despite the msm’s best efforts…..

Marist: Americans have become significantly more pessimistic about the U.S. economy. According to this national McClatchy-Marist Poll, nearly seven in ten adults nationwide — 68% — believe the worst of the country’s economic conditions are yet to come. 27% say the worst is behind us, and 6% are unsure.

….. However, nearly six in ten registered voters — 59% — still don’t blame President Barack Obama for the nation’s current economic conditions….

Thank you Africa

    Maybe Americans are maybe wising up to the FACT that: NONE of this country’s economic woes are President Barack Obama’s fault. Thanks Chips for posting this.

    Hey guys this just came in. The US Appeals Court just knocked down the individual mandate part of Healthcare Reform. This judgement came from the lawsuit filed by 26 states. Looks like it might be headed to the Supreme Court.

      I took a look at the US Appeals Court web site after reading your comment, utal, and I found that only 7 of the 17 judges were appointed by presidents who were democrats. I could be wrong, but I believe this has something to do with this decision since we know that republicans are willing to flip flop on positions they held earlier. The individual mandate was a part of the Heritage Foundation’s plan in the 1990s, but in 2010, the same group of individuals associated with the organization now say it’s unconstitutional.

        I’m hoping someone can explain to me why we need to care if the individual mandate is stricken from ACA. My memory of it was that Candidate Obama was opposed to the feature to begin with. If that’s the only part of the law that the Supreme Court looks at, I call that a win, but am willing to learn more to help me see otherwise.

        Majii, Chief Judge Joel Dubina was appointed in 1990 by George H. W. Bush. Judge Frank Hull was nominated by former President Bill Clinton. Judge Marcus dissented. There is another reason why we must continue to write to the Judicial Committee to get those nominations by President Obama through the committee and on to the Senate for a vote. There were 15 still waiting for a vote. I have written to Senator, Chairman Patrick Leahy several times concerning this. Alos, I have written to my two Senators about getting these nominations out of committee and onto the Senate for a vote. This is not right. We need to push for this. I know judges are non-partisan, but fair and just judges are what we need on the bench. Let us do this for our President.

      Hi, UTaustinliberal, please read my comment below. Will you help me by writing or calling our Senators and our wonderful Chairman Leahy of the Judicial Committee to get President Obama’s nominations through the committee and onto the floor of the Senate for a vote. Thanks UT.

    If this was 2016, I think a fire-breathing populist Dem like a Brian Schweitzer would really catch fire.

    msm is absolute corporate owned crap in a bucket.
    ps- at least Americans get that this financial mess isn’t PBO’s fault and that he’s trying really, really hard to solve a tough, decade in the making problem basically on his own with ABSOLUTELY NO HELP from 1/3 of the government.
    pps- I can’t remember if it was Africa or someone else who posted a link to Gallup showing that Dems in congress have a 51%-44% lead among voters. For all those congreesmen and women backbiting and backstabbing PBO, these numbers would NEVER have existed without PBO positioning us to the American people as the Country Above Party people. So they can complain about PBO’s lack of theatrics and posturing all they want, but they better shut up and fall in line or they just may lose their fool seats.

    I hope people are, in addition to recognizing the agenda and tactics of elected Republicans, are also waking up to bullshit and politcal propoganda that are media is engaging in as well. They deserve to be recognized for their complicity, and deceit, and to suffer colleteral damage from the Republican agenda as well.

      I have watched NO television news for over two months now. Now cable news. No network news. Newspapers and the internet are just fine.I watch cpsan occassionally and go to whitetehouse.gov for PBO events. I wonder how many others have pulled the plug?

        I finally canceled our Comcast a few months back whenever Rachel was lying about the President(New York fund raiser with th LGBT community) I get my news through the internet, starting here and always including Whitehouse.gov……I know I am better informed than those that watch cable and network news.

        I still call and complain, usually based on UT’s great summaries, but I literally could not stomach the lies and machinations for one more minute. But I have to say I always felt a little more powerful when I knew I had something I could take away from them, whether my viewership, or my cable contract. Now I am interested in their advertisers.
