    The greatest failed presidency in American history.

    What? Does Obama think the American people are that stupid?

    Well, about 54% of them must be. But I think they're catching on.

    What is it down to? 32% of the public still approves of Obama?

    "Last week, just 40 percent of these adults approved of how the president was handling health care. More, 47 percent, disapproved. After the speech, 52 percent said they approved and only 38 percent said they disapproved. Those are the best assessments for Mr. Obama's handling of health care shown all year by CBS News Polls"

    What a fickle bunch

    Of course.. why would you believe anything from people you don't agree with. Everyone you don't agree with must be wrong.

    There are way too many polls. Especially these simple "do you approve" or "do you disapprove" polls that don't tell you anything about why people approve or disapprove, or how much they actually care. More interesting might be giving a sample of people an extensive questionaire that would allow a detailed picture to emerge.

    really? Not a year into it and your going to make that broad statement. Lets see did he make the ressesion? NO. Did he get us into TWO wars? NO. He does not think the American people are stupid, but I know you are.
