    But this can't be good for Obama:

    How low will he go? Obama approval hits yet another bottom and 54% now say, 'No second term' | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times

    Probably irrelevant. We'll see what the next two years brings.
    But i have faith that Obama will do exactly the wrong thing.

    It might be a long time until 2012 but 2010 elections are just a few short days away. The revolution begins...

    CNN, MSNBC and Faux News can hardly wait. THEY may start the 2012 campaign as early as January 2011. Who wants to bet?

    Of course Dubya was polling higher at this point. It was what? A month after 9/11? He had something like a 93% approval rating in the month of September after 9/11.

    :lol: I didn't know changing from (D) to (R) is being considered a revolution again. I saw this flick on TCM, the one from '94. The original was never that good, never mind the quasi remake/sequel that's going on now.
