Liberal Pollster's Devastating Memo to Obama: Join the Tea Party

If President Obama needed any more indication of how much his public support has eroded, he need look no further than a recent memorandum of sorts published in the New York Times by former President Bill Clinton​’s pollster, Stanley Greenberg​.  Listen to Greenberg, whose progressive polling firm partners with Clinton strategist James Carville​, advise Obama and Democrats on what his latest round of polls and focus groups reveal are their only hope to survive politically, given the current reality:

    -“Voters in the developed world are turning away from Democrats, Socialists, liberals and progressives.”

   - “Voters feel ever more estranged from government—and they associate Democrats with government.”

    -“If they are to win trust, and votes, Democrats must show they are as determined as the Tea Party movement to change the rules of the game."

    -“This distrust of government and politicians is unfolding as a full-blown crisis of legitimacy [and] sidelines Democrats and liberalism."

    -Greenberg says that his public opinion research now reveals that voters believe, “Government rushes to help the irresponsible and does little for the responsible."

    -To win, Democrats must “advocate policies that would control the borders and address problems of undocumented workers,” and voters want to “see strong enforcement at the border and in the workplace, and the expulsion of troublesome undocumented immigrants."

    -“Finally, progressives have to be serious about reducing the country’s long-term deficits” because “the deficit matters to people and has real meaning and consequences.”

Salt water on Mars

Summertime on Mars is bringing water to the planet's surface, suggest NASA scientists who on Wednesday unveiled pictures of slender carvings in the sun-facing sides of crater walls on Mars that are believed to be etched by flowing briny water.

"Mars is salty so any water that flows in or on the surface would be salty as well," lead researcher Alfred McEwen, with the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, told Discovery News.

Government speak: spending an additional $6 trillion is a spending cut

Peter Kirsanow:

In just the last couple of years, our government has presumed to tell us what kind of light bulbs to use, how much water we may have in our toilets, where we may build our businesses, how strong our dishwashing detergent may be, what kind of medical treatments we may get, and that we must buy medical insurance, whether we want to or not.

The same government tells us that spending an additional $6 trillion is a spending cut. And if we object to such things, we are (according to the more enlightened within the government as well as their media acolytes) “terrorists.”

Dow’s losing streak unmatched since 1978

The last time the Dow went down nine straight sessions a peanut farmer was in the WH. Now we have a community organizer.
How's that working out?

Stocks plunged sharply Thursday, with the Dow down more than 500 points, in its worst one-day drop since December 2008.

All three major averages tumbled into negative territory for the year as investors were rattled over an intensifying global economic slowdown and ahead of the widely-followed monthly unemployment report.

The stock market is poised today to do something it has not done in over 33 years: Decline for nine straight sessions.

bin Laden family to build world's tallest building

How's that for irony?

The record for the world's tallest building is set to be broken yet again -- this time by the bin Laden family.

The Kingdom Tower will measure at least 3,280 feet high and will be located in Saudi Arabia, where it will outdo its Gulf neighbor Dubai, which inaugurated its own record-breaking skyscraper -- the 2,717-foot Burj Khalifa -- less than two years ago. The tower's final height remains a closely guarded secret, though it will be at least 568 feet taller than the $1.5 billion Burj Khalifa.

Obama's Racism Problem

OBAMA’S RACISM PROBLEM. “The trouble with this for the president’s supporters is that one cannot assert Obama is unable to govern effectively because of racism without conceding that he is unable to govern effectively.To put it mildly, that is not a strong argument in favor of re-electing him.”

As the DailyBrisk pointed out last week, the numbers are always revised upward. THis week's number was over 400,000, it will be revised upward next week.

Media catches up

Reuters: Obama in Deep Trouble

By Alister Bull and Jonathan Spicer, Reuters

The United States has a jobs problem and there's not a lot President Barack Obama or Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke can do about it.

In the face of rising risks of a recession that could imperil his re-election chances next year, Democrat Obama wants Congress to extend a payroll tax cut and emergency unemployment benefits that are due to expire in December.

But the Republican-controlled House of Representatives is emboldened by budget concessions it made Obama swallow to lift the country's debt limit this week and he has little political leverage to win significant fresh spending to aid growth.

"Obama does not have much presidential persuasion left. He is running out of capital," said James Thurber, of American University's Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies.

The Left wakes up

MUST READ: Left-Wing Politico Says Obama's Cooked

By Jim Vandehei & Mike Allen, Politico

The politics of the debt fight were a drag for President Barack Obama, yanking his popularity to new lows. Here’s an even bigger drag: Obama emerges from the months-long fracas weaker – and facing much deeper and more durable political obstacles – than his own advisers ever imagined.

The consensus has been that for all his problems, Obama is so skilled a politician – and the eventual GOP nominee so flawed or hapless — that he’d likely be re-elected.

Don’t buy into it.

This breezy certitude fails to reckon with how weak his fundamentals are a year out from the general election. Gallup pegs his approval rating at a discouraging 42 percent, with his standing among independents falling nine points in four weeks.

His economic stats are even worse. The nation has 2.5 million fewer jobs today than the day Obama took office, a fact you’re sure to hear the Republicans repeat. Consumer confidence is scraping levels not seen since March 2009.

Where’s the bright spot? Hard to see. Obama has few, if any, domestic achievements that enjoy broad public support. No one assumes employment, growth or housing prices to pick up much, if at all — something Obama is essentially powerless to change. And the political environment and electoral map are significantly tougher than in 2008, especially in true up-for-grabs states.

“The historical precedents of what happens to incumbent presidents in these economic circumstances are not positive or encouraging,” said Geoff Garin, a top Democratic pollster. “There has been a false sense of confidence among a lot of Democratic activists.”
