CBS Poll: 75% Wrong Direction, 66% No Idea What Obama Wants To Do If Reelected

This is weird? CBS actually released this?
A new poll found that 75% of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction. 66% of Americans have absolutely no idea what Obama want’s to accomplish in a second term if he is reelected. And, you have to go all the way back to Jimmy Carter to find a president with such low approval numbers going into an election year.

    Question is will the sheeple blame obama or congress

  • Gary

    Next question is why is there a banner to get Alan Grayson back into Congress on this website?

  • Black Sabbath

    Grayson ads on any Conservative website will be useless so Grayson is certainly not getting his money’s worth. Additionally, if I am correct, clicking on it will cause it to appear more, which costs Grayson more money because the web advertising company is signalling that Grayson is getting ‘hits’, and thus, success.

    in a second term… 0bama wants to make America like that of Europe….
    a complete and total failure, broken and dying…
    then force arabic and chinese as the new national languages only allowed to be spoken or written in the US. and everyone has to have gay sex with their brothers and sisters.

    and adopt the arab system of marrying 6 yr old girls. he also wants to make Islam the sole religion of the USA… while all other religions are banned…
    and bring back the old ways were infidels were cut down in the streets,
    and also using witch trials….

    so he could wrongly blame and accuse others of crimes/fault
    when the crimes/faults committed are really by 0bama himself
    this will be especially apparent when America is increasingly turning into
    a sh*thole from 0bama’s failed policies. *l*

    And yet nearly half of all Americans are still willing to vote for Obama.

    Go figure.

    In the end people get the goverments they deserve.

  • @ Bloodless…. I wouldnt be so sure about that one… I know only two of my family or friends who will be voting for Obama in this up coming election. And I come from a family who is overwhelming Democrat (for the life of me i dont know why)

  • Really?

    This could be CBS doing a “CYA”. They do have a reporter: Cheryl Attkinson investigating “Fast and Furious” as well when no other MSM is doing so. Their left leaning views haven’t changed but maybe they want to avoid the APPEARANCE of another John Edwards love child type coverup.

    The REALLY weird part is that lately the MSM has been releasing polls with samples that are actually somewhere close to reality. What I mean by that is that instead of oversampling Democrats by 14 points they only oversample them by 5 points.

    My thought is that their game here is to release polls showing Obama weak now so that they can change the sampling as the election approaches to show the classic “last minute democrat surge into the close” that always seems to inexplicably occur.

    Never ever assume these idiots on the left have finally gotten religion and decided to do honest polling. They are ALWAYS up to something.

    Obama want’s?? No apostrophe! This is why the Good Lord made word processors.

  • KLD

    No idea what Obama wants to do? These people aren’t paying attention or are in denial, then. I’d say he’s been clear on what he wants to do. Everything he’s done (or not) speaks loud and clear.


    66% of Americans have absolutely no idea what Obama want’s to accomplish………………

    try the final destruction of america making it all under sharia law bowing down to his mooslum A$$

  • He will probably go to war with Iran, Pakistan, or Syria just before the elections so that he can get the vote of the neo conservatives. Then while the war is going on, he will impose more gun regulations/ restrictions/bans etc., while the sheeple are glued to watching Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Jersey Shore, and/or Lindsey Lohan.

    If there is an attack on American soil, he will not let the crisis go to waste. He will tighten his grip and fundamentally change this nation into a corporate facist dictatorship. The Constitution is already on the chopping block along with our Bill of Rights. Wake up people!!

  • USMC Thomas

    It must have been a struggle for SØBama buttocks kisser Bob Schieffer to read those numbers. Guess he couldn’t find a way to blame Bush.

  • Gary Ogletree

    Obama is a Marxist Leninist. A Euro nanny state won’t do. He and his pals are so smart they will show us how to finally make the commie utopia work. There will be sacrifice and some animals are more equal than others.

  • Bonanza driver

    I could be wrong but I think democrats want someone else…If the Republican candidate is halfway appealing, then he/she will likely pick up a lot of crossover votes. Anecdotal I know, but here in Charleston, SC Obama bumper stickers are no-where to be found. In the previous election cycle, they were very very common. Often proudly displayed on expensive yuppie-mobiles. Sorta tells me that the vast majority of white suburbanites here are less than impressed with Hussein.

    #15, you may be on to something. The answer is right in front of our faces, yet some people see it, and some don’t.

    But why do so many people say they don’t see it? Ignorance and inability to understand facts can explain some of it. Blind party allegiance can explain some of it. Media bias and failure to report honestly can explain some of it.

    But don’t forget, the 75% also includes the people who are angry at the president because they think he has not done enough to bring down this country. These people aren’t conservatives.

    So I think the Dems might still try to recover from all this by running a different candidate – not Obama – in 2012.

    IMO, that different candidate would have to be a very far-left radical “progressive” who could plausibly run as a “stealth” middle-of-the-road candidate and still be trusted to stay bought. That’s a tall order–can you think of any rising Democrat political stars who fit this profile?

    (The Dems obviously cannot recover in 2012 by having the president resign now. The immediate consequence of doing that is unacceptable for everyone who does not live in a Homer Simpson cartoon).

    My conclusion–White House and probably the entire Congress will be decided by what the Republicans do over the next 10 months – not by what the Democrats do.

  • Yep, he has a lot of unfinished work to be done, and if we the American people don’t get engaged and take a stand for this country we are about to lose it. We cannot afford to split our votes this election, if we do we will have Barry the Destroyer in place to finish the job he was sent here by his handlers to do.

    Does The Wohn Himself knows where He wants to go?

    66% of Americans have absolutely no idea what Obama want’s to accomplish………………

    Well, based on what little information that people were able to put together AFTER the election what are they supposed to say –
    – Try to blow up the levee in Minneapolis like Bush did in New Orleans?
    – Crash a planes into ncaa tournament games and blame religious fanatic anglos?
    – Before shots are fired, unilaterally offer unconditional surrender and occupation to Iran ?
    – Grab the football and try to reprogram nuke strikes against Omaha, St Louis, KC, all the big flyover cities?
    – Send thirty million to re-education camps?
    – Put a sterilizing chemical in drinking water?

    How do you answer a question like that w/o sounding more radical than Obama, his associates, or followers…

  • Patty

    A few on the left are wondering what direction Obama is going. Stagnation in all directions. Obama has been a complete failure for American Progress.

    And because of all the Failures, the leaders are tied up in Court with Scandals and poor judgment calls. This is one process that seems to be routine. It is shameful that the division Obama has created between the Congress and between America’s Classes.

    I wish CBS would report on the his failures even more. Some major stories haven’t even been reported. Now, is the time for them to separate the REAL from the Phony and the lies.

  • “can you think of any rising Democrat political stars who fit this profile?”

    Just one, but it’s certainly not a rising star: The Hildebeast

  • Bonanza driver

    Hussein must be really disillusioned about a second term…He won’t be getting another trillion dollars in stimulus money that he can spend like a modern day Louis the XVI. He will likely face a Republican house and Senate. Therefore, his personal mission to transform America into yet another failed socialist state is over, second term or not….Of course, he will still be able to golf, party, and travel the world as Tourist in Chief, so there is that of course. I predict he runs a lackluster campaign not really caring about the outcome…

  • Militant Conservative

    Obama hasn’t a snow balls chance in hell. You are

    Gonna see wholesale destruction via EO since he cant

    get it through the proper process, all the while driving

    His numbers into the toilet. Congressional super

    Majority. Senate majority and WH all republican.

    Watch, America cannot stand the direction we are


    Powder is dry

  • Kate

    It is appalling that so many still support Obama. Just how bad does it have to get for them to wake up?

    CBS is done with the boy wonder. This report has a sub text. Yo! Hillary!

  • Fionnagh

    #6 And yet nearly half of all Americans are still willing to vote for Obama.

    Because nearly half of all Americans get some form of Federal assistance (entitlement), and because nearly half of all Americans don’t pay any Federal income tax.

    On that basis alone, Obama is a shoe-in for 2012.

  • JPeden

    #2 Gary commented:

    “Next question is why is there a banner to get Alan Grayson back into Congress on this website?”

    Yeah, I’m getting a lot of Commie invites and their various sloganistic ads, too, as well as from real businesses where I’ve recently unleashed my massive personal economic power to help save the nation. Obama’s “work” here is pretty funny as well as paltry by comparison. But at least it’s all making Hoft “rich”.

    We can thank CBS for helping to give us this guy. They weren’t clueless as to who he is/was:

  • dba…vagabond trader

    But they like him “personally.”

  • mcc

    Well, Newt’ll tell you what he wants to do. Thanks to commenter Darkstar58 at Legal Insurrection:

    Day 1:
    Executive Order 1. Eliminate the thirty-nine White House “Czar” positions created during the current administration. The president does not have the authority to appoint bureaucrats to power who are not accountable to the Congress

    Executive Order 2. “Mexico City Policy” of Respect for Life. Reauthorize President Ronald Reagan’s policy – also known as the “Mexico City Policy”— to stop tax payer dollars from being used to fund or promote abortions in foreign countries.

    Executive Order 3. Restore conscience clause protections for Healthcare Workers. No American working in a medical environment should be forced to perform any procedure that he or she finds morally or ethically objectionable based on religious teaching. This protection should include, but not be limited to abortion. Existing conscience clause protections need to be strengthened.

    Executive Order 4. Respect Each Sovereign Nation’s Choice of its Capital. Each sovereign nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own Capital. Accordingly, the U.S. State Department should be instructed to respect the choice of each sovereign nation and place the American embassy in their Capital. (Israel is the only country the United States discriminates against in this regard. The people of Israel have designated Jerusalem as their capital. Yet the United States retains its embassy in Tel Aviv.)

    Executive Order 5. End the Attorney General’s Assault on the States. Instruct the Attorney General to withdraw all immigration-related lawsuits against states immediately, including those pending in Arizona and South Carolina. The Obama Administration refuses to enforce federal immigration laws, and instead sues states who are merely trying to enforce the laws that the federal government neglects. The Gingrich Administration will secure the border by Jan. 1, 2014 by any means necessary.

    (Republicans may trick Obama into allowing this, but in case they don’t…)
    Executive Order 6. The Keystone Pipeline Unleash American Energy by Approving the Keystone XL Pipeline. Instruct the State Department to approve a Presidential Permit immediately for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that will send 700,000 barrels of oil a day from Great Plains and Southwestern states to Gulf Coast refineries lower staggering energy prices, and create up to 120,000 American jobs.

    add to all that, his “21st century Contract with America”:

    1. Repeal Obamacare and pass a replacement that saves lives and money by empowering patients and doctors, not bureaucrats and politicians.

    2. Return to robust job creation with a bold set of tax cuts and regulatory reforms that will free American entrepreneurs to invest and hire, as well as by reforming the Federal Reserve and creating a training requirement for extended federal unemployment benefits to encourage work and improve the quality of our workforce.

    3. Unleash America’s full energy production potential in oil, natural gas, coal, biofuels, wind, nuclear oil shale and more, creating jobs, stimulating a sustainable manufacturing boom, lowering gasoline and other energy prices, increasing government revenues, and bolstering national security.

    4. Save Medicare and Social Security by giving Americans more choices and tools to live longer, healthier lives with greater financial independence.

    5. Balance the federal budget by freeing job-creators to grow the economy, reforming entitlements, and implementing waste cutting and productivity improvement systems such as Lean Six Sigma to eliminate waste and fraud. Pass a balanced budget amendment to keep it balanced.

    6. Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.

    7. Revitalize our national security system to meet 21st century threats by restructuring and adequately funding our security agencies to function within a grand strategy for victory over those who seek to kill us or limit American power.

    8. Maximize the speed and impact of medical breakthroughs by removing unnecessary obstacles that block new treatments from reaching patients and emphasizing research spending towards urgent national priorities, like brain science with its impact on Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, mental health and other conditions knowledge of the brain will help solve.

    9. Restore the proper role of the judicial branch by using the clearly delineated powers available to the president and Congress to correct, limit, or replace judges who violate the Constitution.

    10. Enforce the Tenth Amendment by starting an orderly transfer of power and responsibility from the federal government back “to the states, respectively, or to the people,” as the Constitution requires. Over the next year, state and local officials and citizens will be asked to identify the areas which can be transferred back home.
