The Incredible Shrinking Obama

Seven months into his term and the President in Training Pants is down to a 45% approval. How's that change working out, Barry?
President Barack Obama's job approval rating has sunk to a record low of just 45%, the latest Zogby Interactive poll shows. Fifty-one percent of likely voters now say they disapprove of the President's job performance.

"None of these numbers looks counter-intuitive to me. Gallup, NBC, and Pew all have Obama at record lows. Rasmussen also shows low approval. Things are volatile out there and news travels fast. There is a lot of anxiety over healthcare," said Zogby International President and CEO John Zogby. "The President let it get away from him and voters are scared right now. They are experiencing sacrifice overload and feel more threatened than empowered. The President is being forced to play defense and he is much better when he is in possession of the ball. But do not underestimate Obama. Last August he was toast."
I certainly don't underestimate any Chicago thugs and I must disagree with his being toast last August, unless you consider him being the toast of all the media, whose slobbering love affair with him is still going strong.
