Most Americans Want Obama To Move On


Via Michelle Malkin, here are results from the latest Rasmussen poll:

Fifty-eight percent (58%) believe the Obama administration’s recent release of CIA memos about the harsh interrogation methods used on terrorism suspects endangers the national security of the United States.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of voters now believe the U.S. legal system worries too much about protecting individual rights when national security is at stake. But 21% say the legal system is too concerned about protecting national security. Thirty-three percent (33%) say the balance between the two is about right.

This reflects a significant shift over the past couple of years. In several surveys conducted during 2008, Americans were fairly evenly divided as to whether our legal system worried too much about individual rights or too much about protecting national security…

…Forty-six percent (46%) of voters disagree with Obama’s decision to close the prison camp for terrorism suspects at the Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba, while 36% agree with the president’s action. Support for the decision has fallen since the president announced it in January.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 28% believe the release of the memos helps America’s image abroad.

Perhaps it’s the whiff of a third world  show trial that has so many Americans turned off.


Hmmmmm….President Pantywaste?


And now..the UN gets in on the act. What the hell…why not?

Essay of the Day:

Telling the Truth
Let the hearings begin!
by Noemie Emery

Some Democrats, from the White House on down, are pushing the idea of a “truth commission,” à la South Africa, to deal with the “harsh measures” used by the Bush administration in interrogating al Qaeda detainees. Good. Let’s have lots of truthtelling. Please bring it on.

Let’s tell the truth about Bush’s conduct of the war on terror, which is that it’s been a success. His ultimate legacy hasn’t been written–Iraq is improved, but not out of danger–but the one thing that can be said without reservation is that the country was kept safe. He delivered on the main charge of his office in time of emergency, in a crisis without guidelines or precedent. Attacks took place in Spain, and in London, in Indonesia and India, but not on American soil, which was the obvious target of choice. Bush couldn’t say this before he left office, for obvious reasons, and after he left, attention switched to the new president. This little fact dropped down the memory hole, but with all this discussion, it will rise to the surface. Let the hearings begin!

  1. I just wish that Obama would move on..Like go backto his beloved country where his father was from, then he can live in peace with all of his muslim brothers….and take that idiot Reverand Wright with him, and Peposi, and Biden, and Gore, and Richardson, Reid, Frank, Dodd, and his tax cheat appointees. and oh yeah…the one and only Teddy, (lets go for a drive Kennedy) and his lunatic, (I stumble over my words) press release spinmeister..


  2. Obama has singlehandedly put the war on terror back by an entire generation. The Leader is a great recruiting officer for anti-American Muslim fanatics. After all.. what better recruiting tool is there than an adversary who is weak, timid, lacks intellect and is absolutely unwilling to fight you?
