Barack gets the Bird

Will an American newsreader now do the same to a photo of Putin, twice? They escalate, we escalate, it could be the boost to the economy that we have been waiting for...
Is it because he is black or was she just upset with his fiscal policy?
Barry's latest Quinnipiac numbers.
Economic sanctions to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons aren't effective, American voters say 60 - 33 percent, and 50 percent of voters say the U.S. should take military action to stop Iran's nuclear program if sanctions don't work, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

American voters tell the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll 55 - 36 percent that the U.S. should not take military action against Iran. But 25 percent of those opponents shift to support military action if sanctions fail.

The combined result is 50 percent in favor of military action if sanctions fail, with 38 percent opposed.

If Israel attacks Iran, 46 percent of voters say the U.S. should support that move, with 6 percent who say the U.S. should oppose it and 44 percent who say the U.S. should be neutral.

A total of 88 percent of Americans voters say Iran's nuclear program is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" threat to U.S. national security with no disagreement from any group.

American voters disapprove 50 - 44 percent of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, but approve 49 - 42 percent of his handling of foreign policy and approve 46 - 38 percent of the way he is handling Iran. Voters say 48 - 45 percent that President Obama does not deserve a second term.

"Americans are very concerned about the development of an Iranian nuclear program and don't think the current policy of economic sanctions is effective," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "Voters are not yet to the point that they want the U.S. military to stop it, but 50 percent say that if the sanctions eventually prove to be ineffective then they would support the use of force."

While voters say by almost 2-1 the sanctions have not been effective, there are partisan differences. Only 27 percent of Republicans say sanctions are "very effective" or "somewhat effective," compared to 44 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of independent voters.

The same split shows when voters are asked about using military force against Iran:
50 percent of Republicans support the use of force in any case, with another 15 percent who support force if sanctions fail and 23 percent opposed to force no matter what;
29 percent of Democrats support force with no conditions, with 14 percent who support force if sanctions fail and 45 percent opposed to force; 31 percent of independent voters support force in any case, with 14 percent who support force if sanctions fail and 43 percent opposed to force.

On another matter, voters say 48 - 40 percent that the U.S. Supreme Court should overturn Obama's new health care law. Democrats support the health care law 70 - 19 percent, while opposition is 86 - 8 percent among Republicans and 45 - 38 percent among independent voters.
My bold, incidentally that's about the level of support the Libyan adventure got in the US i.e. decidedly luke warm. On going into Vietnam and Iraq Septic numbers were both in the high 70s. If Barry is looking at that contingency he needs to start whipping up the fear.
