    All I am saying is that if Obama is a failure now for whatever reason because his approval rating is at what it is at, then Reagan must have been a failure too for whatever reason because his approval rating was similar at this point.

    So answer me this.. was Reagan a failure at this point in his administration or not?
    Not true in any way. Just because they had the same rating doesnt mean both are failures.

    You cant just take what you see and ignore the reason behind it.

    You should start a new thread in the history section.

    See BS says only 46% approve of their Messiah's performance?

    I wonder what an honest poll would say, then?

    The Messiah ain't gonna be one of them.

    Reagan knew full well, and told us, that the implementation of his program was going to be painful. In the end, Reagan created an economy that spawned twenty two million mostly private sector jobs.

    The Messiah is spawning an economy that's going to keep losing jobs....because he's repeating "the mistakes of the past", ie, socialism, instead of repeating Reagan's policies of success, ie, capitalism.

    The Misery Index steadily declined while Reagan took office.

    The Misery Index is soaring under the Messiah.

    'nuff said.

    Post them then. And you should be flogging yourself for the revisionist crap since you're the one attempting the revision.



    No squawking about the experience though huh? Good move on your part.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Obama's Approval Rating Dips to New Low

    I think it's rather telling that Bush's poll numbers seemed to carry more weight with a lot of the left when his approval numbers went down. How many times did I see liberals calling Bush supporters "28 percenters" or "dead enders"? Funny how polls suddenly don't seem to matter as much when it's your ox being gored.
