This new USA Today/Gallup poll shows President Obama is widening his lead over GOP front runners in crucial swing states: http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2012-04-01/swing-states-poll/53930684/1
I just want to shout, "has the country gone mad?!"
This is not good news for the GOP. I just want to know how so many people could be backing President Obama. Just look at the three biggest broken promises:
- Economy not fixed in first term: unemployment is still well above the promise to reduce it to 7.0% by the end of 2010.
- He not only failed to cut the deficit in half by the end of his term, he has added nearly as much to our debt in 3 years as GWB did in 8.
- Guantanamo Bay is STILL OPEN (this doesn't have as much of an impact on the economy as many other issues, but it was still a promise I believe Obama made for the sake of getting elected, and he obviously hasn't kept it).
There. I've kicked off the discussion. I'd love to hear why some people are backing him. I'd love to hear why some people are not. For the backers, I wonder how much of the info they have is true, and how much of it spoon-fed media garbage (see this example: http://loudmouthelephant.blogspot.com/2011/12/media-and-half-truths-obamas-biggest.html).
