Meanwhile, Obama´s Job Approval
Rating Sinks Back Into The 30´s

Independent Journal Review, by Mike Miller

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/18/2014 5:28:43 AM

Bad news for the White House: The percentage of Americans who approve of the way Barack Obama is handling his job has dropped back into the 30s, according to the latest poll results from Gallup. Over the three-day period that ended Wednesday, 39 percent of Americans now approve of Obama’s performance as President of the United States. One wonders what impact Obama’s recent “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” declaration, in which he vowed to use every tool at his disposal – principally, the executive order – to circumvent the U.S. Congress to implement his agenda, will have

This must be a knife in the heart to a guy with the largest ego ever put on display. That ego is probably the least deserved ever, too.

The Democrats’ problems are serious – more serious than is indicated by Obama’s 39% approval rating. One of the indicators is that the knowledgeable Democrats know they will not take the House in 2014. George Miller, a Democrat and the ranking member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce is from a safe district in California. He would be in line for a committee chairmanship if the Democrats took the House. He has decided to retire.

Obie could care less what his numbers are these days. The dim intelligencia is already kniving how to fool us (the sheep and the election sitter-outers, really) again via the msm to steal the 2014 and 2016 election. But, it´s up to us to tear down this wall and put this progressive cancer on the run for a hundred years.

Obama´s approval rating could be in single digits and you would not see one change in the way he conducts himself or the policies he sets forth. He is on a mission and he is focused on that. When he turns on the TV, does he see story after story slamming him and his agenda? No, of course not. The propaganda machine will praise him to the end of his term and beyond. They blame anyone and everything but their boy king. He is wrapped in a cacoon of yes men/women and believes he is infallible. Polls will not deter him. He sees himself an exceptional President who will go down in history as one of the greats. He expects monuments will be erected in his honor. The fact that falling poll numbers may effect his fellow democrats means nothing to this narcissist. He believes in his heart that he is the one we have been waiting for.

The Real Clear Politics average is at 42.4%. It would be lower if Rasmussen didn´t keep reporting results 6 to 10 points higher than everyone else. As of today they have Obama´s approval rating at 50%. No wonder Scott Rasmussen resigned last year.

The truth is that the uninformed and dead heads approve and the rest don´t.

Better to take the median than the mean when data is so skewed. The median for the most recent five polls on the Real Clear Politics site is 41. Still not in the 30´s. Bush was in the 40´s and then the 30´s most of his second term and still finished his term. So will Barry. If Gallup were accurate, Romney would have won.

Thanks for pointing that out. While the average is 42.4, the median is more accurate at 41.

Interestingly, if we discard the highest and lowest numbers (50 and 39) the average becomes 41.

And while the occupation continues, he exercises his Executive Order powers.

If you took out the number of poll respondents who fear being labeled a ´racist´, the number is probably in the 20s. I realize it´s anecdotal but it´s a fact that those that defended him since 2009 suddenly change the subject when his name comes up.

I´ve posted this before, but here wit comes again. The dems will win in 2014,2016. Ever hear anyone say in 2012 that they decided 0 was doing such a great job that they were voting dem then, rather that republican? Hear anyone say they had to switch to dem? No, of course not. How many people said they voted for him the first time, but couldn´t vote for him a second time? Many, yet the dems still won. The dems have found a way to steal elections, and that is what the did in 2012, and will do in all future elections. There were whole precincts in Philly where there were NO republican votes at all. Like 20 or 30. So...folks....we are in deep she....i...t. And the gonad-less repubbies will not/did not do anything.

I am of the very sad opinion that demonRATS will never "lose" another election. The fix is in, the fraud machine is perfected. People would have to vote in such overwhelming numbers against them, and that is no longer possible. Too many illegals, commies,socialist Marxist types, occupiers, and dumb a**es. The MoronKing´s approval rating is meaningless.
Heartbreakingly sad, the great experiment is over.

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the many great contributions of the Black community and their culture to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature makes them ideal neighbors, lending estimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture.Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real Estate values are fueled by the influx of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nurturing of these communities, an example of all they have achieved by their enthusiasm for self-improvement through hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

Presently enriching the cities of Spokane WA, Chicago IL, Philadelphia PA, Washington D.C., St. Louis MO, New Orleans LA, Los Angeles CA, Flint MI, Baltimore MD,
Pontiac MI, Gary Ind., Newark NJ, Cleveland OH, Atlanta GA, Richmond VA, Memphis TN, Birmingham AL, Camden NJ; and let´s not forget Detroit, the tourism capital of the world!!

In these selfie times when freedom, joy and posterity are just a head-tilt, grin and finger-click away, it is only fitting that the United States of America would have as commander-in-chief the undisputed King of Selfies. The Selfie Presidency for the Selfie Generation in a Selfie World. President Obama is that rightful king. There he is with the greatest baseball players of our day. The president mugging for a selfie outside the White House.

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

Would you boycott a family dinner because your grandfather holds some politically incorrect views about welfare recipients? Or, would you uninvite a neighboring family from attending a block party after learning that they attend an evangelical church that upholds a traditional definition of marriage? Most reasonable people would say “no,” adhering to the old adage that it’s rude to talk politics in polite company. Unfortunately, this rule of etiquette that has governed civil society for ages seems to be quickly evaporating in the world of commerce, as highlighted by the now notorious case of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

The attempts of defenders of Obamacare to rouse the American people in favor of the doomed monstrosity have become more desperate and bizarre. The most recent example is taking place in Florida, where the sudden death of a young uninsured woman is being cited as an indictment of the Republican-controlled state legislature for refusing to approve the Medicaid expansion so generously being offered by the feds. If the woman in question had access to federally-mandated Medicaid, they argue, she would of course have gone in for preventative screening which would have revealed her cardiac abnormality and somehow saved her life.

The decline and fall of communism was a mathematical certainty, but what explains the profound disinterest that Americans have in the environmental movement?

Before the cannons fired at Fort Sumter, the Confederates announced their rebellion with lofty rhetoric about “violations of the Constitution of the United States” and “encroachments upon the reserved rights of the States.” But the brute, bloody fact beneath those words was money. So much goddamn money. The leaders of slave power were fighting a movement of dispossession. The abolitionists told them that the property they owned must be forfeited, that all the wealth stored in the limbs and wombs of their property would be taken from them. Zeroed out.

In a new book released today, Massachusetts Democratic senator and potential presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren attempts to rewrite history regarding the controversy surrounding her “Native American” ancestry that emerged in the 2012 Senate campaign. What’s remarkable is that, at least in the initial book reviews, the press largely allows her to get away with it. In fact, it’s virtually ignored that to this day Warren still refuses to release any law school records that may shed light on this controversy. To be fair, most reviews note that Warren has never substantiated her claims of Native American heritage, which is true.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.
