I'm no political genius by any means but isn't it a little early in his career to be experiencing a decline in his approval rating?

One of the fastest, if not THE fastest tankings in history.

With everyone elses attitude toward the United States. You would want the people of the United States hating you aswell. All that does is help him with his ratings abroad.

Same here, I knew this was coming as soon as that "HOpe and Change" bubble exploded and he showed he had ZERO experience in anything. McCain and Palin would have had a tough time but wouldn't have grown government or appologized to the world for us being a super power

Why should we give a rat's ass about what the rest of the globe thinks?
As a free thinking, sovereign society, we should never fall into that trap.

If they like him so damn much, they can have him. I'll donate some time to helping him pack and GTFO.

Funny part is Bush's rating got pretty low. I think that was due to the on-going SWA war/problems and they felt he did not have a plan.

I always felt that the republicans maintained realistic goals.

It seems that Obama/Dems lied about a lot and had unrealistic goals which always worried me. Anyway, their plan for Iraq/Afghan is not any different then the reps. It is a military issue and in general should be handled by the people highly trained/experience in these matters.

Problem is the general populous knows NOTHING about military matters and could not see the writing on the wall. Or rather the lies that were spewed.

Might as well have promised everyone would be billionaires with no inflation.

The remarkable thing about Obama's decline is it is happening with the media pulling for him and Bush lost his with the media driving the decline.

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

Actually, the honeymoon with the media may be over from what i've been reading. Obama has tried to blame the media for the healthcare fiasco. Which i'm sure probably pissed off a few journalists. And i have noticed more and more articles being critical of the messiah lately.

I look for more critical coverage in the future, and less obamamania.

If you're right, and the press turns on him, it will resemble that scene from "Jaws" where Quint is getting drug off the boat by the shark...LOL!

He and everybody else knows he meant Fox News. Being a completely leftist news information outlet is quite alright, but having mainly conservative journalists is completely and utterly unaccfuckingeptable!

Wednesday is hump day when a good portion of Americans prove to be at their dumbest right behind Friday afternoon because they are thinking about Friday afternoon.

I recall Good Morning America covering a couple with a contributor once, but that was it.
Thats even better, with obama blaming the media while they are all fawning over him LOL.... (except fox news, of course).

I still think that he is slowly pissing off the media and a lot of his support base. We'll see come the 2010 elections.

How the hell is he starting to rebound, especially following the announcement of his propaganda video he plans on shoving down the throats of our public school youth?!
