Obama Weekly Approval Average Now 52%, a New Low

President Barack Obama’s most recent weekly job approval rating is 52% for the seven-day period ending on Sunday, similar to the 54% reading from the previous week but down significantly from 59% a month ago. His average disapproval rating during the past week is 41%. In June, Obama maintained approval ratings in the 60% range, roughly twice his disapproval rating. Obama still enjoys a double-digit gap between his average approval and average disapproval scores — 11 percentage points for the week of Aug. 17-23. However, that buffer has shrunk considerably since mid-July, due to diminished support across the board.

Obama Allies Find Words Fail Them

In the rhetorical battle over health care, the forces backing President Barack Obama’s overhaul have spent years polling and using focus groups to find the precise language that would win over voters — an effort that doesn’t at the moment appear to be working. When Mr. Obama told grass-roots organizers last week that the mandatory purchase of health insurance would “be affordable, based on a sliding scale,” the phrasing precisely mirrored language that had been poll-tested and put before batteries of focus groups by Democratic consultants over the past few years.

Air Space Restrictions Disrupt Angel Flights Service After All

Angel Flights, the nonprofit organization which flies people who are critically ill to off-Island medical appointments, has shut down Martha’s Vineyard operations this week, apparently in reaction to flight restrictions in place for the duration of the presidential vacation visit to the Island. The move came despite assurances that special dispensation was made for the mercy flight operators during temporary flight restriction (TFR) orders to protect air space over Martha’s Vineyard from August 23 to 30. Paula Strasser said that the eight to 10 flights scheduled for this week have now been cancelled. [Bad time to get really sick over on Marxist Vineyard…ed]

Letalvis Cobbins found guilty in Christian – Newsom murders

The jury has found Letalvis D. Cobbins guilty of the murders of Channon Christian and her boyfriend, Christopher Newsom, in 2007. Cobbins faces the possibility of the death penalty because he was convicted of facilitation of first degree felony murder in 32 counts. The jury found Cobbins not guilty of five counts including the murder of Newsom during his rape, the murder of Christian during Newsom’s rape and three counts of aggravated rape of Newsom.

HUMMER Dealer Starts Selling Guns to Make Ends Meet

With Hummer sales down more than 60 percent in 2009, and General Motors trying to sell the entire company due to its lackluster performance, one dealer is literally pulling out the big guns to make a buck. The Belleville-News Democrat reports that Jim Lynch Hummer in Chesterfield, Illinois has started selling firearms and ammunition from his showroom to battle the slow economy.

Insulter-In-Chief

“He who wishes to exert a useful influence must be careful to insult nothing.” If Goethe was right, I guess we can give up on President Obama exerting a useful influence. By now he’s insulted just about everything and everyone. I list some of his insults below, in alphabetical order by insultee. Let the healing begin. [Obama’s an arrogant marxist hack.

Obama Attacks CIA to Quell ObamaCare Protests and Establish Secret Police

In December 1917 Bolshevik Russian leaders, including one of the founders of Socialist thuggery Vladimir Lenin, established the Cheka—Russia’s first political secret police. With almost unlimited power, the Cheka implemented “campaigns of terror” against the wealthy, land owners and those who opposed Lenin and Bolshevism. !n 1922, once most of Russia’s opposition to their new absolute rulers had lessened, the Cheka was disbanded. However, under the singularly oppressive Josef Stalin, Cheka was reinstated and ultimately renamed “The People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs” (NKVD) and what would be known as Stalin’s “Great Terror of the 1930s began.

The Justice Dept.’s War On Heroes

Appointing a prosecutor to harass CIA interrogators exposes this administration’s priorities: The global war on terror takes a back seat to terrorizing some of America’s most selfless warriors. If you look closely, you can see insidious attempts to weaken Americans’ post-9/11 resolve to win against Islamist terrorism, no matter what it cost or how long it took. Pentagon staff members were informed a mere two months after President Obama’s inauguration, for instance, that we were no longer engaged in a “global war on terror”; what America was now waging was an “overseas contingency operation.” [Obama and his cronies deliberately trying to destroy this country from within with another one of their distractions.

King on Holder: ‘You wonder which side they’re on’

A “furious” Rep. Peter King, the hawkish, maverick Long Island Republican, blasted a “disgraceful” Eric Holder for opening an investigation of CIA interrogators and chided his own party for what he described as a weak response to the move in an interview just now with POLITICO. “It’s bulls***. It’s disgraceful. You wonder which side they’re on,” he said of the Attorney General’s move, which he described as a “declaration of war against the CIA, and against common sense.” [I’m pretty sure I know which side this gang of marxists occupying our White House are on.

White House projects bigger deficits, bigger debt

The federal government faces exploding deficits and mounting debt over the next decade, White House officials predicted Tuesday in a fiscal assessment far bleaker than what the Obama administration had estimated just a few months ago. Figures released by the White House budget office foresee a cumulative $9 trillion deficit from 2010-2019, $2 trillion more than the administration estimated in May. Moreover, the figures show the public debt doubling by 2019 and reaching three-quarters the size of the entire national economy. Obama economic adviser Christina Romer predicted unemployment could reach 10 percent this year and begin a slow decline next year. Still, she said, the average unemployment will be 9.3 in 2009 and 9.8 percent in 2010. [Double any bad numbers coming out of the Obama administration to get a more accurate picture of reality…ed]

Feingold: No health care bill before Christmas

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold told a large crowd gathered for a listening session in Iron County last week there would likely be no health care bill before the end of the year – and perhaps not at all. It was an assessment Feingold said he didn’t like, but the prospect of no health care legislation brought a burst of applause from a packed house of nearly 150 citizens at the Mercer Community Center. “Nobody is going to bring a bill before Christmas, and maybe not even then, if this ever happens,” Feingold said. “The divisions are so deep. I never seen anything like that.” Feingold reiterated his appraisal a bit later. “We’re headed in the direction of doing absolutely nothing, and I think that’s unfortunate,” he said when asked about the plight of uninsured Americans. The Mercer session was spirited but civil – as Feingold himself accurately described it – with most people focused squarely on the health care issue, followed by the deficit as a runner-up concern.

West Texas field reads: ‘Say no to Obama!’

A former art teacher used his West Texas field to carve out a protest about the Obama administration’s proposed overhaul of the health care system. Sam Bates recently plowed some weeds and left behind the message “Say no to Obama!” that’s best viewed from the air. Bates said he had some “free time” and wanted to offer his unhappiness with what’s been going on in Washington. “This is a sign of frustration,” Bates told KCBD-TV on Monday.

Thomas: Government overspending is national suicide

Remember when the deficit was so bad that Democrats said we (or more accurately the Republicans) were placing a terrible burden on our grandchildren? That was several trillion dollars ago. Democrats now appear perfectly fine with extending the growing deficit and national debt to their great-grandchildren. Perhaps politicians think they will never be held accountable three generations from now because they won’t be around to explain to those not yet born why they refused to stop our financial hemorrhaging.

Court Orders Federal Reserve to Disclose Emergency Loan Details

The Federal Reserve must for the first time identify the companies in its emergency lending programs after losing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Manhattan Chief U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska ruled against the central bank yesterday, rejecting the argument that loan records aren’t covered by the law because their disclosure would harm borrowers’ competitive positions. The Fed has refused to name the financial firms it lent to or disclose the amounts or the assets put up as collateral under 11 programs, most put in place during the deepest financial crisis since the Great Depression, saying that doing so might set off a run by depositors and unsettle shareholders. Bloomberg LP, the New York-based company majority-owned by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, sued on Nov. 7 on behalf of its Bloomberg News unit. “The Federal Reserve has to be accountable for the decisions that it makes,” said Representative Alan Grayson, a Florida Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, after Preska’s ruling. “It’s one thing to say that the Federal Reserve is an independent institution. It’s another thing to say that it can keep us all in the dark.” [A very important ruling by the courts. And while we’re at it how about a thorough audit of the Federal Reserve?…ed]

Peace activist Cindy Sheehan targets Obama’s vacation

Cindy Sheehan, the peace activist who camped out in the summer of 2005 near President Bush’s Texas ranch, is heading for President Obama’s vacation site in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. Ms. Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in the Iraq war, said in a press release Monday that she would hold a press conference Wednesday morning at the Oak Bluff’s Elementary School on the island resort. That is where the White House press corps is working during the president’s vacation. “We need to give the president the moral backbone he needs” to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Sheehan said last week, speaking on MSNBC. Sheehan seeks what she said is “immediate, complete, and as safe as possible withdrawal” from the Middle East. [We’ll see if this loon’s protest shows up on any of the left wing newscasts.

Swine flu could hospitalize 2 million in U.S. this winter

As many as 300,000 could clog intensive care units in heavily affected regions, a new report says. But the CDC director notes that the H1N1 outbreak also could be much milder. Nearly 2 million Americans could be hospitalized during this winter’s novel H1N1 influenza pandemic, with as many as 300,000 clogging intensive care units in heavily affected regions, according to a report released Monday by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. Overall, 20% to 40% of the population could develop symptoms of the strain commonly known as swine flu, and 30,000 to 90,000 could die, according to the report. During a normal flu season, the virus kills about 35,000 Americans.

Quote of the day.

Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you…move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.
