    Brand new Cook poll shows Obama approval having fallen to 57%.

    The economic agitation is growing as Obama appears to shrug at the loss of 3 trillion dollars of private wealth since winning the election with his public dismissal of the Wall Street decline.

    My oh my...

    Talking about it is "wishing" he'd fail.

    Zip it up. Before he takes away your computer rights.

    But trending down...

    And to put into some historical perspective, Carter's approval rating was higher than Obama's at this point in their respective terms - 71%. Obama's current approval rate is quite similar to that of Nixon, Bush I and Bush II.

    The ground upon which Obama stands is based upon continued unmitigated support by the media. As that begins to decline, so too will his approval numbers. As middle America agitation rises, so too will the demands on Obama to maintain his popularity - a task he will most likely be unable to maintain.

    The LA Times had a rather different response to the same poll you cite.

    Obama's dissaproval numbers have doubled - 50% higher than most other newly elected presidents this far into their term.

    And a 10% decline is significant - meaning that many who voted for Obama are now realizing some degree of buyer's remorse.

    I love it. Bobo and Jillie are in fine, slavering, ungrammatical, spastic form.

    That's all the proof I need that things aren't going so hot for the Leftist Jihad.
