WAPO-ABC News Poll: Obama Hits News Low with 40% Approval Rating … Only 33% Among Independents … Democrats in Serious Trouble

HEY AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?

According to the most recent WAPO-ABC News poll, Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with an approval rating at 40% and a 51% disapproval. Actually, it is curious as to why it is not even lower. Among Independents, Obama only has a 33% approval. Under Obama’s watch, everything is a colossal disaster. Nothing is going good in the United States or around the world.

The US economy is a floundering mess, illegal immigration, ISIS is on the rise and now we have the October surprise of Ebola in the United States. Barack Obama polls poorly on all major political issues as we are week’s ahead of the November midterm elections and early voting has begun  in some states.

Can you say EPIC FAILURE!!!

Heading into the final weeks of the midterm campaign, the political landscape continues to tilt in favor of the Republican Party, with President Obama’s overall approval rating at the lowest level of his presidency and GOP voters signaling greater likelihood than Democrats that they will cast ballots, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Americans are looking to November and beyond with dissatisfaction about the state of the country and the political leadership in Washington. Two-thirds say the country is seriously off-track. And while more than 6 in 10 say the president lacks a clear plan for governing, …

The overall job approval rating average is not much better for Obama. According to RCP, only 42.0% approve, while 52.4% disapprove.

UPDATE I: Trouble Looms for Obama, Democrats with Election Day 2014 Approaching.

Barack Obama and his political party are heading into the midterm elections in trouble. The president’s 40 percent job approval rating in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll is the lowest of his career – and the Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in polling back 30 years, with more than half of Americans seeing the party unfavorably for the first time.

The Republican Party is even more unpopular. But benefitting from their supporters’ greater likelihood of voting, GOP candidates nonetheless hold a 50-43 percent lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.

Obama White House Link to 2012 Cartagena, Colombia Prostitution Scandal

MORE FROM THE MOST TRANSPARANT WHITE HOUSE EVER: What a shock, The Obama White House knew … Let’s add one more scandal to the Obama presidency.

Courtesy of the WAPO, the White House told us prior to the 2012 election that there was no one involved with the WH advance team involved in the prostitution scandal in Colombia in 2012. we were told it was just Secret Service and military individuals involved. White House aides were given information at the time suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest in the hotel room of a presidential advance-team member. It gets even better, the lead investigator into the Secret Service prostitution scandal told Senate staffers that he was directed to delay the release of the report until after the 2012 election.

Jay the Carney states to media that there was no evidence of misconduct by White House advance team, hmm … really?

As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia, Obama administration officials repeatedly denied that anyone from the White House was involved.

The information that the Secret Service shared with the White House included hotel records and firsthand accounts — the same types of evidence the agency and military relied on to determine who in their ranks was involved.

The Secret Service shared its findings twice in the weeks after the scandal with top White House officials, including then-White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler. Each time, she and other presidential aides conducted an interview with the advance-team member and concluded that he had done nothing wrong.

Meanwhile, the new details also show that a separate set of investigators in the inspector general’s office of the Department of Homeland Security — tasked by a Senate committee with digging more deeply into misconduct on the trip — found additional evidence from records and eyewitnesses who had accompanied the team member in Colombia.

The lead investigator later told Senate staffers that he felt pressure from his superiors in the office of Charles K. Edwards, who was then the acting inspector general, to withhold evidence — and that, in the heat of an election year, decisions were being made with political considerations in mind.

“We were directed at the time .?.?. to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election,” David Nieland, the lead investigator on the Colombia case for the DHS inspector general’s office, told Senate staffers, according to three people with knowledge of his statement.

Nieland added that his superiors told him “to withhold and alter certain information in the report of investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.”

Former Defense & CIA Director Leon Panetta Says … From Beginning, I Thought Benghazi Was a “Terrorist Attack”

Former Defense & CIA Director Leon Panetta in an interview with NBC Today stated that from the beginning, he thought the attack on the Benghazi consulate on September 11, 2012 was a “Terrorist Attack”. But of course that did not go along with Barack Obama’s reelection narrative that Al-Qaeda was on the run. Instead, Obama and his minions would blame the attack on a video. Lately, Panetta has been highly critical of Obama. It is just too bad he did not speak up or resign at the time out of principle. But as Panaetta’s buddy Hillary Clinton says, “What difference does it make?”

“You know, I didn’t have any specific information but, the fact was, when you bring grenade launchers to a demonstration there’s something else going on. And, I just from the very beginning sensed that this was an attack. This was a terrorist attack.”

Former IRS Official Lois Lerner Breaks Her Silence … “I Didn’t Do Anything Wrong.”

HEY LOIS, IF YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG, THEN THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO REASON TO PLEA THE FIFTH.

In an interview with The Politico, an unapologetic Lois Lerner broke her silence and claims, “I didn’t do anything wrong.” PLEASE, just like a lib, always the victim. It is just a coincidence that the department that you were in charge of went after Tea Party and Conservative non-profit groups in an effort to marginalize them heading into the 2012 elections. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal was more than just two rogue agents. It is just a coincidence that the IRS scandal leads back to Washington, DC federal IRS offices. It is also another coincidence that your emails have gone missing and your Blackerberry as well. And of course it was also just a coincidence that when given an opportunity to provide testimony under oath to Congress that you have plead the fifth not once, but twice. Who are you kidding?  Yup, not a smidgen of corruption. Gee Lois, why would you need to plea the 5th  to protect yourself against self-incrimination, if you didn’t do anything wrong. HMM?

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.

Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”

The portrait that emerges shows Lerner is, indeed, fierce, unapologetic and perhaps even tone-deaf when she says things that show her Democratic leanings. She had a quick temper and may have intimidated co-workers who could have helped her out of this mess. It’s easy to see how Republicans have seized on the image of a devilish figure cracking down on conservative nonprofits.

So were the emails destroyed, or do they exist and this has been nothing but an exercise in stonewalling.

UPDATE I: It would appear that the Federalist agrees with SM, “Sorry, Politico, But Lois Lerner Is Not A Victim … but the Politico would have you believe Lois Lerner is a “Hero. Servant. Brownie-baking puppy lover. Sister of the Blessed State.” Great minds think alike!

Ex-State Department Official Raymond Maxwell Claims Hillary Clinton Allies Scrubbed Benghazi Documents in Secret Basement Session … “I asked her, ‘But isn’t that unethical?’ She responded, ‘Ray, those are our orders.’

If the IRS can lose emails to protect Barack Obama, why would it not be believable that the State Department would shred documents to protect Hillary Clinton?

The story is that the State Department shredded of documents before the they were to be seen by the Accountability Review Board. In the basement of the State Department, they were creating two piles of documents, one good for Hillary, the other bad. Guess what happened to the doc that were deemed to shed a bad light on Hillary? Who was present at this “unethical” and illegal document party, Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff  Cheryl Mills and her Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. UNREAL.

But what difference does it make, right Hillary?

Benghazi Bombshell: Fox News Report Sharyl Attkisson’s Exclusive

A former State Department official has told lawmakers that Hillary Clinton allies privately removed politically damaging documents before turning over files to the supposedly independent board investigating the Benghazi terror attack.

The account from Raymond Maxwell, former head of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), was first published in The Daily Signal. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, confirmed to FoxNews.com on Monday that Maxwell told him and other lawmakers the same story when they privately interviewed him last year about the attacks and their aftermath.

Chaffetz said that Maxwell claimed Clinton’s chief of staff and deputy chief of staff were overseeing the document operation, which allegedly took place on a weekend in a basement office of the State Department.

“What they were looking for is anything that made them look bad. That’s the way it was described to us,” Chaffetz said.

According to Chaffetz’ account of his interview with Maxwell, as well as the Daily Signal report by Sharyl Attkisson, Maxwell said those scrubbing the documents were looking for information that would cast Clinton and senior leaders in a “bad light.”

The Daily Signal:

“I was not invited to that after-hours endeavor, but I heard about it and decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon,” Maxwell says.

He didn’t know it then, but Maxwell would ultimately become one of four State Department officials singled out for discipline—he says scapegoated—then later cleared for devastating security lapses leading up to the attacks. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were murdered during the Benghazi attacks.

‘Basement Operation’

Maxwell says the weekend document session was held in the basement of the State Department’s Foggy Bottom headquarters in a room underneath the “jogger’s entrance.” He describes it as a large space, outfitted with computers and big screen monitors, intended for emergency planning, and with small offices on the periphery.

When he arrived, Maxwell says he observed boxes and stacks of documents. He says a State Department office director, whom Maxwell described as close to Clinton’s top advisers, was there. Though the office director technically worked for him, Maxwell says he wasn’t consulted about her weekend assignment.

Mitt Romney Rips Barack Obama on His Past Comments and Foreign Policy, Says Hillary Clinton & Obama are Two Peas in the Same Pod … Romney Says He Will not Run Again for President

Whether you like Mitt Romney or not, Romney was correct during the 2012 Presidential race and debates and Obama was dead wrong.

AMERICA HAS BUYER’S REMORSE … Former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney appeared on FOX News Sunday and shredded Barack Obama, his lack of a foreign policy and his disastrous out of touch presidency. In retrospect, does anyone really not think that Romney would have been a better choice than Obama? During the 2012 presidential debates Obama had nothing but condescending one liners like when Romney was discussing the dwindling size of the navy, Obama mocked him by replying, “we also have fewer horses and bayonets.” Then there was the condescending Obama comments when Romney had stated that Russia was one of the biggest Geo-political threats, Obama quipped that “the 1980′s are now calling for their foreign policy back.” It makes for a good joke, but could Obama have ever been more wrong? Hey Barack … what do you think of Vladimir Putin now?

Mitt Romney also went on to say that he thinks he would have made a better president than Barack Obama; however, Romney also stated that he is not running again. Romney stated he had his chance and his time has passed. But it is obvious to many that Romney would have made a better president and that the American people have buyer’s remorse. A recent CNN poll indicated that if the 2012 presidential election was held today, Romney would defeat Obama 53% to 44%.

Romney also said that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are one in the same.

“I look for instance at her record as secretary of state. Look, her record is Barack Obama’s record in foreign policy, and it’s a disaster,” Romney said. Citing the ongoing conflagrations in the Middle East and the Ukraine and the current administration’s inaction, Romney said: “If you can’t speak decisively, you can’t be decisive. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are two peas in the same pod.”

And to the folks over at Crooks and Liars who have nothing but MEAN things to say about Romney’s appearance on FNS where all he was doing was answering the questions he was asked, Elmer Fudd would have made a better president than Barack Milhous Obama. Romney was not crying he was not elected, America is crying. Had Americans known that Obamacare was a lie, Benghazi was another lie and coverup and IRS-gate … Obama would have lost in a landslide, as he should have.

Greta Van Susteren Says the Obama White House Pressured Her to Get FOX News Reporter to Back Down on Benghazi Investigation

More dirty Chicago-style politics and shredding of the First Amendment by the Obama Administration …

FOX News’ Greta Van Susteren admitted Friday in “Off the Record” that she was called by the Obama White House and pressured to get Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin (VIDEO) to back down on her Benghazi investigation. So much for The US Constitution, the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press. Of course we know the rest of the lapdog media was more than willing to oblige Obama.

“Since day one of Benghazi FOX News has been aggressively investigating. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been more like pulling teeth to get answers from the Obama administration. The Obama administration’s behavior post Benghazi has been weird. Like they’re trying to hide something. First that silly story about that video. Remember Susan Rice on all the Sunday talk shows? Even President Obama kept talking about the video for weeks. So FOX continued to press for information … A few weeks later when FOX news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report. I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty. Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”

IRS-Gate Continues … IRS Now Says It Has Lost Emails of Five Other Employees Related to Congressional Probes

NEXT TIME THE IRS HARASSES YOU, IMAGINE IF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU USED THE EXACT SAME TACTICS THEY HAVE USED TO EXPLAIN AWAY LOST EMAILS, DOCUMENTS, BLACKBERRY’S AND PLEADING THE 5TH … 

IRS-GATE CONTINUES … The Internal Revenue Service is now claiming that they have lost emails from five other IRS employees, related to Congressional probes into the IRS targeting conservative non-profit Tea Party groups,  including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status. Imagine that, what a coincidence? Right Wind News says, “at this point, even liberals have to admit that this stinks like a 5 day old fish.” I am not so sure, I believe they have lost their sense of smell and sense of loyalty to country, rather than party.  It is true that all,  including elected Democrat politicians, the MSM and Democrat voters can see the IRS corruption, lying and cover-up , but are completely unwilling to hold the IRS accountable. Of course it would be a different story if they were the one’s being targeted, see Richard Nixon.

Obama_Nixon

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa stated, “The IRS’s ever-changing story is practically impossible to follow at this point, as they modify it each time to accommodate new facts. This pattern must stop.” Attention Darrell Issa, House Republicans, et all, the only way the IRS’s pattern is going to stop is to defund the agency and abolish it. Enough is enough, never did our Founding Fathers ever foresee the creation of any central government agency with such unchecked powers to target political enemies.

The IRS said Friday that it has lost emails from five other employees involved in congressional probes into the agency’s targeting of conservative groups, leading one top Republican to declare “this pattern must stop.”

The announcement comes after the agency said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings.

On Friday, the IRS issued a report to Congress saying the agency also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe, including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, whose committee has been investigating the scandal, said the disclosure is yet another example of the Obama administration changing its story on the scandal.

“The IRS’s ever-changing story is practically impossible to follow at this point, as they modify it each time to accommodate new facts,” Issa, R-Calif., said. “This pattern must stop.”

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama Ties All-Time Low Job Approval at 38% … 54% Disapprove

BARACK OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!

According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.

Bret Baier Fox News Exclusive – ’13 Hours in Benghazi’: Top CIA Officer in Benghazi Delayed Response to Terrorist Attack … “I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today.”

THEY WERE TOLD TO STAND DOWN ...VIDEO, WHAT VIDEO?

IN A MUST SEE INTERVIEW, their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.  Ahead of the book, “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” comes the following interview with Fox News Special Report Brett Baier and the security contractors — Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto,  Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen.

Fox News:

A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.

Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound. Their first-hand account will be told in a Fox News special, airing Friday night at 10 p.m. (EDT).

Based on the new book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team, the special sets aside the political spin that has freighted the Benghazi issue for the last two years, presenting a vivid, compelling narrative of events from the perspective of the men who wore the “boots on the ground.”

Now, looking back, the security team said they believed that if they had not been delayed for nearly half an hour, or if the air support had come, things might have turned out differently.

Ambassador Stevens and Sean [Smith], yeah, they would still be alive, my gut is yes,” Paronto said. Tiegen concurred.

“I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today,” he added.
