Obama has gone from Dear Leader to Deer (in the headlights) Leader in six months
The Collins Report ^ | July 23, 2009 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Posted on 07/23/2009 6:13:11 AM PDT by jmaroneps37

The King’s “new suit of clothes” is turning out to be a Kenyan loincloth.

People are seeing Barack Obama as the fraud he is. His popularity is going south. Although he got 53% of the popular vote and a huge Electoral victory, things have changed. Yes they danced on the streets of Harlem and toasted in the liberal big cities, but that’s changed. George Bush is gone but so are the cheers. Hope has turned to sour change.

Help! I’m melting!

In January Rasmussen’s index showed Obama’s approval number was 20 points above his disapproval rating. Today Obama is at -5 and has been in minus territory since July 1 when people started to understand his plans. CNN reports Obama’s below 60% in an average of five major polls.

For many supporters Obama has quickly slipped from “competent and worthy of their trust” to someone to fear. There’s a growing dread about his plans.

While a simple majority of Americans are still willing to believe Obama is innocently incompetent, they will soon be outnumbered by those who understand Obama is a liar who is purposely trying to destroy America and turn us into France.

Losing allies

People like Mort Zuckerman and Susan Estrich have turned on Obama. Freshman Democrats frightened of losing their seats are threatening “rebellion” if they're forced to vote for Obama’s Healthcare scheme.

He is being called a liar more frequently and an AOL poll shows 60% think Obama is just another tax and spend liberal Democrat. He can’t lie as well as Clinton and the pressure of trying is giving him that “deer in the headlights” look when he lies as he did last night.

He’s wobbling. The “love and trust” is gone. Let’s kick him while he’s down so he can’t ever get up.

The stupid comment about the Cambridge police acting stupid will backfire. It may stir his troops up a bit, but they are already with him. Other people looking for more reasons to turn on Obama will find his crack very offensive.

It was painful watching the magic smoke drain from the room.

Yes, in addition, he now attacked physicians as greed merchants, accusing them of being biased toward performing unnecessary surgeries because of higher reimbursement.

What a buffoon. He now demonizes doctors, as well as “the rich,” greedy Wall Street, and so on. His politics of fear and demonization is now extended to doctors.

What a doofus. And I loved the part about how he talked about “far out” investements by the banks.

This Stooge teleprompter reader has no clue, and the wheels are coming off.

Its fantastic to watch his political meltdown on Prime Time TV. Lets watch as the Democrats fracture, and being squabbling among themselves as Obama’s popularity sinks further!

The wheels are coming off the wagon. As I speculated some time back—the only person who can bring down Obama is Obama himself. In 6 more months he will be the most hated man in America. The people who will hate him the most—my speculation—will be Blacks.

‘The stupid comment about the Cambridge police acting stupid will backfire’

In fact it was the professor that acted stupidly. Just show your ID. The policeman was doing his job. We are also forgetting there could have been real criminals needing the policeman’s attention. Instead it was wasted on the professor.

I’d say his illustration of the government denying a child a tonsilectomy and treating the kid for an allergy instead, was a bad move.

Yep - that “stupid” remark further demonstrates AGAIN, the types of friends Obama has. Any decent person would have been grateful to the police for making sure their house wasn't getting robbed and would have gladly handed over their identification.

Add another friend of Obama’s to the hate whitey list.

Yes, on the tonsillectomy story. I did not watch too much of the news conference, but did catch that part, and it was clear he was accusing (all?) doctors of being dishonest and in it for profit only. And felt that HE should be the one to decide who gets tonsillectomies... I have to believe that no only ticked off the doctors, but many parents who actually trust their doctors and do not want 0bama making the diagnosis and treatment decisions for their children. (HA HA)

It was scary because it shows the lack of understanding about medicine as well as the lack of compassion this freak has. He is pretty damn dumb for a m an with an ivy league education (but many are begining to believe an ivy league education is not worth the paper the diploma rest upon in terms of real education)

He not only accuses doctors of unnecessary use of tests to up their fee (ridiculous on its face and said WITHOUT MENTION of LAWSUITS against doctors for NOT ORDERING the right tests that happen every day) but he offers the advice of PAIN PILLS instead of surgery for folks.....I mean...is Obama truly stupid or is he just cruel.

If he wants to cut the cost of medicine....CAP the lawsuits that lawyers bring against doctors so that doctors do not have to pay well over one HUNDRED THOUSAND dollars per year (family doctors....who knows what surgeons have to pay)in insurance against law suits.

I don't believe anyone here thought 0bama would be "competent and worthy of their trust" , but maybe most of the ignorant sheeple in the Country did. How could he be competent, when he never really had a job, and his agendas all pointed toward marxist ideas?

I've always thought he was "someone to fear", both for the Country's sake, and for my own personal safety. I believe others feel similarly and I strongly believe that is the primary reason that "guns and ammo" are flying off the shelves, not just because he plans to ban firearms.

It is encouraging that some are finally waking up to this fraud. Let's pray it is not too late.

I said yesterday that it was a mistake for Obama to attempt to sell his healthcare plan when:

1-Most people are afraid of losing their jobs BECAUSE they perceive his “stimulus” to be harming the economy, not helping it. Healthcare is on the bottom of their list of concerns.

2-No proponent of the healthcare plan will clearly answer the question as to whether people’s current plans will survive the reform, including Obama.

3-No proponent will guarantee that illegal immigrants won’t benefit from our tax dollars with the plan, including Obama. We feel we are being sold a bill of goods.

4-Even young people are witnessing in events around them the validation of capitalist principals, and simultaneously the results of socialism we conservatives warned them about. All our predictions are coming true, and the evidence is impossible to refute.

It’s extremely frightening that without citing any particular case or even a study, Obama keeps stating that medical treatment people receive is “not helping” them and can just be denied and you will all be better off. It’s a ghoulish left wing approach and can’t possibly be “improving” health care.

Think a reporter could have asked him is it proven there is a rash of unneeded tonsilectomies? I’ve found doctors to be reluctant to order extra procedures.

I never thought I would live to see the day when people are thinking and saying, “Gee I wish Bush was back as president.” It only took six months for Obummer to make his administration a laughingstock and the poster child for incompetence, recklessness and arrogance. This is the worst administration in US history.

Before we all get too excited.....

90% of what Hussein is doing to destroy this country he can continue to do regardless of his popularity numbers.

Yes, it is vital we stop Cap & Trade and socialized medicine. But commie judges, (unconstitutional) executive orders, terrorist appeasement, sabotage of democracy (Honduras), EPA regulations (co2) that destroy industry, wildly printing money, ACORN fixing the census, and so on. None of these require congressional assistance.

I’m not sure how we are going to do it, but we need to neuter this man (note to government lurkers: metaphorically, of course)

People that believe themselves to be victims will always project blame on everyone but themselves. They are incapable of self analysis because they have no spiritual grounding.

Well, looks like the shine is coming off the brass and the tarnish is starting to show. Like I told someone the other day:

You can sugarcoat a turd.
You can gold-plate a turd.
You can chocolate coat a turd.

It is still a turd underneath.

I think Obummer’s popularity among blacks is finally starting to erode some.

They are waking up to the fact that his promises were empty.

They are waking up to the fact that his overall policies are hurting them rather than helping them.

They are waking up to the fact that as Obummer goes on and continues down this path that he will make it damn near impossible for another black to ever be elected president again. Nobody will trust any black especially a liberal one who runs for president ever again.

And the fact that Obummer’s popularity and poll numbers are crumbling along with the fact that Obummer is taking the MSM down with him in flames is very satisfying as well.

That is an excellent point, and many in the far-left nutroots are insisting that is actually the plan. A second term is a far distant priority to cementing Socialism in the USA. Part of me would actually like to see them cram thru this health care bill, because the result would be hitting a self-destruct switch that will blow the Democrat party to smithereens. But in the interim Bam will slam 80% of us into a Public Option and once done Conservative hands will be tied.

Well, here in the military, I know many voted for the Ø. Listening to them talk now, they had more respect for Bush than they now have for Ø.

Many of them are also concealed carry licensed. After I showed them the bills trying to limit guns and/or ammo and the military cutbacks, they were calling him a f-****- n-***-, etc. He lost the respect of many military people.

Is it possible Gates staged the whole thing? Pretend to break into your own house, hoping someone will call the police? Then, when they arrive, resist arrest as much as possible, and no matter what happens, cry racism because: A black man was arrested trying to get into his own house!
