That's an interesting trend, if you take out the time period from Aug 2011 - Nov 2012 when he was campaigning most of the time his approval rating has decreased pretty much the entire time he's been in office.

This isn't helping him either. From Forbes - "One of the fundamental flaws of the Affordable Care Act is that, despite its name, it makes health insurance more expensive. Today, the Manhattan Institute released the most comprehensive analysis yet conducted of premiums under Obamacare for people who shop for coverage on their own. Here’s what we learned. In the average state, Obamacare will increase underlying premiums by 41 percent."

Damn. His reelection chances look bleak, and worse, this means that the Republican congress will stop working with him.

Actually...if you insist on going down the "re-election" track, then I would assert that his election was built on nothing more than false promises and blatant lies.

Since you are a black man, and Loyalty To The Race™ dictates that black people are one giant monolith, how does it make you feel that the first (half) black President lied to you? Doesn't it make you feel stupid for falling for this "clean," "light-skinned," black man of little "negro dialect" (thanks Harry Reid!) who obviously is a spawn of the Used Car Salesman species?

You're mad. I get it.

Bottom line? He kept Romney and McCain out of the White House. And I don't really give a damn how he did it.

BTW...I'm clean and light skinned too. Smoke on that.
