Mort Zuckerman, who supported Obama, has a lot of negative things to say about Obama’s performance after one year.
Heâ€™s misjudged the character of the country in his whole approach. Thereâ€™s the saying, â€œItâ€™s the economy, stupid.â€ He didnâ€™t get it. He was determined somehow or other to adopt a whole new agenda. He didnâ€™t address the main issue.
This health-care plan is going to be a fiscal disaster for the country. Most of the country wanted to deal with costs, not expansion of coverage. This is going to raise costs dramatically.
In the campaign, he said he would change politics as usual. He did change them. Itâ€™s now worse than it was. Iâ€™ve now seen the kind of buying off of politicians that Iâ€™ve never seen before. Itâ€™s politically corrupt and itâ€™s starting at the top. Itâ€™s revolting. …
The Democrats are going to get killed in this election. Jesus, looks whatâ€™s happening in Massachusetts.
Itâ€™s really interesting because he had brilliant, brilliant political instincts during the campaign. I donâ€™t know what has happened to them. His appointments present somebody who has a lot to learn about how government works. He better get some very talented businesspeople who know how to implement things. Itâ€™s unbelievable. Everybody says so. You canâ€™t believe how dismayed people are. Thatâ€™s why heâ€™s plunging in the polls.
I canâ€™t predict things two years from now, but if he continues on the downward spiral he is on, he wonâ€™t be reelected. In the meantime, the Democrats have recreated the Republican Party. And when I say Democrats, I mean the Obama administration. In the generic vote, the Democrats were ahead something like 52 to 30. They are now behind the Republicans 48 to 44 in the last poll. Nobody has ever seen anything that dramatic.
