The false veneer of Change and Hope is falling away in great, gaudy strips and chunks, revealing the Chicago Machine-style play-to-play politics of the Obama system. Riddled by scandals and economic policy failures, it is not shocking to see the President’s reputation at all-time lows across the country.
What is shocking is that Gallup Polling shows that 42% of Americans STILL believe Barack Obama is doing a good job as president.
How is a man who has saddled the country with trillions of dollars in debt, packed the White House with Machine politicians (so many that it is often referred to as Chicago’s 51st Ward), given away billions of stimulus dollars and political appointments to Bundler cronies, ordered the Attorney General to ignore federal laws, openly said that the Legislative branch must be circumvented, attacked the Judicial branch and bowed to foreign kings still able to garner such a large amount of approval?
Easy. He’s a Democrat, one in the tradition of two of the best scam artists in American history: Richard M. Daley and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. If you know anything about these two men, then you have access to a road map of Obama’s tactics for deflecting criticism stemming from his failures and purchasing political clout through bribes.
