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.
Will President Barack Obama take Bill Clinton’s advice not to patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them?
Many Democrats consider former President the voice of reason and the elder statesman of their party. Even with his sordid past and numerous moral indiscretions, Bill Clinton is considered the wild card of the party and the reason why Barack Obama won reelection. During the 2012 Democrat national convention Clinton stated that not even he could have fixed the economy that Obama inherited, which of course was a bold face lie, but in doing so paved the way for an Obama victory. Now the voice of the Democrat party Bill Clinton is warning Democrats not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among Americans. Clinton told Democrats not to trivialize them and “Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them.”
Former President Bill Clinton warned a group of top Democratic donors at a private Saturday meeting not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among many Americans.
“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.
“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world.”
Clinton dedicated a substantial portion of his 40-minute address before a joint meeting of the Obama National Finance Committee and a group of business leaders to the issue of guns and gun control, saying that it was a test-case for President Barack Obama’s grass-roots movements. (POLITICO was given a transferable ticket by an invited member of the committee.)
But it is hard to imagine that Obama and Democrats will not act in a smug and arrogant manner when it comes to gun control. President Obama is a “community agitator” and divider, not one who governs by consensus. They cared little of the American people when it came to Obamacare when they rammed the government control of health care down “We the People’s” throats. Then they saw that instead of being punished for their behavior, they were reelected. Barack Obama has already stated when it comes to the gun owner, they “cling to their guns and religion”. One can only imagine how understanding he will be of them after reelection and his efforts to push forth his liberal, anti-Second Amendment agenda. But as the PJ Tatler stated, “if there is one issue that can cut through party and even ideology, it is gun control and the passions that are raised when government feels it has the power to infringe on the rights of gun owners.”
Who said that Clinton stands with the president? In his closing remarks Bill Clinton seemed to be urging Democratic lawmakers to vote against the president:
Clinton closed his remarks with a warning to big Democratic donors that ultimately many Democratic lawmakers will be defeated if they choose to stand with the president.
“Do not be self-congratulatory about how brave you for being for this” gun control push, he said. “The only brave people are the people who are going to lose their jobs if they vote with you.”
The Bubba Bailout in Pennsylvania … Clinton Called in the Drag Obama Across the Finish Line Complete with Clinton Theme Song
FORWARD? I must have missed something … is Bill Clinton running for a third presidential term?
HEY BARACK … VOTERS KNOW THAT HOPE AND CHANGE IS NOT THE SAME AS A MAN FROM HOPE.
How pathetic is Obama’s reelection campaign, they are 100% depending on former President Bill Clinton to drag Obama across the finish line. This is how an incumbent president runs a campaign when they have had four failed years on the economy, jobs and foreign policy. Obama can’t run on his own record so he coops the Clinton presidency … complete with stealing his Fleetwood Mac theme music. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
The reality for Democrats is that they wish Bill Clinton was running for a third term as opposed to Obama. They probably would have preferred Hillary to Obama as well. I personally believe that having Clinton on teh campaign trail with Obama is a losing proposition for the president. Too many voters are looking at Clinton and longing for the days of yore and wondering why a so-called “Hope and Change” president is not the same as a Man from Hope.
Serious, how does Obama claim his 2012 message is “FORWARD” when he is going backwards to the 1990′s and Bill Clinton? By the way Barack, unless you are planning on having a dot.com bubble in the economy, it is going to be pretty hard to recreate the Obama years. You would have a better chance with an intern in a blue dress.
Way to Stay Classy Democrats … Bill Clinton Politicizes Hurricane Sandy, Compares Romney Election to Hurricane Sandy
I guess when Obama and Democrats accuse Romney of murder, being compared to a deadly hurricane is par for the course.
It did not take long at all for Democrats to politicize Hurricane Sandy. Yesterday, former president Bill Clinton used the threat of the pending hurricane to compare to next week’s Presidential election.Comparing the election to a deadly hurricane, really Mr. Clinton? Way to keep in classy Slick Willy.
“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”
Although, Clinton says that unless the “right” decision is made we are facing a storm worse than Hurricane Sandy. Maybe he is referring to Obama’s reelection as what could be worse?
Democrat Pat Caddell: “There Is a Purposeful Conscious Effort to Suppress News That Might Hurt Obama” (Video)
From liberal media bias … to the Press now actively engaged in determining an election … “Purposeful Conscious Effort to Suppress News That Might Hurt Obama”
During an interview on The O’Reilly Factor, Democratic pollster Pat Caddell told Bill O’Reilly tonight that there is a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might hurt Obama. In a speech seen n the below VIDEO, Caddell stated that if any other President of either party, whether it was Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Ronald Regan, or George H.W. Bush had a terrorist incident and got on a plane and flew off to a fund raiser in Las Vegas, they would have been crucified by the press. However, not for Barack Obama, nothing was said at all, and nothing will be said.
“Purposeful Conscious Effort to Suppress News That Might Hurt Obama”
VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
“Whether its organized or a straight conspiracy and we have gone down a slippery slope here. Look Bill, we’ve had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. And it’s gotten worse starting in 2008. But now we’ve got a press that is actively engaged in a reelection – putting out a narrative that Romney is a loser, they’re running polls… But Romney’s not my issue here. More importantly they not only decided to support Obama. On this issue the last two weeks what we see is a press that has decided that it will not tell the American people the truth.”
Charles Krauthammer commented on Fox News last night following former President Clinton’s speech at the DNC, Krauthammer stated that he that that Bill Clinton struck out. He stated that it was a typical Clinton speech, but was one of the strangest nomination speeches ever given, It sounded more like a campaign speech for a third Clinton term. Krauthammer went on to say that no other president could have done any better than this or fix this, referring to the American economy. However, Barack Obama’s slogan in 2008 was, “yes we can”. Krauthammer considered Clinton’s speech as a wasted opportunity.
This is a must see VIDEO, Krauthammer explains in great deal the differences between Obama and Clinton and how both went about their second two years in office in completely opposite ways. Clinton went to the middle and compromised with Republicans following the 1994 Republican revolution. In contrast Obama doubled down and went further Left after the 2010 midterm shellacking.
“I think it was a giant swing and a miss. Mighty Casey, and Bill Clinton is a natural, struck out on this. I don’t think it will move the needle whatsoever… The This was one of the strangest nomination speeches ever given.”
Full text of Bill Clinton’s speech can be read HERE.
Who really believes that Barack Obama is going to fix the economy like Bill Clinton did back in the day? First of all there is no dot.com bubble. Second, Obama is no Clinton. Third, before everyone starts singing the glowing praises of Clinton, he did leave office in a down turn in the economy as the dot coms fell apart. Only 32% of American likely voters think Obama and Clinton see eye to eye on the economy.
So Bill Clinton is to Praise Obama at the 2012 DNC Convention … Wasn’t it Just a “A Few Years Ago Clinton Said, This Guy Would Have Been Carrying Our Bags” … Clinton Praises Romney
Barack Obama … Don’t ask for things it might come true …
There is an old saying when it comes to TV shows that have hung on too long, be careful when they add a baby or a pet to the series. In Democrat politics its, be very careful when you need Bill Clinton in order to sell your presidency.
How desperate and really far behind is President Barack Obama in the 2012 Presidential campaign against GOP challenger Mitt Romney? So much that he had to ask political foe, former President Bill Clinton to come to his aid. Sorry, but these two do not like each other. Bill Clinton has a short memory as to how Team Obama savaged Hillary during the 2008 Democrat primary.It was Bill Clinton who accused Team Obama of playing the race card against him.
It was not too long ago that Clinton stated that “a few years ago, This Guy [Obama] would have been carrying our bags” So why is Bill Clinton not being branded a racist for such a comment? Even though we know Clinton is not, hoe has that stopped Obama from using the race card in the past? Instead, Obama is in such desperate straights that he needs Clinton to win back Democrats scratching their heads as to why they voted for Obama and Independents. However, the two Presidents could not be farther apart in leadership or politics.
Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”
This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama:
Much to the Surprise of the liberal MSM, Bill Clinton praised Mitt Romney and said “Bain Is Good Work…”
Clinton praising Romney’s Sterling Business career
Bill Clinton accuses Obama and his minions of playing the race card against him
Bill Clinton will be giving the Keynote speech this week at the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, DC. Really, does Obama want a Democrat that is more popular, more of a leader and more of a success as President speaking at this event? Most Democrats are just going to long for the days of Clinton and ask why they can’t have a third Clinton term as opposed to another failed four years of Obama.
Make no mistake about it, I am no fan of Bill Clinton. However, Clinton knew enough after getting his butt handed to him in the 1994 midterm election, better know as the Republican Revolution, Clinton then moved to the center to govern and with bipartisan support with the GOP. Barack Obama did just the opposite. After receiving a shellacking in 2010 at the hands of the GOP, Obama doubled down and moved even farther to the LEFT. No one is going to buy Clinton praising Obama’s policies and the economy is moving forward.
WOW, Morgan Freeman Says Obama Isn’t America’s First Black President … “he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”
WHO KNEW BARACK OBAMA IS MIXED-RACE?
From Oscar Award winning actor and liberal Morgan Freeman’s lips to your ears … Barack Obama is not the first black American President. Hmm, wasn’t Obama swept into office on the notion that he was the first Black American president? Many misguided folks thought they were righting a wrong and is became a feel good story that would heel the wounds of a country that has had its history of racial issues. Of course how’s that “hopey changey” thing working out for you? But,not so fast. It would appear that it was all in vain as according to Morgan Freeman, Barack Obama is not black enough to be the ‘first black” elected President … he is instead the first mixed-race President. Gee, where was that narrative in 2008?
Audio Hat Tip: News Busters
As we always say, its not about the color of one’s skin, its about the content of one’s character. Remember that when voting and in every day life.
“First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him … they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America,” Freeman said. “There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”
Unreal Even for Bill Clinton, Slick Willie Poses for Pic with Porn Stars Brooklyn Lee & Tasha Reign … AVN’s “Best New Starlets” Diane Kruger, Joshua Jackson in Monaco (Update: Clinton Called Them Over)
Once again it all depends what is, is … or who is a porn star is.
Former President Bill Clinton just can’t help himself. Clinton, who embarrassed himself and disgraced the office of the US Presidency with his “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” Monica Lewinsky sex scandal might have just raised the bar. TMZ is reporting that the former President posed for pics in Monaco with two babes. One might say, OK, that seems rather benign for Bill Clinton. However, not so fast … the two woman that Bill Clinton took the picture with were porn stars, AVN’s “Best New Starlets” Diane Kruger, Joshua Jackson.
It’s good to be a former President …
Clinton’s in a Monte Carlo casino right now for a special “Nights in Monaco” gala event — and several celebrities are in attendance … including Diane Kruger, Joshua Jackson … and a BUNCH OF PORN STARS.
The two porn stars on Bill’s arms are Tasha Reign (left) and Brooklyn Lee — AVN’s “Best New Starlet” in porn.
Brooklyn — who just posted the pic on her Twitter account — also just won the award for “Best Sex Scene” in “Mission Asspossible.” As for Tasha’s film credits … those include “Baby Got Boobs 8″ and “Farm Girls Gone Bad.”
The best line of all reporting on this story comes from the Daily Caller … “Almost fifteen years later, Bill still doesn’t know how to steer clear of a woman in a blue dress.” Classic!
Check out TMZ for the pic. GOOD GRIEF … what are the odds that there would be porn stars at an event that Bill Clinton was attending. Go figure.
Why am I thinking I should have just made this a caption content?
UPDATE I: TMZ interviews the two adult porn stars … He called us over. Nah, cuz Bill Clinton would never do anything like that, not one time, never. Porn star Tasha Reign went on to say,“We feel sympathetic for Bill and I hope this doesn’t hurt his reelection or whatever he’s trying to run for.” Um, his reelection chances? Obviously the two porn stars were at the Monaco fundraiser for their current event skills.
He kind of was looking over at us every once in awhile. And we’re huge, psycho fans of Bill. We just think he’s really cute,” porn star Brooklyn Lee said. “So we end up wandering by. And we were going to approach him to take a picture and his Secret Service sort of brushed us away. And as we were walking away, Bill actually had the Secret Service guy call us back, to come hang out.”
A leopard never changes its spots.
ABC News goes on to report that the porn stars stated that Clinton never asked them their profession, but then again Clinton knows all about plausible deniability and ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’.
The two were uncertain, but hopeful, that Clinton knew who they were–or at least their occupation.
“I kind of feel like he knows,” Lee said. “We hope he likes us and we hope he likes to watch our movies.” Reign concurred: “I have a feeling that everyone watches adult entertainment.”
Former President Bill Clinton called Barack Obama an “AMATEUR”. Well, if the shoe fits …
According to a new unauthorized biography of Barack Obama by Edward Klein, entitled “The Amateur,” Bill Clinton was reported to have said to his wife Hillary Clinton that Obama was an “amateur” and that she should quit her job as Secretary of State and run against him in the Democrat Presidential primaries. Also, Bill Clinton is reported to have stated that Obama “does not know how to be President” and is “incompetent”.
Bill Clinton explaining to Obama the A, B, C’s of being President …
Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,
“The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.
The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.
“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.”
Clinton further went on to say that Barack Obama was incompetent. In the end, does any one really disagree with Bill Clinton at this point? There are many Democrats who begged Hillary to run against Obama in the Democrat primaries. Had Hillary Clinton challenged Obama, she would have won. Hell, a felon managed to get 41% of the vote in West VA while being incarcerated.
“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.
Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush.
Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”
