The president’s 19th pivot to jobs didn’t convince anyone that Barack Obama actually has any ideas to help the economy.

PRINCETON, NJ — Despite President Barack Obama’s renewed focus on the nation’s economy this summer, he scores worse with Americans on the economy than he did in June. His approval rating on the issue, now 35%, is down seven percentage points, and his ratings on taxes and the federal budget deficit are each down five points. During the same period, his overall approval rating is down three points.

Obama’s answer: Raise taxes by fiat. That’s gonna go over big.

But, by circumventing Congress, he’ll own that tax increase entirely.

So, look, rodeo clown!

I'm surprised his economic approval rating is as high as 35%. Obamacare and his other policies are obviously strangling economic growth and wealth creation, and destroying the middle class. His disregard of law and the constitution is creating an atmosphere of uncertainty that means businesses cannot plan for growth and capitalists are loathe to risk their wealth. Only diehard fascists and dedicated socialists should be able to find any thing to approve of in Obama's economic world.

To paraphrase some malignant, incompetent cow:

At this point, what difference does it make?

A lot of those "disapprovers" voted for this clown. The Romney campaign was never able to sell the idea to enough people that he would do a better job on the economy that Obama. That fact that Romney would have done better by a country mile was lost on too many people.

So here we are. Whoopee.

The 35% who approve probably fall almost entirely into two groups: the very wealthy who agree with Obama and are functionally immune to a bad economy and very low-information types who believe that any economic problem is caused by Republicans. You know, like the people who say the GOP killed Detroit.
