    The problem with polls like this is that they don't say anything about what direction the people would LIKE us to be going in.

    There are more than two possible answers to that question, you know.

    And yet the direction Obama chose happened to be the wrong one.

    Next....

    Right okay, so it's not Congress's fault at all, huh? Even though congress's approval rating is over twice as low as Obama's?

    FACT: there has been steady economic growth in the private sector for the past 5 months. This hasn't occurred since April of 2006.

    It scares me that even 1% would think this country is headed in the right direction.

    Yes, but why? I know for a fact that a substantial proportion of the electorate thinks that he is leading us in the wrong direction because he is TOO CONSERVATIVE.

    That's what makes this a strange election. Dissatisfaction with Obama does NOT NECESSARILY benefit the Republicans. There are more than two possible directions in which we can go, and "Not-Obama's-way" is not the same in meaning as "The-Republicans'-way."

    Which coincidentally was about the time the democrats took over. Then when the gop gains enough power to stop them the growth begins again.

    Now stick your head back in the sand.

    FACT: It's been the same in many other countries. Conclusion: It ain't because of Obama. Twit.

    For a fact, huh? Cool. I assume you have some legitimate link to unbiased research to back that up.

    I won't wait for the evidence.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: No actually. The approval ratings have been this low since the 2010 midterm election. Get your facts straight.
