A new CNN/ORC International poll found President Obama´s overall approval rating has ticked up to 51 percent but ratings have fallen on his handling of the key issues on his agenda: immigration, guns, and the deficit. On immigration, 44 percent approve of the way he is handling the issue, down from 51 percent in January. At the same time, disapproval has jumped to 50 percent, up from 43 percent in January. On guns, 45 percent approve and 52 percent disapprove, the poll found. In January, 46 percent approved and 49 percent dispproved. And on the deficit, 38 percent approve

On a thread down the page I opined that he is in over his head. Aka underwater. A campaigner, not a leader. I wonder if he feels the appropriate fear re his obvious incompetence to deal with his position and its enormous responsibilities?

Naah. He´ll weasel out of it. A catch in his voice, a strategic sob, a well-placed bribe, a convincing limp, sinking three straight jump shots. They voted him in twice. He´ll be back on top, sneering and gloating.

Shave another 15 to 20 points from the percentages and that would be a more concise picture of his activities.

What does the 51% Obama approval rating say about the character of what the American people have become: disability-fakers, moochers, racists, life-style dysfunctional, gaming-obsessed, sports obsessed, looters, deviants, sex-obsessed, phone-obsessed, self-esteem-obsessed, the list goes on ... That 51%? : the "Ingratest Generation".

Limbaugh theory,people simply don´t associate the country´s failures with Obama personally.The country´s problems are some for of an act of God which Obama has no control over. You have to have a pretty good grasp of the inner workings of Obama to know why he´s failing and none of that knowledge is available in the MSM.
We sit here and scoff at Obama´s vacations and golf but these are the type things he does to earn the admiration of the lofos who think all this stuff is cool..
The reason is the school system hasn´t taught them what the decency of the office stands for.There´s no historical reference to compare Obama to.

I spent 6 years working in south Chicago, in the projects (3 years longer than our President) and I can tell you this is exactly the way the system works. Lots of talk, lots of organizational meetings, lots of social activities to raise awareness, lots of fund raising, no action, I returned to Texas to warm up and clear my head. Oh, my pension fund from the organization I w orked for was stripped clean and now is run by the government! Sound familiar?

Polls are the vehicle of choice used by this regime to form public opinion, not to report public opinion. The progressives will use every means they have to protect Obama and poll manipulation is very effective.

Like the unemployment numbers this is a farce.
By 2014 blacks will be the only ones polled to keep his numbers high. The gays will even walk away from him.

All his airplane rides on AFI to Hollywood and Connecticut won´t be able to raise his numbers. Obama better start leading and quit photo opting and speechifying or he´ll keep falling like a rock.

So his approval rating goes UP, while individual components (e.g., Guns, taxes) go down??? ! The data really do support the Limbaugh theorem--- [perceived} likeability has an oversized impact on job approval. This is not new. George W. Bush, early on his term, benefited from the same phenomenon. W. was perceived as likeable-- the kind of guy you could have a beer with--but his policies were mostly underwater. He got a boost on all dimensions after 9/11 and early on in Iraq, but when he was perceived as lying about WMD, his likeability plummetted, and no matter what he did (successful surge) his policies were hated by everyone but the neocons. He was well on his way to the low 30´s even before the fiscal crisis hit. Someday Obama´s likeability will tank, and so will his job approval. Count on it.

#13 has it pretty well pegged. Obama is in permanent Community Organizer mode. He´s continually fighting the "establishment" on behalf of the aggrieved. Pick your group. Virtually everyone except white Conservatives. In this episode our caped crusader is fighting to bring justice to the Sandy Hook victims´ families and the huddled immigrants. Of course he´s not sincere but this is why he´s never blamed for the nation´s ills. He´s too busy organizing, partying and playing to have time to govern.

I find it interesting that no matter what he does or doesn´t do, his poll numbers never dip lower than about 47%. As soon as they do get down that far, they magically pop right back up to 51%. Fascinating, isn´t it?

I have so much to say, but I have to make short - comments and such.
We need to make ourselves aware that we are against new world state monopoly capitalism. Of course, big honchos, like buffet, gates, zuckerberg (I type those names with utter disgust) want to be REAL capitalists, but because they can´t, they agree with the role of directors of the (almost) state businesses.
The politicians, being sick sadists, rule the country and have "capitalists" in their pockets. And it seems that "little people" are fine with that. Because there is no real political opposition do we expect any changes?
Dems (former combination of fascists and commies) have control over media, education, banks, and many industries because of state monopoly model and where are the repubics? Nowhere!

In modern times we no longer have a government run by thoughtful people. All politics are now run by the latest poll. And as we here all know. any and all polls can easily be construed to show just what the pollster wants to show. I personally don´t believe in ANY poll. For any question that can be asked, there are probable several ways to answer it. Unlike a math problem, there is no exact answer. just someone´s "feelings" at any given moment it time.

B)A demented idiot "Stand up Chuck!" VP who rarely knows where he is and lies all the time?
C)A populace where 51% are ignorant low information text-crazed morons into the talk shows, the dancing shows, the late-night crap, and who believe all the lies and blame whitey?
D)A press full of liars, lefties, deviants, lap dogs, and rump swabs who adore ther messiah and his knucklehead sidekick?

What do you do? Any answers? I know what I´d like to do, but to say it here in this fine salon would surely get me crucified!

In a corrupt Nation, polls are determined by whoever takes them and elections are determined by whoever counts the votes or hacks the machines.

We don´t even have anybody willing to fight back. Our elected Republicans Representatives, for the most part, just want to get along and keep whatever little bit of power the Dems let them have. It´s pathetic.

One more thought: A long time ago somebody said, and I can´t remember who, "The more corrupt a Nation, the more numerous the laws." By that measure, we are in deep dodo.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
