Nobody questions Barack Obama’s talent as an effective orator -- it’s more a question of what he says than how he says it.
With or without those omnipresent teleprompters, the president is failing to connect to the majority of his fellow Americans, mainly because they emphatically disagree with most of the snake-oil policies he’s trying to sell them.
It is now becoming apparent that the public is anything but happy with Obamacare, which they are beginning to understand inserts the government snack in the middle between themselves, their doctors and institutions that provide medical care for the American people.
That’s the same meddlesome government that loses tons of money delivering the mail and fails to make the trains run on time -- a feat even Benito Mussolini, one of the most inefficient dictators in all history, was anecdotally able to accomplish.
Our new system of socialized medicine, nowhere near fully implemented, is already bearing the bitter fruit of out-of-control costs, now planted firmly on the shoulders of the American people. And that’s only the beginning.
Of late, the president has begun to show his impatience with the American people who, in their ignorance, are failing to show their appreciation for his valiant attempts to bestow upon them the blessings of European-style Marxism, despite the fact that it has failed wherever tried.
Flitting from one backyard to another, democratically attired with open collar and shirt sleeves, he is preaching to his faithful supporters, carefully screened to keep the less-than-slavishly devoted from intruding on his folksy approach.
Even now, in his fervor to advance his peculiar Europeanized agenda, he pushes forward, fully aware that he his dooming his party to near-extinction in the Nov. 2 congressional election.
Some of the more-cynical of our cadre of political observers are suggesting that he is secretly overjoyed by the harbinger of doom hanging over his supporters in Congress, relishing the prospect of running against those villainous Republicans on Capitol Hill for obstructing his heroic and selfless efforts to improve the lot of his fellow Americans.
Harry Truman, allegedly a sure-loser in the 1948 presidential election, turned the tables around by creating an ogre -- the GOP controlled “do-nothing” 80th Congress -- which he insisted was standing in the way of his efforts to create that year’s Democratic Party vision of Heaven on Earth.
Obama sees himself poised to recreate the Truman surprise in 2012 by lambasting the current version of a do-nothing Congress, which he rightly surmises will be under GOP control in at least one of the houses of Congress.
