Politico/GWU poll

The polls weren’t pretty today, although as Steve Benen points out (here) a big majority favor the President and Democrats’ economic/jobs agenda over the GOP’s – and that could prove pretty significant in the coming months:

Politico’s poll asked a question about “a large scale federally subsidized nationwide construction program putting Americans back to work building roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals.” A 51% majority favored the idea, while only 21% opposed it.

When President Obama presents his jobs agenda on Thursday, it’s likely those who tune in will approve of his ideas…. for all of the president’s troubles in the polls, most of the public is still on board with what Democrats are proposing, and have no use for what the GOP is selling.

He also leads Perry 47-42% and Romney 46-45% in the NBC/WSJ poll.

What’s striking, too, is that despite all the efforts to demonize him, 74% still approve – strongly or somewhat – of the President “as a person”. Presumably the 14% who strongly disapprove are made up of Tea and Firebaggers? Must try harder at that demonizing 😉

moneygall mania

Okay, you all know that ‘There’s No One as Irish as Barack Obama’ song? Well, it’s been re-made – same tune, but now it’s called ‘Welcome Home President Barack Obama’. 😕

They made a video for it in Moneygall on Saturday, here’s a slideshow of photos from the day:

st patrick’s day

Sorry, but it has to be done:

😕

Supporters of US Democratic presidential candidate and Illinois Senator Barack Obama drink as they watch election results from Ollie Hayes Pub on November 4, 2008 in Moneygall, Co Offaly, in Ireland. Historians have unearthed records showing Obama’s maternal ancestors lived, worked, married and had children in the Moneygall area more than 150 years ago. Fulmuth Kearney, who is Obama’s third great-grandfather, left Moneygall for New York in 1850 to eventually settle in Ohio

Sadly, not much to celebrate in Ireland these days – the unemployment rate has just hit ….. ready for this? ….. 14.7%.

About three years ago, Ireland’s economy, which was, in fact, built on sand, was the envy of Europe, but the unregulated financial sector brought the country to its knees – sound familiar?

Same story everywhere, the same corrupt, greedy ******s bringing the good people down – we’re all in this together 😉
