Apparently the public doesn't agree with you, as his approval rating keeps rising.
He's at 49% disapproval / 44% approval as of Jul. 22, so he's down.

Bush was bad, but Obama is absolutely a complete, miserable failure in all aspects of the Presidency. I think both sides of the isle are bought and paid for, and the president just does the bidding of what ever corporate interests pay the most.



Bush started two wars, lied about WMDS, and during the wars he gave a massive tax cut to the wealthy, a first for America. He gave us the Patriot Act and bailed out banks with almost no oversight.

And he ignored intelligence on 9/11, and he protected the Saudis, and he never really did # to catch Osama.

And he made the whole flipping world, aside from about 5 countries, hate us more than ever before.

Obama would need 10 terms to touch that.

I would give ATS members more credit than the average American idol worshiper who doesn't bother to use any critical thinking skills whatsoever. As in all groups, however, there is bound to be lemmings who follow the herd mentality to their own demise.

Read it carefully, it's a quarterly reckoning.

Obama renewed the patriot act, kept Guantanamo bay open, ordered drone strikes abroad, and spends like a drunken sailor. Like I said before though, I agree that bush was a piece of crap, but where are the anti-war protests now?

Careful there. You might just solve humanity's ever present problem of self destruction if you keep posting rational and coherent logic.

The article is about quarter on quarter increases, which is a more rational way to look at trends than a day to day snapshot.

Obama has shown himself to be useless as POTUS.

Almost 50% like him?

Who'd they poll?
Just democrats?

Considering only a little more than 25% self-identify as Republican I'd say the Romney numbers are more ridiculous.

More than one thing can be ridiculous at the same time.

Why do you find it hard to manipulate a gallup poll. Especially an electronic gallup poll with a specified sample. The only real poll out there is the paper-form hard copy poll.

Life lesson: Every form of electronic based communication is subject to malicious tampering.

Likeable like the plague! I truly do not understand how anyone can support the worst president in U.S. history, and I thought Bush was bad. He has done nothing but send this country further down the path to ruin, and expand upon Bush's war on terror. He has broken numerous promises he campaigned on, divided this country like no one else in history, and people support him???He should be forced to give back his Nobel peace prize, apologize to the American public for the numerous scandals He had knowledge of including fast and furious, and peacefully resign. He has some nerve to run again, and to make things worse his opponent Mittens is no better! We are screwed, I'm voting my conscience and writing in Ron Paul or Gary Johnson.

I'm not a big Obama fan, but I don't "hate him". He's just around "average".

He's not great and wonderful and hasn't solved all the problems of the world, but he hasn't made it any worse. He hasn't cleaned up the extreme mess left behind as well as it should have been cleaned up, but he is cleaning some. I feel someone else could have done a better job, but he really isn't making it worse, regardless of what the extreme right wing may think.

George W Bush was the absolute worst president we have ever had in our history as a nation. He practically destroyed our country and our way of life. Obama is doing an "average" job at cleaning up the mess. We needed someone who could do an exceptional job but we didn't get that.

It really doesn't matter if he's doing great or doing horribly, the extreme right wing is going to hate him, period. The extreme left wing is going to love him, period. It's those of us in the middle he needs to impress. I lean left and I'm indifferent-to-semi-favorable. He's nothing more than "status quo", but that's better than absolutely horrendous like his predecessor.

If he had followed Clinton instead of Bush, the right wing would still hate him because that's what they do. However, the left wing would have a different attitude about him because he's not as good as Clinton and they'd notice it a lot more. He got a Nobel prize for one thing and one thing only...He's NOT George W Bush....and let's face it, that's an accomplishment because that man was pure evil and pure stupid.

As for Romney, he would be "average" too. No matter who wins this election, we're going to get "average" as a result. We went from the best of the best to the worst of the worst, now we'll have average until another exceptional one shows up from one side or the other, from one extreme (really good or really horrible) or the other. Romney's VP pick is going to matter. Obama's decision to keep Biden or switch him out is going to matter. They are similar enough that "the little things" are going to be what makes the difference.

Sorry where's your evidence?

Or is this more paranoia-based reasoning?
