Obama and the Democrats: If your cornfield is far from your house, the birds will eat your corn.

You do not have to be a psychic or a voodoo priest to predict dark days ahead for the Democrats. Losing Ted Kennedy‘s seat is a sign.  They also showed that they are unable to stay united and on track. For sure they are going to pay very heavily in the next mid-term elections if the unemployment numbers do not fall from now to November. Health care reform is in serious trouble due in part to the President’s own political party.

I have seen in the eyes of the President the sign of urgency and worry. Clearly there is a disconnect between politics and the people of America. The Democrats are out of touch with reality and the people of Massachusetts are a sample of what the American people are thinking in general. This reminds us that  rhetoric and action can be married but still can be sleeping in two different rooms.

If the Democrats cannot prevail, the people will vote for the opposite party even though they are not better. The keys for the Democrats are the independent voters who are becoming more and more like human yo-yos of American politics. As the pygmies of Congo/Gabon say, “If your cornfield is far from your house, the birds will eat your corn.”
