Why The Thrill Is Gone For Obama

Barack Obama 6 SC Why The Thrill Is Gone For Obama

In 2008, the Obama campaign represented “Hope and Change” and inspired millions of voters to pull the lever for the unknown man from Illinois. At his campaign rallies, it was commonplace to see supporters fainting, overcome with raw emotion. Obama’s 2008 campaign was fueled by an amazing combination of energy and optimism rarely seen in American politics.

In the 2008 election, it was our nation’s chance to elect our first African-American President. It was a strike against the sins of slavery and racism in America’s past and a way to launch our country toward a bright future of racial harmony and progress.

What a difference four years makes! Gone are the lofty goals and the inspired rhetoric. Instead, we have the stark reality of a failed presidency. Regarding race relations, the President has not united Americans; he has set them against each other. He ushered in more racial division than any president in recent history. For example, Obama has needlessly inserted himself in controversies such as the Trayvon Martin case and the arrest of Professor Gates in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His Justice Department refused to prosecute club-wielding Black Panthers captured on video intimidating voters in Pennsylvania, while his Attorney General had the audacity to lecture the nation about supposed institutionalized racism.

On the important issue of the economy, his stewardship has been horrific. The President has presided over an increase of $5 trillion in our national debt. Throughout his term, there has been a depression in the housing industry, a weak jobs picture, and a sky-high trade deficit.

This will be the first President ever to be responsible for an overall decline in total employment with an increase in the unemployment rate.  While the unemployment rate showed a slight decrease to 8.1% last month, it meant almost nothing since the overall picture is so grim. The last jobs report showed that more Americans are leaving the workforce altogether. The labor force participation rate is the lowest rate since December 1981. Almost one million Americans are so discouraged that they have stopped looking for work.

On the energy issue, the President speaks constantly of the need for alternative sources of energy. He wants to limit production of fossil fuels and raise taxes on the oil and gas industry. Post-BP oil spill, the President limited production in the Gulf of Mexico with his misguided moratorium, and a slow, arduous permitting process remains in place even today.

The results are not surprising. While gasoline prices are down a little in the last few weeks, it still costs more than double at the pump today than it did on the day the President was inaugurated.

With these troubles, it is no wonder than the latest Real Clear Politics poll average shows that 60% of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. Americans have seen the direction the President has taken our country in the past 40 months, and it is not something millions of Americans want to experience for another four years.

In Tuesday’s primary election in West Virginia, 41% of Democrats expressed their displeasure with Obama by voting for Keith Judd, otherwise known as a convicted felon, federal inmate number 11593-051.  Even though he is in a federal prison in Texarkana, Texas, Judd paid a filing fee, and his name appeared on the ballot.  This was not the only embarrassing result for Obama; approximately 20% of Democratic voters in other Southern states such as Oklahoma and Alabama have voted against Obama in favor of unknown opponents.

Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney is not an ideal candidate to take advantage of this discontent and oppose Obama, but he does represent at least some sort of improvement over warmed over socialism.  It is no surprise that he is leading President Obama in the latest Rasmussen poll by a margin of 49-44%.

Four years ago, Barack Obama was considered a “rock star” by millions of smitten Americans. Today, many of those same people view him as just another politician. Four years ago, he filled a stadium in Ohio with 36,000 screaming fans during a campaign stop. On Saturday, his re-election campaign was launched in front of an Ohio crowd of only 10,000 that barely filled half the seats in the arena.

The President likes to sing Al Green songs in public, anything to capture attention. In this election, many Americans will have the immortal words of the B.B. King classic on their minds when they go to the polls, “The thrill is gone away…..I’m free from your spell, I’m free, free now.”

Finally, the spell is lifted, and the real Obama can be seen clearly by the voters.

It is not a pretty sight.

    I hope there is serious buyer's remorse on the part of the 54% of the Catholics, 78% of Amrican Jews and 98% of the Blacks who voted for this Marxist Chigago thug in '08.

    • God help us if the fraud is re-elected. He is the first president in my life time that has done more damage to our Beautiful country since Jimmy Carter & Bill Clinton. What a shame this isn’t what our founding fathers had in mind

      I basically lost my job, not only my union position, but also my job because I dared to seriously speak out against Oblameo.
      I was warned to quit telling the truth. I wouldn't listen.
      Wish I could say it felt good to come back and say I told you so, but I can't.

  5. There should not be 1 person in the United states that would vote for him again. They either are living in a hole or they are so clueless they shouldn't vote anyway

    • Richard says:

      The only people in the U.S. who'll be voting for him are the illegals, the mob, the unions, and all the dead in cemeteries who'll vote often enough to ensure the piece of dog flop in the White House gets another term (probably president for life).

    • Seeks_the_truth says:

      The main group that votes Oblameo is the entitlement group. They are otherwise known as the OWS group, welfare group and those with their hands out.
      This is actually quite a large group in America. We can only hope not large enough.

      Don't forget Oblameo's other "advantage" is the vote tally will be in Spain.

    You brain washed voters out there, have you learned your lesson? Oh!, isn't this called a teachable moment, so say Obama and his leftist, commie, news media?

  10. schnitzelschitzen says:

    The gas prices are NOT down and will only drop slightly to appease the people for the coming election. This administration and OTHERS are mostly owned and controlled by the oil industry and all they succeeded to to do along with the NEWS MEDIA, is innoculate us into beliveing that they will not come down much. PEOPLE, even though you have all kinds of money to throw away on high gas prices, We The People should be holding our elected representatives, from the White House down to the State House accountable for SUCH MAD MISMANAGEMENT OF THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH! How come people like pelosi make soooo much money as a Congress Woman? Millions of dollars per year. WAKE UP!

    Over and Over until November Make sure your friends get this

    Who killed Bin Laden?

    Here's a Marine's answer

    "America is not at war, the US Marines are at war; America is at the mall." Let's be clear on this: OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American sailor, who Obama, just a few weeks before, was debating on whether or not to PAY, did! In fact, if you remember a little less than two years ago, his administration actually charged and attempted to court-martial three Navy Seals from Seal Team Six, when a terrorist suspect they captured, complained they had punched him during the take-down and bloodied his nose. Obama's administration further commented how brutal they were. The left were calling them Nazi's and Baby Killers. Now all of a sudden, the very brave men they vilified are now heroes when they make his administration look good in the eyes of the public. Obama just happened to be the one in office when the CIA finally found him and our sailors took him out. Essentially, Obama only gave an answer, Yes or No, to him being taken out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!!

    I just want to add a few comments on this subject;

    President Obama did not even want to give the okay to go ahead and kill Bin Laden. Obama was not aware that it was being planned behind his back, because he would not give the "okay" to Kill Bin Laden. After Bin Laden was found and killed, Obama was brought into the "Situation Room," from the golf course. If you remember the video on the news, President Obama was sitting by the wall in a folding chair, when he was watching the action that had taken place. (As he was the last one to enter the situation room, and they had one chair left for him on the sidelines.)
    He had to be brought up to date, given facts, etc., so that he could tell the American's by TV that Bin Laden was in fact dead. And of course he took the credit, when there in fact was NO credit due.
    Hillary Clinton and other administrative personnel, and the navy seals did the actual work, planning, etc.
    Shall I go on……or do you get the real picture now. Obama lied because he is the President and they told him he had to take credit for Bin Laden's death, it was his duty. So he did his duty and took the credit, where NO Credit was due.
    Oh, yes, lets add when the 2011 budget wouldn't pass and they were telling the American public that the Government would shut down. Obama actually said that the American Military was "Non Esential" and therefore would not get paid until the Gov was back to work again after a budget was approved. Many housewives and mothers cried out that they needed the pay to live on, but Obama insisted that the military were/are volunteer's and they were not called to duty. Therefore, they were non-essential.
    After Bin Laden was Killed, president Obama had a day to decorate all the Korean war soldiers from the 50's. (by dll, extra added info)

    2008: "Navy Seal Team 6 is Cheney's private assassination team." quote from Obama

    2011: "I put together Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden."

    2008: "Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured alive and given a fair trial."

    quote from Obama

    2011: "I authorized Seal Team 6 to kill Bin Laden."

    2008: " Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary, and the detainees should not be interrogated." Quote from Obama

    2011: "Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to our locating Bin Laden."

    I HOPE THIS GETS SENT AROUND TO PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH! Remind the people who vote, time to throw out the trash is nearly here.
    Those who have had freedom and lost it will never see it again!"

    I never understood the “rock star” status in the first place, as he is as ugly as the rearend of a camel, and has no talent other than lying out his wazoo. Never understood, never will. And, the only credit he deserves, because he earned it, is the Destruction of the United States of America. And I am happy to give him ALL the credit for that! Other than that, not one thing in regards to what “good” he has done, not one damned thing. He has broken our financial abilities to work, he has shamed us before all other nations, by bowing and scraping to the enemies of our nation, and has kicked our allies in the teeth repeatedly, and taken, stolen our rights one by one, and is not done. What on earth can anyone who has even 1/4 of a brain say that has has helped them with? Food stamps? That is not helping anyone to get out of debt and out of a prison, it has rather than that, driven us deeper into debt, and enclosed us in a prison of our own making, (with his “help”) because recieving government aid only makes them the prison guards, and us the inmates. Destroy the jobs, and thus, make us the slaves to their handouts. Because there seems to be no other choice if we want to eat and survive. This evil excuse for a human being, if he can even be called human, has done nothing FOR we, the people, and EVERYTHING TO DESTROY US AS A FREE NATION! And, if he is re-elected, we might as well bend over and kiss our collective rearends good bye, because that is all that will be left to do. Whatever the percentage of those who despise this evil that infects our nation, it needs to be one hell of a big percentage, because we will need, desperately need, all the percentages we can get, in order to help one another pull ourselves out of this hole that has been dug for us by this mu SLIME! And (now gay) liar, pretender, usurper, filth, disease, infection, infestation, insult……….the list goes on, but we need every single percent in America to rid ourselves of this rotten, evil, sick minded thing in office.
