Obama Makes Empty Appeal to 'Bone-Tired' Americans

When Obama addressed the nation the other night during prime time TV he asked the American people to call their congressional representatives and they did. Unfortunately for him, the callers overwhelmingly rejected his non-plan and sided with the Tea Party principles of deep spending cuts, less government and lower taxes.

Where has the President been since the 2010 shellacking?  The American public overwhelmingly voted for real leadership and real answers but Obama pathologically ignores reality and reads from the same sanctimonious lecture notes.

When these Americans come home at night, bone-tired, and turn on the news, all they see is the same partisan three-ring circus here in Washington...They see leaders who can't seem to come together and do what it takes to make life just a little bit better for ordinary Americans.  They are offended by that.  And they should be.

The diagnosis of "these Americans" as TV- watching couch potatoes fed up with Washington is more passive-aggressive verbiage from the commander-in-chief. The One can't feel the people's pain without mocking them. Perhaps he should go back and read the master's treatise on community organizing.

When Saul Alinsky outlined his strategy to change the world by taking from the haves to give to the have-nots the Chicagoan emphasized the need to overcome suspicion and establish credibility when dealing with the majority. But Obama must have skipped right over that directive to the one he was really good at: "rubbing resentments, fanning hostilities, and searching out controversy."

His deep seated bitterness toward self-reliant, tax-paying citizens oozes from every speech. Perhaps the fact that he has never held a real job, never produced anything, never owned or worked for a business and foundation-hopped his way into Chicago politics contributes to the palpable animus felt by those who are tapped out; Kool-aid zombies included.

Alinsky warned that failure to connect with regular folk would drive them "to the right."

To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families - more than seventy million people - whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971].

They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don't encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let's not let it happen by default.

Sorry Saul, but your student has them moving in droves. The Democrat Party is quickly becoming the Party of Obama with even the likes of Jon Stewart flashing sickle and hammer images while bashing the One's hypocrisy. Ironically, the community organizer may end up adding to the tea party rolls as disgruntled minions "form alliances" with the bitter gun-clingers.
