Back in the good old days, before Obamacare became law, much hay was made of poll numbers indicating the majority of Americans were against it. The dramatic election of Scott Brown to the Senate seat previously held by the late Ted Kennedy was likewise seen as a referendum against Obamacare. The simple analysis was that everyone who opposed the planned health care reform preferred a free market solution. That assumption was incorrect. A significant amount of the opposition to Obamacare was from radical leftists who wanted “single payer now.”

As mind-numbing as it may be to contemplate, a similar trend is now apparent in President Obama’s overall rating. The 46% approval number is not entirely due to moderates and conservatives. Many in Hollywood are upset because Obama has not moved us toward their imagined leftist utopia fast enough. These voices ought to concern us a great deal, since the actions of the Obama administration, and their allies in Congress, have been dismissive of both the will of the people and the rule of law.

FOXNews.com interviewed several celebrities over the past several weeks who supported Obama’s candidacy. A year-and-change into his first term, many are expressing disappointment regarding his positions on such issues as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, gay marriage, health care and the economy, among other things.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is upset that the slow pace with which the President has moved troops out of combat operations overseas. “We need to get out of the wars, we’re going through the same thing as Vietnam right now,” Hefner told Pop Tarts. “We can’t please the world and all we do is make enemies.”

Hefner’s stated concern is indicative of many who protested the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush administration. He here breaks ranks with the Obama faithful by saying it out loud.

Actress Rose McGowan is peeved that the President is, in her point of view, so “moderate” when going up against Republicans, and that he is yet to make gay marriage the “national law…”

How frightening is that? McGowan is apparently under the impression the president can legislate. Worse, she seems unfamiliar with the limitations the Ninth and Tenth Amendments place upon the federal government.
