Maybe some here can't see what passing the Obamacare bill did for this situation but maybe some won't even look at the numbers provided.

Better yet look at the Presidential approval/disapproval daily poll to see what it did for Obama and the fact that the bounce is wearing out. He went from -10 to -14 in just one day, yesterday to today.

So those who won't click on the link let me tell you that those who approve of the direction we are going are 35% and those who disagree are 61%. Some very interesting information about who makes up most of each group.

Well mildly put, if you watched the political shows i did this morning, different ones infact, they have the majority of Americans disaproving with Obama's handling of the Economy, our Job Situation, the Housing Crisis, and they feel that the Stimulus Bill, has done absoutely nothing to help us in any way, Infact most Americans do not see Obama, getting us out of this mess, but further and deeper into it. Interesting show, put a spin, that so many who voted for him, are now beginning to see a clear picture, of this president, who was to bring a new HOPE AND CHANGE ERA. Clearly he has missed the mark.

The right or wrong direction for what? A lot of Americans felt the country was moving in the wrong direction when slavery was abolished. This question is entirely subjective and, due to the fact that everyone is different, will never be "resolved" officially. Like any other nation, we're not stagnant; we're in a constant state of flux. The one thing we CAN count on is change; it's human nature.

So this question is a very tricky one, and I'm pretty sure you knew before even asking it that the conservatives are all going to say "Wrong direction!" and the liberals are all going to say "Right direction!", but carry on.

No, he has hit his mark squarely and right on target. He has definitely brought about change. He has also solidified hope in the conservative party that we can recover when he is gone.

I am neither right or left wing, but I favor much more conservative financial tactics that this presidency has implemented.
