OBAMA'S APPROVAL RATING.

True or False, by the Pollsters.

The pollsters are allegedly saying that President Obama's approval rating is as low as 32% to 58% against him. Well, to many Americans, either Democratic or Republican, that may be true.

However, let's look at the facts.

1. The Ebola outbreak is fizzling out, as nobody in the country has died from it; and only two people have been directly infected with the disease.

2. The ISIS threat is being handled very well by the U.S. military through his (Obama's) instructions as Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.

3. There has not been any attack on mainland USA.

4. The economy is running on the average, and Wall Street is well off now than ever.

5. Unemployment is down to about or around 6%.

These are the main issues that will be taken into consideration, when any president's approval is being gauged.

So, the question is, what is the President doing or not doing that is making the people that the pollsters are questioning to give him a negative approval rating?
As far as his foreign policy is concerned, he is not interfering with the Russian-Ukraine conflict, but he is keeping an eye on the scene there. He is not having any problems with any of America's European allies.

It is only Iran that many are saying he must not give that country a chance to build a nuclear weapon, and that the negotiations going on now must lead to that outcome.

So, Americans are not stupid; and therefore, let the pollsters go back with their questionnaire again with the outline given above. Nobody is saying that they are cooking the books, so to speak, but Americans will want to know the real truth about the work that President Obama is doing for the country.

EMMANUEL BANDOH.

I just need to ask where you are from. In our community life is not back to normal. There are still houses in foreclosure and many people out of work without benefits and health insurance is through the roof. Perhaps it is not the polls but your outline of indicators that is skewed.

But I might be up to moving to where you live in America.

I hardly said that everything was rosy under President Obama. My outline wasn't skewed either, because, 1. The Ebola disease hasn't turned into an outbreak as yet. 2. ISIS was still being handled by the U.S. military, as best as anyone could tell. 3. Mainland USA has not been attacked in six years. 4. The economy wasn't doing badly, as Unemployment was (and still is) about 6%....... all were factual nationally.

P.S. My neck of the woods is black (African American); and it has its problems, but localizing the issues is different. You will be welcome, if you will fit in.

"The Ebola outbreak is fizzling out, as nobody in the country has died from it; "

The family of Thomas Duncan would be surprised to hear this.

"Unemployment is down to about or around 6%."

Nothing at all to do with the President. Government can't create jobs.

"The ISIS threat is being handled very well by the U.S. military through his (Obama's) instructions as Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces."

It's OK for Democrats to bomb sovereign countries and use drones to target 16 year-olds.

Well, as president, when everything is going wrong, he, Obama, is the one that the media and the general public pick on. So, the opposite must also be true. Unemployment goes down, when the government tweaks it business policies to make it easy for the private sector to hire. Now, gas prices are falling, due to the large production of crude oil in the country. Meaning, the U.S. is no more relying on foreign oil supplies. That is helping businesses and the economy.

As for Thomas Duncan, he brought his misfortune upon himself. He knew that he has been exposed to the Ebola disease, and yet he decided to travel to the U.S. under false pretenses. Help came too late for him, and so, nobody should be blamed for his death.

As far as ISIS and the war in the Middle East were concerned, the U.S. has endorsed a policy of stopping the massacre and the brutality of that Islamic militant group. In other words, it was the group that was causing mayhem, and as a result, innocent people, including children and women, were being killed needlessly. So, nicomp, you couldn't pin that on the Democrats or the U.S. military.

Typical Liberal illogic. Life is not symmetric.

"As for Thomas Duncan, he brought his misfortune upon himself. He knew that he has been exposed to the Ebola disease, and yet he decided to travel to the U.S. under false pretenses. Help came too late for him, and so, nobody should be blamed for his death."

Now you're re-framing the debate. You claimed, incorrectly, that no one died of Ebola in the US. You were wrong, live with it.

"As far as ISIS and the war in the Middle East were concerned, the U.S. has endorsed a policy of stopping the massacre and the brutality of that Islamic militant group. "

That sounds familiar. Remember a Republican President who wanted to stop the massacre of Kurds and the brutality of Saddam Hussein as his troops ravaged Kuwait City? Hmmm... now it's a Democrat President so this policy is OK.
