Obama Music Dropping On the Pop Charts

Fools rush in
Where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know

The other day I was at a party surrounded by liberals talking politics. While they still had energy enough to trash Sarah Palin, there was not a lot of happy talk because much of the conversation centered on the economy.  Just a few months ago, even though Obama has been in office since January, it would have been the Bush economy.  Now it was the bad economy of today. Perchance tomorrow, it will be the bad economy of Barack Obama.

Could it be the President's love songs are no longer popular? Just seven months into his term, and President Obama's songs, the bills he signed and the impending legislation he seeks, are steadily dropping on the pop charts (also known as the approval ratings in the polls). While Obama remains relatively popular in the polls, the pollsters across the nation are in complete agreement: Obama's out of control spending, in general, and his government health care bill, in particular, are not.

When a music artist's songs stop selling, his fans and groupies begin to fade as well.  Despite the media's nonstop coddling of the President and the promoting of his agenda, the polls seem to be reflecting that many of his fans are realizing he is not so talented.  Perhaps they were mistaken when they fell in love with him, that contrary to the musings of Doris Day's, When I fall in love, it might not be forever.

As we all have experienced, in the words of Dean Martin, everybody loves somebody sometime.  Most of us, unfortunately, have also had the painful experience of falling in love with the wrong person.  Usually, when that happens, there are various warning signs that we refuse to acknowledge.  Sometimes, the warning signs we receive come in the form of friends telling us we are making a grave mistake.  They might say the individual is not who you think he is, that he is using you for personal gain, and that you are moving too fast and need to slow down. Rarely do we listen.  For the most part, we have to learn the painful lesson for ourselves.

During the election, conservatives, the wise men of our time who are not fools who rush in, tried to warn the American public that Barack Obama was not the man he said he was and that his charming personality and slick attire were not to be trusted. They warned America he was not the man of their dreams and the first seven months of his administration has proven them correct.  Our President is taking over the banks, the auto industry, has brought us to the trillion-dollar deficit marker, and is doing everything in his power to turn American health care upside down while cap and trading us into financial oblivion.  Moreover, via his stimulus bill guise, he is leading us into the un-promised land of 10% unemployment and beyond.

The sliding in the pop charts of the President's music is a hopeful sign that many Obama supporters will come to grips with the fact that the rock star politician they fell in love with is but a repackaged Harry Reid oldie; a Nancy Pelosi lip-syncer, with the vocal talent of Milli Vanilli.  In other words, they might begin to fall out of love with him. They will look at the President, and say to themselves, in the words of Patsy Cline, I'm crazy for lovin' you. They will recognize that under our President we are losing our liberties and way of life, and resenting his intrusive behavior, in the words of Lesley Gore, they will declare, Mr. President, you don't own me...I'm free and I love to be free.

Recognizing that one is in a relationship with irreconcilable differences is the first step in getting out of that relationship. Once out of it, the healing process can begin. Hopefully, one day soon, a multitude of former Obama hystericals will seize the day and cry out like Roy Orbison, Its over, followed by the Gloria Gaynor affirmation, I will survive.

As for the liberals at the party I attended, busy knocking Sarah Palin while lamenting the bad economy of today, they collectively sounded, to me, like the woman who wanted to console herself that she was glad she did not marry a former suitor, but not ready to knock her husband (the lousy provider). But the time is coming.

One day soon, President Obama's fans will come to grips with the fact he is just a one hit wonder whose only great hit was being elected.  When that happens, I hope that Neil Sedaka was incorrect when he lamented that breaking up is hard to do. In the meantime, let us do everything we can to prevent the President's radical agenda from succeeding and hope he and his reform bills keep slip sliding away.
