Apparently the old saying … “You can’t fool all of the people all of the time” … is starting to come home to roost for Obama and his sidekicks.
The Rasmussen poll has Obama’s approval dropping to 45 percent, after several weeks at 49 percent. The Zogby poll has it even lower — at 42 percent.
I actually got called by one of these pollsters 2 weeks ago.
Imagine that … after 68 years?
What happened to all that swagger in “WE GOT THE NUMBERS” routine bantered around the WhiteHouse way back when?
Apparently the Obama Team forgot or never knew how fickle “lady fate” actually is?
Will these lost supporters suddenly swing back to Obama’s side?
I say not !
Human nature !
Once someone has been screwed … human nature kicks in and one rants to 100 people that they know and by the end of the “rant spree” their mind is usually set in that negative mode.
This stuff is amazing when one understands the Obama approval ratings have plummeted faster (has he broken a sound barrier yet?) than any president in history from the start of his term. What makes this even more amazing is he cruised into the WhiteHouse with FAR MORE ACCOLADES and good will than any other president in history.
We need to face it people.
Obama is a myth … he is a made up man with nothing holding him up but his puppet master.
Have you ever noticed the lack of “true passion” when he speaks?
Screw the FAKE ELOQUENCE !
Most people will vibe to that basic true passion in another human being.
You may not agree with them but you KNOW AND FEEL the passion.
Who in my life have I seen with this “true passion”?
Ronald Reagan … Sarah Palin … Glenn Beck.
It is not something you can cultivate, buy or fake … it simply is an innate something these people ARE. It makes them stand out in a crowd when they speak … it makes people WANT to follow them.
None of those qualities are possessed by Barack Obama and that is what the public is finally beginning to see.
At what point are the politicians in Washington going to decide to leave a sinking ship … dawn a life jacket and bail out?
Self survival is an interesting thing to watch in real time don’t ya think?
You radical, loony, conspiracy theorists who are terrorizing these poor politicians? … KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ! … YOU ARE gaining a foot hold that will truly in the end change our USA to something it was always suppose to have been.

Most Americans haven’t thought much about the strange entity that controls the nation’s money. They simply accept it as though it has always been there, which is far from the case. Visitors to Washington can see the Fed’s palatial headquarters in Washington, D.C., which opened its doors in 1937. Tourists observe its intimidating appearance and forbidding structure, the monetary parallel to the Supreme Court or the Capitol of the United States.
People know that this institution has an important job to do in managing the nation’s money supply, and they hear the head of the Fed testify to Congress, citing complex data, making predictions, and attempting to intimidate anyone who would take issue with them. One would never suspect from their words that there is any mismanagement taking place. The head of the Fed always postures as master of the universe, someone completely knowledgeable and completely in control.
But how much do we really know about what goes on inside the Fed? With the newest round of bailouts, even journalists have a difficult time running down precisely where the money is coming from and where it is headed. From its founding in 1913, secrecy and inside deals have been part of the way the Fed works.
Part of the public-relations game played by the chairman of the Fed is designed to suggest that the Fed is an essential part of our system, one we cannot do without. In fact, the Fed came about during a period of the nation’s history called the Progressive Era, when the income tax and many new government institutions were created. It was a time in which business in general became infatuated with the idea of forming cartels as a way of protecting their profits and socializing their losses.
I have been long leary of the public networks like Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, YouTube and now Twitter.
When you decide to read the fine print (not many do) it gives these companies quite a bit of latitude in distributing collected information that you have entered.
Than at any moment when the government decides to apply a little muscle what are these networks going to do? Have their livlihood pulled from under them or hand over the goods?
Here is the latest from WND.

The White House is hiring a contractor to harvest information about Americans from its pages on social networking websites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr.
The National Legal and Policy Center, or NLPC, revealed the White House New Media team is seeking to hire a technology vendor to collect data such as comments, tag lines, e-mail, audio and video from any place where the White House “maintains a presence” – for a period of up to eight years.
“The contractor shall provide the necessary services to capture, store, extract to approved formats, and transfer content published by EOP (Executive Office of the President) on publicly-accessible web sites, along with information posted by non-EOP persons on publicly-accessible web sites where the EOP offices under PRA (Presidential Records Act) maintains a presence,” the posting states.
It was hard to get through the last few days without a puke bucket close at hand.
In fact I simply turned off all TV news period.
What has gone wrong with the population?
Edward Kennedy died … well big woop … we all do at some point.
Lets call a spade a spade.
The cold hard truth about Edward Kennedy is simple.
He was a drunk, a philanderer, a liar and probably most important a murderer.
At what point in our evolution did those deep character flaws become acceptable much less GREAT?
More important at what point were they EVER SUPPOSE TO BE acceptable for government office?
Clearly the public who voted him in … and kept voting him in … started dancing with the devil at his first winning a senate seat.
Look at us today … is it any wonder we have reached a point where a group of Communists, Marxist, Fascist and a questionable President are at our helm today?
NOT AT ALL!
WE ALL DESERVE WHAT WE GOT … NOW WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT IT BEFORE IT’S TO LATE?
Forgiving this particular man his sins is GODS job not mine.
I can forgive him for being a weak man who could do nothing better for his own character growth.
I WILL NOT forgive his despicable behavior.
Reality check here:
For those of you willing to eulogize him for being a great person? … maybe you need to take a look at your own character and wonder why someone with his low character caliber is considered “great” by you.
