    I get the idea that President Obama is VERY unpopular right about now. People are calling him a "lame duck" president, a "liar" and a host of other, very nasty names. Even the so-called "liberal media" seems to be down on him. As for Fox News, well, that goes without saying.

    But wait a minute - I seem to remember when George W. Bush was unpopular as well. And what did we get from the Republican Noise Machine while all that was going on? "Unpopularity is the sign of a strong president. He may be unpopular now, but that is just strong leadership. History will be kind to President Bush. Ultimately, he will go down as one of our greatest presidents."

    Remember that one, cons?

    OK - that being the case . . . .

    You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time.

    If the Republican Noise Machine included Fox News, then your comparison is flawed.

    All the major cable news networks still support Obama and the A.P. might as well be on the payroll so when the left admits that Barry's popularity is slipping it really means that things are pretty bad for the former community activist.

    Honestly, what's the point of this thread? Did you really start a thread because a random thought went through your mind? What are we to debate, is Obama a strong President? Most Dems wouldn’t say Obama is a strong President and most conservatives didn’t think Bush was a strong president, no matter what Fox News said… Do I really need to pull out Bush’s 28% approval rating?

    Nope... we're aware. Yet they are and refuse to acknowledge it.
