Overall, 52% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance so far. Yesterday and today are the first time that the number of voters who approve of the President’s performance has slipped below the 53% share of the vote he won last November. Forty-eight percent (48%) now disapprove.

Woo hoo. ANd last nite while “on the job” costing millions to visit Russia, he dissed the Russians for a “family nite” at an exclusive restaurant. But since he is there giving away the store, maybe we should be glad.

This guy is imploding.

Another FReeper is keeping track of zer0's popularity by changing his name. Instead of 0bama (zero-bama) he (or she) is calling him -1bama, -3bama, etc.

I wish I had noticed who it was. That's a hoot!

With the credit markets for businesses still basically frozen unemployment will continue to rise for the next year or so. Obama is a COOKED Goose!

Not even the MSM can hide the unemployment numbers. Conservative Democrats are gonna start jumping off his sinking boat.

Also from Rasmussen; a very important KEY in ever turning things around. People are holding on to their cash. And, good! Let’s take this puppy all the way down to zero, get RID of ‘Zero’ and get on with it!

“Nationally, 24% of consumers say the economic conditions in the United States are getting better, down five points from the end of last week. Fifty-two percent (52%) of adults say the economy is getting worse.

The Rasmussen Investor Index, which measures the economic confidence of investors on a daily basis, fell to its lowest level in three months. At 70.3, investor confidence is down fourteen points over the past week and fifteen points over the past month.

Among investors, 26% think the economy is getting better, down five points from yesterday. Most investors (51%) say the economy is getting worse, down from 43% before the job report was released.”

Well, how about that? I just know there have got to be some silly independents who voted for this clown that have got to be having buyer’s remorse by now.

Unfortunately, no matter how many people “wake up”, nothing is going to change unless:

1) Republicans start offering REAL CONSERVATIVE, true small-government candidates. For decades, most (R)’s have been just a different flavor of the same big-government progressive ice cream. When I hear Mitt Romney is at the top of the Republican pool, I know we’re in trouble.

2) We somehow manage to have fair and legitimate elections in spite of the state-run media and ACORN fraud.

IMO, both of these necessary preconditions are dubious.

Yesterday, I was speaking a black doctor who acknowledged the growing unemployment but said the economy was in good shape. When I pressed him, he could not explain how our economy is good but unemployment is a huge problem.

In addition, he said govt health care will never be passed and govt bailout of GM & Chrysler was needed and Bammy has no plans to run the auto industry.

He also said the SCOTUS nominee didn't mean her racist comments.

Sheesh - how much more stupid (or racist) can these libs get?

To put that “somewhat approve” in perspective, I would answer that I somewhat approve because there were a couple of things he did that I liked. But I consider him to be Mussolini II, utterly unqualified for the job, a complete buffoon and the worst president in the last century by a wide margin. And I expect him to only get worse and more desperate.

So that 52% may be taken with a grain of salt. After all, even Hitler and Mussolini did a couple of good things. Volkswagons are nice.

uh-oh. Sliding from “THE Chosen ONE” to “Maybe He’s Not the ONE” in 6 months doesn’t look good.

Can anyone yet explain why the American public bought into this inexperienced leftist. If they were fed up with the GOP, we’d be better off with (gulp, dare I say it)Hillary.

This will just spur the SRM into action.

Look for more and more stories about how the stimulus is work, how the Obamas are dazzling the world, how the climate is healing, how the crippled are walking and the blind are seeing!

And the sheeple will consume the pablum and go back to sleep.

After the election of 08, I have very little faith in Americans.

“Divisive”

Remember that’s the word they used to attack Reagan and Bush? The fact that they hated Reagan and Bush justified their hatred of Reagan and Bush. Now who’s divisive? A man with a fanatical, cult-like following in the media, who is “strongly disapproved of” by 37% of the population.

Among those who have no real strong opinion, Obama leads 20-11. If you suppose that non-registered voters mirror this group, this explains the gap between Rasmussen’s likely voter poll results and Gallup’s poll of all adults. But his presidential approval index probably shows that disapprovers will probably dominate the water cooler talk, and those who don’t feel strongly tend not to vote in off-year elections. Which spells disaster for the Democrats in 2010. Unfortunately, in the Senate, most of the vulnerable seats are Republican, so gains might be modest. But we can win the House.

“I have two family members who voted for O who are having discomfort and regret”

I have one. My mother who came of age in the 60’s. Part of the reason for her idiotic vote was that “the blacks deserved it after all we did to them.”

How I am a conservative is the topic of many family get-togethers.

My guess is John McInsane was a poor alternative. Better than bambi, but a far cry from what we needed.

I really believe 2008 gave us the worst choice of candidates in over a generation.

You're of course correct, and it's pretty scary to consider that we've got 3-1/2 years left of this bozosity. A lot of damage can be done in that time period.
