Poll: 76 Percent Favor ‘Cutting Government Spending Across the Board’

From The Weekly Standard:

A new poll conducted by Politico/GWU/Battleground finds that 76 percent of Americans favor “Cutting government spending across the board.”

Fifty-nine percent of Americans registered to vote strongly favor the “across the board” cuts and 17 percent “somewhat” favor the cuts. Only 13 percent strongly oppose “across the board” spending cuts, and 10 percent “somewhat” oppose the cuts. Two percent are unsure.

Ladies and gentlemen, imagine that.  76% of Americans actually want a smaller government.

But wait.  Stop right there.

That’s what those people may express in polls.

But that’s not how they voted.




Tuesday: a traveling day for BZ

Today — as incongruent as it may seem — my wife and I are traveling from the Mendocino coast back to my aerie in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Because I will be occupied by driving, I won’t be able to blog about the election today, until perhaps much later after I get home.

In the meantime, I have but this to submit:

A photo from a point somewhere within my general mountain locale.

Couldn’t quite tell you where this may be.  Ahem.

But it certainly represents my true feelings today, Obama Removal Day.




Obama Ends Campaign in Half-Empty Arena

From Breitbart.com:

President Obama’s big rally tonight (Monday night – BZ) turned out to be just like his first, opening salvo of the 2012 campaign: a half-empty arena in Ohio. According to RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy, there were “empty seats scattered around the upper-level of Nationwide Arena … Four years ago, after all, Obama was easily filling venues larger than that …” The event even featured Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z, and Obama still couldn’t fill it out.

This photograph immediately comes to my mind:

Ladies and gentlemen, think of it, the ramifications of it all:

– Even with the White House Bully Pulpit
– Even with the Demorats controlling the Senate
– Even with the might of the entire DEM/MSM behind him
– Even with the sound of his voice on TV and radio literally every day
– Even with the guilt of Caucasoids nationally

Mr Obama is still not walking away with the race.

Against Mitt Romney, for God’s sake!

Tomorrow: there’s a surprise in every package.
