Obama Approval At 37% as Government Remains ClosedPosted by J Craig on October 9, 2013
President Obama’s approval rating has hit an all-time low at 37%, but where is this being reported? All you will hear are crickets from the main stream media as they continue to flood stories how the GOP is to be blamed for the government shutdown. If George W Bush were President, your neighbor’s dog would be barking about the approval rating, but since it’s Barack Obama all you see are stories reporting how Republicans are holding us hostage. This has been planned all along from the President, as his goal for his second term was to blame the Republicans for everything prior to the 2014 elections.
This administration continues to get away with everything because the media will not do its job. This obviously was not the case during the last Presidency. The hypocrisy with Democrats continues to be mind-boggling, but sadly too many Americans have short term memory. They cannot seem to remember how George W Bush was treated not only when his approval dipped, but during his entire time in office.
Obama’s recent approval rating should be a story in itself, but it is buried within articles written by media personalities that live in their liberal utopia. They wear blinders and continue to point the finger at those evil Republicans because…well, President Obama told them to. He’s always been truthful and forthcoming before, so he must be onto something yet again.
This government shutdown did not have to happen, but Obama and Senate Democrats wanted it to happen. Why? They knew the GOP would be blamed because they had the Obama media machine on their side to back them up. House Republicans has sent over ten bills to the Senate that would fund many aspects of the government, but Harry Reid continues to reject them. If anyone should take the blame for shutting down the government, it is certainly the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the President himself who both choose not to negotiate with Republicans.
Senate Democrats continue to want a ‘clean’ CR voted on, but all this does is allow everything they want to get passed and nothing from the other side. This is not compromise. This is not how our government works. This is about blame. Plain and simple. This shutdown is all about how President Obama and his Democrat buddies want Americans to feel the pain in order to gain political points. This is not right for America. President Stompy Foot has chosen to close down many parks and memorials across the country in order to show his power and throw a temper tantrum. Thing is that many of these are privately funded. There are a number of examples where Obama seems to be spending more money and using more resources to close and block and inconvenience than to just leave it alone.
So, President Obama and Democrats stated that we do not have the money to pay for the government, but they always find the money and resources to barricade parks and memorials that are free and not regularly staffed. Again, this is just Obama making Americans feel the pain as he enjoys his golf course that remains open and his meals prepared by White House chefs deemed ‘essential’.
