Zogby Report Card: Obama has lost our trust
Washington Examiner ^ | October 26, 2013 | PAUL BEDARD |

Posted on 10/27/2013 1:05:07 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama has put himself in a horrible position with the failed Obamacare website and indefensible spying on foreign allies.

"There is no positive spin for the president this week. A weak jobs report and record numbers out of the workforce.

“Plus the worst imaginable rollout of a website in the history of website rollouts. Am I correct that the U.S. paid $600 million for [its] Affordable [Care Act] web presence? At least the $400 hammers and $600 toilet seats worked, I presume.

“Listening in on German Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone calls? That isn't a violation of privacy, it is an affront to all decency. And now the Saudis are angry at us too. I am not sure how Mr. Obama wins back trust from our key allies.

“While his polling numbers are not horrible this week, his life certainly is."

You’ve got three years to go. Americans have a lot of patience....but waiting three more years for something to happen? We might as well be waiting for the NCAA to fix up the bowl process.

The reason I claim that America is going down the tubes, and since I am an expat, I get plenty of FReeper flack for it, is that Obumbo is still popular. Rasmussen today shows him at 51%.
In a sane world, Obumbo would not have 25%, and that would be only from hard core Commies.

“Rasmussen today shows him at 51%.”

And I’m convinced there are people who are polled who hate the guy but are afraid to tell the truth for fear of being labeled racist.

Not a single pollster has ever called me on what I think of the rat bastard!

“.....WHAT IS NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder)?

.... An all-pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behaviour), need for admiration or adulation and lack of empathy, usually beginning by early adulthood and present in various contexts. Five (or more) of the following criteria must be met:

Feels grandiose and self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents to the point of lying, demands to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequalled brilliance (the cerebral narcissist), bodily beauty or sexual performance (the somatic narcissist), or ideal, everlasting, all-conquering love or passion

Firmaly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions)

Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation -or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious (narcissistic supply).

Feels entitled. Expects unreasonable or special and favourable priority treatment. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her expectations

Is “interpersonally exploitative”, i.e., uses others to achieve his or her own ends

Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with or acknowledge the feelings and needs of others

Constantly envious of others or believes that they feel the same about him or her

Arrogant, haughty behaviours or attitudes coupled with rage when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted....”

That could be part of it, but don’t forget, he WAS reelected.

From your link:

.....”Antisocial Personality Disorder Overview

“Antisocial Personality Disorder results in what is commonly known as a Sociopath. The criteria for this disorder require an ongoing disregard for the rights of others, since the age of 15 years. Some examples of this disregard are reckless disregard for the safety of themselves or others, failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors, deceitfulness such as repeated lying or deceit for personal profit or pleasure, and lack of remorse for actions that hurt other people in any way. Additionally, they must have evidenced a Conduct Disorder before the age of 15 years, and must be at least 18 years old to receive this diagnosis.

People with this disorder appear to be charming at times, and make relationships, but to them, these are relationships in name only. They are ended whenever necessary or when it suits them, and the relationships are without depth or meaning, including marriages. They seem to have an innate ability to find the weakness in people, and are ready to use these weaknesses to their own ends through deceit, manipulation, or intimidation, and gain pleasure from doing so.

They appear to be incapable of any true emotions, from love to shame to guilt. They are quick to anger, but just as quick to let it go, without holding grudges. No matter what emotion they state they have, it has no bearing on their future actions or attitudes.

They rarely are able to have jobs that last for any length of time, as they become easily bored, instead needing constant change. They live for the moment, forgetting the past, and not planning the future, not thinking ahead what consequences their actions will have. They want immediate rewards and gratification. There currently is no form of psychotherapy that works with those with antisocial personality disorder, as those with this disorder have no desire to change themselves, which is a prerequisite. No medication is available either. The only treatment is the prevention of the disorder in the early stages, when a child first begins to show the symptoms of conduct disorder.”......

Obama has lost our trust

Obama has not lost my trust because he has never failed to fulfill every expectation I, and many other FReepers, held concerning the kind of man Barack really is.

We here on FreeRepublic knew that he was a full-blooded Marxist, a man with deep and sympathetic ties to the Muslim world, a man who detested America as it was legally and traditionally constituted, a man who despised much of the American Constitution, a man with associations which were worse than dubious. We feared that he would terribly damage the American economy, that he would exploit the "great recession" to impose his brand of Marxism on America disguised as "transformation."

Not a single one of these characteristics has been contradicted.

What has disappointed but not greatly surprised is a generalized tendency among the media to fail to characterize Obama for what he is: a radical Marxist. What has especially disappointed and to some degree surprised is a particularized tendency among Republican politicians including both John McCain and Mitt Romney to attack Barack Obama for the radical Marxist that he is.

Obama has done nothing prior to his election to earn our trust. His biography, his Marxist even communist associations, his writings, his public comments, his employment history, his decades long affiliation with Reverend Wright, his intimate association with American terrorists, his roots in Islam, his attachment to corruption in Chicago, his corrupt ascent to power by discrediting his opponents, all told us and should have told a world not blinded by reverse racism that this was a man unfit for the highest office in the world.

His actions in office since his inauguration with only a couple of exceptions are completely consistent with the description of his character outlined above. His tyrannical extension of executive power is consistent with his disdain for the Constitution. His exploitation of race is consistent with communist dogma. His shameless cronyism is consistent with this pattern of every communist ruler known to history. His distortion of government to reward his friends and punish his enemies, for example with the IRS, is typical of communists. Obamacare is a classic example of a tyrannical penetration of the whole of society in the name of the greater good that one sees in totalitarian communist regimes.

The list can go on and on. What is disappointing is the timidity of Republicans to call a communist a communist.

Perhaps our trust in the Republicans is what is being lost.

Summary:

obama has totally lost our trust and the trust of world leaders, but he’s a great guy and I approve of him. I’d vote for him again if he were running for president.

Insanity.

Yes, I did hear that Rasmussen was no longer to be trusted.
It is logical that the Marxist would buy out, or take over, any and all forms of media, including polls.
As you know, it has been my theme for quite some time here on FR.
“The Marxist now control all of education and the media.”
America has been caught up in the perfect storm.

The reason this is important is that the loss of confidence is so bad that even a Muslim cannot provide enough cover for the Muslim Sympathizer in Chief.

I know it's wishful thinking, but here's hoping we are witnessing the collapse of evil upon itself.

What is really shocking is if Obama ran for a third term, he would win. Doesn’t matter if he ran against a Ronald Reagan or a Mitt Romney, he would win.

The propaganda ministry of the MSM is so effective, plus the electorate has changed so much over the last 20 years, the hill for GOP presidential candidates has gotten very steep to climb.

What is Kim Kardashian doing today? That is what a majority of Americans want to know.

What is disappointing is the timidity of Republicans to call a communist a communist.

True but what explains the timidity of the general public calling a communist who is an elected official a communist? Conservatives are called conservatives by anyone and everyone but it seems the fear of death keeps anyone from calling any American communist in a political office a communist yet we do so of such people in other countries as well as the local populations calling them for what they are.

Just who and how is this fear instilled into the fabric of our society.

We read and hear many descriptions of American politicians and their political leanings and yet, with hard evidence of deeds and sometimes self admission, none are described as communists...........why?

He killed hundreds of people with Fast & Furious and then covered it up.

He allowed America to be attacked by hostile foreign forces and forbad American forces to protect American lives. He has threatened anyone with imprisonment who tells what they witnessed.

He used the IRS to oppress Americans he doesn't like.

He lied to Americans about his so-called health care laws.

He has used the Justice Department to selectively enforce laws in favor of his favored people.

And people are upset about a web site?
