About that Wall Street Journal poll: Is the public saying Obama's presidency is over?
Washington Examiner ^ | June 18, 2014 | T. Becket Adams

Posted on 06/18/2014 10:02:31 AM PDT by Cheerio

President Obama's approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News.

In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president.

The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News' Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be over.

What ‘Presidency’?

He’s never been a President!

He’s been a smug, malicious, anti-American, self-loathing Liberal creep ... but NOT a President!

Obama doesn’t care what people think or who he hurts, including Democrats. Obama will become more determined and obstinate.

We haven’t seen anything yet.

Now, the consensus is forming that Obama is incompetent and a failure. Isn’t it time for all the conservatives who have been certain that the USA is doomed to come home and work toward the future? Isn’t it time to stop flirting with Putinism and its ersatz situational conservatism. Stand tall. We can return to power and influence and restore the nation we love.

It’s one thing to disagree with someone’s politics, it’s another thing to diagnose them as incompetent. America has voted and Obama is incompetent.

The poll is bullish*t. Conveniently no plurality of opinion that Obama is the obvious failure (in terms of what he promised) that he is.

Of course Obama doesn't give a crap what we think of him or his presidency. He's on a mission to destroy us.

The founders installed IMPEACHMENT for this very purpose - the system is broke when you have a House that won't touch it and a Senate that has been taken over by the Marxists along with the Article 2 Exec.

The poll is not “bull-crap”; it’s spot on accurate to the views of those people who were polled. Go cry about it somewhere else.

Obama will be over when the senate has 61 Republicans.

That’s right.
He will get away with as much as he’s allowed to get away with.

His narcissism controls his actions. He’s too narcissistic to realize that he’s expendable and some powerful people might decide to do just that. Then he becomes a martyr, the scandals go away and they continue with their agenda.

But the problem is he is president, and his presidency is far from over.

Far, far from over.

I don't care that the Obama run Senate will not remove him - force the media to cover the introduction of the Articles of Impeachment. What I am unclear on is whether Reid can just say "hey we are not even going to show up for this charade". IMHO if he tried that, the informed liberal public (on our form of government) may even get a glimpse into the illegality of this Marxist. Today he strips the Washington Redskins of their PRIVATE PROPERTY with no compensation simply because he doesn't like the name. This is the action of a TYRANT.

Bingo. He will continue to succeed as long as our so-called "leaders" refuse to accept that simple truth.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

I have long feared the period after the 2014 elections. But I think now that Obama doesn’t care about the 2014 elections. That is, he’s not waiting until November to pull the trigger. He’s facilitating an invasion of murderers, rapists, drug cartels, and pro-abortion voters. (With the FULL support of the Catholic bishops and “Christian” churches.) He’s replenishing Al Qaeda with personnel, and is determined to empty Gitmo—at least until he starts sending Tea Partiers there. Obama’s plan to hand the entire M.E. to the Muslim Brotherhood is a complete success. All that remains is for Obama’s friends to march through Israel, beheading, gassing, and crucifying.

Here is an interesting comparison of two Dictators when losing became obvious and 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.

For Hitler, The Final Solution was for the destruction of the Jewish population.

For Obama, the Final Solution was for the destruction of the core values of America.

Hitler had his “Peace in our Time” Neville Chamberlain.

Obama had and still has his rubber-stamp, Speaker Boehner.

What percentage of the people being polled know what the word “competent” means? Based upon the high percentage of polling suggesting he is incompetent (and we know that he is severely incompetent), the educated guess and the smart money says that those who were polled know exactly what it means.
