Zogby Poll: Barack Obama’s Job Approval Rating Drops to 39%, the Lowest of his Presidency

November 23, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

BINGO WE HAVE A WINNER! The Barack Obama job approval ratings has dropped to the 30′s. According to a Zogby Interactive poll, President Barack Hussein Obama’s job approval rating has dropped to the lowest point of his presidency at 39%. The Zogby poll also has Obama with a 60% disapproval rating.

President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has dropped to the lowest point of his Presidency at 39%, and in potential match-ups with Republicans in 2012, he trails Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Newt Gingrich and is just one point ahead of Sarah Palin.

The percentage of likely voters saying the U.S. is on the wrong track is now the highest since Obama took office at 69%.

The President continues to lose the job approval of Democrats, going from 78% on Nov. 15 to 72% in this Nov. 19-22, 2010 interactive poll. His approval among independents stayed at 39%, and is 6% among Republicans.

The polling 30% watch has been on for some time now. After a disastrous 2010 midterm election for Democrats, largely due to Obama’s radical agenda … The One continues his downward spiral. As Hot Air Pundit asks, “how low can it go?” The real question will be how other polls like Gallup and Rasmussenwill react to Obama’s continued lack of leadership. The “Failure” in Chief is on the ropes and is on the verge of becoming a lame duck President.

What has to be more disasterous as stated by Hot Air is that “The One” is in a statistical dead heat in a hypothetical 2012 Presidential match up with Sarah Palin. Rut-roh, Obama trails Romney, Gingrich and Jeb Bush as well.

Obama now trails in hypothetical 2012 matchups against Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and the next Bush, Jeb.

Most embarrassing of all for the 44th president, he’s slipped into a statistical tie with none other than Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor shown by other polls to be seen as unqualified for the presidency. So it appears many have now decided, on second thought, Obama is too.

Audit: Salary-Inflating CA City Steered $700K In Gov’t Money Without Approval

November 19, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

An audit of the city of Bell by California’s state controller’s office was released yesterday, and found that former Bell City Administrator Robert Rizzo steered more than $ 700,000 in state and federal funds “to companies and at least one City Hall insider without valid contracts, competitive bids or even getting City Council approval,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

Eight Bell officials pleaded not guilty in October to using public funds to inflate their salaries for part-time elected positions. Rizzo, who was charged with 53 different counts, made nearly $ 800,000 a year. Others made up to $ 96,000 a year for their part-time jobs — 20 times the national average for a city Bell’s size.

The Times reports:

Among the companies that received state and federal tax dollars was an engineering firmed owned by the city’s former planning director, Dennis Tarango. D&J Engineering was paid nearly $ 100,000 from an oil-recycling grant even though the planning director’s company did not have a contract for the work.

The audit said the payment may be illegal and, because of Tarango’s job with the city, raises questions about a conflict of interest.

On March 8, the city will vote on whether to recall Mayor Oscar Hernandez and council members Teresa Jacobo and George Mirabal.

Year Two of Obamanation: Barack Obama’s Approval Rating = GWB’s in Year 5 of Presidency

November 15, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Barack Hussein Obama likes to blame all the ills of his Administration on former President George W. Bush. Does Obama blame his poor job approval ratings on GWB as well? Presently according to Gallup, Obama has a 42% approval rating and a 49% disapproval.

How bad has Obama been as President? It took Barack Obama only two years to reach an approval level of GWB in the 5th year of being President. One has to try in order to accomplish such poor poll numbers so fast.

Wonder why there are some Democrats who do not want Obama to run in 2012? However, it would also appear from the rhetoric from Barack Obama that he in no way understands the will of the people from their votes in the 2012 midterm election.

Upton wants quick approval for Keystone XL pipeline

November 13, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) called on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to expedite the State Department’s review of a massive and controversial oil pipeline slated to stretch from Alberta, Canada, to Texas.

The move comes as Upton has been touting his conservative credentials in an effort to win the chairmanship of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Republicans have criticized Upton for being too moderate on environmental issues, with one of his opponents, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas), leading the “not-conservative-enough” charge.

Environmentalists and a number of lawmakers have mounted a massive campaign to oppose the pipeline project, known as Keystone XL. And they have set their sights on recent remarks by Clinton that suggest the State Department will approve the project. But it’s not just Democrats who oppose the project; at least one Republican, Sen. Mike Johanns (Neb.), opposes it because it would go through his state.

In a letter to Clinton, Upton said:

Government is currently standing in the way of this $ 7 billion privately funded project, which is expected to stimulate $ 20 billion in new spending for the U.S. economy and spur the creation of 118,000 jobs. Our number one priority must be job creation, and this is a prime example of the over-burdensome regulatory system that is killing the private sector.  Government must stand back and allow the U.S. economy to rebound. If not we will continue to see our jobs go overseas.

The Keystone XL pipeline will carry the same highly metallic and thick tar sands crude that was in the Lakehead 6B pipeline that burst in Calhoun County in July, spewing a million gallons of oil into the Kalamazoo River — and it will do so over the top of the nation’s largest freshwater aquifer.

Congressional Approval at Just 17%

November 11, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

A new Gallup Poll finds Congressional approval is at 17%, down slightly from 21% before the midterm elections.

Though Republicans won control of the House in the midterm elections, history shows that the continuing low ratings of Congress are likely to continue until the next Congress is seated in January.
