President Barack Obama, in a speech to the African Union while in Ethiopia, said something as crazy as I’ve ever heard him say. Crazier than; ‘you can keep your doctor’; ‘Benghazi was the caused by a YouTube video’ – even nuttier than, ‘Hillary is qualified to be President’…
He said the following: “I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran again, I could win. But I can’t. The law is the law, and no one person is above the law, not even the president.”
Yeah, pal – we’re all scratching our heads on that one…
Obama may say he is not above the law, but it is abundantly clear that he thinks he is. He may need his head examined, though, if he actually believes he has been a “good president.” ISIS is running rampant worldwide, the national debt has skyrocketed, and Obamacare has been a massive failure, just to name a few things.
Now, the American people have spoken out in a poll. Apparently, they are not very happy that the president took it upon himself to assume they would vote for him a third time around. News flash, Mr. President, but many of us DID NOT vote for you the first or second time to begin with!
According to the Rasmussen Reports poll, only one-third of Americans would vote for Obama if he ran for a third term, assuming that was constitutionally possible. Perhaps the president needs a refresher course on fractions, because one-third isn’t exactly a majority…
The results of the poll get worse for Obama, though. The amount of Democrats who would vote for him a third time is only 57 percent. That’s just a little better than half of the members of his own party. Turns out, we’re not the only ones who can’t wait for him to vacate the White House!
Rasmussen also showed that 63 percent of all likely voters would not support a third term. Even among independents, 68 percent would vote for another candidate. 93 percent of Republicans would not vote for Obama for a third term, and we’re a little worried about that other 7 percent.
HOWEVER – Before the election of Donald Trump – it was a different story for Democrat voters:
President Obama has faced his share of criticism during the seven years of his presidency, but voters in his own party at least remain pretty happy with him. Are they ready to let him go at the beginning of next year? We decided to find out what America thinks.
Eighty-one percent (81%) of Democratic voters approved of the president’s job performance in January, with 50% who Strongly Approved. Nearly two-out-of-three Democrats are quite happy with Obama going it alone without Congress’ approval on things he considers important to the country. Most voters in general, though, only want the government to do what the president and Congress agree on.
Well, sounds like they wanted him more than Hillary anyway… SHARE this report if you think Barack Obama is one of the WORST presidents in the history of America, NOT one of the best!
