Richmond, VA (PRWEB) February 15, 2010
A recent survey of 2,617 registered voters by Quinnipiac University indicates 73 percent are unhappy with the way the USA is headed, and the figures imply many may believe President Obama is at least partially to blame. For example, by 54 percent to 41 percent they disapprove of President Obama's handling of the economy, and by 58 percent to 35 percent they disapprove of how Obama is handling the push to overhaul the country's health care system. This, coupled with recent Democratic Party candidate defeats in Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts has led the leadership of The Oaklea Press, a book publishing company located in Richmond, Virginia, to believe that a significant percentage of the public has concluded Obama has turned out to be "Obummer."
The firm's publisher, Steve Martin, said, "A lot of people still like Obama on a personal level because he does appear to be a likable guy. But increasingly, I believe they see his presidency as inept. He made a lot of promises [during the campaign] he hasn't delivered on. People are becoming fed up. Our Obummer sticker gives them a way to vent their frustration--to show others how they feel. And frankly, I think it's good for the country, and it potentially can be good for Obama. If enough people display an Obummer sticker, perhaps he and the people in his administration will start to get the message and begin to make some sorely needed changes. As has been suggested by Doug Wilder, time is running out to turn around a deteriorating situation."
Douglas Wilder of Virginia was the nation's first black governor and is a former mayor of Richmond, who wrote in a column recently published by Politico.com, "The need is becoming more obvious by the day: [Obama] must overhaul his own team, replacing the admittedly brilliant advisers who helped elect him with others more capable of helping him govern. Getting elected and getting things done for the people are two different jobs."
The Oaklea Press has set up a Web site, http://www.Obummer12.com, where the Obummer sticker can be purchased. The firm was established in 1995 and publishes several lines of books, including business management, fiction, and self help titles.
