It’s all about the man. Every day. All day.
From our friend Andrew C. McCarthy posting over at National Review Online.
Just a reminder. President Bush’s (43) approval average during his second term was 37 percent, reaching a low point of 25 percent sometime during the fall of 2008, right around election time. The main stream press had totally and completely bought into the Bush Derangement Syndrome by mid-2006 when his approval rating was around 40 percent. The man was blamed for everything.
At what point does the main stream media start giving President Obama a hassle about his approval rating? Buried deep in an AP story from Oct. 9, we learn Obama’s approval rating is now at 37 percent. The same as Bush’s second term average.
Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent.
My question in the second paragraph is rhetoric, because we all know the main stream media will hold the water for this president and avoid comparing approval numbers to Bush 43 at all cost. That would be a fireable offense for certain.
Hat tip to Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air.
The stories we are reading about the Federal government closing open-air monuments, federal parks and even private businesses operated on federal property is infuriating. There is no reason for it at all, and in many cases President Obama is spending more funds to close an area than needed to leave it open.
So Denver gets a bunch of stimulus cash to spend – and they really HAVE to spend it – so they buy a bunch of saplings and go door to door around Denver asking property owners if they would like a free tree planted in their yard.
No, it is not. A [human] right is one that exists simultaneously between people. In no way, may one of your “rights” diminish the rights of another person. Let me explain the brutal circle here.
Why not? Certainly if the federal government can come in and write unique and precedent-setting bankruptcy rules for General Motors, they can do the same thing for Detroit. For those of you who think Detroit’s problems belong to the city and Michigan, you’re wrong. You’re going to end up paying for it.
Goodness grief. I thought the environmental groups moved from “global warming” to “climate change” to cover the fact the world really is not warming and will supposedly be experiencing “extremes.” Now I guess we’re back to the possibility of the world “boiling over.”
Those with a mental illness who are physically violent are extremely rare, those who are violent with guns are even more rare. In the same vain, a firearm owner who commits a violent act with a gun is extremely rare too. We – gun owners – asked politicians and the media not to associate law-abiding gun owners with violent acts like the Sandy Hook shooting. We were ignored and specifically called out as the problem. Yet, President Obama was asked to distance mental health issues from the gun control issue, and he complied. Read more
