Pollsters: The Bad Economic News Is Only “Theoretical”
Larry Sabato’s pollster shop at the Uniinia of Virgirsity is saying it is all over but the crying and Obama is a lock. I doubt it, but here is the real head-scratcher in their analysis:
They caution that there are a few hurdles yet for Obama to clear, including the upcoming trio of presidential debates and continued bad economic reports. But they said those problems were only “theoretical” and concluded that “caution is always in order with almost six weeks to go, yet President Obama clearly leads at the moment.”
Oh, I see. High gas prices are only theoretically taking a bite out of household budgets. Unemployment is only theoretically persistently high keeping millions of Americans from making ends meet. Our crushing debt burden, having grown by $6 trillion, is only theoretically bankrupting us and driving down our credit rating. Regulatory onslaughts are only theoretically decimating the coal industry. Companies are only theoretically pulling back on investment.
I guess what they mean is that if the American people are not in a rage over the miserable economic leadership by now, they won’t be cluing in and getting worked up in the next 45 days, so the crap economy is only theoretically a barrier to the Lightworker. I guess that’s what they mean, but “theoretical”? Has it really come to this, that the citizens of the greatest economic engine ever created will be satisfied with the scraps of economic malaise and a slow drain of prosperity? And for an empty, megalomaniacal faculty lounge Marxist? This can’t be right, can it?
