It all seemed so promising this time last year. All the campaign speeches about “Hope and Change”, “Change we can believe in” and all that stuff. Most Americans bought it. The wisest of us did not.
And now it seems most Americans are becoming wise.
A great link here to Real Clear Politics Right Direction/Wrong Track survey results. There has been no surge of agreement that this country is on the right direction even since Mr. Hopenchange took office. Their post includes many other surveys, including liberal ones. Only 36% say the country is in the right direction, while 58.8% say it is wrong. Those are some stunningly upside down numbers for a new administration only 10 months old – an administration that ran a campaign entirely on the promise of CHANGE.
