Posted on 07/21/2009 12:37:22 PM PDT by Kartographer
The hope and optimism that washed over the country in the opening months of Barack Obama's presidency are giving way to harsh realities.
An Associated Press-GfK Poll shows that a majority of Americans are back to thinking that the country is headed in the wrong direction after a fleeting period in which more thought it was on the right track.

HEY LIBS: "IN MACY"S WINDOW!"
Hey libbies!!! Back to reality!!! LOL!!!
But I wonder what the his poll numbers are for the people who think he can riase the dead, cure cancer and arrange for the Cubs to win the world series are? :-)
As The One sees it, he has one job: turn America into Western Europe...so we can all be equal.
This guy is a Marxist who is looking for a way to manage-down our standard of living.
No free pony?
No gumdrop forest?
No free unicorn rides?
The evil ogre Bush has been vanquished but the earth isn’t permeated with attar of roses?
Amazing that AP admitted it, and didn’t try to hide it.
The current pres’s policies are a failure.
“harsh realities” - yeah the harsh reality is he and the lib Democrat marxists SUCK.
In the runup to the election, I tried to get some Obamatrons I know to clearly explain what they thought he was going to accomplish. Other than some vague references to "bringing the country together," "giving us hope," "bringing change," etc., they couldn't verbalize what their expectations were. This is what happens when too many people vote for an image or style, rather than a package of real ideas and solutions. These people are in for an emotional crash landing.
Don’t forget the seas will rise.
An Kenyan KGB agent working for the destruction of America could not do a better job as president
“The hope and optimism that washed over the country....
“The hope and optimism that washed over the left and it’s band of useful idiots....
He has created untold misery in this country. He is asking people to vote for putting their parents and grandparents down like animals, he has taken our savings, he has made us unsafe ETC, I could go on and on. He is absolutely a disgrace.
If we are to ever have any peace like we used to have, Obama and his communists need to be kicked to the curb.
They have already ruined America. I am sickened by it.
How many of us long for days gone by?
I’m still waiting for him to pay for my rent, utilities, grocery bills, fuel, entertainment, dining out, clothing, etc.. When does that start? Oh, and I need a massage.
You wish he was turning America into Europe - more like Zimbabwe and Pakistan.
If youre not outraged, youre not paying attention.
Didnt our ancestors leave Europe to get away from this crap?
Barack Obama: A new chapter in American history, Chapter 13.
I hope I have some change left in four years.
Hows that hopey, changey thing working out for you?
Honk if Im paying your mortgage.
The big three couldnt sell me a car, so they stole my taxes instead.
Are you better off than you were $4 trillion dollars ago?
Hey, Barack, were baroke!
No we cant
afford any of this.
Where’s my skittle-crapping flying unicorn?
Is there ANY way we can convince more than HALF the American electorate, that we should START with reality,
and slowly , very slowly,IF AT ALL, and only “for fun”, build to these ethereal concepts like “hope” and “change”.
All of US knew what to expect with Obama, and we found out an alarming number of dumbed-down Americans were looking for a Messiah, in this “secular” society.
..”better than Bill Clinton and about even with George W. Bush six months into their presidencies.”
Translated: Bush’s was higher.
Certainly by the time he starts his third term you should be well on you way to getting these needs fulfilled.
Not long after The One’s inauguration I heard a couple of ladies talking on the subway on the way home from work, one was telling the other about the TALF program and how Obama was going to bail her out of all her credit card debt. I started laughing, I’m sure they knew I was laughing at that comment but both ignored me and kept talking about “Barack this and Barack that.” It was sickening and hillariious at the same time.
Looks like the Shooting Star is on a downward trajectory. His curve is bending.
Lying liberal AP bullcrap. Notice how easily and painlessly they slip it to you.
There is no "Carbon/Global Warming" problem other than the confiscation of wealth using AGW as a figleaf.
There is no "health care crisis" other than the desire of goobermint schmucks to seize control over 17% of the economy, for no good reason.
Iraq is a win, if the asshole-in-chief would just accept it and move on. Gitmo is a phoney leftover crust of bread from the campaign. No one cares about these terrorist scum. Really.
Iran and the Middle East are no-brainers, fumbled away by those with--no brains.
The economy is in dire need of benign neglect, with damage control at the margins, as the credit bubble corrects itself, admittedly painfully. Everything the jerkoffs at treasury, the fed, and Czar Central have done has made it worse. In other words, Socialist douchebag Obama has created his own problems and he deserves to stew in them.
1. Obama’s approval rating is 10th out of the 12 modern presidents.
2. Only 23% of respondents to this poll regarded themselves as Republican.
The only thing that washed over me was an upset stomach the day that that muzzie S.O.B. and his band of acorns stole the election-still got it too!
Start with seeds of doubt--"I dunno, its been six months and I haven't seen anything get better yet. That's a long time for this bailout thing to sit there dead in the water. Especially if you're one of people who are still losing jobs the last couple months."
Let reality seek its own level. Obamanoids are like cult-victims. they need to surface on their own.
Years ago, “New” Coke was launched with much fanfare and marketing savvy. Consumers were not fooled. But unfortunately all we have today are idiots texting on cell phones. It’s gonna be a long eight years.
I believe the media is so willingly reporting this because they are trying to help Obama. They want us to relax and stop fighting this issue because we think the battle is won. Do not fall for this again! There were no PUMAs.
Those who live in states with Blue Dog leadership need to pound them and keep pounding them until the defeat is so humiliating that Obama wont dare raise it for the rest of his term.
LOL...Insert you're own joke here.
