Obama Laughs Off Negative Poll Numbers to Barbara Walters: ‘Nowhere to Go But Up’ (Video)
Mediaite ^ | November 29th, 2013 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 11/30/2013 7:03:24 AM PST by Hotlanta Mike

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama sat down with Barbara Walters for a wide-ranging interview that aired Friday night, and the first issue Walters brought up was the president’s record low approval numbers. But Obama just shrugged them aside as the hazards of the job, joking, “The good thing about when you’re down is that usually, you’ve got nowhere to go but up.”

Walters brought up Obama getting booed at a basketball game. The First Lady said, “It’s part of the job,” and said she’s gotten booed as well, though Walters did point out her numbers have always been a bit better than her husband’s.

Obama is at roughly the same popularity level that George W. Bush was at at this poing in his presidency, but the current officeholder dismissed the poll showing people no longer consider him trustworthy. When Walters brought up his comment from years ago about preferring to be a good one-term president than a mediocre two-term one, Obama joked that he’d love to be a good two-termer if he had his druthers.

This is typical of a wild-eyed, egomaniacal narcissist.

His brain will not let him allow the option of even thinking any of this has anything to do with HIS actions or failings. He is a clear and present danger to the safety and security of this country.

Clearly, Obummer is as good as math as he is in being president. Hey numbnuts, 37% means you have plenty of room to go down, you fraud.

No where to go but up? Actually, there’s up, down, stay the same and my favorite... out.

Plenty of numbers left below 37. I guess math wasn’t your strong point in school...what was?

“I got re-elected in part because people did think I was trustworthy and they knew I was working on their behalf,” Obama said in the network’s exclusive.

It wasn’t managing...

In Friday’s interview, Obama said he was looking for answers soon on why the rollout failed so spectacularly.

“Obviously my most recent concern has been that my website’s not working,” Obama said. “We’re evaluating why it is exactly that I didn’t know soon enough that it wasn’t going to work the way it needed to. But my priority now has been to just make sure that it works.”

Why should Obama worry about his popularity when he has accomplished what he planned to do?

Things can only get worse and that is exactly his plan.

He doesn’t believe any of it. Hence the pathetic drama device of Michelle talking about ‘promises’ and his “I keep them” bullshit in the interview with Barbara Walters.

The real tragedy of all this is that his 100 million entitlement leeches just plain don’t give a shit as long as the EBT cards still keep getting charged up each month.

We are done for as a free, working society inhabited by honest and hardworking peoples.

Obama is at roughly the same popularity level that George W. Bush was at at this poing in his presidency,

Pretty amazing when you consider that the media and
EVERY leftist group was pumping out Hate Bush
propaganda 24 hours a day.

Did you notice the way he laughed? Kind of creepy. Also, he knew he was on friendly turf and would not get a serious followup, only softball questions.

He is so protected by the sycophant media, I wonder if he even realizes that serious people see right through his serial lies?

Yup - he couldn’t care less. He’s got 3 more years to continue his “fundamental” changing.

What the heck did everyone think he meant by that???

I watched but ONLY because I had left the tv on ABC after watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas. :)

Missed MOST of the O’s part but did enjoy the older footage of President Reagan and Nancy, President Bush & Barbara and President Bush and Laura and the White House pets. Especially Barney. That little bit of Nancy at the end of the funeral clutching the flag and not wanting to leave the coffin tears me up every time.

The guy is obviously blind that his masterpiece legislation is falling apart and doesn't give a rats posterior about the millions of Americans now losing their health insurance because of it. Either Obama is a sick narcissist who cannot fathom that anything he does could go wrong or is a sinister villain who takes delight in tearing apart the best health care system in the world to satisfy his own political ambitions.

He’s both and I despise him. I caught that clip with BaBa WaWa, this morning where he said that people reelected him because they thought he was trustworthy and I wanted to hurl something at the TV. The cockiness of this man knows no bounds. I so want to see his destruction.

It’s nervous laughter meant to conceal his rage at having to respond to critics and any mention of the horrible job he’s done.

Small comfort but it does eat at him night and day despite his protests.

But Obama just shrugged them aside

He is not running for reelection and he doesn't care about the fate of other rat politicians. Why should he care about his own poll numbers?

Indeed. Remember how the left laughed at us when we said: “The guy’s got absolutely NO executive experience.”

I believe Yassir Arafat was also very optimistic, about destroying Israel, during the many times Barbara Walters interviewed him.

What’s next for the inimitable Barbara? Would anyone be surprised if she landed the first Western interview with Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s new dictator, so he too could bubble over about wiping Israel off the map?
