    Re: Worst day since 2008 financial crisis

    today:

    A stunning new survey gives the president a negative approval rating in the Empire State for the first time, with just 45 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval among voters, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.

    That's a sharp turnaround from June, when Obama's New York popularity was a healthy 57-38.

    "The debt-ceiling hullabaloo devastated Obama's numbers even in true-blue New York," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
    NY turns on Obama, says Quinnipiac University poll - NYPOST.com

    The debate over raising the debt ceiling, which brought the nation to the brink of default, has sent disapproval of Congress to its highest level on record and left most Americans saying that creating jobs should now take priority over cutting spending, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

    A record 82 percent of Americans now disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job -- the most since The Times first began asking the question in 1977, and even more than after another political stalemate led to a shutdown of the federal government in 1995. More than four out of five people surveyed said that the recent debt ceiling debate was more about gaining political advantage than about doing what is best for the country. Nearly three-quarters said that the debate had harmed the image of the U.S. in the world.
    Do you really think that the people of my district care about yours or anyone else's? Congressional poll numbers are a waste of time for it is all about your local Rep. Keep ignoring the Obama results. Didn't he inherite a AAA credit rating from Bush?

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!

    But according to Quinnipiac, Obama in his re-election bid next year would still take 49 percent of the vote in New York state versus a generic GOP challenger's 34 percent.

    Yep, liberals have no interest in actual results, just the smile and the rhetoric. 49% in NY? LOL

    Yes along with -9% GDP, 22 million underemployed, 14% unemployment rate, a $1.2 trillion deficit, 11 trillion in debt, a housing crisis, a mortgage crisis, a credit crisis, a stock market in free fall, and a monster recession which lost 8 million jobs and over 5% in GDP.

    Cries a Conservative who doesn't care about results, just the letter "R" after a candidate's name.

    As has been pointed out, Obama took the unemployment number and increased it, he took the labor force and reduced it. Obama took the 10.4 trillion debt and increased it. Yes, those are numbers that you must be very proud of and he did it with a Democrat Congress

    Results don't matter to a liberal unless it is a Republican. Wonder what your comments would be today if these numbers belonged to a Republican? Didn't Obama inherit a AAA credit rating?

    Doesn't it make you wonder if the credit downgrade was worth it? Didn't obama inherit a AAA rating from Bush?
    In 2008 Bush handed Obama the worse job loss (2,590,000) since 1945 which was 2,750,000. Even worse than Reagan's job loss in 1982 of 2,130,00. Nov. and Dec. of 2008 were 2 straight months where the economy lost over 500,000 jobs.

    Total 2008 job loss: 2.6 million - Jan. 9, 2009
