Wait, that wasn’t for Prom King?

Posted by Ender on April 11, 2009

The essence of cool?

The essence of cool?

I stumbled across a recent poll by RealClearPolitics. The results of the polls were interesting to me:

President Job Approval  60.4 approve 30.1 disapprove
Congressional Job Approval  33.3 approve 58.0 disapprove
Direction of Country  32.4 right 61.2 wrong

Does anything strike you as odd with these results?  Obama has gotten every single thing he has wanted and yet the country is going in the wrong direction according to the poll, but his approval rating is great.  This is just another example of an uneducated electorate rearing its head.  They are so caught up in his cult of personality that they refuse to acknowledge he is taking the country down the wrong path.

All the Obama fanatics out there listen up.  We get it, we get that you think Obama is the cat’s meow, that he is so cool, that he smokes, that he plays basketball with pants on.  But, just because someone is suave doesn’t mean they can be president or do a good job in the office.  Obama has endeavored to have the most amateurish start to a presidency ever and is succeeding.  He gave the British PM DVDs that could not be played in the UK, he gave the Queen an iPod, he bowed to the Saudi King, he is setting up to make the same mistakes as FDR when it comes to the economy, he hired a tax cheat to be the Treasury Secretary and he called an act of war (by the pirates) a distraction.

He is in over his head.  His initial reaction to every situation has been wrong.  Please take a step back, analyze the situation objectively.  If you think the country is on the wrong track Obama must not be doing a good job.  Last November’s election wasn’t for Prom King, it was for the most important job in America.

    I keep waiting for this amateurish imposter to sit down and let the real president assume leadership. I get a sinking feeling when I hear the media talking about “the president” and realize it’s Obama. He’s in WAY over his head.

    From where I am sitting things seem to be getting better. Stock market is looking better, banks are starting to lend, and most importantly for me, the housing market is improving. While the majority of people still don’t believe the country is heading in the right direction, that number is rising from when Obama first took office. Here are number of polls conducted over several months, and some go back years.

    I don’t see how anyone can argue that he is in on his head. This guy seems to be very calm and level headed and doesn’t make hasty decisions.

    We aren’t even a full 3 months into his administration. As I sated above so far the economic indicators seem to be pointing up. It is still going take time to get things turned around. Unemployment will continue rise probably until early next year. This economy didn’t tank in 3 months and will take more than 3 months to get it right.

    I think you are also forgetting that Saudi Royal family and the Bush family are best buds, if you do not believe me you need to do some research.

    No, I am not forgetting that. But, two wrongs still don’t make a right.

    New AP Poll released today. First time in 5 years that more people thought the country was headed in the right direction than the wrong direction.
