James!: 40% is practically a ticker tape parade compared to what the republicans have.
bdub77: If that asshole thinks he's gonna get reelected in 2016 he's got another thing coming.
jake_lex: The thing about tying so much of their fortune to bashing Obamacare for the Republicans is that it really could backfire on them. By the time the 2014 mid-term elections roll around, it may very well be that the website issues are ironed out and people are ending up getting better insurance for less money. Of course, if it's still a clusterfark, the Democrats will suffer.But that's why the Republican Party is pushing this. They need Obamacare to fail to do well in 2014 and even 2016.
DamnYankees: I disagree with this. Democratic accountability is about more the election; it's about respect for the opinions of the people in general. This argument that "well, he's never running again, and there's no political advantage to it anyways, so who cares" is the same one people were making for Bush in 2007. It's crap.
themindiswatching: bdub77: If that asshole thinks he's gonna get reelected in 2016 he's got another thing coming.The dickish thing is that Freepers currently have a massive hard-on for Putin (who is serving a third term even though the Russian constitution has term limits). Anything to hate the black guy, I guess.
Serious Black: If President Obama suddenly announced unqualified support for the entire Republican Party platform, Republicans in Congress would instantly move the entire platform further to the right and condemn him for supporting insufficiently conservative positions.
Corvus: Remember when Bush had an approval rating in the 20s and the Republicans were all saying "It's because he makes the hard decisions!"Amazing how 40s% is horrible for a Democrat but 20s% is GREAT for a Republican.I just they would be consistent with their BS just once.
Lando Lincoln: a giant pile of retards trying to set the country on fire.
netcentric: I see his numbers going way up in 2014. Hopenchange.Or he might get impeached... whatever

Anything to hate the black guy, I guess.Putin is everything they want in a leader. He takes manly photos, he talks tough, he hates the gays, and he doesn't let bullshiat like elections or opposing views stop him from doing what he wants. Most Freepers would be much happier in Russia than they are in America.
Hyjamon: even though I know he cannot be re-elected in 2016, as do most other farkers, I still think there is money to be made printing and selling "Obama 2016" bumper stickers.
Lionel Mandrake: netcentric: Or he might get impeached... whateverOn what grounds?
Jackson Herring: say what you will about conservatives, they certainly have a unbelievable amount of control over the media narrative
Millennium: Normally, this doesn't work so well when you're in power. People are more or less already convinced of what you want, so you're not going to convince them harder: you have to chase votes to stay in power. But Obama plays an exceptional dialogue game,
Slaves2Darkness: Hyjamon: even though I know he cannot be re-elected in 2016, as do most other farkers, I still think there is money to be made printing and selling "Obama 2016" bumper stickers.Oh YEAH!They have to say.Repeal the 22nd and the 2nd Amendments!Obama 2016.
HotWingConspiracy: netcentric: I see his numbers going way up in 2014. Hopenchange.Or he might get impeached... whateverThat would give him a 20% bump.
Muta: If the rollout of ACA is the main reason his poll numbers are down then it is no biggie. Since the elections are over, the litany of Obamacare Sucks stories have slowed. I only counted one today and two yesterday. We were getting 5, 6, 7 Obamacare Sucks stories a day before the election. It is almost as if a political party was pushing the "Obamacare Sucks" story to help with the election. Also, the web site WILL get fixed putting that story to rest. People who lost their insurance will get new better insurance which will put that story to rest. If the ACA rollout is the reason for lower poll numbers then the dip is only temporary.
DeaH: Sad thing is that the Republicans could act all magnanimous and get involved in fixing the problems with Obamacare. Then they'd look like conquering heroes for the 2014 elections. Instead, they are going to stand in the way, they system will be fixed before November 2014, and they are going to look like fools. Again.
