For all the chatter about how angry and hateful the Tea Party are supposed to be, we are seeing the anger amongst Democrat politicians rise and rise as November elections approach, and popularity plummets. Today we have seen a fresh outburst by none other than the President.
I have always said that the President is an angry man. Read Dreams of My Father, and you will see a great deal of anger about America come through, and this has been seen various times throughout his Presidency. His political ideology comes not from love, or a passion for something good - instead coming from a hatred towards certain people, groups and countries (including the UK.) It is mostly concealed, but comes out occasionally, especially when he goes off-message.
According to reports, he gave an interview for Rolling Stone magazine, where he by and large stayed on message. He finished the interview, left and then burst into the interview room again, sat back down, and proceeded to rant about Democrat supporters who were unenthusiastic about November and who might not vote in the upcoming November elections.
He proceeded to blast his own supporters as "inexcusable" and "irresponsible", telling them to "buck up" and vote for him - failing to account for the fact that they might not want to vote for him. Such a rant shows not only that the pressure has got to Obama, but also that he fails to understand just why he is so unpopular.
The reason people who voted him in 2008 are now unenthusiastic isn't because they are lazy, or stupid, or bored. It is because they didn't get what they voted for! He claims that they should stop bitching as he got 70% of his agenda through so far. But that is precisely the point - people didn't vote for his agenda, they don't want it! The reason they don't want to vote for him is because he got 70% of his hidden agenda through.
In the 2008 election, voters were fed a great deal of fluff about "hope" and "change", and how with Obama there would be no more red state and blue state, how he would reach across the aisle, and basically how he was the perfect moderate. Stir in with that a widespread dislike of Bush, a fawning media, and the race card being played as often as it could be laid upon the table, and that is really the short story of how Obama was elected without ever really revealing his hard-left tendencies.
However, in his arrogance, Obama seems to have thought that he persuaded America to turn into a socialist nation, and that because he has managed to proceed with 70% of a socialist agenda, Americans should somehow be grateful and turn out to vote for him again in their droves. In his arrogance, I don't think that it has crossed his mind that people don't want it all. They don't want Obamacare, they don't want a weak foreign policy, they don't want higher taxes, they don't want outrageous spending and they don't want mass nationalisation of industry.
The fact that he doesn't get that, and chooses instead to blame his own supporters for his problems shows just how "incredibly intelligent" the prodigy really is. However, the fact that he doesn't get it and lives in his own little make believe world is a very positive sign for the Republicans in the November elections. Because if Obama starts turning on his own supporters, and failing to take responsibility for anything that he has done, then the Democrats are really screwed - both in November, and in 2012.
So in the meantime...more tantrums please Mr President!
