CNN: Obama doesn’t get to 50% approval … on anything

Hot Air

That analysis comes from CNN’s John King, who notes that Barack Obama has had some, er, problems connecting with the public in his second term. In the poll released yesterday, CNN asked respondents for opinions on twelve issues, and Obama didn’t get to 50% on a single one — but had majority disapproval for all but two:

In fact, his overall approval rating in the CNN series has barely budged from the announcement over a year ago that the IRS had targeted Obama’s political opponents in Tea Party organizations. It’s also about the same time that whistleblowers emerged to dispute the White House/State Department narrative on Benghazi, too. At that point, CNN had Obama’s job approval rating at 53/45, roughly where it had been since his re-election. It hasn’t been above 45% since.

Only on environmental policy did Obama register a positive reaction, but it’s mighty thin at 49/45. He scored 49/49 on terrorism, but most of the poll was conducted before Americans found out that Obama released five of the most dangerous Taliban figures from Guantanamo Bay — and did so illegally. Don’t expect that number to remain balanced for long, in other words. On issues closer to the midterm focus, Obama performs abysmally:

  • Economy – 38/61, down from 43/56 in September
  • Health care – 36/63, was 42/55
  • Foreign affairs – 40/57, same
  • Helping the middle class – 40/58, was not asked in September
  • The VA – 37/58 (new)
  • Ukraine – 38/53 (new)

The economy will be the real danger area for Democrats in the midterms, especially those running in red and purple states, and so will health care. Those are the top two issues respondents named for the most important issue in the country, 40% and 19% respectively — and they used to be Democratic Party strengths. The White House wants to talk about the environment and immigration, but neither of them even reach double digits on the priority list CNN gets from its survey.

This is the price of incompetence, and this was before the Bergdahl disaster. It’s left the White House and its Democrat allies no room to pivot anywhere. As King and his panel conclude, it’s not so much disagreement on the issues as it is a vote of no confidence in the man who’s implementing them.

 

Report: Obama Spent $770 Million in Taxpayer Funds to Rebuild and Renovate Mosques Overseas

by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

A CBS news investigation found that the Obama State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas — outraging taxpayer advocates and raising enormous questions about aid to potentially  terror-supporting groups with U.S. foreign aid.

With constant battles over cutting spending in the budget — including slashing pensions for military veterans, the United States ‘investment’ of millions to refurbish mosques as a ‘good-will effort’ in Muslim countries has upset many.

Rioting Across the US During the Great Depression (Video) – This Explains Obama’s 1.6 Billion Bullet Buy

Gateway Pundit

The last time we had a president this daft and an economy this bad there was rioting across America. This video was taken during the Great Depression of the 1930′s. Via Daily Bail:

Maybe this explains why the Obama Administration found it necessary to buy 1.6 billion bullets, or sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times – including all of the illegal immigrants.

To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, DHS is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war.

Obama’s Calculated Deception

The American Spectator

Calculated Deception. That is the central theme of the Obama campaign. Calculated Deception is the term I use for Obama’s rhetorical practice of trying to take advantage of what he calculates the average person does not know, and his party-controlled, so-called mainstream media won’t report. And that can be seen over and over in the Obama campaign.

Charlie Daniels Column: Mr. President, When It Comes to Business, You Haven’t a Clue

NewsBusters

Charlie Daniels Column:

Mr. Obama,

You recently made a statement to the effect that, ”If you have a business  you didn’t build it, you had help” inferring that the federal government helped  build our businesses by virtue of paving roads and building bridges and keeping  the nation safe from foreign invasion.

First of all, Mr. Obama, if I’m going to take advice about business it will  not be from somebody who has had absolutely no business experience like  yourself.

Barack Has a Record

American Thinker

Every  Obama speech is fraught with lies and half-truths.  He relies on his belief  in the ignorance of his audience, and that Americans are too lazy and soft to  recognize his dishonesty.  When your record is abysmal, you can’t tell the  truth.

Obama,  hasn’t a clue on how to fix the economy.  Instead, without ideas, he copied  Teddy Roosevelt’s 100-year-old speech in Osawatomie.  With Barack Obama, it’s always  yesterday’s answers to today’s problems…and this is the man they told us was a  genius.  The president maintains that the rich get richer by making  everyone poorer.  Ah…bitterness and envy, the illegitimate stepchildren  of hope and change.

White House Stands Behind New Job-Killing Air Rules That Will Kill Thousands of Jobs & People – Media Stands Silent

Gateway Pundit

Worst. President. Ever.
The Obama White House told reporters they will proceed with new EPA rules that will shut down 8% of all US power generation.  The latest move by the EPA will affect 26 states.

New EPA rules will force Western coal-fired power plants to install haze-reducing pollution-control equipment at a cost of $1.6 billion a year. Pictured is the Dave Johnston Power Plant in Glenrock, Wyoming. (IBD)

The White House said they will stand behind their new job-killing air rules that will totally devastate the Texas economy and put thousands of lives at risk.  The White House cited their own bogus study insisting that closing the power plants will save 34,000 lives each year.  (What rubbish!)  They are using this lie to push their devastating policies on the people of Texas.  They would rather see thousands of Texans die in the sweltering summer heat when their power goes out.
The AP reported:
