  • Obama's Polls Keep Hitting New Lows [Edit or Delete]0 comments
    Feb 11, 2012 2:35 PM
    A breaking Rasmussen & Fox poll now puts Obama's positive approval rating at just 41%, an all time low and a sharp decline from 53% a couple weeks ago. This is attributed to continuing fallout of the Catholic Church contraception mandate, Susan G Komen, Clint Eastwood super bowl propaganda/ad, and lingering questions over the veracity of the birth certificate.

    With his rant against bitter small towns people, Obama has not only lost the white hard-working vote, but now the religious vote, Clint Eastwood vote, and the Susan G. Komen vote. Things are spiraling out of control.

    We can be thankful that Bernanke is still running the economy. He's really competent as opposed to Obama who would rather declare class warfare, spread the wealth and soak the rich than create wealth. Michelle Obama is still wearing the drapes, still shopping for clothes at bed bath and beyond.

    Since March 2009, stocks keep making new highs, profits & earnings keep beating estimates quarter after quarter, still no banking relapse since TARP, Facebook worth $100 billion, twitter worth $40 billion, Groupon and Zynga have gone public. You got to give Bernanke credit where credit is due; these bank bailouts and monetary intervention in the form of QE2 & QE3 were a resounding success.

    According to a CNBC poll, Most Americans attribute this three-year stock market & economic boom to the efforts of Bernanke, Geithner, Paulson, and George W. Bush while only a fraction give Obama any credit, and rightfully so. Even Warren Buffet snubbed Obama in his infamous New York Times op-ed, praising Bernanke, Congres and Bush for their expediency and resolve.

    The same poll showed that vast majority (84%) of Americans also Give George W. Bush credit for the killing of Osama Bin Laden, not Obama. Obama is wrongfully taking credit for the 7+ years of intelligence work under the prior administration, and not surprisingly voters aren't buying it.

    Osama/Obama name confusion is hurting Obama in swing states

    76% of Americans feel LESS safe after OBL killing

    Sometimes, in a free market capitalist system you need job loss, or more specifically structural unemployment, in order to increase productivity, innovation and profits. The short and long term pain for main street is necessary, but when wall st. , does well, the prosperity sometimes trickles down and benefits everyone.

    The stock market is slapping the wealth spreaders across the face as the NASDAQ posts 11-year highs. No stopping productivity & exports, no stopping large cap tech, no stopping web 2.0, no stopping GDP, no stopping consumer spending, no stopping profits & earnings.

    According to the WSJ we're going have nosebleed living cost inflation and pain at the pump 2 the extreme. Let's max out the credit card to fill up the tank. Let's keep buying stocks.
