Obama favorability
reaches three-year high

Politico, by Byron Tau

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/16/2012 6:45:24 PM

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...

Everyone in politics knows that big GOP donors, many of whom are wealthy businessmen, are, broadly speaking, one of the key constituencies for a major amnesty bill. But aside from the money trail, their interactions with lawmakers, which often occur at intimate closed-door fundraisers, can be hard to track. Enter Michael Simmonds, a restaurant entrepreneur in Omaha and a lifelong donor to Republican candidates in Nebraska. Simmonds has launched a behind-the-scenes crusade to push the candidates he´s supporting to back what he describes as “complete amnesty.” “I am applying a litmus test even it keeps me from supporting any

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa has penned a personal, scathing letter to his Democratic counterpart on the House oversight committee, escalating the public feud between the two high-ranking lawmakers amid the committee´s investigation into IRS targeting. The letter to Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., top Democrat on that committee, was obtained by Fox News. In it, Issa countered, point by point, a series of claims that Cummings and two legal experts made earlier this week about whether former IRS official Lois Lerner could be held in contempt for refusing to testify. Issa went further, effectively accusing Cummings of running

WASHINGTON — A deep-pocketed group of Republican donors and former GOP lawmakers is joining a gay rights coalition to push the U.S. House to vote on a bill banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. "America is a place where the freedom to be who you are shouldn´t be a barrier to your ability to get a job and provide for your family," said Paul Singer, a billionaire hedge fund founder and big Republican donor.

The only reason to think President Obama would work with a Republican congressional majority is that he genuinely believes a policy is a good idea or thinks public opinion requires a compromise necessary to protect his legacy and keep the White House in Democratic hands. In other words, Republicans have reason to hope, but they shouldn’t expect too much change—at least not until 2017. McConnell’s assessment of what Republicans can accomplish the next two years will strike his fans as Madisonian realism, but it will come across as establishmentarian weakness to his detractors who are now waging a bitter primary

President Obama met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in the Oval Office last night to discuss how to move forward on immigration reform, with one caucus member saying afterward that their pleas for executive action were heard. The meeting came after Obama threatened to veto two bills that passed in the House – the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014, which puts in place a procedure that would expedite the ability of Congress to sue the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws, and the Faithful Execution of the Law Act of 2014, which expands the number

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday.

Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co. BA -0.99% 777´s engines as part of a routine maintenance and monitoring program. That raises

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans." One fashion faux pas at the 2009 MLB All-Star baseball game was a costly learning experience, he added. "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching and I think I’ve paid

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman. Issa wields the gavel at the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is probing the Internal Revenue Service controversy and Benghazi, among other hot issues. “[I]t seems that Chairman Issa is more

Scientists who don´t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming should be put in prison, a US philosophy professor argues on a website funded by the UK government.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid renewed his crusade against the Koch brothers Thursday, and demanded that Republicans disavow the two men who have spent tens of millions of dollars to back conservative causes. “Is even one of you — is even one of you — willing to stand up and disavow the Koch brothers’ agenda?” Mr. Reid demanded on the Senate floor as he opened Thursday’s session. It’s the latest installment in what’s becoming a frequent attack by Mr. Reid on David and Charles Koch, two of the wealthiest men in America. Mr. Reid led off his weekly press availability

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are

In an interview with Vocativ.com, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) expressed a desire for factions within the Republican Party to “agree to disagree” on hot-button social issues so that the GOP tent may expand to include more young people and alternative viewpoints. Asked whether the general consensus at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference was that the party must butt out of social issues, Paul replied: I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues. The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people
