Is this idiot for real?
President Obama told his Chinese counterpart in a private meeting that the American public and business community are growing increasingly “frustrated” with China’s economic policies, stepping up his bid to force changes that might in turn boost job growth in the U.S.
With complaints about China’s currency policy spilling into the Republican presidential contest and onto the floor of the Senate, Obama told Chinese President Hu Jintao on Saturday that his government is not moving quickly enough to remedy the problem, U.S. officials said.
Obama “made it very clear that the American people and American business community were growing increasingly impatient and frustrated with the state of change,” said Michael Froman, deputy national security advisor for international economic affairs.
Meanwhile, a record number of Americans have expressed frustrations with Obama’s economic policies.
President Obama’s ratings on the the most important issue for his re-election — the economy — have posted the weakest showing of his presidency, according to a poll released Friday by CBS News.
About 60 percent of voters said they disapprove of Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy, the highest on record. Just 34 percent approve of the job he is doing on the matter.
His overall approval ratings are just 43 percent, while 47 percent disapprove of the job he is doing as president.
Among independents, just 39 percent are satisfied with his performance, while 76 percent of Democrats and 12 percent of Republicans approve of his job performance.
Those 76 percent of Democrats must really enjoy misery.
