Racism a Reason for My Ugly Approval Ratings!
The president has a new theory as to why he’s not as popular as he once was:racism.
To a certain extent…okay. Maybe some Americans are blinded by their hatred for this president because of his race, and therefore would never approve of the job he’s doing in office -- as sad as that is to admit in print. But of course this is a very, very small percentage of the population overall. And furthermore, these malcontents would never have approved of him in the first place. So how does he explain a demographic that never liked him, much less approved of his job performance, now suddenly jumping ship? Doesn’t make much sense if you ask me; there must be another explanation.
This seems like a lame excuse from an increasingly desperate president. A better explanation for his sinking approval numbers is perhaps the most recent jobs report, his foreign policies missteps, and his foundering signature health care law. But, according to him, evidently his race -- not his job performance -- is contributing to his unpopularity.
The truth is a lot more complicated.
