Obamageddon: The Left Reacts

Obama's approval ratings are circling the drain. Time for some schadenfreude. Very few on the left have the courage to confront the latest numbers, but here's a sampling of reactions from those who do...

Just 23 percent of independents approve of Obama's handling of the economy, which is funny, because I thought that his incessant talk about "deficits" was supposed to help him with independents...

Once again, for the billionth time—no one gives a sh[*] about deficits. No one. Not even the teabaggers who claim they care about the deficit. No one cares.
(Actually, Obama spends most of his time complaining about tsunamis, the Tea Party and the Bush years. He's free to start talking about solutions anytime he's good and ready.)

President Obama’s poll numbers appear to be in free fall.

The latest Gallup poll shows Obama hitting a new low of 26% approval on his handling of the economy, down 11 points since it was last measured in mid-May and well below his previous low of 35% in November 2010.

Obama earns similarly low approval for his handling of the Federal budget deficit at 24% and on creating jobs Obama scores 29%.

The president and his family are spending their summer vacation in a $50,000 a week farm on Martha’s Vineyard paid for by the U.S. taxpayers.
Political Carnival:
Holee shinola. That is all.
AMERICAblog News:
They ignored all of us who said focus on jobs. Oh no, they had to talk about the debt because that's what Republicans wanted to debate. Well, look where it got him. Guess that genius strategy of being the adult in the room didn't quite pay off this time.
(I thought ObamaCare was supposed to create millions of jobs. What happened with that?)

Remember when Obama's approval ratings were in excess of 70%? I'm so glad those days are behind us.
