Obama's Job Approval Drops Below Carter's
US News ^ | 11-29-11 | US NEws

Posted on 11/29/2011 10:43:01 AM PST by tcrlaf

President Obama's slow ride down Gallup's daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history.

Since March, Obama's job approval rating has hovered above Carter's, considered among the 20th century's worst presidents, but today Obama's punctured Carter's dismal job approval line. On their comparison chart, Gallup put Obama's job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter's 51 percent.

I actually dont think it’s the media that killed the conservative candidates. We did it. Because conservatives are looking to hard for a perfect candidate that doesnt exist in this field.

It’s not the media’s fault a true, electable conservative didnt even throw their hat in the ring. Instead we all tried to mold the current field to be conservative. And in the end we knocked out everyone. Now Romney has an easy path. Notice how he’s layed low for most of the summer and fall? He knew the conservatives will tear each other apart.

Well, voting in folks who are willing to install the Left’s agenda for them sure hasn’t moved mountains for us.

Our only course of action, is to nominate good people. If we can’t do that, then toss in the towel. It makes little difference who we vote in.

Note: An agreement was made between Republicans and Democrats that the military would take a hard hit if the committee couldn’t agree to cuts.

The Left got just what they wanted all along. The Republicans agreed to it in advance.

One thing is certain, if we continue to play the game as we have been, this nation is done.

Remember the misery index? It was invented while Carter was president. Well, here are a few tidbits of information.

The misery index when Carter started was 12.72 and 19.72 when he left for a +7. The average month during Carter's reign was 16.26.

The misery index when Obama started was 7.83 and currently is 12.53, or +4.7. The average month during Obama's reignis 10.72.

The misery index when GW Bush started was 7.93 and 7.39 when he left for a -.54. The average month during Bush's reign was 8.11.

BTW, Reagan entered with a 19.33 and exited with a 9.72 for a whopping -9.61, the best turnaround in modern history.

.I will not throw my vote away by voting for Romney. Period. And I’m not the only one. THAT is the reality.

A vote for anyone except someone who has the possibility of actually pushing Obama out of office is throwing away your vote. Period. Using caps doesn't make your fiction truth.

let the moderate RINO get trounced in the election by the liberals (a minority in the country). Then maybe the elites will understand that we wont choose to go over the cliff slower, but we want to change directions.

This is a wish that has nothing to do with reality.

The Tea Party got candidates elected, Palin's popularity is undeniable, the most recognizable Republican voices in America are all conservative--none of this has gotten us a great conservative in the race.

Letting Romney lose, though, will result in the RNC suddenly waking up and saying 'Oh WOW! We should push CONSERVATIVES!"

When have these 'sit at home on election day' messages ever actually achieved conservative goals?

If Romney loses, the RNC will think 'Well, it's hard to defeat a sitting president,' or, worse, 'Them damn conservatives can't be counted on, why should we support them?"

If you were in charge of the RNC, and the country clubbers stayed home and led to your conservative candidate losing, would YOU suddenly say "Hey, I'd better get out there looking for good country club Republicans?"

Your comment discounts everything you know about human nature, if you think about it.

I've never seen these kinds of messages do a thing. Pushing hard for a conservative candidate, and then pushing for whoever the general candidate is and telling him 'We expect this, this and this from you' gives them a reason to want to please.

Sitting at home makes you invisible on election day. Which would make Obama happier--you voting for whoever opposes him, or you staying home?

“...Yeah, that will teach the elites a lesson....”

It taught most of the country a lesson, too: and that lesson is - LISTEN when socialists/communists tell you what they are going to do to you. They actually do MEAN it.

We’re seeing what happens when we let “RINO moderates” - “traitors” for simplicity’ sake - run and control our party.

A liberal is a liberal, whether it has an “R” or a “D” or an “I” after it’s name. And it is the enemy. Always, and without exception.

If they get their way, ultimately, they will attempt to kill us all to create their Utopian wet dream world.

It’s what they do.

And for the GOP to do and say nothing, well, I despise cowardice...ESPECIALLY when so much is at stake.

I share your loathing of the RNC, and many of the national and state level Republicans. They are selling our nation out as sure as any Democrat is.

We are on the verge of losing this nation, and here we are with our team playing patti-cake with Leftists trying to take Cain down.

I didn't say we should sit at home, I said I am not voting for Romney - no way, no how. And 'what makes Obama happy' - I don't think he could be happier than having an 'R' in the White House that believes in the same things he does. At least Obama is clueless. Mitt, on the other hand, has leadership skills and such. I fear the damage he could 'reach across the aisle' and create...

No, it isn’t. Voting for a RINO in order to beat Obama is throwing away your vote. Go peddle your “Just Win”-ism to someone who’s dumb enough to buy it. If Mitt Romney was running against Satan himself, I still wouldn’t give him the time of day.

D-1, I think they look at it as a “game”. A power game, where no matter who wins, both sides win. One side wants to take us to communist hell on the express elevator, and the other side wants the slow, riverboat ride. But ultimately, the destination is the same.

Every Republican? No, of course not. Every Dem? No, again, I still do believe there are some sane folks over there, but their voices are totally drowned out and squashed.

I’m not a class warfare guy, but for the most part the people that run both of these parties are very wealthy - they have what I call “F-You Money”. They do what they want, they go where they want, and they can live any way they want. And they don’t give a DAMN about what we say or think of them, ultimately.

They no longer believe themselves to be Public Servants. They see themselves as our Supervisors now, above us...separate to and unequal from us.

But they’re not the folks who do the living and the dying down here on the ordinary level like the rest of us.

They’re not touched personally by the economy that they themselves helped to f*** up with their stupid unworkable ideas and half-baked Ponzi schemes.

They’re not touched personally when gasoline goes up to 5 dollars a gallon, and your gas credit cards get maxed out and shutdown because you drive 70 miles a day to/from work.

They’re not touched personally when food prices triple in as many months, and you have three, four, five kids to feed and clothe.

They’re not touched when home prices fall through the floor, and that house you bought as an investment, your BIGGEST investment, is now worth less than you paid for it.

They’re not part of US. Neither side.

And when us little guys, the dumbasses as they see us, when we occasionally have the temerity - and throw a “temper tantrum” as one of their own derisively put it - to try to elect one of US, like a Herman Cain, or a Sarah Palin, BOTH sides turn their snotty, condescending smiles into sneering fangs-bared rage at us for daring to think that we ever actually had a say in how OUR OWN government should work.

Loathing? That word doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface for what I feel for these scumbags.

We weren’t born to serve their needs. God made us for a purpose, His purposes, and I am sick and tired of being used, manipulated, coddled, bullied, threatened, coerced, cajoled and otherwise bullsh*tted into serving their political game needs.

I’m not the best Christian man you’ll ever talk to...I’m not even a “good” Christian man...I’m just an American Citizen, a working slob with too many bills, too little money, a whole lot of love for my Country, my heritage, and my people, and a whole lot of anger over what this political class - BOTH SIDES - whom we gave a solemn trust to, to manage the wealth and prosperity of our Nation, did to us. One side did it deliberately, and the other side helped them do it by plain cowardice.

This election, I’m not going to vote for the lesser-of-two- evils “presumptive nominee” frontrunner RINO, or sit out and let the Communist assh*le waltz to victory.

On Election Day, I’m going to say a prayer, and listen for whatever still, small voice God decides to send my way, if He decides to do so at all, and vote based on who I believe to be the best person to start the long, painful process of undoing what these rotten, lousy scoundrels have done to my country.

I’ll write in that candidate’s name if he/she doesn’t happen to be “the one”.

It’s already out of my hands to begin with, but I WILL have my vote.

Because I still believe in WE THE PEOPLE. And one way or another, painfully or peacefully, WE THE PEOPLE WILL have our say, eventually.

Hale, there are basically two different mind-sets IMO.

One says basically what you have and contemplates voting for the lesser of two evils for the rest of their life, by which time they fully expect to see this nation even further beyond hope than it is now.

One says basically what you have and contemplates allowing the Left to take this nation down quick and dirty, so we can get on with rebuilding. Hell, we’re going to get there anyway.

After a lot of thought and wrestling with what to do, I’m thinking the later group may be the best way to go.

I’m tired of allowing the Republican elites to think they can screw us on turn at a time over the next fifty years.

When the fall comes, they’ll be hurt. You can count on it. At least I’ll get some comfort knowing that.

Well said. If it comes down to it, and it looks like it will, I will again hold my nose and reluctantly vote for the 'R' candidate instead of BHO. In a perfect world, I wouldn't have to. But the world, and especially politicians, are far from perfect.

Electing more Conservatives to Congress can help keep any RINO in check.

Holy crap! I never realized how Nixon also sucked when he was in charge of the economy. Carter’s average was the highest but at least it jumped “only” 54%. When RMN took office the MI was 7.80. When he left in August 1974 it was 17.01, a 118% increase.
