Obama Approval Rating Hits 57 Percent In CBS Poll

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/18/obama-approval-rati...

With their latest public disapproval rating standing at 67%, what a marvelous time Congressional Pugs have picked to push us into another financial crisis while pointing and saying "The popular guy did it". It seems the inclination to punch up isn't limited only to one of our own Republican dummies. Apparently it's a genetic flaw or something. Bring it on dummies.

Oh boy, 55 to 67% approval rating on the two parties

And that is without clear details on Obamacare.

Once the public sees a clear picture they will storm the Whitehouse and Congress.

To throw the Republicans into the street, and assure no GOPer sits in the Oval office for decades if ever.

Not exactly Heathcliff. That's 57% FOR Obama, 67% AGAINST the Republican Party. Pay attention.

From your link:

The poll surveyed 1,179 respondents between December 12 and December 16, with a three percent margin of error.

Why are you quoting a poll from last year as if it was news today? Even the article was written in 2012.

Now who is the dummy?

Feb 11-17, 2013
Obama Approval: 51%

You should get that "genetic flaw" of yours fixed.

You mean even Gallup shows the President above 50%? The outfit that was still calling the election for Romney right up to the voting?

Wow!

Comparing apples to apples, Gallup says approval of Congress at 15% (as of February 19).

http://www.gallup.com/poll/160625/congress-approval-holding-...

Obama 51%, Congress 15%



You should get that "genetic flaw" of yours fixed.

Hint: If you're going to attempt to refute a post because it's based on "old data", it's always better to make sure that the new data doesn't reinforce what was said in the OP.

I did refute it.

The title of the OP is "Obama 57%" - which is in no way factual.

Your attempt to change the subject to something else not in the title of the OP is quite clear.

I made no comment about congressional rep approval so your reply on such is nothing more than a strawman.

which is because you couldn't refute my point: you guys crashing us into another fiscal crisis and trying to blame Onbama is like a popularity contest between chlamydia and ice cream. You remind me of the stupid little chihuahua attacking a doberman, and you've been doing it from Gingrich closing government through the credit rating debacle to sequester. Republicans can't help themselves. Intelligence being largely genetic, it's clearly genetic. Bring it on geniuses.

LOL, The reps beat Obama on the debt ceiling (he compromised). The reps beat Obama on the fiscal cliff (he compromised more than I think he needed to with tax cuts for 98% of people that are now perm and a much higher limit on the top bracket).

What makes you think the reps won't win again this time?

Reps might cry about the deal, but I bet they get the better end of the deal this time as well.

Says it all.

Obama is probably in the top 10 of best presidents in US history, and probably the best in a generation. And this is coming from a guy (me) who is seriously p-o'd with Obama about several things.

Oh, come on. Top ten?

Here's the top 10 best Presidents, in no particular order:

Lincoln
T. Roosevelt
Reagan
Eisenhower
Washington
Jefferson
Truman
FDR
Jackson
Madison


There's no way that Barack Obama EVER cracks that list.

LOLOLOL. Not hardly. If you remove Reagan, then Monroe goes on the list. Obama's accomplished zilch in his term.
