Team Obama is looking more desperate these days.  The signs of desperation are clearly visible—Obama playing to a half-packed house in Miami, Obama using increasingly shrill arguments that his job creation efforts are working, Geithner’s threats regarding the debt ceiling and the Democrat-influenced mainstream media’s increasing criticisms of the Republican slate of presidential primary candidates.  If Obama’s policies are so successful and if the country is doing so well, why do Americans see this growing desperation in Team Obama?

Team Obama’s desperation seems to stem from a fear of the unknown—how will it be possible for them to win congressional seats and keep the Presidency in 2012 when many Americans are seeing through the Obama Administration’s promises and the illusions of “hope and change”.

The five hundred promises made by Obama during his first presidential campaign have not been implemented.  The economic philosophies of Democrat-led states, that high taxes and increased government spending will create prosperity, have proven to be a failure.  Just look at states such as California, Michigan and Illinois.   And, the state that most clearly implemented a Republican, capitalist, free market approach to governing, Texas, is thriving and growing.

Yet, even this failure of ideology is not what is creating the growing desperation among Democrats.  These ideological failures are just emblematic of much larger issues, and the root cause of Team Obama’s growing desperation.

It may well be that Democrats are growing more desperate because they no longer have ACORN to ensure success at the polls in November 2012.
