Despite focusing on the economy, Obama's approval slides
CBS News ^ | August 15, 2013 | by Jake Miller

The number of Americans who approve of President Obama's handling of the economy has slid seven points since June to 35 percent, according to a new poll from Gallup.

During the same period, the number of Americans who approve of Mr. Obama's handling of taxes and the budget deficit dropped five points to 36 and 26 percent, respectively. The president' overall job approval rating dropped 3 points to 44 percent.

The drop comes after weeks of focus on the economy by the president, who has traveled around the country touting his efforts to jump start growth in the housing and job markets and laying blame about slow economic growth on the doorstep of Congress and congressional Republicans.

Focused on the economy? BS. Focused on finding ways to spend time with Reggie Love is more like it.

When one focuses the intellectual power of a few microwatts, one doesn’t get much heat at the focus point.

Face it, folks, the Obamadork is not smart.

At all.

He’s a quota baby.

You want smart African Americans?

Try Justice Thomas, Walter Williams, Thomas Sewall, Condi Rice...etc...etc.

“Despite focusing on the economy...”

Good gosh, you talk about butt licking journalistic malpractice! I would dearly love to personally deliver a punch in the mouth to the moron who wrote that headline.

When, where, how is Obama focusing on the economy? He gave an ‘effing speech so that’s focusing? Maybe golfing counts as focusing on the economy to this Obama lick spittle.

I hate the msm media, I really, really hate them.

The 'Rat shills in the so-called "news" media are shameless.

Do they really think Americans will forget that Hussein claimed he was "focused like a laser beam" five years ago?

It is like something out of Orwell.

Clinton had the dot com bubble; B0 has a domestic energy boon.

B0 is doing everything he can to obstruct production, while taking full credit for increased domestic supplies.

Mittens should have mopped the floor with B0 in the energy debate, but let him wriggle off the hook.

Economy? What economy? According the state-controlled "media", Barry the Rodeo Clown is the #1 issue that the "American people" are concerned about right now.

"Ban 'em!"

"Bring in the DOJ!!!"

Hrumpf! Hrumpf!

He can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time. Soetoro's base now contains only the latter group.

P.S. If I was ever a member of the former group "it was a long time ago in a place far, far away."

Deserves repeating and repeating, Obama is the culmination of Affirmative Action, passed along and promoted at every stage for being (1/2) black.

Obama has an automatic base of 24% on racism alone (Blacks). Then, you add the guilt-ridden liberal intellectuals and voila, 44%.

Debt at 23% higher than growth and the 44 percent can’t count up to 44 but they buy into anything Obama&media tell them.
As Obama calls it bringing in the sheep.

"... promoted at every stage for being (1/2) black."

I read a post on FR that broke down his lineage and he is supposedly part Arab.

I wonder how Ancestry.com would pick his lineage out.

...Hussein claimed he was "focused like a laser beam" five years ago?

Jobs and the economy are the first thing 0bama thinks about in the morning and the last thing he thinks about before he goes to bed.

A kool-aid liberal thinks "I know that is true because that's what Obama says he does. He works so hard."

A 100 million dollar vacation to Africa, topped by another vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, and various and sundry trips in between to California to see Jay Leno, Florida for Golf other places to campaign.

THIS IS FOCUSING on the economy.

Come on CBS don’t feed us this crap.
