Thank you Obama

Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

Thank you Obama

Default Thank you Obama

As Obama continues to do all he can to put people out of work and become more dependent on Government. We've now lost almost 2 million jobs since the sedative bill passed. Many million more since Obama won the election.

Things are looking up though. The Dems are being exposed for what they are and people are taking notice.

This is the first time in over two years of polling that the GOP has held the advantage on this issue…
Republicans also now hold a six-point lead on the issue of government ethics and corruption, the second most important issue to all voters and the top issue among unaffiliated voters. That shows a large shift from May, when Democrats held an 11-point lead on the issue…
For the eighth straight month, Republicans lead on national security. The GOP now holds a 51% to 36% lead on the issue, up from a seven-point lead in May. They also lead on the war in Iraq 45% to 37%, after leading by just two points in May and trailing the Democrats in April…
Democrats continue to hold the lead on the issues of health care, Social Security and education. While Democrats have a 10-point advantage on health care, that’s down from the 18-point lead the party had a month ago.

There's time yet....once the dems roll out their abominations for Health Care, Social Security and Education, they will trail the republicans on these issues as well. Some folks just gotta learn the hard way.....

Oh we agree on this....the thing that bugs me is the 'lag time' during which President Sasquatch IS the inexperienced, bumbling radical leftist that he is, and the time where President Sasquatch is ACKNOWLEDGED as being that bumbling inexperienced radical. i do not believe we will ever see the 2 cases intersect, however, and it MUST happen prior to 2012.

Fear not. Its gonna happen. If you make small, incremental changes, you can expect the perturbations of the status quo to be small and errors that are made to be recoverable. If you make major, step changes, you have to be right or the errors are going to produce large and obvious effects. If the economy continues to slide downwards into 2010 and unemployment keeps going up and if the US Treasury bond rate goes through the roof and interest rates shoot up and tax rates shoot up . . . it is going to be hard for the administration to sell the "all is swell!" line to anything but a 35% hard-core Democratic base, and the Democrats will be hammered in the mid-term election. Additionally, already some of the 35% hard-core Democratic base are chaffing under Obama, because he hasn't pulled out of Iraq and he is escalating our military committments in Afghanistan and Pakistan -- the opposite of what these folks want!

I don't know if gloating over the impending failure of the Democratic program is called for, however. Taking the analysis above a little further, if a system is not stable or is metastable, big changes can cause the system to go unstable and out of control. Is it not possible that the big changes introduced by the administration may make the US economy -- and the world economy -- to go wildly out of control with major long term bad effects? Even if stable, big changes -- if misguided -- are going to tend to introduce larger errors that take longer to correct and overcome than is the case with small changes. Ouch.

If the Annointed One and his dummocrap cronies aren't all walking on water, and acheiving more than smoke and mirrors soon, they'll have until the Congressional elections next year to salvage their phonyassed careers. If the sea change in the Congressional make up that I see coming happens the purse strings will clench so tightly that Osama will be effectively neutered. That's what happened to Klintoon once the Congress changed on him.

I agree with the 'baby step' vs 'Giant Step' incrementalism. I agree that dopey is doing giant steps, and the people with the most to lose (who appear to be educated, to varying degrees) are seeing the potentiality and/or volatility to be associated with these changes. The problem as I see it, is that this ideological 'war' is being enjoined in the halls of government without meaningful opposition, and this 'mutation' is being condoned by the mass media which holds to the same or similar ideology. There is a huge contingency of the 'unwashed masses' out there who can only understand the case as it is presented to them by the partisans on the major networks. Maybe I don't give 'po' folks' enough intellectual credit, but his power base does not appear to be dwindling. Polls show he is very popular PERSONALLY but his POLICIES are being subjected to falling approval numbers. The critical part of that equation is whether or not the ideologues who espouse racial politics, and the ideologues who look favorably on socialism as a preferred form of government will be willing to separate personality from policy. I am greatly alarmed and completely disillusioned at the sense and sensibilities of the people who voted for this bum in the face of his history, his personal 'resumee' if you will, and his voting record on the state and federal levels. I do not put much stock in the intellect of people who'd vote AGAINST a republican rather than vote FOR a Democrat.... I can only imagine (and hope !) that there are huge numbers of disillusioned stupid democrats waking up to smell the coffee....
