The Honeymoon is over: Obama is failing

It only took a little over five months, but it's happened. The American people now trust the Republicans to handle the economy better than the Democrats. It was close last month. 44%-43%, but it's now Americans trust Republicans 46%-39% over Democrats. Of those not affiliated with the parties, the margin is 2-1 Republicans over Democrats.

Five months of spending, promised tax increases, nationalization of two car companies, and financial institutions, not to mention the increasing unemployment rate has led the American people to reject the Democrats and move to the Republicans. In fact, Republicans now lead on 6 of the 10 top issues.

In addition, two Democrats have left the Democrat party in New York and apparently now putting the State Senate into the hands of the Republicans. This over gay issues.

Europe is finding that Conservatives are more palatable than the liberals and moved towards more Conservatives in recent elections. They are expected to now hold the majority. Americans are trending the same way. This is the first time in two years that the Republicans have had the public trust on the economy. Two years ago was 2007 when the Democrats took over the House and Senate. Since the Democrats have taken over, we've been plunged into a recession and to listen to the President today, it's a very deep recession.

Democrats are changing parties, Europe is moving Conservative, Americans trust Republicans more, and the recent vote in California on five proposals show that the people, here and abroad are not happy about the way the liberals around the world are handling the crisis we've been plunged into. Add to that the reports coming out showing that the so-called stimulus bill isn't doing as it was promised to do, and unemployment is still on the rise and you have a recipe for booting out the liberal Democrats.

This is good news for Republicans for the 2010 elections, and it's also good news for the coming debates on national health care. National Health Care has a chance of going down in defeat which would save the country (millions of taxpayers) trillions of dollars.

Now when will someone conservative step up and lead these do nothing Republicans in Congress to start doing the right things and putting out the right messages? It's time for someone to step up and step up in a forceful way. Someone could step in right now and become the next Ronald Reagan and lead the Republicans back to where they ought to be. But he or she must be strong enough to keep them moving foward even after the initial bump upwards.

The Republicans nationalized the elections in 1994 and took over the congress with the promise in the Contract with America. That contract was a promise to bring ten items to a vote within the first 100 days. They did as they promised. They didn't promise to pass them all, but they did promise to have a vote on those items and they fulfilled that promise. This time, they need to make one of their contract items that they will continue to vote down laws proposed that take away freedoms and pass laws that enhance freedom. They also need to continue to push the conservative points beyond that first 100 days.

You're welcome to comment.

For reasons known only to him, President Obama avoids certain Bible verses:
Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): "It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!"
Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under "a servant who becomes king."
