    A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama's competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies.
    In just one month, the president's job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%.
    In just one month, disapproval of Obama's foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points to a record high of 58%. With only 36% approving, that ties this poll's record low in this category.
    In the run up to his re-election, when the president was triumphantly declaring the Iraq issue settled and Al Qaeda decimated, foreign policy was one of the president's strengths. At the time, the president's approval ratings on this front hovered at or near 50%.
    Now that both of those boasts have been proven a lie; the infamous Russian "reset" has resulted in Putin seizing Crimea, and Obama's infamous "red line" resulted in the use of chemical weapons against civilians becoming acceptable again as a full-blown human rights disaster unfurls in Syria, the Emperor is buck naked.
    On the question of the president's handling of Iraq, Obama's standing has flipped entirely. Back in October of 2011, the last time the Times asked about Iraq, Obama stood at a healthy 60% approval, 30% disapprove.

    When Obama lied, people died.

    Anyone socially aware during the '90's will get that reference.

    It is apparently the deliberate effort of the liberal media to ignore Benghazi, the VA, the IRS, Fast & Furious, etc., etc., etc., isn't working. The people are finding out without them.
