Here is another winning argument from our President in this election season:
“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 hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Barack Obama said at a Boston fund-raiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee over the weekend. “The country is scared.”
So voters opposed to Obama, don’t think clearly because they are scared. Why is he saying this? Does he think voter will be more likely to support him because he tells them that they are irrational?
If voters act irrational when they are afraid for the country’s future, what does this say about the millions who voted for Obama in the midst of an unprecedented crash of the economy in the fall of 2008?
Obama’s latest comments were preceded by his admission that the nearly $1 trillion stimulus was a failure. (“There are no shovel-ready projects.”) and that Obamacare will increase the cost of health care rather than reduce it as promised before Obamacare was passed. Obama also made the completely unfounded, bizarre accusation that foreign money via the US Chamber of Commerce is funding the campaign against his policies.
Even on MSNBC, liberals are helpless when Joe Scarborough brings up Obama’s statement that voters are irrational.
