American Optimism at Lowest Point Since Carter, But What Difference Does It Make?

RUSH: There’s a new Gallup poll out, ladies and gentlemen. It found that the American people’s optimism is at its lowest point since the Carter regime. Now, what difference does that make anymore? Remember how some people in the news media laughed when we said that Obama was the Second Coming of Jimmy Carter? Remember? We’re embarking on Jimmy Carter’s third term now, and American optimism is at its lowest point since the mid-1970s. Gallup says that 39% of Americans “rate the United States in a positive manner, which is the most negative outlook since 1979.”

That’s 34 years ago. It also happens to be before the Reagan revolution, which Obama is doing his best to roll back. But what difference does that make anymore? So Americans… It kind of fits, doesn’t it? Americans’ optimism is in the tank so they reelect Obama. To me, it fits. Now, Gallup does say that Americans “are more upbeat in their predictions about where the country will be in five years.” Now in five years, if Obama abdicates, then Obama won’t be around. So Gallup says the American people are expecting everything to turn around in five years.

Obama submits to Brotherhood, asks for suppression of anti-Islam video

President Barack Obama has bowed to the Muslim Brotherhood’s demand that the federal government suppress a satirical video of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.

Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the National Security Council, told the Washington Post that the White House has “reached out to YouTube to call the video to their attention and ask them to review whether it violates their terms of use.”

Youtube’s executives shut down videos that they deem “hate speech.” But YouTube spokesperson said Sept. 12 that the video “is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube.”

Obama’s request complies with the Sept. 13 demand and threat by the brotherhood, which now governs the Arab world’s largest country, Egypt.

“Hurting the feelings of one and a half billion Muslims cannot be tolerated, and… we demand that all those involved in such crimes be urgently brought to trial,” according to an English-language statement on the brotherhood’s website.

The brotherhood’s demand included a threat of additional violence during Obama’s re-election campaign.

“The people’s anger and fury for their Faith is invariably predictable, often unstoppable,” said the website.
