Fifty-seven percent of Independents now disapprove of what he’s doing. And their votes are likely to determine the election. They certainly have a lot to be concerned about, as Sarah (yes, that Sarah) outlines:
“…a debt crisis that has us hurtling towards a Greek-style collapse, entitlement programs going bankrupt, a credit downgrade for the first time in our history, a government takeover of the health care industry that makes care more expensive and puts a rationing panel of faceless bureaucrats between you and your doctor (aka a “death panel”), $4 and $5 gas at the pump exacerbated by an anti-drilling agenda that rejects good paying energy sector jobs and makes us more dependent on dangerous foreign regimes,
“a war in Afghanistan that seems unfocused and unending, a global presidential apology tour that’s made us look feeble and ridiculous, a housing market in the tank, the longest streak of high unemployment since World War II, private-sector job creators and industry strangled by burdensome regulations and an out-of-control Obama EPA, an attack on the Constitutional protection of religious liberty,
“an attack on private industry in right-to-work states, crony capitalism run amok in an administration in bed with their favored cronies to the detriment of genuine free market capitalism, green energy pay-to-play kickbacks to Obama campaign donors, and a Justice Department still stonewalling on a bungled operation that armed violent Mexican drug lords and led to the deaths of hundreds of innocent people.”
If only that 57 percent holds until November. Probably won’t, though. I figure most of them voted for him to begin with because of the novelty, i.e., his skin color. They certainly didn’t know much about his radical preferences because big media hid it from them. And none of that has changed.
Plus big media (his court media, after all) will be banging their tin drums for him and against the Republicans just like they did in ’08. Have the Independents figured out yet what shills they are? Gad, I hope so.

Wish she’d run for president in 2012, but I suppose it’s too late. But things like this are worth the effort: reform that tackles both parties and their cronies.
“No more sweetheart land deals with campaign contributors. No gifts of IPO shares. No trading of stocks related to committee assignments. No earmarks where the congressman receives a direct benefit. No accepting campaign contributions while Congress is in session. No lobbyists as family members, and no transitioning into a lobbying career after leaving office. No more revolving door, ever.”
Read. It. All.
This is the permanent political class we’re talking about.
I’ve always liked Rick Perry. I like the idea of the governor being an Aggie, a farmer and a former C-130 pilot. And I like the idea of Anita being the First Lady of Texas. What a babe.
As for Rick’s chances of becoming president, well, he’s already being outed for what looks like a potential kickback scandal, whether it actually is or not. His contributor cronies are getting millions in state tax money which, whatever the legality and good intentions of it, smells rotten.
Meanwhile, I still think no white man is going to beat Obamalot, pathetic as he is, in these times of cultural decline. The first black president, and all that. It will take a woman or a minority to do it. So far, there is no strong GOP minority candidate. Michele Bachmann is the only viable woman. I’m still hoping Sarah decides to run.
You remember Couric, the so-called journalist who did the hatchet-job on Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign? Well, Sarah’s still viable. Couric is leaving cBS. She’s become even more irrelevant than the network she used to work for.
The Day By Day cartoon had a good one the other day. Paraphrasing Abraham Lincoln on why, despite legacy media and career pol opposition, Sarah is still the best bet for the presidency: “I cannot spare this woman; she fights.”
UPDATE: Meanwhile, just as they did with California governor Ronald Reagan more than thirty years ago, the Left will go to any length to attack her. For instance, the snide producers of the Missoula Children’s Theater.
Palin Derangement Syndrome makes me laugh. She’ll be a great president.
You could say that Glenn Beck did it, brought the 300,000 to 500,000 folks to the mall in D.C. today. But who wants to look at him? Must have been Sarah.
Meanwhile, the Obamalot court media just happens to have fallen in line with the same two-word assessment of the crowd i.e. “overwhelmingly white.” Yeah, let’s keep it racial, boys, like you always do. You’ve spent two years branding most of the country racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, etc. Ever wonder if that could be the source of your circulation and financial woes? Might.
