Who Shot More “Gulf” Holes – Obama Or BP CEO?

Published by at 11:42 am under All General Discussions

Just a quick question to President “Kick-Ass” Obama regarding his statement he would have fired the CEO of BP by now. Who shot more holes of golf since the well explosion – you Mr. President or the CEO of BP?

    but, his Job Approval remains in the 46%-50% range. http://www.pollster.com/polls/us/jobapproval-obama.php

    Let me guess, Barack Obama. as for his job approval rating, it is hovering below 50%, closer to 45%…Bush was well into his second term before he got there. Give him time.

  3. AJStrata says:

    45% today on Gallup

    Yes, and Obama will keep the support of a lot of Democrats no matter what a disaster he is. They are a lot more loyal to their politicians than Republicans are.

  5. mbabbitt says:

    The loyalty of the Dems comes from the fact that Liberal-Progressivism is their religion and their politicians are their pastors, preaching the catechism of Democratic Liberalism: Dems, good, Republicans, evil. Anything less than evil is still so much better than the alternative. They will excuse almost anything they can get away with. The fact of Jewish loyalty to Obama is emblematic of this religious devotion. Not rational, for sure, considering the 20 years he spent in an antisemitic church.

    I think that is true, but it is more than that…they were calling themselves yellow dog Democrats long before they thought of themselves as liberal or left or progressive or any of that.

    A target rich environment for President Kickass http://hotair.com/archives/2010/06/08/video-obama-cant-explain-why-he-hasnt-spoken-to-bps-ceo/

    I love the line in here about the “President’s” meeting on the beach to shank a few golf balls into the gulf.

    My point of the polls is that if he(POTUS) can weather this and still maintain anything of 40% approval rating then he must be “speaking in tongues” to the true believers.

    Maybe he was tryin to plug da ho with his b**ls, since hez gone urban on us “kicking A**” of da BP CEO.

    And WaPo gave Obama 52, of course they also over sampled Democrats. The breakdown was D34 R25 I38. CNN and WaPo always do that. The last time CBS did a poll they had Obama in the 40s because they adjusted their demographics to reflect changing party affiliations.

  10. Fai Mao says:

    Obama also gets about 90% support from blacks.

    Subtract 12% from that number to see his support among non-black voters

    About 15% of the electorate is hyper liberal and will support him regardless.

    (I realize this is a bad way to figure statistics but it is still so much fun)


    45-27=18% of non black and non-hard left voters support him. Call it 20% to cover the over lap in the two groups.

  11. Terrye says:


    I had the same thoughts. That is what I meant when I said Democrats were more loyal. A lot of Republicans were more than willing to trash Bush, even if it it meant helping Obama win. Of course they just blamed Bush so they bore no responsibility for trashing their own party in the face of unified Democratic opposition.

    That means that Obama could lose all the Republicans and all the Independents and he will still maintain a basic support from enough Democrats to keep his numbers from completely tanking. At least for a long time.

    I know this is the wrong election but I have been busy. I finally reviewed PA-12 and my conclusion is we should fire all the republicans in DC. RNC, NRCC, and all the staff. How they let the pundits think Burns was the favorite is beyond me. This is a tough district for REP. In PA there doesn’t seem to be many registered independents. Most people state a party affiliation.

    In PA-12 the breakdown is about 60-30-10 with democrats enjoying a 2-1 advantage and not many independents to make up the difference. The only way Burns can win is with a huge crossover vote of between 20-25% and a big 75% from the small number of independents that turnout.

    The bright side is that the crossover vote is there. In 2006 Murtha won with 60%, in 2008 he won with 58%. Critz won last month with 52%. Burns will need to reach out to the third party candidate (I believe there is one) and especialy to democrats because even under the best of turnout circumstances over half the voters in PA-12 will still be registered democrats.

    The good news is that the Reps have 5-7 possible pickups in other PA districts. In fact, Sestak’s old district is more likely to be a pickup than Murtha’s old district.

    Thanks Fei for the empirical support. I have always felt that 20% of the country was hard core dems and 20% hard core repubs. With the majority of the country (60%) having no party that reflects their moderate and reasoned views. The time has come to eliminate the alleged two party system and ban all contributions other than from voting individuals — Unions, corporations, PACs, foreigners, MOVEON.org should have no influence other than the one vote each person gets.

    As to the ratings, I would love to see how it falls out based on education or IQ.

    So why is he doing it?

    Anyone that can take it as far as the WH is not a dummy. Someone intends to wreck havoc for the length of time they have. Just look at his actions and what he accomplishes. Forget thinking in terms of slick politicians and think about issues.

    When he turned his back on thousands protesting Obamacare, he showed his hand. I understand the Helen Thomas Media, but I do not understand how he convinced that many crooked politicians to ignore those thousands outside their windows.

    He didn’t just ‘place’ himself in this office with all records destroyed. Do you hear any ‘drill baby drill’? Issues, destruction, friends are enemies/enemies are friends, bow, new world order. In order to accomplish this, he has to not care if he goes down hard.

    Sorry, but he welcomes this oil. He forgot Katrina? No way.
