    And unavoidable.

    I can't wait until he doesn't have that new car smell anymore and we can just get on with the business of running the country.

    Sad thing, in our "American Idol" culture, they will likely find a way to make him "popular" again through publicity stunts.

    That's what I found admirable about Bush. He wasn't worried about his approval rating he just did what he thought was right regardless of what people would think.

    Well the economy would have to improve and that is not likely since he is shifiting wealth into the hands of the government rather than private citizens.

    Jr. didn't do what he thought was right, he just did what he wanted. That's the issue I have with Jr.. But you are right, his one redeeming quality was that he didn't live on the pop culture waves like Obama is.

    I hate pop culture.

    according to the newest abc news/washington post poll as discussed on their this week show 63 percent of Americans trust Obama over the GOP on the economy and about the same feel that he is doing a better job than the republicans at trying to work with and get along with the other side

    He has no place to go but down. I almost feel sorry for the guy. He was mad into a god by the media. The ones that put him on the pedestal will be the same ones tearing him apart.

    LifeLongDem,

    I used to be one of those then I grew up.

    I am now an avid moderate/Independent. You know one of those folks who actually decide the elections. Since the Republicans are mostly a non factor polls relating them to Obama are rather mute. Wouldn't you say? Isn't it time to get over the election and focus on the here and now? The here and now is stating that Obama is on many wrong tracks and the numbers are backing it up.
