Obama on Vacation Playing Golf & Americans still Strongly Disapprove


Barack Hussein Obama may be on vacation and playing golf while an attempted terrorist effort was thwarted by a airline passenger and faulty detonator, but his Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Index is still terrible at -16%. For the 36th polling day in a row, Barack Hussein Obama has a negative double digit index.


Many Americans now look at Obama’s government interference and take over as the problem, not the solution. More people now than ever think that Obama’s $787 billion stimulus plan hurt the economy, not helped it. This should do wonders for Obama’s approval ratings when unemployment remains steady and the economy continues to flounder.  Obamacare has also hurt The One beyond words.

Thirty-eight percent (38%) now believe the economic stimulus plan passed earlier this year has hurt the economy. Just 30% believe it helped. That’s the first time since the legislation passed that a plurality offered a negative assessment.

Most voters (52%) are concerned that the government will do too much in terms of responding to the economic challenges. Just 35% fear it will not do enough.

Wait until the poll for blaming the poor economy becomes owned by Obama, rather than Bush … watch the approval ratings sink even further. No matter how you look at it the 2010 and 2012 elections do not bode well for Obama or Democrats.

      We must be very vigilant of any ‘administration’
      that is obsessed with end-running our Constitution
      and Bill of Rights. High pressure salesmanship
      techniques are being employed to impose the will
      of these idiots on We the People. Case after case
      of unprecedented ineptness is being revealed to us
      while these unqualified manglers attempt to manage
      society their way as opposed to the right way.

      The economy is what he needs to be focusing on.

      Maybe we are better off if he stayed out of the office the next three years.

      Oh, before anybody calls me racist for saying that our president shouldn’t be taking a vacation, I thought that I heard that we are in the worst financial/healthcare crisis in our history and that we all need to do our part.

      I am glad that he is creating jobs though.

      Aw Come on! Give BO eight years and he will have all the kids coming out of high school earning government checks, wearing red berets and singing praise to his name….
      (Wasn’t this brought up in his campaign? The Obama corp….)

      The Republicans needs to find someone with good ideas who can win and fast. The 2012 election should be starting soon. I still like Lou Dobbs who hinted he might run.
