Some stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 26% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 35% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –9.
  • Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Barack Obama’s performance and 50% disapprove. Since Osama Bin Laden’s death, Obama’s numbers have improved, though only an amount nearly not worth mentioning. This nation’s interpretation of its president remains almost equally divided.
  • Regarding Obama’s budget proposal, 30% of American voters favor it and 50% oppose it.
  • Dropping slightly, 47% of American voters favor repeal of Health Care Law.
  • Only 25% of American voters believe America is heading in the right direction.
Gas prices are through the roof, jobless claims are at an eight-month high, polarized budget battles are being waged with no end in sight, and our president has the audacity to discuss a tax on how many miles you drive each day. This is part of the administration’s Transportation Opportunities Act. Where do they come up with these names? “Opportunity”? For who? That makes as much sense as limiting conservative talk radio with a “fairness” doctrine. It’s not fair; it’s censorship.

Who discusses a tax per mile driven at a time like this? It is insult to injury! Nearly half of the people in this nation do not even make enough money to have to pay federal income taxes. While they certainly sit on the receiving end of others who do pay income taxes, I don’t think this would settle well for them, either, or anybody else.

1,355.5 miles to go.
