Daily Presidential Approval Index
« on: February 07, 2009, 03:35:18 AM »

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Approval Index for Friday shows that 38% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing as President. That’s the fourth straight day below the 40% level for the President. Prior to that, the number who Strongly Approved had never fallen below 40% for even a single day while Obama was President-elect or President  ...

That graph will cross before long. Yes, Americans are waking up, but they overslept.

No, but the lugnuts are loose.

Even if a few pop off, though, given his support among liberals and blacks, as someone posted a few days ago at CC, his approval ratings likely won't drop below 30 percent or so.

After all, for them not to support him would be racist, wouldn't it?

Perhaps he should get a bus on stilts, just in case.

Then call me racist, because I do not, have not, and will not support him....

Amazing, perhaps 'porkulus/porkzilla' has more resonance than we feared.

That coupled with his glaringly inept handling of the entire episode. First he ceded authorship of the bill to Pelousy who not only eats stuffed pork for breakfast but made overt efforts to exclude the GOP from Obama's "post-partisan era of politics."

Obama himself only made feeble and empty gestures to bring the GOP on board with everything from declaring "I won" to mocking their economic theories and concerns about over-spending.

As to the senate side he is once again the absent father to his baby. If he's a leader nobody can tell because he hasn't done anything of substance...like submit his own version of the bill. All he seems capable of is letting dems write the bill, seeing the GOP isolated then bemoaning the lack of their votes for something they are not invited to write and unneeded to pass.

Nobody likes someone who holds all the power making themself powerless because they beg the indulgence of the powerless. If Obama's bad-mouthing of the GOP during the campaign meant anything why are they suddenly so important when he has all the legislative and executive power on his side?

Americans tolerate many things but "pathetic" is not one of them.

Maybe, but those IDIOTS still are elected and hold the reigns of power, and you need to remember that next time the nominating petition time rolls around.

Peter, I'm an elected Precinct comitteeman.  I busted my balls prior to the caucus, during the caucus, and after the caucus and we still got saddled with Senator Blueballs as the Party's nominee.  I've STILL got teeth marks in my tongue from holding to Ronaldus Magnus' commandment, "Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican", and I'm still lightheaded from holding my breath long enough to pull the Godforsaken lever for that senior Asshat from Arizona.

I did everything in my power to prevent this horrendous travesty from being foisted upon the country my family has called home since before it was a country, and I was still "represented" by a limp-dick pathetic excuse for a political figure, and I still got Barry "Da Fuhrer" 0baaaama thinking he's in charge up there in the center seat.

All of this is because we've got a majority of Americans so woefully uneducated as to who is actually in charge in the United States.  We've got most of 300 million people bending and scraping to the 550 or so "elected leadership" office holders like they were noble Lordships and Ladyships or something, and of course the 550 Asshats in the elected leadership offices are doing nothing to discourage the misunderstanding.

Well, in the immortal words of my 4-year old son, "They're not the boss of me!"  And if I have to completely off the grid, and entirely weapons free to prove it, I will.

Went thru essentially the same thing imediately post Carter! I thought (stupidly) that successfully puting a good, conservative Republican in as Congressman for three terms was enough to help the cause. And what happened? They threw it all away over last 12 years. Here it is district Committeeman, yes, many of us have BTDT, so I saklute you and retract my comments about the matter, we've both suffered more than enough! :cheersmate:

Our past year's electoral politics resemble the world of C. M. Kornbluth's classic SF novella The Marching Morons more than they have at any time in the past, it is increasingly hard to see how we can avoid that sad fate.

I cannot help wonder what it is EXACTLY that the lemmings "approve of" with this President? Now, no generalaties, but SPECIFICALLY they think is so swell? I object to damned near EVERYTHING he has "done" so far.
