What do polls matter to a lame duck?
Check it out:
“Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.”
Nobody ever noticed this before now at CNN? I mean, Obama’s no different today than he was five years ago. Obama’s no different today than he was in year two. He’s no different today than he was in year three. Obviously the big lie, which again, folks, remember, is very personal in nature, this lie. You like your policy, you can keep it. If you like your doctor, you can keep it. That’s deeply personal, made even more personal because of all the hype about the importance of health care to staying alive and not bankrupt, that the Democrat Party has made it.
This lie was told for years, day in and day out for years, and it seems to be the thing that has caused people to open their eyes and see Obama as he has always been. He was lying about Romney nonstop during the campaign. Nobody thought to make a big deal of it then. “According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively.” Sixty percent say he can’t. CNN didn’t use the 60% number. They used the 40% number to lessen the impact. “That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll.”
