National Journal has a story out today talking about how presidents who arent running for reelection, history shows, they dont rebound from losing approval rating, Stu said. So you drop in your approval rating, you cant come back unless youre running for reelection and thats what history has shown.
The article Stu is referring to, Why Obama Wont Bounce Back, explains that history shows presidents who arent running for reelection dont recover from drops in their approval rating. If you take a look at the Real Clear Politics average of the last year of the Presidents tenure, the trend isnt pretty.
Okay. Now let me explain what this means. First of all, thats an average And if you look at that chart, it is a steep, steep decline, Glenn said. I told you before the election, you get rid of this guy now or you are going to see a long, national four-year nightmare because I think this guy could be impeached. I think he could be impeached on a lot of things.
In the next 18 to 24 months, Glenn believes the Presidents approval rating could fall to 20%. From the digitization of money to the unrest in the Middle East, the rise of the police state to a lack of jobs, Glenn explained just a few of the ever-growing problems facing this Administration. Add those factors to the failures of Obamacare and concerns over the size/scope of the NSA, and suddenly President Obama finds himself in a position that could very well end a presidency. So what happens next?
So what happens? First of all, pray. I beg you to pray on your knees for the safety of this President. I beg you to pray for the Secret Service. I beg you to pray that everyone in Washington Republican, Democrat, no matter who it is, that they are kept safe because there are crazy people out there. There are. And there are people filled with rage and hate, Glenn said. Please pray for safety on all leaders no matter how you feel about them.
So now what are you going to do about it, Glenn asked. I would ask you that you become self-reliant. And what self-reliant means is you are not beholden to somebody for your education. You are not beholden to somebody for your physical, temporal, spiritual, educational wellbeing, that you are independent on all of those things. Can you do that? Are you that already? I challenge you to do that now. Those will be the ones that will lead the world tomorrow. And we can go a dark way or we can go a good way. Im going a good way
The answers come from love and charity and being who Americans have always been. We will lead again.
I really LOVE that trend. Hope 0 care sinks the won and the dims in 2014. Even the loyal dims in Austin hate the [un] affordable care act.
Holy He-(double hockey sticks)!
Actually, crossed sticks are what the graph shows on the right-hand side.
