This could be zer0's defining moment, as we proceed to November... A great deal of Constitution trashing has occurred in the last week or so, and it's now coming to a head.

Wow. Be on alert now, as this man may become more dangerous as he’s backed into a corner - as will his braindead diehard supporters. Much mischief and mayhem could be ahead.

In February, 2009, Obama said that if he had not turned the economy around within 3 years, his would be a one-term proposition. Instead of turning the economy around, we got Obamacare, which is about to be ruled unconstitutional. The man wasted his time and ours, and our children’s money.

As the days go by and this number gets worse for O, look for more polarizing, divisive, “us vs. them”, playing on guilt in search of votes memes to come up.

With Clinton it was triangulation. With Obama, it’s division. The politics of division are the only politics he knows.

He’s been at -22 before many times. A week in the negative 20’s would be a more reliable indicator.

And Obama has gone over the Abyss Index line for the first time in quite a while.

The Abyss Index was created by a FReeper -- I'd give credit if I knew who. The Abyss Index is (Strongly Approve + Somewhat Approve) minus Strongly Disapprove. In other words, the difference between all "Approves" (Strongly and Somewhat), and Strongly Disapprove. As of today, a total of 44% of the polling sample at least somewhat approve of Obama's performance, while 45% strongly disapprove, giving an Abyss Index of -1%.

Over 40% of all voters in America believe in this man and what he is doing to the country. These are your neighbors, your co-workers, many of your local officials, the people who you pay to teach your children and the people you pay to entertain you.

I think Fast and Furious my finally be gaining some traction now that the liberal MSM is being forced to talk about it. All Obama had going for him at this point was the appearance that his administration had been relatively scandal free (mainly because the media refused to report any).

Yes.

If you examine the overall statistics, his popularity was even lower before and he rebounded.

Its a long way till November, the Electorate is fickle, unforseen events may occur, Romney can stumble, Obama can pull some kind of “surprise”.

We have to keep fighting and never give up until the Election Results are in. Keep slugging away at Obama and his policies.

It would be a deadly mistake to become complacent. America cannot survive another four years of this Marxist Muslim Racist in office.

A lot depends on what the supreme court does. At the moment Obama is still positive on the abyss index. He might be able to salvage things if he gets all his people to the polls and get the conservatives to form a circular firing squad.

However if the SCOTUS dumps Obamacare, especially if it dumps it completely, Obama will be in trouble. The unions took a big hit from the last ruling. If Obamacare goes down and the Arizona immigration law gets upheld Obama's people are going to go nuts. He won't be able to keep them from doing something stupid. And when they do it will unify the conservatives.

Finally there is the economy. The DJIA got hammered by 250 points yesterday, but it is still over 12,000. If it gets pushed below that then people are going to start feeling it in their 401K accounts. It changes the economy from a theoretical to a personal issue for the upper class urbanites that make up a good chunk of Obama's base. They don't care if the plebes are on food stamps, but if they start getting hit in the pocket book watch for them to bolt from Obama to Romney to get their greens fee money back.

I'm thinking the same thing. This individual is an absolute narcissist who every step of the way has been coddled and given an affirmative action pass after being told how special he is, when in fact he is nothing of the sort.

We've all read stories over the past couple years about the strange personality traits he exhibits. Especially his aloofness and coldness towards those who thought themselves close to the man after becoming politically expendable.

When the make believe world of a totally self-absorbed child finally comes tumbling down, bad things tend to happen.

If his numbers continue to deteriorate, nothing would surprise me.

He has been at 45% before, rarely, but that is the record disapproval. I read upthread that his index dropped from 14% to 22% overnight. Doesn’t Rasputin use a 3 day rolling average? If so, then this 22% will go much lower once the higher ratings drop off.

How did we arrive at such a population?

No, he hit 45% on 8/23/2011 and 8/25/2011. His Abyss Index of 1 is also something he hit before in 2011. Like I said, let's see what next week's numbers say before considering this something other than a polling statistical artifact.

I fully expect this petty dictator to unilaterally invalidate the Defense of Marriage Act and order all states to conduct counterfeit "marriages" before he is expelled from office.

Yes, it's going to get a LOT more unconstitutional before it's over. The mask is completely off this Marxist.

That's easy to answer. Just think of that woman at a rally of his back after he'd just taken over who blabbered on and on about not having to pay her mortgage and gas for her car anymore. Or her friend who said he'd be taking the money from his "stash".

yep. I agree.. to energize his base, the hardcore lefties, to the point of rapture, look for something completely bizarre and so blatantly unconstitutional that it will boggile the mind and stun and delight his disciples, (the press)... I’m think banning of all handguns by executive order.. something like that... or an move of troops to Syria, again without approval of congress. there are probably 10 such scenarios.

Yes, the leaches comprise a very large contingent of that 23%, but there are virulent America-haters in there as well.

The early seizure of the public schools was a shrewd strategy of the Left. We’re now seeing the putrid crop of that early sowing.

This has to be an error. That data point does not make sense. I’d like to believe it but I don’t.

They are called sheeple for a reason.

Stock Market? Dead for the foreseeable future. We are back tot he 70’s. If it only stays flat we aren’t losing as much. Nobody is going to retire on this market. It is only a harvest of money that is losing value. If it does not fall below 10,000 again I’ll be absolutely astounded... no buyers to speak of if the fed no longer prints money to buy stocks. It will recover someday but not soon enough to save some from destitution. It will take years for things to get better.

Even if Romney is successful and if he does things that need to be done... both big ifs, it will take at least two to three years for the economy to even begin to spool up. The leviathan that is our economy and out national psyche is sliding downhill at an ever increasing speed. That slide will not be stopped quickly and it will not be turned around and pushed back up the hill easily. And don’t forget, we have at least two generations of people who are basically freedom and republic ignorant.

Yes it is a three day average. I had to look it up here:

Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

The next couple polls should be interesting.

“scorched earth”

Just a thought here but I have a strong feeling the Obama team would initiate this message in late September if his numbers continue to tank: “...If Obama looses, we (the administration) will not be responsible for the outcry from various parts of the country. We will not be able to control the anger, frustration, and rage as a result of Obama being voted out...”

This would send a message to his base to go nuts, the MSM would back the massage and help proliferate , and scare the independents into voting for Obama - just out of fear. Meanwhile, Obama would be able to stand in the background and watch.

Your thoughts

A great deal of Constitution trashing has occurred in the last week or so, and it's now coming to a head.

The mood of law abiding Americans - notwithstanding party affiliation - are not in favor of Obozo bypassing Congress and awarding AMNESTY to law breakers. Put on top of that Zero's "admission" that he was involved in withHOLDERgate. As far as I am concerned withHOLDERgate is far more significant that Watergate where no one died. AND yes I do believe the black jesus is involved in a COVERUP.

Obama’s Executive Privilege decision was a game-changer because now MSNBC/NBC/ABC/CNN/PBS/NYTimes have no choice but to cover Fast and Furious.

At first, their readers/listeners will buy Carney’s ridiculous assertion that Bush started it and Holder ended it but now that the very existence of F&F has been inserted into the liberal cocoon, eventually so will the relevant facts of the matter, facts that are very damaging to Holder, and, when fully revealed, possibly even to the President himself.

I think this is a good time to pin down our liberal-leaning friends and acquaintances by pointing out how insular their worldview must be when a topic as important as F&F (as will soon become very evident) can be obscured from view for over 18 months by their “trusted” news sources. They truly are in a liberal cocoon, protected from news that might disturb their worldview.

Just a week ago, as the contempt vote was being scheduled in committee, but before Obama’s privilege claim was asserted, I found yet another viewer of liberal news who didn’t even know what F&F was, much less what the issues involved were.

These people really do view themselves as well-informed, and frankly, above us in intellect and demeanor. But this “breaking” news of F&F now shakes both their worldview and their assessment of how well informed they are. We need to use F&F as a wedge between them and their liberal news outlets, and attempt to get them to realize just how cocooned they really have been the past 3 1/2 years. Opportunities like this are rare, and we need to make the most of it.

Once the facts are made clear, a good many people will actually change their minds on a matter, and the facts are clearly on our side here, but were, until now, unknown to many decent people on the Left.
