Obamas Poll Numbers Are Doing Great. Keep It Up President Obama.

A pair of polls released today show that the electorate continues to sour on Barack Obama and his agenda after the State of the Union address.  Quinnipiac’s survey of over 2600 registered voters produces a 45% approval rating with a 46% disapproval, the highest yet from Quinnipiac.  Trust in government has plunged as well:
American voters remain deeply divided about President Barack Obama’s job performance, giving him a 45 – 46 percent job approval, but disapproval of both Democrats and Republicans in Congress tops 2-1. This could explain why only 2 percent trust government to do what is right almost all of the time, and 16 percent trust government to do right most of the time, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
While President Obama’s ratings on the economy and job creation remain low, voters strongly support the steps he has proposed to put Americans back to work, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University survey finds.
American voters still disapprove 54 – 35 percent of Obama’s health care reform plan, but they say 52 – 44 percent they want Congress and the President to keep trying on health care reform rather than giving up and moving on to other matters.
But how exactly do people want Obama and the GOP to continue working on health-care reform?  Rasmussen’s survey of likely voters says a wide majority wants to shred the current ObamaCare proposals and start from scratch:
President Obama this week called for a televised bipartisan summit to get his health care reform plan back on track, but 61% of U.S. voters say Congress should scrap that plan and start all over again.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds just 28% who think it is better to build on the health care plan that has been working its way through the House and Senate.
Support for and opposition to the existing plan remain at the same levels they’ve been at since just after Thanksgiving.
The Rasmussen numbers on ObamaCare look about the same as Quinnipiac, 58-39 opposed.  Majorities in every age and income demographic support starting over from scratch, as well as 66% of independents.  Democrats support building on current proposals, but only by a 53/35 majority.
The internals of Obama’s approval ratings look increasingly desperate.  Independents disapprove 40/49, as do middle class voters 41/51 ($50-100K) and 43/54 ($100K-250K).  He has now lost Catholics, 41/52, while Jewish voters split evenly 49/49 — which are two big red flags among- usually loyal Democratic groups, especially the latter.
Obama has now gotten two bad days of polling news, and one thing is clear: attempting to pose as bipartisan at the House Republican Caucus meeting and in the State of the Union speech did Obama no long-term good at all.  Voters still dislike Obama’s policies, and his demand for Republican cooperation hasn’t rallied anyone to his standard.  Republicans apparently managed to win the long-term argument from those appearances — which should give them confidence in standing their ground and continuing the debate.

Dean: Republicans 'Don't Believe in Science'

ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: With some climate-change skeptics using the record snowfall totals to argue that global warming doesn’t exist -- the family of Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., built an igloo near the Capitol and labeled it “Al Gore’s New Home” -- former DNC Chairman Howard Dean today blasted back.

In an interview with ABC News, Dean said this attitude reflects a GOP rejection of science.

“One of the most disturbing things about the Republican Party over the last couple of decades is that just they don’t believe in science any more. And that is not an approach that is likely to generate any kind of creative thinking,” Dean said.                                                                                                                                                            They told us the science was in and the debate was over. Well the science was fake and the debate is on again. But this doesn't follow the Progressive agenda. While the Republicans wanted the data that backed the science. They gave us voodoo cult science. The only ones that are fighting like it's the end of their religion are the American Progressives. The rest of the world is looking at this as criminal but the Democrats are pushing on harder then ever. Why would they be holding on to this made up voodoo science? Well they have a dog in the race. And a lot of money and power to be gained. That is why they are fighting so hard to keep the lie alive. The progressive minion are just too involved and put their name to that cause to just give it up. Their reality is changing and they can't stand the change that is coming. People will be making fun of those bleeding heart liberals that bought the whole global warming cult theology. When we say that global warming doesn't exist it's like saying their god isn't real. Theories come and go all the time. We need to ask why are the emotions so high on this theory if that is what it is to them? They act more like religious zelots then supporters of a disproved theory. When the data for the cold fusion experiment was found out to be false it was all thrown out. And then they started over again. That is what needs to happen with this theory. And because there is so much involved in this hoax there also needs to be the posibility that criminal actions be made if neglegence is found. In Time Megazine 1974 they had all the scientific evidance of a coming ice age. Lets look at this with cool heads and some common sense. Instead of just jumping into a progressive tax that will further harm Americans to futher a lost cause like global warming.

Read His Lips "Not One Dime" when it comes to taxing the middle class

President Obama says he is now "agnostic" about raising taxes on households making under $250,000 a year to help cut budget deficits, signaling a possible retreat from a campaign pledge.
In an interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek on newsstands Friday, Obama said a presidential budget commission needs to look at all options for deficit reduction - including tax increases and cuts in spending on such programs as Social Security and Medicare.
"The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table," Obama said. "So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions."
Obama repeatedly vowed during the 2008 campaign to spare households earning less than $250,000 a year from tax increases.
When top economic officials last August suggested going back on the pledge, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs quickly reiterated the promise.
Meanwhile, Obama Wednesday won over skeptical African-American leaders who agreed to join his effort to get Congress to pass a jobs bill.
At times, black leaders have criticized Obama for failing to address their community's hardships, but they insisted they put all that aside yesterday.
"I think he feels the gravity of the problem, and not exclusively as an African-American problem but as a problem for all people out of work. We need a jobs bill," said the Rev. Al Sharpton, who braved the blizzard here to attend the Oval Office session.
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous compared Senate Republicans with the Dixiecrats who 40 years ago blocked civil rights legislation. "If the Senate Republicans want to kind of keep on using tactics ... from the last century that were used against black people in this century, against working people, then we're going to hold them to account," he said.
Sharpton noted unemployment has hit African-Americans harder, but said the meeting was not a gripe session to complain that Obama has forgotten his own.
"He's focused on lifting everybody equally. There's not going to be an African-American jobs bill," Sharpton said.

May We Never Forget 9/11 Nor Should We Act Like 9/10
