David Plouffe Predicts Obama’s
Approval Rating Will Recover:
‘People Trust This President’

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/1/2013 5:38:10 PM

Former Obama advisor David Plouffe appeared on This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning and predicted that President Barack Obama’s approval rating would rise over the next few months, following the increasing functionality of the Affordable Care Act. “This has been a tough task,” Plouffe said. “It’s not just health care. The shutdown affected everybody’s confidence in government. But let’s fast-forward to the State of the Union and the months after that. Health care working better, a lot of people signing up. The economy continuing to strengthen. Hopefully no Washington shutdowns.

Comments:
I´m so very weary of vile little crapweasels like Plouffe who want us to believe their lies and propaganda. He really makes my skin crawl.

1. Knows it all;
2. Is never wrong;
3. Thinks the truth is optional;
4. Dislikes America;
5. Likes all enemies of America;
6. Keeps majority of his past life secret from Americans;
7. Is a disciple of Saul Alinsky;

18. Unprecedented unawareness and refusal to take real responsibility for what happens on his watch;
19. Braggart, boaster, egotist, narcissist;
20. Blames others for his mistakes and shortcomings;

I can see it as a possibility... in the short term ... before the waivers on Ocare expire then all bets are off. The Lofos are capable of pure delusion, as in he will pay my mortgage. He can take a leak on them and tell them it´s rain and they will go for it. Right now they are scared they will have to pay. Once he tells them enough lies - like now, where he claims Ocare is fixed or the Repubs fix it for him or he finds another way to kick the can - it may go up for a while, at least until after the elections. Then facing 2016, Hill will tell them she has a fix and it will start all over again. It´s possible. Three more years of this and I already have a headache.

Plouffe is right. Lightbringer´s polls will go up again, based on upcoming White House/MSM fabrications, distractions and cover-ups, enabled by a GOP still deathly afraid of exposing the sham. 2014, 2015 and 2016 - who could doubt that the White House/MSM spin machine will exploit his remaining years in power to make sure Lightbringer is once again God of the gods on Mount Olympus? Of course Plouffe is right.

Saying the shutdown rattled people is an absurd lie.The workers probably double dipped on unemployment and back pay and in some cases taking vacation pay.Every other check went out on time.We didn´t get the unemployment numbers which are cooked anyway.Obama went to another state to play golf,so he wasn´t affected.

What´s going on here is setting the scenes for the next budget fight where Obama will demand big billions and the republicans won´t be able to shut the gov´t down again.

Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been very vocal about how CBS pushed back on reports she did critical of the Obama administration. On CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday, Attkisson went after both her former network and Media Matters; the former for muzzling stories and the latter for targeting her. Attkisson has repeatedly argued that while CBS didn’t really get in her way when it came to covering issues critical of George W. Bush, bus when it came to the same with President Obama, she was called a “troublemaker” and sensed a chilling effect for journalists everywhere. CBS responded today in a

President Obama´s hoop shooting ability appears to be improving slightly, if his showing at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll is any indication. The commander in chief, a basketball fanatic, hit one out of three shots in front of a crowd of children Monday at the 136th annual event on the south lawn of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. After missing the first two shots, Obama was able to get the ball through the net on his third try, according to pool reports.

Members of the intelligence community are now forbidden from unapproved contact with reporters, according to a memo issued last month by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The March directive, obtained by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) Project on Government Secrecy, says members of the intelligence community “must obtain authorization for contacts with the media” regarding intelligence matters. While the directive refers to intelligence matters, it makes no distinction between classified or unclassified information. The memo forbids unauthorized “contact with the media about intelligence-related information, including intelligence sources, methods, activities, and judgments (hereafter, ‘covered matters’).”

The United States has released $1 billion in cash assets to Iran in April alone under the interim nuclear deal aimed at ratcheting back Iran’s nuclear program, according to the White House. The Obama administration unfroze Iranian assets totaling $550 million on April 10 and another $450 million on April 15. The United States has now released $2.55 billion to Iran since February, when the scheduled cash infusions first began. The cash releases were contingent upon Iran halting some aspects of its nuclear program and scaling back its stockpiles of highly enriched uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon. In return, Iran

Chicago public schools are set to introduce a new Afro-centric curriculum, according to a closely-guarded copy obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The curriculum covers kindergarten through tenth grade and is designed to align with Common Core. It includes a web link to TheAfrican.com, a website whose publisher decries “fake-Jews” and calls the United States a “Zionist-occupied enemy territory.” The site also claims that the world will end sometime this year and that President Barack Obama is “merely another trick of [the beast of the 4th Kingdom].” The new Chicago curriculum was announced last December.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
