Happened to Bush till 9/11, when it spiked up, then started back on the trend, happened to Clinton, happened to Reagan and Carter. Did not happen quite like that to Bush the elder, and I am not 100 % sure why. He is the exception.

    With the president's approval dropping as they always do, and the economy still mired in bad news(which I don't think any one person or party is entirely responsible for, nor do I think Obama could have fixed it by now), and the extreme lopsidedness in the makeup of the house and senate, I think republican gains are inevitable. I also don't think anything Obama could have done would have changed this. So it's not so much his policy, as that democrats are in power when things are bad, and republicans will benefit.
    I guess that's why the Dems are under orders not to talk about their accomplishments?...LOL This isn't just a cycle, it's a failed attempt at destroying the country.

    The state of the economy, not some localized issue over the siting of a Mosque, will be the leading driver of November's elections.

    Prof,

    It's real easy for people to dislike that which they don't fully understand. But as I said in a recent thread where a former Reagan appointee spoke out against some Conservative economic policies since Reagan was in office, I'm beginning to get a better understanding of some things that took place behind the scenes that helped shape not only our nation's foreign and domestic policies but also many of our social views as well. As has been said in this forum countless times, "If you repeat something often enough, the lie eventually becomes the truth."

    I've always been a firm believer that in order to discern what the truth really is, one must seek knowledge for himself. With so much information being thrown at us each and every day from so many sources, the only way to filter out the political "white-noise", IMO, is to take a step back and collect information from as many partician sources as possible and apply that knowledge based within its historical content. To this, I think many Americans are extremely confused and very misinformed concerning many of the politics of the day. So many things have been left undone in this country and we've all bought into the "lie" here or there. For me, what I "see" from the current Administration based on President Obama's agenda is a President who is brave enough and bold enough to tackle many of the issues that have been so widely ignored by prior Administrations that affect so many of us. We're all afraid of change; it's never popular when one is forced to move outside their comfort zone. Sometimes, those holding public office have a better understanding of the issues that affect the nation as a whole. From where I stand, it's about time someone began to take on more of the domestic issues that affect the People rather than be so focused on the foreign issues that seem to help only the Corporate political machine even if that aide first reaches across the oceans before focusing on the boundaries of our shores.

    Note: I want it to be clear that in my use of the term "white-noise", I am using it as a media metaphor not a racial slant by any means. In this case, I'm referring to the political "static" that comes at us from various directions much like the annoying sounds we hear when we lose the singal on our television or radio. If we can all filter out the political pundit "static," I think one can discern for himself what's truly happening within the political spectrum.
