Barack Obama Pollster Says Reporters Should Stop Covering Polls in 2014 Because They Lack the Proper Context Only When Obama’s Approval Ratings Near 30′s

Barack Obama’s 2014 wish … The MSM does not report poll numbers …

How comical that Obama pollster only now does not want media to report on polling when BO’s approval rating is crashing and ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.

With President Barack Obama’s approval ratings in the low 40′s and heading for the 30′s, with Obamacare opposition at all-time highs and with Democrats now in serious trouble heading into the 2014 midterm elections, an Obama pollster now says that the media should not report polls in 2014. WHAT A JOKE. All of a sudden how the media reports polls is an issue as Obama’s job approval and trust polling has hid the skids. Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, wants the media to go a year without reporting polls, what else would he like the media not to report … the truth?

With Job Approval Numbers Like This, No Wonder Obama’s Minions Don’t Want Media to Report Them

After a year of seeing President Obama’s approval ratings plummet, the president’s pollster is offering a strikingly candid and pessimistic New Year’s resolution.

Reporters should go the next “year without reporting any public polling data,” Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, said.

His comments were made to reporter Mike Allen, who published them in his daily “Politico Playbook” morning newsletter on Tuesday.

Interesting that the Rasmussen poll above is the outlier, I thought the LEFT said it was a right-wing partisan poll?

President Barack Obama Says His Dream Job Would Be To Host ESPN’s Sports Center After He Retires

Obama says he wants to be an ESPN Sports Center host after he retires as president. Scared Monkeys says, why wait …

HOPE & CHANGE … Well now we know what Barack Obama’s master plan was in getting the job as president of the United States. It was a resume builder for his dream job, to be a host at ESPN’s Sports Center. As stated at Hot Air, now it makes sense why Obama has devoted so much time and effort to March Madness brackets, the Super Bowl, and the World Series for the last five years “while casually mucking up giant parts of his day job” as president. I say, why wait? Please just quit now and go to ESPN, please! Although I will also sadly say that he is probably more qualified to be an ESPN host than he is president. I guess we now know why he takes the job so seriously.

Just don’t let him be the new Jimmy “the Greek” picking sports games, as Barack the Socialist is not very good at picking “winners and losers”.  I can see Lee Corso on Game Day doing a perpetual loop of “NOT SO FAST!”


From The Hollywood Reporter:

If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.

At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.

Weasel Zippers some what agrees,  “Well, he is an expert at reading off a teleprompter”.

However, I would remind all as I did intern for a short period of time at a news outlet that everything is not provided to hosts on a teleprompter. Many times a producer is talking in your ear and you have to ad-lib. I would suggest that Barack Obama nt use the video below as his audition tape.

FINALLY: First Dog Bo Takes a Well Deserved Vacation … Working Class Dog with Campaign and Caviar Tastes


Rest well America, now that you know that Bo, the first Dog, has arrived safe aboard his own MV-22 Osprey flight to Martha’s Vineyard. That is correct, Bo is taking a vacation that most Americans can only dream of. He is ready to frolic on the sandy, non-diverse beaches of Martha’s Vineyard. Play golf and ride his bike, although I am not sure how he folds the putter with paws.  This is the visual image that is presented from this elitist president and the first family. But that’s OK, because he is BO and you are not. Who finds it offensive that the First Family has no budget, no skin in the game, does not sacrifice, but yet these are the things that are asked of us by Barack Obama? Obviously presidents take vacations, but this one sticks it in America’s face as so many of “We the People” struggle to gain full time employment and a record number of Americans are on food stamps. But it is all fine for Barack Obama, the first family and BO to take such a lavish vacation because it is on the tax payers dime.

This president Bo has some gall to actually portray himself as for the working American people when all he does is live “life styles of the rich and famous”. The American Thinker has it 100% correct, “My problem is a ‘tone deaf’ administration who does not understand that moving BO around at taxpayers’ expense is a bit too much when we are blaming the “sequester” for government services. How can this president keep a straight face and talk about sequestration and government cuts in spending and then take a vacation like this to The Vineyard?


Some fantastic sarcasm from The People’s Blog. However, sadly, like all great sarcasm, so much of it is based upon the truth.

Americans can go to bed with a story to warm the cockles of their hearts tonight. First Dog Bo has been successfully transported to join the First Family on their well-deserved vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.

Bo was transported from Washington to the island on board a specially modified Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey. For security reasons similar to those of Vice President Joe Biden, President Obama and First Dog Bo cannot travel on the same aircraft, thus making a separate flight necessary.

While some might consider using a $69.3 million aircraft to transport a dog a bit extravagant, it must be pointed out that this was paid for with taxpayer money, not from the First Family’s accounts. Neither President nor Mrs. Obama are spendthrifts and are very careful with the family’s budget.

It is important that Bo accompany the First Family on this vacation, which the President surely deserves after all the hard work he has put in over the past few days. The president recently returned from a tortuous tour of speech-making, some of which were delivered in benighted flyover places like Tennessee.

How would would the MSM act if a Republican president was going on such lavish and posh vacations at such extravagant expenses as the people suffered? I think you all know the answer.
