    Soooo what is it with this Guy?

    Nothing he supports seems to match up with most Americans. I'm thinkin his legacy after the 2012 election will be ..the President who couldn't listen..

    -------------------------:eusa_doh:


    Given the choice between cutting the federal payroll and giving all federal workers a modest raise, a solid majority of voters say, “Cut!”

    A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 63% of Likely U.S. Voters believe cutting the federal payroll is better for the economy even as President Obama calls for a small pay hike for federal workers in his latest budget. Eighteen percent (18%) say giving all federal workers a modest raise is the better option, but just as many (19%) are not sure.

    63% Favor Federal Payroll Cuts Over Pay Raises To Help Economy - Rasmussen Reports™

    Obama already cut the federal payroll down from what it was under the Failure Bush.

    Want to post some poll numbers? How about these beauts?


    Only 26% of respondents say the Republican party is going in the right direction, and only 55% of Republicans think that.
    For Democrats, the number are much higher 35% and 53%.
    Jeez, Democrats Are Slaughtering The GOP When It Comes To Public Opinion - Business Insider rty-public-opinion-cbs-poll

    Only a QUARTER of America thinks Republicans know the right direction.
    There's the question Obama will be posing in November. Do you want REPUBLICANS to choose where we go next?

    The story isn't federal employees benefits and pay outstripping the private sector, its the stagnation of private sector pay and benefits. Wages have been stagnant since Reagan.
    All government workers did was maintain the post WW2 rate of improvement while the Private Sector, emboldened by Reaganomics, screwed middle class workers since thee 80's. Tell me...which would YOU rather have? Bitter recriminations of other people or a bigger paycheck yourself?

    Your chart only shows the number of federal employees during Obama's term in office. This is your idea of proving your claim?

    http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf

    Number of federal employees, January 2012: 2.809 million.



    http://www.bls.gov/news.release/archives/empsit_02012008.pdf

    Number of federal employees, January 2009: 2.715 million.

    Actually, several polls show that the majority of American people agree with his policies.

    - Tax hikes on the wealthy

    - Giving tax breaks to corporations who create domestic jobs

    - Spending on infrastructure

    - Spending on alternative energy

    - Illegal immigration

    - Job training

    - His trade policies with China

    - Ending the war in Iraq

    A lynch-mob is a majority.

    You really believe head-count establishes right-from-wrong?
