Majority Of New Jerseyans Still Approve Of Obama

TRENTON, NJ (AP) – A new poll indicates a slight majority of New Jersey voters approve of President Barack Obama’s job performance.

But 58 percent of those surveyed in the Fairleigh Dickinson-PublicMind poll out Monday believe the country is on the wrong track.

The poll found 51 percent of respondents approved of Obama while 40 percent disapproved. That’s up from the last FDU poll in October, when 47 percent approved of the president and 43 percent disapproved.

Respondents also were asked about U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, with 31 percent holding a favorable opinion of the Democrat, while 25 percent viewed him unfavorably. Another 29 percent were undecided and 15 percent hadn’t heard of him.

    More needs to be said that Obama is gay. There is very legitimate evidence that says that he is. Why doesn’t he admit it? The answer is that if he’s gay then there’s a probability that he’s being controlled with it.

    Do a search on: “Obama gay bath house”. Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same Chicago gay bath house. This is according to informed sources in Chicago’s gay community and veteran political sources in the city.

    Some of the people who he has reportedly had affairs with include:
    Donald Young, Trinity United Church of Christ Choir director
    Larry Sinclair, gay escort
    Reggie Love, White House presidential assistant and Obama’s personal trainer and White House “special assistant” — also called Obama’s “body man”
    Artur Davis, US Representative from Alabama and gubernatorial candidate
    Bill Frist, former GOP Senate Majority Leader
    Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts

    Several well-placed sources in Chicago also reported that Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s church pastor of 20 years for the Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) ran a matchmaking service for gay married black professional members of the church, including lawyers and businessmen, particularly those with children. The clientele also included Obama and other gay members of TUCC.

    The reason why so many politicians are closet gays is because it is a shame factor that is used as a control mechanism just like child abuse.

    The problem is also that whether it’s known or not that they’re gay it is still a shame factor and this gives them a tendency to do other shameful things since they evaluate the shame of doing something else that’s shameful with that of what they’ve already being shamed with, i.e, that they’re gay. This has implications for trust.

    It’s always going to be a shame factor since it goes against what people believe is god and it goes against evolution and, thus, it means that they’re innately in conflict with what most other people believe and have it in them to think is wrong. This also has implications for trust.

    It goes against god and evolution. It’s not normal. We must use this to do something about it.

    The question is which portion of NJ they asked: North Jersey, Central or South? I bet you can find more Liberal Morons in the North, where this disgrace to Higher Education is located. Or may be they just called the number listed on their student body. No surprises there!

    It must be the water…..

    i suspect that that paragon of new jersey education, affectionately known as fairly ridiculous university, a rat’s next of liberals, used the data base of union members, welfare recipients and guests at rahway state prison as their sample group. didn’t they also indicate that corzine was a sure winner in the last gubernatorial election? the tide has turned, and 2012 will be the new dawn of american hegemony in the world, just like reagan.
