Obama's a Uniter 48% Say So!

Some things are just so mind blow­ingly ridicu­lous that it amazes me that they would be said.

Here is the WSJ arti­cle.

By a more than 2-​to-​1 mar­gin, Amer­i­cans say Mr. Obama is doing a bet­ter job over­all than Repub­li­cans at attempt­ing to unify the coun­try in a bipar­ti­san way, a new Wall Street Journal/​NBC News poll finds.

The poll found that 48% of respon­dents see Mr. Obama as try­ing to unify the coun­try, com­pared to 22% who said that of Repub­li­cans and 37% who said that of Democrats

Dic​tio​nary​.com defines “unify” thus:

u·ni·fy
[yoo-​nuh-​fahy] verb (used with object), verb (used with­out object), u·ni·fied, u·ni·fy·ing.
to make or become a sin­gle unit; unite: to unify con­flict­ing the­o­ries; to unify a country.

Now I admit I’m just a blog­ger and radio talk show host but be def­i­n­i­tion and not a paid mem­ber of NBC or the WSJ but if 48% of the peo­ple said Barack Obama is unit­ing the coun­try, then by def­i­n­i­tion 52% of the peo­ple did not?

No won­der the same media is try­ing to sell us Seques­tra­tion as a cut. They must think we are a nation of idiots.

Then again given the results of he last election…

Update: Glenn links while Seques­tra­tion brings back mem­o­ries of my youth.

Here is the WSJ article.

By a more than 2-to-1 margin, Americans say Mr. Obama is doing a better job overall than Republicans at attempting to unify the country in a bipartisan way, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

The poll found that 48% of respondents see Mr. Obama as trying to unify the country, compared to 22% who said that of Republicans and 37% who said that of Democrats

Dictionary.com defines “unify” thus:

u·ni·fy
[yoo-nuh-fahy] verb (used with object), verb (used without object), u·ni·fied, u·ni·fy·ing.
to make or become a single unit; unite: to unify conflicting theories; to unify a country.

Now I admit I’m just a blogger and radio talk show host but be definition and not a paid member of NBC or the WSJ but if 48% of the people said Barack Obama is uniting the country, then by definition 52% of the people did not?

No wonder the same media is trying to sell us Sequestration as a cut. They must think we are a nation of idiots.

Then again given the results of he last election…
