Some Interesting Polls that Should Cause Alarm for Obama and Democrats … Economy, National Defense both Favor Republicans


The tide is beginning to turn against Obama and the Democrats. With Obama continuing to push Obama_Socialisn_smilemore government spending, more bail out and his nationalized single payer health care system, the 2010 midterm elections may be a tidal wave for Conservatives and Republicans. Wait until he starts raising taxes.

America may have voted for change; however, they did not vote for irresponsible spending, socialism and a weak foreign policy.

The Obama bloom may be falling off the socialist rose, as this tax and spend liberal/socialist the likes this country has ever seen might be swinging the pendulum back the other direction. There is some recent polling that indicates that even though Obama maintains a high favorability rating, it might all fall in like a house of cards as there is a “Perfect Storm” of polling that says America is tired of Obama pulling the United States into socialism. The polls show weakness in both the economic and foreign policy, defending the United States. The Obama social experiment gig is up.

1. A recent Gallup Poll indicates that “Conservatives” are the Single-Largest Ideological Group. Think this is not a response to the far left direction that Obama has taken the US?

Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This represents a slight increase for conservatism in the U.S. since 2008, returning it to a level last seen in 2004.

2. A Fox News Opinion Dynamics poll released Monday showed that a majority of Americans, including Democrats say that President Barack Obama has not been tough enough on North Korea or Iran.

A FOX News poll released Monday finds more than two-thirds of Americans say Obama has not been tough enough on North Korea (69 percent), while some 15 percent think his actions have been “about right” and 3 percent think he has been too tough.

Sizable majorities of Democrats (65 percent), Republicans (78 percent) and independents (61 percent) agree Obama should be tougher on North Korea. Among those voters who backed Obama in the 2008 presidential election, 59 percent say he has not been tough enough.

3. Rasmussen Poll states that Americans now TRUST Republicans more on economic issues than Democrats. Think this is not a direct response to the bail out plans and the spending like a drunken sailor that Obama has done since in office? Think again.

Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on six out of 10 key issues, including the top issue of the economy.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% now trust the GOP more to handle economic issues, while 39% trust Democrats more.

4. Another Rasmussen Poll indicates that 53% of Americans state that Government spending hurts the economy while only 27% believe it helps.

      Let me guess…the republicans had a much much better plan on dealing with the economy…like hiding their heads in the sand….

    3. The Anti-Reagan on June 16th, 2009 1:12 pm

      The Anti-Reagan
      by Patrick J. Buchanan

      Despite his boldness, Barack Obama seems as fated to fail as were Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter. And for the same reason: a belief in his own righteousness and moral superiority, and a belief that his ideals and his persona count mightily in the modern world.

      Wilson declaimed about America’s fight to “make the world safe for democracy” when in harness with the British, French, Russian, Japanese and Italian empires, all slavering to feast on the carcasses of the Hohenzollern, Habsburg and Ottoman empires.

      By 1920, Wilson was a tragic failure, mocked by ex-allies and reviled by former enemies for having dishonored his own 14 Points.

      Jimmy Carter declared in 1977 that “we have gotten over our inordinate fear of communism that caused us to embrace any dictator who shared in that fear.” So, we undermined Nicaragua’s Anastasio Somoza and the Shah, and got the Sandinistas and the Ayatollah Khomeini.

      As for Barack, he behaves on the world stage like some Ivy League kid ashamed of the people he came from, letting one and all on campus know that he is nothing like his benighted family with its sordid history.

      In Cairo, he confessed that America had a hand in dumping over the regime in Iran in 1953. He did not mention that the United States forced the retreat of Joseph Stalin’s army from Iran in 1946.

      For the 100th time, he declared, “I have unequivocally prohibited the use of torture by the United States, and I have ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed by early next year.”

      Is Obama unaware that Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia run prisons that make Guantanamo look like The Breakers at Palm Beach?

      How many Guantanamo inmates plead to be sent home to Muslim countries?

      In Trinidad, Obama sat for 55 minutes enduring Daniel Ortega’s diatribe against the United States for mistreatment of Castro’s Cuba and for the Bay of Pigs. Obama protested that he could not be held responsible for something that happened the year he was born.

      Why could not he say to Ortega: “We also intervened in the Dominican Republic in 1965 to block a communist takeover, and in Grenada in 1983. The only problem with the Bay of Pigs is that we should have done it right and removed the odious Cuban dictatorship, and put Fidel, Raul and Che up against that same wall where so many patriots perished and spared the Cuban people 50 years of tyranny and the prostitution of their island into a base camp for the greatest despotism of the 20th century.”

      What is the matter with Obama that he cannot defend our Cold War conduct and Cold War presidents like Ike and JFK?

      Answer: Obama cannot, because at heart he buys into the anti-American narrative that ours is a deplorable history — of genocide against the Indians, of slavery and segregation, of robbing Mexicans of their land and of disrespecting our Latin neighbors.

      Obama is determined to make the requisite apologies to show the world he does not condone the sins our fathers committed.

      Thus, as Nile Gardiner of the Heritage Foundation has cataloged, Obama has apologized to Europe for our having “shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.” He apologized to Latin America for our having been “disengaged and at times … sought to dictate.”

      He told the Turks that we are “working through our own darker periods in our history. … Our nation still struggles with the legacy of slavery and segregation, the past treatment of Native Americans.”

      Obama, however, did not ask the Turks to confess to their own “darker periods,” which might have taken some time.

      Obama is the anti-Reagan. Where Reagan ever spoke of the greatness and glory of America, her history and heroes, her capacity to make the world all over again, Obama is like a dismal parson, forever reminding us — and everyone within earshot — of our own and our fathers’ sins.

      Obama is not only demoralizing Middle America, he is driving away the God-and-country patriots who are sick of hearing this rot from professors and journalists, and prefer not to hear it from their president. He is ceding moral high ground to regimes and nations that do not deserve it.

      If Obama believes he can build himself up by tearing America down, he is mistaken. Cynical foreigners will view it with snickering contempt, patriotic Americans with disgust. What kind of leader is it who talks down his own country on foreign soil?

      America’s performance in the Cold War was hardly flawless. But does anyone deny that we were on the right side, that the Soviet Empire and Mao’s China and communist Vietnam and Castro’s Cuba were on the side of tyranny — and that the neutrals were by and large irrelevant or worse in that great cause?

      A nation is an extended family. While families fight and quarrel, often bitterly, you do not take the family quarrel outside the family.

      You don’t hang the family’s dirty linen on the communal clothesline.

      Obama, however — like some Hollywood actress seeking sympathy and public approbation with her tell-all biography detailing how she was abused by her father — trolls for popularity with America’s adversaries by reciting for the benefit of the world all the sins his country has allegedly committed.

      When did this become the duty of the president of the United States?

    4. Brenda in Virginia on June 16th, 2009 1:57 pm

      So, Obama has declared N. Korea having nuclear weapons is dangerous? Tell us something that the world doesn’t already know dude!!!!

      As for conservatives hiding their collective heads in the sand, no…we would prefer to let the companies FAIL that were not fiscally responsible so other companies could rise up and take their place. It’s a little thing called FREE ENTERPRISE!

      Wish I could simply spend WAY beyond my means and hold out my hand for billions. Kinda like AIG who sent $80 million to India OVERSEAS. Yeah, that’s Obama’s idea of stimulus. I work for an offshoot of AIG and if AIG is 1/2 as bad managing today as my company is…that money has gone into the pockets of workers overseas who are already taking American jobs. I say let EVERY company fail that cannot hold it’s head above water, and demand US hire US Citizens for US jobs. Problem is…I work in IT and much can be done remotely. Many of our programmers are in India and VPN into our servers here in the state to work. WTF?

      nice piece by Patrick J. Buchanan

      don’t agree 100%

    6. on June 16th, 2009 3:10 pm

      Wolf: The Republicans did indeed present a solution to Pork = U Less, however because of the news media in the tank for O, it’s quiet plausible you never heard of it. Their solution would have spent $40 billion instead of $737 billion. They didn’t have anything in there for the Airport to nowhere or the billions to build an underpass so turtles won’t get hit by cars, nothing for Reid’s train between LA and Nevada and nothing for Pelosi’s tit mouse in the marshes either. No study of lobsters, zip for those “recovery signs” the Pork = U less spends $300 a piece for, no removal of Mormon crickets, Microsoft wouldn’t get their bridge between campuses and tattoo removal and the study of smelly swine would also go by the wayside in the Republicans’ plan.

    7. Dolf on June 16th, 2009 3:21 pm

      Brenda, you should know that when everybody is buying local products

      its a) difficult and b) dangerous for free trade.

      and letting those companies fail AT THAT MOMENT wasn’t really an option, it would have killed the US economicly. They should have went belly up I agree with you there.
      and the money isn’t going to the workers overseas, cause the work went overseas because labor is cheap, the money was going to the upper managent and stockholders.
      Obama can’t be blamed on the banks actions, you all didn’t want him to get to much to say, here in they demanded influence on the board.

      and is it a problem to work in Italy??

    16. Wolf on June 18th, 2009 10:56 am

      Whatever you guys think…here are more clues to your GOP hoopla crap

      One third of Republicans have an unfavorable view of their own party (compared with only 4 percent of Democrats who think unfavorably of their party), according to a new USA Today/Gallup Poll. Fifty-two percent of Americans can’t specify the “main person” who speaks for the Republicans. Thirteen percent say it’s radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, followed by former Vice President Dick Cheney at 12 percent, Arizona Sen. John McCain (the party’s presidential nominee last year) at 5 percent, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 4. Former President George W. Bush came in fifth, with only 3 percent. All these potential spokesmen are middle-aged or elderly white men, at a time when more and more voters are women, Hispanics, and young

    17. Scott on June 18th, 2009 11:17 am

      Yeah..well if we wanted to and should have done is turned Afghanistan and Iraq and the people that live there into dust much like we did with the Japanese.

      I’m sure your 4 wives are awesome looking. They probably resemble male camels than actual women. How do you hack through all that bush and smell?

      When is the last time you washed the sand out of your balls there Allah? Having fun living in a hole in the side of a mountain you piece of putrid stink!
