I can hear the Obama apologists now: President Obama is heroically strengthening the very fabric of humanity, while single handedly tackling the worst recession since the great depression, which he inherited from George W. Bush. And today, we found that his approval ratings are higher than another great president, Jimmie Carter!

You know that's what they're thinking.

Where was Regan at this time? If I recall correctly, the press had pounded him over the head so well that he was unpopular too at this point.

Remember Ronald Rayguns, and the Nuclear Freeze movement?

Yeah, and where did Reagan end up? Where will Obama end up?

Regan was about 41-42. He bottomed out around 38 and then had a sharp increase.

I'm shocked. There is some sanity in this country after all.

While Obama continously whines about Bush but while he was a senator Obama's track record helped make the recession we see today...

Sadly Bush seemed to have a real aversion to using the veto pen though...

As pleased as I am that Obama's cult of personality is fading and that things look positive for Republicans in the mid-terms, I can't help believe that somehow, someway Republicans will manage to find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Please RNC, don't 'Coug it'!!!!

Obviously, Benji hasn't checked in yet or we'd already have read his usual non sequiturs about farm subsidies and the military.

Just for fun, go watch this creepy children's video, one of many, and feel a little nostalgia for one of the greatest propaganda campaigns in history. We were so young and innocent then...

I've been saying since his nom that Obama would be Carter Revisited for the American people.

Hey OBH, I think Victor Davis Hanson speaks to what you're saying...:-)
