Californians love Obama
The majority want to see him have a second term — including 17% of Republicans!
It seems counterintuitive, I realize — after all, near 13% unemployment and gas prices that could reach $5 a gallon tends to stall an economy already on the way to utter failure — but then, I suppose even Californians are savvy enough to know that should the state need some sort of bailout from its decades of poor Democrat management and the unfunded liabilities brought about through the kind of insane entitlement promises that the Democrats (and even some Republicans) have used to buy power, they aren’t likely to get much from a conservative.
Should Texas begin pining for more Obama, I’d begin to worry. But in this case, I suspect the real reason Californians continue to claim an affinity to Obama is that he, like them, is a failure pretending to be a hip success — and that to the majority of Californians, image and perception supersede reality as a form of cultural grounding.
And of course, there’s something to be said for the comforts of willful blindness.
