• comment on a post Need a way out over 4 years ago

    Q's polling has been horrific lately and it's time to cast them aside.

    Pres. Obama's approval has been on the upswing over the last week (compared to weeks prior) confirmed by various polls (53% from CBS, 55% from CNN and 56% from ABC).

    Until I see other pollsters show the same low standing -- not Q who has reduced their RV sample since July (which has resulted in 50-ish percent approval ratings for President Obama and other odd polling results) -- I'll start to get concerned.

    It's irresponsible to judge the opinion of the public with one poll.  Especially from an organization who conveniently stopped polling the national race in September of 2008.

  • And deficit spending bills need 60 votes.  So the whole "we'll make them filibuster" has no place in this debate.

    60 votes is needed NO MATTER WHAT.

  • What the heck is wrong with you people?

    Where is the logic that the Republicans would have been happier with a bill at say $1.5 trillion than one at $800billion?

    Why would that high a bill have been easier to get 60 votes on than one at $800 billion?

    The idiocy is just mind boggling some times.

  • comment on a post Obama's Gregg Problem over 5 years ago

    Some hilariously stupid comments were made in that piece.  I barely got through it, but I just, just made it through.  Whew.  Thanks for another funny read and watch.

    The Left is now using a tactic we once vigourously fought against to attack a choice made by one of our own: guilt by association.

    It would be even more funny if it wasn't so frightening idiotic.

    Then again, it once again reinforces my confidence in someone who seems like the only adult left in, or talking about, Washington politics: President Barack Obama.

    Man, I've absolutely loved these last few days.  The amount of funny coming from the left-leaning blogs and press is at an all-time high.

    Please, please keep it up.

    Thanks again for another LOL read. :)

  • I didn't read that article yet, but if what you say is correct, I don't understand why you're surprised.

    Liberals never seem to go about enacting policy correctly anymore.

    They complain about getting things done, but when it comes to actually getting things done, they fall apart (choosing to focus on extremely insignificant things allowing for the other side to take advantage -- Republicans: "We liked President Obama's bill, but what the House passed isn't his bill.").

    This current situation is all the evidence you need for that.

    Many liberal politicians (actually, more like liberal commentators, there are certainly a good few successful liberal politicians out there) come from the Lou "faux-Independent" Dobbs school of thinking:

    All talk, no solutions.

    And by the way, I consider myself a liberal progressive even though that label likely doesn't mean what it should any more.

  • You can't have it both ways.  You can't complain, complain, complain about the bill last week, and then be surprised when the media and the Republicans and even some Democrats are pushing for changes, thereby threatening the passage of a good bill.

    The complaints by Democrats and the vocal minority have allowed the Republicans to gain the upper hand.

    Stupidity doesn't die quickly.

  • comment on a post Pressuring Congress To Pass The Stimulus Package over 5 years ago

    "With a plurality of Americans now saying they oppose the the stimulus package currently making its way through congress..."

    No they don't.  They oppose what the media is telling them is not a stimulus package.

    The problem is that the media, the blogs and people in general, are not doing their part to read the stimulus package and understand what it's about.

    Rasmussen has been pushing BS polls for months now.  I don't trust them one bit, especially on an issue as complicated as this one, where certain wording can completely skew the results.

  • comment on a post Mixed Signals On Burris over 5 years ago

    "But my gut instinct says that this is the second time since Monday that Obama's people didn't communicate their decisions to Congressional allies quite as well as they could have."

    would be awesome.  

    Our Democratic congress, although not entirely their fault, has been incredibly inept over the last two years.  Hopefully they're getting the message loud and clear: We've got 59 votes, shape up and get shit done.

  • So you're just going to ignore CBS's final poll?

    http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/Oct08i -all-Monday.pdf

    On the eve of the 2008 presidential election, the CBS News Poll finds the Democratic ticket, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, still with a comfortable lead over the Republicans, John McCain and Sarah Palin. The Democrats hold a nine point advantage among likely voters, including those who lean toward a candidate.

    Once again, their final poll was 51% for Obama and 42% for McCain (+9 Obama).

    The current election returns are getting close to 53/45 which would be 8 percent when rounded.  At the very least, it'll be 53/46 and they would have missed by just two points.

  • comment on a post Democrats assail Obama for failure to shed "elect" over 5 years ago

    What a foll Frank and some of the Democrats are.  Why don't they do their job?  Obama isn't the President yet.  What, are they babies?  Do they need Obama to tell them what to do?

    What a joke.

  • That would be 51% Obama, 42% McCain.

    I should also add that while I'm pretty sure that Clinton would have beaten McCain, I don't believe she would have done it as convincingly.  Especially on a state-by-state basis.

    I have a hard time believing a Clinton campaign would have won in places like Virginia, North Carolina and Indiana or perhaps even places like Nevada and Colorado.

    Then again, she probabaly would have fared better in the south than Obama (perhaps getting wins in LA, KY and WV).

  • No.  CBS's final poll was Obama +9 (52/41).  Considering the current result is +7 (not +6), they weren't really off by that much.
