Posted on 12/21/2009 3:45:01 PM PST by freespirited
There's no point in the White House saying this, so it won't.
But an official predicted to me the other day that Obama's numbers would hit 60 after the health care bill passes, and Chuck Schumer seems to think roughly the same thing: that the public polling on the Democratic reform bill will turn around "soon."
When people see what is in this bill and when people see what it does, they will come around," Schumer said. "The reason people are negative is not the substance of the bill, but the fears that the opponents have laid out. When those fears don't materialize, and people see the good in the bill, the numbers are going to go up."
With 65% of the country agaisnt it and the far left hating if for it’s lack of socialism?
These people are totally delusional.
If the bill is that good, why is it never posted until the last minute, and voted on in the dead of night?
You and the bill can’t stand the light of day!
More like a bounce into outerspace of his negative ratings.
Wonder if Olberman is still ready to go to jail.
OK Now they have completely lost the plot.
The numbers are down because the majority do not want this and they think passing it will make their numbers go up.
What ever have they been drinking up on the hill?
Is this satire?
WE’VE BEEN QUOTING PARTS OF THE DAMN THING FOR MONTHS!
What this jackass just said is that they didnt care enough to tell people what’s in it, most of them didnt read it, but somehow socialized medicine is going to be so sweet that 60% of people will magically LIKE this?
Are these people F’ing retarded? These people are loony toons!
Let the polls show the public in the mood for an execution of 60 Senators
0bozo’s numbers will hit 60 after the abominable health care bill passes alright..60% DISapproval.
These people are totally delusional.
I’m with you, these people have been telling
the BIG lie for so long it all seems natural
Of course the bad thing for Omama is that this
won’t go into effect for two years yet and will
take another year after that to kick in.
He’ll be lucky not to be ridden out of town
on a rail covered in tar.
Has anyone actually read the bill?
Money can be paid to certain persons, who ‘develop’ algorithms to ‘poll’ ‘random’ samplings of other ‘certain persons’ that, in turn, receive a nice, little ‘extra something’ to make Christmas go well.
Polling? Who needs polls when you have the answer key?
I predict a 5pt Dead Cat Bounce than a plunge down to 23-26% when everyone realizes the people they elected flipped them the bird.
For their argument to have any merit whatsoever, wouldn’t they have been climbing over each other to read the bill?
You're wrong, they know exactly what they are doing. I dont think they believe this for a second, and dont care. They are willing to take a hit in '10 and '12 to get this passed because it's the beginning of the end.
The one thing the GOP can do to make sure this thing is repealed is make sure no one can fix this piece of dog poo.
This bill is so bad, people are going to start screaming soon.
Okay, before I read the comments, let me say right now that IF this is true I will be sooooooo depressed.
Let me say right now that I don’t think it’s true for a minute. I think Obamer’s ratings will plummet.
Interested in hearing how the rest of you think this will end.
These people believed they saved the world or something, and do not really care if they committed political suicide.
Even worse, they have political consultants who feed their delusions.
How many millions do they have to spend on ads full of lies to accomplish this?
man are they in for a shock
Yeah, sure! They'll get a real bounce out'a that.
Just quarantine Washington DC, because there is some sort of disease transmissible there which causes dilusional thought patterns. Feed em all Kool-Aid as the cure.
That means they churned this crap out to air a good month ago, before there even was a bill to base the ads or CNN fluffy news pieces on!
He also said that he talked to Elvis this weekend
Unless a media bail out is hidden in the bill. The media would simply ask: "What do you want those numbers to be?"
I just saw one on tv say the reason we hate it is we have not been “educated” enough yet. I kid you not. They are Lunatics.
They are totally insane.
He hasn’t seen it himself!
Can we start shooting now or wait till the final vote?
No problem. Nobody watches CNN. It is as bad as NPR.
Other than higher taxes and insurance premiums no one will get anything until 2014. How is that supposed to cause a bump in poll numbers for the corrupt commies?
And they will hit 20 (hard core commies) and he will be cursed like no other president in American history once people try to get care under this "plan."
And they will hit 0 when *everybody* (including the commies) sees what they're really paying to get this travesty.
He's already at 53% disapproval (hitting 55 once a few days back) according to Rasmussen, so that is not unlikely. I'd like to see how they spin it when he hits 70% disapproval.
Yeah Ben you’re so smart. Those 20-25% of Medicare Advantage patients are really gone to give 0bama high approval ratings after their insurance is gutted. So will the 20-30 somethings that have to pay a lot more for crummy coverage.
When people find out that they could go jail or pay a penalty, they are going to get those tingly feelings up their leg again (could be the real thing in jail).
Taxes are going up and all the private sector and especially small businesses can say is great!
0 is so great and all people care about is the leader and his win. We live for him now and that’s all that matters.
Yes a bill only a masochist could love. Ben, pass the cat-o-nine tails please!
I absolutely could not agree more that Obama will hit 60, as in 60% Strongly Disapprove in the daily Rasmussen tracker. He just 3 points today to 43% strongly disapprove, and I predict 50% strongly disapprove by Christmas.
I also predict that Obama couldn’t give two shits what the people of this country think about anything.
I very seriously doubt that a finished bill is available for anyone to read.
But in the age of the Internet, they are not going to be able to keep it hidden forever. Eventually, it will be published in full and at that time, thousands of people are going to be going through it line by line, word by word, letter by letter.
Think Rathergate. This is going to be a thousand times worse. Every day the Internet is going to be alive with exposes of horrific pork-filled timebombs that have been snuck into this monster by the fatcats and their friends.
The Pajamahadeen will find them all and make sure that everyone knows about them. Senators and Congressmen are going to be ducking calls and hunkering down underneath their desks because there is no way they are going to be able to defend themselves.
Yeah it’s so good that you had to put it together behind closed doors, buy off needed votes and pass it in the dead of night.
What are they smoking? The only bounce the Dems are going to get from Obamcare is being ridden out of town on a rail in front of an angry mob.
Sounds like a plan.
They have lost their minds if they think obama going to get a bounce.... unless they cheat the results of every poll.
yeah just like how everyone would looove the stimulus and unemployment would be 0%
I look for it more to hit the mid 30’s for Obama and single digits for Congress.America does not want this bill but they are doing it anyway.
Dems anticipate a health care bounce [in O’s approval rating]
Sounds like The Dems needs a psych workup.
And a neurological one (to detect/analyze dementia) would also
They’re totally dishonest. But then, crooks always are.
My two cents: ruin the Christmas of every RAT who voted for the House or Senate bills. Raise Hell if they have the nerve to come home. They ruined our Christmas; let’s return the favor.
