    This goes with the >50% approval ratings for Obama.

    It doesn't seem like people are having buyer's remorse.

    Such spin is so obvious it fails to even qualify as clever.

    How about this - even among Democrats, 73% say the country is moving in the wrong direction. Among Independents, 80% say the country is headed in the wrong direction, and among Republicans, 90% say the country is headed in the wrong direction.

    Nearly 80% of all polled believe the economy is getting worse.

    What will BO's approval rating be when he doubles everybody's power bills?

    It's what The Obama said:

    "What you see in FDR that I hope my team can emulate is, not always getting it right, but projecting a sense of confidence."

    That's what all con men do. That's why they're called con men.

    Obama thinks he's cool hand Luke, can bluff in this game. Except he doesn't realize yet that in this game, you really do gotta have the cards.

    The bluff will work for awhile.

    Well, the new POTUS smell lingers.

    Give us time to catch our breath, and I promise at least some of us will hate Obama just as much as any of us hated Bush.

    The secret to really appreciating crushing disappointments is to hold onto hope just as long as you possible can before plunging into deep dispair.

    Yeah--I bet this poll is correct, he.he.

    So while Americans are watching their retirements disapear, while they're watching their kids college education disappear, while they're watching their home values plummet, while they're scared to death that they may not have a job tommorrow--they believe that the country is on the right track. Yeah--you bet! Fairly soon, all those fantastic speeches will fade into distant memory & reality hits home base.

    What type of people were polled? The parasites of this country that are gleeful that momma government is going to give them free housing & a tank of gas?

    This poll is laughable!

    Personally I think we have a tough row to hoe and there ain't no way around it, but I think we're on the right track to finally acknowledge it, try to do something about it, and stop having a pres who lives in denial about it.

    People can think that the situation is shitty and that it is the right track, at the same time - no contradiction there when you're in a hole that you have to get out of.

    Agreed.

    The masters have been setting us up for this great fall for sometime so, assuming the plan reall is to fix the problems, which I basically doubt, it's going to take us a generation to fix it.

    I personally don't think American has the fortitude to actually change things such that it will be an economic powerhouse again.

    I don't think that's the real goal of the masters, either.

    I don't think this economic disaster stems from a series of unfortunate mistakes, personally.

    I think it's contrived.

    The vast majority are not going to blame Obama, nor should they, for the mess we are in. However, he is now Potus, and the direction he takes us in to bring us out of this mess is on him. If he screws it up and makes things worse, then he will pay the price, no doubt.

    Even the economists can't come to any agreement on what should be done or if the stimulus and bailouts were the right way to go.
