After a campaign spewing misogyny and stirring up sexism, Obama on Saturday tried to bamboozle with an oddly timed “Women’s History Month” dump of words. On Friday, it was a publicity stunt with the Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks. Americans know a lot is wrong:
“Confidence in the U.S. system of government has dropped to a new low in more than 35 years, with public attitudes burdened by continued economic discontent, soaring gasoline prices, record opposition to the war in Afghanistan — and a letdown in hopes for political progress after a bout of bipartisanship last fall.
Only 26 percent of Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say they’re optimistic about “our system of government and how well it works,” down 7 points since October to the fewest in surveys dating to 1974. Almost as many, 23 percent, are pessimistic, the closest these measures ever have come. The rest, a record high, are “uncertain” about the system.”
False hope, like a fast car without brakes, eventually leads to kissing the brick wall of reality.
“Support for repeal of the national health care law has reached its highest level since May of last year. The number of voters who believe the plan will increase the cost of care has tied its highest level since the law’s passage last March.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 62% favor repeal of the health care law, including 51% who Strongly Favor it. Only 33% of voters oppose repeal, with 24% who are Strongly Opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Support for repeal is at a 10-month high, with the number that Strongly Favors repeal at its highest level to date.”
It’s not just Obama’s health scam that might get repealed:
Hillary Is 44's mouth to God's ears. Life would be so much better without ObamaCare. Ann took on the increasingly stupid John Conyers with "Someone needs to retire" last night. Conyers -- who damn well should know better -- is trying to spin ObamaCare as something good.
Conyers has spent how many years, how many decades, advocating for universal single-payer? And he wants us to believe that the corporatist give away known as ObamaCare is a good thing?
Well he thought he could play the okey-doke on us with impeachment of Bush too, remember?
All that, "I will impeach." And he lied. He was cowed by Pelosi.
Then to save face, he started insisting that he could impeach after Bush was out of office and that he would.
And nothing came of that either.
John Conyers has been caught in one too many lies and now that he's over 80-years-old, it's really past time for him to retire.
