Obama’s poll numbers interpreted

Posted by Liberty on March 15, 2009

Obama’s Poll Numbers Are Falling to Earth

“It is simply wrong for commentators to continue to focus on President Barack Obama’s high levels of popularity, and to conclude that these are indicative of high levels of public confidence in the work of his administration. Indeed, a detailed look at recent survey data shows that the opposite is most likely true. The American people are coming to express increasingly significant doubts about his initiatives, and most likely support a different agenda and different policies from those that the Obama administration has advanced.”

While I agree that it is simply wrong for commentators to keep gushing about Obama’s popularity [while ignoring the growing unpopularity of his socialist policies] it probably isn’t going to stop.  After all, some may say that it was wrong of the MSM to whitewash Obama’s record as the most liberal Senator.  What about ignoring his radical associations with people like Reverend Wright, Father Pfleger and William Ayers?  How about not investigating his career prior to being elected to office?  The MSM has displayed more curiosity about Michelle Obama’s biceps than about the real Barack Obama and how his left-wing policies will affect America.

“Polling data show that Mr. Obama’s approval rating is dropping and is below where George W. Bush was in an analogous period in 2001. Rasmussen Reports data shows that Mr. Obama’s net presidential approval rating — which is calculated by subtracting the number who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve — is just six, his lowest rating to date.”

Did you catch that?  Lower than George W. Bush!

“Overall, Rasmussen Reports shows a 56%-43% approval, with a third strongly disapproving of the president’s performance. This is a substantial degree of polarization so early in the administration. Mr. Obama has lost virtually all of his Republican support and a good part of his Independent support, and the trend is decidedly negative.”

And suddenly, I’m feeling positive.

The dichotomy that is Obama policy

Posted by Liberty on March 13, 2009

Should we believe Obama’s words or actions?

“President Barack Obama calls for an end to earmarks and then signs a budget for the rest of this year containing over 8,000 such congressional raids on taxpayers’ purses.

He calls for a new era of fiscal responsibility and then sends to Congress a ten-year plan for deficits as far ahead as the eye can see.
He calls for sacrifices from all and then proceeds to give 95% of American families a tax cut. He promises to revive the housing industry and then asks Congress to reduce the deductibility of mortgage interest.
He calls for the reform of the education system and then signs a budget that eliminates funds that keep a few poor kids in private schools, and out of the clutches of the Washington education system’s bureaucrats.
Confused or cunning? I report, you decide.”

Check out this article by Irwin Stelzer in the D.C. Examiner.  I heard this guy interviewed on the radio this morning.  He presents a pretty articulate list of issues where the things that Obama says and the things that he does differ.

Obama’s budget plan calls for increased tax enforcement…just not within his own cabinet

Posted by Liberty on February 22, 2009

Obama’s First Budget Seeks To Trim Deficit

So many things to write about within this article but so little patience for all things Obama!  He knows a lot of  people are outraged about the deficit spending stimulus plan.  By unveiling this latest plan to reduce the deficit, he’ll at least fool some of the huddled masses into thinking he’s not a big spender.  Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the useful idiots in the MSM are continuing their laudatory, incurious coverage of Obama.

I especially like how he’s made a couple of financial policy announcements this weekend–when the markets are closed.  Could it be that Obama has realized that the markets don’t seem to have much confidence in his abilities?  How much has the Dow tanked since America’s first true socialist president took office? 

Obama’s budget calls for higher taxes on businesses and the wealthy [a smart recession move, eh?] and spending cuts.  Of course, Obama has not targeted wasteful spending, layers of bureaucracy and redistributive programs–those things will only grow throughout his administration.  Obama’s spending cuts will be from our ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.  More for food stamps, more to keep uncreditworthy buyers in homes they can’t afford, more for health care [but only if the government deems it cost-effective] and less for defending America against Islamic terrorism.  The bright side of all of this nonsense is that at least Obama is making it easier for Conservatives to make the distinction between their policies and those of the socialist liberals currently in charge.

The real kicker for me in this article was this quote:

“Obama also proposes “a fairly aggressive effort on tax enforcement” that would target corporate loopholes…”

Now why is it that he cares whether or not corporations pay their fair share of taxes while nominating a bunch of tax cheats for positions in his administration?  Geithner, Daschle, Killefer, Solis…those are just the ones we know about so far.  Hypocrisy, any one?

Stimulating the destruction of health care as we know it.

Posted by Liberty on February 10, 2009

Ruin Your Health With the Obama Stimulus Plan: Betsy McCaughey

The Senate is poised to pass Obama’s massive “socialize America” stimulus plan.  Thanks to human jellyfish pseudo Republicans like Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, news blips everywhere will praise the bill’s passing as “bipartisan.”  The unfortunate thing is that there is policy buried in this stimulus that will change the course of our society as we know it. 

Most people don’t even have a clue–they’ve bought the Obama bill of goods that the stimulus will build roads and schools.  Obama has done this country a major disservice by doing his best to shut down discussion on this bill.  If there had been a more honest, open debate, perhaps more people would know about the back-door transition to socialized medicine that’s been included under the guise of improving our economy.  Here I reference a piece that was published yesterday on Bloomberg.com.  Betsy McCaughey has done the work that the celebutard pre-occupied main stream media has refused to do.  Debate rages about Jessica Simpson’s weight gain, Alex Rodriguez’s steriod use and whether or not some R&B artist beat up his girlfriend when it should be focused on the fraud being perpetrated upon us all.  The numbers included in the quotes I’ve pulled from Ms. McCaughey’s article are the page numbers in the  H.R. 1 EH, pdf version.

“The bill’s health rules will affect ‘every individual in the United States’ (445, 454, 479). Your medical treatments will be tracked electronically by a federal system. Having electronic medical records at your fingertips, easily transferred to a hospital, is beneficial. It will help avoid duplicate tests and errors.

But the bill goes further. One new bureaucracy, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, will monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective. The goal is to reduce costs and ‘guide’ your doctor’s decisions (442, 446). These provisions in the stimulus bill are virtually identical to what [Tom] Daschle prescribed in his 2008 book, “Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.” According to Daschle, doctors have to give up autonomy and ‘learn to operate less like solo practitioners.’”

I don’t know about you but I trust my doctor.  That’s why I go to her instead of down to the DMV when I need medical care.  If you’re wondering what exactly it means to have the federal government “guide” your doctor’s decisions, read on.

 

“Hospitals and doctors that are not ‘meaningful users’ of the new system will face penalties.  ‘Meaningful user’ isn’t defined in the bill. That will be left to the HHS secretary, who will be empowered to impose ‘more stringent measures of meaningful use over time’ (511, 518, 540-541).

What penalties will deter your doctor from going beyond the electronically delivered protocols when your condition is atypical or you need an experimental treatment? The vagueness is intentional. In his book, Daschle proposed an appointed body with vast powers to make the ‘tough’ decisions elected politicians won’t make.

The stimulus bill does that, and calls it the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research (190-192). The goal, Daschle’s book explained, is to slow the development and use of new medications and technologies because they are driving up costs. He praises Europeans for being more willing to accept ‘hopeless diagnoses’ and ‘forgo experimental treatments,’ and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the health-care system.”

Is this what you want?  To accept a “hopeless diagnosis” like a European?  To just give up?  What about hope?  Isn’t hope the very thing we’re supposed to have now that Obama has been elected?

“Daschle says health-care reform ‘will not be pain free.’ Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them. That means the elderly will bear the brunt.

Medicare now pays for treatments deemed safe and effective. The stimulus bill would change that and apply a cost- effectiveness standard set by the Federal Council (464).

The Federal Council is modeled after a U.K. board discussed in Daschle’s book. This board approves or rejects treatments using a formula that divides the cost of the treatment by the number of years the patient is likely to benefit. Treatments for younger patients are more often approved than treatments for diseases that affect the elderly, such as osteoporosis.”

Quick, can somebody tell me who the AARP endorsed in the 2008 Presidential election?

The hypocrisy here is simply appalling.  These same “compassionate” liberals that don’t believe in killing terrorists and think that every child should start the day with taxpayer-funded Lucky Charms are implementing policy that will deny medical treatments for the elderly.  How long is it going to be before the doctor approaches the family gathered around dear old aunt Mary’s bedside and says, “The Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research says there’s nothing more we can do.  I think it’s time to put her down.”

“If the Obama administration’s economic stimulus bill passes the Senate in its current form, seniors in the U.S. will face similar rationing. Defenders of the system say that individuals benefit in younger years and sacrifice later.

The stimulus bill will affect every part of health care, from medical and nursing education, to how patients are treated and how much hospitals get paid. The bill allocates more funding for this bureaucracy than for the Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force combined (90-92, 174-177, 181).

Hiding health legislation in a stimulus bill is intentional. Daschle supported the Clinton administration’s health-care overhaul in 1994, and attributed its failure to debate and delay. A year ago, Daschle wrote that the next president should act quickly before critics mount an opposition. ‘If that means attaching a health-care plan to the federal budget, so be it,’ he said. ‘The issue is too important to be stalled by Senate protocol.'”

Arrogance!  Unbelievable arrogance!  Not only does Daschle think that he is above paying taxes, he believes you should not have a say on the implementation of socialized medicine.  Don’t comfort yourself for a second by thinking that at least Daschle has withdrawn his nomination.  That isn’t going to slow this plan down in the least.  The Senate is scheduled to vote today.  You can still call them.

Update, 11:22 am

The bill passed.  Our only hope for stopping this is in the conference committee now.  I thought of two things since I originally posted this morning.  Liberals whipped themselves into a hysteria over the Bush administration’s wire taps on suspected terrorists.  Civil libertarians were absolutely crazed over it.  Do you think they’ll have a problem with a federal bureaucracy over-seeing our health care? 

Also, what about the “my body, my choicer’s?”  They want choice when it comes to killing babies and under Obama’s plan, that’s one option that will probably always be there.  But what will your choices be when the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research dictates your treatment for diabetes, arthritis, kidney stones or any other condition to your doctor?  Why is it important for you to have the choice to kill babies but not to choose what course of treatment is best for cancer, MS or neo-natal care?

Senator Debbie Stabenow favors silencing Conservative dissent…because she knows liberalism is an inferior philosophy and it can not withstand scrutiny

Posted by Liberty on February 6, 2009

Sen. Stabenow wants hearings on radio ‘accountability’; talks fairness doctrine

Michael Calderone’s Blog on The Politico has a brief summary of Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow’s conversation on Bill Press’s radio show.  Press asks Senator Stabenow if it is time to bring back the Fairness Doctrine.  Here is her response:

“I think it’s absolutely time to pass a standard. Now, whether it’s called the Fairness Standard, whether it’s called something else — I absolutely think it’s time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked rightly about accountability and transparency. You know, that we all have to step up and be responsible. And, I think in this case, there needs to be some accountability and standards put in place.”

I was under the impression that Senators take some kind of oath about protecting the Constitution.  This woman clearly has no understanding of the real intent of the First Amendment.  It specifically protects political speech, even political speech that the Democratic majority finds offensive.  The Fairness Doctrine was morally wrong and unconstitutional when it was first imposed and it would be morally wrong and unconstitutional today.  The ability to speak freely in the arena of political debate is fundamental to America.  American political writers like Thomas Paine and Samuel Adams fueled the Revolution by informing and energizing the masses.  Today, Conservatives count on Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingram and others on talk radio to perform the same Constitutionally-protected function.

I have always found it interesting that liberals that push for the Fairness Doctrine only target talk radio, which is largely Conservative.  Senator Stabenow, will your “standards” and “accountability” version of the Fairness Doctrine also apply to The New York Times, The Washington Post, The L.A. Times, The Seattle Times and other newspapers?  What about Time, People, US Weekly, Newsweek, Vanity Fair…do I need to go on?  What about network news on ABC, NBC, CBS?  Where in the hell is the fairness on those networks?  How about cable news on CNN, CNN Headline News, MSNBC, etc?  Are you going to require the Daily Kos to also publish Ann Coulter?  Mark Steyn on Huffington Post?  Don’t you see the hypocrisy in targeting only one type of media…the one type of media that is known for political views that you don’t like? 

Michael Calderone also points out one tiny little conflict of interest that Senator Stabenow has on this subject.  Stabenow is the wife of Tom Athans, who is a liberal talk radio executive.  Liberal talk radio is a colossal failure–perhaps Stabenow is still a little bitter.  Oh, and didn’t Hillary Clinton talk at some point during the Bush administration about how dissent and disagreement is patriotic?  Don’t be unpatriotic, Senator Stabenow!

Even intellectually honest liberals should admit that granting the government the right to shut down political dissent is a dangerous thing.  If you’d like to contact Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow, her direct phone number is 202-224-4822.  E-mail at http://stabenow.senate.gov/.

Unfortunately, she’s not the only Senator with censorship on her agenda.  The main Senate switchboard number is 202-224-3121.  The main House switchboard number is 202-225-3121.

We’re all excited about the first African-American…RNC chair?

Posted by Liberty on February 3, 2009

I’ve been hearing joyful news-bites this morning about Eric Holder’s confirmation as the first African-American Attorney General.  It reminded me of something good that happened on Friday that didn’t get much play in the MSM.  Michael Steele was voted in as the new chair of the Republican National Committee.  And yes, he is an African-American.  That said, it is my opinion that the substance of a person is so much more important than style.  Character, principles and the capacity to lead are the criteria by which we should choose our leaders, not race and general “coolness.”

Michael Steele possesses the qualifications and the vision to lead the GOP back to the top.  He understands the importance of articulating a clear message of Conservatism.  Check out the RNC website for his “Blueprint for Tomorrow.”  That’s our guiding plan, guys.   He stresses the importance of leading with integrity, clearly defining the difference between Republicans and Democrats and upgrading our strategies to compete in the modern political arena.  I have to tell you, I’m optimistic about Michael Steele.  I have every hope that he will be a leader for Conservatives, not just party hacks.

An Obama appointee with integrity–she’s withdrawing!

Posted by Liberty on February 3, 2009

Performance Czar Killefer Withdraws Candidacy

I’m experiencing that feeling of deja vu this morning.  Yet another Obama appointee has tax issues!  Wow!  Let me predict what is going to be said about performance czarina Nancy Killefer’s tax problem.  “It was an honest mistake.”  Or perhaps, “She had a little glitch with her Turbo Tax.” 

“Ms. Killefer, 55 years old, failed to pay employment taxes on household help for a year and a half, the Associated Press reported. In 2005, the AP said, the District of Columbia filed a $946.69 tax lien on her home for failure to pay the unemployment compensation tax. The error was resolved five months later.”

Oh…the old employment taxes on the household help.  Well, we’ve all had that problem, right?  I couldn’t find the box on the 1040 for that one, either.

As it turns out, though, silly excuses probably won’t be necessary.  Nancy Killefer is withdrawing her candidacy, saying that she doesn’t want her tax problems to be a distraction for the new administration.  There goes the only Obama appointee [so far] who possessed an ounce of shame.  Tom?  Tim?  What about you guys?

Oh, and one more thing.  How badly would the MSM be savaging tax-challenged appointees to a Republican administration?

Will Obama voters notice the hypocrisy here?

Posted by Liberty on February 3, 2009

Obama is forced to bend firm rule on hiring ex-lobbyists

Remember hearing Obama bashing lobbyists out on the campaign trail?  He used to say that he didn’t take their money and would not provide them with positions in his administration.  He used to accuse lobbyists of being part of the problem with how business works in Washington D.C.  He even went so far as to publicly make a rule against lobbyists in his administration. 

And now, the bait and switch has been done all over again.  Notice the use of the word “forced.”  The A.P. headline writer has made a subtle effort to absolve Obama of responsibility.  What I have to wonder is this:  how will this play with the Hope-n-changer’s?  Will they even notice that Obama is now governing against his own campaign rhetoric?

Say bye bye to Blago

Posted by Liberty on January 29, 2009

Prosecutor: ‘pattern of abuse’ by Ill. governor

“The prosecutor in the impeachment trial of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he’s proven ‘a pattern of abuse of power.’In his closing argument Thursday, prosecutor David Ellis said the evidence shows Blagojevich knew his conduct was improper.”

It looks like Blago’s goose is just about cooked.  I do have to give Blago credit for believing in himself–he’s been off on a media blitz this week, all the while proclaiming his innocence.  And this despite the tapes that the prosecutor has been playing for the jury.  You know the tapes…the ones you’ve heard on the news that clearly feature him talking about seeking favors or money for the messiah’s Senate seat.  Blago is either shamelessly dishonest or totally off his rocker.  Or both. 

Oh, and I do have to give the AP credit.  They actually mentioned in this article that Blago is a Democrat.  Oh, really?  Hmm…I had no idea.  Of course, if the story were about a corrupt Republican, they would have put the word, “Republican” in the headline and 15 times throughout the article also.  Oh well.  Progress is progress.

The tolerant, open-minded Left attacks Rush Limbaugh

Posted by Liberty on January 28, 2009

Democrats Start Petition Against Rush Limbaugh

What is constitutionally protected free speech?  If you’re a liberal, it means calling former President George W. Bush “Hitler”…or worse.  It means calling Sarah Palin a “bimbo”…or worse.  It is wearing a t-shirt that says “Bong Hits for Jesus.”  It is pseudo art exhibits like crucifixes suspended in jars of urine or throwing shoes covered in red paint at a giant picture of former President Bush.  Free speech is for Jon Stewart, Al Franken, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann…not for Rush Limbaugh.  Free speech is for the Dixie Chicks and every Hollywood twit who has yet to figure out that nobody cares what they think…just so long as they look pretty.  And saying anything negative about the messiah, Barack Obama?  That is crossing the line!

“If you had any questions remaining about the war liberals have launched to end conservative talk radio they should be answered by a petition the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee began ‘to show Rush Limbaugh and all of the Republicans what they’re up against if they start attacking President Obama.'”

That’s right…the tolerant, open-minded, free speech crusaders who will defend damn near anything [as long as it is offensive, crude and anti-Republican] are gunning for Rush Limbaugh.  Rush had the audacity to say that he hopes Obama fails.  And I agree with him.  Obama’s policies are counter to the principles that America was founded upon and will have disastrous effects upon our economy and our society as a whole.  Rush has the right to say things like this just as we all do. 

But the Left aren’t content to just live and let live as far as free speech is concerned.  They are going to be pushing hard for the Fairness Doctrine because they want to shut Rush down.  The Fairness Doctrine won’t apply to print media, network tv news, cable tv news or any of the other places that the Left dominates our culture.  It will just muzzle Conservative talk radio.  That’s fair, right?  Of course it’s not fair and the liberal hypocrites know it…they just lack the intellectual honesty to admit it.

Liberal hypocrisy and an inauguration speech: Ann Coulter’s view

Posted by Liberty on January 22, 2009

Have you had it up to here [you can’t see this but my hand is approximately two feet above the top of my head] with the fawning, ridiculous coverage of Obama’s inauguration?  Sounds like you need a little factual information and tongue-in-cheek cynicism from Ann this morning.

More Boos Than Balls

“So maybe liberals can stop acting as if the entire nation could at last come together in a “unity of purpose” if only conservatives would stop fomenting “conflict and discord” — as Obama suggested in his inaugural address. We’re not the ones who booed a departing president.”

Well said.  The way some of those “tolerant” and “open-minded” libs behaved towards President Bush this week was an absolute disgrace.

“Liberals always have to play the victim, acting as if they merely want to bring the nation together in hope and unity in the face of petulant, stick-in-the-mud conservatives. Meanwhile, they are the ones booing, heckling and publicly fantasizing about the assassination of those who disagree with them on policy matters.”

Obama’s approval rating…hmm, how come no pollsters ever call my house?

Posted by Liberty on January 19, 2009

Inauguration: Obama approval rating high

That link will take you to a little blurb in today’s Seattle P-I where they claim that Obama’s approval rating is approximately 76%.  I don’t know why it even grabbed my attention anymore but I saw it and just laughed out loud.  I guess if we’ve elected him President of the United States–unarguably the most powerful position on the planet–based on absolutely no genuine accomplishments and an amorphous agenda of liberalism disguised as a good kind of change, then what the heck!  100% approval rating!  Excellent!  Outstanding!  He’ll probably win 100% of the re-election vote in 4 years, too.

So if this guy isn’t smart enough to fill out a tax form, is he smart enough to be in charge at Treasury?

Posted by Liberty on January 14, 2009

Tax problems may plague Obama’s treasury pick

I hope tax problems plague Obama’s treasury pick!  I know that scrutiny of “the chosen one” and his cabinet appointments is not the hip thing to do right now but seriously folks!  Are we going to forget about the way that the Left in this country treated people appointed by Conservatives?  Bork, Gonzales, Roberts, Alito, Thomas…do those names mean anything to you?  We as Conservatives, not to mention the MSM, should be asking serious questions about Obama [although it’s a little late for that, agreed?!] and the people that he’s choosing for his cabinet.  

“A Capitol Hill grilling is likely for Timothy Geithner, President-elect Barack Obama’s pick to head the Treasury Department, after public revelations he failed to pay $34,000 in taxes several years ago. Senate Democrats are pressing to schedule a quick confirmation hearing for Geithner on Friday, hoping to tee up swift approval of his nomination on Inauguration Day. But newly released information about the tax goofs by Geithner, regarded as a brilliant financial markets specialist well-positioned to deal with the nation’s considerable economic problems, could complicate the process.”

Oops.  $34,000 in unpaid taxes.  Just a little goof!

Inauguration-mania

Posted by Liberty on January 12, 2009

Rush is calling it the “Immaculate Inauguration.”  Michelle Malkin calls it “Inaugur-A-Palooza.”  I think the word “mania” has to apply somewhere to the shameless crap that the MSM is calling “inauguration coverage.”  Michelle Malkin has linked to another blog [http://www.julescrittenden.com/] where there’s a complete compendium of the MSM’s fawning, obsequious, laudatory, self-congratulatory, worshipful,…[insert your favorite applicable adjective <here>] “objective coverage” of the Obamanauguration. 

Inaugur-A-Palooza!
