Obamas in trouble. Whether its the economy or the oil spill or the Ground Zero Caring Sharing Togetherness Mosque or whatever else thats gone wrong for him, his approval ratings are drooping like a 49-year-old mans pecs. More and more Americans are wondering why they voted for this guy. More and more Americans are getting fed up with the way things are going. More and more Americans are flipping their calendars to November 2010 and 2012 and marking the dates. Youll never guess whose fault that is!
New York Times:
In Defining Obama, Misperceptions Stick
Americans need only stand in line at the grocery checkout counter to glimpse the conspiracy theories percolating about President Obama. Birthplace Cover-Up, screams the current issue of the racy tabloid Globe. Obamas Secret Life Exposed!
The article claims, without proof, that Mr. Obama uses a phony Social Security number as part of an elaborate scheme to conceal that he is not a natural-born U.S. citizen
Have any other U.S. presidents ever appeared in tabloids? Did the New York Times do stories about it when those presidents approval ratings fell? The NYT then cites a poll saying that 18 percent of Americans think Obamas a Muslim. Which is ridiculous, because we all know he spent 20 years in a church where he didnt hear a single thing the preacher said.
Personally, I dont think Obama has any real religious beliefs at all, because that would entail believing in a power higher than himself. But some people think he does, and apparently that explains why his popularity is fading. Although if thats the case, it doesnt explain how he got elected in the first place. But these are questions for people who arent as smart as the staff of the New York Times.
Heres the lede of WaPos take on the You Are Too Dumb to Appreciate Obama story:
The number of Americans who believe wrongly that President Obama is a Muslim has increased significantly since his inauguration and now account for nearly 20 percent of the nations population.
The key there is the wrongly. Gotta set it apart with em dashes, even! You can almost taste the indignation. Im surprised they didnt use bold, italics, and all caps as well. WRONGLY!!
I dont blame the news industry for trying to protect their considerable emotional investment in Obama. I understand their pain, their frustration with the common folk and their rustic notions.
The question is how is it supposed to sell newspapers? P.S. Matt Welch: Wait, the Economy Is Lousy and Obama Is Unpopular? How Could That Ever Be?
P.P.S. Chuck Todd: The big irony of this story: President Obama is more religious than Reagan or H.W. Bush ever was; in fact, he gets Bible verses sent to his blackberry EVERY DAY. Excellent point. Ill bet those two didnt even HAVE Blackberries!
MSM: “America Too Stupid To Believe Our Lies”
We at FR scoff at headlines that appear on scandal sheets like “The Globe” and “The Enquirer”. The big exception I find to this are those waiting in line to buy groceries (often with their Obama card). “Typical” Obama voters buy this stuff lock stock and barrel. They are also much more likely to read these publications than they are the New York Times.
As effing idiotic as this spin is to some of us, there are so many fools out there who will buy this bs hook, line and sinker. The dems prey upon the ignorant and the downright evil.
“... his approval ratings are drooping like,
(insert appropriate terms here)
Nanzi Pelosi’s tits.
Bill Clinton’s pecker.
Algore’s carbon credits.
Hillery Clinton’s hips.
Michele’s boob belt.
President Barack Obama prays daily, a White House official said Thursday,
Ok, but what direction is he facing??? And how many times does he pray each day????
Inquiring minds want to know.
Nailed it! No more callers please, we have a winner.
Proofs in the puddin’... words mean nothing ... action i.e. jobs, economy ... you can circle the wagons all you want...will not do ONE BIT OF GOOD...he is worthless...
You Are Too Dumb to Appreciate Obama
Perhaps. But at least we are not so dumb to pay good money for NYT and WaPo fish wrap.
Enjoy your columns while you can NYT and WaPo Lib writers. Umployment may not be there to support you but the endangered species act might.
Someone needs to tell ol Maggie to wipe the spit off her chin.
It's pathetic how they substitute fallible -- VERY fallible -- human beings for their gods. And not one of them has proven even remotely worthy, unless you measure their worth by the blood they've spilled.
That's not spit ...
Eli Whitney, Robert Fulton, Alva Edison, Henry Ford, Alexandria Graham Bell and a few dozen other American inventors and innovators have been more important to these United States than most of the presidents combined. Ordinary politicians ride achievers’ coat tails. Occasionally there comes a Truman, an Eisenhower or a Reagan.
Yes, lets define Obama.No misconceptions either.
About 80% of Americans are UNIFIED against this mosque.
DEHUMANIZING TRADITIONAL AMERICA, THE OBAMA GOAL
That makes no difference to the national socialist elite in power, they want to cow America with their Utopia. The former needless genocidal 9/11 sacrifice of 3800 innocent lives is trumped by minority rights. This is just the beginning if Obama and his national socialist junta is allowed to stay in power. People in general should make no mistake about it.
The dehumanization of the 9/11 victims is the goal Obama has.Once this is accomplished, the sky is the limit for this sort of thing.He means to define who is humanand who is not. And then we are to watch silently as Obamas plan to isolate and disempower middle America socially , politically and economically accelerates. Dehumanization of sectors of society is a major fascist technique. So far he has dehumanized many, including the Fort Hood shooting victims, as the sanctity of Muslims is preserved in our military over the necessity for American justice and the future protection of our military personell.
On a parallel matter, Obama is redistricting America as we speak, using the 2010 census. The defining parameters will be to cloister racial and ethnic minorites into their own Congressional constituncies. Subsequently the plan is to pit that block of racial and ethnic minority voters against the rest of America. The minority rights aspect of this mosque argument will then be applied to budgeting. Special federal programs to provide historical justice for the so called exploited will be put in place. Using fannie / freddie for affirmative action lending nearly destroyed our nation and the world economy, and now Obama wants to remake Fannie /Freddie? You can imagine the image in which he will remake these bogus institutions, even Barney Frank is bailing.
There is a very large comprehensive plan, and the mosque right now is the icon on a much larger political battle front. America is kept ignorant of this larger battle. The Obama Utopia is a cultural mosaic, not a melting pot, and he is quietly going about this redefinition of America which will now be rammed down our throats , using his executive powers, the Supreme Court, and a cowed Congress.
Obama will not unite America, he intends to divide it and conquer it, and will use force to do so if he thinks it necessary.Thats why he manifests a burgeoning Secret Service personal security plan which now freezes our municipalities as he travels about our nation.Its a message, part of his campaign to cow America into submission.
This mosque must not be built, if it is, it will likely be destroyed. As Rush Limbaugh says, can one imagine building a Shinto Temple adjacent to the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, 10 years after it happened there?
You can see the reasoning here about the overall Obama approach which he has very carefully revealed to America in fits and starts, so few will connect the dots. This is his so called transparency:
And now the T Shirts with the picture of Bush and the words “Miss me yet” selling like hot cakes and Bush at 6 points above Obama! He won’t even dare ask if we want to go back anymore.
Bill Clintons pecker
That’s pretty rare wouldn’t you say?
Stick a fork in it, it’s done.
Why do they send Bible verses to his blackberry,he cant read them,he doesnt know how to use it
