Obama Attacks Gallup; children with crayons pollsters? oh boo hoo hoo, BHO!

More Americans than not
see Obama as a problem
not a solution.

President Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to 47 percent in the latest Gallup poll, the lowest ever recorded for any president at this point in his term.

Obama’s 47 Percent Approval Lowest of Any President at This Point

Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and even Richard Nixon all had higher approval ratings 10-and-a-half months into their presidencies. Obama’s immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush, had an approval rating of 86 percent, or 39 points higher than Obama at this stage. Bush’s support came shortly after he launched the war in Afghanistan in response to the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said he doesn’t “put a lot of stock” in the survey by Gallup, which has conducted presidential approval polls since 1938, longer than any other organization.

“If I was a heart patient and Gallup was my EKG, I’d visit my doctor,” Gibbs said in response to questions from Fox. “I’m sure a six-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 daily Gallup trend. I don’t pay a lot of attention to the meaninglessness of it.”

The next 11 presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, all had higher job approval ratings than Obama at this stage of their tenure. Their ratings were:

— George W. Bush, 86 percent
— Bill Clinton, 52 percent
— George H.W. Bush, 71 percent
— Ronald Reagan, 49 percent
— Jimmy Carter, 57 percent
— Gerald Ford, 52 percent
— Richard Nixon, 59 percent
— Lyndon Johnson, 74 percent
— John Kennedy, 77 percent
— Dwight Eisenhower, 69 percent
— Harry Truman, 49 percent

    Tiger Woods TV Ads Disappear After Reports of Affairs (Update2)

    By Brett Pulley and Michael Buteau

    Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) — Advertisements featuring Tiger Woods have disappeared from prime-time broadcast television and many cable channels following reports of his extramarital affairs, according to data from Nielsen Co.

    The last prime-time ad featuring the 33-year-old golfer was a 30-second Gillette Co. spot on Nov. 29, according to New York- based Nielsen. Woods also was absent from ads on a number of weekend sports programs, including NFL games, Nielsen said.

    “Last weekend there wasn’t any advertisement during those games,” said Aaron Lewis, a spokesman at Nielsen.

    The No. 1 ranked golfer’s standing with the public has plunged in the wake of reports of infidelity that followed a Nov. 27 car accident outside his home near Orlando, Florida. Woods’s ranking among celebrity endorsers tumbled to 24th from 6th, according to the Davie Brown Index, which is used to gauge the ability of personalities to influence shoppers.

    Woods has endorsement agreements with Accenture Plc, Nike Inc., PepsiCo Inc.’s Gatorade, Tag Heuer International SA watches, Electronic Arts Inc. and Procter & Gamble Co.’s Gillette. Neither Mark Steinberg, Woods’s agent, nor Glenn Greenspan, a spokesman, responded to phone messages or e-mails seeking comment.

    The golfer’s $110 million in annual income from endorsements and tournaments, as estimated by Forbes magazine, hinges on his standing with consumers. Woods ranked as the world’s fourth-highest paid celebrity in the 12 months through June 30, the magazine said. In October, he became the first athlete to top $1 billion in career earnings.

    Web Site Statement

    Woods posted a statement on his Web site on Dec. 2 saying he let his family down with “transgressions” and hasn’t been true to his “family values.” He didn’t address reports of infidelity that appeared in media including US Weekly magazine.

    “His sponsors will attempt to limit his face time,” Andy Donchin, director of media investments at Carat North America, an advertising agency in New York, wrote today in an e-mail. “The best thing he can do is get back on a golf course.”

    Fifteen different advertisements featuring Woods have appeared during prime time since the beginning of June, according to Nielsen. Those included spots for Gillette, Accenture, Electronic Arts and the PGA. Most had stopped running as the PGA golf season wound down, prior to Woods’s accident. A Gillette ad that also included baseball player Derek Jeter was still running, according to Nielsen.

    Withdrew From Tourney

    Following the car accident, Woods withdrew from last weekend’s Chevron World Challenge on NBC, an event he has hosted since 1999 to benefit his charitable foundation. Other than an announcement of his absence by TV host Dan Hicks, there was no other mention and the network didn’t air any ads featuring Woods in two days of coverage, according to the New York Post.

    Gillette is running its media schedule as planned and no Tiger Woods ads have been pulled, said Mike Norton, a company spokesman. He wouldn’t comment on the frequency of the ads.

    Nike’s golf division isn’t changing its advertising plans, Beth Gast, a spokeswoman for the Beaverton, Oregon-based company, said in an e-mail.

    Lisa Gordon-Miller, a spokeswoman for Dublin-based Accenture, had no immediate comment. Electronic Arts wasn’t running any Woods ads and hasn’t changed its marketing, said David Tinson, a spokesman for the Redwood City, California-based video-game publisher.

    Woods’s continued relationships with corporate sponsors may hinge on factors including their duration, his importance to their brand images, the target audience and how much money is at stake, according to attorneys experienced in celebrity contract enforcement.

    Celebrity Contracts

    While contracts typically contain behavior clauses, terminations for morality are rare, said Douglas Wood, a partner in the New York office of Pittsburgh-based Reed Smith LLP and general counsel to the Association of National Advertisers.

    “It has to be pretty bad, where the artist is someone who has fallen pretty far,” Wood said today in a telephone interview.

    The attorney, who has had no involvement with the golfer’s endorsements, said he doubted sponsors such as Gillette and Nike would rush to end their contracts.

    Woods ranked just below Oprah Winfrey and above Bill Cosby on the Davie Brown Index, which tracks 2,800 celebrities. Now he is between actress Julia Roberts and former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell. The Davie Brown Index was created by Los Angeles-based Davie Brown Entertainment to provide a way to measure the use of celebrities in campaigns.

    Temporary Decline

    The decline in marketability may be temporary, said Chris Anderson, a spokesman for the index.

    “This type of swing is caused by major events — winning the Super Bowl MVP Award or, as with this case, an intense personal crisis,” Anderson said in an e-mail. “Typically, over time, the scores settle back.”

    Woods is the best-known active athlete, based on a September study by Marketing Evaluations, a Manhasset, New York- based research company that publishes the Q score, ranking entertainers by their appeal to consumers.

    Among U.S. consumers over the age of six, 86 percent recognized the golfer, with 28 percent saying Woods was one of their favorite personalities, giving him a +28 Q Score.

    The average celebrity is recognized by 32 percent of the U.S. general population and has a +17 Q rating, according to Henry Schafer, the company’s executive vice president.

    The company plans to conduct another survey at the end of January, Schafer said.

    “We don’t like to take measurements immediately after any negative social incident,” Schafer said. “We want the consumer to digest things as much as possible.”

    While Woods’s popularity may be down, visits to golf.com, owned by Time Warner Inc.’s Sports Illustrated, have more than quadrupled, according to Scott Novak, a Sports Illustrated spokesman.

    I like Rose’s style. Even though she is a liberal she does bring a different a perspective to the debate and sometimes I can agree with her point of view( but not often. lol) Still she can present her points of view in a mature way without getting belligerent and defensive (most of the time lol) like most liberals get when you don’t see things their way. Anyway welcome back Rose!

    Virginia Veteran Wins Battle to Keep His Flagpole in Yard

  13. samiam60 says:

    RICHMOND, Va. — A 90-year-old Medal of Honor recipient can keep his 21-foot flagpole in his front yard after a homeowner’s association dropped its request to remove it, a spokesman for Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner said Tuesday.

    The Sussex Square homeowners’ association likewise has agreed to drop threats to take legal action against retired Army Col. Van T. Barfoot, Warner spokesman Kevin Hall said.

    The association had threatened to take Barfoot to court if he failed to remove the pole from his suburban Richmond home by Friday. It had said the pole violated the neighborhood’s aesthetic guidelines.

    Neither Barfoot’s daughter, Margaret Nicholls, nor homeowners’ president Glenn Wilson immediately returned telephone messages.

    Dropping the issue effectively ends a request that White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on Monday called “silly.”

    Warner and Sen. Jim Webb, both Virginia Democrats, had rallied behind Barfoot, a World War II veteran.

    In a letter last week, Webb urged the association to “consider the exceptional nature of Col. Barfoot’s service when considering his pride and determination in honoring our flag.”

    Barfoot’s fight also has lit up veterans bulletin boards and blog sites supporting him.

    Barfoot won the Medal of Honor for actions while his platoon was under German assault near Carano, Italy, in May 1944. He was credited with standing up to three German tanks with a bazooka and stopping their advance.

    He also won the Purple Heart and other decorations, and served in Korea and Vietnam before retiring from the service in 1974.

    The Obama Song.

    “Fool On The Hill ” by The Beatles

    Day after day,
    Alone on a hill,
    The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
    But nobody wants to know him,
    They can see that he’s just a fool,
    And he never gives an answer,

    But the fool on the hill,
    Sees the sun going down,
    And the eyes in his head,
    See the world spinning ’round.

    Well on the way,
    Head in a cloud,
    The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
    But nobody ever hear him,
    or the sound he appears to make,
    and he never seems to notice,

    But the fool on the hill,
    Sees the sun going down,
    And the eyes in his head,
    See the world spinning ’round.

    And nobody seems to like him,
    they can tell what he wants to do,
    and he never shows his feelings,

    But the fool on the hill,
    Sees the sun going down,
    And the eyes in his head,
    See the world spinning ’round.

    Ooh, ooh,
    Round and round and round.

    And he never listens to them,
    He knows that they’re the fools
    They don’t like him,

    The fool on the hill
    Sees the sun going down,
    And the eyes in his head,
    See the world spinning ’round.

    Round and round and round
