No, it's not Fox News saying this...but See BS News.
Last week, President Obama signed historic health care reform legislation into law -- but his legislative success doesn't seem to have helped his image with the American public.
The latest CBS News Poll, conducted between March 29 and April 1, found Americans unhappier than ever with Mr. Obama's handling of health care - and still worried about the state of the economy.
President Obama's overall job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 44 percent, down five points from late March, just before the health bill's passage in the House of Representatives. It's down 24 points since his all-time high last April. Forty-one percent of those polled said they disapproved of the president's performance.
Anthony G. Martin writes in The Examiner:
In one interview, Obama referred to the Tea Party core group as a bunch of 'birthers' who do not believe he is eligible for public office. In another, he claimed that the rhetoric used by his critics, even Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and others is 'inciting certain persons to violence.'
And in yet another interview he decreed that all of his critics should 'tone it down.'
Translation--sit down and shut up.
The problem with a politician like Barack Obama is that he is much too thin-skinned to be in public office. Politicians who exhibit such extreme reactions to criticism tend to share one common characteristic--they cannot handle those who disagree with them. ... The danger is that such thin-skinned sensitivity can lead to massive suppression of free speech, such as Obama has attempted to do underhandedly by his appointments of radicals to his administration--individuals such as Mark Loyd at the FCC and Van Jones.
Interestingly, one of the media outlets that has consistently taken a cheerleading stance for Obama and his agenda is CBS News. But CBS News found in its own poll, published today, that the more Obama attacks and the more he campaigns for his ObamaCare bill, the more he tanks in the polls.
Along with stating that "Never in my life have I seen a regime like this, governing against the will of the people, purposely. I have never seen the media so supportive of a regime amassing so much power. And I have never known as many people who literally fear for the future of the country," Rush Limbaugh said:
One of my theories about President Obama is that he has been filled with anger from day one, that he has a chip on his shoulder about something. It's laugh-out-loud funny to hear him pretend to be concerned about dissent from the people he has insulted, people he has provoked and ridiculed and run over. A domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, is one of his best buddies. Jeremiah Wright was one of the most important people in his life, as was Frank Marshall Davis, an avowed communist who raised him. Barack Obama always honors the infamous Jewish hater, Louis Farrakhan with the title "minister." This guy's worried about truthful, informed political speech? Of course he is, because all radical leftists have to shut up and shut down anybody who stands in their way. They clear the field. They don't look at leveling the field. They clear it. And now they have the State-Controlled Media to help 'em out.
Look at the language toward Republicans that his own party uses. Look at the false claims of racism at the tea party people on Sunday, the date the health care bill was signed. They faked an incident. They were trying to provoke an incident. There's no reason to walk above ground to get to the Capitol building from their offices. There are tunnels underneath with trains, subways and so forth. The Congressional Black Caucus and Pelosi walking over there with a big gavel trying to provoke an incident. When an incident didn't happen, they made it up. The media reported the incident without one shred of evidence. There still is no evidence that anybody shouted the N-word to anybody. There was video being taken by hundreds of people of these incidents. Not one of those videos shows the incident to have occurred. These are the kind of tactics that Barack Obama inspires. In Philadelphia during the campaign Barack Obama: "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun." Is that vitriol? Barack Obama, Jim Messina, deputy chief of staff: "If you get hit, we're going to punch back twice as hard." Barack Obama: "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." This he said to top Republican leaders whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his failed $1 trillion Porkulus bill.
In San Francisco, Barack Obama: "You go into these small towns of Pennsylvania like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them and they fell through the Clinton administration and the Bush administration, each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising, then, that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustration." Is that vitriol? Barack Obama daily insults the American people. There's no question. Barack Obama: "I do think everybody has a responsibility, Democrats and Republicans, to tone down some of this rhetoric, some of these comments." He needs to start with himself. He needs to start with Reverend Wright. He needs to start with any number of his party members.
And the media, as I say, I always thought the media was supposed to be suspicious of power. I've never seen a media like this so supportive of a regime amassing such power. They're almost giddy about it. But the American people are not a bunch of extremists. The American people are not a bunch of freaks. They're not bitter clingers, and they're not overly anxious about the economy and the country. They are overly anxious about Obama's agenda. They are scared to death of Obama's agenda. They do not understand how it is that a man was elected like Obama who willingly, purposely governs against the will of the people, oversees the destruction of the private sector where their jobs and the future jobs of their children and grandchildren were supposed to be.
I agree with Rush and Martin. Obama is a bitter, angry person who has had a chip on his shoulder from his father and (in many ways) mother abandoning him. As a result, he fell in with people like his Communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis and he said in his book (Dreams of my Father) that he'd hung out with Marxists and radicals in college. Those type of people love to find people like Obama--people riddled with anger--and then mold them for the Cause.
I didn't hear people saying "tone it down" during the Bush Years, with all the assassination plays, movies, books and signs you saw at these rallies. The media never played it up, unlike the smears McClatchy News Service, the rest of the lapdog media, and the Chicken Little's like Mark Potok at the Southern Poverty Law Center are doing with Tea Party members. Straight out of Saul Alinsky.Tone this down, Mr. President!
So, speaking for myself, as long as I have a keyboard, I'm not toning it down, Barack Obama! I'm not going to place nice and shut up while you tear down what so many before us have sacrificed, so future generations can enjoy the blessings of freedom.
Tone it down? Not a chance!
