FOX News ^ | July 23, 2014

Has the Obama administration competently and effectively managed the government? A Fox News poll released Wednesday finds a majority of American voters says no -- including about a third of Democrats.

A 58-percent majority says the White House has not been competent at managing the federal government. Some 32 percent of Democrats join 67 percent of independents and 84 percent of Republicans in holding that view.

Only 58%?

This means there is still a boatload of lo-fo voters who still worship the driveler-in-chief.

This country has been dumbed down.

“That meams 42% are stoopid, ignorant and uninformed.”

Not necessarily. How many of thoses people do you think genuinely believe Obama Chooses to do the wrong/immoral thing?

Most of us free republic members seem to believe that he is incompetent because He has no history of excursive leadership, upon which to say he can do the job competently. I suspect of many of us still believe he can but chooses not to, and thus are members of that 42%.

It is difficult to tell whether a man is genuinely incompetent or willfully negligent.

It also means that 10% of people know he is incompetent and voted for him anyway.

No it doesnt, this is a case of simple set theory.

58% of american believe Obama is an incompetent executive. That leaves 42% that eyther beleive Obama chooses to do his job poorly(as many Free Republic members still believe) or that Obama does know how to do his job and just regulatory gets results that contradict even his own claims for “insert excuse here”.

The only reason I am obliged to believe Obama is incompetent is because:
1: Some of his failures have bit him in the ass despite the best effort of his adoring fans in the Press to cover them up.
2: Obama has never in his life demonstrated that he does have the capability to manage an organization as an chief executive competently. So we cannot in fairness say with all certainly that he is deliberately screwing up his job.

“It also means that 10% of people know he is incompetent and voted for him anyway.”

Also not necessarily true, as we have no way of knowing that this was their opinion before voting for him. Althou based upon what we know it should have been.

10% answered “no opinion”

15% answered “Stop buggin’ me, I'm tryin’ to play a video game!”

5% were running late to their American Communist/Global Warming Alarmist/Pro Gun Control meetings....

12% answered “banana”

Obama has never had the best interests of this country in mind, in fact just the opposite. I would have thought at least 75% of the people would have realized this by now.

Sad that 42% think Obama is OK. Does not say much positive about America’s voters. The corrupt education system has done a great job in dumbing down our citizens.

I often listen to Brian Kilmeade's radio show when I'm working in the morning. He does a pretty good show for that time of day. Only last week did he finally admit that it looks like Obama is not incompetent, but actually bent on destruction.

Some people - including some right-leaning people - can't accept that Americans have twice elected a president that hates the United States and is intent on ruination. They are either terrified to allow themselves to realize what that means, or simply deny that any president could possibly feel that way.

Sadly they are waking up about two years too late.

then 58% are blind to the real reason why obozo was put in the WH. obozo is competent in one respect, he is succeeding in his primary mission of transforming the US and thus far, doing it with no concern of ever being held to account. it is painfully obvious that he could care less about the well being of this country and that requires no competence at all.

Why suggest incompetence when malice and evil intent is in clear view?

He's not incompetent...he's evil.

He's been incredibly effective at damaging America.

He has been the BEST anti-American President ever!

At least Jimmy Carter was just an idiot.

Obama knows precisely what he is doing to destroy our country.

That said, America as an idea is greater than Obama...and it will endure long after Obama is distant history.

That said, Obama will be a footnote in the encyclopedia of racism. He was the only race baiter to ever be elected president.

And hopefully, he will be the last.

Obama is a liar of the first order.

Not just a bad president...an anti-American president.

He represents all that America stands against.

He will go down in history...but history will not be kind to him.

I really have never understood why the people put so much faith in the Feds. For over 40 years I have watched as they have taken more and more of our earnings and used it to both tighten the regulatory noose and spent it on giveaway programs that were it put to a vote, Americans would never have approved.

I think that the WWII generation were a lot of the cause of this because of the blind faith they had in FDR and the regimentation of both the civilian and military sides of our people. I saw it as a teenager and have known since I was 16 that these times were coming.

I have watched Kilmeade on Fox and always thought he was not the sharpest knife in the drawer, if he can see it Obama’s support is getting very shallow. This cuts both ways, it will make Obama move ever faster to assure our destruction, or it will make him even more ineffective and the push back swifter.

Some will never admit the truth, they have invested to much faith in this traitor, some as you said are terrified. Terrified of losing their cushy lifestyle or terrified of death? Kiss the lifestyle goodbye, it is only going to get harder and harder to maintain. The fear of death is cowardice and guilt, a fear of what comes next because of the way they have lived their lives. Our only answer to that fear is to make amends to God and live without fear of the judgement. Death comes to all, we can stand as men, or whine on the way out like children.
