Barack Obama Is Tanking

PRESIDENT’S POLL NUMBERS HIT RECORD LOW … 

U.S. President Barack Obama is experiencing record-low approval ratings as the American economy continues to, um … “recover.”

Or whatever it is we want to call what the economy is doing … 

Oh, and that whole “Obamacare” thing isn’t helping, either.

According to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, Obama’s approval rating currently stands at 41 percent – a two-point drop from January. That’s a record low for this particular survey.

Meanwhile 54 percent of the country disapproves of the job Obama is doing – equaling a record high.

Obama is also losing his “likability” factor – or the ability to maintain support among Americans who may disagree with his views or disapprove of his job performance.

“The problem for Obama and Democrats in this poll is that his personal likability no longer keeps his overall numbers afloat,” the website HotAir noted.

Before so-called “Republicans” get too excited, though, the poll found 45 percent of the country had negative feelings about them – compared to only 27 percent who had a positive impression. Thirty-eight percent of those surveyed had a negative view of the Democratic party – compared to 35 percent who viewed Democrats in a positive light.

Talk about fertile ground for third party – or at the very least independent candidates not beholden to either establishment’s failed dogma.

The Wall Street Journal/ NBC poll was conducted from March 5-9. A thousand adults were surveyed, and its margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percent.

Duh…but it really means nothing because he lied BEFORE the 2012 election…Now any recovery or reclamation effort has to wait at least 2 years, maybe 4.

If we can take the Senate, and make the House majority Conservative, with a hatred for what Obama stands for, it makes a difference.

Getting numbers to defeat him and the democrats is ALL that matters. “I told you so” is empty, if you care about what Obama has done to our country…

Overturning his mess will mean something…

National polls are meaningless, especially in district races. Rs fare better than national polls ever indicate. And in statewide (Senate) races, off-year, Conservatives do MUCH better…

2010 we defeated Obama in a large way…and it’s why we’ve been able to block some of his dangerous takeover attempts.

If your corrupt messiah not on the ballot, it’s hard to get the criminals, multiple-voters and illegals to come out. That’s why we should get him good in 2014. And the House and Senate will be more Paul and Cruz Conservative…Thank God…(and I do pray we begin to heal this Obama-damaged land)….

As much as GrandTango spouts total nonsense, he is actually right. The Republicans finally do have the numbers to beat Obama. Those numbers are 2008 and 2012. Obama doesn’t stand a chance getting reelected now! CHECKMATE DEMOCRATS!

A new Bloomberg Poll finds President Obama “is rebounding from record-low approval ratings as he remedies the botched rollout of his health-care website and moves past the budget standoffs of the last several years.”

“Less than eight months before the November midterm elections, Americans are evenly split, with 48% approving of Obama’s job performance, up from 42% in December — the biggest positive change of his presidency… He’s also registering an improved favorability rating at 49%, the highest since last June.”

Fifty-one percent of Americans favor retaining the Affordable Care Act with “small modifications,” while 13 percent would leave the law intact and 34 percent would repeal it. That’s the highest level of public acceptance for the law yet in the Bloomberg poll.

Whatever you do, though, don’t bring up Obamacare while on a comedy show with a plump, bearded man with a few plants. That really pisses them off.

Damn! does that mean Bush is the better president after all???

I’ve often thought it’s a greater crime against humanity to wage a war based on lies for trillions of dollars charged on the credit card that leads to immediate and palpable economic disaster than to attempt to provide health care for that same nation.

The point is what kind of America do you want – not what kind of asshole do you want.

CorruptionInColumbia March 13, 2014 at 5:54 pm

The bad thing is, in most elections (national, state, local) anymore, it is a contest between one asshole and another or others. When all we have to chose from is assholes, it kind of becomes a question of “which asshole do we want?”

euwe max March 13, 2014 at 6:04 pm

Yes, but that’s not what we should be discussing *here* – we should be discussing solutions and building a consensus.. at least then we could choose the asshole who promises to implement those solutions – and lose his job if he doesn’t.

If we can get enough people to agree on a direction *that makes sense* – we might be able to interest power brokers into believing we’re really serious about it, and that we won’t accept bullshit as a response.

Who in the hell let Bachmann get away with saying all that shit without saying something like “who is *this* bimbo?” They actually accepted her as someone that mattered.. well *someone* did, and no one seemed to notice – “Hey! look! we elected a cockroach!”

Rather than discussing the issues, we seem to talk about things which have little to do with our own best interests… perhaps because at base, our underlying philosophies have gone unexamined in the presence of a dialectic.

So sorry March 13, 2014 at 9:32 pm

“Are we really going to turn the nation over to the 1% and a bunch of pig farmers who think they *won*?”

You think you’ve a choice, an option, some control, etc. You’ve none. The thing is, this little charade our masters have going isn’t going to last forever. They just better hope they’ve found themselves a seat before the music stops playing.

Of course reforming health care is worse than pissing trillions away in the Middle East, defense contractors and Halliburton don’t make money on a cancer patient being able to get health insurance.

Too bad the “us vs them” crap only really leads us to one big loser..”US”..as the American public.

For some reason many seem to view what our elected leaders do as some type of football game, where the moe “points” your red (or blue) team determines your own self worth.

The problem is no mater what either team does, WE lose.

How about changing the discussion away from religion and war, and start talking about jobs and health care – doing *that* right, rather than not at all.

I know a guy who remembers when the Republican Party had advocates that were educated – since I showed up on the internets, I have seen a few rational Republicans (who were ashamed of what the Party has become, and wondered themselves where the intellectual base went)..

you know, with a good sense of humor and the ability to detach themselves, and discuss their paranoid delusions as if they were sane.. but in all, Damned Tango seems to be the intellectual height of the majority of Republicans… sociopaths like Squishy and the anonymous name changer..

boors whose intellectual legs grow too short to even reach the ground, whose main purpose seems to empty their spleen in revenge of a society which allowed their mothers to prostitute themselves, succumbing to drugs in the 80’s after their 60’s hippy chick days left them without a mate, and jobs as strippers became less lucrative, and descended into hopelessness as “liberals” drunk and passed out while little Bobby struggled his way through school, beaten by one itinerant father after another, a paperback of “Atlas Scrugged” in his back pocket..

Ah, I’ve heard of the days of the General.. .when *real* issues were discussed, and wars were waged in the heavens… within oceans of genius.. .in the skies beyond good and evil… sociopaths against the truly good, with the innocent the prize…
Bez – eyes glowing red through black steel helmet, upon an obsidian steed – nostrils blowing steam, at bridle upon a pile of headless Bushies, battle ax dripping blood onto the field…

ah… those were the days.

Good Times!
