More eye-opening than the dopio macchiato I ordered at Starbucks was the headline in the newspaper below the register. At the top of the front page of the Washington Post, the headline read, “Six in Ten American Lack Faith in Obama."
The story continued, “Nearly six in 10 voters say they lack faith in the president to make the right decisions for the country, and a clear majority once again disapproves of how he is dealing with the economy.” (Perhaps realizing it had gone too far, the online headline differed from the print edition, watered down to read, "Confidence in Obama Reaches New Low").
The fact that most Americans have no faith in President Teleprompter comes as no surprise, but that the Washington Post, of all papers, would run such a story above the fold on the front page is particularly telling. If a Democrat can maintain the support of neither Barbara Streisand nor the Washington Post, you know the wheels are really coming off.
UPDATE: Add political heavyweight Roseanne Barr and ET (aka James Carville) to the list.
