Comments on: Exclusive: Small business backs Obama, not Democrats: poll Grow your own Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:32:24 +0000 hourly 1 By: MrFlippy Wed, 28 Sep 2011 20:36:40 +0000 90% of the small businesses contacted , which was 9 out of 10 selected from the DNC contributors list said they support Obama after being contacted by South Side Louie the 10th was on vacation…

By: borisjimbo Wed, 21 Sep 2011 01:51:32 +0000 I would submit that if given the alternative small business would back Obama and a Congress Democratic enough to make the GOP and their reflexive obstructionism a non-issue. How about putting that up in your next poll?

By: Sensibility Wed, 21 Sep 2011 01:20:38 +0000 Is this a surprise to anyone? Polls done in 2010 showed over 80 percent of voters would, if they could, vote out the entire U.S. Congress in one shot. And seeing how our politicians in both parties behave, why wouldn’t they?

By: ramsglen Wed, 21 Sep 2011 01:01:34 +0000 When I hear these people complaining about the Republican’s saying “NO” it makes me think of a brat punching a needle in his/hers arm and the mother and father screaming for them to stop. Of course they believe someone else will pay this debt as well as take care of there drug problems. Borrowing money is like taking crack. Just can’t get enough of it. Just ask Obama.
“OMG” Obama Must Go.

By: ARJTurgot2 Wed, 21 Sep 2011 00:05:14 +0000 Pretty much confirms what I thought – I don’t like Obama, and haven’t liked the Dems for a very long time, but I will not vote for any of the bunch the GOP has offered up for 2012, and no, Sarah Palin will not qualify as an alternative.

By: TexasBill Tue, 20 Sep 2011 22:48:21 +0000 What the poll shows is not so much who’s ahead in the horse race; they’re all trying to catch up with “None of the Candidates.” tgtnft’s interesting take on statistics and mathematics, notwithstanding, Republicans are preferred by two percentage points: not enough of a difference to be a slam dunk.

What the poll shows is that small business is not concerned about the deficit nearly as much as it is concerned with unemployment and job creation. This should be self-evident to anyone with the brains the Lord promised a duck. More jobs means more customers; more customers means more business; more business means more profits and more jobs that can be created in turn.

Main Street isn’t concerned about the deficit, Social Security or ObamaCare. Main Street is hungry and worried: it carers far more about jobs and paychecks happening immediately and that’s where both parties have failed America.

Perhaps Obama got wind of Andrew Breitbart’s affiliation with “major named people in the US military” who “have his back” if things don’t go the Repubicans way or if any “union liberals cross the line”.

We don’t need anything more than the standing president to be supported by Americans and for cretins like Breitbart and the Fox News crowd to be drowned out by the voices of the majority of Americans who still hold to their sense of reason.

And if you ever were a supporter of Obama as you claim, what is your alternative? Vote for Rick Perry? Somehow I doubt it.

By: Spincabby Tue, 20 Sep 2011 21:29:58 +0000 The more the Republicans say “NO”, the more common folks understand who they really represent, the rich. Let me break something down for everyone who thinks that we have a bunch of free loading non tax paying lefties:

Rich people believe that 50% of our country doesn’t pay taxes…
1) The poor have no savings, everything they earn is spent, so they pay 8-9% sales tax on 100% of their earnings.
2) If you make more than is required for basic living, then you save (401k -not taxed if maturity is reached)
3) In the end we all pay taxes, so there are no free loaders.
4) I make good money, my company pays my health insurance, I have a HSA – health savings account (not taxed), I have a 401k(not taxed), and I don’t spend 100% of my earnings for basic food and shelter. Therefore, I pay less overall taxes than someone who makes less than 50K.

And if I hear the word “Job Creators” again instead of “The Wealthy”, I will never vote Republican, and I have voted for every sitting President since Reagan. The shell game has to stop and we all have to dig out of this. While we are at it, let’s refinance all ARM’s to Fixed APR’s using money we have already given to banks.

By: xyz2055 Tue, 20 Sep 2011 21:04:06 +0000 At least Obama is trying. The party of NO’s only solution is to give the richest American’s and Corporations more tax breaks. A failed philosophy. The Republicans are in for a shock in 2012.

By: AdamSmith Tue, 20 Sep 2011 20:39:45 +0000 I read Obama’s 2 books, Dreams of My Father and The Audacity of Hope, and voted for Obama. But never again will I vote for him.

He’s just not a fighter.

For a president, we need a fighter. Like Theodore Roosevelt, or Franklin Roosevelt, or Harry Truman, or Abraham Lincoln.

Harry Truman almost had a revolt in the Senate in 1951 when he fired General Douglas MacArthur, whose stature and power far surpassed any military man alive today. Obama is far too timid to confront the military in any significant way.

Obama wants too badly for everybody to like him. He’s a great guy, to be admired in many ways, but he’s not the kind of person to be a president.

We need a good man, but not Obama.
