    He won't care what his numbers are...he will just care about his legacy.

    And people are so wishy-washy...no matter how much the POTUS sucks, people almost always think better of most POTUS's the longer they are out of office.

    "Gee - he wasn't that bad'.
    I doubt he cares at all about his 'legacy'. He's there for the 'perks', and they'll continue.

    Not really, all of those have mirror images in the current administration. However, you're too much of a Conservative pretending to be an "independent" to see it. Now run off, I've got no time for extraneous posters tonight.

    Are you talking about CNN or the Cartoon Network?? Hard to tell the difference sometime, although the Cartoon Network probably has higher ratings.

    the public is very knowledgeable about foreign affairs, so their opinion of how Obama is doing in that regard really, really matters ... please, give me a break ... the GOP even fielded a candidate in 2012 who didn't know squat about international relations other than where to hide his money ... At the end of the day he will be judged principally on how well the country was doing economically when he left office and how much he will be blamed versus the guy who preceded him who took us to the brink of a depression ...

    Presidents tend to get popular after their administrative duties are over...for example, FDR, Clinton, & even Bush to a certain extent. Also, Obama gets a lot of hate, but just one quick reading of Lincoln's administrative unpopularity should be able to boost his morale to do better .

    You forgot the little "sarcasm" thingy.....

    Every day another one of Romney's predictions on foreign affairs if being proved true.

    This president has been a foreign policy disaster, one after another.

    The Democrats fielded a candidate in 2008 who didn't know squat about international relations. His name was Barack Obama.
