What a start for Obama
|By Ralph R. Reiland
Monday, February 9, 2009
"Well, That Certainly Didn't Take Long" was the headline on Maureen Dowd's column in The New York Times last Wednesday.
Dowd, unswervingly a Bush-basher and pro-Obama over the past two years, was referring to Obama's success in knocking himself off his elevated pedestal within two weeks of his inauguration.
Obama and his "arrogant attitude" went "SPLAT" (caps in Dowd's original) after a "cascade of appointments who 'forgot' to pay taxes" and the development of a "helter-skelter stimulus package."
Rasmussen Reports survey on Feb. 2 found that only 37 percent of Americans favor the administration-endorsed stimulus package. In a Gallup survey completed on Feb. 1, Obama's approval rating is 64 percent, down 19 points since his inauguration. Six more weeks of the same and he'll be at zero.
Simply put, the King of Hope became the Emperor with No Clothes even before the magazine covers celebrating his inauguration were off the shelves at Borders and Barnes & Noble.
A grand jury is looking into $1.5 million in taxpayers' money that ended up in the coffers of California-based CDR Financial Products after the company donated $100,000 to [Bill] Richardson to register Hispanic and American Indian voters.
Timothy Geithner, Obama's now-confirmed Treasury secretary (a job that includes control of the IRS), also failed to "jump in" and pay $34,000 on money he earned from 2001 to 2004 while working for the International Monetary Fund. "Had his (Geithner's) vote come after the Daschle news, it's likely that Geithner would be the one leaving town today," reported Newsweek on Feb. 4.

The Ayatollah Crapola..
The Ayatollah Crapola..
He’ll be at the elementary school tomorrow.
King of Hope for Dopes, that is.
Odooma. changeling and traitor marxist. Scaring the sheeple to follow his commie doctrine of hope-a-dope.
Zero's the name, Empty suit's the game.
Good; maybe he'll learn something.
83% approval rating seems a little inflated to me, considering he didn’t get that many votes. 64 sounds more like the original number should be. Should be solidly below 50% by the end of the year and should continue dropping the rest of his tenure.
“Freshman Senator created by the Chicago Political Machine Becomes Leader of the Free World.” The fact that he doesn’t know how to lead would be consistent with that headline. Or maybe this would be better: “The office of President of the United States to be Renamed ‘Global Community Organizer’”
Smoking Gun: Democrat Insider Says “Obama Has Secret Plan to Fund a Patronage System”
I believe it. Listen particularly to the last line the guy says.
“Helter Skelter Stimulus”. Perfect. It is obvious Obozo has no clue what is in it. It is just something he got his socialist friends to come up with. The gang of three Republicans who will make this go should be purged.
I’ll be sharing this one.
I am giving him only 6 months before he falls from grace. And I am waiting for the disappointed liberal feeding frenzy to happen, of which Dowd's column is, most probably, a harbinger.
The gist of the matter is: the Dumbs had a perfect chance to elect Hillary and cement Dumbo policies for decades to come. Instead, they went overboard and got Zero elected, biting off way more than the public can chew, let alone digest. In many ways, I am glad McCain, an unpredictable "conservative", but a decent man, did not inherit this mess.
Good job on the photo. I have had a version of it on my FR page.
The problem is , using a USA analogy, you can’t send him back to the minors after a few weeks in the big leagues, you are stuck with him!
“Regarding the stimulus package, supposedly designed to create jobs, there’s no cut in the U.S. corporate tax rate, currently the highest in the world. For small business, the sector that created 79 percent of the net new jobs in the American economy over the past 15 years, there’s not much more than lip service in the stimulus package, i.e., tax relief that amounts to less than 2 percent of package’s various spending and tax-reform proposals.”
My husband said within 2 years, any corporation that would be able to give massive jobs would move out of the country. American assumes because everyone always has WANTED to come here, they would fight to stay in a sinking ship. I think he’s right.
Obama’s off loading and flip floping on Ayers and the American people is going to yield pay back time. Watch the revolutionary french socialist procession to the guillotine in a neighborhood near you soon... It started with BDS...
You arrogant, foul-attitude pimps caused the election of this incompetent, spoiled and unqualified “leader”.
America sinks because of you. Collusion in politics is not your role and frankly, your superficial judgment created the deep divide in this country while ushering a loser into the White House.
Zero at zero. I like the sound of that.
Timothy Geithner, Obama’s now-confirmed Treasury secretary (a job that includes control of the IRS), Anybody see a problem with that for some reason advanced information to obama comes to mind.
So, just who did Gallup poll here? Almost 50% voted AGAINST this clown, and many Hussein voters are already disappointed with the porkulousy bill. I feel his approval numbers should be reversed - 46%.
STOP Porkulus Maximus!
When I see the “O” ads for Overstocked.com on TV I think of the White House...overstocked with “Choose your own adjective.”
I’m beginning to get the feeling that we might be saying “I told you so,” sooner that I originally surmised.
BO is his name, stink is his game.
At least he’s not been attacked by a rabbit, yet.
Haha! Gotta show that one to my 15 year old son. He’s always saying “Fail” and “Epic fail”. It must be the latest saying in high school. :)
But...but...I thought Obama was going to end the “politics of fear!”
He did. I moved from fear as he ran for office to terror when the Community-Organizer-in-Chief was sworn in.
Chuck Todd, a liberal pundit, was on C-SPAN yesterday enthusiastically talking about how Obama might be able to mobilize the efforts of his supporters--apparently they have a database of 13 million names and even if 10% got involved at a particular moment, that's a lot of people. It sounded scary to me--a mass movement of mindless followers such as 20th-century totalitarian dictators were able to mobilize. Is that what America is headed for?
To be fair, RINOs have no problem with the Marxist Usurper. And there are some more conservative Republicans who wanted to give Him a chance. They were hoping he would grow into the job. So I think it’s possible for the two weeks post inauguration survey to be higher than, say, 60%. But there is no doubt in my mind that th 80% number was manufactured—along with most everything else about this presidential zero.
98.9346721% of statistics are made up on the spot.
He tried to walk thru a window and hit his head today on AF 1. The Barkulus is a klutz
Laugh of the day.
I once worked with a statistician. The guy could make any set of statistical data “prove” whatever outcome he desired.
Can anyone really tell me how The Marxist Onada has determined there are 11 million children without health care—without including illegals?
NO WE CAN'T !
