Bachmann now GOP frontrunner, and other news

Two items from new polls.

ppp

The first, from Public Policy Polling, queried Republican primary voters on their preferences. It reports that Michele Bachmann is now running even with or perhaps slightly ahead of Mitt Romney in a head-to-head race.

The Minnesota congresswoman maintains that standing when gauged against the full field:

Bachmann 21%
Romney 20%
Perry 12%
Cain 11%
Paul 9%
Gingrich 7%
Pawlenty 5%

It’s still very early, but a lot of mainstream Republicans have to be appalled by those numbers. With the circus underway in Washington and the popularity of Bachmann — a candidate who would be a fringe player in ordinary times — the Grand Old Party of Dwight Eisenhower and even Ronald Reagan has slipped its moorings.

It’s also interesting to note that although 57 percent of Republicans still have a favorable view of Sarah Palin (compared with 32 percent unfavorable), most don’t want her to run for president.

The second poll, from the Washington Post and ABC News, gets at a question critical to how the debt-ceiling debate is likely to play out.

wapoll

According to the poll, Obama is seen as the defender of middle-class American families, while the GOP is seen as the champion of Wall Street and corporations.

Bachmann is the flavor of the month for the religious right. If Perry gets in, her numbers tank. His are just lower because people don’t usually vote as strongly in polls for people who haven’t declared.

George W. Bush was a fringe player too, but he was elected and re-elected by starry eyed voters who could not see what a disaster he really was. So, don’t be supprised if these same voters elect Bachmann and we get another four to eight years of Bush era politics. It goes without saying these voters lack the intelect to see that their party is the champion of Wall Street and corporations. Bachmann knows that, like Bush, all she has to do is to appeal to them in the name of God, Country and morality. She also knows that any real discussions on the economy, taxes and other serious and complicated problems is beyond their understanding.

Fortunately, Dave R., I don’t write this blog for people unable to understand words such as “a question critical to how the debt-ceiling debate is likely to play out.”

If voters see the GOP as protecting Wall Street, not the middle class, they will look less favorably on the GOP’s opposition to tax hikes on the upper brackets. Most readers are smart enough to understand that concept, even if they don’t agree with it.

But as you make clear, “most” doesn’t mean “all.”

Put to comparative terms to which average Americans can relate:

Were the U.S. government an American household……

It would have an annual salary of $55K.

It would have annual spending of $91K.

It would have an existing credit card balance of $366K.

The current “debt ceiling” discussion would be recognized as what steps need to be taken to get another $62K added to its credit limit!

Sorry, Jay, but those proposing “restraint” over decades that are actually simply reductions in future rates of growth are doing nothing to resolve the key problem which is a government which frankly spends too much trying to do too many things for too many people who should be doing it for themselves.

Since Jay sees no wrong in anything that Obama has done or that any democrat can do his writing has the substance of smoke (it looks like something, but it is not). If a “journalist” cannot question everything and everybody in the same light, they are nothing but hack propagandists. And I think Jay has become a hack propagandist. His writing has no real meaning other than to stir up his little band of groupies here and really all they want is to wile away their hours on non-sensical political bickering trying to escape from their own miserable world in some sad pursuit to become relavent. They scream “Please, someone listen to me!”. And to what end? Nothing proved, nothing gained and nothing is going to change. They will still wake up in the morning with the same problems and their situation will be unchanged. Another words, the time that many of you spend on here arguing could be much better spent for yourselves and for society. But hey, that is your decision.

Well, all I know is when the missus gets one of them migraines the frying pan comes out and Lord help anybody that happens to be standing nearby. I just hope Michelle don’t get a migraine when she’s near the Nuculer Football or maybe meeting with the Russians or Chinese.

I’ll vote for Michelle but I’ll adopt a Towelhead into my family before I’ll vote for Romney. We don’t need no RINOs that signed Obamacare before there was a Obamacare and thinks it’s OK to just let the gays skate. Much less one that wears Special Underwear and will want to take the oath on the Book of Mormon. I can’t hardly wait to see the First Gentleman start a campaign to pray all the gays straight. All I got to say is Some People on this blog will be too busy praying to get on here and jaw about how mistreated the gays are.

Have a good night everybody.

Ticked off the BlogMaster again, eh? :-)

What’s the matter with the 4:52?

“The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered
by those who vote for a living”

It’s the assertion the number of those who vote for a living comprise a larger group than the number of people in this country who work for a living.

On the face of it, it sounds suspect.

your 4:57

I wouldn’t refer to a blog as a journal review, along the lines of the publications that feature peer-reviewed articles based upon research according to accepted standards.

But it’s fine as a means to consider opinions, evaluate their strengths and weaknesses and arrive at a conclusion as to how much weight to accord -

Does anybody else think that Redneck Convert is just messing with us and in reality is a CEO of a Fortune 500 company here in Atlanta?
