The economy basically collapsed in the first quarter. The Middle East is burning, and World War III is brewing. The southern border has collapsed and illegal immigrants are flooding in. The IRS has proven to be a hotbed of political corruption. And the list of other Obama-caused disasters could fill the whole rest of this page. But instead of addressing any of it, the President is playing the “King who walks among the Commoners” game in hopes of raising his approval rating.
The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles.
And instead of trying to avert the takeover of the Middle East by a group that was so violent even Al Qaeda spurned them, John Kerry’s State Department is yammering on-and-on about LGBT rights (while simultaneously pandering to the Islamist regimes that are the most abusive of gay rights).
So, I ask the question in the threadline: Do women and gheys really say, “This presidency has been a disaster on every front, but I like the way Obama panders to my sex/sexual orientation, so he’s got my vote.”
And then I remember the 2012 election.
