After 100 Days… Obama Is the Second Most Reviled President in 40 Years
The radical Barack Obama ran as a moderate.
At each of the three presidential debates he promised to cut the US deficit.
Instead, Obama will quadruple the deficit this year.
If you look past his cheerleading squad in the mainstream media you’ll see that President Thin-Skin is the second most reviled president in the last 40 years.
James Delingpole at The Telegraph reported:
It’s official: Barack Obama is the second most reviled newbie president of the last forty years. A gallup survey today published in the Washington Times shows Obama to have an approval rating of just 56 per cent. The only president to have performed worse than that at the end of his first 100 days in office was Bill Clinton – and only then because it happened to coincide with the spectacular mishandling of the Waco siege, which might reasonably be laid at the door of ATF and FBI incompetence rather than presidential negligence.
Obama’s low approval ratings, however, are all of his own making. He campaigned as a healing moderate who would take the US beyond partisan politics and restore the economy; instead he has terrified all those Americans who rightly abhor the idea of adopting European socialist, with the most sweeping advance of the progressive agenda and growth in the power of the state since the days of FDR’s New Deal.
His cheerleaders in the mainstream media deny this is so. “Public thinks highly of Obama” was USA Today’s unbiased response to the polls, while the editor of Newsweek has argued he always campaigned as a progressive.
But the Post argues otherwise: ‘In all three presidential debates, Mr. Obama promised to cut government spending and reduce the size of the deficit. He blamed the economic crisis on excessive deficits. At no time did candidate Barack Obama say that more deficit-spending was the solution.’

UPDATE: Jim Miller takes a closer look at the numbers and believes that Gallup analysts are deliberately distorting the presentation of their poll results.
