No real damage from the Bergdahl swap either,
@allahpundit This is partly why WH feel they can get away w/ increasingly obvious BS
I knew the VA scandal wouldn’t hurt him anymore than the other “phoney” scandals did.
As long as the freeloaders keep getting their freebies and handouts, Barry can do to them anything that he wants. The lazy sicko “demographic” is skyrocketing in this country.
We are in the early Stalin years. The Chairman is bulletproof, flawless, brilliant, and nobody knows any different.
Honestly, this country is hopeless.
America has gone from a country of Pioneers to a country of Parasites.
Where's Dutton Peabody when you really need him? They just don't make journalists like they used to...

Yup. Used to be they were eager to bring down the great and powerful no matter what party. Now they are just political activists.
Proves most Americans don’t give a damn about our vets. The schmoes want freebies and to hell with anyone who threatens the source of those freebies, even men who risked all for liberty!
Impeach and prosecute the bastard
Trading freebies for freedom. This is so demoralizing.
Obama would need to do something Pro-USA for his poll number to drop any lower.
Can you imagine this generation being drafted. We’d lose to Jamaica
Doesn’t surprise me at all.
This country is brain dead.
As long as illegal aliens and moochers continue to get their freebies from the govt they won’t give a damn about what is occurring..and that is why no matter what Obama knows he is invincible
“As long as the freeloaders keep getting their freebies and handouts, Barry can do to them anything that he wants. The lazy sicko demographic is skyrocketing in this country.”
A number of years ago the rural area I live in had an abundance of cotton rats. One morning I walked out the door and noticed that under the bird feeder were about ten or twelve rats eating the seed that had fallen to the ground. I went back inside and grabbed a .22 rifle, sat down on the porch steps, took aim, and picked one rat off. I stood up to put the rifle away, but to my amazement, in a mere 15 seconds all the remaining rats returned for their free breakfast. So I sat back down, took aim, and picked off another rat. They all ran away for another 15 seconds, but the temptation of all that free food was just too much. This went on, with them eating the free food with their dead comrades laying there besides them, until I picked them all off....
Of course this has absolutely no relevance to what this regime may or may not do, but rats will be rats.
Don't think its about O, its just that most Americans realize that the politicians of both parties are fools who cannot fix any problem regardless of party.
I think we’re completely screwed.
He’s at 44%.
Do you think there 44% who haven’t a clue what a VA is? Who do you think those 44% voted for?
Romney was just about right in his estimate.
Republicans have been sending their kids to college to be converted into socialists for decades now..
No mystery is has been and is known... but they do not care..
Apathy has set in... there is HARD RAIN COMING..
Oh, it’s about O alright — because he ridiculed it and promised to fix it, 6 years ago.
Could you imagine if the MSM was this protective of Nixon?
Actually, the core Obama voters & Democrats are hopeless. The majority of the country doesn’t approve.
Did they poll the faculty lounges of the 50 most left-wing colleges and high schools?
The same thing was said about Clinton and his cigar and lying under oath perversion.
The proof, though, was in the next election—no one can tell me that Clinton’s character didn’t hurt Gore. It did.
I can believe that O has sunk about as low in approval rating as he’s going to get. But I also believe that the approval is going to get shallower and less enthusiastic and the disapproval is going to get more intense.
Don’t think its about O, its just that most Americans realize that the politicians of both parties are fools who cannot fix any problem regardless of party.
One of the main reasons the problems can’t be corrected in all areas of our government is that the Federal employees are protected by being members of UNIONS. It’s nearly impossible for a Fed employee to be fired for violating the laws or even just for incompetence. ....Nothing will change until unionization of Federal and State employees is ended, IMO.
In this age of universal deceit every poll is skewed and manipulated...
In othere words...useless...
Nothing will stick to him. He will never be held accountable for anything. I have seen some colorful descriptions, of the things that the Obungler could get away with, but today, for the first time I could ever remember, some guest on Fox News, right there on national TV, said he could murder someone, in plain view of the media, and get away with it. He is right. We are right. He could do exactly that, and get away with it.
So it’s official: They’ve filtered all the polls to restrict participation to only LIV voters...
Few issues actually get into day to day conversation. Other than with friends who are like minded, the only issue I recall over the past six years that comes up in conversation with strangers is the government shutdown last fall. The media controls the country’s mindset. I’ve never heard anyone talk about ACORN, fast and furious, the IRS scandal, benzagi, or any other obama screw up. Government shutdown made into constant conversation and small talk.
Not sure about that. The Reuters and Fox polls that came out yesterday had him at 38 and 40 respectively. Which could be byproduct of Bergdahl deal too.
“I’ve never heard anyone talk about...”
One of the reasons is that Republican leaders don’t really talk about .... They talk about cutting deals.
We already have been since the turkey got re-elected.
The ONE can do no wrong.
Old White Guy is the new N****R.
Very true, as well. Our side has dreadful messaging. The only ones that seem to do it right are Ted Cruz and the NRA. The rest are dreadful.
My thinking was in line with the power of the media/entertainment/education effect on public discussion. The things that are clearly important don't make it into conversation because the typical American barely hears of them, or hears a one-sided version.
Your point is quite valid that our side does a terrible job getting it out. We have two strikes against us with the media environment, but the third strike is self-imposed.
The electorate is numb to the continuous barrage of scandals.
I used to shake my head in disbelief every week or so during Bush....now it’s a near daily event.
“Actually, the core Obama voters & Democrats are hopeless. The majority of the country doesnt approve.”
Correct. The Marxist cannot drop below 43% approval. That’s a very solid, concrete and reinforced floor. All future bad news will have no effect on that 43% — they will love and worship him, regardless.
“Honestly, this country is hopeless.”............
Its not the “entire” country that is hopeless, its the dumb asses that voted odumbo in the second time, its the media that continues to carry his water, its the congress that fails to challenge him, its not the entire country but damn close to it.
They just don't make journalists anymore, period.
“..........Nothing will change until unionization of Federal and State employees is ended, IMO.”
Agree. One of the earliest missions in the Left’s assault on America was to establish control, and increase the number of government employees through unionization controlled by them. The rest was history.
It’s the Leftist bureaucracies I’ve been railing about for seemingly ever that control the departments ie; FDA, DE, DOE, HHS, etc. that have been added to the executive division over the many years. Politicians come, and go, but bureaucrats are a constant, and have learned how to control the system.
Yep, and they are eating away at their brains.
The rest of the world knows it too. The whole refugee dumping going on down at our southern border attests to that.
I’ve always contended that Barry could axe murder his family and still come out smelling like a rose among his lobotomized constituents.
Make that Haiti, and I'd agree with you.
The reason his numbers didn’t drop is because I think it is settled. Those who love the puke support him and those of us who despise the creep, are against him. So the numbers are set. Few of those who love him are going to turn on him now.
Obama lies and more Americans are dying. From Izzlamic murdering thugs, to the pukes in the VA.
The reason is simple.
For most people, they have no connection to a VA hospital. Even many vets, who have been avoiding the VA for decades (and I count many family members who could have gone, but chose not to).
In short, it isn’t “real” to the majority of people
Obama’s up against a floor of ignorance. He cannot go lower until those people move higher in their thinking.
