    Ugh!! The logical fallacies libs commit hurt my head.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Despite the fact Bush went out at 22%, which one might think would cause conservatives to never bring up presidential job approval ratings right now. Obama is going to be criticised for being at 40%, lol.

    The links correct the perception and did so by pointing out that the numbers used included Bush. Conservative disputed it.

    Yes, Obama took office in January but according to you the entire deficit or most of it was due to Bush's three months in office. That is a lie and a distortion. Shame on you
    No where did I say that. I claimed you don't see the entire picture and exaggerate Obama's role. Pay attention.

    I really am trying to pay attention but you just cannot seem to keep it. You keep posting percentage change and that really is irrelevant. The last Bush budget proposal which was never passed or signed was for 3 trillion dollars. The last Budget proposal from Obama was 3.9 trillion dollars. Now why would you support anyone who proposed spending 900 billion more than he inherited simply because it is 30% increase in 6 years? Seems that it is you that doesn't see the entire picture. Name for me just one Obama economic and foreign policy success during his term in office?

    That is far too logical and realistic.

    Please stop.

    Only those obsessed with what the previous administration did.

    Why would Bush's approval rating have anything to do with Obama's actual performance?

    When we have criticized him for his policies, the progressives responded with "he has a 60% approval rating" as that somehow justifies letting terrorists get away with killing an ambassador.

    Now that Obama has tumbled from his media enhanced throne and entering the 30 percentile range, it's "so what?"..he's still more popular than Bush....

    What is it that all things Obama are measured against the backdrop of Bush, who you guys have claimed is the worst president ever? I would think one would want to compare Obama's record with great presidents. However, I suspect the progressives can't do that since Barack Obama, the man that promised more than any other president is going to come up looking very average against even the very average presidents......Carter always comes to mind.

    Personally, I see nothing but nonsense in looking back to the past, it's what's happening now that counts and in America it has been getting worse at least since Obama, and that's where "progressives need to focus, not on the past...which, really, has about as much to do with progressing as does herpes in polite conversation.

    Then again, the American progressive movement hasn't had a new idea in 11 decades
