I just pulled this shot off of Drudge showing the ‘morning after’ reaction to Barry and the whole BP oil disaster.

It just keeps dropping. Teleprompterboy was never qualified to hold this office and now we have the perfect storm of BP’s oil spewing crisis, North Korea going sideways again, Iran getting nukes, Wall Street tweaking, BIS trying to control all the money, Europe on fire, China getting edgy about our debt, Arizona doing the feds’ job, and Joe Sestak’s statement that he was offered a job. The White House isn’t denying it, rather they are saying nothing inappropriate happened. Remember, half truths are much easier to slide by the public than full out lies. Impeachment is looking more and more possible…
Thought you might like to see this graph also. It looks exactly the way I expected it would.
The District of Criminals did not listen to us about the bank bailouts, TARP, the Porkulus, Cap & Tax, or healthcare reform. We know they are not going to be listening now even though 61% of Americans want congress to completely start over on health care according to Rasmussen. Is it any wonder we want to flip the entire congress to constitutionalists that might actually listen to us and who will neuter Barack’s ambitions?
President Obama this week called for a televised bipartisan summit to get his health care reform plan back on track, but 61% of U.S. voters say Congress should scrap that plan and start all over again.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds just 28% who think it is better to build on the health care plan that has been working its way through the House and Senate.
Support for and opposition to the existing plan remain at the same levels they’ve been at since just after Thanksgiving.
Only 35% of voters believe Congress should pass health care reform before the upcoming midterm elections anyway. Fifty-four percent (54%) say Congress should wait until voters select new congressional representatives in November.
Check out this paragraph and percentile. (emphasis mine)
It’s interesting to note that in a separate survey earlier this week 63% of voters said, generally speaking, it would be better for the country if most incumbents in Congress were defeated this November. Just 27% now believe their current congressman is the best person for the job.
Here are the numbers by party and ‘class’:
Similarly, 66% of Democrats think Congress should pass health care reform before the November elections. Eighty percent (80%) of Republicans and 59% of unaffiliateds say it’s better to wait until voters select a new Congress.
Democrats have consistently rated health care reform as the most important of the president’s budget priorities, while GOP and unaffiliated voters put deficit reduction in first place.
Voters in the president’s party also continue to be the strongest supporters of the present health care plan: 72% favor it, including 37% who strongly favor it.
By contrast, 89% of Republicans and 66% of unaffiliated voters oppose the plan. Those numbers include 75% and 57% respectively who strongly oppose the president’s plan.
The Political Class, as is generally the case, doesn’t see eye-to-eye with Mainstream voters on the issue. While 75% of Mainstream voters oppose the plan, 87% of the Political Class favors it.
Eighty-five percent (85%) of the Political Class say it’s better to build on the current plan, but 74% of Mainstream voters say Congress should start all over again.
Eighty-two percent (82%) of the Political Class say Congress should pass health care reform before the midterm elections. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Mainstream voters want to wait until after voters select a new Congress in November.
For now at least, voter unhappiness with the health care reform plan seems to be hurting the reelection chances of incumbent Democratic senators in several states including Arkansas, California, Colorado, Indiana, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Proof positive that we are stupider than we think…the political class must know what is best for us…
It is not like we were oblivious to the attacks coming from the liberal left wing of the democratic party all of 2009. According to Homeland Security, anyone that has actually read the Constitution might be considered a right wing domestic terrorist. Remember when Nancy Pelosi said that the astroturfing tea partiers were brandishing swastikas, and spouting rhetoric that might incite violence? What about being called tea-baggers, racists, and the angry mob? The instances went on for months, and they are a page right out of Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals‘.
So I am not surprised to see that the Dems have gone after Scott Rasmussen of Rasmussen Reports. Barack Obama’s worsening poll numbers have nothing to do with terrorist attacks, vacations, golfing, 10% unemployment, yada, yada, yada. It’s all because Scott Rasmussen is underpolling Bambi.
Low favorables: Dems rip Rasmussen
Democrats are turning their fire on Scott Rasmussen, the prolific independent pollster whose surveys on elections, President Obama’s popularity and a host of other issues are surfacing in the media with increasing frequency.
The pointed attacks reflect a hardening conventional wisdom among prominent liberal bloggers and many Democrats that Rasmussen Reports polls are, at best, the result of a flawed polling model and, at worst, designed to undermine Democratic politicians and the party’s national agenda.
On progressive-oriented websites, anti-Rasmussen sentiment is an article of faith. “Rasmussen Caught With Their Thumb on the Scale,” blared the Daily Kos this summer. “Rasmussen Reports, You Decide,” the blog Swing State Project recently headlined in a play on the Fox News motto.
Divert attention from your steadily worsening situation due to your own actions by blaming someone else.
Nothing, however, sets off liberal teeth gnashing more than Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking polls, which throughout the year have consistently placed Obama’s approval numbers around 5 percentage points lower than other polling outfits.
“He polls less favorably for Democrats, and that’s why he’s become a lightning rod,” said Charles Franklin, a University of Wisconsin political scientist who studies polling. “It’s clear that his results are typically more Republican than the other person’s results.”
On Saturday, Dec. 26, for example, Rasmussen’s daily tracking had Obama’s approval at 44 percent, with a disapproval figure of 56 percent. A Real Clear Politics compilation of other pollsters, meanwhile, showed Obama with an average approval figure of 49.5 percent and disapproval of 45.1 percent.
“He’s been underpolling Obama all year,” said Boehlert. “People start thinking, ‘There’s something going on here.’”
If there is any underpolling occurring, it’s with the actual percentages of Americans that are waking up and getting very angry about all the red ink, the czars, the mandated healthcare, etc. A perfect example is the poll I was looking at yesterday; “47% Believe States Should Have Right to Opt Out of Health Care Plan“. AYFKM? Only 47% of Americans, currently, understand that the federal government should not be dictating to the states? On second thought, that might actually be correct, a product of our ridiculous public schools, and a pathetic statement of our times.
Here is the true reason that Rasmussen’s polls look the way they do, and is very telling of the 2010 and 2012 elections.
Rasmussen, for his part, explained that his numbers are trending Republican simply because he is screening for only those voters most likely to head to the polls — a pool of respondents, he argues, that just so happens to bend more conservative this election cycle.
You may or may not want to go over and read the rest of the article which has moonbats whining about question phrasing.
21 straight months of job losses.
62% of Americans believe that their childrens lives will not be better than theirs.
Are we all wrong, or is it because we don’t get to use the federal credit card every time we or our friends get into trouble?
Ready to flip this Congress and White House back to fiscally responsible Americans?
Ready to get rid of The Federal Reserve and Federal Reserve Notes?
Ready to make this government live within it’s means?
Ready to stop the trainwreck that the two-party system controlled by progressive socialists has put us on?
I rarely tell somebody “I Told You So” because so often it comes back around to bite ya in the butt, but this is one situation where I am comfortable making the statement “We Told You!” about the coming Obama Idiocy because America is now so incredibly on fire due to decisions and programs that former administrations and congresses have made since Teddy Roosevelt that Obama and his socialist absorption of our entire economy is just the final straw on the camel’s back.
We told you this guy was a fraud and a poseur, and 69 million lemmings still decided that buying this guy’s marketed image as the savior was going to cut it.
Too bad reality is still kicking his butt. Too bad that the “Silent Majority” has woken up and is no longer silent. The rest of America is NOT going to be held hostage by those 69 million that rolled the dice and doubled down.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-seven percent (37%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8 (see trends).
Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That’s the lowest level of total approval yet recorded. The President’s ratings first fell below 50% just a few weeks ago on July 25. Fifty-two percent (52%) now disapprove.
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans disapprove along with 65% of those not affiliated with either party. Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Democrats offer their approval. Most women (51%) offer their approval while most men (56%) disapprove. For more measures of the President’s performance, see Obama By the Numbers and recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls.
Or how about this one?
Most voters (60%) continue to believe the nation is heading down the wrong track, although that number is unchanged from a week ago. But it’s down three points from the third week in January.
The percentage of voters who believe the country is moving in the right direction spiked at 40% in early May, hovered around 37% through June and now has been in the low- to mid-30s over the past month. The latest finding is up 14 points from the week Obama was elected president in November.
The numbers do not lie. We are still losing jobs, the unemployment percentage is wrong because it does not include people that are partially employed and on the way to full unemployment (like myself), the people that are no longer getting benefits but are still without a job, and those that have stopped looking. The commercial real estate bubble is about to pop, the banks are still underwater, this administration is trying to absorb almost all of the economy, David Axelrod is sending emails trying to counter the “un-American” protestors, and Robert Gibbs saying that the townhall protests are not indicative of what is really happening in America. Sorry Robbie – there are many more of us and we are telling everybody!
Kids, we are broke, broke, broke…and Obama and the Fed printing money like there is no tomorrow is NOT GOING TO HELP!
OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION ARE SOCIALIST FOOLS!
