This summer has not been kind to this president.

A CBS News poll released on Tuesday found that “a majority of Americans have a negative impression of the economy and expect the effects of the recession to linger for years.”

One of the most stinging findings: “Only 13 percent of Americans say Mr. Obama’s economic programs, among them the stimulus package, have helped them personally.

A Gallup poll released on Friday found that satisfaction with the direction of the country among members of the president’s own party has dropped by a fourth since last month.

I don’t know which is more spew-worthy.....

Blows bit or the brain-dead followers in the comment section.

But, for even the NYT’s, it looked to be a about 50-50 split with defender/detractor comments.

This is rich:

Don't worry, man. It's not like he "invested" any of his own money.

I sure hope Obama is as cocky next year as Mr. Blow already is on his behalf.

If it’s really 13%, then he’s even lost some libs.

An unemployed Dem worried about losing his house isn’t going to like this crap much better than an unemployed R or I.
