Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 735 -- The Obama Curse.

Obama Is A Socialist Hell-Bent On Tranforming America Into Chicago/California/Michigan/Rhode Island-

After just one year in office, Obama is already an albatross for Democrats running for Governor, Senator, and other positions:

The party’s share of the gubernatorial vote in 2009 was down a dozen percentage points from Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential vote in each state. And in Massachusetts, the Democratic proportion of the Senate vote was down 15 points from Obama’s ‘08 showing. At no time during the presidency of George W. Bush did the Republican gubernatorial vote in Virginia and New Jersey decline more than 8 percentage points from the previous GOP presidential vote in the state.

Americans now have the most profound collective case of buyers' remorse in our nation's modern political history. People were upset by outrageous spending levels, bailouts, and other big government failures, so they elected something "different." They've quickly realized the "different" they chose was actually worse. Americans just want to be left alone to live the dream, without government's heavy debt burden, tax burden, and regulatory burden.

Brad Jackson noted that the Obama curse applies to more than politics. It apparently applies to college basketball as well:

At one point Obama said, “Man, I am honored to speak to the No. 1 team in the country.”

Not for long.

Later that evening, the number one Wildcats became another victim of the Obama curse, falling to South Carolina 68 – 62 behind the inspired play of the Game Cock’s Devan “Scott Brown” Downey. The Wildcats are no longer unbeaten and may not be number one again for next week’s poll. If you listen closely, you can almost here the groaning all the way back in Lexington, Kentucky, where someone is surely saying, “Thanks for nothing Obama.”

Obama still has time to turn things around, but right now he looks like a one termer and a failure, based on his own far-left ideological overreach.
