Why exactly are Obama's poll numbers falling? What are you thoughts? I think there are a combination of factors contributing to his growing disapproval ratings: 1. Obama jammed an $800 trillion spending "stimulus" bill through in his first month of office, giving nobody a chance to read it. This after promising "A new era of government transparency." 99% of the American people still don't know what is in that 1000+ page bill. 2. Obama delays, stalls, and ultimately does a 180 on Gitmo. He ran his campaign against Gitmo, and now he wants to establish a new "Preventative Detention Paradigm" compared by his own MSNBC supporters to Minority Report. 3. He ran as the post-racial candidate, and yet almost every week, one of his appointees is out making racist/racialist statements. Just off memory, Obama has taught me that white males are cowards, unwise, naturally discriminate against blacks, and act stupidly. We voted him in to stop this bullshit, and yet it's only getting worse... 4. He has promised health care reform that will reduce costs. He says it will reduce costs. The Congressional Budget Office then comes out and says it will raise costs. Either Obama is lying, or he really has no clue what is in the Healthcare bill, and is supporting it blindly. This scares people at a deep level. If our President doesn't understand the healthcare bill, how the is he supposed to make it better? Beginners luck? 5. Biden has an annoying habit of publicly saying what he is thinking, only to be rebuffed by Obama the following day. Americans largely feel that Biden is telling the truth Mr. Obama does not want us to hear, like the innocent child who tells Daddy what Mommy really thinks of him. 6. Nearly 10 months since we've started pumping money into GM, it still failed. What does Obama do? He nationalizes the industry, despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans think the GM bailouts were a bad idea. I don't know ANYONE who is happy with Government Motors. 7. Last, but definitely not least, 6 months after starting the largest spending programs in the history of the US, our economy is still in the shitter, and people are still losing their jobs. If passing the Stimulus was "urgent" then it needed to have an immediate effect. It had no immediate effect. If you argue "it will take time for the stimulus to take effect," then it is NOT a Keynesian stimulus, and will not stimulate the economy by any known economic theory. It is an unprecedented spending bill passed when the country is broke. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize why Obama's numbers are slipping. You just need to have your eyes open and connect the dots. Americans don't understand the technicalities, but they can feel in their guts, we're on a collision course.
