Well, knowledge of the Constitution kind of goes with knowing the branches of government. I would hope most Americans would have some idea about what the Constitution is and how our current laws have been shaped by it and court rulings since then.
There is nothing wrong with being liberal, democrat or a liberal democrat. Anymore than being a conservative, republican or a conservative republican is right.
They all serve a purpose in our society.
Number One should be some knowledge of the Constitution !! If they did what you say they would surely not vote FOR liberal democrats.
Nothing special about that. Most Presidents lose at the popularity polls in their second term.
What I would like to see is a poll by people who..
1) Vote in primaries
2) Can name the 3 branches of our Govt
3) Find Israel, South Korea, Germany and Brazil on a blank map.
4) Spend at least 15 minutes reading news (not watching it on tv) per day.
Those people might actually have enough sense in their heads to be able to answer a poll on politics.
Last week his approval rating was at 42 percent and declining rapidly.
@Greek- thank goodness Obama actually does his work.
"And 42 percent of the voters that voted him in there"
Unless we are talking about different things, 52.9% of voters went with Obama.
On aside note, I would always be wary of getting onto those that voted for Obama too much. Obviously the other side didn't offer up anyone that they wanted more.
The percentage of uninsured dropped from around 19% to 15% because of the aca.
From the Canton Repository: After close to 40 years working at PSC Metals, Eugene Steed has been job hunting.He is not optimistic. Steed said he has learned many skills during his career, but he expects most companies are looking at younger candidates. He is looking because he is among the 60 Steelworkers locked out from their jobs at PSC’s main steel recycling yard off Gambrinus Street SW. Several contract issues led to the lockout, but the most prominent has been a fight over health insurance benefits. PSC has told its employees nationwide that it won’t offer health insurance, sending them to the exchanges created under the Affordable Care Act.
SO - You have hired a teenager to mow your yard and everytime you drive by the swimming pool he is there swimming. !! YOU ARE PAYING him good money but he is swimming all the time and NEVER once mows your yard or anyone elses. When you jump his as s, he blames the last guy that mowed it last year with some rediculous excuse that everytime he tries to get it mowed, someone is obstructing him from doing it. Maybe he has an idea to just spray Round Up on it and just kill all the grass for the summer. An idea that you are very much against but your neighbors are all FOR.! And THAT is OK with you ??? And 42 percent of the voters that voted him in there !!
Considering that the Executive Branch was not suppose to be the most powerful branch of our Govt and that its head is one person...no, I don't have great expectations for the position.
You have pretty LOW expectations of the position dont you?
"ALL HE DOES IS FUNDRAISE"
Then wehn does he have time to golf? ;)
Try to avoid absolutes.
There are many rational reasons why a person might think our President isn't doing a good job but harping about him doing fundraising, when other Presidents have done that with no issues, is a bit silly.
HE CANNOT DO HIS JOB NO MATTER WHERE HE IS AT PHYSICALLY. DO YOU NOT GET THAT??? ALL HE DOES IS FUNDRAISE !!! DDDUUUHHH.
While I do have issues with Obama's managerial style of leadership, all Presidents do fundraising. Why do people imply that if the President isn't literally in DC that he must be unable to do his job?
Bush did his job while in Texas. Reagan did his job as President when he was in California. Clinton did his duties at Camp David with not problems. And thus...Obama can do his job while being out of the Capitol.
Seriously, if Obama was chopping wood at a ranch, riding a bike or horseback riding would that be better than playing some golf?
"looking for Obama's promises of Amnesty"
He never promised them amnesty.
"Russia taking over the Ukraine.."
Since when di we become the nanny of the world? Sure we can help allies but we are not the only ally of Ukraine.
"highest food stamp participation rate in decades"
Actually, fewer people have signed up during Obama's administration than the last administration.
Thousands of illegal immigrants flooding across the border looking for Obama's promises of Amnesty, tax-paid food, tax-paid healthcare, and tax-paid education. - Russia taking over the Ukraine with possible involvement in shooting down a civilian airliner - China strong-arming US allies in the Pacific - Domestic: thousands of US vets not getting the treatment they need - Domestic: still the lowest employee participation rate in decades - Domestic: highest food stamp participation rate in decades - Domestic w/ international implications: US debt above $17 Trillion - etc., etc., etc - Obama's solution: Fundraising, golf, and blaming everyone else. What do you expect from an "Amatuer" Community Organizer.
It does have that smell.
"POOR DEMOCRAT is an OXYMORON"
Do you even live in WV? Poor democrats everywhere in the state.
Hmm, seems like Greek is trying to get away from the topic where he cannot prove Obama is Muslim.
POOR DEMOCRAT is an OXYMORON !!!
Search this on Yahoo news... Peek at desert home that Obama's rumored to be buying Suburb of LA. Rancho Mirage !! Liberals like to be seen as on the side of the poor and like to keep it secret that they have amassed a fortune. Just like Harry Ried and Pelosi. MILLIONAIRES NOW !!!! But when Republicans are - they have a fit and call them horrible people/leaders !!!
