59% of Americans Believe Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) Should be Tried in Military Court … Obama in Opposition of the People Again
Mmm, Mmm, Mmm … Barack Hussein Obama:
Once again President Barack Hussein Obama finds himself on the wring side of the American people and history. By an overwhelming 59% to 36%, Americans believe accused September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed should be tried in a military court, rather than in a civilian criminal court.
Is it any wonder why Barack Obama’s approval rating continues to go down? The Obamamessiah continues to thumb his nose at the will of the American people and the main stream view on dealing with issues. Nothing this President does is popular with the American people. Get ready for his poll numbers to sink like a rock.
Poll conducted Nov. 20-22 USA Today/Gallup poll
Once again Obama is seen to only be pandering to his Democrat base with this decision. Republicans disagree with KSM being tried in a civilian criminal court by 74% to 22%. But more important to Obama’s approval numbers is that by an astounding 63% to 32% Independents disapprove of Obama’s choice.
As The Astute Blogger questions, how long will it take Obama to throw Holder under the bus to save face.
Beware of the bus, Obama is at the wheel
However, Barack Obama claims it was not his decision, but that of Attorney General Eric Holder. The AG announced that Mohammed+’s case would move from a military tribunal in Guantanamo Bay, where the admitted terrorist was originally charged, to a federal court in New York City. Obama had Holder go out on a limb with this decision to obviously provide cover for The One. In no way should any one but the President make the decision to change venues of a military tribunal to a civilian criminal court. In this case, the dithering President opted to have the buck stop with some one else. However, Obama can throw Holder under the bus if needed when the American people turn even more against this decision.
