Obama's Sinking Popularity - by Stephen Lendman
Except for bankers, war profiteers, other corporate favorites, and America's super-rich, it's hard imagining why anyone supports a president backing policies harming so many at home and abroad.
The good news perhaps is that growing numbers are awakening, the latest June 7 - 9 Zogby International poll showing recent lows in Obama's popularity:
-- 56% disapprove of his job as president; 43% approve;
-- 39% say he deserves reelection; 52% want change;
-- congressional approval also dropped to 17%, a testimony to mass public disdain; and
-- given America's direction, waging multiple imperial wars at the expense of vital homeland needs, expect an angrier public reaction ahead as pain levels rise.
Human need always trumps other concerns, especially when vast national resources aren't used to relieve it, many millions left on their own sink or swim when they most need help. War profiteering and other corporate priorities come first.
