Skip to comments.President Blames Poor Poll Numbers on Slander

President Barack Obama told a gathering of millionaire donors to the Democratic Party that polls showing dire prospects for the November elections have nothing to do with my policies and everything to do with the poisonous racism and anti-government animus of the GOP.
The President acknowledged that part of the problem lies in the fragmented format of our elections. I won't be on the ballot this November. Voters will be asked to sift through a confusing roster of unfamiliar candidates and issues. We need to transform the process and make it simpler. In the meantime, if we can boil the election down to a basic 'yes' or 'no' choice for voters we may be able to navigate through these tough times. So, even though voters can't vote for me, we can remind them that a vote for any Democrat is, in fact, a vote for my policies.
Whether a basic yes or no messaging strategy would work in a poisonous environment is unknown. As Senator Schumer has pointed out, there are far too many ways for the holders of disreputable opinions to get their scurrilous slanders out, Obama lamented. His proposed Amendment has merit, but could only have an impact in the longer run if we could get enough states to ratify it. In the more immediate run up to this November's balloting the best I can do is remind those who oppose us that the NSA and IRS are still under my authority. I will not hesitate to exploit their full potential for curbing unwanted criticisms of my policies.
In related news, it has been discovered that 10% of the taxpayers who just happen to have their names appear on lists of donors to Tea Party political causes were audited by the IRS. Statistically, an average taxpayer's chance of being audited is around 1%.

I thought it was racism.
Nice one, John.
The book by Arianna Coulter? How old is that book?

and then i knew... :)
Chris Matthews gave him the idea to cancel midterms.
Was what the demonrats did and still do to Bush slander and racism? Zero needs to take off his panties and mom jeans and put on his big boy pants and accept that people don’t like him because of divisive and failed economic policies. Also he’s a friggin America hating communist sucking the life out of taxpayers with all of the vacations he and the salt monster take. In other words Barry, the reason we don’t like you isn’t because you’re Black, we don’t like you because you’re F’n up our country!
The idiot is a real piece of work!
I guess that it would never occur to this brainless, affirmative action idiot that his policies might be the problem?
It may be a very good lawyer move but as a military commander is totally sucks. Men do not respect you and only follow your orders reluctantly.
Welcome to Obama's world. In his world it is all about doing the lawyer thing. Right, or correct, or moral have no meaning to him. The only thing that matters is if he can get aways with it.
Mind melding again, John?
Brilliant . :)
They likely are being affected by slander..
He slanders everyone and people are taking notice.
I dunno about that— his poll numbers at Gallup are UP to 47 today! RCP has had his rolling average at 44! I don’t get it.
If he can crack 45, why can’t Hillary scratch out at 51. Yikes.
‘Tweren’t the slanders, it was them smidgens.
Slander, is it... That idea had to have come from Putin, but I thought they weren’t talking....
OK, this is satire... or is it?
Narcissism is a SERIOUS mental disorder, in which sufferers perceive reality quite differently than someone who is mentally well-balanced.
Those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) are frightening, and should NEVER have power...
But they often do. What have ‘Foolish Voters’ wrought?
The clown is just what he is. Runs around burning fossil fuels and tells the rest of us to live like paupers. Talks out both sides of his upper ass.
