    Feel free to try substantively counter his argument that The Obama's numbers are in decline, denoting that He is in politcal trouble..

    Of course, if you agree that the above is true and that you only take issue with the reasons the author gives for that decline, you must then provide your own explanation for said decline.

    Given that you have yet to offer any substantive counteer to his argumewnt, all you're doing here is closing your eyes, holding your hands over your ears and yelling "I can't hear you!" as loud as you can.

    Re: Why is The Obama’s administration in trouble?

    The trend of Obama's approval ratings are par for the course historically



    Thus far in his presidency his approval ratings have almost perfectly mirrored Reagan's

    The reasons are the same as every other president. As the image of the candidate becomes the reality of the politician ratings slide.

    Why not? It is average Joe that votes for any given President, Congressman, etc etc. Obviously if they are considered valid enough to vote the people in that control this country then perhaps, maybe, what they say in some blog, newspaper, etc etc is valid also.

    It's ranting. To try to refute someone who so obviously is deeply entrenched in his own side is like digging in the sand. Any argument I make to refute his ranting has been made and made a thousand times before.

    I dont like POPs because of how they're deployed. A "random" sampling of people is taken and asked questions about an issue. They are easy to tip to the direction you want and dont account for the diversity that is the United States.

    I dont like people's opinions of complex topics because most individuals have an overly-simplistic view of the world and how it works. Most people have a very binary view of things and expect politicians to share that view. Many politicians realize the world is not arraigned thusly into neat lines of black and white but still have to pretend that it is to be elected. People become dissatisfied when what they see as a solution isnt taken and most often without considering that there may be a fundamental point that they are missing and that point may be what prevents leadership from making that choice.

    I believe very strongly in the ideals of democracy and I feel wholeheartedly that people should have a voice in how they live their lives. But I hesitate to put decisions in the hands of people who have no experience or education to make these decisions. It is the same hesitation I feel calling a barber in for a consult on a difficult brain surgery; the problem is far too delicate to simply thrust at people and expect them to reach a mature and educated decision at this point in our development. I believe that will change in the future, but for now I do not trust the average person to make rational decisions regarding politics.

    I picked all of the above but, when you campaign heavily on change and you do exactly what the Bush administration does, then you are going to have some problems with the people who voted for you.

    So in essence if a person doesn't have a degree in a certain matter then their opinion is worthless in that matter?

    Not necessarily. Im saying if someone has no experience with something, it'd be a bad idea to trust them with a decision or trust their opinion on it. It is possible to be a well-informed citizen without having a PHD.

    Degrees are worthless anyways.

    Oh wait... you already agreed that his argumenr is valid. I guess you;re out of luck.
    As I said-- just because someone is partisan doesnt make him wrong.
    And so, you yelling "I can't hear you" leaves the argument unchallenged.
