GfK Poll: Most attuned voters tilt toward GOP

Aug 31, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WAOW

Americans with the strongest opinions about the country's most divisive issues are largely unhappy with how President Barack Obama is handling them, an ominous sign for Democrats hoping to retain control of Congress in the fall elections.

A single mass party, led by one man, which forms the hardcore of the regime and which is typically superior to or intertwined with the governmental bureaucracy. Nobama and the demorat far left.

A system of terror by the police and secret police which is directed against the real and imagined enemies of the regime. Calling for the banning of conservative radio and TV.

A monopolistic control of the mass media.
For close to 50 years the news in America was controlled by ABC, NBC and CBS. In the last 20 years CNN came on to the scene. This is pretty much comparable to the BBC in Europe and AL Jazzera in the Arab world today. It was in the last 6 years when Fox News and other cable news networks were born to give a more balanced approach to news analysis. However, if you look at the major networks today, they are still run by the left. Tim Russert, the President of NBC News, at one time worked for Mario Cuomo. The top players at ABC News are Peter Jennings, George Stephanopolous, Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts- hardly conservatives. Lets not forget the statement the President of ABC News made after September 11th. CBS News has Dan Rather and Bob Schieffer- more non-conservatives. All you have to say about CNN is that it was created by Ted Turner. In print media there is the Los Angeles Times in California, The New York Times in New York and The Atlanta Journal Constitution in Georgia. These have been the major newspapers in our most populous cities for many years and their reporting has a liberal bias.

Central control of the economy. You don't really want to go there.

Sounds like the dems to us.

Flash Back. Major Swing State Now Gone for Obama

From Tom Jensen at Public Policy Polling on Tuesday:“We’ll start rolling out our Ohio poll results tomorrow but there’s one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters there say they’d rather have George W. Bush in the White House right now than Barack Obama.”

In 2008, Barack Obama rolled over John McCain 2,940,044 to 2,677,820.

Using Surber Math, that’s a 262,224-vote margin.

What happened?

The unknown became the known.

Prince Charming turned out to be a frog.

You follow the footsteps of Adolph Hitler who kept saying: "Repeat the same lie enough times and the people will begin to believe it."
The NAZIS were left wing. They were the national socialist labor party - they outlawed citizens from owing guns - they had homosexuals in high positions of government and military - they hated capitalism and the rich - they pushed mass abortions - they executed 30 million white people.
The Italian fascists were left wing: They provided free health care for all - they were made up of mixed race people - they allied with the left wing NAZIS - they were a dictatorship. All left wing traits!

Both parties are big spenders. Difference is the GOP will lie to your face that they won't spend. The Dems tell you they will.
What are the GOP solutions to bring down their debt. NOTHING. At least the Dems plan to raise revenue. You're a FOOL if you believe the GOP are going to cut back on spending. They are WORSE than the Dems in that they spend and don't cover their spending. THAT is the BURDEN your future children will have to pay for. It is THAT same fiscal policy that led us into the recession and you want to COMPOUND on that by giving them the power to do it all over again just as the recession is starting to slow down.

One error in your reply is that I'm not pitching that the GOP is behaving nicely. I'm for voting out any politician that is for huge social programs, more taxes, pork spending and most of all this corrupt bribe as you go legislative process.

I disagree STRONGLY with your view that the Dems are going to raise revenue to cover the costs of their programs. It is already clear that their estimates are out-right lies and inaccurate. Cost and waste will increase.

The current leadership of Dems has had years to improve things and they have gotten worse. Things would actually be better if they had just gotten out of the way!

What would be different in the health care bill if the people who passed it had to have their families on it? There's a reason the congress has its own benefits and a reason they do not send their kids to public schools.

ROFL!! Speaking of traitors....AGAIN....Is Omamba's radical cabinet and czar contingent, aka birds-of-a-feather of the marxist subersive-in-chief -- traitors for being radically whacked?

As democrats are to corruption, Obama is to radicals, marxists, communists, and subversives. But come 2012, Obama's crew of 30+ radical subversives (aka czars) will be looking for work.

But here's the current "American Dream", aka subversive nightmare in the eyes of the subversive Reich Chancellor Omamba. Is anyone really surprised?

Obama's appointed a cabinet and cadre of czars comprised of avowed-communists, pro-abortion, anti-free-speech, anti-gun, anti-free market, anti-business, pro-illegal, wealth redistribution and healthcare-rationing advocates, union bosses, Goldman lobbyists, and inexperienced radicals including Van Jones, Katherine Sebelius, Mark Llloyd, Anita Dunn, Richard Holbrooke, Jeffrey Crowley, Kenneth Feinberg, Earl Devaney, Daniel Fried, John Brennan....

...And Cass Sunstein (Regulatory Czar), the liberal activist judge who stated that "free speech needs to be limited for the common good", while also believing in "Explicit Consent" (harvesting human organs without family consent), and allowing animals to be represented in court, while banning all hunting.

...And union boss Ken Bloom (Manufacturing Czar), who stated that "we all know that the free market is nonsense. We kind of agree with Mao [Tse Tung] that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun".

...And John Holdren (Science Czar) who believes in forced abortions, mass sterilizations and seizing babies from teen mothers.

...And Kevin Jennings (Safe School Czar), a homosexual and organizer of a group called Gay, Lesbian, Straight, and the Education Network who uses taxpayer funds for "Fisting Kits" to teenagers.

Also remember who appointed a radical La Raza activist to the SCOTUS, followed by the incompetent radical leftist Kagan, who believes that government has the right to dictate what Americans can eat, along with government censorship and believing that gun ownership is not a right!

OBAMA's RADICAL CZARS, a partial listing....in 3 consecutive posts....

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists." -- Barack Obama, Dreams From My Father

His communist parents are dead. His communist mentor, Marshall Davis is dead. His marxist, Annenberg Project associate, collaborator, fellow board-member, and joint-speech giver, Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, is merely an covert WH advisor to his marxist agenda, and his racist anti-American pastor Jeremiah Wright is still screaming his hatred for America in between WH visits.

Lucky for him though, the George Soros-founded Joyce Foundation (of which Obama was a board member), which started the far left "Center for American Progress" (CAP) outfit, which Obama also funded, along with MediaMatters, the far-left outfit that funds leftist bloggers, is still going strong. Of course CAP directs Obama's marxist agenda, and was the architect of the $862 billion Stimulus bill, which was outsourced to the Apollo Alliance (another cadre of leftwing radicals based in DC). WH advisor Valerie Jarrett remains on the board of Joyce, from which Obama funneled money to the brother of his fellow Annenberg Project board member, terrorist Bill Ayers.

And especially lucky for him -- as he seeks to ram through his marxist cap & trade energy takeover, Obama was also involved (and invested) in the creation of CCX (the Chicago Climate Exchange), expected to gross $10 TRILLION PER YEAR if cap & trade passes. London-based GIM (Generation Investment Management) is the 5th largest shareholder of CCX, and was founded by Al Gore and a slew of Goldman execs.

And while the alliances and web of corruption, cronyism, collusion, and thuggery goes much, much deeper -- including the associations and alliances of Obama, Soros, Gore, Raines, Podesta, Jarret, Goldman, GIM, and CCX.(It's no accident that Obama's cabinet and radical czar contingent is loaded with former Goldman execs and lobbyists)....

But there's still no shortage of really fun reading for the entire family....

Speaking of "NOT behaving nicely"....I give you Pelosi and the democRATS....in 3 consecutive posts....

Congressional republicans have said HELL NO to the democrats' power-mongering, freedom and liberty usurping, SEIU-driven, Soros/CAP-designed, union-payoff, anti-business, lobbyist, pork-laden, deficit-ruining, marxist-takeover, big-government, irresponsible, unwanted leftist, socialist policies -- all of which are epic failures.

At least the democrats have become the party of YES for backroom deals, bribes, massive spending, massive debt, massive taxes, anti-business policies, government takeovers, freedom and liberty thieving liberal policies, marxism, socialism, fraud, lies, deception, misrepresentation, a disingenuous marxist agenda, CORRUPTION, wealth redistribution, perpetual welfare enslavement, and utter disregard for the security, welfare, soverignity, and future of America and the American way.

All while attacking Americans -- Navy Seals, US veterans, Fox News, capitalism, investors, small business, big business, Wall Street, Republicans, the Tea Party, Arizona, and all genuine Americans who oppose his horrific anti-American marxist agenda -- while he defends the Black Panthers, radical muslim jihadists, Hamas, Iranian mullahs, Hugo Chavez, Mao worshippers, Castro lovers, every labor union extant, trial lawyers, communist and radical-leftist cabinet members and czars, lobbyists, terrorist sympathizers, whacked liberal judges, and illegal fence jumpers.
.
.
And if the government takeovers, 24/7 lies, and a horrific anti-American far-left marxist agenda wasn't enough, here's more....

The democrats have selfishly, partisanly, and intentionally written all legislation and rejected virtually every republican amendment and virtually all republican input on every damned bill since Obumba took office. Last year Chris Dodd was even quoted as saying that the dems were instructed not to accept any republican input.

The dems are adding amendments at 3 AM, convening to vote with short notice, imposing Pelosi's gag rule to stifle debate, and ramming through legislation without providing bills in electronic format or with sufficient time to be read or reviewed, including amendments. It's dishonest, disingenuous, and deceitful.

Here are two videos of that democrat-issued 300 page amendment added at 3:00 AM that wasn't provided in any format for review, just before the dems called for a vote:

Pelosi Censors Republicans -- by Rep. John Carter - 07/16/2009
http://www.shaggybevo.com/forums/viewtopic.ph...

Monday night Democrats voted to shut down the U.S. House Representatives rather than allow a handful of Republican Congressmen to speak on the floor. What could have been so offensive or frightening about our discourse that Speaker Pelosi felt she had to protect her party by gagging free speech in the House?

In fact, we had planned to speak on the lack of transparency of the House since Democrats took control. We had planned to criticize Speaker Pelosi for repeatedly denying Members, the media, and the public to right to read legislation before it was voted on. We were set to discuss House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s statement last week that if his Members were required to read the Democrats’ healthcare reform package before it was voted on, it would fail.

So the Speaker obviously feels that if the public is truly aware of her party’s agenda, they will reject it. She is now making sure the public is kept in the dark by trampling the centuries-old democratic traditions of the House.

What are those traditions? Every day that the House is in session, following the final vote of the day, representatives are allowed the privilege of free speech on the House floor in what is known as “Special Orders.” They may speak for one minute, five minutes, or one hour segments, and must request their time in advance. Time is allocated equally to both parties on a first-come basis.

Since the advent of live C-SPAN coverage of the House, this has provided a national televised outlet for both Republicans and Democrats to speak to the nation on topics they feel were not adequately addressed during regular order in the House, during which the Democrat majority has the parliamentary ability to limit debate and speeches.

Special Orders therefore frequently serves as a political safety valve if the party in the majority becomes too dictatorial during debate, using their majority status to truly oppress the minority’s ability to debate and offer amendments.

That is now the case in the House, with the Democrat majority under Pelosi repeatedly rejecting House rules to ram a far-left agenda through before the public has time to learn what is actually in the bills.

This is what we were committed to bring to public light.

House rules require a bill be publicly posted for three days before it can be voted on. That basic rule was written by none other than Thomas Jefferson as part of the original rules package of the House, as it is essential to the survival of representative democracy.

The House can waive that rule if it chooses on specific occasions. The Republican-controlled House chose to waive it when considering the Patriot Act in 2001 following the terror attacks of 9-11. They thought there was enough of a national defense emergency to just bring the bill to the floor for a vote.

But Nancy Pelosi and her House Democrats have chosen to ignore the rule on every major issue taken up by the House this year, including:

• The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act - The Obama Stimulus: This one just had to pass that very day because time was a-wastin’ in getting those new jobs coming. We couldn’t wait for Members to read it. But then the President waited four days to sign it into law while he spent the weekend in Chicago, and months later none of the new jobs have come into existence.

• The Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization (SCHIP): Speaker Pelosi couldn’t wait on this one either, although the deadline for reauthorization was still two months away.

• The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act: Lilly was peddled as covering decades-old wage discrimination cases, but after waiting 20 years, Congress couldn’t wait one more day to let Members actually read the thing. The bill is still stuck in the Senate Committee

• The Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009: No excuses at all on this one. They just didn’t want the details known.

• The Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009: This one has been languishing since last October, but we suddenly had to pass it that day.

• The AIG Bonus Tax Act: This had to get through right then, don’t mind the details, we just had to go after those bonuses. Only when we read what passed after the fact, the bill contained waivers for all of the same executives the bill was supposed to reign in, many with curiously close ties to Treasury Secretary and tax cheat Tim Geithner.

• The Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2009: No rush whatever on this one time-wise, the Democrats just didn’t want people talking about the hundreds of billions given to foreign banks that should have gone to our troops.

• The American Clean Energy and Security Act/National Cap-and-Trade Energy Tax: No excuse was offered on this one, the Speaker just didn’t want anybody reading Henry Waxman’s 300 page amendment he sneaked in overnight before we were forced to vote. Three weeks later, the Senate shows no intention of taking up the bill before the opening day of dove season, if then.
.
.
There’s a reason all these bills are listed. The list constitutes every major policy bill undertaken by Congress this year. House Democrats are not just waiving the three-day rule -- they have destroyed it, and are intentionally pushing their agenda to the floor with blindfolds on the media and the public.

This constitutes an astonishing and chilling acceleration of the assault on representative democracy that began in earnest this January.

Representative democracy works when a U.S. Representative listens to the input of their constituents, and votes the way the majority of their district would vote. Only a Representative can’t listen if no one has ever seen the bill, or had time to provide input. They have to vote blind, which for too many, is voting the way their leadership tells them.

This is what Republican House Members were going to the floor to say Monday night. We were set to decry the loss of openness in the House.

Instead, we were met with a slammed door by Democrats, who are now committed to burying truth along with democracy.

The Democrats are the majority -- for now. They chose to silence debate on the floor by gagging House Republican Members from using their historical right to speak after the close of the day. But they cannot stop us from speaking outside the halls of Congress and letting the American public know the truth about their ongoing attack against the very foundations of a free Republic.

The Messiah himself alluded to his messianic deeds, parting the waters, lowering the mountains etc. and don't foret what Calypso Louis Farrakhan actually called Obama, the Messiah, so it is nothing I made up. You never seem to have heard any of his speeches from the campaign. He was so conviencing. Now he is an ordinary man, not quite ready for prime time. Thanks to millions of idiots we are stuck with him for another couple years. So I will refer to him as he wants to be known, the Messiah.

In her book "Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies"....Michelle Malkin has stated that there's not ONE INCH of Obama's administration that isn't rife with corruption.
http://www.amazon.com/Culture-Corruption-Chea...

Barack Obama’s approval ratings are at an all-time low. A recent Gallup poll found that half of the Americans polled said Obama did not deserve a second term. Weary of the corruption that gushes from the White House faster than a Gulf Coast oil spill, voters are ready to put a cap on smear campaigns, pay-to-play schemes, recess appointments, and Chicago politics.
In the updated paperback edition of her #1 ,em>New York Times bestselling book Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies, Michelle Malkin says,“I told you so,” citing a new host of examples of Obama’s broken promises and brass knuckled Chicago way.

Culture of Corruption proves once again this isn’t just any politics. It’s “boodle”-clogged, dissent-squelching, redistributive Chicago politics. The 2010 elections promise to be an anti-corruption referendum for the history books.“After all,” Malkin says “You can’t reform corruptocrats, but you can vote them out.” New revelations in the updated Culture of Corruption:

How Obama has declared war on independent government whistleblowers—with unannounced firings, smear campaigns, and forced silence—when their findings expose his political allies. How First Lady Michelle Obama’s campaign against childhood obesity is less about reducing our youths’ waistlines and more about swelling SEIU coffers with nearly 400,000 new food service workers. How, despite the exposure of ACORN’s illegal practices and subsequent defunding, ACORN still remains—and why the Obama White House remains tight-lipped on the future of ACORN. How Obama is using recess appointments to install politicos when both Democrats and Republicans have torpedoed the nominations. How the White House is manipulating key races across the country, including endorsing such candidates as Alexi Giannoulias—a mob-linked, scandal-tainted banker from Obama’s hometown.

Powerful, damning, and comprehensive, the paperback edition of Culture of Corruption reveals the ever-growing mountain of sleaze and self-dealing that the Obama administration would rather you not know.
