President Barack Obama’s presidency in a nutshell … his greatest failure is his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare.
According to a recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama greatest failure of his presidency to date by an overwhelming number of 36% has been Obamacare, followed by not getting along with Congress and working with Republicans (9%), lack of communication (5%), lack of leadership (4%) and so on. When it comes to Obama’s failures, there is so many to chose from. You could have answered the questions of Obama’s failures, the jobless job recovery, the economy, real unemployment, record number of Americans on food stamps, record $17 trillion debt, wasteful spending, investments in green energy, the scandals (IRS-gate, Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, AP-gate, Fox/Rosen-gate, NSA spy-gate), Middle East Arab Spring, Libya, Egypt, etc.
On the other hand, Republicans (50%) and Democrats (25%) alike are most likely to mention Obamacare as the president’s biggest failure, although Republicans are twice as likely to do so. This suggests that even Democrats recognize the negative issues associated with the new healthcare law and its implementation. Republicans also cite Obama’s lack of communication and lack of leadership as a failure, while Democrats mention his inability to get along with Congress and Republicans, his lack of communication, lack of immigration reform, lack of leadership, and his inability to bring all troops home.
Hey America, did I tell you that you can keep your healthcare if you like it?
I am not quite sure what some of these media outlets like CNN and … are reporting that Obamacare in Barack Obama’s greatest achievement and failure. Take a look at the poll below, “Nothing/None” at 23% is #1 as Obama’s greatest achievement to date, the ACA/Obamacare is second. Honestly, one would have to be hard pressed to name anything that this president has accomplished that would be considered an achievement and benfit for the United States of America.
Gallup Poll: 72% Say Big Goverment is Greatest Threat to America Than Big Business or Big Labor … Total Rejection of Obama, Nanny State Liberalism
Looks like America might just know tyranny when they see it …
According to the latest Gallup poll, an astonishing 72% of Americans now say that “BIG” government is the greatest threat to America as compared with big business and big labor. WOW!!!
The PJ Tatler makes an astute observation that has a lot of merit, see the chart below and notice when the noticeable upward trend began in 2009. Hmm, what happened then? Of course this boost in Americans fear of big government has everything to do with the so-called “Hope & Change” that they voted for in electing Barack Obama. It would appear that the folks at Hot Air noticed the remarkable trajectory as well. He promised transparency and delivered something quite different. What’s the matter America, you have a problem with the IRS enforcing Obamacare? Personally, I think they need to start including the MSM in these polls as well.
America, wake the hell up and make a stand against “BIG GOVERNMENT” liberalism or it will be here to stay. Elections matter, get out and vote against it if you feel strongly against it!!!
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.
The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.
I would also add this upswing has in part to do with a bunch of gutless, establishment RINO’s who think that it is more important to sell ouch their Republican principles and protecting “We the People” as opposed to retain their power.
Barack Obama en el otoño político libre …
According to a recent Gallup poll, it appears that some one’s job approval poll numbers are in free fall with pretty much every demographic, and Hispanics are at the top of the list. Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are down with Latinos this year from 75% to 52%. ¡Dios mío … I guess me can expect an Obama mad rush for amnesty. However, that is not the only group that Obama has lost ground with. Obama has also lost Moderates (-16), 18-29 year olds (-15), Independents (-15), women (-14), Conservative Democrats (-14) , Democrats (-13), 30-49 year olds (-12), 50-64 year olds (-12) and even Blacks at -9. However, it appears that Legal Insurrection has found one group that has maintained their support for Obama, Conservative Republicans are only at -2, down from 7% to 5%. HA!
Not only does Obama not have coattails, he is now considered toxic.
Can we call this a total and complete loss of the America people? Imagine if the election was held today with the American people knowing the truth about many of Obama’s lies and the MSM was forced into not carrying the water 100% of the time for their leader?
President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 41% in November, down 12 percentage points from 53% last December, his high-water mark since his first year in office. Hispanics’ approval has dropped 23 points over the last 12 months, the most among major subgroups, and nearly twice the national average.
Hispanics’ approval ratings of Obama have shown the most variation of any group’s ratings throughout his presidency. That means their views of him are less firmly anchored than those of other groups, which may help explain why their opinions of the president soured more than any other group’s in recent months. Despite the significant decline in their approval ratings over the past 12 months, a majority of Hispanics, 52%, still approve of the job Obama is doing.
A note to Republicans, namely Speaker John Boehner and the GOP leadership in the House … if you pass a BS amnesty bill you will collapse the Republican party forever. Hot Air correctly points out that the Democrats do not own the Latino vote. You have an opportunity to make real reform with immigration and deal with this issue in a common sense way. One of those is to actually uphold the oaths that all of you took and to follow the US Constitution and uphold the laws of the land. I have always believed that Hispanics were not a monolithic voting block and were interested in many things other than immigration (amnesty), like the economy, real healthcare reform, jobs and the truth.
If the first two months of ObamaCare could push him nearly underwater with Latinos, what will another year of rate shock and shrinking provider networks do? Without lifting a finger, the GOP may be back in play for this demographic — not so much that they’d win it outright, but enough that they could close the gap to, say 15-20 points instead of 40-45. In a tight election, that would be ruinous for Democrats.

Gallup: Americans’ Starting to Hate Obamacare … Currently 40% approve & 55% disapprove … Democrats Running for Political Cover
Then, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “that we have to pass the bill in order to find out what is in it.”
It looks like once the American people have found what is in it “away from the fog” of Barack Obama’s lies and purposeful misleading of the People when he said, “you could keep your healthcare plan if you like it, PEROID!” According to the most recent Gallup poll, only 40% approve of Obamacare, while 55% are against it. As millions more Americans lose their insurance, thanks to Obamacare, look for approval to further drop. So do you understand now why Obama delayed the “employer mandate”?
Americans’ views of the 2010 healthcare law have worsened in recent weeks, with 40% approving and 55% disapproving of it. For most of the past year, Americans have been divided on the law, usually tilting slightly toward disapproval. The now 15-percentage-point gap between disapproval and approval is the largest Gallup has measured in the past year.
Currently, 73% of Democrats, 39% of independents, and 8% of Republicans approve of the healthcare law. Approval is down at least marginally among all three groups since Gallup’s last update in late October.
With the disastrous roll out and consequences of Obamacare, Democrats are running for their political lives. Democrats are supposed to meet with President Obama today and they have already put forth an ultimatum that the president must do something by Friday. Democrats are losing their collective minds over the EPIC FAILURE of Obamacare. Funny, they didn’t care when they were ramming it down American’s throats. As Weasel Zippers says, grab the popcorn and a beverage, sit back and watch the carnage.
Even Sen. Dingy Harry (D-NV) is forced to have an emergency meeting on Obamacare as extremely worried, vulnerable Democrat Senators are looking for a way to distance themselves from Obamacare and come up with some scheme to make it look like they actually care. Is it possible that Obama has even lost Reid?
Probably not, Reid is a true believer because as the Politico writes, even after the WH has botched Obamacare, lied to the People and had such a disastrous Obamacare roll-out, one that could have been avoided … he is “very comfortable” that the administration will solve Obamacare’s problems.

Poll Numbers Fall, Obama Job Approval at 39%, Not a Decisive Leader and No Longer Considered Honest & Trustworthy
Welcome to the
Richard Nixon Barack Obama presidency …
President Barack Obama’s poll numbers are in free-fall. A recent Quinnipiac University poll has Barack Obama’s job approval hitting an all time low of 39%. Also, For the first time in his presidency American voters say by a 52% to 44% that Barack Obama is not honest and trustworthy. Gee America, what took you so long, but welcome aboard?
American voters disapprove 54 – 39 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, his lowest approval rating in any Quinnipiac University national poll since he became president, as even women disapprove 51 – 40 percent, according to a national poll released today.
Today’s results compare to a slight 49 – 45 percent disapproval October 1. President Obama’s lowest score before today was a 55 – 41 percent disapproval in an October 6, 2011 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.
Today, disapproval is 58 – 37 percent among men, 91 – 6 percent among Republicans and 63 – 30 percent among independent voters. Democrats approve 79 – 14 percent. White voters disapprove 62 – 32 percent while black voters approve 75 – 15 percent and Hispanic voters disapprove by a slim 47 – 41 percent margin.
Gallup poll also has bad new for Obama and his minions. According to the Gallup poll, Barack Obama has taken a hit on the characteristics and qualities of a president like a decisive leader and being honest and trustworthy. So Obama isn’t a decisive leader, he is not considered honest and trustworthy and he has no clear plan for solving America’s problems … why is he president again?
President Barack Obama’s reputation with the American public has faltered in some ways, but not in others. Most notably, for the first time in his presidency, fewer than half of Americans, 47%, say Obama is a “strong and decisive leader,” down six percentage points since September.
Similarly, the share of Americans who view Obama as “honest and trustworthy” has dipped five points. Exactly half of Americans still consider Obama honest and trustworthy, but this is down from 55% in September and 60% in mid-2012 as Obama was heading toward re-election.
Have you seen Barack Obama’s average polling lately? Polls with him in the 30′s is not the outlier but the norm. From Real Clear Politics comes the following terrible polling for Barack Obama.
The Misleader in Chief sees poll numbers fall into the 30′s …
According to the most recent Gallup 3 day rolling average poll, President Barack Obama’s approval rating has dipped into the 30′s and 39%. Have the political tides finally turned against Barack Obama for good? Obama is in the midst of attempting to lie about a lie as he has been caught not once, not twice, but 29 times saying to the American people that if you liked your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! However, we now not only know that is not the truth, “We the People” know that Obama and the Democrats were well aware that BO was lying when he made these comments. They also knew that the costs would go up as well, even though Obama promised just the opposite.
Just how low will Obama’s poll numbers go and at what point will Democrats who face elections, unlike Obama, split with this toxic president? Had Obama not “illegally” changed his own bill to delay the employer mandate imagine the number of Americans who would find themselves without insurance?

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.”
Imagine if People actually voted the way they felt rather than just for a party … With the record levels of American dissatisfaction with the current government, there is no reason why all incumbent politicians should not be primary challenged.
Can things get much worse for incumbent politicians? A recent Gallup poll has Americans at an all time low for government satisfaction as it drops to 18%. You have to try to get numbers this low. Across parties, Republicans have a 8% satisfaction rate, down 3%, Independents have a 15% satisfaction rate, down 11%, and Democrats have a 28% rate, down a whopping 26%. Of course I am trying to figure out who is the 18% who actually is satisfied with our government?
Eighteen percent of Americans are satisfied with the way the nation is being governed, down 14 percentage points from the 32% recorded last month before the partial government shutdown began. This is the lowest government satisfaction rating in Gallup’s history of asking the question dating back to 1971.
The real question that needs to be asked is whether this will affect the 2014 and 2016 elections and if incumbent politicians should be extremely concerned.
This Gallup poll is right in line with the recent NBC/WSJ Poll, where 60% of Americans Say That Every Member of Congress Should Be Fired.

According to the most recent Gallup poll, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to 41% with a 52% disapproval.
Could the government shutdown, the pain that Obama is trying to inflict on Americans like WWII vets, and the absolute disastrous roll out of Obamacare he the reason why Obama is seeing extremely negative job approval numbers? The RCP average off job approval polls has 43.7% approve and 50.9% disapprove. There is a reason why they call Obama a “community” agitator … and what he is doing now during the government shutdown is simply disgusting.
Here’s to you America!!!
It’s the Chicago way … Barack Obama and Democrats are trying to cause as much pain to Americans as humanly possible in this government shutdown and it may come back to bite them in a major way. More importantly, it better. A Park Service ranger spoke out against what he called “disgusting” tactics.
“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
What a joke … 99% of Obamacare applications hit a wall.
It’s a batting average that won’t land the federal marketplace for Obamacare into the Healthcare Hall of Fame.
As few as 1 in 100 applications on the federal exchange contains enough information to enroll the applicant in a plan, several insurance industry sources told CNBC on Friday. Some of the problems involve how the exchange’s software collects and verifies an applicant’s data.
“It is extraordinary that these systems weren’t ready,” said Sumit Nijhawan, CEO of Infogix, which handles data integrity issues for major insurers including WellPoint and Cigna, as well as multiple Blue Cross Blue Shield affiliates.
Gallup Poll: Most in U.S. Still Proud to Be an American, But 71% Say the Signers of the Declaration Would be Disappointed of What United States Has Become
WHAT WOULD THE FOUNDER SAY …
On this 4th of July 2013, a recent Gallup poll says that most Americans, 85%, consider themselves proud to be an American. That number consists of 57% who are extremely proud and 28% who are very proud. But as compared to the early 2000′s, the number is still far below what it once was. However, from this same poll, 71% say that the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be disappointed by the way the United States has turned out.
Add me to that list as well. I posted in today’s Happy Birthday to America, that it is up to ‘We the People” to keep our elected politicians in line and that they provide a government of, by and for the people, not against them. People must understand that we fought a War of Independence, not become dependent upon a government. Get involved and change the course, don’t just whine and accept it. Our government is supposed to be of, by and for the People, and deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
71% of Americans say that the signers of the Declaration of Independence would not be pleased with how America turned out. Well folks, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, YOU HAVE THE POWER!!!
As the United States celebrates Independence Day, most of its adult residents continue to say they are proud to be an American, including 57% who are extremely proud and 28% who are very proud. This high level of pride in being an American has varied only moderately over the past 12 years since the question was first asked, but has been lower since 2005 than it was in the years prior.
Americans Believe Signers of the Declaration Would Be Disappointed
Despite their widespread national pride, Americans evince a much more negative response when asked if the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be pleased or disappointed by the way the United States has turned out. Seventy-one percent of Americans say the signers would be disappointed, while 27% say they would be pleased.
