Rasmussen uses robocalls, which lonely Republican voters are more likely to play along with.

How else is he going to be removed from office before 2012? If that is not what the OP meant, he needs to clear up his language.
Impeach DUH!

We had to put up with their way of doing things for the past 8 year and where did that get us? the worst economic meltdown in a long time...now all the sudden they want us to believe they have all the answers..that they too have a health care reform..well where the f was that health care reform from 2000 to 2006 when they had total control...why are they now bitching about spending when the last 3 Republican presidents are pretty much responsible for most of our debt..so all the sudden they got the answers for that too... Bush cut taxes for the rich, it was all great...Obama cuts taxes for 95% of Americans..its a wasteful spending..
Delusion with a capital D. I think we need to not rush into thinking that things are starting to turn good for Obama. Unemployment is still through the roof, inflation is a very real possibility, and we still have that pesky government debt that our grandchildren will have to pay for. And I wouldn't call Cash for Clunkers a success. I think we should wait more than 4 days to decide whether it helped the economy or not. And they voted to give it more money because they ran out - will the same happen for the healthcare plan? And as for that being a sure thing - again, you might want to wait and see until after the August break, when politicans return to their home districts and see what most of the voters think of the plan. And lastly, the last president is responsible for more debt in 6 months than the last 3 combined.

I don't want this country to fail, but I don't want the Obama way - redistribution of wealth, mandatory government-run healthcare, government-run private companies, and killing small businesses are NOT the way to run a country.

Why didn't you include this part of the wiki entry:

He has been called “one of America’s most innovative pollsters” by commentator Michael Barone.[citation needed] Rasmussen Reports polls are notable for their use of automated public opinion polling, involving pre-recorded telephone inquiries.[4] These types of polls have been shown[citation needed] to produce accurate results at low cost, although some traditional pollsters are skeptical of this methodology and prefer traditional, operator-assisted polling techniques.[5] Polls by Rasmussen Reports are cited regularly by most major news sources, and as a guest analyst Rasmussen has appeared on a number of news broadcasts, including the Fox News Channel, the BBC, CNN, NPR, and CNBC.
A Fordham University analysis ranked Rasmussen Reports as the most accurate national polling firm in Election 2008.[6]
Reports by Slate Magazine and The Wall Street Journal found that Rasmussen Reports was one of the most accurate polling firms for the 2004 United States presidential election and 2006 United States general elections. [7][8]
Rasmussen Reports conducted the polls featured on the CBS game show Power of 10.
Because the Demopukes will only quote what works for them. America is waking up....that's not good news for the liberals.....

I am seriously not making fun of you and the Obamatrons but it must seriously suck to see your leader completely go against so much of what he campaigned on.

And before you bring up Bush, I did not vote for him.

They don't care, they are blind partisan sheep, little Obamabots. Their pride would never let them admit that have been had. Funny, but real sad too!

In this case I think she's making an unreasonable and faux-naive complaint, though. There *is* a GIGANTIC difference between Bush's forget-em standard and what Obama is trying to work out, which I think everyone can agree is uncharted territory.

"I want to be very clear that our goal is to construct a legitimate legal framework for Guantanamo detainees - not to avoid one. In our constitutional system, prolonged detention should not be the decision of any one man. If and when we determine that the United States must hold individuals to keep them from carrying out an act of war, we will do so within a system that involves judicial and congressional oversight."

He explains exactly and clearly what the dilemma is, and what the Obama DoJ is aiming for in creating a new legal framework to handle a new legal problem.

Do you disagree that this needs to be accomplished?

Who would have thought Rachel would get it so right. Too bad she is more honest than the Obamatrons. Maybe there is hope for her. At this rate she will be on Fox in a year.

Obama is setting the civil rights efforts back 100 years. America never let another black man into office after his impeachment or his term ends.
Thanks a lot America! sarcasm intended.
