Barack Obama, The Most Polarizing First Year President, EVAH!


Barack Hussein Obama was voted into office as a the “Hope & Change” President. He was touted as the bridge to the future.  Obama was to reach across the aisle to Republicans and change the way Washington politics operated.

Hmm, going to change Washington, reach across the aisle and govern in a bipartisan manner, eh?


According to a Gallup Poll, Barack Hussein Obama is the most polarizing President ever in their first year of office. EVER!!! 65%!!! That is a full 13% points higher that President Bill Clinton. So much for the bipartisan and  campaign promises of unifying the country by The One.

The 65 percentage-point gap between Democrats’ (88%) and Republicans’ (23%) average job approval ratings for Barack Obama is easily the largest for any president in his first year in office, greatly exceeding the prior high of 52 points for Bill Clinton.

America, how is that “Hope & Change” feeling now? American voters only recourse to the election of Barack Obama in 2008 is hope for change in the elections of 2010 and 2012 when The One runs for President again.

Hot Air Pundit reminds us of the lies of Barack Hussein Obama during the 2008 elections when he said “he did not want to pit RED America against BLUE America”. How’s that going?

Come the 2012 Presidential elections, as the rock band The Who sings, “We Will Not Be Fooled Again.

      So he is polarizing.

      And here is the reason why:
      Usually in a democracy both sides make a proposal and then a compromise that the majority including votes from both sides will carry is reached. With ideas from both sides.
      That’s how grown up politics work and what gives government a good direction.

      But how to barter or compromise with people who refuse to work or deal in the first place. Like reps not reading bills, making no counter proposals, just saying no. They refused to work, think and compromise.
      Obama had to push stuff through with only the left wing’s support. You are surprised that that is polarizing?? He reached over to the other side about a thousand times, hoping someone would signal readiness to go forward.
      They just sat there. Saying no. We don’t work. We don’t risk our asses. We just wait until the problems we created eat you up or until we can start pointing fingers for whatever other reason.

      Obama had no choice but to go hard left because that is the only active wing in the damn government.

      That strategy carries fruit now. Congratulations to “You the people” for supporting such spineless ***holes. Only such gullibility makes it possible to sell complete inactivity as a win.

      I agree that few reps are polarizing, because they just do nothing.
      SM: Awe, the poor liberals are in chaos that there Obamamessiah is a total failure. You people play me.

      When it was GWB being partisan, he was evil. When its Obama, he is just doing courageous things. You people really don’t believe your own BS do you?

      Obama lied … that is the problem.

      In today’s political environment, any thinking person cannot really expect to get the support of the opposition party, unless there is a 911.

      Obama’s problem is not that he lost the right … Obama’s problem is that he lost the INDEPENDENT voters. That and even the LEFT as he has been a useless failure.

      His policies are so liberal and MARXIST that he could not get them thru the House and Senate with overwhelming majorities.

      Obaka is no LEADER, he is a community organizer and soon will be back doing it in 2012.

      Waaa Waaa Waaa

      Now we have to listen to the liberals cry about how Obama is such a failure and try to blame the Republicans for Obama’s ineptness, ignorance & arrogance.

      Poor babies have their panties in a wad….LOL

      Oh my…
      I didn’t say he was a failure.
      I tried to explain why he has to polarize.

      Ok, I’ll try to explain it in a different way:
      You mentioned majorities.
      There cannot be any overwhelming majorities. The republicans are crossing their arms and blocking. He could give every rich man a thousand dollar tax cut out of some help-the-marxist-revolution-fund and the reps would block it nonetheless.
      Well maybe not that one…

      Democracy lives through compromise that reflects the power relations in the parliament. Currently it doesn’t.
      There are reasonable people from both sides in the government. On both sides you have the idiots and extremists. Usually they don’t get too much power, because you can reach over the isle and reach a compromise, a deal with some from the other side.

      Obama has no choice but to make deals with the hardliners of his own party if he wants to get stuff done.
      With the republicans probably under order to block anything, this will not work.

      They backstabbed bush.
      Still got their asses handed to them in the elections.
      And now they are blocking everything without even making a counter proposal.
      Then they complain.
      It is sad but logical.
      Maybe it is a chance for them to bounce back. But only with voters without understanding.

      I hope this helps you a bit. I will not use my time to further explain democracy here. My opinion about the reps is subjective, but how our government works is something you can look up on a dozen sources.
