Anti-Colonialism Aside, Obama Endorses U.K. via Twitter

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Colonialism Défense de Rorke's DriftPresident Barack Obama is an ideological guy, Save Jerseyans. No one disputes that. And his far-left worldview makes him predisposed to blame most of the world’s problems on the colonial powers (and their progeny – like us). Consider his ill-fated backing for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammad Morsi in Egypt. Morsi’s predecessor was propped up by western powers (primarily us) and, to the President, that meant he was worthy of deposition. Look how that turned out.

So was the President mugged by global reality (or taking leave of his instincts) prior to tweeting THIS:

Polls Auger Well For GOP This November

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Obama in EgyptThe latest polls show President Obama’s approval at a new low – 38%.

That’s the verdict from the respected Gallup poll. And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, the same poll shows that nearly 60% of those surveyed disapprove of the president’s job performance so far.

And there’s more bad news from a just-released NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows Obama’s approval rating for foreign policy is at a new low of 30%

The poll also found that 47% believe the country is less safe than it was before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks—up sharply from 28% just one year ago.

And thats not the half of it. Consider the following:

Obama Approval Hits 36% in New Jersey

Booker Tops Bell By 13-Points But (Still) Well Under 50%

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Obama Bows to ChristieYou’re going to miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. The Great One had it right, Save Jerseyans.

A new FDU Public Mind poll of 721 registered voters out Wednesday found 42% of those polled supporting Cory Booker (D-Twitter) for reelection whereas 29% were in challenger Jeff Bell’s corner.

That’s a 13-point lead for His Royal Twitterness but he’s 8-points south of the 50% threshold with two months to go.

Update: Obama Loses His Building in Willingboro

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Obama and KidsIf Barack Obama can’t buy a vowel (or a building) in Willingboro, New Jersey, Save Jerseyans, then it’s time to hang it up.  Game over. The lamest of all lame ducks.

But that’s where he’s at today. After causing a national stir by moving to change its town center’s name from JFK to Obama, Willingboro’s council did an about-face on Tuesday night and rescinded its early August decision to rename the Kennedy Center.

Obama – and the Presidency – Hit Rock Bottom

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Angry ObamaPresident James Buchanan didn’t just failed to stop the Civil War, Save Jerseyans, for which I won’t condemn him because it was likely inevitable. He didn’t even try. In his State of the Union message to Congress, Buchanan gave a verbal shrug.

“All for which the slave States have ever contended, is to be let alone and permitted to manage their domestic institutions in their own way, Buchanan said. “As sovereign States, they, and they alone, are responsible before God and the world for the slavery existing among them. For this the people of the North are not more responsible and have no more right to interfere than with similar institutions in Russia or in Brazil.”

Obama ‘Detached?’ Guess Who Pegged It First…

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Barack ObamaIn the wake of his failure to act or even say very much in response to recent horrific events and considering his frequent vacations and golf outings, everybody’s now talking about how President Obama seems detached, bored, disinterested and certainly disengaged from his job and the nation as a whole.

Even the usually adoring Maureen Dowd of the usually gushing New York Times has now been forced to admit that Obama is, by his own choice “a man alone” and she concludes: The president who was elected because he was a hot commodity is now a wet blanket.”

A hot commodity?

Really?

New Poll: Obama Leading Dems To Defeat

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Obama in GermanyA new, national McClatchy-Marist poll is out and it shows that President Barack Obama is dragging down his party and hurting the prospects of fellow Democrats as they head into midterm elections. Indeed, the potential repercussions of the president’s slide are serious.

Consider the following:

  • Just 40 percent of voters polled approve of the way Obama’s doing his job. This ties his worst mark in three years and the second worst of his presidency.

Obama To Pull Major Stunt Aug. 17 – 19?

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

ObamaPresident Obama is on the ropes.

His poll numbers are in the tank and Democrats are worried.

They’re clearly off their mark as the post Labor Day election season approaches. Indeed, all the signs point to significant gains by Republicans this November.

Now, reports are circulating that Obama has Something Big planned. He’ll be headed back to Washington from Martha’s Vineyard one week from today — Sunday, August 17. He’ll return to his elite vacation retreat on Tuesday, August 19.

That signals a Major Development, possibly announced by the president on Monday, August 18.

Willingboro Council’s Baseless Faith in Obama

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

john f kennedyYou may or may not have heard how, on Tuesday, Willingboro’s township council approved a resolution to rename its recreational hub from ‘The Kennedy Center’ to ‘The Obama Center’ going forward.

Yes, Save Jerseyans, there are still places in America where our distressingly incompetent and obnoxiously authoritarian 44th president . By way of background, Willingboro is 72.74% black and many residents were understandably proud when their country elected Barack Obama.

How they’re STILL proud is less easy to grasp.

Buyers’ Remorse

Now Americans Say They Want Romney

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Romney vs. ObamaGet this: Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a new CNN/ORC poll shows.

According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote while Obama would receive only 44%, CNN reported. That’s quite a turnaround, especially when you consider that Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election.

And there’s more interesting news in the poll:

Comparing Their Responses

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

It’s like listening to leaders of different nations, Save Jerseyans, not just different times. And is it just me, or does our President always sound inconvenienced by international events? The 40th President had an elevated view of America’s role in the world. The 44th… well, he’s got bigger fish to fry. Like socialized medicine, salads in school cafeterias and auditing tea party groups.

Listen and compare…

2nd Poll Finds Booker Under 50%

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Booker-Corzine-Obama-and-Weinberg43% to Republican nominee Jeff Bell’s 23%, Save Jerseyans (click here to read the full report/data tables).

Here are some more details from Patrick Murray’s Monmouth Polling Institute:

“When asked whether Booker should be reelected, 44% of New Jersey voters say he deserves another term while 35% say it is time to have someone else in that Senate seat. Four months ago, a solid majority of 55% said that Booker should be reelected. The number of voters who say it is time for someone new, though, is basically the same as it was in February (33%). The shift in support for Booker has come from those who previously said he deserved reelection but now say they are unsure – 21%, up from 12% in February.”

Lance Lauds SCOTUS Obama Rebuke

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

supreme court 2012Conservatives and Liberals on America’s High Court agree on one point, Save Jerseyans: Barack Obama is a not a king.

That’s the gist of today’s unanimous U.S. Supreme Court ruling (click here to read the NLRB v. Noel Canning opinion), authored by Justice Breyer, confirming that the President of the United States acted illegally when he made three recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board back in January 2012 in order to circumvent to the Senate confirmation process.

“Because the Senate was in session during its pro forma sessions,” the Justice wrote, “the President made the recess appointments at issue during a 3-day
recess. Three days is too short a time to bring a recess within the
scope of the Clause, so the President lacked the authority to make
those appointments.”

New Jersey’s own Rep. Leonard Lance (R-07) says it’s “a victory for the Constitution and the rule of law.”

The Infuriating Iraq War Miseducation of an Obamaphile

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

FallujahThere’s plenty that I find utterly and depressingly confounding about ideological liberalism, Save Jerseyans, but nothing makes me reach for the Aspirin so quickly in recent days as when I hear an Obamaphile try to explain (or rationalize) what’s transpiring in Iraq.

***Slams head on desk.***

Who are these people?

Well, like their leader, they violently and loudly opposed the 2007 Iraq War troop “surge” which, in case you’ve forgotten, was President George W. Bush’s controversial answer to a dramatic increase in insurgent activity; approximately 20,000 U.S. troops were sent to supplement the efforts of other American armed forces and Allied-trained Iraqi security forces.

It worked, though at a high cost. What happened – or didn’t happen – in Iraq since the surge is the issue at hand and, as the great Charles Krauthammer recently explained in his characteristically direct manner, “[w]e can debate forever whether those costs were worth it, but what is not debatable is Obama’s responsibility for the return of the Islamist insurgency that had been routed by the time he became president.”
