Looking back, with the perspective of time, we should not have been surprised that the country lost confidence in President Obama by July 2010. He had been a man of little experience and an extreme agenda that he was intent on implementing. As as series of important things progressively worsened, the prospect for the future for the president seemed quite grim. Despite the Obama cheerleaders, normal people viewed the economy as getting worse, not recovering. They viewed his policies as increasing the difficulties, not easing them. The next question was how the election in November 2010 would go for the president and his party. The insiders thought that the president secretly wanted his party to lose, so that he would be able to blame Republicans in the House and Senate for the country's woes.
