He Came Amongst Us
This quote from Chris Matthews discussing his interview with the president really says it all: “He came to us today. He came amongst us.” Chris “tingles up his leg” Matthews is awe-inspired by the fact that the Anointed One came down from his Heavenly perch and spoke to his most ardent supporters at MSNBC.
Give me a break. This idolization of Obama is unhealthy. He is our president, elected to protect our Constitution, he isn't a God. So many in the liberal media want to treat him as such. Matthews has already declared Obama to be “perfect,” which is why it is impossible for people like him to comprehend how Obama failed so miserably when it comes to ObamaCare.
Gallup polling out today finds that 52% of Americans support scaling back or repealing ObamaCare. The numbers continue to slide out of Obama's favor. I've told you about his huge loss of support among Millenials. A majority disapprove of the president and would go as far as to remove him from office. A majority also disapprove of ObamaCare. A recent United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection poll finds the following among Millenials: “18 percent of respondents in this age group said it was 'very likely' ObamaCare would be repealed by Congress next year, while 33 percent said it was 'somewhat likely' the law would be done away with.” It's not that they want ObamaCare to be repealed but they expect it to be repealed.
But this is where we are, and judging by the stories I'm about to share here, Democrats are still in a heap of trouble, despite their best efforts to appear calm, positive and united.
Mistletoe Sale Gets 11-year-old Girl Booted From Portland Market
This past weekend, Madison Root, an 11-year-old from Portland was removed from a Portland market for selling mistletoe. Ashton Root, Madison's father, joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss the incident. "She had an idea to make some money to help pay for her braces,’’ said her father. A private security guard for the market told Madison and her dad that they were violating city code (specifically Chapter 20.12.020, “Soliciting For or Conducting Business” in a public park). Under the rule, it's illegal to “sell or offer to sell any article or service” without a permit. "There were people right next to me with signs that said, 'Got pot?' said Madison who was on the phone with her father. "They're raising money for pot!" "We understand the rule,' Ashton said. "But here she was selling mistletoe and all around her were people playing music for money, or asking for money for pot, or just spare change. We’re allowing people to beg, but not to sell; it seems like there should be some sort of exception." For more on this story please click here.
