Barak Obama, the Titanic edition

Things are looking mighty bad for President Barak Obama.

His signature issue of health-care reform?  Sinking

“Three weeks after Congress passed its new national health care plan, support for repeal of the measure has risen four points to 58%. That includes 50% of U.S. voters who strongly favor repeal.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters nationwide finds 38% still oppose repeal, including 32% who strongly oppose it.”

Even the President himself would appear to be taking on water

“Pit maverick Republican Congressman Ron Paul against President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 election match-up, and the race is – virtually dead even.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of likely voters finds Obama with 42% support and Paul with 41% of the vote. Eleven percent (11%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.”

It seem that he may even be dragging his own party below the water line…

“Even worse, a majority of Americans have already decided they don’t want Obama to have a second term.

And just say under Obama’s leadership and insistence on his unpopular healthcare bill over jobs, all the spending and exploding deficits, plus the certainty of new taxes to cover his costs, the Democrats in Congress get thoroughly thrashed by the GOP come November. Maybe they even lose control of both houses.

This week a new poll showed Americans now preferring the GOP on a generic congressional ballot. And despite eagerly optimistic recent administration economic claims, the unemployment rate is likely to hang high, and now comes a new ABC News Poll finding national consumer confidence actually waning, not building.”

Today, on the anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, maybe its just natural to have a sinking feeling…

UPDATE!

I would seem that Cap’n Obama is in danger of going down with the ship…

“Americans are now pretty evenly divided about whether they would rather have Barack Obama or George W. Bush in the White House. 48% prefer Obama while 46% say they would rather have the old President back.

Bush had atrocious approval ratings for his final few years in office, particularly because he lost a lot of support from Republicans and conservative leaning independents. Those folks may not have liked him but they now say they would rather have him back than Obama”

Hope someone remembered their water-wings…

    Haha, what a great story. Reminds me of the billboard kerfuffle: "Y'all miss me yet?". I'm gonna get that bumper sticker, and put it right next to the one that says "I was wrong. He's worse than Carter."

    The imagery is great.  As the bulk of the passengers (voters) have already hit the life boats I wonder when the crew (Democrats) will catch the drift and get off the Good-Ship-Obama.
