    ...or, JUST MAYBE, people bought in to his rhetoric and broken promises packaged as "Change."

    To my knowledge, no media source would be as suicidal as to specifically state that the government could "fix" everything, but that doesn't stop people from hearing what they want to hear.



    (p.s. I know...It didn't help any that the previous administration had botched things up so effectively either.)
    People elected him because the majority agreed with his policies.

    Like GWB? Funny how the public perception rewards incompetence.

    Re: Obama's approval rating at 45%

    Maybe if Obama's rating gets down to 28%....the GOP might actually have a shot.

    Even Sarah Palin might have a shot!

    What policies were those? He consistently changes his stance, still has no idea what he stands for and has broken quite a few of his campaign promises already...

    People elected him because the alternative wasn't as appealing.

    It's as simple as that.

    Every election boils down to a choice between two alternatives.

    Considering how absolutely unappealing the GOP ticket was this go-round, ANY democrat nominated would have won. Policies had very little to do with it.

    End of story.

    Two words, "stimulus package". Remember how that had to be passed, immediately, to stave off disaster?

    Never have we heard the current government claim that the private sector could fix the economy. So far, all we've heard is that the private sector is to blame for the recession.
