President Barack Obama Averaged 49.1% Job Approval During First Term in Office, Among the Lowest of Post World War II Presidents
Second Term Mandate … Hardly.
According to Gallup, President Barack Hussein Obama’s job approval during his first term in office was among the lowest of ant of the post-World War II presidents. His average of 49.1% during his first term and 48.1% during his final year of his first term is only above Jimmy Carter and George H.G. Bush. However, these two individuals lost reelection. With a consistent high unemployment rate, record number of individuals on food stamps, near record low job participation and record debt, it makes one scratch their heads how GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney did not defeat Obama.
One really has to wonder just how low Barack Obama’s job approval ratings would be if he did not have the liberal MSM carrying his water and opening supporting and campaigning for him. How would the American people feel about Barack Obama if they did not have a lying and complicit propagandist media running cover for him? It explains how such an epic failure of a president was reelected. Which begs the questions, had it not been for the corrupt liberal media complex, would a lazy and apathetic America still voted him in for a second term or would they still have bought into Obama’s divisiveness and class warfare?
President Barack Obama averaged 49.1% job approval during his first term in office, among the lowest for post-World War II presidents. Only Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford had lower job approval averages. Obama’s first-term average is most similar to Bill Clinton’s. Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, and Dwight Eisenhower were the most popular first-term presidents.
Obama’s first-term approval average, like those of most presidents with lower first-term averages, was likely dragged down by a sluggish economy. Clinton and Reagan saw higher second-term approval as the economy improved. Obama’s approval rating has also shown improvement, with a 48.1% average in his fourth year in office after a 44.4% average in his third year.

IAllen West- Obama’s “Sobering” Inauguration Challenges
January 21, 2013
t’s inauguration day for the second term of President Barack Hussein Obama. The ironic thing is that when the celebration is over, and the hangovers subside, President Obama and his acolytes will have to look in the mirror and realize they have inherited their own self-created economic mess. These facts show what they have wrought since 2009:
There are 2.1 million more Americans NOT in the workforce.
A gallon of gas is up 79%
The Federal debt is up 55%
Food stamp recipients are up 46%
Americans in poverty are up 23%
Insurance premiums are up 17%
Share these facts with someone you know who voted for him!
America must no longer accept the rhetoric of blame and whining. Time to man up and offer solutions. “Taxing the rich,” gun control, and amnesty are campaign rally points, not governing principles. I for one shall be the eagle’s eye watching, commenting, and guarding the future for our next generation, ensuring they inherit a greater America, not a diminished liberal progressive nanny-state.- Allen West
