ABC Poll shows Obama's approval rebounding

it's always been one of the lower polls and it shows him up to 49% from 42% in October.

I agree with the analysis and think we can thank congress for this fortunate turn. Everyone hates them and rightly so.

2. All this means is the GOP

will double down on its efforts to destroy Obama. They don't care if they destroy the U.S. and hurt millions in the process.

3. They won't double down

to continue the card playing analogy the fucking pubes have been all in since the day the black guy beat the shit out of an old war hero and ditzy wassilabily wannabe.

The sole goal of the Republican party has been to make Obama a one term President but they didn't count on their own Congressional assholes being so truly unlikable and political suicidal that it might backfire.

12. All in was the phrase that came to mind for me as well

They were all in from day one.

Granted they are working hard to create, scam, or creatively acquire other sources of funding to up the ante.

And granted also they are working hard to find ways to smuggle more aces to the game, as well as to hide the fact that their hand of 16 aces(thinking voting machines here) might not be fully legit.


But they cannot, to switch metaphors, pull out all the stops, seeing as they did that years ago.

7. That is because the DU, being a support site of the Democratic Party, attracts more GOP trolls.

Then they spread the "Obama defenders" meme here to describe what are Obama supporters. The must be climbing trees they are so upset the unrec function is gone.

10. Poll: Gingrich, Romney in dead heat nationally (same poll)

story: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/poll-gingrich-romney-in-dead-heat-nationally/2011/12/19/gIQAAzat5O_singlePage.html

full results: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/polls/postabcpoll_121811.html

excerpt: "Gingrich and Romney are each favored by 30 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. Running behind them is Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.), whose libertarian philosophy has attracted a strong following. He stands at 15 percent, about double his tally in an early November poll. All other active candidates are in the single digits."

Looks like banging the "poor people are lazy" drum really worked for the Grinch.
