Skip to comments.Obama Hits Record High Disapproval as Presidency Staggers Under Weight of Scandals, Iraq Failure
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 Obamas approval-disapproval released Sunday, June 15 has his disapproval hitting 55%, tying the record high Gallup disapproval set in late August 2011.
Obamas approval rating is at 40% putting him underwater by a remarkable 15 points.
Obamas approval-disapproval has trended downward quickly from just two days ago on June 13 when he stood at 43% approval to 51% disapprovalan 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 Obamas anarchy on the southern border and the fallout from the deadly VA scandal and Obamas 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 Obamas support.
Just last week, Gallup announced that it was expected Obamas 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.
Yeah, but at some point they’ll find out who their REAL father is.
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.
They are and always have been props. They could care less at this point.
I thought one of his daughters went with them,
I can understand the others disappointment
at not being able to caddy.
Add mocked, laughed at, and isolated from the rest of us.
We are seeing crisis overload and something is going to break.
I still think there was a lot of hanky panky.
Don’t you remember all the pictures from the wedding with Michelle and the pictures of 0bama holding his baby girls? I remember seeing ..........................................
Come to think of it they both resemble Moochelle but not the Obamanation.
Don't ask me what I can do for my country, ask what's in it for me!
Remarkable that it isn't 100%. This country is in serious trouble.
Nah, “had me the phone and my pen. I have some more EOs to push through.”
“Yeah, but at some point theyll find out who their REAL father is.”
I’ll take “who is Web Hubble?” for 100, Alex.
someone said the daughter got there separately from her parents.
How easy it is when money (your own) isn’t an issue.
The older daughter resembles his side of the family - she has a long face with big jaw. IMO
I once told a friend the country could not survive a second fool on the hill term. He is now in Spain telling me I was correct and left early.
The turkey baster ain't tellin'
Anyone who voted for O in 2012 should be either expatriated, committed to an institution for the criminally insane, or made to serve breakfast in bed to Michelle Obama promptly at 5.58am five days a week, while dressed as a donkey (party mascot). You are to NEVER make eye contact with the first lady.
Obama needs to push Global Warning more to get those numbers back up , LOL
Wow.... this is gonna hurt Democrats who have to face voters in the Midterm Elections; big-time.
You may be right. I really haven't studied them.
You’re right. Sasha did not make the trip.
Chelsea now knows that her Dad is a whore hound and Mom is a butch lesbo.
Obama’s daughters will know Daddy is a wrump wrangler and Mom, a hairy Wookie.
“Honor is the gift a man gives himself.” RRM
The prospects ahead are not something to laugh at. But, I had to laugh. LOL!
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.
Malia is a beautiful young woman.
After a quarter of century of the constant turmoil and drama from the grifters from Hope, the American
people have had it with the House of Clinton. Shes an old hag and hes a limp corndog.
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.
The only thing I want to make sure of is that he stays tied to his party and fellow Democrats, so he can drag them all down this November.
‘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.
Does not matter. He has the media propagandists and the 47 percent; why should he worry?
He doesn’t care. He’s forcing this country to submit to more and more invasive socialism. By the time he’s out of office, he’ll be chuckling.
Does not matter. He has the media propagandists and the 47 percent; why should he worry?
And the GOP is effete.
“Remarkable that it isn’t 100%. This country is in serious trouble.”
We’re still circling the drain, the serious trouble has yet to start.
(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 dont 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 Landrieus 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 youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.
Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
DEMS VOTED FOR ACA IN UNISON---LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE
Running -20 at Rasmussen.
Real Clear Politics had Obama’s record low on Dec. 2, 2013. I think that was the peak of the IRS scandal reporting before the news switched to the Trayvon Martin trial 24/7.
A couple hours after my report at Gateway Pundit the White House anonymously put out the word that Malia was “driven” to meet her parents in Rancho Mirage Friday night.
So we have 40% of unredeemable lunatics who still approve of this man. This tells a lot about the nation and direction we are heading. A nation Jay-X, -Y, and -Z’s!
God Help us all.
