    GREAT idea...34 months into Bush's presidency his approval rating based on averaging 14 polls was 65%. Is this what your were refering to?

Apparently high debt, high unemployment, massive growth in the Federal Govt. is what you support.

    The Obama record speaks for itself as does your support for that record.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 2.6 million fewer jobs, 4.2 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.
    Shrub had the advantage of 911. The biggest foreign attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor rallied Americans behind him. After that it was an unrelenting seven year slide that saw him finish up as one of the least popular presidents in history. The only reason he won reelection is that the Dems nominated an incredibly uncharismatic guy who failed to rally the opposition. Sound familiar?

    First you compare your boys approval rating to W trying the make him look good...

    Then you move STRAIGHT into the STANDARD LIBERAL tactic of 'blame BUSH'. When does it end? Didn't your boy's partner state last week that 'we own this economy'? Did he lie or are you in denial?

    According to Gallup, his approval rating at THIS point in his first term was 55% -- which represented a 30% drop in just two years. If Obama had the same negative momentum, his current approval rating would barely top 20%.

    What is familar is that you and other Obama supporters are still buying the flowery rhetoric and ignoring the record. If that is how you operate in real life you are going to be a failure. Results matter, not rhetoric. As time goes buy the Bush ratings have gone up and the only one smiling now is Carter who is being replaced as the worst President in modern history by Obama.

    Some people will always tell you how great they are whereas others prove how great they are. Obama is the former and that isn't what we need in the WH. Leadership isn't something he understands and that is what this country needs right now. I believe Romney will defeat Obama easily.

    No. Nor is it Obama's fault that the Republicans are going to nominate Romney.

    Romney will make Obama look like the boy child that he is. Obama has zero leadership skills, is a divider, and doesn't have a clue how to manage anything. You support him because neither do you

    MAYBE you missed the point in my post that the 65% was based on an average of 14 polls, including Gallup (I know the attachment is small). Anyone can pick and choose a poll to support any position. BUT to average several, 14 being extreme, to support a position lends MUCH more validity. Don't you think?
