While totally predictable, recent polling has suggested that the core, targeted constituencies of Barack Obama are less than enthused with his record. According to a Neil Munro post at the Daily Caller today:
The bloc of “unmarried women, people of color, and younger voters — comprises a rapidly growing majority of the eligible voting population in this country … [but they] are not hearing an economic narrative that speaks to their problems and concerns or convinces them that their leaders have the ability to solve those problems,” says the Aug. 24 report titled “Creating a New Economic Narrative; Engaging the Rising American Electorate for 2012.”
Munro goes on to suggest that the Obama administration’s outreach to these groups is being eroded by union displeasure, as voiced by AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka on Wednesday:
…fewer working-class voters will turn out in 2012 unless Obama can persuade them that their votes can change government policy. “Give them the narrative about why it will work,” he said at a press breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor.
Meanwhile, the Obama campaign’s Project Vote effort says it will work to ”engage key demographic groups, such as African Americans, Women, Youth, Latinos, LGBT, Veterans, Asian Americans and others.”
I have an idea. How about dumping the Obama agenda and getting behind a true, market-based advocate like Sarah Palin? I’m going to quote Rush Limbaugh: “Conservatism works every time it’s tried!” Sarah understands the power of the free-market and also understands the oppressive nature of governmental regulation. I’m going to dedicate this Sunday’s The Roderic Deane Show to examining the disastrous effects of government regulation and why it should be at the very top of the list of any conservative candidate.
If Sarah could spur energy production, rein in government regulation and end out-of-control government programs like Obamacare, she will ignite a period of economic growth unseen since Ronald Reagan’s term as President. Further, she chafes at the idea of crony capitalism, which seems to haunt my vaunted Governor, Rick Perry. In all good conscience, I cannot endorse Rick Perry for the Presidency. His tendencies remind me too much of George Bush’s “compassionate conservatism” and his record suggests a willingness to support crony capitalism. Conservatism doesn’t need an adjective, it only needs an exclamation point!
Sarah Palin’s accomplishments offer none of the concerns that Rick Perry’s do. All you have to do is read the record. The truth will set you free!
