Fusion Magazine: Anatomy of a decline: Obama Timeline

Over the past few months, you may have seen some polls taken by Obama-approved news outlets that, if you're like me, left you scratching your head like a lice-infected third-grader. “Public Option Gains Support: Clear Majority Now Backs Plan,” hyperventilated the Washington Post in October 2009. “Survey Shows Most Americans Approve of Government Intervention in Health Care Coverage,” bragged CBS in June, channeling their inner Richard Dawson.

Why do these polls (and media slobber in general) constantly fly in the face of Obama's actual approval rating and his inability to pass almost anything, even with envious majorities in Congress? Well, admits CBS: “When a specific dollar amount is included in the question, support drops.” Duh. In other words, once the public learns the details, no one's onboard the Obama train, be it health care, cap and trade, the stimulus —you name it.

Fact is, since Obama set foot into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., his approval rating has dropped consistently, and one can clearly tie this to his disastrous policies, as I'm about to show you.

All our ratings come from Rasmussen Reports. The approval index reflects the percentage of Americans who “strongly approve” of Obama's presidency vs. the percentage who “strongly disapprove.” Keep in mind, as you read through this chart: History has proven that, when there's a big gap in the approval index, and the advantage goes to those who “strongly disapprove,” a president's in trouble—and this one sure is.

OBAMA QUOTE: "If we don't act immediately, then millions more jobs will disappear; the national unemployment rates will approach double digits; more people will lose their homes and their health care.

APPROVAL INDEX: -8 (30% S/A, 38% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: The approval rating and index both reach all-time lows simultaneously: 51% and -8% respectively. It's worth noting that the index takes a six-point drop in three days.

EVENT: Obamacare: It becomes clear by this point that the president wants to ram an awful bill through Congress before the August recess. (The gory details of Pelosi's HR 3200 are officially released on 7/14/09.) Also, the stimulus proves to be a bust: unemployment reaches 9.5% around this time, or higher than what Obama promised we might face had we not passed his stimulus.

OBAMA QUOTE: "Now, I know one of the biggest questions on everybody's mind is how do we pay for all this, how do we finance reform? And I have made a commitment, because our deficit is a genuine problem, that whatever we do we have to pay for it.

APPROVAL RATING: 49%

APPROVAL INDEX: -8 (30% S/A, 38% S/D)

EVENT: Gates-Gate. When, after admitting he didn't have all the facts of the case during a prime-time news conference, Obama said the police "acted stupidly" in arresting his friend Harvard Prof. Henry Louis Gates.

OBAMA QUOTE: "I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That's just a fact." — 7/22/09, prime time press conference.

POLLING SUMMARY: The approval index takes another quick, noticeable drop: Five points in three days. Obama's overall approval rating still rests below 50%.

EVENT: Town halls heat up as Americans learn more details about Obamacare. Obama's economically illiterate pitches are also revealed as lies, as past instances of him advocating a single-payer system pop up on YouTube.

OBAMA QUOTE: "People say, well, how can a private company compete against the government?... If you think about it, UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? No, they are. It's the Post Office that's always having problems!" — 8/11/09, in New Hampshire at a (stacked) town hall.

EXTRA NUGGET: Flashback! "I happen to be a proponent of single-payer, universal health care plan."

— 2003, Sen. Obama to the AFL-CIO.

  
9.DATE: 9/01/09

APPROVAL RATING: 45%

APPROVAL INDEX: -11 (30% S/A, 41% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: The approval rating reaches an all-time low, with the approval index now in negative double digits.

APPROVAL RATING: 48%

APPROVAL INDEX: -10 (30% S/A, 40% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: One of the fastest drops in the approval index: Five points in just three days.

EVENT: After Obama's naïve UN appearance (and the Mahmoud-Moammar show at Turtle Bay), it's revealed that Iran has been hiding a secret nuclear site after all. The president is largely seen as oblivious to the world's evils.

OBAMA QUOTE: "We remain committed to serious, meaningful engagement with Iran to address the nuclear issue[.]" — 9/25/09, statement at the G20 meeting about our new knowledge of Iran's nuclear deceptions.

  
11.DATE: 10/16/09

APPROVAL RATING: 47%

APPROVAL INDEX: -11 (28% S/A, 39% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: A big drop on both fronts: The approval index loses eight points in six days, while Obama's overall approval rating, after climbing back

up to 50% on Oct. 10, drops another three points.

EVENT: A culmination of events: Obama's Nobel Peace

Prize draws attention to how much he hasn't accomplished. It's also revealed that we've lost a net 3.6 million jobs. But the main reason for the drop is likely Obamacare's escape from committee (with the help of Republican Olympia Snowe), which brings us one giant step closer to socialism.

OBAMA QUOTE: "I want to particularly thank Sen. Olympia Snowe for both the political courage and the seriousness of purpose that she's demonstrated throughout this process… As a result of these efforts, we are now closer than ever before to passing health reform. But we're not there yet. Now is not the time to pat ourselves on the back." — 10/13/09, Rose Garden statement.

  
12.DATE: 10/22/09

APPROVAL RATING: 47%

APPROVAL INDEX: -13 (26% S/A, 39% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: Obama's approval index and overall approval rating, while not at all-time lows, reach the

lowest they've been in over a month. It's also worth noting that the number of Americas who "strongly approve" of Obama reaches an all-time low on this date: just 26%.

EVENT: War on Fox News/media isolation operations: Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Mao-quoting Communications Director Anita Dunn, and eventually Obama himself all trash Fox on a media blitzkrieg this week. A crescendo is reached on this day when the White House tries to ban Fox from participating in an interview with "pay czar" Kenneth Feinberg, a move that shocks even the "mainstream media."

OBAMA QUOTE: "If [media] is operating basically as a talk-radio format, then that's one thing, and if it's operating as a news outlet, then that's another. But it's not something I'm losing a lot of sleep over." — 10/22/09, on NBC News.

EXTRA NUGGET: "[Fox is] really not news. It's pushing a point of view and the bigger thing is that other news organizations, like yours, ought not to treat them that way and we're not going to treat them that way."

— 10/18/09, Chief Obama adviser David Axelrod, telling the media how to behave, to George Stephanopoulos on ABC News' "This Week."

APPROVAL RATING: 45%

APPROVAL INDEX: -15% (27% S/A, 42% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: Obama's approval index and overall approval rating reach an all time low.

EVENT: On the eve of Obama's speech regarding Afghanistan and Pakistan, speculation grows over whether he will deploy additional troops to the region.

  
14.DATE: 12/22/09

APPROVAL RATING: 44%

APPROVAL INDEX: -21 (25% S/A, 46% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: Even though the overall approval rating rebounded a bit from November, the number of people who "strongly approve" is at an all time low.

EVENT: The Ben Nelson-buyoff, or the middle-of-the-night cloture vote on health care that passes the Senate against the wishes of the American people, bringing us one step closer to government-run health care.

OBAMA QUOTE: "These are big reforms. If passed, this will be the most important piece of social policy since the Social Security Act in the 1930s."

— 12/24/09, State Dining Room remark.

  
15.DATE: 1/09/10

APPROVAL RATING: 46%

APPROVAL INDEX: -17 (26% S/A, 43% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: The approval index drops a hefty 7 points in three days.

EVENT: Transparency, or lack thereof, regarding the health care debate. Candidate Obama promised a whopping eight times during the campaign to televise (and stream) any and all health care negotiations on C-SPAN, only to blatantly break the promise less than a year after being sworn in. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even happily admitted her troops will be hashing out the plan "...behind closed doors according to an agreement by top Democrats."

OBAMA QUOTE: "But they [the Clintons] made one really big mistake [regarding healthcare], and that is they took all their people and all their experts into a room and then they closed the door… We will work on, uh, this process, publically. It'll be on C-SPAN. It'll be streaming over the net." — 11/18/09, Obama, Google Q and A.

  
16.DATE: 1/23/10

APPROVAL RATING: 44%

APPROVAL INDEX: -19 (24% S/A, 43% S/D)

POLLING SUMMARY: Obama matches his lowest overall approval rating to date (44%), and the approval index drops 8 points in four days.

EVENT: In short, Obama fatigue. As the president celebrates his one-year anniversary in office, attention is brought to how little he's accomplished—and how much of his agenda isn't transparent. To wit: Even the drooling Euro paper Der Spiegel writes: "The end of the Obama revolution — The euphoria is gone, the friendly fire has started: Barack Obama is suddenly looking less like a superstar and more like just another candidate." Furthermore, Republican Scott Brown's win in Massachusetts highlights just how unpopular this president is, even in the bluest of blue states.

OBAMA QUOTE: "The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry, and they're frustrated. Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years."

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a transgender activist called for a "Supreme Court Assassination Challenge" on Twitter, according to screenshots captured of the now-deleted tweet.

Activist Eli Erlick, a founding member of Trans Student Educational Resources (TSER) and creator of the controversial "gender identity" teaching tool for children called the "Gender Unicorn," tweeted and later deleted the disturbing remark on Friday, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) also caught a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted.

"The unhinged radical left is calling for the assassination of our Supreme Court Justices. That's not the way to disagree with a decision in America. It is unacceptable, and Biden’s DOJ must immediately act," Blackburn responded on Twitter.

Erlich then tried to play off her call to assassinate Supreme Court justices as a hilarious joke only Gen Z and Millennials would understand, apparently not understanding the seriousness of the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just three weeks ago.

Erlick isn't the only Left-winger to make incendiary calls since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Here are just a few examples:

  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on people to “defy" the Supreme Court.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called for people to get “into the streets” alongside radical communist leader who wants to 'overthrow' the American system.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) yelled "F*** Clarence Thomas" on a public stage for all to see and hear.
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress.
  • And of course, "TheView" host Whoopi Goldberg issued a disgusting racist threat toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program, BlazeTV hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere took a look at these and other stunning examples of leftist lunacy over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

Build up or tear down.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
