Obama’s approval drops as
Americans take a dimmer view
of his economic policies

Washington Post, by Jon Cohen & Karen Tumulty

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/13/2013 6:25:44 AM

The afterglow of President Obama’s reelection and inauguration appears to have vanished as increasingly negative views among Americans about his stewardship of the economy have forced his public approval rating back down to the 50 percent mark, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. In December, just after he won a second term, Obama held an 18-percentage-point advantage over congressional Republicans on the question of whom the public trusted more to deal with the economy. Now, it’s a far more even split — 44 percent to 40 percent, with a slight edge for the president — but the

I think not caving in on the sequester has changed the republican´s fortunes Reaming more taxes out of people has come to a screeching halt.

Obama´s refusal to accept economic growth as a budget solution is finally sinking in with people.Only 5% of the country´s employers plan on hiring in the 2nd quarter.

Oh, you mean the economic policies that have been bankrupting this country for the last 4 years? The obvious is finally setteling in for the LoFo/MoFo´s? Will wonders never cease??

I don´t believe the 50% approval statement.
Not unless the conducted the poll in the ´hood, or at SEIU headquarters, or at a government office building.
I accuse WaPo & ABC of lying.
I really doubt Stinky´s approval levels are even 40%

Those who work and pay into social security got a little tax hike. They´re feeling a little of the pain inflicted by this man on the rest of the country. With half not paying income taxes they often didn´t see how much he was costing us; now they do.

Obama cares as much about approval ratings as he does the constitution, court rulings against his actions, or the dead ambassador in Benghazi. He won reelection. The "fundamental transformation of America" is on course, and now its time for the golf course.

None of this means a thing. His level of support has a floor in the mid-40´s beneath which it cannot fall. And even if it were to, what would that mean to him? Zilch, nada.

The country is screwed, and that´s all there is to it.

Let´s see---------the Main Stream Media carry almost nothing negative so unless the populace watches Fox, listens to talk radio or reads the Wall Street Journal, they will soon again fall prey to the Charm Offensive by that "nice Black man with the smile and the kids." That´s how people like Harry Reid can get away with saying the Dems never filibustered---when they actually did so constantly and savaged Bush´s nominees, or that Obama can say oil and gas production are way up without bothering to mention that it is on PUBLIC lands. "Journalists" have a LOT to answer for and I don´t know how they can hold their heads up.

Raising taxes is the Democrat´s solution to all economic problems. The real working tax paying private sector Americans can´t pay any more. You can´t squeeze blood out of a turnip. America would have been on it´s way to recovery if Romney had been elected.

Polls usually bring out the skeptic in me. Are they better than nothing? Oh, I suppose so.

Even without basing it on some poll, I’m pretty certain Obama is a slow learner in urgent need of a course in Remedial Thinking.

If the Republicans are ever going to stand strong and fight it should be now. There has to be unity and a single message. If this does not happen, it won´t matter if Obama´s poll numbers are in the 20´s. The old bulls in the party had better take heed and get on the bus or they will be left behind. If this country has a chance at all, the establishment must be persuaded to fight the biggest threat to this country´s future with the conservatives or all is lost. There is a solution but it does not lie with the status quo. If the party came together, determined to lead, with a clear and concise message delivered in a media blitz, it would be a game changer. We will see who is committed to saving the country and who is interested in politics as usual.

Somebody should tell Rasmussen to stop polling Obama´s staff because his approval rating is constantly at 51%. I´m convinced these pollster´s sole purposes are to confuse the public and make money, because their results have no relationship to anything living or dead.

A close-to-50% approval rate is still far too high for a man who set out to destroy this economy and this Constitution.

This country´s younger generations need to get educated about the dangers of Obama´s kind of dictatorial and coercive politics. If they don´t know how O is hurting them, they will continue to view him as simply a rich and powerful celebrity.

They must connect him to their own miserable fiscal state of affairs or he will wreak more havoc than he´s already done.

He´s below that number -- many times over.

And Barry has no interest in balancing the budget now! Hopefully the drones will start to see that he does not care. Mark Levin had a lib call in last night telling him to tax every Wall St. transaction 1% (actually screaming at him) but he educated her that the unfunded entitlements are 6 times the total economy and she still could not get it that even if you took everything from everyone - you still could not do it.

Can´t figure out what the voters liked so much about the way he was running (make that ruining) the economy the first four years, that they wanted another four of the same.

The dip now in his approval record means little, the media will jerk it right back up with photo ops of our own Papa Doc hugging his dog.

I´m always struck by how many times I´ve heard that Obama´s approval rating is tanking, but it never ever dips below about 44%. It usually hangs closer to 50% no matter what our incompetent Boob-In-Chief does. This guy is the REAL "Teflon Don". My head is about to explode.

We have no brains and I must scream.

if your only policies are to tax and spend and you are not in the group being taxes but in the group that is benifiting from the spending then why not approve of zero.

I think one solution to some of the problems we face is to raise social security taxes by 50% and medicare taxes by 100% . I know this is extreme but it would at least get the 47% who pay no income taxes to pay something......we might call it their fair share.

There was a time in my life, when I was young and still in high school, I was taught about how the founders and writers of the Constitution set up our government. They forsaw men with foresight a deep thinking as a way to overcome any problems the country might occur. Nowadays, however, all we have is public "opinion" polls. And politicians only go around sproutig out the "polls" say this or say that. So, that is how they will make their decisions concerning any subject.

Has anyone in today´s educational system ever read the Federalist Papers? Or the Constlitution itself? Does anyone remember what James Madison had to say about decision making in government? About how critical thinking needs to be used and not passion of the day? These are questions I have to answers to. And it´s sad to see where a once powerful and mighty country is headed. The one thing I have to look forward to is I won´t be around that muchs too longer to have to see it.

The republicans should insist that any tax increases be distributed directly proportionally to everyones income. 10 percent increase means everyone pays 10 percent. Those that live off of the gov should have their benefits reduced.

Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) is demanding answers from Attorney General Eric Holder on the Justice Department’s pursuit of “smart gun” technology, warning that the government could require all gun owners to wear biometric bracelets to operate their firearms. Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

Today’s IRS Documents:

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
