Obama (Dis)Approval Rating Update: All Time Record Low

Tyler Durden's picture

In the aftermath of the first of may town hall meetings (there is a second one tonight), it is only fitting to present this chart courtesy of Real Clear Politics which summarizes data across all the different polling services indicating Obama's approval and more importantly disapproval rating. The message is clear: all time low. Time to resurrect and kill Osama for the 3rd time? Or maybe Obama can spend another day spamming his vastly reduced Twitter followers?

It is time for Barry to govern by decree while invoking NSPD 51: suspend the Constitution, declare Martial Law, confiscate all types of guns -either by peaceful or coercive means- and place under strict quarantine those who may try to revolt (FEMA camps have been designed for such purpose).

Besides that, it is good to remind the audiences that Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue.The sooner the US economy collapses the better, so these brutes will finally learn NOT to live beyond their means.

At least many of us are smart enough to come-up with new thoughts once in awhile instead of copy/pasting the same worthless BS like you.  You fail miserably at life.

Rasmussen is consistently the most accurate forecaster of what approval/disapproval means in an electoral sense.  I guess Gallup captures the wider public that doesn't vote.

i don't know, the washington post data looks good to me — people know it's those evil teabagging republicans who are stopping obama from saving the world and being declared the new messiah. people are gonna look for a REAL progressive at the next election, not some teabagging loon like ron paul — and who is more progressive than obama?

Q : who is the joke on? The People or the Oligarchs? 

Depending on the Answer, you know which side of the divide you be. If it's on the Oligarchs, paragons of self esteem, of free enterprise, you can be sure you will find it insufferable that he, a socialist, sucks the blood of free America for the statist parasites that are the cause of America's imminent demise.

If its on the People, then he is a coporate shill, worse than his predecessor. And he deserves to be put in the same dog pen as those robber barons, who have betrayed the nation. 

He cannot be in BOTH camps, 'cos that is betrayal of value systems at total loggerheads : either you be free enterpriser and love the Oligarchs for what they are, the pride of America since day N°1. Or else you are a crypto commie like FDR and all those who robbed America through taxes. This is the existential divide, the ideological grand canyon, that faces the country's choice; in this age where the slightest wrong step could send the nation down over the edge into foggy bottom.

Choose your camp Jimmy Hendrix's ghost, brother, or exact opposite.

So that the joke does not propagate itself  like a raging forest fire across the nation.

The corporate establishment is trying to have their cake and eat it too.  They want the people subsidized and dependent, but only long enough for the corporate oilgarchy to rape the people and plunder the economy.  Then the fascists will move to greener pastures, with or without America in tow.  They will live America in a state of disaray; with half of its population starving and the other half left to guess what happened.  No one will own any gold or silver, so trade will be as if America is an island, as in island economy.

But will this happen?  Will people come to their senses as to the game being played?

BO is a place holder, and nothing else.

You do realize the moon isn't really made of green cheese don't you?  Cause that's the only place where they can live in peace.  No atmosphere but the gravity is really low so you can bounce around like a kid and hit golfballs a long ways.

Obama is no joke.

That chart looks like a big black penis and it's fucking the U.S.  No joke.

"Obama is no joke."

When the history is written he will be chronicled as a disaster.

Jimmy Carter will look like Ronald Reagan in comparison.

Of course the other villians in the tragedy will be Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Durbin et al.

approve graphed as black - racist

so obama's budget figures cannot be black? — that would be racist.

He's going to need to kill Osama again or soon he will be below 30.

Its Bush's Fault!

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

Barack Obama doesn't care about black people.

Its Bush's Fault!

  • The bailouts began under Bush
  • Fankline Raines walked under Bush
  • Two wars started under Bush
  • Patriot Act began under Bush
  • Guantanamo was started by Bush
  • Warrantless wiretapping began under Bush

And they ALL continued under Obama.

I would say that the blame rests with morons that think they can pin it on a president.

The blame rests with idiots who think there is a difference between the two parties, and keeps voting them into power and keeps stoking the pretend fires of supposedly there's a difference between Obama and Bush.


It's a false dichotomy, you stupid idiot at best  and you traitor at worst.

Not nearly low enough if the truth were really being told by the MSM. Perma 30s is where he belongs. 

The MSM has been propping up this marxist bitch and protecting him like a crippled baby in a wheelchair.

Journalism has slid among lawyers and politicians as the least respected profressions.

trav7777's picture

no question about that...if they gave even a vaguely forthright airing of his repeated gaffes, screwups, and assorted shit that they made the nightly fodder out of Busch for, he might be cracking 30 right now.

But this will be a good lesson for the public not to believe any of the MSM anymore.  Trust the media NOT owned by one clan.

"But this will be a good lesson for the public not to believe any of the MSM anymore.  Trust the media NOT owned by one clan."


You mean the media that sold us the Iraq War, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and Saddam Hussein was working with binLaden and poo-pooed the very IDEA that there could possibly be a housing bubble, and was claiming a 65+ % homeownership rate was awesome.

isn't honest??

Well, what a shock that is.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Journalism has been a joke for a very very long time Gwar. The crumbled 5th column.



They lost the moral fiber a long time ago and good journalists have declined just like the value of the dollar. Fewer and fewer true investigative folks out there. It' snot worth the risk.

1880... 11 years before the birth of Edward Bernays.  Remarkable, the illusion.
