… then why are so few folks satisfied with the way things are going?
OK, Obama inherited a mess from Bush.
According to Gallup:
Under Bush, “satisfaction with the way things are going in the U.S.” dropped from the high-60s that Clinton handed over to him.
When he left office satisfaction was generally in the low 20s … a big drop.
Prior Presidents got things back on track.
Reagan pulled us out of the Carter malaise … and Clinton turned things around after Bush, Sr.
Obama promised to usher in an era of hope & change, right?
How has that worked out?
Fine if you listen to him … or Hillary on the stump.
But, fact is, he didn’t move the needle much … a couple of points, at best.
So, tell me again, why are so many folks argue that we should stay the course?
Has dissatisfaction become the new normal?
As one candidate would say, “What the hell do you have to lose?”
