I guess we’re all nothing but a bunch of hayseed racists now. A new poll commissioned by the same paper that smeared Rick Perry finds that opposition to President Obama is growing, and according to various Hollywood figures, high unemployment, declining wages, devaluing homes and the looming mandates in ObamaCare have nothing to do with it.
Four in 10 Americans “strongly” disapprove of how President Obama is handling the job of president in the new Washington Post-ABC News poll, the highest that number has risen during his time in office and a sign of the hardening opposition to him as he seeks a second term.
While the topline numbers are troubling enough, dig deeper into them and the news gets no better for Obama. Forty-three percent of independents — a group the president spent the better part of the last year courting — strongly disapprove of the job he is doing. Forty-seven percent of people 65 years of age and older — reliable voters in any election — strongly disapprove of how he is doing his job.
Strong opposition to Obama has grown markedly since the start of the year.
Well, it’s clearly because of racism. And racism. Oh, and more racism. Did I mention racism? The fact that the future looks about as bright as one of those curly-que government mandated light bulbs has got nothing to do with it.
The “anyone but Obama” crowd is getting larger and more strident in its opinions, while the president’s base is growing less and less strongly supportive of how he is doing his job.
