The problem with the US President’s poll numbers is that he doesn’t quite grasp the reason he was elected.
Politicians, Madison Avenue advertising guru’s, and Wall Street types all know that a campaign is not so different than GM, Ford or Chrysler marketing and advertising a new car for sale. Why is the American public, the general population, so stupid to believe that EVERYTHING isn’t already polled, focus grouped, and the result known before it happens! Are you kidding me?…American politics is probably the largest money’s spent to advertise and analyze selling potential of any “business” enterprise!
Dear Mr President, you perfected “Pennsylvania Avenue Politics” (advertising agency campaigning)! Congrats to your advertising agency which packaged you up with a nice little bow telling us what we all wanted to hear!
Unfortunately for many inventors who “invent” or perfect an incredible idea, they are not the one who ultimately profits from them! And I honestly think you know this, as it seems you already know you won’t be reelected. I also think that another campaign you really don’t want and your heart is not in it.

Your poll number are not good, NOT because of the economy or anything to do with people out of work. You give yourself too much credit and are believing what your advertising agency is branding you as instead of the true measure of yourself or your Presidency! It’s all hype Mr President! A marketing message. Don’t believe everything you read or everything your inner sanctum of “smoke blowers” whisper into your ear (or other places) about how wonderful you are.
People, in all cultures want someone to lead us. You have not done this. You SOLD “us”, the American people out once you got our votes. You have called us stupid, and compared “us” to a herd of sheep that you can “manage” in any way you want. Your advertising agency fed us a bunch of words that “we” wanted so much to believe. We wanted you to be the man who would finally be true to your words. Only your words, proved to hold no substance…..just words.
You were elected because you promised us all “change”. You told us that you were going to change the way Washington works, in that “we” the people who elected you thought you were going to stop the “political” bickering and political posturing that is put BEFORE “WE THE PEOPLE” as normal course in Washington!
You were elected because we wanted to believe that you could make “our land”, to be “the land of the people”, to be a nice place for EVERYONE to live and prosper!
In all honesty, you could have had the policy that we all would have to stand on our heads and sing the American Anthem every Monday at noon and we would have elected you. Why? Because we wanted someone finally to not be part of the corruption of government but instead we got you…..you are just as corrupt Mr President as what we wanted to “change”! It’s shame, we had great “hope” for you!
You told us you were “different” and that you represented “us” the people and “we” were going to do things the right way. But you have proven to just be another politician who can’t be trusted to be “one of us”, the people.
You have proven yourself Mr President to be a fake, an impostor, a snake oil salesperson. We elected you because you promised “hope and change”, but what we all got was, “say whatever you can to get elected” speeches written by some Madison Avenue advertising agency telling us what we wanted to hear that you read off of a teleprompter!
Shame on you Mr President! Fool us once shame on you, fool us twice shame on us!
