The audacity of tooting your own horn.

Stop, look, listen... pure propaganda.

“Today’s new Gallup poll puts him at 59%. Compare him to previous presidents one month in, such as G W Bush (62%), Jimmy Carter (71%), Bill Clinton (59%), George H. W. Bush (63%), and Richard Nixon (60%), and you’ll discover that all we’re seeing is the public withhold judgment.”

Which makes sense.
The libs will approve and half the rest will be in wait-and-see. But ...

“Now compare his disapproval ratings (people who’ve already made up their minds they don’t like him), 25% to George W Bush (21%), George Bush (13%), Ronald Reagan (18%), Jimmy Carter (9%), and Richard Nixon (6%). The only one with a higher disapproval rating was President Clinton, on his way to losing both houses of Congress.”

29% according to latest Ras ... The stimulus is a hoax, the econ policies are all wrong and Obama is the wrong man to lead us through these tough times.

[This jerk’s over-reaching hubris is going to spell the end of his disastrous administration, I’m convinced of it.]

I agree and sure hope so.

I think Obama is the Britney Spears of politics. At first she was pretty cute, until the novelty wore off and you found out she was just a chubby insane crazy whore.

I can’t wait for the “Leave Obama Alone” on Youtube.

Tonight will be pure propaganda between his speech and the pundits who will interpret it for the rest of us.

“President Obama has accomplished more in 30 days than any president in modern history,”

Looks like the 'NewSpeak' propaganda arm of the Federal-Media complex is functioning in high gear.

Good post...really...the numbers are not lying and they are the numbers that matter...the negatives are startling...you should post (with a link) to the forum...

Perhaps 0bama has indeed 'done' more in the first 30 days than any other modern president. But the question is whether what he's done are the best things for the USA and the rest of the world. So, far the main reactions (economically, public opinion etc.) have been quite negative.

Another thing is that 0bama is not delivering on the transparency pledges that he made during his campaign where he promised that the public would be able to view and comment on pending bills he proposed for several days before they came to a vote, but instead the 'stimulus' budget was rushed through Congress without even Congress having any time to digest and discuss the plan. This is unacceptable.

Newspeak From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Newspeak is a fictional language in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. In the novel, it is described as being "the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year". Orwell included an essay about it in the form of an appendix[1] in which the basic principles of the language are explained. Newspeak is closely based on English but has a greatly reduced and simplified vocabulary and grammar. This suits the totalitarian regime of the Party, whose aim is to make any alternative thinking — "thoughtcrime", or "crimethink" in the newest edition of Newspeak — or speech impossible by removing any words or possible constructs which describe the ideas of freedom, rebellion and so on.

“It will also allow the administration to brag a bit. “

Brag???? Give me a f**king break! That’s like the Detroit Lions “bragging” about being an NFL team.

I actually think President Obama has accomplished more in thirty days than any other ‘modern’ President.

Don’t think any of it was ‘positive’ for himself, his administration, this congress, or this nation, however.

But the dollar amounts thrown to the wind seems to confirm the statement.

Well, I looked at the Dow charts on Yahoo Finance.

I only went back to Carter. More out of laziness, than anything else.

Since his inauguration, Obama, indeed, has destroyed more wealth than any of the last six presidents managed in the same time frame. Dow is off 15% since he took office.

The president that did the best over the same time frame? Interestingly enough, Jimmy Carter. Dow went up a little more than 5%. Most of the rest were pretty flat.

He’s right. Not many presidents can cite a 20% decline in the DOW Industrials within their first 30 days in office.

The punk has done more toward undoing our constitution and destroying our freedoms than any previous president. I am sick of the narcissistic bastard in one short month.

Right. ‘I am the greatest’. More self-congratulation than the whole of the Clinton era. Just means all will have to be undone somehow.

"President Obama has accomplished more in 30 days than any president in modern history," a senior White House official said today in a background briefing.
