    As 2d term looms, Obama's Hope and Change become Fear and Gloom ​

    With all the fuss over political cliff dives and President Obama's gaffes, this fresh Gallup Poll almost slipped by unnoticed.

    Faced with the prospect of 1,478 more days of empty Obama promises and speeches, at least half of Americans have now decided that America's best days are behind us. While whopping majorities expect this year's economy will remain troubled. That federal deficits will continue. That crime will increase. Taxes too. Along with foreign turmoil. While America's influence and power decline globally.

    Good thing these geniuses voted to return the Chicago crowd to the White House to handle all this. Again.

    The post-New Year's Gallup survey finds that less than half the population (47%) now believes the country's best days lie ahead. Optimism about the future of the United States has been a standard popular expectation for many years and a staple of political discourse. Remember Ronald Reagan's "Morning in America"? But half the country is sure those days are as far gone now as Obama's promises of 2008.

    A majority of independents (55%) are convinced the best is past, while three-out-of-four Republicans agree on that gloomy outlook. (Scroll down for an effective political video capturing that sense.)

    Sixty-nine percent of Democrats, however, are sure the nation's best days lie ahead, possibly due to mental damage from previous drug use. While only 28% of Dems agree with independents and the GOP.

    Let's face facts.


    Obama is a shitstain on the Office, and the spot and stench will probably never come out.

    No amount of Lysol and Febreeze will remove the stench of corruption Obama leaves behind.
