Chairman Zero Is Not America's Hero

It was with a glum editorial hand that The Washington Post discussed their WaPo/ABC poll, revealing that 6 in 10 Americans think Obama is a big zero when it comes to confidence-inspiring leadership.

Four months before midterm elections that will define the second half of his term, nearly six in 10 voters say they lack faith in the president to make the right decisions for the country, and a clear majority once again disapproves of how he is dealing with the economy.
On the issues tested in the poll, Obama's worst ratings come on his handling of the federal budget deficit, where 56 percent disapprove and 40 percent approve. He scores somewhat better on health-care reform (45 percent approve) and regulation of the financial industry (44 percent). His best marks come on his duties as commander in chief, with 55 percent approving.
Obama's overall standing puts him at about the same place President Bill Clinton was in the summer of 1994, a few months before Republicans captured the House and Senate in an electoral landslide.

Prog trolls can read on in the article about Reagan's even lower numbers at the same point in his presidency. But at least Reagan wasn't an inexperienced community organizer in moderate's clothing who campaigned on a bipartisanship lie but was hell-bent on radically transforming ruining America. You always knew where Ronaldus Magnus stood. With Obama, we have a radical, racist, anti-corporate, anti-American empty suit that barely casts a shadow on a summer day.

Yes, Americans have even less confidence in Congress than they do in The One, and yes, many mistrust the Republicans as much or more than the Democrats. Which, given the Tea Party resentment of the plentiful RINO herd on Capitol Hill, is unsurprising.

About seven in 10 registered voters say they lack confidence in Democratic lawmakers and a similar proportion say so of Republican lawmakers.

Which makes one wonder where the Real Zero is when you really need him.


Chairman Zero has noting on this guy.
