Obama Least Popular President In 4 Decades

Americans Have Lost Faith

A new Washington Post/ABC poll released today shows that Obama is the least popular president in 39 years:

The president’s overall approval rating stands at 43 percent, while disapproval is at 55 percent.

***

Obama ends his fifth year in office with lower approval ratings than almost all other recent two-term presidents. At this point in 2005, for example, former president George W. Bush was at 47 percent positive, 52 percent negative. All other post-World War II presidents were at or above 50 percent at this point in their second terms, except Richard M. Nixon, whose fifth year ended in 1973 with an approval rating of 29 percent because of the Watergate scandal that later brought impeachment and his resignation.

Why is Obama so unpopular?

Because – as horrible as Bush was – Obama is worse than Bush in favoring the super-elite, bailing out the big banks, protecting financial criminals, targeting whistleblowers, keeping government secrets, trampling our liberties and starting military conflicts in new countries.

Obama is even worse than Bush in redistributing wealth from the American people to a handful of fatcats and spying on Americans.

Obama is also worse than Bush in appointing cronies to powerful government positions.

Americans now realize that Obama is not following the will of the people.

Moreover, having a sell-out president Obama after a sell-out president Bush has shown the people that neither mainstream parties represents them.

Indeed, both the mainstream Republican and Democratic parties are virtually identical regarding core issues including:

Any apparent difference is just a scripted show.

Under both Republican and Democratic politicians, both the rule of law and free market capitalism have been trashed.

In reality, we no longer have free market capitalism. Instead, we have socialism for the rich and sink-or-swim capitalism for everyone else.   Conservatives see the socialism half of this equation, and liberals see the laissez faire free market half. Both liberals and conservatives hate crony capitalism. Look here, here, here.

People have lost faith in the 2 party system.

Note: The poll numbers for Congress are even worse.

    Should be even lower. Closer to Congress. I certainly don’t see his numbers getting any higher, unless he starts practicing what he preaches, but I’ve got a better chance of winning the lottery than that happening.

    He is just a walking Penis and no matter how HARD he tries he will always be just that. In other words he is a “Girly Man”.

    • Defiant

      I an NO fan of Obama…but what does your post even MEAN!? How does a walking penis signify a “girly man”? Woudn’t that be a walking vagina!?

      • poptoy1949

        Just like obama…it makes absolutely no sense. But Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.

        • Adam Evenson

          Good show, poptoy1949.

  • Randa

    My understanding is that Obama has always preferred to take it up the ass.

    • Taylor

      That’s a bummer!

    • Adam Evenson

      I’m pretty certain your understanding is correct.

  • TheTruth

    However, the next president will still be part of the same “club” as Obama, like the Bushes, the Clintons, *Insert Crony Politician* etc. – that whole gang. And the people in the background will still be pulling the strings telling a new President, “this is how’s it going to be.” That’s why a large majority of voters haven’t bothered to vote for anyone for decades, as they say, “Its just more of the same – liars and crooks.”

    Unless by some miracle a third candidate, with common sense and compassion, is voted in. That would require every American to turn off their TeeVee.

    What is more likely to happen is that something akin to Augustus of Ancient Rome will say, “Give me power and I will fix the problems,” only Augustus didn’t fix the problems, because he lied, and Rome continued on its road to decline as an Empire.

    treason = death.
    line em up in front of the trenches. shoot em in the gut, and bury them alive.
    hell awaits so many…..all dual citizenship politicians, all rogue elements, bankers, – u r gonna be dragged to the streets and knife fucked.
    i can not wait.

    • reddragon1967

      I agree Bill, but they must be dealt with properly. We need to have them all placed under arrest, put on trial and after being found guilty of high treason among many other crimes, including aiding and abetting the enemy(arming al qaeda), THEN they should be hanged by their necks in public, and televise it for the whole world to see. Warning any future wanna-be commie infiltrators of what will happen to them if they ever try this again.

  • John

    Bias abounds in this article. Bush Jr. was the worst president. All the reasons you state in this sham of an article were perpetrated by GWB/Cheney. Torture? Bailing out banks? Targeting whistleblowers (Valerie Plame)? In fact, with the latter Cheney leaked her cover to Novak and he published it. Iraq? All done under GWB. What a bunch of partisans.

    • Shameer Mulji

      The only difference between George Bush & Obama is a darker tan. Obama’s presidency is basically Bush 2.0. Bush started the job, Obama is finishing. They are two sides of the same coin.

      • Defiant

        Except that Obama’s approval is lower than George’s!

    • Defiant

      I knew I’d find one if I looked hard enough! ROFLMAO! Face it! I know it’s a nightmare for you Libs…but your golden boy is WORSE than Bush!

  • Vinny777

    Its about time America is realizing our president is a SOCIOPATHIC LYING FRAUD TRAITOR !!!!!
    Everything about this guy is a LIE, EVERYTHING !!!!!
    Next year the sh-t hits the fan with obamacare and this country will explode !!!!
    Take away my health care and hurt my family and I’m going to be mighty PISSED OFF !!!

    • Taylor

      Can’t do anything to derail Obama and his policies, and that is because he is a black man. If Whites try removing him from office through impeachment, then black America will explode with anger. Most Blacks love Obama for one reason and one reason only: HE (OBAMA) IS A BLACK MAN! Policies don’t’ matter diddly squat with most Blacks.

      • Vinny777

        I like to call them his “OJ is innocent” followers, who would follow our SOCIOPATHIC president to hell !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • juergenwahl

    It is well past time for a New American Revolution, in which the old principles of personal freedom, fairness of opportunity, and justice for everyone are re-established.

    • Taylor

      Won’t happen because the elites, who control both our military and law enforcement, will brutalize the people if the people try asserting their God-given rights.

      • Eileen Kuch

        History is not on the side of the “elites”, nor empires. Every single empire has fallen, either violently (as most have) or through decay from within (examples: The British and Soviet Empires). The days of these “elites” are numbered, and they know it. The People will prevail, just as they had prevailed against the British Crown in the Revolutionary War. It took 8 years; as, it may take that many or more for We the People to prevail against this rogue govt. Just remember; there are tens of millions of heavily armed citizens – most of them hunters and/or combat veterans – who have the advantage of motivation and knowledge of their terrain. Just look at Vietnam as a good example. The US was unable to beat them, despite their great weapon supremacy. Why? The Vietnamese were defending home and family; thus, they were extremely motivated to win; and, they also knew the terrain and were able to use low-tech weaponry to defeat a nation that only had the high-tech stuff.

        Pride cometh before the fall.

  • Defiant

    Obama’s approval ratings are the lowest for any president in forty years!? IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!!

  • Uncle_Meat

    His supporters don’t care about the polls. They support him because he’s black. They will tolerate anything and follow him anywhere because of his color.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Just like tribal africans and the tribal african chief.

  • Steve3

    When did we agree and decide that the dark was stronger than the light?. We need to take our world back from the dark forces that have it under their control., This has been going on for aeons now and its time for ordinary folk to regain their sovereignty and rights back. How did we allow governments to serve themselves and their agendas instead of the people?. There should be a new word for ‘government’,
    called organised mafia

  • Adam Evenson

    I was well ahead of this “least popular’ wave sweeping the nation. I didn’t like Obama when I heard his name while he began preening for cameras, because it was too close to Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, which was the concocted pretext for war. It was a simple knee-jerk reaction, and it proved to be 100% true and correct. But I stay in front of the unwashed masses, anyway, even with my knee-jerk responses. I can’t stand the stench of the (mentally) unwashed, which is what Americans are.

  • Cuda

    What an outrageous liar the writer of this article is. Bush sucked Way worse than Obama could ever dream of. A pathological liar in thief who looted America, bush utterly SUCKED and is a traitor involved in 9/11. Obama is just the repairman.

  • apeman2502

    I want to make one thing perfectly clear. I am the President.

    Now let us hear Obama say it.

  • Archie1954

    Bush is still the biggest killer by far! Obama has a long way to go before he matches the approximately one million Iraqis Bush murdered.

  • melora

    Obama did not bail out the banks. That was done before he took office.

  • Hegelian

    Obama is a man trapped. I believe he has a conscience but he is surrounded by war mongrels, chicken hawks who are puppets for the real rulers of the Country. I think they took him in a room and showed him an assassination from a totally different perspective and explained the rules to him. Instead of looking down on the humble masses for the problem, look up at the controllers.

  • Vinny777

    History will show Obama is a traitor !!!

  • wunsacon

    Relax, people. 2016 will arrive soon enough. Then, you can vote for the Hillary or Jeb Bush of your choice.

  • Dave

    Hahaha, this article is just another example of some idiot trying to push his agenda with sources he has never read. After about 5 seconds searching the Washington Post article linked at the beginning of this, it is clear that the statement, which was completely taken out of context, is comparing Obama’s 5th-year approval rating to other president’s 5th-year approval ratings. While it is true that George W. Bush’s 49% approval rating at the end of his 5th year was higher than Obama’s 47% at the end of his 5th year, prolonged war in the middle east under false pretenses and failure to compromise in congress drove Bush’s rating down to 27% before he left office. You also point out that people hate Obama because he bailed out the big banks which, I hate to break it to you, was a part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) which was signed into law on October 3, 2008 by George W. Bush (not Obama), you can look at this Wikipedia page if you don’t believe me:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troubled_Asset_Relief_Program – Since you clearly don’t like reading you will be glad to know that all the information is in the first line.
    I am definitely no fan of Obama but when articles like this are written it does nothing but make us out to look like a bunch of idiots who didn’t do our homework.
