Obama favorability
reaches three-year high

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.

Who really cares!!!!!!!!!!!!

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?

This is hard to believe. 0bama does not have high favorability around here and in fact the entire Show Me state majority vote went to Romney as did Kansas.

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.

And we wonder why??

Rasmussen has had the faux potus at 53% and 54% so it must be true. The man has done nothing but party, golf, make photo op appearances and take softball questions from the disgusting cowardly press.

Greedy takers are thrilled that he is still preaching the campaign theme of "tax the rich". The man has tapped into envy and hate like no other leader in my lifetime.

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...

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 recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

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. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

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.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."
