D'oh! That's gotta hurt! I'm convinced that the honeymoon is over for this President. The next 4 years are sure to be as lame duck as it gets.

His legacy will be all about fiscal policy.....specifically that he didn't raise a finger to tame debts/deficits and instead ran as fast as he could towards a $20 TRILLION dollar national debt. He will not be looked upon favorably when the bill comes due during the next generation.

I also believe some of his statements like, "we do not have a spending problem" are not playing well with the true moderates (Independents, libertarians and other swing voters) and he is burning his political capital at an alarming rate.

One way or the other, we'll see.

With Romney, the rape and pillage would probably be pretty equal to the Bush years. But be clear. A lot of the left doesn't like a lot of Obama policies. They'd vote for him again if any wacko GOP candidate ran on the other side, but he's gone way to centrist for their tastes. So any attempt to read these numbers as a liking of the Republican Party is just ridiculous wishful thinking. People need to remember how many millions watched their retirement plans go up in smoke because free marketeers figured the market was enough discipline for banks. We now know NOTHING disciplines banks when they get the scent of big big money. They, the ratings agencies, the insurance companies just wet their pants running after mirages of super-wealth. Only mass amnesia will allow that scenario to be re-enacted.

I saw a poll the other day where Obama got a 50% approval rating. Not sure which daughter is not satisfied.

A ton of Presidents have slogged their way through uneventful second terms, and someone as unpopular as this one (51% of the popular vote was all he could muster) will undoubtedly do likewise, and especially as more bad news regarding what's buried in ObamaCare that nobody at ABC, NBC or CBS bothered to inform the masses about, not to mention the forthcoming sequester, which Obama proposed and which is now coming back with a vengeance to bite him in the you-know-what!

Buyers remorse indeed.
