Obama’s Bang-up Job Costs Him in the Polls


Apparently we Americans aren’t quite as dumb as our current president makes us look, judging by the latest approval numbers concerning Obama’s foreign policy.

On the back of the U.S. embassy debacles in Egypt and Libya and the unrest that only seems to be growing from there, more Americans are finding Obama a bit lacking on a global scale. Previously, he apparently had a 54% approval rate from the nation’s masses in his dealings with other countries; on Tuesday, however, that number had slipped to 49%.

Yes, that’s still way too high considering how many allies he’s insulted – Britain, Israel, France, etc. – since taking office and how many enemies he’s kowtowed to – China, Russia, Iran, etc. – at the same time. But it’s progress nonetheless, proving that despite our abysmal education system, Americans can still be taught.

We’ve certainly been schooled about Obama’s ability to do his job here at home. The economy stinks, and people are becoming more and more dependent on the government instead of their own smarts and initiative.

The Congressional Research Service recently released data indicating that the President’s policies – particularly his decision to alter the 1996 welfare reform law, which limited how much financial aid able-bodied adults without dependents could expect from the government – has led to a humongous increase in such adults on food stamps… 1.9 million in 2008 to 3.9 million in 2010.

It also has to be stated that, due to his belief that border security is unimportant, many of those people probably aren’t even American citizens. Essentially, we’re paying law-breaking foreigners to live here when we can’t even afford to take care of our own people.

Michigan alone has a government-estimated 4,000 noncitizens on its voter rolls (Can anybody say voter fraud?), and who knows how many who aren’t listed quite so prominently.

Not that Obama cares a bit though, since he’s too busy being buddy-buddy with the likes of Beyonce and Jay-Z for yet another star-studded fundraiser.

With all of that going on, it’s no wonder that Michelle Obama’s security refused to let a student, who was wearing a “Gators for McCain” t-shirt – in to one of her campaign stop speeches at the University of Florida.

It's all too obvious that this administration doesn’t care about details like America’s standing in the world, economic growth, individual responsibility, fiscal and national security, ethical or even legal political play, or bipartisan courtesy.

It and everybody associated with it is far too focused on itself to be bothered with anything or anyone else.
