Posted on 07/02/2014 6:24:20 PM PDT by markomalley
Fox News panelists A.B. Stoddard and Steve Hayes argued Wednesday that Obama brought on his plummeting approval ratings by giving Americans the impression that he has given up on his job.
In a new Quinnipiac poll, Obama came in first as the worst president since World War II.
The president is giving Americans the sense that, as he gives up on Congress, hes kind of giving up on his job, The Hills Stoddard said. They know hes bolting from the building to go to Starbucks and Chipotle. Hes getting bored in the cocoon, hes planning his post-presidency.
Free Beacon editor Matthew Continetti made this argument several weeks ago, writing, I find nothing paradoxical about Obamas recent pattern of behavior, nothing mysterious about the golfing, partying, traveling. It is quite obvious: Obama has given up.
And, like Continetti, Stoddard notes Obamas new habit of having lots of dinner parties where he doesnt talk about policy or politics, but the NBA playoffsanything but his job.
Thats really troublesome for the American people, Stoddard concluded, not only because of all the problems we have, but because were with him for another more than two years.
The Weekly Standards Steve Hayes concurred, adding, It is largely because of the presidents flippant attitude towards the presidency. So sue mewhat kind of a president would make that argument? And where he had been buoyed, I think, by the fact that people liked him or people wanted him to succeed, despite the fact that they might have had some questions about his policies, that no longer exists, because the president is behaving the way that hes behaving.
Charles Krauthammer said that Americans are just now realizing that campaigning is what Obama does best, and That could be his only great competenceto campaign, to make speeches. As a result, He gave people hope, but he doesnt know how to govern.
Paging Claude Rains
Obama has got to know he’s been a lousy President,so he thinks he should try being dictator.
Only because the US is populated by historical illiterates that don't realize he is the worst President in HISTORY.
". . . but he doesnt know how to govern.
Thank God for that, I guess.
Maybe he will get so bored with his job, he will resign....one can hope...
Heck, he can keep AF1 until Jan 17 th 2017 as part the the deal....
POTUS Biden can take AMTRAK...
Barack Hussein Ubama NEVER was qualified to be the POTUS. We had to lower our standards into the sewer to allow him and his regime into Washington. Incompetent kiddie morons.
I really think we should offer him $100 m and a beachfront mansion anywhere in the world with a 1 way ticket to get there in return for his resignation; somebody already told me he’s got billions stashed so my offer is small potatoes.
I guess if he isn't governing, some one else is. And whoever that is, he's not our friend.
Hey, if he’d just resign, then we’d have President Joe. And if Joe would resign (which he’d probably do after a week or so), then we’d up with President Boner. Brings a tear to the eye, don’t it?
But Boner had better hold up, cuz Patrick Leahy is next, and Kerry, Holder, and Hagel are in the top 10.
Baraq’s agent has already sparked a bidding war for his services after Jan 2017.
MSNBC and ISIS.
Giving up on his job? This guy is going full blast -- I can't believe people don't see it.
Ah, such a great movie. I watched it on DVD a couple nights ago. For the xxxxth time.
I think the poll specifically said “since World War II.
I mentioned that Nixon is more respected than Obama to a liberal woman today. She turned beet red and just glared at me. LOL
Those that helped into power and perfected vote fraud in 2012 do not want him to govern. His job is to read a teleprompter and fundraise.
He is sympathetic to the godless marxists so he won't get in their way because he is one of them.
And too many of our citizenry are apathetic or fundamentally wrong in their thinking.
When will these cowardly talking heads speak the truth, that Obama’s agenda is to turn this country into a cesspool? They know it but refuse to say it since it might result in the loss of their high paying jobs. Is looking out for number one more important than the fate of our country?
Several Detroit businessman did this for Kwame Kilpatrick. I like it
“Obama Giving Up on His Job, Doesnt Know How to Govern”
He never did.
He knows who they are? My guess - the Kenyan finds out all about them by watching tonight's local news.
Depends. I maintain that with a sufficiently conservative congress even a President Boner would fall into line.
this is kabuki redirect bullcrap.
he hasn’t’given up. he just wants to do whatever he wants whenever he wants.
this is a total lie/misdirect piece.
Dirty little secret here: we don’t want him to know how to govern. That would be even worse than what we have!
What bothers me about that poll, was the fact that Jimmy Carter was not even listed. I think the Obungler is the worst, and Carter is the second worst.
BO is just used to getting his way. I guess he lied his way thru his youth and no one ever crossed him so it’s hard for him to actually believe that anyone would not want to do what he wants. He’s a spoiled child that stomps his foot when he’s angry goes to his room, slams the door and plots revenge. Not good for our country.
I guess if he has billions stashed, then he truly has been stealing from us or has collected many bribes. Sick. I hope he goes to jail so he can’t enjoy his billions.
granted but this is printed to give us false’hope/make us believe he won’t do stuff so we don’t have to stay on top of it.
it’s’like the tea party is dead articles. wishful thinking /propaganda pieces.
“Hes a spoiled child that stomps his foot when hes angry goes to his room, slams the door and plots revenge. Not good for our country.”
I sincerely believe that the damage he’s done to America, and WILL do in the next two years out of SPITE, will be irreversible.
Pray for America!
Val Jar is a he? Yeah I can see that.
Bammy’s job is flying around on AF1 and golf.
I still cant believe this country elected this punk twice..thank god my parents are dead so they didn’t have to see this.
He hasn’t given up on his job. He has given up as being president of the U.S.,if that was ever his intention in the first place.
Obama can stay on vacation until 2016 for all I care, so long as he leaves his pen and phone at home.
He needs to start drinking heavily and get back into the bath house scene.
I'm actually beginning to believe he was never really even in charge. One thing I know for sure is that no one would ever make themselves look like such an ahole unless they really were one.
He gave people hope? No, he gave idiots hope. But even they didn’t know what it meant.
Remember all those people who worshipped him but when you asked what it was about him they liked, the answer was “He makes good speeches.” Then ask them what he said and you got a blank stare.
And talking heads are in the same boat. Megan Kelley recently discovered Obama and Bill Ayers’ relationship. Wow!
The anti-American degenerate continues his many crimes. The bum should be arrested and imprisoned...and exiled upon release.

I keep on tellin’ y’all; he has no interest in governing, and no “stomach” for it within the framework of the U. S. Constitution.
BHO told us clearly that his overriding purpose is the fundamental transformation of the U. S. A., and he is achieving it in a multitude of ways, both large and obvious and small and subtle.
Even the flooding of the now illusory southern land “border” with untold numbers of young people from central/south America serves his desire to alter, even in a small way, the ethnic/racial composition of the U.S. population. No part of this nation is immune from the transformational fever at the core of his being.
OMG just watched the Megan Kelly show with Bill Ayers HOW IN THE HELL DID OBAMA EVER GET ELECTED???? I am truly SICK to my
stomach these terrorists have taken over our universities one of them is NOW our president!!!!!!
US Public Education System and College Professors since 1960s
How in the HELL do people convicted of bombing and domestic terrorism
spending 20-25 years in prison get hired to teach in our universities!!!!
What the HELL HAS HAPPENED TO OUR COUNTRY!!!!! how could ANY
parent send their kids off to be taught by these slime balls!!!!!!! My GOD
these convict terrorists are TEACHING LAW in our universities JUST
He will not get bored he will executive order this country in to h***
New habit? Hardly. Leaf through his daily schedules for the last five years. There is no difference from this week in 2009 and this same week now.
to be honest, I rather he is partying up, than thinking about new ways of destroying the economy. There still lots of problems that require fixing and theres zero hope that Obama will come up with the correct one, so better he give up than try to “fix” things
Listen, obammy is a muslim and his hope is to one day become the top poohbaah at the U.N.
It’s not too far a stretch when you understand there are what 45 countries that are moosie and will all vote for him when he’s done taking down the U.S.A. and he let’s them in on his little religion secret.
Yup you got that right where Claude Rains when you need him
