No One Cares to Listen to Barack Obama’s Lies Anymore … Nielson Ratings for Obama’s 2014 SOTU was Lowest in 20 Years
Hey Barack, there just not that into you anymore, America tunes out President Obama, his promises, his agenda and his lies.
It is safe to say that America has grown tired and weary of the Obama presidency. According to the Nielson rating for Obama’s SOTU Tuesday night, was the lowest in 20 years. According to Neilson, the State of the Union Address registered only a 20.7 household share rating. That is a far cry from Obama’s 2009 SOTU ‘Hope & Change’ address where he garnered a 32.5 share. As Doug Ross opines, I guess whiny, depressing liars aren’t good for ratings.” Obama fatigue has officially set in.
Even Biden Fell Asleep
On Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014 President Barack Obama delivered his second State of the Union address of his second term in office. The address was carried live from 9:00 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. on 13 networks and tape-delayed on Univision. The sum of the average audience for those networks was 33,299,172 viewers with a combined household rating of 20.7. The networks carrying the address live were CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, Azteca, Fox Business, Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Al Jazeera America, Galavision and Mun2.

Add another accomplishment to Barack Obama … Hardly ‘Hope and Change’ for the Youth.
The Youth Misery Index hits all-time high under Barack Obama. In 2009 when Obama took office, the YMI was at m 83.5; however, has skyrocketed to 98.6 in 2013. This represents an 18.1% increase since Obama took office. But Obama claims he is for the youth of America and the youth continue foolishly vote for him in large numbers. The index is calculated by adding youth unemployment and average college loan debt figures with each person’s share of the national debt. And before Obama and his minions blame Bush, when President George Bush left office in 2008, the index was 69.3.
A Youth Misery Index that measures young Americans’ woes has skyrocketed under President Barack Obama and hit an all-time high.
The index, released Wednesday, was calculated by adding youth unemployment and average college loan debt figures with each person’s share of the national debt. While it has steadily grown over the decades, under Obama the figure has shot up dramatically, from 83.5 in 2009 to 98.6 in 2013.
The index has increased by 18.1 percent since Obama took office, the highest increase under any president, making Obama the worst president for youth economic opportunity, according to the nonprofit that released the figure.
“Young people are suffering under this economy,” said Ashley Pratte, program officer for Young America’s Foundation, which developed the index and calculates it annually using federal statistics. “They’re still living in their parent’s basements, unable to find full-time jobs that pay them what they need in order to pay back their debt.”
Youth unemployment in 2013 was 16.3 percent, and student loan debt came in at a record-breaking average of $29,400 last year, the foundation points out; what’s more, each person’s share of the roughly $17 trillion dollar national debt stands at its highest level ever: $52,948.

Sorry, but what Obama has done to the youth of America should be considered a crime … Can he be charged with child abuse? How about Generational theft?

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates RIPS Barack Obama’s Leadership in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War” … Obama Douted, “Outright Convinced It” [the Surge Mission] Would Fail”
Commander in Chief?
Really, Barack Obama, the so-called Commander in Chief sent 30,000 of America’s bravest and treasured resources into harms way in the Afghanistan surge and did not even believe in the mission? Robert Gates writes in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War,” the president was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail.”
Why would some one commit troops to a mission that one did not believe in? This is enormously troubling. Was it merely political?
Barack Obama: Commander in Chief or President Photo-Op?
In a new memoir, former defense secretary Robert Gates unleashes harsh judgments about President Obama’s leadership and his commitment to the Afghanistan war, writing that by early 2010 he had concluded the president “doesn’t believe in his own strategy, and doesn’t consider the war to be his. For him, it’s all about getting out.”
Leveling one of the more serious charges that a defense secretary could make against a commander in chief sending forces into combat, Gates asserts that Obama had more than doubts about the course he had charted in Afghanistan. The president was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail,” Gates writes in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War.”
Obama, after months of contentious discussion with Gates and other top advisers, deployed 30,000 more troops in a final push to stabilize Afghanistan before a phased withdrawal beginning in mid-2011. “I never doubted Obama’s support for the troops, only his support for their mission,” Gates writes.

At a March 3, 2011, National Security Council meeting, Gates writes, the president opened with a “blast.” Obama criticized the military for “popping off in the press” and said he would push back hard against any delay in beginning the withdrawal.
According to Gates, Obama concluded, “?‘If I believe I am being gamed . . .’ and left the sentence hanging there with the clear implication the consequences would be dire.”
Gates continues: “I was pretty upset myself. I thought implicitly accusing” Petraeus, and perhaps Mullen and Gates himself, “of gaming him in front of thirty people in the Situation Room was inappropriate, not to mention highly disrespectful of Petraeus. As I sat there, I thought: the president doesn’t trust his commander, can’t stand [Afghanistan President Hamid] Karzai, doesn’t believe in his own strategy, and doesn’t consider the war to be his. For him, it’s all about getting out.”
Barack Obama … The Food Stamp & Disability President … The Total Number of people in US Receiving Federal Disability Benefits Hits a Record High in December, 2013
Not only is Barack Obama the Food Stamp president, he is the Disability president as well … So this is what “Hope & Change ” looks like.
More records for Barack Obama not to be proud of. CNS is reporting that the total number of Americans receiving federal disability benefits hits a record high of 10,988,269 in December, 2013. That was up from the previous record set in November of this year. Also, the average monthly benefit paid to a disabled worker also hit a record of $1,146.43 in December. What else are individuals going to do except go on food stamps and disability when the economy stinks. Thus, the real reason the the unemployment number is decreasing. It has nothing to do with people getting jobs, but everything to do with people no longer looking for employment.
The total number of people in the United States now receiving federal disability benefits hit a record 10,988,269 in December, up from the previous record of 10,982,920 set in November, according to newly released data from the Social Security Administration.
The average monthly benefit paid to a disabled worker also hit a record of $1,146.43 in December, up from a previous high of $1,130.34 in December of last year.
Spouses of disabled workers also got a record average monthly benefit of $308.13 in December, up from a previous high of $304.31 in August. Children of disabled workers also received a record average monthly benefit of $341.42 in December, up from a previous high of $337.13 in May.
As CNSNews.com reported earlier this month, the number of Americans getting disability benefits now exceeds the entire population of Greece, which is 10,772,967, according to the CIA World Factbook.
But wait, how can record number of Americans still be increasing on disability and food stamps … I thought the recession was over? Barack Obama is killing this country.

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.

Flip-Flopping, Liar in Chief: President Obama Suddenly Acknowledges He Knew and Lived With His Kenyan Uncle Omar in the 1980′s
Barack Obama is incapable of telling the truth, about anything … it really is true, if his lips are moving, one can suspect that the truth is no where to be found.
the Manchurian candidate , Yuri Barack Obama had said that he never met Onyango Obama, suddenly Obama now admits that he lived with Uncle “Omar” for a period of time in the 1980′s while preparing to attend Harvard University. HUH? However, in 2012 the Boston Globe reported after Omar Obama’s arrest for DUI, that the White House said he had ”never met his famous nephew.” Barack Obama was heard to have said, oh that Uncle Omar, I thought you had said, Uncle Imir.
Does it bother anyone else that we have a complete and total compulsive liar as president?
So what we basically have here is that Barack Obama has admitted he lied that he stayed with his Kenyan born uncle who was in the United States illegally.
That’s a first. He is a liar without equal, but it’s a first that he admit it. Obama admits he lied — he did live with Uncle Onyango Obama. I wonder why Obama would own up to it. You know there is some other motive at work here.
“White House Misled Press: Obama Knew and Lived With Uncle Who Was Here Illegally” By Steven Nelson, US News, December 5, 2013
The PJ Tatler pretty much says it all in the following comment with respect to Barack Obama and the fact that “We the People” have had this disgrace inflicted upon us, “It would be nice to have lived in a world in which the media vetted previously obscure presidential candidates before they were elected. If such a world existed, I would very much like to live in it.”
Obama says he wants to be an ESPN Sports Center host after he retires as president. Scared Monkeys says, why wait …
HOPE & CHANGE … Well now we know what Barack Obama’s master plan was in getting the job as president of the United States. It was a resume builder for his dream job, to be a host at ESPN’s Sports Center. As stated at Hot Air, now it makes sense why Obama has devoted so much time and effort to March Madness brackets, the Super Bowl, and the World Series for the last five years “while casually mucking up giant parts of his day job” as president. I say, why wait? Please just quit now and go to ESPN, please! Although I will also sadly say that he is probably more qualified to be an ESPN host than he is president. I guess we now know why he takes the job so seriously.
Just don’t let him be the new Jimmy “the Greek” picking sports games, as Barack the Socialist is not very good at picking “winners and losers”. I can see Lee Corso on Game Day doing a perpetual loop of “NOT SO FAST!”
From The Hollywood Reporter:
If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.
At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.
Weasel Zippers some what agrees, “Well, he is an expert at reading off a teleprompter”.
However, I would remind all as I did intern for a short period of time at a news outlet that everything is not provided to hosts on a teleprompter. Many times a producer is talking in your ear and you have to ad-lib. I would suggest that Barack Obama nt use the video below as his audition tape.
“Young Invincibles” Turn on Obama in a Major Way … Harvard Poll: Millennial’s 18-29 Year-Olds Says 54% Disapprove of Obama’s Job Performance, 61% Disapproved of his Handling of Healthcare & 57% Disapproved of the Affordable Care Act
Millennial Buyers Remorse …
OUCH … 18 to 29 year-olds are in revolt against President Barack Obama, how he has handled his job, healthcare and Obamacare itself!!!
Hey Mr. President … the millennial’s just are not that into you anymore now that they know they truth and they have been lied to and used. Couple the healthcare lies with the NSA spying scandals and the youth that so supported Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections now learn that there is nothing “Hopey-Changey” about Obama. He is the same old, same old lying politicians. Maybe even worse. According to a new Harvard IOP poll, among the 18- 29- year olds currently without health insurance, less than 1/3 say they’re likely to enroll in the exchange. 13% say they will definitely enroll, 16% say they will probably enroll; 41% say they are 50-50 at the moment.
- 54% Disapprove of Obama’s Job Performance
- 61% Disapproved of his Handling of Healthcare
- 57% Disapproved of the Affordable Care Act
- 44% said they think the quality of their health care will get worse
The Millennials actually now look more like the rest of the voter electorate.
The trend is daunting for the White House but not necessarily surprising,” said Pew Research Center Director Michael Dimock.
“Younger folks are part of Obama’s base … but the rollout confirmed concerns that were already in their minds.”
A poll released Wednesday by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics found that more than half of 18- to 29-year-olds disapprove of ObamaCare and believe it will raise their healthcare costs.
Even more troubling for the administration is that less than one-third of uninsured young people said they plan to enroll in coverage.
Without a large number of young, healthy people in the insurance exchanges, it could create a “death spiral” of high premiums that could threaten the long-term viability of the marketplaces.
The White House appears to recognize the growing threat, and is making outreach to younger people a major focus of its ObamaCare relaunch.
The president began the effort on Wednesday with a youth summit at the White House where he urged audience members to spread the word about the new healthcare exchanges — and think hard about their own health risks.
Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) Says of the Obama Administration: “I Think the Current Administration Has Taken Lying to a New Level”
Senator John Cornyn is finally on board with Scared Monkeys … Barack Obama is The
Lion Lying King …
Last night on the Kelly File’s, Megyn Kelly discussed with Obama sycophant and National Press Secretary for Obama’s 2012 campaign Ben Labolt about Sen. Cornyn’s comment that, “I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level.” In typical Obama/Saul Alinsky fashion, Labolt attacked Republicans for the failures of Obamacare. Pathetic. Then he went on to lie and say that Obama apologized for lying to Americans, that they could keep their healthcare plan if they liked it, Period! Of course Kelly was quick to correct the Obama mouth peice to say that what the president said was that he was sorry that people found themselves in the situation they are in because of something he said. And of course there was the typical “blame Bush” attack. What a pathetic bunch of people who just are incapable of telling the truth and owning up to it when they are caught red handed.
Come on America, I think it was pretty obvious that Barack Obama, Democrats and their minions mislead and lied to the American people.
Sen. John Cornyn says the White House has been lying about the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, and accused them of a cover-up.
“I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level,” Cornyn said during a Google hangout on Monday in response to a question about Benghazi.
Cornyn praised the work of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, who has tried to subpoena information and witnesses from the State Department. The senator said Congress should use “all the tools available … to hold people accountable.”
“It’s harder when the administration decides to cover this up and mislead and to change the subject, which they seem very good at doing, but … I assure you we’re not going to let this one go,” Cornyn said. “To me that’s the one thing that I find most aggravating about what’s happening in Washington these days and particularly about this administration, which is a lack of accountability and the willingness to mislead people or provide them just demonstrably false information and expect to be able to move on.”
Harry Reid, the Senate Democrats, Barack Obama & Joe Biden’s Nuclear Hypocrisy … Senate Goes Nuclear with Democrat Party Vote 52-48
Partisan Democrats end 225 years of precedent … Democrats just striped the protection of “We the People” who are in the minority.
Democrats were against it, before they were for it …
Yesterday, Democrats broke 225 years of precedent, when the U.S. Senate voted along Democrat partisan line 52-48 to invoke the so-called nuclear option allowing confirmation for most presidential nominees by simple majority. Some Democrats split with the party and voted against the change; however, the 52 votes were all of the Democrat party. Hmm, isn’t how we got Obamacare? What this does is the Senate voted to severely limit the use of the filibuster, one of the few tools a minority party has in our representative democracy. This was nothing more than a “Naked Power Grab.” As Dana Milbank writes, Congress wasn’t broken before, it certainly is now. What Reid (D-NV) and his fellow Democrats effectively did was take the chamber of Congress that still functioned at a modest level and turn it into a clone of the other chamber, which functions not at all. They turned the Senate into the House.
The Senate vote Thursday to lower the barriers for presidential nominations should make it easier for President Obama to accomplish key second-term priorities, including tougher measures on climate change and financial regulation, that have faced intense opposition from Republicans in Congress.
The move to allow a simple majority vote on most executive and judicial nominees also sets the stage for Obama to appoint new top officials to the Federal Reserve and other key agencies — probably leading to more aggressive action to stimulate the economy and housing market. And it frees Obama to make changes to his Cabinet without the threat of long delays in the Senate before the confirmation of nominees.
Laura Ingraham discuses the “nuclear option” on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’.
Remember when Senate Barack Obama said he was against the “Nuclear” option in 2005? So why the sudden change of heart Obama? Maybe because as we saw with Obamacare, you are just a lair. Hmm, did Obama also run in 2012 on the notion that “if you like the rules of the US Senate you can keep them’? What a frigging hypocrite.
HMM, WHAT CHANGED. REPUBLICANS THREATENED IT, BUT NEVER WENT THRU WITH IT. OBAMA HAS TRULY DESTROYED THIS COUNTRY AND ITS GOVERNMENT.
The Gateway Pundit has more on Harry Reid and Dems Overturn 1806 Senate Rule & Pass ‘Nuclear Option.’
Senator Barack Obama in 2005 against the nuclear option
Senator Joe Biden in 2005 against the nuclear option. Take a good listen at what Biden says when he was in the minority.
Obama says this is not what the Founders intended … compilation of numerous Democrats who were against it, before they were for it.
Joe Biden calls it a “naked” power grab and says, “you will not be in the majority forever”.
