Remember when Teh Precious was the most inspiringest speechifier in history evah?

Gallup: Obama back down to 43%

Eric, don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people with this.” — Barack Obama to Eric Cantor, July 13, 2011

And Obama did go to the American people over the fiscal crisis — repeatedly — since that time.

[…]

Obama has grabbed the national media spotlight at least three times with the White House press corps and two other times at nationally-covered town halls since warning Cantor that he would take his case to the American people. The American people remain deeply unimpressed.

Are you ready for the money quote?

How well has it worked out for Obama? Two polls suggest that Obama was right … he was bluffing. First, Gallup’s latest survey puts Obama at 43% approval, equaling his lowest weekly approval of his presidency, and lower than that of Bill Clinton during the 1995 budget standoff

He he he.

“Gallup’s latest survey puts Obama at 43% approval, equaling his lowest weekly approval of his presidency, and lower than that of Bill Clinton . . .”

Somewhere in Texas a village idiot is laughing because he will only be the second-worst POTUS in history.

    That Ras poll that has Republicans leading in trust on every single issue, including health care and SS, still has me shocked. People are starting to now trust Republicans more on issues that have always belonged to Dems. And now R’s have a ten point lead in trust and the economy.

    • I don’t trust Republicans as a group to get behind GOOD ideas, but at least they’re rational, consistent, traditional with their party. Obama is just flipping around irrationally, making no sense, ranting scare stuff. No telling what he’s really got in mind, if any. As h44 says, Obama’s enemies can’t trust him.

    • I like Summers, but I never heard that he was famous for blind loyalty. Imo he’s a wonk who focuses on the job and the country rather than anyone’s public image (especially not his own).

      So Obama is a puppet who goes to meetings on time, proves he read his memos, asks questions to highlight his memo-reading efforts, then offers shallow platitudes on those memos which dovetail into hope-n-changey perfectly, and then leaves his advisors alone again….to do his homework so Obama knows what to think on the next subject.

      Geez….I wonder if Summers knows that he just described several of the reasons why Hillary Dems didn’t vote for Obama?

    Obama speech: lots of words, no solutions

    For the fifth time in three weeks, Barack Obama seized the bully pulpit in the debt-ceiling debate, this time using a prime-time speech instead of a press conference to do so. And for the fifth time in three weeks, Obama literally did nothing with it except to utter the same platitudes and clichés as he did on the previous four occasions. Obama offered no solutions, no specifics for a solution, and spent 15 minutes avoiding both.

    Obama says nothing better than anyone

    His Majesty once again deigns to leave the Golden Throne and speak directly to His subjects. His heart-rending pleas for shared sacrifice rang somewhat hollow, given King Obama’s wardrobe (bejeweled crown, golden scepter, ermine cloak, diamond stickpin, cloth-of-gold pantaloons) and entourage (a troupe of court eunuchs fanning him with fresh hundies straight from the Treasury vault). William Kristol at least was not terribly impressed:

    These “people outside of Washington” are not little children being lectured on an obscure subject by a worldly adult. These people outside Washington are … citizens. Judging by the polls, most of us have opinions about whether, and under what conditions, the debt ceiling should be raised. We don’t seem to be as ignorant as Obama thinks we are of the term or concept of a debt ceiling. But the president assumes we’ve never bothered our pretty little heads about such a thing.

    His Majesty only wishes to spare us the confusion and distress inherent in running our own lives. How much easier to let the King do it!

    Republicans, who have brought either four or five different budget plans to the table since April and have had them all shot down by a recalcitrant Senate or an imperious President, are still somehow to blame for the budget impasse according to the wise heads at the New York Times. Pretty soon they’ll just start writing random mash-notes and love poetry to Obama and posting those in lieu of op-eds. (“Dear Obama, you are just the ginchiest!!!! Huggz and big wet smooches from your darlings at the New York Times! Luv4Eva!!!!”)

      Hell, why not? Esquire published that “Summer of Obama” love letter by that SuperObamaAsshat just this last month.

      • Mr. Mike says:

        As much as the NYT luved them some Bush and ‘bama they hated Al and Hillary. I wonder who gives them their marching orders?

        • angienc says:

          Goldman Sachs, Soros or that asshat from NBC/Universal whose name my white hot rage has blocked out of my mind. Take your pick.

        • Three Wickets says:

          NYTimes puts the “limo” in liberal. Except they probably didn’t expect Obama to become a limo conservative.

    I know it’s been discussed before, but it bares repeating:

    Narcissistic Personality Disorder Looks Like This …

    • In public, a person with narcissistic personality disorder may pretend to be the perfect wife or husband, acting charming and polite …
    • You may have no idea of the lies they are telling you or the lies they may be telling about you behind your back.
    • They will lie and paint themselves as an innocent victim to try and gain sympathy and justify their own bad behavior (while fooling themselves that their lies are the truth).
    • They may be very charming and even humble in public, fooling people so they won’t believe how verbally abusive they are in private or the cruel things they say behind people’s backs.
    • They will lie and manipulate people for attention, perhaps acting a bit too good to be true.
    • They will act as if they should never be questioned and that they deserve things they haven’t worked for or earned, while trading on other people’s honesty and hard work.
    • Their criticism and lack of concern for your well-being may cause you to feel rejected, hurt, humiliated, powerless, ashamed and angry, while also leading to possible psychological and psychosomatic health problems and addictions within your family.
    • They will act superior and like they are more popular than you – while being cold, arrogant, withdrawn and unavailable.
    • They will show little or no regard for your well-being and feelings.

    The Lifetime Movie Channel is showing The Betty Broderick Story TV movie. This is a real case study of batshit crazy narcissism. I’m starting to see how Dick could fit this bill if he gets disrepected enough. Whoever the Republicans nominate, they need to hire Sarah Palin to advise them how to get under Obama’s skin.
