Obama at -22% in Rasmussen Presidential Index and 43% Approval Rating … Failing Grade for BP Oil Spill


Holy Cow Batman … President Barack Hussein Obama has seen the wheels fall of.

Don’t look now but Obama has a -22% rating in the most recent Rasmussen Presidential Approval Index tracking poll. It measures strongly approve vs. strongly disapprove.


The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 23% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22. That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for this president.

Obama is at a 43% approval rating in the Rasmussen poll today.

No wonder Barack Obama is going to get out of Washington, DC for Memorial Day and not lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as all other Presidents have done … it is his Southwest Airlines “wanna get away” moment. Nothing is going right from this President with regards to the economy, unemployment, budget deficits, North Korea, Iran, Obamacare, illegal immigration and most recently the debacle of the BP Oil spill.

Everyone, including Democrats and Moderates are livid at Obama’s lack of response and leadership in the wake of the BP oil spill. Mr. President, every one knows that BP will be held responsible for the cost, WE THE PEOPLE want to see leadership from the President in handling this ecological disaster. Not seeing you play golf. Is it any wonder that poll show that Americans give Obama a failing grade on dealing with the BP oil spill. 53% of Americans gave Obama a poor rating on his handling of this mess.

The oil spill off the Gulf Coast is staining more than Louisiana’s beaches.

The response to the disaster by energy giant BP, President Obama and the federal government all get terrible grades from Americans in a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll.

Nearly three-fourths of those surveyed Monday and Tuesday say BP is doing a “poor” or “very poor” job in handling the calamity. Six of 10 say that of the federal government. And a 53% majority give Obama a poor rating.

So Mr. President, how would you grade yourself on handling the oil spill if you were asked by the MSM? The American people give you an “F”!

Welcome to Obama’s Hurricane Katrina, the LEFT is learning what is good for GWB is good for Obama as well. Many of the Left has asked, what is Obama supposed to do? Maybe they should have asked that same question during Hurricane Katrina. However, fair or not, the buck stops with Obama and he has done a lousy job.

      His falling ratings should not be a surprise, in light of his lackadaisical approach to the job he was elected to do. Chris Matthews and others seem to be pulling away from supporting him. He no longer seems to be the media’s messianic darling.

      But what bothers me about the oil spill is what I see as a plan to use it to stop or curtail all offshore drilling and exploration. The bigger and more damaging the spill, the bigger the hammer he is able to use to get what he really wants. Wonder what really big thing will happen in the coal industry to regulate it out of existence?? Just my opinion.

      The federal government should not be in the business of regulating anything relating to technology. Why? They simply do not have the knowledge to correctly regulate. A bunch of lawyers without real knowledge of an industry cannot solve problems.
      We now have knowldge that the MMS has been derlick in their duties. Some watching porn on their government computers and collecting their salaries while doing nothing relating to their jobs. These people need to be fired and made to pay back every dime of the salaries collected during the time they worked for the agency.

      I’m shocked he still has a 43% approval rating. Still that many clueless folks in this Country. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

      Maybe some of those that give Obama an approval rating are illegal immigrants along with his terrorists friends…Obama is the worst think that even happened to us…why can we see his birth certificate, why can’t we view his college records…all documents are locked and sealed…why hide anything…because something is wrong!!!

    7. Dumb and Dumber, First Obama Compares BP Oil Spill to 911, Then Goes Golfing | Scared Monkeys on June 14th, 2010 7:53 am

      [...] care, rather than just spewing words in a speech read off a teleprompter? Is it any wonder why Americans give Obama a failing grade in dealing with the BP oil crisis, first he compares it to 9-11 then goes golfing … President [...]
