Gallup: Disapproval of Obama Has Climbed 5 Points Since Christmas
Cybercast News Service ^ | December 30, 2012 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted on 12/31/2012 12:33:22 AM PST by Olog-hai

With the federal government approaching the so-called “fiscal cliff,” when federal income tax rates will increase across-the-board back to the level they were under President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama’s disapproval has climbed 5 points in the Gallup polled since Christmas. …

Pretty frickin late to the dance, ain't they?

Elections DO have consequences. For years later, they knew what they were getting.

Truth to tell, I still think the election was stolen. Too many things just don't add up about it. NOBODY thought Obama was going to win. NOBODY! And then *POOF* it happens. I don't buy it. Not for a minute.

If we had real news media instead of the ABCNNBCBS agitprop gang, they would have been all over the coming fiscal debacle in September. But they kept mum for duh won.

Maybe they just realized their little paychecks are going to feel the bite, too.

Too many decent men and women have fought and died for America on battlefields here and all over the world for people like us to throw up our hands and become Boehner-like Surrender Monkeys in a battle where our lives are not even on the line.

NEVER GIVE UP!

Zulu, I am trying not to give in to despair.

I have never seen such a lack of leadership in DC on ALL levels, and across both parties as I see today.

The real fight is just beginning, with gun control and the debt ceiling fight dawning after New Year’s.

The challenge will be to organize and to be relentless in opposition to any erosion of our Constitutional rights.

This will be our generation’s fight, and contribution to the American Republic.

I believe it was stolen as well. Whatever happened when 59 districts in one of the swing states had zero votes for Romney? 100% Obama votes....was that ever investigated? I do not believe for one minute that America voted this guy back into office.

Totally agree with you on all points.

I think all of us should become more active in the Tea Party. The GOP has become worse than useless. Under its current leadership, it has become an IMPEDIMENT.

I think the time for an active principled third party is here.
If they couldn’t beat a guy with a record like Obama, they can’t beat anybody. The fact that the RINO leadership maneuvered a flip-flopping loser like Romney into the Party’s Primary choice DESPITE the opposition of the majority of rank and file GOP voters, the fact that it comes out later he didn’t even WANT the slot, the fact that he ran such a PATHETIC campaign in the most important election in history, shows they are ready for the garbage dump.

EVEN MORE, despite the fact that Obama’s “victory” was HARDLY a blow-out, the GOP leadership in the House and Senate has demonstrated they are willing to roll over and play dead to accommodate him on Obamacare and the tax situation, even though they CONTROL the House, demonstrates their problems go far beyond just a presidential election.

I’m a card carrying Republican and have been since Reagan ran in his first primary and I watched Barry Goldwater get nominated. I always have voted Republican regardless. NO MORE. I will NEVER vote for a RINO again - EVER. I will NEVER contribute to the GOP as a political party again EVER. If the Tea Party or a viable conservative alternative comes along, I will register and vote in that party in the future.

The GOP still has a lot of good solid conservatives - Rubio comes to mind, that new black Senator from South Carolina, Bachmann, etc. I WILL contribute to their campaigns INDIVIDUALLY. But to the political party of Romney, Reince Pribus, Carl Rove, Juan McCain, Lidnsey Graham, etc. NEVER AGAIN.

We need a viable third party which represents conservatives. Republicans no longer do - if the ever did. That party can and should run its own candidate whenever the GOP runs a RINO and do everything to get the RINO defeated regardless. If the GOP has a moment of sanity and runs a conservative, then that party should endorse and support him/her.

But this situation has gone on for far too long with the GOP. To some degree or the other, the Democrat Party does a really good job representing the interests of the anti-American, anti-Constitutional, far left radicals who represent most of their membership.

Its not too much to expect that the party who presents themselves as their opposition do the same thing for us.

Agree with you totally.

I just changed my registration to in affiliated from Republican.

I can no longer stomach having them play Lucy holding the football for me. Been burned too many times in the last twenty years.

Obama was such a clear and present danger, yet the GOP gave us McCain and Romney to oppose him, neither of which had the fire in the belly needed to save this country from Marxists.

We need a third party that we can get behind and promote our values, which are the values that made this country and which are the only answer to save it.

Watch the GOP cave on the bogus fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling. And do we really think they will fight for the Second Amendment unless we shove a steel rod up their spines?

Why does anyone expect we as conservatives will continue to support such a party?

“A Snake Is A Snake, Is A Snake”
I was once told a joke about a snake that was found in the snow, he was freezing from the cold, a young man found him and was afraid to pick him up because he was a snake. The snake started begging the young man to help him get warm because he was so cold. The snake told the young man that he could put him under his his shirt next to his body, so he could get warm; the young man told him no, because he was a snake, that bite people. well the snake begged and pleaded and promised not to bite him if he helped him. So, against the young mans better judgement, he picked up the snake that was almost frozen, rubbed him and put him under his shirt to keep warm. The snake enjoyed the warmth of the young man body, the snake got so warm and comfortable, that he remembered that he was a snake and bit the young man. As the young man lay dying, he asked the snake why. The snake, smiled and said, I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself, but you knew I was a snake.

They're asking us to believe that all of the undecides broke for an incumbent, which has never happened, and that fewer people voted for RR than for John McCain which I can't believe either. I believe a lot of GOP votes simply fell into bit buckets, the system is basically broken.

Democracy is a good system for governing a relatively homogeneous people with shared ideals and values; it is not a reasonable system for sharing power between two or more groups with nothing in common at all who basically just hate eachother. At that point, all you have left is a contest to see who can do the better job of gaming the system, and the dems are simply much better at that than we will ever be.

No marriage this bad would last five seconds and we should be thinking about ways to affect a divorce without a second civil war. Red/blue county maps show the dems owning something like 20-25 population centers and little other real estate outside of that, and they should not be running our lives on that basis.

The election was stolen by 385,000 votes in 5 states and no one can prove otherwise. The truth is the truth... and being the truth... no media or politician will ever state the truth... the truth is not in them.

This is identical to the "John Kerry really won the election" argument in 2004. And just as foolish.

Let's learn from what the shocked, unbelieving Democrats did after THEIR "I can't believe it" election:

1) They stopped pandering to the "middle" No more "reporting for duty" embarrassments..
2) They developed the passion of their base with very energetic propaganda techniques.
3) They understood that the "independents" were not high-information sophisticates analyzing every detail of public policy, but rather a herd of stupid adolescent-level sheep, waiting to be told by their betters what was cool and what to do.
4) They went looking for votes where the consultants said there were not any.
5) They chose a leader who, like Reagan, like LBJ, like FDR, like (yes) Lincoln, was committed to his worldview above all things and would not bend an inch on his (Marxist) fundamentals.

The Democrats learned a lot from their (to them) astonishing defeat. May we do the same.

Check with President Kerry on that one.

Look, Barry and his boys "got" the undecideds and Team Romney did not.

Kissing up to women at the convention and taking no strong stands on anything gave the "undecideds" much, much more credit than they deserved.

They were (and are) a herd of sheep, waiting to be told what to think and what to do, Axelrod understood this in detail, Romney did not.

End of story.

Years ago conservative Republicans were talking about replacing the income tax by VAT, and the left naturally were against it. Now the left is open to VAT but of course the left will keep the income tax to divide the working people into the “rich” and the “middle class”.

The Obozo supporters are incapable of connecting the dots that they have to pay their masters through higher taxes built into their daily purchases...they will continue to be told and believe it is greedy corporations.

"...fewer people voted for RR than for John McCain which I can't believe either."

Well, you shouldn't believe it, because it didn't happen.

Romney got about a million more votes than McCain did, and Obama 2012 got about four million fewer votes than Obama 2008 did. Also, about 200,000 more people voted for a third party than in 2008. All the totals moved in the right direction - just not far enough.

Chat with the average Joe in the street who did not care much for Wall Street before (and is now triply torqued-off about the bailout) and he has 100% bought into the Leftist rhetoric about "making them pay it back".

I also think FICA withholding will get extended to very high levels of income. Perhaps to every last dime. There is simply no political will to address Social Security in any other way.

Unfortunately, nobama has a (virtually) guaranteed four more years to destroy America.

The presidental pollsters may as well fold their tents and go home. nobama’s approval rate is completely meaningless now.

What’s the difference between him having a 90% approval rate and a 10% approval rate? Nothing.

Of course people are going to blame Obama.
This whole fiscal cliff debacle was started because Obama wanted to raise taxes. If he and Democrats hadn’t wanted to raise taxes we would not be at this cliff.

Where to go? My husband and I are probably stuck, because no country wants old fogeys unless they are rich, and that leaves us out. However, if things get worse here, I hope our kids and grandchildren could escape.

People who criticize you should wake up and realize that the majority of the people in this country have chosen to become another Greece. I see no reason to be part of this destruction if one can avoid it.

For couples, Central and South America are very popular now.
Go to www.internationalliving.com, and www.escapefromamerica.com
Living there is far cheaper then in the USSA.
The Philippines is VERY cheap, but seems to appeal mostly to single men with Philippine wives.
I see very few American couples, probably because of immigration laws.
