No wonder these clowns have spent the better part of the past month talking about impeachment. They may really want him gone.
Voters are less likely to vote for congressional Democrats because they are disappointed with how President Obama is handling his job, according to a new poll released Monday by McClatchy.
By a 42-32 percent margin, voters say that because of the president, they’re more likely to vote for a Republican candidate this fall. And, for the first time, Republicans are winning the generic ballot measure, with voters more likely to say they’d vote for a GOP candidate by a 43-38 percent margin.
The troubling signs for Democrats are due in no small part to the president’s dwindling approval rating. Just four in 10 say they approve of how Obama is handling his job, tying for the lowest level in three years.
Only a third of voters say they like the president’s approach on foreign policy — the lowest marks of his presidency — and only 39 percent approve of his handling of the economy, despite steady stock market and jobs gains.
Speaking of Obama’s dreadful foreign policy, he reacted maturely to criticism of his failed Syria policy.
President Obama recently told lawmakers that their criticism of his policy in Syria is “horse****,” according to a report published late Monday.
A member of Congress told The Daily Beast Obama used the expletive during a July 31 meeting at the White House just before the August recess.
Another lawmaker also said that the president got visibly angry after both Democrats and Republicans questioned the administration’s policy.
Many lawmakers and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have urged Obama to arm Syrian rebels to push back at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, attended the meeting and asked a long question in which he sharply criticized a series of U.S. foreign policies, one lawmaker said.
Obama responded by defending the administration’s approach in Syria, arguing that the idea that arming the rebels earlier would have produced a better outcome was “horse****,” the lawmaker told The Daily Beast.
