    Quite a lot of interest in http://www.usmessageboard.com/politics/81668-daily-presidential-tracking-poll.html here. Not surprising really when you consider Newt Gingrich recently made this statement.

    "Since World War II, only Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton have had worse ratings after seven months than President Obama."

    PolitiFact: Sorting out the truth in politics finds this statement to be "TRUE"

    No No it is all about his skin color. We do not like him, not because of his crappy policies, but because he is black, and believe me there are Liberals that will make that claim. Total control by the Dems and they are failing across the board.

    "re elected the second time"

    Dayum... I could soooooo tear THAT apart.

    Now, aren't you glad that Obama can articulate his policies/agenda more clearly, so that we all understand that they are for the good of us all?

    Gerald Ford: Republican. Not reelected.

    Bill Clinton: Democrat. Relelected.
    Left office with sky high approval ratings.
    (this after getting impeached! lol)

    So...if history is a measure....

    RGS - you wouldn't like anything he did. You actually think the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were perfectly planned and executed. I don't know if you got some brain damage from the time you spent in the military, but you should seriously have your head examined.

    *snicker* good point!

    Plus let's not forget that two years into the Reagan administration, Reagan's approval ratings were in the high 30s because of double digit unemployment and a recession that began under his watch.

    Those liberals would not be far from the truth because there is a sizable group of people that don't like Obama because he is blacks, are you going to deny that like the good right wing nut you are?

    Having to clean up Bush Jr's and the 8 years worth of Republican incompetence would put somebody in the whole as far as ratings, so the bass is not surprised.
