Not many of you have met my better half...Wifey.
But over the years, not only did she start paying more attention to local, state and national politics and the mostly detrimental effects they have on our lives, she also started becoming more vocal when we were all alone. I never made mention of it. I pretended not to notice.
So, earlier today, as I was reading the following article on the pretend president, for a second there, I thought Wifey's words had been plagiarized.
The stunning decline of Barack Obama 2011 edition: 10 key reasons why the Obama presidency continues to melt down
This here excerpt is almost a verbatim rant of her's of late...
6. The Obama presidency looks increasingly out of touch with the American people
There is a disturbing let them eat cake mentality projected by the Obama White House, whether the president is advocating higher taxes in the face of a possible double dip recession, or hosting elaborate parties while 45 million Americans depend on food stamps. No US presidency in modern times has been more elitist or out of touch than the present one, which exudes the kind of condescending left-wing snobbery that is normally the preserve of an ivory tower common room. President Obama looks increasingly aloof and out of sync with the American people, three quarters of whom now believe the country is heading down the wrong track – including a staggering 58 percent of Democrats, according to Rasmussen.
Yep, that's what she always says when she reads of his latest policy failings and his increasingly petulant outbursts coupled with his latest lavish taxpayer-provided party...let them eat cake. In Wifey's more tuned-in mind, Baroke and his phony nutritional-menu-planner of a wife are party animals first, and bit-lip pretenders when they're not busy partying. Hard to argue with.
My point is this. When the normally apolitical and apathetic start getting all aroused and pissed off to the point of wishing Air Force One a catastrophic failure, you know the dunce in charge is motivating people. Only, he's motivating the people that will prove to be his political undoing.
If things keep going like this, for the very first time throughout her entire life, I can see Wifey registering to vote before next November. And if you could get her involved in the political process, that's really saying something. For me, that's mind-blowing.
For what it's worth, there you have it: Wifey says the dunce has got to go.
And it would be foolhardy to argue with her while she's stewing from a position of factual strength. She's a Polish tomboy, so do so at your own risk.
