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.

Newly inaugurated Afghan President Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai is expected to sign a vital security deal Tuesday to allow American soldiers to remain in the country past the end of the year, officials say. A senior Defense Department official confirmed to Fox News that the new president will sign the Bilateral Security Agreement allowing for 9,800 U.S. troops to remain in Afghanistan after 2014. The president also is expected to sign a NATO Status of Forces Agreement, which will allow a small NATO force to stay on as well.

As Eric Holder prepares to leave as attorney general, there is a fierce debate over his six-year tenure. Many conservative senators who voted to confirm him in 2009 now regret it. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, now zings Holder’s “lack of respect for Congress, the American taxpayer, and the laws on the books.” Even some of his supporters agree he’s been confrontational and polarizing. Juan Williams of Fox News rails against anti-Holder “scandalmongers” but then admits “the Justice Department has devolved into the heart of Washington darkness, the absolute pit of modern political polarization

On ‘60 Minutes,’ the president faulted his spies for failing to predict the rise of ISIS. There’s one problem with that statement: The intelligence analysts did warn about the group. Nearly eight months ago, some of President Obama’s senior intelligence officials were already warning that ISIS was on the move. In the beginning of 2014, ISIS fighters had defeated Iraqi forces in Fallujah, leading much of the U.S. intelligence community to assess they would try to take more of Iraq. But in an interview that aired Sunday evening, the president told 60 Minutes that the rise of the group now proclaiming itself

To understand why revitalizing Detroit will be difficult, consider the response to the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department’s (DWSD) recent plan to make overdue customers pay their bills. The DWSD serves more than 4 million customers across the Detroit region. The suburbs mostly buy water from the DWSD wholesale, so it’s mainly city residents and businesses who get billed directly, and over half of them—about 90,000 customers—haven’t paid up. Total past-due bills add up to nearly $90 million, with the average delinquent residential customer owing $540, or more than 7 months’ worth of service, based on an average bill of

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

“People say I’m a pretty good kid. Why, in a country as rich as America, should I have to go to bed hungry?” So goes the Feeding America campaign of “public-service announcements,” which since 2008 have proven more popular than all the other Ad Council “Don’t” campaigns (Don’t start forest fires, Don’t bully, Don’t eat paint.?.?.) combined. Media programmers, especially at ad-poor online streaming outlets, run the spots continuously. That’s partly because, paradoxically, they imply an upscale ad environment: The production values are Tiffany-grade; the spots feature A-list celebs like Matt Damon, Paula Deen and Beyoncé, etc. Plus, they deliver an emotional punch that

President Obama doubled down on his effort to increase the likelihood of the success of the 2015 UN climate change conference in Paris, claiming the U.S. has “a special responsibility to lead. That’s what great nations do.” He took the occasion of the UN meetings in New York to put the heat on China, the world’s largest polluter, to match the steps the U.S. is taking to reduce its CO2 emissions.

Washington -- As Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu defends her U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana, a new CNN/ORC International poll indicates the third-term incumbent carries a slim advantage over her closest GOP rival in the general election this November. But this is Louisiana, and the election system can be complicated. There are nine candidates -- Republicans, Democrats, and a Libertarian -- on the ballot this November, and if no candidate crosses the 50% threshold, the race moves into a December runoff between the top two contenders. Landrieu currently falls well below the 50% mark at 43% support among likely voters. Republican Rep. Bill

For my money, PJ Media’s own Andrew C. McCarthy is one of the very best writers on the Islamist threat as seen from the west. Relentlessly honest and deeply informed, he avoids sweeping generalizations and any hint of bigotry but never turns his eyes from the truth of the situation. If you haven’t read his recent NRO article, “The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist,” you really should. It vivisects the presidential narrative of what’s happening in the Middle East. By listing and sometimes inventing names for small Islamist splinter groups, the president, McCarthy says, is trying to rewrite reality to

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,
