Obama is a Sitting Duck

by CarterFliptMe

I understand conservatives' angst in nominating a candidate in the GOP Primaries, but I remain optimistic that whoever is nominated will thrash Obama soundly.  It may even be more one-sided than Reagan vs Carter was in 1980.  In a CBS poll from December 9th, 2011, a staggering 75% of Americans say that under Obama the country is going in the wrong direction. This is a crucial element, obviously, because it speaks directly to whether Americans would be willing to give Obama another 4 years (of going in the wrong direction).

A Gallup poll from December 22, 2011 shows that 87% of Americans think that it is "a bad time to find a quality job".  Not only is this a horrendous statistic, but it has been hovering around 90% for about the last two years.  At the start of Obama's term, in 2008, that percentage was around 60%.  At this time in Bush's second term, the number was about 48%.  This speaks directly to the old campaigner's question, "Are you better off now than you were four years ago?"

The increase in the negative outlook on quality jobs occured at about the same time that ObamaCare was signed into law.  The passing of ObamaCare has stifled job creation, worsening Americans' bleak outlook on the job market.  The administration's refusal to push for fast-tracking to the Supreme Court the various constitutionality questions surrounding the individual mandate in the law has exacerbated the uncertainty, and thus, the negativity.

Keep in mind, all of these numbers are before the GOP has even begun running ads highlighting various failures, problems, and scandals the country and the administration faces. (See: Occupy Wall Street, Solyndra, and Fast and Furious)

So keep smiling Republicans, Obama, with his Alinsky tactics and horrible economic policies, has rendered himself a sitting duck.
