Update II: We have been discussing the victory of Hillary supporter Martha Coakley in the comments. The Confluence has more news from Massachusetts – including an hypocritical John Kerry quote about the smashing of another “glass ceiling”. It’s too late for Kerry and for the late Ted Kennedy to make up for inflicting Obama on the nation and trashing Hillary and Hillary supporters.
Congratulations to Martha Coakley who we endorsed a while back.
Update: MoonOnPluto informs us that Marist has the boob at 46% approval.
This is the first time the president has lost majority support on this question since taking office. When Marist last asked this question in October, 53% of voters gave the president high marks.
We’ve taken our own advice and ignored the many, many, many, Obama publicity stunts.
There will be more Obama publicity stunts this week which we will not ignore.
The biggest publicity stunt of the week will be a trip to Copenhagen to grab an undeserved Nobel Peace Prize – as tens of thousands of American troops prepare for trips to Afghanistan. If you think Obama actually deserves the gift of a Peace Prize you are among only 26% of the country and you too are a boob and a fool:
“It’s probably a good thing for President Obama that the time difference from Norway means the Nobel presentation will occur while most Americans are sleeping and might get less coverage in the United States,” Brown added. “Two out of three Americans don’t think he deserves it compared to the quarter who do. Even among Democrats, only 49 percent think he deserves it, compared to 8 percent of Republicans and 19 percent of independent voters. As is the case with many questions related to the President there are wide gender and racial gaps.”
Last warning to boobs: The United States is shedding boobs faster than it is shedding jobs. The Mess-iah is no longer the amazing choirmaster of the celestial choirs leading transformational change powered by hope. No, the boob is increasingly seen as a boob:
Any slight bump in support Obama received coincident with his new Afghanistan policy proved to be very short-lived, as his approval rating returned to below the majority level by the weekend, and slipped further to 47% in Dec. 4-6 polling.
The boob is also an angry boob. Obama is phone calling those who call him a boob. It might be a stealth stimulus plan to get millions of dollars to phone companies if Obama calls everyone who calls him a boob. For now, Obama is mostly phone calling “stop calling me a boob” calls to congressmen who have called him a boob. Obama enabler John Conyers got a call:
According to the lawmaker, the president picked up the phone several weeks ago to find out why Conyers was “demeaning” him.
Obama’s decision to challenge Conyers highlights a sensitivity to criticism the president has taken on the left. Conyers’s critical remarks, many of which have been reported on the liberal-leaning Huffington Post, appear to have irritated the president, known for his calm demeanor.
Conyers, the second-longest-serving member of the House, said, “[Obama] called me and told me that he heard that I was demeaning him and I had to explain to him that it wasn’t anything personal, it was an honest difference on the issues. And he said, ‘Well, let’s talk about it.’”
Sitting in the Judiciary Committee’s conference room two days after Obama delivered his speech on Afghanistan, the 23-term lawmaker said he wasn’t in the mood to “chat.”
Thugs do not have a “calm demeanor”, they are just mean. Obama is secretly mean but Big Media pretends he is calm and nice. Big Media is protecting Obama and Americans are not fooled.
Conyers grinned and smirked when Obama stole Hillary delegates at the Rules and By-laws Committee meeting during the primaries. Conyers enabled Obama. Conyers is not happy with the change he hoped for.
“I’ve been saying I don’t agree with him on Afghanistan, I think he screwed up on healthcare reform, on Guantánamo and kicking Greg off,” Conyers said, referring to the departure of former White House counsel Greg Craig.
Conyers and Greg Craig stabbed Hillary in the back to get Obama an undeserved Nobel Peace Prize type job.
Conyers was the first member of the Congressional Black Caucus to endorse Obama over then-Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) for the 2008 Democratic nomination for president.
Conyers earlier this year noted that he spent most weekends in 2007 and 2008 on the campaign trail trying to get Obama elected.
“I did whatever was necessary to be done to win. I met with ministers, I met with unions, I met with lawyers, I met with community activists, I met with healthcare people,” Conyers explained in early April.
Conyers is now responsible for the boob’s actions. You bought it, now you pay for it:
The Michigan Democrat, a friend of liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, said he was “getting tired of saving Obama’s can in the White House,” after progressive Democrats were forced to vote for a healthcare bill that did not call for a “robust public option” and includes language opposed by abortion-rights supporters.
Things are so bad for the boob that Obama better start considering Sarah Palin as a running mate. After Big Media has pimped for their stooge and savaged Sarah Palin – Palin is catching up (Hillary Clinton long ago surpassed). The boob is not doing so well against Sister Sarah:
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, look what the pollsters just brought in.
A pair of new surveys revealing that President Obama is still declining and has hit a new low in job approval among Americans just 56 weeks after they elected him with a decided margin.
And — wait for it — Republican Sarah Palin is successfully selling a whole lot more than books out there on the road. Even among those not lining up in 10-degree weather to catch a glimpse of pretty much the only political celebrity the GOP has these days.
First, el jefe. Facing double-digit unemployment, rising spending, deficits and Afghan war casualties plus a keystone but stalled healthcare reform effort that caused a rare Sunday presidential visit to Capitol Hill, Obama recently fell below 50% job approval for the first time. [snip]
Obama's new Gallup Poll job approval number is 47%. Last month it was 53%.[snip]
The new CNN/Opinion Research Poll shows Palin now at 46% favorable, just one point below her fellow basketball fan.
Hated by Big Media Sarah Palin is rising and boob Obama, stooge of Big Media is fading. The thugish boob is increasingly seen for what he is:
The very same polarization now holds true for Obama, the fresh fellow from the old Chicago Democratic machine who was supposed to bring hope and change to a nation tired of divisive politics and the harsh partisan tone of Washington.
Fully 83% of Democrats approve of him, but only 14% of Republicans do.
Among independents, who provided the crucial winning boost for the Democratic ticket in November 2008, Obama's support has melted to 42% today, in large part over immense spending and deficit concerns.
And as political veteran Dave Cook points out over on the Vote blog, just since last month 3% of Obama's own Democrats have abandoned his ship, another 4% of Republicans and fully 7% of independents.
The boobs is Copenhagen are awarding the head boob a prize applauded by only the 26% of America’s population of current boobs.
But prizes and publicity stunts will not hide the fact that Obama is an angry boob – growing angrier and boobier by the minute.
