    In the latest Fox poll, 2/17-1/18, 60% approve and 26% disapprove, down from the Fox poll of 1/27-1/28, 65% approve and 16% disapprove.

    In the latest Gallup poll, 2/16-1/18, 62% approve and 25% disapprove, down from the Gallup poll of 1/21-1/23, 68% approve and 12% disapprove.

    Still very high approval ratings.

    It is still high. And after only a few weeks, he got a huge part of his agenda done. Bad medicine at the beginning. Then people will see the sky hasn't fallen.

    People whining still look pretty silly. His approval ratings are still way higher than Reagan's.

    I do find it odd that every other president was given 100 days before anyone judged them. I guess the 24 hour news cycle is pretty rigorous.

    ... and absurd. ;)

    I bet if you interviewed the 60% who approve, the majority do not have a good understanding of the issues and the history of how and why our Nation is in dire straits. Obama blatantly lied at his first press conference by saying there is no pork spending in the stimulus packaged. ARE YOU KIDDING ME! While campaigning, Obama proclaimed he would review the budget line by line and cut spending of unnecessary programs. Well Mr. Obama, how is giving your ACORN people $4 billion going to create jobs? Besides using this money for voter fraud, today they are sponsoring a state wide event by breaking into homes that were foreclosed on. Obama funds a criminal group. I don't know if you will hear this story on the news, but a radio show talk host in Philadelphia had play-by-play communication with some ACORN activists as they broke into a house that was foreclosed on. Yep ACORN are squatters.

    I love when right wingnuts claim other people don't know what they're talking about.

    well, ms. information, "ACORN" isn't getting 4 billion dollars. And the rest of your post is just a rant.

    Any more untruths you need dispelled?

    I dunno... the right whined for 8 years that Bush should never be judged. And this is simply anger and sour grapes, IMO.

    It makes them look really silly.

    Rant? Okay Ms. Idiot are you saying I didn't hear the interview of an ACORN activist as he broke into a foreclosed home? Now now, you must not live in denial.

    And as far as ACORN money, maybe some Republican Senators actually got to look thru the 1000+ stimulus package and strike it out. It was in the House bill. But either way these ACORN clowns are getting Federal dollars. FACT, ACORN hired individuals to go out and get the vote (Democrat vote, of course), and they committed voter fraud. FACT, ACORN is breaking into and taking back homes for individuals who were foreclosed on. Maybe your news source doesn't like to report the facts.

    Were these voters who committed fraud charged? What with?

    For the past eight years you had a president who stole his first election and lined the pockets of corporate America. Obama has a long way to go before he even comes a smidgen close to what The Chimp and his cronies got up to...so quit your whining and wait until he actually does something wrong...

    Well I can't find anything about 'breaking into homes', but there's this:
