DANA POINT, CA, September 19, 2012 - In my medical practice—and my work to preserve the doctor-patient relationship in today’s era of growing government intrusion into private medical practices—one thing is abundantly clear: very few doctors who voted for the President the first time around plan on repeating their behavior on November 6th.
Is this pattern at play in the general population as well?
An unofficial survey by America’s Medical Society puts the number of private practice doctors planning on voting for Mr. Obama in 2012 at just under 26%.
There’s a suspicion amongst Democratic leaders, and unofficial ‘media’ agents for the Obama campaign, that Mitt Romney is really ahead by a margin of 3-5% greater than indicated in the often proffered, ill-touted polls. The reason for this is not merely biased sampling error (e.g., phoning a greater number of Democrats because there are more of them registered in a given district) but also a phenomenon of ‘buyer’s fatigue’. In simple terms, this means that people are getting tired of President Obama, and they are willing to cast their hope that Mitt Romney can do a better job.
Despite the media frenzy surrounding the self-described “gaffes” and “errors” committed by Mr. Romney of late, the Obama talking head surrogates know full well that their feigned indignation is wearing thin before a more intelligent American audience.
People can see through the fake controversies, and parsed words, and are beginning to make themselves clear—Obama has had his chance and now it’s time for someone else to try their hand in the White House.
Fortunately for Governor Romney, Americans are not easily fooled. With a chronically diminished audience and third-tiered status in the cable TV world, Rachel Maddow and her pathetically biased MSNBC colleagues know that the window for their anti-Romney tricks is closing fast.
Despite the multi-network effort by ‘all the King’s horses and all the King’s men’, the Humpty-Dumpty presidency of Barrack Obama cannot be pieced together as it once way just shortly after his inauguration. Chris Matthews, Ed, Maddow and their colleagues (and, for that matter, Huffington, Cooper, etc.) cannot distract us well enough to forget about the nation’s exponentially-growing debt. The country knows there is something oddly remiss when their suspicion of collusion between the liberal/mainstream media and the Obama campaign grows eerily more real with each passing news day.
One only has to listen to most of the election commentators, across the various TV, radio and print mediums, to realize that it’s not about the subject matter (national security, health care, etc.) but rather about anything Mr. Romney says. If the former Massachusetts Governor were to say there was a beautiful rainbow on the horizon beyond the fading dark skies, he would be accused of having his head in the clouds; if Barrack Obama were to make the same reference, he would be proclaimed eloquent and inspiring.
Mitt Romney is a decent man, with a decent message—whether you believe all of his convictions or not, he makes very good points about the need to foster personal responsibility and free markets, and the need to preserve small businesses, superior American medical systems, and fiscal conservatism to pass on to future generations in America.
Barrack Obama was hopeful and full of change, but now the country is ready for some plain old realism. Humpty Dumpty has fallen from grace, and no amount of conspiring by the American media can cover that up.
