    Disconnect between Obama's personal ratings and issues. Cognitive dissonance is setting in:

    at this point the american public must begin to pay attention to the issues. get over electing the first black president. get over his birth certificate, it is a done deal, time to move on.

    many of us, expected obama to really do what he said he would..hit the ground running with a vetted staff in place. that has not happened.

    pull out of iraq and afghanistan in what was it 90 days....that has not been done

    legal pot...or at least decrimalize it...nope, seems his short term memory has forgotten that....including not raiding state clinics...but that has been done...

    his selection of hillary for sec of state....i think was a mistake....the democratic party is still having an infight....clintons want control....heavy is the head that wears the crown...

    and everyone get over this he is the messiah or the anti christ...he is nothing but a slick politican ..now let us see if he can hand on for a 2nd term...

    but i agree with what bill mahre said....why the fuck isnt he showing some spine...stand up to these people...dont be so damned nampie pampie

    Public Wary of Deficit, Economic Intervention - WSJ.com

    I really like this part.

    Kind of like how when the president makes an argument over and over again whether it's true or not to push his agendas?

    Or this is this old chestnut
    Now, not wanting to do what the president is pushing is not the same as wanting to do nothing but that's one of those arguments he makes over and over again even though it's not true.

    Polls show a consistant fact, a lot of people like BO, many do NOT like his polices.

    If he continues to be ineffective his personal appeal will also slip.

    Or maybe its due to the fact that people vote, in part, based on personality? This isn't a new phenomenon, why is this so surprising to you?

    Interestingly, I think it's more a function of the constant and persistent whining from the right wing loonies. The people who didn't vote for him were never going to approve anyway....

    and the people on the left are ticked off that he hasn't been ballsy enough on don't ask, don't tell; gitmo; health care and a bunch of other issues. I think it's time for him to stop accommodating the right. How do you like that?

    there's your drop... no bigs. *shrug*

    jillian - Like all politicians Democrats say and do whatever it takes to get elected except Democrats are worse... They change their mind depending on what the public wants. Like was mentioned earlier they don't have a spine to stand for what they believe in... Partially because the American people are still center right leaning... and what Democrats believe in the majority of people don't want... They could legalize pot, pull the troops, let every illegal immigrant in for free, etc... but they know they would also have to deal with the consequences... Obama is finding this out that is why he is afraid to please the far left because he knows he won't get re-elected....

    Just the facts....

    That's straight out of Goebbels' playbook right there... And it's exactly what HE and the entire party in power does...

    Interesting analysis. So it's the opposition that controls the polls? Who'd have thought? :lol: So influential on everyone that voted your way, why isn't it working on you? Oh but I guess it is, glad to see you too think he should be accountable:
    So yeah, looks like it is 'bigs'.
