Conservatism mixed with a little end time theology

Has Barack Obama Lost Jon Stewart?

History really does repeat itself.

If you look back to the 1960’s, Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson enjoyed a time of much popularity early on in his presidency.  His support for the “War on Poverty,” Medicare and Medicaid, and environmental protection gave him a monumental margin of victory in the 1964 election.

However, his popularity would soon plummet amidst the chaos of the Vietnam War.  In 1968, everything came to a head when Walter Cronkite, an up-and-coming newscaster, made the famous ‘unwinnable‘ comment about the Vietnam War.  What was President Johnson’s reaction to Cronkite’s claim?

“If I’ve lost Walter Cronkite, I’ve lost middle America”

Here’s a picture of the atmosphere from good ol’ Wikipedia:

As casualties mounted and success seemed further away than ever, Johnson’s popularity plummeted. College students and others protested, burned draft cards, and chanted, “Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?”

Johnson…was not allowed by the Secret Service to attend the 1968 Democratic National Convention, where hundreds of thousands of hippies, yippies, Black Panthers and other opponents of Johnson’s policies both in Vietnam and in the ghettos converged to protest.

Do you want to know what’s really interesting about this?  By the 1968 Presidential election, the Democrat Party was in such disarray that it split into 4 factions with all 4 quarreling and bickering with one another

We could very well be looking at a very similar scenario today.

Even though he calls himself a ‘fake journalist,’ Comedy Central news host Jon Stewart is considered to be one of the top sources of news for Americans between the ages of 18-34.  So, when you see Mr. Stewart – a liberal – begin to criticize Barack Hussein Obama over his ridiculous and contradictory policies, it makes you wonder:

Has Barack Obama lost Jon Stewart and thus has he lost middle America?

Here are some examples of Jon’s recent disapproval with BHO:

This is just a taste, and I think it’s safe to say we could expect more in the future.  (Just a note, I don’t typically watch Jon Stewart as he is normally quite liberal; If you’re in the same boat as I am and aren’t too familiar with Mr. Stewart, just know that the profanity in the videos has been bleeped out :))

It might be too early to tell, but the signs clearly point to the self-destruction of the Democrat Party.

Only time will tell.

    I agree – it normally is quite painful to hear Jon Stewart. However, it is nice to hear someone with influence on the left begin to point out the enormous flaws with BHO’s policies. Some of the things coming out of the ‘state-run’ media are really frustrating, sometimes unbelievable. Did you hear about Gibson saying he hadn’t even heard of the ACORN fallout?

    C’mon!

    I think the talk radio heads have it right – where has investigative journalism gone?

    Great post! John Stweart makes me heave! But I agree.. When those that ride on the liberal band-wagon start showing signs of distress and outrage, it could mean the party’s over. When will that other dirt-mouth Bill Maher start showing signs of distress?
