Hello Globe And Mail: This Is Your Edition Of Snappy Answers To Stupid Questions, Mark 28

The Globe and Mail gets on today about how nobody seems to
like President Barak Obama
. It’s not enough that General Motors is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead, you know. Republicans get cooties from him.

So, ignore the fact that Republican participation in the primaries has fallen drastically in comparison with 2008. Let’s take a look at how excited people are to see the leading contender, Mitt Romney. A crowd of 1,200 at Detroit’s Ford Field. A stadium that holds 66,000 for NFL football. Christ’s sake, KISS probably drew more fans in the Motor City on their first show.

Yeah. Americans are REALLY looking for an alternative. Thanks to the Globe and Mail for trying to bend fact into its world view.

  1. I think you cruised past the point of the Globe article. They admit that favourability numbers for the Republican candidates are worse than Obama’s. Their argument is right there in the title, “Is Obama’s presidency a failure?”, and there a lot of progressives who will vote for Obama, think he’s the best option, but still say his first term hasn’t been a complete success. You only have to look at the list of his compromises to know that.

  2. That’s because Obama is running a great country having a hard time admitting its floor is falling out from underneath it.

    In retrospect, it’s probably true Obama wasn’t ready for the show; Hillary would have produced WAAAY more results. I dunno what you evaluate after 8 years of Obama, besides the drastic decline of American civilization (not his fault), but the fact he clammed up after getting so much praise as a brilliant orator is his fault, and has baffled everyone.

    I also don’t think Obama knows how to motivate people; he depends on them to motivate themselves. I think Hillary would’ve grinded a hell of a lot more out of the same ppl Obama had to work with.

  3. Grind indeed. It could be that he bit off more than he could chew and spread mediocracy over too many issues. I don’t question that he was well-intentioned, he just had too many people convinced.

  4. TFJ dude Hillary??

    She almost said; “we side with the Syrian “rebels”,at any cost” @$ hrs ago. Russia gives arms to the Syrian Army.

    I say: Stay The Fuck Out.

    This trickles down to a sorta war with a sorta alliance, who are buddies with China.
