NBC News To Obama: ‘The Public Is Saying, ‘Hey, Buddy, Your Presidency Is Over.”

June 19, 2014

The only place NBC’s Chuck Todd has it wrong is when he says Obama is in any way, shape or form the American public’s “buddy.”  Because Barack Obama is no decent American’s “buddy.”

Understand: according to an NBC poll, fully 54% of the American people believe that Obama cannot lead and get the job done.  Which is a larger margin than what he was elected by in either election (in 2008 he won with 52.9% of the vote and in 2012 he won with 51.1% – and you’d have thought he’d won a landslide by the way the fascist has governed).  And if that isn’t revealing enough, realize that sixty-one percent of independents say that Obama is a useless turd who cannot lead the country or get the job done.

Obama’s poll numbers are now WORSE than post-Katrina Bush’s.  That’s a hell of a job you’ve done, Obami.  In fact, over the last two years, Obama’s poll numbers are now worse than ANY president’s since Nixon’s.  His is THE worst presidency in HISTORY, bar NONE.

Chuck Todd: Public Is Telling Obama ‘Your Presidency Is Over’ In New NBC Poll
By Kyle Drennen | June 18, 2014 | 11:50

Appearing on Wednesday’s NBC Today, chief White House correspondent and political director Chuck Todd reported on the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing President Obama’s poll numbers taking a nose dive and made this stunning declaration: “This is as if the public is saying, ‘Hey, buddy, your presidency is over. You may not believe it is, but your ability to lead and convince us that you have the right policies anymore, we’re not listening.'” [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

That observation was prompted by co-host Savannah Guthrie highlighting: “Let’s show the poll number you call the dagger. ‘Can the President lead and get the job done?’ 54% say no.”

In a prior question about the poll, Guthrie noted how the public was evenly divided – 50% to 50% – on whether Obama was a competent president. Todd replied: “And compare it to President Bush. He’s [Obama’s] actually in a worse situation. The Obama administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration was post-Katrina.”

Despite all of the devastating news for the President in the new poll, which was released Tuesday afternoon, all of the evening newscasts – including NBC Nightly News – skipped the results.

On Wednesday, only Today covered the poll, it wasn’t mentioned on ABC’s Good Morning America or CBS This Morning.

Guthrie wondered if Obama’s unpopularity would “spell success for Republicans in the midterms.” Todd tried to find a silver lining for Democrats: “Republican numbers are worse now than they were four years ago. It isn’t translating. The public really is angry at both parties….So it’s mildly good news for Democrats, maybe they can separate themselves from the drag that President Obama is.”

Wrapping up the exchange, Todd explained another part of the poll that showed a dip in support for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election: “This is a reminder, she’s not – you know, some in the media treat this as if it’s a coronation. That President Clinton is an automatic in 2016. This is the voters saying no, she’s not.”

Here is a full transcript of the June 18 segment:

7:09 AM ET

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: Well, as President Obama weighs his decision here, Dick and Liz Cheney are out with a new op-ed this morning blasting the Obama administration’s positions during wartime, saying, quote, “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

We also have a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll out this morning. And for that we turn to Chuck Todd, NBC’s chief White House correspondent and political director. And Chuck, I know you’ve got some information about what options the President is considering with regard to Iraq.

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: President’s Next Move on Iraq; Meets Congressional Leaders to Discuss Options]

CHUCK TODD: Well, there’s one option that’s off the table at this point, and that is air strikes, and here’s why. They just don’t have the targets. This is not a big army that you’re going after in ISIS. This is more like targeting Al Qaeda in Yemen, which means this is going to mean special forces. This is going to mean drones, very tactical strikes. There’s no way they can somehow bring in fighter jets.

GUTHRIE: Let’s get to NBC’s poll, because foreign policy, which for many, many years was a strong suit of the President’s in your polls, is now suddenly tanking.

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: The President and the Polls; Dip in Ratings on Leadership]

TODD: It is. It’s cratering. I mean, if you think about it, let’s go back to September, Syria. Then you have the crisis in Ukraine and then you had the situation with the Bergdahl trade, then we can talk about the Iranian negotiations, we can talk about the Middle East flaring up, and now the situation with Iraq. Everything is a negative, and these are now creating a situation, lowest ever, lowest job rating, lowest approval rating among foreign policy.

GUTHRIE: Let’s show competence, that says the President – people who think the President is competent, fifty [percent], incompetent, fifty [percent].

TODD: Well, this is a situation of the VA. And compare it to President Bush. He’s [Obama’s] actually in a worse situation. The Obama administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration was post-Katrina. That’s VA, that’s health care, and foreign policy.

GUTHRIE: Let’s show the poll number you call the dagger. “Can the President lead and get the job done?” 54% say no.

TODD: And this is what’s amazing here. This is as if the public is saying, “Hey, buddy, your presidency is over. You may not believe it is, but your ability to lead and convince us that you have the right policies anymore, we’re not listening.” That’s what that poll question says. That’s the most dangerous poll question in this – in this survey for the President.

GUTHRIE: So does this spell success for Republicans in the midterms coming up?

TODD: Well, it’s not been a seesaw for some reason. The President’s numbers are worse now than they were four years ago, right before the Republican tsunami of 2010. But Republican numbers are worse now than they were four years ago. It isn’t translating. The public really is angry at both parties. We saw it with Eric Cantor. That’s one of the reasons he got tossed out. So this isn’t an automatic translation. So it’s mildly good news for Democrats, maybe they can separate themselves from the drag that President Obama is.

GUTHRIE: You still see a real Tea Party, non-Tea Party split in the GOP.

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: Tea Party Influence Growing?; Poll: Schism Withing GOP Over Role]

And let me ask you about Hillary Clinton. Because you took a poll, basically, “Would you vote for Hillary?” to a general electorate. And the numbers you got were, saying yes, 38%. No, 37%. And maybe, twenty-three [percent].

[ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: The Politics of Hillary; Poll: Clinton Favorability Down]

TODD: Well, and this is a reminder, she’s not – you know, some in the media treat this as if it’s a coronation. That President Clinton is an automatic in 2016. This is the voters saying no, she’s not. She’s an automatic with Democrats. Her numbers with Democrats are better now than they’ve ever been. Much better than they were eight years ago. With the rest of the public, it’s another question.

GUTHRIE: Alright, Chuck Todd, thank you very much.

By the way, tomorrow on Today we will sit down with Secretary of State John Kerry to talk more about these U.S. options in Iraq, the possibility of cooperating with Iran, and much more.

Frankly, as bad as I believed Obama would be, I nevertheless never thought that even the leftist propagandists at NBC would turn on him.

Let’s call this moment yet another “I TOLD you so!” alert.  Because I’ve told you over and over again with facts to back it up each time that Barack Hussein Obama is the worst curse that has ever plagued this nation.  God is DAMNING this nation into extinction because of this baby-murdering sodomy worshiper.

God damn America drags on.  But not for much longer: because we’re going to catastrophically collapse and implode and send the world into a depression and a crisis that will result in the coming of the Antichrist and the Mark of the beast.  And Democrats will cheer and take the mark and ultimately burn in hell forever and ever.

CBS Poll: Only 40% Approve Of Obama On Economy

July 14, 2010

Obama keeps talking about “moving forward.”  But only an increasingly shrinking minority of Americans want to go anywhere with him.

From CBS:

CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto.


Economists have declared the economic recession over largely over, but most Americans don’t share their optimism, and they are increasingly blaming President Obama for their money woes.Mr. Obama’s approval rating on the economy has tumbled five percentage points from last month, according to a new CBS News poll, with just 40 percent of those polled expressing full confidence in his actions.

More than half of those questioned (54 percent) said they disapproved of Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy. Last month, 45 percent approved. The drop in approval has been seen mostly among independents, just 35 percent of whom now say they approve.

Three in four Americans think the effects of the recession will linger for another two years or more. Just 20 percent said they believed the recession’s aftereffects would continue to weigh on their lives and livelihoods for another year or less. The public is generally more pessimistic now than in February.

The national unemployment rate continues to hover just beneath the 10 percent mark, and it is estimated that many more Americans are underemployed – meaning they have given up looking for a full-time job, or are working fewer hours than they would like.

The poll shows widespread concern among Americans when it comes to employment. Seven in ten Americans rated the job market in their area “fair” or “very bad”; only a quarter of those polled described it as “good”.

There did appear to be some optimism that the job market would improve over the next year — but not a lot. While 28 percent said they expected the job market in their area to get better over the next year, twice as many — 56 percent — said it would likely remain the same. Another 14 percent predicted even fewer available jobs in the coming years.

CBS News Poll Database


This poll was conducted among a random sample of 966 adults nationwide, interviewed by telephone July 9-12, 2010. Phone numbers were dialed from random digit dial samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups is higher.

Gee, Obama.  So much for your “summer of recovery.”  Got any other crap-sandwich assurances for us?

You can’t lie and weasel your way out of this one.  You’ve kept giving us “Are you going to trust me, or are you going to trust your lying eyes?” rhetoric.  And, well, we’re finally starting to open our eyes.

More than 70% of Americans say that the job market stinks in their area.  You promised us hopey-changey.  But more and more Americans are giving up even bothering to look for work in your Obamanomics nonsense.

As the job market in the United States continues to shrink more and more Americans are simply giving up hope. This is great news for the unemployment rate but for many jobless it leads to breadlines and homelessness.

The jobs are not coming back! The United States job market must add 125,000 new jobs each month just to keep up with young people entering the jobs market. For “recovery” to happen the United States would need to add closer to 250,000 jobs monthly. This is simply not going to happen. […]

The unemployment rate dropped from 9.7 percent to 9.5 percent, the lowest level since July 2009. But it fell because 652,000 people gave up on their job searches and left the labor force. People who are no longer looking for work aren’t counted as unemployed.

Even your very own Vice President is saying that you’re not going to do a damn thing to bring back the eight million jobs that have been lost, Barry Hussein:

Vice President Joe Biden gave a stark assessment of the economy today, telling an audience of supporters, “there’s no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession.”

Which is a pretty good way of realizing that your crappy policies are useless.  Why look for work when there’s “no possibility” to restore the lost jobs under Obama Hussein?

And, heck, more and more Americans (maybe after listening to all of your disgraceful apologies around the planet for how awful America has been) are just renouncing their U.S. citizenship altogether:

WASHINGTON — Amid mounting frustration over taxation and banking problems, small but growing numbers of overseas Americans are taking the weighty step of renouncing their citizenship.

“What we have seen is a substantial change in mentality among the overseas community in the past two years,” said Jackie Bugnion, director of American Citizens Abroad, an advocacy group based in Geneva. “Before, no one would dare mention to other Americans that they were even thinking of renouncing their U.S. nationality. Now, it is an openly discussed issue.”

I guess you’re going to have to redouble your already maximally demagogic rants blaming Republicans for everything.

The mainstream media propaganda depicted you as transcending the political divide and rising above petty politics, Barry Hussein.  But all you’ve gone is demonize and demagogue a now increasing majority of the American people.
