Obama as unpopular as
George W. Bush in poll

The Hill, by Rebecca Shabad

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 6/13/2014 8:07:52 AM

A new survey suggests President Obama is just as unpopular as former President George W. Bush. Just over half of those polled, 51 percent, have an unfavorable view of Obama, and 51 percent currently feel the same about Bush, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Thursday. Forty-seven percent of the public has a favorable rating of Obama, which CNN said is a new low for him, and roughly identical to Bush’s favorable rating of 46 percent. Days before leaving the White House in January 2009, Bush had a favorable rating of 35 percent. After the 2008 election, Obama had

Wonder what Obama´s numbers would be if the Press viciously attacked him as the did Bush.

Wonder what his poll numbers would be if the Media did not cover up the many scandals.

Well, if the "communist news network" says their dear leader has a rating of 46%, that tells us how much his "popularity" has disintegrated. If cnn will ADMIT to 46%, obviously it is no more than the low 30´s and those sad-sacks are hard-core-leftist-worshippers-of-all-things-obama! What a joke!

Bush was hammered 24/7 by the media and the rest of the liberal culture while Obama is idolized by them. Obama´s approval would be 14% without the liberal culture corruption. 12% blacks, and 2% Muslims, homos, lesbians and trannys.

Every President is more popular after they leave office than they were in the last couple of years of their term in office. The Bushes have left the public scene, the Clintons have not. It will be interesting to see how the Obamas handle being out of the public spotlight.

The interesting point about this headline is..... George Bush was vilified DAILY in every medium of the press. Vilified, mocked, insulted on every level thinkable. Oh, and threatened -- with impunity. Remember ´´Death of a President´´ 2006 - for one?
On the other hand, the press has done everything they could to protect this vacuous cipher, sell the public on his intelligence(ha), his sophistication(double HA), the striking beauty, ´´toned arms´´ and fashion sense of his homely ´wife´, (lolol). What else? His pants crease? His ´´good´´ looks? Compared to who, or what? A desiccated gecko?
And yet.
Despite all that?
He is polling at GWB´s levels?
In the interest of accuracy alone, how many additional points should be taken off considering MSM´s constant cuddling and covering for, and manipulation of the real news on behalf of their ?

If Iraq is lost to the bloodthirsty radicals, the military is largely going to be against the bamster.

Most of the military loved W as CIC, and most do not feel adequately supported by the current regime. There is little honor in the politicians who are in charge.

What are the true and natural numbers?
Is the media´s persistent bias worth 5%, 10% or more?

Thus, are Obama´s numbers pumped up by 10%, 20% or more, and Bush´s numbers deflated by the same??

This headline infuriates because it is such a lie. The media including FOX badgered, belittled and propped up the lies of Democrats about all things President George W. Bush nearly every single day of his eight years. Gee, ya think that affects poll numbers, duh? Obama´s numbers finally beginning to reflect his abominable job performance because it´s so obvious. The real numbers are probably much much worse!

GOP rejecting Obama´s
border funding request

Republicans in the House and Senate have voted thumbs down on President Obama´s request for $3.8 billion to deal with the crisis on our southern border. Most lawmakers think it´s too much money and not enough funds earmarked for border security. Washington Times: Even Texas Gov. Rick Perry, personally recruited by the president to persuade Republicans to support the measure, threw cold water on the idea. He said the president doesn’t need that much money and instead should send National Guard troops to secure the border.

Mississippi Tea Party Candidate Claims

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who is in the process of pursuing a legal challenge to his loss in the June 24 U.S. Senate Republican primary runoff, said Friday his campaign has found more "questionable votes" than the runoff´s margin of victory. In a statement released by his campaign, McDaniel said an examination of voting rolls in Mississippi found 8,300 "questionable votes." He didn´t release specific evidence or a county-by-county breakdown, as has the campaign of his challenger, U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran. The statement did not make clear what McDaniel meant by "questionable votes."

Israel Says It Struck a Gaza

The Israeli military said on Saturday that overnight it had struck a mosque in central Gaza that held a concealed weapons cache. The move was likely to fan Palestinian outrage during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. In Gaza, health officials said that the death toll from the Israeli airstrikes had reached 120, with hundreds more wounded. Many of those killed and wounded were said to be civilians, including women and children. Israel’s military said that over five days of fighting it had struck more than 1,160 targets in Gaza, including rocket launchers, weapon manufacturing and storage facilities and private

Central American children are pawns in the Democratic Party’s pursuit of political advantage through an open Southern border. Gilberto Ramos is just one of their most recent victims. The Guardian recently told Gilberto’s story: “Gilberto Ramos wanted to leave his chilly mountain village for the United States to earn money to treat his mother´s epilepsy. His mother begged him not to go. "The better treatment would have been if he stayed," Cipriana Juarez Diaz said in a tearful interview with the Associated Press on Tuesday. When he wouldn´t relent, she draped him with a white rosary for safe passage.

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.

I can remember several times when Obama just started to laugh in public at various disasters triggered by his policies. Happy laughter now seems to be the official White House reaction to domestic and international chaos and human suffering. You could call it leading with Obama’s big strength -- a great smile on TV -- while avoiding the worst of his weaknesses -- his inability to actually solve anything. About a year ago when painfully high black unemployment figures were mentioned, especially among young black men, Obama gave a happy smile in response. Then when “NATO” (i.e., the U.S.) started to bomb and overthrow the stabilizing regime

While President Barack Obama’s job approval rating was highest, by religion, among Muslims, other non-Christians, Jews (by faith), and atheists, his highest job disapproval ratings were among Christians -- Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, and other Christians. In the survey, conducted January-June 2014, Gallup asked about Obama’s job approval and disapproval, by religion. While 72% of Muslims and 54% of atheists expressed approval, only 44% of Catholics did, and only 37% of Protestant/Other Christian and 18% of Mormon/Latter-day Saints.

It was more of the same Friday for the residents of Tel Aviv, as two massive blasts caused by Iron Dome battery missiles intercepted Hamas’s long-range rockets, shaking the skies Friday night. The intercept marks the 10th and 11th rockets fired from Gaza toward Tel Aviv in the past 30 or so hours. In the rest of the country, over one hundred rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel Friday. Right before the Sabbath, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters at an Army base in Tel Aviv that Operation Protective Edge would continue until Hamas stopped its terror attacks on

As the White House plans to spend billions of taxpayer funds to take care of illegal immigrant children who are unlawfully entering the country, some black Americans who live in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods are wondering where they and their children can get refugee status and aid. On Friday´s Laura Ingraham Show, Elaine, a black woman from Baltimore, expressed her outrage that President Barack Obama is putting the interests of illegal immigrant children above those of American citizens.

Representative Jim Bridenstine (R., Okla.) was told he could schedule an appointment for July 21. ““What are they trying to hide?” Bridenstine said after the incident. ”Do they not want the children to speak with Members of Congress?

President Barack Obama treats the press like a spoiled child treats his parents. Despite the pampering, he just keeps complaining about them until he gets his way. As America tires of his inflated sense of self-importance while the economy limps and his foreign policy crumbles, Obama travels around the country complaining that the mean old media aren´t complimentary enough. At an event with big donors in May in Chicago, Obama lamented that he — the very essence of reason and nonpartisanship — is lumped in with a fanatical Congress in a tale of gridlocked Washington.

"This is a very complicated issue, and it´s not a question of assigning blame. The only people to blame are the criminals who exploit young children," Kerry said. Kerry warned that the children "are at enormous risk for their lives" in making the journey, but he also said he understands why they are heading to the USA:

Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
