WASHINGTON (AP) - Confronting misgivings, even in his own party, President Barack Obama mounted a stout defense of his blueprint to overhaul the economy Thursday, declaring the national crisis is "not as bad as we think" and his plans will speed recovery.
An analysis of recent polling indicates that Obama's perceived popularity is not as good as it may appear and it is rapidly declining. The socialist redistribution spending spree is not popular and is encountering increasing resistance, even from the congressional republicans. Nonetheless, Acorn, the unions and the MSM rally behind the program with a new focus on the positive.
The backlash against republicans will eventually fade and we will, hopefully, see some sanity return to Washington. By that time it will be too late - the democrat agenda led by OB1 will have led to more socialist programs and massive spending at a time when the world and the US can ill afford it!
