Desperate Dems Keep Dropping in Polls

The Obama propaganda blitz is in full swing. At a time when Congressmen can barely seem to find a supporter for the Obamacare plan, the President’s town hall meetings are packed with them. The administration swears lies that they’re not handpicked crowds intended to boost Obama’s ratings and poll numbers for the nationalization of the health care industry, but it’s impossible to believe him.

In Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll the number of likely voters who disapprove of the President’s policies has now risen to 52%, the highest it’s been since his inauguration. ARRA News Service notes a Gallup poll shows the President’s full court press to push the issue hasn’t helped. Last month 50% of respondents disapproved of Obama’s handling of the health care issue while 44% approved. This month, even with the concerted effort by Obama and his lackeys, 49% disapprove and 43% approve. A net gain of zero.

Other polls show 54% of Americans favor middle class tax cuts over spending more than a trillion dollars for a government takeover of the health care industry and support among likely voters for HR 3200 has fallen to a new low with only 42% favoring the House plan.  The growing distrust of Obama on his signature issue isn’t sitting well with the President or his supporters.

After the Obama administration threatened to “punch back twice as hard,” protests began turning violent as desperate liberals attacked when they felt their dream of socialized medicine slipping away.  Many Congressmen are refusing to hold more town hall meetings as the futility of fooling voters becomes apparent.  Once the Democratic strategy of lying to Americans at town halls failed to accomplish desired results, the Obama camp turned to attacking the ordinary citizens standing up for their freedom.  Democrats in the White House and elsewhere labeled protesters “un-American” and an “angry mob.”

As the polls referenced above show, their desperate tactics have thus far been unable to stop the rushing tide of resistance to a government takeover of another 1/6 of our economy.  Now Obamanot Senator Chuck Shumer (D-NY) is looking  to force the American people to accept the unpopular takeover by trashing the Senate tradition of allowing unlimited debate by re-labeling the health care bill as a sort of budget bill.  Dishonest?  Yes.  But Democrats have little respect for truth and transparency.

Conservatives still have the advantage though.  With public sentiment against Obama and Democratic policies growing at an unbelievable pace and the 2010 campaign season pretty much beginning now, Dems up for re-election have to be squirming in their seat, especially Blue Dogs in conservative districts.  They realize their necks are on the line if their constituents are unhappy when they pull the lever in November.

As long as the opposition to a government-run health care system doesn’t fade, Pelosi and Obama won’t have the votes to pass Obamacare.

Now We’re Un-American?

According to Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), my US Senator anyway!

Is there any level so low Democrats in Washington won’t stoop to it?  Are they so conceited they actually believe themselves as they outright lie to the American people?  Do they really think the American people are so terribly stupid they can’t see through their childish, imbecilic responses to conservatives’ fact-based challenges to their agenda?

Our first hint of things to come was the Department of Homeland Security report that warned law enforcement agencies of the danger posed by virtually every conservative in the country.  Labeled “Right-Wing Extremists” in the report, conservative Republicans, Independents, and third party backers were pointed to as potential terrorists who deserved the scrutiny of local, state, and federal law enforcement officials.  Even targeting the most patriotic among us, veterans of the US armed forces, it generated the first of several conservative uprisings to challenge Obama administration policies.

We thought it bad when we found out they didn’t read the $787 billion so-called “stimulus” bill.  Then the arrogant Henry Waxman (D-CA) hired a speed reader to buzz through the Cap & Trade bill on the House Energy & Commerce committee at an unintelligible pace so that he could claim to have “read the bill.”  The move was designed to undermine an attempt by Republicans to force them to fulfill their obligations to constituents by reading the bill to fully understand what the legislation would saddle the American people with.  It was a classless, egotistical attempt by Democrats to ridicule both constituents and fellow members of the US House who demanded Democrats act responsibly and perform the duties for which they were hired.

The same Democratic legislators refused to read HR 3200, “Obamacare,” and are now paying the price.  Now that conservatives have realized their representatives refuse to do their jobs, constituents are taking the task upon themselves.  We now have a situation where ordinary citizens are taking the time to read legislation and explaining it to our elected officials.  And the Democrats don’t like it.

Their lies and talking points are no longer holding water with the American people, because they understand it better than the Congress!  Congressmen are walking into town halls and other public meetings armed with a single sheet of Pelosi-Reid talking points while their disgruntled constituents come armed with the actual text of the bill!  Backed into a corner with facts, Democrats in Washington are lashing out in desperate attempts to denigrate their own constituents.

The Obama administration has now issued a mandate to his minions to turn in neighbors, friends, and family who write and forward communications critical of Obamacare.  Not stopping there, the White House even demands “fishy” truths about Obama’s government-run health care program mentioned in casual conversations should be reported to the Propaganda Office in the White House.  Ask yourself, when have we ever faced the prospect of an American President demanding citizens turn each other in to the government for disagreeing with policy?  Never.

If that’s not enough to worry you, the President’s aides have now made direct threats to “punch back twice as hard” whenever the administration’s health care policies are challenged.  We saw this put into practice when the administration sent in union thugs to physically assault protesters outside a St. Louis town hall.  So now we have a President actively engaging in suppression of Americans’ ability to freely express their disagreement with their government.

And now we hear our own Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) has described us as un-American!  It’s funny how Democrats have no problem with protesters who demonstrate against conservatives and their causes.  According to Hillary Clinton, “we have a right to disagree with any administration.”  But I guess she meant any Republican administration.  Of course Lincoln is now backing away from her comment, but calling your constituents un-American doesn’t happen with a slip of the tongue.

She’s retreating because the heat from the fire she stoked is too hot!  Though her Arkansas colleague didn’t even face a Republican challenger last year, the GOP field to run against Lincoln has already drawn a crowd.  Arkansas State Senator Kim Hendren and Arkansas Tea Party organizer Tom Cox have already announced their intent to run, while central Arkansas businessman Curtis Coleman and State Senator Gilbert Baker are considering runs but have yet to announce.  (Although I have it from a pretty reliable source that Coleman will announce soon.)  A conservative Independent, Trevor Drown, has also announced his intent to run for Lincoln’s seat.

Lincoln’s opposition hopefuls wasted little time taking Arkansas’ senior Senator to task for her callous comment.  The Cox campaign issued the following press release:

“Since the founding of the United States people have been exercising the freedom and responsibility to question their elected representatives. The current public political debate resembles the enthusiasm of our nation’s first 100 years. A U.S. Senator referring to The People as “disrespectful” and “un-American” for calling on their Representatives is appalling. Senator Lincoln’s statements are indicative of the elitist Washington D.C. arrogance and mentality that continues to dismiss the voice of Middle America. The citizens of this country deserve honest answers to their questions.”

Coleman, who’s made numerous posts on his blog enumerating the flaws in the Democrats’ health care plan, had this to say:

“What’s sad is that Senator Lincoln apparently doesn’t value the opinions of hard-working Arkansans who took time away from their busy schedules to express their concern over losing control of their healthcare to the government. Senator Lincoln’s description of these Arkansans as ‘un-American’ illustrates how deeply out of touch she is with the American people.”

Lincoln’s planning a series of public speaking events this week (not town halls) and we hope she gets an earful from some of us un-American Right-Wing-Extremists everywhere she goes!
