Barack Hussein Obama is a historic president all right. In his race for the bottom, he just surpassed the guy widely considered the worse POTUS in modern history:
President Obama’s slow ride down Gallup’s daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history.
Since March, Obama’s job approval rating has hovered above Carter’s, considered among the 20th century’s worst presidents, but today Obama’s punctured Carter’s dismal job approval line. On their comparison chart, Gallup put Obama’s job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter’s 51 percent.
Every president receives a substantial built-in block of support just by being in power, as demonstrated by even the disastrous Carter managing 51%. Obama’s should be even larger, since he will have virtually all blacks and New York Times subscribers in his corner no matter what he does (short of selling out to Whitey by acting in America’s interests). Yet his approval is at 43% and dropping. Without a supportive media, the Manchurian Moonbat would already have left office on a rail, dressed in tar and feathers.
What’s more, Gallup finds that Obama’s overall job approval rating so far has averaged 49 percent. Only three former presidents have had a worse average rating at this stage: Carter, Ford, and Harry S. Truman. Only Truman won re-election in an anti-Congress campaign that Obama’s team is using as a model.
In other words, he’s gambling that as much as we loathe him, we like Congress even less. This means his $1 billion or so in campaign funds will be largely devoted to crapping in his hand and hurling it at Boo-hoo Boehner. Remember when the Moonbat Messiah was going to unite us?
It’s not much of a strategy, but it will have to do until the Dems can import enough unskilled peasants from the Third World to establish a socialist majority. At that point adolescent class warfare rhetoric will be all any Democrat needs.
