“The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sometimes only, to friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist.”

“Everybody else, including members of his Cabinet, have little face time with him except for brief meetings that serve as photo ops. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner both have complained, according to people who have talked to them, that they are shut out of important decisions.”

These are quotes from a New York Post article written by Michael Goodwin. The title of the article is “Aimless Obama Walks Alone”. Disenchanted, to say the least, Barack Obama is looking less and less like a leader and more and more like a simple Community Planner who is unqualified for the role of President of the United States of America.

Goodwin goes on to say, “Obama conceded in one television interview recently that Americans are not 'better off than they were four years ago' and said in another that the nation had 'gotten a little soft.' Both smacked of a man who feels discouraged and alienated and sparked comparisons to Jimmy Carter, never a good sign.”

“Obama himself is spending his public time pushing a $450 billion “jobs” bill -- really another stimulus in disguise -- that even Senate Democrats won’t support. He grimly flogged it repeatedly at his Thursday press conference, even though snowballs in hell have a better chance of survival.”

Here are some stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 21% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 41% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –20.Link
  • Overall, 42% of voters at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance while 55% at least somewhat disapprove. President Obama earns approval from 39% of men and 45% of women.
865.1 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day42.

  1. I truly learned about almost all of this, but with that in mind, I still assumed it was useful. Excellent job!
