Thirty-four percent [now] say Obama is the most to blame [for "paltry job growth and slow economic recovery"], followed by 23 percent who say Congress is the culprit. Twenty percent point the finger at Wall Street, and 18 percent cite former President George W. Bush.
No. But it is laughable. The poll was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, a spinoff of Rasmussen Reports, itself a creation of the far right's disinformation imperative.
So now Fox News and the right-wing blogosphere and the Reich Ministry of Talk Radio can get apeshit intoxicated in reporting this major public-opinion turnaround to their respective delusional markets; which is OK--don't panic, since delusion feeds chiefly on itself.
Which is my of saying, I guess, that at some point we must simply write off a sizable bloc of the American electorate as incurable. For at least 30 years the impotent Coalition of the Rational has tried sobbing and screaming and lecturing and alarm-ringing to reverse the delusional slide of pseudoconservative opinion, only to be handed in poll after poll and election after election the stubbornly consistent ignorance and dimwittedness of the Republican vote.
The consistency is hopeless. They're hopeless. Yet the despairing circumstance in which the rational find themselves isn't necessarily hopeless, because the opposing politico-demographic problem is quite literally dying off, each and every day.
And the far-right machinery knows it, which is why it gets so damn pickled on its own fabrications--it's an unsobering relief to the poor dears.
