    Obama's Approval Rating Drops to Lowest Ever, According to Gallup

    Obama's Approval Rating Drops to Lowest Ever, According to Gallup

    President Obama’s approval rating dropped to below 40 percent, an all-time low, according to Gallup’s daily tracking poll.

    The poll released Sunday says 39 percent of Americans approve Obama’s performance, while 54 percent disapprove.
    Considering Obama is the first president to preside over a downgrade in the US credit rating and doesn’t have the stones to admit he is partially responsible, choosing instead to blame Bush, the tea party, congress and anyone but himself, this doesn’t surprise me.

    Chutzpah - getting 98% of what you wanted and then blaming someone else for the consequences of you getting what you wanted


    (Not to say that Obama doesn't deserve blame for giving them what they wanted)

    He is right now on TV talking about the bad economy but he is not saying anything about his plans on "HOW TO FIX IT". Nothing but bull crap coming out of his mouth AND BLAMING OTHERS.

    Obamas approval rating is about twice as high as the republicans'

    This is a statistic that might work great for liberal talking points but won’t serve them well in the upcoming Presidential election because many republicans and tea-partiers are very unhappy with congressional republicans but they are certain to vote but it won’t be for Obama no matter who the candidates are. It might result in more republicans being thrown out of congress but those dissatisfied voters aren’t going to benefit Obama.


    In other words, it is a false sense of security to claim that republican approval ratings are lower than Obama’s or the democrats.

    I don't think that's necessarily true. If the candidate is Romney, for example, I think a lot of tea party people would stay home. I also think a lot of regular republicans would stay home.

    I doubt it... they'll go vote simply for the lesser of two evils: Romney.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
