In what has been one of the quickest swings in Presidential popularity in the history of poll taking, President Barak Obama according to the latest Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll is now viewed as favorable by only 47%  of likely voters. This has been one of the quickest and most extreme swings in Presidential popularity of a first year President in history.

Barack Obama who’s persona is increasingly being portrayed in the media as that of a silver tongued used car salesman must be shocked by the polling data and wonder why the wheels are coming off of the Barack the great redeemer wagon. The American electorate is clearly not responding positively to Obama’s consistent if vague message that we the government know what is best for you the American public.

The President, who has maintained a continual campaign since his inauguration has proved to be far more liberal then many voters perceived during the 2008 Presidential campaign. As a result of the President promoting the special interests of the environmental and union lobbies,  the public has moved increasingly to the center ,while the Obama administration and the liberal Democrat leadership of the Congress as portrayed by Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House and Harry Reid, theSenate Majority Leader, have been outed for their commitment to a progressive agenda that would increase the concentration of power in the federal government while diminishing individual choices and freedoms.

Barack Obama who has been a subject of progressive doctrinaire throughout his academic and political life is a true believer in the progressive cause and has filled his administration with loyal subjects. The public, which of late has been demeaned and is always underestimated by liberal and progressive elitists that include Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have awakened in the past few months to an America that progressing along a path never foreseen by the founding fathers. It should be of no surprise to most in the political arena that a back lash would develop against the President’s policies given that over time the majority of Americans find comfort in the center as opposed to the extremes of the left or the right.

Obama the campaigner is wearing thin on Americans tolerance who have become impatient with Obama’s failure to embrace principles of governing that contribute to the safety and security of America. They ask who is governing the nation id the President is coosistently and aggressively campaigning. The answer of course id in the swpecial interests that funded and promoted Barack Obama as a vessel of hope and change.

The hope in America today is that Congress will listen to their constituency, the American public and not allow this President to continue to guide this nation away from the founding principles and values that have been the foundation for this great nation . The hope in America today is that Congress will not enact the progressive legislation that this President is promoting but that courage and common sense will prevail and America will survive this Administration’s attempts at concentrating power and creating a progressive or socialist state.

Americans must continue to stand up and speak out for their individual rights. They must ignore the platitudes of the left and do what is right. They must take ownership of this nation and not bequeath their future to a progressive and misguided few.

It is a great irony that Barack Obama, who is a true believer in his ability to guide and direct the American people to the progressive promise land of his vision is seeing his vision and agenda for America derailed by the very people he is dedicated to helping whether or not they are aware of their need for his help. 

One of the great pillars of the progressive fascism is that the progressives know what the American public need and those who would oppose such help are perceived as imbecilic in the minds of the progressive stalwarts and their supreme leader Barack Obama. The President who ran on a campaign platform of hope and change has resorted to extreme partisan politics as he attempts to divert the debate away from health care reform which is rapidly losing support among the public, to a debate about the publics’ right to debate.

The Obama administration, in what appears to be nothing less than Orwellian, is asking Americans to spy on each other  by monitoring the media, including the Internet, to alert the White House to any postings or reporting on the President’s effort to enact health care reform,  that may be perceived as “fishy” . This is clearly a request of historic proportion and illuminates the agenda of the Obama administration and the fear that exists within the oval office that the public is unwilling to accept what they so desperately need the leadership of Barack Obama.

Obama and his handlers have developed a propaganda organization that exceeds anything America has ever seen and in fact rivals the best efforts of Germany in the 1930’s. However, the American public is becoming increasingly aware of the misrepresentations of the Obama administration and their passion for control over the social, cultural and economic fabric of our nation. This latest action by the White House in which they are accusing attendees at various Congressional town hall meetings around the country of being shills for the Republican Party is reflective of the elitism indigenous to the Obama administration.

President Obama believes he was elected with a mandate to lead the American public through a political transformation that would result in an America that in time will more fully resemble a European socialist state. It should have come as no surprise to the electorate that Obama and his progressive cult of admirers would accelerate the nation along the path of socialism. However, as the fog of the spell that was cast upon America by the Liberal media who overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama begins to clear,  America has awakened to the fact that Obama and his policies will destroy the best that remains of America.

America is turning its back on Barack Obama and a Democratic controlled Congress that replete with progressive talking points has failed to respect the ability of the public to recognize a shill when they see one.

The American public is awakening to the health care reform scam that Barack Obama and a subservient Democratic Congress are attempting to impose on a nation that does not want the change Barack Obama and his elitist progressive administration are determined to enact.

The public is speaking out across the country and saying no to Obamacare and serving notice to Congress that its members will be held accountable for the decisions they have made to date as well as in the future. Members of Congress are continually campaigning and with the  2010 elections only fifteen months away those with an eye on reelection will be listening to their constituents during the August recess. 

 The voices they hear will unnerve them. The American public in what happens once in a generation, if at all ,wants to be included in the decision process that takes place in Washington. Their voices will be heard at gatherings all across the land. They want entry into the elitist halls of government where special interest groups have placed a stranglehold on Congress and the Administration to further a progressive agenda that will bankrupt our nation’s spirit as well as our economy. In their zeal to transform this nation from an economy based on  free enterprise, broad individual freedoms and a limited role for government to a socialist nation, that will limit individual freedoms and expand the reach of government into every aspect of our lives.

Barack Obama has been slipping in the polls the past several weeks as Americans become disenchanted with his policies. As his favorability rating weakens in the polls it has provided an inverse reaction on Wall Street. As CEO4ADAY predicted in a blog on July 14th, Obama’s decline in the polls would ignite a rally on Wall Street as investors gained confidence that this, the most radical President to inhabit the White House, will fail in his quest to transform America into a Eurotopian socialist state.

The traditions of America consistently flow from the center. When the nation swings too far to the right or the left in an attempt to right an imbalance it eventually finds its way to the center or right of center. The cultural fabric of America has under gone vast changes over the past 233 years since the original 13 colonies declared their independence from the oppression and tyranny of a government that existed to be served by the people rather than a servant of the people.

Though our cultural fabric has changed through the years, the ideal that is  America as the benchmark for freedom, opportunity and a bulwark of  individualism has inspired the dreams of people through out the world. The administration of Barack Obama has a vision for a new America. An America that does not stand apart as a beacon of freedom in the world or a model of  free enterprise but rather exists to serve as a model for the world of a nation that views the quest for moderation as the American dream.  An America in which individual choices and freedoms are secondary to the greater will of the people as determined by an elite political class in Washington.

Americans are rejecting the vision of America offered by Barack Obama and promoted in Congress by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  They are again speaking out for individual freedoms. The voices of Americans through out the land have been uncorked and will not return to an easy quiet until the center is firm.

A relatively minor program captured the headlines over this past week end and promises to continue to arouse partisan political passion through this week until the final disposition of the ” cash for clunkers ” program is determined.  The White House is very much in favor of continuing the program which has burned through the initial one billion dollars that was allocated to the automobile purchasing stimulus.

The program provides for a $4,500. trade in on older automobiles. The program was so well received by consumers that the program quickly ran out of money. Last week the House quickly approved an additional two billion dollars for the program and the Senate is debating the issue this week prior to the beginning of the August recess.

With an economy in recession and the majority of voters  deciding  that the stimulus plan provided by Barack Obama under the guise of  the American Recovery Act has been a dismal failure,  it is no wonder that the White House is promoting the “success” of “cash for clunkers”. It is most likely the Senate will pass an appropriation to continue this program since the auto industry is a Government preferred industry as demonstrated by the bail outs provided by both the Bush and Obama administrations.

Ceo4aday believes that programs that stimulate the purchase of durable goods are welcome and truly provide a stimulus to the economy but do not believe they should be discriminatory. We have long advocated a program that is not discriminatory that would put dollars in the hands of consumers through a federal voucher with an expiration date that would expire within a specific period of time. The program  would consist of a spend it or lose it clause and the monies distributed to tax payers should be allocated on a proportionate basis per actual taxes paid.

Funds from the American Recovery Act could be reallocated from their current entitlement and union subsidization program to fund real stimulus. Under this plan all tax payers would receive in effect a rebate on prior taxes paid which would provide an economic stimulus across all sectors of the economy as opposed to being sector specific like “cash for clunkers”. It would also be class inclusive as opposed to previous attempts at consumer stimulus that omit those at the top rungs of the economy.

We recognize that the likelihood of reallocating funds from the American Recovery Act and converting them to real stimulus dollars is unlikely. The Obama administration and the members of Congress that rushed through this partisan $787 Billion bill during the first weeks of the new progressive administration would be reluctant to alter its current structure in any way that would divert funds away from the numerous liberal programs that were included in the bill to satisfy the various special interest groups of the left.

According to the Rasmussen Daily tracking Poll, for the first time since Barack Obama assumed the Office of the President, more Americans that are likely voters disapprove  than currently approve of the President’s performance.

The president has been in a campaign mode since his inauguration, as he rushed a stimulus bill through Congress, that is increasingly perceived as reckless legislation, continues to promote a cap and trade tax and is attempting to burden Americans with a government controlled health care plan.

In addition, he has taken the campaign Global as he completed apology tours through out Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Most recently he has created a political controversy by wading into the deep waters of racial politics by weighing in on the arrest of his ‘friend” Skip Gates a Harvard Professor by a Cambridge Police Sergeant. Gates decided that the officer was being racist and Obama referred to the actions by the Cambridge police as “stupidly”.

The public  have been inundated with Obama in the  media and may now be withdrawing from the Obama euphoria created by the media as they hold the President accountable for governing as opposed to campaigning. This President’s lack of experience did not serve as an editor over his ego and as such Obama launchedan aggressive progressive agenda with a blitz on Congress and the electorate not seen since the Battle of Britain. The blitz has failed and the polls are reflecting the desire by the public for the President to veeraway from his progressive agenda and his path to socialism. As has been the historical tendency in this nation Americans expect the President to move toward the center and govern accordingly.

Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader announced this week that the Senate would delay any action on a health care reform bill until after the August Congressional recess. The delay in Senate action has been caused by an inability to develop an acceptable compromise between liberal Democrats, willing to agree to any bill promoted by the Obama administration and moderate Democrats and Republicans who are unwilling to agree to a government take over of health care that will increase the federal deficit, lessen the quality of health care and increase the burden on American tax payers.

Delaying the process in the Senate will most likely cause a delay in the House which following the August recess may lead to the ultimate death of health care reform as elected officials hear an increasing roar from a public that has become disenchanted with the idea of placing their health care in the hands of an administration that is increasingly being perceived as being less than forthcoming with the real costs of health care reform as well as the quality of service to expect from a government mandated program.

Barack Obama is keen on stating that he is enacting the change that Americans want. He is correct that Americans voted for change when they elected him President last November but the change that this President has brought to date and the changes he continues to propose are reflective of a classic political bait and switch. President Barack Obama has failed to deliver on the promise of candidate Barack Obama. This should hardly come as a surprise given the President’s thin resume of leadership. Other than his campaign Obama had never had any management experience.

Six months into office and obama’s inexperience weighs like a wet blanket upon an economy that is struggling to heat up. His self promoted and much touted stimulus plan, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan of 2009, has proved to be the debacle that opponents of the bill had opined that it would be when the partisan bill was rushed through Congress with out being read and was subsequently signed by the President who had promoted the bill as a job savings and creation bill. The President’s pronouncements on the bill have under gone some ‘recalibration’ as the President and his administration now refer to the stimulus as having a longer term arc than would be expected with the urgent passage of a stimulus bill.

In retrospect the Obama administration will have proved to have miscalculated American’s tolerance for the political sleight of hand that is the stimulus package. The proposed take over of the Health Care industry by Obama in addition to the energy and safe climate act that narrowly passed the House is making Americans uncomfortable and testing their patience with this administration during a period of rising unemployment and a challenged economy.

The majority of the nation are expecting the President to adjust his priorities and focus on the economy rather than attempting to save the earth through the building of windmills and saddling the nation with an ill conceived health care program.

Barack Obama has placed himself in the midst of a dialogue on on race relations between the Black community and law enforcement due to comments he made on Wednesday evening during a nationally televised press conference. The President was commenting on the arrest of  Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. an African American by a white police officer Sergeant James Crowley from the Cambridge Police Department. Sergeant Crowley arrested  Professor Gates for disorderly conduct in front of Gates home in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Gates claimed he had been subject to racial profiling.

President Obama addressed the issue toward the end of his press conference which, with this single exception, was staged to address his demand for health care reform. During the press conference he attempted to reset the agenda by calling for health insurance as opposed to health care reform. When questioned about the incident in Cambridge, in pure professorial mode Obama chose to take the opportunity to speak about racial profiling and commented that the arrested of his friend “Skip” Gates was an act of stupidity on the part of the Cambridge police department.

Subsequently law enforcement associations around the nation have taken humbrage with President Obama’s remarks and many have officers have come to the support of Seargant Crowley. Obama has now spoken with eah man and for all intent has apologised to the Cambridge police officer.

The President made a rookie mistake by injecting himself into this incident. However, this is a President who has attempted to be omnipresent by injecting himself into Americans lives several times a day with his fondness for the communications media. He also considers himself to be the Professor in Chief who is always willing to endow his wisdom upon an eager audience.

The President suffers from a lack of leadership experience as evidenced by his intrusion into a local issue when he is in the midst of an economic crisis and two wars. An experienced leader understands the impact of his comments. By commenting on the Cambridge issue Obama has again served notice that his goal is to be the solutions provider in chief as opposed to governing. Obama and his administration need to reset their agenda to focus on the economy and the President should begin to limit his desire for starring in a reality show based in the White House.
