Gallup Poll: Barack Obama back Under 50% Job Approval Rating … Suddenly Obama for Oil Drilling, “Drill, Baby, Drill”
That didn’t take long … President Barack Obama’s job approval rating back under 50%.
According to the most recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama has a job approval rating of 48%, while 45% disapprove. The bounce appears to be over and it back to reality. The US economy is headed the wrong direction, unemployment is at 9.0% and gas prices rising. Rasmussen has Obama at a 48% job approval and 51% disapproval.
It should be no surprise that suddenly Obama has made another flip-flop and is for oil drilling. Wow, how long will it take before he takes credit for “Drill, Baby, Drill” ? Next thing we know, toy companies will be making roughneck Obama, the oil drilling dude. Hmm, I thought there was no silver bullet Barack? There are two real questions, one, will Obama actually drill and two, will he give the credit to Sarah Palin?
Reporting from Washington— President Obama will open Alaska’s national petroleum reserve to new drilling, as part of a broad plan aimed at blunting criticism that he is not doing enough to address rising energy prices.
The plan, unveiled in Obama’s weekly radio address Saturday, also would fast-track environmental assessment of petroleum exploration in some portions of the Atlantic and extend the leases of oil companies whose work in the Gulf of Mexico and the Arctic Ocean was interrupted by the drilling moratorium after last year’s BP oil spill.
Wasn’t it just last year that Obama said that we cannot drill our way out of the problem and that is why you never heard him say, “drill, baby, drill”.
“You never heard me say, ‘”drill, baby drill… We can’t drill our way out of the problem
Obviously his poll numbers are threatened by the high gas prices and the reactionary, flip-flopping president now must she he is the “Oil Drilling” president. Now he unveils an oil drilling plan, what about that green energy Barack? This President could care less about new drilling, he cares about his poll numbers and reelection. Why did he wait this long to present such an energy plan? Barack Obama stood in the way of oil exploration and actually harmed it. Now, he says drill. Plueze!
