I recently saw a T-shirt with writing on the front that said, "25 years ago we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope. Now we have Obama, no cash and no hope." It was not hard to see as I was wearing it.
Needless to say, I am not a fan of President Barack Obama. However, his popularity remains fairly high and that gives me pause to wonder.
His three recent appointments, CIA director, secretary of state and secretary of defense could otherwise be called Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest.
The price of gas is at the highest level for this time of year ever. Have you been to the grocery store lately? Jobs, unemployment, medical costs -- people are really hurting. He cannot blame this predicament on the prior administration as he was the prior administration. He has no clue, but I hear his golf game is improving.
When he gives a speech, he reminds me of Benito Mussolini. He will state something that he thinks is profound, then stop talking, turning his head askance as if in smugness, waiting for the cheers from the liberal media.
Apparently, there is a disconnect on his popularity. He seems to be a pretty nice guy, but then so was Jimmy Carter.
