Now this is funny!

This is from a post on a news site where a Gallup pole official says Obama's approval ratings are expected to drop below 50%. I think people may finally be getting it now.





"A more apt comparison would be Jimmy Carter. Obama couldn't shine Reagan's shoes, although he did get a good close up look at the Emperor of Japan's."

Re: Now this is funny!

I had heard his approval dropped below 50 but I guess it depends on who they polled and how they asked the questions and although polls are bullshiite, I don't have too tough a time believing these numbers and frankly I'm surprised they aren't lower because we are seeing the worst unemployment since the great depression in some regions.

You know you are in trouble when you are the first black President and the Black Caucus is f*cking with you, lol.

Black Caucus Stalls Finance Overhaul - WSJ.com

In one of the clearest examples of how the weak economy is overtaking Obama administration priorities, the Congressional Black Caucus forced the House to shelve its revamp of financial-sector regulation for two weeks.

According to House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D., Mass.), members of the caucus revolted on the grounds that their constituencies weren't allowed sufficient participation in Treasury and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. programs, such as the Troubled Asset Relief Program or FDIC oversight of failed bank assets.

They also complained more broadly that the administration wasn't doing enough to create jobs for low-income people or preserve minority-owned institutions such as radio stations, lending companies and jobs programs, a person familiar with the issue said.

It's kind of hard to ignore all the news of the multiple tax increases and warning from the Insurance companies, of the increased cost of insurance for everybody who buys it themselves.

Re: Now this is funny!

How is this funny? Our President, Commander in Chief's approval ratings being below 50% Even if this poll is true it's still not funny.

And you can't blame it all on him. There should be a poll on our entire government.

Re: Now this is funny!

The quote referring to his bowing to the Emperor is the funny part.

I'm sure a poll on the government as a whole wouldn't have the approval rating that Obama has. Papa D is right, polls are BS. If you poll the people I know, work with, associate with, Obama's and the government approval ratings wouldn't even hit double digits. I've never been polled myself and wonder who is being polled.

Here is an interesting link that deals with nullification by a state of federal laws. I say way to go Arizona!:

Meanwhile real estate markets continue to collapse in the absence of sufficient credit and potential buyers sitting on the sidelines waiting for the collapse.


Commercial Real Estate Will Collapse - Forbes.com

New wave of foreclosures lurks as defaults pile up - CharlotteObserver.com

"In the first stage of the housing collapse, defaults and foreclosures were driven by subprime loans. These loans had low introductory rates that quickly moved to a level that was beyond the borrower's ability to pay, even if he or she was still employed.

As the subprime tide recedes, the largest share of new foreclosures is high-quality prime loans with fixed rates. A third of the new foreclosures begun in the third quarter were this type of loan, traditionally considered the safest. But borrowers usually cannot pay their mortgages without jobs."


And the borrowers that have sufficient money to pay their mortgages are questioning the wisdom of doing so when the market value has dropped 30 to 40%. Oh, and does the buyer need a loan of more than $417,000 to close? Fuggedaboutit.

I think it is hilarious. Can't wait to see his approval numbers around 20%. I hope this SOB fails miserably.

I can blame it all on all of them. But bobo is the one pushing this healthcare, cap and trade, and bailouts. So those are his problems.



I came into this world naked, screaming and covered in someone else's blood I plan on leaving this world the same way.
