Posted on 03/06/2013 4:37:17 AM PST by hcmama
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Less than two months into his second term, President Barack Obama's approval rating has dropped and Americans blame him and his fellow Democrats almost as much as his Republican opponents for a fiscal mess.
A Reuters/Ipsos online poll released on Wednesday showed 43 percent of people approve of Obama's handling of his job, down 7 percentage points from February 19.

How can 43% of the people still give him a favorable rating? It’s just incredible.
But Obama warned us the sequester would hurt us, he tried and tried to tell us but we just wouldnt listen.
Now the White House tours are shut down. This is hurting kids now.
Raise taxes NOW for the children, and do it for Gabby.
We are clearly not living int he same country of 20 years ago. On a side note, if you look at the comments section under any Yahoo! article, you wonder how Obama was ever eected in the first place!
Need I say more?
he only way I can suggest to help you understand omama worship is go to youtube.com and look as some videos of the German people worshiping Hitler in the 1030s Germany.
Massive voter fraud and stupid women who bought into the war on women put him over the top.
Almost as much? Almost as much???
Ras has him at 51% approval.
At this point, none of this matters. He won the election. There is no comfort in the fact that he is at 43%. It sure as Hell isn’t going to get him to change course.
THE GOOD NEWS is that the sequester grounded VP Bidens pricey govt plane. (gloat)
"AF Two is grounded for weekend trips starting Friday," one source said, the pricey military plane Biden uses to travel home, often to play golf at Fieldstone Golf Club, a private club. Biden also occasionally flies Air Force Two to Delaware during the week.
(NOTE: The veep's govt plane has also been spotted frequently in the Caribbean where his (cough) brother has a posh beachfront home).
Obama winged around the country like Chicken Little----cackling about the sky falling if he did not get another trillion dollars to throw away on 29 new federal fedral giveaways. (Obama's "turkey trot" was intended to increase Dem's midterm chances).
COMMENTATOR CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER OBSERVES---"Obama's alarming move---deliberately making the most painful and socially disruptive cuts possible (putting 2000 imprisoned illegal immigrants on the streets--- hardened criminals plotting crimes against law-abiding Americans). When the Nation was at the fiscal cliff, Obama cunningly split Republicans and got a slew of new taxes.
The sequester scam is intended to break the Repubs on spending..... to make cuts look as painful as possible, and let Republicans come crawling for a balanced deal----more back-breaking tax-hikes on the working class). In the past two years, House Republicans stopped cold Obamas left-liberal agenda. If Obama can break them now, the road is open to resume legislating Obama's expansive, entitlement-state liberalism proclaimed in his 2012 inaugural address.
But Obama cannot win if 'nothing bad really happens' with sequestration. Indeed, hed look both foolish and cynical for having cried wolf."
FR POSTED by ColdOne Politico44----Education Secretary Arne Duncan tried Friday to explain his claim that teachers have already been laid off because of sequestration all he'd meant to say was that teachers have been warned about layoffs tied to the federal spending cuts.
"Let me be really, really clear about this, we're getting caught in the details here: What I said was that teachers were getting notices. In the district we talked about, 110 teachers have gotten notices," he said during a question-and-answer session at Rolling Terrace Elementary School in Tacoma Park, Md., just outside the District of Columbia.
"Now I think there was a misinterpretation that they're being laid off tomorrow. That's not what I said, that's not what I meant." (Excerpt) Read more at politico.com ...
Duncan's another Susan "Benghazi" Rice---thrown a millstone by the Obama admin to wear on TV talk----to read the lines provided by DNC's Midterm Elections Committee.
One would hope a Cabinet Secy knows federal funding of teachers (firemen and cops) is miniscule---and would have nothing to do with sequestration (/sarc).
No matter how incompetent the punk is he still signs a helluvalotta paychecks.
Once you understand how folks like Reuters defines people, it becomes perfectly understandable. Hint: we don't count.
What does it matter? The illegitimate son of a communist whore is in our White House and he'll be there, working to destroy this country, for the next 4 years!
I agree with you, of course, but I felt some perspective was called for. It was still a skittles & unicorn perspective, but then, what isn’t, these days?
Not 4 years — 3 years and 10 1/2 months.
I’m keeping a daily countdown. There are 1,416 days until Friday, January 20, 2017
Hope I can hold out that long. BP has been through the roof ever since the election, have had an angioplasty and stent last month and still no relief on BP. Cardiologist and Nephrologist both working with me to reduce my pressure and no relief. I know it's probably psychological because I just can't stand to watch what's happening to my country. It's eating me up.
Yeh its the 43% you need to be terrified of.
His comments about the “poor Capitol janitors” being out of work had to get modified after it turned out none were laid off. So, he went with claiming they were being seriously harmed by losing their overtime. The Washington Post’s now reporting their overtime averages about six bucks a week.
Monday, Fox sent crews to the airports to shoot those “lines that have increased by fifty percent”, and couldn’t find any.
The sequestration is rapidly reminding me of the old CW song, “How’m I gonna miss you if you never leave”. If he set out to prove that you can cut two percent off the budget and we’ll all still survive, he couldn’t have done it better.
Nothing a war in Iran won’t overcome. Followed by the Russian nuking of the US and/or a crashed economy. They will be begging for dear readers after a comrade made disaster.
