President Barack Obama had an approval rating of just 38 percent as of late September and he is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year. This week, the man who once filled arenas like a rock star suffered the indignity of Wisconsin Democrats walking out on him as he stumped for another struggling Democrat, Mary Burke. Obama’s visit to Wisconsin coincided with the disappearance of Burke’s modest lead in statewide polls. She now trails her opponent, Scott Walker, by seven points.

The Republican gubernatorial candidate then enjoyed a nine-point polling boost. (RELATED: Obama Visits Maryland; Democrat Drops 9 Points?)

This month, President Barack Obama officially became the U.S. president to have been at war the longest — longer than Lyndon Johnson, longer than Abraham Lincoln and certainly longer than George W. Bush. Obama acquired the highly dubious honor on May 6, observes The New York Times.He’s not done yet, either. Far from it! With eight months left to go in his presidency, and with America’s military fighting in several places far-flung, Obama is virtually certain to be the only U.S. president to spend a full eight years presiding over combat. The Times describes Obama’s status as America’s biggest warmonger president as “an improbable legacy” because he ran as an anti-war candidate back in 2008 and promised to end the wars Bush started after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Obama has approved military action in seven countries in his seven full years as America’s 44th president. … [Read more...] about Nobel Peace Prize-Winning Obama Has Been At War LONGER THAN ANY OTHER American President
The Nobel Peace Prize committee demoted chairman Thorbjoern Jagland on Tuesday. The Oslo, Norway-based committee gave no reason for downgrading the former Norwegian prime minister and respected diplomat from his perch.At the same time, as German media conglomerate Deutsche Welle observes, Jagland was widely condemned in 2009 when his committee bestowed the prestigious award on then-newly elected President Barack Obama. Jagland, 64, was serving his first year as Peace Prize chairman when his committee conferred the international award upon Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” The committee announced that Obama would receive the award in October 2009, just over eight months after he became president. (RELATED: Remember When Obama Was The Messiah?) In response to a barrage of criticism, Jagland proclaimed that the Nobel committee’s goal was to hail Obama’s oratory about removing nuclear weapons … [Read more...] about Nobel Peace Prize Committee OUSTS Chairman Who Crowned Obama With $1.4 Million Award
The Obamas have spent over 44 million dollars in taxpayer money on travel and vacations. Some are even calling him the “most well-trvaeled, expensive” president in our nation’s history. As Americans head off for the long holiday weekend, let’s take a look back at some of the president’s holiday spending.Our president vacations a lot — we’re talking $44,351,777.12 worth of “a lot,” with most expenses charged to the American taxpayer. As of March 2014, Obama has spent more time traveling internationally than any other president, taking 31 trips since assuming office in 2009. The 119 days spent overseas have cost taxpayers millions of dollars. At the same point in their respective presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 116 days on 28 trips, Bill Clinton had spent 113 days on 27 trips and Ronald Reagan had spent 73 days on just 14 trips. In 2010, Obama flew aboard Air Force One 172 times, nearly every other day. Just the cost of flying … [Read more...] about The Obamas Have Spent Over $44,351,777.12 In Taxpayer Cash On Travel
