President "I Will Not Rest" Obama's Approval Rating Hits Record Low

Tyler Durden's picture


Nearly 80% of Americans have lost faith in the American political system, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll. Despite record highs in stocks (and consumer confidence?) - and a President proclaiming that as victory - 60% of Americans are dissatisfied with the economy and 70% believe the nation is heading in the wrong direction. Who is to blame for this? President Obama's overall approval rating has collapsed to a new low at 40%, with only 42% approving of his handling of the economy. "Americans are cranky, unhappy… It is with everything going on the world," and 57% are pissed off enough to carry a protest sign. But don't worry, as President Obama has reiterated during his tenure, he "will not rest..."


What Republicans would protest...


What Democrats would protest....


What President Obama will do...


On the bright side, Obama is 10x more popular (among Americans) than Putin...

A small segment of people I thought were imbeciles 30 years ago, I now just consider average Amerikans.

No immigration into the US from 1924 thru 1964- then the "Great Society" began that allowed the critical mass of idiots on the dole.

All he has to do to get back above 50% approval is hand out MOAR FREE SHIT!!  Why else would anyone think this asshat is doing anything remotely close to a good job, unless you are getting some freebies from him?  Its the FSA that keeps him from sinking to near 0%, he'd more likely be closer to tracking the 10 year treasury at 2.5%.

I don't buy the 40%.  Even with the public as stupid as they are, and that's quite stupid, I still think the 40% figure is 'adjusted' to account for items such as extremely cold weather, western drought, illegal aliens who will eventually cross the border, or perhaps even the ebola virus.

You do have to massage the numbers a bit to get a more accurate read on the situation.  I see it like this: 35% of the population is going to "approve" of him even if he were caught fondling small children and drowning puppies on a regular basis and 35% would "disapprove" even if he pooped gold bricks, cured cancer, and miraculously healed all blind people.  Truncating the sample, you get a 16.7% (5/30) approval rating.

I HIGHLY doubt obama is 10x more popular to Americans than Putin is at this point.  Not when getting a colonoscopy is 10x more popular than obama is. 

obama is only 10x more popular than Putin when you pole elitist, globalist, sociopath, bankster, and politi-scum. 

That's the demographic Putin is pissing off these days.

42% approve? Who the FUCk are they? Oh let me guess... they are: .gov employees, welfare queens, trail lawyers, disability kings, the half of the union membership that needs union protection to keep earning $40 an hour to turn a wrench, college professors, limo libs, and guilty white women.

Ok y'all have had your fun and now you can feel better for electing a man because we evil white men oppress everyone... now get over your fucking guilt and let's put the grown ups back in charge.

This is starting to sound a lot like a flip of the coin to "it's all Bush's fault". I think just as striking, though not the headline of this article, is the abysmal 14% congress approval rating.

The whole system needs to be cleaned out, remove all of the folks in and around politics today and replace them with fresh blood. No one cares about elections anymore because they know the problems go deeper than one or two politicians.

Well as long as we have a wide open boarder on the South everything will be fine.  The unskilled Labor wages will continue to fall, our freedoms will continue to diminish and the family unit will continue to disingrate.  Nothing but a rosey future for all.

Froze, you hit is on the head. Why are US citizens unhappy with politicians? For the simple fact they care less about the native US population. Nooses will be coming out in a few years.

Nice. The inference is so you can shoot them? Bravo. This is the real problem with our country, the disunity. Trust me, you have more in common with an American democrat than you do with anyone else in the world, we should all remember that. The only people that benefit from disunity are the people already in power, bigger chips to play in the same game. You're better off having a drink with a Dem and figure out how to solve this than pining for a day of false reconing.

And that's the world today. Nobody cares about the content anymore.


and 57% are pissed off enough to carry a protest sign...


a protest sign... rebels with a cause....

"They never take the smartest guy in the room."

Even intelligent politicians can be corrupt to the bone.  Smart and/or corrupt is not mutually exclusive.

"They never take the smartest guy in the room. " True. That's because the smartest guy in that particular room isn't very smart. The REALLY smart guys don't get into politics. They don't want the abuse. They prefer to own the politicians.

I feel an urge to remind you of Plato, the old Greek.

He basically said, anyone who actually craves power is self evidently unsuitable for the job.

So leaders must be recruited in a complusory way from the ranks of scholarship etc., and have a short tenure.

The above mentioned cravers will do everthing in their power to overthrow such a system, and so they will , with regret, have to be ,  how you say?  eliminated.

I like the word "removed".  It's very vague and allows the real agenda to hide in the tall grass........which poses a striking similarity to Jay Carney's pressers.

...So leaders must be recruited in a complusory way from the ranks of scholarship etc., and have a short tenure....

So the sociopaths will just go the academic route, which is exactly what they do now? I don't think that's helping.

So I'll adjust it in a way that works, because Plato was a "leader" and therefor, a self-indicted sociopath...not to mention pedophile. Anyway. He got his and right so.

So leaders must be recruited in a complusory and random way from the ranks of tax paying registered voters of natural birth etc., and have a 2 yr tenure. The gig shall be part time, 6 months out of the year with 6 months present in home district required. Salary will be set by state legislators.

Sorry, but Comte d'Herblay owns the worst golf swing in pre-post-of present history. He has to go out on the course at daybreak, by special permission from the Golf Course management so that no one sees him but for the last few holes. It's too depressing.
