But just wait until he gets his Irene Bounce in the polls. He has shown such great leadership in the face of a natural disaster, that his numbers can only spike after this! (sarcasm)

So how is it he still wins in a match-up against any Republican?

He’s ‘winning’ in those matchups at 43%. Atrocious numbers for an incumbent. Our guys and gal are still sitting slightly lower due to lower name recognition. Perry or Bachmann at 40% is good at this point. Also, I think those polls included ‘someone else’, which means Perry supporters might be opting our of a head to head with Obama and Bachmann, and vice-versa. Also Palin supporters are probably in that same category for both, but all would likely fall behind our eventual nominee.

I always suspected I was a man ahead of my time.

I disapproved of Obama before he was president.

Shug. I don't trust polls, and perhaps he's seen as the lesser of the evils.

I certainly 'hope'© that the citizen hasn't forever crossed the line for the need for Gov't.

But, that wouldn't shock me.

Since June, his disapproval rate has climbed 5 percentage points a month (from 45% then to 55% now). Thus, by November 2012, he’ll be well over 100%!

Of course there must be some pity factor, since afterall he did cut his vacation short by one day to run back to D.C. and get a photo-op at NOAA, remember the Epic, Historic Hurricane Irene was threatening his beach front rental and he must be seen like he was in charge....

Phoney only works on the gullible too bad 40 percent of Americans are gullible.

He doesn’t that’s why it’s important that we put up our strongest conservative candidate as opppsed to the most popular RINO available.

The question is what does he want more - to advance his commie/muslim agenda farther or get re-elected? He still has a choice but time is running out.

Pretty sure he’ll choose door #1 and hope the MSM and his special interest groups will bail him out.

I’ve been trying to figure out how such a smart young man, who speaks with no trace of a Negro dialect (as the House Speaker assures us) turned out to be such a dud.

After reading this, boy do I feel dumb! It’s our fault: Anyone not standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the president is a racist.

Muncie StarPress op-ed page, this morning:

Right Wing Motivation

“Those who question the patriotism and love of country of President Obama are a disgrace to the country they claim to love. I have searched for a reason for the right wing of the Republican Party’s need to be so inflexible in the effort to find solutions to deficit issues, health care, entitlement reform, tax reform, and numerous other issues. My belief is that none of these issues are the real reason for their inflexibility.

I have seen and been exposed to discrimination, and I have fought against it in my actions, my speech, and in my entire work life, and I am proud of the family values taught by my parents which supported my views. Yes, we liberals also understand family values and possess them. I can hear the denials from the right wingers that I’m so terribly wrong about all of this, but I am certain you are motivated by more than simple conservative views. Your inability to support compromise is a product of your narrow views and your inability to respect or work with anyone who has a more open and flexible concept of reality.

I believe conservatives are determined to erase the mandate of the American electorate, who were gutsy enough to elect an African-American president. Is it racial? Yes it is. No other real reason has emerged from all the right wing rhetoric because of their inability to be truthful about their racism, which they will deny again in response to what I believe.”

0’s approval ratings: How low can they go?
Can they go lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut?
Only if more Americans prove themselves to be racists.

The polls are eerie, with this up and down electoral pathology. I am sticking with Rasmussen for obvious reasons. So far, history is there record. Un-impeachable.

Obama must have seen this post...FOX is reporting the marxist blowhard is going to speak about another blowhard, Hurricane Irene, at 5 p.m.

Why do I think it will somehow end up being all about him?

...Your inability to support compromise...

He needs to buy a dictionary.

Compromise is when both parties move towards middle grounds.

What he's wanting is called capitulation.

There was a bank CEO on CNBC on Friday who said that he's having people interview for a job, but telling him they don't want to start work for between 4 and 7 months until their unemployment benefits run out. Obozo and his idiot advisers want to extend it even more.

I love that sign that's been going around the Internet:

If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you're not a racists, please vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you're not an idiot

I fear these idiots won't listen...

Do you, or anyone else, remember as many libs fawning at past Conventions or rallies? Sure some will always have that maniacal reaction but the amount of pinkos who fell for Obama’s... um, charms, are frightening.

Something funny is going on with gallups numbers recently, they used to be fairly close to rasmussens (who I really trust), and if anything skewed more positive for Obama. But a few weeks ago something changed, and ever since then they have been considerably lower than everyone else.

I am not one of those people who only believe polls when I agree with their results. But I am always suspicious when one is a consistent outlier like gallup has been recently. Especially if they have a history of favoring democrats.

So how does or can reporting Obama’s number worse than they really are help Obama? well i’ve been thinking on this, and here is a possible way they could. By reporting Obama’s numbers as worse than they are now, they can create an artificial comeback later when needed.....

I know... it's out there, and more than likely they just need to tweak their methods to bring them in live with everyone else that has had Obama down in the low to mid 40’s consistently during the last few weeks.

But, like I said I am suspecious.

I have never seen anyone of either party get that look in their eye ever in American politics.

Scared me so bad, I refused to even watch him speak anymore. I was like watching videos of the followers of some religious con man right before they all drink the coolaid.
