Trouble with Obama is rising - the pop star cult is over

The frustration about Obama and rather the Clinton team who took over again is quite understandable after all they are part of todays mess with them deregulating the banks. I know it sounds like antisemitism but the results speak for themselves as the overload with Jewish influence in DC did no good - never had America so much debt - the middle class has been robbed for 20 years now with the pathetic policies of Greenspan who started the inflation cheat and created asset bubbles deliberately with his malicious FED model and Bernanke is not doing any better just producing easy money and profits for Wallstreet. The bill for taxpayers will come expensive as he will not be able to unwind the 2.4 tril bonds he bought without losses. Half of the foreclosures land directly in the lap of the government as they hold the mortgages and that bill could run up to 1 tril. on top of all the other money already lost with Fannie and Freddie.
Obama has not delivered anything of substance as he still fights expensive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to make oil companies richer on the expense of Mainstreet and soon make another grave mistake in supporting Israels campaign against Iran while Israel can still carry on to be the only nuke weapon owner in the Middle East - that is a gamble which will be very costly for Americans as they need to create jobs but instead might just be sucked in WW3 because the Zionist lobby around Obama pushes him to do so.
DC needs a basic overhaul if where is a roughly 2% Jewish population in America that should be the DC presence give or take one percent but not 50% which makes for an obvious unbalanced interest mongering. The word representative should match its core meaning but the people who vote need to invest more time if they just give votes to the ones with the biggest ad budget it will obviously never work out. Liars in politics should be prosecuted by the DOJ and a law to make that a felony is much more needed than chasing terrorists abroad since those people do much more harm - the aftermath of the oil spill will have killed tenfold the people who died during 9/11. Corruption has to end with no loopholes whatsoever - make that a death sentence since those people are responsible for more deaths than all killers together.


Confidence Waning in Obama, U.S. Outlook

Americans are more pessimistic about the state of the country and less confident in President Barack Obama's leadership than at any point since Mr. Obama entered the White House, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.


The survey also shows grave and growing concerns about the Gulf oil spill, with overwhelming majorities of adults favoring stronger regulation of the oil industry and believing that the spill will affect the nation's economy and environment.

Sixty-two percent of adults in the survey feel the country is on the wrong track, the highest level since before the 2008 election. Just one-third think the economy will get better over the next year, a 7-point drop from a month ago and the low point of Mr. Obama's tenure.

News Hub: The Mood of Americans on Obama


The polls are showing that the mood of Americans has taken grim turn as the Gulf oil spill diminishes past high hopes. Peter Wallsten of the Wall Street Journal discusses with Kelly Evans and Neal Lipschutz.

Amid anxiety over the nation's course, support for Mr. Obama and other incumbents is eroding. For the first time, more people disapprove of Mr. Obama's job performance than approve. And 57% of voters would prefer to elect a new person to Congress than re-elect their local representatives, the highest share in 18 years.

The results show "a really ugly mood and an unhappy electorate," said Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who conducts the Journal/NBC poll with GOP pollster Bill McInturff. "The voters, I think, are just looking for change, and that means bad news for incumbents and in particular for the Democrats."

President Barack Obama pauses in the East Room of the White House in Washington on April 6.

Mr. McInturff said voters' feelings, typically set by June in any election year, are being hardened by frustration over the economy and the oil spill. "It would take an enormous and seismic event to change the drift of these powerful forces before November," he said.

Mr. McInturff added that any "little, faint signs" in the spring that voters were adopting a more optimistic outlook have now been "squished by feelings from this oil spill."

For Democrats, the results underscore the potential for major losses in November. Both parties have been forced to contend with an anti-establishment wave this year. But Republicans, through strong fund raising and candidate recruitment, have put enough seats in play in the House and Senate to give the GOP a realistic shot at winning control of both chambers.

Support for Mr. Obama and his party is declining among centrist, independent voters. But, more ominous for the president, some in his base also are souring, with 17% of Democrats disapproving of Mr. Obama's job performance, the highest level of his presidency.

Approval for Mr. Obama has dropped among Hispanics, too, along with small-town residents, white women and seniors. African-Americans remain the firmest part of Mr. Obama's base, with 91% approving of his job performance.

In winning the presidency, Mr. Obama conveyed an image of remaining steady and focused during the banking crisis and economic downturn. Now, amid the oil spill and a weak economic recovery, Americans are taking a dimmer view of his personal qualities and leadership style.

Some 30% in the poll said they "do not really relate'' to Mr. Obama. Only 8% said that at the beginning of his presidency. Fewer than half give him positive marks when asked if he is "honest and straightforward.'' And 49% rate him positively when asked if he has "strong leadership qualities,'' down from 70% when Mr. Obama took office and a drop of 8 points since January.

Just 40% rate him positively on his "ability to handle a crisis," an 11-point drop since January. Half disapprove of Mr. Obama's handling of the oil spill, including one in four Democrats.

"As a Democrat and as a woman, I am disappointed in him," said poll respondent Melissa Riner, a 42-year-old law clerk from Mesa, Ariz. Referring to the oil spill, Ms. Riner added, "I don't think he's handling it. He doesn't seem to be doing anything. He just talks."

James Ciarmataro, a 23-year-old stay-at-home dad from Macomb, Mich., said it was difficult to relate to Mr. Obama, because the president is "eating steak dinners at the White House and playing golf" while the country is suffering.

Poll Consolidates Doom And Gloom


An exclusive Wall Street Journal/NBC poll has bad news for President Obama and congressmen of all political stripes. WSJ's Peter Wallsten says the political climate will make for a brutal midterm election.

An independent, Mr. Ciarmataro said he would vote in November for "whoever seems the newest, and doesn't seem to have any ties to anybody else."

Tina Becker, a 47-year-old homemaker and registered Democrat from Wauseon, Ohio, who identifies herself as an independent, said she still strongly supports Mr. Obama. "But it might have made him look better if he communicated more about how things were progressing," she said.

In the survey, 45% said they wanted to see a Republican-controlled Congress after November, compared to 43% who wanted Democratic control. But even more telling is the excitement gap between the core voters of each party.

Just 44% of Obama voters—those who voted for Mr. Obama in 2008 or told pollsters they intended to—now express high interest in the midterm elections. That's a 38-point drop from this stage in the 2008 campaign.

By contrast, 71% of voters who supported Republican John McCain in 2008 expressed high interest in this year's elections, slightly higher than their interest level at this stage in that campaign.

The gap helps explain why the Democratic National Committee is spending $50 million on a campaign to try to lure Obama voters back to the polls this year.

Nearly two-thirds in the survey said they wanted more regulation of oil companies. Majorities also favor more regulation of Wall Street firms, health insurers and "big corporations."

While a majority still favors greater offshore drilling, support has slipped considerably over the past month as the Gulf oil spill has grown worse—from 60% in May to 53% now.

Sixty-three percent support legislation to reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of alternative and renewable energy sources, even if it means an increase in energy costs.
