It's not Grandma that got pushed off the cliff: it's President Obama's approval ratings

Remember when the Democrat Party used a cynical, disgusting ploy to demagogue Paul Ryan's plan to save Medicare? Yeah, I know: it was like five days ago. And they depicted a Ryan-lookalike pushing Grandma off a cliff. Clever, eh?

Turns out the American people are a lot smarter than the Democrats thought.

They've caught on to the massive, budget-busting failures of the 111th Congress and President Obama.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19...

...Twenty-seven percent (27%) of Likely U.S. Voters now say the country is heading in the right direction... That's down one point from last week. In April, prior to the killing of Osama bin Laden, the number who felt the country was heading in the right direction fell into the low 20s, the lowest findings of the Obama presidency, but the figure climbed back up to 29% in early to mid-May. The number who believe the country is on the right course has ranged from a low of 21% to a high of 35% since January 2009.

...Leading up to President Obama's inauguration, the number of voters who felt the country was heading in the right direction remained below 20%. The week of his inauguration in January 2009, voter confidence rose to 27% and climbed into the low to mid-30s until mid-May of that year. Since then, belief that the country is heading in the right direction has trended lower.

How about another 'Stimulus' program, Mr. President?

Oh, that's right. You've already bankrupted the United States. Never mind.


Hat tip: The Lid.

So about a quarter of Americans are totally insane and delusional. How can anyone who doesn't hate America still support that failure?

Some very good questions for the Donks:

Hey Democrats! Where is YOUR plan to save Medicare?
(Besides insanely trying to “Spread the wealth around”)

Hey Democrats! Where is YOUR plan to save Social Security?
(Besides insanely trying to “Spread the wealth around”)

Hey Democrats! Where is YOUR Budget?
(Besides insanely trying to “Spread the wealth around”)

Hey Democrats! Where is YOUR plan to keep the country from running into a Fiscal brick wall?
(Besides insanely trying to “Spread the wealth around”)
