WH Spokeshole Gibbs Slams Low Gallup Poll As 'Kids With Crayons'

The new Gallup poll shows Prez Zero with an approval rating of 47%..and that's in a poll that normally skews towards Obama. I won't even go into Rasmussen, and some of the others, who are even lower.

Historically, it's the lowest rating in history (and the biggest slide)for any president in US history at this point in his administration.

Instead of thinking about what this might mean, the White House chose to respond with its characteristic arrogance, emanating from White House spokeshole Robert Gibbs:

"I tell you, if I was a heart patient and Gallup was my EKG, I'd visit my doctor," Gibbs said. "If you look back, I think five days ago, there was an 11-point spread, now there's a 1-point spread. I mean, I'm sure a 6-year-old with a crayon could do something not unlike that. I don't put a lot of stake in, never have, in the EKG that is the daily Gallup trend."

He added: "I don't pay a lot of attention to the meaninglessness of it."

I assure you, this mouthy lil' punk wasn't talking that way when the polls were in Zero's favor 11 months ago...not at all.

Six-year-olds with a crayon, hmmm? In a poll that normally skews towards Obama?

Oh, some more good news...while Zero's approval rating is plummeting downwards, Sarah Palin's has been rising...and according to the polls, Sarah Palin's approval rating is only one point below Obama's ..and climbing. The two lines will no doubt cross on th echarts shortly, just like Obama's approval and disapproval ratings already have..

Polls only mattered when they were slamming Bush. Not they are are meaningless. THROW OUT THESE DUNCES, THESE MORONIC BUMS! We deserve a better government.

You seem like a Palin supporter. Perhaps you can answer the following question.

Given the fact that she quit mid stream as Governor of Alaska, she has no chance to win an election of any type for any office. Who ever her opponent is in either a general election or a primary will have a field day with this. The line of thought will be, "she quit in Alaska when the going got tough. How do we know she won't quit as POTUS when the going gets tough." I see no way she can get around this. To the best of my knowledge she has not offered much in the way of an explanation for this.

How does she get around this? I'm just curious. For the record, at this point I neither support her nor don't support her as a candidate. In my mind, she is little more than a political pundit right now. Its hard to grasp what the big deal is with regards to the media dislike of her and the Republican elites dislike of her.

Hi Poster,
First, I suggest you read Governor Palin's own explanation of why she resigned in her book, 'Going Rogue'.

Given that it has already sold over 2.5 million copies ( and we haven't even really hit the Xmas buying season or the paperwork editions yet)quite a few Americans are going to read what happened in her own words, and I think that will go a long way towards neutralizing this issue.

In my own words,(not hers) she resigned,briefly:

(a)because there was an organized attempt to bankrupt her and her family by her political opponents, a number of whom have been linked to that Obama campaign and the White House. They did via spurious 'ethics complaints' all of which were tossed out of court but ended up saddling her and her family with a half a million dollars in legal costs - and they were not wealthy people at the time.That's in edition to the time and aggravation involved.Not to mention the effect it had on her ability to do her job.

B)If she had any serious political ambitions for the future, she unfortunately needed to get out of Alaska.People who have never been there have no conception of the distance involved.Anchorage, for example, is farther away from Los Angeles than Los Angeles is from DC, believe it or not. She now has the time and freedom to speak and travel in the Lower 48 that she lacked as Alaska's governor.

Do I like Sarah Palin? Very much. I have ever since I had a chance to meet her in Alaska before she went national, and in many ways she strikes me as Reagan redux, America's answer to Margaret Thatcher..only in an all American down to earth way.

She could not be more different than the stoo-pid hillbilly portrayed by the media, and the fact that the Left hates her so bitterly ought to give people a clue as to how effective a candidate she would be if she decides to run.

We deserve a better government.

the above statement implies that sound government is owed us.
it is not.
not in a constitutional republic.
we deserve the government we get.
if, on the other hand, we are prepared to hold those we elect accountable to established law and sound economic principles, we would still deserve the government we get.
but in the later case, we can do no better.

Thanks for the reply to my post. I remember you wrote about the attempt to bankrupt her and her family. If she explains her decision to resign as governor of Alaska that way, this may work to deflect this issue. Unfortunately I think she waited to long. As for Alaska being a long way from the rest of the US, I don't think that will work. After all, will she quit her next political job when something better comes along or so will be the questions an opponent will raise.

In any event, thanks for sharing your opinion on this. I think its going to be very difficult for her to overcome this. Perhaps she can. Time will tell. While I thin she would be a vast improvement over what we currently have, I still don't quite understand what the big deal about her is either among her supporters or her detractors. She is simply a political commentator right now. Nothing more, nothing less right now.

Hey Rob-

You know that pollster of Hillary's that got $6 mil of the stimulus money to save three jobs? That Penn guy?

Do you think he does his polls with a crayon, too?
