A devastating poll on Obama
--- and Obamacare

Washington Examiner, by Michael Barone

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 11/17/2013 7:29:07 PM

“The Affordable Care Act’s political position has deteriorated dramatically over the last week.” That, coming from longtime Obamacare cheerleader and Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein, was pretty strong language. And it was only Wednesday. That was the day after the release of a devastating Quinnipiac national poll. It showed Barack Obama’s approval rating at 39 percent, with his disapproval rating at 54 percent — sharply down from 45 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval on Oct. 1, the day the government shutdown began and healthcare.gov went into (limited) operation. Democrats hoped that Republicans would take a shellacking in public opinion for the

On the good side, he retains overwhelming support from welfare queens, gay pride marchers, hollywood airheads, convicted sex offenders, ivy league professors, unmarried fat chicks with tattoos, and the American media.

Sorry, but in a month this frauds approval will be over 50. The sycophant media will be in full protection mode. Be ready for every sort of desperate move they´re going to make. We will probably start nearing things like "Enron", villainous Dick Cheney stories, you get the idea. This fraud WILL survive. And Obamacare will too. Sadly, to this once great country´s detriment.

FTA: It says it will provide subsidies for those buying insurance through the federal health care exchanges in 36 states — even though the legislation nowhere authorizes that.

By any chance are those 36 states BLUE states?? Tyranny. Tyranny.

There was another poll that may be more devastating as it had Obie´s approval at 39 among registered voters, not likely. If things get much worse for him, it would be a good time to push for the big "I"

Doesnt matter what the polls show. ObamaCare remains the law off the land, Obama wields the veto pen and the ability to churn out executive edicts faster than Hershey can roll out kisses. What this does portend is a democrat shellacking in 2014.

Just like last year´s Hurricane Sandy that drew attention away from Bengazi just days before the election, today´s tornados will give Obama the chance to run out to Illinois and act like he cares. The media can now put the "keep your plan" lies to bed. Obama seems to be the luckiest man on the planet. It´s just that so much death and misery have to happen to the American people.

I never believe polls regarding the presidents "approval" ratings. Too many variables to trust. I always believe whatever number they state is really way lower. Look at it like the. The A. C. Act is neither affordable or caring. Just the title of this monstrosity is a lie right from the gitgo. So take all the polls you want. He is still a lying liar, the Democrats lie and the entire thing is a scam and ponzi scheme. is trust factor is probably in the low single digits. No one trusts this liar anymore. Now everyone is mad as hell and payback time is on the way.

Obama´s poll numbers in my family have been in the single digits since 2008 along with the rest of the people in this country who didn´t buy what this con man was selling. Obama is the biggest fraud that has ever been perpetrated on this country. Wake up America, you have been duped! The man´s past is hidden, his present is a failure, and his future as the worst president in modern times is assured.

For all pols, 70% is 100% and 30% is 0%, since there are about 30% hard partisans on both sides who simply will not cheer for the other side. With Obama, his floor is a little higher because the fear of being thought a racist pushing some stated opinions into the approval column that would otherwise be negative. So Obama´s approval numbers might be just about as low as they could possibly be right now.

In my household, Obama´s poll numbers caused a sonic boom as they passed Hillary´s +13 (elderly Aunt with Alzheimer) and past zero into the negative region while his campaign was still going on. They temporarily stopped a -9 but have steadily crawled downward and now rests at -65 -- same number as the running number of lies he has told during his pResidency. May it´s only a coincidence?

FTA "The Framers of the Constitution regarded refusal to faithfully execute the law as tyranny."

Without the msm/public educational unions Obama would never have been elected President and certainly never have been reelected.

All major scandals have been dropped, ineffectively investigated, ignored and for the msm forgotten. They will crucify any Republican who might become popular with the voters or any idea that makes sense for the country. They are socialist, as are the unions teaching our children.

This largest of all scandals, if the msm can figure a way, will be only a foot note in Obe´s resume by the fall election. Soon, very soon, they will find a none story on some Republican or conservative issue and in unison make a huge deal out of it. It has always worked for them.

A poll for this a poll for that.
Polls don´t mean a thing. It´s all demographics. If you poll in New York or Washington state there are RINOs who will say good things about Obama.
In my circle Obama is in the negative range and never was above zero.
Polls are a lie and unreliable. If you want a poll you could poll just crack pipe addicts and get Obama´s numbers up. See how easy that is.

Looks like some pessimists are cruising today: never die supporters/race wars, etc. I am out there in the trenches fighting with Obama supporters most every day. The responses usually are fast, vile, are frequently lies, just anything to say something back, no matter how ludicrous, especially near election 2012. Since last Monday, Nov 11, however, the resistance has been little if any. It´s only been symbolic here and there. We have turned a corner. The Obama army of supporters is dissolving. There is nothing left to defend anymore. Remember he is tampering with people´s healthcare, has yanked it, left them in the gray area, wondering what is going on. In the old days Obama would have been tar and feathered, run out of town: major infraction. Even still, there is no good outlook-now they say his ACA website won´t make his own Nov 1 deadline. He is toast.
BTW: the hammer in the toolbox comparison some clever Lucianner came up with way back is very effective for those who play the race card. There are never any more statements by Obama supporters after that accurate counter-response.

#25 is correct and the doomgloomers need a new mantra soon. My entirely unscientific but telling survey of moonbat acquaintance posts on FaceBook - and living as I do in the People´s State I am connected to many moonbats - shows the demoralization. There had not been a single moonbat defense of OCare until yesterday, when someone posted that "right-wingers" are sabotaging the web site. Ha ha ha! They are very quiet otherwise.

#1 I believe the MSM is still responsible for 10% of that margin; they are the ones who keep the lo-infos in the dark. Therefore his approval rating is probably below 1/3 and those who still do support him refuse to admit they are, and always have been, wrong.

It´s one thing for the MSM to support, defend and make excuses for Obama, as they have done since he was first elected president. We all know this is not the purpose of a free press in a free society.

It´s quite another to protect ´him´ by withholding evidence of his misdeeds, underhanded and behind-closed-doors directives, decisions and policies. The MSM have worked diligently to keep much of ´the truth´ from us (America´s citizens whom the president should serve). They´ve propped up Obama, his ´aura´ and his ego and apparently have done their best to keep us in the dark - while trashing and eviscerating those who tell us the truth. This is evil, chilling, arrogant and unforgivable in America, or in any free society.

My thanks and admiration go to all those who have spoken up against this monstrous disservice to America, and as a result have suffered vitriolic and vicious attacks, personally and professionally, and even financially.

He had to serve a second term to complete his socialization of the USA.Currupting the IRS he employed Chicago Mob style tactics to deny the opposition their ability to show the electorate their political point of view.

As for leftist liberoid radical nutjobs...
and their reactions to this latest debacle...
heard one of them the other day casually refer to visiting the website once
it´s been corrected or updated... they made the problems seem as serious as
when the newspaper is delivered two hours later than normal...
In other words, they pretend this is all too inconsequential to matter at all...
everything is still just business as usual to them.

(These particular people are notorious for being totally out of touch with reality...
they are Trayvon supporters, etc, and pro-socialist, pro-communist)

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan. "I´ve been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day." Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia.

Crimea is in Moscow’s hands. Some of Kiev’s army has surrendered parts of eastern Ukraine without a fight. And now there are signs that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have picked his next targets: First a small breakaway state in Moldova, west of Ukraine, where thousands of Moscow’s troops are already stationed; then its close neighbor Odessa, Ukraine’s third-largest city and its largest remaining port, where pro-Russian and pro-government groups are tangling. If forces loyal to Putin can successfully disrupt Odessa, it could effectively cut the county of Ukraine in two.

Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
