The Obama Problem

President Obama signs the mis-named Affordable Care Act in 2010. Many of these happy Democrats may not be so happy after the upcoming election.

President Obama signs the mis-named Affordable Care Act in 2010. Many of these happy Democrats may not be so happy after the upcoming election.

President Obama recently explained that although he is not on the ballot in November, the election will be a referendum on his policies. This thought made many Democrats on the campaign trail cringe. They know that Obama’s popularity with the American people is near an all-time low and they are trying their best not to associate with him (unless it is at a closed door fundraiser, of course). Several days ago, Alison Grimes, a Kentucky Democrat running for the Senate, repeatedly refused to admit that she had voted for Barack Obama. How entertaining was that?

But in many ways Obama was right; this election will be about him, about his policies, about the direction this country is heading. Why is America in decline? As long as the Progressive Left, which controls the modern Democrat party, stays in power, the country will continue to decline. The Progressive Left’s ideology is severely flawed and therefore can never succeed. Any world view that denies human nature, that denies the limits of government, that denies the laws of economics can never govern effectively. The Democrats in and out of Congress that have supported Barack Obama and his policies will hopefully get what they deserve come Election Day.

If Obama really believes the upcoming election will be a referendum on his policies, will he change course if his party gets another shellacking like it did in 2010? What a silly question! Arrogance knows no self-reflection, it merely blames others for its failures. Just ask President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper.
