    Obama is becoming increasingly damaging to the Democratic party... except to the freaks on the left fringe who still think he is the Messiah.

    At what point do more reasonable people begin to see him as a liability? What has to happen for even Dems to want him and his policies out of the Oval Office?

    I think many are willing to continue giving him a chance until it's officially time to run for re-election. Then they will evaluate his first term and measure him against his opponent. It may end up that some will go back to not voting. That would be unfortunate.

    Let me please state that I dont' want this to turn into a flame war.

    I honestly want to hear peoples opinions. His approval numbers have plummeted. People siding with Obama are losing elections and primaries. Would a massive GOP win in November make Dems very uncomfortable with Obama?

    His approval numbers are still VERY respectable when compared against ANY previous POTUS at this point in their Presidency. Why is it that only the folks on the right are SO concerned about Rasmussen's poll numbers?

    so far obama has not done much that i would not have expected from an extension of the bush administration...we are still at war....we are still divided....working people are losing ground ...
    the entire gulf coast line has been assaulted and i feel like everyone involved has dragged their feet.
    i expected obama and his think tank to hit the ground running...since they told me for over a year that was just what they were ready to do...and they didnt....

    change and hope..whatever...i see the same old same old....and a lot of hopelessness...here is what pisses me off...the coal people...will use this to continue mountain top removal....as much as obama says he is an enviromentalist...he makes james watt look friendly....

    i guess that saying...the secret to happiness is low expectations is true. obama got people's hopes up...for real change...for real reform...and we got...the same old....same old.
