Not The Change You Were Hoping For?

Via Memeorandum:

Nobody can deny that back during the campaign candidate Obama generated a lot of enthusiasm. He became president because he convinced 53% percent of the voters that he could lead this country into a new Golden Age. Words. Nearly a year in there is no gold and instead it appears President Obama has ushered in the Age of Low Grade Tin. Or as Rasmussen puts it 45% for Obama, 49% Against – If Election Were Held Right Now:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% of adults say they would be at least somewhat likely to vote for Obama if he was up for reelection right now. Forty-nine percent (49%) say they would be unlikely to vote for the president’s reelection.

Thirty-four percent (34%) would be very likely to support Obama, while 40% say they would be not at all likely to do so.

What happened? Words. Empty words and empty promises.
