President Barack Obama Continued Poll Number Drop … Cap & Trade Legislation Not on the Table This Year


As Barack Obama’s poll numbers continue to fall and it becomes more and more evident that “We the People” want nothing of his socialist agenda that will do nothing but raise deficits and adversely affect an economy that is already is a recession … an Obama advisor stated that climate change Cap & Trade legislation will not be able to pass this year.  With the ever increasing cost to families that this legislation will cost American, one would doubt whether it will ever see the light of day. Pushing a vote to next year even closer to the 2010 midterm elections, politicians who actually want to return to Washington, DC would be wise to be absent on the day of the Cap & tax vote.

President Barack Obama’s top energy adviser said Friday there is no way Congress will be able to pass a bill on climate change this year.

“That’s not going to happen,” said the adviser, Carol Browner.

Browner made the statement at a conference organized by The Atlantic magazine, just days after Senate Democrats introduced a major bill on climate change. In a video posted on the magazine’s Web site, Browner was asked about the prospects of enacting climate legislation by the time negotiations on a global climate treaty begin in December in Copenhagen.

Americans already facing financial difficulties are really going to appreciate an extra $1,761 a year per household with Cap & Tax. Oh wait, look at this … cap & tax cost went up again. According to a report in the New York Post the cost per household is closer to $1,870.


Rasmussen Reports indicate that Obama has an overall approval rating in September of 49%. As poll numbers go down, what Democrat politician in their right mind is going to stick their neck out for a President with downward trending poll numbers?

      I think that politicians would be wise to vote “no” on this disastrous legislation that a majority of Americans do not support. Write your Senators and tell them you do not support legislation that will kill jobs and costs American families thousands every year.

      Once again, off the topic of this thread, but has to be said:

      We are continually compromising our principles and comforting the Red Chinese communist government by distancing ourselves from having the Dalai Lama visit the President of the United States, the first snub since 1991 of the Dalai Lama.

      Wall Street Journal reports:

      “In nearly nine months in office, President Obama has found time to meet with Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega and Vladimir Putin. But this week he’ll have no time to see the Dalai Lama, a peaceful religious leader who has for decades been a friend to the United States and an advocate of human rights for China’s six million Tibetans.”

      Just another sad day in the history of the United States and the principles of human rights, which evidently mean less than nothing to President Barrack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

      I can only hope that some of the Senators and congressmen can upstage this overt arrogance by our President and highlight the Dalai lama and his peaceful cause for humanity.

      The last sentence from the article by the WSJ says it best:

      ” It’s becoming clear that Mr. Obama’s definition of “engagement” leaves plenty of room to meet with dictators, but less for the men and women who challenge them.”

      [ per household is closer to $1,870.] Now, how many
      of those ‘households’ are working, taxpaying families?
      Could it be that the cost per ‘working/taxpaying
      household’ might be now re-estimated at closer
      to $3,740 (and rising by each new admission of
      ‘more than anticipated’)? Play that against the crumbling
      job market and the foolishness of these Bills becomes

      Obama also has plenty of time for freak shows like this: (while US soldiers are paying with
      their lives)

      Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual Transgender Dinner & March

      they also call it LGBT for short because I
      think it makes people vomit all over the
      floor less?


      President Obama will be the keynote speaker at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner on Saturday in Washington, D.C.“We are honored to share this night with President Obama, who has called upon our nation to embrace LGBT people as brothers and sisters,”(Snip).The dinner precedes a scheduled march on Washington by the LGBT community to take place on Sunday.

      The change he wanted you to believe in, was a sex change.

      Obama hearts Tootsie and Mrs. Doubtfire!!!! No ‘scriminatin’ dawg.

      .05 % freaks are people too! Everything is normal.

      No wonder why his numbers continue to drop.

      This is from a Murdoch owned site:

      Obama effect pushes US into most admired poll position:

      October 06, 2009 06:08pm
      THE US is the most admired country globally thanks largely to the star power of President Barack Obama and his Administration, according to a poll.

      America climbed from seventh place last year, ahead of France, Germany, the United Kingdomand Japan which completed the top five nations in the Nation Brand Index.

      “What’s really remarkable is that in all my years studying national reputation, I have never seen any country experience such a dramatic change in its standing as we see for the United States for 2009,” founder of NBI, Simon Anholt, said.
      The index measures the global image of 50 countries each year.

      He believes that during the previous Administration of George W. Bush the US suffered in the world ranking with its unpopular foreign policies but since Mr Obama was elected, and despite the recent economic turmoil, the country’s status has risen globally.

      “There is no other explanation,” Mr Anholt said.

      The global survey, conducted by GFK Roper Public Affairs & Media, involved 20,000 people in 20 rich and developing countries around the globe.

      They were asked to rate 50 nations in categories such as culture, governance, people, exports, tourism, landscape and education.

      Canada took the biggest hit in the latest survey, falling to seventh from fourth place, while China climbed several spots to 22nd, which Mr Anholt believed was due in part to the successful staging of the Olympics.

      China has always scored low on human rights and environmental policies but high on cultural heritage.

      “It is the first time China’s profile has risen,” Mr Anholt said.

      “Since the Olympics, its score for tourism and its people has risen and that has helped to stem its decline.”

      Italy maintained the sixth spot in the survey for the second year, while Switzerland came in eight, followed by Australia in 9th place and Spain and Sweden, which tied for 10th place.

      At the opposite end of the survey Colombia and Kenya tied for 47th place.
      Angola was number 49 and Iran came in last at number 50.

      #6 otti

      Am I to understand that in order for us to gain #1 pole postion in most admired, we have to LOWER our standards to match these nations?

      Who actually gives a rat’s *ss what the rest of the world thinks of us, they have their hand out but never have anything in it to actually help us with, only to take from us.

      Yeah, we’re #1, although I wouldn’t want to admit it, as it doesn’t seem to be all that.

      (W.C. Fields: “No, I don’t know LaFong, L-a-F-o-n-g, and if I did, I wouldn’t admit it!)
