Anti-incumbent year? Sure…if you’re a Democrat incumbent!

The talking points from the left are that there is an anti-incumbent sentiment, not an anti-Democrat or anti-Obama/Pelosi/Reid sentiment, that is making November shape up to be a rough one for Dems.  While there is a small morsel of truth in that statement (see Bob Bennett’s defeat in the UT GOP Senate primary), by and large, it’s a crock.  The sentiment is definitely, without a doubt, largely anti-Democrat.  Poll after poll shows massive unpopularity with the Dems, especially among independents.

This, though, is particularly damning:

To gauge what voters are thinking in House districts where surveys show the races will likely be tight in November and a switch in party control is possible, Democratic firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and Republican firm Public Opinion Strategies conducted a poll of 1,200 “likely” voters in 60 battleground districts that elected Democrats in 2008 (one of the seats is vacant) and 10 districts now represented by Republicans. The full poll, including the list of battleground districts, is here.

So much for the “it’s not the left’s agenda, it’s just the state of the economy, etc.” meme.

Right-wing nutjobs pan Obama’s oil spill speech

And by “right-wing nutjobs”, I’m referring to…Chris “Leg Tingle” Matthews, Keith “I Love Both of My Viewers” Olbermann, and Howard “Not So” Fineman!  Dude, did I fall asleep and wake up in Oppositeworld?  Video at RCP, which must be seen to be believed.  Select quotes:

Matthews: “Is there a specific direction we’re going in? He didn’t even tell us.”

Olbermann: “It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days!”

Howard Fineman: “He wasn’t specific enough.”

Matthews: Ludicrous that he keeps saying [Secretary of Energy] Chu has a Nobel prize. “I’ll barf if he does it one more time.”

Matthews: “I don’t sense executive command.”

Tingles even compared Sir Golfsalot to Carter.  For those of you on the left, that is not a good thing.

When President Kick#ss’s slobbering sycophants at MSNBC start questioning his leadership abilities, then you know the dude has officially jumped the shark.

Heh: Dem poll shows more Louisianans approved of Bush’s handling of Katrina than Obama’s handling of oil spill!


Our new Louisiana poll has a lot of data points to show how unhappy voters in the state are with Barack Obama’s handling of the oil spill but one perhaps sums it up better than anything else- a majority of voters there think George W. Bush did a better job with Katrina than Obama’s done dealing with the spill.

50% of voters in the state, even including 31% of Democrats, give Bush higher marks on that question compared to 35% who pick Obama.

Overall only 32% of Louisianans approve of how Obama has handled the spill to 62% who disapprove. 34% of those polled say they approved of how Bush dealt with Katrina to 58% who disapproved.

Exit question: Will President Kick#ss’s speech change this perception?
