I know this is a few days old, but I finally have a minute to catch my breath. An astounding poll was released by Scott Rasmussen, one of the more accurate pollsters in the country. 75% are angry at Government’s Current Policies. Wait; say that again. 75% of the country is angry at the government? Can it be true that the Anointed One, often mistaken for The Messiah, is not as Divine as once believed? Wow. And we all thought he was going to save the world.

Other interesting findings:

45% are very angry.

Just 19% say that are not very or at all angry.

60% believe that neither party has a good understanding of what’s needed today.

Voters earning $60,000 to $100,000 per year are more frustrated than those in any other income group.


Looks like The One has lost his touch. People from all walks of life and political affiliations are disgruntled and angry. Gee…..I wonder what could be causing such grief. Could it be the disastrous healthcare legislation being shoved down our throat by The Three Amigos (despite its enormous unpopularity)? Or maybe it’s the unprecedented and massive spending, increasing the debt ceiling, the falling dollar, the focus on global warming legislation despite its most recent controversies, ballooning the size and scope of the federal government, the non-transparency of this administration, the debacle with KSM’s trial in New York City, the 10% unemployment, weakness on the War on Terror (oops! I mean “Overseas Contingency Operation”), etc, etc. I’m at a loss; I really can’t figure out why folks are turning against him and Congress.

Also enlightening are the results of yesterday’s poll concluding that 63% think the country would be better off if most of the incumbents in government were turned out. But since Obama doesn’t pay attention to polls (like we believe that!), I’m sure he’ll just keep doing what he’s doing. Afterall, the GOP’s victory last month in Massachusetts was only “a minor setback”. Yeah…..let’s just keep ignoring the public sentiments. Fine by me–you do so at your own peril.

Bring on November!
