Skip to comments.AP Poll: Americans high on Obama, direction of US (MORE LIES FROM THE MSM)
Posted on 04/23/2009 4:52:17 AM PDT by truthandlife
For the first time in years, more Americans than not say the country is headed in the right direction, a sign that Barack Obama has used the first 100 days of his presidency to lift the public's mood and inspire hopes for a brighter future.
Intensely worried about their personal finances and medical expenses, Americans nonetheless appear realistic about the time Obama might need to turn things around, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll. It shows most Americans consider their new president to be a strong, ethical and empathetic leader who is working to change Washington.
Nobody knows how long the honeymoon will last, but Obama has clearly transformed the yes-we-can spirit of his candidacy into a tool of governance. His ability to inspire confidence Obama's second book is titled "The Audacity of Hope" has thus far buffered the president against the harsh political realities of two wars, a global economic meltdown and countless domestic challenges.
"He presents a very positive outlook," said Cheryl Wetherington, 35, an independent voter who runs a chocolate shop in Gardner, Kan. "He's very well-spoken and very vocal about what direction should be taken."

Make sure you read the whole article because it is the worst piece of garbage I have ever seen. I cannot believe anyone would believe this propaganda.
Another reason why the next tea party on July 4 needs to be a massive, nationwide protest against the liberal mainstream media. They are traitors and need to be publicly labeled as such.
There’s one honest word in this whole piece, “TOOL!” ;)
Americans are high?
Come on!!!! You need to put the barf alert on this crap!
I see the AP is hiring Unicorns to write stories now.
1. Say Dude, like, is Obama totally awesome man? Like with the economic picture, you-know the trillions of dollars stuff? Man!
2. Whoa, man that bummer Bush, like was he a downer? Got your check yet? Like the Obama-bucks are flowing — Man!
3. Obamas’ got like a totally awesome dog, now that is totally awesome. Right Man?
"We have exclusive proof,we are solvent,report honestly and accurately, have no agenda, and the American people love us and need us and and and have to be more patriotic and pay higher taxes"
11/23/2008: Cheryl Wetherington, owner of Ricetta Artisan Chocolates, said about 50 percent of the businesses she worked with last year are either not ordering or scaling back on their requests. Wetheringtons business, which also has seen new clients, creates chocolate bars, boxes and baskets used for customer and employee appreciate gifts.
Everyone seems to be holding their breath and waiting to see what is going to happen before they make the decision to spend, she said. http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2008/nov/23/economy-making-spirits-not-so-bright/
Other AP-GfK findings could signal trouble for Obama as he approaches his 100th day in office, April 29:
While there is evidence that people feel more optimistic about the economy, 65 percent said it's difficult for them and their families to get ahead. More than one-third know of a family member who recently lost a job.
More than 90 percent of Americans consider the economy an important issue, the highest ever in AP polling.
Nearly 80 percent believe that the rising federal debt will hurt future generations, and Obama is getting mixed reviews at best for his handling of the issue.
Believe this report is an outright lie —> very liberal neighbors are seriously disenchanted by the Obama administration and Barney Frank...
“I see the AP is hiring Unicorns to write stories now.”
Don’t you mean eunuchs?
I took a poll in my house and obambi got a 100% DISAPPROVAL rating!.........news @ 10.
Here is a thread last night that shows Obama’s approval ratings wobbly in Colorado.
No, Unicorns. You know...horney jackasses.
I did not even bother reading the whole piece of c**p. They are lame and astounding that they continue to delude themselves in thinking they are going to stop the opposition to this fraud they created and continue to try to prop up with this nonsense. It is one continuous steamy love affair with these scumbags. I don’t care what propaganda they put up, but it is going to hit them hard within the next yr. IF this happens to be true because they will not be able to deflect proper responsibility for long and the extreme direction they are taking this country. They live on lies and this is more of the same. I am no part of this bloodbath to this country and these people are going to have to answer for what they are doing and have done to this country in taking our freedoms and the deliberate lies and propaganda they continuously have committed in taking part in this communist/socialist/tyrannical takeover.
...much like they were on 9/11,9/12,9/13,9/14,9/15 of 01, but made sure they covered tracks and removed "the dots" from the horse and pony show known as the 9/11 Commission
This country and the World are in bad financial condition, and it ain’t gettin’ any better. Meanwhile, Obama insults our friends and pats our enemies on the back, while his subordinates stumble along. Who could be “high” about that?
Of course, big chunks of the media are biased towards the Democrats. That’s a fact of life that needs little comment.
Have we really gone this far down this socialist path that Americans, for God's sake, AMERICANS can't see or worse WANT this socialist solution? These are the same people raised in the same country as me and yet they sound like they are from outer space.
One of the first chapters in the 5,000 Year Leap talked about our founding citizens being ready, being culturally ready to accept Freedom.
Did people in Mussolini’s Italy and Hitler's early Germany feel like I do today? In some cases of history they say they knew something was wrong and they saw the propaganda, but didn't know what to do about it.
We held a Tea Party?! I am sorry, but at this point...big flippin’ deal. We got slimed with their propaganda and astroturfed by Congress. We want to change congress, but American culture is no longer ready to be responsible for their Freedom.
What caused the cultural revolution that lead to 1773 and the forming of America? There are keys back there we put up on the shelf in a safe place. We need to find them and unlock the door to Freedom again.
A sad, but true, depiction of the American media.
Don’t Know 19 (DON’T KNOW??????)
Dems (46) + Don’t Know (19) = 65%
Presto: His approval rating is 64%.
The Marxists’ Ministry of Information keeps cranking out the bull.
The lamebrains in the MSM love the fantasy of the socialist Utopia; with even a superficial reading of history, it’s clear as glass that such a fantasy never led anywhere except to national bankruptcy at best and, not infrequently, to tyranny at its very, very worst.
Still, they’ll keep lying their red @sses off until it’s too late to put the pieces back together again. And then they’ll pitch right in and... blame someone else. Cowards.
FUBAR. Utterly FUBAR.
i guess if they say it enough more people will believe it....it amazes me though considering each passing day i run into more and more disenchanted obama voters wishing they hadn’t cast their vote for him...i just look at them and say i tried to warn you...
It's 9/10 and the Towers never existed.
Evan my husban who voted for him and said”give him a try” called him a Moron the other day. He also said his office is calling Obama...”the one hit wonder” HOPE!
And yet, the percentage of Americans saying the country is headed in the right direction rose to 48 percent, up from 40 percent in February. Forty-four percent say the nation is on the wrong track.
A four percentage point positive on one question turns into "The country LOVES Obama!!!"
I hate to burst MSM’s bubble; but I think it’s quite the opposite.
Exactly. The media still control the newspaper headline, the top of the hour radio news headlines, and the bottom of the screen news crawl. The left knows that for the brain dead majority of people, this is their only source of news.
This explains news headlines like the recent “Palin Didn’t Pay Taxes,” which, if you actually read the story, referred to 2008 taxes when it appeared in 2009. (in other words, taxes that were not due until April.) The only thing that mattered was giving prominence to those four words so idiots would notice them.
Yep. The news media knows exactly what they are doing. The devil is always in the details. Ron Fournier is the ultimate socialist writing the Left’s drivel.
The title of the article should say “Americans who are high, favor Obama”.
Those are damn encouraging numbers!!
Oh my goodness, I was saying the EXACT same thing last year before the election. Last year I spent several weeks away from home (and my talk radio and computer) caring for a family member in Hospice. The only news I caught was the top of the hour radio. I remember remarking to my husband after returning home that if that was all the news that Top 40 or country music or sports radio listeners got, it was no wonder Obama won. The reports ALWAYS contained a pro-Obama story and a Sarah Palin hit piece. Even the Fox radio blurbs followed this template.
Has Media Matters ever done any research on this?
“PRAVDA WAS A BUNCH OF PIKERS”
Barry is trouble look at the internals. http://www.ap-gfkpoll.com/pdf/AP-GfK_Poll_Topline_April_2009.pdf
Zero's falling fast. This poll is an act of sheer desperation.
There are fibs, lies, statistics and polls.
Oops, I meant Media Research Council, Brent Bozell’s group.
Can you imagine the poll results if the MSM polled someone outside of their industry?
It's been said "He who robs Peter to pay Paul will always have the support of Paul".
0bama has clearly split the country into "Peters" and "Pauls".
And he is clearly a favorite of the "Pauls".
