Obama approval hits all-time low i n Ohio

The botched rollout of Barack Obama's signature health care law continues to take a political toll on the president. The latest evidence is a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday morning showing the president's approval rating hitting a record low of 34 percent in Ohio. Obama's disapproval rating has jumped to an all-time high of 61 percent. This represents a significant decline from Quinnipiac's last poll in Ohio on June 26, when Obama recorded a 40 percent approval rating and a 57 percent disapproval rating.

The president's personal credibility has also taken a serious hit, thanks to his broken pledge that Americans would be able to keep their health care plans. Only 39 percent of Ohioans now believe the president is "honest and trustworthy," a new low, while 57 percent believe he is not "honest and trustworthy," a new high.

Alec Baldwin, Bitch Extraordinaire
Baldwin's MSNBC show "Up Late" is ending.
Sources reported Tuesday that the host has been fired.
Sources also reported that an obscenity-filled, homophobic rant, as well as his "diva-like behavior toward co-workers," were to blame for Baldwin and MSNBC parting ways.
please explain why Baldwin gets fired and a turd like Martin Bashir still has a job....

So what? He was elected President; and re elected. No one cares if he had a conventional upbringing, what does it matter? That's what makes him all the more interesting and appealing; against all odds; he became the President of the United States. He exemplifies the American dream that anything is possible.
Get over it Frank; you're in the dark ages. Besmirching the President daily for 5 years is a sign of mental illness; but the good news is that mental health care is covered in Obamacares! Get help. You've got cancer in the brain.

LOL! There is a new medical term for Frank, Carol and the rest of the merry band of birthers:

Birtheritis

Cure? Birtherectomy (formerly called electroshock therapy)

You don't get it, Vodka. You never did, never will, swill.

I skipped over about 500 posts to find this... It bares repeating:
"In the text, Francis denounced trickle-down economic theories as unproven and naive, saying they are based on a survival of the fittest mentality "where the powerful feed upon the powerless" with no regard for ethics, the environment or even God.
"Money must serve, not rule!" he said in calling for political leaders to reform the system. "The Pope loves everyone, rich and poor alike, but he is obliged in the name of Christ to remind all that the rich must help, respect and promote the poor."
the Roman Church and the Pope are and always have been Socialists...so what???...

Francis is the perfect example of why non-Roman Christians reject the Roman Church and its deification of a living human...
