Some polls seem to indicate that Americans now believe that Barack Obama is more to be trusted on the economy than is Mitt Romney, and a majority now believes that the country is headed in the right direction. If this is true (and, because of my distrust in polls, I emphasize the if), then all is lost. If people are happy with the president’s handling of the economy (43 straight months of 8-percent-plus unemployment when he promised 5 percent by now, $16 trillion in debt with no end in sight, higher taxes on the wealthy, the strangulation of ObamaCare, incomes and personal wealth down, no drilling, anemic 1.25 percent GDP growth, etc.) and want more of the same, then reason has left the building. And when you consider that the president’s foreign policy is in flames, then there is no denying that some very dark days are ahead.
