President Obama´s favorability rating has reached its highest point since 2009, according to Gallup data released Friday. In a recent tracking poll, the firm finds Obama with a 58 percent positive rating among all Americans — a three point bump from his favorability rating from a survey taken days before the election. The last time Obama´s favorability rating registered his highly was his 66 percent positive rating in July 2009. His highest positive number ever recorded by Gallup was 78 percent — just before his inauguration as president. "Obama now enjoys as positive an image in
Comments: I guarantee you not one conservative was included in that poll. It was probably taken in Philadelphia. I despise him even more now than I did before because I know he´s going to destroy this country. I have no reason to believe otherwise.
The administration/Obama lied to the American people, 4 Americans were murdered, they are dead, they will never see their families again, their children will never see them again. Instead of pussyfooting around this just ask Obama why he lied to the American people?
Does the media just sitting around generating fictitious stories? This is a serious question because I think most of the articles are from an alternate reality. I truly try to read a balanced bunch of news each day, but increasingly find much of what is "news" sounds more like fairy tales. Others must feel this way, too.
I think the huge majority of Americans who are the makers rather the takers are going to become increasingly bitter to have Obama and his corrupt administration foisted upon them for another four long years as they despairingly watch free enterprise destroyed. There is something inherently wrong for people to be able to vote themselves a free ride on the backs of others.
It may be somewhat exaggerated but I believe it is basically true. The election proves it. The thing to keep in mind is that Obama, annoying and dangerous as he is, is not the problem. The dopes who support him are the problem. There are tens of millions of them. If he had lost the election, the dopes would still be supporting him. The best hope is for him to make such a complete mess of things foreign and domestic that enough of his dope supporters will come to their senses. They will have to see the results of his policies with their own eyes - and the results will have to be glaring and painful enough so they cannot be denied or blamed on somebody else. This will take time - though probably not much. Major international complications, violence against Americans, and actual war are the likely results of the administration´s foreign policy. A repeat attack on the American homeland is extremely likely. Business cannot possibly improve or recover under this administration, which doesn´t know how to do anything except expand government. Many Americans, it seems, are slow learners. Obama will help them understand by showing them what results from his misunderstandings. "Nothing," wrote Goethe, "is as terrible as ignorance in action."
I don´t doubt it. Come on, the vast majority of people in this nation have their views, values, opinions, decisions and choices determined by the media. Ask them what is right or wrong, good or evil and their views will be a mirror image of what you see on television. And it gets worse the younger they are.
Parents have turned the lives of their children over to the media (Democrat controlled), schools, (Democrat controlled) and day care centers (most likely Democrats). Obama is a product of the media (and behind the scenes; corporate greed) and this election was not about issues, it was about perception and Obama is a brand, sold by the media and people today are zombies that will buy whatever the media is selling.
Who are they polling (our should I say trolling) for this poll, it must be the 47% that Romney spoke of, and now we know that he was right...Obama attracts only the entitlement generation...no wonder he is so popular...everybody likes a friend who gives you things!!!
POLITICO have you any shame. I have never seen so many people as upset and distraught after an election. The portion of the population that Obama seeks "revenge" on will never accept him. 58% yea right.
As the last election clearly proved, polls will say whatever the person paying for the poll wants it to say.
I´m guessing that, by the time NØbama gets out of office, his approval ratings will be 98%. That is because the only people who will still be able to afford phones will be rich Demon-RAT cronies of the president...
Move over, Kim Jong Un, King Junk Oh´ bummer´s upward trajectory in favorability is going to overtake you soon. Just a matter of time American subjects are forced to bow before Dear Reader´s sainted portraits on gilded pedestals.
Expect President Obama to confirm soon he will attend services in South African for the late Nelson Mandela. Officials have held off on a formal announcement as travel plans, logistics, and security are worked out; services for Mandela will be part of a mourning period in South Africa that will last about 10 days. The South African government has scheduled the state funeral for Dec. 15, a week from Sunday. There is also a memorial service scheduled for Dec. 10, which is Tuesday. In the meantime, Obama has directed that American flags be lowered to half-staff through Monday in honor of the freedom
A Pennsylvania Democrat called President Obama’s economic speech yesterday hosted by the Center for American Progress one of the best speeches ever given by an American leader. Obama called for increasing the minimum wage and decried a wage gap in America, saying reversing the trend is “the defining challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increased inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life and what we stand for around the globe,” he said. Obama also lauded himself as a great leader for pushing through his healthcare law. “You know, Dr
Through the magic combination of Obamacare and the IRS, volunteer firefighters may be considered “employees,” and their volunteer fire departments may be forced to give them healthcare. Or pay penalties that would force them to shut down. The International Association of Fire Chiefs has asked the Internal Revenue Service, which has partial oversight of the law, to clarify if current IRS treatment of volunteer firefighters as employees means their hose companies or towns must offer health insurance coverage or pay a penalty if they don’t. The organization representing the fire chiefs has been working on the issue with the IRS
Pollak said that because of Mandela´s embrace of reconciliation, a South Africa many thought was going to "erupt into a racial civil war" transitioned from apartheid peacefully. He also said that Mandela later rejected the violent aspects of the African National Congress and the more socialist aspects of his past and ended up obeying the constitution. Pollak said Mandela even "subjected himself to the will of the courts" while he was in power to set an example that he was not above the constitution. And like George Washington, Mandela, Pollak noted, accepted the constraints put on him and stepped down
HOUSTON - Is Katherine Sebelius trading her tailored suit for flowing black robes of death? The Independent Payment Advisory Board, or the Obamacare Death Panels, are the reason that Kathleen Sebelius, current secretary of Health and Human Services cannot be fired for the absolute disaster of the Obamacare roll out. Under Obamacare, the decision on what Medicare will, and won’t, pay for rests with the Head of Health and Human Services, and note it is ‘Health and Human‘ not ‘Health and Humane‘ Services. As head of HHS, she can, without oversight, make what ever decision she wants over your health care
Former President Jimmy Carter adviser Pat Caddell said the shocking Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report that found President Barack Obama has held no one-on-one meetings with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare has revealed Obama´s "inexperience in handling crisis." Appearing on Fox News´ Cavuto Thursday, Caddell discussed the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report that found that since Obamacare was signed on March 23, 2010, Obama met with "various Cabinet secretaries a total of 277 times" while not meeting alone with Sebelius. In the public record, there was just "one instance of Secretary Sebelius meeting jointly with
The comparison is so crude as to be laughable, but given the mainstream media´s immediate linkage of the two, and President Barack Obama´s insistence on talking about himself in his eulogy for Nelson Mandela, it must be said: Obama is no Mandela. For one thing, their societies are different: the U.S. bears no resemblance to post-apartheid South Africa. For another, Mandela chose to govern differently from Obama in many key respects. 1. Mandela was a uniter, Obama is a divider. Mandela was not above playing racial politics at times, but generally did all he could to bring people together, in
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
