At least that’s the insinuation of the president:
President Barack Obama said Americans’ “fear and frustration” is to blame for an intense midterm election cycle that threatens to derail the Democratic agenda.
“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama said Saturday evening in remarks at a small Democratic fundraiser Saturday evening. “And the country’s scared.”
No worries, though, because Obama is going to stay the course:
“You can respond in a couple of ways to a trauma like this,” Obama said, referring to the economy. “One is to pull back, retrench and respond to your fears by pushing away challenges, looking backwards. Another is to say we can meet these challenges and we are going to move forward. And that’s what this election is about.”
In other words, Obama knows that his economic policies are failing, but he doesn’t give a rat’s ass. He will continue with his ruinous plans, no matter what happens in the November elections. He won, and he doesn’t have to defend his disastrous presidency for another two years. Vote accordingly, America.
