Majority Find Obama Dishonest, Untrustworthy

From the Politico:

Poll: Obamacare to hurt health care quality

By JOSE DELREAL | November 12, 2013

By a two-to-one margin, more Americans believe the Affordable Care Act will make the quality of their health care worse than better, according to a new poll.

A Quinnipiac survey released Tuesday shows that only 19 percent of Americans believe the quality of their healthcare will improve because of the ACA, while 43 percent think their care will worsen. Thirty-three percent believe the ACA will not affect their health care at all.

How is that possible? Obama is even now telling us that Obama-Care will force us all into much better plans for our own good. Why shouldn’t we believe him?

The same poll found that voters disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance, 54 percent to 39 percent, the lowest since Obama became president in 2009.

But the Politico is too polite to mention that detail in their headline or lead.

“President Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to the level of former President George W. Bush at the same period of his presidency,” Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in the report.

Even with the media trying to save him even harder than they tried to destroy Bush.

Backlash over the troubled rollout of the Affordable Care Act appears to be the primary culprit driving down the president’s approval ratings; 46 percent of voters believe the president “knowingly deceived” voters when the assured the public they would be able to keep their health insurance plans once the ACA was implemented.

Notice how the Politico tries to conflate the ‘roll-out,’ meaning the website glitches, with the cancellations of millions of health insurance policies. Which has nothing to do with the roll-out.

Forty-seven percent said they do not believe Obama knowingly deceived voters.

Probably the same 47% who pay no income tax and who expect to get their healthcare subsidized.

But for the first time since the president took office, the majority of Americans find him dishonest and untrustworthy, 52 percent to 44 percent.

Where have they been for the last six plus years? Obama even lied in his autobiographies. (He lied about his jobs and his girlfriends, etc.)

That’s a striking reversal from a poll released on Oct. 1 — conducted before HealthCare.gov launched — when 54 percent found him trustworthy compared to 41 who did not.

Obama’s approval rating dropped among key Democratic constituencies in the last month: 6 percentage point hit among independents, from 36 percent to 30 percent; 6 percentage points among women, from 46 percent to 40 percent; 8 percentage points among Hispanics, from 49 percent to 41 percent; and 15 percentage points among blacks, from 90 percent to 75 percent…

With any luck, ‘he hasn’t seen nothin’ yet.’

    “Where have they been for the last six plus years?”

    My thought exactly.

    And what hope is there for a country where 54 percent of the idiocracy don’t even recognize that they’ve been lied to (“knowingly deceived”)?

    You should know you’re in trouble when Bill Clinton has to lecture the President on honesty.

    Yet despite everything 44 percent still find Nerobama “honest and trustworthy.”

    And what hope where a hard-core 39 percent approve of his job performance?

    If any more proof were needed that Americans are incapable of self-government, this data would seem to confirm it.

      ” they do not believe Obama knowingly deceived voteers.”

      The way a Democrats brain works.

      pragmatistic account of what truth everywhere signifies.
      William James insisted that all knowledge is pragmatic.

      “in reaching this general conception of all truth,…, the successful stroke was always to take some simple process actually observable in operation – as denudation{To expose (rock strata) by erosion.}
      by weather, say, or variation from parental type, or change of dialect by incorporation of new words and pronunciations – and then to generalise it, making it apply to all times, and produce great results by summarising its effects through the ages.
      generalisation is the familiar one by which any individual settles into new opinions. The process here is always the same. The individual has a stock of old opinions already, but he meets a new experience that puts them to a strain. Somebody contradicts them; or in a reflective moment he discovers that they contradict each other; or he hears of facts with which they are incompatible; or desires arise in him which they cease to satisfy. The result is an inward trouble to which his mind till then had been a stranger, and from which he seeks to escape by modifying his previous mass of opinions. He saves as much of it as he can,So he tries to change first this opinion, and then that (for they resist change very variously), until at last some new idea comes up which he can graft upon the ancient stock with a minimum of disturbance of the latter, some idea that mediates between the stock and the new experience and runs them into one another most felicitously {suitable} and expediently.{believably}

      This new idea is then adopted as the” true one.” It preserves the older stock of truths with a minimum of modification, stretching them just enough to make them admit the novelty, but conceiving that in ways as familiar as the case leaves possible.”

    The only thing more pathetic than Obama’s ongoing deception is his insipid pleading innocence by claiming because of his ignorance.

    America! See What You Have Done!
