Too Much

Rasmussen Reports: “60% Say Government Has Too Much Power, Too Much Money

Sixty percent (60%) of Americans say the federal government has too much power and too much money, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Just nine percent (9%) say the government has too little power and money. Twenty-four percent (24%) believe the government has about the right amount of both.

Not surprisingly, the Political Class sees things a lot differently. While 85% of Mainstream Americans say the government has too much power and money, just two percent (2%) of the Political Class agree. Nearly one-our-of-four members (24%) of the Political Class, in fact, believe the government has too little money and power, but 68% say it has about the right amount of each.

While slightly more than half of those working for both the government and private industry say the government is too big, 79% of entrepreneurs feel that way.

That last sentence has a real nugget in it. More than half of the people who work for the government think that the government is too big.  

And this is before the grand design to create Omerica has even been put to a vote.

Yes, I realize that Obama appears to believe he can coast in, riding a wave of personal popularity. I realize that the full might and power of the closely controlled Obama noise machine is desperately spinning its highly coordinated messaging through its lapdog lefty blogs and its rapidly disintegrating lefty media. But these numbers suggest that Obama may be in for a rude surprise.

    Personal popularity? Presidente Zero? Now I can understand that comment in Teheran, Havana, or Venezuela, perhaps Moscow or Beijing but in the USA? I predict in four years even blacks will be ashamed they voted for bozo.

    Obamie makes me long for the competence of Carter, the honesty of Clinton and the charm of Nixon.

    I do like the telepromter though but not his wife Lt Whorf.

    Must be difficult trying to run a country where 40% of the citizens are dumber’n a sack of hoe handles.

    Rasmussen has actually identified the slippery slope that Team Obama is sliding down. Not only are they attempting to take over key industries, they will totally bungle the job once they achieve a little control.

    Americans really do like their freedom. Right now they can’t see why supporting Obama threatens that freedom. When government takes over Health Care, Auto Manufacturing and Telecommunications – they’ll see soon enough.

    Well, I just read on Bizzy Blog that government tax receipts are falling way short of last year, so the “government having too much money” thing may be self correcting.
