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.
- U.S. Economy added a pathetic 142,000 jobs in August, 2014
- The July payroll number was revised up from plus 209,000 jobs to plus 212,000 but June’s count was revised down from 298,000 jobs added to 267,000. Total employment gains those months were therefore 28,000 lower than what BLS originally reported.
- Black unemployment at 11.4%
- Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low, 92,269,000 not in work force.
- IRS Scandal Continues … Benghazi-gate scandal continues.
- ISIS on the move creating a caliphate, murdering innocents and beheading two Americans with a muddled, dithering and weak response from Obama.
- Obama, a disastrous conclusion that ISIS was the Jayvee, turns out it was Obama who is the rank amateur.
- Putin on the move … China on the move … ISIS on the move … Iran’s nuclear capability on the move Thanks to a weak Ditherer in Chief and the world no longer fears the US because of Obama.
- Obamacare is to a costly joke.
- Afghanistan and Iraq all but lost after the loss of so many brave American military souls.
- Amnesty for illegals.
The below average polling for Obama’s job approval is at 40.25% Approve and 54.25% Disapprove.
Reuters/Ipsos – 8/30 – 9/3: 38% Approve – 56% Disapprove (-18)
Gallup – 9/2 – 9/5 : 38% Approve – 54% Disapprove (-16)
The Economist/YouGov – 8/30 – 9/1: 41% Approve - 56% Disapprove (-15)
GWU/Battleground – 8/23 – 8/28: 44% Approve - 51 Disapprove (-7)
USA Today/Pew Research – 8/20 – 8/24: 42% Approve - 50% Disapprove (-8)

VIDEO Shows ISIS Beheading Another American Journalist Hostage, This Time Steven Sotloff … A “Second Message to America” to Halt Airstrikes in Iraq … Is UK Aid Worker David Cawthorne Haines Next?
Hmm, at what point will the MSM stop carrying the water and making excuses for Barack Obama and demand he do something?
The brutal, vicious and heinous actions of ISIS continues, as a VIDEO today showed yet another beheading of an American journalist. Just 13 days after the murderous beheading of James Foley, ISIS has done it again. This time they have beheaded Steven Sotloff in an act of barbarism. Steven Sotloff was a 31 year old freelance journalist from Florida who was kidnapped in Syria in August 2013. The masked murderer in the VIDEO actually called out Obama saying, “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State … So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.” And Barack Hussein Obama is no where to be found. I guess he is too busy dithering and being too cautious trying to figure out what his strategy is. Instead the feckless and clueless Obama would have you believe that this isn’t that bad and “The world’s always been messy … we’re just noticing now in part because of social media.” WHAT!!!
The Islamic State militant group released a video on Tuesday purporting to show the beheading of a second American hostage, journalist Steven Sotloff, raising the stakes in its confrontation with Washington over U.S. air strikes on its insurgents in Iraq.
“I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings and in Amerli, Zumar and the Mosul Dam, despite our serious warnings,” the masked man said in the video, addressing U.S. President Barack Obama.
“So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.”
In the video, Sotloff describes himself as “paying the price” with his life for the U.S. intervention in Iraq.
As the American Spectator asks, “How many more Americans does ISIS have to behead before President Obama develops a strategy on ISIS?”
London: UK prime minister David Cameron has condemned the killing of another journalist by Islamic State extremists as “a despicable and barbaric murder”.
A video of the latest killing reported to be US journalist Steven Sotloff emerged on Tuesday afternoon UK-time, featuring the same militant who killed James Foley, named in the UK media as British jihadist Adbel-Majed Abdel Bary, dubbed ‘Jihadi John’.
According to intelligence group SITE, the killer also threatened another captive, thought to be Briton David Cawthorne Haines.
The Washington Post reported that Mr Haines was shown in the video in the same kneeling position and wearing the same orange jumpsuit as Sotloff and Foley before him.
Mr Haines, was abducted in March 2013 near the Atmeh refugee camp adjoining the Turkish border in the northern Syrian province of Idlib, aid workers who have been involved in efforts to secure his release told the Post.
UPDATE II: Yawn, The U.S. State Department says it is “sickened” by a video that purports to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff. Sorry, but we have heard this before. How about some action rather than reading the same script with replace “innocent person’s name”.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says President Obama ‘Too Cautious’ on ISIS
Barack Obama, the Ditherer in Chief …
This Sunday on Meet the Press, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein called Barack Obama a ditherer in dealing with ISIS. Host Andra Mitchell asked, “The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years. So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet? The Democrat Senator from California Feinstein’s exact response was, “I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious. Maybe in this instance, too cautious.” In other words, a ditherer.
- to be uncertain or indecisive
- state of indecision
- to act irresolutely; vacillate.
- To be nervously irresolute in acting or doing
ditherer – noun: a person who dawdles or is indecisive, pictorial definition, see Barack Obama.
ANDREA MITCHELL: The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years. So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet? Doesn’t that project weakness from the White House?
DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I mean, I know what you want me to say. But I’m not going to say it in that sense. I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious. Maybe in this instance, too cautious. I do know that the military, I know that the State Department, I know that others have been putting plans together.
And so hopefully, those plans will coalesce into a strategy that can encourage that coalition from Arab nations, Jordan’s at jeopardy, Lebanon’s at jeopardy, the UAA and other countries are in jeopardy. So there is good reason for people to come together now and begin to approach this as a very real threat, that it in fact is.
ANDREA MITCHELL: The president back in January told The New Yorker magazine, David Remnick, that ISIS is the JV team. That was clearly wrong.
DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I think it’s wrong too. I think it’s a major varsity team. And if you want to use those kinds of monikers. But I see nothing that compares with its viciousness. I’ve been on the intelligence committee now since before 9/11, and I’ve watched this evolution of non-state actors into world terror very carefully and closely.
And this is really the first group that has the wherewithal in terms of financing, the fighting machine in terms of a structure– a heavy equipment, heave explosives, the ability to move quickly, I mean, they crossed the border into Iraq before we even knew it happened. So this is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous. And they’ll kill with abandon

WHO IS THE JAYVEE MR PRESIDENT … MORE FROM AMERICA’S WORST PRESIDENT, EVER!!!
UNBELIEVABLE … President Barack Hussein Obama admitted during his speech yesterday that “WE DO NOT HAVE A STRATEGY YET” to deal with ISIS. JUST UNREAL. ISIS terrorists have been slaughtered innocent victims, taking over city after city in Syria and Iraq in the most brutal fashion. They just brutally murdered another couple hundred Syrian soldiers this week and beheaded American journalist James Foley . But instead Obama says he does not don’t want to put the cart before the horse. Get of the friggin golf course Obama and do your job. How unprepared, how detached, how derelict of their duty could a president possibly be? Just how dangerous could one president possibly be? And this clown had the audacity to call ISIS the Jayvee … Obama may want to look in the mirror and see he the real jayvee team consists of.
But I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet. I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are. And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of our military, as well. We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them. At that point, I will consult with Congress and make sure that their voices are heard.
But there’s no point in me asking for action on the part of Congress before I know exactly what it is that is going to be required for us to get the job done.
And Obama continues to dither.
More from Powerline, STRATEGY, WHAT STRATEGY?
And yet, by Obama’s own account, he has barely begun the process of developing a strategy to combat ISIL. How can this be? Well, from August 9 until August 25, he was on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard–apparently not the traditional presidential “working vacation.” Before that, who knows? Was there something that Obama had to do between June and the present that was more important than developing a strategy to stop the terrorist organization that was marauding across Iraq and Syria? Apparently so. Fundraising, most likely–the one thing Obama is good at.
The fact that we have arrived at this late date, and our president says “We don’t have a strategy yet,” testifies to the utter fecklessness and incompetence of the Obama administration.
The Audacity of Truth … Hillary Clinton Now Wants to ‘Hug It Out’ with Barack Obama after Trashing His Foreign Policy
Is there trouble in Paradise … Worse yet for Democrats, a 2016 apparent presidential nominee with Obama’s dismal foreign policy weighing her down.
It would appear that Obama has shown his thin skin again to criticism and Hillary Clinton has shown America once again that everything she does and says is for political expedience. Just days after Hillary Clinton trashed Barack Obama in The Atlantic and his foreign policy, she called President Obama on Tuesday to “make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him” when she recently discussed her views on foreign policy. HUH? In her interview, called his decision not to assist Syrian rebels early on a “failure” and dismissed the Obama administration’s foreign policy principle of “Don’t do stupid stuff.” But that was then, this is now, even though it is only two days later. Now Hillary looks forward to “hugging it out” with Obama when they see each other tomorrow night in Martha’s Vineyard. To borrow a line from the 80′s, “Oh my God, gag me with a spoon”. (Special thanks to Moon Unit Zappa and the Solid Gold Dancers.)
Sorry Hillary, you can’t have it both ways.
The statement from Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill noted that although Obama and Clinton have had disagreements, she has discussed these differences publicly before, including in her memoir, “Hard Choices.”
“Secretary Clinton was proud to serve with President Obama, she was proud to be his partner in the project of restoring American leadership and advancing America’s interests and values in a fast changing world,” said the statement, shared with POLITICO. “She continues to share his deep commitment to a smart and principled foreign policy that uses all the tools at our disposal to achieve our goals. Earlier today, the secretary called President Obama to make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him, his policies, or his leadership.
It continued: “Secretary Clinton has at every step of the way touted the significant achievements of his presidency, which she is honored to have been part of as his secretary of state. While they’ve had honest differences on some issues, including aspects of the wicked challenge Syria presents, she has explained those differences in her book and at many points since then. Some are now choosing to hype those differences but they do not eclipse their broad agreement on most issues. Like any two friends who have to deal with the public eye, she looks forward to hugging it out when … they see each other tomorrow night.”
Bill “Bubba” Clinton asks, where’s my kiss?
How could anyone agree and intentionally want to link themselves with Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy? Let’s understand this, Hillary does not feel comfortable criticizing a president with a 30% approval rating on foreign policy, really? That would be the reality. But instead of holding to her guns, Hillary Clinton wants to now kiss and make up with Barack Obama. Or better yet, kiss Obama’s ring and beg him for forgiveness. Welcome to the real Hillary Clinton, a typical, lifelong, establishment politician who will say and do anything in order to gain power and stand for nothing.
As Hot Air opines, in fairness to her, I’m surprised at how much Team O has pushed back. His foreign policy rating is in the toilet; she’s the nominee-in-waiting. Of course she’s going to draw some distinctions between them, and it’s to the party’s benefit that she does so.
When forced to choose between protecting their own legacy and making life easier for the next Democrat to lead the ticket, the Hopenchange boys have made their choice. If this ship is destined to sink, they’re going to make sure that Hillary takes on some water too. Excellent.
Now she has her own choice to make. Having seen how hard the White House is willing to tug on her leash as she tries to walk away, does she tone down her criticism of them on foreign policy or risk making enemies of them by keeping at it?
Does Barack Obama even care anymore?
The Daily Telegraph opines that President Barack Obama has already checked out of his job. Matt K Lewis, a senior contributor at The Daily Caller, writes that “The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing.” If it was not bad enough during Obama’s first term with his over-usage of greens and fairways as other more important issues were taking place, the One’s second term has been even worse. Rome is burning and
Nero Obama is shamefully playing golf and going to fund raisers.If Obama does not care anymore and has checked out, as witnessed by his actions or lack of action … can he just do us all a favor and leave the White House early? I am sure many would not mind, including Democrats.
And based on his recent handling of situations much more serious than a possible post-presidential move to sunny California, it seems as if “No Drama Obama” is no longer even worried about keeping up appearances; he doesn’t care enough to fake it.
Consider this: In recent days, a) Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, apparently by Russian separatists in Ukraine, b) In the Gaza strip, the numbers killed continued to mount as Israelis and Palestinians exchange rocket fire, c) a huge influx of children fleeing Central American poverty and gang warfare swamped America’s southern border, creating a humanitarian crisis. And, oh yeah, d) Christians living in Mosul were given the choice to either convert to Islam or flee the area they have inhabited for nearly two thousand years.
You know what else has happened during this time? a) Obama played many rounds of golf, b) he attended numerous fund-raisers, c) he dined on barbecue in Texas and burgers in Delaware, and d) he almost appeared on the comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show in Hollywood.
I say “almost” because the White House finally relented. “We ultimately elected not to have the president do that interview over the course of this trip,” the White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, conceded. “And that is at least in part related to the challenges of doing a comedy show in the midst of some of these other more serious matters that the president’s dealing with in the international scene.”
Previously Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted Barack Obama for his apathy on crucial current events and told him, “It’s Time to Get Your ‘Big Boy Pants On’ & Stop Kidding Around.”
Also, Sean Hanity offered up a blistering monologue telling Barack Obama, ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”

Another Barack Obama foreign policy failure …
CNN is reporting that the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya has been evacuated due to the escalating militia violence raging out of control. According to news reports, about 150 personnel, including 80 U.S. Marines were evacuated from the embassy and were driven across the border into Tunisia under the protection of F-16, MV-22 Osprey aircraft and drone patrol from above. The only option was to drive the embassy officials out as the Tripoli airport had been shut down due to the violence. The removal of the US Embassy staff took place without incident. As reported at the BBC, It is the second time in more than three years that the US has closed its embassy in Libya. The state department has also urged US nationals not to go to Libya.
The U.S. Embassy in Libya evacuated its personnel on Saturday because of heavy militia violence raging in the capital, Tripoli, the State Department said.
About 150 personnel, including 80 U.S. Marines were evacuated from the embassy in the early hours of Saturday morning and were driven across the border into Tunisia, U.S. officials confirm to CNN.
U.S. officials stress that this is a relocation of embassy personnel and the operations have been “temporarily suspended” until “the security situation on the ground improves.” The embassy will continue to operate from other locations.
A senior State Department official said some of the staff from Libya will be sent to other U.S. embassies in the region and others will come back to Washington.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said that security and safety are a top priority and come first. Really? Also, while there appeared to be no direct threat of an attack against the embassy, it was the rising violence in Libya between the battling factions of warlords for control that caused the evacuation. Too bad the Obama administration and State Department did not take the same precautions in Benghazi, Libya when violence was escalating and the US Ambassador Chris Stevens asked for more security.
“Securing our facilities and ensuring the safety of our personnel are top Department priorities, and we did not make this decision lightly. Security has to come first. Regrettably, we had to take this step because the location of our embassy is in very close proximity to intense fighting and ongoing violence between armed Libyan factions.
Militia fighting in the area of the embassy and airport has degraded security in Tripoli significantly.
Secretary of State John Kerry called upon various factions to engage in a political process, saying “the current course of violence would only bring chaos.” Good grief, are you kidding? That’s the Obama’s administration’s response?
Fox’s Andrea Tantaros of ‘The Five” Unloads on Barack Obama … He Should Just ‘Call Gay Athletes’ and Stay Off Global Stage
OUCH, THAT ONE IS GOING TO LEAVE A MARK … BUT SHE SPEAKS WHAT MANY FEEL FROM THE EPIC FAILURE, BARACK OBAMA.
FOX’s Andrea Tantaros on ‘The Five’ blasted on Barack Obama and said what may of come to believe from the “Bystander in Chief. Tantaros said Obama should keep to simple tasks like calling up gay athletes, war on women press conferences and birth control and stay off the global stage.
“I’d much rather have him not playing in hard cities where real armies can march. Let him call gay athletes. Let him do ‘war on women’ press conferences. Let him talk about birth control and infrastructure. I don’t want him playing on a global stage. Cuz he’s going to muddle it and mess it up to where everybody holds there nose. Hang on the next two years are going to be crazy.”
“Well guess what? We should all hold our breath because it’s going to be a bad next two years for everyone else in the country.”
“I mean, look,” she said. “If he can’t even enforce our own borders, he’s not going to be able to enforce the borders of other countries. So, you know what I say? Good, let him go. I would much rather have him not playing in hard cities where real armies can march.
“Let him call gay athletes, let him do ‘war on women’ press conferences. Let him talk about birth control and infrastructure. I don’t want him playing on a global stage, because he’s going to muddle it and mess it up. So, everybody hold your nose and hang on because the next two years are gonna be crazy.”
Well, unfortunately, getting involved in “hard cities” and “real armies” is very much a part of the job description for the man a benighted majority of Americans have twice chosen to lead this country. And consigning him to the role of Miss Congeniality at the gay pride parade — or presiding over the marriage of Bowe Bergdahl and Chelsea Manning — isn’t really an option.
Barack Obama, a foreign policy failure …
Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz Cheney appeared on ‘The Kelly Files’ to discuss their recent editorial in the Wall Street Journal. Megyn Kelly asked, “do you think that President Obama is dangerous?” Liz Cheney responded, “Yes, there is no question” Obama is a dangerous president when you look at the past six years.
Megyn Kelly: Do you think that President Obama is dangerous?
Liz Cheney: Yes… I think there is no question. I think he is unique in terms of a president who is sitting in the Oval Office who has made very clear his desire is to weaken the nation. And, whether you say it is his intent, whether you say it’s naivete you can now look at the result of the policy the last six and a half years and you got the black-clad terrorists of ISIS now taking over city after city after city in Iraq.
Wall Street Journal Editorial by Dick and Liz Cheney – ‘The Collapsing Obama Doctrine’:
As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama’s past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. “If a J.V. team puts on Lakers’ uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant” (January 2014). “[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated” (August 2013). “So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding” (September 2011)
Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America’s enemies are not “decimated.” They are emboldened and on the march.
The fall of the Iraqi cities of Fallujah, Tikrit, Mosul and Tel Afar, and the establishment of terrorist safe havens across a large swath of the Arab world, present a strategic threat to the security of the United States. Mr. Obama’s actions—before and after ISIS’s recent advances in Iraq—have the effect of increasing that threat.

NBC/WSJ Poll: American Public Grown Dissatisfied with President Obama Foreign Policy and National Security Decisions … 37% Approval on Foreign Policy
Obama Administration falling apart …
According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, just 37 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, which is an all-time low in the survey, while 57 percent disapprove, an all-time high. In the video below, NBC’s Chuck Todd shreds Obama and his poor poll numbers. This poll is nothing short of a disaster for Obama … When asked their predictions on the rest of Obama’s term in office, 54% said they thought he “cannot lead and get the job done,” compared with only 42% who said the opposite.
- Job approval: 41% approve – 53% disapprove
- Handling economy: 41% approve – 54% disapprove
- Country headed in right or wrong direction: 25% right direction – 63% wrong direction
- Foreign policy: 37% approve – 57% disapprove
“This is a bad poll for President Obama, and not a good poll for anybody else,” said Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with Democrats Peter Hart and Fred Yang.
“Whether it’s [Vladimir] Putin, Ukraine, the VA hospitals, Bowe Bergdahl, the events have controlled Obama, rather than Obama having controlled the events,” Hart adds. “He may be winning the issues debate, but he’s losing the political debate, because they don’t see him as a leader.”
But it shows an American public that has grown dissatisfied with President Obama on foreign policy and national security decisions.
Just 37 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, which is an all-time low in the survey, while 57 percent disapprove, an all-time high.
What’s more, by a 44 percent-to-30 percent margin, Americans disagree with the Obama administration’s decision to secure the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five imprisoned Taliban fighters.
