Barack Obama’s approval rating slid into dangerous territory this week, with the latest Reuters-Ipsos poll showing just 35 percent of Americans approve of the president’s job performance even as he leads the nation into a war against Islamic fundamentalism in the Middle East.
Fifty-eight percent of Americans expressed disapproval of the White House’s current occupant — 37 percent of them “strongly.” Just 17 percent strongly approved of Obama’s current performance. The poll is based on a five-day rolling average.
I’ve always said – don’t even talk to me until it gets down to at least 35%. He finally got there.
Man, it sure took a lot of scoamf-tastic suckage for the vast majority of the American people to finally see what a thoroughly corrupt, abysmal failure the man is.
Via the Washington Examiner’s Naemie Emery, Democrats have Words of advice for a failing president:
Dear Mr. President:
Speaking for many who wish you success, we urge you to seek professional counsel concerning a number of serious matters that are causing us and some others concern.
Your approval ratings are down, Democrats in key states have resorted to running against you, and you were recently named the worst president since World War II ended — defeating (if that’s the word) both Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon, with whose names the words “malaise” and “Watergate” are forever entwined. Assuming you find this prospect distasteful, we suggest for a start that some small steps be taken, beginning with the first and perhaps most important: admit that you have been wrong.
You may think “Don’t do stupid stuff” is a really cool slogan, but stupid describes most of your actions since you took your hand off the Bible in 2009. It was stupid to let Vladimir Putin know you don’t care about eastern Europe; stupid to not give early support to Iranian dissidents; stupid to intervene in Libya and then leave the country; stupid to not arm the Syrian rebels back when they had a chance of succeeding; stupid to draw a line in the sand and let Syrian dictator Bashar Assad cross it; stupid to abandon Iraq against the warnings of all your advisors; and stupid to turn a blind eye toward the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria when it still could have been easily handled, long before it had taken two cities Americans died for, and almost dismantled Iraq.
