How embarrassing is this: you’re the president of the United States. But a former president, who was impeached by Congress, is more popular than you are.
Here’s a fun fact from the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll: Bill Clinton is the most popular political figure in the country. The former president, who never won an outright majority of the popular vote and was impeached by Congress, enjoys a 55–23 favorable/unfavorable rating. Clinton left office with an approval rating of 68 percent according to the CBS poll at the time, so his continuing popularity is not surprising. Source
Why is this happening at a time when we should still be celebrating the first biracial man ever elected president?
The answer is clear: American voters have lost touch with the Machiavellian, socialist president they put in office.
At some point Obama must have been clued in by his advisors that his narcissistic ways were causing him to lose his liberal base. But like most narcissists, Obama refused to listen. It took former president George Bush six years to lose the support of his base. Obama has managed to accomplish this feat in only two short years.
The same enthusiastic supporters (blacks and whites) who carried Obama to that historic win in 2008, are now abandoning him in droves. Likewise, Obama’s top advisors are systematically abandoning ship.
Obama tried to fire up his dwindling Democratic base at a rally at the University of Wisconsin on Tuesday (Sept. 28).
“They’re betting on your apathy,” Obama said to the crowd of mostly high school and college students. “Madison, you’ve got to prove them wrong.”
