I have been reading all the "I hate Obama" posts; and "Obama is losing support" threads that the extremist right wingers love so much. To read them, you'd think that everyone on the planet hates Obama. Yet, reality, is that on October 15, 2008, 87% of the country thought we were going in the wrong direcction. Only a miniscule 8.9% thought we were headed in the right direction. However, as of June 10, 2009, the people who think that the country is going in the right directin EXACTLY equals the percentage who think we're going in the wrong direction at 45.8% each. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/direction_of_country-902.html So where do you whiners get that government ISN'T listening... apparently it is... because halving the number of folk who think we're wrongminded -- in only five short months -- says that Obama is doing pretty much what he was elected to do.
