Obama will have 100% Approval Ratings for his whole term.

Those who state they disapprove will be beaten until they approve...

bio mom

There is something foul and putrid about the lefty media and their fellow travelers that even when their favored son wins, they must still find a way to spit on this President. May all who feel this urge rot in hell. Yet Bush always turns the other cheek.

hrtshpdbox

"Yet Bush always turns the other cheek."

He's a classy guy, is why. Unlike an awful lot of the American public.

MayBee

I want people to sing from the rooftops about what a great job Bush is doing with this transition.
He didn't like what happened to him, and rather than be petty and vindictive, he is making this an easy transition for the man who ran on trashing him.

clarice

He's a lovely man who tried very hard to protect us and to restore dignity to the office of the presidency.

He didn't like what happened to him, and rather than be petty and vindictive, he is making this an easy transition for the man who ran on trashing him.

And doing a great job at transition time is in the best interest of the country.

matt

unfortunately, Bush is one of the worst communicators we've seen in the office. If he had even a moderately competent staff, he would be much higher, but instead he got Scott McClellan.

bunky

Clarice: did protect us. :)

Extraneus

Obama doesn't deserve an easy transition, and I for one hope we never have another turn-the-other-cheek Republican President again, ever. He allowed the left to trash him repeatedly, and is completely responsible for the end result, including the Obama Presidency.

The more Bush helps with the transition, the sooner and more effectively Obama can screw us. I wouldn't mind if we were all just loyal Americans with different points of view, but we're not.

Extraneus

And whose numbers are they working on now?

Guess.

centralcal

Class act - now that is something Jimmah Carter and Bill Clinton now nothing about.

Bush will be far better off historically than either of those two.

centralcal

now = know

LindaK

Unfortunately, in this election, the American people got sweettalked into trying something new and didn't put much value on how the Bush administration protected us all these years. Bush struggled hard against the negative forces of the Democrats and won. Because Bush was patriotic and principled, the Dems could afford to undermine our national security and be generally unprinipled in their attacks.

clarice

cc, about history, you may be right, but generally speaking betting on the dark side has a better track record, I'm afraid. (Yes. I am getting very cynical. I'm thinking if the country's dumb enough to elect this cipher I just ought to take advantage of the opportunities provided.)

torquewrench


And whose numbers are they working on now?

Guess.

And my local fishwrap, the San Francisco Chronicle, gleefully headlined that AP wire story as "Palin 'frantically' sorts wardrobe".

The "frantically" adjective comes from her father, who also defended her stoutly, but of course that part of it gets buried deep in the body of the article, not the headline.

You would think that by now, the Palin family would have figured it out, that the national press corpse are NOT THEIR FRIENDS, and that objectivity and professionalism of coverage are off the table (and have been from the beginning), that anything the family says will be distorted or taken out of context, and that perhaps the smartest possible thing to do is to just say to them, "I'm sorry, but I'm too busy to comment. Thank you so much for calling."

George S

The one question I would ask these disapprovers is: why? Put it in words. But I doubt we'll ever get a story like that from CNN, or whoever, because what we'd get would be either the repetition of the media-fabricated distortions about the man or a blank stare. I'll bet that conservatives will have far more articulable reasons for disapproving his job than your typical leftist/moderate.

But Obama is not going to have that problem for one simple reason: the media will never dissemble any negative information whatsoever. Those who voice disapproval in these upcoming polls will be ignored with a vengeance. Just ask Bill (Free as a Bird) Ayers.

Jor

Uh it wasn't the lefty media that threw him under the bus -- it was John McCain. He practically avoided bush at ALL costs. It would be interesting to get a larger sample on approval ratings where you can break it down by region. Although it wasn't hard to find McCain supporters in Silicon valley, I can't remeber the last time someone spoke positively about Bush in person to me. It wouldn't suprirse me if a national 24% approval rating is a 40% approval rating in t he south, and 5-10% in the rest of the country.

MikeS

The Dems despicable 8 year campaign to demonize George Bush has been successful. That it was an organized campaign to demonize the President is indisputable in my mind. I think the commenters who blame that campaign's success on a lack of defense by Bush and his administration are right. If there was any kind of refutation or counterpoints offered in defense of the President, or even in defense of Republicans in general, I wasn't aware of it.

Going forward, I would like to hear more people talk about how this Alinsky tactic was employed during the Bush administration. In fact I think every Republican ought to mention it each time he speaks in public.

PeterUK

"Uh it wasn't the lefty media that threw him under the bus"

Oh look! They're picking up The One's speech mannerisms already.

SR

"Yet Bush always turns the other cheek."

Is it that, or is it that he really honestly doesn't care about public opinion polls? On the one hand I've admired him for holding steady on Iraq and other national security matters in the face of vitriolic criticism, on the other I've wished he'd have worked a little harder to explain and defend his foreign policy agenda to the persuadables in the middle.

I need to remember to sent him a thank-you letter before he leaves office in any case, he has never deserved the terrible treatment he's gotten in the media.

The Cruise Report! (divided into 2 Captcha evading segments):

We're sure y'all will be pleased to know that the JOM crew have arrived safely at our first port of call. Our intrepid Brit Capt'n battoned ye hatches, ramped up the knottage, and blew us by Cuba and Paloma in the dead of night -- while we all slept soundly in our very comfortable beds.

We're sorry that Clarice missed out on the mud wrestling! It's a far more popular sport in conservative circles than any of us imagined (along with arm wrestling for face time with our celebrity pundits, of course). Fortunately, we had a full complement of JOMmers for both Tag Team and Individual competitions. The tatoo parlor turns out to be a popular social hotspot, and getting the required team call sign emblazoned our tender flesh was not nearly as painful as I'd have thought. In deference to the local cult, I think you'll agree that Caro suggested a most tactful alternative to TM RULES! I'd have posted a photo of the winners' circle, but it's NSFW and you wouldn't recognize us anyway. (The ear muffs were a big hit, Sue!) Can you guess who won the individual competition for Mark Steyn?

Jane is now a virtual member of Fred Thompson's family. Laura brought her own family to the fray, including her poised and lovely young daughter. Mitt Romney is conservative treasure. Charlie and Pofarmer were both well represented in the fisticuffs over the wisdom of the meltdown bail-out. Jane & I had the pleasure of sitting at Jay Nordlinger's table last night, and as you might imagine, he was a most gracious host. One of our fellow guests turned out to yet another JOMer. Apparently they're everywhere, TM!

sbw

In lieu of a post election day editorial our editor ran McCain's concession speech which was an exercise in comity that was better than anything I could offer.

Today a person called to ask if we planned to run Obama's speech on winning the election. I declined pointing out that it was accessible through many avenues, had been described by our coverage, and that our focus was more on local news and sports.

I was gracious and friendly and did not read what I had written that I was advised not to run.

clarice

This jerk claims he was Cameron's source on Palin--read what he says carefully and you'll see he was making shit up and Cameron bought it.

The Cruise Report! Part Deux

Our first report would not be complete without wish-you-were-here shipboard sunsets, thoughtfully provided by Caro. We're confident that Hit is, indeed, with us in spirit, so this-one's-for-you. . More (hopefully!) later. The weather suddenly appears to be catching up with us and I'm off to make sure my life jacket is in order. The Captain assures us that he doesn't intend to lose a second ship, and is perfectly capable of negotiating the narrow Grand Turk channel without being blown upon its world famous reef. In any case, My own thorough machine check reveals that the necessary salvage equipment is plentiful and well oiled. Hypocritical feminists would probably be secretly pleased to know that it's apparently still women and children first.

Avast ye lubbers, we're away!

As you can see from Part Deux, the screws seem to be working. Guess I'll be off to party like there's no tomorrow!

Thanks,JMH.

Sbw, I sent an email to Brit with Martin's post in it. I don't know if he'll see it, but I noted that if Martin was telling the truth, Cameron and Fox helped him slander Palin.

Have fun, jmh..oops just a minute, I dropped the screwdriver..Smoooooches.

Bush and Truman do have certain qualities in common.

Both are/were prickly, hard-assed guys, who did what they thought was right and to Hell with the rest of it. I really don't think there is a whole lot of 'turn the other cheek' in George Bush. He is just stubborn.

Truman came at the end of the New Deal era, and Bush is at the end of the 'Reagan Era'. Yes, this is the end of the Reagan Era, friends. And coming at the end means that all those ideas that seemed so great at the beginning are now shopworn and 'unpopular'.

Ideas wear out, and people wear on other people. GWB wasn't as annoyingly ubiquitous as Clinton, who seemed to be on TV 24/7 some weeks, but he has worn a lot of people out, partly because he is one stubborn cuss who wouldn't always bow to public opinion/the Media to get favorable treatment.

I personally wish he had been a better President, but considering the alternatives were Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004, we could have done a lot worse.

Despite or because of Barack Obama, I think in the years to come Bush will be regarded in a different light than today. He may forever be equated to Herbert Hoover, but I sort of doubt that. We have no idea how Barack will be as a President, but I personally think the next four years are going to be a rough ride no matter who was elected President this year. Our holiday from history in the '90's is also well and truly over.

It's just that a lot of the Media want it to be Sept. 10, 2001 again, and they are frankly idiots.

Elliott

Glad to hear all are having fun. I hope the good weather continues...but, that's really in Clarice's hands, isn't it?

Yes, it seems to be, Elliott..Perhaps I am the One, after all.

Mine is in immoderation.

I wonder what Stanley Rubin thinks of Marty's contribution to the Group.

I called him a puffed up toad for issuing threats and then challenged him to make good on his bluff. I'd really like to hear all that he has to say, and I'd like to hear what she says in response.

Rick Ballard

I wonder when Marty first went on Obama's payroll. I don't wonder at McCain's lack of judgment in hiring him whatsoever.

Elliott

Hot Air and others say it's a hoax.

centralcal

Did any of you listen to the podcast of Greta setting O'Reilly straight on his radio show!

She flat out nailed it as gossip and rumors, rather than news. BOR was not happy about that and started spinning furiously in his own "no spin zone."

Plus, she says Cameron called her and said he was basically a tool.

As we enter the Era of the painer; images of the past should be there, but aren't.

Your family will be ruined. They will be seeing things and hearing things and be pained. They will be used for diseases. Dems are luciferians and Obama is one. What did lucifeirnas do under Clinton? It won't be any different. Obama is just going to make them torture more and as your families are destroyed, driven insane and, this time, lose their money; I'm going to avoid the things and maybe they'll leave a non American alone.

It's not sex unless she's there otherwise it's a disease. Look at the thing, would you?

Boatbuilder

One of the wonderful things about freedom of speech is that it makes it so much easier to spot the idiots. And the cowards.
I think Sarah has said it all. What a petty, vindictive jerk.
I wonder if he was also the guy who prepped McCain for his highly persuasive explanation (not) of why Joe the Plumber's basic point--that high taxes on productive individuals are unfair and hurt the economy--was the key reason to vote for McCain and not Obama. (Did he even understand it?)
It is discouraging to know that the Republican "elitists" are even more small-minded and petty than I thought they were. That's pretty damn low.

Boatbuilder

Well--if it's a hoax its a good one. It got me. I'm trying to come up with a rational explanation for what the Republican (and fake Republican) elitists have been saying about Palin (just look at the comments on the "Eisenstadt" blog) and I am still at a loss. Either the "insiders" spilling this crap or the press weasels putting it out, or both, are lower than dirt--even if its true (which I don't buy for a second).

centralcal

Boatbuilder: It is a HOAX. This fools has pulled HOAXes before.

Boat--it's a hoax I'm sorry to say. I did't know that when I posted it, of course.

Ya know, it would be more interesting to figure out how the Dims managed to gain seats with an 11% congressional approval rating.

Easy, Pofarmer, the media is meshugginah about Bush. And hoi polloi is sheep ahoy.

If we are talking relative timing, E., remember that Hoover was the guy coming in to office after the crash...

Thomas Collins

The notion that Palin hurt McCain is ludicrous. Palin gave McCain a chance to win. Until the financial meltdown, McCain, having erased Obama's advantage, was consistently ahead of Obama in the polls. For those who think Romney could have given McCain "financial cred" during the meltdown, think about how Romney the consummate finance type would have been portrayed by the Dems and MSM. They would have portrayed Romeny as the type who destroyed jobs at companies and then engaged in unregulated hocus pocus that caused the mess. Demagoguery? Sure, but it would have been effective with Romney as the Veep. Pawlenty? Please. Nothing against Pawlenty, but McCain needed convention sizzle. Huckabee? No way.

Why did Zero win? Let's try the simpleton's approach (my style, since I'm a simpleton). Voters often get weary about wars and turn against war leaders who once had overwhelming popularity. Zero ran a good campaign. See Evan Thomas on how MSM helps the Dems. In this election, MSM gave Zero even more help than Dems usually get. Folks blamed the party in the White House for the financial tsunami (yes, unfair, given Barney's and Chuckie's and Chris "Angelo's Buddy" Dodd's and all the other Dems responsible for the mess, but life is unfair).

Instead of giving us a circular firing squad circus, GOPers should be pounding away at Zero's hedging on missile defense for Poland, and GOPers should be all over the airwaves warning Zero about issuing executive orders that would jeopardize America getting on the path to energy security. Too soon to expect the GOP to stop whining over spilled milk and become a vigorous opposition party? Not soon enough in my view.

Hot Air has a post called the 'Fitzgerald Factor' speculating about whether or not Obama will keep Fitz on the job. The second page of comments has the Plame Affair in hot combat, and MayBee is swinging a battleax.
==========================

PD

I took a look at the CNN article. I notice that it focuses entirely on approval ratings of outgoing President Bush, and says not a word about the outgoing Congress ... which has lower ratings than Bush.

MayBee

Too funny! Shuster at MSNBC fell for it too and went on the air with it.

Every time they do that, I understand why they worked so hard to debunk the "muslim" rumors. These people will believe anything, and think other people do, too.

Thanks MayBee for taking on the Shipleys of the world at Hot Air...

Well done by Maybee; the troll that the intelligent people were doing battle with was a longtime snarky douche that is one of the reasons that I rarely comment there. The other major reason is AP is such a knob.

Porchlight

Thomas Collins, you are right - anyone with a brain can see that despite the MSM's best efforts, Palin helped McCain. You don't draw nearly 20K people on a day's notice just before the election and not help the ticket. Romney and Pawlenty would have been equally demonized and/or ignored, and wouldn't have drawn enough fiscally conservative indys to make a difference.

The economic crisis hurtled McCain's ship toward a lee shore, the heroic efforts of the first lieutenant notwithstanding. Add the celebrity AA opponent and the general bad weather for Repubs this year and the defeat was pretty much written.

Chuck

Phil Berg may become one of the greatest American heroes! The Supreme Court seems serious about actually determining whether Obama is natural born (it's quite logical from his own actions to conclude he isn't).
The one (and only) thing the Federal Election Commission takes responsibility for is money. What are they doing about the RNC's complaint regarding Obama's contributions?
Has anybody made a list of Obama's possible crimes? Treason, felonies, murder, taking bribes, intimidation...?

kim

What's the latest from the Supremes, Chuck? Last I heard it's completely at their discretion whether or not they clear up this Constitutional question, and little hint that they are inclined to do so.
================================

Porchlight

JMH, thanks for the stellar update! It's obvious to all that you are having a terrific time. I would be really impressed if the Reagan tattoos were real though.

Strawman Cometh

"Supreme Court seems serious about actually determining whether Obama is natural born"
I have thought it would be a hoot if John Roberts would insist on examining the 0's paperwork before the swearing in.

kim

It would seem from the history of the last eight years that it would be good for the Republic and the Constitution for Supreme Court to do whatever they can to ensure the legitimacy of this election, though they don't have to do anything.

Plame?

http://tvdecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/11/10/msnbc-olbermann-renew-contract/

Fitz is a Harvard pal who runs(pay and return from operations laws, 5 years) the CIA agents like Plame through the USAID funded programs there and probably had something to do with Obamas's dad getting him in, not that he was an informant like Obama's two brothers. Fitz will probably gets more money for passing on Plame's violations.

The FBI(supreme court) is an executive, but no one mentioned this under Bush so they could screw the US government.


The picture was rich. Call me(yes me) Craig.

The FEC cannot do anything because it has no quoroum and therefore cannot take any action whatsoever.

FrankE

Yes, it's like the entire country was foolishly marching to a different drummer.
Somehow, the majority of voters were clearly out of step with Bush, but somehow in step with each other.

Could that mean anything other than Bush has been severely out of step with the bulk of the American public???

kim

Well, Craig, that's a nice link to 'What's the Matter with Greenwich'.
====================================

kim

Actually, clarice, I have hopes they'll call his bluff. It can't be pleasant for them to have Obama thumbing his nose at the Constitution. If the Russians can send signals early, why not the Supremes? They may get a lot of business from him if our fears about Obama's autocracy are valid.
==============================

kim

Dang, I should have said 'fingering his nose'.
============================

kim

FrankE, c'mon, this was a close race, and McCain, the second coming of Bush was ahead in the polls a short two months ago. Might as well get used to the fact that Bush's stock is going to rise for the next century as objective historians start writing what's in the archives.
====================================

What a great update from JMH. Sounds like they are having fun!

I should of gone because I turned off all media and started to bake. Today was beer bread.

I'll have to send the recipe to Hit. :) I will also have to join the new gym in town and actually go.

Who is everyone's favorite for RNC chair?
I hear it is Gingrich versus Michael Steele . (Nobody could be worse than Duncan.)

Jennifer

Now that the election is over can the FEC make his campaign provide names for all their donors? I know his lawyers prevented them from making them provide that information before the election but aren't Americans allowed to know that information now that the election is over?

Captain Hate

Somehow, the majority of voters were clearly out of step with Bush, but somehow in step with each other.

Bush wasn't up for election, genius; two douches from the Senate, one of those places with lower ratings than Bush, were. And one of them had to win. Using "somehow" (twice) and "clearly" in the same poorly constructed sentence is pretty funny. Send smarter trolls, Axelrod.

kim

And Bush's two terms will be nicely book-ended by the criminality in the administrations of his predecessor and successor. For historians, it will nicely explain the decay in the Democratic Party, succored by Soros and others like him, that led to the fragmenting of the Democratic Party by the 2030's.
======================================

Rick Ballard

"(Nobody could be worse than Duncan.)"

Please, please, please don't say that. John McCain would be much worse. Arlen Specter even worse than McCain. Lindsay Graham worse than both of them. The Maine Senators.

Now you've ruined my whole evening.

Talent of Missouri would be good. I'm not sure about Newt. He's not quite as coherent as he used to be.

Craig's link to the slate article about Greenwich and Fairfield County is interesting. The guy who beat Chris Shays:
"Himes, as this New York Times profile shows, is the ultimate self-made pissed-off yuppie: a member of Harvard's crew team, a Rhodes Scholar, a former Goldman Sachs banker, and a resident of Greenwich."

What is it with these Goldman Sachs creepers?

I hadn't thought about the election sparing us Lindsay Graham pontificating. There is a silver lining after all.

So Obama is not sworn in as President, VP Joe Biden is sworn in as VP and immediately ascends to President. Then he chooses Hillary Clinton as Vice President and we have eight years of fun after the race riots burn down the SCOTUS building and the Capitol.

narciso

Who is the Allah character, he wasn't always so dour; when he had a stand alone blog. Now James Burnham and Whittaker
Chambers would seem more upbeat. Capt. Ed, Michelle, have their own identity.

So Cameron and company, Newsweek, NR, et al;were taken in by a third rate Stephen Glass. Those layers of editors and
producers really worked out; as opposed to
us, pajama mujahadeen network. Will,Stewart,
Olbermann show any degree of contrition or integrity. I know a rhetorical question. My only question though is letting Matt Lauer up to Wasilla; release the wolves. I must admit I was really angry when I read that tongue bath by Newsweek, spitting at a decent man and a good woman. Having a hearty chuckle at the outright slanders of the GOP duo.

How can she not be given first crack at the nomination; if she wants it.She's certainly paid her dues on the matter. Jindal missed the audition last time, in part because he needs to clean up the Augean stable of LA; but his Christian convert, exorcizing, budget cutting ways would likely have earned him nearly as much flak. Pawlenty, nice guy, but he'd have a tough time inspiring an AmWay convention. Romney, makes a decent Treasury secretary. She dragged McCain along the 40 yard line; on a snowmobile. Then the friendly fire
'astroturf' tries to dock her for fuel
charges, machine rentals, et al.
