The Relentless Conservative Headshot

Is Our President Losing It?

Posted: Updated:

What do you do when you're beleaguered? When even your friends are deserting you and ranting?

Attack your opposition, that's what.

And Barack Hussein Obama has been doing just that.

As he travels around at taxpayer expense to his key 2012 election states of Virginia and North Carolina ostensibly talking about his now-defunct job bill, Obama is slamming Republicans, Republican Presidential candidates and Tea Partiers mercilessly. Does this man have no shame?

When you are losing by every reasonable estimate and your approval numbers are dropping like a lead balloon, there's no other option but to re-focus people's anger at the Conservatives.

But oh no, that's not going to work Mr. President, the American people are too smart for that. They readily remember that the GOP and Conservatives warned Obama voters this would happen; that you'd fumble virtually everything because of your lack of experience and terrible policies.

His latest absurd claim is that the Republicans' recently released jobs bill will result in a litany of problems. In an obvious campaign speech, Obama was in full blame-mode while making a lot more promises he can't keep. "That's my plan," Obama began as if his lightweight plan developed by others wasn't already dead. "Then you've got their plan, which is, let's have dirtier air, dirtier water, less people with health insurance. So far at least, I feel better about my plan."

Don't go feeling too good about "your plan" yet, Obama. If it's anything like your promises to close Guantanamo, get troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, keep unemployment under 8% or fix the economy ... all Americans are in trouble.
