What the lamestream anti-Bush liberal news media took hundreds of thousands of words and months to reiterate and explain and re-explain during the Bush years, over and over and over again until it really sunk in, they spent nary a word discussing today. That is, how the folks feel their president has dealt with a crisis. But several polls point to the same thing. Obama’s handling of this oil leak crisis is worse than Bush’s was of Hurricane Katrina. And it can be credibly argued that the reporting about Bush’s handling of Katrina helped bring down the Republicans and badly tarnished Bush’s legacy.
As I said, the news item here is really twofold: the poll results; but moreover, the fact that the news media is not reporting on the polls that are negative toward Obama —not reporting on how biased they themselves, the liberal media, are; and by extension, how politically misleading they are being which, given the potential political fallout as witnessed in the case of President Bush, actually rises to the point of journalistic and political corruption.
This poll is by a Democratic Party-leaning pollster:
Our new Louisiana poll has a lot of data points to show how unhappy voters in the state are with Barack Obama’s handling of the oil spill but one perhaps sums it up better than anything else- a majority of voters there think George W. Bush did a better job with Katrina than Obama’s done dealing with the spill.
50% of voters in the state, even including 31% of Democrats, give Bush higher marks on that question compared to 35% who pick Obama.
Overall only 32% of Louisianans approve of how Obama has handled the spill to 62% who disapprove. 34% of those polled say they approved of how Bush dealt with Katrina to 58% who disapproved. …
Fox News Channel is covering it. They have chosen to inform fully, rather than misinform by an omission of facts.
A Gfk/AP poll suggests the same thing, and again Fox is reporting it:
An earlier poll done by Obama-mania media ABC News and his fanatics at Washington Post says the same thing as reported by Policitco.com but buried by nearly every other lamestream news source (Fox News covered it too):
More than two-thirds of Americans rate the federal government’s response to the oil spill off the Gulf Coast negatively — topping the number of those who said the same about Hurricane Katrina soon after it hit the region nearly five years ago, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Sixty-nine percent of the 1,004 adults polled nationwide held a negative view of the federal government’s response to the massive spill; only 28 percent gave the government a positive rating.
Two weeks after Katrina struck the Gulf Coast in August 2005, the same survey showed 62 percent of Americans held a negative view of the government’s response…
CBC news: NOTHING. Not a word. Try a search yourself!
Tonight, Obama will give another unfiltered speech on how awesome he is and has been (“since day one” — a provable lie) with regard to his handling of this oil leak crisis. The CBC will cover that. Live. We know this because they’ve been promoting it, all day long. Using a giant picture of a forlorn Obama, an oil-soaked bird, and gushing oil.
They also haven’t reported that Obama has played seven rounds of golf since the oil started leaking — including one just this past weekend, while the oil gushed.
