Are Obama Supporters Jumping Ship?

It turns out that the people who made Barack Obama president are willing to play for the other team because of their dissatisfaction with him. Maybe the Kool-Aid is wearing off.

In a recent Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll, 25 percent of those who voted for Obama in 2008 will not be again in 2012 and only half of them say they'll even show up to vote. Time to sound the alarms, President Obama.

“He ran as a centrist. I don’t think he’s a centrist at all. ... His whole economic platform is the more government spends, the better things are,” Aaron Bonnaure told the AP. “We have a far-left government. The answers are in the middle.”

And guess what? Bonnaure voted for Obama back in 2008, but he’s now going to vote for Republicans during this midterm election.

To be fair, some Republican voters are just as unhappy with the GOP and are planning to vote for the other team, but for the most part, many Republican voters are more energized and organized in a collective message this campaign season.

The same can’t be said about the president’s message. His oh-so-inspiring words “change you can believe in” have transformed into “You suckers, I’m just like any other politician, but you believed me anyway.”

That’s why, according to the AP article and the poll, the majority of Democratic voters are the most disenfranchised.

“He’s not listening to the majority of the people who elected him. It's like he’s ignoring his base,” said SaraSue Crawford of Jacksonville, Fla.

And do you know why Crawford is jumping off the USS Kool-Aid? One of the reasons is the president’s prized possession: The health care reform law. Crawford is so upset with the debacle that she’s deciding whether or not to go Republican just to shake things up and restore “a balance of power in Washington,” the AP attributed to Crawford.

How sad is that when a former Obamamite (who says she might vote for him again in 2012 if he changes his ways before then) is looking to the president’s enemies to balance out Washington?

In the eyes of the president and his supporters, that’s like asking the mob to fight corruption in City Hall.

    I don’t think his real supporters would jump ship, only two years into his term. By ‘real’ I’m dismissing the phonies and there are phonies in both parties. Take the rebranded republican tea baggers, for example; they know their party is toxic so they change the name. That tactic only works on really stupid people who are entranced by slogans over substance; in other words, the base of the Republican Party. Anyone jumping Obama’s ship now were never really supporters in the first place. They were looking for a convenient scapegoat to blame for where the republicans brought us. As it is, he has lowered taxes on everyone earning under 250k while America’s dumbest have named a movement after a revolutionary era tax revolt. The bailouts which have been mostly paid back and which reduced the severity of the economic downturn and still being protested by these numbskulls. Obama needs to go after any and all bankers and CEOs who took advantage and send them to prison. Obama also needs to restore and get the public option passed. All in all, Obama got a lot of stuff done and no one can say what the outcome will be but he has governed. That’s what we have a government for, to govern.

    Obama is going down (in more ways then one). The DemoRATS that are jumping ship know this.
    Obama is a Traitor and a Fraud who has never BEEN President. The long arm of the law is knocking on his door.

    What a ridiculous post. I will respond, but wanted to forewarn you to have a dictionary handy in case some of the words are too big. First off, they are called Tea Party Patriots, not "tea baggers". You make it perfectly clear where your mind is by using a homosexual term to describe patriotic citizens from all political affiliations ( Democrat, Republican, and Libertarian ) that do not like where this current one-term White House resident is taking our country. EVERYTHING going on now is due to Obama's incompetence. He's been in almost two years so quit making excuses for him.

    *Secondly, you stated " he has lowered taxes on everyone earning under 250k..." which is totally false. Here's just a few links to have someone read to you:

    http://www.politifact.com/tru...

    *Matter of fact, thanks to Obama we will soon see the highest taxes in U.S. history:

    *Third, you said " Obama got a lot of stuff done... ", you got that right but unfortunately none of it is for the good of our country. I'm also going to add other tidbits of information that prove Obama's incompetence. Here's where you may need the dictionary:

    1) He lies constantly. Here's 158 for starters:

    1) He lies constantly. Here's 158 for starters:
    http://ipower.ning.com/profil...

    And here's some more:



    Here's some more lies to add to my above list:

    * During his campaign for the presidency and since, Obama repeatedly assured us that he would protect Medicare against cuts; but he now presses for passage of bills that include savage cuts in Medicare.

    * To obtain passage of his first stimulus bill, Obama assured us that 90% of the jobs created would be in the private sector; but as he well knew, most of them were to be in the public sector.

    * Early in the health care debate, Obama assured us that he had not said that he favored a single payer system; but he was on record as having said exactly that.

    * Obama gave primary voters a firm assurance that if he became the nominee of the Democratic party he would (unlike Hillary Clinton) abide by the campaign finance limits of public funding; but as soon as he became the party’s nominee, he reneged on that pledge.

    * During the presidential campaign Obama criticized the presence of former lobbyists in the Bush administration and solemnly assured us that he would appoint no lobbyists to his administration; but once elected he proceeded to appoint even more lobbyists than his predecessors.

    * Obama criticized the size of George Bush’s deficit and promised to stop deficit spending if elected; but he has already quadrupled the size of the deficit he objected to and recklessly continues new federal spending in the trillions.

    * When campaigning Obama criticized bills before the congress that were too long for anyone to be able to read and promised to stop that; but the bills he has been backing throughout his first year are infinitely longer (2000 pages) than the ones he criticized.

    * Candidate Obama promised an end to the corruption of earmarks and pork, but in the bills he has supported this year there have been more and bigger earmarks than ever before.

    * Candidate Obama promised us that CIA personnel involved in the interrogation of terrorists would not be prosecuted; but his administration is now doing exactly that.

    * Obama assured a joint session of Congress that the health bill he supported (pre-Stupak) would not provide public funding for abortions; but bitter resistance on the part of House Democrats to inclusion of language to that effect soon proved that it did.

    * Candidate Obama promised that he would make sure that there was always enough time for the public to read legislation before it was enacted; but he has done exactly the opposite, repeatedly pressing for even faster passage of even longer bills.

    * Candidate Obama met fears that he would be a tax and spend liberal by promising, emphatically and repeatedly, that those earning under $200,000 would see no increase in their taxes of any kind; but he now urges passage of a healthcare bill that breaks that pledge in many different ways, and his unrestrained increase in federal spending makes more tax increases inevitable.

    * Candidate Obama promised bipartisanship and an end to partisan bickering; but in a display of especially ruthless partisanship his allies have shut Republicans out of all key meetings on his health care initiative, with the unprecedented result that domestic legislation of historic importance garnered not a single Republican vote in the Senate.

    * Candidate Obama criticized his opponent’s plan to tax employer paid healthcare benefits, and promised he would not tax them; but the bill he now backs will do just that.

    * Obama had promised that he would not sign a healthcare bill that would add one dime to the federal deficit; but the bill he now backs adds trillions in new federal spending, offset only by new sources of revenue that are both uncertain and more properly seen as offsetting the already existing deficit.

    * Obama coerced congress into passing his stimulus bill by promising that if it were passed unemployment could go no higher then 8%; but unemployment is now at 10%, and he could not possibly have had good reason to exclude that possibility.

    * Obama promised that his cap and trade legislation will create jobs; but its massive tax increases will certainly hobble the economy and destroy jobs, while green jobs in significant numbers can at best be hoped for, but never promised.

    * Obama has repeatedly assured the American people that if they like their current health plan they can keep it; but the House bill which he supported created huge incentives for employers to drop their coverage and shift their members to a public option.

    * Obama has just as often assured the public that under his health plan everyone will be able to keep their current doctor; but many are certain to lose their doctors when ObamaCare’s large cuts in Medicare funding induce more doctors to withdraw from Medicare coverage, as they also would were employers to transfer patients to a public option to save money.

    * Obama assured a joint session of Congress that his health plan would not fund illegal aliens; but his allies had been busy voting down amendments to that effect. (This was the point of Joe Wilson’s outburst.)

    * Obama claimed that Caterpillar’s CEO had told him that Caterpillar would begin hiring again as a result of the stimulus bill; but that individual immediately announced that he had said no such thing, and that Caterpillar would in fact be laying off more workers.

    * Candidate Obama promised that Guantanamo would be closed by January 1, 2010; but it is still open.

    * Candidate Obama promised that his administration (unlike his predecessor’s) would be so transparent that TV cameras (C-Span) would be there for key deliberations; but an unprecedented level of secrecy prevails as the final stages of Obamacare are negotiated behind closed doors and kept so secret that even the Senate majority whip admitted that he had no idea what was going on. Requests for Obama to honor the promise of C-Span cameras are being ignored.

    * To gain traction for his attempt to return a would-be socialist dictator in Honduras to power, Obama claimed that he had been overthrown in an illegal coup; but the congressional research service pointed out correctly that ex-President Zelaya had been removed for constitutionally sufficient cause by legal and constitutional means.

    * Obama claims that he wants a public option only to increase choice and competition; but the House bill would clearly reduce choice both by squeezing unsubsidized private health plans out of the market, and by setting rigid conditions on acceptable plans that would narrow available options.

    * Obama got caught in a lie about being a Muslim. He said his Christian faith because he knew that if people had known he was Muslim, he most likely would never had gotten elected. Here's the video of him being caught in the lie:


    =============================...
    The Economy & More

    * Noted economist Arthur Laffer is predicting a collapse of our economy in 2011. " The savvy economist has studied the potential impact of the historic debt, an economy hovering just above a depression, and the building pressure to raise interest rates when inflation rises in the future, and compares the ship of state to the Titanic".

    http://economiccrisis.us/2010...

    * He said if we pass his " stimulus " bill, unemployment will not go above 8%. October's unemployment is still 9.6%. Another lie from our Marxist "president".

    http://www.bls.gov/news.relea...


    * 1) Food for thought, On Nov. 4, after Barack Obama clinched the White House, the market closed at 9,625.28.

    In mid-morning trading , the day President Obama signed his massive Generational Theft Act into law and a day before he unveiled a massive new mortgage entitlement, the Dow dropped to to 7,606.53. Imagine if President Bush had presided over a 2,000-point stock market drop in the same time period — during the first few months of his presidency, Dems would be shouting from the mountain tops. I will also provide one brief example of Obama vs Bush and their stimulus plans and how the markets reacted:



    Bush: From March 2003 to October 2003, the S&P; 500 went from 835 to 1034 or 23.8%.



    Obama: From January 2009 through July 2009, the S&P; went from 932 to 879 or -5.2%.

    Source: Michelle Malkin.com



    Let us also compare spending. consider that from Jan. 20, 2001, to Jan. 20, 2009, the debt held by the public grew $3 trillion under Mr. Bush—to $6.3 trillion from $3.3 trillion at a time when the national economy grew as well. By comparison, from the day Mr. Obama took office last year to the end of the current fiscal year, according to the Office of Management and Budget, the debt held by the public will grow by $3.3 trillion.

    Source: Heritage

    In 20 months, President Obama added as much debt as President Bush ran up in eight years. Not only that but he has spent more than all previous presidents combined.

    http://www.cnsnews.com/news/a...


    This must make you proud huh? Read on, there’s more:



    In response to the deficit. Read this:

    http://blog.heritage.org/2010...

    One major point to ponder:

    President Obama’s budget would add $4.9 trillion in public debt from the beginning of 2010 through 2016.


    ****IMPORTANT****



    "Many Obama defenders will claim that the numbers do not include spending on Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush years. They most certainly do. While Bush did fund the wars through emergency supplemental's (not the regular budget process), that spending did not simply vanish. It is included in the numbers"



    After Obama made his stupid remark about wanting to double the capital gains tax rate, the markets took a drastic dive causing most to lose over half of their savings. Many do not have the time to build it back up again. Many seniors also jumped out of the market after seeing their assets drop so abruptly putting their money in safer investments. This caused them to take a major loss. Unfortunately, many younger folks did not realize that this was a prime buying time and sold off much of their investments too. Now Democrats will assume their normal selective memory and say that it was all President Bush's fault when at this point he was a lame duck president with both houses controlled by Democrats. Remember that Congress makes the laws that are then forwarded to the president for his signature. People really need to quit listening to MSNBC, NBC, and CNN and their ridiculous propaganda.





    2.) The Obama Administration’s printing of money has been absolutely unprecedented in U.S. history. He thinks that printing money is the way to pay off debt when it will undoubtedly lead to hyperinflation. ( very simply put hyperinflation means prices go up as the dollar loses it's value)

    Since September, the 'monetary base,' which is the measure of currency plus bank reserves, has doubled from about $850 billion to $1.7 trillion.



    3) Obama and his fellow clueless democrats love to blame Bush for everything. It's almost comparable to a disease. Get over it. Democrats are starting to sound like a broken record. Obama got in and made things much worse. Dems always like to reference the war when, in reality, both US intelligence and British intelligence provided President Bush with this information. When Obama was elected, the General, who obviously is a career military man, told Obama he needed 40,000 more troops. Obama said he will send more but not the 40,000 that the general wanted. Obama knows nothing about the military and never served a day in his life. It certainly seems like Obama, with his usual giant chip on his shoulder, was telling the general in so many words that he knows more about war strategy and that he will make the decision thereby placing our soldiers more in harms way.





    4) Obama hires marxists and communists and these types of people absolutely love control. Here's a list of characters he surrounds himself with: Anita Dunn, the White House Communications Director praises Mao Tse Tung, a well-known communist. She said that Mao Tse Tung and Mother Theresa are her favorite philosophers. ( she resigned) He hired Van Jones as a czar and Jones is an avowed communist. ( he resigned) Here’s some more of a list of shady characters who are/were in Obama’s inner circle.



    Tony Rezko, Allison Davis, Raila Odinga, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Bernardine Dohrn, William Ayers, Saul Alinksy, George Soros, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Robert Creamer, Rev. Jeremiah Wright in whom’s church he sat for 20 years and did not know he was a racist, Louis Farrakhan, and Mohammar Kaddafy just to name a few.



    5) He hires radical czars. People do not support his choices.

    http://www.rense.com/general8...



    These czars are all power hungry people that want more control over people's lives.



    Incidentally, Obama’s health care plan would absolutely give him more control over people's lives which he loves.



    ***Note*** In reference to who Obama surrounds himself with, ever hear the saying " birds of a feather flock together " ?


    6) Everyone knows there is mega amounts of lawsuit abuse in this country. That's not even up for debate. Enacting tort reform would clear up the courts from frivolous suits that are so common these days. ( remember the multi million dollar McDonald's lawsuit? ) We have so many lawyers that they will sue for anything and everything. Obama refuses to enact tort reform because trial lawyers donated heavily to his campaign. So much for looking out for the best interest of the American people huh?



    7) Concerning our health care, we have the best system in the world and it was obvious that the majority of people rejected Obama's healthcare alternatives judging by the wins in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia. Obama wants to force Socialism on America when the overwhelming majority want no part of it. It would lead to rationing no doubt. Both Democrat and Republican voters knew that when they went to the polls and voted Republican especially in a heavily democratic state such as Massachusetts. To add insult to injury and you can thank Obama, I know I do, Massachusetts elected their first Republican senator since 1972. The funny thing is that democrats tried to spin their losses saying it was most likely a vote against the last eight years of Bush. That is one of the most ridiculous statements ever but then again, you have to remember you're dealing with democrats who feel they can do no wrong. I also think these losses will continue in November 2010 as many more Dems get their pink slip. So live it up now as your Democratic politicians could very well lose their seats and possibly their majorities in both houses next election.



    8) Because of his love of taxation, millions lost money in the stock market through threats of doubling the capital gains rate. Millions of seniors lost much of their retirement savings because of this. Since the seniors are in the draw down phase of their money, they don't have the time to build it back up again.This could have been avoided but Democrats are infatuated with taxation which gives them more control.


    9) He despises capitalism and wants to control as much of Americans lives as he can get. (i.e. Universal healthcare and firing Chief Executive Officers) Obama despises success - both personal and in the business world. Obama’s socialist views deem that we "spread the wealth" even though not everyone makes an equal contribution to society.



    10) Here's some more lies.







    11) He refused to call it "acts of terrorism" and instead prefers "man caused disasters". An example is Fort Hood which was an act of terrorism.


    12) He has run all over the world apologizing for our great nation. This should make all patriotic Americans disapprove of Obama's performance.



    13) He cannot speak extemporaneously:







    If the teleprompter malfunctions, he gets " tripped up "



    14) He wants to impose cap and trade or better known as cap and tax. One study conducted by the National Manufacturers Association revealed this legislation could cost just the state of Indiana alone nearly 60,000 jobs over the next two decades. Other estimates assert as many as 3 million American jobs could be lost by 2030.



    15) Here's a bunch of your fellow Democrat " winners " that elected him to office. I bet these people make Dems proud..







    Lastly, Obama's supporters are jumping ship. Let's look at his most recent poll numbers:

    Wednesday, November 24, 2010

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 28% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14 (see trends).

    And you can thank Obama for the beating Democrats took on November 2nd. I know I do !

    You have a lot of time on your hands. Where were you when Bush ignored the 911 warnings coming from the intelligence department, or when he took us into war under false pretences, or when he allowed Chaney to plunder our treasury by way of awarding no-bid contracts to his cronies, or when they took away our liberties in the name of the patriot act…?

    Have any fun TSA pat downs yet. Feeling safe in the nanny state set up by your republican president? The economy was destroyed by the former administration. It’s only been a couple of years. Give the man a chance. What? You can stand it that a darky might save the day?

    Why don’t you learn to think before you suggest that others learn to read?

    (Although I do hold Bush responsible for the Patriot act (which I protested), and the bill he signed forbidding us to sue for defective vaccines)

    And I hold OBAMA responsible for the Stimulus package, the Unconstitutional health care law, the TSA Pat downs, and the wrongful report from Janet Napolitano and Homeland security wrongfully labeling returning veterans and conservatives DOMESTIC TERRORISTS.

    And My answer to IGNORANT POSTS is not that they 'learn to read', but that they learn to

    Still waiting for you to answer my long post in response to this...prove anything as incorrect. No response is an admission of defeat.

    You suggested that I have someone read to me so I could respond. Since I have no intention to obtain a reader, I’m not obligated to respond. Thus there is no defeat because; no reasonable person would insist that their posts would first be read by someone not being asked to respond, before the actual responder, responds.

    I’ll respond to what is worthy of response in the nonsense you posted above.

    First you post links to a site called “Obama Lies” which is not a credible source to quote from. The very site is biased and all its content is reflective of that just as yours are. For example is the tricky language about tax rates for those earning below 250k. You have cited a tobacco tax, stating that the lower classes are disproportionately smokers. We both know that Obama is speaking about income taxes, not every conceivable tax and that fact is underscored by the fact that the actual standard for what determines class is income. The figure 250k (pertaining to earnings) applies to income tax and/or taxes pertaining directly to reportable earnings, not retail sales. So all you have done is taken a tobacco tax out of the context of the actual debate about income, earnings and revenues taxes, so your point, sir, is irrelevant. However, we can still address it thus; the majority ...

However, we can still address it thus; the majority of tobacco growers, processers and cigarette manufactures fall into the upper classes. This new retail tax will impact them as well because more lower class people will stop buying their poison products.

    Your 2nd link is just more of the same; gives no evidence referencing actual tax law (nor any links thereto).

    In the post related to your 3rd link, you mention a “death tax.” There is no death tax. If you think there is, kindly post a link to the actual tax law (not someone’s interpretation). There is an estate tax, but you have not referenced this and I will not be responding to fictions or to misrepresentations for sake of propaganda value to those who like to spread false rumors. I can’t take you seriously when you don’t take yourself seriously enough to speak the facts.
    Your 4th link is not factual. Again you post a link to an anti-Obama website that makes lots of claims, yet references no actual tax law. Why not do your own research and make these claims based upon your own research of actual tax law and post links to that? I know why you won’t; because you can’t. You don’t think for yourself. You take your cues from partisan opinion-ators and bleat like a sheep in response. If you address and expect a response; think for yourself! Come to the table with a well founded argument of your own; not some prepackaged partisan lies from jerk-off websites.

    As for your edits and all the added stuff you want me to respond to:
    Some of it, such as his "promise" not to hire lobbyists; a promise he did not keep, I agree with. I think he misspoke (or lied) about closing Guantanamo (to get the peace nick liberal vote), but I don’t really care about that issue so much.

    Are you seriously only just figuring out that poiticians lie? I didn’t trust Obama from day one, because he is a lawyer. I’m not 100% behind Obama nor am I a democrat. I just resent hypocrites and liars who call Obama a liar. Your “death tax” being a case in point; you lost all credibility with me when you employed that term (deceptive speech = a lie) while calling Obama a liar. There is no, nor has there ever been, any death tax in the tax law.

    If you would assert otherwise, then prove it, by reference to some actual verifiable law under that name (death tax). Otherwise STFU and I will address the serious debaters over the din of crap being lobbed by those who just don’t know and can’t think for themselves, as evidenced by their posts.

    No one liked the bail outs right? So let’s just tax the crap of those who gained from them; those who were able to keep their misbegotten wealth; those CEOs who got huge bonuses for their incompetence. Let’s send a bunch of people to prison too; take their wealth and redistribute it, say, perhaps, back to the American people; the tax payers they stole it from in the first place.

    OOPS, I clicked the wrong button. Disregard my No vote. I believe that more than 25% of Demorats are jumping Obama's ship. More college aged folks are changing their minds about Obama and his group of cronies in Congress. Obama's definition of Change, is not what the voters had in mind, and was not their definition of Change. November 2nd. will prove how many are jumping Obama's ship, and the new Congress will sink his ship. Three cheers for the new Revolution, and the Tea Party members. We will take our Couintry back.

    Obama,McCain,Palin=Same Cabal
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

    I won't vote for Palin or McCain again because they could have stopped the Usurper Obama by speaking out against his disqualification to BE POTUS>

    BTW,McCain is also disqualified and is NOT a "Natural-Born" American. Military bases are not considered US Soil.

    My president, black or white. It is a shame for he had the makings of being one of the greatest presidents since Harry S. Truman.(I bet 95% of you don't even know about HST circa WW2). Harry S was of the caliber of George Washington. Alexander Hamilton people such as pixel heads know nothing about these great Americans...Obama was lead astray by the deep operatives of the neo-republican party,the party of war and economic slavery... Now this agents are jumping ship..I would advise sodaheads who know everthing and are still living with Mom and Dad to recycle incumbents and start over with a new group...
