    He is learning what happens when you ignore then ridicule the silent majority.

    We start to speak, we start to get angry, and the poll numbers reflect it.

    He is down into the Under 50% approval range, he might be hiking toward Bush country if he keeps going at this rate.

    as much as I enjoy watching Obama's approval going down, how long did economists say it would take for the stimulus to work?

    They said we need to pass the stimulus immediately because it will take over 2 years just to get the programs set up and the money all out :lol:

    NOW HURRY UP AND WAIT!!!!!!!!!!! :rofl:


    Ok its not funny, the stimulus pissed me off awful, but still. They have spent about 10% of it and its been passed for half a year.

    Half the stimulus money hasn't even been spent yet, so it's amazing that the un-educated masses have made their decision already.

    Is this discussion of poll numbers supposed to be comforting to conservatives? Surely you don't think this proves the merits of your positions on the healthcare debate?

    No way..... He's the Messiah and they don't believe in the cross, so they have nothing to crucify him on.

    Elections are a long, long way away and if there's something they've always had to bank on, it's time and the short memories of the electorate, and the ability to get the sheep back in the pen before the elections.

    His poll numbers won't be a factor, even if horribly bad, when the time comes for the sheep to cast their ballots.

    But it was "urgent" and "targeted" was it not? Just like this Health Scare plan, it's all urgent and stuff, we gotta do it NOW, but lookie here -- it doesn't go into effect anyway, for a full YEAR after it's signed! Where's the urgency?

    The only urgency in these bills was to quickly get them passed into law, before anyone got the chance to read and analyze them. They cannot dazzle with brilliance, so they try to baffle with bullshit, and it even worked a couple of times!
