Obama's Bounce: Zero
— Ace

I see none here in Gallup, where he returns to his worse ratings in the daily tracking (47/47).

He did get a moderate blip in Rasmussen, from 45% to 49%, owing to his solidification of the Democrats (going from 81% to 90% with that subset). But, you know, Scott Rasmussen is Hitler and can't be trusted.

More troubling for Obama is Rasmussen's findings that a majority of the public just doesn't believe his wild claims about "2 million jobs created" and the rest of the nonsense.

Yes, but in a more perfect world he would have gotten tenure by now:  Screwing students occasionally ( actually ), screwing most of his students routinely ( literally ), and writing journal articles about White People Who Took Everything and Are Bad.

On the internet, former students would advise others to avoid his classes.....

38 The thing that amazes me about Obama is that in both the SOTU and his address to the Republicans, hardly a sentence came from his mouth that wasn't at least half complete bullshit.

The question is, does he KNOW he is lying to us, or has he really convinced him self that his stimulus really did create or save 2 million jobs?  He has GOT to know that the method you used for counting those jobs was utterly bogus.  I mean, he HAS GOT to know that right?

When Nancy Pelosi tells us that she is going to do whatever it takes to pass healthcare for the American people and to reduce the deficit, doesn't she KNOW the American people have said over and over they do NOT want Obamacare and that they used accounting gimmicks to make it look like it would reduce the deficit.

I am afraid these people are drinking their own koolaid.

46 I have to say I was heartened by the President's SOTU speech. He reached out to Republicans with conservative policies and asked them to join him in remaking America. We should not turn our back on our country. It needs us now more than ever. The last 8 years have not been easy; there's a lot to fix. So lets get to work and support our president. If we don't, I feel the Republican Party will cease to exist. God bless America.

He is not an ideologue; he's a centrist, with some leftist tendencies, but no one is perfect. His health-care bill actually saves money!! He is trying to reverse years of deficit spending!! He wants us to be energy independent!! So everyone jump aboard for the bid win.

110 Bill Mitchell,

He has one of the common problems of academics. He refuses to think for himself on anything but his "core competency" areas, and relies upon authorities to form his complete opinion in all other areas. (And his area of core competency is 'community organizing', so be worried.)

If an authority he trusts (Say: Paul Krugman) says "Spending money is great, it doesn't matter what you're spending it on, just spend more!" he follows along like a puppet. It doesn't matter that even Keynes himself was talking about infrastructure spending, not random "Let's hire 150,000 geotagging Census workers just to blow more cash."

And it means he always has his perfect cocoon. Just watch his behavior in front of the Republicans. Watch very closely. His entire attitude says "You people are morons, I can't believe anything you guys say. The only plausible way I could see myself saying that is if I was bought by monied interests."

It's "his expert" versus "your expert." He's going into it with the assumption that your expert is a moron. And he can't accept the possibility that "his expert" might be wrong.

Even the cases in which he reverses himself - he's doing it because the political choice is different from what he considers right. Moving the terror trials? Well, ok, I guess we have to. Avoiding C-SPAN? Well, ok, Nancy says I have to. Etc.

It's as if he lives in a true echo chamber. And even when something jarring enters the chamber, he asks his pet expert and gets immediate revalidation.

116 I knew someone very similar to Obama once. She had a position of power in the college where I taught because of her religious affiliation -- this was in a Middle Eastern university and she was an American convert to Islam, which tells you right there how mentally stable she was.

She was in way over her head, and the walls crumbled down around us on a couple of occasions because of her incompetence. Her actions became delusional, paranoid, and hysterical. She'd run to a typewriter and start madly typing letters to authorities on who had done what. She literally ran around in a state of panic as her duties went undone. The teachers looked stupid in front of over a hundred students because we didn't have tests or teaching materials and no one knew where they were supposed to be going.

The funniest part about this whole debacle is that the Obama team seems to think that these speeches and appearances and photo-ops actually matter.

Ronald Reagan would have been run out of office on a rail in 1984 had the economy not ROARED BACK TO LIFE.

Bill Clinton was re-elected in 1996 because the economy had largely turned around and unemployment was at 5.5%. 

If unemployment is still around 10% come November, the Democratic party is toast, regardless of how much bs this clown shovels between now and then.  The media can't save Barry, nor can ACORN or SEIU. 

The only thing that will work is GOOD POLICY.  Unfortunately, this nitwit is too stupid and ideological to do what's necessary to restart our economy (i.e. major tax simplification, drastically cutting the corporate tax, regulation reform, etc.).

137 I will imagine that Team Barry will keep overexposing him and smearing republicans in a vain attempt to hold 50% approval overall. The problem is going to be that the economy is not going to improve and then the talk of the Bush tax cuts expiring will further undermine business hiring. The whole time Obama will be perceived as willfully wrecking the economy due to idealogical stubbornness. By November, people will be up in arms even more so than now.

POTUS got a bump in approval after his joint session speech in September.  Then HCR cratered.  His approval returned to the decline trend.

Every President gets a bump after a SOTU.  It's theatre so they better get a bounce.

A pathological narcissist will look you in the eye and lie to you, knowing that you know it's a lie, and that you know he knows he's lying. And if you point out the lie, you're a terrible person. But they will deny it's a lie, and act as if they believe the lie is true. It's disorienting to experience this in person.

Obama keeps telling outright lies to peoples faces (i.e. Wilson, Alito), and they keep calling him a liar. It never seems to occur to him to quit lying.

On Bloomberg today, Roubini was killing the GDP report.

He says that it's all smoke and mirrors - he predicts 1.5% growth for the second half of 2010 plus rising unemployment. 

If unemployment hits 10.5% by November, Barry is going to get a hell of an opportunity to be a "bipartisan" president.

my humble opinion, the repubs just need to stay out of the way.

the fraud and the lunatic marxist party (which is what the Democrat's party has been) is self imploding.

The repub/tea party/conservatives just need to keep showing their ideas.. just hammering away at this.

People like me who believed everything the MSM said about Bush no longer believe a word that comes from the MSM ignorant biased mouths. Since the MSM was the campaign manager for the fraud starting in 2008, not only is the party imploding so is the MSM that promoted and continues to promote their fraud product.

The Idealagoue-in-Chief will continue to act like a petulant child, and more and more people will get disgusted. The MSM is essentially irrelevant at this point, thank God for the internet, most of us can get information unfiltered.

and for the repub and/or tea party movement, all is needed a commercial:

"My fellow citizens, where were you the day before Christmas?   On December 24th, at 1AM, where were the 60 democrat senators? Voting for a bill no one had read and 60% of the American voters strongly opposed.  They abused the power given to them, my fellow citizens: would you want to take a chance to vote to give  them power again this November?"

Re: being delushional, did you see/hear Rush's letter to Obama after the SOTU?  He hammered him.  Snip:

 

This is a representative republic, not a banana republic, and let me remind you: Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky are not our Founding Fathers.  This is a nation built on individuality, built on liberty, free markets, and faith.  Yet you, Barack, demand fidelity to a different belief system: A system that crushes individual initiative and free will.  The president does not berate Supreme Court justices who are guests of the Congress and who have no ability to respond to your attacks.  You've made such a mess of things, Barack, and it's time to stop deluding yourself. It's time to stop blaming others.  You are delusional.  You are delirious.  It's time for you to assume the responsibilities of a president rather than pretending to be one.  

You've driven the nation's debt over the edge.  It is your responsibility to fix it now.  Otherwise, our young people will have no future.  You were wrong to grant terrorists constitutional rights. Even the libs in New York don't want the trial there now!  You, Mr. President, are endangering the security of this nation.  Now fix it!  Reverse course, and end the terrorists -- all of them -- back to Guantanamo Bay, where they belong.  You are wrong to nationalize one industry after another from automobiles to banks.  You are destroying competition and jobs.  You need to stop what you were doing before millions of more families go broke from your misguided policies.  It's not too late to stop this.  I know you're not going to stop it because last night you said you don't quit, and I know what you mean.  

You're gonna keep plugging for the same agenda, which is going to destroy this country even more -- which makes me think, Barack, that's your objective.  You know, Barack, unlike most presidents you're dealing with a Congress that has super majorities in both houses, fellow Democrats.  It amazes me that with all the talk about your ability to persuade and communicate, that you can't even hold your own party members together anymore.  Is that Bush's fault, too? Is it is fault of the banks and the insurance companies and the lobbyists that you can't keep your own Democrat Party unified -- or is it a problem with your leadership, Barack, or lack of leadership?  It's the latter, Mr. President. I'll tell you, you are not a leader. You are an agitator and an organizer, and a process guy, but you are not a leader.  It is you who are doing something wrong.

247 With output voltages being the same, they're obviously paralleling cells somewhere in the lashup.  The seriesed parallel cells will drain slower than a straight series setup of course, but if one cell fails, then the whole pack will degrade down to the mah capacity of a straight series setup before you see voltage drop and the whole thing shuts down due to that.

Depending on the intelligence of the charging design, a failed parallel cell could be benign and the net output of the pack simply degrade to a straight series pack.  Or, it might blow up or cause a fire as happens with LiPo's on occasion when they're a little fucked up.  Without knowing the specifics of any particular pack design and its charging apparatus, its hard to say exactly what's going to happen.

OTOH, if you have two simple seried packs, and one cell fails, you have one dead pack that's going to register 0V and refuse to charge, and another perfectly good pack.

Myself, I'd buy two ordinary packs.  That leaves you the flexibility to charge one offline while using another (if an offline charger is available), and the flexibility to keep the thing light if you don't want to tote the weight around.

"We've never seen a face-off quite like this between a President and members of the opposition party."  Katie Couric

"It was extraordinary.  Here at the White House, some believe this could be a game-changer for the President. As one official put it, this is the best thing the President has done in a very long time. "  Chip Reid

"Obama is one of the 1000 smartest people in America.  "I don`t know anyone else in the country that could have done what the president did today."  Chris Matthews 

(I can think of a few, Tingles, like Newt, Rush, Levin, Michael Medved.)

"They had 140 players on the field and the other guy had one, other team had one guy, and they lost to him. Obama is one of the 1000 smartest people in America."  Olbermann

What you just stated is the most important point that needs to be made when refering to Obama. He is an enemy of this nation. There's no other way to put it.  He's not even being discrete or subtle about.  He is doing everything he can to destroy the original America and make it into his likeness.

I consider him a traitor and an enemy.

253 Speaking of brilliant scholar Barry, his SOTU speech was written two grade-levels below stupid cowboy Bush's average.

I use the Flesch-Kincaid and some other metrics all the time when I write tech doc or presentations for management.  I try to keep the F-K down into the 9/10th grade level for those audiences.  Not because they're stupid, but because it takes less effort to read and comprehend when something is written to that level; IOW, they're less apt to go MEGO on you and actually read it. 

Lacking that conscious effort to simplify it, I'd otherwise tend to write formal shit on ~13th grade level.

If Obama's speech writer did this on purpose, it was a smart move since the SOTU's audience is the nation, not congress.  I suspect it happened accidentally due to the campaign'esque nature of the speech.

What the fuck is the matter with this asshole?
I really don't understand why, but this actually pisses me off more than anything he's done.  He had no right to do this.  The space program belongs to America, not to some one term President who just blew into town.
The space program was something the entire nation was proud of, no matter what your politics were (mostly).
Was this his revenge on America for not being stupid enough to buy bullshit?
Fuck this blows.

268 Being a MI resident, with Cherry at a 10 point disadvantage in the polls, teh DEMS know they are finished in MI. You do not have 8 years of Grandholm with a ruined economy and expect for them to keep the Governorship of this state. In many ways it is a foreboding of what can happen to Obama come 2012.   Many of this states problems were inherited from Engler, but Grandholm did jack squat to fix them, only good thing she did was sign the film incentives bill that brought jobs to this state. Big problem is that these are temporary crew jobs that came from CA (another economically ravaged state) and it will be a long time before this program creates and homegrown jobs.

From what I hear from local news, Cherry might not even run for GOV, but Grandholm's poor job performance has tainted the D brand in this state.

So I expect to see Obama try to stick his face in this states election in order to please his UAW buddies in Detroit.

269 267, basically Obama is having a tantrum trying to drive his radical agenda through NASA, because the public is turning on him. He know the clock is ticking and is trying to do as much damage as he can.

@250

Glenn Beck had a great line parodying Chris "Tingles" Mathews:

Beck said something to the effect that he watched the State of the Union address and forgot that Obama was an American for an hour!

272 Democrat deficits are smaller than republican deficits in a way. During three years of democrat control of congress they're 'monthly' deficit was only slightly smaller than the 'annual' deficts for 12 years of republican control of congress. Then every penny spent in 09 was voted on (yes) in congress or signed by the current POTUS.

273 Dear Jesus,

Being a hard-core conservative my entire life, I've seen some krazy shit. For example, human sacrifice. But I've moved past that and now I'm a solid republican. Being religious and shit, I realize that Obama is super awesome and needs our support. He is not a miracle worker and, as such, needs time to fix America's myriad problems. He will succeed if we support him, so lets do. God bless America and God bless Texas!!

274 It's too easy for people to notice, the layoffs, the people on your block unemployed, the bank for sale house, the closed stores, the reduced inventory everywhere ... The magic words no longer work, when the real world has such a divergence.

sheik Y ...

Is Obama leaving ?  Please say yes ...

Obama has reached the point of no return with his words.  People no longer beleive what he says.  He now needs to do something and not just match his deeds to his past words but do things that people want done.

He is now a hostage to the Democrats in Congress and their deeds.  He is being held accoutable for their actions as he should be.

No matter how many times he tries to blame the politics of DC people just don't care how he gets things done they just want something done about the economy.  Or at least do something that makes some sense.  Spending more borrowed money doesn't make sense to most Americans but Obama appears to be stuck on stupid.

279 from that Gallup org it looks like the only people that still really support Obama are the ones with graduate degrees that is still at 58% it is like only the smart people still support him

280 273, Could it be possible

We can have the first President AN HERO.

This is what the DEMS get for making Obama the Messiah. Maybe he is the messiah, we all know all messiah's all end up getting the same fate, Crucifixion.

So far it is the Tea baggers and teh voters who are crucifying him on a cross made up of his empty promises.

281 The reality here is that Obama is still well liked, but his policies and proposed legislation are not. The SOTU performed exactly what Bill Clinton tried to do.

The SOTU made Obama look once again like the “good guy” but voters are a little bit smarter than the average Democratic Congress-critter thinks, so they aren’t blaming Bush for Obama’s policies and proposed legislation, they are going to blame Congress. Obama’s “detachment” from the legislative process frames Congress as the “bad guys” as well.

Yeah. Call it a variant if you must, but it’s triangulation at it’s best and Congress doesn't even see it coming.

282 Rasmussien has him tied at 60-50 that is the highest in some time so maybe he did get a bounce

Posted by: sheik Yamani at February 01, 2010 03:11 AM (mhD2v)

283 And Gallup also plainly sttes that most SOTU speeches do not give the POTUS any bounce at all, Bush dropped 4 points after his
