So if you watched "Red Eye" this week, you heard us mention a poll reporting that roughly six out of 10 Americans have lost faith in our commander-in-chief.
Here's liberal radio host Bill Press puking up his thoughts:
(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)
BILL PRESS, "THE BILL PRESS SHOW": I think this says more about the American people than it does about President Obama. I think it just shows once again that the American people are spoiled; basically spoiled. We are — as a people, we are too critical; we are too quick to rush to judgment; we are too negative; we are too impatient — especially impatient. We want it all solved yesterday. And if you don't, I don't care who you are, get out of the way. And again, basically spoiled to the point where it makes me wonder if it's even possible to govern today.
I've got to tell you, I don't think Abraham Lincoln — who certainly didn't get everything right the first time — could govern today. I'm not sure Franklin Roosevelt could govern today, the way we are again just about like spoiled children. And it's American and it's the media.

And that's the left, in a nutshell: When our stupid ideas fail, it's not our fault, it's yours. Or it's not Obama, it's you.
Yes, damn you America for expecting competence from your leaders! Damn you America for not embracing 10 percent unemployment! Damn you America for speaking your mind about health care when you should have just shut up! And damn you America for being so hard on the commander-in-cuteness!
This kills me, because if you know Bill Press, you know no one was more vile to President Bush than that dude. Being too critical, too negative and too quick to judge? That's Press' career in 10 words.
Look, the media loves Obama so much that the public's dissatisfaction is a big buzz kill. Rather than admit they might be wrong, they search for answers — meaning we're just spoiled children. And don't forget racist.
Lastly, to his point that we live in a time where it's getting impossible to govern: This is the same thing Woody Allen pointed out earlier this year, that our country would be better off if we just suspended democracy and let Obama dictate.
Press didn't say it, but in his sad, bitter voice, he felt it in his bones.
And you disagree with me, you're a racist, spoiled, homophobic Obama-hating child.
