Obama's approval ratings are plumetting. That is the big talk and there is a lot of infighting within the Democrat party between Democrats and radical liberal Democrats.
Talk is cheap, EagleSmack. Put up some numbers. According to latest poll I saw on CNN, Obama’s approval rating was around 56%, comparable to what Bush and Clinton had at this point in time (I think CNN said that it was slightly higher than that for Clinton, but I am not sure).
Anyway, what does your Republican pollster, Rasmussen says? Has Obama sunk lower than Bush’s all time low (low 20s) yet?
Still yearning for the Bush days are you?
EagleSmack, you mean you are not? I thought Bush days were the glory days, the golden age of USA (before the Dark Ages started with the election of Obama).
Nah... the glory days were with Reagan.
Dark Ages? That's your opinion.
I am enjoying watching the infighting between the Liberals and Democrats. It was a treat watching them stumble at every Town Hall Meeting.
They did not stumble, the extreme right made fools of themselves at the Town Hall meeting. I remember seeing a CNN poll which said that the disgusting, threatening antics of far right clowns actually made people more sympathetic to Obama’s health care reform proposal.
Anyway, yesterday Barnie Franks showed the proper way to deal with the trouble makers, the rent a mob yahoos. He did not pull any punches; he went after an extreme right wingnut with full force in his Town Hall meeting.
So Mulroney and the Conservatives can act against the wishes of the people but Obama and the Democrats can't? Careful, your bias is showing.
I’m not sure what you mean.
I said that I don’t believe that the president is acting against the wishes of the people, and I said that I thought that the prime minister was.
How can Congress “ram something through against the will of the people”? Unless I am mistaken, both the Senate and the House of Representatives were selected by the people of the United States themselves.
I remember seeing a CNN poll which said that the disgusting, threatening antics of far right clowns actually made people more sympathetic to Obama’s health care reform proposal.
It's irrelevant how it is done. The point is that it can be done. We could sit here all day pointing out times when politicians went against the population (unless, of course, you believe that George Bush acted in complete accordance with the wishes of the American people) but I know you would twist it in a way that shows that Liberals are good and Conservatives are bad.
He was booed and laughed at throughout no matter how immature he acted. You think the people were going to let Barney continue to spout off his liberal agenda.
Really EagleSmack? You live in Massachusetts, so are you ready to make a prediction that Barney Frank will be defeated in 2010?
If you think that people laughed and booed at him, then you should confidently be able to predict that he will lose in 2010? Do you dare to make such a prediction?
Could it be that only the right wing extremists, Republican far right base, Linden La Rouch supporters (I understand quite a few of them were present at the meeting, warmly welcome by the far right Republican nut cases) were the only ones who booed?
Are you saying that Frank’s constituency has turned against him? If so, then you should be confidently be able to predict that he will lose in 2010. Will you make that prediction? I will hold you to it.
Cannuck, any legislation passed by the United States Congress using normal channels is consented to by a majority of representatives, therefore representing a majority of American voices. Therefore, such decisions are made with a mandate and with the consent of the American people. I have aready discussed how the circumstances surrounding the GST implementation by Mr. Mulroney were unique, no amount of dancing is going to change that on your part.
So you are saying that everything George Dubya did was in accordance with the wishes of the American people? You are embarrassing yourself.
Perhaps we should review the separation between the executive and legislative branches of government.
I'm talking about who really is to blame, not who you wish was to blame. Americans believing it was Bush doesn't make it so.
Really, Extrafire? And who decides who is to blame, do you decide that? Now, we know that you don’t think Bush is to blame, and you are entitled to your opinion. But that doesn’t mean everybody has to agree with you. In my opinion, Bush and the Republicans shoulder the lions’ share of the blame.
