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.

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.

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.

I don't think that's it.  I have a lot of "liberal" friends who almost completely view American politics as us vs. them (R vs. D).  And the same is true in reverse.  MSM's job isn't to promote one view vs. another, it's to keep Americans evenly and increasingly divided.  Divide and conquer.  The two party system is pure mythology.

Unless your folks have had some sort of awakening, your folks, regardless of some level of disappointment in Obama, will still vote for him in 2012.  They still think there are two sides.  They still support one.  Even if that support is nothing more than the cliche, "lesser of two evils", I'll bet you $1000 fake Internet dollars they'll vote for Obama again.  I mean what are they going to do, vote for Perry?  Of course I could be wrong.  I don't know you parents... I'm just playing the odds, and the odds are certainly on my side.

Sorry, I forgot the whining about any and all government support... my bad!

btw... never taken a dime of government support... comfortably retired and invested in Au / Ag, so I'll be fine while you're standing in the local bread line lamenting the austerity you and your friends covet... have fun!

The fact that you think you will be fine when everything collapses tells me that you are probably some shriveled up old senior with a couple of gold trinkets collecting your SSI check that some poor Gen xer has to pay for with their suppressed wages,because greedy old people such as yourself want the government (meaningwe the people that work for a living) to hand out everything to them. By the way if you don't have plenty of lead when this all collapses, your couple of gold trinkets won't mean crap.

GOP expected a sinking Titanic,  before 2012...still on track..why else would McCain run with a Gov no one knew and allow THEIR (the political classe's/Banking elite's) media to lambast her at every turn? They want BO in when the shit comes down, he's got Krung-man, Bennie,  Jeether et al to keep him from seeing a way out of economic turmoil . His unfortunate lack of leadership ability hastens his failure, all's going according to plan. JMO P.S. We'll not have another "black" President for 50 fuckin' years, no matter how capable, that's a little known part of the debacle, but you'll soon have "Obama St." at the end of every " MLK Blvd.", I'm guessing.

every street SHOULD be MLK street.  Martin Luther King invented everything.  Rayciss like George Washington, Isaac Newton,and Thomas Edison stole Martin Luther King's ideas.  Nobody ever dreamed before Martin Luther King invented having a dream.  He's the most significant man that ever lived.  He was the one who crossed Valley Forge but the rayciss wouldn't put him in the picture.  He invented the airplane and landed on the moon, built the pyramids, and defeated godzilla.  Every day should be Martin Luther King day.

The election of the Deceiver in Chief, Barack Insane Obama, is THE most catastrophic error of our era!

Individual freedom will be lucky to survive the tyranny of this man. Decades from now, those who still remember freedom may well recall these years as the death knell of not only American freedom, but of human liberty in general! Those are literally the stakes!

I would venture to suggest that nearly all of those who still "approve" of the performance of the Teleprompter Tyrant are on the dole in some form or another to receive payments from the government. As long a THEY personally benefit, the rest of the country can go to hell, as long as they get theirs!

Entitlement = greed for the middle and poorer classes!

Once the food riots erupt on the coming bread lines, the administration will send in the Federal Domestic Police Force TSA goons to suppress said riots and violently tamp down the rioters.  That's when his poll numbers go up and cruise to re-election.   Its all part of the Alinsky plan.

It would take an extremely unpopular president to justify extreme actions. All part of the set-up. if a president is needed to to be made to look good, fall guys abound.

And extremely unpopular presidents are known to do crazy things. Like launch wars etc. Let us see.

Paul 'Clueless' Krugman also counts in the "disapprove" camp since Obama does not spend enough to his liking. And I guess thare is a significant chunk of the american populace dumb enough to follow his line of thought, so those surveys are really without a purpose or point whatsoever.

why should Mossad shoot down America's best? Unless the CIA put a contract on the seals to be executed by Mossad. That makes the Admin its own worst enemy and the Mossad an accessory and objective ally to Talibans.

Obama will be remembered as a president of many firsts:

First somewhat black president, since he's got some white in there

First president to see half as many Americans on food stamps as actually working. About 100 million private sector jobs and almost 50 million Americans on food stamps.

First president to actually "kill" Osama Bin Laden. Does anyone actually believe we really killed him?

First President to see the dollar fall to lows against virtually every currency on Earth.

First president to see a yellow metal with no real use other than a hedge against the stupidity of government to hit $1800 an ounce.

You can add to the list.
