Obama Least Popular President In 4 Decades

George Washington's picture

A new Washington Post/ABC poll released today shows that Obama is the least popular president in 39 years:

The president’s overall approval rating stands at 43 percent, while disapproval is at 55 percent.




Obama ends his fifth year in office with lower approval ratings than almost all other recent two-term presidents. At this point in 2005, for example, former president George W. Bush was at 47 percent positive, 52 percent negative. All other post-World War II presidents were at or above 50 percent at this point in their second terms, except Richard M. Nixon, whose fifth year ended in 1973 with an approval rating of 29 percent because of the Watergate scandal that later brought impeachment and his resignation.

Why is Obama so unpopular?

Because – as horrible as Bush was – Obama is worse than Bush in favoring the super-elite, bailing out the big banks, protecting financial criminals, targeting whistleblowers, keeping government secrets, trampling our liberties and starting military conflicts in new countries.

Obama is even worse than Bush in redistributing wealth from the American people to a handful of fatcats and trampling civil liberties.

Americans now realize that Obama is not following the will of the people.

Moreover, having a sell-out president Obama after a sell-out president Bush has shown the people that neither mainstream parties represents them.

Indeed, both the mainstream Republican and Democratic parties are virtually identical regarding core issues including:

Any apparent difference is just a scripted show.

Under both Republican and Democratic politicians, both the rule of law and free market capitalism have been trashed.

In reality, we no longer have free market capitalism. Instead, we have socialism for the rich and sink-or-swim capitalism for everyone else.   Conservatives see the socialism half of this equation, and liberals see the laissez faire free market half. Both liberals and conservatives hate crony capitalism. Look here, here, here.

Please have lost faith in the 2 party system.

Note: The poll numbers for Congress are even worse.

In a stunning triumph of international diplomacy,  the president is sending openly gay athletes (+ Janet) with the delegation to the Olympics.

Best job in the country =  gay banking.

45% of the American people still think he is cool?  Most are on goverment handouts or working for Unions that add nothing to the counyry.  Take the 12% of the black population out who votes skin color alone and you are in the 30+% range so don't believe the 45%, its just more liberal bullshit.

The 25th Amendment and 3 US Code 19 (statutory framework of the 25th Amendment) describe the process of "removing" the "person acting as President" due to "INABILITY", i.e physical, mental or CONSTITUTIONAL disability. Impeachment is not the only process of removal, and in fact the portion of the 12th Amendment superseded by the 25th Amendment specifically says "Constitutional disability of the President", so clearly it has been contemplated that an ineligible "person acting as President" would need to be dealt with.

Domestic enemy Hussein Obama is certainly not a "natural born Citizen", as req. by A2S1C5, since he was born British, of a British subject father. There is a case at the Appeal lebel right now in Fl. that challenges Hussein Obama's eligibility that was initiated after the general election, and perfectly within the statutes of Florida that provide for a challenge to the eligibility of "any person nominated or elected" (Fl SS. 102.168(1)(3)(b)). A finding by the Florida judiciary of ineligibility would trigger S. 3 or 4 of the 25th Amendment.

SCOTUS precedent and US Law.


"The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners." Minor v. Happersett, 88 US 162, 167 (1874)


Obama was born of a foreign father who was eventually deported, thus he is not eligible, even if born in the Oval Office.

Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum all were born of foreign parents and are not eligible. Think that's a coincidence? John McCain, the traitor, also is not eligible since he was born in the PCZ and needed 8 US Code 1403 to become a citizen--- thus he was naturalized by statute. Natural born Citizens need no naturalization (they are born in the US of US Citizen parents---both, or an unmarried US Citizen mother--- what else would they be-- they are citizens by the law of nature (law of nations), i.e natural born Citizens). Anyone born of less than 2 US citizens on US Soil that is considered a US Citizen is naturalized in some way (either passively by statute, or by oath).

What, specifically, makes any of you think Obama has power to do anything except appear on TV? It's called "figurehead." Look it up.

Barry Obama Husane Soetero or what ever his real name is, is absolutely the WORST presidential puppet in the history of the world.

He wanted the job.  He should have the balls to tell the banksters to fuck off and accept the consequences.  Instead, he is their puppet.  He has plenty of "power."  He chooses to be a scoundrel.  Fuck him and his masters.

Obama's biggest problem is lack of integrity, promising one thing and doing another.  His walk doesn't reflect his talk.  I didn't expect perfection, but he just blew it too many times.

Freddie's picture

Sort of like saying Son of Sam, Charlie Manson and Ted Bundy's biggest problem is they liked to murder.

Obama has endless problems.  He is a NWO/intel/MIC plant with a sealed history.  A person who stole elections and had sealed court cases unsealed to smear his opponents.  The guy he was running against in IL was a saint by comparison.

His biggest and earliest supporters are billionaires with long histories of ***king people and countries over.

Canoe Driver's picture

It's hard for me to grasp that so many of you Murkins still believe the President is making all these decisions.  The obvious reason why campaign promises all go out the window once the prez is elected, regardless of which prez and going back to the frikkin Johnson administration, is because someone obviously calls the guy up on his first night in the White House and tells him the facts of life. How naive can you people possibly be?

Diogenes's picture

They know what to do long before they get to the white house. If they didn't, they would never get a sniff at the nomination let alone raise enough money to get elected.

cherry picker's picture

It is not being naive, it is about honesty.

If he isn't pulling the strings, then have the guts to say so.

If he can't tell the truth, he is being traiterous isn't he?

Men and women have died to preserve what the USA stands for.  He should honor that instead of playing patsy.

El Vaquero's picture

Problem is, men and women have died recently to preserve what the USA stands for today.  Many of them died believing that the USA stands for what it stood for in the days of yore, or rather, what they thought it stood for back then.  They don't know the whole truth of this country, many of them because they never thought to question it.  None of us know the whole truth.

Reaper's picture

The polls are misleading. Many still fear the racist label. The sheeple crave a shepherd. The sheeple want to trust. The sheeple lost trust in Bush and hoped to trust Obama.
Obama promises to serve the sheeple as his master, while he also quietly, at the same time, serves his noble elite 0.1% masters. The sheeple's and Congress's delusion is that the FED with power given by Congress, which could be removed by Congress, isn't really spending the sheeple's money on the FED's cronies. What's the difference between Congress giving the banks US dollars and the FED giving US dollars to the banks? Nothing, except the sheeple are fooled.

lakecity55's picture

I would hazard his true rating is about 17-27%.

My personal guess is 22%

Imagine what Obama's popularity rating would be if 95% of news outlets weren't trying desperately to prop it up.

Nixon was a crook, but you never got the impression he was actually trying to undermine the country.

Nixon also called Bohemian Grove 'faggoty' so he compares favorably to the current crop of politicians on a couple points.

Diogenes's picture

Crooked and paranoid. Believed communists were conspiring to destroy America, famously said "we are surrounded by enemies" after looking at a crowd of liberals.

Bat shit crazy or ahead of his time?

janus's picture

a little of both, which is usually the case; i'd say the scales are biased to the clairvoyant side.  nixon made tons of mistakes, but was not without his merits.  he was most certainly driven to advance a certain vision of 'america' --subjective though it may be -- over and against other competing visions.  he considered 'the establishment' both legitimate and benevolent; was fundamentally imperialistic (and i do with him in this sometimes sympathize); and tended to treat dissenters as anti-american. one of his most pronounced shortcomings was an inability to distinguish those who earnestly sought to destroy 'america' and those who stressed the importance of dissent itself -- vital to the function of any real republic.

that being said, international communism is/was & will remain a ferocious menace to freedom and individual liberty -- and there are other enemies to progress...organized crime, graft and cronyism, unconstitutional tomfoolery (to name just a few) that nixon was rather tolerant of (to put it generously).  all the same, he seemed to recognize what we were up against; got into some ends justifying means mindset, there was some heavy drinking and pill taking toward the end, and, well the rest is history.

nixon was not what most assume.  he expanded johnson's great society by orders of magnitude.  he didn't decouple from the gold window by bent of nefarious aim; had france (or any of the other gold creditors) redeemed and encouraged others to do likewise, all would've been lost; and we'd likely still be using rotary phones (i could explain).  france and the rest basically accepted a deal to stabilize the price of their most precious commodity backed by bullets and bold diplomacy...ie the petro dollar.  nixon could do the math.

when you spend several generations on the net end of the gold game, you build every dyke and levy, and fortify its every defenses with every battlement you've got.

the fiat citadel is crumbling fast.  something has to support it; my guess is empire...the ole fashion kind where we exchange resource appropriation for civilization -- gun-boat-style.  besides, every idle generation needs a frontier, it's always been so.  empires unleash it when at long last they have to.  it'll be fun.  we already have the new slave system en force, now it'll just be a matter of finally formalizing the spoils system.

so, back to nixon, we've not only been infiltrated, we've been captured.  gentlemen, this is all about flag-planting...the takeover is being proudly announced.  and, yes, i've come to believe that the banking system, as it functions, is essentially an adapted form of marxism.  it is top down do-goddery; and in just compensation for their benevolent nobility, they get EVERYTHING.  fuck that.

as to gold, i don't know...gold is just as easy to manipulate as fiat -- when it comes to supply and demand, at least; believe me, you'd all be picking the gold-teeth outta your children's mouths if it came down to buying bread from a banker who insisted on such for payment.  i have to say that i'm still, in light of all that's occuring, a fan of digital currencies.  they are the most democratic money ever developed.  and truly fair money has always been the great inhibitor of man's potential.  but, goddamit if i'm gonna sit idly by as they're 'regulated' for, of course, our own good.  

time to invert the spoils system.  time for a revolution of stubborn resistance.  

long live the dark web.

here's a dedication to nixon:


or maybe it's a special delivery from janus, addressed to 1600 penn...

in this land of conditions/

i'm not above suspicions/

i won't attack you/

but i won't back you/

well it's so good to be here/

sleepin on your front lawn/

remember your guard dog?/

well, i'm afraid to say that he's gone/

it was such a drag to hear him whining all night long/

yes that was me with the doves/

setting them free near the factory/

where you build your computer love/

i hope you get the connection/

cause i can't take the rejection/

i won't deceive you/

i just don't believe you,

(special thanks to neil young)

i'm still not happy/

i feel like there's something wrong,

No need to accept this "plan" of  a couple hundred really rich old men who sit around and smoke cigars and talk about how much they hate sharing their stolen loot with the people who rightfully earned it.  The herculean option is available and is most probably underway right now.  BOYCOTT ISRAEL (ground zero)

There is nothing else to do.  If you want to turn into a debt slave, and if you are an American, that would be the only other alternative - Sleep a couple hours in an overcrowded barracks on a cot if you are lucky, rise at day break and begin working after a slice of stale bread (no water for you until lunch time MFer and that will be in the Ramen noodles now peppered with larvae for extra flavor and substance).  Working as a slave means maybe "no talking, no going to the bathroom, no vacations, no sick time, you either work or are killed with a bullet to the head).


Those are you options, Americans.  That is the only choice you have.  How this got so far has already been covered but I will say it again - The Samson Option and if you think our good friends in Israel will be slaving along with us, you are wrong again!  Yes, Israel is the IMF, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve, NATO, forcing us once again to look at the CHEWISH people as the cause for so much anguish and despair.
