In before the pictures of Bagdad Bob.
Independents no longer trust him. He abused their vote last time around and they know he will use them again.
His Rasmussen approval rating had been in double digits for almost 2 years;today its -4.People are,indeed,gullible.
I saw a poll from Foxnews that showed even though Obama’s approval number had gone up, 52% said they would NOT VOTE TO RE-ELECT him.
Expect the media to go into overdrive trying to convince the nation that everyone loves Obama.
Independent voter is just a fancy name for a wind sock.
Somehow, I don’t think so. Looks like the MSM whistling past the graveyard.
I’m unsure about this.
I have my doubts.
There is still no job creation to speak of.
The deficit is still way too high and our national debt is getting worse by the second and this administration is doing nothing to stop the hemorrhaging.
The democrats have not denounced raising taxes.
The democrats have not denounced big government and their nanny state agenda.
The democrats have not taken any steps to eliminate costly and burdensome regulations governing business.
In short, I seriously doubt independents will drift toward democrats in large numbers given these facts.
Obama’s numbers are up because Republicans cut that stupid deal with him over Christmas-—no tax hikes and no amnesty in exchange for the DADT repeal, the FDA law, and the START treaty, giving him some semblance of a victory when they could have finished him once and for all if they had just waited until January.
Fools. The person in our presidency has been embracing Marxism most of his adult life, sat in a church for over 20 years that preached hatred of America and surrounded himself with fellow Marxists and independents is going to change the way he governs because he cares for the country? Idiots is all I can say. Temporarily he is tacking toward center because his polls were in the toilet and he wants to be the big man on campus again in 2012. That’s it! Anyone can be swayed by his recent comments and actions is smok’in something and doesn’t deserve to vote.
Independent is just another name for a wishy-washy moron who considers himself a deep thinker.
18 months is a lifetime in politics. We’ll see what happens in November.
Oh, for corn sakes.....He hasn’t been on the tube 5 times a day like he was before. THAT’s what is working in his favor.
And that campaign rally in Tucson made the whole even about him. He didn’t do any of his usual shuckin’ and jivin’ in that speech, ‘cause they wanted him to look and sound “fatherly”.
Before Tucson, there were some fractures beginning in the media coverage of the Kenyan. The shooting gave the media the opening they wanted and needed to resurrect his popularity.
I guess they all found jobs in the last month.
If they didn’t, I wouldn’t expect the bounce to last very long.
“Expect the media to go into overdrive trying to convince the nation that everyone loves Obama.”
I expect that. But there’s a darker side to this. Here in the blue part of Ohio, people don’t love Obama, but they see him as the only viable choice. And they like the man. Both of those things make my head hurt, but it’s what I see.
Fickle people should NEVER be allowed anywhere near a voting machine.
With apologies to those who consider themselves “independents” because they hate both parties...
When I hear the term “independent” used by the talking heads on TV (”centrists”, “moderates), I think of those who don’t understand the issues, and have no intent to research them because, well, politics are boring and “why-can’t-we-all-just-get-along” (with a nod to LA’s best known criminal for the quote). They usually vote based on how they “feel’. They gave us BO because he was “stirring” and they “hoped” he would be a good leader and were horrified at what he actually DID. But now? They are so SURE he has learned “something”, and are so willing to give him another chance.
Please God, save us from the oh-so-”reasonable” “moderates” before they sell us and our kids down the river.
I don’t believe a word of this.
