    Obama's Popularity Plunges Amid Controversy[W:74]

    Obama's Popularity Plunges Amid Controversy - US News and World Report

    President Barack Obama's approval rating is plummeting in the midst of American dissatisfaction with the recent privacy controversies and other scandals.

    The president's approval rating is 45 percent, marking an 8-point drop in the last month, according to a CNN survey. Weighing down on the Obama administration are the revelations of government domestic spying programs, the Justice Department's secret pursuit of journalists' phone records, the Internal Revenue Service's inappropriate scrutiny of conservative political groups seeking tax-exemption status, as well as the lingering questions over the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, last fall.
    "The drop in Obama's support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition," says Keating Holland, polling director for CNN. "It is clear that revelations about NSA surveillance programs have damaged Obama's standing with the public, although older controversies like the IRS matter may have begun to take their toll as well."
    Obama needs to clean up his act.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I listened to O'reiily for the first time in years it would seem, and his advice to BO was just to come out and explain everything, and be truthful.

    And thats related to Benghazzi, Fast and Furious and the Benghazzi scandal.

    The truth is he CAN'T, because he's neck deep in everyone of these scandals.

    So he will continue yo spiaral down and he'll rake the Democrats with him while attempting every low life trick in the book to pull focus away from the scandals.

    Oh that reminds me of Elijah Cummings attempt to deal with the IRS harrasment Scandal.

    " It's Over"...LOL.

    If there was better evidence to show just how corrupt and how deep that scandal goes I havn't seen it yet. Cummings basically admitted the IRS scandal has WH implications.

    Social justice by any means necessary. The Lefties say HE WON; well someone reminded one of them in another thread.....so did Nixon. Winning doesn't mean he owns the government, he needs to learn a lesson the hard way.

    “…the value system I was raised up with, it really doesn’t side with the Democrats...Some of the things I see happening today, with the entitlement programs, we have to change. We can’t continue doing the things we are doing and survive.”
    Blacks tried the social justice route for almost 50 years, and nothing has changed for them. But getting a couple of guys from Louisianna to see the light, hardly is a fart in a tornado. It's nothing. Black leadership is still stuck on stupid, thinking that promoting a free ride will achieve social acceptance and prosperity for their people. Whites are successful, and blacks think if they do the opposite they'll be succesful too, but in a black way. The right way isn't color coded, and has nothing to do with who invented it. This whole Uncle Tom stuff is all about "not invented here". It's pride....too prideful to try what works. So they try to reinvent the wheel, but instead of a round wheel like the one whites use, they invent a square one (the free ride approach) trying to defy the laws of economics. Any black who wants to use a round wheel is labeled an Uncle Tom and a sell out. Trouble is they won't give it up, and try something different. The model has been right in front of them all along, they just don't like it....... not invented here.

    But back on Obama, look how he achieved success....not with a square wheel.

    I don't see him taking much heat for any of this stuff...but I also don't see him being a very effective President. I don't complain. Come 2014, Republicans will gain in Congress...come 2016, Republicans will get it all. Then it'll be their turn on the hot seat.
