Crucial independent voters abandoning Obama, now under 40%, lowest ever

Democrat president Barack Obama points Two new polls this morning augur ill for President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats who control Congress.

The worst -- from Gallup -- finds that for the first time since Obama took the oath, his support among independents, a key voter segment in his decisive 2008 coalition election win, has fallen below 40%.

The new tracking finds that Obama's support among all voter segments has declined in the past year, but nowhere more than among independents.

Only 38% now support him, an 18-point drop from 52 weeks ago, when polls first began showing the nation's rapidly-growing population of independent voters peeling off, as Obama relentlessly pushed his healthcare plan and ignored polls saying jobs and the economy were uppermost on voters' minds.

In that same time span, support for the Democrat has fallen 9 points among Democrats (from 90% to 81%) and 8 points among Republicans (from 20% to 12%).

Collectively, only 46% of Americans approve of the president's job performance, just 1 point above his worst approval of 45%. Obama's approval has not been above 50% since February.

Despite his professed success with the healthcare legislation, Obama is confronting a stubbornly sluggish economic recovery, continuing high unemployment, growing concerns over deficits and spending, impatience among some supporters such as gays and Hispanics and mounting casualties in his ongoing Afghanistan military campaign.

Other recent presidents suffered similar low ratings in their second year -- Jimmy Carter (40%), Ronald Reagan (42%) and Bill Clinton (43%).

And each of those presidents' parties lost substantial numbers of congressional seats in the ensuing midterm elections. Democrats Barack Obama
 and Joe Biden talking

George W. Bush's experience ran counter to that pattern; his Republican Party actually gained seats in the 2002 midterm elections,  the first time that had happened since Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first midterm election.

Reagan and Clinton recovered in the second half of their first terms to easily win reelection; Carter did not.

Also out this morning, a new Harris Poll of 2,227 adults finds widespread dissatisfaction and disenchantment with leading Democrats in Washington. Only 26% have a favorable view of Vice President Joe Biden's job performance, while nearly half (45%) have a negative view of his job.

Only one-in-five approve of the job done by California's own Speaker Nancy Pelosi, while nearly half (49%) give her negative reviews.

The public is happy with neither political party in Congress, with 54% disapproving of the majority Democrats' job performance and 52% dissatisfied with the minority Republicans' work.

You'll never guess which female secretary of State gets the best reviews in the Obama Cabinet. Hillary Clinton's job performance draws positive ratings from 45% of those surveyed, while 35% give her a negative job evaluation.

Boy - the lefties are going to go nuts again. TOTT is staying with the truth.

Alot of Democrats spit on Hillary and now she will have the last laugh...... Buyers remorse - you fell for the advertising but ya just dont care for the Obama doll you purchased..... Are you stil chanting now ????

I would like to suggest Prez. follow his own advice to BP, suggesting they need to consider the risk of American casualty, and not just profit projections in decision making processes. For every action there is a reaction, and Americans are suffering as a result. The only jobs being savored are government jobs, he is protecting jobs for illegal immigrants, but AMERICANS are losing theirs. your continuing the kill the middle class agenda.

Let's have NASA help the Muslim countries? That's the absolute last straw for me. I mean, how idiotic can you get.

Interesting....Obama isn't a R. Reagan. He is more like a Carter. Worse than Carter actually. We need to get nueter him in the midterms in order to prevent him from doing anymore damage to this country.

easy to give Clinton a good review. She is not in a position to do much harm, yet. Her speech to the leaders in Central America... a shame to the nation.

Kind of curious as to what the weighting is for the party ID breakdown and how it was arrived at by Gallup. Looks like a 35% DEM, 26% REP, 38% IND split. I wonder what the split will be on election day this November. If the supposed Republican tsunami is happening this fall I'd expect there to be more parity in the Dem/Rep percentages since the congressional districts are so gerrymandered to protect one party or the other with little competition.

"Despite his professed success with the healthcare legislation,..."

Yeah, that's it. What a success! Kinda like a successful bank heist. But you gotta take a win where you can get it.

So only 38% of independents remain afraid of being labled "racist" if they admit they don't approve of Obama!

What the polls don't show is the degree of antagonism toward the commander-in-thief and his henchmen and women. The degree os disgust towards these traitors is so intense that the system is in serious danger of totally breaking down. Obozo doesn't get it, either because he simply is being lied to by his advisors or he just doesn't care about anything other than his agenda, but he is headed rapidly towards the ash heap of failure in the history books. Unfortunately in the meantime, the rest of us have to live with it.

I'm not surprised that his poll numbers are dropping like a rock. I bought the 'hope and change" crap and now feel like a moron. I really thought this clown was different. Have you seen all the wasteful crap they stuffed into the health care bill? What has he actually accomplished other than swearing in an interview? Nice decorum for the leader of the free world. Does this guy even produce testosterone? You shouldn't have been able to elect a Republican to dog catcher for 20 years after the Cheney regime, but the GOP will own both the House and Senate after November because Obama is such a tool. This guy makes Jimmy Carter look like he knew what he was doing. Instead of being a role model for African Americans, he's an embarrassment. The only good news is that Marxist whore Pelosi will be gone. Did you hear that evil bitch say that "unemployment benefits stimulate the economy". We need austerity measures like Greece has. Get you fat, lazy, entitled Americans back to work, innovating and figuring out how to do something other than cash a gov't check. You losers sicken me, and I am sick to my stomach that my sweat and hard work goes to supporting your lazy asses. America is over people!!! Third World here we come.

We independents are unhappy with Obama but we're going to take the Republicans to the guillotine this fall for what they're doing to this country. We all can see it and we all know where the blame falls. And it ain't on Barack Obama.

Who are this idiotic 38% who still support this marxist tyrant?

"... Obama is confronting a stubbornly sluggish economic recovery..." NO!! Obama has CREATED this stubbornly sluggish economic recovery. Can't blame Bush or any other outside force - except maybe Congress.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid. Put them altogether and you have a band of Progressive Liberals who believe in big government and disassembling of the Constitution....So this groundswell of support for Hillary to me is worrisome because she believes in the same ideology as Obama! I believe Obama if things go down the tubes he may decide not to run in 2012 and turn the reins over to Hillary....same old, same old...we will be down the same road to one world government and socialism...so voting for Hillary is a continuation of the road we are traveling with this administration. Disastrous and self defeating. We need to elect true conservatives in 2010 to stop the tide of radical legislation and big government spending...

Our brilliant and beloved President needs our support more than ever. His Hope and Change agenda is being threatened by the radical right. We must support our leader! Our President has promised to return the nations wealth to the people. He is just getting warmed up. Obama/Biden 2012!

Obama is a joke; he is a man who has never had a real job, produced any real services or products, has never managed anything, and has surrounded himself with some of the biggest losers ever to hit the political landscape.

Obama has continued the exact path Bush was following, with overspending, illegal wars, support for illegal aliens and the corrupt Mexican government, and destruction of our basic freedoms.

Americans are sick of these criminal politicians, and are screaming out for real leadership, only to be called names by politicans that promised change.....adding fuel to the fire. What a sad state of affairs.

Sabastian Curry

Barry better get busy and legalize all those illegal aliens, he's gonna need them and all the dead people to get re-elected.

I wonder if my dead dad will vote for him? No matter, by then everyone will hate him except for the tribe. He seems to have great skills in managing to p*ss off every constituant, regardless of viewpoint. That is a special skill.

Here's news: He will not run for re-election. He has as much said so. By then there will be numerous state laws REQUIRING a real birth cert. Numerous states will have illegal immigration enforcement laws in which he could be charged. As much as he wants top play golf in AZ, there's zero chance of him entering that state sans papers.

It's simple.
Obama lied.

He lied about who he was.
He lied about what he was going to do.
He lied about being post-partisan.
He lied about being a deficit hawk.
He lied about Afganistan.
He lied about Iraq.
He said Patraeus was incompetent, then put him in Iraq.
He said that surges would never work, then approved his own surge.
He lied about his record.
He lied about his past.

He just.... lies.

Rat vermin corrupted Boss Tweed-Obama and his corrupted Tammany Hall regime is finally being exposed.
Otraitor is a man-child emperor-with-no-clothes. He is a rat vermin traitor with a plummeting popularity rating because he hates America, hates freedom and hates liberty. He works for Goldman Sachs and the banking oligarchs along with Dodd and Frank. He supports expanded wars - but strangely Soros funded Code Pink and Media Matters are silent for this baby-dictator Obama. Obama is weak and the world is destabilizing, he is a slave to the oligarchical collectivists and rules our population with an iron fist with a velvet glove. Obama coddles terrorists, Iran, MS13 gangs, Mexican Narco-State Drug Czars and criminals with sanctuary and open borders.. He cracks down on the middle class - the law abiding tax paying child bearing middle class whom he considers subjects in his regime. His IRS has audited at a rate 300% above normal. His census is a Nazi-like info-gathering attempt. He has outspent all previous presidents in one year. He is big brother, he is a traitor and he is a little man child moron figurehead empty suit that acts childish and thin skinned because he is uneducated. Sure he was indoctrinated with progressive trash, but given what he says and thinks he is a stupid uneducated failure of a man that could not hunt, grow food for himself, nor even change his tire. He knows nothing of math, history, physics or chemistry, his ideas are idiot Alinsky eructations and regurgitations, his speech capability without a teleprompter is pathetic and he is one of the stupidest people to ever grace the Office of the President. This moron man-child Otraitor looks and acts like a thin skinned loser. He is a disgusting traitor and a progressive rat that will rot in hell.
This Obama regime is the modern Boss Tweed Tammany Hall. The depraved nature of the Democrat party and its hidden progressive-Marxist agenda has been a cancer on America for well over a 100 years now, and today, the main stream media is controlled by the progressives so we don't have Thomas Nast drawings exposing what this rat vermin Obama is doing.


Judging from his recent actions, I believe Obama is trying to assure a Republican takeover of Congress.

I believe he realizes that would greatly improve his odds of re-election in 2012.

Astounding that Saul Alinsky follower Hillary Clinton gets good marks. Her blunders are also covered up by the Obamamedia...

He is a one-term president. Bill Clinton is already setting the stage for Hillary to come out and challenge Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2012. Go Hillary!

Can you imagine having anyone look you in the face with that expression? It is so incredibly condescending and even contemptuous to my eyes. It is an expression that only a disrespectful narcissist could conjure up. And I'm no fan of Joe Biden, but he has more experience and political savvy in his little toe than Obama will ever have. Having Obama look him in the face like that must be incredibly gauling. But then again, politicians, whores that they are, can put up with anything, can't they.

I am a black voter who can see in Obama what many whites refuse to see, and i would rather have republicans in office than these demos led by the greast lying president of all, Obama. He sides with every group, including hate groups, sometimes behind closed doors, with pretty speeches and promises, then he ignores them and do nothing he said. I can't forget Rev. Wright and his preaching hate for America and the white man. For 20 years he was Obama's pastor, mentor, close advisor. Why would he stay that long if he did not agree with that hate? The real Obama now comes out when he files a lawsuit against a state he suppose to represent as president. Mr Obama, why not sit down with Gov Brewer and talk about illigal immigration and show respect for all Americans?

I don't like him standing up there saying his economic stimulus is working, when I can't find a job. Nobody can in Michigan. AND our benefits are gone, so they don't want to even help us! They are going to pretend everything is good, when it is not, even at the expense of people's lives. No way will I support Obama again.

White America is under attack by minority groups. Barack Hussein Obama is their leader. Their plans?, take over America and change it to whatever they want with government control. With Obama in charge, expect muslims to rise to the top in America.

The Arrogance, radical left wing agenda, and corruption all have to go in Nov. We need a clean sweep. A vote for any Democrat in Nov is a vote to keep Nancy Pelosi in power, and in favor of the corrupt spending and debt. As for Obama we have the solution. We can fix our mistake.....in 2012. Hillary 2012!!!!!

It seems that Mr. Obama's main goal is to weaken us to the point where he can deliver us to our enemies. One minor problem standing in the way, is our 2nd Amendment rights which he's trying to overturn. The citizens will be the last line of defense.

I just hope we can eventually undo the enormous amount of damage he's causing. Also, for anyone who still supports this man, you're in for a rude awakening - biggest tax hike in history coming down the pike for EVERYONE including the poor. He and his gang of communist czars obviously underestimate the will of Americans and our history of fighting for freedom at all costs.

The scary part is that almost 40% of people completely ignore reality and base their opinion on anything except for what really matters. There must be some test people who vote have to pass

Obama is a fool!!!!

This is the most corrupt president and administration since FDR. They have absolutely no regard for the American people, much less the Constitution. To them, the end justifies the means, just as their hero, Alinsky, said.

Obama is an arrogant, narcissistic, megalomaniac, who will happily lie, cheat, steal, and trample the Constitution to not only retain his power, but elevate it to the level of Ceasar Chavez. This man is the enemy of American freedom, liberty, and prosperity.

I am not very happy with the performance of Republicans in the past decade myself, but in order to stop the total ruination of our great country, we absolutely MUST deprive this tyrant of his power in Congress this November, before it's too late.

Get involved in your local politics to have a voice in the selection of your local and state candidates, by all means. There may be as few as 20 or 30 folks running your county party. Don't let a few choose for the many - GET INVOLVED!

In the meantime, let's pull this tyrant's teeth this November!

Do you get the impression that obama could care less about what Americans think about him? He has his agenda, and by God, he's going to ram it through, no matter what Americans say or think. He really doesn't care if democrats get re-elected; h*ll, he doesn't care if HE gets re-elected.

The only way Obama could successfully serve as President is as a counterweight to a Republican House and Senate. Unfortunately for him, he had a Democrat Congress and it fed his worst instincts, to expand the state and engorge the public purse.

He'll get what he needs this November - but the damage will already be done. The toothpaste is out of the tube, and he has two years left to serve.

As a hispanic, I had great hope for this country when Obama was elected. I must admit, i did not vote for Obama because he lacked real world and political experience. But once Mr Obama won the election, I committed myself to giving him a fair chance to govern. 18 months later and i can say without a shred of doubt, President Obama has been nothing short of a disaster. He pitched himself as a moderate with left leaning tendencies and has governed left of J Edgar Hoover. His handling of the economy has bordered on dereliction of duty. The stimulas program was a pay off to his political allies. His handling of healthcare has placed the greatest system in the free world on life support. His current recess appointment of a man who believes in rationing of care to the elderly and infirmed is detestable. His handling of the Afganistan and Iran has made our country more vulerable. Mr Obama campaigned as Michael Coloreone but behind smoke and mirrors there was only Fredo. Our only hope is the republicans pick up the House and hopefully the Senate and bury this adminstrations with subpoenas.

And finally, the worst part of this nightmare is how Mr Obama has divided this country along racial lines. He has set back race relations a good 30 yrs. I can't even talk to my african american friends and neighbors about President Obama without fear the discussion will turn into a race riot. Sad, very sad.

Hopefully, in 2012 we can elect a governor with solid credientials on cutting debt and running a government within a budget.

Independents have found their way back from being hoodwinked. There is no way this president will win reelection with his numbers testing the law of gravity at such a precipitous rate. I predict that his defeat could rival that of Jimmy Carter. He could of course decide not to seek reelection., which is a remote possibility. If his numbers are below 40% a year from now he may not, and you may see a resurgence of Hilary Clinton...She is probable not interested in testing the waters in what will be an obvious republican year.....read: Pelosi's Truth....at.....

TO ALL THE COMMUNIST IN THE IG,FBI,CIA,AND U.S. Senators and the left wing media outlets ===OBAMA goes about his business by speaking the lie. II Thessalonians 2 says that he comes "with all deceivableness of unrighteousness." Revelation 13:12 says, "and he spoke as a dragon...." Revelation 17 tells us that he was a false prophet, a prophet being one whose calling it is to speak and to teach. The armies of the world may have guns and tanks and bombs to bring people into submission; but the power of speech and ideas is a mighty power. In his initial attempts to destroy the cause of God, the devil used a serpent to deceive the woman with crooked speech: "You will be like God." Now he uses a "dragon" who speaks crafty, lying words. His speeches will be heard by millions who will hang on his persuasive rhetoric. The content as well as the form of his speech will attract. Like most false prophets, he will even be sincere and passionate. But he is a liar. He adds dashes of truth to the mix, so that his lie tastes like truth. He will use all the right catchwords, using the language of the church, even throwing in a Bible text or two. But he is the ultimate Liar, and will deceive many.
OBAMA will use every tool available: school teachers, politicians, news broadcasters, artists, musicians, scientists and doctors, lawyers and businessmen. All will be pressed into the service of OBAMA to deceive men. But especially he will use those whose calling it is to persuade and to teach -- men who claim to be preachers of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ah yes, a demo prez w/ a demo senate = bad.

Where was all the bad press with a repub prez w/ a repub senate?

I saw no improvement in this country with Bush, and I see none now for the four years of Obama.

And I seriously doubt there will be any improvement in 2012, because regardless of which party wins, America will lose.

Wake up and smell the coffee, neither side gives a flying hoot about common Americans.

Got to be the worst President of United States in history. Look at his record data: bows to leaders of Foreign Countries, laughs with our enemies like Chavez, says America is made of Muslin history and not christian faith, runs up our deficit in fastest of any President in just 18 months, stands with Mexico President in blasting follow Americans of Arizona, nationalizes health system 1/6 of economy, automobile industry (GM and Chrysler), bank industry, his stimulus is a failure and no war objective in Afghanistan.

Manager of the largest environment disaster in American history.

This is the change of hope for America? Where is America media, in President Obama's back pocket, the American Government media.

It's normal people don't like changes and you can never make it right. I have never seen a president which became more more popular.....

I voted against the Republicans in '08 because they refused to apologize for the 'Bridge To Nowhere'. But the spending spree by the Democrats have made the Bridge to Nowhere look like a bargain. There are but two viable parties .. absolutely bizarre that when we fired one party for encroaching on to much into our lives and incomes, the other party somehow takes that as a mandate to ramp the same tendencies into overdrive!

I spent three weeks in a hospital in Naples, Florida with my wife I couldn't help noticing what was going on in the hospital and I had a lot of time to talk to the doctors and nurses about what I had observed. Below is a commentary from an ER Doctor. Do you think this might be a big reason our health care system and our social security system are so screwed up? Do you think this might be a big reason our taxes keep going up? Who do you think these people are going to vote for?
From a Florida ER doctor:
"I live and work in a state over run with illegals. They make more money having kids than we earn working full-time. Today I had a 25-year old with 8 kids - that's right 8; all illegal anchor babies and she had the nicest nails, cell phone, hand bag, clothing, etc. She makes about $1,500 monthly for each; you do the math. I used to say, We are the dumbest nation on earth. Now I must say and sadly admit: WE are the dumbest people on earth (that includes ME) for we elected the idiot ideologues who have passed the bills that allow this. Sorry, but we need a revolution. Vote them all out in 2010. "

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--- REMEMBER ---
IN NOVEMBER 2010, WE HAVE A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO CLEAN OUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE AND ONE-THIRD OF THE SENATE!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an insult and a kick in the butt to all of us...

Get mad and pass it on - I don't know how, but maybe some good will come of this travesty.
If the immigrant is over 65, they can apply for SSI and Medicaid and get more than a woman on Social Security, who worked from 1944 until 2004.
She is only getting $791 per month because she was born in 1924 and there's a 'catch 22.'
It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890. Each can also obtain an additional $580 in social assistance, for a total of $2,470 a month.
This compares to a single pensioner, who after contributing to the growth and development of America for 40 to 50 years, can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.
Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!
Consider sending this to all your American friends, so we can all be ticked off and maybe get the refugees cut back to $1,012 and the pensioners up to $2,470. Then we can enjoy some of the money we were forced to submit to the Government over the last 40 or 50 or 60 years. And not to receive a increase for 2010 Vote them all out of office.
Please forward this to every American to expose what our elected politicians have been doing for the past 11 years to over-taxed Americans.
SEND THIS TO EVERY AMERICAN TAXPAYER YOU KNOW.the commander ,,the end of america !!

So-called 'independents' are really just dissaffected, embarrassed, closet Republicans afraid to take a stand. They are the other side of the 'teabaggers': 99% White, voted for Republicans and now wanting to be contrite for having done so, but rese3rving the right to jump back into the losing ideology for reasons that revolve around race politics. Did they think Obama would restore the jobs lost to NAFTA and other gov. policies that have destroyed the country? He wasn't elected to save you from yourself.

I am proud to say I am a independent that has turned away from Obama! I believed Obama before he was elected and now I think he is the worst politicians ever and I think he hates America and Americans all you have to do is see his results.

God Bless America, we will survive obama!

Both communists and National Socialists prospered in this climate in which the common people powerfully rejected the whole concept of a liberal democracy.

In the 2009 election campaign obama put himself forward as the strong and decisive leader which america had been longing for. As many have commented, all the Party really offered was order, discipline and authority since they had not drawn up any detailed policies – however, it was indeed the order, discipline and authority which the america were longing and craving for! Moreover the party made it clear that, when elected, they would form a dictatorship – not a democracy, but this, again, was exactly what the people wanted!=====OBAMA goes about his business by speaking the lie.

..Election Crimes and the FBI
Federal Election Crimes
In democratic societies like the United States, the voting process is a means by which citizens hold their government accountable, conflicts are channeled into resolutions, and power transfers peacefully. Our system of representative government works only when honest ballots are not diluted by fraudulent ballots. When elections become corrupted, democracy becomes threatened.
The FBI has a limited role in ensuring fair and free elections in the United States. Election crimes become federal cases when:
The ballot includes one or more federal candidates;
The crime involves an election official abusing his duties;
The crime pertains to fraudulent voter registration;
Voters are not U.S. citizens.
Federal election crimes fall into three broad categories:
Campaign finance crimes
Voter/ballot fraud
Civil rights violations
Potential Federal Offenses
1. Campaign finance
A person gives more than $4,600 to a federal candidate (various limits apply for donations to and from committees and groups);
A donor asks a friend to give money to a federal candidate, promising to reimburse the friend; the friend makes the donation and the real donor reimburses him;
A corporation gives corporate money to a federal candidate;
A person who is neither a citizen nor a green card holder gives money to a federal, state, or local candidate.
2. Voter/ballot fraud
A voter intentionally gives false information when registering to vote;
A voter receives money or something of value in exchange for voting in a federal election or registering to vote;
Someone votes more than once in a federal election (e.g., someone mails in absentee ballots in the names of dead people);
An election official corrupts his or her office to benefit a candidate or party (e.g., lets unqualified voters cast ballots).
3. Civil rights violations
Someone threatens a voter with physical or economic harm unless the voter casts his ballot in a particular way;
Someone tries to prevent qualified voters from getting to the polls in a federal election;
A scheme exists to prevent minorities from voting.
What is NOT a federal election crime:
Giving voters a ride to the polls;
Offering voters a stamp to mail an absentee ballot;
Giving voters time off to vote;
Violating state campaign finance laws;
Distributing inaccurate campaign literature;
Campaigning too close to the polls;
Trying to convince an opponent to withdraw from a race.
If you think an election crime is occurring, call the election crimes coordinator at your local FBI office.


((((VERY QUIETLY OBAMA'S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT ))))))))

AP - WASHINGTON D.C. -
In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom of Information" has Released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College . Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.
This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as President article titled, "Obama Eligibility Questioned," leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey . This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama's citizenship or qualification to serve as president.

Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U..S. Attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter...

LET OTHER FOLKS KNOW THIS NEWS, THE MEDIA WON'T !

Subject: RE: Issue of Passport?

While I've little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi ?

So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?

And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi , what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration?

The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama's citizenship a rather short and simple one.

Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A : Yes, by his own admission.

Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities.
1) He traveled with a U.S. .. Passport,
2) He traveled with a British passport, or
3) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.

Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. .. State Department's "no travel" list in 1981.

Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.

If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.

Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and 2008..

Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

If you Don't care that Your President is not a natural born Citizen and in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete this, and then lower your American Flag to half-staff, because the U.S. Constitution is already on life-support, and won't survive much longer.

If you do care then Forward this to as many patriotic Americans as you can, because our country is being looted and ransacked! THE COMMANDER .THE END OF AMERICA
INPEACH OBAMA

TO THE WEAK-KNEED REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRAT.....TO ALL THE COMMUNIST IN THE IG,FBI,CIA,AND U.S. Senators and the left wing media outlets////////07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THEN Senator //Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, was asked about his stance on the
American Flag.

General Bill Ginn USAF (ret.) asked //Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171 "...During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, 'Stand and Face It'."

NOW GET THIS!! - - - - -
'Senator' //Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, replied:
"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides".
"There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.."
"The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."
(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)
//Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama, continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments."
“When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".
"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path... My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America "INPEACH OBAMA THE COMMUNIST ,GOD OPEN YOUR EYES.//////For us there are only two possiblities: either we remain american or we come under the thumb of the communist Mmslim Barack Hussein OBAMA. This latter must not occur.the commander
REPOST THIS IF YOU AGREE
......TO ALL THE COMMUNIST IN THE IG,FBI,CIA,AND U.S. Senators and the left wing media outlets ////Mmslim Barack Hussein Obama people have no idea of the extent to which they have to be gulled in order to be led." "The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one." "All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it." "Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise. //////"pelosi don't see much future for the Americans ... it's a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social hate ...obama feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance ... everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it's half LIES, and the other half RACIAL. How can one expect THE USA to hold TOGTHER.They include the angry left wing bloggers who spread vicious lies and half-truths about their political adversaries... Those lies are then repeated by the duplicitous left wing media outlets who “discuss” the nonsense on air as if it has merit� The media's justification is apparently “because it's out there”, truth be damned., GOD OPEN YOUR EYES, Barack Hussein Obama , threatens friends and bows to enemies INPEACH OBAMA THE COMMUNIST ,GOD OPEN YOUR EYES.///For us there are only two possiblities: either we remain american or we come under the thumb of Mmslim Barack Hussein OBAMA. This latter must not occur.the commander,,, INPEACH OBAMA,,= If you do care then Forward this to as many patriotic Americans as you can, because our country is being looted and ransacked!
