It’s only that low because half of the people in this country are racists.

Proving the Founders correct that a foreigner should not be elected president.

From the article at the link:

"Approval ratings for both Clinton and Reagan climbed in their second terms as the economy improved. The same thing happened to Obama: His approval rating increased from a dismal 44.4 percent average in his third year, to a 48.1 percent average in his fourth year in office."(italics added)

WTF? Haven't even started the second round of screwing the country.

C'mon CNS - you're better than this, most days...

I can see that. All he's done is create chaos and made things worse - world wide.

The moral of this story? Never give an affermative action presidency to a community agitator. All you'll get is..... Oboma.

Goodies. A lot of free goodies (and no voter ID laws).

2012 will go down in history as "The Year of the Parasitic Voter."

The democrats fight voter ID laws (the reason is obvious), because the "poor" wouldn't be able to get a card.
So.....why not assign voter ID numbers to their welfare cards? They'll kill puppies to get their fingers around one of those things. Problem solved.

Clearly the Stimulus was all about goosing certain segments of the economy in the months leading up to the election (there were roughly a dozen slap-dash paving jobs going on around here, for example)

"So how did he get re-elected?"

IMO, economic optimism. Things always look best from the top. Also IMO, if the election had been held 6-9 months in either direction, the results would have been different. But they weren't. At least he's starting 2.0 with a lower approval rating than Bush 43.

The parasites have a self-interest in voting. They vote in hordes, to the person who will give them the most - for doing absolutely nothing more than voting. They now get to sit on their backsides, get free housing, free food, free medical, free spending money, free phones ... all from Obama's secret stash.

The producers, the achievers were too lazy, to self-involved to get out and vote. Too many people work their lives to support their families, start/manage their companies - and ignore the bigger picture. No amount of effort on an individual's part can overcome a bureaucracy bent upon taxing the achiever into insolvency. Glen Beck said it best - we outnumber, we surround THEM. But, we are too lazy, ignorant and lack the will to vote en-mass.

How many "Patriots" refused to vote for Mitt because he was a Mormon? There were more than a few Freepers who refused to vote for a Mormon, for no other reason than that they disliked his religion. Given a choice between a Mormon in office, or Obama- many chose Obama. Now we can all enjoy the consequences of these people's decision.

Funny, the "poor" need some form of ID in order to claim the benefits that go with the Welfare state. Try getting food stamps based solely on a smile and an honest face.

Popularity doesn’t matter when elections at the national level are frauds.

The MEDIA ACTIVISTS... also known as “journalists” have provided an additional 10 to 15 percentage points to Obama. This should not be ignored. Bush lost points by these same journoactivists!

If President POS finishes his 2nd term, his 1st term ratings will be like the Grand Canyon being compared to Mt. Everest!

Whew! That was close! Nice of them to point this out after the election, it might have disrupted everything and we might have had a different outcome!

Thanks Biggirl.

When you're black, socialist, appeal to stupid people and run against an even more stupid party/person (e.g. Repubs/Romney), not much else matters. Certainly not approval ratings.
