We in the Tea Party always knew they though Obama was the next great coming of our Lord and Savior. From all the great prose that was written about his election, to his own declaration on election night that the “The seas will recede. The planet will heal.” But now after 5 years of disappointment Baba Wawa admits, during the Christmas season no-less, the result is so crushing, because the expectation was so high.
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
BARBARA WALTERS: Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.
It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they’ve dropped. But you know, he still has several years to go. What does he have, three years, Piers? And, you know, there will be a lot of changes, one thinks in that time.
Luckily, I had no expectation other than what has happened. Obama’s economic policies are a disaster, his healthcare law is a disaster, his gun confiscation desires are a disaster, and there is no doubt that his unfettered, unchecked, illegal immigration policy will be a disaster. My only hope at this point is that the vast majority of Americans will finally see how disastrous this man and more importantly, these policies, are for our country and in 2016 they will do something about it. I hate to say I told you so…….but I did.
