Reversal of Fortune … Left-Wing Former Weather Underground Terrorist Bill Ayers Gives Obama a Failing Grade and Says Should “Absolutely” Be Tried For “War Crimes”
Add domestic terrorist Bill Ayers to the long list to those who have ‘Lost that Lovin’ Feeling’ for Obama.
From Real Clear Politics (VIDEO)… Left-wing domestic terrorist and Obama supporter says that President Barack Hussein Obama should “absolutely” be tried for “war crimes.” Go figure. In an interview with RCP’s Tom Bevan and Charlie Stone during ‘Morning Commute,’ Ayers noted how Obama is no better than former Presidents Johnson and Nixon. Ayers gave Obama a failing grade and stated he had blood on his hands. Really, just how bad is it for Obama when his buddy Bill Ayers gives the Obamamessiah a failing grade? Hmm, more individuals making the Obama, Nixon comparison. This is beginning to become a trend.
The Washington Times reports the following:
Former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers says that while he still likes President Obama personally, he deserves “a failing grade” on the presidency and should be tried for war crimes.
“With all due respect, you hold Johnson with disdain. You hold Bush and Nixon with disdain. But isn’t Barack Obama — as the sole authority for drone use — engaged in terrorist activity?” RealClearPolitics’ Charlie Stone asked Mr. Ayers on today’s broadcast of “Morning Commute.”
“Absolutely, absolutely,” Mr. Ayers replied.
“Do you think Barack Obama should be put on trial for war crimes?”
“Absolutely,” the activist answered. “Every president in this century should be on trial for war crimes. Every one of them goes into an office dripping with blood, and adds to it. And yes I think that these are war crimes, that these are acts of terror.”
OK, who sees the obvious hypocrisy here? Obama is guilty of many things, war crimes, not so sure. But that can be debatable. However, who thinks that Ayers should be pointing the “bloody” finger at anyone? Ayers actually having the audacity to claim anyone has blood on their hands. Really, does Ayers have amnesia? As we are reminded by the PJ Tatler, isn’t Ayers a former domestic terrorist who bombed the Pentagon? A bombing that he has no regrets for.
Ok, the every president has blood on his hands remark is debatable, but it’s a bit amusing that an unrepentant radical views Obama as a war criminal. After all, it’s coming from a guy who set off a bomb in the Pentagon. Yet, he’s an authority on what’s ethical and moral within the realm of international relations?
EXIT QUESTION … According to the LEFT, does this make Bill Ayers a racists?
Don’t look now but
Nixon’s Obama’s approval ratings are tanking amid scandals.
According to a recent CNN poll. President Barack Obama’s approval rating has sunk to 45% while 54% disapprove of his handling of his job. It is his lowest rating in a year and a half. So why the free-fall? Can you say scandals and the fact that the American people are being to not only lose trust in government, but specifically lose trust in Obama. The scandals are starting to catch up with Obama and how could they not? With Benghazi, the IRS, AP, James Rosen, NSA, the State Department and lest we forget Fast and Furious, it is simply amazing his approval rating is at 45%. Obama also go low marks on handling the economy and the federal budget. Also, as reported at the Politico, for the first time in his presidency, the poll also found less than half of respondents believed Obama was honest. In all, the poll showed Obama to be a complete failure.
Full poll can be read HERE (pdf).
The president’s approval rating stands at 45%, down from 53% in mid-May. And 54% say they disapprove of how Obama’s handling his job, up nine points from last month. It’s the first time in CNN polling since November 2011 that a majority of Americans have had a negative view of the president.
“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
The president also dropped 10 points among independent voters, from 47% last month to 37% now, with Obama’s disapproval among independents jumping 12 points to 61%.
Snapshot of poll from Business Insiders:
•General job approval is down from 53% in May to 45% now.
•Approval on the economy is down 2 points, to 42%.
•On foreign affairs, Obama has fallen 5 points to 44%.
•On illegal immigration, Obama’s disapproval is up to 56%.
•49% of respondents say Obama is honest/trustworthy, a big drop from 58% in the last reading.
•Among those aged under 30, Obama has seen a 17% (!) drop in approval.
More from The Politico, Obama losing support from Independents and the youth vote.
The drop in support for Obama was especially steep among young voters and independents. With voters ages 18 to 29, Obama’s approval numbers dropped 17 points, according to CNN’s polling director. Among voters ages 18-34, 48 percent approved of the job Obama is doing and 50 percent disapproved.
Independents’ approval of the president dropped 10 points, to 37 percent, and disapproval was up 12 points, to 61 percent.
This should be all Republicans need to know to never, and I mean NEVER nominate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as GOP presidential candidate.
WHAT A SHOCK. As reported by CNS News, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker among Democratic respondents. Who could have seen that one coming? You mean RINO Chris Christie, Barack Obama’s best friend and the individual who helped Obama win reelection with his over the top embrace of Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy? Why wouldn’t Democrats see Christie as the most favorable Republican seeing that he allowed himself to be the useful pawn and photo-op for Obama? As stated at Michelle Malkin, Hillary Clinton’s greatest threat for the Democrat nomination for president might just be Chris Christie.
Obama – Christie Bromance … They are not a political odd couple, they are the same person … Obama and Christie are all about Obama and Christie
According to a newly released Gallup poll, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the least-favored–among Democratic respondents. The poll sought to measure the favorable/unfavorable sentiments toward five Republicans Gallup believes may run for president in 2016. Conducted June 1-4. the survey asked: [P]lease say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of these people–or if you have never heard of them.” It then listed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
Chris Christie most beloved Republican by Democrats, what is John McCain going to say?
Americans No Longer Trust Their Government … 57% Fear Government Will Use NSA Data to Harass Political Opponents
Americans have lost trust in their government and believe it is a threat to their individual rights. Our rights are endowed by Our Creator, not government. Don’t ever forget what our Founding Fathers states … “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government …”
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. (Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776)
What ever happened to the dream of Our Founding Fathers of a government of, by and for the People? It would appear that those days are gone as Americans now fear the very government that is supposed to be for “We the People”. The continual scandals of the Obama administration bring into play just how big, how out of control and how vindictive the federal government has become. In a recent Rasmussen poll, 57% of Americans fear the Government will use NSA data to harass political opponents. Why would they feel like that, it’s not as though the IRS willfully and purposely targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations, while they have liberal and progressive groups a free pass. Oh that’s right, they did. Forget the fact that it is most likely Unconstitutional to collect data on all Americans to use at a later date, whether it is for national security or not. The problem is that when there is a situation that can present itself for abuse, it will be compromised. We need to look no further than the IRS scandal that obviously aided Barack Obama in winning reelection by harassing and preventing his opponents from organizing. And despite the fact that Barack Obama has told us that they do not listen in on phone calls, according to another Rasmussen poll, 68% think it is likely that the government is listening to their conversations.
Making matters worse that Americans have lost trust in their government is that 56% of Americans believe that their Government is a threat to their individuals rights. How is this possible that “WE THE PEOPLE” have allowed a government to go rogue? Another 60% say it is likely other agencies targeted Conservatives as well. We have a government that is “Too Big” to succeed. What are the chances that the IRS also perpetrated their illegal acts against conservatives to help Obama and ensure that Obamacare would not be repealed along with the 16,000 news IRS jobs that go along with Obamacare? Hmm, think there is a slight conflict of interest there from the organization that was to implement and enforce Obamacare?
The United States was founded on a belief that governments are created to protect certain unalienable rights. Today, however, more voters than ever view the federal government as a threat to those rights.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters now consider the federal government a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights. That’s up 10 points from 46% in December.
Talk About Hipocrisy … In 2006 Joe Biden Said, Don’t Trust a Spying President or Vice President, What Say You Now Joe? According to Gallup, Majority of Americans Don’t Either
Americans appear to be very troubled by the government spying on them. Hmm, so was Joe Biden when he was in the US Senate. In 2006, then Senator Joe Biden said you can’t trust a spying president.
“If I know every single phone call you made I’m able to determine every single person you talk to. I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. The real question here is what do they do with this information they collect that does not have anything to do with Al-Qaeda? And we’re going to trust the president and the vice president of the United States that they’re doing the right thing. Don’t count me in on that.“
But of course now that Biden is VP and Barack Obama is President, things are different. NOT! The NSA surveillance program as morphed into an all encompassing, out of control data grab on ever single American and in the process completely shredding the Contribution and Bill of Rights. For something that Biden said, “don’t count me in on that,” he appears to be all in now. What’s the difference? Oh, he is in power. Talk about your convenient flip-flops and the height of hypocrisy. Now that Biden is VP, he must feel it is completely OK to shred the US Constitution and spy on law abiding American people. Because the rules don’t apply the liberals. How does one morph their opinion that you can’t trust a spying president simply by whether they are a ”R” or “D”? Especially when the Obama administration has already been caught in the IRS scandal where conservative groups were targeted?
As Liberty Unyielding opines, “aren’t you glad we didn’t elect an idiot like Sarah Palin to be one heartbeat away from the president?”
It would appear We the People” are not for a spying president either. According to a recent Gallup poll, a majority of Americans disapprove of the NSA Government surveillance program. 53% of Americans disapprove of the “Big Brother” watching them and violating their right to privacy. Weasel Zippers provides a similar CBS poll where 58% disapprove of the Government surveillance program. The only group who approves, are Democrats. Funny, weren’t they the ones that were up in arms during the GWB presidency that their library books were being reviewed?
More Americans disapprove (53%) than approve (37%) of the federal government agency program that as part of its efforts to investigate terrorism obtained records from U.S. telephone and Internet companies to “compile telephone call logs and Internet communications.”
There are significant partisan differences in views of the government’s program to obtain call logs and Internet communication. Democrats are more likely to approve, by 49% to 40%. Independents (34% vs. 56%) and Republicans (32% to 63%) are much more likely to disapprove than approve.
CNN asks, Was it OK for Snowden to leak secrets? The question is debatable as the jury is still out as to what his ultimate motive was.
George W. Bush, do you miss me yet?
According to a recent Gallup poll, former President George W. Bush has a higher favorable than unfavorable for the first time since 2005. When Bush left office in January 2009, he has a 40% favorably and 59% unfavorably. It was even worse than that one later. However, according to the most recent poll GWB has a 49% favorable and 46% unfavorable view. George W. Bush has pretty much stayed out of the public eye since leaving office and has remained quiet when it comes to politics and his successor. One has to wonder whether the current occupant of the White House will do the same. With the current state of affairs with the numerous scandals in the Obama administration, a continued poor economy, record number of Americans on Food Stamps, median household income down, and a Middle East that is on fire many Americans probably will pose the question to themselves, “Miss Me Yet?”
GWB did some things that were questionable in the eyes of conservatives and did escalate the US national debt; however, it was nothing compared to Barack Obama as he has skyrocketed the debt to out of control limits. Bush’s favorability is making a come back, but he has a long way to go. Many have said, history will be more kind to “W” as we look back on his presidency and realize he had to make many tough decisions that were important to protect America but was not popular for him.
Americans’ views of former president George W. Bush have improved, with 49% now viewing him favorably and 46% unfavorably. That is the first time since 2005 that opinions of him have been more positive than negative.
Bush has maintained a fairly low profile in the four years since he left office. However, he returned to the public eye this year with the April opening of his presidential library at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
Bush left office with 40% viewing him favorably and 59% unfavorably in January 2009. That worsened to 35% favorable and 63% unfavorable in March 2009, but his favorable rating recovered to the mid-40% range by 2010.
CNN: America starting to remember “W” fondly.
Breaking it down further, Bush has seen improvement among independents and both political parties. Twenty-four percent of Democrats view him in a positive light, according to the new survey, compared to 10% in January 2009. Republicans saw a 14 percentage point jump, with 84% now having a positive opinion of Bush.
The biggest increase came among independents. While 29% gave him a favorable rating in 2009, that number now stands at 46%.
Is Hillary’s approval rating tied to Barack Obama and his scandals, including her role in Benghazi?
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finds her favorability ratings falling in wake of the revelations in the Benghazi scandal and State Departments efforts to change the Benghazi talking points following the terror attack that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. According to a recent Gallup poll, her rating fell slightly in June to 58%, from 64% in April. Clinton has garnered a high approval rating following the days of her husband’s presidency when she acted like she was a second president and told America “she was no stand by your man woman, baking cookies” (VIDEO). Hmm, really? Turns out she was. Now, the Democrats darling and top choice for the presidential nominee in 2016 faces the aftermath of Benghazi where she failed those in her charge before, during and after. According to the poll, Hillary is way down with Independents from 63% to 52%. Look for these numbers to go down even further, the more and more that comes out. Also, with no one answering questions, and Obama rewarding Susan Rice with a promotion to National Security Adviser, if Hillary runs in 2016 she is going to have to explain herself in the Democrat primary and in the general election campaign.
Hillary Clinton said when she was grilled by Congress on the Benghazi attack, “What’s The Difference?” there are four dead Americans. Really Hillary? There are four dead Americans, the decisions made before during and after the attack were a disaster and she defiantly says, what difference does it make? Is this what we really need as Commander in Chief? Haven’t we had enough of individuals of an administration that would leave Americans to die as they begged for help and then tried to scrub the talking points to the point where they reflected nothing of what really occurred?
“What difference at this point does it make?” So we are to forget all that happened because it makes Hillary look bad for 2016.
Hillary Clinton’s favorability rating fell slightly in June to 58%, from 64% in April. That is the first sub-60% rating Americans have given her since 2008. Clinton’s unfavorable rating now stands at 39%, up from 31% in April.
This poll shows only slight changes in the public’s overall assessment of Clinton, with her unfavorable rating now marginally higher than at any time since 2008. However, there is no telling what the future might hold, as members of the House Oversight Committee have publicly speculated that Clinton may have to testify before the Republican-led committee again.
Although Democratic and Republican attitudes toward Clinton have been static over these past contentious months, independents’ views are now notably less favorable. A slim majority (52%) of independents hold a favorable opinion of Clinton, down from 63% in April.
GOP Poll Has Massachusetts Senate Race Between Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez a Statistical Tie
As reported at The Weekly Standard, a Republican polling firm has the election for the Massachusetts US Senate race between long time Democrat Congressman Ed Markey and first time candidate Republican Gabriel Gomez a statistical tie. This Senate race is the special election to replace the seat formerly held by John Kerry, who became Secretary of State. Obviously, Republican Gabriel Gomez has a tough row to hoe in the predominately Democrat state of Massachusetts, but he represents a breath of fresh air, rather than just more of the same of stale old politicians who think that politics is a life-long profession.
Gomez (left) – Markey (rt.)
A Republican polling firm has found that the Massachusetts special election for the U.S. Senate is in a dead heat. Democrat Ed Markey, the longtime congressman, leads Republican and first-time candidate Gabriel Gomez by just a point. According to McLaughlin and Associates, a firm that often works for Republican candidates, 45 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts support Markey, while 44 percent support Gomez and 11 percent remain undecided. The election is on June 25.
Recently, the Cook Political Reports changed the race from leaning Democrat to a toss up. According to RCP, Markey is way ahead. However, the PPP, what so many have come to believe is the Holy Grail of polling only has Markey ahead by 4% and Markey is polling far less than 50%. This race is totally up for grabs and will depend on turn out in an off-off year election, at a time when Barack Obama is in deep trouble with scandals.
Senate Debate: Markey, Gomez Attack Over Guns, Benghazi.
Nearly 60% of Americans Believe High Ranking IRS Officials in Washington, DC & 50% of Obama Officials Were Aware of IRS Scandal … Also, Obama Administration Least Ethical Compared to GWB, Clinton, GHWB and Reagan
Barack Obama, losing the trust of the American People … Chicago-style politics catching up with Obama.
Barack Obama and his minions get poor grades in their handling of the IRS scandal and Americans believe that the IRS scandal was not limited to the Cincinnati office, but went straight to Washington, DC IRS headquarters and the White House.
The IRS scandal is really getting away from the Obama administration as they are losing the credibility battle with the American public. According to the most recent Gallup poll, 59% of Americans believe that high ranking officials in Washington, DC were aware of the IRS scandal that targeted conservative and Tea Party groups from gaining non-profit status. The spin that the scandal was just some rogue agents in Cincinnati has all but fallen apart. However, more damning for Barack Obama is that 50% of Americans now believe that high ranking Obama officials were aware of the IRS scandal, 72% of Republicans and 54% of Independents. This scandal is getting closer and closer to the Oval Office every day.
President Barack Obama is getting crushed on how Americans believe he is handling the IRS scandal. According to Gallup, a mere 32% approve on how he is handling it, while 58% disapprove. Even more damning for Obama and Democrats is that only 26% of Independents approve of Obama’s handling of the IRS matter, while a resounding 62% disapprove. Wait, it gets even worse for Obama. From what was claimed to be the most ethical and transparent administration ever comes the Gallup polling gives Barack Obama poor ethics rating and whose ethics are less that that of former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. With the multiple scandals continuing to snowball on Obama and we have not even including the NSA spying scandal on We the People … look for polling numbers to get worse and worse for Obama.

Almost Half of Americans Say Barack Obama Untruthful About IRS … 53% of Political Independents Say Obama’s Explanation Learned of IRS Scandal from Media Reports is Untrue
WATERGATE = IRS-GATE. AMERICA LOSING TRUST IN OBAMA, THE SO-CALLED MOST TRANSPARENT PRESIDENT EVER.
Hey America, How’s the “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya?
The American people are more and more starting to lose trust in Barack Obama and his comment that he did not know about the IRS scandal that saw the Internal Revenue Service purposely target conservative and Tea Party organizations to gain non-profit stratus. As a recent Bloomberg poll showed, 47% of Americans say they don’t believe Obama, as compared with 40% who say he is being truthful. Meanwhile, 53% do not believe Obana is being truthful on IRS-gate. As stated by poll respondent June Wilshusen, a 50 year old of Yuma, Colorado, political independent and a stay-at-home wife married to a machinist said, “How could he not know? I think any president has to know what’s going on with our government. I think they’re very aware of the IRS.”
What, me lie?
Almost half of Americans say President Barack Obama isn’t telling the truth when he says he didn’t know the Internal Revenue Service was giving extra scrutiny to the applications of small government groups seeking tax-exempt status.
Forty-seven percent of Americans say they don’t believe Obama compared with 40 percent who say he is being truthful, according to a Bloomberg National Poll of 1,002 adults conducted May 31 through June 3.
More than half of political independents — 53 percent — say Obama’s explanation that he learned it from media reports is untrue, while 34 percent say they believe him.
