WOW, I guess Republicans/conservative and right wings learned something from the Bush administration and that is not to even give a President a chance. If whatever they campaigned on doesn't work within the first 6 months in office they should be run out of office. Republicans had eight years to do whatever they wanted to do with the country. It was a total failure. Now after only 7 months in office and a new poll taken every 12 hours the media wants us to believe that the country hates President Obama. The President hasn't hardly had a chance to breathe let alone work the miracles Republicans/conservatives right wings expect. Give me a break, unfortunately we won't be forgetting President Bush as fast as they want us to.

It is such a shame that the people screaming the loudest about everything President Obama has done or is doing didn't do the same during the last eight years. Perhaps if the had, then our country wouldn't be in the shape it is in and President Obama would not have to make such difficult decisions.
Thanks for posting the link

That is a comment that someone posted to the story

The actual story starts out like this

CNN) — President Obama's approval ratings are sinking in a key state that helped seal his White House victory, a new survey out Thursday suggests.

Well I'm not stupid; I know the difference between a story and a comment - the comment was just the first thing I saw. When I open the link it doesn't start at the top of the page so I have to scroll up to actually see the story.

It is getting hard to find anyone who supports him anymore.

The few that are left will follow him to the end no matter what he does.

It took 6 months for people to finally realize what a fool Obama is.

And now, those same people who elected him do not like him and Obama is now calling them out for speaking their minds.

Obama needs to sit down, shut up and get out of the way so the PEOPLE can show him how they want things done.

You do realize, Sunny Day, that you supported Bush for two terms - two of the most disastrous presidential terms in the history of our country. Your credibility is shot. Time for a new ideology for a while. Yours failed miserably.

I know you're salivating for Obama to fail so your myopic ideology can be proven to be the only correct one (simpleton thinking, btw), but the reality is that Obama had the balls to take on one of the most contentious political issues of all time: health care.

Of course his numbers are going to drop when all the lies are circulating about his motivations. They'll rise again once this legislation passes. Give the guy credit. Bush never had the backbone to fix a broken system that murders people for profit.

Your argument is very shallow. What lies pray tell? And as far as his poll numbers rising once the legislation passes... that is flawed logic. If his poll ratings are down because of this proposed health care plan, why would they rise if he pushes it down our throats? The absolute worst thing that can happen for the present administration and the Democrat controlled Congress is if they push this thing through. The backlash will be fast and furious. A lot of people will be looking for new jobs come 2010.
