    Barack Obama had enjoyed the longest Gallup winning streak of his presidency in 2011, buoyed in part by a lame-duck compromise on taxes and an impressive speech in Tucson. His approval ratings showed growth or held steady for seven weeks, three longer than any other period since taking office in January 2009. Now, however, with an incoherent response to unrest sweeping the Arab world and an abdication of leadership on the budget, his approval rating in Gallup polling have hit its lowest mark since mid-December:

    Are you purposefully stupid? He did not lie about anything. He is talking about Gallup's numbers and strictly Gallup's. Show where he lied about Gallup's numbers or admit that you're an intentional idiot. I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt on this one.
