Obama’s Approval Index: Americans Hate the New Budget

Filed under: Obama — DRJ @ 2:20 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

Yid With Lid explains what Americans think of President Obama’s proposed budget:

“Rasmussen has released its Superbowl Sunday version of its Presidential approval ratings and their report only tells part of the story. The report shows the president’s approval index down to a -17, but what it doesn’t show is that the depth of President’s recent slide is a direct result of the bloated budget he sent to congress almost a week ago.”

The details are at the link, with charts!

  1. With good reason, with its ill-considered tax hikes and astonishing levels of spending, its the most irresponsible budget ever created by an administration.

  2. 44-cents of every Dollar that will be spent by the Federal Government in FY-2011, according to this budget, will have to be borrowed….

  7. Obama just hasn’t explained it clearly enough.

    He needs to keep going with the blame Bush excuse to deflect attention away from the profligate Democrat spending, ineffective Stimulus Bill, bank, auto company and failed health care takeovers, and because it’s just working so damned well. People never get tired of him dodging responsibility. He has to stick with what works.

  8. President Pretty Princess scolds Americans not to go gamble their “chidren’s college fund” in Vegas, while massively increasing the country’s debt burden? Yeah, I can see how that would irritate people.

  10. The only problem here is that the US public is ignorant buffoons and Obama hasn’t explained it enough in order for their childlike intellects to grasp.
