    There's something very important that you fail to understand about reading polls.

    A great number (and who knows exactly how great) of those 'Disapproving' do so for very different reasons than you. I would vote 'Disapprove,' but I disapprove because he acts too much like a Republican and folds under pressure.

    Does that mean I'm gonna go vote for an actual Republican next year? Hardly. The same logic has been used by your side re HCR. Half of respondants who 'Disapprove' did so because the bill didn't do enough. You use that as evidence that they prefer no bill at all, and it couldn't be farther from the truth.

    But please, by all means, I encourage the RNC to treat this as if it will be a walk in the park. :thup:

    That's mentally retarded (so at least you're in character).

    The 2009 budget was 3.5 trillion. Bush's last 2 budgets alone totaled 6.7 trillion.

    In ancient times, a leader who failed as greatly as Obama has was simply erased from the history of his people. Craftsmen were engaged by his successors in power to chisel his name off of all the temples, (stone) archives, and monuments. The statues that had been erected at the outset of his reign, which had depicted him as a wonderworking colossus, were toppled, and their facial features mutilated to obliterate him from the record and memory.

    Some may say that I am being overly optimistic in saying we have reached that nadir of Obama power already, over a year from the next election, but this week establishes in my mind that my assessment is -- barring some great, unforeseen event or sudden, never before seen, infusion of pragmatism and sense on his part -- solid.

    Two major political events marked this week: The incredible victory in Wisconsin of the Republican Party and the Eleventh Circuit decision striking down the individual mandate of ObamaCare as unconstitutional.

    In my times, they put kids like you in what was called 'Special Class'.

    I wouldn't call losing 3 out of 7 Republican seats in Wisconson an 'incredible victory'. It may not have been everything that the Dems were hoping for, but it does indicate a vital change in the political landscape - in favor of the Dems.

    Whether Obama wins or loses the next election is entirely a matter of if he energizes the liberal base or not. What the Repugs do doesn't matter.
