    Pew Polling firm has found an interesting change in the way President Obama is being described, with the use of words like "incompetent" and "liar" on the rise.

    The latest Pew poll finds that one-word impressions of Obama are turning negative more often than they have in the past. Until now, Pew says, these wholly negative one-word impressions were "rare."

    The survey finds that the one-word impressions people have of Obama have changed a great deal throughout his presidency. Terms like incompetent and liar now are among the most frequently used words to describe Obama. In April 2009, when his job approval was at 63%, these words were rare.

    Pew also found that the word "socialist" is used in nearly the same proportion as it has been used since he first took office, showing that the President has not succeeded in knocking down the perception that he is a socialist.

    The President is also viewed negatively on civil liberties.

    "Yet Obama receives some of his worst marks for how he is handling privacy and civil liberties," Pew reports. "Just 42% approve while 51% disapprove."

    What else can you call an incompetent and a liar but "incompetent" and "liar"?

    Agreed. However, I would add that Obama is a very competent liar!

    "Competent liar" would imply people believe him. Very few but his biggest Kool-Aid drinking supporters think he isn't.

    Almost 66 million people voted for him, so he's fooling more than just the Kool-Aid drinkers.

    Sixty-six million people represented barely 50% of the electorate -- 50.7% to be exact. His approval rating right now is 44%, and only a third of the registered voters thinking he's being entirely truthful regarding the IRS, NSA, and the other multiple scandals coming to roost at the White House. In other words, if the election were held again today, he would lose. I'd say it's only the Kool-Aid drinkers hanging on. Of course, there are a lot of them.
