    (HOPE AND CHANGE HIGHLIGHTS) Tonight, more Americans are out of work and more are working harder for less. More of you have lost your homes and more are watching your home values plummet. More of you have cars you can't afford to drive, credit card bills you can't afford to pay and tuition that is beyond your reach. These challenges are not all of government's making. But the failure to respond is a direct result of a broken politics in Washington and the failed presidency of George W. Bush. America, we are better than these last eight years. We are...

    Thanks to a slew of gaffes, blunders, miscalculations and alarming personality revelations, Obama has become a surprising liability where our reputation abroad is concerned - surprising not only because he was elected, in part, to restore our supposedly damaged image overseas, but also because he was touted as a smooth and charming diplomat. But whatever generosities we afforded the inexperienced junior senator from Illinois, smooth and charming he is not, it turns out. And these rookie mistakes are getting downright embarrassing. The latest came last week, when the President sent the G-20 a pointed but pleading letter imploring Europe to...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | January 30, 2010 | by Scott Rasmussen
    Highlights: *The president in the speech declared that his administration has cut taxes for 95% of Americans. He even chided Republicans for not applauding on that point. However, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that taxes have been cut for 95% of Americans. Most (53%) say it has not happened, and 26% are not sure. Other polling shows that nearly half the nation’s voters expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years. *The president also asserted that “after two years of recession, the economy is growing again.” Just 35% of voters believe that statement is true, while...
  • A week in the eyes of a Demoralized Liberal, to know it is all over

    Waking up a Year Later with Everything turned Upside down. You almost have to feel sorry for the liberals. A year ago Obama had a 60% approval rating, Democrats were trusted more than Republicans on almost all issues and they had a huge democrat majority in congress. Yet now they must wake up each morning knowing it's all been lost, and wondering how it happened. To most liberals it all went bad this past week. They were sure that Martha Coakley would pull it out in the Massachusetts Senate race over Scott Brown. They were sure that some sort of...

    It’s over folks. Not just the Massachusetts Senate election but any Democrat health care reform bill. Democrat’s chances of passing a health care reform bill that looks like anything like we have seen is about zero. The rest of the battle against Democrats till the November election is downhill from here. If you had been watching MSNBC the past few days you could see the democrat party and Obama White House preparing for this humiliating loss. Story after story was about Martha Coakley's coming defeat and about how she screwed up. Last night Chris Matthews did a 2 hour special...

    BOSTON — There may be no better place to measure the shifting fortunes of President Obama and the Democratic Party than in the race being fought here this weekend for the Senate seat that had been held by Edward M. Kennedy. When Mr. Obama was inaugurated one year ago this week, he and his party had big majorities in the Senate and House, enjoyed the backing of much of the country and were confidently preparing to enact an ambitious legislative agenda. Republicans seemed directionless and the conservative movement exhausted. This weekend, Democrats are struggling to hang on to a seat...
  • Obama Approval Rating Dips to New Low (CBS NEWS: Obama Down to 46%, Not Rasmussen, CBS NEWS)

    CBS News ^ | Monday, January 11, 2010 | Kevin Hetchkopf
    President Obama's job approval rating has fallen to 46 percent, according to a new CBS News poll. That rating is Mr. Obama's lowest yet in CBS News polling, and the poll marks the first time his approval rating has fallen below the 50 percent mark. Forty-one percent now say they disapprove of Mr. Obama's performance as president. In last month's CBS News poll, 50 percent of Americans approved of how the president was handling his job, while thirty-nine percent disapproved. Mr. Obama still receives strong support from Democrats (eight in ten approve of his performance), but his approval rating among...

    Something odd is happening to the permanent progressive majority that the U.S. was supposed to have elected 14 months ago: Its Members are announcing plans to leave Congress even before the voters get a chance to pass judgment on their liberal governance. "This is my moment to step aside," Christopher Dodd said yesterday in front of the East Haddam, Connecticut home that he once financed with the help of Countrywide Financial. The 65-year-old, five-term Senator said his decision not to seek re-election was his own, but there's little doubt he was heading toward a well-earned defeat this fall amid personal...

And that means if necessary addressing John McCain should he be elected president. But none of this can happen if Obama wins. Let me explain something to you if Obama wins and they retain a large majority in the Senate and the house and perhaps a veto proof majority, you are going to effectively have a government by Oligarchy. You will have the courts,...
  • Can Progressive-Liberals admit that Obama lied to them? (to Joe Wilson too?)

    12/28/2009 8:45:12 AM PST · by sickoflibs · 17 replies · 807+ views
    When Obama promised us that there would be no middle class tax increases the progressive-liberals thought: "This is great. Our Obama can get the voters to believe anything". When Obama said that Abortion and Illegals would not be covered under 'Obama-HealthCare-Reform', Libs thought: "Finally we have a progressive leader that will sign into law what we want while convincing the stupid voters that Democrats are passing what they want". Even now Obama is claiming the Obama-care will reduce the deficit based on phony use of CBO numbers. When Joe Wilson called Obama a liar during a Presidential address, Libs said:...
  • Genius Envy: Ed Schultz Repudiates Ed Schultz (Says Mandatory Insurance Violates "Liberty"!)

    In a remarkable moment in last night's edition of The Ed Show on MSNBC, Ed Schultz got carried away and made a small government case against mandatory health care insurance. Perhaps channeling his former line of work as a Rush Limbaugh impersonator on the Right, Schultz said: The bill makes the insurance mandatory for all Americans. This mandate is one of the most unAmerican things, I think, the Senate has ever done. This isn't the same thing as mandating for car insurance or home owners insurance. I mean, there's nothing more personal than your body...Forcing people, by the way,...

    Angry, frustrated, troubled, disappointed, disgust, disrespect - words not normally associated with holiday season. However, they were words Katie Couric used to describe where she sees the mood of country right now. Couric, the anchor of the "CBS Evening News," in a live Facebook video chat on Dec. 22, took on illustrating her view of the populace - a not very sunny picture (emphasis added). "I think more distant - I hate to say that, but I think, I think the economic situation in this country, I think, when people are struggling, that sometimes they need a place to vent...

    Politico ^ | December 17, 2009 12:44 PM EST | Mike Allen
    In a stunning reversal of fortune for President Barack Obama, top progressives are attacking the health-reform plan moving through the Senate as “hollow,” “unsupportable” and a sellout to corporate interests. Republicans, after plotting for months to sink the signature legislation of Obama’s first year, suddenly think that Democrats might wind up doing it for them. Most dangerously for White House chances of assembling 60 Senate votes, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean launched a third day of attacks on the emerging bill, arguing in a Washington Post op-ed that it meets none of his benchmarks for “real reform.” “[A]s it stands,...

    You know I can tolerate Democrats turning on each other. But I have to draw the line on Obama bashing. He is "the One"! Remember the days in the Spring when Obama's popularity was going to get everything he wanted passed? What happened to that DU line "It will take eight years to clean up this mess" ? Liberals turning on him in less than 11 months. Does this mean the campaign is over? Hope and Change over yet? If he loses democrats, who is left? (Not me!) Checkout the goldmine of complaining I found at DU, Examples at blog...

    As the Senate sprints to pass a health-care bill by Christmas, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that those believing President Obama's health-reform plan is a good idea has sunk to its lowest level. Just 32 percent say it's a good idea, versus 47 percent who say it's a bad idea. In addition, for the first time in the survey, a plurality prefers the status quo to reform. By a 44-41 percent margin, respondents say it would be better to keep the current system than to pass Obama's health plan.

    On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show: Mark comes out passionate in his monologue as he discusses the current state that America is in. You can listen to it HERE. America is turning into a destitute welfare state before our eyes. You are watching the rise of a soft tyranny and a Congress that is out of control with its' spending. Congress does not care about your needs or your wants, only about the amount of power they can have. For the past 6 months Democrats have tried to put together any sort of bill they can and pass it regardless if...

    As a panelist on Fox News Sunday, Liz Cheney, a potential bright future star of the conservative movement, declared that the job Senate republicans have been doing to derail ObamaCare was "masterful." I agree. I realize there are some conservatives out there who are disappointed that our GOP Senators aren't initiating legislative Armageddon to stop this latest Obamination. They don't want the Senate GOP to be the "party of no" they want the GOP to be the party of HELL NO! I have a great deal of sympathy with that point of view and did have the chance to express...

    Voice Of America ^ | 12/12/09 | Nico Colombant
    Hundreds of protesters have gathered near the White House to try and start a new anti-war movement. Saturday's demonstration closely follows President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize speech, in which he said war is sometimes needed to establish lasting peace. Demonstrators in Washington opposed this view, as well as the president's request for 30,000 more U.S. troops in Afghanistan. "Make it personal, make it personal, because killing is personal. It's immoral. It's personal," chanted protesters. Former Democratic Alaska Senator and 2008 presidential candidate Mike Gravel led protesters in anti-war chants, while calling for a mass movement to help end U.S. wars...

    The US Report ^ | 9 December 2009 | Chris Carter
    A common theme has resonated from pollsters in 2009: 'Obama's approval ratings hit new low.' Gallup's latest poll puts President Obama's approval at 47%, the lowest-ever for a U.S. president in his first year in office. Now that President Barack Obama's first year in office is almost over, a glance at other presidents' approval ratings confirms that Obama's 47% approval rating marks the lowest for a president in his first year. A look at past presidents shows that he could also set the lowest average approval rating. According to Gallup , Obama's first-year average approval is 50%. Only Ronald Reagan...

    With President Barack Obama's decision to escalate the war in Afghanistan by sending 30,000 additional troops to battle Al-Qaeda and the Taliban, he has put his imprint on the war on terror, and at the same time, given up the Democrats' most famous fallback position: blame George W. Bush. Couple that with the economy and we are seeing the end of the president's first year in office coincide with him having to accept the full responsibility for the condition of the country. Obama rode into office on the "blame Bush" tidal wave as the nation sickened of everything he touched....
