Dwight Flight (from reason)

Tennessean columnist Dwight Lewis recently proclaimed this: "[President B. Hussein] Obama is in firm control." Given that Obama has convinced himself that it is within his constitutional purview to arbitrarily fire corporate CEOs, him being in firm control of anything should scare the bejesus out of all liberty-loving individuals ... and then some.

Not to be outdone with his "in control" assertion, Lewis has proclaimed Obama's genius by relating news of a recent AP-GfK poll which shows that Americans, by a 48-44 margin, believe that America is headed in the right direction.

That said, I have a bit of news for one Dwight Lewis: Polls are like 49-year-old women in a singles bar. Look around for a bit and you'll find one who's willing to go home with you.

The most recent Real Clear Politics poll reveals a Right Track/Wrong Track spread of -8.1 (RT 43.2/WT 51.3). Furthermore, the Democrat-controlled Congress has a -24.7 approve/disapprove spread (Approve 34.3/Disapprove 59.0) according to RCP. Funny how Dwight Lewis didn't mention that.

About the same time that Sunday's Tennessean -- with Dwight Lewis' pro-Obama sycophantic screeding -- hit my doorstep, Obama staffer Layne Anderson was appearing on NewsChannel 5's Inside Politics program. Ms. Anderson said this 'bout her boss:

"He could read the phonebook and have it work well for him."

If Mr. Obama ever gives a major speech in which he reads from a phone book, Dwight Lewis will no doubt sing his praises: "Another 'first' for our historic president!" he'll say. And when I ask why the Prez of the U.S.A. was crazy enough to incorporate passages from the phone book in a major speech, I'll be branded as a "racist" ... and Lewis will produce a poll to prove it!
