Poll: 72% think Obama won’t make U.S. less safe
Hot Air ^ | April 13, 2009 | ALLAHPUNDIT

If we’ve lost the national security vote, what’s left?

Seventy-two percent of those questioned in the poll released Monday disagree with Cheney’s view that some of Obama’s actions have put the country at greater risk, with 26 percent agreeing with the former vice president…

CNN Polling Director Keating Holland pointed out the partisan divide evident in the results. “By a 53 percent to 46 percent margin, Republicans agree with Dick Cheney,” he said. “But more than nine in 10 Democrats believe that Obama has not made the country less safe from terrorism. They are joined by more than seven in 10 independents who don’t see an increase in the threat from terrorism since Obama took office.”

These numbers show exactly what the one and his entourage want them to show.

"nine in 10 Democrats believe that Obama has not made the country less safe from terrorism"

Delusional Denial.

And on Sept. 10th, 2001, most Americans had almost zero knowledge of al queda and, if asked, most probably thought it was a Mexican food with a lot of cheese on a tortilla.

Unfortunately, it take something major to get the attention of most Americans to help us form an opinion that looks more like reality instead of the fantasy we want our world to be.

In the age of obama, something major is coming to America...

These people are going to continue in this belief right up to the point where they are vaporized by a Russian or Chinese nuclear weapon from a massive first strike. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

So then if one were to stand upwind and spit into a crowd, there’s a 72% chance you will hit the deserving target. Check.

Why do you think things like WWII happened? Do you think it’s because the American people and their political “leaders” were being particularly smart?

Republicans, RNC and those holding political offices, are doing a lousy job of regularly communicating with their constituents with honest, accurate information as to what is going on in the nation. This really should be a constant endeavor without pulling any punches.

The Democrats all do it, while the Republicans sit in silence.

The American people want to believe the dem and repub parties are roughly equal, that they can throw one out for the other and nothing really bad happens. They also want to believe that if the Prez looks like a nice young guy everything is just fine and of course he would never make them less safe.

Unfortunately they are wrong, policies matter. But if Americans felt that way we would have had presidents Dole, McCain, etc. They don’t feel that way.

Get used to seeing more of these absurd polls. This is classic left wing politics. Influence the true public opinion through tainted poll results.

Well, if seventy-two percent of the sheeple think it, then it must be true! /sarcasm

Honestly the Buffoon-in-Chief is going to enter into endless negotiations with Iran. While Iran stalls in these negotiations they will go all out with their nuclear program. Once they have nukes, they will shut down the Straits of Hormuz, blackmail other oil-producing states, probably attack Israel, and supply terrorists too just for good measure. Oh yeah, I feel safer with BHO and Hillary Clinton running foreign policy.

Are there no adults left in our government? In the nation?

It's an artifact of continuous and continual soft advertising for Marxist Obama by the alleged "news" and entertainment media.

This sort of perpetual hardsell is what they do.

It was not sustainable in any country (Cuba, fmr Soviet Union, East Germany...) and it won't be here either.

And, once Joe Sixpack sees he's been lied to about a few things, he'll grow cynical about everything else from the media.

I hardly ever go to HotAir these days. Allahpundit stirs too much crap against principled Republicans. Since Michelle has been an absentee owner, HotAir has become the equivalent of kids shooting spitballs in study hall.

Something really bad is going to have to happen again in order to wake people up from their national security snooze session.

The MSM still controls the agenda today. Only wake-up call realities regarding the economy or security changes that.

The double negative is certainly irritating here, but it may be called for in this situation. Perhaps the 72% do not think Obama is making the U.S. more safe, just not making it less safe. Clear now?

What major city are we going to lose to a terrorist attack before these nimrods wake up? I nominate San Fransicko, provided that Michael Savage is elsewhere when it happens.

Even if something happens...people will crawl back into their dream worlds and forget. The horror of 911 is poof...never happened.
