Team Obama & Company have been going all out hammer-down with the “Republican war on women” demagoguery. But that’s an invented controversy that won’t stick in the long term, and it looks like it isn’t even resonating in the short term:

President Obama’s approval rating has hit the lowest level ever in CBS News polling, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times survey. The drop may be partially attributable to rising gas prices.

Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, according to the poll, conducted from March 7 to 11. Another 47 percent disapprove of his performance, up from 41 percent last month.

Mr. Obama’s approval rating was 50 percent last month.

Watch for a revised and broadened strategy from the Dems: Insurance companies must pay for a woman’s gasoline provided she’s driving to pick up her free contraceptives.

    "Turns Out Women Buy Gas Too"

    Moreso. By and large this has been described as "a MALE Recession". With Construction, finance, insurance, real estate, development, automotive and even aviation among the hardest hit sectors.

    Unemployed dads doing online job searches don't go thru a lot of gas. MOM is the one topping off at the station. Personally, I work at home or for the Guard and the only gas price updates I get ARE from Mrs. Will.

    Bless YOUR heart and good for her ! My ex would come home when we had only one car with the gas needle near E and some excuse about not having money or some scary looking guys hanging out near the gas pumps ….. RIGHT !

    Yes, women DO buy gas …. and a fascinatingly large number of them put that gas in evil SUVs ! Aaaaah ha ha ha haaaaaa !

    We can debate the degree to which a McCain Administration would have encountered similar economic challenges had he won. I for one believe bailouts would have continued and 'some' form of Porkulus would have taken place.

    Unemployment benefits -would- have been extended! But without question, the whole issue of sky high energy prices wouldn't have materialized. That's Obama's baby and Obama's ALONE.

    Yeah… I'm not so sure it's JUST gas prices…

    Women are not stupid unless they are Obamabots.

    That is because more and more people are realizing that when the government promises to give you something for free it ends up costing you at least twice as much as you would pay if you went out and bought it yourself.

    You got that right. I drive a little Nissan Versa as my commuter car, but the wife drives a Ford F-150 Super Cab to haul the boys around from place to place.

    "Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president"

    Of course if this had been Bush the LSM would be asking why so many people still support the President.

    Ouch. So he's now eating into his support from the 47% of Americans that don't pay any Federal Income tax. Moochers waking up?

  11. Truesoldier__ on March 13th, 2012 12:38 pm

    Not really, just dissapointed Obama hasn't put gas in their cars……yet.

  12. Marshall_Will on March 13th, 2012 1:20 pm

    That's just the point guys. In their Silent Coup (TM ) attempt to Euro-ize the U.S they neglected to calculate that in America, even 'poor people' fully anticipate being able to pursue the most basic RIGHT of all… Americans:

    CRUISING..!

    Without it, life in America is basically worthless. Sans wheels, everything from scoring weed to making booty calls become, wait for it… too much an effort!

    Rented the 4-door model several times from Salem, OR to Klamath Falls and had a BLAST! Even the Enterprise version had all the features our Jag does at [twice] the gas mileage!

    Asked Mrs. Will if she was up for a side trip to an out of the way favorite restaurant of ours and she just laughed… "Sure! ( I think we can 'swing' THAT! )" Those lil' guys are a gas!

    TS, we'll have to make a PNW road trip and take the girls some place where they can hit the shops and I'll pick up the tab for pitchers!

    As I was reminded Friday, "If you think it`s expensive now, wait till it`s FREE !"

    Once again, the WH connivers appear to have overplayed their hand with their "war on women" rhetoric and their insistence that the GOP is out to eliminate contraceptive services for women after they get through throwing granny off a cliff. They think that these are viable, even brilliant campaign strategies because, you know, those women are so dumb they will buy it.

    You would have thought that they would have learned something about women after having to deal with Sarah for 3 years, but their ranks appear to be dominated by really, really slow learners, who appear to have no clue about what is really important to women.

    The ladies are not buying it, and the polls reflect their common sense assessment of the dem's obviously desperate strategy. After all, they can't run on any real accomplishments, so they think they'll win with hysterical scare-mongering:

    Yeah. Women are scared, scared that Lil barry will get a 2nd term. That scares the men, too.

  16. Truesoldier__ on March 13th, 2012 7:02 pm

    Now that sounds like a plan!

  17. backwoodsconsr on March 13th, 2012 8:11 pm

    The Dumbocrats still think Sarah's an idiot and Obama's a genius.

  18. SignPainterGuy on March 13th, 2012 11:42 pm

    Opposite, bizarro world ! Obama`s only genius is in destroying America !

  19. backwoodsconsr on March 14th, 2012 12:05 am

    And fooling a lot of people into believing that the opposition to him is based on his skin color and not his policies.

  20. SignPainterGuy on March 14th, 2012 12:43 am

    Gotta be one of the most repeated lies / BS / non sequiturs going ! Not even proof or logical responses work to quell the nonsense !

    "If I`m against Obama because I`m a racist, then why was Cain my candidate until he folded his tent ?" Nothing but glazed-over eyes !

    "Do lying marxist muslims come only in black ?" Whoa, put that gun away !

  21. ChapBix on March 15th, 2012 2:07 am

    By that logic, every trip will be to buy contraceptives so they can dun the insurance company for gasoline reimbursement.
