When President Obama took to Jon Stewart's special Washington set on the Daily Show and gave him a full 15-minute interview last night, he demonstrated EXACTLY why voters are deserting him in droves.
He CALMLY told us that his administration has had historic achievements. He agreed that the slogan that helped him win the last presidential election, "Change you can believe in," needed to have the new add-on: "but we have to work on it." He continually repeated that change "is a work in progress."
President Obama, you are right! We the people are unreasonable. We want our change immediately! We want our jobs back! We want our mortgages fixed! We want better education! Lower taxes!
But we weren't sure we want health care, especially after all the crazy ads that have convinced us that Obamacare will raise our premiums and send our grannies to death panels!
In any case, we wanted all the good stuff fast, especially JOBS! Instead, you keep telling us that it will take longer than 18 months to make these things happen.
And when you tell us these things, you say them so quietly and calmly (like you did last night on the Daily Show), we feel gypped!
