Obama Not Concerned With Poll Numbers

Well, He Should Be

U.S. President Barack Obama

U.S. President Barack Obama held a town hall styled meeting today in Ohio's Lorain County, defending his position on a number of issues that have earned him very poor marks in the national polls. The President's poll numbers continue to plummet.

Obama stated there is transparency in his government, but at the time of this writing, it does not appear so. Opening up White House visitor logs to the public, whilst your foot soldiers up and down Pennsylvania Ave engage in egregious violations of the Constitution, they poorly attempt to cover up, is not transparency. Never will be.

Obama's Department of Justice, headed up by Eric Holder and his FBI, misled by Robert S. Mueller, are crookedly circumventing the U.S. Constitution on a daily basis and hiding items from the American people. That is not transparency.

Obama also continues to push his health care bill that Scott Brown's Massachusetts win destroyed. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally admitted the Democrats, led by Obama, do not have enough votes to push through the President's health care bill in its current state, due to the loss that occurred in Massachusetts.

What's apparent is many Americans, all over the internet, did not like many facets of the health care bill and posted on many websites' feedback sections and forums in this regard. They should be listened to, as they are the Electorate.

Speaking of that, it is not wise to ignore the polls. Falling poll numbers mean public dissatisfaction is growing and spreading. So, unless you don't want a second term in office, you need to start paying attention to those poll numbers and what's behind them.

Obama, live and 'fighting' from Ohio

In a particularly emotional moment, Obama said he was not concerned about poll numbers. His job approval rating is hovering around 50 percent, down from about 70 percent when he took office.

"This is not about me. It's you. I didn't take up this issue to boost my poll numbers. You know the way to boost your poll numbers is not do anything. That's how you do it. You don't offend anybody. I'd have real high poll numbers. All of Washington would be saying, what a genius," he said.

Obama, in what sounded like an admission that he had become detached from everyday Americans, said it was a "little confining" living in the protective bubble of the White House.

"I can't just walk around and visit people like I used to. I can't just go to the barber shop or sit at a diner," he said...
