The day of reckoning has finally arrived. Nationally, today is our day to send a very clear message to Obama and his Democrat pals in Washington. Locally, today is our day to send a very clear message to Cadillac Deval and his corrupt, hack Democrat pals on Beacon Hill.
In case you had forgotten (as if) here are a few reasons to get out vote, courtesy of Moe Lane:
Now, some of you (more of you, I suspect, than are willing to admit it) read the paragraph above, read the article that it links to, and then started to feel… pity. Or empathy, because it happened to you in 2006 and 2008. Or merely a natural desire to not kick someone when they are down. And those are laudable impulses to have. But before you act on those impulses with regard to these professional Democrats, please remember this:
- These people told their clients to say that you hate African-Americans.
- These people told their clients to say that you hate Latinos.
- These people told their clients to say that you hate gays.
- These people told their clients to say that you hate women.
- These people told their clients to say that you hate Jews.
- These people told their clients to say that you hate Muslims.
- These people told their clients to say that you hate the poor.
- These people told their clients to say that you hate America.
Shall I continue?
- These people told their clients to say that you were fascists.
- These people told their clients to say that you were theocrats.
- These people told their clients to say that you were stupid.
- These people told their clients to say that you were uneducated.
- These people told their clients to say that you were hatemongers.
- These people told their clients to say that you were insane.
- These people told their clients to say that you were violent extremists.
I can keep this going for quite a while, you know.
- These people told their clients to call you unpatriotic.
- These people told their clients to call you cowards.
- These people told their clients to mock you at every opportunity.
- These people told their clients to deliberately use a sexual slur when referring to you.
- These people told their clients to trivialize and dismiss your concerns at every opportunity.
And now these professional Democrats are sad because they’re going to lose. Well, they deserve to lose. Because they’re bad people. And because the entire point of the United States of America is to make sure that bad people lose. So go vote on Tuesday, and make as many bad people as possible lose.
Locally, how can anyone forget Deval’s Cadillac, his $10,000 drapes, his wife’s social secretary, the doling out of six figure jobs to his Milton neighbors, the attempt to plant a hack pol pal into a six figure job which had been vacant for twelve years, his broken promise to lower your property taxes, his broken promise to hire 1000 new police officers, his dismantling of the program that allows State Troopers to work with ICE to enforce our nation’s immigration laws, his support of drivers’ licenses for illegals, his support of in-state tuition for illegals, the refusal to let the citizens of Massachusetts vote on marriage, the 25% increase on the sales tax to 6.25% – including already taxed alcohol – and all the while local aid has been cut and your taxes keep going up.
It’s finally November…it’s time to remember.
This is the third poll in less than two weeks which continues to show Obama’s numbers tanking. His approval rating – at just 43% – is at an all-time low in this poll.
UPDATE: This just-released CBS poll shows even more dismal numbers for Obama with just 40% having confidence in him as a leader.
Public confidence in President Obama has hit a new low, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll. Four months before midterm elections that will define the second half of his term, nearly six in 10 voters say they lack faith in the president to make the right decisions for the country, and a clear majority once again disapproves of how he is dealing with the economy.
Regard for Obama is still higher than it is for members of Congress, but the gap has narrowed. About seven in 10 registered voters say they lack confidence in Democratic lawmakers and a similar proportion say so of Republican lawmakers.
Overall, more than a third of voters polled — 36 percent — say they have no confidence or only some confidence in the president, congressional Democrats and congressional Republicans. Among independents, this disillusionment is higher still. About two-thirds of all voters say they are dissatisfied with or angry about the way the federal government is working.
But you keep on golfing and flying around the country to ‘help’ Democrats running for reelection, Barry.
This time the bad news for Barry & Co. comes from an NBC/Washington Post poll released yesterday.
For the first time in the survey, more disapprove of his job performance than approve; for the first time in his presidency, more than 60 percent believe the country is on the wrong track; and as he relieves Gen. Stanley McChrystal of his command in Afghanistan, Obama’s scores on being able to handle a crisis and on being decisive have plummeted since last year.
In the poll, Obama’s job-approval rating stands at 45 percent, which is down five points from early last month and down three points from late May.
What’s more, Obama’s favorable/unfavorable rating is now at 47 percent to 40 percent, down from 49 percent to 38 percent in early May and 52 percent to 35 percent in January.
His scores on other ascpects of the presidency also have declined. In April 2009, 54 percent gave the president high marks for being able to handle a crisis; now it’s 40 percent.
In July 2009, 57 percent gave him high marks for being decisive and for his decision-making; now it’s 44 percent.
And also in July 2009, 61 percent gave him high marks for having strong leadership qualities; now it’s 49 percent.
In the survey — which was conducted after Obama’s fourth visit to the Gulf last week, after his Oval Office address on the spill, and after getting BP to agree to a $20 billion escrow account to help pay for relief — 50 percent say they disapprove of Obama’s handling of the spill, while 42 percent approve.
After last month’s disappointing jobs report (in which the economy added just 41,000 private-sector jobs), only 33 percent believe the U.S. economy will get better in the next 12 months. That is a seven-point drop since May.
In addition, 62 percent say the country is headed in the wrong direction, which is its highest point in Obama’s presidency.
The Republican Party has a major advantage in the fall, and this poll just reconfirms that,” Hart said.
Moreover, 32 percent say their vote this November will be a signal of opposition for Obama, versus 27 percent who say it will be a signal of support for him. That’s a reversal from January, when 37 percent said their vote would be in support for the president, while 27 percent said it would be in opposition.
All signs lead to a bloodbath for the Democrats this fall.
