Heckuva job, Obama! Americans
jeer the president’s performance

Washington Times, by David Sherfinski

President Obama’s approval rating has sunk to 37 percent in a new poll released Wednesday — the lowest of his presidency — and his disapproval rate is at 57 percent, a new high for him in CBS News polls. His approval rating has dropped 9 points since October, according to the CBS News poll. Approval of his health care overhaul, commonly known as Obamacare, is now at an all-time low of 31 percent and disapproval is at 61 percent, a high for the poll, as his administration scrambles to deal with the fallout from a rocky rollout of major parts

I wish I could see Obama´s plunging poll numbers as a positive but I don´t. The reason is it´s taken 5 years and a huge government induced catastrophe to wake millions of people up for a president who´s been an utter and complete failure on every other aspect of his job.

Obama hasn´t lost any core support even if a few leftists are sore about getting stung by Obamacare.Polls are showing people support his Iran deal which is a huge red flag to me.

There´s a lot of people who have the equivalent of battered wife syndrome who may be mad at Obama right now but will eventually cave and crawl back to him.They´re going to manufacture a battle over food stamps in the farm bill and budget fights.

#1, I´ve been trying to think of another instance where government has induced such trauma on American society.

Perhaps the run-up to the Civil War, but that only resulted in 4 years of hell and about 560,000 deaths.

Prohibition? Prohibition was a piker compared to Obamacare.

The soft tyranny of surging taxes, suffocating regulations and loss of God-given freedoms? Not close.

Obamacare is the equivalent of the nation picking up an old board loaded with rusty nails and banging in our faces repeatedly. We´re supposed to respond with, "Thank you sir, may I have another" after each blow.

Don´t count Obama down and out. The progressives will do anything to keep their agenda rolling along. They have shown they are capable of just about anything in order to get their way. They are not going to slink off with their tail between their legs.

#3, I´ve been trying to figure out who these 37% could be. It truly astonishes me that he has that many people who still approve of his job performance. I´ve come up with this breakdown, maybe you have some other thoughts.

- his approval among African-Americans is still around 90%

- many people I know with investments in the stock market couldn´t care less about anything except the money Obama is making them on Wall Street

- many young people, skulls still full of mush, remain brainwashed

With the msm still in his corner, he will never be down and out. The same reason he was elected twice and the same reason we will probably have another socialist president in 2018. The msm carries the biggest stick in this battle.

Silver linings etc: not even the most ardent Obama apologist is claiming this is the lowest it will go. Some are claiming it´s an ´opportunity,´ whatever that means, but few are foolish enough to think this trend won´t continue.

A number in the 20s may be a bridge too far given the demographics but it would certainly be historic for our historic(ally bad) Little Lord Fauntleroy.

I have to think this Obamacare catastrophe has legs even with the "fix". When the government taxes people to the bone it tends to have a negative affect (duh) especially when they get nothing in return. The economic ripple affects will be staggering in 2014. This ain´t going away.

I don´t care what his poll numbers are as long as demoncrats in congress keep running away from him, the demoncrat "brand" is in the toilet and Americans are mad as hell and looking for revenge in 2014.

If demoncrats have any sense of self preservation, they will force him to resign.

Panic is setting in for sure. I expect more calculated, yet emotional, outbursts like Martin Bashir´s attack on Sarah Palin. Virtually no one on the left is condemning him, including Emir Buraq and the ownership of MSNBC.

Without a doubt MSNBC is now the official propaganda outlet of the left. Politico handles the online chores. They are the enemy and should be treated as such.

They will all circle their wagons around their ideology first, Obama second. I don´t know where this will lead but Obama should consider extending his Hawaii vacation.

Every day is some new outrage or revelation about this regime and The Won.

The headline brought back memories of Katrina as it was designed to do. President Bush did not deserve the disapproval the MSM hung around his neck. Katrina was an act of God that no one could have controlled. Obamacare/Healthcare.gov is purely a man-made catastrophe and is all the fault of Obama and Democrats. The only way Obama and the Dems can save their bacon (reputations) is to repeal Obamacare. It won´t happen, because of arrogance and an evil desire to control a nation.

We may have to fight a second Civil War. Isn´t it quite telling that Obama didn´t go to Gettysburg for the 150th celebration? There won´t be any school children reciting any great speech that Obama has ever given - he is not an inspiring man.

Look for more Democrats to be sponsoring bill to make changes to Obamacare. I say this because last night I was called by a very long, detailed poll about Obamacare that just had to be sponsored by the Democrats. There were a lot of questions on how various changes to the law might effect my support as well as how likely I was to vote next year.

This was a very expensive poll to conduct as they asked not just for my opinion on a five point scale from strongly disapprove to strongly approve but they also asked for my opinion in my own words and transcribed extended comments.

I´ve never been one who bought into the notion that black people were uneducated, dumb and stupid.

Then #7 posted this: "- his approval among African-Americans is still around 90%"

Perhaps I should reevaluate my thinking. They are certainly proving me wrong.

I hope Chief Justice Roberts is proud of his decision. He could have stopped this nightmare. Instead he chose to protect the secret of his illegally adopted children that is not a secret anymore. Obama made him change his vote by blackmail. If you do not believe me google it.

Cruz tried to do something about this and I thank him for what he did. We need a lot of people like him in the Congress to stop this nightmare. Where are they?

The fact is that the Tyrant doesn´t have to win a new election so his popularity isn´t much of a factor. It is the Democrats in the Senate and House that need to suffer the consequences of their support for the Tyrant and ObamaCare. If things go well there are plenty of crimes that justify impeachment of the Tyrant. We may have to suffer through 2 years of President Biden, but it´s worth it in order to remove and punish the Tyrant.

On the subject of the impact of Katrina on Bush´s polls, I agree the negative press was underdeserved. But look at Bush´s polling history, which can be tracked on the Gallup site. He dropped to mid 30´s after Katrina. He recovered slightly and then plummeted again when the Iraq war went south. It was the war and not Katrina that was the catalyst for Obama. Keep in mind that to date, the Iraq War (once described by retired General Anthony Zinni as "brain fart") has claimed the lives of nearly 8,000 U.S. service members and contractors and is projected to cost the U.S. Treasury more than two trillion dollars. It was a neocon fuster-cluck and I am convinced that if Romney did not sound like a neocon in 2012 he might have won

I wonder about Bart Stupak. You know the one vote needed to pass 0bamacare. The person who was told about an "executive order" in the bill re abortion. I think he was on FNC recently. He should feel like a real sucker. Believing the story about that "executive order." I wonder if he still thinks his vote was correct. I just wonder. A nearby yard arm would be appropriate for Mr. Stupak.

LSM just can´t hide Obamacare from the masses unlike what they have been doing for all the other illegal doings of Obama. If the masses had been informed of the truth from the start these numbers would have dropped a long time ago. Many people still need to learn the rest of the Obama´s crimes and when they do learn of them these numbers will get lower.

As much of a problem Obozo is for the country, don´t forget Dingy Harry and San Fran Nan. Somehow, those two control the dims to a degree that is unbelievable. I have a hard time believing that they can get the entire Dim Senate Caucus and the overwhelming majority of the House Dim members to vote exactly as they are told to. Don´t any of these people have any morals or thoughts as how certain legislation will effect the majority of Americans? Or do they just take the "shut up and do as your told" path.

As usual, #1 writes a great analysis of the situation.

For every one of us who have seen a naked emperor since 2008, there are two people who still live under the hope ´n change cabbage leaf. Making excuses for obama has become an art form.

He has failed, miserably. Our main concern now is that he will let his anger get the best of him and attempt to implement his radical agenda by force - at gunpoint. We may be putting our Second Amendment and God-given rights of self protection to use before we know it. Keep ´em in the bullseye and keep an eye out for the brownshirts.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
