Barack Obama, the Divider in Chief: Obama Blames Racism Rather than Poor Job Performance For His Lower Approval Ratings
Once again Barack Obama cries racism instead of taking responsibility for his poor job performance … Obama plays the race card yet again.
In an interview with The New Yorker, Barack Obama blamed racism for his falling job approval and popularity numbers. Racial tensions is the reason why his popularity among white voters has waned within the past two years, are you kidding me? Sorry, but this man is a despicable human being and a poor excuse for a president who would continually try to divide a country between races and blame racism for his poor job as president. Disgusting!!! Obama thrives off of using the race card. This is why you never elect a community agitator as president.
Of course Obama could not look at the obvious to determine why his popularity among white voters has fallen in the past couple of years. Certainly it has nothing to do with the on going disastrous economy and Obama’s failure to create jobs. Also, it has nothing to do with Obama’s lies to the American people regarding Obamacare and that you could keep your insurance plan, if you liked it. It has nothing to do with other scandals like IRS-gate, Benghazi-gate and NSA-gate, where Americans no longer consider Obama trustworthy. And of course his failure in foreign policy has nothing to do with it either.
A note Barack Obama, when one is given the benefit of the doubt and then fails miserably on all aspects of their job, including their signature piece of legislation, you are deemed a failure and lose the support of the people.
President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today.
“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition.
“Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president,” Obama said in his most direct comments on how race has affected his political standing since he’s been in office.
By the way, it is not just white voters where Obama has fallen badly in the polls. Barack Obama is down 23 points with Hispanics as well. Is that racism too? So are all of the following from the chart below racist too … they all have lower Obama approval numbers than 2012, including Blacks, Hispanics, Non-whites, women, men, Independents, moderate Democrats … pretty much everyone.

Barack Obama Weekly Address: The Imperial Sith Lord Obama Says, “Where Congress Isn’t Acting, I’ll Act on My Own”
Barack Obama’s Weekly Address, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, LIE, LIE, LIE …
As if President Barack Obama has not done enough damage to the economy and the country, Obama is now doubling down and going try and finish the job of destroying America. Obama claims that 2014 is going to be a year of action and during his Weekly Address that he will move forward and act alone without Congress on certain issues if he can’t gain the legislative body’s cooperation. His exact words were, “I want to work with Congress on proven ways to create jobs.” Work with Congress, since when? Proven ways, like what … increasing the minimum wage, Obamacare, extending unemployment, amnesty for illegals and raising taxes? All are proven ways to reduce jobs and create a further government dependent class. This rhetoric is coming off his earlier comments this week, that he has a pen. This is not leadership, it’s authoritarianism and Unconstitutional.
This lying clown has been promising jobs for 5+ years and all his policies have provided us is extended long term unemployment, record number of Americans on food stamps and record low job participation rates.
So the Sith Lord says he is going to act alone and act without Congress. Take a good look at what Obama considers his signature piece of legislation. Obamacare was passed with no GOP support and he had to beg and make sweetheart deals like the Corn Husker kickback and the Louisiana Purchase to bribe Democrats into supporting it for passage. Just curious, how is Obamacare working out for America? Do you honestly want this man f’ing up immigration and the rest of the economy?
However, it is not the GOP that Obama needs to worry about in 2014, it is his own Democrat party. With Barack Obama’s job approval ratings barely in the 40′s and with Obamacare a continuing nightmare for Americans, Obama is not a wounded lame duck president, he is a toxic one. What Democrat is going to want to sign on to any unpopular Obama idea and if Obama plays the “executive order” card to bypass Congress, he will further destroy the Democrats in the 2014 midterms.
Politifacts 2013 LIE OF THE YEAR … Barack Obama on Obamacare: “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It” … #YouLie
It’s Official, Obama is the Lying King: Congratulations President Barack Obama, you have just won your most deserved award since you have been president, ‘Lie of the Year,’ as opposed to a Nobel Peace prize.
It not only may be the lie of the year, it might be the lie of the decade and be remembered as one of the top lies of the century. The Washington Post Politifacts has named its 2013 Lie of the Year and the winner is Barack Obama and “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It”. I think there are 5 million + individuals who have lost their healthcare coverage thanks to Obamacare who would agree. And most likely 40-50 million more who will do the same when the employer mandate of Obamacare kicks in.
So many lies, so many to choose from when it comes to the least transparent president in history and one who may have perpetrated one of the greatest frauds on the American people, ever.
It was a catchy political pitch and a chance to calm nerves about his dramatic and complicated plan to bring historic change to America’s health insurance system.
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” President Barack Obama said — many times — of his landmark new law.
But the promise was impossible to keep.
So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong.
Boiling down the complicated health care law to a soundbite proved treacherous, even for its promoter-in-chief. Obama and his team made matters worse, suggesting they had been misunderstood all along. The stunning political uproar led to this: a rare presidential apology.
For all of these reasons, PolitiFact has named “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” the Lie of the Year for 2013. Readers in a separate online poll overwhelmingly agreed with the choice. (PolitiFact first announced its selection on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper.)
For four of the past five years, PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year has revolved around the health care law, which has been subject to more erroneous attacks than any other piece of legislation PolitiFact has fact-checked.
And even after it is obvious that Obama lied, Weasel Zippersopines, there are many on the LEFT that still insist Obama did not lie.
Even Liberal Democrat Howard Dean Asks, “I Wonder If Obama Has the ‘Legal Authority to Do This’ Regarding Obama’s Fix (VIDEO)
Folks, even Howard Dean can see this is tyranny …
Following Barack Obama’s speech where he proposed a “keep your plan” fix for Obamacare, former Vermont Governor, DNC Chair and Democrat presidential candidate Howard Dean pondered while on MSNBC whether Emperor Obama had the legal authority to even propose such a “FIX” as the law had been passed by Congress. Hmm, many Conservatives are asking the same question regarding Obama’s actions. Wow, does that make Dean a racist?
“I wonder if he has the legal authority to do this, since this was a congressional bill that set this up?”
So what is it with Barack Obama? Does he think because it is called Obamacare that he has the legal authority to change any part of the law he feels by executive fiat? Imagine if a Republican did that with abortion? When Republicans confront Obamacare, they are constantly told that it is the law of the land. Really? If it is, then how come Barack Obama thinks he can just change it himself? Maybe the real probalem with Obama is that he was too busy reading the Communist Manifesto as a youth instead of watching School House Rock and “I’m Just a Bill”.
More Executive Orders from The Imperial President Obama Creating “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” to Implement “Climate Change” Agenda
WAKE UP AMERICA, STOP THE TYRANNY!!! Barack Obama, the Imperial president is at it again with his global warming, oh sorry, “climate change” agenda …
The Halloween season, but nothing should be more scary to Americans that Barack Obama and his liberal, socialist agenda. It would appear that the imperial president is at it again, as The Daily Caller reports, on Friday issued an executive order titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.” Obama knows that nothing like this would ever pass through Congress, so instead the Obamamessiah looks to devastate, regulate and control the economy even more through executive fiat. As if Obama has not done enough to destroy jobs, put record number of people on food stamps, destroy the coal industry, devastate the economy with Obamacare and now this? He will not be happy until he turns the United States on its head into something that you do not even recognize.
This is what you get from a community agitator, an individual that says the hell with the US Constitution and looks to just force his agenda without consent of the will of the people. Folks, this is what tyranny looks like. Obama is proving to be nothing more than a menace.
Brought to you by the president who delivered “cash for clunkers,” the “billion dollar “stimulus” plan, promises of a job recovery and Obamacare that has caused more Americans to lose their insurance than enroll in it.
President Barack Obama has given the nation a new “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” that expands government bureaucrats’ role in how Americans use their lands, energy, waters and property.
Obama announced the executive order Friday, the day after Halloween.
The order is titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.”
The new order was issued even though recent scientific data have contradicted claims that use of carbon energy — such as gasoline — will drive up the world’s temperature and induce damaging climate change. Average temperatures have leveled for more than a decade, despite the sharply rising use of carbon energy in China and other countries.
U.S. use of carbon energy has stabilized with increasing market-driven efficiency and tightening regulations. (Read Full story)
Just curious Barack, how is it possible that the Earth has gone through a myriad of climate changes, both cooling and warming, before man ever had any type of impact on the environment?
This is just another federal government grab … when will Americans ever take back their liberty and freedom on which this country was founded?
CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo Says ObamaCare Forcing America to Become a Part-Time Employment Country as Businesses Shift to Part-Time Workers
The heck with the Obamacare website glitches, Obamacare has much worse consequences on America and Americans … Obamacare is a full-time job killer.
CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo said on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday that “ObamaCare is forcing businesses to shift to part-time workers.” She went on to say that America was “becoming something of a part-time employment country.” However, no one in the MSM wants to address the fact that Obama’s signature piece of legislation is causing American workers to lose their full-time jobs. Isn’t that special, in order for a small minority of people to have access to insurance, all Americans are forced to buy insurance or else pay a tax, and workers are losing money in their pay checks as businesses shift to a part-time work model. Thanks Barack Obama.
Intentional or irony … Obama’s signature piece of legislation kills FT jobs and affects the middle class, the very people he claims to be for? Is it any wonder why Obama is the worst jobs president in modern times.
Maria Bartiromo is sadly100% correct. Check out Zero Hedge, where of the 953,000 jobs created in 2013, 77%, or 731,000 are part-time ones. Many businesses are are now only hiring PT employees in order to avoid Obamacare or are shifting those that were full-time to part-time. Who didn’t see that coming?
Hmm, I guess Barack Obama must have missed the civics class that discussed the three branches of government and that the legislative branch consisted of the US Senate and House of Representatives.
From the Divider in Chief … Yesterday, the imperial president lectured Americans and the GOP stating, “Win an election” if you want change. Really? Talk about your double standards. Like Democrats have never pushed for change and their agenda with a GOP president. Is President Obama unaware that the GOP actually does have control of the House of Representatives? Last time I remembered there was a system of checks and balances withing our Republic to prevent exactly what Obama is espousing. Some one might also want to ask Emperor Obama if the same will be true in the future when the GOP has control of government? Is he saying that the minority party in office has no voice? Hey Barack, remember this little document called the US Constitution? Seriously, this guy is dangerous. This is what tyranny looks like America.
President Barack Obama challenged the GOP to end political brinkmanship and said Republicans should “win an election” if they so badly wish to change his policies.
In his first extended remarks since the government reopened, Obama said that the public has grown “fed up” with its government and urged lawmakers to move past the conflict of the past few weeks.
“To all my friends in Congress, understand that how business is done in this town has to change,” he said.
“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election,” The president said. “But don’t break it.
A note to Democrats, be very careful what you ask for or what your Obamamessiah says as you may be on the other end of the stick in the not too distant future and his words are going to come back and haunt you.
Liberal Sports Commentator Bob Costas Does DNC Infomercial on “Redskins” Rant During Cowboy-Washington NFL Game
Thanks Bob Costas for that DNC infomercial … More liberal media bias.
As if following the lead of Barack Obama on suddenly making the name ‘Redskin’s’ the most important issue in America as we face a government shutdown, debt limit default, over-spending, jobless recovery, and record number of American on food stamps, NBC’s Bob Costas decided to provide us with some perils of wisdom to pressure the Washington Redskins into changing their name. Yup, during half-time of last nights Cowboys – Redskins game, Costas provided a free DNC commercial.
So, at halftime of the Sunday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington REDSKINS, Bob Costas decided to lay down some wisdom on America. He started out okay in his discussion of Obama’s new pet project, to pressure Washington into changing the name of the football team, but almost at the end when you were sufficiently sucked in, he threw out the bombshell…..the use of the term “Redskins” is indeed offensive … a nasty slur.
And there you have it. Just like Global Warming, um, I mean Climate Change, the debate about the term “Redskins” is now settled science. Expect for Washington to be changing their name very soon.
Just curious Bob, you have been a sports announcer for 30+ years, why is it all of a sudden that you decided to speak out against the name change? Oh that’s right, you got the talking points ok to do so from Barack Obama. Even though a majority of Americans, including Native Americans are against a name change. But Bob and Barack know better.
Once Again Barack Obama Uninformed … Turns Out that an Overwhelming Majority of Americans Do Not Want Redskin’s Name Changed, Including Native Americans
Just how uninformed is the smartest President ever?
Over the weekend President commented that if he was the owner of the Washington Redskins, he would consider changing the name. Obama’s exact words were that if the name Redskins offended “a sizable group of people” then the name should be changed. HUH? Maybe Obama should have done his home work before he mouthed off about something that he knows little about. But then again, he has a history of making divisive comments and acting “stupidly”. As it turns out, a sizable amount of people are for the Redskins name to stay as it is. An AP poll from April 2013 shows that 79% of Americans believe that the Redskins should keep their name as is. How is that for wide-spread support Mr. President?
One would think that there are greater priorities as President than the name of a privately owned professional sports team
But a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows that nationally, “Redskins” still enjoys widespread support. Nearly four in five Americans don’t think the team should change its name, the survey found. Only 11 percent think it should be changed, while 8 percent weren’t sure and 2 percent didn’t answer.
Although 79 percent favor keeping the name, that does represent a 10 percentage point drop from the last national poll on the subject, conducted in 1992 by The Washington Post and ABC News just before the team won its most recent Super Bowl. Then, 89 percent said the name should not be changed, and 7 percent said it should.
The AP-GfK poll was conducted from April 11-15 and included interviews with 1,004 adults on both land lines and cell phones. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
Attorney Lanny Davis responded for the Washington Redskins in an effort to inform Obama.
Hours after President Barack Obama said he would “think about changing” the Redskins team name because it offends “a sizable group of people,” the organization responded in a statement through attorney Lanny Davis.
“As a supporter of President Obama, I am sure the President is not aware that in the highly respected independent Annenberg Institute poll (taken in 2004) with a national sample of Native Americans, 9 out of 10 Native Americans said they were not bothered by the name the ‘Washington Redskins.’” Davis said. “The President made these comments to the Associated Press, but he was apparently unaware that an April 2013 AP poll showed that 8 out of 10 of all Americans in a national sample don’t think the Washington Redskins’ name should be changed.
According to the most recent Gallup poll, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to 41% with a 52% disapproval.
Could the government shutdown, the pain that Obama is trying to inflict on Americans like WWII vets, and the absolute disastrous roll out of Obamacare he the reason why Obama is seeing extremely negative job approval numbers? The RCP average off job approval polls has 43.7% approve and 50.9% disapprove. There is a reason why they call Obama a “community” agitator … and what he is doing now during the government shutdown is simply disgusting.
Here’s to you America!!!
It’s the Chicago way … Barack Obama and Democrats are trying to cause as much pain to Americans as humanly possible in this government shutdown and it may come back to bite them in a major way. More importantly, it better. A Park Service ranger spoke out against what he called “disgusting” tactics.
“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
What a joke … 99% of Obamacare applications hit a wall.
It’s a batting average that won’t land the federal marketplace for Obamacare into the Healthcare Hall of Fame.
As few as 1 in 100 applications on the federal exchange contains enough information to enroll the applicant in a plan, several insurance industry sources told CNBC on Friday. Some of the problems involve how the exchange’s software collects and verifies an applicant’s data.
“It is extraordinary that these systems weren’t ready,” said Sumit Nijhawan, CEO of Infogix, which handles data integrity issues for major insurers including WellPoint and Cigna, as well as multiple Blue Cross Blue Shield affiliates.
