After a campaign spewing misogyny and stirring up sexism, Obama on Saturday tried to bamboozle with an oddly timed “Women’s History Month” dump of words. On Friday, it was a publicity stunt with the Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks. Americans know a lot is wrong:
“Confidence in the U.S. system of government has dropped to a new low in more than 35 years, with public attitudes burdened by continued economic discontent, soaring gasoline prices, record opposition to the war in Afghanistan — and a letdown in hopes for political progress after a bout of bipartisanship last fall.
Only 26 percent of Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say they’re optimistic about “our system of government and how well it works,” down 7 points since October to the fewest in surveys dating to 1974. Almost as many, 23 percent, are pessimistic, the closest these measures ever have come. The rest, a record high, are “uncertain” about the system.”
False hope, like a fast car without brakes, eventually leads to kissing the brick wall of reality.
“Support for repeal of the national health care law has reached its highest level since May of last year. The number of voters who believe the plan will increase the cost of care has tied its highest level since the law’s passage last March.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 62% favor repeal of the health care law, including 51% who Strongly Favor it. Only 33% of voters oppose repeal, with 24% who are Strongly Opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Support for repeal is at a 10-month high, with the number that Strongly Favors repeal at its highest level to date.”
It’s not just Obama’s health scam that might get repealed:This really is like part two to Betty's "Yearbook photo" last night. I hope you read it. If not, make a point to.
If you go to NBC's "The Cape" page you can watch this preview. It's just two minutes but it really shows how great the show was getting.
I hope NBC doesn't cancel this show.
But they have the season's last episode up here so I'm guessing since it did go directly to streaming and didn't air over the airwaves, NBC wants to be done with it.
That really makes me sad because I was really starting to just watch NBC except for "No Ordinary Family." I like "Chuck," I like "Harry's Law," etc. So NBC was about to have me as a full time viewer.
Tomorrow I may blog about "The Cape." If I don't tomorrow, I'll do it the next day. It'll be about the last episode so if you want to watch it first, use the link now.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
