'Essentially, the public is saying your presidency is over'
NBC’s Chuck Todd described the latest WSJ/NBC poll as a “disaster for the president” and argued that the American public is essentially saying Obama’s “presidency is over.”
This poll is a disaster for the president,” Todd said. “You look at the presidency here: lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.”
“On the issue of do you believe he can still lead? A majority believe no. Essentially the public is saying your presidency is over,” Todd added.
Wall Street Journal reports:
As clouds gather abroad, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds Mr. Obama’s job approval rating at 41%, matching a previous low. Approval of his handling of foreign policy hit a new low of 37%. Both numbers are driven in part by conflicts largely outside the president’s control, including a new wave of sectarian violence in Iraq.
At the same time, Americans seem to be losing faith in Mr. Obama’s ability to accomplish his goals, with 54% of those polled saying they no longer feel the president “is able to lead the country and get the job done,” compared with the 42% who said he could. And 41% said his administration’s performance has gotten worse over the past year, compared with the 15% who noted improvement.
Earlier Wednesday morning, Todd appeared on the Today Show and described Obama’s polls numbers as “cratering”:

So much for all of those people that said Obama couldn't be worse than Bush. Somehow this moron has set a new standard for incompetency. Worst president ever.

I actually think Valerie Jarrett has done a bang up job.
Who's this Obama? Is he a golfer or something?

I am not an Obama supporter, but it baffles me on the decisions this president has made across the board. Obama is clearly an intelligent, well educated man. I disagree with his views but who is pulling his strings. It is obvious that this freshmen Politian was drafted by some very rich and powerful group, placed into office and is executing some self destructive plan.
I refuse to be believe he is incompetent as he is acting. Any ideas or theories?
