According to the latest Rasmussen Report poll, public discontent with Obama’s policies continues to grow, with only 24% of the nation’s voters saying they “strongly approve” of the way he is performing his role as President, while 42% of voters say they “strongly disapprove.”
When the word “strongly” is taken out of the poll question, a whopping 55% say they “disapprove.”
Only 44% of voters say they at least “somewhat approve” of the President’s performance. According to Rasmussen, that’s the lowest level yet measured for this president.
Yet even as the unemployment rate continues to rise with nearly one in five Americans either out of work or underumployed, the U.S. dollar apparently in a long-term freefall, Obama proudly tells Oprah that he gives himself a “B+” grade for his first 11 months in office, and adds that if he can get his costly health care bill passed, he’ll raise that grade to an A-. Ahh…the many benefits of a raging ego.
This clearly shows the growing disconnect between Obama and the average American, as he becomes further and further out of touch with voters.
In short, Americans are finally catching on to the fact that Obama’s policies, in reality, constitute an underlying agenda to radically transform America at its very core, no matter what the cost to the average American.
Obama gives himself B+ grade for first months in office
WASHINGTON (AFP) – US President Barack Obama, in remarks aired late Sunday, awarded himself a B plus for his first 11 months in office, stressing in an interview with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey that there was still much to be done.
“A good solid B plus,” Obama said during an hour-long, intimate soft-focus ABC network Christmas at the White House special, when Winfrey asked what grade he would give himself.
Explaining why he wouldn’t give himself top marks, the president said his administration had “inherited the biggest set of challenges of any president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt” which they were still working on.
He had earned good points for helping to stabilize the economy, setting a path out of Iraq and restoring America’s international image, but the job was not yet finished.
“B plus because of the things that are undone. Health care is not yet signed. If I get health care passed, we tip into A minus,” Obama said, his hair visibly grayer than when he took office on January 20.
