More Stimulus Needed
Paul Krugman says that another stimulus is needed to get the economy moving. (from July 2nd)
O.K., Thursday's jobs report settles it. We're going to need a bigger stimulus. But does the president know that?So let me see if I get this. The current stimulus plan will not create its jobs for about a year and a half. If you believe it will create any jobs at all. So another similar plan with results probably two to two and a half years in the future will fix things? You need a lot of faith in HOPE and CHANGE to believe that.
If there was to be another stimulus, I like the Republican plan better.
Is it any wonder Obama's numbers are tanking?
The public's disenchantment with Barack Obama continues to rise. Rasmussen reports:Just a statistical blip? The new numbers are out and they are worse for Obama.33% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -3.Rasmussen cautions that this could be just statistical noise, and notes:Tomorrow (Wednesday) will be the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted since last week's report showing higher than expected job losses in June.
Dear Leader's approval numbers continue to tank.So Obama's support has dropped 5% in just a week. So let me see. It is little under a year and a half to the next election. How will our Fantastic President's Party be doing then? Well I have more poll numbers.
Gallup has released a special report that puts the lie to Democrat claims that America has delivered a mandate for vast changes in our political economy along liberal-left lines. The data is worth examining, but the narrative itself is surprisingly direct in its conclusions:I don't think things are looking good for the Democrats in 2010. It is true that the Republicans did a lousy job with government when they controlled it. The deal for the Democrats is that they are doing an order of magnitude worse. Changes of that magnitude are hard to hide.Despite the results of the 2008 presidential election, Americans, by a 2-to-1 margin, say their political views in recent years have become more conservative rather than more liberal, 39% to 18%, with 42% saying they have not changed. While independents and Democrats most often say their views haven't changed, more members of all three major partisan groups indicate that their views have shifted to the right rather than to the left. ...
If Obama gets us into a war with his international weakness the Democrats will not only lose ground in 2010, the elections will be a blood bath.
No matter what this country is in for a world of hurt.
