That Sinking Feeling

Rasmussen is one of the better polling organizations we have access to, on the web. They now show Obama's approval ratings at an all-time low.

Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. That’s the lowest level yet measured for this president. Previously, his overall approval rating had fallen to 45% twice, once in early September and once in late November.

Fifty-five percent (55%) now disapprove.


Of course we all know that this poll doesn't count for much of anything, right now. The Administration hacks will be quick to point out that it's only a daily tracking poll that fluctuates up and down. And to some degree, they are right.

But what they will not openly admit:

1) The polls may be fluctuating, but they are trending down sharply.

2) This is the lowest approval rating of any president in my lifetime, after the first year in office.

So, if I were to make an intelligent assumption here, I'd have to say that many people are souring on the President. Those who once thought this man to be the hope this nation needed are now seeing they made a serious mistake.

Most of us here at PYY knew this man was not the man for the job last year. And we know it now.

Most of us could not get excited about McCain either. But when we looked at the entire picture, we were able to see that the negatives that Obama brought to the table were way too large to ignore.

Maybe (just maybe) when all of this is said and done, these people who now see the error of their ways will learn something valuable from all of this, if they do not. I hope they learn, because they will bear the brunt of the failed policies of this Administration. I will be dead when the real pain hits.

Think it's bad now? If the nation doesn't wake up next year for Midterms, it's going to sink into a real abyss.

Someday, China will call back all of its notes -- while many of the younger generation will then be trying to put their kids through college and saving for their retirement.
They will be the ones who will watch everything they worked for completely disappear. Despite playing by the rules, they will see their hopes and dreams vanish into thin air, while the Obama hacks live like royalty from the bribes and dirty transactions they took and committed, while in office.

But don't listen to me....I am just one of the many people that typed his ass off last year to prevent this from happening.

What the hell do I know?

Speaking of that, have you heard our President is looking at a deal to send billions of dollars to China to entice them to stop spewing CO2 into the air? Hard to believe....

My question is, who are the people who APPROVE of the President? Can they name one good thing he's done? I mean, he's continued much of the GWOT policies of GWB, which I like, but he constantly takes steps back, by, eg. neutering the CIA. I don't see anything at all the approve of.

His real problem is the polls inside the poll. Most importantly the independants. If he loses these voters the Dems could be in a lot of trouble next year.

Members of the Obama cult.

This is what they are overlooking. These are the people who will be angriest, for allowing him to con them.

He's just not losing Independents, he's losing Dems...even the so-called "progressives". If you look at Huffington Post, they're in a tizzy! I've never seen so many unflattering pics and stories about Obama than I have in the last 48 hours. They're not liking the view they're getting from under the bus.

The only people who love Obama now are the Big Pharma lobbyists and the health care industry. Heck, he's even managed to alienate the Black Caucus!

I have been getting the impression that his base is not happy with him right now. The same goes for Dems in Congress. Dean is wanting the current bill killed and other Dem Senators are privately saying they will not support the bill, without a public option.

Disarray is the word that comes to mind.
