Reality Check for the Obamessiah

It has been 50 days since the Socialist Messiah was inaugurated into the Presidency, and the MSM is still wetting their panties and saying he has high support from the nation. But that is not reality, nor what public opinion is:
It is simply wrong for commentators to continue to focus on President Barack Obama's high levels of popularity, and to conclude that these are indicative of high levels of public confidence in the work of his administration. Indeed, a detailed look at recent survey data shows that the opposite is most likely true. The American people are coming to express increasingly significant doubts about his initiatives, and most likely support a different agenda and different policies from those that the Obama administration has advanced.

Polling data show that Mr. Obama's approval rating is dropping and is below where George W. Bush was in an analogous period in 2001. Rasmussen Reports data shows that Mr. Obama's net presidential approval rating -- which is calculated by subtracting the number who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve -- is just six, his lowest rating to date.

Overall, Rasmussen Reports shows a 56%-43% approval, with a third strongly disapproving of the president's performance. This is a substantial degree of polarization so early in the administration. Mr. Obama has lost virtually all of his Republican support and a good part of his Independent support, and the trend is decidedly negative.

Woah! A 56% to 43% Approval/Disapproval rating this early in the game is pretty significant. I wonder why:
The reason for this decline most likely has to do with doubts about the administration's policies and their impact on peoples' lives.

There is also a clear sense in the polling that taxes will increase for all Americans because of the stimulus, notwithstanding what the president has said about taxes going down for 95% of Americans. Close to three-quarters expect that government spending will grow under this administration.

Obama, the Donks in Congress and the MSM must think the public is too stupid to realize what they are doing to our country. But the public is not! We realize that with a horrendous increase in Gov't spending will come with a horrendous increase in the taxes we pay, despite the empty rhetoric that Obama spouted.

Obama and the Donks are sinking this country into a Depression, not helping it. This administration's socialist economic policies are doing nothing to stimulate economic growth, job growth or consumer confidence, it is achieving the direct opposite.

May those that voted for this commie in sheep's clothing suffer worse than those of us that knew what the true Obama was: an America hating socialist statist!
