    President Obama has garnered widespread support for his early actions in office, but Americans strongly oppose the commander-in-chief's first two executive orders -- allowing federal funding for overseas abortions and closing Guantanamo -- according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.

    Fifty-eight percent of Americans said they disagreed with the president's decision to give overseas funding to family planning organizations that provide abortions, according to the survey taken between Friday and Sunday. Thirty-five percent supported it.

    And of course:

    Makes it sound a little closer then you make it seem. Besides, wouldn't rely on a poll exactly considering location and whether Democrats or Republicans were oversampled.

    And of course you also don't add:

    Thanks for only posting the only part of the story that helps your Obama hate. Try again though.

    What fucking bullshit. McCain supporters made this point a thousand times during the elections, and we were batted down every time. We actually turned out to be WRONG, but now you're trying to feed us our own regurgitation? Give me a break. If the election proved anything, polls CAN be right.

    Why are we providing medical care <read abortions>for people overseas when so many of our own people don't have medical care?

    Seems to me, Americans should come first.

    Amazing how faux news and it's adherants contort themselves to advance their little agenda.

    The REAL headline:

    Gallup.Com - Polls, Daily Tracking, Public Opinion on News, Politics, Economics, Management

    They aren't in with the two exec orders that you're talking about because a) lunatics are saying they're funding overseas ABORTION PROVIDERS (big deal!) and are ringing the hysteria bell over closing Gitmo. (in a continued effort to destroy habeas corpus).

    Obama lifted Bush's GAG RULE... which denied funds to anyone that used the word abortion in counseling. It was one of those gifts to the rabid religious right.

    Seventy-six percent also said the agreed with Obama's decision to tighten ethics rules for administration officials.


    That's pretty funny right there... considering ethics have had nothing to do with Obama's administration construction

    That's not what lifting Bush's gag rule did.

    ABC News: Obama Overturns 'Mexico City Policy' Implemented by Reagan

    President Obama signed an executive order today reversing the ban that prohibits funding to international family planning groups that provide abortions, as first reported by ABC News.

    sure looks to me like we are sending money to international family planning groups that provide abortions .....
