Posted on 06/18/2014 6:19:21 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Discussing a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that shows President Barack Obama hitting his lowest foreign policy number in the history of the poll, NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd said on Morning Joe Wednesday morning that the poll reflected the public making a damning verdict about Obamas presidency.
This poll is a disaster for the president, Todd said. You look at the presidency here: lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.
Then on the issue of do you believe you can still lead, and a majority believe not, Todd continued. Essentially the public is saying, Your presidency is over by saying a number like that. 54% saying he no longer has the ability to lead and solve problems. Thats one of those things, youre sitting at the White House going, Wow.

Last night on Megan Kelly’s FOX show Brit Hume said it’s now clear that this Obama Presidency is a FAILED PRESIDENCY.
And of course the numbers are inflated to help Obama!
Well Chuck.... He’s still got a pen and a phone.
F. Chuck was one of Barky’s big cheerleaders...
The same retarded morons who put the Kenyan in the Oval Office are now “ready for Hillary”. You can’t fix stupid when you’re working with a bunch of morons.
Never had it. Never will.....................
We knew that from day one.................
“Thats one of those things, youre sitting at the White House going, Wow...’”
“...time to get that guy off the couch and start the ‘we just caught the Benghazi ringleader’ routine.”
All ther more reason this message is good news.
If he’s lost Chucky, he’s lost the nation......................(Cronkite/LBJ)......
Good news coming from this GOP Establishment Stoolpigeon.
I will never foget how viciously he attacked Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz.
He is a loser.
RUSH said he wished for an Obama had a failed presidency, knowing it would come true.
Too bad Susan Rice isn’t available to give Obama some of her famous advice.
Seems Susan’s busy rewriting her resume for the umpteenth time——as disaster after disaster befalls the Obama admin, Susan makes a mad dash to Staples for more white-out.
Hume is a moderate. At least he attempts to report news.
He clearly is scared of Palin and Cruz.
Odama is a flaming narcissist so I’m on the fence about whether he cares or not about the polls. What I do know is that he has no second thoughts about scorched earth policies and the next two years will be Sherman’s march to the Sea Part II.
Rush said that he hoped Obama failed at what he intended to do to the country.
Seems to me that he accomplished a lot of the destruction that he intended.
is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.
Did Mika have a hissy fit when he said it? Mika would defend Obama if he was caught in bed with a youn boy>
The punk POTUS has been fully stripped down to his base.
I don’t like the man. He was vicious with both Palin and Cruz - unfairly so.
Oh if that were only true.
He is going to inflict A LOT more damage over the next 30 months.
It would take a drug addled mind, a Democrat media mouthpiece, or a Leftist university cretin to think that this country has done anything but spiral into chaos during the disastrous Obama presidency.
It’s going to get worse.
Gas prices will soar due to the situation in Iraq; there are going to be all sorts of problems with the flood of illegals including a big spike in major crimes; the Benghazi, Bowe Bergdahl, IRS, VA and all the other scandals are not going away, then the Clinton machine has already started chipping away at what is left of his reputation; job numbers are in the toilet; food prices are set to soar as well, younger voters are pissed about the loss of privacy from the overreach of the NSA which Snowden will be reminding them about with a potential movie in the making, foreign policy is a complete disaster on every front.....
We all know that sleazy you know what is way down in the polls..the only ones voting for him would be the freeloaders which him and his family are a part of..
Socialist Canada votes for pipeline WORK to Canadas West Coast for their Nation, while Communist Obamanation Democrats choose to regulate to NOT create WORK on the XL Pipeline within the former USA.
Most social engineering articles are about why The Federal Government is not forcing Businesses to give more jobs to people.
IOW, the people view a job as an entitlement that comes from the Federal Government forcing greedy businesses to pay their fair share so that everyone has a living wage.
The Reality is that the Federal Government is the primary restrictor of WORK that is allowed to be done in America.
The Federal Politicians in both parties speak of getting the economy going again while they spend themselves into bankruptcy 60 % into each Fiscal Year.
The Federal politicians in both parties speak of creating jobs, while paying the salaries of Regulators to write Regulations that restrict WORK that is allowed to be done in America.
Without an increase in WORK, there will be no increase in JOBS.
Those who oppose WORK thus oppose JOBS.
Right now, We, The Taxpayers, have 40 % more Federal Government than we can afford.
Right now, We, The People, have two political parties, the GOP-E and the Obama Democrats, that do not put the US Constitution to WORK.
It is time, - - - - time for a change.
Thanks for posting this. It made for some fine, fine morning reading.
DAC21, one thing about Narcissists, they have an abnormal, obsessive, congenital need for outsized admiration. Yes, low polls bother Obama. Mostly, they infuriate him. He’ll blame it on our racism or our stupidity, or both. But in any event, he does care. A lot.
Obama is far more competent than Bush; the difference is that Obama's goal was economic, political, and social destruction. In that area, the last five terrible years have been "mission accomplished".
Duh! When did he EVER have?
This man is an empty suit, inflated by ego and guided by Narcissism.
So? Sure. It is. But so what? He’s still there. The GOP is only 50/50 on capturing the Senate (which won’t mean much). Odds are better than 50/50 that President Hildabeast is on the way AND that the Dims have 60+ in the Senate in 2016.
The polls show that this is relegated to ODimwit. It doesn’t affect the Beast and it doesn’t translate into more Conservative votes.
To steal a line from the FAME movie of the 80s, it’s just masturbation. It may feel good but it doesn’t produce life.
I don't think he knows the meaning of the word priority. It all can't be a priority, then none of it is. All these issues and scandals are important, but they all cannot be a priority. The truth is, they are not priorities, bammy is just lying, trying to make things sound important, trying to sound effective, like he is on top of things. He isn't. His track record is one of abject failures unblemished by any success.
So far, Obama has accomplished EVERYTHING he’s wanted to.... he is fundamentally changing the country....both economically, demographically and edukational-ee. These polls and stats don’t bother him, he is not running for office again...and the REPUBS are too cowardly to do anything about it.
Has? 0 bummer never HAD the ability to lead and solve problems. Dat der cummunitee orgunizer wuz a wutrhless POS from day 1.
Just wait until Chuck realizes (or is told) what a racist he is.
No isn’t over.
He can still do more harm and damage.
Heck, just last week we learn that the Obama border policies are allowing thousands of kids cross.
Every few weeks, we have a new scandal/crisis to divert attention from the last scandal/crisis.
NBC/WSJ poll finds 54% have no confidence in Obamas leadership

The sixth-year blues have caught up to Barack Obama with a vengeance. In an NBC/WSJ poll taken before the meltdown in Iraq, Obama gets his lowest marks ever on foreign policy, where his claim to smart power has evidently reached its expiration date. But the real danger to Obama and to Democrats vying for office in less than five months is the vote of no confidence in Obamas leadership:
The percentage of Americans approving of President Barack Obamas handling of foreign policy issues has dropped to the lowest level of his presidency as he faces multiple overseas challenges, including in Iraq,according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Additionally, the public is evenly split on whether Obama is a competent manager of the federal bureaucracy. And a majority of respondents 54 percent believe the term-limited president is no longer able to lead the country.
Just 37 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, which is an all-time low in the survey, while 57 percent disapprove, an all-time high.
Whats more, by a 44 percent-to-30 percent margin, Americans disagree with the Obama administrations decision to secure the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five imprisoned Taliban fighters.
Obamas job approval comes in at 41/53, the second-worst in the NBC/WSJ series (March 2014′s 41/54 is the nadir). The 37/57 on foreign policy is a record low for Obama, and the economy is nearly at a historical low at 41/54. But its the leadership issues that will make headlines today. In terms of competency, Obama now ranks below Bush at the analogous point in time of his predecessors presidency. Post-Katrina Bush had a 53/46 rating for competency, while its an even split at 50/50 for Obama. Thirty-one percent say Obama isnt competent at all, compared to 24% for Bush in the same time frame, and thats a ten-point increase for Obama from last June.
That last metric isnt an anomaly. Only 15% believe that Obamas performance has improved over the past year, while 41% think it has gotten worse. The top areas in which those respondents believe Obama has gotten worse are ObamaCare, foreign policy and the Taliban 5 swap for Bowe Bergdahl, with the economy and Obamas dishonesty rounding out the top five. Small wonder, then, that only 42% of respondents think Obama can still lead this nation, while 54% reject Obamas leadership.
As Chuck Todd tells Morning Joe, This is the public saying your presidency is over:
Id disagree with Chuck on what this means for Democrats, though. While its true that the Congressional polling isnt a disaster for Democrats, voters will be looking for ways to fill the leadership vacuum and deal with the perceived incompetence and dishonesty at the White House and they wont be choosing Democrats for that mission.
Wait a minute ... are you saying that spending too much time golfing, partying, and vacationing are NOT effective ways to run a country??
We only wish it was over
I totally agree. The worst is yet to come folks.
Interesting comparison of two Dictators when losing became inevitable:
* Hitlers Fast tracking of Death Camps and
* Obamas Fast flooding of Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico.
IMHO: both Dictators saw their fast actions efforts as THE FINAL SOLUTION.
Which is why Obama needs to be removed from office thru impeachment proceedings before our country is forever weakened.
You ain't seen nothing yet.
The Obama regime will spend their final two years in scorched earth mode, aided by a feckless GOP, a stacked judiciary, and a dumbed down citizenry.
Exactly right. That’s why he’s carefree and playing golf. Just another half day at the office for him whlle the world catches fire. Yep, everything is going perfectly to plan.
