    Like Hanson or not, his analysis is very good. That and the word of the day:

    Pentelic Pen*tel"ic\, Pentelican \Pen*tel"i*can\, a. Of or pertaining to Mount Pentelicus, near Athens, famous for its fine white marble quarries; obtained from Mount Pentelicus; as, the Pentelic marble of which the Parthenon is built.

    There's lots more at the site, I just used the opening and closing. As I said, well thought out and each deals with issues discussed over and over again here. The real panic setting in for the liberals is they KNOW the conservatives are focused on the issues and decisions, not with name calling as they were for 8 long years....

    There are an increasing number of contradictions in the President's methods, policies, statements, and philosophy from what was expected. Except for the committed Kool-Aid drinkers and those most responsible for his election, who are then also most invested, the MSM, ordinary people of both parties can't help feeling they're being taken for a ride. The fear is growing that it's not going to be a ride ending in a "happy place".

    Even, or maybe more-so, those outside the US recognize that the "Rule of law" is being given short shrift by this administration and the rest of the over-reachers amongst the Ds in our governmental elite.

    President Obama has not had four months in office, yet. We shall see how his policies play out. But after eight years of Bush, we are all aware how his, and his supporters, policies played out.

    Incompetance, failure, and idiocy are hardly a good platform for critisizing the present administration from. If Obama's policies fail, then I, and most Dems, will call him on it. We will not be kissing his ass like you fellows still do in defending criminal actions of the last administration.

    Rocks the only difference between Obama and Bush can be summed up in one word. More. More of what you say? How about of everything More War in Afghanistan and Pakistan, more social spending, more pork, more earmarks, more this , more that , and more of the other.

    How can any Democrat who bitched about Bush's spending for the last eight years set there with a straight face and say that Obama's spending is good? Obama is going to spend damn near as much in his first year, albeit with the help of Reid and Pelosi as Bush did in his first two, and recite the idiotic mantra, Bush bad, Obama good, like some bunch of ancient idol worshippers bowing and scraping at the feet of your all to modern God King complete with ersatz columns and Olympian Ayres.

    If the point of this thread is to convince us that Obama's approval rating are bound to drop, it wasn't really necessary.

    I think any political realist understands that this POTUS is bound to experience drops in approval rating as people become increasing frustrated by the economy and the job picture.

    And his policies in the MidEAST are bound to lose him support with same the anti-imperialism crowd who faulted Bush II, too.
