Part of Obama's problems appear to be related to foreign policy: The poll shows Americans disapprove of his handling of the situation in Ukraine 57-40 and disapprove of how he handles relationships with other countries 58-40.

Oh they answered that question in the survey, with 45% saying the current sanctions 'about right' and another 10% actually saying they were too strong. 55% of the country thought the sanctions were either about right or too strong.

Then they were asked these questions:

Expanding sanctions against Russia so that they target the Russian economy, including its energy businesses 
Support - 47%
Neither Support nor Oppose - 37%
Oppose - 14%
Refused - 3%

Taking military action against Russia to prevent it from annexing other areas
Support - 13%
Neither Support nor Oppose - 37%
Oppose - 47%

Refused - 3%


Providing military support to nations targeted by Russia
Support - 23%
Neither Support nor Oppose - 40%
Oppose - 34%

Refused - 3%

Providing financial support to nations targeted by Russia
Support - 22%
Neither Support nor Oppose - 41%
Oppose - 34%

Refused - 3%


What if you ask an American a pointed question like "How would you handle the Ukrainian crisis?" Can we at least see the absolute retardation that comes out of their mouth?

In summary, Americans are clueless f*cking idiots.

If you look at the poll results linked from the article, the no opinion response rate is near 1%. Numbers may not add to 100% due to rounding error.

Obviously this is mostly partisan driven, not policy driven. Only 3% don't have an opinion on his handling of Ukraine. The split is the same as general approval. But skip forward to question RUS1 where the question is rephrased as too strong / about right / not strong enough. More people think his response is about right than have a favorable opinion of his response. 5% instead of 3% say they don't know. That's the result of changing the question from "do you like?" to "what would you do instead?"

I would like to see a question, do you intend to vote for or against Obama in 2016?
 
2014-03-27 10:33:52 AM  
I neither hate nor love him.  I don't think I'm a clueless f*cking idiot, but I could be wrong.

Would you not vote for him even if he was a candidate from your state to the US Senate/House? He could thereby still influence federal policy from Congress. POTUSes in the past have done that.

If Fartbongo would just stop being such a spineless absolute tyrant mom jeans pussy despot, he could use his time machine to go back and use mind control rays on Vladimir Putin, which would have prevented the Ukrainian mess in the first place. Probably could increase our medal count at Sochi, too. But he's too busy playing golf and undermining the Constitution.
 
2014-03-27 10:35:58 AM  
Aside from the Russia sanctions, I can't actually think of anything he's really done recently that would give me a strong opinion of him one way or the other. The ACA stuff from the end of 2013 is just the culmination of what he did years ago and people only reacted to it because they didn't bother to think about it until it happened.

But, then, I've never thought Americans were all that bright when it comes to things like this. Even when they hated Bush it never really seemed like they knew exactly why. Mostly over Iraq even though they were probably the same respondents giving an approving nod to the invasion to begin with. They loved him, then they hated him. In both cases, pretty much just "because reasons".

if his disapproval rating is because he isn't being blowhardy or using the military enough on this Ukraine situation I don't think there's really anything he can do about it. It's like if you have 5 kids and a wife and you decide to spend money on the mortgage instead of season tickets to an amusement park you're going to have a low approval rating if you poll your whole family.

How can you have no opinion of the President? Even when I was a little kid I remember having an opinion about the President...granted an uninformed child like opinion (I thought Carter seemed nice, like a grandfather) but still I had an opinion.

Even if you're not a political wonk or team politics douchebag, surely you have to have some opinion of the President.

Hate and Love are such strong words.  I prefer to go with milder shades, such as dislike, distrust, but at times admire and sympathize.  I think once he became President he quickly realized it was harder than he thought it would be, and hasn't done a good job being confident and believable when he has needed to be.  That perception of weakness translates into a lack of respect both at home and on the world stage.

Only 2 mentioning race. Why are you so focused on what color people are ya racist?


People look at some of the hatred of Obama and see that racism is the only motivation that makes sense (e.g. the Birthers).

I tend to give them the benefit of the doubt; when analyzing residents of the right-wing reality bubble, assuming their motivations make sense to outsiders is unwarranted.

Who *wouldn't* hate someone who was like the reality bubble's characterization of Obama, even in the absence of racism? A Communist Muslim radical Christian dictator empty suit who's bent on destroying capitalism, Christianity and freedom itself? Someone who hates the troops, abandoned Benghazi to the terrorists, and is personally spending the country into bankruptcy?

Hugh2d2: Where's the "very disappointed in him" option?


This. Now the reasonable Democrats understand how reasonable Republicans feel about GW Bush. I'm not talking about the apologists for both men who try to convince us they walk on red or blue water. For those of us in the middle, who thought Bush was a better choice than Gore or Kerry, who also thought Obama was a better choice than McCain or Romney, it's been 16 long years of mostly disappointment. I honestly hope the two parties offer us Hillary Clinton (been there, done that) vs. Jeb Bush (been there, done that too) in 2016. Then maybe, just maybe, the nation will realize the two major parties really have nothing to offer and voters will consider looking at other candidates.

Isn't a 41% approval rating in the middle of the second term incredibly farkin' good, historically speaking?

Hrm, let's see what Gallup has to say about second terms...

content.gallup.com

OK, so Obama's holding about par with Jonson and beating the crap out of Bush (the second one, first one didn't get a second term obviously) and Truman.  Not really surprising that Eisenhower kicks everyone's ass, he was a hero politically to both parties and also an actual war hero presiding over a bunch of economic boom-times.

How 'bout more recent ones?

content.gallup.com

All right, so Clinton and Reagan did a bit better.  Clinton makes sense, given the similar economic boom-times.  Not sure how Reagan pulled that shiat off given the scandals and crashing the US steel industry almost single-handed, I guess everyone was high on the fall of communism, maybe?

OK, so overall it looks like Obama is sort of middlin', approval-wise.  Appropriate since he's a pretty middling-quality president, competent but not exceptionally skilled or charismatic.

s2s2s2: I'd gladly trade a likable president for an effective one. Obama is fine, but I'd prefer we had campaign Obama.


Campaign Obama's only major deviation from presidenting Obama was on transparency, other than that he's stuck to his outlined plan to overall management of executive issues and his listed policy priorities to the damned letter.

He even explicitly outlined his focused-aggression/american-casualty-minimization scheme in very, very specific terms as early as 2007 and has stuck to it  perfectly.

If you think that campaign Obama is some super-idealist lefty magic man, then the problem's really with  you.  If someone fed you a line on that one it definitely  wasn't Obama.  Did you miss the debate with McCain in 2008 where the two men spent 80% of the airtime  agreeing with each other on policy?  McCain is not known for his hippie/moonbat tendencies, man.

Yes. I like the idea of reaching across the aisle, but sometimes(especially lately) it should look like this:

And that's what pisses me off the most about how they're polling.  Six farking years of unparalleled obstructionism, and they're going to be rewarded for it.

farking morons.

Only in the short term. Their calcifying the base while freezing out moderates/independents. Trading short term gains for disastrous long term losses- it's pretty much their whole playbook.


The reality bubble does them a serious long-term disservice. Instead of trying to figure out what they might do better, they just declare they were right all along.

For example, "unskewed polls". Instead of realizing they were behind, possibly adjusting their message or policies, the Romney campaign just went "we're actually neck and neck with Obama, la la la I can't hear you". Eventually reality (in this case, the only poll that matters, the election) meets up with you whether you believe in it or not.

Thanks for the "News They Don't Want You To Hear".  For people who can't watch it because they fear the jackbooted thugs of this ineffectual and weak leader, Obama held a press conference yesterday with the Dutch Prime Minister and NOBODY clapped at the conclusion.

This is as opposed to the COUNTLESS White House "press" conferences in DC where the lamestream mainstream MSM deadbrain media always clap like seals at the conclusion of each and every press conference.

I'm glad that we have Miss Alexandra with her finger on the pulse of this administration.  Thank you, wise patriot, for exposing this hated and feckless leader.

Pfft, a tank, get out of the stone age, we don't need to invade, we have drones to take care of our target now.


It's weird how people seem to think drones are effective battlefield weapons. The only reason we can use drones in Afghanistan is that none of the people we're shooting at have the ability to shoot back. A drone is the equivalent of the day bombers that European air forces used on their colonial subjects in the '20s and '30s. When those got into an environment with enemy fighter planes in 1939, they went bye-bye in flames.

Agent Nick Fury: Sorry racist rigtwingers, we clueless, idiotic, ill-informed, lazy and fickle Americans elected him and now you're going to have to live with it.

You people make me sick.


Racism and "because Democrat" only accounts for about 25% of the respondents as that's the group that resolutely stands by the "fark everybody but me" mantra of the teabaggers. The other ~ 35%? I can just about guarantee almost none of them actually know why they don't like him, just that all the negative news about the ACA and Russia makes them feel like he's probably doing a bad job.

You're talking about a population full of people who probably couldn't name the three bodies of government or who's in line for succession after Biden. People who routinely respond positively to almost every major line item of the ACA but say they hate Obamacare. People who think that Obama raised taxes, cut oil production and went soft on illegal immigration.

You think the majority of people polled are really paying enough attention right now to have formed a valid and honest opinion on the matter of his performance as a whole as it relates to their own lives? Or do you think it's more likely they're just responding on how they "feel" he might be doing?

budrojr: Hate and Love are such strong words.  I prefer to go with milder shades, such as dislike, distrust, but at times admire and sympathize.  I think once he became President he quickly realized it was harder than he thought it would be, and hasn't done a good job being confident and believable when he has needed to be.  That perception of weakness translates into a lack of respect both at home and on the world stage.

Reagan's numbers shot up because people bought into the notion that he was being unfairly targeted by the media over Iran-Contra. No, seriously, that's what did it. People didn't want to believe their government had been that stupid and underhanded, so they just went into denial. Also, unemployment and inflation were very low in his second term (because of deficit spending that GHWB wound up paying for both literally and politically).

The fall of communism happened AFTER Reagan left office. Everyone seems to forget that. He had very little to do with it; 80 percent of the credit/blame should go to Gorbachev, 10 percent to Lech Walesa and maybe 10 percent to the Pope. Reagan's policies (nuclear disarmament, ending Carter-era sanctions) actually helped the Soviets; they never made any attempt to match our defense buildup. The policies that led to their fiscal downfall were all begun before Reagan took office, mainly the invasion of Afghanistan. Reagan should get a little credit for funding the mujahedeen, but he had to be dragged into that by Congress; he preferred to fight the Cold War in Central America.

bdub77: Part of Obama's problems appear to be related to foreign policy: The poll shows Americans disapprove of his handling of the situation in Ukraine 57-40 and disapprove of how he handles relationships with other countries 58-40.

Oh they answered that question in the survey, with 45% saying the current sanctions 'about right' and another 10% actually saying they were too strong. 55% of the country thought the sanctions were either about right or too strong.

Then they were asked these questions:

Expanding sanctions against Russia so that they target the Russian economy, including its energy businesses
Support - 47%
Neither Support nor Oppose - 37%
Oppose - 14%
Refused - 3%


That adds up to 101%.

Yeah, we should just fly over there in our C-190's or what ever we use to transport those tanks and kick them out over the tops of the Russian troops. Just use the tanks as gravity bombs, that will show them Commies that they can't compete with the US and should never try, because we are so rich we use excess tanks as gravity bombs.

There are 30 comments in this thread

Only 2 mentioning race. Why are you so focused on what color people are ya racist?

Because it matters to many of the people that hate him?

You got a citation?

Show me where somebody said I hate this man because he's black.

How bout circumstantial evidence? Like maybe his race kept him from attaining high political office or being successful?

Circumstantially, Freepers say his name is Obongo and he lives in the White Hut with Moochelle.

I'd generally say they wouldn't say that about St. Reagen.


So the people who disrespected Bush in a similar way are racist against white people?

I'll concede there are genuine racists in America....though a very small percentage....if you can concede it's possible to not like Barack Obama's policies and not be a racist at the same time

Obama is really one of the best moderate republicans out there.

He really is.

Passed a Romneycare-style legislation nationwide.
Hardline on defense like Regan.  Maintains tax rates similar to Regan rates.
Maintains the Bush-level NSA and CIA spying program.
Signed law allowing guns into national parks.  Teddy R would be proud.


You forgot one, almost convinced Republicans to vote for the largest entitlement reforms ever. A veritable wish list of conservative reforms to social programs, but they would not because it also include a few dollars to stimulus programs. Seriously how can the Republicans continually snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? What are they farking idiots?

Well, based on the things their duly elected Representatives say and the policies they push, there is a strong strain of racism running through the Republican Party (especially the Tea Party wing). That's not to say that it's impossible to dislike Obama for any number of valid reasons, or even that most Republicans are racist- just that they seem to tolerate it pretty well among their ranks.

No, it really isn't. Elsewhere, I noted that I had serious problems with Obama because of the IRS scandal, the ay Benghazi was handled, Fast and Furious, spying on the AP, the NSA actions, Gitmo still in use, and the completely comical and amateur way Obamacare was trotted out despite having years to set up a website, much less the rest of it which keeps getting delayed and the like. The O-Bots defense is either "Blame Bush" or "That's racist", indicators that liberal thought has become just as binary as what they accuse conservatives of having.

Political debate, in other words, has become the equivalent of two primitive tribes fighting over a lake.

Pfft, a tank, get out of the stone age, we don't need to invade, we have drones to take care of our target now.

It's weird how people seem to think drones are effective battlefield weapons. The only reason we can use drones in Afghanistan is that none of the people we're shooting at have the ability to shoot back. A drone is the equivalent of the day bombers that European air forces used on their colonial subjects in the '20s and '30s. When those got into an environment with enemy fighter planes in 1939, they went bye-bye in flames.


A weapon that can deliver ordinance on target, on time, and can not be destroyed by the enemy is by definition, a perfect battlefield weapon.

I think I've heard the term "feckless" more in the past month (always applied to President Fart) than I have in my entire life.  I guess this is the new thing - we've moved from "lawless" to "feckless".  I'm guessing "dickless" is waiting in the on-deck circle.


Feckless is a meaningless term that neocons apply to Democratic presidents. Cheney and Rumsfeld used it constantly when Clinton was fecklessly ending the Balkans war and fecklessly not invading Iraq. The way they use it, it seems to mean "not starting useless ground wars in Asia."

No bdub77 you would be the idiot here.  Ask 99.8% of the world's population what they do about the crisis and they would either not know how to handle it or would come up with something completely wrong on how to handle it.  Newsflash, even the people in power don't know how to handle this right now.  So, come on down from the high horse.

Americans are ill-informed, lazy and fickle

Also, skozlaw, so is everyone in whatever country you are from.  The average person is usually not basing their decisions on sound political policy, but instead from their heart / pre-conceived notions of how the world works.  This whole thought process of "Well if my small but insanely enlightened country were a major world power then we'd have our shiat together" is complete and total crap.  If these small countries were suddenly the size and population of an India, China, Russia or USA then guess what?  Your country is going to be filled with a whole lot of people who don't know what the hell is going on in the world.  So, you can stop patting yourself on the back for your feelings of oh so worthy superiority.

It's not a battlefield if there's no opposing army (battles by definition are fought between military forces). Drones are swell as a mil vs. civ weapon, but utterly useless if there's any kind of air defense around, because they're so easy to shoot down.

This is an amazingly stupid talking point that I keep seeing.

Reagan was against gay marriage; Obama is for it.

Reagan fired the air traffic controllers due to their union; Obama saved two unionized auto manufacturers.

Reagan was against raising the minimum wage; Obama is for it.

Reagan cut federal medical funding; Obama expanded federal involvement in healthcare.

Reagan wanted to eliminate the Department of Education; Obama wants to expand it.

There's probably a hundred other differences.  Obama is a generic 21st Century Democrat; Reagan was a generic 1980's Republican.

Not doing so hot in Poland, though.  Obama forgot Poland.

No he did not, he pulled those short range missile interceptors out of Poland, because of pressure from Putin. That pissed the Poles off and may have been a mistake.


No, he didn't. Those interceptors were never fully deployed, and they weren't GOING to be deployed any time soon, because they were still in development. He shifted the anti-missile defense to already deployable ship-based Aegis systems located closer to Iran, because that was more technically feasible. We're still planning to put anti-missile defenses in Poland in 2018.

I do agree that the tea party is suspect. I, personally, feel that a number of the nuts that got thrown out of the party with the Birchers came back with the tea party.

Some does not equal all; I'm sure that some democrats are racist. The only way to completely exclude racists would be to desolve all parties; no other measure would be 100% effective.

I, personally, dislike the fact that Obama didn't live up to his most important campaign promises. Yes, his tax policy is good. Yes, most of his policies are good. What really bothers me; is the ongoing attacks on the Bill of Rights. Especially, the attacks on the 2nd and 4th amendments. I really don't like secret courts and secret warrants; that smacks too much of 1984 for my tastes.

Racist tea party signs

Obama's plan: white slavery  - granted, most of these are just offensive, not necessarily racist


From Aug last year:
Earlier the same week, a crowd in Phoenix, "47 percent negro," sang "Bye Bye Black Sheep," and carried signs, "Impeach the Half-White Muslim!" outside Obama's event.

From October:
 "The Tea Party has engaged in relentless racist attacks against our African-American President. For example, when the President visited my home of Orlando, Tea Party protesters shouted 'Kenyan Go Home.' Other examples include Tea Party chants of 'Bye Bye, Blackbird,' and Tea Party posters saying 'Obama's Plan: White Slavery,' 'Imam Obama Wants to Ban Pork' and 'The Zoo Has An African Lion, and the White House Has a Lyin' African.'"
Many of the racists participating in the Stormfront discussion say they themselves are either tea party members or have attended multiple tea party meetings. But, to be sure, the tea party has quite literally millions of supporters and many, many of those people are not remotely racist, as the racists on Stormfront readily lament. And even the examples of racist language and signage at tea party rallies pales in comparison to the domestic terrorism carried out by the KKK -- cross-burning, beatings, lynchings, bombings, murder.

And:


Study: Tea Party supporters more likely to exhibit racism

'The study published in Race and Social Problems indicates that Tea Party members are not necessarily any more racist than typical white Americans, but that the movement's supporters are more likely to be, leading the researchers to conclude that, "what the Tea Party means to its members and what it represents to the large public may, in fact, not be the same thing." '

It's not like this stuff is rare or hard to find.

The choices are sanctions or bombing.  Obama chose the first.  If you don't like his policies, that pretty much means you are in favor of bombing.

Pfft, a tank, get out of the stone age, we don't need to invade, we have drones to take care of our target now.

It's weird how people seem to think drones are effective battlefield weapons. The only reason we can use drones in Afghanistan is that none of the people we're shooting at have the ability to shoot back. A drone is the equivalent of the day bombers that European air forces used on their colonial subjects in the '20s and '30s. When those got into an environment with enemy fighter planes in 1939, they went bye-bye in flames.

A weapon that can deliver ordinance on target, on time, and can not be destroyed by the enemy is by definition, a perfect battlefield weapon.

I can kill you, you can't kill me.  And it's cheap and cost effective!   What more do you want?

It's not a battlefield if there's no opposing army (battles by definition are fought between military forces). Drones are swell as a mil vs. civ weapon, but utterly useless if there's any kind of air defense around, because they're so easy to shoot down.


There are two forces.  The Taliban, which can't kill the drones, and the US drones, which can kill them.  The battlefield is where the battle is.  That one force is helpless against the other doesn't change that.

When the Taliban starts putting in air defense capabilities, we should start to worry, maybe.    I expect the martians will land first, though.

Yeah, we should just fly over there in our C-190's or what ever we use to transport those tanks and kick them out over the tops of the Russian troops. Just use the tanks as gravity bombs, that will show them Commies that they can't compete with the US and should never try, because we are so rich we use excess tanks as gravity bombs.

People want a minimalist foreign policy that is successful. So they don't want us to intervene in Syria, but they want the war to end and the bad guys to be defeated. They have no idea who the bad guys are, but they want them stopped. They want Putin to get out of Ukraine. They want a strong military, and steep cuts in defense spending. What they want is for 0bama to fart rainbows and fly around on his magic unicorn getting the rest of the world to do exactly what we want, without spending a dime or deploying a troop.

They also want a raise and better working hours, which is what these presidential rating polls are really all about. If unemployment was 5 percent, Obama's foreign policy would be popular. Because most of the people answering these polls couldn't find Ukraine or Syria on a map.

It would be nice to have a Democratic Socialist party to cover the left end of the spectrum, in my opinion.


In fairness, the Democrats lean right of center on expectation, but they do have a number of strong sub-factions and many of them are fairly far left.  That's what happens when you're a consensus party and your opposition is only recruiting wingnuts.

Sometimes the more leftward factions will get to dictate overall policy on an issue (gay marriage), sometimes the more right-ward will win out on something (fiscal policy) and sometimes the factions won't be able to reconcile and nothing will get done because of vote splitting (gun control, apparently).

The discussion is just going on inside the party rather than on the floor of congress at the moment.

What really bothers me; is the ongoing attacks on the Bill of Rights. Especially, the attacks on the 2nd and 4th amendments. I really don't like secret courts and secret warrants; that smacks too much of 1984 for my tastes.


Fair enough. I'm not a huge fan of the apparent disregard since the passage of the PATRIOT Act of the protections of the 4th (consistent through both Bush and Obama's administrations), so you have my sympathy there.

As far as 2nd amendment rights, I personally think it was a bad political choice on Obama's part to tackle something so contentious, but he apparently feels strongly enough about the issue to take the heat. I'm ambivalent about guns- I think the NRA has derailed any meaningful possible conversations, especially regarding sensible regulation of a deadly tool.
I've got no problem with gun ownership (and I like to shoot, the few times I have), but the rampant paranoia and violent rhetoric surrounding the issue are all but guaranteed to keep me away from the range any time soon.

The point I was making is that a lot of Farkers (see bolded above) seem to think drones are some awesome new war-winner that we would use against Russia in the event of a real mil-mil fight, instead of tanks or manned attack jets. They're not, they're just model airplanes with rockets strapped to them.

Also, referring to a populated area where you're fighting an insurgency as a "battlefield" is one sure way to fail. The point of COIN is to protect the people who live there from the bad guys, not to just kill the bad guys (and collaterally kill some of the people you're trying to protect).

LazyMedia: Also, referring to a populated area where you're fighting an insurgency as a "battlefield" is one sure way to fail. The point of COIN is to protect the people who live there from the bad guys, not to just kill the bad guys (and collaterally kill some of the people you're trying to protect).


I prefer this COIN instead.

Please give us more information about this nugget.



As governor, Reagan signed the The Mulford Act in 1967 prohibiting the public carrying of loaded firearms.
As president, Reagan was in favor of the Brady Bill which would institute background checks on firearm purchases.
This is common knowledge.

'The study published in Race and Social Problems indicates that Tea Party members are not necessarily any more racist than typical white Americans, but that the movement's supporters are more likely to be, leading the researchers to conclude that, "what the Tea Party means to its members and what it represents to the large public may, in fact, not be the same thing." '

Wow, a study published in Race and Social Problems.

Good thing all these tea baggers are racist and providing good jobs for these folks.


I never said all, but someone above questioned whether anyone who dislikes Obama does so because of race.  Hopefully I have eased that concern.  Many people who dislike Obama do so because of race and I stand by my previous statement that things would have been a hell of a lot different if he were a white Republican.

On racism:

The first vote-shift graph shows basically the entire country, including most red states, voting more liberal in 2008 than 2004 ... except for an arc in the south (plus Arizona, McCain's home state) that became more conservative.  This has sometimes been referred to as the "racist belt".

benfry.com

The second vote-shift graph shows the entire country voting more conservative in 2012 compared to 2008, except for a different arc in the deep south (plus a few patches elsewhere), that became more liberal.  This roughly coincides with the heavily-black counties that went strongly for Obama in both 2008 and 2012.

Yeah, we should just fly over there in our C-190's or what ever we use to transport those tanks and kick them out over the tops of the Russian troops. Just use the tanks as gravity bombs, that will show them Commies that they can't compete with the US and should never try, because we are so rich we use excess tanks as gravity bombs.

I am a frequent Fark reader.  Since 2006, I have seen Obama supporters mention Obama's race a few thousand times.  I've never seen them mention his heritage.  I see them defending his politics daily.

Yet, somehow, believing he was unqualified for this (or any other) political office and unprepared for the task at hand makes me a racist instead of just a legitimately concerned citizen.

Once and for all, I could give a flying Fark what his race is,  I believe he is the worst president since Carter, and the damage he has done will have a longer-lasting effect. Unfortunately, the Republican party doesn't have Reagan waiting in the wings for this go-round..

Jim_Callahan: keylock71: ...And Democrats are pretty much "moderate Republicans" these days. The GOP is somewhere off in the unhinged, far right field.

It would be nice to have a Democratic Socialist party to cover the left end of the spectrum, in my opinion.

In fairness, the Democrats lean right of center on expectation, but they do have a number of strong sub-factions and many of them are fairly far left.  That's what happens when you're a consensus party and your opposition is only recruiting wingnuts.

Sometimes the more leftward factions will get to dictate overall policy on an issue (gay marriage), sometimes the more right-ward will win out on something (fiscal policy) and sometimes the factions won't be able to reconcile and nothing will get done because of vote splitting (gun control, apparently).

The discussion is just going on inside the party rather than on the floor of congress at the moment.


I don't know... If you look at other modern western democracies and their parties, our Democratic Party would be solidly center right in most of them. The only current member of congress that I can think of hat would be considered "left" in Europe would be Bernie Sanders... Maybe Elizabeth Warren. I'm not going to pretend I'm familiar with every member of Congress and their beliefs though... Who am I missing?

I do agree with your comments on the Democratic Party and the nature of their internal debates, though.

As governor, Reagan signed the The Mulford Act in 1967 prohibiting the public carrying of loaded firearms.
As president, Reagan was in favor of the Brady Bill which would institute background checks on firearm purchases.
This is common knowledge.


Hey , since we are going way back, Reagan was a Democrat.

Yeah, we should just fly over there in our C-190's or what ever we use to transport those tanks and kick them out over the tops of the Russian troops. Just use the tanks as gravity bombs, that will show them Commies that they can't compete with the US and should never try, because we are so rich we use excess tanks as gravity bombs.

Yes, because if you don't think Obama has done a good job on Ukraine, it means you want to bomb Moscow.

What should be done?


I'd start with supporting Ukraine.  Declaring you are going to ship Natty Gas to Ukraine in lieu of Ukraine shipping Russian gas.   Support Ukraine taxing any remaining Russian gas coming in, because Ukraine just lost all those revenue generating ports..etc.

Ship maybe 5000 mortors to ukraine, in case they want to prevent border crossings.

Maybe thinking about curtailing utilities shipped to ukraine, or taxing them some more.

Then he's also an idiot.

Do explain, in depth, with citations, just how the president is supposed to regulate the insurance industry singlehandedly when being blocked by the most clueless, obstreperous congress ever 'voted' in?  Or at all for that matter?

I'll wait.

Why sould anyone explain that? Why the hell is the federal government regulating the insurance industry at all? Insurance should be regulated at state level in accordance with the Tenth Amendment, which provides that any powers that are not enumerated in the Constitution are reserved for the states. So the ACA is illegal unless it amends the constitution. Yes, I know the supreme court ruled on this. It's still wrong.


OMIGOD!  Why weren't you hired to argue before the Supreme Court?!  You clearly would have won.

That get their "news" and "facts" from any media talking head trying to persuade them one way or another with dialogue based on utter bullshiat opinion.


"you" dont watch "the" tv programs that I "watch", so, "therefore", your "information" is "tainted'


I watch cartoons and do not resort to TV (network or otherwise) for reliable information because they are all biased to one party or agenda.

So yes, your information is tainted because I don't watch the TV programs you watch.

Ship maybe 5000 mortors to ukraine, in case they want to prevent border crossings.

Maybe thinking about curtailing utilities shipped to ukraine, or taxing them some more.


See, this is why nobody should ask you what to do about foreign policy, even if you were literate. Russian gas goes through Ukraine in pipelines. The U.S. barely exports natural gas by ship at all, and lacks the capacity to replace Russian gas even if we decided to do that. And Mortors? Curtailing utilities? What are you even babbling about?

He ordered it closed. Congress prevented him from closing it by refusing to pay for it, and refusing to provide a place to put the detainees. The pantswetting cowards that make up the American voting public supported Congress in this. Blaming Obama for Gitmo is like blaming FDR for polio.

It's so hard to hate someone as stupid as you. You try so hard though.

Of course, if just one of those silly things is wrong, the entire thing must be wrong.  You must take the same approach to everything.  If I don't agree with one of these things, everything else is wrong also.  Good luck with that thinking, imbecile.

Oh, is that the only thing wrong? Can you prove everything else you posted, or are you too busy suckling at Rush Limbaugh's teat to care what "facts" are?


Since I posted those mostly for the humor, I will give just one example by asking some questions.

Am I free to refuse health insurance for myself if I so choose?  Or am I currently forced by law to pay the health insurance industry due to mandatory participation.

Are the liberals trying to make it much harder for law abiding citizens to own firearms by which they may protect themselves?  (because as you know criminals are going to follow those rules right?)

Has the Obama terms done anything in the way of reversing the stifling freedom limiting Patriot Act?

Until Edward Snowden made media waves on the abuses the NSA are committing, was Obama working on protecting your privacy freedoms?

Has the transparency that Obama promised during his campaigns come to fruition?

I find it funny that you and your like automatically accuse those who disagree with liberal policy with Obama in office racist, militant christian people.  You are in fact as bad as racists are, only instead of using the color of a persons skin, you do it because they don't agree with your ideas.

Oh and assuming I'm a republican would be an error on your part.  No matter who came up with these ideas, I would be against them.  Just as much as I am apposed to any religious nut jobs who want to force their morals on me as well.

No, he's right on that one.  He says Congress has blocked him from closing it but that's BS.

Obama could simply pardon (or commute the sentences of) everybody held in Gitmo.  The power of the President to do so is absolute and subject to no review by Congress or the courts.

Now, this would result in releasing some actual terrorists (as well as some completely innocent people, and some people who weren't exactly terrorists but weren't exactly good guys either).  However, it's clear that nobody held in Gitmo could be convicted of anything in a fair trial at this point, and, when you can't get a conviction, you are supposed to let them go (unless you run a banana republic without the rule of law).  This applies to child molesters and rapists and serial killers...and terrorists.

There are 30 comments in this thread

Only 2 mentioning race. Why are you so focused on what color people are ya racist?

Because it matters to many of the people that hate him?

You got a citation?

Show me where somebody said I hate this man because he's black.

How bout circumstantial evidence? Like maybe his race kept him from attaining high political office or being successful?

Shirley, you're not serious.

Racist tea party signs

Obama's plan: white slavery  - granted, most of these are just offensive, not necessarily racist


From Aug last year:
Earlier the same week, a crowd in Phoenix, "47 percent negro," sang "Bye Bye Black Sheep," and carried signs, "Impeach the Half-White Muslim!" outside Obama's event.

From October:
 "The Tea Party has engaged in relentless racist attacks against our African-American President. For example, when the President visited my home of Orlando, Tea Party protesters shouted 'Kenyan Go Home.' Other examples include Tea Party chants of 'Bye Bye, Blackbird,' and Tea Party posters saying 'Obama's Plan: White Slavery,' 'Imam Obama Wants to Ban Pork' and 'The Zoo Has An African Lion, and the White House Has a Lyin' African.'"
Many of the racists participating in the Stormfront discussion say they themselves are either tea party members or have attended multiple tea party meetings. But, to be sure, the tea party has quite literally millions of supporters and many, many of those people are not remotely racist, as the racists on Stormfront readily lament. And even the examples of racist language and signage at tea party rallies pales in comparison to the domestic terrorism carried out by the KKK -- cross-burning, beatings, lynchings, bombings, murder.

And:


Study: Tea Party supporters more likely to exhibit racism

'The study published in Race and Social Problems indicates that Tea Party members are not necessarily any more racist than typical white Americans, but that the movement's supporters are more likely to be, leading the researchers to conclude that, "what the Tea Party means to its members and what it represents to the large public may, in fact, not be the same thing." '

It's not like this stuff is rare or hard to find.


So how do you explain him getting elected?

What was the false part of that?

So far I've heard that over 4 million have lost their health insurance. Look it up.

You've come to a really stupid conclusion.

Ah, I apologize sir. I defer to your wisdom on this matter. Never mind the number of posts, using broad brush strokes mind you, painting the Republican Party as a bunch of racists; I'm sure that I am just reading them wrong.

Well, based on the things their duly elected Representatives say and the policies they push, there is a strong strain of racism running through the Republican Party (especially the Tea Party wing). That's not to say that it's impossible to dislike Obama for any number of valid reasons, or even that most Republicans are racist- just that they seem to tolerate it pretty well among their ranks.

Your messianic strawman hyperbole is what pushed it over the edge into idiocy, on par someone calling every detractor of Bush a "traitor" or somesuch.

I do agree that the tea party is suspect. I, personally, feel that a number of the nuts that got thrown out of the party with the Birchers came back with the tea party.

Some does not equal all; I'm sure that some democrats are racist. The only way to completely exclude racists would be to desolve all parties; no other measure would be 100% effective.

I, personally, dislike the fact that Obama didn't live up to his most important campaign promises. Yes, his tax policy is good. Yes, most of his policies are good. What really bothers me; is the ongoing attacks on the Bill of Rights. Especially, the attacks on the 2nd and 4th amendments. I really don't like secret courts and secret warrants; that smacks too much of 1984 for my tastes.

/ perhaps my messiah comment was slightly out of line


you think he should have overriden Congress to dismiss the FISA courts, or some other unconstitutional method to undo what his predecessors gave him? And as for guns.... I don't see how limiting access to high capacity magazines and flamethrowers is really destroying the 2nd amendment. You can still have guns for protection and hunting, but those former have no use except for mass destruction in wartime and should only be used by the military. If you disagree, find me the passage where the Founding Fathers mentioned either magazine size or flamethrowers.

This. Now the reasonable Democrats understand how reasonable Republicans feel about GW Bush. I'm not talking about the apologists for both men who try to convince us they walk on red or blue water. For those of us in the middle, who thought Bush was a better choice than Gore or Kerry, who also thought Obama was a better choice than McCain or Romney, it's been 16 long years of mostly disappointment. I honestly hope the two parties offer us Hillary Clinton (been there, done that) vs. Jeb Bush (been there, done that too) in 2016. Then maybe, just maybe, the nation will realize the two major parties really have nothing to offer and voters will consider looking at other candidates.

The substance of the attack is not important for deranged right wingers; they will attack the president for the sake of attacking the president. We saw this since day one, and it would have been the same no matter who the Democrats put into the white house.

Well that's all I got for now.  Let the hatred flow......

It's so hard to hate someone as stupid as you. You try so hard though.

/the drone comment on the first picture is plenty of reason not to take any of those seriously

Of course, if just one of those silly things is wrong, the entire thing must be wrong.  You must take the same approach to everything.  If I don't agree with one of these things, everything else is wrong also.  Good luck with that thinking, imbecile.

Oh, is that the only thing wrong? Can you prove everything else you posted, or are you too busy suckling at Rush Limbaugh's teat to care what "facts" are?

Since I posted those mostly for the humor, I will give just one example by asking some questions.

Am I free to refuse health insurance for myself if I so choose?  Or am I currently forced by law to pay the health insurance industry due to mandatory participation.

Are the liberals trying to make it much harder for law abiding citizens to own firearms by which they may protect themselves?  (because as you know criminals are going to follow those rules right?)

Has the Obama terms done anything in the way of reversing the stifling freedom limiting Patriot Act?

Until Edward Snowden made media waves on the abuses the NSA are committing, was Obama working on protecting your privacy freedoms?

Has the transparency that Obama promised during his campaigns come to fruition?

I find it funny that you and your like automatically accuse those who disagree with liberal policy with Obama in office racist, militant christian people.  You are in fact as bad as racists are, only instead of using the color of a persons skin, you do it because they don't agree with your ideas.

Oh and assuming I'm a republican would be an error on your part.  No matter who came up ...


It would be nice for all US citizens to get the same factual info without the bias of the differing media groups.  But with all the disapproval of the President, the major problem is not all with him.  Most of this catastrophe comes from congress.  Otherwise it would never even reach the Presidents desk.  It is my opinion that all elected positions have term limits, this way those in power can not continually cause harm to the people which they are supposed to be supporting.  Also lobbying should also be illegal, since the average joe gets trampled on by the huge corporations that buy laws that only help their industry.  But I'm an idealist..  sigh

The substance of the attack is not important for deranged right wingers; they will attack the president for the sake of attacking the president. We saw this since day one, and it would have been the same no matter who the Democrats put into the white house.


Clinton got pretty much the same treatment. Thanks goodness Obama hasn't had any actual scandals (IRSGhazifast&furious are about as significant as a fart in a hurricane). Imagine how much mischief a Republican special prosecutor would do with the teabaggers egging him on.

Yeah, Clinton is a good example of this. He too was attacked constantly for pointless BS. The right really has nothing of substance to attack the Democrats with because the Democrats have essentially occupied the entire political spectrum up to the center-right. The GOP has to rely on extremist views to differentiate themselves, and these views do not have enough support to actually win elections. So, constant attack mode is all they have left; distract from the issues by creating noise.

I agree.  The people that continually cause harm to the people which they are supposed to be supporting should be replaced every four years with new people to cause harm to the people which they are supposed to be supporting.

I think they need to get rid of all of Congress and get all new people... except for my representative.  He's a good man.  I would also vote for a new Senator, but that would mean voting for the other guy so I can't do that.

But other than that, I'm all for replacing everyone that isn't representing my district.

scotchlandia: Why sould anyone explain that? Why the hell is the federal government regulating the insurance industry at all? Insurance should be regulated at state level in accordance with the Tenth Amendment, which provides that any powers that are not enumerated in the Constitution are reserved for the states. So the ACA is illegal unless it amends the constitution. Yes, I know the supreme court ruled on this. It's still wrong.


The Constitution? That old, outdated document? It was written by a bunch of sexist, misogynistic, slave-owning humanists who couldn't even get the first amendment right! They failed to keep religion out of government and they allowed the citizens to get a hold of dangerous assault muskets. You can't seriously be trotting out that old thing!

For those of us in the middle, who thought Bush was a better choice than Gore or Kerry, who also thought Obama was a better choice than McCain or Romney, it's been 16 long years of mostly disappointment. I honestly hope the two parties offer us Hillary Clinton (been there, done that) vs. Jeb Bush (been there, done that too) in 2016. Then maybe, just maybe, the nation will realize the two major parties really have nothing to offer and voters will consider looking at other candidates.

As I recall, he gave tax dollars to banks in their corporate capacities. He indicated he didn't like doing it, but felt it was a necessary evil. Not subsidizing the banks, he argued, would aggravate the economic collapse.

The banks in turn used their welfare payments to give bonuses to their executives, even though they had so ineptly managed the banks that they required welfare. Obama may have expressed outrage about that--but there's no reason to believe his outrage wasn't genuine. Especially because the first bill authorizing the bank bailouts was passed before he even became president.

So... if you can produce a citation showing where Obama ordered payment of money to AIG execs in their personal capacities, and later expressed outrage about doing so, I'll a) stop thinking you're a douche, and b) depending on context, I might even get mad at Obama.

LazyMedia: Satan's Bunny Slippers: However, it's clear that nobody held in Gitmo could be convicted of anything in a fair trial at this point,

That's not actually true. The military tribunals that are taking place are getting fairly high marks from neutral observers for the sentences they've handed out. They didn't try the Nazis in civilian courts, either, and nobody thinks the Nuremberg verdicts were a travesty.


1. Those trials have basically stopped.  The people remaining mostly are either A. Guilty of nothing B. Guilty of stuff but not provable in a fair trial (due to torture or national security reasons).  Maybe my use of "nobody" was overstating it slightly; I probably should have said "almost nobody".

2. The Nuremberg trials happened in 1945 and 1946.  It's now 2014; the last prisoners sent to Gitmo were sent during the Bush administration (IE, very early 2009 or before).  Some have been there for a decade or more.  The concept of a "speedy trial" is violated here; it's too late to try them at this point, IMHO.

sprawl15: Lord_Baull: sprawl15: government overreach


bwaahahahaaa.

well that is the argument, isn't it?

obama is bad because he is not using government power to ensure that every health insurer is forced to offer the same plans at the same rates in perpetuity...a far greater reach of evil government power than anything obamacare actually does. that obama is a tyrant because he is not being enough of a tyrant


The way it was explained to me back when this was still a thing (which was a while ago, come to think of it) was that Obama made statements - if you like your plan/doctor, you can keep it/him/her - that were technically incorrect if interpreted in an absurdly literal manner which was completely divorced from the original context, where they were meant to be a reassurance that the government won't force private companies to cancel plans.

Of course, if one goes by this standard for what constitutes a "lie", then any instance of somebody losing their plan for any reason, no matter how obvious or unrelated to the law itself, could be equally held against Obama. For instance, someone's preferred doctor died, or if the person got sent to prison and was thus unable to fully avail himself of his prior health plan, then that would just make Obama even more of a liar because he didn't include specific disclaimers about this kind of stuff when making the original statements.

The commerce clause? That would be the usual justification for these types of federal regulations (health insurance being one example of many)

I'm okay with the federal government regulating this industry; healthcare needs may cross state lines, so federal rules are appropriate in my opinion. However, if the issue were decided the other way, it wouldn't be the end of the world either.

What I would really like to see though is a national healthcare program that is offered along side of private health insurance. Government teat for some, private plans for others. With that in place, I would fully support the States regulating their own insurance industries completely.

noblewolf: Am I free to refuse health insurance for myself if I so choose?

No.

Are the liberals trying to make it much harder for law abiding citizens to own firearms by which they may protect themselves?  (because as you know criminals are going to follow those rules right?)

If by "harder" you mean "wait about two minutes for a dealer to run a background check."

Has the Obama terms done anything in the way of reversing the stifling freedom limiting Patriot Act?

Yes. He started to clamp down on the NSA in March of 2009.

Until Edward Snowden made media waves on the abuses the NSA are committing, was Obama working on protecting your privacy freedoms?

Yes. See previous answer.

Has the transparency that Obama promised during his campaigns come to fruition?

Yes. The Obama White House became the first to stream every White House event, live. He held the first-ever first online town hall from the White House, and took questions from the public. He provided the first voluntary disclosure of the White House Visitors Log in history. He crafted an Executive Order on Presidential Records, which restored the 30-day time frame for former presidents to review records, and eliminated the right for the vice president or family members of former presidents to do the reviews. This provides the public with greater access to historic White House documents, and severely curtails the ability to use executive privilege to shield them. And he improved aspects of the Freedom of Information Act, and issued new guidelines to make FOIA more open and transparent in the processing of FOIA requests.

If that is not enough to qualify as the most transparent White House in history, to whom does such an honor belong?

I find it funny that you and your like automatically accuse those who disagree with liberal policy with Obama in office racist, militant christian people.  You are in fact as bad as racists are, only instead of using the color of a persons skin, you do it because they don't agree with your ideas.

And I find it funny that the answers to all of your questions are the opposite of what you think they are. It's almost as if your opposition to him stems from something other than his policies. Hmm...

Oh and assuming I'm a republican would be an error on your part.  No matter who came up with these ideas, I would be against them.  Just as much as I am apposed to any religious nut jobs who want to force their morals on me as well.

Yes, yes, both sides are bad. Your fellow Fark Independents™ have already reminded us of that several times today.

the only solace i can give those people is that eventually all terms come to an end and don't take this personal but i think your disapproval is misplaced, congress hasn't exactly governed in good faith.
I understand that when you feel the way about things you people do, there's always a general target that takes the blame for the misery you have created in your life.

Hopefully the GOP can whip up a candidate that will be more likeable to mainstream voters and i think this election they have a better chance than ever with the financial help from the 1%.

Some of us make enough money to have a bit of leisure time now and again. I guess you don't know what that's like, what with your minimum wage job probably working 60 hours a week with no overtime. Sound about right?

Our Obamaphones run out of minutes already and we have to wait until April to recharge. So there is that too.

cameroncrazy1984: Hmm, it got quiet all of a sudden. Either they've run out of talking points for us to debunk or we're waiting on the next shift.


Well, one new one just showed up.

42% of people love Obama. The black and Democratic core stays firm.

58% of people hate him. Of those: 48% of people are Republicans who would hated anybody who was a Democrat. 10% of people are disappointed liberal Democrats or Clintonistas.

Prediction:  52% of people will vote Democrat in 2016.

Whether this is enough to elect Mrs. Clinton is anybody's guess, but at least if it is, I won't have to do much work on my family tree except copy already existing research.

Baz744: Chris Ween: doubled99: The only reason anyone doesn't like Obama is because they are racists who can't stand a black man in charge. It's disgusting.

I only hate LeBron because he is black. Not because he keeps knocking my team out of the playoffs.

This is what liberals believe...about Fark conservatives.

What we really believe is that you don't like Obama because he's center-right, and you would prefer Teabagger right. But the reason you hate the moderate, mild mannered, even tempered, and mostly uncontroversial center-right president is because he's black.

And we are right.


Nah, there are WAY more people who hate Obama and think he's a soshaliss Muslim than there are racists who think that. People who believe what they see on Fox News don't need to be racist to hate Obama, because what's portrayed is completely distorted from reality.

I'm not saying there aren't a lot of racists who hate Obama only because he's black. I'm just saying there are plenty of other people who hate him for completely spurious reasons unrelated to his being black. Fox would go after a white Democrat just as hard (see Bill Clinton, another moderate portrayed as a pinko).
