Skip to comments.Obama Ratings Sink As Trustworthiness Comes Into Question
Posted on 11/02/2013 10:23:44 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
Barack Obama has been subjected to as many personal attacks as any modern president.
Terrorist. Traitor. Hater of America. Secret Muslim.
Unusually for a politician, however, the one thing he hasn't been called much is a liar, except by his most adamant critics.
That's all changed now. Obama is being widely called out for having claimed, repeatedly, that under the Affordable Care Act, people who liked their health insurance plans could keep them.

NPR just pulled a wisdom tooth !
Welcome to the Tea Party, NPR. Please proceed to the delousing area before entering America.
Barry’s poll numbers are tanking because the communists have moved on to pimping their next fascist dictator, Mrs. Slick Willie. The Kenyan got a lot of the communist agenda accomplished but the boy is finished. Time to move on to the next big thing. “The smartest and most qualified person to have ever lived not only on this planet but in the entire universe.” Hillary Benghazi.
Duh!! There is no question, ya think?
Change is good. Moving forward and all that psycho-babble garbage-talk. So 0bama should relax and accept this change, that even his liberal allies finally figured out that he is Jay-Zee clone. Our rapper in Chief. A stone cold liar is many situations. Why? Because he likes lying and being a greasy salesman from the hard sell school.
0 is also an David Axelrod clone. That pathetic crumb has been on TV recently lying to the American public. Why? Because they are ego-addicted to power and lies is how they get it. Lying leftist crap is his hobby. He doesn’t need the money.
He’s the whole 9 yards. the real deal, the waterwing wonder, le pedaler dejure, meat on a stick, teflon chicago-style
NPR just has to keep covering up for their boy. They can look up the fact that in June 2010, Sen. Enzi of Nevada introduced legislation to fix the ObamaCare law because he and other GOP legislators discovered that buried in ObamaCare’s 2200 pages, 66% of independent consumers of health care plans and 45% of employer-sponsored plans would not be grandfathered in as of January 1, 2014.
The Democrats, including Manchin of WVA and Landrieu of LA, voted against that bill. Now they are lying through their teeth, insisting no one knew that people would be thrown off of well-designed plans that were affordable for their families. Every GOP senator should bring up this fact in every interview. The bill could have been changed three years ago to save truly affordable health plans for America’s families.
George Bush took a hit in the last part of his second term, but The Won is sinking way beyond that, into the same range as Nixon forty years ago.
All we need now is for a personally very disillusioned member of this regime, on the order of John Dean, to step out of the shadows, and spill everything that has been going on in secret. Maybe Edward Snowden could have already filled that slot, but he ran away from the US before he could be really effective.
“In their minds, the means always justify the ends”
One of us is dyslexic.
I read the article.
It is too long, in the same way a liar talks too much to try to get out of something.
The concluding paragraph is so mumbling and confusing, it reminds me of why I stopped reading mainstream media like ‘Newsweek’, that used so many big words and convoluted sentences when I could easily read Bill Buckley’s thoughts.
Here it is. It’s maddeningly bad English. I’m not sending my kids to a university:
“In the short-term, Obama is not controlling the way people think about his administration,” says Stuckey, the Georgia State professor. “Obama risks losing the people who were on his side [regarding health care], and a big part of that is he seems to have been duplicitous.”
That's NPR-speak for "is now obviously a bald-faced liar."
I'm surprised that the fourth sentence of the excerpt was allowed past their editor. If they have one.
I would have expected it to read more like this:
"That's all changed now. Obama is perceived by his critics as having claimed, repeatedly, that under the Affordable Care Act, people who liked their health insurance plans could keep them."
This list leaves out his most destructive achievement: trashing what little remained of “family values” in America. Now we have gay “weddings” in the Supreme Court and at West Point, thanks to the One.
President Obama is certainly one of the most trustworthy presidents in my lifetime. We FReepers, for example, knew what he was about even before he was first elected, and he’s held true to that throughout it all. That’s why it wasn’t hard to predict he’d never, ever cooperate with the House to delay Obamacare even though he knew the website wasn’t ready.
President Obama, with all due respect, is simply an ideologue out of his league. He is probably the least qualified person ever elected president, and it shows. The man is our first affirmative action president, and I’m really trying to be fair. Barack Obama was elected based on two reasons: his skin color and his ideology.
The problem is, what happens when someone like that is finally put in a position where people don’t just simply bow down and do whatever he wants? What if he has to cooperate with people who don’t share his ideology and don’t feel guilt at the sight of his skin color? I guess he just goes and plays golf, because President Obama is the opposite of King Midas. Everything he touches turns to crap, and he’s unfortunately our country’s leader for another three years.
Comes into question? There has never been any question in my mind since the '08 campaign. When it comes to trustworthiness obama has none. Nada. Zip. Well, I trust that when faced with a decision he will do whatever is worst for America.
...Terrorist. Traitor. Hater of America. Secret Muslim...
Terrorist? Maybe not by the classical definition, but he certainly supports many terrorists. Traitor - yes, he has done things to weaken America in the face of our enemies. Hater of America - absolutely, no question. Secret Muslim - possibly.
Treason doth never prosper
What’s the reason
For if it prosper
None dare call it TREASON!
I believe that happened like four years ago. Its good that NPR is coming round to it.
A very belated and random act of journalism. Now they can go back to being a propaganda mouthpiece.
Now, the guy who could write that, probably could invent the john, or something.
Yes it does.
(I “borrowed” the list!)
Alan, you are either an idiot or have your head up your rear end. THE FOREIGNER has been lying to the american people since his ELIGIBILITY SCAM was swept under the rug, by MSM frauds like you. And he hasn’t stopped since. OBAMACARE is just the latest. You see, LIBERALS don’t consider it lying to get their WARPED AGENDA across. THEIR NOBLE LIES. Much like the MUSLIMS can lie to non believers and don’t consider it a lie. I BELIEVE NOTHING THE FOREIGNER HAS TO SAY ABOUT ANYTHING.
Terrorist. Traitor. Hater of America. Secret Muslim. Liar.
Well, the thing is, every single one of these charges (plus Communist) is true.
And he isn’t even a secret Muslim. He IS openly a Muslim according to every definition that Muslims use. His father was a Muslim. His stepfather adopted him as a Muslim. He took Muslim lessons in school. He attended Muslim services in a mosque. He spoke the famous words that declare you are a Muslim—many times! And there is absolutely no record that he was ever baptized, or was ever actually a Christian.
Maybe he misspoke when he solemnly referred in that TV interview to “my Muslim faith.” But the fact that he only attends church very occasionally—for photo ops or campaigning—is telling. As is the fact that he persistently favors the Muslim side, and has installed Muslim terrorists in high offices in the military and the security services.
If any Republican spoke words like he does, the press would be all over him. But when Hussein speaks about his Muslim faith, or about campaigning in all 57 states, the press simply ignores it. And anyone who mentions it is regarded as a racist, extremist, Nazi, KKK-loving Obama hater.
Might matter if he was up for election, but he ain’t.
His approval rating could be -9,000, and it wouldn’t matter at all.
Terrorist. Traitor. Hater of America. Secret Muslim. Unusually for a politician, however, the one thing he hasn't been called much is a liar, except by his most adamant critics. That's all changed now.Obama is a Liar = Obama is a Terrorist, Traitor, Hater of America, Secret Muslim.
In the short-term, Obama is not controlling the way people think about his administration,
“when I could easily read Bill Buckleys thoughts.”
Did you ever see this vid of Woody Allen and Bill Buckley, back in a different day of politics:
His approval rating could be -9,000, and it wouldnt matter at all.”
But 2014 is an election year. And it's showing with a growing number of wobbly democrats. Many of those are not in easy districts like Pelosi or Rangel. And they may be reluctant, at least during an election year, to help Barry turn us into a progressive paradise
With a grateful nod to Bob and Ray!
Race, sure. But I don't remember anybody very excited by any ideology he may have had. It was more a matter of feel-good slogans, "inspiring" photo ops, and not being Bush.
Unusually for a politician, however, the one thing he hasn’t been called much is a liar, REALLY!?!?!?!
President Lyndon Johnson, watching live in the White House, reportedly then turned to aides and said, If Ive lost Cronkite, Ive lost Middle America.
We were at that time, February 27, 1968, in the middle of a war in Vietnam and the support of the 60's version of the MSM was crucial to that mission.
Run the calendar up 45 years plus and we find NPR, an important element of today's much more liberal MSM, doing a Cronkite treatment on Obama.
'Tis just a sign. NPR is not Cronkite. But the dam may be breaking.
Once he consumes their power, he will not need them.
It really was. People like woody Allen came upon their politics honestly and could make fun of differences. Now liberals get so mad.
Mr. Buckley explains it so succinctly, proving my point. He was so common sensical and logical.
And Allen respects him, and not like he’s caught off guard. He just disagrees with him, but he’s respectful and lets him speak without even an eyeroll.
I agree with most of what Citizen has to say; but, I also agree with you X - I don’t think that most that voted for him did so because of his ideology (I don’t think he always showed his true ideology - remember, he threw the Rev. Wright and others under the bus). And, I would add that he told a lot of lies. IMHO during his first campaign he didn’t say a lot that most would “get” (except FReepers and other conservatives). He said a lot of things, but nothing really substantive - people believed he was speaking to them and they heard what they wanted to hear. He couched his messaging and speeches to same - leaving a lot to be meant for an individual’s interpretation.

Trustworthiness? When did he ever have it?

To call them slow learners is to assume that they could progress and maybe improve their intellectual skills.
No these are Rush’s full fledged “low information” voters...who will not improve over time.
“Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett builds the figurative bombs that Obama later throws at America
Americas real president wears a skirt”
By Judi McLeod (Bio and Archives) Thursday, October 31, 2013
They howled, for instance, at his claims about being out of the loop when it came to the bungled Fast and Furious gun-swap program, or that he only found out that the IRS was targeting conservative organizations for scrutiny from news reports.
It's not just Republicans who are growing more skeptical the situation is just weeks removed from an episode in which the country nearly went to war with Syria to preserve Obama's "credibility" about use of chemical weapons being a red line.
And it seems doubtful to many people that Obama could have been kept in the dark when it comes to tapping the phone and email accounts of foreign leaders.
THIS is from NPR... Yeah, National Public Radio... it's almost like their eyes are opening...
Maybe the Ministry of Truth members were away at the golf course at the time?
The stupidity of the left never fails to amaze me. If he wasn't well informed enough to tell the truth doesn't anyone think that he wouldn't try to correct it? It would be gross incompetence not to. So either the man deliberately lied or he's incompetent.
Personally, I think he's both.
Average intelligence at best.
Totally intellectually overwhelmed by something as complicated as the affordable care act.
Says what he’s told to say.
Had no clue what “if you like your plan you can keep it” actually meant.
