“It’s ugly,” said independent pollster John Zogby. “Ugly and sad because there were many of us who felt the ugliness could be transcended this time.”
Maybe if the Kenyan wasn’t conducting a communist coup?
This from the cheerleaders of the 0, who in 1 year has created a large deficit then ALL of the "Bush deficits" combined.
Spare us the hysteric hypocrisy and hyper rabid partisan ignorance McClatchy
The reporter mentions Watergate but nothing on Carter and Iran. Mentions how things faded in the ‘80’s, but doesn’t mention Reagan for making things right.
Translation from Leftist propagandist speech:
"It's all Bush's fault" Article# 800009021564831164947133
So zogby thought the ugliness would be transcended with the election of this communist, lying usurper who happens to be black?
Many naive people thought so, too. For an excellent column on why that was an unrealistic idea, here is Thomas Sowell’s take on it:
And again, John Zogby proves his "independent pollster" label is in question.
I suspect that most people have not yet worked up the gestalt but the gut is telling them that the administration is getting too extreme for their liking.
What's ugly & sad is that millions of fools voted this POS into office b/c they were TOLD he would usher in a glorious New Day. The fact that is was an out & out lie isn't sad OR ugly... simply historical fact.
[The reason people were wary of Dr. Emanuel in the first place is because of his writings from the 1990s in which (to quote one of them), he advocated giving younger people first dibs on medical care: Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years. In late 1996, he wrote that services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed.]
Just as it was "transcended" when George Bush asked for unity in the face of the 9/11 horror?
Why is it that non-partisanship is only supposed to be shown by conservatives, but never by libs?
I am mad because this President and Congress are destroying the fiscal viability of my country. Is that a good enough reason? Methinks so.
Who is this employee of the newspaper?
The anger against the Establishment in the 1960s and 70s was the doings of the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble.
Now they and their ideological issue (children) are Rat Party (formerly the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party) leaders and stalwarts. Arguably they are "the Establishment."
(That ain't name calling. The Sixties Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble really have taken over the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party. Under the hail of "neo-con" taunts many Democrats fled the Party.)
Today it's not anger it's RESCUE.
I guess the newspaper employee is one of the Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble or one of their ideological children.
Sure, and I'm Martha Stuart.
Americans are an ornery bunch...thank God!!!
“Finger pointing and yelling at town hall meetings this summer are signs of a country that’s been building toward a boiling point for several years, stressed by a fast changing economy, a flood of immigration and threats at home by terrorists.”
Part of the problem is that we don’t really have a national identity anymore. ‘Nationalism’ has become defined in the most negative sense, and patriotism equated with being an uninformed or uneducated ‘flag waver’ who doesn’t understand the ‘worldly’ nuances as defined by journalists, politicians, and academics.
We’ve had lots of shifts in demographics, and we’ve taken the ‘melt’ out of melting pot. So people feel like they are losing their country because it isn’t familiar to them anymore. The democrat supported tactic of pushing the immigration of those who are most likely to vote democrat has contributed significantly to the shifting demographics, and ultimately is highly destructive to the nation.
Lawn greening material.
I rarely read articles of this ilk anymore. What is apparent from my vantage point is the creeping power of the Federal, State, and Local governments since WWII. Uncle has his snoot into everything. Uncle has a say in the design of gas cans so now it is virtually impossible to use them in many applications. Uncle controls the pestacides that one may use on your garden and in you orchard for food exclusively for your own use. The have reached a level where they are no longer effective. Consequently, you loose your vegetables and fruit to Japanese beetles and to bees and other insects. Your labor is lost. Three to five million children die per year from malaria (a particularly horrible way to die) because we won’t spray with DDT (so some raptors won’t lay thin eggs!!).
We have seen the center of our major cities decay away, our heavy industries (with their jobs) move offshore (to countries that have nuclear armed MIRVed ICBMs aimed at the continental US), and our public morals debased to the point where TV and most music is not suitable for a reasonable person. We have seen instances of corruption on all levels go with no effective reprimands (legal or morally). We kill (some say murder) millions of unborn (mostly black) babies annually supported by public funds yet evening praying outside one of the murder factories nets a jail sentence. We have seen the Federal government take over and control major American corporations. How long will we let this continue in the land of the free and the home of the brave?
When half the country tries to enslave the other half, is it really surprising half the country is angry?
The writer at this state media outlet might want to consider the implications of that.
