ObamaCare Far Less Popular Year After Passage

obamacare-nurse-corpsA year ago, Democrats who were in control of both houses of Congress, in addition to the White House, openly disregarded the will of the people and rammed ObamaCare down our throats.  At the time, the Democrats claimed that their bill would become more popular once Americans found out what was in it.  A process that, as Democrats explained, required passing it.  They were wrong on both counts; they could have let us know what was in it before passing it and it is far less popular now than it was a year ago when it passed.

Union Boss Threatens Obama and Democrats To Do More For Unions Or Get No Union Support For 2012 Election

Richard-Trumka-AFL-CIO-Intelligent-US-PoliticsUnion boss Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, already feels like he bought this President, along with most of the Democrats in the House and Senate. He is also keenly aware that Barack Obama and the Democratic Party leadership expect him and his union brethren to spend mightily to get Obama re-elected. Most estimates, in fact, expect unions to spend upwards of $500 million on Obama's re-election campaign.

Democratic Candidates Find Endorsement From Obama Is The Kiss Of Death

Obama endorsements sunk two more Democratic candidates this month as his political capital continues to wane along with his popularity in the face of widespread voter rebellion.

Senator Benedict Arlen Specter became the fourth Democrat in seven months to lose a high-profile election despite active involvement in the campaign by Obama. The Associated Press, in their infinite wisdom, said that this is "raising doubts about Obama's ability to help fellow Democrats in this November's elections." You think?

The first three all fell to Republicans. Specter's loss Tuesday to Representative Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania's Democratic senatorial primary proves, unequivocally, that Obama's influence and popularity - even within his own party - is sinking fast. And he's taking Democratic candidates down with him.

Obama Abandons 65 Years Of US Policy Exposes US To Attack

Barack Obama reversed 65 years of US policy of using the US nuclear arsenal as a deterrent. The move is akin to whistling past a graveyard, hoping that nothing bad will happen. It is also the exact opposite of the Peace Through Strength policy employed so effectively by Ronald Reagan.

479px-Official_Portrait_of_President_Reagan_1981Barack Obama's decision to reverse 65 years of US nuclear weapons policy and drop most of the nation's deterrence capacity has alarmed critics who say they fear that the United States will now be more vulnerable to attack from would-be nuclear nations. 

By changing the policy, the Obama administration hopes the United States can focus on stopping the spread of atomic weapons to terror groups such as Al Qaeda as well as halt North Korea's nuclear buildup and Iran's nuclear ambitions, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday in announcing the new Nuclear Posture Review.
