Two words sum up the mood of the nation: Fed up.

Six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the state of the U.S. economy, more than 70 percent believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, and nearly 80 percent are down on the country’s political system, according to the latest NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll.

“We’re in the summer of our discontent,” said Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff.“Americans are cranky, unhappy… It is with everything going on the world.”

Some of the different examples of signs they’d carry:

“Impeach Obama,” said a female Republican from Ohio.
“Republicans and Congress, do your job,” countered a male Democrat from Kentucky.
“Close the borders,” added a Republican-leaning female from Massachusetts.
“Stop bombing people in Ukraine and Gaza and Israel,” said a male Democrat from Texas.
“Our government needs an overhaul,” said a female independent from Florida.

The discontent’s two main causes

The NBC/WSJ pollsters attribute the wide discontent to the lingering effects of the Great Recession, as well as a loss of faith in the country’s politicians.

Yet because this discontent differs – among Democrats, Republicans, and independents – Hart cautions that Americans still aren't likely to be storming the polls on Election Day in November.

“We’re unhappy, but we aren’t coalescing around an issue,” he said.

Indeed, 57 percent of respondents told pollsters that something upsets them enough to carry a protest sign for a day.

"The public seems have moved beyond the plaintive cry of ‘Feel our pain!’ to the more angry pronouncement of ‘You are causing our pain!’"

And Obama’s favorable/unfavorable rating remains upside down at 40 percent positive, 47 percent negative.

Notice the Marxist media continues to lie and hide the real reasons for the discontent? Among them:
The bankster cartel and the rise of kleptocracy
Nurturing of the parasite class via transfer payments from taxation theft

Up next? Hyper inflation and food shortages. Brace for impact.
Have one to add? Or three?

Pfhuqq the liars in the Marxist media.

The really comical thing about that term is that anyone who uses it exposes themselves as a moron who listens to and believes Rush Limbaugh.

If Obama's Preidency could be compared to a pond,it would be "BIOLOGICALLY DEAD" he's a polluted pond!, and it's dead like his five years creating nothing but uncertainy,and hopelessness...We are weak in the eye's of our enemies,our standing on the world stage is mocked ,things are mounting all over the world ,and the situation here at home is looking just as '"BLEAK".All this President does is either play golf, or goes on a vacation,meanwhile Rome is burning!!......The polls lie,I believe the Nation would love to see Obama be a "MAN" and step down for the sake of the Nation!!........He has failed ,it's time for him to let someone else fix the Nation......

Because "liberals" are listening to NPR while they work. "Conservatives are listening to Rush and Beck while they drink beer on the porch and clean out their toe jam.
