Hater of the Week: Republicans in America

April 27, 2009

I try not to be surprised, but I can’t help it… I am an optimist.  I always think things are going to turn around.  But, this is going to be something that will just stick with us.  Republicans hate Obama, but the Klan loves him…

That N@##er is going to lower my taxes and keep me and my white power loving family safe...A womans place is in the home or making babies... GO OBAMA! (The writers and owners of Too Old do not condone this message...)

For all of his hopes about bipartisanship, Barack Obama has the most polarized early job approval ratings of any president in the past four decades. The 61-point partisan gap in opinions about Obama’s job performance is the result of a combination of high Democratic ratings for the president — 88% job approval among Democrats — and relatively low approval ratings among Republicans (27%).

By comparison, there was a somewhat smaller 51-point partisan gap in views of George W. Bush’s job performance in April 2001, a few months into his first term. At that time, Republican enthusiasm for Bush was comparable to how Democrats feel about Obama today, but there was substantially less criticism from members of the opposition party. Among Democrats, 36% approved of Bush’s job performance in April 2001; that compares with a 27% job approval rating for Obama among Republicans today.

The next Hater groups are PUMAS.  They think that because their chosen candidate to solve all the worlds problems didn’t get elected, then lets pray that Obama screws America up so royally, then their candidate can get a shot. (in 2016, since we know that he is going to win another match-up)

But, in the words of Maino, Hi Haters!

I have reasons supported by facts to hate Sarah Palin....

Your poster boy, Bill Clinton, who as a president, I don’t have much bad to say about him (except you let Rwanda happen on your watch and you were taking head shots on the company dime) or his reign as Commander in Chief. With that said, Obama beat the brakes off him in looking at the polls during their first days in office.

The partisan gap in Bill Clinton’s early days was also substantially smaller than what Obama faces, largely because Democrats were less enthusiastic about Clinton. In early April 1993, 71% of Democrats approved of Clinton’s job performance, which is 17 points lower than Obama’s current job approval among Democrats. Republican ratings of Clinton at that point (26%) are comparable to their current ratings of Obama today (27%).

The growing partisan divide in presidential approval ratings is part of a long-term trend. Going back in time, partisanship was far less evident in the early job approval ratings for both Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon. In fact, a majority of Republicans (56%) approved of Carter’s job performance in late March 1977, and a majority of Democrats (55%) approved of Nixon’s performance at a comparable point in his first term.

People are so caught up in partisan rhetoric, they are willing to suffer incredible consequences, just so that they can say they were right, and the rest of us were wrong.  I really wonder if PUMAS have looked at the other people who are satisfied with the way things are going.  There only response for disagreement is ridicule.  Fortunately for me, that just makes me stronger.  I thrive on your hatred and it fuels my laughter when your  fears don’t happen.

It seems that people in the different eras were more concerned with getting it right, than if their particular person won.  Today, there would be no way that a Democrat (or at least one that aligned with the Democratic Party) would find themselves supporting Nixon, but he was the one that opened the lines of communication with China.  People in the past recognized accomplishments and rewarded with more trust.

Obama, you have earned my trust and more Americans feel that way.  PUMAS, you are fighting a lost cause…Here is what Obama did to your political party

Your silly infighting did the rest!  Thanks, and have a nice day!

    WOW, I didn’t know Big O’s #’s were so high. Very cool. But the other part of me thinks of history and the way Reagan got high approval ratings in 1980 b/c everyone blamed Carter for the bad economy. That high only lasted about a year then things turned for the worse in ’81 for Reagan.
    Instead I think we should look further back to the two before the polls that are oddly not mentioned. I’m sure b/c they were the only that Obama hadn’t beat. Kennedy and Eisenhower were LEADERS that took on the job for the American people’s sake not their own unlike those that followed (sans LBJ). Obama continues their legacy not the Nixon, Bushes, and Clintons. People CAN see the difference thus the high #’s.
