Zogby Report Card: Obama juggles Iraq, Iran alright, but IRS scandal 'stinks'

 By Paul Bedard  | June 21, 2014 | 6:00 am



Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama's slumping poll numbers aren't “devastating,” and warns that the Internal Revenue Service scandal stinks.

"Well we had Bush 41 and 43. Now we have Obama 41 and 43 — except those are his poll numbers. These are not good, and they are slipping. But a warning to folks who simply hate Mr. Obama: these are not devastating numbers. I will watch to see if they continue to slip, or free fall.

“No one can possibly blame the president for the Iraq crisis. He pulled troops out because that is exactly what the majority of Americans demanded. Now he is handling a very tough situation with caution because that is appropriate. There are no easy (or perhaps even good) answers.
   
 
“And he is thinking strategically by possibly engaging Iran. Again, not an easy answer, but perhaps opening a door to a July deal on Iran's nuclear program. Special care is necessary because the U.S. risks alienating good allies in the Gulf.

"The capture of the mastermind of the Benghazi attack shows that the administration is taking the issue very seriously.

“As difficult as Iraq and the Middle East are, turning over IRS emails should be easy. I think this issue stinks more and more.”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
