It seems that the Dems have a motto. "If you are in a hole, dig faster"
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 23% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19.
Today is the second straight day that Obama’s Approval Index rating has fallen to a new low. Prior to the past two days, the Approval Index had never fallen below -15 during Obama’s time in office (see trends).
Spike in Number of Cops Killed by Gunfire in Line of Duty – Local News | News Articles | National News | US News – FOXNews.com
If I were to say “this is Obama’s fault”, I would be just as crazy as all the BDS liberals out there who blamed everything on him. Obama didn’t cause these people to attack cops and should not be blamed for it.
I do have to ask something though. Has any metric of how our country is doing improved in any way since Bush left?
As the guy in the article says “There’s an increasingly desperate population out there”. Who’s fault that is… Well, I’ll leave that one unanswered. I think we all know.
The number of officers killed in the line of duty by gunfire increased 24 percent from 2008, according to preliminary statistics compiled by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a national nonprofit organization that tracks officer-related deaths.
As of Saturday, 47 police officers have died nationwide this year after being shot while on duty, up from 38 for the same time in 2008, which was the lowest number of gunfire deaths since 1956, according to the data.
Over the past decade, small spikes in gunfire deaths have been common, but experts say they are surprised by the number of officers this year who have been specifically targeted by gunmen.
“There’s an increasingly desperate population out there,” said Eugene O’Donnell, a professor of police studies at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. “Other than in rare cases for ideological reasons, we really haven’t seen people taking on the cops head-to-head. Something is amiss. It should be cause for grave concern.”
