After 100 days of the Obama administration, the groups of people who support him can be compared the the parable of “Dirty Bathwater Parable”.
The first group of voters knew instictively that dirty bathwater tastes bad – no need to sip it to prove themselves right. Everything Obama has done has proved them right.
The second group of voters knew that dirty bathwater probably tastes bad, but they were intent on sampling it anyway, just to be sure. By the first 100 days, after a few sips, this group learned the lesson the hard way and they now know that dirty bathwater tastes bad.
The third group of voters rejected the fact that dirty bathwater tastes bad. They are now drinking it by the glassful. They have some vague feeling that something is not right, but they continue to imbide freely believing that if they just drink more it will start to taste better. This group of voters may, or may not, ever clue in to the fact that dirty bathwater tastes bad. It may take some cataclysmic event in their own lives to make them change their minds.
The fourth group of voters were convinced that dirty bathwater tastes great. They are drinking it by the gallonful. The more they drink, the better it tastes. Nothing will make them change their thinking. They will drink it until it kills them.
Now the question is, what percentage of the poplulation does each group represent? If the first two groups represent the majority, then there is hope for the country. If not, then America is on an irreversible course towards its ultimate demise.
