The following article must have the Obama administration in "Oh You-Know-What" mode. I'm sure he and his staff are scrambling to try to do damage control. One of the things they and the rest of the liberal left are doing is demonizing the protests against the health care legislation being considered in Congress. The article was written by Scott Rasmussen and posted today on the RASMUSSEN REPORTS. There are some interesting poll numbers in this article that must have Obama and the rest of the leftist Democrats sweating like the proverbial pig.
"Seventy-one percent (71%) of U. S. voters say President Obama's policies have increased the size of the Federal deficit."
"Only five percent (5%) say the president's policies have cut the deficit, and 10% say they have had no impact. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure."
Wow! Almost three-quarters of U.S. voters! Obama being responsible for increasing the size of the Federal deficit has always been a no-brainer, but it seems people are now paying attention. This is really bad news for Obama. Can't blame Bush anymore when you consider that the Obama administration and the Democrat dominated Congress have run up the deficit more in six months than the Bush administration did in eight years.
"Not surprisingly, 88% of Republicans blame the president's policies, compared to 52% of Democrats. But 79% of voters not affiliated with either party agree."
Over half of the Democrats agree that Obama has driven up the Federal deficit. Really bad news for the Obama administration and the liberal Democrats in Congress.
An interesting statistic is that even though 54% blame the recession that began under the Bush administration for our current economic problems, but get this: 39% say our economic troubles are Obama's fault. More bad news for Obama.
Let's keep going: 37% cutting the Federal deficit in half over the next four years is number one among four of Obama's priorities, but 66% view it as a goal he is unlikely to achieve.
Nearly have think cuts in government spending helps the economy. Even more bad news for Obama considering his excessive deficit spending policies.
And the last one I'll cover here: "54% of U.S. voters say TAX CUTS (emphasis mine) are more important than new spending for health care reform." People may be starting to realize that tax cuts increase Federal revenue and boost the economy. I think this is also an indicator people are fed up with the tax burden, and the threat of INCREASING TAXES to pay for Obamacare should it pass. So much for 95% of middle class Americans getting a tax cut as Obama insisted during his campaign.
The 2010 elections are coming . . . and so are we the voters. We're not forgetting, and as I have said before, we are NOT going away. Congress better start listening to us now. The thunder of dissent is growing . . .
