President Obama has watched his popularity decline in a continual process and Democrats lose vital elections in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts so it is no wonder there is a search for the culprit in the wood pile. Ramn Emanuel, his chief assistance has become a focal point of complaints because of his ram rod manner of enforcing his views on one and all. Many now blame him for the political collapse of Obama and the debacle of what is now known as “healthcare reform.” There is no question that Rahm is abrasive, arrogant and believes he always knows the truth. But, then again, isn’t that the basic personality of those who surround the president–Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, etc.. Of, and isn’t it clear we now know that is the personality of Barack Obama?
The basic problem of the Obama administration is focusing on the needs of bankers and businessmen and ignoring the plight of average Americans. For decades, Republicans argued the “trickle down theory” under which make certain rich people are doing well and the goodies will eventually trickle down to the masses. Barack Obama is the first Democratic president who bought into the Republican theory.
As Shakespeare put it, President Obama, “the fault lies not in yourself, but in yourself?”
