ZERO BOUNCE FROM PRESIDENT ZERO: Barack Obama Flops With American Public Following Jobs Speech … No Polling Bounce
SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE … NO BOUNCE for Obama after jobs speech in front of joint session of Congress. Or as we like to say, ZERO BOUNCE FOR PRESIDENT ZERO.
If you thought that President Barack Obama’s job speech sounded like more of the same of the failed Obama agenda on the economy, you were not alone. Many Americans thought the same and thus the reason why Obama received “ZERO” bounce from his much ballyhooed jobs speech. Needless to say, Obama’s jobs speech was underwhelming.
President Barack Obama didn’t score any political points with his speech on jobs to a joint session of Congress last Thursday. According to a new CNN/ORC International poll released Tuesday, the president’s approval rating stands at 43 percent, virtually unchanged from the 45 percent approval rating in the previous CNN poll.
Although this is not the lowest number of those who say they approve of how Obama is handling his job-he reached 42 percent one year ago-the number who disapprove of the president reached its highest during his presidency in the poll.
Less than one in ten think Obama’s policies have made the economy better, although another four in ten credit them with preventing the economy from being even worse than it is today. Thirty-seven percent say that Obama has made economic conditions worse and 15 percent think his policies have had no effect.
So what does President Zero do after receiving no bounce from his speech that looks to add another $450 billion to our national debt? Go on the road and sell the snake oil to the American public. Oh that’s right, its all paid for. Sure it is. The American public has lost all confidence in Obama on handling the economy and frankly, trying to sell this jobs plan, son of stimulus, as being needed to be passed immediately makes all Americans ask … if this is the answer to America’s ills, why didn;t Obama come up with it sooner?
The president is on the road this week touting a new policy–his $447 billion jobs proposal-that he’s encouraged Congress to take up and pass. With stops in Richmond, Virginia last week, Columbus, Ohio Tuesday, and North Carolina on Wednesday, the road trip appears to be doubling as a swing through battleground states.
But with more than half the nation saying Obama cannot manage the government effectively in the poll and no bounce in public opinion following his speech, the president may have his work cut out for him selling his plan to the public.
It is too little too late for Obama … he will be judged in the 2012 elections based on the his efforts with the economy and frankly America believes he has failed miserably.
