The AP reported:

President Barack Obama says his low approval rating is a reflection of public unhappiness with Congress.

Obama tells CBS in an interview broadcast Sunday that he’s “impacted,” just like Congress, when people aren’t happy with Washington.

He says he understands that his arguments that the country would have been worse off if he hadn’t taken certain actions don’t resonate with the millions of unemployed people.

The president, who’s vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, says he expects to be judged in November 2012 on whether things have improved.

Recent public opinion polls have shown Obama’s job approval rating at near 40 percent, the lowest of his presidency.

    If he didn’t have MSM cheerleaders imagine what is approval would be.

    Despicable piece of excrement, this destroyer of America will be rewarded with a very comfortable pension while the combat veterans coming home will be lucky to find a good job in this SØBama economy.

    “Impacted” my a**. He’s just full of bullsh*t from being on vacation so long and not spreading it around. Beware of his next speech. He’ll probably pass it all then.

    When will Obama pardon O.J.Simpson, his mental conspiracy-mate?

    Better would be if Obama shared a cell with O.J.

    the disapproval rate of congress is a reflection of their support of the myth’s marxist programs. people don’t disapprove of the myth because of congress, they disapprove of congress because of the myth.

    People are very dissatisfied with Congress because they haven’t hanged this traitor yet.

  • befuddled

    To shore up his approval ratings before elections, the next Genius decision by Obama is to allow weekend furloughs for OJ Simpson, so he can have a photogenic golfing buddy alongside him when the press corp comes around.

  • Sam Stone

    MORE proof this failed man is a narcissist! Only a narcissist would think he is exempt from the issue.

  • befuddled

    “When will Obama pardon O.J.Simpson?”

    O.J. is his base, not “his people”. He could run over his base with his giant hearse bus, drunk and high on cocaine for all they care. He would still pardon Madoff, before he would O.J..

  • Patty

    There ya go! His new hit on his hit parade! Just keep blaming Congress. Congress was a Majority of democrats in 10.

    Now, that he using the Word Congress he can keep getting his political jabs in.

  • Major Kong

    This appears to be a revelatory glimpse of the “specific” jobs program he will announce in September. Once again he will flog republicans for being obstructionist and the party of “NO”. He will propose a monstrous new spending program, while at the same time throwing the gauntlet down challenging republicans to deny the much needed “relief” he is proposing. Boener and McConnell will, of course, do what they do best and cave to the attending media pressure.

  • dunce

    Maxine waters told the tea partiers to go to hell. Tea parties have been called violent mobs by the MSM. The real violent mobs live in her district, doesn’t this mean she is a tea party leader? Just asking.

  • Patty

    All he thinks he has going for him is too blame Congress and heard he will repeat this over and over in his campaign. Will it work for him, hasn’t yet.

    Funny just how is policies will be our campaign slogan for 12.

    This is one of the many reasons this administration needs to be shown the door.

  • Patty

    From Obama’s Acted stupidly comments and his 57 state comment and his bowing down to leaders and our downgrade and his ever endless words of telling us to sacrifice as he lives in the lap of luxury. Really, we have to listen to insults and telling a Republican candidate he is a racist. And telling the tea party to go to hell.

    Biden chewed out by China! Seriously, I pray Americans are walking up. Stand up, America if ever there was a time this is.

    his comment proves he’s in the weeds alright…..

  • kay

    sorry, point of view from that picture of him golfing……WE’RE in the weeds. he’s on the T. smooth.

  • Sandy

    Sounds like he’s into blaming the Dems too — therefore the Congressional Dems have no reason to support him in 2012.

  • [email protected]

    Sandy, a good portion of the people in this country have no idea what or who congress is. But, since obastard has the bully pulpit, they’ll just believe everything bad is the fault of pubs. That’s stpuidity is what the rats have worked toward for generations and count on come election time.

    Pathetic.The pResident of the United States is a whining, petulant child.
    No budget, no plan—just kicking the can down the road with more finger pointing, more blaming, class warfare and PR spinning.When history is written, this man will be chronicled as a disaster!
    God help us– Jimmy Carter is going to look like Ronald Reagan in comparison.

    I do not believe the polls when it comes to Obama. I can not believe this idiot is our president. God help us.

    By definition….sound familiar????

    A sociopath is typically defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. A sociopath is often goal-oriented (i.e., lying is focused — it is done to get one’s way). Sociopaths have little regard or respect for the rights and feelings of others. Sociopaths are often charming and charismatic, but they use their talented social skills in manipulative and self-centered ways.

    A compulsive liar:

    A compulsive liar is defined as someone who lies out of habit. Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions. Compulsive liars bend the truth about everything, large and small. For a compulsive liar, telling the truth is very awkward and uncomfortable while lying feels right. Compulsive lying is usually developed in early childhood, due to being placed in an environment where lying was necessary.

    Couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that as president he sucks.

  • Finncrisp

    Barry acting stupidly is exactly what this country needs. The more disconnected he gets, the less likely he can recover the trust of the American people. The guy needs to go-today!

    apparently, the pretender in chief hasn’t got the memo…

    How can this numbnutz have a 40 percent approval rating? This must mean that 40 percent of the people polled are still asleep,related to him or just plain stupid.

  • Iconoclast

    As much as I utterly loathe this fetid bit of maggot excrement, he really does need professional help: delusional, pathological liar, sociopathic, narcissistic,cowardly, insecure and utterly incompetent. He knew what he was doing selecting biden for VP; joey hairplugs has to be the only pol on the national level who is more feckless than WTF, and thus a constant reminder that, yes, things *could* be worse.

  • burt

    The 40% represent the Democrats who still vote for FDR even though he has been dead for 66 years.
