Obama’s teetering presidency
Washington Times, by J.T. Young

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/19/2014 5:06:27 AM

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population. In 2012, Mr. Obama won among women 55 percent to 44 percent. Today, his approval rating among women is 41 percent, with

Finally even some of the slow witted former followers are figuring out that a crappy little community organizer, and a complete fruad, isn´t quite up to the world´s most important job. Well, well now isn´t that a surprise?

(a) 0bama isn´t running for any more elections, one way or the other (b)his very core support isn´t going anywhere. The effort from now is to keep Democrats running for re-election from having to pay the price of this disaster. Total focus of the MSM from now on. Walker, Christie, Perry all part of this game plan.

Bingo #3. But somehow his disapproval number never "plummets" below 40 percent. And in all probability those who would kick him to the curb will willingly vote for whomever becomes the next Dem candidate; no doubt with the "First Woman as president" meme front and center.

Virtually across the board, among groups in which Mr. Obama still had support to lose, he has lost it in roughly double-digit chunks.

Polls have never stopped him. He simply doesn´t care.

Today, the president’s support can be identified in just five major groups: Democrats, liberals, blacks, 18-to-29-year-olds and the Northeasterners. Even in this shrunken core, Mr. Obama has seen notable declines.

That´s still a lot of votes. Too many. Do these supporters actually believe a Republican will be worse than another liberal Democrat? The devastated landscape that elected liberals leave in their wake should be a clue to voters, but alas, they don´t seem to learn.

I saw Obama give his Ferguson speech. He looks awful; haggard, skinny, sallow. I almost felt sorry for him until I remembered the depths to which his handlers will go to create sympathy for him -- to the point of using carefully applied professional makeup. Shadows can do wonders to make a person look sick.

As for his "teetering presidency", it didn´t teeter soon enough to avoid the carnage in America, the Middle East and Russia. This presidency should have teetered before he was elected, given the entire blank background he offered as his qualifications for this Office.

When his support gets to 10% I will listen. Notice there was nothing in the article about the support of African Americans - which still remains at 90%.

He will serve out his term and bring disaster with him through his pen and his phone. The 2014 election needs to be a loud message to Rinos and Dims alike. You have to wonder if that will actually happen.

Obama would have never been the Democratic canadate, been elected President the first time, reelected President, avoided impeachment without the msm. They are socialist and evil just as Obama and his regime. Without a honest, fair and balanced media, which includes all forms of public media, the USA needs to have a peaceful parting of ways. The chances they will see the light of reality are no better the state of Vermont voting for a Republican president.

Teetering? I don´t think so. As long as there is fuel in AFI, a golf course with a vacation mansion and Hollywood the Obama family with play in style. The first black experiment and ´What Me Worry?´ chief of state is just fine. Ruling with his pen and his phone is all he needs while Congress sits dumb founded and too stupid to act. What ever the percentage of black population is should be his approval numbers but it´s not. There are still stupid liberals rabidly supporting him thus the high numbers for this disaster.

It is my great hope that Barry leaves office in Jan. 2017, with the lowest approval rate of any of the previous 43 men to hold the office. I think his two terms as POTUS have served as an example of the kind of president that is not good for America. I truly hope voters have learned this important lesson.

As I and several others have expressed, it´s too bad that Israel´s Prime Minister Netanyahu can´t trade places with Obama, as Bibi would make a great American President!

For those who don´t know or have forgotten, Mr. Netanyahu studied political science at Harvard while earning his S.M. degree from MIT Sloan School of Management. He would run rings around Barry who may not have attended many classes at Harvard, since no one remembers his being there. I bet Netanyahu´s fellow classmates remember him quite well - intelligent people usually stick out whether or not they intend to do so.

The early signs that obama was the incompetent post turtle that most of us thought before his inauguration were the multi-trillion dollar bailouts, payoffs to unions and cronies, green energy scams, oil-platform shutdowns, cash for clunkers, czar appointments, muslim infiltrations, financial takeovers, obamacare tactics, election fraud... other than that, he seemed like a pretty capable guy.

Oh come on, when are you "conservative" journalists going to figure it out? His presidency is anything but teetering. To Marx, Alinsky, Frank Marshal Davis, Jarrett, his presidency is stronger than ever and getting stronger every second. So, the question is, what IS teetering or more accurately, what has already teetered over? Here´s a hint; it´s between Mexico and Canada and between the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean. Its THREE initials starts with a "U" and ends with an "A" with an "S" in between. With apologies to Rio Lindans for giving them a super tough question.

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas to any country that won’t take back its own citizens; Stop

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer.

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk.

In a letter to Gov.

He added: "It is my concern that these assertions have become a distraction from the great record of this administration." Hours later, the department´s deputy chief counsel, Glenn Parno,

Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?
