Come and Take itPoll: Just 17% of Americans Believe the Government Has the Consent of the Governed

An American flag isNATION’S DIRECTION TAKES TURN FOR WORSE
 
Marist Poll – Americans’ views toward the future of the country have become increasingly negative. According to this McClatchy-Marist Poll, seven in ten U.S. residents — 70% — believe the nation is moving in the wrong direction while only 21% say it is traveling along the right one. One in ten — 10% — is unsure.
 
Poll: Americans see debt deal as bad for nation
It’s not just the stock markets. The marketplace of public opinion also is turning thumbs down on the debt-ceiling deal, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll. The poll found that Americans think the deal is bad for the country, bad for members of Congress who voted for it and bad for the poor, the middle class and the elderly. Americans think that the only ones whom the deal treated fairly were the wealthy and corporations.
 
That decidedly negative reaction comes at the same time that the American mood has sunk to its lowest point in more than decade. “They’re negative on the debt deal, negative on the outcome, negative on the process,” said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion in New York, which conducted the survey. The poll was conducted immediately after the debt deal reached among President Barack Obama, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and the Democratic-controlled Senate.

By 47-43 percent, voters said they thought the deal was bad for the country. Democrats were the only ones who thought it was good for the country, by 56-34 percent. Independents thought it was bad for the country by 49-40, and Republicans by 63-31.

At the same time, voters said by 79-14 percent that the debt debate left them less confident in Washington.

Democrats Playing Blame Game?

Sen. Paul reacts to Tea Party attacks

 

 Just Who, Exactly, Is Delusional? »
Isn’t it remarkable how the left is railing on and on about how the Tea Party members of Congress held the debt-ceiling talks hostage by demanding that there be no tax hikes? They have even referred to them as terrorists and suicide bombers, malcontents who ignored the heartfelt pleas of that paragon of unity, Barack Obama, to tone down the rhetoric after the Tucson shootings. More »

 A Poor Standard »
I must admit, as appalling as I find most of what the Democrats pass off as political rhetoric, I do enjoy when they start repeating talking points in perfect unison. Witness, if you will, the aftermath of Standard & Poor’s decision to downgrade America’s credit rating from AAA to AA+. Liberals immediately blamed the fiscal fail on the Tea Party in specific and the GOP in general. More »

Media Dwells On Tea Party Terrorism, Continues To Ignore Real Far Left Terrorism In America – By Tom Tillison With rampant charges of terrorism within the tea party continuing to be overplayed by the media over the debt ceiling fiasco and more sure to come with the historic downgrading of the U.S. Credit Rating last night by S&P, it seems to be a good time to remind folks of REAL terrorism from the Far Left that’s being completely ignored by the media. As uncovered by Glenn Beck and reported on ‘The Blaze’, far left radical Stephen Lerner discussed efforts to…

Automatic Debt-Ceiling Hike A Perversion Of Constitution

By Betsy McCaughey- August 4, 2011

The U.S. Constitution is the biggest casualty in the debt-ceiling deal cobbled together this week. Generally, presidents ask Congress for a debt-ceiling hike once or twice a year, but President Obama said he wanted to avoid another debt controversy before the 2012 election. He pressed for a hike double or triple the normal duration to carry the administration through 2012.

Don’t Shoot the Downgrade Messenger

by Paul Hsieh

Attacking S&P for the U.S. credit downgrade is like criticizing your doctor for diagnosing your cancer.

Brief – Monday, August 8, 2011

National Review: “The Obama administration and congressional Democrats are betting their political futures on the hope that the American electorate is ignorant and forgetful, and hence the memo has gone out to functionaries hither and yon, from David Axelrod to John Kerry: This is to be called the ‘tea-party downgrade.’ That this is said with straight faces bespeaks either an unshakable contempt for the mind of the American voter or an as-yet unplumbed capacity for Democratic self-delusion.”

With the skill of a born storyteller, Michael Ledeen weaves together key moments in the fall of communism. His insider’s knowledge of the interplay of complex personalities and Byzantine strategies makes a compelling narrative, one enlivened by his wry wit and flair for the dramatic.

In this call to embrace the worldwide democratic revolution, the author argues that global democracy should be the centerpiece of U.S. strategy.

bert.jpgRainbow Connection? Online Push Under Way for Bert and Ernie to Get Married on ‘Sesame Street’

 An online push is under way to pressure the producers of “Sesame Street” into having Bert and Ernie get married.

More than 900 people have signed a petition about the pair of platonic puppets on Change.org as of early Wednesday.

“We are not asking that Sesame Street do anything crude or disrespectful,” the petition reads. “It can be done in a tasteful way. Let us teach tolerance of those that are different.” The sexuality of Bert and Ernie — perhaps the kid show’s most popular characters — has long been debated since the roommates sleep in the same room and constantly bicker.

The petition also asks that “Sesame Street” producers consider adding a transgender character to the show, which premiered in 1969 on Public Broadcasting Service. The online campaign also has a companion Facebook page that has attracted as least 350 supporters as of Wednesday.

In a statement to FoxNews.com, the non-profit Sesame Workshop said the pair are simply “best friends.” “They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves,” the statement read.
