Obama Approval Falls to 50
Percent in Home State,
Collapses in Ohio

National Review Online, by John Fund

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/27/2013 10:41:03 PM

In the wake of the Obamacare fiasco, President Obama’s poll numbers are collapsing in two industrial Midwestern states — the quintessential swing state of Ohio and his home state of Illinois. In Illinois, the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Obama’s approval rating falling to just 50–46 positive in a state he carried by 17 points just a year ago. His biggest drops in support came among women voters (only 50 percent positive) and Hispanics (only 51 percent positive). Without his overwhelming support among African-Americans (92 percent), his approval rating would easily be in the low 40s. The liberal website

If it were not for Cook County, Obama actually loses to Romney in Illinois in 2012. The fine people downstate figured it out long ago. Will the LoFo´s in Chicago? I doubt it.

Men are pretty much black and white thinkers when it comes to elections,that´s why the left ignores them in their groovy grab bags of government handouts.Women take a lot more things into consideration and are probably more compassionate than men.

Like it or not the left´s fabrication of republicans war on women worked well enough to get Obama reelected along with demonizing Romney´s´s wealth which fits into their stereotypes of white republicans.Of course it´s always the left´s job to make things fair.They never consider reverse fairness such as people getting their healthcare cancelled because of an over reaching government.

I learned with George H W Bush´s "read my lips" that my non political female friends took lying about policy a lot more personal than my male friends. Also, I suspect women also make the distinction between lying to save face/avoid hurting someone and lying to acquire or retain power. They are more likely to forgive the former than the later.

Yet I have a well educated lawyer friend who is having a hard time of it in Chicago, and she cut off all contact with me (no loss under the circumstances) when I dared to merely say "these are tough times for everyone with Obamacare and the economy right now." She and others like her will go down with the ship, not even THINKING of actually looking, with an open mind, at the disaster that is befalling us all. When you ask , with total astonishment, who the people are who still stand by Obama, she is right up there with flags waving. And frankly I can´t forgive she and others like her who unthinkingly put us in these terrible circumstances.

Despite what you have heard, for the most part, Ohio is a conservative minded state. As most states go, the urban areas and college towns are hot beds of liberal ideology. What has changed is that people who were not interested in politics are paying attention thanks to the squeeze Obama´s policies have put on them and I believe they will let their voices be heard in 2014. Folks will not forget the misery Obamacare has brought into their lives. Don´t get me wrong, the democras will try to lie, cheat and steal their way to another win. Conservatives need a presence and it must be clearly articulated. All is not lost but all is not won. This is the time to roll up our sleeves and get busy. Establishment Republicans need to stop the war on conservatism. It is the way out of the darkness. The people see ER´s as part of the problem.

True, #10, but it seems the biggest problem for many in Ohio is that they drive by ´brownfields´ where huge GM and feeder plants stood and their minds apparently substitute images from 40 years ago for what they are actually seeing now.

Union types and non-union types alike still believe that ´Democrats are for the workin´ man´ despite the ruination that Democrats and unions (possibly redundant) have visited upon industry in general. These are people who, when confronted with competition with Japanese efficiency, regularly went on strike to demand less work with more pay. Madness. Like the current generation of dole scroungers, they have a quasi-religious belief that the money will always come from someone, somewhere.

Yes, reply 12. Approval ratings are meaningless, especially to democrats as long as they can so easily steal elections. If you have any doubt about the effectiveness of democrat fraud, consider all the instances in last 6 elections --- 2002-2012 where a Republican held a slight lead on election night who lost out in an extended vote count. Then name one time where a democrat who led on election night lost after "all the votes were counted."

Since the dhims steal elections with such skill, ease and impunity, they need no other political skills. Which is good, since they possess only have a few others: the confidence of a burglar, breathtaking lies, complete absence of honor, integrity, honesty, or genuine compassion. They always win the same way: they cheat shamelessly. One cannot beat a cheater in a fair fight.

He´s still could win another election. He always gets 200% of the registered votes in Black and Blue states. If Red states would all pass voter verification laws, that would go a long way in straightening out elections. Voters in Blue states could then sue to force companion laws in their states.

What democrats and labor unions have yet to grasp is that you cant be both "pro-labor" and anti-business. Without the businesses manufacturing products and providing services, union workers don´t have jobs.

Republicans always talk about being pro-business without taking into consideration the employees.

Republicans need to EXPLAIN why a prosperous private sector enhances labor. While it might be self evident to thinking people, the lo-fo´s do not understand.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

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

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

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

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

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital.
