Einstein said that “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” is insanity. If you listen to Obama, there are no plans to fix the economy and create jobs other than through his failed methods of spending more stimulus money. It is the same thing he did in his first four years as president.
The lack of new approaches to solving our economic woes just means more debt and a ballooning deficit. Polls show that 65% of American taxpayers believe the nation is headed in the wrong economic direction. Yet Obama retains a slight majority in the polls over Romney despite his lack of new approaches to solving our economic woes. Are Obama’s supporters ignorant of the consequences in re-electing him or in denial that his policies have failed?
The media is pushing the likeability factor in this presidential race and people seem to embrace it. Con men like Bernie Madoff have a high likeability rating also.
In history, Washington did not have a high likeability rating. He was rather aloof. Yet he guided the nation through some turbulent episodes in our nation’s history and is ranked by historians as one of our nation’s top presidents.
Likeability is a flimsy criteria to use in any election when the economy has been sour for the longest period in American history. Proven ability to solve economic problems is a superior criteria at such a crucial time in our history. Obama has not demonstrated that ability; moreover, he does not take responsibility for his failures but blames former president Bush. This is a serious character flaw.
If Obama wins the presidency again, then we will plunge into a deeper economic and fiscal crisis. Those who support him demonstrate that they conform to Einstein’s insanity definition because plans to fix the economy are the same failed plans from 2008. It makes you wonder about the mentality of his supporters.
