Why is Bill Clinton so much more popular than Barack Obama?

How embarrassing is this: you’re the president of the United States. But a former president, who was impeached by Congress, is more popular than you are.

Here’s a fun fact from the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll: Bill Clinton is the most popular political figure in the country. The former president, who never won an outright majority of the popular vote and was impeached by Congress, enjoys a 55–23 favorable/unfavorable rating. Clinton left office with an approval rating of 68 percent according to the CBS poll at the time, so his continuing popularity is not surprising. Source

Why is this happening at a time when we should still be celebrating the first biracial man ever elected president?

The answer is clear: American voters have lost touch with the Machiavellian, socialist president they put in office.

At some point Obama must have been clued in by his advisors that his narcissistic ways were causing him to lose his liberal base. But like most narcissists, Obama refused to listen. It took former president George Bush six years to lose the support of his base. Obama has managed to accomplish this feat in only two short years.

The same enthusiastic supporters (blacks and whites) who carried Obama to that historic win in 2008, are now abandoning him in droves. Likewise, Obama’s top advisors are systematically abandoning ship.

Obama tried to fire up his dwindling Democratic base at a rally at the University of Wisconsin on Tuesday (Sept. 28).

“They’re betting on your apathy,” Obama said to the crowd of mostly high school and college students. “Madison, you’ve got to prove them wrong.”

    Clinton was more popular because it was before the war.. before Americans lost so much – like homes, jobs, loved ones.. the economy was much better. people were more happier about life period!

    Obama’s trying.. he had a tough start, becuase he was elected when a massive war was/ is going on! People expected “change” that was way beyond his reach :shrug:

    Sandra Mae,

    It becomes increasingly harder to dismiss your Barack Obama rants as anything other than a “crabs in a barrel” mentality when, as many times as I’ve waited for a legitimate justification regarding your continued negative propaganda as it relates to Barack Obama, I’ve yet to read anything that leads me believe otherwise.

    You’ve yet to say, “I don’t like his politics. I don’t like that he didn’t vote for (insert any policy). He’s not strong enough in terms of gay rights. He’s ineffective as a leader… blah blah blah”

    All you ever say is something negative without justification.

    Is THAT why people like Bill… or was it because he left us with a $350 Billion dollar SURPLUS when he walked out of the office? There WAS no deficit when Bill Clinton left office, so I believe that’s why people loved him so.

    The people who didn’t like him, didn’t care about the country, they cared about their PARTY, or they were concerned about his lack of “moral” fibre – personally, I didn’t give a damn, I was more concerned with being able to pay my bills. If Hillary didn’t care, why should I?

    Why is Clinton more popular then Obama? simple…Clinton has showed he was Human…and is the most RELATEABLE(sp?). Did anyone mention he got his d.ck sucked in the oval office? that pretty unfiar to compare anyone to clinton on that fact alone. I mean who wouldn’t of done that…when you move into a new house..first thing you do is christen all the rooms of the house right..(or is that just me hehe). But a guess thats why i’m not president. if i were prez…*phases out into fuzzy imaginationland*

    Mr. President: Come on girl(secretary) we got some work to do…theres alot of room in the house. I told the Secret Service to take a lunch break. lets have a little fun..

    *1-hour and 3 messed up curtains laters*

    Stuck up Liberal: Ah. Mr. President did you just have sexual relations in the White House.

    Mr. President: Ah. Yeah…

    Stuck up Liberal: That is so disrespectful to our nation’s capital.

    Mr. President: Uh…no..whats disrespectful is you not minding you own muthaf*.kin business..

    Stuck up Liberal: Excuse me..

    Mr. President: I didn’t stutter…What I do in MY muthaf*.kin house is my muthaf*.ckin business.

    Stuck up Liberal: But your wife..

    Mr. President: Not that its any of your business but my wife is perfectly ok…Since we aint f*.kin no more..she allows me to do me and in return she get to be First Lady…seems like a pretty straight up deal to me..not that any of this is your business..SECURTIY!

    @ Ms. Sandra. The former President is probably more popular than the current President because the latter has to deal with two wars, a shattered economy, and a mid term election. Bill Clinton is no longer in politics (as far as running for office) and has the privilege of having all of his accomplishments behind him… where as the current President has to worry about being re-elected and staying electable. Plus this is sophomoric and really does not matter as they are both from the same party! :coffee:

    Really? That’s interesting & sad all jumbalaya’d up together.

    I’d really be interested in hearing your justification for NOT knowing a single black man who’s a college graduate, doesn’t get loud, is married to a college graduate, seems to be a great dad and is generally a “liked” person (politics aside).

    I agree, that either speaks to black men as a whole, or where you were and where you choose to CONTINUE to socialize yourself.

    When I was coming up, my mother was the state secretary for the N.A.A.C.P. and I grew up around everybody from Jesse Jackson to Benjamin Hooks. I’ll never forget my mom CONSTANTLY reiterating, “You’re going to be around some people WITH something and people who are trying to GET something. That way, when you’re around your cousins, uncles, etc. you won’t JUST get the ghetto $hit, you’re going to be around doctors and lawyers and teachers and business owners… that way, if you decide to grow up and be a zero, it won’t be because you weren’t exposed to all sides of life, it will be because that’s the life you chose – at which point, don’t call me talking about put $hit on your books… in fact, don’t call me.”

    I love my mama for that.
