While it’s true that we’re still about 100 days from the election and anything can and probably will happen to alter the trajectory of the race, the reality is that there are ONLY 100 days left until the election. Voters are beginning to make their decisions, based on the candidates, their positions, and in bad news for Obama, their records.
100 days out and the economy sucks and is getting worse. Jobs are drying up. The already paltry economic growth is grinding to a complete halt. Food and other inflation is beginning to kick in big time. Spending is more and more out of control. The national debt is careening toward $16 trillion. The Middle East is falling to the Islamists. Our allies are adrift and our enemies are emboldened. We are broke at home and crippled abroad.
These are not good times in America. This is not a Reaganesque “Morning in America.” It’s more of a Marxist “Midnight in America.”
Many Americans who were willing to give Obama some time and space to do his thing now realize that his “thing” was the “fundamental transformation” of the nation into a statist redistributionist mess with a command economy…with him at the controls, of course. And those Americans are now starting to believe that he needs to go if we’re to have any chance of throwing that “transformation” in reverse and saving the country.
And that’s what’s at stake in 100 days. Nothing less than the life of the nation.
