Must-See Graph: Hispanics
Abandoning the President
in Droves?

Town Hall, by Daniel Doherty

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 12/5/2013 5:08:06 PM

Last December President Obama boasted a 53 percent (average) approval rating. Eleven months later, however, only 41 percent on average now approve of the job he’s doing as president -- a remarkable reversal. Millennials, in other words, mustn’t be the only ones losing faith in their president. As it happens, so are Hispanics, non-whites, moderates, the poor, and just about everyone else: [graph] Obamacare aside, perhaps one reason why the president’s approval ratings are plummeting is because Americans´ distrust of the president is growing. And public relations "blunders" like these aren’t going to change their minds.

Comments:
Other than the long chart - that´s the entire text. I´m really surprised he has as much support at this shows.

If we can stay focused, on not get distracted by things like the web site glitches and minimum wage debates we might just turn the tide here.

His two most cherished groups singles and woment take a dive, but Barry could care less. Only Democrats running for re-elction and Dingy Harry who wants to remain leader of the Senate cares about this.

Foreign born citizens who owned small businesses imagined that Obama was going to have the government take on the burden of paying for their employees´ and family´s medical care ~ like back where they came from.

They were anticipating magnificent jumps in their profits!

Well, they screwed up. They may have passed the citizenship test but they didn´t get a good grasp of how American government operates.

It´s a federal system. It´s divided. It´s limited. Obama is a liar (but he knew the foreigners could be suckered in)

Finally once they found out how bad ObamaKKKare was and what it would do to them ~ NO MORE PROFITS FOR YOU ~ they began to notice that the man was talking through his hat AND he´d lied to them since day 1.

It´s likely the foreign born small business owners will abandon the Democrats. If we´re lucky they´ll stop voting at all ~ they simply don´t know enough about this society to do it right.

We used to say in the service, "Don´t mess with my woman, my mail or my money." Obama went straight for everybody´s wallet and now people get it. Now they know what "spread it around" means - viz, that he´s gonna take it from YOU and spend it any way he wants. Send Michelle and the girls to N. Korea for still another vacation. Buy his own golf course. Give another $100b to the unions.

ObamaCare was a predictable disaster. But of course Obama had no clue that you don´t mess with people´s wallets. Money´s always been easy come, easy go to him and Meesh. Neither ever had to EARN what they got. Hence he had no way to know how touchy people get when he sticks his hand into their back pocket.

Prolly better than sticking it in our front pockets, though.

It´s not just the folks who´ve lost their insurance either. Or, the "5%" who purchase their own insurance.

Our company just had open enrollment, like many others, I presume, and most people saw a sizable increase in the amount they have to pay each month, and they saw an increase in deductible, and increase in the co-pay.

More out-of-pocket expenses for little extra coverage.
Less to spend on discretionary items - businesses take note.

Add-in the extra they´re paying for gasoline, heating oil, electricity, groceries which are all items the liberal Democrats attack with the EPA and environmental lawsuits.

Sugar not only makes you fat, it may be killing you. Consuming too much added sugar — in regular soda, cakes, cookies and candy — increases your risk of death from heart disease, according to a new study, the largest of its type. "The risk of cardiovascular disease death increases exponentially as you increase your consumption of added sugar," says the study´s lead author, Quanhe Yang, a senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Former President Bill Clinton is the “liar” the public is most able to forgive nearly two decades after his affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky, according to a new poll. According to a CBS-Vanity Fair poll, 43 percent of people said they are most able to forgive Clinton among a list of other famous people who have lied to the public. The survey asks “which liar are you most able to forgive” — listing Clinton along with cyclist Lance Armstrong, former President Richard Nixon and Bernie Madoff, who defrauded his investment clients out of billions of dollars in a

Kansas files brief supporting Hobby Lobby

TOPEKA — Kansas has filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Hobby Lobby Inc., an Oklahoma-based retail chain challenging the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that employers cover emergency contraceptives. Hobby Lobby founder and CEO David Green, a Christian, has objected to the regulation based on his religious principles. The Kansas Attorney General’s Office said the issue is not contraceptives but religious liberty. In a statement, Attorney General Derek Schmidt said the Constitution protects businesses that want to base policies on religious teachings. “This is true whether it is the [plaintiffs in this case] operating their businesses

MOSCOW — At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.” More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian Orthodox Church hurl the same allegation at the West. “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a recent keynote speech. “Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in

Liberals are really pushing raising the minimum wage for 2014. Thirty states have put forward bills to increase it, and Democrats have made this issue part of their political strategy for this year. Yet, a new study from the Employment Policies Institute (EPI) has exposed the proponents of raising the minimum wage of their "hypocrisy." It seems that 96% of Democrats who support such measures don´t pay their interns. The abstract of the EPI study noted that "the same Members of Congress who are supporting a 40% wage hike on private sector employers are simultaneously failing to provide any wages

TAMPA, Fla. -- A Florida man who admitted to disguising abortion pills as antibiotics was sentenced Monday to 13 years and eight months in prison. John Welden, 29, admitted last year to giving Remee Jo Lee a bottle of the drug Cytotec, disguised as an antibiotic, after she became pregnant and refused an abortion. At a hearing earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Richard A. Lazzara found a single dose of the drug caused Lee to lose a nearly seven-week pregnancy. Welden would have faced a mandatory life sentence if convicted of first-degree murder under the federal Unborn Victims of

We live in a in a pluralistic country. New York State, with a population of about 19.6 million people, encompasses people from across the political, economic, social, and religious spectrums. Governor Cuomo acted like an elitist and nativist when he said that “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay… have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” He may be Governor, but does that give him the right to say who New Yorkers are? No matter where one stands on those issues, the Governor’s declaration was extreme. When Mayor de Blasio provided

A religious reliquary containing blood from the late Pope John Paul II has been stolen from a remote mountain church in Italy, with speculation that a Satanic group could be behind the theft. A team of around 50 Carabinieri police officers with sniffer dogs were on Monday searching for any trace of the reliquary, which was stolen from the Church of St Peter of Ienca in the Abruzzo mountains at the weekend. The ornate gold object contains a fragment of material, stained with blood, which was purportedly taken from the clothing worn by John Paul II after he was shot

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — Security officials say suspected Islamic extremists used explosives to attack a village in Nigeria´s northeast, killing 52 people and razing more than 300 homes. A security official said Monday the attackers planted several explosives at a market around Kawuri village Sunday.

President Barack Obama sat down with Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly for a pre-Super Bowl interview, a reprise of the Q&A the two did before the 2011 game, and Obama’s sixth straight pre-Super Bowl interview. O’Reilly grilled Obama on why Kathleen Sebelius had not been fired, noting that he as a taxpayer was paying her salary, and also asked if Obama thought the “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” claim was his “biggest mistake?” Obama responded to both queries by arguing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was an ongoing process, and he was committed to

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

We´ve had the Gaymmys; we´ve had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It´s not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved.

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page.

He´s doing a live interview from the White House with Bill O´Reilly about two hours before kickoff, during the Fox pregame show.

If rumours are to be believed, the 21-year marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama has been racked by screaming rows, allegations of infidelity and a string of jealous fights. While the White House has refused to comment on the reports there has been a distinct frostiness in the air between the couple in recent months.

"Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ´08?" Palin wrote. "You joined the ´cool kids´ in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we ´sit down and shut up.´ Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..."

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only
