Obama Will Lose

It just keeps getting better;

A new poll shows that more Americans think the debt-reduction compromise passed by the Senate and signed into law by President Obama on Tuesday will make the economy worse, not better.

The USA Today/Gallup Poll, which was taken shortly after Obama signed the debt-limit agreement Tuesday, shows that 41 percent of Americans think the deal will make the economy worse, while 17 percent believe it will make the economy better. About a third of respondents believed the deal would have no effect.

Asked whether they approve of the overall deal, which would raise the debt ceiling through the end of 2011 and achieve more than $2 trillion in deficit savings over the next decade, only 39 percent of respondents said they backed the agreement; 46 percent disapproved.

Americans vote for these tea bagging jackasses and they get exactly what they voted for.. fucked.

10 year bonds are at something like 2.5%. The government could borrow massive amounts of money, start building lots of new stuff.. start investing in new technologies.. he'll.. they could get a bunch of cash and air drop it over American cities. That would be a hell of a lot better than what Obama and the Republicans insist must happen.

Meanwhile.. jackass talking heads, like Andrew Sullivan, who are already ridiculously over paid, whine about how we all have to take it up the ass in order to "share the sacrifice". Fuckers aren't sacrificing a god damn thing. It's the middle class and poor that are being fucked.. and until the middle class and poor start giving a shit, nothing is going to change.

Obama is the worst.. ever.. and it's not going to change. He had so many opportunities to do the right thing, to turn this thing around, and all he did was stick his finger up in the air to find out which direction the political winds were blowing. That's how we get massive cuts in federal spending.

And now those massive cuts aren't going to be polling so well, so look for Obama to pretend like he wants to do something about jobs. He'll complain that he can't do anything about the tea baggers.. and so will coast into the next election with a really shitty economy (which the Republicans wanted in the first place) and then lose.

It's going to be the most awesome thing ever. I.. can't.. wait.
