Obama Approval Drops; 76% Want Special Prosecutor for IRS Scandal
breitbart ^ | 2/14/14 | John Nolte

Posted on 02/14/2014 10:19:22 AM PST by Nachum

While President Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, faces a possible perjury charge and increased calls for his resignation over the Justice Department's outrageous spying on the media -- elsewhere, another scandal is taking another kind of toll. A new Quinnpiac poll shows that the public is far from satisfied that the IRS matter is settled. A full 76% want a special prosecutor named; that includes 63% of Democrats.

Well, Obama did promise to bring us together. Let's just hope he was wrong about the oceans rising.

Quinnipiac also shows that the confluence of three scandals (the two listed above and Benghazi) are starting to collectively erode the President's approval rating. At the beginning of May, Obama enjoyed a 48% approval rating with 45% disapproving. A month later he is upside down at 45% - 49%.

The Real Clear Politics poll of polls shows almost no slide for Obama. May 1, Obama sat at 48% - 47%. Today, Obama sits at 48% - 48%. Gallup has Obama at a relatively healthy 50% - 43%. Rasmussen is 49% - 51%. As of now, Quinnipiac is something of an outlier poll, but it is also the most recent.

This erosion in the President's approval

To: Nachum; All

As Americans, WE are used to patiently, and silently waiting for solutions to problems to come from the top down.

This lazy attitude has been the basis for most Corporate and Political Management structures in America for most of OUR History.

WE now have the ultimate in lazy, top-down, political structure: a rouge dictator whom WE allow to be above OUR Constitutional Law.

WE will continue to have the current Obama Dictatorship as long as the Chief Impeachment Official, ( CIO ), the Speaker of the House, is allowed by US to permit Obama to continue as a OUR Dictator.

In all of Obama’s public statements, he has told the truth to US only twice:
1.) “We are only five days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America.”

and

2.) “I have a pen and a telephone, and I will use them to issue Executive Orders whenever Congress fails to act.”

Obama has thus defined himself to be OUR Dictator, and formally gave US fair warning of his intentions to do so.

For reasons that border on High Treason to the United States of America, Boehner as Speaker of the House, has failed his Constitutional Duty to begin Impeachment Proceedings on B. Hussein Obama.

The Members of the US House of Representatives have refused to force Boehner to resign; then to elect a Speaker with the required Sense of Honor to do his/her Constitutional Duty to begin Formal Impeachment Proceedings on B. Hussein Obama.

If WE, the taxpayers, do not force the Members of the US House of Representatives to replace Boehner as Speaker with a new Speaker that will issue the necessary Articles of Impeachment on B. Hussein Obama, then WE, the lazy, silent majority taxpayers, deserve to continue to have OUR Liberties crushed by Dictator Obama.

The future of OUR Republic is, as always, in OUR hands.

DONT TREAD ON ME

Here's a case in which "the voice of the American People" will be tuned out. The MSM will agree wholeheartedly.

Of course, a Republican party that cared about the future of the country could make this into a groundswell, gamechange dynamic that would sweep the Democrats from power for the next four or five election cycles.

Like that's going to happen.

Obama needs to be impeached. THEN we need to scrutinize his acts as President to determine WHAT criminal charges should be brought against HIM and his henchmen - SPECIFICALLY Holder, Sibelius and Kerry.

If Americans realized just how ‘hide the truth’ Ken Starr was, they would not be asking for a special prosecutor.

Until Harry Reid and a dozen democrip Senators are removed, little barry is prosecution proof as our growing dictator.

His DISapproval in my circle of family and friends remains at 100%. Adjustments have never been made in this poll. He’s cemented himself in for the remainder of his term/life.

Paging John Boehner. Paging a sorry excuse for the SOTH. Please pick up the white courtesy phone in the lobby. 76% of the country is on the line.

Let’s change the language. It’s the IRS Crimes.

Scandal sounds like an apology will fix it.

Yup. Almost equal to the 90 % who polled that their lives were the same or worse because of Obamacare.

“Until Harry Reid and a dozen democrip Senators are removed, little barry is prosecution proof as our growing dictator.”

If Congress were to appoint a special prosecutor they would have the power to uncover things O’bastard has done that the Senate and the media couldn't ignore.

Obama need not fear this news since it will go no further than Breitbart and FR. The media is our real enemy.

not that there’s anything wrong with being a rouge dictator, but our system of representative republicanism must be adhered to, no matter how ugly it is.

This article is from last May. We now know how Obama responded to the will of the 76%: no special prosecutor and a green light for continuing IRS corruption. Government of, by, and for leftist thugs.
