President Barack Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released Tuesday.

Obama's approval rating in the poll stands at 43%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency. And all other Post-World War II presidents had approval ratings above 50% — with the exception of Nixon, who, amid the Watergate scandal, had a dreadful 29% approval rating.

Did you check out that picture?  Is that great or what!  That pic is from the site I linked too.  If you consider that Nixon was on the front page of every newspaper and TV news story all through WaterGate....branded he was!  And Bush...demonized beyond belief...relentless...The Press never took a day off from attempting to destroy him...then look at YoMama...dude, the Press has done nothing but carry his water for him the whole way...if they had demonized Obama the way they did Bush...his numbers would be in the single digits!

I'm a bit suspicious of polls done by News agencies, Gallup has a similar average, though notes that it puts him on par with Bush at the same point in his second term.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

No, I didn't. That was a failure as far as I can see.

Well by comparison Bush started two wars that were pointless and drove the country into a recession.
Obama has seen the close of one of those wars while overseeing an expansion of the policies Bush put into place.
He has also had a congress incredibly at odds with his presidency, and there has been much done by the largest media agency in the country, Fox, to demonize him as well.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of him much at all, though I am glad someone is at least attempting health care reform here. He has done little that actually makes him different than Bush, and his handling of Snowden and Manning are simply abhorrent.

As far as drone strike are concerned, I don't see that there would have been much of a difference in policy use if they'd been as reliable a technology during Bush's turn in office.

Since we seem to be all fat and happy on the polls the moment they turn ugly, that'll motivate Obama to do even more stupid things to try to restore his Prez cred, e.g. Monica Lewinsky --> Aspirin Factory.   Thanks for that.   And the question becomes "How will Obama look?" instead of "What about the future of the country?"

Imagine being 16 again (or your current age) and going to have some breakfast or what not in a coffee shop with a few good friends... Then all of the sudden you're bursted into flames, you and your friend's bodies are nothing more than ash. Completely incinerated. As to why "President" Obama had a 16yrs boy slaughtered via Drone Strike, I don't know, but I suspect it's because him and his administration feared only what the child may have become (following the assassination via Drone Strike of his father, another U.S. citizen, commanded by Obama). I have a hard time accepting this monster as our nation's president. /=
