CNN is not reporting that President Obama’s poll numbers are dropping into negative territory, but Rasmussen is.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16. That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll
 
The love affair with “That One,” seems to be ending.  The vision of Hope and Change he campaigned on, did not allude to emptying the change out of every citizen’s pocketbook.  President Obama’s negative numbers are like so many Americans personal finances- heading into negative territory and debt.
 
Rasmussen went on to say:
 
Most voters think health care reform is something the federal government should be addressing, but they don’t like the plan that’s working its way through Congress. In fact, only 41% support it now, marking the lowest extended period of support for the plan yet.   But President Obama and the Democrats who control Congress are pushing ahead on the unpopular health care legislation anyway. 
 
The price of freedom isn’t free.  It is not an alienable right in America that a citizen gets necessities for free, and certainly not forever.  America was not founded upon being a welfare state, but that is exactly what we are becoming.  One thing you can’t call Obama, is a liar.  In conversation with Joe The Plumber, he told us exactly what his intentions were- to share the wealth, take us down a path to socialism and into a new world order.
 
CNN and the networks remain faithful in the love affair with the President.  He did just receive the Nobel Peace Prize, negotiate (without congressional authority I might add) a deal at the U.N. Climate Change meeting in Copenhagen, a speech on the economy pre-empting Charlie Brown, and reiterated our commitment to Afghanistan by offering another 30,000 U.S. troops. 
 
With so much accomplished in one week, wouldn’t you think the trending numbers would be skyrocketing in his approval rating?  What is bad for the President is apparently good for Fox News.  Fox is seeing huge increase in ratings because many Americans do not like how, and where the President is leading the nation.   Are so many Americans coming to think like Rush Limbaugh in that they want him to fail so he will not be re-elected?  How will  this bode for the Republicans and conservatives next year?

Their is gross incompetence at the highest levels of government and our elected officials on both sides of the aisle aren’t doing the job we hired them to do. I also need to point out that I’m not promoting some type of carefree attitude either where you just throw your hands up in the sky and never get involved in politics. I’m simply suggesting that we need to take a step back and see government, politics, and the political debate for what it truly is an extension of the spiritual realm disguised as an entirely earthly body.http://www.lookupfellowship.com/2009/11/now-playing-order-out-of-chaos.html  
Voters were misled that Obama, “That One,” was the One to lead us towards solving not only America but the world’s problem.  He is no Messiah, and heaven forbid if the current health care reform bill passes.  Likely, there are more words in it than in the Bible.  The Bible being the best selling book on earth is also the one book that most people have never read and like the bill, most won’t read every word of it either.
 
Thinking about the Bible, it would appear God’s polling numbers are up.  For most Americans, the December holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year.  According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 52% consider the holidays joyous, a five-point jump in joy since last year at this time.
 
The vast majority (86%) of Americans say they will be celebrating Christmas this year. Four percent (4%) will observe Hanukkah, three percent (3%) will celebrate Winter Solstice or Yule, and one percent (1%) will take part in some other religious observance. 
 
 In the meantime, The White House will be mailing Holiday Cards, rather than Christmas Cards. 

I wonder if anyone at the White House will remember these images for use in the holiday cards from the leader of the free world, and current resident at the White House?

Just when you think you’ve heard it all in the election cycle, comes along more fuel to the fire with columnist, Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post blathering on why the Republicans lost this year’s election, and it’s all God’s fault.  She writes at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/18/AR2008111802886.html 

“Three little letters, great big problem: G-O-D. I’m bathing in holy water as I type. To be more specific, the evangelical, right-wing, oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is what ails the erstwhile conservative party and will continue to afflict and marginalize its constituents if reckoning doesn’t soon cometh.  Simply put: Armband religion is killing the Republican Party.”

People have legitimate positions on all sides of these issues and we don’t have to agree with all of them, but a description of the oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is rather offensive. Socially conservative positions may not be the popular vote, but to suggest that a whole group of people leave their values behind is ludicrous.  Religion is very personal thing, but not necessarily private.  The gorilla she professes as a God problem is really the abortion issue. Obama made clear his support for the policy of federal funding and with regard to his personal life, saying that if his daughter’s made a mistake, he wouldn’t want them punished for the rest of their lives.  Did Obama learn this from Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church, The Koran, The Bible?

History will tell us of the consequence of voting for Obama and his selection of pro-abortion former U.S. senator Tom Daschle of South Dakota as his Health and Human Services Secretary. His announcement came on The Feast Day of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, the patroness of Catholic hospitals.  It strikes me that proposition 8 in California, was defeated by the those same socially conservative voters that elected Obama.

In his homily before the election November 3, 2008,  Most Reverend Robert W. Finn
Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph http://whitearoundthecollar.blogspot.com/ wrote in part , ” In a country where we have made choice an absolute, we must remember that underlying every choice is a value; that flowing from every choice is a consequence; that we must give an accounting to God for what we decide.” 

“The recent election was principally decided out of concern for the economy, for the loss of jobs and homes and financial security for families, here and around the world. If the election is misinterpreted ideologically as a referendum on abortion, the unity desired by President-elect Obama and all Americans at this moment of crisis will be impossible to achieve,” said, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), voiced hope for the Obama Administration but pointed to possible obstacles to our desired unity. http://www.usccb.org/comm/archives/2008/08-174.shtml

Pope Benedict XVI delivered this message at the general audience in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City on November 12, 2008, “Our life in this world, marked by trials and tribulations, must be inspired by the hope of heaven and the expectation of our resurrection to glory.”  http://zenit.org/article-24235?l=english 

If the abandonment of God and his public followers is the way to garner votes for the GOP, it is a sad reflection on our society.    Whether one defines themselves as Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran, Mormon, Muslim, Orthodox, Baptist or as she refers to the Evangelicals, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangelicalism we should define ourselves in theocracy with the love of God and country and if that means wearing an armband for unborn children, then so be it.

“So while insulting G-O-D, she also insulted people like me. Like you. People who insist on infusing their faith into their politics. And that’s okay; I’d rather be in the oogedy-boogedy section of Heaven (God willing), than in the hoity-toity room of hell, where’s there possibly very little elbow room.”  http://actsoftheapostasy.blogspot.com/2008/11/rise-up-ye-oogedy-boogedy-of-god.html

“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but to lose his soul?”  

God Bless America.
