According to the latest (9/28) Rasmussen Poll, Barack Hussein Obama now enjoys a 57% approval rating among American voters. What does this mean? It means that those Friday night debates didn't change a thing. It means that no matter how poorly Barack Obama acquitted himself that night it makes no difference. That revealing "America is the greatest nation in the world, BUT..." statement doesn't matter. That embarrassing soldier's bracelet gaff doesn't matter. His recently exposed contemptuous betrayal of our courageous military in Iraq by his behind-the-scenes attempts to manipulate our troop withdrawals for his own selfish political agenda doesn't matter. Rezko doesn't matter. His undeniable twenty year relationship with Reverend "Goddamn America" Wright doesn't matter. His angry militant anti-white America wife's outrageous admission that for the first time in her lifetime she is "finally proud to be an American" doesn't matter. His suspicious ties to Islamists and Muslims don't matter.
Don't you see? None of it matters. He is as impervious to stain as OJ Simpson was impervious to justice.
There are no present or future revelations, no matter how powerful, no matter how damning, that will derail this speeding train. 57% of America approves. 57% of America has spoken, and they have said that nothing, absolutely nothing that we have uncovered, or may uncover in the future, makes a damn bit of difference to them. 57% of America will not be dissuaded from their choice. 57% of America approves.
How does this make you feel? How does this make me feel? Outraged? Impotent? Resigned to failure and defeat?
I once had a friend who was determined to commit suicide. We loved this friend and we tried everything we could think of to dissuade them. But every argument we made fell on deaf ears. They were just determined. And nothing we could say, or nothing that we could think of saying, would make the slightest difference. And in the end, despite all of our well-intentioned efforts, despite all of our entreaties and all of those well-reasoned arguments, we lost the battle and we lost our friend.
That's how I feel.
