    My Oh My - things getting increasingly tough for Barry and the Big Government Crowd...
    ___


    When voters were asked in a CNN/Opinion Research survey published on Tuesday to rate Obama's performance since taking office, 48 percent judged it a failure, and 47 percent saw a success.


    ...Just 36 percent of Americans approve of Obama's handling of health care, down from 42 percent in December and 47 percent in October, CBS said.

    ...But the White House will be concerned by the CBS finding that Obama's standing among independent voters whom he attracted in his 2008 election triumph has fallen to 42 percent -- a decline of 10 points in the last few months alone.


    Americans split on Obama first year: polls

    Bush left office with a mere 22% approval rating and you hacks still claim he was one of our best Presidents. Why the double standard on poll numbers?

    Of coarse it is Obamas fault. Unlike Booooosh who owned up to nothing Barry has admitted there is much still to do to recover from our economic disaster left for him to repair by persons unknown.

    Just click the heals of your ruby red slippers three times and everything will be better.

    I would like you to provide where someone proclaimed Bush II as one of the 'best presidents'... and we're not talking about a whacko like KMAN proclaiming it

    Oh come on, DD...there are many on this board, as well as on the old MSNBC board who to this day proclaim Bush a hero for invading Iraq and "keeping us safe"...

    VYanks post was simply another deflective lie.

    He has nothing to say regarding Obama's failings, so he scurries back to crying BUSH!!!

    Bush lost support among conservatives and Independents - thus his low polling upon leaving office. These same Independents and Conservatives helped clean out Congress in 2006 - and to some extent, gave Obama a chance to provide "change" in 2008.

    It appears most of those same Indepedents and Conservatives are utterly disgusted by Obama's failings - and those of the Big Government Democrat leadership, that 2010 will prove yet another attempted Correction Election.

    I wonder if it is not in the nature of this country to see the hole and miss the rest? Watching American Idol last evening was like watching America, a small percentage talented and the rest blaming the judges for being judges. If Obama is a failure, Americans need to look at themselves. How is we support our nation, do we support our workers, do we fight to end the senseless spending on war, do we buy American, do we help each other and not just corporations whose goal is profit, do we ask about outsourcing, why don't we have healthcare, why do we argue the trivial, soon if we continue to buy only the negative and do nothing good for all Americans, we will be a third rate nation. Watch and see and good luck.

    "People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty and justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary." Adam Smith

    Difference between 'keeping us safe' and being 'one of our best presidents'... as you well should know... so I would like proof of a non-troll non-whack REP or conservative that has been proclaiming Bush as 'one of our best presidents'
