Btw, if you drove at all this summer you'd know $4 gas hasn't stopped anyone from driving. The difference between $2 gas & $4 gas is a cup of Starbucks coffee (or a pack of cigarettes or a 6-pack of beer) per day.
There is a growing sentiment that America should disband Congress and give The Obama the power to rule by Devine Right. This could be so much easier for us all. Stop all this fighting and know your place in society.

Obama knows best! A government with "representative" govt with Checks and Balances impedes HIS ability to LEAD us into a Brave New World for America

Obama, our Dear Leader, is The Truth and The Light.

Yes, la la, the people were paying attention to the republicannot candidate who jumped in with both feet in his mouth and came over as disrespectful, ignorant, partisan, uninformed and unpatriotic and pandering frightwinger:
The new poll found that, of those Americans who had paid attention to the protests, riots and killing of Americans in recent days, 45% approved of Obama’s moves, while 36% disapproved. Judgments of Romney were far more negative, with only 26% approving and 48% disapproving.
Romney came under fire even from Republicans last week when he condemned Obama for what he said was apologizing to and sympathizing with “those who waged the attacks.” He based that on a statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo that did not apologize and was released during protests but before any attacks had been made.

Facts are hard to spin aren't they?
Here are some 'facts' for you.

The Huffington Post has been tracking polls based on party identification.

When you spot Obama several percentage points in most every poll is it any wonder he comes out ahead?

btw, your LA Times story cited a Pew poll. Take a look at how lopsided their party ID's break out. They top out Republicans at 24%(looking back through March).

Commence your spinning.

i.e. The obama media used what Romney said about Libya to overshadow the incompetence of b. h. obama and hilliary clinton…The fact is what Romney said was ahead of the curve all while obama and hilliary were asleep at the wheel thus 4 Americans are dead and the media is silent…Capice?
Voters should demand disband Congress. Congress is old fashioned white man stuff. Obama doesn't need their help running America.

The only thing these "supposd" bills did was to eliminate regulations (I happen to like clean water and air), lower taxes even further, but show one specific bill that would in fact generate jobs.
Just one bill the CBO rates would in fact create jobs.
They have to be passed moron before they can be rated........jeeebeebus, how many packs of smokes do you get to vote.

There is a reason they percentage up for dems, if you can't understand how that works, then stop quoting numbers you don't understand.

Even the conservative Rasmussen, who before 08 was a very accurate polling organization, but during the 2010 midterms showed that they had increased their bias by a huge margin, missing over 55 repub polls high, by over 5%, and only missing 12 dem candidate polls high, all by less than 3% or the margin of error.

And their model still gives dems extra points, much due to the contact ability of the bases that Obama has significant leads in.

Polls are biased, yes, but just because they bias up for dems, doesn't mean they are inaccurate.

So keep your spin.

Total BS once again you fcuking moron! The CBO stated emphatically that Obama's Jobs Bill would have created 1.2 million jobs were it enacted;

http://www.politicalhotwire.com/economy-busin...

"NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- The Democrats' proposed tax on millionaires would raise an estimated $453 billion, more than enough to pay for President Obama's jobs bill.

That's the latest from the Congressional Budget Office, which on Friday released its cost and revenue estimates for the American Jobs Act of 2011.

The bill calls for $447 billion in new and extended tax cuts along with additional spending on infrastructure, jobs training and housing help among other things.

On net, the legislation would reduce deficits by $6 billion over the next decade.

Earth to idiot.....The CBO only rate based on what they are given by the administration.........not that it's accurate. Cooking the books and numbers is common among the team Obama. Raines made 19 million in bonus in three years cooking the Fannie Mae books.

We can read everything in any bill up for passage in the house or senate.

Aaaaahhh my pickle smooching fcking moron.

The CBO…..bwaaaa ha ha

Ha

Ha

Ha

Ha

Ha

The CBO is the lemming of which-ever party is in power at the time. The CBO uses a particular method to devise its estimated called “static scoring”. Unlike its counterpart “dynamic scoring”, the static method assumes that the only circumstances that will change are those changed by whatever piece of legislation the CBO scores. It doesn’t take economic growth into account, nor normal and roughly predictable human behavior.

Static scoring is the CBO’s attempt to make a certain economic prediction by eliminating all the uncertainties of normal human reactions. That may make economists happy, but it also makes their estimates useless to Americans. keep on drinking that kool-aid FOOL!
