Public pessimism about the direction of the country has jumped to its highest level in nearly three years, erasing the sense of hope that followed President Obamas inauguration and pushing his approval ratings to a record low, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
More than 60 percent of those surveyed say they disapprove of the way the president is handling the economy and, what has become issue No. 1, the stagnant jobs situation. Just 43 percent now approve of the job he is doing overall, a new career low; 53 percent disapprove, a new high.
As part of a reinvigorated effort to regain momentum as he heads toward the 2012 election year, Obama traveled to Detroit on Monday for a Labor Day appearance that served as a prelude to his speech Thursday to a joint session of Congress in which he will unveil new proposals to create jobs.
The urgency for Obama to act is driven not just by the most recent unemployment report, which on Friday showed no job growth in August and the unemployment rate stuck at 9.1 percent, but also by the depth of the political hole in which the president finds himself. Even more than two-thirds of those who voted for Obama say things are badly off course.

I could live my life and leave my kids millions if I just had what he spent on Air Force One and it’s subsidiary flights last year.Planes carrying helicopters, limousines, SUV’s to travel with his Highness. Planes even to carry his damned busses. I could retire off what we spend flying the Wookie around.
Cut and paste: (you'll need a strong scrolling finger)
Poor “victim” Obama. Damn racist tea-baggers are the blame (and Bush too)
My hope is that in Jan 013 the next POTUS deports Baraq’s illegal relatives, and Baraq himself if he can’t provide substantive proof of citizenship.
Change is coming in 2012...
The MSM continues to grease the skids out the door for the day the Clintons finally decide it’s time to push
