Obama to Skip Jury Duty

The way things are going for this guy one would think a break for jury duty would be a good idea. He could play up his common man schtick and at the same time be prevented from further damaging the economy with ceaseless attack on businesses.
To wit: Sneed has learned Obama's name has popped up on a list for jury duty at the southwest suburban courthouse in Bridgeview on Monday, but it's a safe bet POTUS won't show up 'cuz he has . . .

. . . better things to do.

. . . the nation to worry about.

. . . the economy to fix.

. . . health-care bill to rework.

"The president won't be expected to show up, but I'm sure he has already received his summons and responded," a top court source said. "The jury summons contains his Kenwood address and is for a jury trial on Monday."
If he really was "worried" about the nation he'd move on from his disastrous health-care bill and re-focus his energy elsewhere. Bet he wishes he could jump start his failed War on Fox News again.

Today in the Rasmussen index Obama is at a sickly -19 approval rating. A year ago today he was at +29, a swing of 48 points. His "strong approval" from Democrats in now at only 48%.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 24% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19.

These figures come from nightly telephone surveys and are reported on a three-day rolling average basis. Today’s update is the first based entirely upon interviews following Tuesday’s election in Massachusetts and the Approval Index has fallen eight points since Tuesday morning.

The number of Democrats who Strongly Approve has fallen from 55% on Tuesday morning to 48% today. The number of unaffiliated voters who Strongly Disapprove has increased from 43% on Tuesday to 51% today. It remains to be seen whether those changes are a temporary reaction in the wake of a stunning election upset or the beginning of a more lasting change.
Just since Tuesday his number have cratered. It's not just the world bidding farewell to Obama. Finally the American people are as well.
