Columnist: American voters are 'spoiled brats

News

Nearly two years into his term, American voters seem to be turning against President Barack Obama and the Democrats' congressional agenda.  Why?  Not because they might disagree with his agenda to "fundamentally transform" the country, but, according to one Washington Post op-ed columnist, it's because American voters are just a bunch of childish "spoiled brats."   Eugene Robinson writes:

According to polls, Americans are in a mood to hold their breath until they turn blue. Voters appear to be so fed up with the Democrats that they're ready to toss them out in favor of the Republicans -- for whom, according to those same polls, the nation has even greater contempt. This isn't an "electoral wave," it's a temper tantrum. ...

In the punditry business, it's considered bad form to question the essential wisdom of the American people. But at this point, it's impossible to ignore the obvious: The American people are acting like a bunch of spoiled brats.

Robinson goes on to say that he's not making a "partisan argument," just pointing out Americans' refusal to look seriously at the nation's situation..."

Yeah, that doesn't sound partisan at all.
