In an election year that is driven by a near universal belief by the American people that DC’s politicians are too aloof, not listening to them and do not care, the worst answer a young president can give is:
Obama, speaking with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Sunday afternoon, was equally dismissive ofÂ conservative talk show host Glenn Beck â€“ saying he didnâ€™t watch the Fox hostâ€™s Saturday rally in Washington but wasnâ€™t surprised that Beck was able to â€œstir upâ€ people during uncertain economic times.
Obama, who just returned from a long vacation on Marthaâ€™s Vineyard said he didnâ€™t watch Glenn Beckâ€™s massive rally at the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday, adding that he was focused on the long-term, not on the â€œNightly News.â€
In other words, our President is not listening or paying attention again. You’d think even a dim bulb would have figured out by now to at least pretend to understand, feel the pain, regurgitate the concerns. Bill Clinton he is not.
Mr Obama acts as if the nation is out to get him. If it is, it’s his own fault since he had it full square behind him when he was elected. He is the one that made a series of misreads, missteps and mistakes. He reacts like this is campaign time, which simply under scores the now obvious – the man was not ready to be an executive in charge of a large organization. He does not understand how it works. And he is annoyed reality is not behaving as he expected when he was fantasizing about being President of the United States. He better begin listening to the people, or he will be a horrible one term president and his party will have been decimated in the process.
