OK, so Obama is on a roll right now, but the 2012 election is still a year and a half away, and we still have very serious problems. Come election time, these serious issues are what will be dominating the political landscape, as the bin Laden kill fades into the sunset.WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama's approval rating has hit its highest point in two years — 60 percent — and more than half of Americans now say he deserves to be re-elected, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll taken after U.S. forces killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
I still don't plan to vote for Obama in 2012, as I believe that, under his leadership, America is going in a very wrong direction. However, I can't discount what he did with bin Laden. So, grudgingly, I have to say "Well done, Mr. President". I am not crazy about how this has bumped him up in the polls, but dammit, I have to put our country ahead of petty politics, so I am giving credit where credit is due. But, again, I say that the next election is still a year and a half away. At that time, Americans will be saying "What have you done for me lately". If Obama can't do for the economy what he did for getting rid of bin Laden, I say that he will be in serious trouble, and will be vulnerable. However, for the moment, I will let him bask in the popularity he has now. He deserves that.
