Hello Mitch, I know I am now going to get screamed at !! I was watching a video on youtube last night which featured an interview between the interviewee Glenn Beck and the guest who was the representative of the Communist Party of the United States Sam Webb. The Man Beck was so unprofessional and it was apparent that all he wanted to do was sneer and insult the guest,who was well able to take the sad attitude of Beck. But my gripe is that I was interested in listening to the Americans viewpoint on today's issues in your country but unfortunately nothing was allowed to be said,just skits from Beck, about the rest of the World. thank you for asking a relevant question, regards jandee.
You play the race card when you refer to him as Barack HUSSEIN Obama. . There's only one reason to use his middle name, and you know it. It's a not very subtle appeal to other Islamaphobes. That is racist.
Hi there, Kev. Gallup tells us the president’s weekly job disapproval rating stands at 50% this week not far afield from the vote spread in the 2012 election when the president won 51.1% of the popular vote. I think it is safe to conclude that those who opposed his election are still grumbling 6 months later. However, your extreme brand of disdain for the current sitting President is unique.
Beyond our boarders, President Obama’s leadership approval ratings worldwide are significantly higher than the last two years of the Bush administration. In Europe, his leadership is rated more than twice as high as the median approval ratings seen during Presiden Bush's last two years in office.
His leadership and his administration are favored by many both here and abroad but clearly, not by you. I guess this proves you can not please all of the people all of the time.
Leadership you say? Obama couldn't lead you outdoors.
If the people in Europe approve of his 'leadership' (and I use the term loosely) it's because they are not being 'lead' by him. I'd say if their idea of leadership is what most of them have now along with the EU parliament they have a very different idea of what the word means.
You're not by yourself in your opinion of President Obama's performance. Mitt Romney wasn't that popular but he only lost to the POTUS by 333,000 votes in 4 states. I wouldn't call that an amazing victory or an overwhelming show of confidence in Obama's performance. It was a victory but not much more than that.
Qualitative -- Still throwing darts at their candidate. (this quote is all over the web today)
Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, doesn’t think that the Republican party really needs to rebrand – it just needs to pick better candidates. “We are winning when we have good candidates,” he told D Magazine. “We lose when we have bad candidates.”
He continued that Mitt Romney in particular was one of those bad candidates. “Mitt Romney appeared like a kid who showed up for his science project and the teacher said, ‘Explain it,’ and Mitt couldn’t do it,” Sessions said. “His ‘dad,’ Paul Ryan, explained it to him, but Mitt didn’t get it. … That’s why we lost the last election
Yeah, and many liberals drove around with bumper stickers that read "not my president." That's not a mandate; it wasn't a mandate for Bush, and it's not a mandate for Obama. If you want to see what a mandate looks like, look at the 1980 or 1984 elections.
Many people voted for what they considered the lesser of the two evils. I heard that all over the place, and I still hear people talk about it that way. It wasn't that Obama was that popular; it was the Romney was that unpopular. A win like that isn't a mandate unless you win by a much larger margin. He didn't exactly crush the guy who admittedly put his own foot in his mouth and put down almost half the population. If you're the incumbent, and you can't beat a Mormon candidate who literally committed political suicide and didn't have universal support from his own party by a larger margin, you don't have a mandate. That SHOULD be obvious.
So? "He won by the largest margin in 30 years" No he didn't win by the largest margin of victory in 30 years because the election is not based on the popular vote! Bush won 426 electoral votes in 1988, Reagan in 1984 won 525.
It is not a mandate no matter who wins by how much...We have an election for President and the winner is the winner. Congress is the same. What matters is what they move towards after the election. In this case, with both, we are moving further still from the Constitution. Both parties are to blame, just one moves faster than the other.
You are embarrassed by Glen Beck but not so by the liberal media that refuses to ask the tough questions on issues like Benghazi? Beck has never claimed to be a representative of the USA in any way...he is a talk show host who occasionally comes up with some very nice tidbits of information for which many in high places love to assign him labels as a nut, etc...much like they did with Joe McCarthy in the 50's. If they cannot beat him on facts, they will insult his intelligence, deny his credibility, defame his character, and attempt to have him branded a "nut case" in general so that any information put forth falls on deaf ears. We once had a media in this country capable of coming up with same information but they sold out lock, stock, and soul to the liberal left and now only represent a flimsy arm of the propagandist state in this country. You can listen to Beck or ignore him...I could care less and so could he but when you take a "Dixie Chicks" attitude and speak out on something that you may not really know anything about, it just might come full circle. ~WB
Frequently, anyone expressing concern over Obama's historically poor performance in most areas, is quickly labeled racist. Let's test the theory. How many folks are embarrassed by Obama, but would totally get behind a Ben Carson / Condoleezza Rice or Condoleezza Rice / Ben Carson ticket?
Recent poll by New York Times/CBS (favorable numbers for Obama)
Economy – 41 Budget Defecit – 33 Gun Policy – 41
How’s that mandate looking now? He can’t even get half of the people to believe he has done a good job in these three areas. That doesn’t lend much credibility to your “mandate” debate.
The numbers are appalling for republicans too. This is what I said in an earlier post. Many people voted for the lesser of two evils. Romney was exceedingly unpopular, and many voted for Obama because of who his competition was. This was no mandate. It was a victory, but it wasn’t a mandate.
