"the Obama administration is sailing against the tide of public opinion"

Gallup's new poll is far from surprising:

Americans' initial reactions to the U.S. Justice Department lawsuit against Arizona's new illegal immigration law are more negative than positive, by a 50% to 33% margin.


A Republican-controlled Arizona House and Senate passed the law, a Republican governor signed it, and both of the state's Republican U.S. senators (John McCain and Jon Kyl) support it. Official opposition has been centered primarily among Democrats (including President Obama and current Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, who as governor of Arizona vetoed similar bills passed by the state legislature), and a Democratic administration filed the lawsuit against the Arizona law.

The general public's reaction to the lawsuit reflects this partisan divergence. Almost 8 out of 10 Republicans are opposed, while 56% of Democrats are in favor. Independents tilt toward opposition.


The fact that Americans are more likely to oppose than favor the federal government's lawsuit against Arizona's controversial immigration law is in line with previous polling showing that Americans generally favor the Arizona bill. This means the Obama administration is sailing against the tide of public opinion in its efforts to block the law, although members of Obama's own party certainly support the administration.

Bottom line is that Obama and the Democrats are once again going against the will of the American people.

I can see November from my backyard.

Uh, which "lies told by racists" would those be??

The "lie" about how he stated his economic policies were going to rescue the economy?
The "lie" about how he stated the Arizona law was racist, without ever having read it...and then didn't sue based on that when he did sue?

Lots of lies...told by Obama. And since he IS a racist, I guess you're half right.

Barrys kind of days are over. He and Holder are so arrogant and racist they think they can thwart the will of the people. Your ass is grass Barry, yours too Eric. There will be no hail mary pass to save you from November.

Are up speaking of the New Black "kill cracker babies" Panthers?

THere are lots of lies told by racists about Obama. And the vast vast vast majority of those lies are told to put Obama in a better light by racists on the left. Folks like Rev Lee Ward Wright.

The (P)resident and his regime have a race based agenda and are hell bent on implementing it before they are striped of power and thrown out of office.

Naturally. There's that Obamabot 33%.

lee weird.... perpetuates a myth via the following quote he provides. (How not so shocking)

Bush ran up the deficit and so-called "conservatives" stood by and applauded. Now they lie and claim the deficit is all Obama's fault.

1. and so did the Dems who you so eaisliy ignore were in charge of the purse strings the last 2 years of the Bush admin.

2. Psst might I suggest you check the the U.S. Treasury website.

There you will find the so called Clinton "surplus" was nothing but a myth.

The deficit was almost eliminated in FY2000 (ending in September 2000 with a deficit of "only" $17.9 billion), but it never reached zero - let alone a positive surplus number.

And Clinton's last budget proposal for FY2001, which ended in September 2001, generated a $133.29 billion deficit.

The growing deficits started in the year of the last Clinton budget, not in the first year of the Bush administration.

Frankly I think the folks in Arizona should send a big thank you note to Obrother for removing that festuring boil Napolitano from their state.
