    Probably college roommates. At least the guy from Toronto admitted he did wrong, hence why he has a higher approval rating. Obama would never admit he was wrong. Too smug and arrogant.

    Id's like to change the headline

    "Crack Smoking Mayor- more popular than admitted Pot Smoking, Cocaine using President"
  • #98
    How about crack smoking mayor approval rating double that of Congressional Republicans... and most of those Republicans expect to get reelected.

    Today's Santa Barbara News-Press (something Toronto doesn't have to face):

    "No shots have been fired. No blood has been spilled. But a second Civil War is under way with a new breed of angry white rebels taking up where the Old Confederacy left off. The Tea Party soldiers of this New Confederacy have seized control of the Republican Party and flexed their muscles in trying to shut down the U.S. government. The same anti-union spirit that flourished in 1860 drives the Tea Party movement, which sees itself as resisting the tyranny of an illegitimate Northern president. In 1860, it was the end of states' rights that the rebel states feared; today, it's universal access to health care. Let's call this hysteria what it is - racism. It is no coincidence that 10 of the 11 states of the Old South have refused to expand Medicaid access under the Affordable Care Act. As a result of that decision, the majority of the people who will suffer are poor, black and working class. Welcome to the new normal. These rebels without a cause see President Obama as a Pied Piper of check-seekers, out to strip Tea Party whites of their remaining wealth and privilege, and redistribute the spoils to undeserving dark-skinned people. Aren't you glad you don't think this way?"

    Now that's astute!

    I having a real laugh about how crackheads and Obama are more popular than the republicans. I think that republicans fit in somewhere between toe fungus and chancre sores.
  • #28
    @PNWest lol! You are sadly grasping at straws now! You just cannot wrap your head around facts! People are tired of his crap!
  • #32
    @1971tennessee "People are tired of his crap! " - that's what you said before the election last year. People are disappointed at the poor obamacare website. Obama is still far more popular than anything the republicans can put up.
  • #36
    Hard to swallow the truth for you I see! I love it! Obama is a failure! I am curious to see how long it takes you to wisen up and jump ship? Let me know and I will help you get caught up. I understand you have spent at least 5 years being spoon fed your thoughts and beliefs, so when you get done with your brain washing symptoms, I will help you re-acclimate!

    The better answer should have been, "No, they are not surprising for this second term President because he's doing terrible. "
  • #123
    Yeah, and he had the decency to quit! This guy will hang on until the bitter end, and boy-oh-boy will it be bitter. Love it! I intend to just sit back and watch the implosion and listen to his staunches backers and enablers get shriller and shriller. Finally the Drama Queens of the left are giving us a bit of entertainment.

    Obama is probably at the highest point he will be for the duration of his presidency. Unless there is a miracle the Obamacare system is not going to get fixed easily. It is more like a Hydra. When one problem is solved two more will be discovered. Sticker shock seem to be the most common reaction to those that do get to sign up. Many will go without insurance because of the price. On top of that Obama has proven himself a liar and has lied trying to cover up his lies.

    Sunday, November 10, 2013

    "The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove (see trends).

    Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Democrats like the job the president is doing. Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans and 61% of voters not affiliated with either major party disapprove.
    The latest figures include 24% of all likely voters who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18." (quoted in part from the source)

    My guesstimate would be on the downside of 30% approval when O'Bysmal-care is fully implemented in 2014....
  • #16
    Yes, Obama's poll ratings may be lower then the crack smoking Toronto Mayor's ratings, but that may be attributed to Obama's character, his lack of Patriotism, and his antagonistic attitude towards all but himself! When you dwell upon all that is wrong with Obama, perhaps he too does crack!
  • #104
    I can just imagine! This man is totally out of sync with reality and it is a wonderous notion to logically rationalize how he has survived this long without being impeached!
  • #6
    When Obama said if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it he was talking to the CEO's of the insurance companies, their plan was to make megaprofits, cancel all plans and offer new ones at inflated triple digits, sometimes and cases, four digits. Like Clinton who said NAFTA would bring good paying jobs, he was talking only to the CEO's and companies and then they were paid all expenses to relocate their company and jobs.
  • #29
    If you are smart enough to figure that out then why Obama and his brain trust not? Everyone outside of the worship Obama crowd saw all of this coming!
  • #5
    What a comparison!
    How low can you go?
    Prolly as low as his(obama's) dirty deeds.
    Too bad we as citizens have to pay for them.
    They are NOT dirty deeds done dirt cheap.
  • #13
    At least the Toronto Mayor was honest, and I see nothing wrong with honesty, most everyone has done/tried something at some point! Every house in this country has a closet in it.
  • #63
    No he wasn't honest. He spent a year denying that he smoked crack, until the tape was about to be released to the public and he finally admitted it. Confessing after you've already been caught isn't honesty.
  • #11
    ROTFLMAO ... pretty sad when you being beat in the ratings department by a crackhead, drunken, liar with a serious anger management problem!

    ... but hey, if your going to turn everything you touch into compete shit ... why not be number one at it right?
  • #10
    I trust Rob Ford more, but the sheeple of the USA are dumb enough to think Obama is innocent of lying and that this his comment was taken out of context. After all, those people losing their healthcare coverage have only the Republicans and Bush to blame...or so they will believe.
  • #42
    What's to like about Obama? Sure, he can win a couple of popularity contrasts to become President but as far as substance and accomplishments go he's a miserable failure.
  • #34
    Perhaps Boehner doesn't bring bipartisan Senate bills to the floor of the House for up or down votes in an effort to keep the President's numbers askew. Maybe filibuster king Mitch McConnell whose mission was to make our President a one term President was the culprit. I'm pretty sure if some hot button issues of the day were given a vote and passed, you'd see his numbers improve rapidly. Immigration anyone? Rubio was for it before he was against it, but it passed the Senate anyway! It will take the Democratic takeover of the House in 2014, and Harry Reid amending filibuster rules in the Senate for America's business to get up or down votes, if not, we'll see the obstruction that we've seen the last 5 years.
  • #124
    You are reaching too hard here. Sorry, but he created this mess, it's just finally come back to bite him. WE told you years ago that Obamacare would cause you to lose your coverage, that's when the lies and coverup started. Hmmmm, what other of his lies do you still cling to?

    Here are the lies of just this year - see the rest at the link.

    Lies During the Fifth Year

    “If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it”

    “The NSA is not abusing its power”

    “I said benghazi was a terrorist attack from the beginning.”

    “the foreign intelligence Surveillance court is transparent.”

    “First of all, I didn’t set a red line,” said Obama.“The world set a red line.”
  • #125
    The only thing I'm reaching for is up or down votes for bipartisan legislation. If all the hate you spread is in fact "real", then Boehner shouldn't be a spineless coward, and allow votes on ENDA, immigration, and the minimum wage. Boehner wont bring them up for a vote, because he knows all three would pass the House, and Obama's numbers would improve drastically when they do.
  • #23
    You think we could work out a challenge trade with Toronto? An aggressive crackhead would handle our foreign policy better than Obama has, and Obama was probably born in Canada anyway...
  • #12
    Maybe Canadians ARE nicer people than Americans?

    I don't know about the "bounce back" but dropping approval rates seem to be a standard feature of second terms.
  • #49
    Well local politicians do also tend to be much more liked then national ones. It is the same as if you ask local people to rate their representatives in DC and they almost always give them much higher rankings then the nation does.
