Obama Job Approval Soars To 2009 Levels But Conservatives Claim Mandate

President Obama‘s approval rating is soaring, his disapproval level is dropping, both to levels not seen since his first year in office, 2009, and all this while the GOP is threatening to take the country over the so-called “fiscal cliff.” The President today enjoys a 54% approval rating, and a 38% disapproval rating, according to Gallup’s Daily Tracking Poll.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports that “President Barack Obama won the public argument over taxes so decisively that almost half of Republicans now say he has an election mandate to raise rates on the rich.

Majorities of about 2-to-1 also read the election results as an endorsement of Obama’s pledge to protect Social Security and Medicare benefits, according to a Bloomberg National Poll of 1,000 adults conducted Dec. 7-10.

Of course, the GOP is in continual denial.

The Daily Caller reports today that more than “100 conservatives signed a letter Wednesday to congressional Republicans arguing that the House GOP has a ‘broader’ mandate to ‘fight for conservative principles’ than President Barack Obama has to push his own agenda.”

Addressing House Republicans, the conservatives wrote: “You have a mandate to fight for conservative principles that is arguably much broader than the one that narrowly reelected President Barack Obama claims to have for his leftist agenda.”

Those who signed the letter include: Ed Meese, Morton Blackwell, Gary Bauer, Richard Viguerie, Al Cardenas and Erick Erickson.

At what point does the American populace just tell the GOP to go pound salt?

It seems to me that Obama is the one threatening to take this country of the 'fiscal cliff.' His tax plan will only fund the government for eight days, and that's just more money out of the private sector. Remember that increasing taxes on the rich will affect people earning over $250,000 annually, not just the filthy rich millionaires and billionaires.

The article raises the question:

"At what point does the American populace just tell the GOP to go pound salt?"

The answer is short and sweet: The 2014 elections, of course!

Increasing taxes on the rich (200K – single dweller and above) will not help our economy. What Obama doesn't see is that the best way to help poverty is to create wealth or grow the economy. Obama is into taxing and spending. Especially taxing the rich. But Obama takes tax payer dollars and plays venture capitalist by putting billions into companies that are now doing badly or have gone bankrupt. Such as: A123, Solyndra, First Solar, Ecotality, Sun Power, Raser Technologies, Bright Source, Beacon Power and Abound Solar. Obamacare is causing companies to layoff due to taxation..Medronic, Boston Scientific, Stryker, Dana Holding Company, Welch Allyn, Smith & Nephew, Abbott Labs, Covidien, Kenetic Concepts, St Jude Medical and Hill Ron. These are just a few. The Government is to over see, not to take over. The unemployment rate is going down you say….only because the work force is shrinking. The labor Dept knows how to keep track of our work force. This is not just spin. Obama is on the wrong course.
