President Barack Obama retains a big lead over possible Republican rivals in the 2012 election despite anxiety about the economy and the country’s future, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll on Wednesday. Obama’s approval rating inched up 1 percentage point from May to 50 percent but the number of Americans who believe the country is on the wrong track also rose as pricier gasoline, persistently high unemployment and a weak housing market chipped away at public confidence. via matzav.com
The people we know are not winning candidates, but most people don’t know the new people… go figure. easy fix
To merge popular dissent into a vision of independence. A vision that enlarges rather than diminishes. Outrage is enough for a populist backlash in a midterm election. But outrage alone won’t see us through. Neither will all the criticisms of Obama. Every rebellion has to give way to a vision of a better nation. And it must transcend the personal ambitions of its leaders, but not the personal grievances of its people.
Haim Saban, who is believed to be the largest donor to the Democratic party, will not donate money to President Obama’s re-election campaign, because of the President’s stand on Israel (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
“I’m very perplexed as to why the president, who’s been to Cairo, to Saudi Arabia, to Turkey, has not made a stop in Israel and spoken to the Israeli people,” he continued. “I believe that the president can clarify to the Israeli people what his positions are on Israel and calm them down. Because they are not calm right now.”
Saban is not alone
…this can’t be a close race. If it’s a close race, then we can go home now. There was extensive voter fraud last time around. There will be plenty of it this time too. Unless Obama loses by Ahmadinejad numbers, he will win. If he can’t win when the polls close, he’ll win in the courts. And remember what the media did last time around. They’ll do it this time around too…via sultanknish.blogspot.com
Sounds to me like Obama has all the advantages, but this is no usual situation. The man has been a failure in every aspect. The last election was close… the danger is the GOP will run a candidate who reflects the worst policies of Obama, especially in the Mid East. Also… this time around it will be a safe bet that Obama will have to show his birth certificate. McCain was a gentleman, but a few candidates will come forward who will point out the hypocrisy of a sitting President who is afraid to show his birth certificate. I’m also betting on a few other surprises. It has always been suspect to me what Obama did in Pakistan after he dropped out of college. I do believe there was a war going on in Afghanistan at the time. It was always curious how Obama suddenly had money to pay for the Ivy League from the Saudis after being a drugged out dropout that left the country.

…does anyone see the spin difference? Look at Rasmussen and the Strongly Disapprove… that is very different then the merely Disapproval of the Guardian:
Opinion surveys show US voters are split over Obama. A Real Clear Politics average of several polls showed 47.4% of Americans approving of his performance in office and 46.6% disapproving. via guardian.co.uk
Nader: Impeach Obama for War Crimes or Something….
Obama has now joined some of the most notorious war criminals of our era, the vil Bush and Cheney.
Get Ralph some decaf.
Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader says that President Obama should be impeached for committing war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The consumer advocate and former presidential candidate said in an interview that aired Friday that Obama has committed “war crimes” on the same level as President Bush.
“Why don’t we say what’s on the minds of many legal experts; that the Obama administration is committing war crimes and if Bush should have been impeached, Obama should be impeached,” Nader said in an interview with the anti-war Democracy Now! organization.
Nader’s comments came before the U.S. launched military strikes into Libya on Saturday but are among the toughest criticisms Obama has endured from the left.
Obama claims the glass as half empty without stating a correlative truth that the glass can fill itself.
Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com ….He just can’t stop lying.
Each time Obama tells the truth, but the truth misleads. The final example towards the end of the video is the most interesting. Obama points out that America is two percent of the world’s crude, but the potential is there for America to be Seventeen percent of the world’s crude and therefor America could be completely self sufficient.
