New York Times/CBS News Poll: Nearly 60% of Americans Think Race Relations Are Bad Under Obama

Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?

In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.

As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.

Obama Divider

Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.

A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.

The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.

Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.

Barack Hussein Obama Blames George W. Bush For Rise Of ISIS (VIDEO)

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THIS MISLEADER COULDN’T BLAME ANYONE ELSE FOR HIS FAILURES AS PRESIDENT …

THE COMMUNITY AGITATOR IS AT IT AGAIN …  In an interview with Vice News, Barack Hussein Obama was provided a soft ball interview with fellow Leftists. Fast forward to the 11:42 minute mark of the video below unless you want to annoy yourself and listen to Obama blather about global warming, his Unconstitutional acts and his terrible Iran deal. Obama is asked, how did ISIS become so popular, so fast? Barack Hussein Obama’s response was to blame Bush.  Just curious, isn’t there a statute of limitations on blaming Bush? Obama said, “ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion. Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”

NO YOU IDIOT … I THOUGHT YOU SAID ISIS WAS THE JV! Obama, you never took them seriously because you take nothing serious. YOU ARE TO BLAME FOR ISIS! INVASION? Mr. President, you are to blame for ISIS as ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion Obama’s knee-jerk reaction to leave Iraq too soon and create a power vacuum that allowed the terrorist group to grow. How unbecoming of a president to just not admit fault. Sorry Barack, but the world is a less safe place since you have been president.

From the Daily Caller:

President Obama pinned the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on former President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq while calling for more investment in diplomacy and education to stop terrorism.

“Two things: one is, ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion,” Obama said in an interview with VICE News. “Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”

Obama’s direct shot at Bush comes despite the fulfillment of his own campaign promises to pull troops out of Iraq. Obama completed the troop draw down in 2011 — an achievement the administration touted as a major victory but which left a power vacuum which ISIS is attempting to fill.

Fast forward to the 11:42

This is one sad and pathetic president.

Barack Hussain Obama, The Most Uninformed President Ever …. Claims He Learned of Hillary Clinton Used a Private, Nongovernment Email Account as Secretary of State Through News Reports

SORRY OBAMA, YOU CAN ONLY USE THAT SAME EXCUSE 7 TIMES, NOT 8 …

From the most transparent presidency ever comes yet another scandal, this time its Hillary email-gate. Barack Obama was asked by Bill Plant of CBS News in a sit down interview when was the first time he learned that Hillary Clinton was using an email system outside the US government for official business while she was Secretary of State? Obama’s response, more BS … “Ah, the sane time everybody else learned it through news reports“. Seriously Mr. Obama, is that your final answer? Let me just say this … YOU ARE A LIAR! We are supposed to believe that Barack Obama, the most tech savvy president ever, never received an email from Hillary Clinton from her private email account for official business? REALLY? No one believes that. You mean the tech savvy Obama doesn’t know that a government account ends in .gov? But then again, the Obama presidency is the most transparent ever, because the Liar is Chief says so. Are we really supposed to believe that if there was no news outlets, Obama would know nothing?

President Barack Obama said it was through news reports that he first learned that Hillary Rodham Clinton used a private, nongovernment email account while serving as his secretary of state.

In an interview Saturday with CBS News, Obama said he’s glad that Clinton has instructed that those emails about official business be disclosed. He also maintained that his administration remains the most transparent ever.

Clinton has drawn criticism for using a private server during the four years she was the nation’s top diplomat. Her sidestepping official government email also raises questions about whether all pertinent messages have been preserved as well as turned over for congressional investigations and lawsuits.

CBS NEWS:

President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton’s private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.

CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.

“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.

Mr. Obama’s comments follow a long week of media scrutiny surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private email address and the “home-brewed” server that hosted it.

“The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived,” Mr. Obama said. “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.”

Barack Obama is either the biggest and most pathetic liar we have ever had the misfortune as having as President of the United States or he is the stupidest, most uniformed and laziest one. Take your pick America. Barack Obama is telling us once again that he just learned about the latest scandal during his presidency regarding Hillary Clinton using private email account and server from the media. Sound familiar, as Yogi Berra would say, “its like deja vu all over again”. Didn’t Obama use this same lame excuse and lie for the following scandals:

  1. WH spox Carney says that President Obama only found out about the VA scandal recently from news reports. (VIDEO) But he of course was lying, he knew since 2008.
  2. Obama said that he first learned about IRS-gate from the the same news reports that I think most people learned about this.
  3. Obama and his surrogates have claimed he learned of several other scandals from broadcast or print news stories also include Operation Fast and Furious.
  4. Obama also said he only learned in the news the DOJ’s seizure of two months of Associated Press phone records.
  5. NSA Denies Obama Knew Of Spying On German Leader
  6. HHS Chief: President Didn’t Know Of Obamacare Website Woes Beforehand
  7. Obama Claims He Didn’t Know About the Petraeus Investigation

Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Barack Obama & Eric Holder for Failing to Attend Paris March: “Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”

 ”Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”

From The Daily Show,  Jon Stewart rips President Barack Obama for not attending the ‘Unity March’ in Paris, France on Sunday as world leader came together for freedom and liberty and against radical Islam. Stewart mocked Obama saying, how could Obama not be there, look how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized to.” One would think that alone would have had Obama running to the event.

“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”

(The money comments begin around the 4:15 minute mark of the video)

THE BLAZE:

Stewart, visibly perplexed, questioned how the leader of the free world failed to participate in the march.

How can Obama not be there?” he asked. “Look at how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized. He missed an opportunity.”

“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”

Stewart then slammed Attorney General Eric Holder for not representing the U.S. at the march, even though he was in Paris as it took place.

“What the f***?” the comedian said. “Eric Holder, you were in France! In Paris! At the time of the march and were like, ‘eh’?”

“Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally and the U.S. was a no-show? It’s going to take a lot to make up for this.”

President Barack Obama Snubs World Leaders and France, Skips Historic Unity Rally in Paris to Watch Football

UM, THIS IS WHAT LEADING FROM BEHIND LOOKS LIKE AMERICA, OR ZERO LEADERSHIP WHATSOEVER.

It is one thing for Barack Obama to treat “We the People” with such disdain, but for the International man of mystery and rock star to snub Europe like this is breathtaking. Barack Obama skipped the historic “Unity” rally in Paris, France that was attended by 50 other world leaders. Obama did not send VP Joe Biden or Secretary of State Kerry either. But wait until you hear what important things Obama was doing instead of attending a rally against radical Islam and in support of our allies … Obama was watching football.

Barack Obama Missing … Where’s Waldo?

APTOPIX France Attacks Rally

According to an administration official, President Obama spent part of his Sunday afternoon watching a National Football League game on television. Both games were broadcast hours after the march.

Heads of state from every major European power, including British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, joined French President Francois Hollande.

But the U.S.A. was M.I.A.

Obama_football3

You fools thought I actually believe I care about you and your war on radical Islam, I’m watching me some football.

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden remained in Washington, despite having no events on their public schedules Sunday. Secretary of State John Kerry was a world away in India, on a pre-planned trip.

Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris for a terrorism summit held on the march’s sidelines, but he slipped away and made appearances on four American morning television talk shows just as the incredible rally was starting.

The US was represented at the march only by Jane Hartley, the American ambassador to France who is unrecognizable to most Americans, let alone the rest of the world.

Now the world knows what we Americans have none for years, Obama is the worst president in American history.

Jeb Bush Says Barack Obama ‘Incompetent’ on Ebola

JUST HIS INITIAL RESPONSE JEB?

Former Florida Governor and noncommittal 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is calling our Barack Obama saying that his initial response to Ebola was “incompetent”. Jeb Bush made this comment as he was speaking in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University on Tuesday. One might first say, what response? Second, one would say, just his initial response Jeb, Obama continues to act incompetently when it comes to Ebola and the risk he is putting America and Americans at. Third, isn’t it par for the course, pardon the pun, for Barack Obama to act incompetently? That has been the theme to his presidency.

Why was there no policy or plan in place to deal with Ebola?

Obama_misleader

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is calling President Barack Obama’s initial response to Ebola “incompetent.”

“It looked very incompetent to begin with, and that fueled fears that may not be justified,” Bush said during a discussion at Vanderbilt University, according to The Tennessean. “And now you have states that are legitimately acting on their concerns, creating a lot more confusion than is necessary.”

Bush said the president was not “clear and concise” about his plans to combat Ebola, and described an incident in which anthrax was mailed in 2001 to a Florida-based tabloid, The National Equirer, during his time in office as an example of a better approach to addressing public fears.

“We gave people a sense of calm, what the plan was,” Bush said. “We talked in plainspoken English. We were totally engaged.”

EXIT COMMENT: Who finds it ironic that Jeb Bush is calling Obama “incompetent” when for years it was Democrats who called Jeb’s brother, President George W. Bush stupid?

WAPO-ABC News Poll: Obama Hits News Low with 40% Approval Rating … Only 33% Among Independents … Democrats in Serious Trouble

HEY AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?

According to the most recent WAPO-ABC News poll, Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with an approval rating at 40% and a 51% disapproval. Actually, it is curious as to why it is not even lower. Among Independents, Obama only has a 33% approval. Under Obama’s watch, everything is a colossal disaster. Nothing is going good in the United States or around the world.

The US economy is a floundering mess, illegal immigration, ISIS is on the rise and now we have the October surprise of Ebola in the United States. Barack Obama polls poorly on all major political issues as we are week’s ahead of the November midterm elections and early voting has begun  in some states.

Can you say EPIC FAILURE!!!

Poll_Obama_WAPO_101514

Heading into the final weeks of the midterm campaign, the political landscape continues to tilt in favor of the Republican Party, with President Obama’s overall approval rating at the lowest level of his presidency and GOP voters signaling greater likelihood than Democrats that they will cast ballots, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Americans are looking to November and beyond with dissatisfaction about the state of the country and the political leadership in Washington. Two-thirds say the country is seriously off-track. And while more than 6 in 10 say the president lacks a clear plan for governing, …

See all polling data HERE.

The overall job approval rating average is not much better for Obama. According to RCP, only 42.0% approve, while 52.4% disapprove.

UPDATE I: Trouble Looms for Obama, Democrats with Election Day 2014 Approaching.

Barack Obama and his political party are heading into the midterm elections in trouble. The president’s 40 percent job approval rating in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll is the lowest of his career – and the Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in polling back 30 years, with more than half of Americans seeing the party unfavorably for the first time.

The Republican Party is even more unpopular. But benefitting from their supporters’ greater likelihood of voting, GOP candidates nonetheless hold a 50-43 percent lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.

WAPO/ABC Poll: 67% of Americans Support a Travel Ban From Ebola Affected Countries of West Africa Like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea

TWO THIRDS, 67% OF AMERICANS ARE IN FAVOR OF TRAVEL BANS FROM COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY EBOLA … BARACK OBAMA GOLFS.

According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, 67% of Americans are in favor of travel bans for individuals from countries affected by Ebola, namely the West African ravaged countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. JUST 67%? Look for this number to grow considerably after a second transmitted case of Ebola has now been diagnosed in Dallas, Texas.

Ebola Travel ban

Nearly two-thirds of Americans are concerned about a widespread epidemic of the Ebola virus in the United States, and about as many in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the federal government is not doing enough to prevent it.

Indeed, more than four in 10 – 43 percent are worried that they or an immediate family member might catch the disease. That’s similar to the level of concern about other viral outbreaks in some previous ABC/Post polls, but more consequential, given Ebola’s high mortality rate.

From The Daily Caller points out that this is not a Republican or Democrat partisan issue … their is support on both sides to put a travel ban in place. Except from the always political, PC, community organizer, Barack Obama.

The public’s support for an Ebola travel ban is growing fast, prompting more Republican and Democratic politicians to demand a White House policy reversal.

Sixty seven percent of Americans said they would favor “restricting entry to the United States by people who’ve been in affected countries,” according to a new poll by The Washington Post and the ABC News.

Only 29 percent opposed the travel curbs on people arriving from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, where 4,000 people have already died from the lethal and invasive disease.

That attitude is spurring politicians to challenge President Barack Obama’s repeated opposition to any restrictions on the entry of apparently healthy Africans who may carry the disease.

Obama’s progressive-style opposition to the travel ban may become a problem for Democrats during the remaining three weeks of the 2014 campaign, especially if more Americans are infected with the deadly disease.

Barack Obama Plays 200th Round of Golf as the Second Ebola Case Emerges in Texas with Healthcare Worker Who Treated Thomas Eric Duncan

THIS PRESIDENT JUST DOES NOT GIVE A $HIT … 200th ROUND OF GOLF AFTER EBOLA PHOTO-OP.

As ‘We the People” of the United States of America learned that there was a second case of Ebola in Texas and the first ever transmitted case of Ebola in America, Barack Obama went golfing. Yup, after Americans learned that a female nurse who cared for and has extensive contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the individual who traveled to Dallas, Texas from Liberia who died from Ebola, had tested positive for Ebola … The Golfer in Chief once again went golfing for his 200th round since he became president. UNREAL. Obama just doesn’t care. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS MAN? Is he really that detached from reality that he does not comprehend that it is his role to protect America and Americans, not play golf?

Americans are wondering why flights to the US from Liberian are not being banned, nurses and healthcare workers are wondering why they are not being properly trained, I am wondering why those testing positive with Ebola are not sent to specific healthcare facilities that deal with Ebola and Obama plays golf.

Obama_golf2

After hearing the news shortly after midnight early Sunday morning that a second Ebola case had been diagnosed in a Texas Presbyterian Hospital nurse, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings stayed up through the night putting together an action plan.

In contrast, President Barack Obama’s response is being criticized as not adequately prioritizing the crisis. As Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren tweeted, Obama made a phone call to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and then “headed out to play golf.” CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller had posted that the press corps had been escorted to vans in the presidential motorcade to go to the golf course, but then were led back to the White House for a photo opp of Obama on the phone with Burwell that “lasted only 40 seconds.” Knoller tweeted several photos of Obama wearing a casual windbreaker, sitting at his desk in the Oval Office while speaking on the phone.

Knoller also reported shortly after 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time that Obama has arrived at Fort Belvoir Golf Club for “his 200th round of golf as President.” The Golf Channel confirmed that this was the 200th round of golf for Obama — or, as they dubbed him, the “First Duffer” — since he became president.

NBC/WSJ Poll: Large Majority of Americans Support Barack Obama Mission to Destroy ISIS, But Have No Confidence That He Can Do So

THIS IS WHY YOU NEVER ELECT, LET ALONE REELECT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR TO BE PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF … A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE.

It is a sad state of affairs in the White House these days and the people have lost confidence in President Barack Obama. In the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, although 62% of voters say that they support Obama’s decision to take action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, however, even more, 68%, say they have little to some confidence that he can reach his goals of degrading and eliminating ISIS. Sadly, that seems to be Obama’s own opinion as well with his mixed messages and a plan that counts on premises that he was against just months ago.

It is hard to win a war on terror when you cannot even bring yourself to say it.

Obama_Epic_Fail

Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants.

Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines.

The poll – conducted before the latest execution emerged – showed that a combined 68 percent of Americans say they have “very little” or “just some” confidence that Obama’s goals of degrading and eliminating the threat posed by ISIS will be achieved. Just 28 percent said they had “a great deal” or “quite a bit” of confidence. Still, 62 percent of voters say they support Obama’s decision to take action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, while 22 percent oppose it.

The NBC/WSJ poll also shows that just 38% of voters approve of Obama’s job in handling foreign policy.Which is actually higher than the most recent FOX News poll that has Obama’s approval rating in dealing with foreign police at 34% approve and 59% disapprove.
