(User Submitted) – Writing in the New Republic, William Galston unveils the results of a most recent Democracy Corps poll taken on the public's perception of President Obama. The left-leaning polling firm, headed by James Carville and Stan Greenberg, found that 55% of those questioned agreed that "Obama is a socialist," versus 39% who do not. By a similar margin, those polled don't believe he has realistic solutions to the country's problems.

Further bad news for the president include a 51% disapproval rate and majority perception that he's disconnected from the responders' "values." This spells bad news for Democrats in the November elections, from which, Galston believes, they "can't recover" before the midterms. Read the full article.

Word of the Day: Dhimmitude I had never heard the word until now---Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting. Note that Muslims and certain other religions are exempt from the Obamacare penalties and it is supported by law. Obama is leading us right down the path to total Muslim control. Obamacare discriminates against Christians and Jews by denying them special exemptions extended to other religions. I was under the belief that we cannot discriminate in the U.S. Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to islam. The ObamaCare bill and the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia is muslim dictate in the United States . Muslims may be specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be "gambling", "risk-taking" and "usury" and is thus banned. Muslims may be specifically granted exemption based on this. So I as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, cars and etc. and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance at our expence. Non-muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the Muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to Islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to Islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y and Z types who have no moral anchor or belief in God! Now all you Obama voters and those that want Obamacare get in line for your free stuff!.... free to you that is. Also, try spewing again that Obama is not a Muslim Socialist. P.S. Have you heard about the summit Obama is holding this month in DC for the future Muslim business leaders in the US ? He wants to increase their ability to begin business opportunities in the US for the Muslim community! 1. Health Insurance Exemptions ••• Are various religious groups exempt from requirements to obtain health insurance?

Sounds like push polling from how the questions / results are structured. I kinda don't find this news worthy.
