Poll: Americans Oppose Obama's First Two Executive Orders President Obama's first two executive orders -- allowing federal funding for overseas abortions and closing Guantanamo -- have been met with widespread opposition, according to a poll released Tuesday.
Tuesday, February 03, 2009
Though President Obama has garnered widespread support for his early actions in office, Americans strongly oppose the commander-in-chief's first two executive orders -- allowing federal funding for overseas abortions and closing Guantanamo -- according to a poll released Tuesday.
Fifty-eight of Americans said they disagreed with the president's decision to give overseas funding to family planning organizations that provide abortions, according to a Gallup poll published Tuesday.
Obama signed an order Jan. 23 reversing the "Mexico City policy" -- a prohibition first implemented by Ronald Reagan, which forbade the U.S. government from sending money to overseas family-planning organizations that perform abortions or offer abortion counseling. The ban, which once was lifted when Bill Clinton took office, was later re-established by George W. Bush in 2001.
The poll also found that more Americans -- 50 percent to 44 percent --oppose the President's decision to close the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects within in a year -- a sign that the president's first two executive orders may be off mark.

Well, what the F* did this idiots think when they went to the polls in November and voted for “change”?
I changed my tagline the first day he did these EO’s.
You wanted change...you got it. It’s all you’ll have left.
GET USED TO IT, AMERICA!
YOU WANTED CHANGE, RIGHT?!
WELL, YOU GOT IT!
“Well, what the F* did this idiots think when they went to the polls in November and voted for change?”
They wanted the Obama Administration to “change” into the Clinton Administration.
Most of them had no clue what they were voting for besides
“the cool black guy”
Well, the voters got a pig in a poke, and now they’re stuck with it. Good and stuck and good enough for ‘em. Actions have consequences - and he ain’t through yet.
I’m watching Gibbs right now on FNC. This administration is clueless.
Obama has been a solid disaster the first few weeks. Just like we thought a witless ideoluque would be. To his cabinet pics, to the bloated stimulus plan all the way down to his choice of the “Beast” mega SUV limo, he has been solidly tone deaf. He’s a one termer.
So why in hell did so many American sheep vote for him? They did not think he would do this or is the reality of what he’s doing sinking in?
Our fellow Americans are idiots....easily duped by the MSM, their profs, their union bosses, and so on. They have sold out the republic....just so they could say we elected a black guy.
“Well, the voters got a pig in a poke, and now theyre stuck with it.”
The during the election cycle voters watched a sharply produced infomercial. The audience members, sychophants all. Now that they have the “product” home, some are having buyer’s remorse as the “product” isn’t what was advertised and doesn’t live up to the hype.
I hope he’s a one-termer. Still, he can do a lot of damage in one term.
They thought they were sick of bad Iraq news and bad economic news and that McCain is old and cranky.
Exactly! The people who voted for this immature, inexperienced narcissist are the same people who thought Republicans had been in control of Congress for Bush’s last years in office. They don’t even know when their own candidates are in office, and are really the ones screwing them. Wait until the terrorists released from Guantanamo attack the U.S. again. I predict a one term presidency for this moron.
If God chooses mercy, 0bama will have only one term,
and it will be in such turmoil that nothing will “get done”.
Amazing isn’t it? He said he would do exactly as he has done and people are upset. Kind of makes me think he was a hypnotist on the campaign trail.
Give him more time... he’s nominating as fast as he can...
King said he lived for the day when “a man would be judged by the content of his character - not the color of his skin”.
So what do all the blacks do? Vote for the color of the skin rather than the content of the character. Amazing? Not really.
“Give him more time... hes nominating as fast as he can...”
Zero should start raiding prisons for nominees. His homie Kwame is available.
So how many Americans (unrepetant Capitalists) did Bill Ayers say they’d have to exterminate to get America “rebuilt”?
Starting with gun registration and confiscation.
Let’s be honest a lot of Americans are acting like uninformed idiots.
They approve his first days in office, they just oppose what he’s done during his first days in office!
He got out this morning, didn’t he?
I'm truly sorry for what has happened. I'm truly sorry the “Not Ready For Prime Time Players” are in charge. If the consequences weren't so horrifying, I'd laugh.
You all think this is bad? Wait until the Executive Order comes that bans importation of any foreign firearms, ammunition of components of either for civilian use. That, combined with a registration bill and AWB II will make a lot of federal employees instantly popular with the gun owners of this country...kind of like deer are popular during the right season in most of the country.
Class A, Grade A disaster, that’s what this guy is. A walking fustercluck.
and it will be in such turmoil that nothing will get done.
There is a silver lining to the cloud — we're too broke to do too much — oh, wait — they're printing money. Never mind.
0bama is a Miserable Failure ... surrounded by a Pervasive Culture of Corruption.
This last election made me realize what “Kingdom” that I belong to, and it isn’t an earthly one.
I’m sitting back and watching this drunk we call American society destroy itself through its own choices, knowing that there is nothing I can do until it chooses to stop making those decisions.
Like what? I don't remember anything he's done other than to undermine our security, morals, and economy. And, BTW, Mark Steyn just said on Rush's show that the IRS should hire Obambi's transition team since they are so good at identifying tax cheaters. LOL!
... ummm ...
Mopping a pig-sty with raw sewage ....
“So why in hell did so many American sheep vote for him?”
It only proves what we said all along, those that voted for him had no idea what his policies were.
They voted for a celebrity and like most celebrities he is an empty soul.
Jesus said it would get darker and darker before His return,
and His lights will shine all the more brightly in that darkness.
“Yes we deeyed!”
Jesus would be wicked cool, but I'd settle for the Second Coming of Ronald Reagan.
his first EO was to lift the ban against killing babies in other countries? this was such a pressing issue on his mind that it topped his list??
i guess the culture of death isn’t meeting their quota and wants to expand to new markets.
and doesn’t this make him a baby killer? can we start calling the libs baby killers now? (that’d be so rich)
here’s a thought... why is my tax money killing foreign babies? why doesn’t their government kill their babies for them?
i’m just asking...
I’m waiting for code punk to call for his impeachment because of the rockets into Pakistan and the coming build-up in Afghanistan.
I think we got a glimpse of one of Jesus’ “will implementers” in this last election.
That would seriously explain the reaction of Satan’s minions to her.
Now, let's see, how could John Q Public know f all about how he was handling the transition? Is not that much of a public spectacle after all. Could it be that's what Katie, Tom, Brian, Keith, Chris and Georgie S told them? After all the public part I saw had him nominating 2 Cabinet postions with persons who had to withdraw under scandal and 4 others; Hillary, Eric, Carol and Tim that, in any normal sense of the world should have had no chance for confirmation.
That’s why I keep hanging in there. That’s why I keep my faith and my word. That’s why (in spite of every bait that is put out there) I don’t take it. That’s why I live and breathe — if it weren’t for Him, this would have been a major waste of my time.
Change You Don't Like
.....yes, but, but...change is the essential element.
B3 = BringBackBush
They thought they were sick of bad Iraq news and bad economic news and that McCain is old and cranky.Yup. Sort of like driving your car off a cliff with your family in it because the engine has a rod knocking and the wheels are out of alignment.
Very, very intelligent, the American electorate is. Very, very intelligent.
