combating liberalism and other childish notions

It isn’t clear as to whether or not the poll takers were donning swastikas, but the latest Quinnipiac poll of registered voters shows that the job approval numbers of President Barack Obama are slipping – some might say plummeting. In fact, presupposing that no right-wing, nazi-like “astroturf” conspiracy was at play here (and who could ever be sure), precisely one half of those polled say that they approve of the job the President is doing – down seven points from late June. Meanwhile, his “disapproval” numbers are up nine points, from 33% to 42%.

Digging a bit deeper, 49% say they disapprove of the way The One is handling the economy, compared to 45% who do. And yes, by a margin of 52-39, the poll shows that registered voters disapprove of Obama’s health care overhaul. (The poll is silent on the percentage of those 52% who wear, own or have access to swastikas).

From Bloomberg:

Americans are upset about rising unemployment and worried that health-care plans making their way through Congress will add to the U.S. budget deficit, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Hamden, Connecticut-based polling institute. The combination has helped drive down the president’s ratings.

A “willingness to give him the benefit of the doubt is, among some voters, evaporating,” Brown told reporters in Washington yesterday.

We will undoubtedly hear how this evaporating acclaim for President Obama is all the sinister work of conspiring “astroturf” right-wingers. Some will be labeled racist; others as egomaniacal, self-serving, apathetic narcissists; others still as edacious, money-gluttonous, corporate lap dogs. Obama’s shrinking numbers will be explained away as being spearheaded by angry, string-pulling conservative ideologues who dispatch talking-point right-wing automatons out into the world to disrupt the innocent prosecution of town hall democracy.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – as I’ve alluded to – has accused these town hall meeting attending Americans who oppose the government takeover of the health care system as being swastika carriers. Across the board, from the leftist end of the arena, the “movement” to preserve our liberty has been (and will continue to be) dismissed as being nothing more than “manufactured” rabble rousing – hence, the clever new bumper sticker term “astroturf” (which is the artificial antithesis to a “grass roots” movement, which apparently only liberals are capable of participating in).

Liberals control the White House, Congress, the Supreme Court, the overwhelming vast majority of newspapers, all but one of the major television news outlets, the entertainment industry and academia.

Yeah, it’s us.
