    Obama's Approval Rating Dips to New Low

    Obama's Approval Rating Dips to New Low - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    President Obama's job approval rating has fallen to 46 percent, according to a new CBS News poll.

    That rating is Mr. Obama's lowest yet in CBS News polling, and the poll marks the first time his approval rating has fallen below the 50 percent mark. Forty-one percent now say they disapprove of Mr. Obama's performance as president.

    In last month's CBS News poll, 50 percent of Americans approved of how the president was handling his job, while thirty-nine percent disapproved.
    O'Failure.

    We told the libs, but they voted for him anyway.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I've been saying that all along.

    Not just the libs...they were the sheep counted on and they came through. Many more of the clueless independents and those pretending partisanship voted for this guy, he was wildly popular and received more votes for President than any man in history.

    We told independents and fence sitters as well, they are just as much if not more to blame here. The Libs were a known entity, we knew the anti-Bush kneejerks would vote Obama....those who came to this decision, who were impressed by his teleprompter reading, those that didn't do their homework and really didn't study this man they were voting into Office...they shoulder this burden.

    Obama sets a new low
    I predict that he will do it again as even more folks realize that his "solutions" are making things worse...

    You base Obama's presidency on past president's ratings?
    Obama is Obama. His name is not Reagan or Bush Jr. You cannot justify his failures by pointing out past apparent failures turned successes.

    No I am not. I am just pointing out that if these ratings matter in anyway then some comparison to previous presidents must be in order. And considering Reagan at this point had similar numbers then one must draw the conclusion that if Obama is a failure now, then Reagan was a failure then.

    Said it once and I'll say it again. OBAMA IS NOT REAGAN OR BUSH JR. or Kyle or Joey or Freddy or anyone else. He is Obama. His rating is his. His policies are not Reagans. They are his. Reagan has nothing to do with it. People disliking the early Reagan admin. does not mean that his and Obamas admin. have anything in common. People are different now than they were then. Maybe not for the better but that is irrelevant.
