    Re: One Democrat Breaking Ranks!!

    The fact remains liberals and conservatives are unhappy with this bill. Just how long will this party, this president continue to ignore the people?



    source
    Majority Oppose Senate Health Bill, Many Doubt Changes Will Improve System

    Continuing a string of surveys showing public opinion running against passage of health care reform, 56 percent of Americans oppose the Senate bill based on what they know about it, while 42 percent support it with 2 percent undecided, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll conducted Dec. 16-20.

    However, that number is down from two weeks ago when the margin of opposition was 61 percent to 36 percent.

    Thirty-eight percent believe the bill would change things for the worse as far as the care and insurance available to most Americans, 26 percent said it wouldn't change anything while 34 percent believe it would change things for the better.

    When it comes to their own families, 39 percent said the Senate measure would result in no change, 37 percent said the change would be for the worse and 22 percent said it would be for the better......

    I get a kick out of reading the cons hangin' on every poll - no matter the subject - that comes out negative to this administration.

    I remember, not so very long ago how they chastised President Clinton for governing by the polls, by sticking his finger in the air to gauge the political wind in the air, by checking the bend of the tree limbs.

    Now they demand it when in their favor.

    I remember how they admired President G. W. Bush for his resolute character. How he would stay true to his principle no matter the dissent surrounding him.

    Now it's ignoring the will of the people.


    Cons are funny. Funny cons.

    Yes indeed. Spot on.

    Here's something else for the Obama Haters to contemplate: if Obama is so terribly dangerously liberal (), why is he willing to piss off not just the right, but the left, as well? Gee, I dunno. Could it be because he's not a far-left partisan suckup megalomaniac as so many on the right insist?

    Well, let's see... Obama sold himself as a post-partisan uniter.
    GONG!

    He sold himself as an agent of Change. Not a socialist according to his propagandists who didn't bother to vet him.
    GONG!

    He said he would run a transparent government for the people.
    GONG!

    The claims were this would be a post-racial time.
    GONG!GONG!GONG!

    He is a cut of his commi-trained (Hawaii), race baiting church (Chicago)... it's just that he hasn't been able to get everything his Marxist desires (or his followers) desire.

    So his wacko followers are pissed, and Americans feel lied to... not just Republicans... but the so-called Independents. R's alone can't tank his numbers to 44%... the worst ever for a 1st year president.

    How's that bit of reality taste?

    .

    PS. Bush didn't live and die by the polls, but the left sure used them... to create news. They're awfully silent on these polls though, just the normal, run of the mill polls. Not out of the ordinary stuff to generate outrage among the Manhattenites and San Fransisco whack jobs.

    Hey! Talk'in about SF... Where's Cindy Sheehan these days? I hear she's pissed off. Not a usable douche bag anymore? Just a douche bag?

    However, from what I can tell, most all presidents go through the ratings roller coaster. Bush's ratings were so low at the end of his term it carried over to the GOP as a whole and we all see what happened then. Even though Bush couldn't have ran for president anyways due to term limits, the GOP still suffered a tremendous loss.

    The pendulum of politics never seems to stop swinging.
    True, but of course it depends on the poll also:

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President.

    Well if the Presdient flies into your state and backhandedly tries to get you to not run for a full term Im sure you would be pissed off too.

    Here's the thing. Onumbnuts wants Mario's seed to be coronated as his prince here in the People's Republic. Cuomo shares the same twisted philosophy as Der Komissar himself.

    Take notice: Dutch is a republican that is consistent and has integrity. He won't praise someone he thinks was a moron yesterday because it's to his favor. Many of you flip floppers on the right could learned something from him.
