Skip to comments.AP to Americans : Stop being “grouchy”
Posted on 11/11/2009 9:07:30 AM PST by RobinMasters
Dan Calabrese notices a scolding tone coming from the Associated Press in reporting its latest polling. It headlines the report by noting that a grouchy public [is] sticking with Obama, having seen a 54% job approval rating in its survey but some bad numbers on the issues. Does the AP report those falling levels of support as a consequence of Barack Obama doing a poor job? No, as emphases from Dan and myself show:
The public grew slightly more dispirited on a range of matters over the past month, including war and the economy, continuing the slippage that has occurred since Obama took office, the latest Associated Press-GfK poll shows.
This comes at a time when he is trying to revive the struggling economy, considering sending more troops to the 8-year-old Afghanistan war, muscling a health care reform overhaul through Congress and hoping to push through other ambitious measures like legislation focused on climate change.

First I was bitter - now I’m grouchy?
Lets see how the Ass. Press likes it when Obama turns on them like he did Fox News.
We’ll stop being ‘grouchy’ when the press stops using its influence and power to help install rank amateurs as President that have no business being President.
You are mellowing. Yeah, as long as they aren't grouchy when AP goes out of business, I won't be.
Im not grouchy... I’m full of rage, hate and have blood in my eye.
Other than that, I’m in a good mood.
Americans to AP, catch up with the train!
Obama hates employed people.
Comrade Liz from the All Propaganda outlet peddling another phony poll from a far left German PR firm .
AP seems to be searching farther and farther to the East to find the best far left propaganda polling group to help peddling the Obama talking points .
LIZ Sodita has always been a very dedicated Democrat with a press pass.
I think it time a weathy GOPer buy AP and just shut it down. Its a very dangerous Dem party propaganda outlet !
Grouchy, bitter, clinging to my guns and religion?
Someone better watch out, they are getting on
the fightin side of me.
Rush pointed out this paragraph in the AP article at the start of his show today:
People were gloomier about the direction of the country than in October. They disapproved of Obamas handling of the economy a bit more than before. And, perhaps most striking for the commander in chief, more people have lost confidence in Obama on Iraq and Afghanistan over the last month. Overall, theres a malaise about the state of the nation.
Sorry socialists, that propaganda doesn't fly here...
Lets the see the breakdown of how many dems they sampled vs Republicans...Rasmussen has Zero at 46-48% steady for the last few months.
The new sandwich spread of the poor. Goes well with cheese and chicken salad.
Thanks for the ping!
Americans to AP....
Mind your own business.
FU AP, I’m far past grouchy. As a matter of fact I find that I clean my weapons 4/5 times per week, and laugh out loud at times.;-}
I wonder if AP or the drive bys think that is normal?
His approval is twice what Bush’s was despite things being demonstrably worse now. Shows what media propaganda can do. Damn scary.
No, I was grouchy last November. More recently I have been apoplectic.
American Pravda speaks. They must’ve gotten a new fax from the DNC.
I hate the stuff, except when I need to make some chicken salad.
Oh yes, 54% approval. One more sign this nation is going down the drain. That is the reason I am grouchy! Hate to be pessimistic but we must also be realistic.
I’m not grouchy, on the contrary, contentment has been the rule of the day for some time now.
The conservative uprising nears and then we and our children will be free of the yoke of demo-marxism for many generations.
Life is good.
Grouchy? I wish I was just grouchy. Try incredibly pissed off.
Seems we’re not being the grateful peons and peasants the Oligarchy thinks we oughta be....
I call BS on that poll. Check their sampling data, if they have any. An honest poll would be much less favorable, I suspect.
I’m getting fed up with the Commies pulling statistics out of their rectums and calling them gold. Or is it just me that doubts whether ANYONE was polled?
They’ve got us confused with Obama “Groucho” Marxist
Americans are grouchy because:
Bummer “is trying to revive the struggling economy, considering sending more troops to the 8-year-old Afghanistan war, muscling a health care reform overhaul through Congress and hoping to push through other ambitious measures like legislation focused on climate change.”
We KNOW it will be done wrong or made worse.
I simply no longer believe these polls of Obama’s popularity. There is no way 60% of the people could dislike his policies and 54% like him. None of this makes any sense. I’m sure they will be “seasonally” adjusted next November.
The prospect of tyranny makes me grouchy. I’m funny that way.
RE: “Im not grouchy... Im full of rage, hate and have blood in my eye.
Other than that, Im in a good mood.”
Hey, that makes two of us!!!
What’s realistic about being pessimistic?
the AP is afraid of the Carter Era MISERY INDEX returning.
The OBAMA MISERY INDEX is very high.
Americans to AP : Stop being incompetent
Dear AP: Stop being in existence.
We are grouchy because we have to see liberal women every day.
Obama: “ I won the election.”
1) He has acted to socialize the economy, thereby reassuring slow/no recovery ( Tough duty?)
2)He has been considering for four months about sending troops to Afghanistan, purposefully creating a war of attrition much the same as Vietnam.( Tough duty?)
3)Muscling a Demographic Warfare bill under the disguise of a Helath Care bill through propagandaic assault on the American public, much of which is unconstitutional.( Tough duty?)
4) Push through ambitious programs which will have a retrograde effect on industry and the taxpayers , as well as ant possibility of a free economy, pushing any economic recovery back further. ( Tough duty)
None of this is the hope and change those who voted for Obama were promised, and even the so called 54% of support comes by in large from those who have a shallow understnding of the issues and listen only to propaganda.
Look at the verbs used by Morrissey in the above quote, they indicate a jingoistic set of talking points, not journalism:
1) Revive ( a lie, none of his policies would revive the most robust dying corpse)
2) Considering ( a lie, 4 months of considering after invoking hazardous Rules of Engagement , resulting in the increased death rate of our soldiers needlessly. This is not considering, its obfuscation bordering on treason.)
3) Muscling ( true, never has our legislative process been less democratic.)
4) Push through ( true, never has our executiive process been subkect to unilateral executive orders designed to destroy the current infrastructure of our political, economic and social systems. Immigration is a case in point, censorship of the press another,and spinning human genocide at Fort Hood yet another)
Revive, Consider, muscle and push through.(Obama doesn't give a fiddlers f—k what the harangued citizenry desperately need or want, its all about neo-socialist ideology.)
Relish 50% Obama. It won't last much longer.
You won the election. Stop your whining and start doing things that will genuinely fix our problems, do so from the center.Otherwise you are done, a lame duck with no nest, reviled by America.
