    Obama's 47 Percent Approval Lowest of Any President at This Point

    President Obama's job approval rating has fallen to 47 percent in the latest Gallup poll, the lowest ever recorded for any president at this point in his term.

    Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and even Richard Nixon all had higher approval ratings 10-and-a-half months into their presidencies. Obama's immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush, had an approval rating of 86 percent, or 39 points higher than Obama at this stage. Bush's support came shortly after he launched the war in Afghanistan in response to the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    ...

    When Gallup began taking presidential approval polls 71 years ago, Franklin Roosevelt had been president for more than five years. During his remaining time in office, his job approval rating never fell below 48 percent.

    The next 11 presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, all had higher job approval ratings than Obama at this stage of their tenure. Their ratings were:

    -- George W. Bush, 86 percent
    -- Bill Clinton, 52 percent
    -- George H.W. Bush, 71 percent
    -- Ronald Reagan, 49 percent
    -- Jimmy Carter, 57 percent
    -- Gerald Ford, 52 percent
    -- Richard Nixon, 59 percent
    -- Lyndon Johnson, 74 percent
    -- John Kennedy, 77 percent
    -- Dwight Eisenhower, 69 percent
    -- Harry Truman, 49 percent

    I used to think Obama was destined for two terms but I see now there is a strong possibility he will be a one term president. I sure the hell hope so.

    Now that's change I can believe in!

    That would be great, and I expect it, but the far more important task is 2010.

    Take the House and Senate as with Clinton, and let him flap in the wind. Unlike Clinton who just kicked back and took credit, it'll drive Obama and his Chicago enterage insane.

    Obama inherited a lot of ****, and the republicans like to blame him for stuff that wasn't his fault.

    He inherited a lot of ****, and he's spent the last year ****ing it far worse.

    He inheritied the worst part of it from his own - Dodd, Frank, Pelosi, Reid, etc.

    Yeah, that should be reserved only for demo's to do to a repub president.

    Seriously, how long will you liberals use this "inherited" crap to excuse poor governance?

    If he spent less time catering to special interests and more time trying to create jobs and grow the economy, he wouldn't be in this mess.

    It doesn't matter how many terms he serves. The next guy will be just as bad.

    Sadly, this is probably true.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
