Yeah, I bet it is driving them nuts, his approval ratings are almost as high as Bush's were at the same point in his presidency....

His approval ratings will be significantly higher 1-2 years down the road - when the economy and the job market are on the mend.

Wow. Rush was right. He predicted while Obama was driving us off a cliff, the media would be telling us how good things are going. Meanwhile, we had our worst GDP drop in decades in the first quarter.

But when you think about it, the media HAS to prop this cipher up, because they are so highly invested in him. If they let people know what a failure he is, THEY'LL look like idiots. (As if they don't already to normal people.)

Only from those uneducated enough to give Obama credit for a NATURAL economic cycle..
I bet you'll put his approval rating near 238%, now go back and read the previous sentence and think about it...

Yeah, tax increases, gov't spending, deficits, and hammering of the private sector is the EXACT recipe for a booming economy. Look how prosperous Cuba has been over the past 50 years.

I just hope there's something left in two years.

Ohhh how unpredictable - personal insults from MrP... how totally unexpected.. ROFLMAO!!!

You see my dear but confused friend, Obama gets credit for whatever works during his administration, and blame for whatever doesn't...

Sorry - but those have been the political rules of the road for Presidents since the first model came out....

Guess you can throw a temper tantrum though to voice your disapproval though and try to change the political rules.

That's true. It takes at least 6 months for a new President's economic policies to have an effect on the economy.
