A must read from across the pond on all the factors that are creating a perfect fire storm of backlash. A small sample of the 10 reasons November will be a historic retribution on Barack Obama and the Dems:
3. Obama fails to inspire
In contrast to the soaring rhetoric of his 2004 Convention speech in Boston which succeeded in impressing millions of television viewers at the time, America is no longer inspired by Barack Obamaâ€™s flat, monotonous and often dull presidential speeches and statements delivered via teleprompter. From his extraordinarily uninspiringÂ Afghanistan speech at West Point to his flatÂ State of the Union address, President Obama has failed to touch the heart of America. Even Jimmy Carter was more moving.
4. The United States is drowning in debt
The Congressional Budget OfficeÂ Long-Term Budget Outlook offers a frightening picture of the scale of Americaâ€™s national debt. Under its alternative fiscal scenario, the CBO projects that US debt could rise to 87 percent of GDP by 2020, 109 percent by 2025, and 185 percent in 2035. While much of Europe, led by Britain and Germany, are aggressively cutting their deficits, the Obama administration is actively growing Americaâ€™s debt, and has no plan in place to avert a looming Greek-style financial crisis.
Keep this one on file – it is the obit for November.
