Hope and Change but not Trust

As a fiscal conservative the current direction of the Obama administration leaves little room for good news. Whether you label it as socialism (or in some cases communism) or just big government run amok, it is clear the concepts such as fiscal responsibility are not even in the room, let alone on the table.

The only hope is that public opinion is against this direction. Obama got votes for hope and for change and for not being Bush. But as the electorate starts to see the kind of change they voted for buyers remorse is setting in. Moe Lane tracks the trust numbers as polled by Rasmussen from month to month (hat tip: Hot Air). The slide of the Democratic trust numbers is dramatic and offers some hope.


Note the double digit lead for Republicans on the economy and on taxes and that this lead doubled since September. (The public trust on security issues is even more telling, but that is the subject for another post.)

On the Rasmussen page where Lane pulled his latest numbers, there is another set that is equally compelling.


Over 55% of likely voters think that tax increases hurt and tax decreases help. Support for the opposite view is in the teens. Rasmussen's analysis of the numbers can be found here. From this, one can hope that public support for a bloated health care bill that will cost billions and require tax increases will be devastatingly low.

Sadly public ignorance about what the government is actually doing and trying to do is still devastatingly high.

The numbers mean nothing to the Obamabots living in Barry's bubble in Washington, DC. 2010 is going to be a hard pill for them to swallow. First words out of their mouths will be "What happened?"

Yes, 2010 & 2012 are going to be real shockers to those living inside a rainbow fart unicorny dream world.
Can't say that it couldn't happen to a more deserving group either. AoSHQ is a daily driveby.

Rasmussen is now on Obama's enemies list along with all the folks who answered in favor of Republicans.

Money spent is money Barry never earned. We all know the song and dance. His encore will be an impeachment fiasco where He acuses "White" America of being filled with hate for the fallen phalacy of His affirmative victimhood.

Well, Barry sent Me off to the bar again to asuage His economy guilt.

I will be back on again later to assess His latest up to the minute blunder!
