Not much of a "tanking" ... now is it?
Word. And I just got my 401K and mutual fund statements today and they both rose in 2009. I know I'm not the only one who experienced this for 2009. A wise man once told me pocketbooks outweight political alliances. I'd be surprised if Obama isn't above 50% by the end of the 1st quarter of 2010.

You guys ain't seen nothing yet!

When those 911 masterminds walk free or don't get the death penalty, because they were given American rights, Obama's head is gonna swim.

And the chances of that happening are less than 1/10th of 1%. Obama even opnely stated they'd get the death penalty. When and if that occurs his approval rating will only go higher.

Thank you for clarifying what he said.

Anyone would know that could be used in a trial as an excuse for a mistrial when someone states this before the trial begins.

Who is Obama to state what they will get? Is he the judge or the jury?

Talk about being a lame attorney who might have ruined the case against them.

I see his numbers continue to tank, for some reason I believe some dems will go away from this HC bill and not allow it to pass knowing there jobs will be gone soon. Then Obama will get the blame for spending an entire year on an issue that is not of utmost importance such as jobs, security, mortgages etc.

Yes. It will be swell to spend $200M+ on these trials. I'm sure his rating will go through the roof when anyone with half a brain realizing these folks don't need a trial.

Is that supposed to be some sort of humor? It sounds like a six year old child wrote that.

He would rather spend 200b on a mock trial then helping people save their homes from foreclosure.

Someone has their priorities messed up.

You'll have to check with school officials as far as who penned this little ditty as it is in fact the lyrics to the song sung by students at a New Jersey elementary last year.

Oh, I did find the lyrics pretty humorous. Thanks for asking.

And Obama isn't a witness nor person of interest or power in the trial. He's a neutral party. And have you ever heard of a retrial? There are people who have committed murders who have been tried 3 or 4 times.

Yea, and keeping Guatanamo open was free and military trials were free too. Call me crazy but people who committ crimes on American soil should be tried in American courts.
