WAPO-ABC News Poll: Barack Obama Job Approval Rating 55% Disapprove, 43% Approve … He’s Fallen & He Can’t Get Up!!!
2013 is not over yet and neither are President Barack Obama’s job approval numbers falling … He’s Fallen and he can’t Get Up!!!
The Emperor has no close, and no approval ratings either. The most recent WAPO-ABC News poll is out and it is not good news for Barack Obama or Democrats. Across the board on key issues that are important to Americans like the economy, handling the countries problems and trustworthiness, Obama has either lost significant ground or the lead all-together to the GOP. Obama’s polling numbers are in disarray because the American people, who once gave him the benefit of the doubt, now see that he cannot be trusted. Obama has wasted all this time and lied about Obamacare, rather than focusing on the economy and jobs as he had promised as well.
Check out the comparisons from just a year ago … Had America known now what they should have been made aware of in 2012, Barack Obama would have lost the 2012 presidential election in a landslide. Obama can thank his lucky stars that the US Constitution does not provide for recall elections for the president.

President Obama is ending his fifth year in office matching the worst public approval ratings of his presidency, with record numbers of Americans saying they disapprove of his job performance and his once-hefty advantages over Republicans in Congress eroded in many areas, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
His position is all the more striking when compared with his standing a year ago, as he was preparing for his second inauguration after a solid reelection victory. That high note proved fleeting as the president faced a series of setbacks, culminating in the botched rollout of his Affordable Care Act two months ago.
Obama’s standing is of particular concern to congressional Democrats as they look to next year’s midterm elections. Parties that control the White House suffer — sometimes significantly — in midterm campaigns when the president’s approval rating is below 50 percent.
On several key measures, Obama has lost significant ground to his Republican opponents in Congress. On the question of who is seen as better able to handle the country’s main problems, Obama and Republicans are tied at 41 percent. A year ago, the president’s advantage was 15 points and at this stage in 2010 it was still five points.
Obama also has lost the lead he enjoyed on who could better deal with the economy. Today Republicans are at 45 percent to Obama’s 41 percent.
Any lead that Barack Obama and Democrats had over the GOP have all but eroded in 2013.

Quinnipiac Poll: Obama’s Job Approval Rating Falls to Low of 38% … Obamacare at 34%, Handling the Economy 37%, Not Honest & Trustworthy 52%
HOW LOW CAN THE
LION LYING KING GO …
According to the UK Daily Mail, a recent Quinnipiac poll has President Barack Obama’s job approval rating continuing to fall, down to 38% while a whopping 57% disapprove. Barack Obama’s poll numbers are reaching epically bad levels as there is no end in sight for Americans finding out further bad news regarding Obamacare and the 2000 unread pages in how it affects people’s lives. Americans continue to find out and realize that they were lied to and the impacts are directly being felt. Obama is seeing lows across the board in handling the economy, healthcare, foreign policy and is seeing support from key groups like Latinos and Millennials completely fall apart. But wait, there is one thing that Obama gets high marks in, 52% polled say that Obama is not honest or trustworthy.
Once a president loses the trust of the people, they are finished, #You Lie!
Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush’s following Hurricane Katrina.
The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 per cent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 per cent saying they disapprove.
The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 per cent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 per cent margin.
Worse for Obama’s fast-approaching legacy-building years, the public believes he is not ‘honest and trustworthy,’ by a 52–44 per cent score. A smaller majority, 51 per cent, said he lacks ‘strong leadership qualities.’
Today, Obama gets negative scores of 6 – 92 percent among Republicans, 30 – 62 percent among independent voters, 31 – 64 percent among men, 44 – 49 percent among women and 29 – 65 among white voters. Approval is 76 – 18 percent among Democrats and 85 – 9 percent among black voters.
- 37 – 59 percent on his handling of the economy
- 34 – 62 percent on health care
- 42 – 49 percent on foreign policy
- 40 – 48 percent approval for his handling of the situation in Iran
- 49 percent young voters now saying they disapprove of his job performance
- 43 percent of Hispanics now oppose Obama
AP-GfK Poll: What a Sad Commentary of Today’s Society, Two-Thirds Say People Can’t Be Trusted … #You Lie
When did “Trust” become a 4-letter word … Who will be the role models?
As the AP article says, ‘In God we trust, maybe, but not each other’. How sad. What a sad commentary on where our society has gone where Americans don’t trust each other anymore. It is one thing to have blind trust and rose colored glasses, it is quite another to have trust be remain skeptical and always question. However, the trust trends, or lack thereof have rose dramatically in the last 40 years. I think it is no surprise that it would be based on the Watergate years. But what has changed in that respect where people would think at the very least that their President could set the image of trust. But that is certainly not the case today as Americans found out that Barack Obama was lying when he told “We the People” that if you liked your healthcare plan, you could keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! That coupled with all to many scandals like IRS-gate, AP-gate, Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, NSA-gate, Rosen-gate, etc. How could people really trust when they see all of these lies going on around them?
But it is larger than just politics. We need something to reverse the trend so that individuals want to trust others.
These days, only one-third of Americans say most people can be trusted. Half felt that way in 1972, when the General Social Survey first asked the question.
Forty years later, a record high of nearly two-thirds say “you can’t be too careful” in dealing with people.
An AP-GfK poll conducted last month found that Americans are suspicious of each other in everyday encounters. Less than one-third expressed a lot of trust in clerks who swipe their credit cards, drivers on the road, or people they meet when traveling.
“I’m leery of everybody,” said Bart Murawski, 27, of Albany, N.Y. “Caution is always a factor.”
Does it matter that Americans are suspicious of one another? Yes, say worried political and social scientists.
What’s known as “social trust” brings good things.
A society where it’s easier to compromise or make a deal. Where people are willing to work with those who are different from them for the common good. Where trust appears to promote economic growth.
Trust has to be earned, it does not grow on trees. And once trust is broken, it takes years, sometimes forever to repair. So, is it too late to reverse this trend? Some say that it is. Is it possible to go back to a simpler time and instill not only trust, but values in people to act accordingly? The question really is, who will step up and play the adult to make “TRUST” a valued principle?
In fact, some studies suggest it’s too late for most Americans alive today to become more trusting. That research says the basis for a person’s lifetime trust levels is set by his or her mid-twenties and unlikely to change, other than in some unifying crucible such as a world war.
People do get a little more trusting as they age. But beginning with the baby boomers, each generation has started off adulthood less trusting than those who came before them.
The best hope for creating a more trusting nation may be figuring out how to inspire today’s youth, perhaps united by their high-tech gadgets, to trust the way previous generations did in simpler times.
There are still trusters around to set an example.

Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood Mock Obamacare at 2013 CMA’s … “Obamacare by Morning” … “Over 6 People Served”
Southern country cooking … Obamacare, that’s niiice.
Last night in Nashville, Tennessee, country music giants and co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood started the 2013 CMA Awards by mocking Obamacare and the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov. OMG, too funny! But what else would one make fun of than what is the biggest joke going in pop culture today? Paisley and Underwood said nothing that was false. However, the Obama White House was probably not laughing as millions watched as the CMA’s shredded the disastrous rollout of Obamacare with newly crowned entertainer of the year George Strait’s song “Amarillo by Morning” renamed … “Obamacare by Morning, Over 6 People Served!!!”
“ObamaCare, what’s that?” Paisley asked Underwood.
“Oh, it’s great!” Underwood quipped. “I started signing up last Thursday and I’m almost done!” The “Blown Away” singer proceeded to help her co-host sign up for ObamaCare and “join the six other people” who have reportedly signed up successfully for the healthcare service.
The Blaze has the unhinged reaction of the LEFT and the Obama sycophants who one, cannot laugh at something that is obviously funny and two, go mental at anything that dare make fun of their Obamamessiah.The skit was funny enough, but to see and read the LEFT’s unhinged reaction, that is just priceless.
LIAR in CHIEF … Now Barack Obama Says About Obamacare, “What We Said Was You Can Keep It If It Hasn’t Changed Since The Law Passed” … #YOU LIE
LION LYING KING: AMERICA, HE THINKS YOU ARE THAT STUPID … OBAMA DOUBLES DOWN ON HIS OBAMACARE LIES …
Unbelievable, now President Barack Obama is now saying regarding Obamacare and the fact that millions of people are losing their insurance is that he told Americans that ““what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” Ah, no you did not. Obama is now compounding a lie with another lie, but what else should we expect from a Saul Alinsky disciple but doubling down? Alynsky wrore, “In war, the end justifies almost any means.” For individuals like Alinsky and Obama, politics is war and Obama’s lies were 100% intentional when he and Democrats knew that millions of Americans would lose their insurance, yet he said the opposite. Now that the $hit has hit the fan and the American people are mad as hell that they were lied to. Had Obama actually told the truth and the media would have followed up with just how many would lose insurance, there is no way Obama wins the 2012 presidential election.
What else does Obama have, except to continue the lie …
Yea, that’s what I said, “You Can Keep It If It Hasn’t Changed Since The Law Passed” … that’s the ticket
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed. So we wrote into the Affordable Care Act, you’re grandfathered in on that plan. But if the insurance company changes it, then what we’re saying is they’ve got to change it to a higher standard. They’ve got to make it better, they’ve got to improve the quality of the plan they are selling. That’s part of the promise that we made too. That’s why we went out of our way to make sure that the law allowed for grandfathering.
If we had allowed these old plans to be downgraded, or sold to new enrollees once the law had already passed, then we would have broken an even more important promise — making sure Americans gain access to health care that doesn’t leave them one illness away from financial ruin. The bottom line is that we are making the insurance market better for everybody and that’s the right thing to do. (Organizing for Action campaign event, November 4, 2013)
#YOU LIE!!! No Mr. President, what you said was … “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor PERIOD! If you like your health care plan you will be able to keep your healthcare plan PERIOD! No one will take it away, no matter what!” It was repeated at least 29 times, although it seems more likes hundreds of times. All anyone needs to do is watch the VIDEO below to see exactly what Obama said. Try and find a video that says what Obama is claiming above in his spin.
And many, many more tweets from Twitchy on Obama’s audacity that he and his minions think you are just that ignorant.
And from NewsBusters comes the following catch of Obama in another lie about keeping insurance.
Oh, and one more thing. As Megyn Kelly noted a week ago, Obama, responding to a question from Arizona Senator John Kyl in February 2010, promised that you could even keep your “Acme Insurance” plan, with no qualifications:
Actually, any insurance that you currently have would be grandfathered in so you could keep it. So you could decide not to get in the exchange the better plan. I could keep my Acme Insurance, just a high deductible catastrophic plan. I would not be required to get the better one.
Gallup Poll: Barack Obama Job Approval Sinking Like a Rock Following Obamacare Lies … 40% Approve – 53% Disapprove
It is all starting to crash down on Obama as his lies to the American people are finally catching up to him.
The most recent 3 day rolling average of Gallup polling for Obama’s job approval now at 40% approve, 53% disapprove. Which is pretty much in line with RCP’s average polling of Obama’s job approval as well. All of the scandals like NSA, Benghazi and the IRS are starting to wear thin with Americans. However, Obama’s Waterloo seems to be in being caught knowing lying to the American people on one of the cornerstones of Obamacare in that “if you liked your healthcare coverage, you can keep it, PERIOD!”
The even worse part about this is that there is nothing to break the news cycle for Obama. He promised that the disastrous Obamacare website Healthcare.gov will be fixed by the end of November. However, most think that may be a pipe dream. But even if that is the case, once individuals log on they will face the sticker shock of what they thought was falsely promised as “affordable” healthcare.
Earlier today on ‘Meet the Press,’ former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney commented on Obama’s credibility, “I think, that has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case.”
71% of Voters Believe It’s Somewhat Likely President Obama or Senior Officials in his Administration Were Aware Before Obamacare was Passed that Health Insurance Costs Would Go Up for Some Americans.” … #You Lie
71% of Americans believe they were lied to about Obamacare …
From the Washington Examiner via a recent Rasmussen poll, that 71% of Americans believe that President Obama and his health care team knew well in advance that insurance costs would surge despite his promises they wouldn’t. Also, 40% want HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to retire or be fired. So not only did they know you could not keep your insurance if you liked it, they also knew the costs would increase as well.
Rasmussen Reports found that 71 percent of voters believe “it’s at least somewhat likely that President Obama or senior officials in his administration were aware long before the law began being implemented that health insurance costs would go up for some Americans.”
Worse for the president: Only 18 percent want Obamacare to move on unchanged, but 43 percent want it repealed and the process started over and another 35 percent want Congress to fix it in a piecemeal fashion.
However, I have to sadly agree with the comments by Debra Heine at Brietbart.com with regards to the apathy and “oh well” mentality that is going on in the United States. We are a government of, by and for the people and ‘We the People” seem more engaged to the celebrity of the day and reality TV.
When the vast majority of American voters can agree they were lied to in order pass a controversial bill on a party line vote that amounts to a takeover of nearly 1/6 of the economy, and a large percent of them say, yeah, so what? – Our country is in deep trouble. According to Rasmussen, 48% of Likely U.S. Voters still approve of Obama’s job performance. Unbelievable.
America, would you stand the hell up for yourselves and take your liberty, freedoms and country back! Pretend like you actually care. The Founding Fathers are shaking their collective heads at the apathy.
In other polling, Rasmussen finds that 51% believe that the “individual” mandate should be delayed, while 34% say no.
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer Admits Democrats Knew Americans Would Not be Able to Keep Their Current Health Care Plans Under Obamacare … #You Lie
HEY AMERICA … IT WASN’T JUST OBAMA WHO LIED TO YOU, IT WAS THE ENTIRE DEMOCRAT PARTY THAT MISLEAD YOU ON OBAMACARE!!!
From the National Review Online, House Demorat Whip Steny the Hoyer (MD 5th District) admitted that Democrats knew that Americans would lose their current healthcare plans under Obamacare even as President Barack Obama, Democrats and their minions repeatedly gave a quite different message to “We the People”. It was Barack Obama who continually said over and over and over … If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period! Basically, the Democrat party that passed Obamacare on a purely partisan vote and rammed Obamacare down the throats of Americans knew that the tag line and talking points were a complete and total lie. Hot Air has much, much more on the liars.
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!”
“No one will take it away, no matter what.”
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer conceded to reporters today that Democrats knew people would not be able to keep their current health care plans under Obamacare and expressed qualified contrition for President Obama’s repeated vows to the contrary.
“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.
Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”
Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive. Democrats are in a tough place as they not only must attempt to defend Obama’s promises of being able to keep your insurance under Obamacare, but know being questioned as to whether they knew that Americans would lose their coverage, and when. Democrats are going to have a hell of a time getting out of this one as they have been caught in a lie. Either you admit you lied or you say, I never read the bill I signed that forced this upon the American people, Democrats and Republicans alike. Although Democrat Majority Leader Harry the Reid took a different tack. The true believer Reid said President Obama “didn’t say anything that was wrong. That’s true.” Really?
Johnson’s bill, which will be introduced on Wednesday, could put Democrats in a tough spot. Asked Tuesday to explain the news that millions of Americans were losing their insurance policies, contrary to the president’s promise, Senate Democrats responded with a mixture of denials, evasions, and historical revisionism. Nearly all refused to say if they opposed Johnson’s bill.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire expressed shock that so many Americans are losing their current plans. “We knew that they would need to sign up again, but obviously I don’t think anybody thought people would be kicked off their health insurance plan,” said Shaheen, who refused to say if Americans should be able to keep the plans they had in 2013.
“He didn’t say anything wrong,” Senate majority leader Harry Reid said when asked about Obama’s promise. “That was true.”
According to Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Democrats had only promised that Americans could keep their insurance if it was “good insurance.”
“We said when we passed that, ‘If you had insurance that was good insurance that you wanted to keep it, you could keep it,’” Landrieu said.
She declined to say if she would support a measure to let Americans keep the plans they had in 2013. “I haven’t looked at it specifically,” Landrieu said.
“We can look at that,” said Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. “That’s something we can look at.”
It would appear that Democrats are going to try and pull a Bill Clinton and contort their words to create a new talking point. With Slick Willy, “It all depends on what is, is.” As stated at the Lonely Conservative, the new Democrat talking point will be “You Can Keep Your Plan If It’s ‘Good’ Insurance”. Hmm, how do you think that would have played out in the passage of the bill and the run up to the 2012 presidential election? The comment would have been overshadowed by the follow up question of what is considered a “good” insurance and who decides that? With the millions that have lost their insurance and the millions more that will do so, how do you think that would have changed the election results? I guess we now know why Obama and Democrats lied, eh?
Hold the phone, is it possible that this scandal of lying to the American people is so bad that even the MSM has to catch up and report on the story? It appears that way. The MSM in a face-saving effort to appear to be “fair & balanced” is going after Obama and his administration on this one. Of course they were carrying the water for Obama during his reelection, now they feel the need to have some semblance of credibility.
Democrat Kirsten Powers Learns that the Affordable Healthcare Act is not so Affordable … “Not quite the way they sold it” as Her Insurance Premium Skyrocket Because of Obamacare
Young Liberals are realizing that they were fed a bill of goods … Obama has lost all credibility … #YOU LIE!
Why is Obamacare and Barack Obama in such trouble? Because liberals like Kirsten Powers, a columnist for the Daily Beast, who carried the water for Obama are finding out that they were lied to as well and that pretty much all of the promises made of the Affordable Health Care Act were fabrications. From The Kelly Files via Twitchy, Kirsten Powers, who has been an advocate of Obamacare and has shilled for it for years has come to the reality up close and person that not only can she not keep her insurance if she liked it, but it is also not so affordable.
According to Powers, she received a letter that her insurance was canceled. She had a plan that had a $2500 deductible and $160 premium. Now it’s a $2500 deductible and a $300 premium. As Powers told Megyn Kelly of her own experiences of Obamacare … this is “Not quite the way they [Barack Obama] sold it.”
Of course Kirsten Powers is just one of millions who is learning the hard way that they were deceived by Barack Obama and the Obama administration that if they liked their insurance, they could keep it.
CBS News has learned more than two million Americans have been told they cannot renew their current insurance policies — more than triple the number of people said to be buying insurance under the new Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare.
There have been estimates about hundreds of thousands of people losing coverage, CBS News’ Jan Crawford reported on “CBS This Morning.” CBS News has reached out to insurance companies across the country to determine some of the real numbers — and this is just the tip of the iceberg, Crawford said. The people who are opening the letters are shocked to learn they can’t keep their insurance policies despite President Obama’s assurances to the contrary.
The White House is on the defensive trying to explain it, after Mr. Obama repeatedly said, “If you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it.”
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “What the president said and what everybody said all along is that there are going to be changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act to create minimum standards of coverage.”
It appears that Sebelius has learned from the master Barack Obama in blaming everyone else for everything …
UNREAL, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is blaming Republicans for the lack of testing and the Obamacare website Healthcare.gov rollout failures. These people will take blame for nothing, including their own incompetence. It is just remarkable that these individuals in the federal government will not take responsibility for what they were the project managers and CEO over. When the contractors were questioned by the House this last week in committee hearings, many of them pointed blame back at the government. Obama, Sebelius and the cronies that they gave the “no bid” contract to had three years to develop and implement the website. If Sebelius wants to blame anyone for the fact that she had a hard deadline of October 1 to go live, she has no one to blame but President Barack Obama. He delayed certain parts of Obama like the employee mandate, he well could have delayed the implementation date as well.
Everyone say along with us, GOP is to blame, GOP is to blame, GOP is to blame

In an ideal world there would have been a lot more testing. We did not have the luxury of that with a law that said it’s go time on October 1st and frankly a political atmosphere where the majority party at least in the House was determined to stop this any way they possibly could including shutting down the United States government. So it was not an ideal atmosphere.
