Bad news for the President just keeps coming. It seems the more he does the worse it gets for the Chief Executive Officer.
GALLUP - A new low of 26% of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy, down 11 percentage points since Gallup last measured it in mid-May and well below his previous low of 35% in November 2010.

Obama earns similarly low approval for his handling of the federal budget deficit (24%) and creating jobs (29%).

What puzzles me is why anybody believes the President or the government is, or should be, in the business of creating jobs. Other than the bureaucratic ones requird to run Leviathan.

In a capitalist system it is the job of the producers {businesses} to produce the products and services demanded by consumers. It is the job of government to create an environment in which competitive businesses can prosper.

Having said the above... Given current numbers it is looking more and more like the President will be relocating in January 2012.

  2. What's up with the 26% that think President Downgrade is doing just swell- did they bump their head in the shower or something?

  3. Very good. Obama's finally getting the credit he deserves.

    Hardcore liberals are soiling their pants.

  4. The 26% that approve have to all be government workers for those are the only "jobs" that he's created, and I'll wager they're nearly all affirmative action hires at that.

  5. Seems to be the question of the day, who are the 26%... Maybe they're the voters with fictitious identities and addresses in cemeteries...
    I cannot fathom who could feel good about the current state of the Union!

  6. You guys need to visit me in the People's Republic of Kalifornia to find the "other 26%" that think Obama's economic stewardship is just fine. They are everywhere here.
