I must be psychic. Told Homer just this afternoon Obama's approval wasn't going to get any better. People now see the obvious - the emperor has no clothes - and the reality of Obamacare is sinking in.
Still looking for the GOP congressperson letting Obamacare run its course but I stumbled upon this irresistible turd.

45% Approve - 47% disapprove

Telling the truth is not pure evil, Homer. You really are becoming quite worrisome.
Look at any poll and every one of them will show you the same thing. The majority were - and still are - against Obamacare.
The reality is sinking in now and the odds are Obama's approval will not be improving anytime soon.
So does saying that also make me pure evil, Homer? Does it? Really?
Went all the way back into Thursday daytime (you can tell 'cause Homer's posting) and nothing about a GOP congressperson advocating letting Obamacare run its course.

Don't tell me its just another LIE, is it some compulsion with you???

Look again.

August 5-11: 44% Approve, 48% Disapprove.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/124922/presidentia...

He's dropped in the polls on every issue from job approval to handling the economy to health care.

I posted that too yesterday, I believe. You'll just have to trust me or look it up yourself. It was another Gallup poll. Shouldn't be hard to google.

Good morning, by the way.

You just want a big daddy President like all the other right-whiners.
(its actually simpler than that: you just can't tolerate the colored Democrat in the WH)
Any other president would have called a joint meeting with chiefs of staff, generals, advisors, etc. and been on top of every decision with the #1 priority being to save those Americans, staying up half the night if necessary.

Obama didn't even call Panetta to get an update once and made only one phone call to Hillary Clinton.

Perhaps he was playing cards. No one knows what he was doing. But he obviously got enough sleep to be fresh for his fundraiser in Los Vegas the next day.

Then came the lies about a video and altering the CIA's talking points linking it directly to terrorism beyond recognition.

Winning reelections with this president (and most democrats) always comes first before being truthful with the American public even if people die on the anniversary of 9/11.

If you went to the link I provided you saw the history for at least the last month. Thursday it was NOT 35%- 62%. In fact, on the same page you'll see he's never polled below 38%.

RNC Votes To Ban CNN/MSNBC Debates – Which They Have No Power To Do

There is, however, a small problem with the Priebus declaration. The RNC has no power whatsoever to prohibit any debate by an network. Sure, they can pass resolutions that make grandiose claims to authority that they don’t have, but reality trumps their hubris. The truth is that any network can announce its intention to produce a debate. They can invite candidates to participate. The candidates are free to accept or reject any offer as they see fit. Chances are, the second and third tier candidates will accept virtually any opportunity to promote themselves on national television. Subsequently, the frontrunners will be reluctant to let their competitors have the stage to themselves. So the debates will go on with a full cast of characters.

Priebus’ threat, therefore, is an impotent cry for attention. He is not empowered to force his will on the people who are vying to be the next leader of the free world. In a best case scenario he may be able to influence the number of debates, which is a goal he has previously articulated. After all, it is fairly obvious that the more Republican candidates are exposed to the American people, the more they will embarrass themselves, and the more votes they will lose. The GOP has a distinct interest in limiting their exposure, and that is what Priebus is aiming for.

The hypocrisy of Priebus’ resolution is apparent in the fact that he is only nixing CNN and MSNBC, even though there have been reports that Fox may be producing the NBC project. Priebus cannot extend his toothless ban to Fox or there would be no cable news networks available to host a GOP debate. But there is no reasonable explanation for why Fox would be given a pass (other than their role as the GOP PR division).

The full text of the resolution cites campaign donations by the head of NBC’s entertainment division to Hillary Clinton, but the head of Fox News’ parent corporation has done likewise. Also, the News Corp political PAC, News America Holdings, has given more to Democrats than Republicans in each of the last four election cycles. So if producing Clinton documentaries and donating to her campaign warrant prohibition as debate hosts, then Fox clearly qualifies.

According to a Gallup poll in May of this year:

69% agree that questions over the Obama administration's public response to the September 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi deserves more investigation including 52% who "strongly agree."

On the IRS scandal, 74% agree that issue needs to be investigated more including 56% who "strongly agree."

http://www.gallup.com/poll/162584/americans-a...

But the liberal media and you liberals keep parroting Obama and saying "there's no there 'there'" and they are "phony scandals".

I thought Democratic presidents always made decisions by polls.

Guess they weren't as narcissistic as this one and as insulated by the media lapdogs.

ever since Mitch Daniels got caught lying about job creation in Indiana, most sane Hoosiers(re: not republicans) don't pay much attention to what the Republicans in Indy have to say.
Mitch Daniels is a Pseudo Liberal too or RINO and is in the left wing of the Republican Party just not the Democrat Party's left wing.

A RINO (Republican in Name Only) is an officeholder or candidate who is a member of the Republican Party, but holds views to the political left of most Republican voters. The term "RINO" describes politicians who claim to be Republican but are in fact liberal, and therefore generally debase the winning conservative coalition base of the Republican Party.

Liberals make a good point what could Obama’ do’ about Egypt ,what he’s done for the Last Five years ‘ Nothing?’ Maybe I’m being a little Harsh he did give a 6 minute speech concerning the crisis then return back to the Golf Course, I’m guessing but the President and the Liberal Media probably perceives this as another Phony Crisis conjured up by Republicans to make him look Bad….Right?
