again for President. He considers us to be no more exceptional than Brits or Greeks. Considering the financial situation that Greece is suffering, that is quite a damning commentary on the  character of Americans.

It is well known that Barack Obama threatened to transform America. Well, he has had more than 3 years to do so and what has he wrought? America is more polarized than in any time in our history. Political dialogue is more vicious now than ever before. Most Americans despise Barack Obama’s signature program and want it repealed. An unbelievable 72% of the American people, including 56% of Democrats, believe that ObamaCare is unconstitutional. This type of transformation we do not need.

And we certainly did not need an assault on our religious freedom as a part of that very same unconstitutional health care “reform” act. This whole birth control issue came up out of the blue. George Stephanopoulos got it rolling for the White House in the Republican debate in New Hampshire on January 7th. At the time, everyone thought that George had taken leave of his senses, but there was obviously a method to his madness. In a seemingly well coordinated White House initiative, birth control suddenly become the topic du jour of every liberal media outlet.

It was great for the White House and their willing accomplices in the main stream media. Instead of questions about high gas prices, $5 trillion in new debt, and unemployment above 8% for 3 straight years, the airwaves and newspaper columns were filled with hard luck stories about the “dire” need for condoms and birth control pills that were being denied by Republicans.

It was a perfect plan and Republicans fell for it. Instead of taking on Obama and his assault on the 1st Amendment’s free exercise clause, Republicans were suckered into debating the minutia surrounding the President’s call for “free” birth control for all. Republicans are always falling into these traps. They resemble nothing more than Charlie Brown believing that Lucy will not pull the ball away again as he attempts to kick it. They just seem to never learn. Republicans are constantly stuck in the position of having to be the stuffy, old uncle who has to remind us that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Democrats never have that problem because they are forever giving us “free” things. Our mothers warned us about such people and their offers of free candy, but we never listen.

And that brings us back to Barack Obama and his obvious dislike for us. He just can’t seem to hide his disdain. He knows the American people want the Keystone XL pipeline built, so he cancels it. He dismisses the concerns of religious people with a transparent lie that insurance companies will be paying for birth control and not their church organizations. Obama tells AIPAC one thing in a speech to shore up the Jewish vote and than rescinds it in a press conference the next day. He really must think that we are all dunces and won’t notice his long record of contradictions.

The public is not stupid. They are not happy with Obama either. The latest Washington Post-ABC poll has the President’s “strongly disapprove” ratings at the highest level that they have ever been. His overall rating is underwater with 46% approving his performance while 50% disapprove. The numbers get even worse when the question is on the economy or gas prices.

Public disapproval of President Obama’s handling of the economy is again on the rise.

All in all, it would seem that Americans are coming to dislike President Obama about as much as he dislikes them. He doesn’t approve of us and most of us do not approve him. All the more reason to end this dysfunctional relationship come November 2012.
