Yeah. It slipped from 80%, though. And it's still well above 50% and currently rising
Now you can boo that all you want, but the plain fact is... Obama walked into the room and got 80% approval, while Bush only saw 80% approval after
over three thousand Americans were murdered. Reagan, the patron saint of being a right-wing dumbass, never once got past 69% approval.
So yeah, Obama's approval slipped. it slipped down and plateaued at an average higher than the best of your best.
That's nice...one problem he still hasn't done anything but cause an increasingly polarized divided nation through inflamatory rhetoric and strong
arm intimidation tactics, oh and give away trillions of dollars to the richest corporations and people in America.
Oh and pay about 3,000.00 dollars too much to destroy old 500.00 dollar cars!
That all might be really cool to the Anime crowd but 8 months into his Administration he has lost over a 1/3 of his support by your own admission.
Additionally by your own admission his initial high support was based on the 'promise' of who he might be and what he might be able to do...not on
an actual track record of success or accomplishment that boiled and filtered down into people's pockets and homes.
Further if you don't think loosing 1/3 of your constituents and supporters in 8 short months is a grim sign, and actually think it translates to
success you should try owning a business.
You see in a business, if you started out making 80.00 a day and ended up in short order only making 50.00 a day, well you understand looking in your
pocket that something isn't going quite right.
You ae young and naive and idealistic and simply believe in hope for the sake of hope and have placed your hopes in a man who is FAILING rapidly and
the numbers don't lie.
50 is a lot less than 80!
It's a loss of more than 1/3.
It's a loss of more than 1/3 in less than 1/4 of the time you are allotted in your 4 year term.
In business you forecast by trending, at the rate of loss in another year and 4 months his poll numbers will be at Zero which in reality is what he is
a Zero because the longer he stays in the room that 80% of the people were excited to see him walk in to, and keeps exposing himself as a Zero the
closer his polls are going to go to Zero.
So what has your hero done besides give away billions to rich corporations, buy old clunkers for too much money, and cause violence in the streets at
town hall meetings?
I would love to know...
Do you know?
