Obama Approval Index Now At ZERO% As Obama Ruins Country

The good thing is that more and more people are now beginning to realize that Barack Obama is leading their country off a cliff into an economic fiasco that we will likely never recover from; the bad news is that it may already bee too late.

Right now, we’ve got “czars” appointed by Obama that are running roughshod over entire industries with absolutely no congressional or people’s oversight whatsoever.  There are now FIFTEEN “czars” accountable to no one but Obama: a drug czar; an energy and environment czar; a health czar; an urban affairs czar; an economic czar; a regulatory czar; a technology czar; a government performance czar; a border czar, a WMD policy czar; an intelligence czar; a car czar; a Great Lakes czar; a Stimulus czar; and now a Cyber czar.  Again, Czars dominating industrustries and whole sections of the massive government infastructure who are accountable to no one but the president.

To quote J.R. Dieckmann who describes the new “cyber security czar” and in so doing denounces the entire mindset that creates them in the first place:

We have seen the tactic used by this administration over and over again — find or create a crisis, then violate the people’s liberties to deal with it. We saw it with the banking industry. We saw it with the mortgage industry. We’re seeing it with the auto industry and the energy industry, the global warming hoax, and many others. This is a president who wants the federal government to control everything of any significance. Controlling the Internet would be most helpful to him in forcing his Marxist agenda down the throats of the American citizens.

[By the way, even as Obama plunges the economy of the nation into ruin by pursuing the radical global warming agenda, a new NASA study confirms that – surprise – the sun, NOT man, has been responsible for warming.  Not that the obvious facts have ever mattered to liberals].

If you don’t think what Obama is doing is Marxism, as Dieckmann (and recently the Russian Pravda) describes it, try fascism.  Or insert your own blatantly un-American “-ism” (examples: totalitarianism, socialism).  Call it whatever you want: it’s an insult to everything America stands for.

CARACAS, June 2 (Reuters) – Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday that he and Cuban ally Fidel Castro risk being more conservative than U.S. President Barack Obama as Washington prepares to take control of General Motors Corp. […]

“Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right,” Chavez joked on a live television broadcast.

Maybe Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro think it’s a joke; I don’t think there’s anything funny about it.  I don’t think there’s anything funny about Obama’s using czars answerable only to him to shred the Constitution to set aside firmly established bankruptcy and contract law in order to make a political payoff to his union constituency.

Who did Obama appoint to run his nationalized Government Motors?  A 31-year old punk named Brian Deese who has never run anything but liberal political campaign propaganda:

Here’s the 411 of Mr. Deese’s “experience.”

THIS is the guy who “finds himself dismantling General Motors and rewriting the rules of American capitalism” (in the exact words of the New York Times)?  How do we not deserve to go the way of the Dodo bird when we do crap like this?

Liberals who used to decry Bush for his imperial tactics are an insult unto themselves; Bush’s “abuses of power” are to Obama’s what a pea-shooter is to a hydrogen bomb.  Obama is continuing the things that liberals have screamed the most about (including domestic eavesdropping which he once opposed; including the right to use enhanced interrogation methods should he deem it appropriate; including the use of rendition to send terrorist suspects to countries that will employ harsh interrogations; including the use of military commissions he himself condemned; including the right to hold people indefinitely without trial that he previously had demonized.  The ONLY difference between Bush and Obama on these issues is that Bush wasn’t a pompous, self-righteous, arrogant liar and demagogue, as Obama has now proven himself to be.  Meanwhile, on top of all the “abuses of power” liberals attacked Bush over, Obama has further taken it upon himself to abuse federal power like no one before him had ever even dreamed.

Bush opened the door to this crap; Barrack Hussein has essentially driven a suicide-bomber’s truck right through that door – and is in the process of driving his bomb into the very heart of our economy, our infrastructure, and our entire way of life.

And more and more people are FINALLY starting to become angrier and angrier about it.  Not enough to stop it.  But enough to give one hope that we’re not as insane as it has previously appeared.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

June 5, 2009

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 34% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-four percent (34%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of 0. That’s the highest level of strong disapproval and the lowest overall rating yet recorded (see trends).

The President’s ratings have slipped since General Motors filed for bankruptcy to initiate a new government bailout and takeover. Just 26% of Americans believe the GM bailout was a good idea and nearly as many support a boycott of GM products. It remains to be seen whether the dip in the President’s numbers is a temporary reaction to recent news or something more substantive.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates also available on Twitter.

Obama’s approval can only go down so far no matter what he does or how badly he fails.  If he were to so destroy the United States to such an extent that it became like North Korea – a people’s socialist utopia that has so little economic production that it’s people are in a constant state of famine, having so little energy it might as well be in the dark ages – I truly believe that 45% of Americans would still vote to re-elect him in 2012.  And with most of the mainstream media still continuing to sing his praises just as the North Korean media continues to fawn over their “Dear Leader” Kim Jong-Il.

It may literally be too late to save this country from impending economic collapse.  Already $1 out of every $6 in the US economy is coming from the government.  And if Obama is able to nationalize our health care – and a further one-sixth of the economy – we will find ourselves in a position from which we will never be able to recover.  History has proven that it is impossible to terminate federal bureaucracies once they have been created.

Steven Moore, the senior economics writer for the Wall Street Journal editorial page, summarizes what he calls “onslaught of the left” and concludes:

Yikes!  That’s a big dosage of economic cyanide the left wants America to swallow.   If this whole agenda goes through, in 2009 the federal budget will run the budget deficit to $2.2 trillion —  in a single year.  That’s more borrowing in twelve months than the federal government did in 200 years!

How do we possibly survive this crushing level of debt?  “Economic cyanide,” indeed.

Obama campaigned as this country’s “messiah” or savior.  But who will be able to save us from Obama, once his ruinous policies explode?

  1. Grace Nearing Says:

    Overall, 54% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance so far. Forty-six percent (46%) disapprove.

    These two sentences were omitted from the Rasmussen excerpt you provided.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    I didn’t cite the entire article, but merely the first several paragraphs. You’ve included the section, and that’s fine.

    Three big points from the article: a) Obama’s approval numbers are at their lowest point; b) his strong disapproval is as high as his strong approval (hence the zero); c) Two out of every three Americans strongly disapproved of what he did with GM.

    Obama’s numbers – which were NOT historically higher than other presidents (including George Bush and particularly including Jimmy Carter), are going down.

  3. Michael Eden Says:

    Thought I’d also add this:

    “BRUSSELS – Conservatives raced toward victory in some of Europe’s largest economies Sunday as initial results and exit polls showed voters punishing left-leaning parties in European parliament elections in France, Germany and elsewhere.

    Some right-leaning parties said the results vindicated their reluctance to spend more on company bailouts and fiscal stimulus amid the global economic crisis.”

    Don’t think what liberals are doing here is going over well.

  4. James D. Runyon Says:

    What is wrong with the REPUBLICANS? Do we just sit by and watch, or offer weak responces? This not going away, even if his ratings tank & the general public is sick of this, we must have something to offer!

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    The very worst thing the Republicans did was “play politics” in 2006 and not demand a vote on the effort to regulate Fannie and Freddie. Instead, they bowed down to the Democratic threat to filibuster and backed away from any attempt to regulate the housing finance industry.

    What would have happened in 2008 had Republicans been able to point to such a vote – when Democrats ON THE RECORD stood in the way of regulations that would have helped prevent the economic meltdown?

    Republicans need to have faith in their ideas. They need to realize that what the Democrats are doing will ultimately FAIL HUGE and go after it in a way that the revisionist history on the left can’t erase.

    An interesting aspect to your question is your premise: that Republicans should “offer” something rather than just be against what the Democrats are doing. Why? What did the DEMOCRATS offer for the last eight years? What was THEIR solution? All they offered was demonization and demagoguery!

  6. frank grimes Says:

    What party led the country into this whole mess again? I completely forgot with all your double speak. Don´t forget that public healthcare does not cripple other countries all around Europe. A WMD csar? who invented populalrised the phrase WMD? “Bush wasn’t a pompous, self-righteous, arrogant liar and demagogue” if you truly believe that I think you should have yourself tested for any sign of brain activity

  7. Michael Eden Says:

    That’s a good question, Grimey. Who REALLY Exploded Your Economy, Liberals Or Conservatives? Too bad you came to the wrong answer.

    With eyes wide open as to what failures the Democrats and Obama have been, why don’t you reconsider why the economy collapsed in the first place?

    If you want to maintain that Bush – and not the Democrat controlled House of Representatives and the Democrat controlled Senate – was responsible for the economic collapse, YOU TELL ME WHY. AND BE VERY SPECIFIC.

    Unemployment was 4.7% when the Democrats took over Congress in 2006. It was 4.7% when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid assumed their respective majority leadership positions. They have been in control of Congress ever since: and what is unemployment at now?

    Other than the fact that you are a naked ideologue, on what basis do you blame the economic meltdown on Republicans when DEMOCRATS WERE IN CONTROL OF THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE AND PRESIDED OVER THE FAILURE???

    The Democrat Party/lamestream media narrative is that Bush was responsible for the economic meltdown because it “happened during his watch.” There was never once a mention that it happened during Nancy Pelosi’s and Harry Reid’s watch. Because that particular narrative doesn’t fit their leftist agenda.

    I can very easily explain why Democrats were the primary cause of the 2008 collapse.

    I can even give you the story in video, namely an 11 minute video titled “Burning Down the House: What Caused Our Economic Crisis?” Or how about watching John Stossel explain what happened in a 5 1/2 minute ABC 20/20 piece?

    Do you really want to know the true origins of the financial collapse? Then please do a little reading and start learning. The mortgage market collapsed in 2008 because of its biggest player: Fannie Mae, which held some 60% of the mortgages. And Democrats were entirely behind the policies that led to the collapse of Fannie Mae and the private mortgage industry that bought Fannie’s mortgage-backed securities. Investors were falsely led to believe that the bonds they were buying were guaranteed implicitly by the federal government.

    Here are the words of Mortimer Zuckerman – a liberal, an Obama supporter, a billionaire, a trustee of the Council on Foreign Relations, and the owner of a couple major news sources:

    What about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that got there with the support of the Democrats in congress. That’s what kicked off the great housing bubble; that’s what started this whole thing rolling down the hill. Did they ever talk about that kind of excess in the congress? No…..this isn’t something that is just due to the “wall street community”.

    George Bush called for reform of the housing finance market 17 times in 2008 alone — and Democrats ignored him. They had been blocking his every effort to prevent disaster ever since Bush first tried to do so beginning in 2003. At that time, Democrat Barney Frank led the effort to block reform, saying:

    These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. ”The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

    George Bush and John McCain repeatedly warned that if we didn’t address the situation, we would suffer a financial collapse.

    John McCain wrote an urgent letter in 2006 that read:

    These are entities that have demonstrated over and over again that they are deeply in need of reform. For years I have been concerned about the regulatory structure that governs Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—known as Government-sponsored entities or GSEs—and the sheer magnitude of these companies and the role they play in the housing market. OFHEO’s report this week does nothing to ease these concerns.

    In fact, the report does quite the contrary. OFHEO’s report solidifies my view that the GSEs need to be reformed without delay. I join as a cosponsor of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, S. 190, to underscore my support for quick passage of GSE regulatory reform legislation. If Congress does not act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.

    John McCain signed another letter that ended with these words:

    With the fiscal challenges facing us today (deficits, entitlements, pensions and flood insurance), Congress must ask itself who would actually pay this debt if Fannie or Freddie could not?

    Substantial testimony calling for improved regulation of the GSEs has been provided to the Senate by the Treasury, Federal Reserve, HUD, GAO, CBO, and others. Congress has the opportunity to recommit itself to the housing mission of the GSEs while at the same time making sure the GSEs operate in a manner that does not expose our financial system, or taxpayers, to unnecessary risk. It is vitally important that Congress take the necessary steps to ensure that these institutions benefit from strong and independent regulatory supervision, operate in a safe and sound manner, and are primarily focused on their statutory mission. More importantly, Congress must ensure that the American taxpayer is protected in the event either GSE should fail. We strongly support an effort to schedule floor time this year to debate GSE regulatory reform.

    And they DID fail. They massively, massively failed.

    Only about a month before the whole system crashed, Barney Frank went on the record and said this:

    REP. BARNEY FRANK, D-MASS.: “I think this is a case where Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, that they are not in danger of going under. They’re not the best investments these days from the long-term standpoint going back. I think they are in good shape going forward.”

    They sure were, you fat, miserable, loathsome, obscene, disgusting, slobbering, lying toad.

    The top three headlines under the Google search “Fannie Mae collapse”:

    Freddie, Fannie Scam Hidden in Broad Daylight

    Financial Markets Reeling from Fannie & Freddie Collapse and Evitable Government Bailout

    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: Too big not to fail

    But as our economy exploded along with the boondoggle housing finance market artificially sustained by Fannie and Freddie, the Democrats demagogued the Republicans. And the lamestream media duly reported it as though it were all the liberal’s-god-socialist-big-government’s truth.

    So to answer your question, it was DEMOCRATS who led us into this mess. Just as it is DEMOCRATS who are now making the mess far worse.

    As to your point about socialist health care in socialist Europe, if you had so much as a freaking clue about reality, you would have looked at the European economy over the last thirty years, and compared it to ours. We were like eagles soaring over a chicken compared to Europe. And quite frankly the ONLY reason that we are starting to come down to earth in relation to Europe is because our turd-in-chief passed his massive, costly, useless, corrupt porkulus – over and against the wising-up-fast Europeans’ warnings – as the facts now reveal.

    And looking at your “WMD” rant (which is a military acronym for “weapons of mass destruction,” rather than anything that Bush invented – and in fact it goes back at least to the Reagan years, because I was aware about the term when I served in the 1980s), I can only imagine how completely still the needle would be if you had yourself tested for brain activity.
