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.


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.”

Ten Years Ago Today … September 11, 2001: Fox News Flashback: 9/11 as it Happened On-Air

Do you remember where you were 10 years ago today? The following VIDEO is a FOX News flashback of what was broadcast on-air during that fateful September morning.  It really is amazing to see what was broadcast live and some of the conclusions that were immediately come up with. Ten years later in a PC world we cannot make the assumption that an act of terrorism was not a result of radical Muslims even when we know its the case.

Hat Tip: The Blaze

President George W. Bush addresses the nation following the henious acts of terrorism against the United States.

“Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot shake the foundation of America.  These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.”

“Today our Nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature, And we responded with the best of America.”

Shameful NY Times LEFTIST Paul Krugman Attacks Fake Heroes GWB, Rudy & America On 9/11: “This Has Become An Occasion For Shame, The Nation Knows It”


What is wrong with some on the LEFT … are they really that hateful, do they really have that much contempt for GWB, Rudy Giuliani and America? Ask New York Times contributor and scumbag Paul Krugman. He penned an article in the Times on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 entitled … ‘The Years of Shame’.

This misguided pathetic individual says that “the memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.” Really?

Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?

Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?

Is Krugman that small an individual that he found it offensive that this morning at the 10th anniversary of 9/11, GWB actually received applause while Barack Obama did not? Is that how truly petty and vile Krugman is? A note to the NY Times and Krugman, GWB was the President who handled the 9/11 terror event, even though slimes like you refuse to acknowledged what 90% of America does … George W. Bush lead us through the difficult, dark days following 9/11 … yes, he was a Leader.

What is the sign of a true coward like Krugman? the liberal POS writes a hateful opinion piece and then does not allow any comments. As stated at Weasil Zippers, they have a tweet from the liberal Politico that notes Krugman’s cowardice.  What a brave soul you are Mr. Krugman. If you can’t take the heat, then get out of the industrious. Isn’t this typical of a hateful liberal who spews their nonsense and cannot take the backlash of truth.

Even those on the other side of the aisle, President Obama, VP Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton have praised former President George W. Bush for his handling of the terror attacks of 9/11 and the days and years that followed. Yesterday in Shanksville, PA VP Biden thanked and congratulated GWB for bringing our country together when it could have been torn apart.

Sadly, 10 years later, haters like Paul Krugman still have Bush Delusion Syndrome. He cannot stand that Bush received the proper congratulations for a job well done, in a time that was far different from today. GWB became a war President and protector of the USA overnight in a split second. As stated at Legal Insurrection, what a stark contrast that Krugman provides as he kicks and screams like a child who does not get his way that “they can’t stand the fact that the attacks on 9/11 proved that their world view was wrong, and every mention of 9/11 is like a thorn in their political sides.” Obviously Krugman is incapable of giving respect when it is due, his hate does not allow it to occur.

During this mornings 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in NYC as the names of the fallen were read, the bells tolled for a moment of silence six times his morning at the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, DC and a field in Shanksville, PA, to commemorate the moments when the four planes crashed and the two  Twin Towers fell 10 years ago. During this mornings ceremonies Presidents Bush and Obama were side by side; however, it was GWB who got the cheers and applause and rightfully so. Even those who never voted for W know he did a fantastic job in the days, weeks and years following 9/11.

The presidents both recited readings to the crowd. Obama read Psalm 46, which starts, “God is our refuge and strength,” while Bush read a letter by Abraham Lincoln, saying, “the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.”

Both men departed after the readings to go to other ceremonies in Pennsylvania and Washington.

George W. Bush, Laura Bush, Barack Obama & Michelle Obama personally shake hands and hug family members who lost loved ones on 9/11 at the waterfalls of the 9/11 Memorial

God Bless the victims, our fallen heroes and the families of 9/11.
