    And some of you spend day after day posting on this board trying to convince people the man can walk on water.

    Well, he still can't.

    Why would i waste my time trying to "desperately prove" anything. President Obama has already demonstrated he is an awful President. But that's usually what happens when you elect power hungry politicians instead of experienced leaders into office.

    What is this blinding love affair that you have that doesn't allow you to see that there are real reasons to criticize the philosophy and the actions of Pres. Obama? How about some respect for the intelligence of individuals on the other side of the argument? Perhaps it's not hate that drives his critics.

    Yup and as I recall Bush had 92 percent approval and remained in the 70's for quite some time. So I guess the response to you Bush haters is " we are glad you do not represent the country"

    In fact Bush has the HIGHEST ever approval rating of ANY President EVER. Obama is not even close. And already falling. Which will just get worse as he spends trillions more we do NOT have on his cronies and buddies.

    Remind me again? Bush spent a trillion on 2 wars and that was bad, but Obama wanting to spend 3 trillion with out even factoring in the wars is somehow a GOOD thing? 3 trillion not counting the annual budgets either. Bush doubled the deficit in 8 years, Obama plans to double the NEW one in 4 and you think that is GREAT?

    An awful president? To whom? People who got it wrong for eight years and are still deadenders?

    S'okay...

    Obama has a 62% approval rating and 26% disapproval rating. I think he's alright with that. Me, too.


    Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval

    Interestingly, what the whingers aren't talking about is that Congress' approval ratings are at a four year high. Hmmmmmmmm....

    And the feeling about the direction of the country, while still not high, is certainly higher than at any time over the last four years at least.

    So I wouldn't go throwing any parties yet if I were you guys. Is all of this subject to change? Of course. But the whingers aren't representative of anyone but themselves. My feeling is that after being wrong for eight years, they really should just get out of the way and be quiet for a while before they embarrass themselves further.

    The only ones who use rhetoric like that are the rightwingnuts. They establish that as their argument and then use the fallacious argument to make further fallacious points.

    I'm sure it works for some people. *shrug*

    This is from Newsweek, an Obama supporter:

    "Obama still has the approval of the people, but the establishment is beginning to mumble that the president may not have what it takes. "
    A Turning Tide? | Print Article | Newsweek.com

    Paglia, not a supporter, writes:
    "President Obama's clumsy, smirky staff is sinking him..." at Salon.com
