Obama’s Popularity Plummets Because of the Progressives Poverty of Spirit & Soul

During the past 4 years, we have witnessed (in horror) the ascent of Obama and Progressives as they have gone about destroying America and her Constitution. We have also witnessed the vacuous nature of the Progressives and their hateful, pernicious ideology.

Progressivism is selfish, a self-indulgent salve used to cover immaturity and  self-loathing.

Some of the most telling, inane comments ever heard include:

The one time comedian, Bill Maher whining while he defames God, religion, the Tea Party etc. “Where’s the equivalent of my Tea Party?” Ya Bill, I wonder why there isn’t a Tea Party type organization for people like you?

One self proclaimed “enlightened” talker on radio was heard boasting, “Since there is no God we have to do the hard work for those unfairly treated by society!” Ah, ya; sounds like you’d be a good fill-in for God.

A recent portrayal of Abe Lincoln on the History Channel was not immune. In one segment, the show declared that it was rumored that Honest Abe had a tendency to sleep with one man in particular, ergo he must be … well, you know.

As Obama's ratings go down, the Progressives hysteria goes up!

Obama has said that his salvation is dependent on collective salvation. What a hideous concept!

Can you imagine trading your individual relationship with God for the hope that the dolt next to you does the “right thing” in accordance to the day’s latest policy pronouncement.

As the ham handed Progressives and Team Obama implemented their radical left agenda, smashing the dreams and ideals of citizens of every color and persuasion, people of conscious raced as far away from them as quickly as possible.

Obama’s approval ratings are so low that White House insiders are wondering if there’s a way they “kill” Osama bin Laden a second time!

As Obama’s ratings plummet along with the repudiation of his “Progressive” policies, his supporters in the MSM, labor, in Congress continue  to be more strident and hysterical.  Their poisonous rhetoric demonstrates how frustrated, disillusioned, angry…AND CLUELESS they really are!

They don’t get it. It’s not about pretty speeches, it’s about policies that bring RESULTS; and that means jobs, secure borders, the freedom to choose the health care that is best for our families and not dictated by some central government agency!

Robin over at American Thinker opines:


The left wants to tear Americans down.  Just as the Weatherman did to those naive lost kids, they want to break our spirits.  This goal of degradation is more crucial than their one-world government.

The progressives want to turn us into them, to make us feel as deprived and depraved and deadened.  It’s the only way that they can silence the roar of shame and self-loathing.

What they don’t understand is this: it’s not going to happen.  There are too many of us who won’t be hypnotized, who have a light in us that will not be extinguished.

We see right through them.  We know who they are: the most piteous of human beings, and the most dangerous.  Men without a country, orphans far from home.  The forsaken and disowned.

They’re “hungry ghosts,” to use a Tibetan phrase: tormented beings who are starving to death from an inner void that they cannot fill, no matter how much they try.

Mother Teresa was once asked how she coped with serving the poorest of the poor in Calcutta.  She responded that what she saw in the cities of the United States was much more disturbing, because it was a “poverty of the spirit.”

Poverty of the spirit.  No truer words can be spoken of the progressive left.  And they want nothing more than impoverishing your spirit as well.


The cracks are becoming apparent.  They are small cracks … but cracks they are.  Buyers remorse is showing up in unexpected places like  MSNBC for starters.

First there was Keith Olbermann’s  (10 minute) epiphany with Professor Jonathan Turley as they decried Obama’s change of heart about unlawful surveillance and wiretapping . . . because (surprise! NOT!) he’s going further than Bush 43!

Two days ago I was over at NO QUARTER and found that Rachael Maddow was wringing her hands about Obama. Will wonders never cease?

Hat tip to Texas Darlin for the next “heads up”  detailing an article written by Ted Rall, in the State Journal-Register.  Mr. Rall, a Obama supporter, is now calling for him to resign.  Here’s some of what he has to say about Fauxbama:


But the gap between the soaring expectations that accompanied Barack Obama’s inauguration and his wretched performance is the broadest such chasm in recent historical memory. This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through.

From health care to torture to the economy to war, Obama has reneged on pledges real and implied. So timid and so owned is he that he trembles in fear of offending, of all things, the government of Turkey. Obama has officially reneged on his campaign promise to acknowledge the Armenian genocide. When a president doesn’t have the nerve to annoy the Turks, why does he bother to show up for work in the morning?

Obama is useless. Worse than that, he’s dangerous.


Locking up people who haven’t done anything wrong is worse than un-American and a violent attack on the most basic principles of Western jurisprudence. It is contrary to the most essential notion of human decency. That anyone has ever been subjected to “preventive detention” is an outrage. That the president of the United States, a man who won an election because he promised to elevate our moral and political discourse, would even entertain such a revolting idea offends the idea of civilization itself.

Double Ouch!

That’s pretty tough stuff, but really Ted we told you so.  But did you listen?  Noooo! And Rachael, Keith, and Jonathan are you all so surprised that a man that broke campaign promises left and right during his run for the presidency is continuing to break them now?  You remember the Missouri Truth Squads don’t you?  You are all surprised, really?

One thing Ted Rall has right, Obama is dangerous, but for reasons not enumerated in his rant.

The fact is we have a man holding the office of POTUS who was never eligible to run for or hold the highest office in our country.  He was helped by the (God, I never thought I’d use this term!) liberal mainstream media and enabled by the courts, hosts political insiders who wanted to take the White House by whatever means necessary, and legal community who have, with few exceptions, remained silent on his ineligibility under Article II Section 1 of the C0nstitution.

Forget for a moment, that every law passed under his “presidency” is effectively null and void, which given the state of the economy has many benefits!

How did we get here?  It seems this country is populated by numerous “enlightened” persons whose elevated sense of self and guilt about slavery knows no bounds.  They decided (group think) that this country’s “absolution for its past sins” lay in Barack H. Obama.  Yes,  even if BHO was bi-racial, was only half black (years ago the term was mulatto) it was close enough!  So guilt and stupidity brought us here.  Screw the Constitution, we need to pay for our past sins!

I don’t know how this is going to play out, but a few days ago we finally got a reporter to ask White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs about Obama’s birth certificate. FOX NEWS finally ran a segment on Obama’s eligibility.  Now it is being reported that this is a very hot topic on the Fox blogs.

Like I said, we’re beginning to see cracks!

Oh ya, one more thing.  Let’s all sing, “Free at last, free at last. Great God almighty, we’re free at last!”  And why are singing these words?  Because now we know this country is ready to elect its first black president!  Now, can we move on?


Snippets in Obamaland that should scare the hell out of you!

I don’t understand why this story has received so little attention.  Both Drudge and World Net Daily and others have reported the following:

A home-schooled 16-year-old in North Carolina was arrested by FBI agents in February and is being held without charge in Indiana after authorities alleged that a bomb threat was made from an IP address in his home. A federal judge has put a gag order on the case that prevents the U.S. attorney in Indiana or FBI from commenting on the detention of Ashton Lundeby, 16. “We have no rights under the Patriot Act,” said his mother Annette Lundeby. “It wasn’t intended to drag your barely 16-year-old, 120-pound son out in the middle of the night on a charge that we can’t even defend.”

Wired on the other hand states that this is much to do about nothing:

It’s the false TV news report heard ’round the world. Raleigh, North Carolina’s WRAL-5 reported last week that a 16-year-old bomb hoax suspect was hauled out of his mother’s home by federal agents, and is now being held without any legal rights on the authority of the 2001 USA PATRIOT Act, which “supersedes the Constitution.”

What I find interesting is that while Wired would have us believe we are all atwitter over nothing it also notes:

It’s impossible not to empathize with this woman — a widow who saw her boy taken by rough federal agents and whisked to another state.

SO is the problem that when the story was reported the use of the Patriot Act might not have been spot on? If the authorities  weren’t acting under the Patriot Act then under what laws were they allowed to enter that home and take that teenager?

Here’s what no one disputes, a 16 year teen who has never been in trouble was taken from his home by federal agents and sent to another state.  The process under which he was taken is controversial.  His mother has been given little information by the FBI other than the charges . . . and there is a gag order surrounding the case.  WHY?

Team Obama railed against Bush taking away civil rights and stomping on the Constitution.  Now in power, Team Obama has changed it tune.  If this  isn’t a case of this family’s rights being stomped on, then pray tell what is  ?

One final note, the teen’s mother says he was a victim of  IP spoofing someone using his computer’s IP address to send a call.

Spoofing should be against the law.  I see no difference between this and identity theft.
