My answer is the same as all three of Longtoe's, except I didn't select any of the choices.

veratis, again change the direction of the poll. MDN did NOT report the death count at 51. They DID headline with breaking news the next day that the death rate was about 21 with more suspected.

As much as the MDN and the right wing want to make the items scandals, it will end up like the swift boat thing and Acorn. Lots of air about nothing. Bengazhi is a scandal only in right wing views. The FBI search is for individuals who disclosed secret and classified materials and that is where it will end up. As to the IRS controversy, I seriously doubt it has as much substance as our bloggers want and not enough to satisfy the Republicans. I would hope that the Republicans would start to govern the country instead of pursuing their five year goal to get the President. It is time to get on the jobs bill going that has been tabled in the house without discussion as well as other things that need the work of the full congress and not just half.

Obama would have to really do some ill advised activity to descend to the rating that Bush/Cheney slithered out of office with.

"I would hope that the Republicans would start to govern the country instead of pursuing their five year goal to get the President."

So centerish has given the President a free pass again, as far as that governing thingy.

Where's the spirit of bipartisanship that's been needed to get things done?

If "bipartisanship" now means "do it the President's way or else," sure, that spirit is alive and well in DC, and has been for the duration of President Obama's terms in office.

Like I said elsewhere, it's opinions that matter the most.

This should really derail the poll question: Five Benghazi suspects identified. More to follow.

No, whackos, they're not hiding in the WH basement.

Bush/Cheney had the lowest approval rating since Herbert Hoover's exit and introducing the American people into the worst depression this country has encountered.

Bush got a presidential library in Texas...now that would be embarrassing to have that in your state.

AP reports the 5 Benghazi suspects are not being "seized militarily" because the administration wants more evidence to try them in a civilian court.

Yeah, sure, that makes all the Benghazi questions go away just like magic. Poof.

What's so whacko about that?

I can't wait to see how much MHW will be fixated on President Obama, once he becomes a former president.

That seems to be all that matters.

Top IRS official refuses to testify at hearing, invokes 5th Amendment. Lois Lerner, the director of the IRS division that singled out conservative groups, invoked the Fifth Amendment Wednesday as she refused to testify at the start of a House oversight hearing on her agency's controversial program.

Lerner, before invoking that right, said in a brief opening statement that she had done nothing wrong, even though people might assume that by her decision not to answer questions from the committee.

"I have not done anything wrong," she said. "I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations, and I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee." obama fatigue...

Interesting that they didn't put in I told you so in the polls.

Many of us knew from the very first time Obama appeared in our view that he was a crook.

You don't spend 20 years in Rev Wrights church where the guy hates America, Or spend time in Chicago Senate without becoming corrupt.

Only fing idiots would believe this guy is straight.. He is as crooked, conniving, lying arrogant as they come.

So why is ANYONE shocked at his participation in any of these scandles.. And RR look up the word scandal.. Or are you too biased to look what the word means.. You and all the rest of us know these are criminal actions..

MHW: "worst depression this country has faced". Really? My Grandad skipped meals to make sure his wife and kids ate during the Great Depression of the 30's. I don't think You can compare our "Recession" to what happened back then. Besides, many Obama supporters did not lose their jobs as they didn't have one in the first place.

With the limited options on this poll I chose Embarassed because I'm embarassed the we have people like Obama and his administration running our great nation into the ground then claim I KNOW NOTHING. Well if they don't know anything they should be ousted from office, hopefully this will happen next election if we have a country left

The Minot Daily is poking fun at President Obama again. Anything to discredit the fool in the Oval Office is well worth the effort. A poll question that mocks the Obama Administration is better than expressing disgust in President Obama. Plenty of that out there and not enough mocking of President Obama. No scandal necessary to make a fool of Obama.

I guess nobody would be happy about any kind of scandal.

Congress has been trampling on the Constitution for decades and curbing the rights of individuals with one law after another.

Except for them, when they need to have some protection of their privacy and rights, the gov workers are the first to state the rule of law and invoke the Constitution to protect their sorry hides.

For Average Joe, it's a different story.

Going back to the 33rd President, for the average approval rating. Truman at 45.4, Ford at 47.2, Carter at 45.5,Bush GW at 49.4 and obama at 49.0. All the other President's had a higher average approval rating.
