ABC news provides a helpful round up of the latest national poll on national politics, in PDF with plenty of detail, that shows a continued fall in approval ratings for the Obama administration, in nearly every area of domestic policy. These polls could make it more difficult for Obama and Congress to impose health-care socialism, so that’s something to celebrate; it is also striking that opposition to another stimulus package has grown to two thirds. After three failed stimulus attempts, could it be that people are figuring out the scam here?
The news “analysis” says it’s no big deal because Reagan’s polls fell for two years straight after being elected. But, look, there’s a difference. The Reagan administration wisely saw the need to tolerate recession, reign in money inflation, and cut taxes. The Obama administration is doing the opposite, waging war on recession through money inflation, vast spending, and regulation, setting up a likely scenario for a yet another crash and prolonged pain.
Democracy: the system in which people enjoy the freedom to tell pollsters that they are against idiotic policies after the policies are tried, and before they are tried again.
