Republicans Mad That Obama Mentioned Ferguson in U.N. Speech

"I was stunned," said former Vice President Dick Cheney, the erstwhile Obama critic, on Fox News.


Republicans don't want President Obama airing America's dirty laundry on the world stage.

The president's mention of the summertime racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, during a speech at the United Nations on Wednesday drew criticism from conservatives, who charged that Obama was resuming the "apology tour" that they saw during his first months in office.

Obama's reference to Ferguson came toward the end of his 35-minute speech, after he had chastised several other countries riven by war and condemned the Islamic State's "network of death" in unusually blunt terms.

The U.S., he was acknowledging, isn't perfect either.

Liberal base sours on Obama


President Obama's poll numbers are plummeting in deep-blue states, such as New York and California, with core liberal supporters who have stuck with him through thick and thin beginning to sour on his leadership.

Obama’s decisions to punt on immigration reform, defend government surveillance and attack fighters in the Middle East have all alienated parts of the coalition that elected him to the White House twice.

The growing dissatisfaction on the left could limit Obama's ability to help Democrats in the midterm elections and could threaten his political legacy if — as happened with George W. Bush — his party begins to abandon him.

The slipping support for Obama is most evident in a pair of recent surveys of Democratic strongholds. Just 39 percent of registered New York voters surveyed in a Marist College poll said Obama is doing an "excellent" or "good" job, down six points from June and the lowest level in the state since the beginning of his presidency.
