    News Max ^ | 02 Jul 2014 | Quinnipiac Poll: Reagan Best President Since World War II, Obama the Worst
    President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, and the United States would have been better off if his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, had won the election in 2012, a new Quinnipiac University national poll released today reveals. The best president? Ronald Reagan. "Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

    A majority of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama's handling of the widening crisis in Iraq – and overall dissatisfaction with his foreign policy agenda has shot up among both Republicans and Democrats, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll. Fifty-two percent of Americans say they don't like how Obama is dealing with the violence in Iraq; just 37 percent approve, the poll showed. "I voted for him because he said, 'Give me four more years and I will fix everything,' but nothing is being fixed," Michelle Roberts, 34, a Democrat from Salem, Mass., told The New York...

The poll, the findings of which were released Saturday, show former President Bill Clinton has the highest favorability of all living former and current U.S. presidents, with 64 percent favorable opinion and 34 percent unfavorable.

    ( - Fifty-one percent of the Americans who responded to a Gallup poll conducted June 5-8 said that they do not believe the phrase “is honest and trustworthy” applies to President Barack Obama. Gallup has asked Americans this question eight times over the last six years: “Thinking about the following characteristics and qualities, please say whether you think each applies or doesn't apply to Barack Obama. How about: Is honest and trustworthy.”

    The Cable - Foreign Policy ^ | JUNE 10, 2014 | JOHN HUDSON
    Facing growing skepticism on Capitol Hill about its decision to swap five Taliban prisoners for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the White House told lawmakers at a classified briefing late Monday night that some of the freed militants were political figures, not hardened soldiers, according to lawmakers who attended the session. In the past several days, the administration has rolled out a number of reasons to justify swapping Bergdahl, a potential deserter, for the five Taliban officials. White House officials said they had concerns about Berdgahl's health, felt an obligation to never leave a soldier on the battlefield, and feared the militants...

    A veteran Army soldier who helped rescue Pfc. Jessica Lynch at the beginning of the Iraq War was killed in action in Afghanistan as the U.S. effort there winds down. Command Sgt. Maj. Martin R. Barreras, 49, of Tuscon, Ariz., died May 13 after being wounded by small arms fire a week earlier in Herat province in western Afghanistan, the Pentagon said. He was the top enlisted soldier of 2nd Battalion, 5th Infantry, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, out of Fort Bliss, Texas. Barreras had already been wounded in combat several times over multiple tours to both Iraq...

    More workers hired to process Obamacare applications are revealing how they've been filling their days sleeping, playing board games, reading, or fighting with each other on many days when there was little or no work. "I walk out every day feeling as if I have contributed nothing," a worker from the London, Ky., Serco facility told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday. A former worker at a processing center in Wentzville, Mo., processing facility, Lavonne Takatz, said she and other workers played games or slept because there was nothing for them to do. She and other workers said company and...

    (CNN) – The feuding between Republicans Chris Christie and Rand Paul continued Tuesday as the senator from Kentucky cautioned the governor from New Jersey was picking a fight with the wrong guy. In an interview on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," Paul defended himself against Christie's most recent allegations that the senator was bringing home too much money for his state. "This is the king of bacon talking about bacon," Paul said about Christie. Both are considered potential 2016 contenders for the Republican presidential nomination. Earlier in the day, the outspoken governor chastised Kentucky for taking more federal...

    Allahpundit gave a great recap to one of the stranger political events of all time, the attempt by Anthony Weiner to argue for yet another opportunity for redemption. When he entered the mayoral race, Weiner said that he’d learned his lesson after the scandal broke in 2011 and was ready to return, but revelations in the past 24 hours show that he continued his extramarital Internet trolling well after the birth of his child last year. Nevertheless, his wife Huma Abedin stood by his side and declared that she supported Weiner and that the latest reports were old news and...

    Mustafa Bakari, an Egyptian politician, issued a brutal assessment of U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson. Bakari stated, “In my opinion, she [Patterson] is a member of the sleeper cells of the Brotherhood, likely recruited by Essam al-Erian or Muhammad al-Baltagi.” In a June 18 speech, Patterson made the following statement in a speech about the turmoil in Egypt: “Some say that street action will produce better results than elections,” Patterson said. “To be honest, my government and I are deeply skeptical.” John Hudson at Foreign Policy wrote of her reluctance to criticize Morsi:

    This may have been filtered through the Egyptian media for that extra nationalistic flavor, but the demands are in line with those already made by Obama and State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. Yesterday El Fagr reported that, during their most recent phone conversation, U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson demanded that Egyptian General Sisi release all Muslim Brotherhood members currently being held for questioning: “And when Sisi rejected this order, the American ambassador began threatening him that Egypt will turn into another Syria and live through a civil war, to which Sisi responded violently: ‘Neither you nor your country can overcome Egypt...

    On ABC’s ‘This Week,’ journalist Glenn Greenwald explained that Americans could expect him to reveal more secrets about the government surveillance programs. Greenwald wrote two bombshell stories last week in the Guardian newspaper – one about the National Security Agency obtaining phone records from Verizon customers and one about the agency’s PRISM program. “[S]hould we be expecting more revelations from you?” asked Stephanopoulos. “You should,” Greenwald answered shortly. Greenwald remained quiet about his sources, reminding Stephanopoulos about the importance of whistle-blowers.

    Bob Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that in a piece in that weekend’s Washington Post, he was going to question President Barack Obama’s account of how sequestration came about - and got a major-league brushback. The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half hour,” Woodward told us in an hour-long interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets. Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of...

    Oh, dear. The harsh reality of crushed unicorn dreams and the bitter smell of regret. As Twitchy reported, Americans started noticing that Obama’s “fair share” claims weren’t so fair and many were shocked … shocked … that their first paychecks of the year were smaller.
  • K-pop star PSY once advocated ‘slowly and painfully’ killing US soldiers

    He has the most-watched YouTube video ever (more than 900 million views), and is set to perform at the White House later this month. Eight years ago, however, the “Gangnam Style” K-pop singer advocated the murder and torture of US military personnel and their family members. HAPS, an English-language Korean magazine, says news of PSY’s anti-American views have long been known in Korea, but only recently surfaced in the US. The lyrics of the anti-US song performed live by PSY and several other popular Korean singers in 2004 (shortly after the US invaded Iraq) were first translated into English two...
  • Romney to Win by 7-8 points ? [CNN poll]

    Washington Times ^ | November 5, 2012 | James S. Robbins
    Updating yesterday's TRR post -- CNN released a poll on Sunday that showed independents breaking for Mitt Romney 59%, with 37% for Barack Obama. (These numbers are buried on page 30 of the CNN report.) Because CNN assessed the likely electorate as 41% Democratic, 30% Republican and 29% independent, this translated into a 49%/49% tie. But this breakdown should be called the "unlikely voters." Using the more realistic Rasmussen and Gallup party ID breakdown, with Republicans holding a slight edge in party ID, a 22 point lead among independents on election day would give Mr. Romney around 53% of the...

    The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges. Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens. Walker said he used his actual street address in England but...

    People are e-mailing about it so I’m giving you the transcript, but I want to see the clip before making a judgment. Stewart: “Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions? Not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within. Because I would say, even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as all of us being on the same page.” Obama : “Here’s what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it. All of it. And what happens,...
  • John Kerry: I Need 'Exorcism' to Purge Romney

    10/18/2012 6:25:37 PM PDT · by RobinMasters · 37 replies
    Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) has been playing Mitt Romney in President Barack Obama's debate prep sessions and he said on Wednesday that he would need an "exorcism" after Monday's final debate between Obama and Romney to purge Romney out of him. After sparring against Kerry, Obama got pummeled by Romney in the first debate. It was the most lopsided debate loss in history and may have single-handedly cost Obama the presidency. The Obama campaign also tried to throw Kerry under the bus after the first debate.
