Democrats wake up -especially the President's ad guys. It's not the early 70's anymore. And Chevrolet isn't Chevrolet anymore. You own it. And you own Chrysler. And you own the economy as well as how many banks now? And you own health care. Face the facts, American backyards --not just the 11 million that are currently in some stage of foreclosure -- are not the happy go lucky baseball, hot dogs and apple pie backyards they were before President Hope and Change came to D.C. Change has come to them and not the change they were expecting. Having President H&C go out and meet the folks where they live and struggle thanks to your change and then get mad at them isn't the best strategy to keeping the House and the Senate :
NYTimes: Continuing his tour of American backyards, Mr. Obama received a reception that was polite and friendly, but also pointed, when he visited Sandy Clubb, the athletic director at Drake University, and her husband, Jeff, a middle school social studies teacher, in the upscale, leafy Beaverdale neighborhood here.
About 70 people awaited him in the backyard, where Mr. Obama got an earful. One woman told him that her 24-year-old son had “campaigned furiously for you and was very inspired by your message of hope,” but is now out of college and struggling to find a job.
Another said she had “great concerns about your health care bill.” A priest told of an unemployed parishioner. A small-business owner expressed irritation with the president’s plan to raise taxes for people earning more than $250,000, to which Mr. Obama, showing his own flash of own irritation, replied: “Your taxes haven’t gone up in this administration.”
The man was talking about his taxes going up this January, Mr. President. Another bad answer by the most intelligent and gifted president ever.
