It seems Obama and his supportors are convinced that since they won re-election the country agrees with the way they have been running things. Their overconfidence and arrogance is alarming but apparently nothing will be done to adjust their attitude. Part of the problem is too many people have been trying too hard for so long and not making progress they have become discouraged. I have found myself saying I am willing to pay more just to not be annoyed by stupidity. I don't want to have to spend three for four days a week calling companies, waiting hours on hold and speaking to robotic customer service personnel who were hired for their ability to ignore common sense and never question their superiors. Have you noticed prices spike due to a natural disaster or temporary problem yet when the problem is resolved the prices do not return to pre-crisis levels? That is because as people we get used to the higher prices. There is a saying I love to hit myself in the head with a hammer because it feels so good when I stop. Sad but that is what is happening in this country. Obama played the game of politics better than Romney. He couldn't run on his record. He ran by instilling fear of what may happen if he wasn't re-elected. That doesn't mean people agree with his policies. There was more of a fear of the unknown. Of course Obamas workers put messages out about how Republicans hate women and want to crush the middle class. These stories was repeated to the point where many believed they had to be true. The Democrats played a nasty game of politics and won. They offered not solutions only blame. Now they act as if the country agrees with their lack of action in the prior 4 years. Perhaps people are just overwhelmed with all the bullshit. I want people to understand the basic differences between Democrats and Republicans. Republicans believe individual states should control the way things are run in there state. Local, like minded people fashioning a part of the world that suits their likes. Democrats think the Federal government should control all aspects of our lives. They do this by giving money to states if they play along and taxing businesses and individuals who disagree. I find it fascinating that Obama isbegging people to blame him the Libya fiasco. Only now that he is guaranteed four more years does he have the confidence to welcome the attention. After all as far as he's concerned the people have spoken and they like his style. He's safe.
