So much for his Oval Office speech bump. He’s either given up on re-election, or he’s rigging it.

Hussein is about to sink under 40% approval. I can hardly wait for President Palin.

The country, including liberals, has finally seen him as the fraud he is....birth certificate or not.

It would be a welcome event to see him frog-marched out of the Whitehouse by the United States Marines.

If he's -%99 he's still weilding the trained determined damaging mindset. He is one term. The damage will last for decades.

Speaking of Palin.....

I see Bristol is going to dance with the stars. Honestly, I wish that girl would stay home and raise her son. She is going to be her mother’s downfall. I can’t help but wonder if she’s doing this intentionally for some reason. Bristol really isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.

BAD NEWS FOR BARACK
Tune: "Limbo Rock" Original MIDI

Every lib'ral boy and girl
All the folks in Limbaugh World
Both sides bashing on Barack
All find something they can mock
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

He'll go lower now
He'll go lower now
How low can he go

First he spread the wealth around
Then he bowed down to the ground
Spend a trillion, make it three
Spend it like it grows on trees
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Though he started out on top
Every time the numbers drop
There's a ratings trend that shows
He will fall to record lows
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

Don't move that phone book far
He needs a polling czar
How low can he go

I’d like to see a chart of his television face time compared with his daily ratings. It seems that the more people have to listen to him lecturing the public about how he knows what’s best for them, the lower his rating goes. Americans will tolerate a lot, but being lied to and continually having someone arrogantly talking down to them is something that sets them off in the worst way. For those of us that are working our asses off every day to stay ahead of the game, having a pompous jackass like Obama tell us that WE are the problem and that he and more government is the solution, only infuriates us more.

Michelle’s trip to Spain $ 1.2 Million dollars.

The price of Michelle’s size 17 shoes $500.

The price of Hillary’s three pant suits $300.

The price of Obama’s redecorating the Oval office including new prayer rug. $300,000

The Price of Pelosi and Reid getting their BUTS kicked out of office in two months: PRICELESS!

From the article:

Just 29% now say the U.S. is generally heading in the right direction but the president’s Job Approval remains stable. A Month-by-Month review of his numbers shows President Obama earning a 46% or 47% Job Approval rating every month for nine consecutive months. Despite the stunning upset in a Massachusetts Senate race, the passage of a health care law, the Gulf Oil Spill, economic concerns and other issues, attitudes about the president have remained broadly unchanged.

The same cannot be said, however, for the president’s political party. The number of people who identify themselves as Democrats has fallen by seven percentage points since Obama took office. Currently, 35.0% say they’re Democrats and 33.8% identify with the GOP. That gap between the parties is the smallest measured in five years. In the summer of 2008, the Democrats enjoyed a double-digit advantage.

A new book by Scott Rasmussen and Doug Schoen addresses the broader discontent roiling the political landscape this year. MAD AS HELL: How the Tea Party Movement Is Fundamentally Remaking Our Two-Party System , published by Harper-Collins, will be released September 14. It can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Borders, and other outlets.

Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters say that most judges are too liberal while 18% say too conservative.

On the economic front, the Rasmussen Employment Index showed little change in August. Nineteen percent (19%) of workers say their firms are hiring while 25% report layoffs.

Ann Coulter pointed out to Laura Ingraham the other night that dancing with the stars pays their guests EXTREMELY WELL.

My guess is that Bristol Palin is trying on her own to support her daughter, since the deadbeat dad is off on a walk-about.

If so, more power to her for not demanding her parents support her.

No, it’s a very smart move.

Everyone who appears on DWTS comes away with people liking them more. Familiarity breeds comfort in TV-land. We tend to admire people who are trying to do something difficult, and if they come off looking graceful and energetic, all the better.

Sarah’s numbers will go up after this.

He won't resign. He is too arrogant, and hates this country too much. To him, he would use his remaining time in office to strike back at the ignorant electorate that deserted his brilliance.

Why are the Rasmussen threads all bring deleted!? This thread had over 50 posts: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2583161/posts

Dupe threads should be Locked, not Pulled. When FR deletes the clever posts that people spent time composing, then these posters are far less likely to ever donate to FR.

I waited for a “down day” at Rasmussen to make this observation, so people wouldn’t accuse me of just hating on Rasmussen because I didn’t like their poll results:

What the **** is up with RasmussenReports? For the several months now, they’ve swung between giving Obama the lowest poll ratings and the highest poll ratings. Just two days ago, he polled at 48%, which would represent an amazing turnaround, and now he’s back down to 42% in just two days (in a survey with a three-day trailing average?) Sure, with MOE of 3%, if you take enough polls, you’re bound to see a couple outlier days, but this up and down up and down up and down up and down has been happening for months... from the same pollster who used to have suspiciously little (almost zero) day-to-day variations.

The Abyss is when your strongly disapprove exceeds you total approval. In other words, the number of people that hate your guts exceeds the number that can tolerate you.

In this case, strongly disapprove is 45% and total approve is 42% giving Zero a -3 Abyss rating.

The political voter is volatile right now, that's what you're seeing. More volatile than I can ever remember.

For instance, I exported the data at the Rasmussen link to MS Excel and charted out the tracking back to May 2010. There's a huge approval spike right on 08/07/2010 that I couldn't account for until I Googled what happened on that date.

Elena Kagan was confirmed to the US Supreme Court that day, and by the 11th of August the President's approval had fallen off a cliff after enough polling data came in from people finally reading the news about her.

You're going to see continued variation, but the trend is undoubtedly driving down. Obama can't and won't find a magic fix here. His best attempts at driving up the approval ratings last for a day at most, but he's out of gas. He's in glide mode right now. He can pull back on the controls and point the nose upwards for a brief moment, but the plane is falling to Earth.

Real Clear Politics has this:

Nevada Senate – Angle vs. Reid

Rasmussen Reports 9/1 – 9/1 750 LV 50 47 Reid +3

LVRJ/Mason-Dixon 8/23 – 8/25 625 LV 45 44 Reid +1

Rasmussen Reports 8/16 – 8/16 750 LV 48 50 Angle +2

LVRJ/Mason-Dixon 8/9 – 8/11 625 LV 46 44 Reid +2

But Rasmussen Reports has this:

Nevada Survey of 750 Likely Voters

September 1, 2010

Election 2010: Nevada Senate

Sharron Angle (R)
45%

Harry Reid (D)
45%

Some other candidate
5%

Not sure
6%

(RCP needs to fix!)
