Last year, after the government shutdown, President Obama challenged, “If you don’t like my policies, go out there and win an election.”
Then last month, Obama infamously said of his liberal agenda, “Make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
Last Tuesday, the American people responded, handing Obama, his policies, and his party an historic defeat. But somehow the message Obama received is “to push hard to close some of these divisions, break through some of the gridlock, and get stuff done.”
If that was the message the voters sent, then it certainly wasn’t directed at Obama. A post-election poll from Gallup confirms that it is the GOP that the American people want to “get stuff done” – by a margin of 53% to 36%:
This is on the heels of a poll last month which found that 32% of registered voters planned to send a message of opposition to Obama’s agenda with their vote – the highest ever recorded by Gallup – with only 20% planning to send a message of support.
How many more ways can the American people tell Obama STOP! CEASE! DESIST! Obama only hears what he wants to hear, and it’s the sound of his own voice.
