Well this as good a poll as any to use on Halloween …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 37% of Americans say that a Zombie would do a better job than the current federal government officials that are in Washington, DC. One might say the undead vs. the brain dead. To be honest with you for the most part these days, I do not think we could tell the difference between the two. Actually, how do we know they are not Zombies? We have yet to see any polling on how vampires, ghosts or ghouls do as compared to federal government.
All in favor of the bill say aye …
It’s not exactly a vote of confidence in the powers that be: A sizable number of Americans think the undead would do a better job than the brain dead in Washington, D.C.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults believe the federal government would do a better job than zombies running the country today. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most Americans don’t share that view, with just as many (37%) who feel zombies would do a better job running the country and another 26% who can’t decide between the two.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is widely considered the front-runner for the Democrat nomination for President in 2016 and many believe the next President of the United States. However, the same could be said to be true in 2008 when from out of no where an unqualified, novice Senator from Illinois defeated her in the primaries. A new WSJ/NBC poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers have slipped a bit as 46% view her positively and 33% view her in a negative light. Her positive rating is down 10% from April. As Obama’s poll numbers plummet, Hillary’s appear to be sliding as well.
What difference does it make that I failed on the International stage in Benghazi and four Americans died?
Hillary Clinton’s public image has slumped in recent months, with younger voters, Democrats and independents taking a less enthusiastic view of her, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows.
Overall, 46% registered a positive view of the ex-secretary of state, compared to 33% who expressed a negative opinion. As recently as April, 56% saw Mrs. Clinton in a positive light.
Mrs. Clinton has not yet declared her intentions in the 2016 presidential race, but if she runs she would be the solid front-runner in the Democratic field, public polling has shown.
From The Politico, Hillary Clinton is losing ground with young voters.
The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April among 18- to 34-year-olds who said they had a positive view of Clinton to 38 percent. Additionally, her approval rating among independents fell from 46 percent to 35 percent. Clinton’s approval among Democrats also fell by 12 points, from 88 percent in April to 76 percent in the most recent poll.
Obviously Hillary Clinton is the front-runner for 2016 as she has the greatest name recognition; however, she does face several obstacles that could be her undoing.
- Because Hillary Clinton has such name recognition and is a known commodity, very few are going to have no opinion or not know they name so she has very little upside in undecided individuals.
- Hillary Clinton is considered part of the “Washington establishment” and by the time 2016 rolls around the American people may be beyond completely fed up with Washington “insiders”.
- After 8 years of Barack Obama and an exasperated America, the voters may just be exhausted of having a Democrat in the White House.
- If Obamacare continues to be the disaster that it is and implodes as the model is pretty much unsustainable the Americans are going to be in no mood for Hillary Healthcare either.
- Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi … when the truth comes out and it will come out, it will be damning for Hillary Clinton. She is going to rue the day she made the comment, “What difference does it make … “ She is going to be savaged in the debates and going to have to answer for Benghazi and why she turned a deaf ear to warnings and requests for more security.
- Obama Fatigue and he may be so unpopular and toxic at that point that it taints her run.
- The outcome of the 2014 elections.
- If the economy continues to stink, pathetic job growth, low employment participation rate, record federal debt and record food stamp participants, America is going to want a change of parties at the top.
- Did we say Benghazi?
- Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016 and is there that young Democrat candidate that we have not even heard of yet that will steal her thunder as Obama did in 2008?
If you missed the House hearings yesterday on the Obamacare website debacle rollout with HHS. Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the below VIDEO is some of the highlights. Some questioning was better than others and for the most part the Democrats decided not to care to represent the millions of people who have lost their insurance who are their constituents. Instead, they played partisan politics and seemed to defend Obamacare, the website and blame the GOP of hoping that the sky is falling. This from the folks who said that sequestration would be the end of the world.
- Sebelius actually said the site has not crashed.
- “Some people like to drink out of a red solo cup, not a crystal stem”
- “Hold me accountable for the debacle, I am responsible”
- “We’re not in Kansas anymore”
- “Would you recommend to the president that he stop using the term, ‘If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan’”
- The problem with this whole debate, is you [Sebelius] won’t tell us who made the decisions”.
- Who made the decision on the 27 year old quote who is 50?”
- “We did not adequately do end-to-end testing”
What might have been one of the more eye-opening Q&A that should give all pause who entered their person data on Healthcare.gov was when it was asked,”Has each piece of that code that has been introduced into the system been security tested?” Sebelius’ ultimate answer was , “I don’t know”. WHAT? How could you not know and have made it go live? Sounds HIPAA compliant to me, NOT!
I guess Obama will consider this another phony scandal.
Sanford, FL To Ban Neighborhood Watch From Carrying Guns in the Wake of George Zimmerman Being Found Not Guilty in Death of Trayvon Martin
Imagine what would have happened if there was no gun
The city of Sanford, FL is going to ban neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns following the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Well that makes all the sense in the world that a man was found not guilty of committing a crime in a court of law by a jury of his peers and Sanford is basically going to act as if he was guilty. As stated at Legal Insurrection, Zimmerman successfully and lawfully defended himself against an attacker and possible real harm, maybe even death and Sanford passes a law banning neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns.
The city of Sanford is making major changes to its neighborhood watch program, including banning volunteers from carrying guns while on patrol, and forbidding them from pursuing anyone in their neighborhoods. Just curious, what are they allowed to do, watch the thugs rob, beat and kill people?
Pic Hat Tip – Legal Insurrection
Just months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Florida city where the incident occurred intends to ban neighborhood watch members from carrying guns, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
The ban on guns in Sanford, Fla. comes amid other changes, including formal training and volunteer registration, which will be announced in full at a meeting Nov. 5 at City Hall. Residents acting in a neighborhood watch role are also not to follow someone they deem suspicious, according to MSN News.
I am sure thugs, robbers and thieves are just wetting themselves with this news. So let’s understand this, if you are a neighborhood watch volunteer you can’t carry a gun, but if you are not, you can. Boy, there is some logic for you.
UNREAL … Individual Wears Barack Obama Costume To Jennie Stuart Medical Center Work Halloween Party in Kentucky … As a result, All 750 Employees Required to Take Diversity Training
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM PC AMERICA … DOUBLE STANDARD LIBERAL POLICIES!!!
Remember when a Halloween party was a Halloween party and you could wear crazy, spooky, evil, funny, costumes and it was all in fun? Well those days are over as the PC police are at it again. It is now considered rasists and offensive to dress up like Barack Obama. A man at the Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville, Kentucky wore a Barack Obama costume to his work’s annual Halloween party complete with mask and straight-jacket. The result was that all 750 employees were required to take diversity training because of this. HUH? Yup, one person’s costume because it was if the Obamamessiah caused individuals to complain. Has the world gone completely mad? The VP of HR at his company may need a mental evaluation. How does dressing up like Obama for Halloween in turn result in sensitivity training? Just curious, how is such behavior considered offensive and require sensitivity training when SNL mocks the president all the time like HERE and HERE?
I actually think its pretty offensive to force people to buy a product or face a tax, or its pretty damn offensive to rack up a $17 trillion federal debt and it is damn sure offensive to leave four Americans to die in Benghazi and not lift a finger to help them and then blame it on a video tape. The ridiculousness of this kind of nonsense has reached epic proportions. I think it is a safe bet that some one will always be offended by an action that another does. Sadly, this country has gotten worse under Obama.
A picture of a Jennie Stuart Medical Center employee wearing a President Barack Obama mask and straitjacket at the hospital’s annual costume party has stirred debate.
As a result, all 750 employees have now been required to take diversity training. The VP of Human Resources at the medical center issued a statement to staff apologizing for anyone who was offended and personally took responsibility since the incident occurred on his watch.
Because as stated at Weasel Zippers, like diversity training would have been required if some one worse a George W. Bush mask and made people feel … uncomfortable. Yea, I am sure they would have done the same with a Sarah Palin costume as well.
A note to all … if you wear an Obama costume in a straight-jacket and show up for Halloween, you will get extra candy. If you have a teleprompter or empty chair, you may get it all!!!

Obamacare Web Site Crashed on HHS Sec. Sebelius During House Hearings on Obamacare as Sebelius Says Obama has Kept His Promise that “If You Like Your Healthcare Plan You Can Keep It” VIDEO
You just can’t make this stuff up … with the Obama administration, its keeping your promise even when you are obviously not.
Yesterday during the House hearings on Obamacare and the disastrous rollout of the website Healthcare.gov, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was on the hot seat as she fielded questions from the failed rollout, to security issues, to who is to blame as to was the site even tested. However, Sebelius could not answer the most obvious questions as to whether President Barack Obama kept his promise to the American people when he said repeatedly, “If You Like Your Healthcare Plan You Can Keep It.”
During the House Hearings hearings on the Obamacare website, US Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked the question on everyone’s mind to HHS Secretary Sebelius as to whether Barack Obama kept his promise to “We the People” or was he lying through his teeth?
Blackburn: Before, during and after the law was passed the president said if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it. So is he keeping his promise?
Sebelius: Yes he is.
YES? Um, what part of “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period!” doesn’t Sebelius quite get? Because the statement is so ambiguous, isn’t it? That would be sarcasm.
Video Hat Tip - The Gateway Pundit
In keeping with the farce and joke that is Obamacare and its unbelievable, disastrous incompetent rollout … as HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the individual in charge of overseeing Obamacare and the implementation of the web site and health exchanges, was testifying before the House doing her best to spin and defend the indefensible … Healthcare.gov crashed during her testimony! As we say all the time, nothing is stranger than the truth and you just can’t make this stuff up.
Just minutes before Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was set to testify on Capitol Hill, the Healthcare.gov site crashed. Spot checks verified that the State of North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, and New Hampshire are all down – which likely means the entire federal site is down.
The site was still down thirty-minutes into Sebelius’ testimony.
UPDATE I: Kathleen Sebelius apologizes for Obamacare website fiasco while Obama defends law in Boston.
Go figure, Barack Obama was less contrite in his tone and instead of apologizing, he doubled down and defended it.
Sebelius, the Health and Human Services secretary, apologized to the nation for the botched launch of the Affordable Care Act in testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
“In these early weeks, access to health care has been a miserably frustrating experience,” the former Kansas governor said.
“Let me say directly to these Americans: you deserve better,” Sebelius said. “I apologize.”
President Obama struck a less contrite tone in Boston as he defended the law by touting successes of the Massachusetts measure it was modeled on.
GOOD GRIEF, IS NO ONE SAFE FROM OBAMACARE … MORE “F” UPS FROM THE GANG THAT COULDN’T SHOOT STRAIGHT …
Good news, you can now get through on the to Obamacare enrollment sights, bad news it is a cupcake shop in Brooklyn, NY. Unreal, Obamacare is just a menace. How is it possible that something could be so riddled with glitches, error and screw ups. Thanks to yet another botched government insurance rollout issue, the Health Department has listed numerous non-health-related business as enrollment sites for Obamacare, including a Brooklyn cupcake shop. You just can’t make this stuff up. Look on the bright side though, at least these callers will be able to actually buy something.
Thanks to ObamaCare, New Yorkers can now get health insurance with rainbow sprinkles.
In yet another bungle for the botched government insurance rollout, the state Health Department has mistakenly listed numerous non-health-related business as enrollment sites — including a Brooklyn cupcake shop that has been besieged by callers.
“I have nothing to do with this,” said Carmen Rodriguez owner of Brooklyn Cupcake in Williamsburg. “I run a very busy establishment, and I’m like, what is going on?”
Because of the mistake, her bakery has gotten 150 calls from people seeking medical-insurance information.
“There has to be somebody who can help with ObamaCare; that’s their own mess,” she said.
Um, only 150 calls? This phone number is a Brooklyn, NY exchange, wouldn’t you think they would get 100 x’s that number?
BOSTON RED SOX WIN WORLD SERIES … Wins Game Six over St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 and Clinch WS at Fenway for first time in 95 Years … David Ortiz Wins MVP
RED SOX WIN WORLD SERIES … THEY ARE GOING TO PARTY IN BOSTON LIKE ITS 1918!!!
The Boston Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 6 to 1 in game six of the World Series. It is the first time in 95 years that the Red Sox have won a World Series clinching game in the friendly confines of Fenway Park since 1918 … 95 years!!!
Boston Red Sox proved too “BOSTON STRONG” For Cardinals.
The Cardinals were chicken tonight in walking Boston’s amazing DH and future Hall of Famer David “Big Papi” Ortiz four times, 3 intentionally. However, that did not stop some unlikely heroes to step up to the plate and deliver. Right fielder Shane Victorino did not have a hit coming into tonight’s game and then went 2 for 3 with 4 rbi’s, including a 3 run double in the 3rd inning that put the Sox ahead 3-0. Then SS Stephen Drew who had only one hit, delivered a solo home run putting the Sox up 4-0. However, the two stand outs of the 2013 World Series were DH/1st David Ortiz who batted an amazing .688 and starting pitcher John Lester who won two games and gave up only 2 runs.
The Red Sox, defeated the Cardinals 6-1 on Wednesday to win their eighth World Series title and cap a wicked good worst-to-first season that delighted a city dealing with the aftermath of the deadly bombings at its signature marathon in April.
Shane Victorino drove in four runs with a bases-loaded double in the third and an RBI single in the fourth as Boston took the Series four games to two.
Leading hitter for the Red Sox, David Ortiz, walked four times — three times intentionally — and scored two runs.
A resurgent John Lackey pitched six strong innings before fading in the seventh and leaving with the bases loaded with a 6-1 lead. But reliever Junichi Tazawa got out Allen Craig to blunt the Cardinals’ comeback attempt.
UPDATE II: DAVID “BIG PAPI” ORTIZ WINS MVP!!!
Big Papi, the man who epitomized the grit, determination and will to stay “Boston” strong for the good folks of Boston and helped them overcome the heinous terror attack at the Boston Marathon earlier this year, has been a cult hero in Boston and New England for years. The talented, joking, always smiling and now we learn, rather good 1st baseman has been a team leader for years and is the only remaining player since the Red Sox 2004 World Series victory. However, Ortiz went even beyond even that when he proudly and defiantly stood up to terrorism … “This is Our F*cking City and No One is Going to Dictate Our Freedom… Stay Strong!”
How low can he go … after having lied to America regarding Obamacare, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” My bet is that it will go even lower …
According to the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Obama’s job approval rating is down 5% this month to a new low of 42%. The Gateway Pundit reports via NBC’s Chuck Todd’s tweet, Obama’s persona; approval rating upside down for first time ever with 41% viewing him in a favorable light and 45% viewing him negatively. We have said for years that Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30′s if the liberal MSM just did their job and reported the truth and the news about Barack Obama, rather than be is propaganda shills. The MSM is just starting to fairly report on Obamacare and Obama’s lies.
Imagine, just imagine what Obama’s approval ratings would be like if the MSM decided to truthfully report on Benghazi, IRS-gate, the economy, the $17 trillion debt, Food Stamp America, Fast & Furious, the NSA, Energy policy, EPA, Obamacare and Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in Egypt, Libya, Syria and the entire Middle East. This man has been a catastrophe for the United States.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office — tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer — allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.
As for other results from the NBC/WSJ poll, from the looks of how individuals feel about Congress, incumbent and establishment politicians should be a bit nervous heading into 2014 and 2016. The people may have finally reached the tipping point and will throw the bums out.

Real Clear Politics has every poll with Obama’s job approval rating underwater and an average of 43.9% approve, 51.6% disapprove and -7.7% spread.
