Some Americans are dumber than they would admit. A great part of that stupidity is the feckless Media!

Some Whites in both parties are dissatisfied with President Obama on just about everything.

 

80% favored Bush invading Iraq and we have witnessed and continue to witness that tragedy. Americans don’t want another invasion of Iraq or war, but criticize Obama for not sending America Sons and Daughters to die in Iraq’s Religious Madness. You can’t have it both ways. He pulled out our troops that were being slaughtered and is ending the war in Afghanistan, just what the hell you want from the man!

 

Bush and Cheney decimated America’s Foreign Policy and left Office after turning the world upside down, but, somehow Obama gets the blame. Considering where we were in 2008, a broken and bankrupt country with two out of control wars; millions lost their homes; Dow down to under 7,500; millions out of work; banks crashing at the rate of 150 per month; deficit of over one trillion dollars and our total financial situation at stake, and now;

 

Comparing back then to where we are today, if President Obama was 100% White instead of just 50%, he would have been hailed as America’s greatest hero. But, it doesn’t matter if Obama cures Cancer, some Whites in both the Republican and Democratic Party and their White base, would never give Obama credit, irrespective of the fact, that Obama saved our ASSES!

“Dissatisfaction with President Obama’s conduct of foreign policy has shot up among both Republicans and Democrats in the past month, even though a slim majority supports his recent decision to send military advisers to Iraq to confront the growing threat from militants there, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

 

The survey suggests that most Americans back some of Mr. Obama’s approaches to the crisis in Iraq, including majority support for the possibility of drone strikes. But the poll documents an increasing lack of faith in the president and his leadership, and shows deep concern that further intervention by the United States in Iraq could lead to another long and costly involvement there.

 

The poll found that 58 percent of Americans disapprove of the way Mr. Obama is handling foreign policy, a jump of 10 points in the last month to the highest level since Mr. Obama took office in 2009. The spike in disapproval is especially striking among Democrats, nearly a third of whom said they did not approve of his handling of foreign Policy.

 

Fifty-two percent of Americans say they disapprove of how the president is dealing with the current violence in Iraq (including about a third of Democrats); 37 percent approve.

 

“I voted for him because he said, ‘Give me four more years and I will fix everything,’ but nothing is being fixed,” Michelle Roberts, 34, a Democrat from Salem, Mass., said in a follow-up interview. “I understand he wants to fight terrorism, but send in robots, drones. Don’t send in our troops. Our men and women are dying for what?”

 

The erosion in support across both parties has contributed to a drop in Mr. Obama’s overall rating that threatens to undermine his administration’s political ambitions during the remaining two and a half years of his second term. The president’s approval rating is now at 40 percent, while 54 percent say they disapprove of the job he is doing in office, a six-point jump since May.

 

Despite the unhappiness about Mr. Obama’s leadership, 51 percent of those surveyed, including Republicans, Democrats and independents, said they supported his recent decision to send 300 military advisers to Iraq. Fifty-six percent said they supported the use of drones in Iraq, a military option that Mr. Obama’s advisers have said is still on the table as the militants, known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, have extended gains across the northern parts of the country.

 

A little over half of Americans also favor the idea of working with Iran in a limited capacity to try to resolve the situation in Iraq. Iran’s Shiite leaders support the Shiite-led government in Baghdad, but Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has publicly opposed efforts by the United States to help Iraq’s government fight back against Islamic extremists and Sunni militants.”
