” Barack Obama has been hammered by the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act, with disapproval of his job performance reaching a career high, opposition to the new healthcare law up sharply and evidence of potential fallout in the midterm elections a year off.

  The president’s job approval rating has fallen to 42 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, down 13 percentage points this year and 6 points in the past month to match the lowest of his presidency. Fifty-five percent disapprove, a record. And 70 percent say the country’s headed seriously off on the wrong track – up 13 points since May to the most in two years.

  Other ratings of the president’s performance have tumbled as well. He’s at career lows for being a strong leader, understanding the problems of average Americans and being honest and trustworthy – numerically under water on each of these (a first for the latter two). His rating for strong leadership is down by 15 points this year and a vast 31 points below its peak shortly after he took office. In a new gauge, just 41 percent rate him as a good manager; 56 percent think not.”

 

 

    The most amazing , and disheartening , thing about the poll is that approximately 46% of those questioned still regarded Obama as both “honest and trustworthy” as well as being a “strong leader” . With all the unadulterated BS that he spewed regarding Obamacare (see above video) it’s a miracle that anyone can profess to believe a word that the man says . Chalk it up to the power of State run  er , mainstream media and their desperate efforts to defend the indefensible . 

Actually the facts above are a shameful example of the public’s “head in the sand” attitude , given that it is reasonable to assume that the largest part of the new dissatisfaction with the president is the direct result of his namesake Obamacare . Even with all the other scandals that have come about as a result of Dear Leader’s incompetence , serious public dissatisfaction did not materialize until it started to directly affect the voter’s pocketbooks .
