Bush's Final Approval Rating: 22 Percent
President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.
Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.
The rating is far below the final ratings of recent two-term presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan, who both ended their terms with a 68 percent approval rating, according to CBS News polling.

Toxic Obama and Obamacare, 100% the fault of the Democrat's.
Most voters don't appreciate working two part time jobs while losing employer provided healthcare coverage due to Obamacare.

Barack Obama’s lows could hurt Democrats in 5 states
Republicans need to pick up six seats to win the majority in the Senate, and Obama’s approval rating is below 35 percent in five states where Democrats are trying to defend seats.
In West Virginia, where Jay Rockefeller is retiring, 25 percent approved of Obama.
In South Dakota, where Tim Johnson is retiring, it was 32 percent.
In Montana, where Max Baucus plans to step down to become U.S. ambassador to China, it was 33 percent.
In Alaska, where Mark Begich is seeking a second term, it was 33.5 percent.
And in Arkansas, where Mark Pryor is facing a spirited challenge from Rep. Tom Cotton, it was 34.9 percent.

In five years of a failed presidency Barack Hussein Obama has offered smokescreens, distractions and excuses rather than leadership.
His signature achievement? The Obamacare disaster.

Sen. Blunt: Obama ‘has a lot of explaining to do’ in State of the Union speech
A top Senate Republican said Saturday that President Obama “has a lot of explaining to do” in his State of the Union speech about the weak economy and persistently high unemployment.
“This administration’s agenda to create more government, more spending, more taxes, and more debt has created an inequality crisis of opportunity in our country,” he said.“Those policies have been disproportionately hurtful to the poorest among us for the past five years.”
He said of the president’s upcoming speech,“If all he has to offer is more of the same, or if he refuses to acknowledge that his own policies have failed to work – the president is simply doing what many failed leaders have done before him: trying to set one group of Americans against another group of Americans. We don’t need more class warfare, and we don’t need more interference from Washington.”

Reconsider voter ID ruling, Corbett asks court
Once again the GOP wants to suppress voters rights.
Sorry Tom Corrupett NO 2nd term for you!! LMAO!
The Corbett administration Monday asked Commonwealth Court to reconsider its finding that the Pennsylvania voter ID law is unconstitutional.
Judge Bernard McGinley earlier this month found the 2012 law violates the state constitution by imposing an unreasonable burden on voters.
Gov. Tom Corbett's general counsel, James Schultz, said in a statement Monday that the administration disagrees with the ruling and that Mr. Corbett has always favored encouraging people to exercise their right to vote.

To Obama Haters: The Actual Evidence of Obama’s Achievements Shows You’re on the Wrong Side of History— Again
Senator Obama won scholarships to America’s top academic institutions, was voted by his peers to be editor of the Harvard Law Review, is a family man with an exemplary and obviously loving marriage, has a wife who is a brilliant charismatic woman, two lovely children, is a born-again Christian comfortable with his faith, has avoided making the fast buck in the new gilded age of greed when he could have, served his community, is thoughtful, considered in his opinions, slow to anger, proved right in his judgment about the Iraq war, the economy and just about everything else, looks at every side of a question before making a decision, and is not given to grandstanding let alone defending himself. That is who I voted for twice. That is who the president still is.
And now we come to the “healthcare reform debacle.” It is a “debacle” just as the economy was a debacle. In other words it isn’t. Check the stock market lately? Check the employment numbers lately? Check the wind-down of our wars lately? Check the whereabouts of bin Laden lately? Check the falling crime rates lately? Check the fact our deficit is dropping and that we are closer to energy self sufficiency than ever lately?
Turns out all the worst case forecasts about President Obama have been wrong. No, he hasn’t fixed everything. But, in spite of the racist, crazy Tea Party, the evangelical haters and the supercilious, know-it-all liberals who harass Obama, the president has done A LOT! President Obama remains the most intellectually and emotionally even-tempered and best equipped President we have had in the modern era. And even with the entire machinery of the Republican establishment and much of the media rooting for and egging on the “failure” of his Affordable Care Act, he will prevail.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not expert on health care reform. But given the actual record of achievement of this president I’m betting against the bigots and the know-it-all-pundits. Based on how all the other “disasters” and “failures” this president “created”– by not listening to Tea Party/evangelical bigots and white “liberal” commentators… I’m betting President Obama gets the Affordable Care Act website fixed, survives this current chapter of the slow-motion lynching that’s characterized his presidency, and wins this round too.
Today the president’s poll numbers are down. Thirty years from now the word “Obamacare” will be right up there with the other things we take for granted as the bedrock of our civil society. In President Obama we were given two extraordinary gifts; a great President and a national mirror. Looking into that mirror we just learned who we really are.

Expect to pay more at Pennsylvania gas pumps starting Wednesday, as the first wave of a series of tax hikes takes effect.
“Fuel companies will determine how much of the tax increase to pass on to consumers,” said PennDOT spokesman Richard Kirkpatrick.“If entirely passed on, the change would be about 9.5 cents a gallon.”
By early 2017, the new tax rate could add more than 25 cents a gallon, pushing Pennsylvania’s gas taxes higher than any current level in the nation, according to American Petroleum Institute figures.
Thanks Tom !

Fact Check on the Marcellus Shale Coalition and Governor Corrupbett.
A powerful special interest group is desperately trying to save Governor Corbett -- all because they want to continue avoiding taxes while shortchanging working Pennsylvanians.
It started with Big Oil & Gas companies giving Corbett's campaign more than $2 million, and it continued last week when the Marcellus Shale Coalition falsely attacked Tom Wolf while also attempting to mislead Pennsylvanians.
They're not telling the truth about what a severance tax would mean for investing in key Pennsylvania priorities like education, so we need you to help get the facts out there.

yeah baby !
in other news tom corruptbett [ republican crook ] raised gasoline tax to over 25 cents in gallon in 3 years [ just 9 cents a gallon on jan 1 , 2014 ].....but give the drilling companies a free pass on no tax
With Gov. Tom Corbett looking like one of the most vulnerable governors in the country for the 2014 election cycle, the natural gas industry figures to be one of his most important allies.
The reason is simple: Natural gas companies have more than just rhetoric to help the embattled governor. They also write checks with lots of zeroes.
The gas industry poured more than $1 million into Corbett’s first gubernatorial campaign, and Democrats talking about jacking up taxes on their companies will only drive them further into Corbett’s corner for 2014.
Corbett’s team talks about raising as much as $30 million for his re-election effort. It’s a good bet that a sizable chuck of that amount will come from the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s members.
It’s no secret that the Republicans and the natural gas companies have forged a politically beneficial alliance.

First Michell Obama urges Obamacare discussions during Thanksgiving meal time, then she pleads "make it a Christmas treat around the table to talk about a little health care," now pathetically desperate Michelle Obama somewhat dishonestly pitches a donation to the Democratic Party as 'protecting Obamacare.'
"So before Barack gives his State of the Union address tomorrow, chip in $10 or more and help protect Obamacare"

Michelle Obama wants $10 donations to 'help protect Obamacare'
First lady Michelle Obama is seeking $10 donations to protect Obamacare, her husband's troubled health insurance system.
Just one day before he gives the annual State of the Union address, the first lady sent out a fundraising email to supporters hoping to use the speech to prompt donations to help Democrats in the midterm elections this fall.

The speech Obama avoids.
Heritage.org , Jan. 28, 2014
Time for Obama to Go On An Apology Tour
If he was serious about turning a new leaf in 2014, the last year he has before the lame duck period of his presidency begins, he would say this:
“My fellow Americans, I’m sorry.
“The country is 7 trillion dollars more in debt today than when I took office;
“America has fallen out of the top ten freest economies in the world on my watch;
“The number of Islamist-inspired terror plots against our homeland stands at 61, with 4 successful attacks and 57 foiled plots. But my administration has yet to answer questions surrounding the most recent terrorist plot, Benghazi;
“I’ve neglected America’s armed services and underestimated the forces needed to defend us, therefore the downward trend in our country’s military readiness and capabilities continues;
“The Affordable Care Act has not turned out to be all that affordable, workable or fair with premium costs rising for many Americans, plans being cancelled for others, and despite my promises, it turns out many folks can’t keep their doctor after all;
“And because of legislative loopholes and onerous mandates, the ACA will also entangle taxpayer funds in abortion coverage and severely restrict the ability of Americans to choose health care coverage that reflects their values;
“I’m also sorry to report that more Americans are reliant upon government today than ever before. Food stamp spending is at historic highs with one in five American households receiving food stamps in 2013. And according to a recent study by the University of Kentucky for the Associated Press,‘working-age people now make up the majority in U.S. households that rely on food stamps — a switch from a few years ago, when children and the elderly were the main recipients;’
“Despite the spin my administration has put on recent unemployment numbers, virtually the same proportion of adults have jobs now (58.6 percent) as did when I first took office (58.5 percent) and the labor force participation rate has dropped to its lowest point in 35 years;
“In terms of starting a new business, it’s not as easy as it should be. I’m sorry to report that the U.S. is ranked 20th, trailing countries like Canada, Georgia, Rwanda, Lithuania, and Malaysia.
“And speaking of business, the flood of new regulations under my administration has imposed huge costs, hindering job creation and innovation. The overall cost of meeting regulatory requirements has increased by over $60 billion since 2009, with more than 130 new regulations.
“General government expenditures are now slightly over 40 percent of gross domestic product, and total public debt equals the size of the entire economy.
“So, in conclusion, I’m sorry to report that while taxes have risen by almost $3 trillion during my time as president, I will likely need to ask for more…”
Obama isn’t going to give that speech.
