Skip to comments.Obama Laughs Off Negative Poll Numbers to Barbara Walters: ‘Nowhere to Go But Up’ (Video)
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 presidents record low approval numbers. But Obama just shrugged them aside as the hazards of the job, joking, The good thing about when youre down is that usually, youve got nowhere to go but up.
Walters brought up Obama getting booed at a basketball game. The First Lady said, Its part of the job, and said shes gotten booed as well, though Walters did point out her numbers have always been a bit better than her husbands.
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 hed 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.
Yes there is one other place to go...out.
Plenty of numbers left below 37. I guess math wasnt your strong point in school...what was?
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.
Notice it is “my” website. Everything is about him, except when blame is to be assigned.
Well, you could always GO TO HELL!
Or at least prison.
Pathological liar and islamist.
Oops, same thing.
Still in denial.
Out in 2017....that’s where he’s going....along with a lot of rats!!!
THIS is why Obama laughs.
I guess “jobs” are no longer his focus. Good, maybe some will be created.
Did you catch the part where he said “I learned that my website wasn’t working”...MY website?
The guy is a crazy who thinks everything’s all about him.
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.
I DID catch that and thought the same thing.
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???
stupid comment....that’s like the last in the class saying...not to worry....
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.
We’re glad he can laugh off the pathetic job he is doing.
After 5 years, his numbers suck. He sucks.
He hasn’t hit bottom yet in his plan to take this country down several notches.
What a remarkably immature excuse for a man.
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.
Nowhere to go but up.
Nor did that line of thinking work for Nero.
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.”
Chickens. Home. Roost. And know they will suffer along with the rest of us.
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?
Lotta pronouns there.
“My Website” ?!?!????
Obamaville; Popultation You.
I know, right?
