The economy is in shambles. Yet, when Americans were recently polled concerning issues of importance to them, the economy was not at the top of the list. How shocking!
Guess what issue topped even the economy as the top concern for Americans polled? It's the corruption, stupid. We are sick to death of the greed, corruption, and lack of accountability from our politicians on both sides of the aisle. However, the corruption from the Obama Administration and those associated with it, as well as from members of Congress is taking its toll on average citizens. Does ACORN ring a bell?
Read the findings from this recent poll, via Michelle Malkin:
America waking up to culture of corruption
"Check out the latest Rasmussen numbers measuring the American public’s mood:
'For nearly two years, economic issues have held the top spot in terms of importance among voters.
But the latest national telephone survey shows that 83% now view government ethics and corruption as very important, placing it just ahead of the economy on a list of 10 key electoral issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports. Eighty-two percent (82%) of voters see the economy as very important.
This is the first time since October 2007 that voters have rated ethics and corruption as more important than the economy. Voters viewed the two issues evenly in November and December 2007 before placing a higher priority on the economy starting in January 2008.
Last month, 86% of voters said economic issues were very important while 80% saw government ethics that way.
The new findings come at a time when 43% of voters say the president is doing a poor job addressing government ethics and reducing corruption, up five points from early September and the highest level measured since he took office.'
The Obama-induced stupor is over. Better late than never. Nine months of thug tactics, cronyism, left-wing racketeering, and Chicago-on-the-Potomac have taken their toll.
On a related note: Culture of Corruption remains on the New York Times best-seller list for the 9th week in a row (#9) and in the Amazon.com Top 100 for 68 days straight (currently #11). Thank you for continuing to spread the word.
Here’s a relevant lament from a disappointed Chicagoan responding to the news of the city’s Olympics loss:
“Maybe the ‘machine’ isn’t working.”
'These are boom times for conservative authors.
Books by Glenn Beck and Mark Levin have sold millions of copies. Michelle Malkin’s “Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies” spent weeks at No. 1 on The New York Times nonfiction list. Sales have been strong for Dick Morris’ anti-Obama “Catastrophe” and the Beck-endorsed reissue of “The Five Thousand Year Leap,” by W. Cleon Skousen.
And Sarah Palin may top them all.
In a feat usually reserved for the likes of J.K. Rowling and Dan Brown, Palin’s book was No. 1 on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com just two days after Harper announced it had moved up the release date from the spring to Nov. 17 and that the memoir’s title was “Going Rogue.”'"
