    55% of those polled are in favor of REPEALING OBAMACARE.

    43% do NOT like the way the government spends our tax dollars.

    50% think all the NEW OBAMA REGULATIONS only hurt our economy.

    50% say Obama owes GW Bush an apology for his remarks During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama said it was “unpatriotic” for President
    George W. Bush to add $4 trillion dollars to the national debt. More than $6 trillion dollars has been added to the debt since President Obama took office.

    Cry on some more delusional libbies.

  • Van

    What happens when you make $10,000.00 a year and your credit cards are $20,000.00 a year? You go bankrupt. That’s we are heading. Thank you Obama! My great, great grand kids will be paying 50% taxes. If they are like me, power is signing the front of the check while the Dems sign the back of their pay check. You don’t have to go to collage to know how to take a dollar and make ten.

  • Chriscee

    Sorry USA8888…no where in the polls does it say what you claim it says. I read the entire poll. Either you can read or you can’t comprehend polling numbers.

    Apparently it’s you…that needs a higher education than just kindergarten.

    1+1= 2

    Do you run you checkbook with a negative balance and then just keep spending..Apparently you must.

    Good Luck with that.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Fox destroys the competition.

    Could it be that the people are catching on to the bill of goods the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media sold them.

    Maybe and you lefties will never win another election without trust in your propaganda wing. They are your life’s blood! They die…you die.

  • Chriscee

    63% of the people think Obama should reinstate the White House tours. That Obama is being petty.

    48% think Obama has truly exaggerated the sequestration.

    85% think the Federal Government should have a balanced budget.

    So there you have it….keep denying it…..facts are facts…

  • Sicilian Papa

    Inflation is through the roof. Worth repeating, a loaf of bread on sale is now 2.39 a loaf. When Obama took office that same loaf of bread on sale 1.49 a loaf.

    Hey buddy can you spare 1,000,000 Lira..ah I mean dollars for a loaf of bread.

    Keep printing money and raising taxes on Stop & Shop and Big Y, the rich.

    O. a man who never even ran a hot dog stand.

  • Chriscee

    Why are employees blaming their employers for less money in their pay checks….after Obama RAISED THEIR TAXES IN JANUARY.

    These are the LOW INFORMATION VOTERS……who do not know that Obama raised their taxes.

    Americans need to get educated.

  • Cathy

    On my way to the store a Chevy Suburban 4×4 with a standard v8 pulled in front on me. There was only one person in the car. She proudly showed her liberal support with six sticker on the back of her car. “Obama 2008″ “Pro-choice”, “Not a Republican” “Obama 2012″ ” “Guns kill people Gun control now” and the best one…. “Climate Change is Real Bush was FAKE!”

    I thought about pulling up next to her and asking about Climate Change, but my son said, “Don’t do it mom. She may have a gun.”

    Yep my son was joking. He is quick with his wit. But it reasonable to think that a people who would put a Climate change bumper sticker on a car that get 10 MPG. Would likely carry a gun but be for gun control.

  • moncon

    Looks like a few in here are a little testy judging from their rude posts and disrespectful comments. It’s OK, you won the election. But soon enough the makers won’t have enough for the takers and then those of us who did not eat up Dear Leader’s false promises will be saying Told You So. I know I will be ready, I don’t live beyond my means unlike our government.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–you are all wrong–1) you’ve been listening Fox Fake News. Obamacare has not been fleshed out yet completely but the important thing is that the Supreme Court ruled in Obama’s favor. Obamacare will result in hundreds of billions saved on medical costs, pre-conditions eliminated, etc–and everybody wants this. The GOP’s 100% healthcare increase every 10 years are UNSUSTAINABLE. 2) Regulations are essential, especially Wall Street Regs and everybody wants them; they want gun regs, too. 3) Bush contributed to the majority of our debt through unfunded wars, drug program, and tax cuts, which GOP voted for, by the way. 4) Most Americans favor the salvage of the US economy by Obama after Bush and the real estate and bank fraud crisis. 5) All Americans favor Obama’s superb work against terrorists–getting Bin Laden, etc. 6)All Americans favor Obama’s saving Medicare and Social Security, when the right wing GOP (Lian Ryan) want to eliminate both…..etc., etc….

  • Ratboy

    Did I mention that You Can’t Fix Stupid?

  • Van

    America is living on the government tittie. Time to pop,it off and grow up. The only Dem President that had a clue was JFK. “Ask not what can your country do for you but what can you do for your country”! Get off of food stamps, un-employment and support your self! Cut the entitlement. Go to work! War on drugs brought more drugs. War on terrorist brought more terrorist. When the hell is the war on jobs and money going to start?

  • Bobbyv

    He does not get credit for lowering H/C costs until he actually lowers H/C costs. Good work on the terrorists, tho from Mark2’s post a few pages ago the Liberals might not be happy with the drones

  • Jeff

    On my way to the store a Chevy Suburban 4×4 with a standard v8 pulled in front on me. There was only one person in the car. She proudly showed her liber……blaa blaa blaaaaaaa…..

    You are so quick to judge someone that may have many reasons to be alone at that moment. What a jerk!!


    I’m glad the Suburban owner’s pride irritated you. Your son was wise to tell you to mind your own business and not act like a crazed homeless person and attack her.

  • Ratboy

    Ahhh another polished and classy retort!

    They must have been giving stupid away free tonight :shock:

  • Jeff

    Silly Chrisee,
    43% 48% 55% 55% people think……. Fox Fake News stats don’t count, everyone(except a minority of Fox-tards) knows there rigged or do not add up. Accuracy is not a strong attribute at Fox Fake News…..Intelligence is not a strong attribute of yours.

    Nice try!

  • Jeff

    Did I mention that You Can’t Fix Stupid?

    Especially when you are a certified douche!

  • Jeff

    @the Liberals might not be happy with the drones………ya left out the extreme t-party right, Rand Paul representing the extremist agenda had a filibuster fit over the drones.

  • Bobbyv


    Not leaving anything out, I was quoting Mark2 from a few pages ago. US said everyone is happy with how the President is handling terrorists, Mark2’s view is that some Liberals do not agree. Nobody is saying they are alone. Are you saying the Liberals who are against the drones are extremists like R Paul?

  • Chriscee

    Once again….apparently USA8888 cannot read and comprehend what the POLL SAID.

    Try going back again, USA and RE-READING THE POLLING NUMBERS. I know it’s hard for you to believe that more Americans DISLIKE Obamacare than those who do like it.

    Please….go back to reading class and learn comprehension.
