The liberal media announced today that no matter what, they are going to carry water for Obama. And, their goal is to make Republicans and independents feel demoralized no matter what the truth is.
The AP reported:
History repeats itself, until it doesn’t. That musty truism is worth remembering as pundits speculate on whether the lumbering economy will doom the re-election hopes of President Barack Obama, who has shown a knack for beating odds and breaking barriers.
Clearly, some important trends are working against him. The latest evidence is Friday’s lackluster jobs report, which found the nation’s unemployment rate stuck at 8.2 percent.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was the last president to win re-election with so much joblessness. Voters ousted Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush when the jobless rate was well under 8 percent.
And it’s not as if Obama can divert the nation’s attention from the economy, which has dominated the election from the start. His signature domestic achievement, the 2010 health care overhaul, is a mixed political blessing, uniting Republicans against him. Voters show little interest in how his administration wound down the Iraq war and killed Osama bin Laden.
And yet Obama runs even with, or slightly ahead of, Republican rival Mitt Romney in poll after poll. Campaign strategists debate the reasons.
They might include Obama’s personal likeability, gaps in Romney’s strategy, or Americans’ grudging acceptance of a new normal in which millions of jobs are gone for good, and no single person is responsible.
Obama continues to trail Mitt Romney in the Rasmussen daily poll – 46% to 44%.
Here’s more news that won’t make any headlines in the lib media…
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows just 31% of Likely Voters believe President Obama is doing a good or excellent job handling economic issues, including 12% who say he is doing an excellent job. Forty-eight percent (48%) believe Obama is doing a poor job in this area.
