NBC/WSJ Poll: American Public Grown Dissatisfied with President Obama Foreign Policy and National Security Decisions … 37% Approval on Foreign Policy

Obama Administration falling apart …

According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, just 37 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, which is an all-time low in the survey, while 57 percent disapprove, an all-time high. In the video below, NBC’s Chuck Todd shreds Obama and his poor poll numbers. This poll is nothing short of a disaster for Obama … When asked their predictions on the rest of Obama’s term in office, 54% said they thought he “cannot lead and get the job done,” compared with only 42% who said the opposite.

  • Job approval: 41% approve – 53% disapprove
  • Handling economy: 41% approve  – 54% disapprove
  • Country headed in right or wrong direction: 25% right direction – 63% wrong direction
  • Foreign policy: 37% approve – 57% disapprove

NBC News:

“This is a bad poll for President Obama, and not a good poll for anybody else,” said Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with Democrats Peter Hart and Fred Yang.

“Whether it’s [Vladimir] Putin, Ukraine, the VA hospitals, Bowe Bergdahl, the events have controlled Obama, rather than Obama having controlled the events,” Hart adds. “He may be winning the issues debate, but he’s losing the political debate, because they don’t see him as a leader.”

But it shows an American public that has grown dissatisfied with President Obama on foreign policy and national security decisions.

Just 37 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, which is an all-time low in the survey, while 57 percent disapprove, an all-time high.

What’s more, by a 44 percent-to-30 percent margin, Americans disagree with the Obama administration’s decision to secure the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five imprisoned Taliban fighters.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Blasts Barack Obama for the Bowe Bergdahl Fiasco and Demands for Obama’s Impeachment … “Mr. President, You are Destroying This Country”

WOW, JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO SAYS WHAT MANY AMERICANS FEEL, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH … MUST WATCH VIDEO!

Over the weekend in her opening monologue Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted President Barack Obama for the release of the GITMO 5, the five high ranking Taliban terrorists, in exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl. But this may have just been the final straw of many scandals and reprehensible acts against the military that question whether Obama is a real Commander in Chief.

Pirro went on to shred Obama in saying the following: “And make like you respect the military.  You call yourself a Commander in Chief, but what Commander in Chief does not support a surge but sends in 40,000 troops anyways? What Commander in Chief reduced benefits to those in the military, closed the Veteran War Memorial, reduced the army to pre-WWII levels, knowingly allows veterans to die in our hospitals. While replenishing the enemy in a time of war. Mr. President, you are destroying this country.”

Jeanine Pirro concluded with, “You are not a true Commander in Chief. We impeached a President for lying about sex with an intern. Your actions are far more egregious. demand impeachment.”

Mr. President, you did not just release them [GITMO 5] … you unleashed them!!!

Say Hello To the Five Identified Taliban Prisoners Released by Barack Obama from GITMO in Exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl … Meet the GITMO 5

The Taliban FIVE released from GITMO have been identified.

Yesterday, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the only living POW held by the Taliban in Afghanistan was freed in exchange for five Afghan detainees from GITMO. Barack Obama was quick to take the praise yesterday and use phrases that began with an “I”.     The president stated Bowe’s recovery is a reminder of America’s unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield, which may have the have an asterisk after it. Who is to say that terrorists do not try an do the same? As reported at TWS, now it is time to meet the GITMO 5, five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders in U.S. custody.

  1. Mullah Mohammad Fazl (Taliban army chief of staff)
  2. Mullah Norullah Noori (senior Taliban military commander)
  3. Abdul Haq Wasiq (Taliban deputy minister of intelligence):
  4. Khairullah Khairkhwa (Taliban governor of the Herat province and former interior minister)
  5. Mohammed Nabi (senior Taliban figure and security official)

More from The Weekly Standard: Five of the Most Dangerous Taliban Commanders in U.S. Custody Exchanged for American Captive.

The Taliban has long demanded that the “Gitmo 5” be released in order for peace talks to begin in earnest. The Obama administration has desperately sought to engage the Taliban as American forces are drawn down in Afghanistan, but those talks have gone nowhere to this point.  At first, the administration set preconditions for the talks, including that the Taliban break its relationship with al Qaeda. When it became clear that this was a non-starter, the administration decided to make the Taliban’s desired break with al Qaeda a goal, and no longer a precondition, for its diplomacy.

There is little hope that the peace talks will be more successful now. But the president seems to believe that Bergdahl’s exchange for the Gitmo 5 (who are reportedly being transferred to Qatar) may break the ice. “While we are mindful of the challenges, it is our hope Sergeant Bergdahl’s recovery could potentially open the door for broader discussions among Afghans about the future of their country by building confidence that it is possible for all sides to find common ground,” Obama said in his statement.

The Obama administration says that security measures have been put into place to make sure that the Gitmo 5 do not pose a threat to American national security. Let’s hope that is true; it certainly has not been the case with many ex-Gitmo detainees in the past.

Taliban Detainees Turned Over by U.S. in Bergdahl Deal:

MOHAMMED FAZL: A February 2008 Pentagon document said Fazlserved as Taliban deputy minister of defense and as a seniorcommander who was chief of staff of the Taliban army. The U.S.military said he was wanted by the United Nations for possiblewar crimes including the murder of thousands of Afghanistan’sminority Shi’ite Muslims between 1998 and 2001. It said he wasborn in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Uruzgan province. According toU.S. military documents, Fazl was also on the scene of aNovember 2001 prison riot that killed CIA operative JohnnyMicheal Spann, the first American who died in combat in theAfghan war. There is no evidence, however, that Fazl played anydirect role in Spann’s death.

MULLAH NORULLAH NOORI: A February 2008 Pentagon document said Noori was a senior Taliban military commander in the Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif during fighting in late 2001 after the U.S. invasion. It said he also was the Taliban governor for two provinces and was wanted by the United Nations for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Shi’ite Muslims. It said he was born in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Zabul province.

KHAIRULLAH KHAIRKHWA: A March 2008 Pentagon document said Khairkhwa was a senior Taliban official serving as the minister of interior, governor of Herat and a military commander. It said that after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, he represented the Taliban during meetings with Iranian officials seeking to support hostilities against U.S. forces in Afghanistan. It said he was born in 1967 in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province.

UPDATE I: What the hell was this TWEET from father of released Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Below is the tweet from Bob Bergdahl’s account, which was published May 28 and was deleted Saturday night.  Imagine that? He us still working to free all GITMO prisoners, what is up with this? God will repay the death of every Afghan child? Why didn’t the father of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl just end his tweet with allahu akbar?

Charles Krauthammer Rips Barack Obama On His Afghan Troop Withdrwal Announcement as “An Act of Personal Narcissism”

I think it is worse than a political act to announce the leaving,  its kind of an act of Personal Narcissism.

Charles Krauthammer  shredded President Barack Obama on ‘Special Report with Bret Baier’ stating that Obama’s announcement of troop withdrawal in Afghanistan was an act if personal narcissism. Earlier on Tuesday, Obama had announced plans to leave 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after the formal troop withdrawal at the end of this year. The politician, “Narcissist” in Chief Obama stated that he will bring those troops home in 2016 before the election. Krauthammer went on to say, slamming Obama for announcing a withdrawal in advance …

“When this was talked about a few months ago in the press, there was a mention of the fact that if the full withdrawal happened in 2016, that would allow Obama to leave office having fulfilled the promise to liquidate the wars.

Is that how we are now setting the strategic of the United States of America in a war zone, where so many have died and so much treasure and blood has been spent so that a president can leave office looking good?”

Fox News Poll: Barack Obama Hits All-Time Low Job Approval at 38%, 54% Disapprove … Only 33% Believe Obama has Improved America’s Image around the World

Barack Obama’s 38% job approval is well deserved, he did it the old-fashioned way … HE EARNED IT!!!

Can you say ‘EPIC FAILURE’ and it would appear the American people may finally be fed up with Obama’s disastrous presidency. According to the most recent Fox News poll, President Barack Obama has hit an all-time low in his job approval, as an anemic 38% approve of the job he is doing while a whopping 54% disapprove. But wait, a look inside the numbers and the news gets even worse for Obama and Democrats. Obama’s numbers on healthcare, the economy and foreign policy are abysmal.

Just how many Democrats are going to want this president near him during the 2014 elections?

Obama_Pout

For the first time in a Fox News poll, fewer than four voters in ten — 38 percent — approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent disapprove. Before now Obama’s worst job rating was 40-55 percent in November 2013. Last month 42 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved (February 2014).

Approval of Obama among Democrats stands at 71 percent, near its 69 percent record low (September 2013). For independents, 28 percent approve, which is also near the 25 percent all-time low among this group (July 2013). And approval of Obama among Republicans hits a new low of five percent.

Full poll results can be read HERE.

Most all of Obama’s poll numbers are now in the 30′s. Across the board whether it be domestic or foreign policy, Obama has failed. Now we can only hope America can survive another 3 years with this president.

  • Healthcare:  36% Approve -  59% Disapprove
  • Economy: 36% Approve -  58% Disapprove
  • Foreign Policy: 33% Approve – 56% Disapprove
  • Do you think the country is better off than it was five years ago, or not?  34% Yes -  60% No – 5% the Same

Wait, let’s try to find some good news for Obama and his lockstep Democrats in their poll. Oh sorry, there is none. On items that Americans were asked as to whether Barack Obama mostly succeeded or Mostly failed, Obama got an “F”. What happened to that president who said that he would make America respected once again in the world?

  • Making the country safer: 41% Mostly Succeeded – 48% Mostly Failed (In Oct. 2012 Obama’s poll numbers were  52% – 38%)
  • Improving health care: 36% Mostly Succeeded – 57% Mostly Failed
  • Creating new jobs: 33% Mostly Succeeded – 59% Mostly Failed
  • Improving America’s image around the world:  33% Mostly Succeeded – 59% Mostly Failed

The Narcissist in Chief Strikes Again … Barack Obama Honors Himself on 58th Anniversary of Rosa Parks Civil Disobedience Bus Arrest

This is just truly disturbing, this man has no shame …

On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake’s order that she give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled and was arrested.  Her arrest for civil disobedience for ignoring the Alabama law requiring black people to relinquish seats to white people when the bus was full sparked a 381-day boycott of the Montgomery bus system. It also gave rise to the 1596  Supreme Court decision banning segregation on public transportation. Rosa Parks was a woman of great courage, charter, strength, perseverance and principles. On this day we remember her for standing up, or we should say sitting down,  and saying no to what she knew was wrong.

Pic – Rosa Parks Wiki

The story behind the bus.

Parks’ act of defiance and the Montgomery Bus Boycott became important symbols of the modern Civil Rights Movement. She became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation. She organized and collaborated with civil rights leaders, including Edgar Nixon, president of the local chapter of the NAACP; and Martin Luther King, Jr., a new minister in town who gained national prominence in the civil rights movement.

At the time, Parks was secretary of the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP. She had recently attended the Highlander Folk School, a Tennessee center for training activists for workers’ rights and racial equality. She acted as a private citizen “tired of giving in”. Although widely honored in later years, she also suffered for her act; she was fired from her job as a seamstress in a local department store.

Today, President Barack Obama honored Rosa Parks on the 58th anniversary of her civil disobedience that would change America forever. Well kind of.  It would appear that President Barack Obama decided to honor this day by honoring himself. What a shock that Obama would make it about him. Really, has this man no shame? To remember and honor Rosa Parks on the the historic day what did Barack Obama do … why tweet a picture of himself of course.

Just another head shaking moment from this president. What is this guy, a one trick pony? He used the same pic last year to agitate and compare himself to her as well. Way to go out of your way and do something different to honor an American hero.

Obama_Rosa Parks

Some responses to Obama’s look at me, it is all about me remembrance. Oh, did I mention the world revolves around me, me, me, Barack Obama? The audacity of this man is repulsive. A note to Barack Obama, you would never know what it means to sacrifice like Rosa Parks and do something like she did that was so selfless and for others, not yourself. Hell, you can’t even sacrifice not golfing to do the right thing.

He Just Doesn’t Care … Barack Obama Stays Overnight in Florida to Play Golf as Millions of Americans Lose Their Insurance Because of Obamacare

FROM THE GOLFER IN CHIEF: LET THEM EAT THEIR CANCELED INSURANCE POLICIES …

Talk about a detached, cold fish president. As millions of Americans lose their insurance thanks to Obamacare, President Barack Obama goes golfing yet again. How is it possible some one could be so uncaring, so devoid of compassion and so clueless as while millions of Americans get insurance cancellation notices, after Obama had promised that if they liked their healthcare plan they could keep it, he goes golfing. The Obamacare website Healthcare.gov is a complete disastrous joke, the Obamacare policies are a lie and individuals are in turmoil, yet this rodeo clown goes golfing. Obama provided a faux-apology Thursday night to the American people who have been affected by his lies, yet Obama still thinks as Americans suffer due to his actions, he just goes golfing. But hey, he is really sorry America.

Sorry, but there is something seriously not right with an individual who acts like nothing is wrong, when nothing is going right.

Obama_Golf3

Shhh, don’t tell anyone I really could give a hoot about the middle class, or Americans in general

President Obama appears to have remained overnight in Miami – incurring extra costs for taxpayers – just to play golf in the Florida sunshine.

Obama headed out this morning to the exquisite Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale, a trip that required a half hour motorcade from his hotel his Miami. And it will be well worth the trip, at least for him. According to the course website:

As the Washington Times points out this is the 150th round of golf for Obama in 5 years.

Barack Obama, the Narcissist in Chief Says Says “I’ve Been Burned” By Obamacare Website … Dude, You are Not the Victim, the American People Are (Update: Obama Does Not Think He Lied)

What else should we expect from Barack Obama, the Narcissist in Chief ? For Obama its all about him, as he uses the words like “I” and “me”. This president just can’t help himself. Obama was supposed to be making an apology to “We the People” for the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare, for millions for people losing their insurance, for the misrepresentation and lies that Obama spewed regarding his signature piece of legislation, but instead he made himself the victim and then tried to catch himself.

During Barack Obama’s interview with NBC Political Director Chuck Todd Thursday night NBC’s Nightly News, President Obama said that “I’ve been burned by a website.” I? Excuse me Mr. President, you have been burned by the Healthcare.gov, really? This is exactly why no one considers Obama a leader and why thy refer to him as leading from behind. How does it even cross his mind as the first thing to say that he has been burned?

From News Busters:

BARACK OBAMA: I am deeply frustrated about how this website has not worked over the first couple of weeks. And, I take responsibility of that. My team takes responsibility of that. And we are working every single day, 24/7, to improve it. And it’s better now than it was last week. It’s certainly a lot better than it was on October 1st. Having said that, given that I’ve been burned already with a website–well, more importantly the American people have been burned by a website that’s been dysfunctional, what we’ve also been doing is creating a whole other set of tracks, making sure that people can apply by phone effectively, making sure people can apply in person effectively.

Who cares about the stupid website that wen all is said and done will probably cost tax payers $1 billion, Americans are pissed that you knowingly lied to them about being able to keep their doctor if they liked their doctor, being able to keep their health insurance if they liked their health care coverage and lowering costs. Barack Obama has a huge credibility problem and it will most likely sink his presidency and Democrats.

UPDATE I: NBC Political Director Chuck Todd Interviewed by Hugh Hewitt … Todd said, “You know, he does not believe he lied on this, and that’s the sense I get.”

So the serial liar thinks that he did not lie. Some are using the term “pathological” liar to describe Obama, but I have to disagree. A pathological liar is defined as an individual who frequent and repeated lies for which no apparent psychological motive or external benefit can be discerned. What Barack Obama does is perform regular lies, ones that are goal-directed and are told to obtain external benefit.  Obama is not lying, according to Obama, he is just following the teachings of Saul Alinsky of saying one thing and doing another. These lies were purposeful and with a designed outcome.

You know, he does not believe he lied on this, and that’s the sense I get. I mean, I think that that’s, he’s taken issue with that before with folks off the record, and I got it’s a sensitive issue, felt like he did not sit there and say he intentionally lied. He said that he wanted to, he thought he was going to be able to keep this promise. I thought what was revealing in that answer, when I asked him that direct question about this, was this a political lie that you started to believe it, was he talked about well, you know, it turns out we had trouble in crafting the law.

However, the American people know he lied, those who have lost their instance and cannot keep their doctors. Many of which are Democrats. So the real question is, what do we do with a president who lies and its not about sex? Answer … IMPEACH!!!

Barack Obama and Biden Go Golfing after Syria Presser … This is Suppsed to Show that Syria Poses a Clear & Immediate Threat to America?

Really, Barack Obama goes on TV and has a presser from the Rose Garden of the White House telling us how imperative it is to attack Syria for gassing their people and then he goes play golf with Biden?

How can any one take what Obama says seriously, if he does not? What kind of a person tries to play on people’s emotions to drag them into a Middle East Civil Wat conflict by talking about children being gassed to death, then is so flip and plays golf? Sorry folks, this dude has issues. There is something not right with some one who operates like this. It is all like his job as President is just a joke to him and gets in the way of his golf game and vacations. I guess this is what a “community agitator” does, stir the pot and then just go about like business as usual.It would appear Legal Insurrection has the same issue.

It’s NOT the Golf itself, but the ability of Obama to compartmentalize.

One moment he’s giving a statement to the world about what he describes as a heinous breach of longstanding international norms the gravity of which has brought him to the decision to launch military action with almost no allied support, subject only to timing (and not necessarily even subject to congressional approval).

Within an hour or so he’s on the links.

Because after all, a poor economy, record food stamp participation, high unemployment, and bringing the US into a military action can’t stop Obama from playing his rounds of golf.  Hey Obama, it’s 3 am and you are failing miserably and making the US look like a laughing stock.

Twwe_Obama_golf_Syria

As the Politico reported, Obama’s motorcade left the White House at 2:30 p.m., about 30 minutes after completing his statement. I wonder if he showed up for his tee time, 35 minutes late?

Obama goes golfing after deciding on Syria military strike … Don’t let a crisis you are peddling to the American people as in our national interest get in the way of playing golf.

President Obama played golf on Saturday following his major announcement that he had decided the United States should take military action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for using chemical weapons on civilians during that country’s civil war.

The president and Vice President Biden left for the course within minutes of his Rose Garden speech in which he asked Congress to first approve such action.
