Latest Obama ratings poll shows decrease in healthcare approval

July 20, 2009 by  

A recent poll conducted via telephone by the Washington Post and ABC news found that fewer Americans are lending their support to President Obama’s healthcare reform plans.

According to the figures, only 49 percent of respondents feel confident about the administration’s plans for healthcare whereas in June, 53 percent expressed their approval.

Similarly, Americans’ confidence in Obama’s handling of the economy has also slid slightly as 52 percent currently endorse his decisions compared to 58 percent last month.

Furthermore, one quarter of survey participants feel that the administration is placing too much of a priority on healthcare, while 39 percent expressed they believe there is too little of an emphasis on fixing the federal budget deficit.

As a result, 55 percent of respondents think that it is most important that the government work to avoid a greater deficit rather than increase overall consumer spending.

Of those surveyed, 33 percent identified themselves as Democrat, 22 percent were Republican, 41 percent were registered Independent and only 4 percent had no affiliation.

Despite slipping public support, the government aims to push healthcare reforms and the issue is of extreme importance.

Last week, Obama explained he was "urging the House and the Senate, Democrats and Republicans, to seize this opportunity, and vote for reform."

    Russian Newspaper writes: “America descending into Communism without a fight”

    The newspaper once read by Lenin is now more opposed to the programs of Lenin than are the newspapers of America
    I received the following article from a good American friend of Russian descent. He wrote, “This will rattle your brain…Actually, the entire article should be in bold type, capitalized and underlined, for that matter. Hard to believe that this article was in a former Russian State Newspaper. Share it with your friends; perhaps it will open some eyes! The irony of this article appearing in the English edition of Pravda (former Russian State Newspaper) defies description.”

    My comment is simply this: this article has more truth in it than all the daily newspapers of the United States combined. It also once more illustrates to me why the media and government has become so hostile to Russia. Today, America is being felled by same elite of Jewish extremists that cast Russia into slavery under Communism. The Russians have freed themselves for the most part, while we only sink deeper into the mire and muck. Isn’t it amazing when we Americans must get our truth from the famous former Red newspaper of the old Soviet nation but one that is now in the service of the Russian people, while the American media marches lockstep into obamaism and as the article says, a continuation of Goldman Sacks, Jewish extremist thievery that makes the Jewish Oligarchs of Russia look like small street thugs! — Read this article and THINK! – Dr. David Duke (Read more at:

    America descending into Communism without a fight!

    Pravda Newspaper, Moscow
    It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

    True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past 20 years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

    Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
    1st.) the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, michael-freako-jacko style subhumanoids, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives.
    They care more for their “right” to choke down an un-healthy, made from by-products McDonalds burger, or a BurgerKing trashburger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture other countries and leaders – such as a real democratic country: Iran – about rights and about how “democracy” must be look like. Pride blind the foolish.

    2nd.) Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo judeo-Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America .

    3rd.) The final collapse has come with the election of this totally un-American, Kenyan-citizen Barack NObama. His speed in the past 3 months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America ’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble Somalia or at worst Zimbabwe.

    These past 2 weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very judeo-thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

    These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.

    Then came Barack NObama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

    So it should be no surprise, that the “American” president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry – bruhahahahahahaha! – and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too.

    Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned NObama and UK ’s Blair, not to follow the path to judeo-Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this judeo-American sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” judeo-American fools find out the folly of their own pride.

    Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “freeman” whimper.

    So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democrat controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses?

    Senator Barney Franks, a social homo-pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a “virtue”) and his judeo-Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort.
    He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive. What a dumb fagot!

    The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red Communist police-state, as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left. The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how “free” he really is. The world will only snicker and laugh.

      I respect that you hate communism. Your KKK and anti-semite buddies that you quote are racist nutjobs that also hate communism. This I do not respect. You should be less concerned with the zionists and more concerned with the UN agenda and New World Order (sometimes one and the same) but do not confuse the two. We all must stand up, you are correct… but stand up to the UN, for open government, to our corrupt politicians selling our country out to a North American Union, enact strict term limits, end government lobbying by everything other than individuals (no banks giving money to senators), end the ferderal reserve (extremely important), end bailouts and communist style takeover, restore responsible spending and oversight of our companies and stockmarket, restore posse comitatus to protect us from a hostile police state, and restore privacy rights. We must protest! If martial law is imposed to quell us back into slavery, we must fight! This is a matter of life and death… literally! I understand your frustration, believe me. Direct it in a positive direction that can bring the changes you are looking to see.

      • FarRightWinger

        Mike, first of all, the article, I posted is a copy, a newsflash from the PRAVDA, and did NOT mirror my opinion. It was translated from Russian to English and published in that newspaper. I thought it worth to read it and let others to know about it. It has absolutely no connection to the KKK or to any Nazi parties.
        Yes, I hate communism, bc it is not an ideology but a TOOL to take over ‘goyim’ governments for devastating consequences. Its an opium for the exploited people.
        2nd, yes I hate it, bc I lived in communism during the ’70s and I know it very well from inside…
        3rd, I think you are influenced by the leftist “semitic” media lies about David Duke (regarding my “KKK and anti-semitic buddies”). On this issue: Dr.Duke was really a KKK-member when he was YOUNG man, many years ago. As a House Of Representative in the state of Louisiana, he was able to prove that he is NO longer the member of that organisation. And if he was, so what? Let me tell you: I was member of different organisations in my young ages (no, I was never KKK-affiliate) and later I realized, its better to stay alone.
        As being accused anti-semitic, I must tell you: you are wrong on this too. I am NOT anti-semitic, I have Palestinian friends. I am anti-ZIONIST, bc that is a racist movement, putting Jews above all for world-control, exactly the very same reasons you are against. I strongly suggest you to read Dr.Duke’s book “Jewish Supremacism” and you will understand more on this issue than from me in a few words.
        The UN gun-confiscation plan, NWO, all coming from the same zionist-controlled agenda and secret takeover. I hope u dont think there are 2-3-4 or more different “plans” working against us? There’s only ONE plan and this is the goal of NWO: ONE WORLD, ONE GOVERNMENT, ONE ORDER, ONE RELIGION, and one fate…
        I think it will be very hard to stay free for those Americans, who can’t (or don’t want) to see the zionist connection to our everyday problems… AMERICANS WERE TAUGHT TO LOVE THEIR JEWISH FRIENDS… but the jews are loving America as much? The June 1967 attack on USS Liberty and other attacks (as the 9-11) show that you should be more concerned about the American-israeli “relationship” than you are now.

    In la la land we can have health care for everyone. When people realize the cost is outrageous (and will destroy the economy), they can see this dung heap idea for what it is. Once again, we’re supposed to turn our brains off to please our wannabe masters
    while our economy implodes. B O is using an old trick from Lenin and Saul Alinsky to destroy America from within. With one voice, say “shove it.” Governments around the world know this sheep dip
    can’t work. Only evil, twisted minds would think or say this one-way trip to oblivion will work in the US, when it has never worked in any country. America needs solutions, not diabolical problems!

    • Mike

      You are correct! Great insight SC. Nationalized healthcare is a two pronged approach to bankrupt our economy and make a huge government powergrab in healthcare. This is a vital step towards a World Bank due to extreme inflation and also imposing the will of the World Health Organization on the American people who will not have any alternative other than to be seen by federal employees. Incidently, it also further encourages migrant illegals to cross our open borders for free medical coverage and push a North American Union agenda. The UN and the New World Order really want Barrack to pass this bill.

  • Dale Mattiosn

    The healthcare plan that this administration has proposed is the wrong plan for this country and the people that reside here. Why should hardworking individuals like myself who have a good healthcare program thru work,why should I want to give that up to a government that can’t get right, will never get it right. Please do want you want with the other people but leave me and my family alone with BS.

    The health care system that Obama is pushing for mega bucks could be solved
    very inexpensively. Problem is, it works and is too cheap. $50 per year max.
    It’s all over the Internet. It saved my friend in 2 days. The VA was treating him. He called to say goodbye. Figured he would be dead in 3 to 4 days. For 50 years he was a heavy smoker and for 20 years was on oxygen and has only 25% of his lung tissue left. He had contacted Pneumonia the VA was giving him Steroids and Antibiotics he was failing fast. I sent him a $20 bottle of MMS said he could buy the activator at the grocery store and when mixed with the MMS the end solution becomes 1000 times more powerful. They use it for curing those unfortunate to have contacted Anthrax. It requires some serious reading. It makes your immune system 1000 times stronger. It works on the Atom and Electron’s in your body. It does not attack healthy cells. You still need to take vitamins and minerals. You still need Doctors for car crashes, foot ball injuries etc. The 4 activators are Fresh Lemon and Lime juice, Vinegar, and Citric Acid Powder mixed in a 10% solution and put in a bottle with a dropper on top. The MMS has a very long shelf life. Can be stored for a few years. You can live an extra 10, 20 years.

    I hope this gets printed.

    Today’s news: NObama’s disapproval rate double-digit!

  • Ruth

    strong textGlenn, I would like ask a question about Judge Sotomayor. Although she has a latina name and background how can she claim to be a latina? Her parents came from Puerto Rico, a US territory, she herself was born in the Bronx, that is in NY State in the USA! She received as good a high school education as could be had at top notch Cardinal Spellman High School in the City. If four years at Princeton and three years at Yale Law didn’t convince her that she had been intergrated into the American culture,then she should not be appointed to the Supreme Court of this great land.
    I myself am a naturalized citizen,having come from Europe, and only revert to that part of my heritage in the presence of immediate family or friends from that part of the world.
    Just can’t understand people like Sotomayor!!!

    Keep up the great work on the radio and on TV.

    Best wishes Ruth,Alan Church

    I don’t understand how Obama can have such a high approval rating. He wants to take $500 billion dollars from Medicare, do away with Medicare Advantage programs, legalize 12 to 20 million illegal aliens who are holding jobs American citizens need, raise taxes that will stifle small business ability to create new jobs. Obamanomics is killing us and the news media thinks he can do no wrong. What has happened to America, did I go to sleep and wake up in some parallel universe? Wake up America, stop this guy in 2010 and 2012 before he and his socialist buddies completely destroy America.

    obummer would not have hado obummersare handed to him if he wouldn’t of had a democratic majority. seems until the house of reps got a republican majority he wa cruising right along doing whatever he wanted. some or all of his failed stimuluses would’nt have made it. people need to chek out the website the obama deception. it pretty well tells were he is coming from. he is just as connected to big money as the bushes and the clintons were. i have the dvd and most of what was in it was sickening.if everyone voted there would be a lot of big changes. bigger than big money.back when dole was running against pat buchanan the results kinda proved who big money wanted. buchanan was not backed by big money. i used to listen to talk radio shows in the early 90′s. buchanan was on some and he talked about what was going to happen iif this country did’nt change its ways and he was right. we are there . bankrupt. the man was more intellegent than any president we’ve hand in foreever. he would have been a very good president. had no big money backing. big money owns this country. time for a change. vote ron paul.
