Unfortunately, that is the only guiding principle Obama has — compromise. But that is no principle at all. What if I wanted to sell you a car for $10,000 and you offered me $1? Would compromise dictate that I sell it to you for $5,000? For $2? What if the car is really worth about $10,000, should I compromise anyway? Compromise is a tactic, it’s not a principle. It doesn’t give you the right answer. It is sometimes necessary, but offers no guidance in what should be the final outcome.

Putting the source of this quote aside for a moment, I find that it is 100% accurate. Compromise IS a tactic, which we are far too often told is the destination, rather than a means for getting to the destination. But it is not the only way to travel- and sometimes, it isn’t the right means of travel in the first place.

We have $14.5 trillion in debt. For the baby that was just born, they come into this world with over $48,000 debt hung around their neck. By the end of this decade, that will nearly double to $90,000. Any other activity this self-destructive would require institutionalism, yet we have an Administration arguing that spending more money we don’t have will somehow fix a debt problem.

Which brings us to the second unlikely money quote:

If the clever guys at the White House don’t realize they’ve hit their tipping point, they’re in for a rude awakening when that tsunami washes over them. They’re headed into the 30s in the polls and I don’t think they have any clue how to get out of there. They don’t even know that they’re about to hit an iceberg. They think they’re just one more compromise from turning the corner.

Personally, I think the tipping point was in June of 2009 when Obamacare was forced down the throat of the American people, but to see liberals completely lose faith in their messiah almost brings about some Hope that we can get some Change around here. This Administration has been an abject nightmare, a catastrophe of unprecedented proportions. Put succinctly: Epic Fail.

Case in point:

Gallupdelivers two blasts at the Obama administration today for its handling of the economy. The first comes in its daily tracking poll, which reacted rather badly to Barack Obama’s speech from the White House yesterday. His approval rating dropped three points to its previous low of 40% after only one cycle of polling. Disapproval rose back to 50%, up two points from the day before. That sharp drop could amplify over the next couple of days, especially considering the beating Obama is taking across the political spectrum for his ill-considered rehash of an address. It’s possible that we will see Obama drop below 40% for the first time ever as Saturday and Sunday responses roll out of the survey data.

Or…

A majority Americans believe President Obama doesn’t deserve to win reelection in 2012, according to a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll.

Fifty-one percent of voters surveyed said they don’t think Obama should have a second term at the White House, while 47 percent signaled that he deserves four more years.

There are now, a large pluralities of polls that point to universal discontent with the Administration and its handling of a multitude of issues, especially the economy. I’ve said this before, Obama will lose in 2012, so will the Dems in the Senate returning the power in Washington to the GOP who0 will have to figure out how to fix the mess left by liberalism.
