Anyone that defends this administration needs to move out of this country!! I have a better idea...Lets draw a line right down the middle of the country....Libs on one side Conservatives on the other and lets see who lasts longer while following their core principles....

    President Obama’s Cabinet: How Do They Rate?
    Saturday, April 16, 2011

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates are the most popular and best-known members of President Obama's Cabinet. Janet Napolitano, the Homeland Security secretary, is nearly as well-known but not nearly as well-liked.

    The rest of Obama’s Cabinet, despite the major roles they play in shaping and carrying out government policy, are unknown to large numbers of voters. (see summary table)

    Since January, Rasmussen Reports has been asking Likely U.S. Voters what they think of each of the 15 Cabinet members, and this is what we found:

    -- Hillary Clinton is viewed favorably by 55% and unfavorably by 38% of voters nationwide. But the figures for the former first lady and presidential hopeful have declined since the United States became militarily involved in Libya. Many news reports have characterized her as the strongest advocate for U.S. involvement in Libya.

    -- Robert Gates, the only member of the Cabinet carried over from the George W. Bush administration, is viewed favorably by 44%. Twenty-seven percent (27%) have an unfavorable opinion of the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

    -- Janet Napolitano has received a lot of criticism for new TSA airport security policies and from those who question the Obama administration's response to illegal immigration. Just 25% of voters have a favorable impression of the former Arizona governor, while 47% have an unfavorable opinion of her.

    -- Attorney General Eric Holder also earns favorable reviews from only 25% of voters, down 10 points from August 2009, and unfavorable marks from 37%. But another 37% don’t enough about Holder to offer any opinion of him.

    -- Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is at the heart of the Obama administration's decisions about the economy, but just 24% see him in a favorable light. Forty percent (40%) have an unfavorable opinion of Geithner, while more than one-third of voters have no opinion of the longtime government official.

    -- The new national health care law has made Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, one of the most powerful women in America, but nearly half the country’s voters don’t seem to know who the former Kansas governor is. Her favorable ratings total 21%, and her unfavorable marks add up to 34%.

    (Want a free daily e-mail update? If it's in the news, it's in our polls). Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook.

    Other Cabinet members are even less well-known:

    -- Fifty percent (50%) have no opinion of Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood. Eighteen percent (18%) share a favorable opinion of the former Republican congressman, while 32% view him unfavorably.

    -- Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is an unknown quantity to 57% of voters. The ex-senator from Colorado is viewed favorably by 16% and unfavorably by 27%.

    -- Energy policy has been a key issue in the Obama administration. Still, nearly two-out-of-three voters (61%) don’t know enough about Energy Secretary Steven Chu to voice an opinion of him. Nineteen percent (19%) have a favorable view of the Nobel Prize-winning physicist, while 20% regard him unfavorably.

    -- Seventeen percent (17%) of voters share a favorable opinion of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, while 21% view him unfavorably. Like Chu, 61% are not sure what they think of the former CEO of the Chicago Public Schools.

    -- Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack, the secretary of Agriculture, is seen favorably by 20% and unfavorably by 17%. Sixty-three percent (63%) don't venture any kind of opinion of Vilsack.

    -- Commerce Secretary Gary Locke is also an ex-governor - from the state of Washington. The first Chinese-American to be elected to a governorship, he was recently nominated by the president to be the new U.S. ambassador to China. But just 11% of voters have a favorable impression of Locke, while 19% view him unfavorably. Seventy percent (70%) have no opinion of the Commerce secretary.

    -- Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis is unknown to 75% of voters. Only six percent (6%) have a favorable view of the ex-Democratic congresswoman from southern California, while 19% have an unfavorable impression of her.

    -- Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki, despite the political sensitivity of his post, is regarded favorably by nine percent (9%) and unfavorably by 11%. But that's because 80% don't know enough about the retired top Army general to have an opinion of him.

    -- Eighty-one percent (81%) have no opinion of Shaun Donovan, the secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The former New York City housing official is seen favorably by eight percent (8%) and unfavorably by 12%.

    Don't be fooled into thinking that this all came about in just a few short years. What's happening today has been carefully planned and executed over a much longer period of time.

    Holder should be in prison and Napolitano should be in a home for the criminally stupid. Clinton should be the next Secretary of Pants Suits. The rest are no better.

    I got a feeling by the time this election is over with is that the patriot american is going to be marching on Washington. Thats going to be the only way the bums are going to leave. The voting booths are going to be so rigged that the favor is going to be in Obama's court. Tell me I'm wrong. Please!

    Recurvyarcher, your right on the target. This has been in the plans for some time. Orchestrated here in Chicago over the past 10 years by none other than Richard M. Daley king of Illinois and the democrats.
