    Come on. He isn't president any more. He has no photo ops to conduct. What he did here was an honest act.

    Kudos to Bush.

    The troops loved this president, and he loves them, obviously.

    Thank you. Obama is only a "messiah" in the eyes of partisans. The term "messiah" seems to be easily achievable if someone doesn't even need a 50% approval rating to earn it.

    What a short, perverted memory you seem to have. Clinton ignores multiple acts of terrorism against the US (US Cole, 1st WTC attack, and others) and builds their courage and they spring their attack soon after Bush is elected... and after Clinton and company do everything the can to sever the lines of communcations between CIA and FBI to make it harder to uncover such plots.

    Yes, this is Bush's fault... what a joke... what a partisan hack!
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    Funny how Rasmussen is never used unless it can be perverted to make a liberal point.....

    The strongly approve vs. strongly disapprove poll is misleading. If you go by only approve vs. disapprove, Obama has a good approval rating. Those who coat his approval in crap do a disservice to America, in that those who would like to see him hit the door will have a harder job of convincing people to go on the attack, because they will be thinking the the battle is already won. This is a war for the direction that America is going to take, and the first step in winning a war like this is to take an honest assessment, so that subsequent steps can target his weaknesses, and then attack the chinks in his armor. If the people think Obama has already lost, many are not going to fight as hard to remove him.

    Just my two cents here.

    Yes, let's not take a look at trends concerning Obama....Interesting though that you seem to be saying that taking a critical look at him is doing a disservice to America....Why? Can't he stand up to scrutiny?

    What liberal point would that be? That Obama's approval ratings aren't good?

    Pretty respectable hobby, I must say! All it takes is an open mind and common sense... Obama does the rest for those of us who are paying attention!

    I'm just saying that this whole "messiah" thing is old and that now a fair amount of people who voted for him or supported him before are disillusioned with his performance thus far.
