    Last week CNN famously released a poll showing 66% in favor of the Obama Plan for the debt limit increase, 33% opposed to the Obama Plan for the debt limit increase, and 1% with no opinion. In the same poll, however, 66% were in favor of the GOP Plan for the debt limit increae, 33% opposed the GOP Plan for the debt limit increae, and 1% with no opinion.

    Over the weekend, I myself was somehow bodysurfing with a Sea Lion off to my left at Venice Beach, in CA, Unless it was an Otter.

    Regardless: I myself was back on the beach with the understanding certain that whatever it was knew more than I did about what was in there, at the time. The water is pristine clear in the Santa Monica Bay this summer. The fish have noticed. The Sea Gulls still attack the unattended potato chip bags on the beach! The critter surfaced about 30 yards away, not to be seen again. . . .apparently(?)!

    None of the above are likely the same animal.

    So now CNN has as follows:

    "Fifty-two percent of Americans think Obama has acted responsibly in the debt ceiling talks so far, but nearly two-thirds say the Republicans in Congress have not acted responsibly. Fifty-one percent would blame the GOP if the debt ceiling is not raised; only three in 10 would blame Obama."

    Apparently the "not the same animal" concept even works in real life(?)!

    The house already voted to extend the debt limit. The senate voted it down. Relying on the accuracy of a CNN poll is the equivalency of an accurate Fox poll. They're both worthless.

    Yup. If people watched what is going on then they would see who's holding things up.

    The Dems want to raise taxes. I'm sure the economy would take off like a rocket.

    The GOP wants to make cuts and not raise taxes.

    Wonder which would help the economy more???

    Again, how is this all possible when Obama hasn't even submitted a plan?

    Actually, the House has sent up the bogus plan twice--last week and today. Then the Senate comes up with a plan--McConnel-Reid, or Senate Democratic Party Leader Reid, alone.

    The White House is the Executive Branch. The House and the Senate are the Legislative Branch. That is where votes are taken, on bills introduced. The White House neither votes, nor introduces bills: Except that it is a part of the governing majority of central government.

    The Speaker of the House claims that only 87 members of the House of Representative are the governing majority of the entire federal government.

    The regular House GOP is more likely ready to start to drift away from Boehner-Cantor-of only-the-87.

    Boehner and Cantor don't like their GOP rank-and-file. Boehner and Cantor only like the 87, and none of their others.

    "Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., said his office is getting calls from constituents saying, "'If I don't get my Social Security check, it's your fault.'" (Press Report)

    There is no Rep. Barack Obama, getting the same calls at the federal House of Representatives There is no Senator Barack Obama getting the calls. . .at the federal U. S. Senate.

    (Many Nations say now Kenya in drought, like Somalia. GOP say only Texas is in drought, and now not eligible for federal assistance, especially any bail-outs. Bush probably caused that--probably according to Boehner-Cantor-And-The-87! GOP easily blames Bush! McCain-Palin called Bush economy, even "strong(?)! McCain-Palin lied. Texas now gets punished, where Bush is located! Extreme Right-Wing in Norway, probably thinks so too!)

    This just shows you the cluelessness of the average American.
    How could someone approve of the way Obama has handled our debt when all he has done is increase ever since the minute he walked into the Oval office?
    Also, Obama prior to all this debt ceiling talk began - asked for the debt ceiling to be raised to $16 trillion - WITH ZERO CUTS.

    So, either people who voted in this poll haven't the foggiest idea what is actually happening versus what the MSM is shoveling out - or they approve of the country getting further and further into debt.
