Most Polarizing President Ever

Even before his catastrophic election, it was hard not to guffaw when his Kool-Aid–guzzling supporters dreamily averred that electing a radical left community organizer on the strength of his black skin and Muslim background would unite the country. Three grueling years of economic misery and eroded liberty later, even his amen corner at the Washington Post admits that Barack Hussein Obama has been the most polarizing president ever:

For 2011, Obama’s third year in office, an average of 80 percent of Democrats approved of the job he was doing in Gallup tracking polls, as compared to 12 percent of Republicans who felt the same way. That’s a 68-point partisan gap, the highest for any president’s third year in office — ever.

In 2010, the partisan gap between how Obama was viewed by Democrats versus Republicans stood at 68 percent; in 2009, it was 65 percent. Both were the highest marks ever for a president’s second and first years in office, respectively.

Expect the polarization to continue even if the class warrior is dislodged from power. If we can’t all agree that his presidency has been an unmitigated disaster, then it’s unlikely we will concur on anything any time soon.

Surprise: our center-right country isn’t entirely on board with the agenda.

    Must be all the laoesque nonviolent respectful #OWS demonstrations of peaceful tranquility and good citizenship. Don’t you love the way they bring the nation together.

  2. Beef says:

    Ya, but that’s our fault.

    We are not worthy of The One.

  3. The MaryHunter says:

    Naah, IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!!

  4. lao says:

    It always helps to actually read the link.

    While it’s easy to look at the numbers cited above and conclude that Obama has failed at his mission of bringing the country together, a deeper dig into the numbers in the Gallup poll suggests that the idea of erasing the partisan gap is simply impossible, as political polarization is rising rapidly.

    Out of the ten most partisan years in terms of presidential job approval in Gallup data, seven — yes, seven — have come since 2004. Bush had a run between 2004 and 2007 in which the partisan disparity of his job approval was at 70 points or higher.

    Why do so many rich people, groups and companies support O’Bama and the other liberals who push class warfare? Simple, it’s a protection racket. Give to the Left and maybe they’ll eat you last, but DON’T give to the Left and you’re first on the ox cart to the guillotine. Just ask Microsoft when Clinton sic’ed Janet Reno on them.

    lao’s: reply…. “but, but, but BUSSSSSH!!!!!!!!”

    “BUT BOOOSH!!!!” Why can’t you defend your beliefs and your tin god? You have NEVER TRIED. Oh wait, Alinslky’s “rules for radicals”: “never defend your beliefs, always make your enemys defend theirs”.

    This poll is just another whine about how MEAN AND HATEFUL conservatives are towards the tin god rather than an honest commentary on divisivness.

  8. StanInTexas says:

    That is all fine and well, LoaZee. However, you are deliberately ignoring the fact that Obama ran on bringing the nation together, on healing the divide. It is his own arrogance that has caused him to fail.

    But please continue to throw out protection for the empty Hawaiian shirt. We are laughing *AT* you, not with you!

  9. lao says:

    You are a joke kHArn, I quoted from the link blount provided.

  10. lao says:

    Oh yawn…tell me please, which party has earned the well-deserved label as the party of “NO!”?

  11. StanInTexas says:

    That would be the Democrats, LaoZee.

  12. MissAnthropy says:

    The party of NO budget for over 1,000 days
    The party of NO domestic energy
    The party of NO border security

    Why, that would be the Democrats. The party of NO future.

  13. Uneducated Moonbat says:

    BUT BUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. lao says:

    The Republicans have been moving to the far right way, way faster than the Democrats have been moving left.

    The public is well aware of Republican obstructionism and that policy is going to bite them hard come November.

    Look no further than the polarizing circus within the Republican party itself, that continues to demolish the presidential nomination process. Is that Obama’s fault?

    Do you want to try to claim Moonbattery wouldn’t be inhabiting the far right fringe if it were not for Obama?

    Thanks for the laughs.

  15. DavidD says:

    It’s too bad that he’s not the least polarizing President ever–it’s too bad that he’s not at 12% approval with both Republicans and Democrats; then his partisan gap would be a big zero.

  16. This assclown will have left deep, deep scars in this society by the time he’s kicked to the curb

  17. KHarn says:

    “lao says:January 31, 2012 at 2:48 pm”

    And you STILL refuse to defend your beliefs! They must be CRAP.

    Learn to spell my name asshole.

  18. KHarn says:


    Let’s say that your kind get EVERYTHING you want tomorrow. What will you do with the MILLIONS who don’t see things your way? You can’t deport us, there are MILLIONS of conservatives and moderates and you regressives have said that you CAN’T DEPORT MILLIONS OF MEXICANS. Besides, where would you send us?

    Your “heros” of the revolution have already shown the way: mass murders, torture and imprisonment. Will you jump in front of the fireing squads and shout that you “oppose all violence”?

  19. lao says:

    khArn, I laugh at your hyperbolic dramatics and paranoia.

    Firstly, no political party EVER gets EVERYTHING they want, so your query is absurd at the start. But for fun, suppose the Democratic party took the Presidency, House and Senate with filibuster proof majorities. That would be a nice start.

    What would happen to you? NONE of your apocalyptic scenarios.

    If it isn’t obvious already, Moonbattery’s very purpose is to agitate unthinking flakes like you with lies, fear and propaganda and to enhance and perpetuate political polarization which you happily regurgitate without the slightest hint you think about what you are saying.

    Anyone who fails to understand that, demonstrates quite clearly why I refer to many on the far right here as “parrots”.

  20. Henry says:

    “Do you want to try to claim Moonbattery wouldn’t be inhabiting the far right fringe if it were not for Obama?”

    No problem. The Moonbattery website pre-dates the Brown Mao by several years. At the time of this site’s debut, no one even knew who the Chicago turd was.

    Now will you STFU?

  21. lao says:

    Thanks for making my point for me henry.

    Political polarization has existed long before Obama came along, a fact blount’s own link confirms.

    Moonbattery has chosen to encourage political polarization from the start.

  22. TonyD95B says:

    As usual, it’s “All About Loud Angry Obfuscator”.

    RE: KHarn at January 31, 2012 at 4:56 pm:

    “And you STILL refuse to defend your beliefs! They must be CRAP.”

    He doesn’t know WHAT he believes, K. All he knows is that if he disagrees with us, people here on Moonbattery will give him attention.

    And, he’s such a foolish and narcissistic attention whore he doesn’t even care that the “attention” he gets is laughter and ridicule.

    Are you really that stupid? Your point? You mean this one:

    “Do you want to try to claim Moonbattery wouldn’t be inhabiting the far right fringe if it were not for Obama?

    I already showed you that this site existed far before the Brown Mao made your nethers tingle.

    Yeah, you really are that stupid. Don’t bother responding. It’s painful to read your stupidity.

  24. Belfast says:

    The difficulty Lao has with the Bush/Obama figures is that the MSM continually bagged Bush, and continually praised Obama, while dropping heavily on anyone who crtiicised Obama.
    And he STILL recorded the worst figures.
    Interesting to see Lao returning as the rumors gather about fudge-packing.

  25. Jimbo says:

    The worthless bastard, Obama, hates everyone but himself.

    That’s as plain to see as the communism in a stinking liberal’s heart.

  26. David says:

    I find it interesting that an image created by an individual is used but the name of the artist is scrubbed by adding a border that hides the name of that original artist. If you are going to use an image that you obviously like and makes your point…Shawn and Jay… at least give credit to the original guy who created it.
    Just saying, here is the original image from 8-3-2011.

  27. Dave Blount says:

    Thanks David. All fixed. Don’t blame Shawn and J.

  28. Scott Brown says:

    I wasn’t able to block filibusters until 2/4/10. That means teh Democrats had a filibuster proof Senate from 7/7/09 (the date that clown Franken was sworn in) until I was seated.

    8 months, by my count, of a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.


  29. lao says:

    Do you believe the polarization would be any less if Hillary were the president?
