Hillary’s poll numbers up: Rise, Hillary, Rise

Yay

Politico:

A new poll of avid news watchers shows that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a much higher approval rating than the man she once campaigned against and now works for, President Barack Obama.

In the poll of 800 registered voters who are self-identified “news watchers,” Clinton had a 75 percent approval rating and a 21 percent disapproval rating overall. Obama, in contrast, had a 51 percent approval and a 45 percent disapproval rating….

Clarus president Ron Faucheux said one reason for Clinton’s high poll numbers is her high approval among Republicans – numbers he said position her well to run for president again in the future, if she chooses.

Clinton had 96 percent approval among Democrats, a healthy 57 percent approval among Republicans, and 65 percent approval among Independents. Obama was nearly as popular among Democrats – 93 percent – but his numbers among Republicans and Independents fell off dramatically, at 19 percent and 33 percent respectively.

…“Republicans may see her as being more hawkish than other Democrats on foreign policy issues,” said Faucheux. “It may be a way for them to bolster that position within the administration.” Asked about any future Clinton presidential bid, he said, “She’s in good shape now.”….

Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,

We are at a critical point in our fight against government run healthcare.

We need to have the same urgency and intensity level that we displayed at the Congressional Town Hall Meetings during the August recess. We must not diminish our fight to defeat the Senate healthcare bill. Many “Blue Dog” Democrats and some GOP Senators have stated that they don’t see the same intensity level opposing the Senate Healthcare bill that we displayed opposing the House version. They are beginning to believe that we do not strongly oppose the Senate Healthcare bill.  We need to let them know that is not true.

President Obama and the Senate Democratic leadership are pulling out all the stops to pass this Senate Healthcare bill. They are putting enormous pressure on the “Blue Dog” Democrat Senators to pass the bill.

We urgently need you to make phones today and tomorrow  to the Senators listed below. Please call their District Office and their D.C. office. Also, please continue to contact your Senator. Forward this to your email lists and ask them to make phone calls.

The latest Rasmussen Poll showed that 60% oppose this healthcare bill.

We need you to make phones calls to the Senators listed below.

Targeted Senators


Sen. Ben Nelson, Nebraska
DC Office Number: 202-224-6551, DC Fax Number: 202-228-0012

Sen. Jim Webb, Virginia

Jane Hamsher of FDL agrees with Michelle Bachmann: Kill the health care bill

Update: More consensus, FDL commenter acknowledges we dreaded Tea People were correct:

This bill is worse than the status quo; it is an abomination. (Again I cannot easily express my disgust that the teabagger crackpots who called it an “Obamanation” apparently knew something that we did not.) $1000000000s to insurance companies courtesy of this smooth talking empty suited liar from Chicago.

KILL THIS TRAVEST OF A PAYOUT TO INSURANCE COMPANIES ***NOW***

Obama has finally achieved the Post Partisan Unity Schtick: Jane Hamsher FDL Progressives, Howard Dean, Michelle Bachmann R-MN, Laura Ingraham are all united in their desire to KILL THE BILL.

Sadly Obama will take the ‘no one is happy, everyone is pixxed’ as a good sign. He calls it being pragmatic. I call it having NO BALLS.

Some Dems and ‘progressives’ are still debating whether to ‘fight the bill’. They are fish food. The entire point of this exercise was to TRIANGULATE the progressives and the moderates, and in the end give exactly what they always intended to, a BS bill that is a gift to insurers and a world of hurt to consumers and the dream of UHC.

The playing out the poor progressives who still ‘wait’ to decide is classic THE LONG CON. By the time these guys ‘decide’ the ink will be dry on Obama’s commemorative signature.

Obama is a man of NO CONVICTIONS. The Obots who called HRC Lady Macbeth need to acknowledge that Lady Macbeth had a frakking plan and a list and she did what she set out to do, she didn’t cave to Macduff at the first sign of pushback now did she? I WANT A POTUS WITH COJONES!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Has it ocurred to the genius progressives that Obama doesn’t care if he loses seats in the House? It will make it easier to TRIANGULATE.
