Political observer Rod Pennington says Obama’s numbers are significantly lower if the approval rating from black Americans is removed.
“What the poll fails to mention is the near universal support the President still enjoys among African-Americans which represent 14% of the population. If this support is subtracted from Mr. Obama, then he is somewhere in the range of 30% approval and 70% disapproval with all non-Blacks,”
The Obsolescence of Barack Obama
His fall from political grace has been as swift as his rise a handful of years ago. He had been hot political property in 2006 and, of course, in 2008. But now he will campaign for his party’s 2010 candidates from afar, holding fund raisers but not hitting the campaign trail in most of the contested races. Those mass rallies of Obama frenzy are surely of the past.
The country has had its fill with a scapegoating that knows no end from a president who had vowed to break with recriminations and partisanship. The magic of 2008 can’t be recreated, and good riddance to it.
blah blah blah, but it’s a decent read. Too bad it’s in the Wall Street Journal Op-Ed, where right-wing views are frequently found. When stories like this headline the New York Times, or take the lead on MSNBC, then I’ll believe that the great leftist masses have got the message. Until then, keep on fighting. Everything this rat bastard does is wrong, every single one of his policies is against the nation’s best interest on purpose, and every little flair-up in the press is most probably smoke and mirrors to distract you from paying attention to another dirty deal going down in the background.
NOvember can’t come soon enough.
And that “economic recovery”? Horse apples. Every day we get closer and closer to real long term depression. Business is going nowhere.
Even the smell of a dogs ass will attract other dogs so of course O-god will always have some support.
Президент Оба́ма doesn’t consider himself obsolete just yet. He’ll start to rule by Executive Order. You watch.
It will be interesting to see if and how the GOP (should the morons in charge actually not grab defeat from the jaws of victory) handle having the majority. I would be content with simply negating the worst of the spending and closing the border. Stop Obamacare and oh yes, approve a Federal Budget with across the board cuts - most especially to pork, paybacks, earmarks and various slush funds.
Dreams - Impeach, Investigate, and enforce the Constitution (as in the NBC clause of the Section on who is eligible to be POTUS) would simply be frosting on the cake.
Sadly, the GOP will probably just water down any massive spending bills that the Dems put forth and thus the 2008 & 2010 elections have actually boiled down to the decision and difference between hemlock and arsenic - still end up in death for We The People, just how fast and how painful being the only difference.
Thus there is no Hope and absolutely no Change - just Obama is doing the same old, same old on warp speed.
So what is there to idolize, what is so new about this ‘historic’ (NOT, he is never forget not black - he is halfrican, in other words, technically he should mark OTHER on his forms) about this - same words, same actions, same divisive politics, same lies, same uber spending, same old same old? Absolutely nothing -except that this guy makes Jimmy Carter look like a Rhodes Scholar, makes Bill Clinton look like Honest Abe, makes Lyndon Johnson look like a civil rights hero and makes Kennedy look like - well like a Republican.
None of it does a damn thing to fix what is wrong with America.
