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.
