Distrust Sinking Obama
Fox News ^ | June 13, 2013 | Chris Stirewalt

Posted on 06/15/2013 5:53:06 PM PDT by george76

-- 56 percent of voters believe Obama did not try to rescue the doomed garrison in Benghazi, Libya because he didn’t want to risk his re-election.

-- 62 percent agree that Obama’s NSA phone surveillance constitutes “an unacceptable and alarming invasion of privacy rights.”

-- 63 percent believe that Obama’s Justice Department seized reporter’s records for political reasons, compared to 29 percent who take the administration’s national security argument to be true.

-- 68 percent believe that the White House isn’t telling the truth about the targeting of the president’s political enemies by the IRS. Just 24 percent believe the White House line that Team Obama neither directed nor was aware of the targeting.

-- 74 percent said that when it comes to openness and transparency, the Obama administration is either the same or worse than George W. Bush’s administration.

74%? So, what does that prove? This was always true, and yet the idiots still re-elected him.

The alphabet networks will dismiss all of this and say that FOX has a conservative bias. These scandals are scaring the Democratic Party leadership and don’t think they’re more than a little concerned about the congressional elections a year and a half from now.

I’m not sure those numbers are accurate; rather, I’m not sure the statements containing the numbers are accurate. People might very well believe those things, but do they attach Obama to them at all? Do they connect Obama to Bengahzi, or the other various scandals? Do they know Obama=White House? Or Administration? I have my doubts.

What matters now is how Congress views him...not the voters.

If there are no strong voices in Congress to bring down the traitor...his popularity with the general public is irrelevant.

What we in the hinterland see going on (which is probably pretty accurate) is not what the inside the beltway folks see. And until the next election, we in the hinterland are just not important...and Washington knows it.

As an additional point, Obama is just the front man (though he would argue that point).

We are in the middle of a coup wherein the Communists are making their move.

In the final analysis...after perhaps millions are dead...Communism will once again lose.

Communism just doesn't work...but it's adherents will keep trying to make it work until judgment day comes (which might not be so far in the future after all).

If the liberal media can believe that if they tell a lie big enough and often enough people will believe it, certainly we can let Fox tell the truth (who’s gaining more and more viewership), big enough and often enough that perhaps some minds will be changed. What’s left… sit at home and cry in your beer and accept defeat? Not me.

51% would vote for the Marxist again if another election were held today. 100% of those 51% think they’re not racist and the Marxist is an “incredibly intelligent” black man.

“The alphabet networks will dismiss all of this and say that FOX has a conservative bias.”
___________________________________________________

Of course they will, as they all lean towards a Marxist/Leninist/Communist ideology. They have NO tolerance for America as it was founded.
As I have posted a number of times, the Communist knew that the keys to America would be in controlling education and media. That is why you have 50+ percent of the public that is now brain dead and clueless.
I think FOX is as “fair and balanced” as one could want.
They have their Commie clowns such as fatso Beckel and Colmes.
FOX, however, can not save America. It would take an act of God, but he is not talking.

How is he “sinking”? How does that affect him at all? He’s got at least half the GOPe ready to flood the nation with illegal foreign invader voters, he’s got no chance of being indicted or removed from power even if he starts sending goon squads to drag opponents to the camps....

how is he sinking?

just some ephemeral polling numbers that a good MSM blitz will fix?

Soon millions of Americans will open their health-insurance bills and find they’ve doubled under ObamaCare. Will Obama’s approval numbers still remain in the 50% range then?

Barack Obama is like a snake-oil salesman who sells a cure for baldness but says its effects won’t be felt until a date four years in the future. Everything will be fine for the four years of waiting, but when the snake-oil salesman’s customers find that their bald heads are still completely bald on the promised date, and worse, have boils all over them, that’s when the snake-oil salesman will be driven out of town on a rail.

Low-information voters by definition don’t have enough information to understand what’s about to happen to them under ObamaCare. But when they find out they’ve been defrauded, things will never be the same for Obama and his Democratic supporters.

I’ll be really surprised if he is ever held accountable for anything. Fact is, he has outlived his usefulness and especially if the rats can’t regain the house, he’ll be gone after that. Maybe not out of office but similar to what we have now until his term is up. Golf and denials and the press in his back pocket. His only job will be to help set the stage for Hillary or Christie. The next brotherhood approved canidate.

Virginia Moseley was the senior Washington producer at ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Now Moseley is moving on CNN to become their deputy bureau chief in DC.

Moseley married to Obama’s Deputy Secretary of State. In the reports on leftist sites about Moseley’s moving to CNN, not one of them mentions that conflict of interest.

Former BJ Bill Clinton hack and current ABC propagandist George Stephanopoulos who works with ABC News reporter Claire Shipman just so happens to be married to White House Spokesman Jay Carney. It was Moseley who recruited Stephanopoulos to ABC. Moseley’s sister also works at the White House for the corrupt Obama regime.

Finally, both Stephanopoulos and Shipman work with ABC News ‘Business Reporter’ Bianna Golodryga. She is married to Obama’s first Budget Director Peter Orszag. Oh, what a tangled web we weave. This is like a big media/Obama circle jerk.

From 1986 to 1989, Nides was chief of staff of Rep. Tony Coelho (D—CA-15). He was next chief of staff of Rep. Tom Foley (D—WA-5) from 1989 to 1993, and in 1994, he served as chief of staff of United States Trade Representative Mickey Kantor.

Nides joined Fannie Mae as Senior Vice President of Human Resources in 1998, holding this position until 2001. He was then Chief Administrative Officer of Credit Suisse USA from 2001 to 2004. From 2005 to 2010, he was Chief Operating Officer of Morgan Stanley.

Even before he graduated high school, Nides understood the power of connections. As a high-school senior, he enlisted two White House staffers, Michael Berman and Richard Moe, both of whom had come from his hometown, to help convince Vice President Walter Mondale to speak at his high-school graduation. Nides went on to work with Mondale on his 1984 presidential campaign, where he met current Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D).

In Washington, Nides worked closely with then-Speaker Tom Foley (D-Wash.) and with Bill Clinton’s U.S. Trade Representative, Mickey Kantor. Nides has a particularly tight connection with one former boss, Tony Coelho.

 
Nides has been a generous political donor: since 1998, he has handed over more than $100,000 to political campaigns.

He was also a bundler for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign, for which he raised more than $100,000.

The State Department did rank 3rd in the 2012 list of best places to work in the federal government and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was widely admired inside the department for proactively addressing the issue of work-life balance during her tenure.

But the maternity leave rules across the government are still substandard, so Nides created his own family leave policy in his office, which included allowing staffers to create a bank of leave and share it with their colleagues. He also urged new parents not to rush back to work and made sure to give them schedules upon their return that eased their transition.

“My view was, I’ve got two kids and a working wife, and I really feel like these guys have got to have a break to do the work. I was very liberal,” he said. “It’s hard enough to balance making money, having a career, and trying to be a decent parent. It’s hard as shit, quite frankly.”

You have to consider the effects of a lot less disposable income coming soon via zerocare.

People won’t be able to take up food stamps as a defensive measure. Household discretionary spending will drop to the amount the insurance soars.

RATS cannot, will not survive this in ‘14.

The low information voters who work saw their taxes go up and it had no effect. When their rates go up, the propaganda machine kicks in blaming the evil insurance companies. Obama offers the low information voters a govt program of real cheap insurance via single payer, and they all will love him again.

No political opposition of merit, control of the propaganda outlets, control of the policing power, and control of the snooping capability against opponents. Obama is in the catbird seat.

He is in power until January of 2017.

If the Rats keep the Senate and get back the House in the 2014 Elections, he will be in Absolute Power until January 2017.

All this talk about his Approval Ratings is a waste of time. It’s a day late and a 2012 Election short.
