Obama Says His Policies Are Unpopular Because He Didn’t Advertise Them Enough, But Some Disagree

November 1, 2010 by  

Obama says his policies are unpopular because he didn't advertise them enough, but some disagreePresident Barack Obama said that the widespread criticism surrounding his policies stems from the fact that he didn't spend enough time selling the legislation to the public. However, Republicans, and many others, say it's because the policies themselves are ineffective.

During a campaign stop in Seattle on Oct. 21, the President said that negative advertisements from his Republican opponents, while lacking specifics, are influencing public opinion of his job performance, according to CNN.com. He said that his administration should do a better job reaching out to Americans and clarifying the upsides of each bill.

As part of their campaign to oust Democrats from Congress in November's midterm elections, Republicans have spoken out against Obama's stimulus bills and healthcare legislation, which they say have expanded the Federal deficit without bringing down the unemployment rate.

According to The Huffington Post, a top economist with the Federal Reserve has criticized Obama for "three years of failed policies" in regards to the country's housing crisis. Paul Willen of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston said that Obama's $75 billion program intended to help homeowners avoid foreclosure has been ineffective.

Willen said that the Home Affordable Mortgage Program (HAMP), which forced mortgage companies to lower their borrowers' monthly payments, has done more harm than good because many homeowners now owe more than ever because of new fees and surcharges.

"The idea we can go forward and all we need to do is tweak things a little or change a rule here or there or even change a lot of rules and give some incentive payments — that is not enough," Willen said, quoted by the news provider.

    Some will say you misspeak, Mr. Obama. In fact, you lie, Mr. Obama. You made no effort to “sell” your mindless, America-hating bilge to the American people. Your socialistic, communistic, fascistic and insane garbage was to be rammed down our throats, because your monumental ego demands it.
    Your in-house camp-follower, Pelosi, made a great mistake when she said ‘we need to pass this [healthcare] legislation to see what’s in it.’ In effect, everything you’ve tried to enslave us with was done in the same fashion as your healthcare scam.
    You never ‘hit the ground running,’ Mr. Obama. You went underground and behind our backs. Nothing you’ve tried to crush us with will make America better. We are incensed because we know what you represent.
    You are a disciple of Wilson and FDR. Your role models are Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Alinsky. Not unlike those millions who are in America illegally,
    your presence is a liability. Tuesday is only the beginning of America’s response to your hope and change con artistry. America is organized. Now, REAL hope and change are coming. Enjoy.

          Votists keep voting ans the gov’t presumes more and more power, could there be a connection here?

          Yes, the gov’t run public brainwashing system has been very successful.

          • http://naver sook young

            Well Don, if you don’t like how things are going, voting is a way to change this country’s direction. Brainwashing? The fewer people that vote, the more in the wrong direction we go, anyone can tell you that. If you really think this way, then stay home and don’t vote like an unpatriotic American would do. People like you only hurt this great country and I’m sorry to say that there are too many of you allowed to live here. If you don’t like it, then you can sell your house and move to another country.

Did you see the reports about the national anthem over the week end??? some had totally different music and words and calling it the national anthem and still others had The Star Spangled Banner music and different words!!

      Actually, The Kenyan’s policies have had plenty of advertising.
      We even sent men and women overseas to fight against those same policies in WW2, Korea and Viet Nam.
      Fascism and Communism need no introduction from you Mr. Obama.

  • Doc Sarvis

    I love it; “According to The Huffington Post, a top economist with the Federal Reserve has criticized Obama for “three years of failed policies”. President Obama has been in office for less than two years! Next, he’ll get blamed for 9/11.

    • wwjd

      you might want to go reread what was written, because you misquoted the facts. Here is what was said and a link fir you to fact check it:

      Prevention Efforts: ‘Three Years Of Failed Policies’
      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/the-financial-fix

      “Those tools — government programs that did little to change the fundamental incentives driving mortgage companies, lenders and investors — have been “the roadmap for three years of failed policies,” said Willen, an expert in household finances and home mortgages.”

      “The lenders foreclosed on borrowers because it’s in their financial interest to do it. Modification is an expensive and ineffective medicine,” he added.”

      This is what I am talking about getting facts straight not slandering or misleading others, being held accountable for our actions. Responsibility for what we do.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Slander and misleading information is what most of this site seems to be about.

            Here’s a quote for you Doc about you seperation of church and state issues you seem to have:

            “Religion is of general and public concern and on its proper support depend, in great measure, the peace and good order of government, the safety and happiness of the people. By our form of government, the Christian religion is the established religion; and all sects and denominations of Christians are place upon the same equal footing, and are equally entitled to protection in their religious liberty.”

            Samuel Chase
            Chief Justice SCOTUS 1803

            I know that this is not the subject at hand, but to you, unkinetic1, robert smith, etc, this proves you all wrong. This means yes school prayer. No to gays, bisexuals, etc. It also means no arresting Christians for praying at a gay rally. I also voted this morning, how about you? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    It isn’t that the Obama policies weren’t advertised enough, the problem is that they weren’t advertised honestly, like the healthcare bill. No one in their right mind would want several thousand pages of never read regulations dumped on them as a done deed, mandated to be bought and sold by the government.
    Then there is the problem with cap and trade to save us all at great expense from global warming and our carbon footprints that has never been proven to even exists.
    The only thing transparent about any Obama policies is that they ae deliberately opaque at best. We the people are being played for fools, dolts who are unable to comprehend what is good for us, or for our country.
    We do not need any more lectures, or scolding for our lack of realizing how great and smart our president is, as he goes about his way to fundamentally transform our country into a European model, suitable for the inclusion in a global union, totally dependent on the government for our existence.
    We the people prefer to think and do for ourselves as free people always have. We have no intenton of giving up what America stands for and shall continue to stand for as long as we remain united in our belief in our Contitution, and The Declaration of Independance in which America promises to provide for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
    Obama can advertise from now until doomsday and he will never be able to better anything that we don’t already have.

    • Teresa

      Very well said! You do not come in command as the President and intentionally set to change the Constitution, you set to enforce it. You do not come in and intentionally set to divide the states, you set to bond and enpower us as a whole! You do not come in to CONTROL us you come in to LEAD us!

  • timmym

    What does Obama mean he didn’t get his message out clear enough to the American people ? Obama has made his message crystal clear! Cap and Trade, Obama care done behind closed doors with only CERTAIN democrats aloud to participate then using the nuclear option to make it into law against the will of the American people, a health care law that will surely bankrupt the country, an 814 billion dollar stimulus package that evaporated into thin air , trying to ruin our long standing military by allowing openly gay people to serve in our armed forces, trying to close down the most premiere site in the world (Guantanamo Bay) to hold our foreign prisoners, a 10% unemployment rate that in reality is twice that, 5 trillion dollars in debt added to our already insurmountable pile of debt since Pelosi was given the gavel etc. etc. etc. so when Obama says he isn’t getting out his message, I say to who the ignorant ?

    • Doug Rodrigues

      Obama’s idea of hammering his Socialist ideas that you don’t want into your head is to get a bigger hammer if you resist. Stalinistic, isn’t it?

    • timmym

      one other message Obama has sent to the American people is his full support to grant amnesty to some 12-20 million illegal aliens in this country and then use these now legal aliens to extend Obama’s socialist agenda!.

      • s c

        Timmym, Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution [that piece of paper that Obummer HATES] says each state deserves to be protected from an INVASION. When the government REFUSES to honor its constitutional duties, then it’s up to the individual states to tell Uncle Scam to @#** off, and the job will get done IN SPITE OF the old, useless fart. That situation sounds more than just familiar RIGHT NOW, doesn’t it?

        • timmym

          Here’s one for you s c and any others who wish to participate in this question, what would the people of our country do If Obummer where to sign an executive order giving all illegal aliens citizenship THEN how much power does a state(s) have ?. This NIGHTMARE could happen but an executive order is not limited to immigration Obummer could use it to grant openly gay homosexuals to serve in the military OR ANYTHING ELSE. The question is WOULD Obummer sign an executive order knowing full well the vast majority of the American people out right reject Obummers idea of amnesty, using words like “it was the decent thing to do” or “it was the right thing to do” or “it was the honest thing to do” or any other feely goody words to justify his incompetence ? Then what ?

  • AZ Jack

    Well, he’s right about one thing. His policies weren’t advertised. Everything was done in secret behind closed doors but this wasn’t the reason his policies are unpopular. It is because his policies aren’t worth crap – they are all policies which create a big, totalitarian government. What a jackass.

  • FlaJim

    Actually, the boy in the White House has very adequately advertised his message with dozens and dozens of his turgid speeches. His problem is that the more Americans who hear it, the more they oppose it. Hence the TEA Party movement and his plummeting polls.

    He really did believe, coming in, that we were a bunch of suckers who’d fall for some slick talk and now that we haven’t, he’s at a loss.

    • Doc Sarvis

      All of government is taking a dive in the polls. That is a sign of how extensive the problems were/are. It seems most folks on this site assume President Obama could just flip a switch and everything would be okay. I think the realistic folks in the U.S. understand that we need a major correction to the errors that have built up over time and this will not happen overnight.

        I don’t expect the kenyan to “flip a switch“.

This low life and his czars have got ot go…

        Until this well-known fact, you managed to accuse, insinuate and take hit and run potshots at everyone without even attempting to engage in a useful discourse. Saul Alinsky would be proud of you.

      • Commonsense

        Doc, I think you misunderstand me, at least. I’m saying, not only Obama, but about 98 percent of the bueracracy around us today and off and on for the last 90 years is crap.A president, like Obama, who tries to get his personal agendas passed without the american peoples ascent isn’t a president, he then becomes a dictator. Bush was sneeky and wanted to make us safe with the patriot act(BIG FLIPPING MESS) clinton deregulated the last half of the safety regs put in from our last depression so he and his real estate buddies could skin a cat, he also drove the last coffin nails in on our Ag with the finishing touches on NAFTA. Gore can’t sell global warming with out the goverment shoving down our throats. He tried to scare us with his Inconvenient Folley, so if you don’t come willingly, we’ll force you to conform. Do you see a picture developing here? Big Government: BAD. Constitution: GOOD. If you didn’t catch all the other stuff, at least you can agree on the last two comments, yes?

  • The Shrimper

    Obama’s statement is totally predictable. What should we expect from an arrogant, narcissistic elitist. The reason for the criticism of his policies is the very fact that people have been beaten over the head with them by the lapdog media and they see the fraud, deceit, and anti-American tone.

    Obama did’nt get his message out clearly when he did not place his hand over his heart during the national anthem at one of his campaign rallies..or when he flubbed the swearing in oath on inaugeration day..or when he substitutes the presidential seal or the flag for his “brand”logo which looks like a ripoff of the pepsi logo.He did not get his message across when he took over the auto industry,or when he bowed to some foreign king..he did not get his message across when he hijacked the nations health care system,or when he got involved in a police incident and turned it into something more than it was..he did’nt get his message across when he stated that the USA is not a Christian nation,he did not get his message across when he stated that he would fix the”mistake”should any of his own daughters get accidentally knocked up.He surely was misunderstood on his religious beliefs and certainly mistaken where he was born..don’t get ol barry wrong just because he can’t find any of his college papers showing he attended certain schools and who funded his schooling.Oh and let’s not forget how poor narcissist barack hussein promised to work with both parties equally in order to unite the country and get things done.Clearly barry is misunderstood in his hatred for any news media that does’nt worship the groud he walks on..and his blatant disreguard for the Constitution and the needs and wants of the American people.Perhaps we just simply don’t understand him being the great intellectual teleprompting orator that he is.Perhaps we need to better listen and understand him through the language that he speaks which seems so clear to illegal immigrants,gays,commies and atheists.That’s it!He’s not speaking our language.I guess in order to better understand him I’ll go out and buy that new book written by Congress..The Idiots guide for the Presidency.

      Let’s not forget his loving pastor Jeremiah Wright. Remember that Barry didn’t understand the hate that his loving pastor was promoting against America. And the comments Michelle also made.

      No he’s not misunderstood. He’s made himself very clear!

    They are unpopular because they cost far more than we can afford. ANd some are just stupid. They don’t seem to understand that reasoning.

    There is no delusion like self-delusion. President Obama and his administration sold Obamacare over and over. The problem is, the people didn’t but it.

  • RC

    Actually when you hear the same messsage with a Liberal twist, from the same messenger, over and over again, one tends to totally tune them out or turn them off. Blah, blah, me, blah is the message most of us heard… Really is that simple……. Shut up for awhile… RC

  • Mac

    Dr. David said it, but I’ll repeat it: “President Obama and his administration sold Obamacare over and over. The problem is, the people didn’t but it.” Maybe it also helped when Nancy Pelosi blurted out – we won’t know what’s in the bill until it is passed; passing laws without knowing what they mean will have an affect on the law’s popularity.

    The HAMP program hasn’t done much good because the same banks and mortgage companies that got us into this mess are once again trying to reinvent themselves.They can’t use their old bag of tricks (fancy financing,tiered payments,ponzi’s,ect.)to help their previous customers so they are now screwing them in a new way. They were living high on the hog and deserved the beating they got.It’s too bad they had to take everyone else down with them. They are still self righteous,demanding and very protective of their loot.You can’t squeeze a nickel out of them to help the folks they two timed or even help the same economy they demolished. Most businesses are seeking out customers but the banks are hoarding their government checks. That seems to be a more lucrative scheme to them. Obama needs to snap them out of their lethargy or take the money back.

    Message received and understood, now understand this We don’t like your policies. Thinly veiled Marxism, progressive or whatever name you choose to call it soes not sell well overall, except in states such as California where if the polls are to be believed the people will elect Gov. Moonbeam yet again. I think they must already be smoking that weed or worse. Dont look to the rest of the States for your failed economy / budget. Moonbeam will provide especially if your illegial.And they wonder why their state is broke. Are you kidding me.

  • http://none Mike

    I think he articulated his ideas well. And we the people didnt like them much. Maby though we should encourage him to keep going right up to 2012. That way he may educate the people even more to the fact that he and alot of his people in the adminastration are socialist. Ever notice here lately when he goes on one of his petulant rants where I think he expresses his ideas well that his poll numbers seem to drop at a faster rate? You can call people idiots only so often untill they start to resent being called that and start calling him on the carpet for it. So yes by all means lets let him keep talking and digging his hole in the sand untill it falls in on him. Mike L.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy 131

    His policies were proven to be unpopular before they were even voted on, in all the Town Hall Meetings and national polls, but thinking he knows whats better for us than we do, pushed them down our throats anyway. How can anyone be for a law that the other party wasn’t even allowed behind the closed doors to participate in and was required to vote on before anyone was allowed to read it, despite Obama’s campaign promises of transparency and nonpartisanship in government. Doesn’t that make him a liar twice, not including in the same law, the campaign and Congressional address, promises of non-goverment financing of abortions, which one Congressman was forced to apologize to Obama for telling the truth about him. How would advertising change all that, unless its just more lies, and someone then believes him?

    Obama Care contained just enough believability to win the day but while I personally believe universal care is essential, based on the success of France, who provides better care to all its people for less than $4000 annually and is ranked far above the US in quality of care and the longivity of their people as provided by the World Health Organization, Obama Care didn’t address the massive costs we bare in the US. All aspects of the medical industry in the US rip us off and I believe makes the cost of care the highest in the world while at the same time organizations like the World Health Organization ranks us poorly when juxtaposed to the rest of the western world. The American people are the cash cow for the medical industry. We’re mostly captive with few alternatives save traveling to places like South East Asia or even Cuba for quality care at a fraction of the cost at home. Obama Care missed the target and the product will probably break the bank.

      hundabuxt,
      when the world health organization is part of the European union, I guess they would talk down the US. but take england, universal coverage and it SUCKS! Germany, universal coverage and it SUCKS! Italy, universal coverage and it SUCKS!!! See a little pattern here??? I have a friend in France that worked here for a couple of years and she says she hates their coverage!! she says travelers get better coverage than the residents do! Says her whole family hates it!! Perhaps you should quit reading biased reports and listen to a few unbiased people that use it!!!

  • http://yahoo.com Mike nelson

    hundaboxt: Why do the EU people who can afford to fly here for health care. I’m sure that they just don’t want to waste their doctor’s time or their countries money. If you like the French, please move,your BO is probably about as bad as any Europeans. Bad teeth-bad water-bad health-bad BO-bad schools and a bad future. Please move your bad azz there.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    Nonsense!! BHO doesn’t need to sell his policies, except maybe to drones, leeches, losers and ignorant liberal morons. The majority of us know that his policies have been a disaster!! And he’s governed against our will, such as with government run health care, which has proven to be a disaster in Europe and Canada. He blames Bush for the bad economy which he inherited. But BHO turned that bad economy into a disaster – now the worst recession since the great depression. Likewise, BHO and Pelosi added more to our national debt in 21 months than all presidents from George Washington to Ronald Reagan did in 200 years!! And BHO lies about what he’s done, such as saying that he and his democraps are getting us out of the mess!! LOL!!

  • John Carey

    Obama’s policies are not popular because they are terrible. He has ruined us financially, is soft on terrorists that attack the U.S. and does not have America’s best interest at heart. He is self-centered and a narcists.

    • 45caliber

      I agree.

  • Olga Mendis

    I am sorry to read all this News. I did not think that there were so many agianst him. I really thought he will be able to continue as President for a longer period

    • joe_k

      Olga,

      Lets hope you are wrong. :)

      Then again, two things I have learned about American politics in the last 40 years:

      1. Never underestimate the Democrat party’s ability to twist the truth, re-write history, assassinate decent character, organize whiners, subvert the will of the majority of Americans, avoid constitutional restraints or steal elections through voter fraud and foreign campaign financing. I have learned that the democrats/liberals alias ‘progressives’ are very good team players when it comes to all these things. (or is it just that they are ‘herd animals’ sticking together for the protection of themselves individually?)

      2. Never underestimate the Republican party’s ability to drop, fumble, loose, misplace or destroy the ball when they could have won just by standing up and keeping both eyes open. This is because the only time you can get all the Republicans together at once is at a memorial service for a true statesman/conservative. (or is it because so many liberals/democrats are hiding in their ranks. You know, all those democrats that switched party affiliation to distance themselves from Bill Clinton. Sort of ‘Trojan Horse” inside the Republican party?)

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Olga,
      In 2012, stick im’ with a fork cause he’s done!!!! The vote will tell the whole story. Like I said on the other thread, bye, bye un-American pie!!!

  • joe_k

    Opening statement of this article:

    President Barack Obama said that the widespread criticism surrounding his policies stems from the fact that he didn’t spend enough time selling the legislation to the public.

    Here is the truth about that: Obama is disappointed that the millions of dollars invested in propaganda did not work.

    Here is the reason why: To many Americans remember Communism, Socialism, and Freedom.

    Remember Onumnutt’s showed his colors, when he was in the Senate. His own words claimed he was a marxist muslim waste. The National Marxist Communist Democrat Party just finally got a chance to really speed shift their agenda into hyper drive. The idea of a conservative or a common sense democrat is just b–l s–t pipe dream. It is like saying a pedohile worshipping muslim, is compassionite, understanding, and accepts other religions, only when your head is seperated from your spine. NMCDP has never understood government control never works, government owning any private businesses will not work, it was tried in Germany, Russia, Italy,N Korea, and any middle east pus pocket country. But we all forget Onumnutts is a muslim marxist wanna be dictator with his private band of radical smuck party lap dogs, who do nothing but play fetch, bark, and lick themselves,all the while waiting a Soros command.

    Doc, ” I believe slander and misinformation is what most of this site seems to be about.” (opinion)
    “Slander and misinformation is what most of this site seems to be about.” (lie) The wording. You state it like a fact or an accusation. You have listened to the lie so long that it has become the truth to “you”. You don’t recognize the truth from this site when you read it.

  • Rick

    I notice that Obama did not advertise his post election trip that is
    going to cost the American taxpayers one billion dollars for a five
    day vacation for him and 3,000 of his closest myrmidons. This guy
    thinks he has an unlimited credit card for his personal gratification.
    He would have a problem selling me a pound of gold for $100.
