NY Pols... Obama Desperate, Poll:FOXNEWS most trusted
Pols: Tri-Staters Not In Love With 'New' Obama
President In Deep Trouble With Middle Class; Many Think His Attempt To 'Reconnect' Shows Serious Desperation
Commander-In-Chief To Present New Ideas At State Of The Union Address
President Barack Obama plans to use his state of the union address to "reconnect" with the middle class. Some say it's an open admission to many here in the tri-state area that he has failed to feel our pain and our needs.
From his war on the banks -- the lifeblood of the metropolitan area economy -- to his health care reform which could cost taxpayers here over $1 billion, President Obama's policies have sent a strong message to the tri-state area that Washington doesn't care about the middle class.
Suddenly, he claims he wants to change that.
Poll: Fox is most trusted name in news
Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday.
A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.
Thirty-seven percent said they didn't trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded.
There was a strong partisan split among those who said they trusted Fox - with 74 percent of Republicans saying they trusted network, while only 30 percent of Democrats said they did.
CNN was the second most trusted network, getting the trust of 39 percent of those polled. Forty-one percent said they didn't trust CNN.
Each of the three major networks was trusted by less than 40 percent of those surveyed, with NBC ranking highest at 35 percent. Forty-four percent said they did not trust NBC, which was combined with its sister cable station MSNBC.
Thirty-two percent of respondents said they trusted CBS, while 31 percent trusted ABC. Both CBS and ABC were not trusted by 46 percent of those polled.
"A generation ago you would have expected Americans to place their trust in the most neutral and unbiased conveyors of news," said PPP President Dean Debnam in his analysis of the poll. "But the media landscape has really changed, and now they're turning more toward the outlets that tell them what they want to hear."
" tell them what they want to hear"...man, the left just CANNOT STAND IT. There IS an objective reality. When the tree falls there is a sound 100% of the time, even 4 million light years away. Recognizing and acting on it, increases the chance of success. Delusion usually fails.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.
"The problem is if they think they )the citizens) are not doing anything that’s wrong, they don’t get to define that. The central government does, the central government defines what is right and wrong and whether or not they target you. So, it’s not up to the individuals. Even if they think they aren't doing something wrong, if their position on something is against what the administration has, then they could easily become a target."

"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
