What do polls have to do with it. Government doesn’t work. Watch what happens, for instance, when we give Haiti a few more billion.
That country won’t work any better than anything else these guys do. Pouring money into feel good projects is like “allowances ” for spoiled teenagers. It makes you feel better that your being fair and responsible. The kid’s still an idiot. Same with welfare. Handouts don’t work. Government programs to cure social ills are doomed to fail.
But don’t take my word for it just look at our cities. Or all of our largest states for that matter. will it ever change? Of course not.Therefor we can simply expect more of the same.
All we have to do is figure a way to get in on the take while it last because bitching about it ain’t working.
Nearly half of all Americans say Obama is not delivering on his major campaign promises, and a narrow majority have just some or no confidence that he will make the right decisions for the country’s future.
More than a third see the president as falling short of their expectations, about double the proportion saying so at the 100-day mark of Obama’s presidency in April. At the time, 63 percent said the president had accomplished a “great deal” or a “good amount.” Now, the portion saying so has dropped to 47 percent.
Republicans are particularly critical of Obama’s efforts in general and on big domestic and foreign issues. Just 20 percent of Republicans approve of his overall job performance, compared with 87 percent of Democrats. That partisan gap is bigger than any that Presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush or Ronald Reagan ever faced among the general public. It’s about on par with divergent ratings of George W. Bush across his second term.
