Poll shows Obama, Dems losing ground
Washington Times ^ | March 8, 2010 | Joseph Curl

Posted on 03/08/2010 4:08:52 PM PST by SmartInsight

The Democracy Corps-Third Way survey released Monday finds that by a 10-point margin -- 51 percent to 41 percent -- Americans think the standing of the U.S. dropped during the first 13 months of Mr. Obama's presidency.

On the national security front, a massive gap has emerged, with 50 percent of likely voters saying Republicans would likely do a better job than Democrats, a 14-point swing since May. Thirty-three percent favored Democrats.

"The erosion since May is especially strong among women, and among independents, who now favor Republicans on this question by a 56 to 20 percent margin," the pollsters said in their findings.

When you sell your presidential campaign on a ‘Hope and Change’ platform and then do not deliver.....that “Hope and Change” transition to those who wish for real “hope and change” via your removal.

at bottom of article:

"Democracy Corps calls itself an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to making the government of the United States more responsive to the American people." It was founded in 1999 by former Clinton adviser James Carville and Stanley Greenberg, a leading Democratic pollster. ,

Third Way calls itself "the leading moderate think-tank of the progressive movement"

He was never qualified for the job in the first place (did affirmative action have anything to do with this?) and, unlike most people, isn't learning on the job.

2+ years to go with this imposter may be too much. If he stepped down, I could find ten replacements who would out-perform him in two days, with one phone book.

He...isn't learning on the job.,

He is doing exactly what he was trained/mentored for for his entire life.

He's having a hard time getting the Socialist agenda through and is getting frantic about it - BUT

While we're all watching his right hand, his left hand is slipping in his REAL agenda - right under our noses.

Obama’s birth credentials legitimately call into question his constitutional right to be President. When will he be proven to be foreign born or not in a court of law? I believe

Obama is an imposter

who should either cooperate with the investigation of his actual birth and/or be removed.

Let’s take the House and Senate in November and impeach the imposter. Nothing else will get rid of the SOB. The corruption runs too deep.

It is looking pretty dismal for the Dems, doesn’t it? But they have nobody to blame but themselves. All their actions demonstrate that they cannot be trusted to defend the US.

Thanks for the transcript to the Cairo speech; excerpt:

And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.

Ok, he goes on to say (and I haven't read the whole thing) that there are 1200 mosques in the US, one in every state. The 'bowing and scraping' to Islam suggest a couple of things to me: his muslim heritage demands it of him, or, the oil they sit on may be negotiable- as far as how it's to be 'consumed'.

Well, he being a dummy liberal, it's probably a little of both where he hopes he can work with his fellow towelheads in ringing in a new era of 'understanding' amongst the East and West where, were it not for him, the twain would otherwise never meet. And, he'll be able to build a bridge to help them leapfrog into the New Age where their contributions to society won't come off quite so Neanderthalic.

Trouble is, with every stupid New Ager Liberal, Hope doesn't get it done. The problem in the Middle East is Arabs stuck on stupid, stuck on themselves and stuck in the past. Four years of Obama trying to re-build a relationship with them will bear as much fruit as a thousand years of kicking sand in their faces- they ain't changin'. They've got the gospel, they've got Allah, and they can beat their women. What you got?

Thanks again for the links, I'll have to revisit them so I can get my vomit on.

About 55% of the people in this country got snookered pretty easily. More worrisome is the fact that many of them are young voters who will be voting for a very long time. The people with better sense are starting to die off.

“”While public polling showed that initial approval of Obama’s response was above 50 percent, two months of Republican criticism have taken a toll. “

Note: Republican’s fault. Not Obama’s... no... it wasn’t that he acted like it was no big deal and tried to make people believe ‘the system worked’ when clearly it didn’t. No, it’s the Republican’s fault for criticism. Uhhhh yep.

What do you call a democrat who's been mugged? A republican!

Most of the youth (young voters) inthis country are in the process of being mugged right now. They've found that the scrap of paper they've spent 4 years working for is useless as to getting a job because the democrats have destroyed the economy. They wake up daily to new reports of moslem aggression.

Some of them (not all but maybe most) will realize that the rats have caused all this trouble. Americans are naturally conservative. Our ideals of freedom and personal responsiblity and reward for work insure that. We are a nation that believes that "you can do anything you set your mind to" and our children are now finding that the rats have been blocking them from achieving their dreams.

Obama’s TSA pick: Hire on ‘ethnic diversity’
Robert Harding says placing minorities at top should be ‘requirement’

Posted: March 08, 2010
1:05 pm Eastern

By Aaron Klein
WorldNetDaily

President Obama’s pick to head the Transportation Security Administration long has pushed for “ethnic diversity” as a determining factor in hiring new teams for U.S. military and intelligence agencies, WND has learned.

The president announced today his nominee for TSA chief, retired Gen. Robert Harding.

Harding served in the Army for 33 years until he retired in 2001 and went into business as a private security contractor. He previously served as the Defense Department’s top human intelligence officer and managed a $1 billion intelligence collection program. Between 2003 and 2009, Harding was a government consultant on human intelligence and counterintelligence issues.

He has lobbied for “ethnic diversity” in the U.S. defense establishment.

WND found that in 2003, Harding submitted written testimony to a Senate subcommittee hearing on intelligence issues pushing for more diversity at security agencies, going so far as to call diversity a “requirement.” ..excerpt

You’re more optimistic than I am about our youth. Everywhere I look, I see white trash, black trash and all manner of mixed trash who can’t add two double-digit numbers or write a simple sentence that is complete, correctly punctuated and has no spelling errors. Some of them utter what passes for speech in their neighborhoods that is mostly unintelligible. There are way too many who don’t look, act or live like trash who cannot find their states on a map and have no idea what “congress” means, where it is, or what it does, nor do they know who the first president was and can’t name the governor of their state.

I am an eternal optimist. But then, being a Christian, I know that things will work together for my good. Truthfully I expect us Christians to get airlifted out of here within the next few years before it really gets bad. But then I always hope that the world will have another chance to get it right.
