When you lose the left … what’s left? A couple of great bites but also some great insight from the left and right on the continued disenchantment with the young President, from Jack Cafferty and Charles Krauthammer.Obama’s approval rating is sinking. 54% disapprove on Rasmussen and 47% in the latest Gallup. Not hard for me to understand. A trillion dollars that didn’t stimulate the economy. See the latest jobs numbers. A health care bill that so far promises nothing more than increased costs and still no health care. And an oil spill that grows worse every day and no sign of leadership in sight. See Bobby Jindal.
Tie it all together and the President who promised to turn back the seas … is finding that he can’t really do what the real Messiah can. Cafferty asks the relevant question.
BUT … it’s Krauthammer who adds the necessary perspective. Be careful what you promise. Be careful the image you build.
Any successful businessman knows you must under promise … and over perform. But then, he never managed anything before so how would he know.
