I knew I’d figure it out eventually. This headline from the Drudge Report leaped out at me this morning “Only 21% Want FCC to Regulate Internet.”
President Obama seems to have a political tic of automatically going along with anything that we, the people, object to. The examples are numerous – polls showed Americans opposed to ObamaCare, we got it anyway. The overwhelming majority of us want our border with Mexico secured, but it remains open. Janet Napolitano even cites a bunch of environmental regulations as excuses to prevent border enforcement, thereby making areas of America no-go zones. Most of us want the federal budget to be balanced. What happened? This outgoing Congress added more debt than the first 100 Congresses combined following Obama’s lead.
The same goes for the Porkulus, the magic bill that was to keep unemployment from reaching 8%, Cash for Clunkers, the takeover of GM, Chrysler, and college loans.
I’m beginning to see a pattern developing.
Doubtless, this is a result of his college days. "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully," Obama wrote in his memoir, "Dreams From My Father." "The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."
Well, that certainly explains a lot.
It’s becoming clear that reason, logic, and positive results mean nothing to our President. He’s singularly focused, laser-like you might say, on anything that will result in America’s downfall. All the traditional methods that have been used in the past to strengthen and enrich this nation are being reversed.
So, how’s about we use a little reverse psychology ourselves?
This tactic will require just a bit of deception on our part for a while. From now on, whenever anybody answers a poll question, just make sure that you answer it the way you don’t want.
High federal debt? You’re all for it. After all, deficits don’t matter. Just look at my last credit card statement.
Weak national defense? Why do we need a strong military when the whole world loves us now that Obama is President?
Jobs? Why should anyone have any money? Just look at what it does to the rich, those bastards.
You get the point.
Yup, we can make his weakness work to our national advantage if we just use a bit of calculation. How do you think we got into this mess anyway? The MFM used their cunning and deception to drive down President Bush’s approval numbers to Obama-like levels despite us having a roaring economy even after a massive terrorist attack on our soil that was designed to devastate our economy. All we heard for eight years was "Bushitleridiotliarchimp". See, it can be done. You just need to stay positive and focus on the task at hand.
All it takes is to remember how to answer those poll questions, folks. Think of it as Backwards Day except for grownups. And politics.
We can do this.
