Isn't it ridiculous how Republicans foam at the mouth over polls of maybe a thousand people. Nobody expects Obamas numbers to stay high throughout his presidency. It's gonna take longer than 4 years to get this country moving so just hold on to your hats people. Oh and I would use the name of our past president who destroyed our country and it took him 8 years to do it, but I'm not allowed to say his name here :-)

Count me as an approver!

What's interesting is the disconnection between the approval for Obama's policies, which have fairly low approval ratings, and Obama's own ratings, which remain high.

Perhaps it's the belief that it's all Bush's fault anyway that maintains the disconnection. Sooner or later, though, people are going to have to admit that Obama (as a Senator) voted for TARP; that Obama (as President) pushed for the disastrous stimulus bill; that Obama (as President) interfered in a horrible, unjustifiable and unprecedented manner in the GM and Chrysler bankruptcies; that Obama is following the tired liberal tradition of speaking sternly to America's allies and sweetly to America's enemies; that Obama believes wealth redistribution is a civil right (even if the civil rights villains and victims are now long dead); that Obama thinks "fairness" in the tax system is more important that maximizing the government's revenue, even if the proposed "fairness" has as its effect the deadening of economic activity and lower tax revenues; that Obama is either dishonest or intellectually out of his element when he sells the benefits of government health insurance; and that Obama kicks puppies as a hobby.

Okay, I made that last one up.

At some point, I would like to see someone state a reason or a list of reasons why they approve of Barack Obama, other than, "Well, at least he's not George W. Bush!"
