One-Term President

By Jedediah Bila

 As President Obama once again makes class warfare the centerpiece of his deficit reduction plan via a proposal of $1.5 trillion in new taxes, let’s take a peek at some recent stats and polling with respect to our Campaigner-in-chief.

  • GALLUP – “Underemployment, a measure that combines the percentage of workers who are unemployed with the percentage working part time but wanting full-time work, is 18.5% in mid-September — the same as the 18.5% at the end of August and the 18.6% of mid-September a year ago.”

 Hope and change, folks! Can’t you just feel the job-growth love?

  •  RASMUSSEN – “Among Undecided Voters, 64% Disapprove of Obama” – “Currently, among those who are undecided, just 34% approve of the way the president has handled his job, while 64% disapprove. Among those who prefer a third option rather than Obama or a particular GOP candidate, the president’s numbers are even weaker: 13% approve, and 87% disapprove.”

 Say it with me: one-term president.

  •  RASMUSSEN – “44% Conservative, 40% Moderate, 11% Liberal on Fiscal Issues”  As I have been saying for some time, this President’s policies are antithetical to the will of the American majority. It is up to Republicans, particularly 2012 contenders, to adeptly articulate that.
  •  GALLUP – “Three Years After Crisis, Little Sign of Economic Relief in U.S.” – “Americans’ confidence in the U.S. economy is now at its lowest point since February 2009 — near the conclusion of the recession that officially ended in June 2009 … Seventy-seven percent said the economy was getting worse in August, the highest — by far — since February 2009, the month in which Congress passed a $787 billion stimulus bill in hopes of lifting the U.S. economy out the depths of the recession … Americans’ spending has remained essentially stagnant since it fell dramatically in January 2009.”

 Time for new leadership in 2012? I would certainly say so.

  •  THE HILL – “U.S. stance on Israel important to voters” – “Independent voters might again be a problem for the president on this question, with nearly 4 in 10 believing he is ‘anti-Israel.’ Fifty percent of independents also said Obama is ‘not supportive enough’ of Israel in responding to a separate question, making them even more strident than Republicans, slightly less than half of whom said Obama does not support Israel enough.”

Independents will be the key to the 2012 election. A problem for our President?

You bet it is.

  •  CBS NEWS/NEW YORK TIMES – “72% of Americans think the country is off on the wrong track, the highest percentage so far since President Obama took office … President Obama now garners the lowest approval rating of his presidency – 43% approve of the job he’s doing while 50% disapprove – and most disapprove of how he’s handling both the economy and job creation.”

 Our President now has a record. Unfortunately for him, many people aren’t blindly following his catchy slogans like they did in 2008. Instead, they are paying attention to his failed policies.

 2012 GOP contenders, this President’s policies are not only unsuccessful, but unpopular. His record when it comes to the economy and job growth is abysmal. His far-left, big-government, tax-and-spend agenda has dug us deeper and deeper into a debt hole. And his class-warfare driven talking points go against everything this country stands for.

 He has given you all the tools with which to defeat him. Now get out there and make him a one-term president.

Read the message above you. Medicare and SS are the problem along with every other entittlement program there is. One big difference is that those of us on medicare and SS have paid for part of what we are getting but the money has not been used for its original purpose. No matter how much other goverment waste and spending is going to be cut, it will not be enough without cutting entittlements. I don’t like it either, but I want to save our country.

You are so right about us supporting the other 43%. I am not hard hearted. I have helped a lot of people over the years. I am a real sucker for people in need. I do not like having what I have worked for taken from me and given to those who won’t work or who have pooped off their income. How many people remember the story of the little hen who tried to get everyone to work to grow food and put it away so they would have food for the winter. Everyone worked but the grasshopper. When winter came and he had no food, I don’t remember that everyone shared with him because he sat on his duff. All these crybaby liberals need to get a taste of reality. Some people aren’t going to work if they don’t have too, some will spend everything they make if they… Read more »

We should all encourage our GOP candidates to run on the platform of CUTTING government by at least 10% per year until it is once again “Right-Sized” and affordable. Stop letting the liberals get by with threatening to cut Social Security and Medicare when these programs are NOT the problem!

You wonder why 43% of Voters support Omama? Those Votors are bought and payed for by the remaining voters. That 43% (or more) don’t understand what the National dept means, don’t care about the jobless rate because they will not work, and do not care about taxes because they don’t pay any. Sorry Folks but the Luny’s have taken over the asylum. Too late! too late! too late! We have been asleep too long.

Will the Dems bait and switch us by running BO’s agenda until he is fully unelectable and replace him with someone who can appease the defectors just so they can continue their liberal agenda? Watch out!

The Senate and House dems are ignorant of capitalism and the greatness this country has been because of capitalism. Or they are just plan stupid. I find them both ignorate of what help make America an inspiration to the world and they are just politions voting to stay in office and not caring about America. One can make ignorant people vote for you but not informed inteligent people.

The only thing transparent about Obama’s Administration is their lies, exagerations and deceptions. Obama depends completely on the lowest intelect constituency who’s gullibility he used to get elected the first time. He also screwed them the most with his policies. If they don’t recognize how they were duped they deserve him.

Honestly, I saw through Obama’s lies from the beginning – during his campaigning in 2007-08. He has deceived ALL those who had confidence in him because of his rhetoric and voted for him. As president he continues to be condescending to everyone if they do not agree with his agenda’s and far left ideology. He still blames former president Bush. Once a lier always a lier. He can’t seem to get away from the blame game which is one of his greatest weaknesses as a so-called leader. Even now, after so much failure of his administration, the majority of people who voted for him in 2008 still back him up. This is blatant blindness to the facts and truth of this man’s failures and ineptitude as a leader of the greatest and most democratic nation on earth. I am recently retired from military service and I am dismayed at Obama’s… Read more »

When Obama demonizes businessmen, he demonizes businessmen around the world. Why would a German, Korean or any other international businessman want to build a factory in the U.S.A. when he will be demonized? Foreign companies have many businesses in the U.S.A. We need them to keep investing in the U.S.A.

Obama had 3 years to fix the problem that “Bush left him”. All BO has done was to leave us and our grandkids in debt. No more blaming others and wining. No teleprompter will get you out of this mess. My question Mr Obama is after you lose this election, will you go back to the country you were born in?

Great article as always….I sincerely Hope and Pray this man is a one termer…and the majority of the people have finally woken up to his ‘used car salesman’ attitude….I found it very interesting that I watched the special they had on eliminating BinLaden….with the obamas comments intermingled…He actually sounded like a President should sound …but catch him after the show on the news with him shucking and jiving while trying to sell some of his swamp land and it makes you really realize this man dosent know how to act professional in public…..and is a total idiot! Each night with my closing thoughts and prayers…..I am adding….”and Please Lord…deliver US from this deceiver in 2012″……

Peggy, What does Bilderbuger mean?
Did Bush the elder belong? He
preached a new world order which I
never understood.

When are people going to wake up and realize that we need to make changes in Washington from top to bottom? This starts with the change guy at the top and both parties. They are no longer interested in the voters as much as they are for themselves being re-elected. Thanks for listening.

Interesting that Democratic Senate Majority Head Harry Reid said that the Senate will NOT address the President’s job bill as a top priority. Seems the Dems have more important things on tap. Or, are the Dems just planning to blame the Republicans for holding up the Job Bill. Time will tell.

our country being what it is right this minute.

Hold on thar! Republicans have a way of shooting themselves in the foot. They’ve got everything going for them now, but will they snatch defeat from the jaws of victory 13 months from now?

They’ve currently got some nine candidates debating amongst themselves…forgetting? who the real opposition is! Someone said recently that Obama ought to send the RNC lots of money, so that the Republican hopefuls can continue blasting one other weekly.

The only candidate up there in the polls (so far) who isn’t doing that is Herman Cain. But who thinks the Repubs. will pit him against The Anointed One? Cain isn’t part of the Establishment. ‘Nuff said.

I agree with everything already said,however,my 84 years have taught me that preaching to the choir doesn’t support the church. I am limited by age and health but am doing my best to alert people to the dangers our great country faces but I’m afraid all our talk is falling on too many deaf ears.I can only hope and pray I’m wrong.
