He got his start as a salesman. As a community organizer, he simply laid out what needed to be done. He aroused the ambitions of those actually capable of doing the work. People listened to him. In fact they continued to invite him back so that they could hear his latest spiel.

Nobody buys what he’s selling any more, but they are awed by how he can stand in front of them and, with a straight face, say things that even he obviously does not believe. Many of the suckers give him money just so they don’t have to buy the crappy products he tries to sell. E.g. unions and Obamacare.

As a purchaser, you want to know what you are buying. While caveat emptor always applies, there is a reasonable expectancy that the President of the United States of America has some credibility. At least there used to be. The citizens should not be misled (read: lied to) in order for the government to sell them the benefits crappy programs. The benefits should be self-evident. Even a recycling center will accept defecation for so long before they identify who’s doing the dumping and someone says, “Hey, no more. This crap belongs in a sewage plant”.

Too many people have caught on, so Obama is again blaming. He’s blaming his fellow Democrats as well as the media for not being able to retain a congressional majority. He couldn’t even rouse the ignorant and inattentive voters of the nation.  Only a few Democrats even allowed him to campaign for them. Most of those lost their races because of it.

Very few voters showed up to hear the president speak at most events and in some cases, almost half of them walked out of the venue mid-speech. After hearing the empty rhetoric, they either didn’t vote at all or they voted for the Democrat’s opponent.

From the teleprompters, he now reads that he is willing to work with Congress. In the next breath, before the 114th Congress is even seated, he’s waving his veto pen and threatening to veto any bill presented by them. It’s still “My way or the highway”. The Avenue of Compromise goes only one way.

It’s time for some leadership, not dictatorship, leadership. The idea that Obama must resort to executive orders, signing statements and memorandums says much about his prowess at this point.  He cannot persuade Congress or the American people that the policies his cabinet and other handlers have written, have merit.

Even Gruber’s ignorant masses have awakened. He can no longer sell his $h*t to a fertilizer plant, and that’s a good thing.
