Obama's Approval Ratings Fall Again

January 18, 2010 by  

Obama's approval ratings fall againAs his first year in the White House comes to a close, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to a new low, according to a CBS News poll.

The latest national opinion poll released on Monday found that 46 percent of people approve of the president’s performance, marking the first time Obama’s rating has slipped below 50 percent in the CBS survey. His current numbers are down from a high of nearly 70 percent in April of 2009.

According to the poll, healthcare and the economy are the two most prominent factors contributing to the president’s low score. The survey, conducted early in January, found that only 36 percent of Americans support Obama’s handling of healthcare reform while just 41 percent approve of his managing of the economy.

Meanwhile, fear of another terrorist attack has increased, although the majority of Americans commend the current administration’s response to the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound airplane.

Last month, Obama said he expected the fall in ratings and that he was "surprised they held up as well as they did" considering the state of the economy.

    History repeats itself. For those cheering Neocons who forgot:

    Reagan came into office on a fairly high note, with initial job approval ratings as high as 60% by mid-March 1981. Then, on March 30, Reagan was shot on the streets of Washington by John Hinckley Jr., and the resulting concern and sympathy helped lift his ratings to 68% by May. But even as Reagan personally recovered from his wounds, the public’s concerns about the bad economy did not, and the president’s ratings began to fall as each month went by.

    By the end of 1981, Reagan’s job approval rating had drifted down to 49%.

    Things got worse for Reagan in 1982. The public’s view of the economy remained sour, and the president’s ratings during 1982 stayed concomitantly low, in the 40% range, ending the year at 41%. The 1982 midterm elections were not good ones for Reagan and for the GOP. The Republicans lost about 25 seats in the House.

    A clear cause for all of this was the economy.

    • http://victorbarney@embarqmail.com Victor L Barney

      Yes, Because of the previous “Marxist” Carter the economy was in the dumps for a full year or more after Reagan got into office, but once he started to correct the attempted Marxism takeover, the economy rebounded within a couple of years to last twenty years! Now, Marxism has failed again and has brought us in an actual Depression (Note: Marxism was started by the 3rd degree “Mason brothers” the Bush father and son team)and insult on injury then added by the self-proclaimed Marxist, Obama)! The “fix” in the current economy will begin to turn around in February, 2012; so I’m not sure how this will occur under Marxism? Reagan only bought us time, but I believe that Obama was prophetic when he said I will fundamentally change our system of government! Next, the beginning of the biblical “Jacob’s trouble!”

      • Jay

        For all those out there who don’t know what “Jacob’s Trouble” is, it’s more commonly known to born-again Christians as the “Tribulation,” and details can be found in the book of Revelation from the Bible. Everyone, please open your eyes to the prophetic signs around us today. 2 Thessolonians, chapter 2 is happening right before out eyes and began before Obama was elected. It states that God will send a delusion upon those who are to perish so that they’ll believe what is false, which in turn means that they’ll not believe what is true. Obama was elected because people believed lies and not the truth, the greatest of these being the myth that man is causing global warming. People who believe this myth are totally under the delusion and are sadly on their way to perishing.

        Another huge prophetic sign happening right before our eyes, is hyperinflation, where your money will suddenly become worthless. Hang on to your guns because you gonna need them for this. I hope all who read this consider what this really means, because when it happens, and it’s not a question of “if it happens” but when it will happen, Obama will declare martial law to control the chaos that’ll occur and postpone all elections indefinitely. By the way, Obama’s already begun getting ready for this by issuing an order to one of his generals to amass an army of one million soldiers here in the U.S., and that information was picked up from Russian sources, not the right-wing blogs. God help us in the next two years.

        • sheilah

          Just interested to know where you got your info. If it is true then it needs to be said, but if not then you are going to cause a lot of problems for people. Can you show proof as to what you have said about Obama calling in on martial law? Please show your proof as the American people need to be prepared.

            Yes, we definitely need to be prepared asap.

          • ROD OH

            You don’t have to worry about any “proof” since this is just another backlash mentality lie. But true to form, those that believe in and distort reality with conspiracy theories (like this one) – never have to offer proof. Only because they are preaching to those that think just like them. Conspiracy thinking is nothing but “poison” to “unfertile” minds. They are unfortuately spread and believed by unintelligent minds.

          • Jay

          This is my email for those who would like me to send them the documentation about Obama’s orders to one of his generals to quietly amass an army of one million men: jaybob.1@netzero.net

          • Joe H.

            Jay,
            While I distrust O-man as much as any and am as disgusted by his crapper politics as any, I doubt he could Amass an army of one million and still keep the levels any where near what they are now in foreign countries. If it is true, God bless ya’ for letting us know, but if it isn’t then as Wright would say about our wonderful, beautiful country, then G-D you for spreading a lie thats going to make conservatives look bad!!! We already have an up-hill battle without lies making us look like kooks!!!

      • Jack

        I don’t understand why so many people who call themselves Conservatives, Libertarians and/or Republicans are so misinformed. Folks, for your sake, the sake of your families and our great nation you have to stop getting all of your information from Fox News, the Glenn Becks and Rush Limbaughs of the world. They feed you a lot of BS that you just swallow. If you would take just a few minutes to fact check what they are telling you, you would find that they frequently mislead.

        I have been a Goldwater conservative Republican since before I could register to vote in 1968. So called conservatives like Beck and Limbaugh are nothing but corporate shills who will say and do anything to help the rich and powerful who pay or might pay them the millions they take, regardless as to what it does to the vast majority of the people in this country.

        Reagan was no hero; he didn’t work miracles with the economy. He cut taxes for the richest people but actually raised them on the average folks. Have you folks forgotten the recession in 1986-87 or the one in 1991-1992. He started this country down the road to the huge deficits that we now have along with his policies of free trade and deregulation even Clinton continued them) that has led to the mess we are now in.

        You can’t be a socialist and a communist at the same time. We don’t have socialism in this country. What we have is corporatism where the large corporations and the very rich exercise control over the government.

        Obama’s approval numbers have tanked because he has abandoned his base
        and they feel betrayed. He campaigned as a reformer but is governing as a corporatist. That’s why in fairly recent polling, over 40% of the people who identified themselves as Democrats said they either didn’t plan on or definitely weren’t going to vote in the midterm elections this year.

        • ROD OH

          Jack, Let me try to help answer your question. Read Thomas Franks book “The Wrecking Crew”. It lays out how top conservatives like Grover Norquist, Jack Abramoff, Tom Delay (and even Newt Gringrich to some extent) have concocted and executed a plan to cause the less educated, disaffected and disenchanted of the United States to hate and fear the one entity that always protected the middle class – our government -at least into the middle seventies. Ever since then they have defunded much of the good government that existed with poor leadership when they have been in power. They have done that in many ways to make the government look bad while they and their corporate “buddies” got filthy rich. And guess what happened to the middle class. They “bought into” all the lies, misnformation, negativity and conspiracy theories and hating and mistrusting the government and it just became a self-fulfilling prophecy” after a while. It did not matter how stagnant their wages got or how their employers kept taking away their benefits or kept taking their jobs to other countries because by this time it was all the “governments, socialists and liberals” fault. They simply created a “bogeyman” that never existed. All they did was tap into their hate, prejudices and lower economic status with lies, distortions, misinformation – and best of all “conspiracy theories”. And guess what happened? The people stupidly kept voting for the very same conservative politicians who pander to these rich,elite conservatives and their powerful corporation lobbies. Pretty smart of them, wouldn’t you say? Except look what it has done to our country attitude wise. And these same conservative scoundrels are now getting away with no financial reform because they have the “disaffected unintelligent masses” distracted once again, loathing in their own negativity, pessimism and downright hate. This is the main reason that I will never vote Republican/Conservative ever again. These people have no clue of the real problems facing and how we need positive, progressive solutions for them. But please read Thomas Frank’s book. It is excellent in explaining this “backlash phenomenon”.

          Jack,

          It seems your last paragraph may have said it all….the FLL’s are a “my way or the highway” kind….so they threaten to “not vote”.

          And….as far as your thought about Fox News, Beck and Limbaugh; I use to listen to ABC, CBS, NBC, etc…..but they rarely offer dissenting viewpoints…..at least Fox offers a more balanced take on the issues….allowing the viewers to make up their own mind…instead of receiving a “MSM” implant.

          Fed Up Gal

          • usmadgirl

            AMEN! Fox is the ONLY real honest news! With the conservatives having ONLY Fox, I wish they WEREN’T so “fair & balanced” so they could balance out ALL the other “MSM” being completely BIASED to the liberal progressive (& admitted Socialists)distortions or elimination of the truth.

        • DaveH

          Jack,
          Do you even know what Libertarians stand for? When you lump us in with right-wingers, I am lead to believe you don’t.
          Crony Capitalism knows no party lines. Both Democrats and Republicans are guilty of corporate favoritism.
          Libertarians believe in markets free of government meddling except to protect the public from fraudulant activities.

        • George

          Jack,

          The eternal struggle in democratic politics now, and probably always will be, between the citizens votes and the political lobby’s money for influence over our political representatives’ attention, time, and resources. In the end, our votes trump the lobbist’s money when we bring the two into conflict. The politicans, of course, will try to find a way of getting both when they can. A couple of the ways they’ve accomplished this in the past are by 1) accepting campaign contributions which are used to market their campaigns to win our votes, and 2) provide “give-away” programs to citizens to win votes.

          I’m pretty sure it doesn’t matter who we send to Washington, regardless of party affiliation, political philosophies, or best intentions when they go, eventually they’ll all become corrupted by the process if they stay long enough. We just can’t put people in that kind of situation and expect any different result. It would, of course, help if we sent honest people who share our values and believe in limited government in the first place. I think that’s where “the train jumped track” this time. We’ve sent a lot of folks who really want to change our system into something we never thought possible in the past, and are having trouble facing today.

          I think it’s very important that we continue our oversight effort like the Tea Party is currently providing to keep our conservative and libertarian politicians on the track we want them to be on. Without this, our politicians will eventually become overcome by the power of the money, influence, and corruption.

        • Robert M

          You’re a real optimist. Your “repression happened while one of your evident heroes, on Comrade Bill Klinton’s watch.

          Communist Russia tried SOCIALISM for decades and then finally realized it wasn’t working. That kills your “we can’t have communism and socialism at the same time” bullshit.

          Get your head out, and start looking at the path ol Purple Lips, with the jug ears, is taking us. MARXISM IS SOCIALISM, fella, and that’s what ol PL is claiming to be… a Marxist.

          And he’s not the only one. Little Jimmy, Miss Lillian’s little boy, is a socialist and Comrade Hillbillery and Slick Willie are Marxists.

          When you finally pull your head out, look around, AFTER you wake up!

          No need to reply, you’re an idiot, along with the other fools who put this illegal bastard (born out of wedlock) in there. His father was an adulterer and there never were any divorce papers. I suppose they reside in the same coffers with the non-existent AMERICAN birth certificate.

        Wgere Mr. Barney got the idea the 3rd Degree Masons had anyrthing to do with the Bush era is a real mystery.

        I saw no mention of the Masonic Order as a factor.

        Methinks Mr. Barney needs to read up on thre Masons.

        • Claire

          I agree. My husband is a Mason, and I trust my husband, not some other propaganda.

      • Asad Sulaimaan

        Apparently this Victor Barney doesn’t know the difference between “Marxism” and “Fascism”. The way the Bushes were “throwing away” borrowed money on what virtually everyone agrees was a stupid unjustified war makes it a clearly “capitalist” venture. The idea being that a few “military-industrialist”. thought they could capitalize on this conflict (at the cost of millions of casualties)and lining their pockets. Let’s hope Obama stops falling for this nonsense before its too late!

    • Alan

      The clear problem was and is the economy. In both cases, now and then, the economy is dragged down by the cost of an omnipresent and costly government presence. The clear choice before us is the continuation of 48 years of failed socialism or the overthrow of this failed statist model. People (those who work and pay taxes) can no longer be expected to support this model of governance which is obviously obsolete. The Soviets demonstrated this much at great expesne to themselves and the world as well.

    • Tinwarble

      Norm,

      You forget the most important part though, Reagan did the exact opposite of what Obama is doing now. Reagan built up our military, enacted deregulation and shrank government which began economic growth by his 2nd term. Where as Obama is, at the least, stifling the military, enacting over regulation and growing government beyond what anyone has ever done, and the only part of the economy that is growing is in the government sector. Also, under Obama, unemployment is higher than under Reagan during the same time in their Presidency and Obama has spent more money than any other President to date.

  • Norm

    WASHINGTON — As former President George W. Bush’s helicopter whisked him from the Capitol over the 2 million people on the National Mall to Andrews Air Force Base, parts of the crowd burst into a riff of “Nah nah nah nah, hey hey hey, goodbye,” a song usually reserved for losing sports teams.

    Bush left the presidency with the lowest approval rating of any president except Richard Nixon, according to a new New York Times/CBS poll, which put Bush’s final rating at 22 percent.

          Viktor,

          I’m with you, but I doubt George Bush would accept the office unless there was no other choice. He’s had his time in DC, and I think he’s done with it. He’s not really a career politician, and doesn’t enjoy the bantering and games-playing that goes on between the political parties. I am pretty sure he’s done trying to work with most liberals, who did everything they could for 8 years to mislead, distort, and falsify his record for short term political gain. Who needs it? Let someone else have their term in the barrel…..

  • John

    The Crisis is jobs which cannot be easily fixed. So Pres. Obama created another crisis healthcare which when and if it’s pass will show it’s results good or bad in about 10 years. The biggest benefictor of health care will be the unions which will organize the government run sector. The unions which are a large part of the problem in this country’s industry leaving are now being givin so much power that in 10 years more industry will be gone. But no problem for the unions as the government employees now account for more members than the private sector. So the unions demand more pay from the government, unions pay more money to the candidates and once elected most support the government unionized workers. We need real answers to the issues we face not someone reading off a telepromter with messages that sound great but have no relevence in America.

    Approval of what response? That it took him a number of days and a couple revisions to the nature of his “response”? Stop cutting this moron breaks. It WAS NOT handled at all. Is anyone paying attention? There should be outrage over the fact that this man even got on board. Outrage that he’s even being given the courtesy of due process. How is he able to plead not guilty? Was he not caught red handed in an act of terror? Pathetic. Remember Mr. Obama felt it necessary to not use the words terrorists or terror. That tells you where he stands in my humble opinion. What may have happened if that man succeeded in blowing up the plane? Would America still feel like it was handled properly then? How about Janet, she still got her job? If it were any of us that ” fell through the cracks” in our jobs I highly doubt we would still be employed. That may have said something about an appropriate response. This administration is an embarrassment and a disgrace to the American people. Obama should be giddy with joy to have a 46% approval rating, I can’t believe it’s that high. I don’t know about you all but I’m a bit beyond tired of just sitting and waiting to find out the next way these traitors in Washington are going to dictate the quality of our lives…I’m sorry, the plummetting of the quality. I could have sworn this was supposed to be a Republic? Power breeds corruption….sooner or later. It is time to reset.

      Luckily miss Shortcake you represent only one small radical, disloyal, segment of the voters.

      • FreeAmericaNow…Please

        Norm – Actually, you are the minority here – if his rating is 46% (and I agree with Strawberry Shortcake that is wayyyyyy too high) – Obama should be thankful, and that proves that if you are within those that bow to him, you are the traitor. He should be impeached, and quickly before he and his followers can do any more damage. Those who want to keep a free America need to keep speaking up and show that real patriotism and belief in a free Republic can still be.

        Uh Norm….did you make it through basic math? 46% is the percentage that the poll said approves of your president, that means it’s lowwwerr, and that makes you sir, the minority.

  • Paul

    Yes, Reagan received a bad rap (as though he were the cause) from lingering economic policies of Carter. Interesting how Clinton gets credited with the hard work Reagan did to get things back on target. Things take time. Now Democrats try to pin a bad economy on Bush alone, not willing to admit to admit the main cause was a democratic congress who refused to address mandated excesses in housing loans. It was not Bush who destroyed our economy; it is the result of neglect and bad policy of a Democratic congress. A freed economy is the only hope of recovery and improved ratings. Let’s watch history repeat itself again!

    • Norm

      Of course it wasn’t Bush. When he had a majority congress it was still those Democrats.

      • JLR

        It is as if we get what we deserve because we asked for it.
        The Bush economic policies worked well until 2007 when the housing debacle started by the Democrats in the Clinton years came to fruition, these risky loans to people who could not afford them were bloated in value, prices were inflated, risks were all bore by the banks which is convenient for the extortionists because later they blamed Bush and the banks, and even loans were extorted from banks by the likes of Frank under the threat of regulation(another word for legalized criminal control of otherwise functional free market principal) which is now so obvious even you can see this. Simple math applies whether we want it to or not, the Keynesian school is absurdly contrary to logic. You owe 10 and then you borrow 10 more to pay the first ten, you then owe 20. The keynesian model says you can print it if you are a government and you now pay the ten (You can spend ten elsewhere with this model as well since you own the printer) and owe nothing to anyone, all the while promoting progressive policies and controlling the foolish who believe you do it for their good. Salt it with redistribution from the wealthy to the poor and tell the poor you work for their good and now you have throngs of cradle to gravers who vote for you endlessly.
        This is not the American way and this is not why we broke the monarchy’s hold over our economy. The disgusting part is the people continually vote for the very perpetrators of these broken and failed policies even when they say they believe in these policies of failure.

        • JLR

          Abolish the IRS, end the Fed and downsize government before it is too late. As we speak, blame is a losing game, we still control this nation. If we keep arguing the far left will inevitable take advantage of our division and rule us with more restriction than the Crown in 1774. The Fed controls our money and our Congress thereby! Even Obama took the money this can be proven through a simple online search(Unless they removed all articles to this effect like Snopes did his certificate of live birth). If he had not then he would have come out against the Fed already, this would be a respectable Democrat I would have voted for, but he only went after the AIG execs. whom worked within the system legally(Contract is the basis of all law). Incidentally Obama and his admin let them take these bonuses in the first place.

  • JR

    Hasn’t any one learned from the past? The young kids today who no nothing of the long gas lines and how we fought to keep government out of our lives today, have been so pampered by the hippies that cradle to grave is all they seek……. I worked hard all my life to live the life style of today, with jobs out there how do I continue to take care of myself… To sit back and feel my ass grow and let my kids and the kids of others pay for my health and well being is total disgrace to the American people.

    Folks do for your self and your children, stop being lazy and selfish. Government is not the answer it is the problem… live free and as you wish. Americans can do the jobs and care for our people of this great nation……………. JR

    • LauraMaeRN

      Exactly, young people today are lazy and want everything handed to them on a silver plater and if they think uncle sam will take care of them they will vote for MORE Uncle sam, until Uncle Sam is completely in control of our lives and we live in a communist country. IT starts with the small stuff and grows and grows. We need to be in charge of our government and keep it as small as possible.

      • Alan Clark

        Here’s one for ya…we all move to the barter system where you trade goods at a co-op owned by you and your neighbors. Even things like medical supplies and such can be purchased. In fact, if a group of people would seriously think about it they coud get by pretty dam good this way and the beauty of the whole thig is that it cuts off what the government wants most….TAX DOLLARS….HHMMMM

    • John

      JR,

      You are correct. I’m 56 years old and have worked since I was 13 and earned my own health insurance when I was 18. I also have 2 college degrees that I have earned and I am still working HARD to earn a living in this economy.

      I loath lazy people that expect the Government too take care of them.

          • Norm

            If you get away from hate radio long enough you might see how screwed up your beliefs are. Have you heard Rush’s views on Haiti by the way?

          • RoBoTech

            Why yes Norm, I have. Of course YOUR verions is tripe, but the WHOLE version is, Rush doesn’t trust Obama’s corrupt appointments to get the relief to the Haitian people. HE says donate directly to the relief agencies. Now, what was YOUR version of Rush’s statement? LOL, Fantasy World and Projection. Categories of Dementia, and you have that disease alright. Don’t worry, although that dementia WILL get worse as you get older, the Schizophrenia part will allow you to really get into Fantasy. It’s your only saving grace as it’s obvious Reality really suxors for you, LOL.

          • JLR

            This is journalistic dishonesty at it’s finest, Norm. Rush Limbaugh said what he said and they not only took it out of context, they flat out lied about what he said. Now, Clinton comments(to the late Kennedy I believe) on how Obama would have been serving his drinks back in the day, which does not need any context at all, and they never make a peep. The MSM is shameless and will pay for their sins against the American people very soon.
            Is that the media you go to Norm? If these are the facts you go on then don’t come back to the table. Alas, Alan Colmes will educate you on the epitome of liberal debate or badgering. Not that he is not a left wing wind bag with a hate for truth or righteousness, but still at least he debates well. I can’t stand this from a radio talk show host: yell down your opponent with these words “Stop Yelling down your opponent you _____ (fill in the blank with any political affiliation!” These are the tactics of a fool. Colmes uses this hypocritical tact oft and well.

          • Norm

            Controversial conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh is defending earlier comments in which he accused President Obama of using the disaster in Haiti for political gain.

            “I do believe that everything is political to this president,” Limbaugh said on his radio show yesterday. “Everything this president sees is a political opportunity, including Haiti, and he will use it to burnish his credentials with minorities in this country and around the world, and to accuse Republicans of having no compassion.”

            President Obama has dedicated $100 million for immediate relief efforts in Haiti, calling it a “top priority.”

            The president has not politicized the matter or criticized Republicans’ response to the disaster. Republicans, in fact, have largely expressed their support for the president’s efforts.

This norboy is useless.

I have other blogs to spank Libbies on, and A.B. Norm-al offers no challenge, just tired old 2008 Liberal talking points. Been there done that, time for some NEW arguments.

We have to keep our government small and under OUR power lest it take us out.

    As we experience the repeat of the Carter presidency, let us also recall the remedy to that blotch in our political history. Further, we need to recover from not just the 0bama presidency but from the 48 years of demcrat led socialism which has defined this presidency. The long decades of statism have clearly shown the model does not work and the more of peoples’ income they can keep and accumulate the better off society is in general.

  • Alan

    Obama’s downfall has not just been contributed to by his failure as a leader but accelerated by his preference to behave more as an entertainer or popular personality. He seems to be ignorant of his responsibilty which he accepted when he took the presidential oath.

  • Matty

    Poor Norm, angry man that you are. Truth sometimes hurts, and if you’re a follower of this empty suit of a president, I can understand where your anger is coming from. What you need to do now is try to get a grip on reality. Your man will never see 60 percent again, not even 50. The economy will be in the tank until our next president is in office, which is three more years. Many of the sheeple have seen the light, come on over Norm. Help us make America great again, be proud to be living in the greatest country ever known to man.

    • Norm

      I agree Bush really did a number on the economy.

      • JLR

        I did not like Bush and his lies, nor his Patriot Act either. That Obama has continued Bush’s tyranny and even accelerated it is obvious unless you just landed here yesterday morning. Afghanistan will be perpetual, Gitmo will never close, Iraq was invaded and the Neo-Libs were part and parcel in these Wars. The Neo-Libs played the, we were against this war, political expedient game all the while amassing power over their constituency. They were for these wars from the beginning and lied only whence they thought it would save them face. If you believe any of these career politicians want not control but what is good for the people then you must believe in fairy tales, as well.

        • DaveH

          Well, he doesn’t believe in “The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs”.

      • JLR

        Obama has installed Patriot Act II all by himself, under no force by any Repukelican. The Bush tax cuts were intended toward the working class, maybe just a feel good thing from his admin, and they worked. I received my taxes back plus some, what did you not get yours?
        To say our economy was not happy with Bush’s policies(Pre 2008) is to blindly ignore facts and no one will believe you, our economy was booming. Do not misinterpret this for support, he bankrupted our liberties, but maybe that is all a Neo-con understands. The failed policies of housing market forced loans was the first bubble, thanks to Frank, Clinton and gang.

        • JLR

          Funny how, even though he hardly ever voted more than present, before the messiah’s election he gained large profits from the quasi governmental agencies who were ultimately responsible for the recent depression.

        up!!!!! I did.

        • JeffH

          A DEMOCRAT NO MORE…remember, the liberal left and the Obama dem have a long memory with built in excuses…Reagan and illegals, Bush, Cheney, etc. Like a child that is jealous, there is no rationality put into their thoughts. That is how they will justify legalizing illegals along with a deep underlying need of the democrats to buy the votes of 12+ millions.
          BIG GOVERMENT is breaking this country, Democrats and Republicans alike. If one doesn’t restrict themself to tow “the party line” and think independently about what is best for America as a whole rather than just relying on government to make all of the decisions for you, one might step back and have a differant view. So many Americans have realized the “CHANGES” they voted for are not the changes they are getting. Health Care Reform is the biggest and best example. This administration wants to destroy the middle class because the poor have to rely on the government and the rich don’t need it. To continue to give, give, give and expecting the taxpayers to keep paying more, more, more does not solve the problems. Sometimes it is just better to shut the door, tighten the belts and work openly, together, to solve the problems we are faceing now. So much for promises of transparency and openess and working together. You tell the lie too many times, sooner than later nobody will believe.

            Thanks guys and gals. Change is in the air as we speak. Hugo Chavez, Obama’s friend, has denounced the US as militarily taking over in Haiti. A tragedy no doubt, but where was all the MSM hoopla during the devastating earthquakes in the other countries…all of a sudden Haiti is this nations priority to Michelle O and her husbands MSM. Once again the American people step up to the plate and donate, voluntarily, with the exception of $100 mil of our tax money.

        • Fed Up Gal in NM

          David,

          Right On! I used to be a Union Steward as well as Union President. I believe Unions were created for good cause, but like a lot of other things (mainly politicians)….good causes and good people can and will unfortunately more times than not…sell out to get something that only benefits them or their group. I’ve found that Unions are sometimes as (if not more) corrupt than the agencies or companies they are battling. This equates to simple greed!

          I wonder also why Toyota can seem to put out a great line of automobiles without a Union? Unions have to realize that when the American people finally get fed up with supporting their sometimes unrealistic issues….it will affect their bottom line (as is being seen right now).

          Fed Up Gal

          • DaveH

            Gal,
            I wish I could share your sentiment, but I don’t believe Unions ever served a good cause. Forcing one’s way on other people is never a good cause. In a free market, if a person doesn’t think working conditions are right, he or she can start their own competing business.
            I do believe that people should be free to organize, but impeding the hiring of replacement workers or harassing customers is not included in that freedom.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Dave H,

            You know Dave…you and I usually end up agreeing on more than we disagree on. I agree with your comment here (for the most part). Where we disagree is whether they may have served a useful purpose at one time. From my perspective… I do think when unions were created, they were intended for good…back then a lot of folks were in a catch 22 position…and could not leave a job and start a business. Remember back then…Uncle didn’t pay to retrain you or to send you to finish school….like it does now (at an alarming rate I might add). Again, you right about Unions now….they’re corrupt for the most part! I think we’re at least on the same page, even if not on the same paragraph :-).

Although his comment on Haiti was wrong and he should apologize, he has done more the Haitians than Obama will ever do.

At least Robertson has been helping them personally instead worrying about his power over the American idiot.

    It is just amazing how the economic downturn has really illuminated the fiscal irresponsibilties of the fed/state/local governments and especially in the BLUE states. Too much patronage and too many handouts. The problem is the dems and many repubs just want to continue to foster the Nanny state. How can anyone on the private side support any of their agenda?? The Libs are always touting Moral obligations for this or that. Well the moral obligation street is a two way road. If we continue to throw money at all these problems i.e. perpetual public education problems, healthcare, poor, illegals, don’t the recipients also have an obligation towards the people that give? Liberal government has created this for the explicit reason of maintaining control over the population. O’s job performance indicates he is overwhelmed by the position. It was probably pretty cool in the days he was smoking weed with his radical buddies and they thought they developed a clear vision of how the world is suppose to be. Problem is, it wasn’t reality!

          • DaveH

            The only aspect of a War that would be good for the economy is if it spurred the citizens to be more productive. Otherwise, the other aspects of War are bad for an economy. Think of all the machinery and munitions that are just blown up in a war. And all the soldiers that could be producing goods and services are sidetracked with the war effort.

          • Claire

            Hi DaveH—Good explanation. I had always wondered about this particular comment and could not see the rationality of it.

          • James

            John, Claire is right, President Franklin D. Roosevelt tried every trick in the book to get Germany to attack one of our ships in the Atlantic, but German subs were under orders not to fire on American ships unless they were under attack. Then FDR spent over a year in imposing sanctions on Japan, which eventually worked in provoking the attack on Pearl Harbor. Several books have now documented that. FDR was a Socialist, while Germany was anti-Communist, that’s why FDR wanted to ally the U.S. with the Soviet Union and crush Germany.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Claire,

            Your point is well taken, and your Mom and Grandma could have been on to something.

            Respectfully….I wish people would give 2-4 years of their own lives in the military to understand that the men and women in uniform get caught up in another battle (battle of public opinion). Washington calls the shots and the military men and women do their job. It’s likely in every war or conflict that there are many who don’t personally want to support that particular one…but what kind of security would we have if the military members could just pick and choose which war to attend and which ones not? Sorry if my comment offended you; I was just trying to make a point.

            Fed Up Gal in NM—You did not offend me. My son was in the Air Guard and he almost went to Desert Storm. But only a handful were taken from his unit, the 183rd. He worked on the radar in F16s. It seems like they took the guys that had more seniority at the time. I can remember I was at work and the guys in the Print Shop came in and said it was on the radio that the 183rd was called up. I can remember how I felt, I sat there at my desk and God help me, the tears rolled down my face. I called my son and he said he hadn’t heard anything but that he was ready to go. My son asked me if I would take care of his dogs. I was shaking but I could not help myself. As I said, it turned out that he did not have to go. But I thought about the men that did go and their families. The realization of war smacked me right in the face. I will always support our troops and their families. I sincerely appreciate what they do and have always done for America. God bless all of our military soldiers and their families. They are in my heart.

      Warrior, well said. The democrats are so blind with their power in politics right now, they don’t even realize that they do work for the American people, not the other way around. The bus has left and the panic has yet to set in. To me, that is just plain arrogance and direspect for the American people.
      With the mid-term elections, I wonder when they will realize that Obama’s support is hurting them rather than helping their elections.

  • LauraMaeRN

    Very good. You are exactly right. The O administration wants to “take care of the people” which is NOT what we need. Government is supposed to work FOR us, WE tell THEM what we want from them and their job is to make it happen. Lazy people want everything for free and will vote for politicians who will “take care of them.” People in “welfare type situations” are all for Big GOvernment, those of us who work like DOGS for a living are sick of taking care of everyone else. Social programs for the needy in America is VASTLY different from Socialism and Socialism is the path we are on. Socialism = Poverty. Equal POVERTY for ALL !!

    • JLR

      So absolutely 100% correct, Laura. Socialism is poverty equally for all, except the elite. The Socialist Health Care bill is shitty health care equally for all.
      Socialism (Communism) has failed miserably in the 20th century and is responsible for the deaths of at least 100 million people. Now, if the patriot in us will please rise up, the elite global banker NWO’ers won’t stand a chance.
      The thing that baffles my mind about Norm is what/whom is he protecting, serving and fooling? The liberals? The Clintons? The Bushes? The Obamas? These are the same as the Socialists in every respect, a failed political ideology that will never succeed in the U.S.A. These agendas can not succeed!
      We need to stop saying to ourselves things like “when I was a kid,” or “what has happened to America?” We need to be more optimistic and positive. The Gun owners of this country, the good ole’ boys, the military guys who give blood, sweat and life will not sit idly by and watch tyranny overrun our great Nation. We will not let Norm win! At all costs, be it death, we will not succumb to Liberalism, ever!! Norm you are the minority, just because every channel on your T.V. asserts a social agenda of liberal mentality does not mean that Americans are predominately Socialists.

    In my opinion obama should be impeached since he won’t show his birth certificate , and his grandmother said he was born in Kenya and she was there for his birth. And he’s the biggest lirer and bs’er we have ever had in goverment and that’s really sad considering the rest of the people in goverment.

    • WinstonWolf

      I do agree with the birth cert. All the others have had to. But I’m not a birther.— He should show and med recorda as well
      ( USN-RET )

      • James

        WinstonWolf, showing a would-be president’s birth certificate isn’t just a nice thing to do, it’s a constitutional requirement (Art. II, Sect. I, Cl. 4). If an aspirant to the Oval Office isn’t “a natural born citizen” he cannot be the president. The certificate that he did show contained no certificate number (it had been blacked out); it had no dated signatures of any state authority; and it was not typed as other certificates in 1961 in Hawaii, it was a laser print out, which capability was not available back then. A legitimate Hawaiian birth certificate back then had 14 horizontal lines and 22 virticle lines dividing the horizontal lines into boxes; which boxes were filled in by a typewriter, and hand-written dates and signatures.

    I am so tired of blame! This is ONE country. We need two parties that can work together and fix this mess. The arrogance on the left has made the divide even greater than Obama was elected, and quite frankly Obama is causing most of the divide with his cocky attitude. He is a divider not a uniter. His agenda is to make himself look good because he is the first black president,not our country and that is sad.

  • BonnieMW

    I think we can blame both the Republicans and the Democrates for the mess our nation is financially in. Both sides are equally crooked.
    It was the responsibility of both the Congress and the President to
    foresee the crash of our financial system but too many were paid to
    close their eyes. I completely agree that Obama is making a bad
    situation into a nighmare and should be empeached. He openly does
    what the American people don’t want but of course Bush also did.
    We need to get rid of almost everyone in office and let them know
    they are here to represent us. Oregon is voting on a new tax increase
    supposable for Teachers and Police. They didn’t give them any money when they had excess so how is that going to change with them taxing all the businesses out of business? I am proud of our community for
    giving a standing ovation of boos at our College football Civil War Game to our Governor. We need to let them know we don’t approve.
    Write letter every day to the President and your congressmen.

    • David

      There is a difference in not knowing what to do to fix the economic problem (Bush) and knowingly taking advantage of the situation to implement permanent changes which will break the back of our economy (obama). The libs are directly attacking the private sector….because they HATE for the haves to have anything. Sorry to tell you though, there aren’t enough of you out there to make it happen.

      We need to blame ourselves first, afterall, we voted these people into office. When life was good, we allowed the status quo, without much deep thought. My how life has changed.

      And as long as they don’t take our guns away from us before the November elections. Did you notice the Blank Panther thugs in Philadelphia last election and Holder drops charges. Did you see the attack by SEIU thugs against that American selling patriotic flags and Holder drops chargers. Did you see those pieces of S _ _ T conspire to carry out the 911 attacks and Holder gives them American rights to a civilian trial. Is it Holder or really Obama? They get legislation passed to take away our rights to own guns and when we go to vote this Novemeber, guess who will be there to deny us our rights? Obama’s gang of thungs, that’s who. Lock and load people, unless your a woose.

      • John

        Robert,

        That is what I’ve been saying all along. obama has no problem taking a stand against the American Citizenry, especially the ones that do not agree with him. That’s why we need too band together to defend our rights and our liberties.

        I doubt they will be stupid enough to try to take our guns away,we the people are preparing for that and it will get ugly if they try!

      • JeffH

        Obama will never have the support of our military, local and state police to “take” our guns away. The anti’s will always be trying to strip us of our inherant right, but we will all fight back just as hard or harder to preserve our right.
        Lock and load!

  • Jack

    Jay:

    Since an army has to be raised, trained, equiped and paid for, exactly how is Obama going to secretely raise an army of 1,000,000?
    How is he going to pay for it?

    Since you mention the Tribulation, if you believe in the Rapture would you be so kind as to post the books, chapters and verses in the Bible that say there will be a Rapture other than when Christ appears to the entire world and then cleanses it with fire to commence the millennuim. I am not trying to start a religious discussion. I ask this because I haven’t found it and I wonder why I keep missing it. Everytime I have asked someone for the same information they usually can’t tell me anywhere to look and if they do give me something when I read it it is not talking about a Rapture before the Tribulation.

    • Robert

      Where’s Obama going to raise a 1,000,000 man army? Easy. He’ll ask Louie Farakan’s assistance. I’m sure he’ll be able to help. Didn’t he organize the million man march?

    UNTIL WE AS A NATION EARNESTLY DEBATE THE PROS AND CONS OF FIAT, AND HOW IT ENABLES EXCESSIVE GOVERNMENT SPENDING, NOTHING WILL CHANGE. AS DEBT IS NOW MEASURED IN SOLAR SYSTEM DISTANCES, SO SHALL OUR TROUBLE BE MEASURED.

    ENDLESS AMOUNTS OF ‘MONEY’, CREATED THROUGH FIAT, FACILITATES MULTIPLICATION OF ‘THE WORLD’.

    ALTHOUGH IT DOESN’T CUT THROUGH ALL INSTANCES, GENERALLY…MORE MONEY EQUALS MORE TROUBLE. FIAT ALLOWS GOVERNMENTS ‘STEROIDAL PURSUIT’ OF OBJECTS, PROGRAMS AND AGENDAS WHICH GIVEN WE LIVE IN A CURSED WORLD, CAN’T HELP BUT AMPLIFY TROUBLE (ESPECIALLY TRUE WHEN THE SPENDER IS AN ENTITY LOSING TOUCH WITH IT’S MORAL COMPASS).

    I’M AFRAID IT GOES BACK TO THE OLD GOOD VERSUS EVIL “FABEL” WHICH ADMITTEDLY ON THE SURFACE SOUNDS RIDICULOUS. BUT AHHHH…IS IT REALLY ALL THAT CRAZY? I WAS ONCE FOOLED BY THE WORLD…ARE YOU? CHRIST WAS EITHER EVERYTHING HE CLAIMED TO BE OR THE LIAR FOR ALL AGES (NO MIDDLE GROUND!). EACH OF US MUST DECIDE.

  • George

    Here’s my take. Obama got elected with a lot of votes from center-right voters. I believe he had hoped to retain their support while actually governing from the left. That has not proved to be easy to do. He has been losing this group steadily since inauguration, which is actually pretty common. We see this with all of our President’s approval ratings. However, until Obama’s approval rating drops below about 45%, he will still have most of his base behind him. These will be the last to leave. I think we can see that there has been some softening in the strength of support from Obama’s base, however. They don’t approve of his conduct of the war effort and the deals he has made to get Democratic Party Senators to vote for the health care reform bill, among other things. This softening will most likely show up in voters staying home rather than voting for Democratic candidates, which is critical to Obama getting much of his agenda through Congress.

    I do think Obama is making two critical mistakes that may very well cost him much more in the future. First, his initiatives are out of step with the priorities of the American people. The folks want him to work on improving the economy and bringing jobs back. Instead, he and the Democratic leadership are pushing health care reform, environmental laws addressing climate change, and other such bills like the one that will legalize illegal immigrants, none of which the American people want or feel very strongly about right now. Interestingly though, people are suspicious that all of these Democrat priorities may actually increase costs and may bring more pain if passed. Rubbing salt into the wound, we constantly hear about how the Obama’s are flying all over the world in first-class accommodations, taking expensive vacations, and having lavish parties while the rest of us are trying to just get by. Obama does not appear to “feel our pain” right now, a time when we need to believe he does.

    Secondly, the Democrats are not only not listening to the voice of the American people (Tea Parties & Town Hall meetings), they are criticizing them as being radical Republicans, when many do not identify with the Republican Party. People are offended by this, and want to be heard. It seems that the louder people shout, the harder the Democrats push the very things that the American people don’t want, or at least don’t want without a lot more open debate and discussion.

    I have read all of these posts on this site. Some blame Bush, some blame Obama and on and on. Our economic problems have been going on for years. Why doesn’t anyone want to admit this fact? This mess America is in right now did not happen overnight. It has been coming for a long time and it will take years, if ever, to get out of this mess. Democrats and Republicans all have been in office. They have all had their chance to do some good for America. Why didn’t they? Why didn’t they take their jobs seriously, work together and strive to make America strong and keep her strong? Both parties have made mistakes in one way or another. I do not blame one party, I blame both parties. There is no such thing as an honest politician. They all tell us things we want to hear. That is the nature of the game. It is nothing more than a big game that is played and whoever wins is the successor. You cannot tell me that a politican’s main goal is to work for the betterment of America. It is my belief they are career politicans and they want to be elected for their own selfish gain. What America needs is to start anew– elect new people. In fact, some of the people that weren’t as “popular” as the rest of the candidates may have been better for America.

      Each president when they get into office have their own agendas. It seems they can only focus on one thing at a time. This administration however,needs to stop worrying about health care(yes it needs fixing) but our economy is in the dumper. This man is more concerned about his legacy already,that he is going to take this country down completely. Sad ..he is a legend in his own mind.

  • Meteorlady

    Lets see – we are about at 45% of the people living off the government or are government employees so that would make sense that his rating is at this level. Everyone that works and needs their money would disapprove of most anything he has or is doing, the rest need the money the government provides to them though that same government has worked very hard to keep them in poverty.

  • Sally

    Impose a limit to 2 terms for 6 yr each for a total of 12 yrs. This would apply to both the house and the senate. There will be no big retirement salary-and they must live under the same rules that they impose upon the American people. That would stop the problem with career senators and congressmen who pack their pockets with the taxpayers hard earned money. What is good for one party will also apply to the other. no double standards. each stands accountable their states and not to party. All laws apply to them. Government should stay out of the pockets of labor, business, etc. The parties work together or no laws will proceed. The input of both parties should be the first line of government business. A house divided will not stand. Stop blaming and start making the elected government officals work for us — the people- if not get rid of them, by honest elections. Keep the elections honest and if there is a sign of voter fraud- by one party then that party forfeits. no back room deals and everything should be open and on C-span.

  • one old dog

    As a Viet vet who grew up in a country that was more civil, and people actually looked out for each other, not big Government. The more I see of current trends, the more, I believe that when someone brags of being progressive, it only means they are anti, everything this country has stood for, for well over 200 years.
    Many good men and women have paid the ultimate price to keep it free, we must do all we can, to not,let them to have died in vain. Freedom is a fragile thing and must defended constantly, against all those who wish to enslave Americans, to a big repressive government, as ours is well on the way, to becoming.
    American Freedom rocks, like no other system in history. Look at the definition of fascism, a dictatorial leader, severe economical and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.ultimately involving brutality. Does anything. sound familiar?

    Is Obama an African American because he had a VERY BLACK African father from Kenya (who spent little time in the USA) and a VERY WHITE American mother (who spent little time in the USA)? For the first 10 years of his life, Barack Hussain Obama Jr. spent little time in the USA.

  • Different Viewpoint

    I hate to say this to you people…but the way you’re looking at this is really screwed up. You shouldn’t be divided on Obama’s decisions just because of minor issues. You actually want his approval rating to go up. Whatever he’s doing, we need to unite on it. Let me give you an example of what I’m talking about:
    1. Obama wants to pass a bill
    2. We start arguing about it
    3. Several months pass
    4. The bill gets passed anyway

    You see what I’m saying? We wasted several months and what do we accomplish? Nothing. Democracy only works if we stand together. Besides, we’re stuck with Obama for 3 more years anyway (and no, he’s not going to get impeached unless he does something illegal, which he’s not) . Seriously, consider my point of view. It might solve the country’s problems one day.

    • usmadgirl

      Different Viewpoint,

      You seem to be a very nice person, but the progressives & conservatives can’t possibly unite. Notice that I didn’t say Democrats & Republicans.

      Progressives want to force their big government, Socialist agenda on this country on every aspect of our lives & take away from the “haves” & give to the “have nots”! Their ultimate goal is to destroy the economy & drive us into a One World Government. The majority of this country does NOT want any part of it. I can’t for the life of me understand why they would want to give up their freedom but something strange must’ve happened in their lives to encourage it – probably LIBERAL parents (left-over “hippies”) or Liberal professors. They THINK that we are too stupid to make the right choices or do the right things…in THEIR views!

      They have NO LOGIC or Common Sense as to how this country works & what makes it successful & don’t give a rats butt! They believe in abortion, gay marriage & anything illegal or immoral. They believe that God is the Earth & that the Earth has precedence over the people that MY God created! Animals also have precedence over humans!

      Conservatives want the Liberty & Freedom that our founding fathers intended for this country & a free capitalist market. Why would we want the government dictating what we can or can’t do, have or have not? Even worse than that, why would we want World Leaders telling us what we can do or what we have to share what WE’ve worked for with the 3rd world countries . We are generous people, but we want to contribute to charities of our own choosing, not what the US government or the world government forces us to do! We believe that the Federal government’s only job is to keep our country & borders safe, to fund our military & balance the budget & UPHOLD OUR CONSTITUTION. That’s it! By the way, we are supposed to be a Republic, NOT a Democracy!

      I’m not sure what you mean by not being “divided on Obama’s decisions on MINOR issues”. There ARE no MINOR issues with him. He has managed to spend more money than all the presidents from Washington to the last Bush COMBINED (yet he’s STILL blaming Bush for spending)! He’s TRYING to close Gitmo – the best place (tropical paradise) for terrorists! He’s close to destroying our economy intentionally & trying desperately to pass a health care bill that has nothing to do with health care for absolute control over the American people, the funding of abortions & control of who gets to live & who must die!

      He’s taken over private businesses & even allows himself to hire & fire people in those businesses. He’s dictating to companies how much they can pay their employees. He has no right to do that!

      He refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with terrorists because he is a sympathizer. In his book in his own words, he said he would side with Muslims.

      He’s going to pass “Crap & Tax” for even MORE control & send the middle class into poverty just to pay their energy bills & cause most businesses to be forced out of business with fines. It will drive up the costs of everything we buy!

      He wants to (& you can bet your butt he will) give amnesty to illegals in order to secure the Democratic vote forever!

      His administration has BRIBED members of Congress for their vote on his Health Care hoax!

      So, yes, he has done illegal things. As a matter of fact, everything he’s done is illegal by our laws & Constitution. The only reason we can’t do anything about it is because his radical progressives control the House & Senate!

      Some moderate Democrats & Republicans, blacks & whites HAVE united, but the unity is not in AGREEMENT with Obama’s decisions, but AGAINST his decisions! That is because we, in good conscience, can NOT condone anything he has done or is attempting to do.

      We can’t give up our values or our LIBERTY in order to boost Obama’s approval ratings! We’d have to be totally insane. If Obama succeeds in his agenda, our country is completely destroyed. How could we possibly unite for that purpose? He can’t just have respect for his office. You don’t just get respect because you demand it or THINK you deserve it. You have to earn it! He hasn’t earned anything except disrespect!

His records at Occidental college say he got “Foreign Aid’ from the U.S.Govt that makes him a foreigner! I will not support a man who says one thing out of the side of his mouth and then does another. he is not transparent when in fact he said he would be. he said so many things to get in office and did not have that right and even if he did have it he is NOT prepared or doesn’t have the experience to be in the office . NO I will NOT support the man, he IS NOTmy Presidnet, and IF I were in the military, I would NOT go where he sent me! I would not obey his ordres! (incidently there are those who have NOT obeyed his orders and yet they did nothing because they do not want the fact that they put thisman who is a foregner in office and it would be known. Watch allthis come out eventually!!!

    • George

      Different,

      It sounds to me like you’re saying 1) Obama will be our President for at least 3 more years, 2) he’s going to get what he wants regardless what we do, so 3) we might as well shut up and give him what he wants. This will save time. Isn’t that about it?

      If he really wants to get legislation through without too much push-back from the American people, then he needs to get aligned with what the American people want. This may mean shifting priorities and/or methods, but it will require listening to the likes of groups like the Tea Party instead of bashing them, and dropping the arrogant attitude.

    • JeffH

      Different Viewpoint…unfortunatley, you would rather roll over like a summisive animal than think independantly about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I and the majority of Americans cannot accept this destructive administration any longer. The aggression by Americans everywhere to resist the “change” that Obama and the liberal majority in Congress have in mind for America is to be commended, although the real work to restore responsible leadership lies ahead.
      Do not let up or submit for one second and keep the pressure on. The honeymoon with this Marxist thinker is over and his supporters are dropping like flies, everywhere. Do your homework and vote wisly. America depends on it.

  • John P

    You do not make the poor rich by making the rich poor.

    You do not make more jobs by damaging the finances of business that creates jobs.

    You do not strengthen banks by forcing them to make loans to people who cannot afford to make payments.

    The community reinvestment act was passed in the Carter Administration and sat quietly for years while Democrats supported the growth of ACORN. Once ACORN became powerful enough (Clinton Administration) the dogs were let loose and the risky loans for inflated urban properties in the “communities” were forced on the banks. Bankers are not stupid. They took those same regulations and made risky loans to yuppies who bought and flipped expensive houses and made lots of money and the Banks made money too. Then they figured that if you bundle a bazillion mortgages together, nobody can sort out how weak they really are. Then Banks bought insurance on the risky packages they just sold so when they failed Banks got paid (even though they no longer owned the packages). That was the rules put in place under Democrat controlled Congress with Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and other folks guarding the chicken coop and ignoring McCain’s warnings in 2005 concerning Ferddie and Fannie. Then the bubble burst. The relatively “safe” yuppie loans failed on top of the failing “community investments” that were really ACORN money machines. You can blame the Banks for working within the system they were given to make money out of a losing situation, but the situation came out of Democrat imposed banking rules under Democrat supervision. That is the real history without spin. And the folks who took large amounts of Freddie and Fanny campaign funds (Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Barak Hussein Obama) were not even questioned while George Bush was blamed for everything.

    And now we have “Universal Health Care” and “Cap and Trade”, which like “Community Investment” are the trap laid for the future. These two pieces of legislation will not crush the America we know and love during the Obama administration; they are the tools of the future that will be used to subjugate and control us working citizens and make tax slaves of our children and grand children. Obama is a “community organizer” who understands that the change he wants to make on America is a “salami game”. It takes time and many small slices away from the salamiloaf before folks discover that the loaf of salami is gone.

    Eventually, Obama will run out of rich people to tax and then it will be the middle class whose money he will take. Do you think he’s taxing the middle class now? You haven’t seen anything yet!

I am NOT trusting this man who speaks good words and yet does nothing but what he wants! His change is for us to cease as a natoin and be a communist nation controlled by the govt! Think negative people and think the worst when it comes out of Wash D.C. and the W.H. I tell you now, there is change coming to this country from D.C. that will make us all wonder why we didn’t get up and do something!!! I can see the handwriting on the wall, this NATION is thru …UNLESS, WE ALL Turn to the “Old Paths” of Jeremiah 6:16 KJV and return to the values that made this country great, because GOD is GREAT. The bible says “repent or perish, turn or burn!!! That is a nation or to single man or woman, SO>>>>get busy and return to the old paths!!!!!!!

      I agree with Homer. We had better repent to God. We have been EXTREMELY sinful, self-absorbed and have tolerated corruption with disturbing apathy. Look at all our dead proletariat Iraqis and how the American public barely cares. Why is God going to bless this nation? We’ve grown so decadent most the population if given 2 choices can’t even recognize what doing the right thing is anymore.

      As far as the government’s response to the underwear bomber, it’s just another example of problem-reaction solution they’ve most likely created since the story changed 4 times so far. Now we’re getting body scanners and the dumbed-down American public goes “Yay!”

    Norm – Stanley B. was very correct – I agree with him, we are Americans and IT IS OUR Whitehouse. Soon we will have to renovate
    it when Michelle has to move out, but it is Our Whitehouse. My father
    and my Uncles served in World War II. I was a mear child, but I do
    remember how we fought for Americans and lost a lot of Americans, and
    the entire United States (with exception to you and your family) prayed for and cheered homecoming Americans and we are still proud of
    our American Flag and our allegiance to it. Come on group!! Lets take
    “Our Country” back, including Our Whitehouse!! People like you, Norm,
    make my blood boil!!

    If we want to keep a true AMERICA then we have to start checking the people that are running for office starting from the birth canel to present day,but the word LAZY comes to mind.If you dont take the time then you have no complaining rights.
    I truly believe that any one running for office in AMERICA should be at least the 3rd. generation,60 years old, have business experience.known for their INTRGERITY and can read the CONTITUTION AND UNDERSTAND IT AND APPLY IT.
    If we made this a requirement,We wouldn’t have obama’s,schuaezeneggers, trying to run our country.
    And by the way lets get off using the phrase “Politically Correct” when that is nothing at this time correct about politic’s.
