If only he could keep up Bushs numbers!

This poster is proud to be a part of history. Charting the not so historic rise and meteroric plummeting of a political apprentice. For that is all he can be said to be. Not a professional, certainly. One who constantly fails to impress, abdicates the moral authority of American freedom around the globe, apologizes for ersatz outrages of American industry and basically draws a cultural equivalence between the United States and every other nation in the world, whether it respects liberty, the fact that rights begin with man and are given to the state, and a respect for any nationality to honor those rights, or not.

We are quickly rushing headlong dear readers to the moment, the very day, when I will write “You who hold that Obama is beloved are now in the minority where you always were. The time has merely come where enough Americans have removed their noggins from their posteriors and are paying attention to politics that they see what a mess has been made.” And they will not be happy.

Again, I point out: It took until the Summer or Fall of 2004 for George W Bush to reach similar numbers. BHO has done it inside eight months. More than that, comparing the two Presidents at “the exact same point” in their presidency, Obama is scoring lower there too. While ridicule heaped upon GW is quite earned, I am too much of a gentlemen to speak of BHO in terms of which is deserving. And you know what else? George W scored well personally as a man you would like to have a beer with until the day he left office. This elitist, effete snob spends $250,000 to take his wife to a play. Please!

From The Examiner

Writing in last Thursday’s Wall Street Journal, former Clinton pollster Douglas Schoen and Scott Rasmussen, analyzed some recent polling data and concluded that:

It is simply wrong for commentators to continue to focus on President Barack Obama’s high levels of popularity, and to conclude that these are indicative of high levels of public confidence in the work of his administration. Indeed, a detailed look at recent survey data shows that the opposite is most likely true. The American people are coming to express increasingly significant doubts about his initiatives, and most likely support a different agenda and different policies from those that the Obama administration has advanced.

These recent trends do not bode well for the rhetorical harbinger of Hope and Change. Not only is Obama’s popularity waning, the drop is precipitous relative to other elected presidents of the last two centuries. To add insult to injury, data indicates that Obama’s present popularity ratings is actually below that of George W. Bush during an analogous period in 2001.

As they viewed Republican opposition to Obama’s unprecedented and ambitious plans for radically transforming the political economy, many commentators gleefully concluded, that in the eyes of the public, they were destined to be known as the party of “No.” However, the idea that Republican resistance to Obama’s polices would place them in an intractable position with the American voters was premised on the spurious assumption that Obama’s unrivaled agenda for a massive expansion of the federal government enjoyed wide public support. An analysis of recent survey data reveals clearly that this is not the case.
