Sounds about right for gallup! Lol.
Thanks GGail, I can’t believe I am first! Been away from here for a while, only been able to pop in and out and I am first!!!!! That IS a first for me!!
Wish I could spend more time here but it seems like everyone needs my help right now with mom’s hip op, dad’s heart trouble and my son changing schools next week (unresolved issues at present school).
I love the pic of steam coming out of PBO’s ears, I am sure there are many days that he feels like that with those educationally subnormal cretins from the GOP and the lame media. I am in awe of his calm and reassuring character, oh how I would like to be half as patient and pragmatic as he is.
Yup! he’s the Leader that we need for this time.
Hiya Sam ;-)
Hi Chips, LOVE this picture, they look so happy and so in love. Thank you! What a beautiful couple on such a historic day. It was a pic like this that was on the cover of either “hello” or “ok” magazine just after inauguration and in our local supermarket I got into a conversation with an elderly lady who was just as smitten with the Obama’s as I am. She said that she never thought this day would come and was so inspired by him and his story. I often wonder whether she still feels the same way now.I know I love him more now than I did then and he inspires me more now too. In fact he has made me want to be a better mom to my son, wife to my husband and daughter to my parents. I have a way to go to live up to his example but I try and it is thanks to this incredible man!!
I know I love him more now than I did then and he inspires me more now too.
I feel the exact same way.
Never ever felt the way I do about a president that I do for Obama.
Look at POTUS grin or smile in that picture, it’s worth a million bucks. POTUS and FLOTUS looks wonderful. :)
Whooo Hooooo, I’m in the top 10 :-)
How about Gallup is alot of B.S…..True ……True…..True!!!!!!!!!!!
I yearn for the day when we can line pundits and pollsters up against a wall… and then march them off to a boat where they’ll be taken to their own adequately appointed island to opine on whatever gets their yayas going.
You’re too flipping kind.
“line pundits and pollsters up against a wall…” and then use the fukcing 2nd amendment on them. The End.
Great job, chips.
Love the steam coming out of PBO’s ears!
ME TOO! FULL SPEED AHEAD!!!!!!! LOOK OUT GOP…PBO IS COMIN!’
I’ll agree and now back to the gallup poll
I bring this from the previous tread
Romney 4PM on the Blunt bill: “I’m not for the bill.” 5PM: “Governor Romney supports the Blunt bill” http://sfy.co/dgJ
I saw that!
Romney is a One-Man Walking Anti-Romney Ad Agency: Romney 4PM v. Romney 5PM storify.com/thinkprogress/… #storify via @Storify— Tally Briggs (@bardgal) February 29, 2012
And he wonders why he’s tagged a flip flopper. I’m so going to enjoy crushing the hell out of him come November. The added pleasure of crushing him will be that the GOP will be pissed off that such a “moderate” lost and will retreat to the trenches to become even more rightwing thereby freaking people out and losing more political ground.
p.s. This is my fervent wish.
Cheryllou is this true? Ann Romney has the nerve to try to blame someone else for her husband putting his foot in his mouth over and over and over again.
yes it’s true.
That Blunt bill is the precursor to Americas return to the era of the Pilgrams.
Romney flip-flopping on his flip-flps?…colour me shocked!!
Please tell me you are kidding.
Chipsticks – this Gallup thingy is scary
God, this is so perfect and hilarious. Chips I love you :D
But Collegekay, it’s not a whole lot different to an average day at Gallup :roll:
How are ya doing?
Lol, I am swamped. My 30+ page take home midterm is due Friday for my Sociology of Poverty class. :(
I’m like 55% done.
Hey, speaking as a last-minuter, 55% sounds a bit excellent to me! Best of luck with it Collegekay.
Plenty of time!
Make it 22 pages and tell them we’re in a recession. Seriously. Write that into it. I did that once – said all I wanted/needed to say, worked that into the theme of the paper that I was purposely NOT writing the required number of pages, because to do so would go against the point of the paper.
I got a giant A+++ and the Prof used mine as a great example…. blah blah something……
“Make it 22 pages and tell them we’re in a recession.”
:lol: You’re a bad influence Tally – Collegekay? Ignore her!
I would totally fail if I did that. There are specific questions I have to answer in this prompt, sadly. LOL.
Perfect analysis of GOPallup
Gallup is truly a farce. Undoubtedly after calling health care a downer for the president they will say that killing Bin Laden or getting North Korea to stop their nukes is really hurting him. Gallup is no longer a polling organization, they are a propaganda branch of the GOP.
Very factual statement.
You’re not wrong, Yardarm.
I whole hartedly concur yardarm756
That should be heartedly.
The Star Advertiser in Honolulu had a front page story that Obama is against earmarks and that will be hard on Hawaii. It would not surprise me if there were people scared by that story. Our island economy is pretty fragile in many ways.
What do earmarks have to do with the President ?
you mean EVERYTHING isn’t about the President?
Best. Post. Ever. (OK, at least until the next one). You are way too good, Chip. Way too good. I can’t stop laughing.
I would love your take on the new book on Obama’s economic team concerning the recovery. We should probably talk privately…….
Didn’t read, I have to admit.
There you go, making me blush again. But as I said to Collegekay, the real Gallup is the funniest parody of all!
That would do credit to The Onion…..in fact I thought it was.
Russ Feingold on Hardball: a noun a verb, “As I say in my book “While the Country Sleeps”………
Oh, and Obama shouldn’t take superPac money because everyone now knows him and knows he’s doing a good job.
By all means, let the lies just go out there from the Koch brothers………
“Oh, and vote for President Obama. He’s doing a good job.”
Gee thanks for that rousing endorsement, National Chairman Feingold.
I thought he did a great job. Of course the co-author of the campaign finance law has to stick to his meme. He really did stick up for President Obama about Willard’s crazy talk about Iran getting a nuclear weapon. I think his book ties into President Obama keeping us safe’ while the Country sleeps, its Commander in Chief protects the Nation.
saw that. could you believe that cretin? he never ceases to amaze me. :roll:
He was singing that same fucking tune on the Stephanie Miller Show this morning.
I had to turn the station. I can’t stand Feingold.
I used to respect the results of the Gallup organization, but with so many outliers they are now rivaling Rasmussen for being propaganda tools. How can any informed sane person take them seriously?
Good job on this satire, but these types of results from various anti-Obama organizations are becoming more like these results in actuality each day.
They (the anti-Obama forces) ARE becoming more AND more DESPERATE and HATEFUL each passing moment.
Me too, until I saw that guy on CNBC with his crazy talk about President Obama’s numbers and the unemployment rate. I knew he had been drinking that morning when the right wing guy was speechless; he didn’t even agree with him.
Sometimes I think people just like fcking with the poll takers. There are too many wide swings in a matter of days and without any perceptable reason.
Pay no attention — whatever result you see today will be different tomorrow.
OK, so I’ve done a bit more research on the whole Wikileaks release of STRATFOR emails that indicates that Israel has already destroyed most if not all of Iran’s nuclear program.
Yes, I latched on to it because I don’t want a war against Iran. But then I realized just who founded and heads STRATFOR: George Friedman. In an earlier decade, he was known as a “futurologist”. He’s written several books—the most recent being “The Next Hundred Years”, followed by the less ambitious “The Next Decade”. I tried reading “The Next Hundred Years” and couldn’t really stop laughing; I think I made it through two chapters, the last one being about how China would break apart into competing states—possible, but considering the depth of Chinese nationalism as China takes its place once again among the world’s leading powers, highly unlikely. This blog post clarified my thinking. Especially this part:
As Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies has pointed out, a conservative estimate of the size of Iran’s presumed nuclear weapons program would count some 400 separate targets. Let’s put that in tactical context: A U.S. strike against that target set, Cordesman writes, “could easily require 800 to 1,000 sorties and cruise missile strikes.”
We all know Israeli commandos are supermen; but even for them that’s a hell of a lot of commando actions to take.
And, yes, the blog comes from a left of center viewpoint. Just not one that drinks the koolaid. (Which means I just added him to my bookmarks.)
So, while I wish it were true that Israel already took out Iran’s nuclear capabilities, I think we can all agree that if it had done so the blowback from Iran would’ve already been felt. Pretty much, the only person standing between us and a catastrophic war is Barack Hussein Obama.
You can read the blog post here: http://www.russellburgos.com/2012/02/herbal-tea-party-wikileaks-stratfor.html
Mr Venetian/Newt-funder, is trying his best to BUY his way into a war with Iran.
They really want to make “1984” a reality. Perpetual war abroad and perpetual oppression at home. Actually, you know, that might be my next piece on TPV.
what do you see happening when Netanyahu visits…..
What I hope is that PBO lays down the law in no uncertain terms: You attack Iran, you do it alone, you’ll get no help from us. But I’m very fearful that even that even if he makes that threat that it won’t cow Netanyahu. I don’t think he’s a true believer in Eretz Yisrael; however, he is a true believer in power, getting it and keeping it. His coalition partners don’t care about the US or oil prices or any of that. Some of them do see Iran as an existential threat. And some of them are in service of the US right wing. Some are both. All of them see attacking Iran as a way to keep power in a country where it’s notoriously difficult to keep power. I feel like they think they have nothing left to lose. And that’s dangerous.
Lord …have mercy on us all….another war in the region…a war that cannot be won…..
My next piece on TPV is entitled “We are at war with Eastasia. We have always been at war with Eastasia.” 1984 is still a possible future if we don’t choose wisely.
“I’m very fearful that even that even if he makes that threat that it won’t cow Netanyahu.”
My sense is PO already had the conversation informing Netanyahu that he would be on his own. The bigger point is that “cowing” Netanyahu is not relevant. So there is no reason to be fearful LL.
One thing I have learned from PO is that only a willful idiot would try to force him into taking a position that he already told you to your face he was unwilling to take. So Netanyahu can do what he wants to do but he WILL be on his own and he knows it.
Oh, I have no fear that PBO will take us into war in support of Israel. But the fact remains that if Israel does go ahead and attack, Iran will lash out at us, even if we told Israel it would be on its own.
Of course, an Israeli attack would be one way to break the lockstep between us and them. People are sick of war, and definitely wouldn’t want a war with Iran.
You are more knowledgeable on this topic than I am but my gut tells me that it will not get that far under this President and here is why. President Obama understands oppression.
That is why Netanyahu said this President isn’t like the other Presidents. And he is right. He can’t play PO because our President clearly understands the situation on both sides. So if Israel attacks they will be on their own and my sense is Iran and the Israeli people know it.
I just did a google search and found this interesting article from Barak Ravid
“A senior U.S. official who is involved in preparing Netanyahu’s visit to the United States – and who asked to remain anonymous – said intensive preparations are underway to guarantee the success of the meeting between Netanyahu and Obama and to bridge this lack of trust. According to sources, the lack of trust between Israeli and U.S. officials appears to stem from, among other things, a mutual feeling that the other country is interfering in its own internal political affairs. Netanyahu suspects that the U.S. administration is attempting to turn Israeli public opinion against an attack on Iran, say sources.
Meanwhile, they say, the Obama administration suspects Netanyahu is using Congress and the Republican candidates in the presidential race to put pressure on Obama to support such a strike. The Obama administration’s suspicions concerning Netanyahu were further fueled after Netanyahu and his advisers briefed a group of senators and senior congressmen during the past two weeks on the Iranian issue, and asked them to pressure Obama on the matter.”
I hope you’re right, nospin. I have faith in PBO. I have no faith in the Israeli leadership and their enablers in the US right wing.
Israel’s never been much concerned with international public opinion. However, an attack on Iran would leave it a pariah. The US and the West need to put as much distance from possible Israeli actions as they can.
Thanks for that LL. I was more than a little puzzled by these claims that most or all of Iran’s nuclear program had been wiped out, so this is really interesting to read. It seems highly unlikely, after all.
I haven’t the precise links handy now, but Robert Fisk in The (UK) Independent has been blistering on all of this recently, I don’t know if you read him. General link: http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/fisk/
He’s no friend of Israel (or PBO), but he’s excellent on what he sees as the deceit going on here, and the history of Israel ramping up the Iranian ‘threat’ when it suited politically. Netanyahu fans: avoid Fisk!
I like Fisk. I don’t like his anti-Obama stance, but he knows the Middle East—he’s lived there for the past 40 years, seen all its wars. I just wished he realized that PBO is pretty much the only standing in the way of a general conflagration. Hilary would’ve already sent the jets in.
I went to a talk by him a few years ago – it was meant to last an hour, but went on for over three, and nobody really wanted it to end. His passion is almost frightening. He’s lived in Beirut for most of that time (not sure if he’s still based there), and really has an extraordinary and intimate knowledge of the region, he’s not just a reporter who drops in and out. You get a real feel for how the people of these countries feel from his reports, which is what I enjoy most about his writing. I’m tired of reading stuff that features only quotes from ‘Government spokesmen’.
He loved PBO’s Cairo speech, but it was, for him, all downhill from there. Mind you, his feelings for PBO pale next to how he regards Hillary Clinton, good grief: he despises her.
Any way, I take his politics with a pinch of salt, I think he’s hopelessly inconsistent, but I still think he’s essential reading on the Middle East.
heh. Good for the good guys:
Bill Clinton says we should embrace Keystone.
That’s even going over Hillarys head!
He also thought he should embrace Monica Lew. . . .
I will leave that alone.
“I will leave that alone” – That’s what he should have said.
not surprising since good ole Billy Boop brought us NAFTA and began the process of shipping our jobs overseas. why does this tool think that we care what he has to say. seriously. :roll:
I got a chuckle :) Republicans like to call PBO ‘the food stamp President”….and even though their reasons behind it are faulty….look what happens to be the #1 driver of stimulus into the economy….oh, yeah, and those UI benefits they rail against.
I got these numbers From Gallup’s @SusanPage our latest national USA TODAY/Gallup Poll: R’s 27% and w/leaners 44%. D’s 25% and w/leaners 43%. (explains a lot)
Both Gallup and Rasmussen are republican leaning polls. Nothing they state is accurate or even remotely connected to what the mainstream is actually thinking/believing.
wanted to clarify once in a while they will come out with a poll that trends to what people actually believe but those are a farce to fool people into thinking it’s accurate.
But they can get away with it this far from the election!
Notice, Gallup does no state polls, because then we could check their work, so to speak!
I’ve noticed that and I’ve also noticed how they do no governor or senator polls either. It’s as if they are focused solely on Obama and trying to make him look as bad as possible.
Just got this email……….IF anyone lives near KC they can see FLOTUS at the Jazz Museum

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign says he does support an amendment that would overturn the White House’s controversial contraception mandate, following an interview in which Romney said he would not vote for the proposal.
The Ohio News Network reported Wednesday that Romney had said he would not support Sen. Roy Blunt’s (R-Mo.) amendment, which is coming up in the Senate on Thursday. The measure would let employers opt out of healthcare mandates that violate their religious or moral beliefs, including the controversial contraception mandate.
ONN correspondent Jim Heath tweeted, “Romney says ‘the idea of presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception…I’m not going there,’”
Romney’s campaign quickly challenged the reporters’ interpretation.
Greg Sargent has updated the story:
Truly, Willard is a walking joke.
Mitt changed his position soon after and decided that Willard the flip flop Romney is now for the blunt amendment.
He just can’t help himself.
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) chastised Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) on Wednesday for delivering a floor speech in which she suggested the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) might have supported the pending amendment that would ensure employers that have a moral objection to contraception are able to refuse to provide it for their employees.
“Stop invoking the name of a departed colleague,” she said. “Respect his memory.
“Ted Kennedy in one of his last acts here voted for the healthcare bill. He would never, ever support the Blunt amendment.”
The GOP is really itching for a hard smack across the face. When they invoke dear departed heroes like MLK Jr., Ted Kennedy, JFK, RFK, etc. and use them in their twisted analogies of racism, inequality, prejudice, and bigotry, I just want to smack them hard. The aforementioned individuals would NEVER and I mean NEVER advocate for such hateful policies.
Patrick Kennedy has already asked Scott Brown to stop using his dad’s name:

Interesting tidbit on this Redskin- stemcell surgery-

In a word: strong. Landry has been bulking up, as he’s shown in personal photos posted to Twitter. But the worry is that the five-year pro may not properly heal after suffering from inflammation in his left Achilles’ tendon, limiting him to eight games in 2011. Instead of surgery, he opted for stem cell treatment on the tendon. A healthy Landry, who boasts a 4.3 in the 40-yard dash, could help any team.

Now, this is how you do it!!
Please send Jim Messina some love, folks!!!
This is a bit off message but I thought there might be some that would be interested in the content. I will attempt to tweet it.
“I know God recognizes me as my true self, a proud, strong white man given dark pigmentation. God had to give the blacks at least one intelligent person, so he chose to give me dark skin.”
Is this for real Yardarm??
I can’t be sure other than he’s proven capable of such nonsense and I received this from a friend that is a lawyer that I’ve known for 58 years.
I knew the guy was a hate-filled piece of shit, but that just goes beyond anything. I actually felt ill reading it.
I did some digging and this is a satirical rag.THEY MANAGED TO SUCK ME IN. It’s embarrassing. Sorry. I’m going to my room. No milk and cookies.
No worries Yardarm! But you know the main point here …. it wouldn’t really have surprised either of us if he did say that stuff. A repulsive man.
I concur but I’m still kinda po’d that I fell for it. Pre-conditioning is a mother!
I’m the one who posted that supposed tribute from Limbaugh to PBO a while back …. before quickly deleting the post upon realizing he was being a prick. So, I’m in no position to go ‘ha, ha, ha’ :oops:
What in the actual fuck?
You almost got me… Looks like this site is similar to the Onion. LOL
Sad thing is, its plausible that he could have made the statement…
Preview of Bob Woodruff’s interview with PBO:
Interview with the Gold Star mom who will sit next to FLOTUS:
Chips, you rock love; embarrass them with their so called truth maybe they will start telling the truth. The front page should be send to Gallop, I do mean Gallop, not Gallup.
Thank you Lorraine! Maybe we should re-name them G(all)OP?
That’s a great idea!
Lil Ricky said Michigan was a “huge win” for him. Wha??? (Santorum supporters—-yikes)
“I don’t know if we will ever put a man on the moon but I do know Rick Santorum is the dumbest human being north of the Mason-Dixon line”
– President Chester Alan Arthur
June 3 1884
Well it kind of was for him. Romney spent over $4.3M to beat Santorum and at the end of the day he and Santorum split 30 delegates down the middle. So yeah. It’s a loss for Romney and a win for Santorum. Not a huge win as he so loudly proclaims, but a win nonetheless.
yup. he won despite being a dumb shit.
Chips you must have read my mind,. Earlier today I emailed Steven Benen and Maddow about the latest Gaallup Poll
@stevebenen @maddow it was refreshing to see Steve Schmidt tell @howardfineman take @galluppoll with a grain of salt.
@stevebenen @maddow it’s no coincidence, like clock work @galluppoll puts out fav #s for Mitt every 2-3 days before every primary vote.
Good on you bjw2, I’d love RM and/or SB to look in to what’s going on at Gallup, they’ve become a farcical polling company. I used to worry when I saw their figures for PBO, now I just laugh.
I about fell off my chair last night when Howard Fineman (He who talk to insiders), quoted Gallup on Romney’s behalf, and Steve Schmidt (Republican) abruptly adds, that he would take the Gallup Poll with a grain of salt.
That’s gonna leave another mark! Flip floppy, flips a flop again.
Here is the video of Romney’s original statement where he clearly states he would vote against the Blunt admendment, he later explains in a radio interview that he didn’t understand the wording of the question.
What does that say about a potential President that answers questions that he does not understand instead of asking clarifying questions?
This is a must see video!
They really do want to get crushed in November don’t they?
I have never seen a political party commit suicide, but that’s what we are watching, daily.
These folk are so encapsulated in their sphere of hate, bigotry, perverse disregard for women, and greed that they have no idea how isolated they are from most Americans.
They’ve been that way for decades, but they always keep it wrapped in the flag & tucked inside the bible. Not any longer.
They’d shout their deranged rhetoric from the roof tops if most of the broadcast media didn’t make it totally convenient for them to spew, non-stop.

My brother is a lifelong Republican who shocked me by voting for President Obama. We talked today and he brought up the subject of the economy. He’s said he’s very excited and hopeful and believes things are really improving. He thinks the vast majority of Americans feel this in their gut.

Thought you might! :) Thank you.
Here is Jim Messina’s letter to the #KochRoaches:
Campaign Letter to Philip Ellender
February 29, 2012
Dear Mr. Ellender:
I am writing in response to your letter, in which you portrayed the oil and gas executives you represent as average citizens trying to make their voices heard. Having built a campaign across the country from the ground up, one in which we encourage all Americans to engage in the political process, I believe that is an admirable goal.
But it is a cynical stretch to describe the political activities of your employers as furthering democracy when they are courting huge checks from special interest donors to pay for negative ads, with no public disclosure of the identity of those donors.
You argue that Americans for Prosperity is a grassroots organization of everyday citizens. But its emphasis on rolling back environmental protections and blocking a clean energy economy appears to be nothing more than an effort to promote the corporate interests of your employers and others who lavishly, and secretly, fund its operations.
Moreover, the negative ads AFP has run have been challenged as false by independent fact checkers.
The Los Angeles Times has reported that in 2010, Koch Industries and its employees marshaled hundreds of thousands of dollars behind the election of their Republican allies on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, who have pursued their interests in Congress. In fact, nine of the 12 new Republicans on the committee signed AFP’s pledge to oppose President Obama’s proposal to regulate greenhouse gases.
And now it’s been reported that your employers and those close to them intend to spend $200 million in an attempt to defeat the President. You note in your letter that Americans for Prosperity has tens of thousands of members and contributors from all walks of life across the country, suggesting that this is the source of AFP’s funding. There is one way to verify your point: disclose those donors for the public to make that judgment.
What is known about the Kochs’ agenda and business practices would give most Americans pause. According to the Kansas City Star, Koch Industries has enriched itself by keeping oil off the market, storing it in offshore tankers and waiting to cash in when the cost of oil rises. The Koch brothers have also been vocal critics of the administration’s investments in clean energy alternatives. Our energy strategy cannot be set by what’s best for the pocketbooks of politically-connected oil and gas executives. It must be driven by what’s best for the American people, our economy, and our energy security.
In your letter, you expressed the Kochs’ concerns about debt. We share your concern. That is why the President introduced a plan to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion and put us on a path to solvency. The Kochs must be concerned about the tax and budget plans the Republican candidates have proposed. Those plans would add trillions of dollars to the deficit by massively increasing defense spending to an arbitrary level, and extending and expanding unaffordable and unnecessary tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.
There is no campaign in the country that believes more in the active participation of Americans in the electoral process than this one. When you attempt to drown out their voices through unlimited, secret contributions to pursue a special-interest agenda that conflicts with what’s best for our nation, you must expect some scrutiny of your actions.
Obama for America
This Campaign is definitely not messing around!! And, it’s not quite March yet :D
TRUTH SLAM!! These little KOCKROACHES need to be brought out to the light of day! They will scurry like the damn parasites they are. Good for this administration and Jim Messina in particular. Not shrinking from this fight…bring it on!
Don’t understand the GOP strategy unless they literally plan on stealing the election…Again!
They’re gonna try. They’re doin’ all sorts of voter suppression tactics, most of which will affect minority and first time college voters.

State of play: President Obama will take his energy message on the road again Thursday with a speech in the swing state of New Hampshire, which he carried in 2008.
The president will appear at Nashua Community College to “discuss his blueprint for an economy built to last with a focus on American energy,” according to the White House.
It will be Obama’s second energy-themed speech in as many weeks.
PHOENIX — A federal judge blocked police in Arizona from enforcing a section of the state’s 2010 immigration enforcement law that prohibited people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day labor services on streets.
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled Wednesday that groups seeking to overturn the law will likely prevail in their claim that the day labor rules violate the First Amendment. She rejected arguments by the state that the rules were needed for traffic safety and pointed out that the law, also known as SB1070, says its purpose is to make attrition through enforcement the immigration policy of state and local government agencies.
“This purposes clause applies to all sections of SB1070, and nowhere does it state that a purpose of the statutes and statutory revisions is to enhance traffic safety,” the judge wrote.
