"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

Preference Cascade Update

I could have predicted this:

The percentage of American men saying they approve of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president hit an all-time low of 36 percent in the Gallup poll last week.

That is down from a peak of 64 percent approval among men that Obama received in the seven-day period that ended on Jan. 25, 2009, the week he was inaugurated.

It's not surprising that American men disapprove that a knee-jerk liberal, affirmative action baby, throw-like-a-girl pansy, particularly where his "stimulus" packages seem to stimulate jobs for sit-on-their-asses government paper-pushers, all the while the "mancession" continues in which blue-collar working men can't find real work in business or manufacturing or construction.   It's even less surprising when you consider that the one thing men look for in other men is to not be full of shit, and Obama, if anything, is the king of bullshitters.   He's like the geek in school who always had a canned answer for the teachers' questions, and got good grades, but never said anything interesting, then sat back in his chair with his perfectly-creased pants and a self-satisfied look on his nerdy face.   He's Urkel without the glasses.   Real men beat up guys like that in the locker room after intramurals.   

By way of jogging our collective memory, here's both Bush and Obama throwing out a first pitch. Compare and contrast:
