"The President gets credit when things go well and blame when they don't, whether he had anything to do with it or not."

That is very true. Many on the Right blamed Obama for high gas prices as did many on the Left blamed Bush (similarly for high gas prices)for something that the president doesn't really have much direct control over. It comes with Incumbency. Now let's see how the Tea Party holds or does not hold their mouth when the Republicans attempt to do something very unfamiliar to them: ie govern!

Pretty funny that gas price relief after 4 long years of pain improves Obamas job approval.

What job did this? his foreign policy against Israel and Pro Iran?

None of the above -- he is a quit-and-stay President

"Obama job approval up 4 points, now 48% 01:08
Story highlights

New poll shows Obama's approval rating at 20-month high
Americans starting to feel positive about economy
More Americans still disapprove of Obama's job performance than approve

Improving views of the economy have helped hike President Barack Obama's approval rating to a 20-month high, a new CNN/ORC poll showed Tuesday, as markets climbed to record levels at news of an economy in overdrive."

ie Everyone who is not a member of your Tea Party? 0%

because everyone who doesn't believe like you is what you consider your enemy. From your description, the members who are not "illiterates, freeloaders, welfare recipients, gays, white apologists and the liberal media" are also not part of your Aryan Brotherhood and your clan (ie The Tea Party).

Dec 26-29 Poll

Approve 46%

Disapprove 49%

Significant recent change probably due to the pending GOP seating of SELF con-fessed, Con-victed Tea Party CON (both Con meanings, Conservative & Convict) Michael Grimm.

It will be a GRIMM Year for the Tea Party and his (their) "American" Values!

Maybe he'll be made Chairman of the Judiciary Committee so he can throw any reporters who ask troubling questions off the House Balcony???

and threaten to "break them like little boys" who don't drink Tea?

I was just wondering why "monsters" was an adjective you would choose to describe Tea Partiers. Seriously, did something personal happen to you?

I feel that way about PETA for good reason. One of them assaulted my family outside a circus, not realizing that the large, overprotective guy several steps behind my wife and two small kids was with them. I bounced his head off the windows of the arena until he peed himself then threw him down the street. Last I saw him, he was running away VERY quickly, and the cop standing at the corner who saw what happened nodded at me and very deliberately turned to watch traffic.

"On a similar note, more than 25% (about 29% according to Angus Reid Public Opinion poll) of Americans believe in the Loch Ness Monster."

"Passer cannot even read a poll correctly." SE3.5 As a lawyer but more than that, as a Conservative, you seemingly were taught to deny facts. I quoted 29% of Americans believe in the Loch Ness Monster according to the Angus Poll:

It seems that Fox has taught you their Poll tax ie to actually deny a fact and slander the person who gave the inconvenient fact and his factual statement to a Conservative point of skew.

My FACT was correct since you didn't like it you do the Tea Party slander and spout that I can't "read a poll correctly" because you disagree with the fact.

OK, when you read it, what IS the percentage that I got wrong:

29%?

15%?

0%?

or as usual Conservatives make up their own regardless of what any real source reads???

In the 21st Century, Conservatism's greatest enemy is unadulterated Truth and the sadest thing is that it didn't always used to be that way. The Tea Party spins truth faster than the Science they don't believe in says that the earth [in TP terms] allegedly spins on its axis.

I quote, "conservatism was associated with belief in monsters in Canada and Scotland, while liberalism was tied to monster belief in the U.S."

"Liberal Party voters in Canada were the least likely to believe in Bigfoot, Democrats in the U.S. were the most likely."

On a similar note, more than 25% (about 29% according to Angus Reid Public Opinion poll) of Americans believe in the Loch Ness Monster.

Proving that more people than one would expect like to believe in or identify positively with monsters!

That wasn't merely a "dog 'pound'". That was a mad-dog "Ton".

But what AC-302 doesn't realize is that by the time he's finished he'll have eight full years experience of being a dogcatcher. Though he may have missed a few mutts, the Tea Party can be thanked for the experience.

And that probably accounts for the occasional uptick in his approval numbers. Yeah, we're stuck with one incredibly incompetent president, but the upside is that he single-handedly managed to kick a whole lot of his fellow Dumbocrats out of office.

Obama's job approval number six years in are about what Bush's were six years in. I went to a presentation by my investment advisor last Tuesday where they always discuss the political climate. Their main premise is that the markets love gridlock!

OF COURSE NOT!

Then he would be directly supervising the Tea Party and have more authority over them than ever!


** OTOH he might be able to trim at least a local pack of mad dogs! **

. Pres. Obama's job approval rating sags when compared to NOTHING... but as soon as an EvilBushie opponent is named, his approvals will SOAR in comparison... just how much will depend on who is named...

. And Pres. Obama's Approval Rating will transfer to some extent onto the next Democrat candidate for president... also depending on who is chosen...

Not much movement, regardless of what he does. It appears from other polls that Obama's numbers are slipping in "deep blue" states where Democrats are getting discouraged at his leadership. Dem pols would rather have Michele Obama serve school lunches at their events than be seen with the President.

Passerand Maryanne,
After six years of Obama, it's getting pretty desperate to keep blaming either Bush or Clinton. It's like saying the current President is totally ineffective and without any responsibility. Everyone KNOWS that is not the case, but it certainly does raise questions about his effectiveness or lack thereof.

Funny how everyone seems to be hawkish on Syria now. Don't we ever do LONG-RANGE intelligence anymore? It would appear that our foreign policy consists of reacting to whatever other countries do to us and our allies, rather than anything constructively proactive.

Curious about the Russian natural gas dustup with Poland. Do we have anything on that?

Cheney and his sidekick, Bush tried for years to get Bin Laden with 'decisive' words like "Mission Accomplished". What part of his dead body is still elusive to you? Perhaps the GOP will sue Obama or impeach him for exceeding his authority in killing Bin Laden if they take over the Senate and totally lose all Cruz Control???
