Poll Shows Few Americans Believed Obama Mistatement of the Union Speech

The Obama deficit of trust in a nutshell:

Deficit of Trust: Most Voters Don’t Believe President’s Assertions About Economy
Saturday, January 30, 2010

During his State-of-the-Union address Wednesday night, President Obama spoke about a deficit of trust between the American people and political leaders. New Rasmussen Reports polling on the president’s speech shows just how deep that trust deficit has become.

The president in the speech declared that his administration has cut taxes for 95% of Americans. He even chided Republicans for not applauding on that point. However, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that taxes have been cut for 95% of Americans. Most (53%) say it has not happened, and 26% are not sure. Other polling shows that nearly half the nation’s voters expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years.

The president also asserted that “after two years of recession, the economy is growing again.” Just 35% of voters believe that statement is true, while 50% say it is false.

Obama claimed that steps taken by his team are responsible for putting two million people to work “who would otherwise be unemployed.” Just 27% of voters say that statement is true. Fifty-one percent (51%) say it’s false.

Obama is now pimping his “jobs bill” with the same type of lies he earlier pimped his stimulus.  That said:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 30% of voters nationwide believe the $787-billion economic stimulus plan has helped the economy. However, 38% believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy. This is the first time since the legislation passed that a plurality has held a negative view of its impact.

The number who believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy rose from 28% in September, to 31% in October, and 34% in November before jumping to 38% this month. The week after the president signed the bill, 34% said it would help the economy, while 32% said it would hurt.

The Political Class has a much different view than the rest of the county. Ninety percent (90%) of the Political Class believes the stimulus plan helped the economy and not a single Political Class respondent says it has hurt. (See more on the Political Class).

Kind of interesting.  I watched CNN and NBC after the speech, and I got the idea that Obama must have walked on water.

The political class wants more government and fewer liberties for citizens 100% of the time.

There’s an old adage: fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

Don’t be ashamed that you were stupid.  Get it right now, and start being part of the solution.

It’s time for some hope and change regarding Obama.  Let’s hope that more Americans change their view of Obama and see him for the lying fraud he is.

    “There’s an old adage: fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.”

    Isn’t that the adage George W. Bush screwed up?

    “Don’t be ashamed that you were stupid. Get it right now, and start being part of the solution.”

    Thanks for the explanation. You sound like W.

    Instead of advising people to “start thinking right,” why don’t you just start thinking?

    Bush may have screwed up an adage. But without his teleprompter your lord and master Obama screwed up about 15 paragraphs of bumbling like an incoherent fool. And that’s when he wasn’t screwing up on how many states the country has.

    You sneering moral idiots who incessantly portray conservatives as stupid remind me of Homer Simpson – another guy who thought everyone else was stupid without realizing that HE was the biggest moron who ever walked the earth.

    Let’s see: your “argument” goes from the fact that George Bush misquoted an adage once to asserting that “I sound like Bush.” And therefore you brilliantly conclude that I’m not thinking. And you actually think you’re somehow clever!!!

    It’s the trivial argument of a trivial fool. And just like your ilk always seem to do, you utterly miss the actual point of the story (the fact that most Americans don’t believe Obama’s lies) to instead fixate on an ad hominem.

    Get lost.

    You are an angry fool

    Is that seriously the smartest thing you can say?

    I mock the pathologically stupid who log on to a serious article reporting serious facts and all they can do is throw out a drive-by ad hominem.
