At best, you prove the point I have made to you on countless occasions that polls, articles, blogs, and partisan sources are not to be trusted or believed.
Then why did you bring up poll percentages to bolster your argument. Then you Inflated the numbers of the poll.
YOU SAY-"Reagan's approval rating finish? at almost 60% where it started. What about Obama to this point? A full 13 points below where it started"
I have never said you thought Obama's race was a reason for his failure.
Nice try in diverting from what I actually said.
If you did not understand it the first time, but from your response I am sure you did, I will tell you again.
It is a logical conclusion you do not like black people based on the amount of derogatory remarks, and the stereotyping of the Black race you have posted on this thread.
You know your remarks are there you are attempting to direct the conversation away from them are an exercise in futility.
On your post that said that I looked at a Gallup poll, you're wrong, it was a Wall Street Journal poll. And as I have stated before, take all polls with a grain of salt and put very little stock in their worth. Since polls can be manipulated, they are no more than an opinion of an organization on a given topic. Your opinion is as reliable as any poll out there, especially partisan polls. Don't get too cocky though because those polls have a value somewhere close to zero. Do you know how long I have been trying to get you to see this? Now, do I expect you to forget this the next time you need a poll to prove your point? Of course.

On the race issue you are using another staple liberal tactic. Ask a question or make a statement where the answer to the question or the response to the statement can be easily turned against the person you are debating. As for finding my quotes that "expose" my "racism" goes, it's simply not true no matter how hard you try to make it so. Besides, you are the court stenographer of posts. I really believe you cut, paste, and orginize every post from everyone you debate against so that you may use it against them at a later date. So the notion that you won't waste your time shows that there is no evidence of racism in any of my posts. Unless you wear a chip on your shoulder and are just looking for a reason to pull the race card. So take your pick, liar or angry for no reason. Which are you?

But one thing is for damn sure, I will not have to, will I?
I wouldn't be so sure about that. Obama's second term isn't over and his excessive spending or ramped up printing dollars out of thin air sure the heck isn't over. You are happy being average in a world where average is aweful instead of being great in a world of average. So I guess not having the highest credit rating is ok as long as we show some signs of improvement. That's the same line of thinking as giving the winners and losers all trophies in a championship game and saying "your all winners".

Let's look at the facts about his, "excessive spending" ,

The deficit was down about 25 percent from the first eight months of fiscal 2012, and the Congressional Budget Office is predicting that’s all the red ink for this fiscal year.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reported a continued decline in the federal budget deficit:“The CBO projects a $642 billion budget deficit for fiscal year 2013, down more than $200 billion from its February estimate and the smallest annual shortfall since 2008. It is the lowest level of deficit spending to date under President Obama, who faced $1 trillion or more in annual deficits during his first term.”

"In fact, government spending under President Obama has grown at a slower rate than it did under any president since Dwight D. Eisenhower, according to Bloomberg (that’s over 50 years ago, if you’re counting). "


Another reality check for you.

The inflation rate in the United States was recorded at 1.10 percent in April of 2013. Inflation Rate in the United States is reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Historically, from 1914 until 2013, the United States Inflation Rate averaged 3.4 Percent

Over the last 12 months, the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 1.1 percent before seasonal adjustment. The index decreased 0.4 percent in April on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on May 16th.

Well, that compromised the hell out of your, I do not dislike him because he is black it's his failed policies, statement.

In all fairness here, Reality Check, spending bills come from congress.

The decrease in the deficit is due in part to their own obstructionism.

FYI, Micheal Douglas states that he contacted mouth cancer after having a long history of performing oral sex on women...don't know about most of you, but having been a lifelong practitioner, this has me worried...can't concentrate of politics right now. Waiting on the wife hurry home so I can continue my quest to disprove Micheal's theory.

It's about all they deserve. They do talk a good game, it's their actions I have a problem with. But that is more than we get from Obama and his administration so no trophy at all for them.

In all fairness, you have slammed Bush for his spending. So which is it, Congress or the President?

Here is an article that counters your deficit reduction point.

http://hotair.com/archives/2013/01/16/has-oba...

You got your info from some site so I guess we're back at not being able to believe articles, stats, or blogs. Our current political climate is WAY too volatile and dishonest to believe anything other than what you see.

Sorry but your link does not counter the facts. it offers the opinion of Capt. ED Morrissey a conservative blogger, columnist, motivational speaker, and talk show host. In other words an attention whore who would say almost anything for the publicity. You would do well to take your own advice on this one, instead of using his opinion blog as fact.

BTW- could you please give me a post number or numbers of where "I have slammed Bush for his spending"

LMAO-"You got your info from some site"

YEP, here is a partial list

Gallup poll - yes I admit. leans right.

Bloomberg - Yes guilty again of leaning right'

Wall Street Journal- Damn am I a Republican?

The Consumer Price Index

US Bureau of labor

You tell me Reality Check,


"So which is it, Congress or the President?

In a new poll released Thursday, the American people’s confidence in Congress fell to 10% and it represents the worst showing for any societal institution in the history of the Gallup poll, and is three percentage points below last year’s numbers and the fourth year in a row Congress is the least trusted institution in America.

What makes the sites you find reliable and the sites others find not? I'll tell you, nothing other than the information you find in those sites lines up with what you want to believe. Any site that can do that can get your support. As I told you before, I don't put much stock in anything I find on the internet and neither should you. Do the careers of blogger, columnist, motivational speaker and talk show host make one an "attention whore" or is it just the conservative part?

I wasn't aware that the peoples confidence in Congress had anything to do with who writes spending bills. That was the original topic right? Anyway, I have never known Congress to have a stellar approval rating under any president. I don't even know what their highest or lowest ratings are because it doesn't matter. How could they have good approval numbers when you have 500+ politicians from 500+ different walks of life and 2-3 different political affiliations being viewed and judged by millions of people from millions of different walks of life and many more different schools of political thought. The President has the luxury of an open podium anytime and anywhere he wants and he gets to select his audience in many cases. All he has to do is give one person's opinion to shape the public's opinion of him. But hey, 10% is an easy target to make a scapegoat out of and take the fall for the most terrible anti-American president this nation has ever seen.
