    Obama's approval ratings this year had a low of 47% and a high of 51%. The most current poll shows 49% which isn't bad considering the country is in the middle of a recession he inherited from Bush. Reagan's approval ratings at this point in his presidency was 45%.

    Presidential Approval Ratings -- Barack Obama

    Obama's approval rating is 46%.

    Same as it has been for the last year or so.

    I read up until this point......

    Then chalked it up as another extreme right wing diatribe spouting the same tired talking points and half truths

    That is 46% of the population still clinging to Mao, their Marx, their Che, clinging to catchy phrases like "up the revolution!" "industrial military complex" and their broken dreams of human slavery, and trust me, they dont care who they enslave.... the producers or the workers.:eusa_shhh: In all things they are equal opportunity dirtbags who cannot wait to kiss Chavez on both cheeks.

    The whole "the sleeper has awakened" meme is a childish, ridiculous rallying cry. It's an attempt at making oneself seem more important than you really are.

    Oh YOURE the badass america's been holding out for? greaaaaaat.
