Julia Gillard’s problems stem mostly from her deceit of the Australian people over the carbon tax. The polling data shows a divergence in the two-party prefered vote just after she announced her back flip.”]
She is having a tough time because of her own doing, yet she has now suggested that the reason the Australian people aren’t warming to her is gender-based, rather than policy-based.
”I’m good mates with Barack Obama,” Ms Gillard was quoted as saying.
”I tell him, ‘you think it’s tough being African-American? Try being me. Try being an atheist, childless, single woman as prime minister’.”
This is nothing but a pathetic excuse and a denial of the real problem. She demonstrates the leftist tendency to invoke a sense of victimisation and the ingrained need to think of someone as oppressed and down-trodden because of a particular demographic they belong to. Unless she faces and publicly acknowledges her deception, there can be no improvement in the polls.
Obama’s problem is not racism, but his economic performance, the ever-growing debt, the soon-to-be-declared-unconstitutional Obamacare, gas prices, green energy waste, his conflict with the Catholic Church and the endless supply of apologies ect. Likewise, Gillard’s is not sexism, but a pointless tax that will hurt Australian families for no environmental gain and the concerning influence of the Greens on her government.
