It’s not news to us. We’ve been paying attention for years, and we knew all along that the fairy tales President Obama was spinning were not reality. Sadly, it seems that many Americans simply gave him the benefit of the doubt at the beginning. The President is in some trouble now though, because people are starting to wake up to his lies. In a recent poll that found his approval rating at 39%, President Obama had even worse numbers to worry about.
More than half the country believes that the president is not honest or trustworthy. A full 52% of Americans don’t think they can believe the words that are coming out of President Obama’s mouth.
ABC’s Diane Sawyer –
A rough new poll number for the President. For the first time in his Presidency a majority of the American voters, 52%, in a new poll say President Obama is not “honest and trustworthy.” One factor, the people who felt misled about getting to keep their insurance under Obamacare.
From CBS’ Scott Pelley -
The troubled rollout of President Obama's health insurance law is taking a toll on his job approval ratings. In the respected Quinnipiac University poll out today, only 39 percent of Americans say they approve of the job he's doing – the lowest ever in that poll; 54 percent disapprove. Perhaps reflecting his broken 'you can keep your insurance' promise, only 44 percent said the President is honest and trustworthy.
Can the Republican Party carry the momentum that President Obama and the Democrats have given them into 2014 and deliver a crushing blow in the midterms? That remains to be seen, but the Republicans are in a better position going into an election year than the Democrats are – so there is reason to at least be optimistic.
