Obama’s Approval Ratings Heading Down as GOP Now Leads in Health Care Debate … Obamacare meets its Vietnam, Now the One Blames the Media
Democrats so love to make references to Vietnam. Well Barack Obama and the Democrats have just met his own political Vietnam called Obamacare. How does “The One” feel that his socialized Obamacare has hit a quagmire and protests from the American people?
President Obama continues to live in a world of denial and cannot comprehend or admit that his health care plan for socialized, government control is a failure. In Obamaland everything is all Obama all the time and no one dare say no to Barack. Welcome to a place I like to call Earth Mr. President, where the will of the people and their right to dissent and freedom of speech is guaranteed under that little document that you seem to have little regard to called the US Constitution.
A desperate President now lashes out at the media for the coverage of Town Hall meetings as to the reason why what, people are against his plan? The very institution who got Obama elected by carrying his water and refusing to vet the candidate is now responsible for America being against Obamacare? Obama cannot sell his plan, because it is unsellable.
How bad a concept is Obamacare? It has systematically in less than two months transformed the entire political landscape in the United States. Think that is not the case, look at the polling numbers of Democrats across the board and specifically PA Senator Arlen Specter.
The once though of invincible Obamamessiah has been transformed into a defensive and partisan President hiding from his past comments of supporting a single government payer system and hiding behind planted questions at town hall meeting by 11 year old children of Obama supporters.
The end result is Barack Obama’s Daily Presidential Tracking index is at -8 according to a most recent Rasmussen poll. The trend is remarkable since Obama’s inauguration on January 21, 2009 when Obama was a rating of +28. More to the point the Rasmussen polls have shown that the Presidents overall approval rating is down to 47% & 48% while his disapproval rate is at an all time high of 52%.
Not only has Obamacare hit an all-time low in the polls, but the situation is so bad that Americans now favor Republicans to handle health care by a 44% to 41%. This is an astonishing turn of events as a Democratic 10 point lead last month on handling health care has fallen to a Republican lead by +3%. It is not surprising that the public support for Obama in handling health care, the economy and the budget has fallen as well. The more “We the People” are learning about Obamacare, the more the people are turning away from socialized, government controlled Obamacare.
For the first time in over two years of polling, voters trust Republicans slightly more than Democrats on the handling of the issue of health care. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that voters favor the GOP on the issue 44% to 41%.
Democrats held a four-point lead on the issue last month and a 10-point lead in June. For most of the past two years, more than 50% of voters said they trusted Democrats on health care. The latest results mark the lowest level of support measured for the party on the now-contentious issue.
What has been the Democrats response to “We the People” standing up against socialized medicine? Democratic leaders in the House and Senate have hurled insults at the voters.
Sadly, Barack Obama himself has remained in his own glass bubble refusing to understand or admit that opposition to his plan is real. As Independents support and sympathize with Town Hall protesters, Obama makes more excuses. Instead Obama blamed the media in a Town Hall meeting in Montana that TV loves a ruckus. As stated at the Politico, Obama embraces the new “exception not the rule” strategy on town halls. What world does this man live in, Obamaland?
Now, that also makes this debate an emotional one. I know there’s been a lot of attention paid to some of the town hall meetings that are going on around the country, especially when tempers flare — TV loves a ruckus.
What you haven’t seen on TV — and what makes me proud — are the many constructive meetings going on all over the country. Everywhere — everywhere across the country, you’re seeing people who are coming together and having a civil, honest — often difficult — conversation about how we can improve the system. That’s how democracy is supposed to work.
So the town hall meetings that have been volatile and in opposition to Obamacare are the exception? You mean like that phony, astro-turfed, contrived Democratic Town Hall meeting in NH? Come back to Earth Mr. President long enough to look at the polls. Instead as Blue Crab Boulevard states, those who disagree with Obama are “unpersons” and do not exist. I guess Rasmussen must be polling an awful lot of people who do not exist then?
