Americans Lost Confidence in the Presidency, But Somehow Not in Obama
RUSH: There's a Gallup poll out today that 29% -- let me find it here. It's really low. Twenty-nine percent of the American people have confidence in the presidency.
Now, it says here at Cybercast News Service that this new poll may not be directed at Obama, but it's more bad news nevertheless. "A new Gallup poll on the three branches of government reveals that the American public’s faith in the Presidency is at the lowest point of President Obama’s term, just 29%." How in the world do you say it has nothing to do with him? If you're gonna poll people on whether they got confidence in the presidency, why does it not matter who the president is? But yet that's what we're being told.
Now, Congress' job approval ratings is like 7%. The presidency is 29%. The Supreme Court is the branch of government people have the most confidence in, according to this Gallup poll, and that's 30%. So one percentage point higher than the confidence people have in the presidency. Seven percent is the confidence they have in Congress. And that's an all-time low, but it's hardly big news. Congress always polls very, very poorly.
So they want to get this done before the November elections, because after that, if they don't get amnesty done, then it's judged with a Republican majority everywhere, it's gonna get tougher and tougher and tougher to get it done. And Chuck Schumer will not be able to benefit politically from all the new registered voters, the Democrats and all that. So that's what the pressure points are, and that's why Obama is ratcheting all of this stuff up.
Warren Buffett Company Sued for Racism
RUSH: The Daily Caller has a story. Headline: "Fired Black Employee Sues Paint Company Over Racist Paint Names -- A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained. Clinton Tucker, who managed online sales for Benjamin Moore, which is owned by the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said that he was bothered by the names of several of the company's paint colors, 'Clinton Brown,' 'Tucker Chocolate,' and 'Confederate Red.' 'Being a black man named Clinton Tucker, the plaintiff found this to be extremely racially offensive,' reads the complaint, filed in Essex County Court."
A Warren Buffett company would do something like this?
Somebody so close to Obama?
