Mr. Hope and Change better wish for a lot of hope and change before the November election. He has created some big problems for himself.

First and foremost is the Catholic vote. He carried the last election with Catholics by a large margin. In the 2010 midterm election Democrats lost the Catholic vote by a similar margin. This time that margin will be much bigger. Catholics are 20% of the total voter population. He has big problems. The 2010 switch was before his latest stunt. He is trying to do damage control, but pundits don’t expect that to help.

He carried the Jewish vote by a bigger margin in 2008. He will lose much of that this time. In addition, he will lose much of the political contributions he got from Jews. Except, Hollywood, of course. Chalk that up to brain damage.

He carried the female vote in 2008. Polls show that is going the other direction. Experts attribute that to the deficits he is running up. Women who run household budgets are intolerant of excess spending. They stay within their budgets despite the higher costs for budget items like food and gasoline.

Speaking of gasoline, if the predictions are correct and we see $5 gasoline this year, he is in big trouble. The Keystone Pipeline and his many promises to open Alaska and offshore, which are blatant lies, will make it difficult for him to place that blame elsewhere.

He has hitched his star to the far left liberal vote, which is no more than 25% of the voting public, the environmental vote, and those who depend on the government. Even the unions are upset over the Keystone Pipeline decision.

Wall Street, which was solidly behind Obama, have found him to be untrustworthy. He has done everything he can do to upset that powerful group. Dodd/Frank being utmost.

With the title of this blog, I had to include this joke someone sent me.

Let’s just hope that Obama keeps listening to the real president, Valarie Jarret. She’s our best friend in the White House.
