Fox News poll: 69% now expect Obama to break promise about not raising taxes

posted at 5:35 pm on August 13, 2009 by Allahpundit

There’s so much dismal news for The One in these crosstabs, I honestly wasn’t sure to lead with. The GOP erasing a 13-point Democratic lead on the generic ballot in April to pull dead even now? 57 percent declaring the White House snitch line inappropriate? A 52/29 split on the question of whether town hall outrage is authentic or artificial? Or a 13-point surge in the number of people since March who say they’d like to see less of The One on TV? (Overall split is 25/49, among independents it’s 22/50.)

I decided to stick with the big stuff, the true mother of all Obama lies. The one nearly everyone now recognizes as such:

Note: Even a near-majority of Democrats no longer buys the White House nonsense about not raising taxes on the middle class. And that’s not the only “good” economic news. Note the Democratic split on this question, too:

And finally the topic of the hour, where The One continues to circle the drain. Fox finds a split of 34/49 against the plans now circulating, a two-point shift towards opposition since last month. Among indies, it’s now 27/50. Plus:

Chuck Grassley is now starting to whisper that, thanks to the town halls, Congress might actually have to start over on ObamaCare, although I suspect that’s less a serious threat than a ploy for extra leverage. Exit question: Which conservative pollster is now predicting a 20 to 50 seat pickup in the House and potentially a six-seat pickup in the Senate for the GOP next year? Fox News? Rasmussen? Try lefty darling Nate Silver. Follow the link to find out where he was when he broke the news.

Pretty soon Obama is going to run out of folks to attack.

Yeah, he’s coming unhinged.

Next townhall, some pretty little girl is gonna ask him a softball question, he’s gonna lose his wiring and shout,

“Shut up, you ignorant white slut!”

I’m going to a Tea Party outside Pelosi’s SF office tomorrow.

Does anyone happen to have a Nazi SS uniform I can borrow?

42 chest, 33 waist.

One of those snazzy red armbands would be nice, too.

Ssshhhhh!

Allahpundit has a…thing…about Beck.

My wife and I met Beck in 2004. When he was just starting out in Philadelphia, he used to have July 4th picnic by the museum. About 20 people showed up. You’d never meet a nicer, more humble guy. What an American success story. From down-and-out alcholic to media superstar…against the wind.

Jiminy Cricket: Remember what I said about temptations?

Jiminy Cricket: That’s him.[points to Honest John]

Pinocchio: Oh, no, Jiminy. That’s President Honest John Obama!

And then, Pinocchio continued having fun at Pleasure Island and was turned into an Donkey. And it wasn’t until he proved himself brave, truthful, and unselfish that he died and was returned to life, but this time not as a puppet, but as a real boy.

So, please remember to listen to Jiminy Cricket, and always let your conscience be your guide.

That’s why I moved to Marin. Hiking, mountain-biking, kiteboarding. I hate the gym, but Marin is one huge gym with gorgeous mountain and ocean views.

DNC: Palin and others concerned about end-of-life provisions are ‘deathers’

DNC: Palin and others concerned about end-of-life provisions are ‘deathers’ —————— The Democratic National Committee has just sent out a couple of press releases using the word “deathers’ to refer to Sarah Palin and others concerned about end-of-life.

Now we have “truthers,” “birthers,” and “deathers”.

The truthers are insane. The birthers are semi-legitimate in their inquiries though a little paranoid. Deathers are completely legitimate because the bill does have a death panel, several death panels. They even admitted that they removed one death panel.

andy85719 on August 13, 2009 at 7:40 PM

Looks like Obot had Ben Stein fired from New Junk Times. Probably for the better though.

andy85719 on August 13, 2009 at 7:42 PM

OT, but all of Obama doesn’t stand by anyone or anything, unless it works for him, personally. Some more sad people who are just now learning the truth:

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2009/08/the-attack-at-camp-ashraf.html

Money Quote:

On Thursday evening, roughly three dozen protesters gathered across the street from the White House, most of them Iranian Americans, many with relatives from the camp. They were frustrated with Obama administration inaction.

“Obama is doing zero, quite frankly,” said Al Arza, one of the protester, originally from Ahwaz, Iran.

Arza, who works in stocks and investments and now resides in Los Angeles, Calif., says he’s disappointed because he voted for the president.

“He doesn’t stand for basic human values,” Arza said. “He doesn’t say killing is wrong, abductions are wrong. Quite frankly, I want my vote back.”

AUINSC on August 13, 2009 at 7:43 PM

Yea 69% of tone deaf republicans. How many times will this man need to say he wont raise taxes on people making under $250K?
Conservatives need to stop getting their panties in a bunch

Afrolib on August 13, 2009 at 5:43 PM

Hi. And welcome!

I don’t get what your point is supposed to be. Are you glad people are waking up to the bullshetter in chief…or are you claiming its the Repubs that make up the 69%..or do you think the 69% ids the product of organized deceit..or what? Can restate it?

Itchee Dryback on August 13, 2009 at 7:44 PM

And the other 31% knew he was going to raise taxes all along.

andy85719 on August 13, 2009 at 7:42 PM

Yeah, screw Ben Stein.

I used to like him. A lot.

And then he came out and whined about how “rich” people like me aren’t paying enough taxes.

Typical guilt-ridden Jew.

Difference between Stein and I is that after taxes, he still has millions each year; and my family has maybe $300,000.

Screw him.

guntotinglibertarian on August 13, 2009 at 7:47 PM

“He doesn’t stand for basic human values,” Arza said. “He doesn’t say killing is wrong, abductions are wrong. Quite frankly, I want my vote back.”

Too late, you freaking ignorant tool. Man up and go to Iran and take your country back. Don’t expect the American taxpayer and the American soldier to do your job.

Despicable p***y.

He doesn’t stand for basic human values,” Arza said. “He doesn’t say killing is wrong, abductions are wrong. Quite frankly, I want my vote back

Wow, who could have seen that coming??? An Illinois state senator who voted agreement that innocent babies born alive from botched abortions should be left to die. What a shocker. Agree with guntoter-he’s an idiot! Ah, the myth of the erudite Liberal meets reality, again.

indypat on August 13, 2009 at 7:58 PM

And that number just keeps going higher and higher…

Khun Joe on August 13, 2009 at 8:03 PM

While it wasn’t the income tax, let’s not forget The Precedent signed on to boosting the “sin tax” on tobacco products for SCHIP: “Every time a smoker lights up, a child gets a vaccination!”

An original authentic SS uniform will cost you a F+cking Fortune. There are many excellent fakes, with people using 1940 thread, with old cloth expertly dyed and cut.

Janos, ya got that right…basic tunic and trou…original…average condition…cost ya better than a grand.

Repros…about $100-125 for the tunic, a little less for trou.

GTL…there are a number of WWII reenactment groups in NoCa. And a few retailers.

Try this one…right there in Petaluma.

coldwarrior on August 13, 2009 at 8:29 PM

A little to late to this so if someone else said it already…sorry.

4% of Republicans polled thing their taxed will go DOWN?!?! Who are these people? And good lord why are they allowed to vote?

angryed on August 13, 2009 at 9:19 PM

The libs are going to have to raise taxes in order to pay for everything, printing money is only going to work for so long.

ludog29 on August 13, 2009 at 9:25 PM

And in other polling news, about 52% expect Hussein to assume the role of President for Life, quelling any and all dissent, by whatever means necessay or by what comes readily to hand.

Friendly21 on August 13, 2009 at 9:38 PM

It’s cute how 15% of Democrats “don’t know” whether their taxes will go up or down.

I don’t want the GOP to have the seats. I want a third party which is based on state’s rights, abolish the fed and the fed income tax, severe term limits, and ending corruption to have those seats.

PattyJ on August 13, 2009 at 10:06 PM

I really miss W being in the white house b/c at least then we had a man who believed in the people and the will of the United States. For all his faults W was a proud American who believed in the American people even in times when they didn’t always believe in him. I love ya W.

lavell12 on August 13, 2009 at 10:09 PM

I still can’t believe how many people were hypnotized by this guy and believed his line about taxes. Doesn’t anybody remember what a snake oil salesman is?

Alfresco on August 13, 2009 at 10:22 PM

Obama reminds me of another psychopath: O.J.with these telling traits; Glib,Superficial Charm,Grandiose sense of self worth,Pathological liar,Cunning and Manipulative,Lacks remorse/guilt,Emotionally shallow,Callous/ lacks empathy,Fails to accept responsibility for his own actions.Classic narcissist, a form of mental illness. Behind the grinning genial demeanor is a racist rage that would do anything to white folks to even the score for perceived past wrongs.He is O.J and Rev Wright all rolled into one dangerous dude. Believe Nothing he says; watch what he Does!!

Marco on August 13, 2009 at 10:25 PM

Pretty soon Obama is going to run out of folks to attack.

The guy who threw his own sick grandmother under the bus during a Presidential campaign?

Wishful thinking.

If it saved his Presidency, this man is capable of attacking anyone. If sick granny who raised him isn’t safe, healthy wife or daughters can’t be too far off limits for him.

If you aren’t related to him, the odds go up astronimically if:

1. He know’s you personally.
2. Throwing you under the bus helps him.

Hog Wild on August 13, 2009 at 10:25 PM

Um..last time I checked Bush tax cuts are due to expire next year. Remember Bush’s tax cuts were across the board. So by default, no action by Obama and Dems will mean automatic tax hikes for everyone. Judging by this poll 69% of American’s are starting to understand!

Rndguy on August 13, 2009 at 11:19 PM

I figure it’s one of the formerly Ban Hammered doorknobs that sat for weeks or months waiting for the next open registration to spring the master plan!!

Use that name an try to get some one to say something racist or some such crap….which has to work because everyone knows that conservative white people have cornered the market on racism, greed, being mean, et. al.

BigWyo on August 13, 2009 at 6:53 PM

Yes, afrolib is afrolame. BTW, it sounds from your name as though you are from Wyoming. I’ve always wanted to see it.

tigerlily on August 13, 2009 at 11:25 PM

What will be fascinating will be to see how they get around this and do what they want anyway. These guys don’t seem like they’re all that concerned about polling numbers, votes, and other Democratic junk like that.

Dr. ZhivBlago on August 14, 2009 at 12:10 AM

69 hmmmmm?

roux on August 14, 2009 at 10:03 AM

That means 21% are ignorant, not listening, or just stupid.

Vashta.Nerada on August 14, 2009 at 10:29 AM

The truth is Obama has already raised taxes on 25% of U.S. citizens. Remember SCHIP? And now we have the largest tax increase in the history of the U.S. pending in the senate. Cap and trade will cost the American citizens TRILLIONS of dollars in the next generation. And to what end? And now by goodness that we are poor we want the federal government to provide health care?

What are these people in the house and the senate trying to fix? It was a health care fix. Now its a insurance fix.

47 million uninsured? Any one with any sense knows that that number is just a political lie!

Let’s be honest. No where that I know of takes better care of the populace health care wise than the U.S..

State run health care is not free as Michael Moore would have us to believe.

As far as I know every attempt at state run helth care has failed or failing.

Oregon,
Tennessee,
Mass.,
Maine,
Canada,
England,
Cuba,
All the communists countries in the world,
Why? Health care is not free some one must pay.

TomLawler on August 14, 2009 at 1:09 PM

Charlie Cook

“2012 is looking pretty good for President Obama
. Why? Because the Republicans might be “stupid enough to nominate, say, Sarah Palin,” said Silver.

“might be “stupid enough to nominate, say, Sarah Palin,””

Thus displaying the conceded ignorance that has this president with a 60% supper Majority in the Senate and 59% majority in the House, can’t get a bill passed!

Hummm?

If true this does not bode well for the dems.
After 8 years of “tax cuts for the rich ”, how do the dems explain that tax cuts for the RICH ending means YOUR “NOT RICH” taxes will go up?
