In the latest round of media half-truths, we learn that Obama is losing his political clout. His approval rating has dropped to the lowest level in more than a year, with more voters now turning thumbs down on his performance than thumbs up, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll. The measure of how much people like him also has dropped.
The poll always compares presidents to Congress as if that’s apples to apples. Big deal he is more popular than Congress. Truth be told, he’s barely more popular than post WWII Hitler.
The poll says he’s doing better than Republicans, but so what. Republicans are not popular, because they won’t fight. When they stand firm and stop runaway spending, they will outpace Obama. And it’s already looming, because in the biggest political clash of the year – over the federal budget and how to curb deficits – voters split 44 percent to 42 percent between preferring Congress or Obama.
Obama is butt naked again in the eyes of the public and it will only get worse. They may be BEGGING for Romney when it’s all said and done. The one thing we need is Obama to continue that course of destruction, so there is no historical first female president, at least not a Liberal one. That would be another disaster.
