    LOL Your bias is showing. Obama's approval rating is on par with Saint Reagan. Maybe we should put Obama on some money.
    WASHINGTON, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- According to recent polls, President Obama's approval rating for his sixth year is higher than President Bush's and close to President Reagan's at the same point in their presidencies.

    A recent Gallup poll shows Obama with a term average of a 48 percent approval rating, and 45 percent approval for the most recently recorded weekly average. In comparison, George Bush was at 37 percent at the same point in his presidency and Reagan was at 48 percent.

    In the political climate of the last 20 years that is resounding approval.

    So the half of the population who would be expected to support anything he does are actually coming back to the fold. What a shock. Certainly breaking news.

    Are you reading what you post?

    Btw, where have I ever used Reagan as an example of what someone should do as POTUS?

    Obama is great when you lower the bar far enough.

    I'm sorry, I thought you had someone to support from your party who actually won. Apparently not and I would agree.

    Well I guess it all depends on how history remembers him. Reagan was 50% at this point and he's regarded fondly by conservatives as one of the best Presidents in the modern era. We'll just have to see if history is equally kind to Obama. I think he will be. He doesn't have Reagan's "presided over the fall of the USSR" crowdpleasing tagline, but as a guy who kept the United States chugging along, as well as leading us, slowly by surely, out of the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression, when the the dust settles Obama will be remembered as having been a fine president.

    While the other half provide them with a republican congress.

    Compared to 31%? Yeah, I'll say. He's tied with Reagan in any case.
