Obama loses bin Laden bounce; Romney on the move among GOP contenders

Quote:
The public opinion boost President Obama received after the killing of Osama bin Laden has dissipated, and Americans’ disapproval of how he is handling the nation’s economy and the deficit has reached new highs, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Killing bin Laden now doesn't mean anything. The Taliban is alive and well and still plotting our demise. We've been hunting bin Laden for over 10 years now. Kids that were 10 are now 20..adults.
They grew up with us "hunting down bin Laden". We got him but what's changed ? Nothing.

His 5 minutes of fame is over.

That poll brings Obama good news. Romney probably won't win the nomination and if he does, the tea party/conservative base won't support him. Either way, good news for Obama.

Too bad Conservatives might be complacent enough to follow a RINO and a proven loser to McCain...a distant 3rd in 2008 to Obama at best.

Wake up people! Romney is every bit as Progressive-big government Constitutional rights violator as Obama. (see Romneycare & Mass. AWB)

H*ll's bells, Obama gives aid and comfort to al-Qaeda in Libya. Our enemy is within!

[YAWN]...Yes he lost the bounce.

Yes he's at the same approval level he's been at for two years.

Keep starting threads about how Michelle Obama lied about what vegetables she grows in her garden

That should do the trick....lol

Romney should make an interesting Republican candidate.

I wonder how enthusiastic the Tea-Partiers will be about his campaign?

Mitt Romney is basically George W. Bush Jr. 2.0. He's a person of privilege who will promote the interest of the privileged class. There is nothing in this guys life that relates to the expeirences of working Americans.
