....what could give the Democrats even a slender reed of hope? If there’s any plausible answer, it can be drawn from the single poll finding that is most devastating for Obama, the question (as worded by The Washington Post/ABC News) of whether “he understands the problems of people like you.” There his numbers really have imploded. When he arrived in office, 72 percent answered Yes and 24 percent No. As of last week, Yes had fallen to 50 and No had doubled to 48. Link.
Here's a telling question. Do you think that the proper role of government is to "help people"?
"That to secure these privileges, entitlements, and bailouts, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the coffers of the lobbyists."
Not what you had in mind? I hate to break it to you, Sunshine, but government can do nothing positive. All its actions are negative, as in tax and penalize. In order to "help" some group or business, they must first steal from someone who doesn't need help. Feel free to correct me if I'm deluded, but the best thing a government can do to "help" the citizenry is to get the fuck outa our way.
"since I'm the president and Democrats have controlled the House and the Senate, it's understandable that people are saying, you know, 'What have you done?'" Link.
"Bin Laden has gone deep underground. Even Zawahiri, who is more often out there, has been much more cautious. But we have the best minds, the best intelligence officers, the best special forces, who are thinking about this day and night. And they will continue to think about it day and night as long as I'm president," Obama said. Link.
Obammy, waving a boogie man at us to keep us wetting our pants in fear.
Help us, Obi Wan Obammy! You are our only Hopey-Changey!
