Skip to comments.Poll: Majority says Obama has accomplished ‘little’
Posted on 01/18/2012 8:13:20 AM PST by sunmars
Voters are deeply divided on President Obama's accomplishments in office with a majority reporting that the president has accomplished "not much" or "little or nothing."
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 52 percent of voters have a negative assessment of the president's track record. The survey finds that 12 percent of voters believe he has accomplished a "great deal," while 35 percent describe his accomplishments as a "good amount."
Among those who believe the president has not accomplished much, 56 percent blame Obama for that state of affairs, while 18 percent blame Republicans in Congress. And 19 percent blame both.
Americans are also divided on the question of how Obama is handling his job, with a 48-48 approval/disapproval split in the survey.
The poll is a stinging rebuke to an administration that private believes their domestic and foreign policy accomplishments are unmatched in recent history. President Obama himself raised eyebrows when he told CBS that he "would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln."

Actually, he’s accomplished a lot, but little of it is good.
He’s destroyed the country!
Last night, Charles Krauthammer, who certainly has not been a Gingrich supporter, said of Romney:
". . . But he (Romney) simply doesnt have the capacity to explain with some color and sort of force conservative ideas."
Which is precisely why he has no business going up against an ideologue who does "have the capacity to explain with some color and sort of force" the ideas of redistribution.
Krauthammer has been slow to come to admitting the obvious fact that Romney doesn't "explain" conservative ideas because they are not part of his intellectual DNA, as they are with someone who has immersed himself/herself in the ideas of America's founding history.
Gingrich's quick analysis of opposing ideas, combined with an ability to put them in historical context, didn't just come about by osmosis. They came about through a lifelong study of history. In recent decades, Ronald Reagan is the only American president who was so familiar with our founding ideas that he could weave them into discussions on "issues" of the day; thereby giving clarity to threats to liberty.
By the same token, the Fall 2012 opponent has studied, been mentored in, and well understands the ideology and strategies for presenting his case for redistribution, government planning, and control--all the while masking them in benevolence and "taking care" of those to whom he appeals, even as his policies are enslaving future generations.
His Republican opponent needs to be able to rebut, rebuke, and reveal the cloaked tyranny encased in his appealing message to those who see him as a benevolent leader, not a threat to their posterity's Creator-endowed right to be free.
Gingrich is right. If the goal of the primaries is to determine a candidate who can bring such clarity to the ideas of conservatism that Obama's counterfeit ideas will be defeated, then Romney, in the words of Krauthammer, "simply doesn't have the capacity" to do it. At least, he has not shown it to this point; and that "capacity" cannot be coached. It must be a natural outgrowth of understanding.
“Actually, hes accomplished a lot, but little of it is good.”
Absolutely. Most Hussein Heads enthusiastically proclaim, “Look how MUCH he has accomplished!”
... the same Hussein Heads who can’t tell us anything great he has done.
FUBO and the lying media sycophants you rode in on!!!
I wish that was true!
Actually, hes accomplished a lot, but little of it is good.

Obamas Gay Past Being Hidden By Killing Ex-Lovers
Yup! For a guy who accomplished ‘little’...he has certainly done a lot of damage.
He is the FUBAR President
I believe Obama has accomplished a lot in his Presidency. A lot of his “fundamental change” and it has all been extremly bad for America, our traditional way of life, our liberty, and our prosperity.
But that is his intent.
Barrack Hussein Obama - The man who despises America
In fact, Obama has accomplished much. He has destroyed America. And continues daily to do even more damage.
Accomplishments: Few and evil
The Cretin-in-Chief has demonstrated many things:
- A Harvard Law degree is esssentially worthless when it is given to someone who cannot handle the load. (Emphasis on GIVEN)
- The presidency should be awarded to someone who at least has held a real job in their life.
- Socialism doesn’t work now. Never has, never will.
- The MSM really is as dumb as we suspected.
The matchmaking club was called the Down Low Club DLC...
AKA The Democratic Leadership Council.
Ha Ha, it fits...
He has done more harm to this country then most can calculate. He is a disgusting, deviant, and hateful mental case. Get him out and get him jailed.
“...FUBO and the lying media sycophants you rode in on!!!...”
You can add to that the 52% of brain-dead voters who saw fit to unload this sack of ka-ka on the rest of us. They, in large part, are to blame for all that has transpired since noon eastern, January 20, 2009. They should never be forgiven for what they wraught.
“They should never be forgiven for what they wraught.”
That’s what the haters told us in December 2000, when they began their scorched America response to what they learned without question was a “stolen” election.
I have a great deal of difficulty forgiving them, but I must deal with them and their horseclinton on a regular basis, so I just do my best not to hate them.
What’s with the almost?
“He is a disgusting, deviant, and hateful mental case.”
Those are only his BEST qualities! Why don’t you tell us about his worst points?

The same as if he was driving a Ferrari and lane splitting on the wrong side of the highway.
And after SS America is on the rocks and listing Captain Obama will trip into a lifeboat and disappear.
