Chuck Todd on Obama Poll Numbers: Public Is Saying ‘Your Presidency Is Over’
Mediaite ^ | June 18, 2014 | by Evan McMurry

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 Obama’s 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. That’s one of those things, you’re sitting at the White House going, ‘Wow.’”

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.

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.

Socialist Canada votes for pipeline WORK to Canada’s 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.

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".

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.

That is because the public is finally starting to wake up to the fact that bammy is an idiot, an ideological idiot. Caught a few seconds of him on the news last night - about all I can stand. He was blabbering through something or other, "... going to make this a priority for the remainder of my term..." or some such BS. So how many things has he claimed are priorities? Government transparency, the economy, jobs, national security, getting to the bottom of Bengazi, IRS and other scandals, income inequality, environment, globull warming, energy, veterans, etc.

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.

NBC/WSJ poll finds 54% have no confidence in Obama’s leadership

Hotair ^ | 06/18/2014 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 6/18/2014 6:39:33 AM by SeekAndFind

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 Obama’s leadership:

The percentage of Americans approving of President Barack Obama’s 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.

What’s more, by a 44 percent-to-30 percent margin, Americans disagree with the Obama administration’s decision to secure the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five imprisoned Taliban fighters.

Obama’s 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 it’s 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 predecessor’s presidency. Post-Katrina Bush had a 53/46 rating for competency, while it’s an even split at 50/50 for Obama. Thirty-one percent say Obama isn’t competent at all, compared to 24% for Bush in the same time frame, and that’s a ten-point increase for Obama from last June.

That last metric isn’t an anomaly. Only 15% believe that Obama’s 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 Obama’s dishonesty rounding out the top five. Small wonder, then, that only 42% of respondents think Obama can still lead this nation, while 54% reject Obama’s leadership.

As Chuck Todd tells Morning Joe, “This is the public saying your presidency is over”:

I’d disagree with Chuck on what this means for Democrats, though. While it’s true that the Congressional polling isn’t 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 won’t be choosing Democrats for that mission.

Interesting comparison of two Dictators when losing became inevitable:

* Hitler’s Fast tracking of Death Camps and

* Obama’s Fast flooding of Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico.

IMHO: both Dictators saw their fast actions efforts as THE FINAL SOLUTION.
