Obama plummets in latest polls. Even in California the president is in freefall.

Two new polls are out today (one national, the other in California) which underscore just how unimpressed Americans are with the president’s job performance. The latest McClatchy-Marist poll has Barack Obama’s job approval at its lowest level for nearly two years – just 41 percent. It’s his worst showing since September 2011, when his approval hit 39 percent. There can be little doubt that the wave of recent scandals has hurt the president’s standing, and undermined trust in the Administration, especially among Independents. The IRS debacle has been particularly damaging. The president’s floundering on foreign policy hasn’t helped either, with Americans disapproving of his performance in this area by a 48-41 percent margin. The president’s health care reforms are also a significant liability, with numerous polls showing strong public opposition to Obamacare.

If you have been wondering why we were graced with speeches from The Idiot King on consecutive days last week and have been promised yet another “Jobs Pivot Traveling Road Show!” this is why. Even the shiniest and happiest of the inner-circle Kool-Aid drinkers know that all is not well in the Magic Kingdom. The reason that Obama speeches are so vapid isn’t just that he is that way himself, it’s that they are rarely, if ever, meant to convey anything. They are almost always distractions to get you looking away from the train wreck.

So we look forward to seeing Obama pirouette back to the economy yet again. He's done this so many times he must be dizzy by now - maybe that can account for his incompetence. Perhaps he'd have better luck if he used his pirouette in a production of Swan Lake.

Obama's job approval rating may be down to 41 percent but, as he can't run again, it doesn't make much difference (as you noted, his approval rating hit 39 percent in 2011 but the turd still managed to get re-elected; thank-you so much, Republicans). He and his stooges in the alphabet agencies (e.g., DoJ, IRS, EPA, HHS) will continue to rule by fiat, continuing to make an end run around the Republican-controlled house. Until things get so bad that his enablers in the legacy media and Hollywood take notice and turn on him, the country will continue to circle the bowl. Forget Greece and Detroit; we're headed for Zimbabwe.

And to this I say, "So What?"

He has the Obamaphone people in his back pocket. They'll be on his side no matter what. The media will have the Boob Tube people back in shape in a little while and his approval rating will be back up.
