Is Obama Really That Out of Touch?

According to Gallup:

President Barack Obama’s job approval is the worst of his presidency to date, with 46% of Americans approving and 48% disapproving of the job he is doing as president in the latest Gallup Daily three-day average. …

“Americans hold Congress in far less esteem than they do the president — 16% approve and 80% disapprove of the job Congress is doing.”

High unemployment and the struggling economy are without a doubt a major source of the American people’s frustration.  But it is no coincidence that the president’s job approval numbers have toppled to a record low during the same week, as Gallup reports it, “in which the White House and Democratic congressional leaders are working to convince wavering House Democrats to support healthcare reform, which they hope to pass using a series of parliamentary maneuvers in the House of Representatives and Senate.”

Yet, with two out of every three Americans opposed to ObamaCare, the Associated Press informs us that the president is telling fence-sitting House Democrats that “their political fates are linked to the bill’s passage.”


Ask anyone on your local street corner if they think politicians in Washington are out of touch with the people they claim to represent.  Nine times out of ten (if not 10 out of 10) you’ll get the obvious answer, “Yes!”   But simply being “out of touch” doesn’t even begin to describe the audacity of this president.
