"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Obama Pollster to Press: Stop Covering Polls!


Any bets on whether Joel Benenson has this poster hanging on his wall at home?

Oh, boy...

From The Daily Caller article by Alex Pappas:

After a year of seeing President Obama's approval ratings plummet, the president’s pollster is offering a strikingly candid and pessimistic New Year’s resolution. 
Reporters should go the next “year without reporting any public polling data,” Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, said.  
[...]  
Benenson explained that he thinks the polling often reported by news organizations lacks the proper context. 
Asked his New Year’s resolution: “Here’s one — with a variation, if mine is too extreme: Go one year without reporting any public polling data.” 
“Rationale: Most public polling continues to be reported on strictly from a topline, horserace-type perspective that does nothing, or at best very little, to illuminate the news of the day.”
News like the American people unabashed love of ObamaCare so generously bestowed upon us by our Dear Leader?

According to Wall Street Journal/NBC news polling, Obama’s job approval fell from 52 percent at the start of the year to 43 percent today.

Well, that's certainly a novel way to buttress up your flailing leader... just don't say how unpopular his problems and policies are.

Hmm... It seems familiar, though. Where have I heard this before?



Oh, right...
