President Barack Obama has looked far from the Leader of the Free World in recent months. In fact, Obama appears to be more and more nothing more than a shrinking violet. Barack Obama, “Lost in Smallness” and the Incredible shrinking President.
As per the most recent Rasmussen poll, Obama is at a -18 Daily Presidential index and has an 45% approval and 54% disapproval rating. Could it possible be because this President has shown no sign of leadership what so ever when it came to war in Libya or the recent debate over the 2011 budget?
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 21% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18 (see trends).
UPDATE I: Just when Obama thought it could not get any worse, it has. It is being reported at the Drudge Report this morning that Obama has reached new lows.
Rasmussen poll: Obama — Strongly Approve: 19% (new low); Strongly Disapprove: 39% — Total Approval: 44%…developing…
Make that a -20 Daily Presidental Index as a record low of only 19% stronly approve of the job that Obama has done as president.
The LEFT is obviously none to please with many of Obama’s recent policy reversals including having a 2011 budget that called for no government spending from the White House and settling for $39.5 billion in cuts.
The most recent lack of Obama leadship is his wanting a Mulligan on the Debt Reduction. Barack Obama already put out a budget plan for 2012 that was a total joke to reduce the out of control US deficit. Having been embarrassed by the seriousness of the Ryan Plan and the fact that “We the People” want government spending cut … Obama, the Follower in Chief now has to release budget, debt reduction Part Deux. However, the pathetic reality of this reactionary President is to release debt reduction that pulls out one of the old pages from the Democrat play book and tax the rich. We can remember this failed during the lame duck session of Congress, now Obama wants to trod it out again.
