Recent public opinion polls reveal a steep drop in public support for the Obama administration.
Yesterday's Gallup poll shows Obama with a 51-42 approval rating. This is down from a 50-44 approval rating from a month ago.
Yesterday's Reason-Rupe poll similarly shows Obama with a 50-43 approval rating, down from 51-43 from a month ago.
And today's CNN poll shows Obama with a 53-45 approval rating, down from 52-43 from a month ago.
"The polls indicate that the Obama administration is reeling from Benghazi, IRS, and AP scandals," stated Sen. Steve King (R-Iowa). "If anyone has any doubts about Congress grinding all legislative matters to a halt in order to stage these costly trials, the polls show beyond a shadow of doubt that Congress has been vindicated."
King's Republican colleague in the Senate, Ted Cruz from Texas, stated in a rare moment of candor that he thinks Obama's precipitous drop in public opinion polls may make him more easily impeachable down the road. "As the polls indicate," stated Cruz, "Obama may be road kill."
Republicans are now preparing for another round of hearings, and several high-placed officials in the party are saying they are looking forward to hearing Hillary Clinton's response to the Boston Marathon bomber's note of affection that he scrawled in the boat in which he was captured: "I [heart] Hillary."
"The question of whether Clinton was implicated with the two brothers has not yet come up," stated Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). "It only stands to reason, however, that we investigate Ms. Clinton's travel records in order to discern where she was when the older brother was in Russia."
