Here is a link to an article that analyzes the Gallup daily tracking poll and although there has been a slight dip in his numbers among his base, it is very minor and considering the blistering attacks he’s gone through, he seems to be teflon coated. Check out this groovy graph from Gallup.
He certainly has some work to do before the 2010 and 2012 elections, but coming off such a bloody fight on health care, I think he’s still doing pretty well, especially with his base. So stop listening to those bill-killers when they try to say he’s in big trouble with his base. Like I typed in a previous post, they are exaggerating that anger and trying to project it on others.
I used to be a very loyal Huffington Post reader, it was my home page on all 3 of my computers. I loved how they bashed Bush and Co. I only go over there now to check how the progress is going on them switching to being a conservative blog. I was eating dinner and I pulled out my iPhone, (yes, I’m one of them) and I pulled up my HuffPost app and this screaming headline said “Dems’ Only Hope for 2010: Make The Race About The Other Guy.”
I started reading it, of course, and came across this in the first paragraph…
Voters are shifting to the right; white antipathy to the President has intensified; the popular consensus backing Obama and his agenda has collapsed in less than a year…
Really? Go look at this post at Public Policy Polling that says just the opposite, his numbers remain strong, regardless of people not liking what the senate passed on health care reform. And of course, congress always polls low and even within the article on HP, they say republicans numbers are also slipping, but they wouldn’t let some facts get in the way of their agenda to portray President Obama and the democratic party negatively.

Bob Cesca’s Awesome Blog has another great post up defending Obama against unfair attacks. Enjoy!
In an effort to counter the “Republic party” and faux-progressive assault on our president as a failure, here is a partial list of some of the accomplishments he has either started or has implemented. Many of them happened in the first 100 days, but many more have slipped under the radar of the MSM over the entire 11 months of his presidency. I know many bomb throwers will deny that many of them really happened, I guess that’s the political environment we now find ourselves in, just deny it or lie about it. Feel free to add to this list in the comments. Many thanks to bacalove at Daily Kos.
- Reversed Bush ban on federal funding of stem cell research.
- The 787 billion dollar stimulus package provides hundreds of billions
of tax cuts and helps fund state programs already in place

…there is a lot more after the break Continue reading
Having been pissed off so much by Jane Hamsher and her thugs at FireDogLake, I went to Google and typed in her name. Woe, in about 5 minutes I learned an awful lot about her that now makes other things clearer to me. She was one of the producers of Oliver Stone’s film “Natural Born Killers” and even wrote a book about her experience on that film. It was financed by Time Warner, hmmmm, is that a corporation? I thought Jane was against those big corporations, but apparently not when they are paying her. Now that was a movie I would never go see, I hate violence in all forms and I think Hollywood has been sensationalizing it and making it cool by presenting it in a hip, fast paced way that appeals to impressionable “yutes.” Check out this link that talks about how the film was directly related to at leat 8 murders.
My fishing around on Google also turned up another link, here it is, that talks about other lovely things she’s done over the years, including the race-baiting photo of Clinton with Joe Lieberman during the primaries in Connecticut. Now I am no fan of Lieberman’s by any means, but this event does show the type of person she truly is. Hmmmmm, I’ll have to click a few more links on google and let you know what else I find about this person who seems to be showing up on my Teevee way too much.
Considering the hand he was dealt, I think President Obama has done a fantastic job in his first 11 months. Daily Kos has a post up about winners in 2009.
