Obama Hits Record High Disapproval as Presidency Staggers Under Weight of Scandals, Iraq Failure
The Gateway Pundit ^ | Sunday, June 15, 2014 | Kristinn Taylor

Posted on 06/15/2014 3:00:32 PM PDT by kristinn

President Barack Obama is taking a long Fathers Day weekend vacation in California as his administration founders under the weight of accumulating damage from myriad scandals, an un-stemmed flood of illegal alien children on the U.S. southern border and the near collapse of Iraq.

The Gallup poll three day average of Obama’s approval-disapproval released Sunday, June 15 has his disapproval hitting 55%, tying the record high Gallup disapproval set in late August 2011.

Obama’s approval rating is at 40% putting him underwater by a remarkable 15 points.

Obama’s approval-disapproval has trended downward quickly from just two days ago on June 13 when he stood at 43% approval to 51% disapproval–an 8 point spread.

Heading in to this weekend Iraq was in danger of being overrun by the Sunni terrorist group ISIS; the IRS informed the House Friday afternoon that it had allegedly lost two years of emails by IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner; U.S. Border Patrol agents were sounding the alarm about Obama’s anarchy on the southern border and the fallout from the deadly VA scandal and Obama’s trade with the Taliban of five senior terrorists for the Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl were till reverberating. The news media, as can be expected, is ignoring this latest collapse in Obama’s support.

Just last week, Gallup announced that it was expected Obama’s support would stay steady at 44% for the month of June.

What a nasty man. It’s father’s day and he chose this golfing and campaigning tour instead of being with his daughters. They won’t forget.

. . . his disapproval hitting 55%, tying the record high Gallup disapproval set in late August 2011.

Which, ironically, simply goes to show how meaningless this latest number is. Recall the election Obama lost shortly after the August 2011 survey? Neither does anybody else.

Anyone who voted for him in 2008 deserves ridicule.

Anyone who voted for him in 2012 deserves contempt.

Obama's 40% "approval" rating shows exactly what is wrong with America these days. Too many freeloaders who care more about freebies and government handouts than they do about freedom and America. It's a disgrace. For the first time in my adult life, I'm embarrassed and ashamed of my country.

Don't ask me what I can do for my country, ask what's in it for me!

There was a lot of election fraud in ‘12. It’s never been systematically investigated or quantified, so no one can say exactly how great or crucial an impact it had on the outcome.

Oh sure. With their 'no limit, top of the ritz' lifestyle I don't think they are spending a second obsessing about where their Dad is.

For all you and I know, their 'happiness' stems from NOT being around him.

0bama’s destruction of America is not over, it is just beginning.

He has an open door to accelerate his plans to undermine our Constitution.

Everything that he has done so far is merely a test of what he can get away with.

Which so far, is everything.

The next phase will be social unrest on a scale not seen since the riots of the 1960’s. I doesn’t matter to him who is rioting in the streets, but I suspect he would like to provoke so called “right-wing” types into a shoot-out.

Social unrest from either camp on a massive scale would allow 0bama to suspend our constitution as a means to remain in power, “for the greater good”, of course.

If the conservatives refuse to engage him, he will provoke/empower others to do his dirty work.

This President is not finished with his aim to “transform” our country.

‘For all you and I know, their ‘happiness’ stems from NOT being around him.’

Good point. One thing we know: Malignant Narcissists are no fun to be around. This is exponentially true if they’d rather be somewhere else, but have instead been pressured into spending time with a person or persons under the guise of a duty/obligation. They can be sheer misery under those circumstances.

I thought Malia was going, but it seems that might have changed.

The Obamas "will spend Father's Day in Palm Springs with their daughter, Malia," Earnest said. "Sasha did not make the trip this weekend."

President Barack Obama is taking a long Fathers Day weekend vacation in California this weekend with wife Michelle but not their daughters.

Obama is tripping over himself, scared-stiff Repubs are gaining. He's illegally using govt grants and govt personnel to prop up lockstepping Dems---as a Democrat-controlled Senate slips from his desperate grasp.

(Cackle) Odd that Obama is sending surrogates into the hustings? He, himself is not campaigning for vulnerable Dems. Obama's headlining so many Democrat fund-raisers---but there's so few Obama stops on the Democrats' campaign trail (snicker).

Obama seems unusually toxic this election season because his approach to governing has been to shove all of his mindless left-wing nonsense down the throats of Americans.

His usual MO is to make excuses and try to blame Republicans when the policies don’t work out.......as he and his Democrat rubber stampers sap-happily said they would.

==========================================

OBAMA CAN'T EXPLAIN THIS ATROCITY How $4.3 billion to Louisianna Senator Landrieu was attached to the Obamacare bill, and how Obama and Reid failed to catch and fix it, is yet another indictment of the Obamacare atrocity. The payoff to Landrieu should be investigated as an indication of how EVERY Democrat came to vote for Obamacare.

===============================================

BACKSTORY In the fall of 2009, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was trying to get the necessary 60 Dimocrat votes to pass the Affordable Care Act. He needed every Dim on board, which gave waffling senators a great deal of leverage. In Landrieu's case, she connivingly saw that selling her aye vote could get her maybe $200 million federal dollars. Obama complied--- Reid chalked up another vote for Obamacare---and the $4.3 Landrieu giveaway was attached to the Obamacare bill.

<><> Where'd the money go?

THE "Louisisana Purchase" PAPER TRAIL IS HUGE Sen Landrieu (Scumocrat-LA) sold her aye vote in what Forbes Magazine dubbed "The 'Louisiana Purchase" that included a massive $4.3 Billion to Landrieu.

FORBES REPORTED the Democrats’ nailed Landrieu’s support for Obamacare w/ a greenback bribe. Landrieu, critics believe, pledged her vote in exchange for some $200 million more additional federal funds for Louisiana. Except that, due to a drafting error, the law ended up giving Louisiana $4.3 billion: more than twenty times the assigned amount. MORE HERE http://www.forbes.com/fdc/welcome_mjx.shtml

===============================================

JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO 2014-2016 VOTERS As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act:

QUOTING OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
