    Re: Poll: Public losing trust in President Obama

    The more people who do not trust and disprove of Obama in anyway the better. Hate to paraphrase a quote of Ross Perot but he cheated on his wife and if she can't trust him why should we.
    Here's a little something that should make real Americans feel good.

    Thursday, July 23, 2009
    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 29% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7.

    So there is good news out there. Meaning there is still some hope.

    Rasmussen now has Obama's approval rating below 50 percent.

    After watching his press conference the other day I am amazed that it is even that high; he came off as an arrogant dumbass.

    It was arrogant. How many times did he use his own name? How many times did he tell us that HE is the president?

    The other stunningly stupid thing was his blaming the Republicans and his answer to the reporter who asked the OBVIOUS; isn't this issue with your own party?

    And you called me here to try to debate you? You're still spinning the same wheels. Yeah because Acorn somehow was able to make up a bunch of votes a whole 7 million plus worth over McCain. So when George won in 2004 was that Acorn's failure or their triumph? Time to change the track on your ipod kago

    I know plenty about both. You're talking about one state over 30 years ago. Not multiple swing states swinging to Obama in high numbers. Acorn merely registers voters how does what they do have an effect on the election if no one who they registers votes.

    Let's go back to a bit of history here. Nixon narrowly lost in Texas and Illinois. At the time Nixon thought that fighting for a recount would hurt the office of the presidency so he stepped back. It was most likely because Eisenhower wouldn't support it so while Nixon stepped back his allies vigorously fought for a recount in about 11 states including Texas and Illinois. Also remember Kennedy was originally awarded the electoral votes for California until the absentee ballots came through and it was given to Nixon.

    So here's how it played out. Party chairman Thurston Morton filed legal challenges in 11 states: Delaware, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas.

    The federal judge in Texas threw out the suits as he claimed he lacked jurisdiction. However the other recounts did happen and the results were meaningless.

    In Illinois the recount of 863 precincts was completed on December 9th, 1960. The original tally did undercount Nixon's votes but only by 943. It would have taken Nixon 4,500 votes to overcome the deficit.

    So what's your beef both sides if anything were cheating. Nixon just didn't cheat well enough? And I find it Ironic that people would readily jump to Nixon's defense of that election when Nixon himself was caught cheating in another election.

    There was a study that you can find here done about the election of 1960 done by Edmund Kalia talking about the charges of fraud and how little it actually affected the election.

    Should we go more in depth?

    You have to understand American Kago called me over here from youtube and all I hear out of him is acorn acorn but without anything to back it up. Its hard to debate someone who thinks the president isn't an american citizen.
