EARTHQUAKE HITS WASHINGTON,DC–OBAMA GOES BIKING

Correct me if I’m wrong;didn’t the media skewer Bush for not reacting fast enough on 9/11?

  2. There’s now a name for that geologic structure that caused the earthquake near D.C.

    Yup.

    It’s “Bush’s Fault.”

    I was right when I said Republicans should take the debt deal, as bad as it was, because otherwise any negative consequences would provide Obama an excuse for his own failures. … Polling in the three weeks since the deal was announced has shown Obama in a perilous slide. Here’s Rasmussen, showing the largest gap between strongly support/strongly disapprove ever.

    I can’t remember an issue on which I have been as conflicted as on the pending debt ceiling deal.

    No sugar coating. It’s not a good deal. It does very little to solve the problem of our budget deficits and growing debt. The law also leaves us at the mercy of the appointees to the super committee …

    But there are positives which cannot be ignored. The debate leading to the deal, and the deal itself, has changed the entire dynamic of the political debate going into the presidential election year, with the sole issue being deficit reduction. … Politically, the deal has fractured the already fractured Obama base. … Fears that this deal is a prelude to a massive tax increase are overblown. …

    My perspective, as I’ve stated before, is that we need to keep the ultimate goal in mind, which is defending the House, taking back the Senate with a margin which does not leave us dependent upon 2-3 Republican “moderates,” and defeating Obama. Then, and only then, can we achieve the types of structual changes needed to stave off fiscal disaster. …

    The debt ceiling provided us with an early and somewhat unexpected oppotortunity to address some of the issues and frame the debate. And we have done that.

    Ed Morrissey comments: “Obama’s enthusiastic support now comprises only a part of the natural Democratic base. That doesn’t mean that Democrats will start becoming Tea Party activists (although it certainly doesn’t preclude it, either), but it means that Obama will have to count on a lower level of engagement and volunteerism for his next campaign — perhaps a much lower level.”

      He did one like this with the troops but I can’t find it. Anyone give me some help here? I’d like to post them side by side. They’re kind of iconic of his whole disengaged, doesn’t give a crap about anybody but himself demeanor.

  5. It’s official… Rasmussen has Obama at -21 for the month of August…

    In August, the number who Strongly Approve of Obama’s job performance was at 21%. That’s down three points from 24% in July and the lowest level measured during Obama’s entire presidency. The previous low was 23% reached in both April and June of this year.

    Since July 2009, the number who Strongly Approved of the president’s performance has now ranged from a low of 21% to a high of 31%. By comparison, 43% Strongly Approved of Obama’s performance in January 2009.

    The number of voters who Strongly Disapprove of the president’s performance increased a point from July to 42% in August. The number of voters who Strongly Disapproved has ranged from 37% to 44% since July 2009.

    The full-month Presidential Approval Index rating for August is down four points from July to -21. That’s by far Obama’s lowest full-month approval index rating since taking office in January 2009. Prior to this survey, Obama’s lowest level of approval was -17, reached three times since January 2009. With a few exceptions, the president’s approval index rating has stayed between -14 and -17 since the beginning of 2010.

    The president’s total job approval dipped two points in August to 44%, also the lowest level of approval to date. The last time half (50%) of voters approved of Obama’s performance was in July 2009. For 2011, prior to this survey, the president’s total job approval on a full-month basis has remained in the narrow range of 46% to 49%. Throughout 2010, Obama’s full month approval ratings ranged from 45% to 47%.

    Fifty-five percent (55%) disapproved of the president’s performance in August, the highest level measured yet. That finding has ranged from 49% to 54% since July 2009.
