? ? ?

No I didn't. Is this somehow political? My little girl is 3 and no starting to play with dolls and stuff. I googled and came up with some links. I like the first choice best, it's called fairy princess.

Folks like civetcat seem to forget that this country started it's uprising, that eventually led to our independence, over taxation without representation, something that is happening now. The Boston Tea Party was one of those events. The vast majority of Americans did not support the bailouts using tax dollars, tax increases and Budget deficits in the multi trillion dollar ranges but we got them anyway.
There are still a couple hundred million Americans out there that still value their country and the founding values that makes the US the greatest nation ever on the earth and we won't just let it go away at the whim of loons.
Many of those who voted for Obama are feeling lied to as more and more of his campaign promises are being broken and exposed.
2012 will be alot different than 2008.

That's hilarious! I'd no idea!

I love the front banner, "silent majority" lol some disgruntled losers and thier crazy aunt come down from the attic.

My daughter does have imaginary playmates when her big brother is playing computer games.

From the Faux link,

precipitous decline in the stock market

hmm. same point as when Obama took over 3 months ago last Thursday, they must be talking about Bushy.

Quote:
The Tea Party movement, say national supporters, would be just as happy to have 10 people outside a U.S. Post Office

well at least no one is setting themselves up to be disapointed.

I think it might be healthy to look at other "REAL" news sources once in a while. I mean next thing you know you might think most people don't support his budget, and we know they do, or you might think there are "millions" who think just like your "news caster" because he says its so, when we know the moderate republicans have left leaving only a hard core of the republican party of two people if you count that aunt.

Last week there was a special election in NYs 20th where Republican registrations outnumbered Democrats by some 70,000 voters, as of now it 's a dead heat, they're still counting votes. How can the Republicans win elections when they can't even win in districts where they have a 2 to 1 advantage? I'd say y'all oughta think about getting with the program.

I didn't post this for you civetcat. We all know you're hopeless and choose to live with your head in the sand. Who has those imaginary playmates? Sounds like you!

I don't know of a single person (personally) that supports the budget, Dem or Repub. What, another one of your fantasies??? Haven't you heard? You can't spend yourself out of debt!!!

Maybe you need to broaden your circle of friends.

Interesting news about Colorado today, sec of state just released new registrations, we've flipped from being down 250,000 in the year 2000 to being up 1,000 in 09. Some of those are ones I signed up.

You also can't massive tax break yourself out of debt, but you can spend yourself out of a recession. Most economists have know the Great Depression was the afermation of Keynes. Although some are lately trying to re write history.

As usual this posters links that they suppy to try and make a point completely rebut their contentions.
The polls show a definite decline in "positive" and an equal increase in "negatives" feelings about the budget.
This decline in "positives" are in line with the time line, with time more are getting informed about what this budget means and whats in it and hence the decline in "positives" and increase in "negatives" from Feb to Mar.
It also shows nothing new in the way of Partisan support either. "Positives" are vastly Democrat and Liberals with "Negative" being Republican and Conservative.

additionally this disclaimer was at the bottom of the poll page,
"Polls conducted entirely in one day, such as this one, are subject to additional error or bias not found in polls conducted over several days."

"In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls."

It is a good thing that your daughter has imaginary playmates. Now she'll be well prepared to live with imaginary money when she grows up and she will have to start paying for this mess that her Daddy didn't have the sense to help stop. It is one thing to be silly with yourself but to saddle your children with silliness is inexcusable.

The gallup poll shows a whopping 39% positive "impression" of the Obama budget. Note that does not mean they support it, its simply an impression! A full 1/3 of the population doesn't even know what's in the budget!

Note the positive rating is dropping!

There are grass roots protests and organizations springing up around the country. Civetcat, open up your eyes and get off the kool-aid! As time goes by, more and more people are going to realize how bad Obama and the dems are for this country.

I agree with Jtapia. Look at what you're leaving for your daughter and future generations.

Repeat after me.... Wiki is not a reliable source. Are you aware that anybody at any time can edit anything and everything on Wiki? Click on "edit this page" and whalla - anything I post is now the gospel truth!

Somehow I forgot to the link to all the other polls, I'll do so at the end.

Gallup is considered very staid and solid if you go to the gallup web site they have many polls throughout the week on many topics, very interesting. They also list their methodology so you can better understand the numbers.

This paticular Gallup poll had this to say,

Bottom Line

New Gallup Poll results on President Obama's proposed 10-year budget plan have hardly changed from those expressed when it was first unveiled a month ago. Americans overall remain more positive than negative about the plan, and these views remain highly partisan. Despite significant news coverage of the debate in Washington over the plan, Americans are no more likely now than they were a month ago to be closely following news on this issue.

I didn't read much bad news in that, especially when I look at the numbers.

I read many different polls from many sources a quick reference to some #s from all of them broadly on this topic can be seen here.

http://www.pollingreport.com/budget.htm

Despite all the noise from the wingisphere Obama's 2010 budget is what 3.8T compared to Bush's 3.6T? Including the cost of the wars in Bush's instead of hiding it brings them to near parity.

I'm much less concerned for my children this year than last inspite of a declining economy. It was obvious this was coming just a question of how long it's going to take to clean up, we're 4 years ahead of where we might of been. Then again if things had gone differently in 04 or 2000 we might not be in near a fix as we are presently.

I can't believe you guys fell for the "What? I don't know what you're talking about" act. He's been pulling that juvenile routine repeatedly for months.

How many of those new registrations you signed up are actual living human beings, Civet? Do they know?

The only thing we've accelerated by four years is growth of the national debt and attacks on the Constitution. Show me one credit counselor that advises clients on the verge of bankruptcy to go out and borrow huge amounts of money. We're not paying down principle -- we're just paying hundreds of billions per year on interest. So all of Obama's borrowing will just increase the cost of a must-pay bill we throw money at every year for nothing in return. All of that money has to come from tax revenue -- so his fiscal policies are simply increasing the drag on the economy in the long run. And who's buying that debt and collecting that interest?
