The frustration in President Obama’s voice is apparent. It’s so bad, he’s dropping expletives on the Today Show. (Way to be a role model! Get frustrated, kick someone’s ass… great lesson for kids.)
With the results of a new Gallup poll shows that only 40 percent of Americans approve of his handling of the oil spill and Obama’s befuddlement that he is somehow getting the blame for not doing enough, you have to ask, why do Americans think the federal government can and should be doing more to control the leak?
Maybe two generations (or more) of liberals telling the American people that government is the solution to all their problems is finally coming back to bite them in the [Obama’s choice word]?
When the constant refrain from the left is that government can fix all problems and then a problem arises (oil leak 5,000 feet below the surface), that government has no knowledge or expertise on how to fix (nor should they), the lefties like President Obama have no one to blame for themselves for setting the expectations of the American people at an unreasonable place.
So, Mr. President, stop whining and take your lumps. Just as Katrina wasn’t George Bush’s fault, this isn’t your fault, but maybe you should rethink your long-term goals in making people think government is the answer, because this is what you get.
