    The difference is, Reagan was elected to a second term. Obama won't be!
    After all, Reagan was our greatest president. Obama is an idiot!
    Imagine that, a sitting president appointing a self avowed anti-american communist pig to his administration. Absolutely dispicable!..A blatant slap in the face to all who have shed blood or died fighting the scurge that is communism. But we shouldn't be surprised. After all, he launched his political career in the home of an anti-american scumbag who blatantly sought to MURDER our fellow citizens!

    eh, too early.

    And Carville is comparing Obama to 2 presidents who left office on a high approval rating, saying that Obama's approval is higher than theirs was at the same point. I think I need to remind Mr Carville that Bush had, by this time next week, the highest approval rating ever for a president....and then left office with the lowest.

    I thought it was interesting. And of course, it's early... but if you listen to the psychos you'd think that a president with a 52% approval rating is somehow doomed to one-term status. That's simply absurd.

    In fact, Clinton had such a rough first two years that it cost the dems congress and ultimately led to his harassment at the hands of repubs who spent 70 million dollars pursing a failed land deal.

    Bush had the highest approval rating a week from now not because of anything he did, but because we were attacked and we all gathered 'round him. (unlike the wingnut assertion that dems somehow always objected to everything he did). I am hopeful that such a situation never occurs again even to artificially elevate our current president's approval ratings.

    For a legitimate reason. His decisions put us where we were in November. Obama already proved he wont make those type mistakes, and he Obama does not have a vice president who ties to Haliburton either.
