No Kidding… Most Americans Say Obama Is Failing on the Economy

Obama tripled the deficit his first year with the failed Obama-Pelosi stimulus plan.
In Obama’s second year the deficit topped a trillion dollars again.
It was unprecedented.

The Obama deficit this year may reach $1.29 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)

Barack Obama and Democrats also added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.

That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.

So this really comes as no surprise…
The latest Quinnipiac poll shows that most Americans believe Obama is failing on the economy.

Respondents disapproved of the way Obama is handling the economy 56 percent to 38 percent, but also found Obama more trustworthy on the economy than Republicans, by a margin of 48 percent to 35 percent.

    Democrats across the country told us that it was possible for a completely inexperienced individual to learn how to be an executive on-the-job. Believing in the faith of hope and change was enough. We’ve learned they were utterly wrong and shouldn’t be trusted with voting.

    We need to keep this failed grand experiment which 49% of us warned against in mind and hold the real culprits accountable: those who voted for this poseur.

    Failed on the economy? Just WHERE is he not failing???

  • exceller

    which makes his threat to Cantor that he will “take this to the people” even more hilarious. Go ahead comrade, make my day and take it to the people.

  • Joe College

    McConnell was right. Obama is gaining popularity by the budget debate.

    According to Rasmussen –which certainly does not lean left — Obama’s approval index among likely voters is pulling nearly even: 49/50

    And his ‘passion’ index has risen 7 points since the rancor began; it’s up to -12, from -19.

    The question is not is Obama Failing on the economy because the answer is obvious. The question should be is he doing it on purpose or is he stupid?

  • Reconstitution

    The only people not agonizing over Obama’s failure to achieve more than talk are those where no amount of evidence will change their mind, those hearing only the left-wing spin, and those who are not paying attention. As the election approaches, the second two groups will begin to wake up. Obama is a community organizer. He’s good at creating conflict, getting people mad, and motivating people with talk. He uses hatred, envy, anger and jealousy (evil) but doesn’t know how to do anything constructive, solve problems, or bring people together (good).

    Barry is so close, but so far away. His handlers must be really disappointed in him.

    #5 is correct. is really failing or is he really succeeding. it is a marxist’s job to destroy the existing order. i’m sure obama does not see his job as helping a capitalist system be successful.

    Obama beat everyone, however, with his scaremongering claim that Social Security checks are at risk if he doesn’t get his way on the debt ceiling. “I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on Aug. 3 if we haven’t resolved this issue,” he told CBS News, “because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it.”

    Wait! What happened to Social Security’s “guarantee”? You know, the iron-clad assurance of Social Security benefits in exchange for paying into the program your whole working life? It’s something Democrats constantly talk about, particularly when attacking Republicans who propose privatizing the program.

    As Nancy Pelosi once put it: “Social Security has never failed to pay promised benefits, and Democrats will fight to make sure that Republicans do not turn a guaranteed benefit into a guaranteed gamble.”

    EPIC FAIL by “The Won”


    I am so sick of every politician…none of them care, regardless, of party, about us…. unfortunately with the demoturds in control, they will push anything they can to keep more moochers of society dependent on government handouts which equates to more votes for them…we are in deep $HIT

    Very ignorant respondents fooled by Satan.

    Women DO like being lied to, in general.

    Only the smart one’s can handle the truth.

    Americans like to state the U.S.A. is the greatest country on earth, but America is in a downward spiral, and there is a profane expression to describe her situation and it is true – ‘America is ******!’ The only ones who can save America is her people – it is all on your shoulders.

    I wouldn’t jump to conclusions about Obama recovering popularity due to the budget debate, #4. That very same pollster is simultaneously reporting these results today:

    Generic Republican Candidate 48%, Obama 43%

    Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 44%, Democrats 38%

    53% Favor Repeal of Health Care Law

    70% Think Government Regulation Hurts Small Business More Than Big Business

    57% of Working Americans Say They’re Middle Class, Lowest Level in Two Years

    72% Favor Free Market Economy Over One Managed by the Government

    #5, on purpose, DUH!

  • bg


    How stupid do these people think we are?

    as stupid as we prove ourselves top be.. 🙁


  • Kate

    Talk about stuck on stupid. Why would anyone trust Obama on anything?

  • chuck in st paul

    So the 52% will reelect him so he can finish cleaning up the gigantic mess Booosh and the Evil Jooos left for him. I mean what can the poor man do with those Rethuglicans blocking his every move to make the greedy rich people and criminal corporations just pay their fair share? Send money to ACORN right now! Do not let underage Nicaraguan hookers down. Without your help who knows… they might have to get a job that does not require dropping their panties.

    and 52% of them will pull the handle for Sir Golfsalot once more. Otherwise you might be called a racist.

  • sandy

    Obama claims if he doesn’t get a debt deal this will be the end of his presidency. Can we quote you sir?

    There is one thing a President must never do and that’s make the people miserable and the man who talked about Hope and Change is just another fear monger.

    Depressed as Mr. Obama is he is planning his own Birthday Party–$38,000 a couple.

    Who are the idiots who think he’s more trustworthy than Repubs? This is the damage done by MSM to not be truthful about BHO.

  • Marmo the Greater

    The only thing Obama is being successful at is failing at everything.

  • AnnaS

    The Republicans need to stop worrying about poll numbers and stand up for what’s right!
