now significantly outpaces that of Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush


I am not sure if that is a complement or a back handed insult. Both Jimmy Carter and H.W. Bush are great honest men(compared to other presidents), but they were terrible presidents and lost the reelection. So, um, yea. Not sure what to make of those results.

Obama is UNELECTABLE. That is the message that needs to go out to the sheeple. In vast quantities. Everywhere. Stand on the street corners. Make more petitions. Hand out Flyers, even if you are not a FlyersFan.



Sure, its out there, and the hardcore Republicans have bought it lock stock and barrel. The hardcore Democrats are in love with Obama, and they'll give him his 40-45% approval rating no matter what he does.

The rest of us are left scratching our heads wondering why we don't have any viable candidates? Who are we supposed to vote for. OK, Obama is unelectable, so is Romney, and a vote for Johnson is considered "wasted." So what do we do? The R's would have us believe Romney is the lesser of two evils, but that is just not good enough anymore. The D's would have us believe Obama has helped us dodge a full-fledged depression, ended Iraq, protected us from terrorism, and all the while playing scratch and tickle with his wife and looking like a cool cat. Both are full of shyte!

So, if your message gets out there..... then what? What is the solution? Romney?
Maybe we just go without a President for 4 years, that would have to be an improvement over previous and current choices!

You are delusional, brainwashed individual who knows nothing and presumes everything. I laugh at you sir, and hope you don't hold any position that allows you to spew your warped views within earshot of anyone who might be easily influenced by your garbage. Do you get all of your talking points from the Tavistock institute or some super Obama camp? GO TROLL SOMEWHERE ELSE.

I am shocked that anyone here at ATS could be so naive as to what is really going on in the world. But that's okay. Ignorance is bliss, and if you're not ready to see what's really happening, then by all means.....

But to pretend that Obama isn't some huge failure? That he's not trying to take America down?

Have you ever heard of the NDAA? Oh, yes, that little piece of legislation signed by Obama on New Years Eve? Do you even know what the NDAA is? Is this a man, a president, who cares and loves his fellow countrymen?

Here's a partial list of Obama's failings:




Debt Ceiling fiasco of 2011- While the liberal media has done a good job of pinning this on Republicans and the Tea Party in particular, the blame lies squarely at his feet as he refused any real plan that would cap the debt ceiling as per Moody's, Standard & Poors, etc .
Any honest research will show that the August 2011 down grade and stock market crash could have been avoided if the Obama and his dishonest colleagues such as Harry Reid had accepted "Cut Cap, & Balance"

Stimulus bill - not a jobs bill but a democratic payback bill

Refusing to prosecute the radical hate group; the Black Panthers for violations of others voting rights as well as hate crimes and inciting violence

New Black Panther Obama DOJ refused to prosecute: “I hate white people – all of them!”

Obama’s lies about the budget and constant blaming of Bush rather than taking any responsibility at all for his hand in the budget deficit and terrible economy:

For Fiscal Year 2009, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009.

If the Obama & the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the Fiscal Year 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

Obama and Attorney General Holder suing the Sate of Arizona over bill that only enforces US Federal Law (US code #1304; c, d, & f)

Obama’s ties via Eboo Patel to the radical Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim leader behind the plan to build the Islamic center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wrote the afterward to Patel’s 2006 book entitled, “Building the Interfaith Youth Movement: Beyond Dialogue to Action.”
Eboo Patel the is religious adviser to President Obama. Obama’s adviser says, “America is the ideal place for a renewal of Islam”.

*Barack Obama’s ‘Religious’ Advisor, Eboo Patel, is closely linked to the radical imam seeking to build the Ground Zero mosque
*Obama religion adviser closely tied to ‘Ground Zero’ imam. Boasted of America as ‘ideal place for renewal of Islam’

Extreme political correctness and inability to call Islamic Extremists and the tenants of Islam which they follow for what it is;
An extreme religion of hate and intolerance:
No Mosque at Ground Zero

"Solar-Gate"; There are two House investigations into a scandal involving a $535 million federal loan failed solar company Solyndra, and more than $4.7 billion for four additional loans for troubled solar companies

Lack of proper vetting

Tax cheats in his administration; Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner

Socialist in his administration;
Here are just a few:
Carol Browner (Energy Czar/Director), Rosa Brooks (Senior advisor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Michele Flournoy), Ron Bloom (Manufacturing Czar).

Obama, Socialist with Communists in his administration

Allowing radical racist communist in his administration - Van Jones; Special Advisor for Green Jobs in the Obama administration (Former now)
This guy is so far out there that he signed his name to 911Truth.org which is a group that does not believe the accepted, proven, and established accounts of 9/11/01, this is a kin to denying the Holocaust, claiming the Earth is flat (there are those that still believe this), believe the Moon landings were fake, etc, etc.
This is also insulting to the families of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and bluntly almost as evil as the attacks themselves!
Reference (one of many);
Wikipedia; Van Jones

Shutting down of the oil industry in the Gulf of Mexico, along with his mishandling of the BP Oil Spill including turning down real help from the Dutch for Oil Spill Help; Obama says “Thanks, but no thanks”
Also with an economy that needs low oil prices for complete recovery, Obama continues to lock up viable oil reserves in the US.

Sadly energy policy has been a failure of many presidents, including Bush. We need a leader to stand up to the communist environmental movement before it is too late (all the while China drills for oil just outside our waters and Canada does not have any of the issues with drilling that we have in Alaska)

Obamas extreme arrogance toward those who do not fit his world view/profile. This includes his view that other than himself driving around in limos and flying in Air Force one, no one else is entitled to any luxuries in life and high fuel prices are just another way of separating the "serfs" from persons of his stature in his racist psychopathic narcissist world vie

Barack Obama Riding in SUV, Hypocrite

No Olympics for Chicago - turned out to be a big ego trip instead

Making race relations worse - (stupidly comment- professor gates)

Fly over photo op in New York - scared New Yorkers

Selling out other nations by removing missile defense

Letting Pelosi and Reid write bills

Lack of transparency

Multiple czars with no accountability

Lying about details of his healthcare reform bill - YOU LIE!!!

Attempt to take over census

Undecided about giving military what they need to win

Association with acorn

Worldwide apology tour (this borders on treason IMHO)

Willing to bend over to our enemies while giving our allies the shaft

Lack of support for Israel.
While I, nor others advocate blanket support for everything Israel does, it does not take a genius to figure out the Israel is the strongest democracy in the region and our best ally in the region as well.
One could also cite Genesis 12:2-3 for supporting Israel, although their adittedly is controversy as to the correct interpretation of these verses, I personally think it is clear from reading the Bible in context (not just the literal Hebrew of these verses) that the Nation of Israel is being spoken of via Abraham's descendants through Jacob, NOT Ishmael (see: "I will make you into a great nation")

Took too long to speak out against violence against voters in Iran

Getting the NEA to produce propaganda art for his agenda

Firing inspector general for investigating his friends at americorp

Shutting down voucher program in DC for poor school kids

America’s fundamental transformation is already being planned by Barack Obama as he looks forward to his second term to change our beloved land into his vision of Marxism. Are you better off under his guidance than you were four years ago when an unknown candidate of unknown origin and unknown citizenship was crowned by Democrats and their media comrades?

Leaked details of a new book, “Fool Me Twice” reveal Obama’s plan to change the country he hates into his vision of a new world order here on the North American continent. Authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott reveal the following progressive paradigm already on the drawing board:

-Executive Order granting widespread amnesty by removal of H-1B visas and green cards and denuding our Border Patrol





-federal solutions and huge bureaucracies to disperse America’s new immigrants throughout every sector of life

-revisiting FDR’s WPA construct of the 1930s, setting up the huge Works Progress Administration federal jobs paradigm

-new National Infrastructure Bank to finance and control virtually every U.S. infrastructure

-drastic slashing of the military budget and grabbing control from Congress to severely reduce the U.S. Armed Forces

-Green stimulus programs and an “Energy Trust”

-Single-payer health care under tight control of Obama’s federal government

To put it most succinctly, not everyone agrees with your assessment of his performance in office.


That's unfortunate to the point of tragedy.



Tragedy? Really? Is your life so great, that THATS your idea of tragedy?

You, not understanding what Marxism is, is not the same Obama, or anyone, turning America into a Marxist country.

Your claim is completely absurd.

Thank you MRuss for finally bringing some eye opening points to the Obama followers. I don't understand how anyone can still believe a word that man says. He is a great speaker, but take away his prompter and see what happens.
Not a Romney fan either.

BREAKING NEWS! Just because you don't understand something doesn't man it's untrue!


MORE BREAKING NEWS! His numbers are still dismal! That is even if this poll is true. People should learn that these polls are hardly accurate today. The media outlets are professionals at making something bad look good!

Umm... so they're making both Romney and Obama look bad or good...?

Sorry your evidence was ... non-existent... so I can't guess what the actual conspiracy is here...

There is no conspiracy.. Everyone knows polls like this are inaccurate.. I never said anything about Romney. He isn't the president and doesn't have a 14th quarter approval rating.

So you like Obama because he's the lesser of two evils?

Bravo.. Bravo

Should I prefer Romney because he's the greater of two evils?

C'mon now, common sense.

As for not saying anything re: Romney and the poll, you certainly implied polls are manipulated, to make people look better... so.. I was just trying to figure out what conspiracy you were pushing...

I'm just repeating what you said earlier about the lesser of two evils..

You said you aren't crazy about Obama but anything is better than Romney.

Also, I never said anything about the polls being manipulated.. I'm saying that those numbers are still below 50% which is pretty bad even if they have risen slightly. I was inferring that the media is good at making something like 46% look like a better number by the way they report. That's all. No conspiracy at all.

This strongly implies the polls are being manipulated.

You claim they are innacurate and that the media has made them that way.

No?

As far as my vote, I have two choices, well three if you count nonparticipation, and neither of the candidates are great. Romney is atrocious, Obama is bad. I choose bad.

It's not that the polls are manipulated just that often times they don't mean much. I'd say that sometimes the polled audience isn't necessarily an accurate representation of the general public opinion.. I don't necessarily think that it is intentional either although it could be.. Its hard to rely on those polls as reliable or as good indicators of anything. I think the media uses the polls at times to make things look better or worse.. Even with the data really isn't indicative of either. 46% isn't what we consider good.. But it's not really awful either. I dunno.. I just take polls with a grain of salt is all.

We agree... Up to a point. The entire thing about this poll is it's about a relatively long trend in polling. Not just a single poll.

Single polls are often useless, but months of polls, not so much.
