Another potential slap in the face for Obama and Biden – Polls show Dems might lose Obama, Biden Senate seats
Let me try to be concise with this summary. Obama wins the presidency and Blago-D, Illinois Govenor (a criminal and impeached Govenor) appoints Burris-D (now under ethics investigation) who will not seek election for the Junior Senator seat from Illinois. The race comes down to five-term Rep. Mark Steven Kirk, the expected Republican nominee, who is running for Mr. Obama’s seat. The Democratic front-runner is state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias, whom an opposing Democratic campaign adviser calls a “deeply flawed” candidate. Hmmm, what does “deeply flawed” actually mean? His family bank, where Alexi served as an officer, made loans to Tony Rezko, who is now sitting in a penitentiary. If Kirk wins, that means that Obama’s former Senate seat will go to a Republican. Face slap number one.
Now, let’s talk about Joe (don’t mess with Joe) Biden’s seat in Delaware. Rep. Michael N. Castle, a Republican who has won nine statewide elections as the state’s only House member, has been leading state Attorney General Beau (don’t mess with Beau?) Biden in polls. Beau, if you haven’t figured it out yet is Joe’s son. So much for the no cronyism rule of the Dems. Beau has not decided if he’s going to run yet, but either way, the odds are that Biden’s Senate seat will also go to a Republican. Face slap number two.

With an election less than a year away and pending healthcare, cap & tax, and other spending bills in the House and Senate, how many Democrats are willing to sacrifice their careers for a President with a 44% approval rating after only a year in office? Dirty, slimy Harry Reid can’t find 60 votes to pass healthcare, Cap & Trade seems DOA in the Senate and now Barry O’s numbers are still tanking. He’s got a big problem, and it’s not the Republicans. It’s his own party who can’t agree on anything. Poor Obama.

Unbelievable article in Rolling Stone slamming Obama and the people with whom he’s surrounded himself. During the campaign, he slammed Bush for cronyism, the act of hiring people who are friends or family. Obama puts Bush to shame with his own version. This guy is downright shady in his dealings. The author of the article, Matt Taibbi shows incredible detail and research by proving and listing everyone involved. I will warn you that there are some bad words as only Rolling Stone can get away with. The piece is long, but well worth it if you want to know the real agenda behind the most dishonest president in our history and his cronies. You might want to get yourself something to nibble on and a drink before sinking your teeth into this one. So sit back and read the story of Obama and his crooked little friends. Enjoy.
Barack Obama ran for president as a man of the people, standing up to Wall Street as the global economy melted down in that fateful fall of 2008. He pushed a tax plan to soak the rich, ripped NAFTA for hurting the middle class and tore into John McCain for supporting a bankruptcy bill that sided with wealthy bankers “at the expense of hardworking Americans.” Obama may not have run to the left of Samuel Gompers or Cesar Chavez, but it’s not like you saw him on the campaign trail flanked by bankers from Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. What inspired supporters who pushed him to his historic win was the sense that a genuine outsider was finally breaking into an exclusive club, that walls were being torn down, that things were, for lack of a better or more specific term, changing.
Then he got elected.

This interesting thing about the chart below is that it takes every known poll out there and charts it to come up with the average. EVERY poll listed below the chart (click link below) has the people who oppose the healthcare bill substantially higher. Do you think the Senators and Representatives could take their heads out of their…um…you know, and take a minute to read the polls or even, I don’t know, maybe ask their constituents? I will ask the question yet again. Didn’t we elect these people to REPRESENT us? If we do not want this bill by an overwhelming majority, then why are they forcing this bill on us?
Have you noticed that they are not talking about improving the healthcare we receive, they are spending countless hours negotiating items that they can get other Senators to agree on. Public option, abortion, etc. These things have nothing to do with the way our healthcare is delivered only administered; along with substantial bribes for Senators on the fence. This bill has nothing to do with your health and everything to do with controlling a huge sector of the economy and our lives. Continue to call your Senators and urge them to vote against the bill and to convince their Democrat colleagues to vote against it.
Do Americans Want Health Care Reform, or Not?
Polled support for the health care plan wending its way through Congress continues to crash downward in the polls. And before you say it, it’s not just Rasmussen, which has actually been pretty much in the middle of the other polls. Here’s where we stand as of today:
How’s that hopety dopety change working out for ya? With total jobless claims now topping 10 million, the unemployment situation is not looking any better. Last week Obama went out and flashed those big pearly whites, you know the ones that make him a good politician, and told people that the unemployment situation was improving based on the 11% of new claims filed are down from a year ago. But wait…what he didn’t read off of the teleprompter was that continuing claims are up 31%. Now, if you are an Obama supporter and just drool over his eloquence without paying any attention to the real meaning, I’ll try and explain what that actually means. It means that fewer jobs were lost, but once they are lost, it takes a much longer time to find a new job. Remember those old black and white depression-era photos? Well history is repeating itself. Yep, I guess that old stimulus tax that Joe (don’t mess with Joe) Biden says is working exactly the way it was designed to is really helping. Riiight.
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) – The number of people filing claims for state unemployment benefits rose by 17,000 to a seasonally adjusted 474,000 in the week ending Dec. 5, while the total number of people claiming benefits of any kind topped 10 million, a sign of very sluggish hiring, the Labor Department reported Thursday.
First-time claims — which measure new layoffs — rose for the first time in six weeks in the week after Thanksgiving. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had expected initial claims to fall to about 450,000.
