    Two bad weeks for Obama, in words

    Two bad weeks for Obama, in words

    Matthew Knee, former LI contributor and now at TargetPoint Consulting, sent this infographic showing what people are saying on “the internet” about Obama the past two weeks.

    It’s mostly negative sentiment on several of the most talked about issues (spending cuts, guns, drones, defense, taxes) and slightly positive on jobs and the economy. The big surprises for me were the “women” and “education” topics, which both were very talked about and negative.

    The graphic below illustrates the top issues discussed in relation to President Obama over the last two weeks (March 1st-13th), sized by volume and shaded according to average sentiment. This incorporates all mentions from the main (overall) media source, which includes news media, social media (excluding Twitter), and general websites (including the blogosphere).

    The greener the bubble, the more positive the issue; the redder the  bubble, the more negative.

    Obama’s toughest issues were spending cuts, drones, guns, and assorted foreign policy concerns. The president’s most positive areas, on the other hand, centered around economic concerns and immigration.

    Does it get worse than being the body double for Satan as depicted by the History Channel in the hit series “The Bible”? Wow, just wow.

    I’m surprised “regulations” are viewed so positively.

    The best news for Obama this year:

    Boehner says he ‘absolutely’ trusts Obama

    Honestly, I think there’s truly something ‘wrong’ with this man. It’s common knowledge that he chronically drinks to excess, and I’m wondering if this – coupled with some kind of character disorder he suffers — compels Boehner to both make a public fool of himself, and compels him surrender his office to an abusive lunatic.

    Boehner doubles down on stupid, and again assumes the lawn jockey position
