    The averages of all polls posted at RealClearPolitics.Com have proven to be the most reliable --

    Why has something changed? He is performing worse today than he was in 2009. I realize he planned, organized and loaded the weapons and remotely fired the shots that killed bin laden, but the economy is still tanking under his watch and gas is over $4.00 a gallon.

    They will still be in the tank because the economy still sucks. He will get a little bump for a week or two then right back in the toilet. Besides, the only polls that matter are taken in November, 2012.

    Interesting. There are those on the left who accuse the Republicans of destroying America and the middle class.

    Strictly observing the politics of it all ... Obama & those in his administration would have been the only ones who knew about the Pakistan op when the birth certificate was released.

    Someone mentioned that the man is very politically savvy. So, the birth certificate is released just before this op comes down.

    Truly, I think that Trump's big wind about the birth certificate was just making him look foolish when there were real issues to discuss, so I don't think that Trump was the real mover on the birth certificate.

    Then, both of those events coincided with Obama's official launch of his election campaign.

    Taking nothing away from finally getting UBL out of the picture, bringing all 3 events together at the same time definitely is going to raise his poll ratings.

    I'm betting that troops start coming home from Af'stan right around summer 2012. Any R that runs against him under those circumstances will be doomed ... and it could mean a repeat of 2009-2010 with D's controlling both houses of Congress & the WH.

    Imagine what Osama's hard drives might hold. There could be a lot of heads getting busted. I bet they are scattering right now like cockroaches when the lights come on.

    Buzz, I'd be thinking that BHO will announce troops returning during that summer no matter what is going on over there.

    Looking at political savviness again, the political strategists may have brought the three mentioned events together to offset the negative impact of the Libyan situation.

    It's started---------------------

    Less than 48 hours after President Barack Obama announced the death of the man who orchestrated the 9/11 attacks, one new poll shows the president’s approval rating has jumped up by nine points, with Americans’ opinions of his handling of terrorism reaching the highest point during Obama’s presidency.
    The overnight poll, conducted by The Washington Post and the Pew Research Center, found that 56 percent of respondents approve of Obama’s performance as president, up nine points from similar polls last month. That boost includes a substantial bump of 10 points among independents

    In the Post-Pew poll, 69 percent of respondents said that they approve of Obama’s handling of the threat of terrorism, the highest rating since he became president in 2009. And more than three-quarters of Americans believe that Obama deserves credit for bin Laden’s death, with 35 percent saying he should get “a great deal” of credit for the terrorist leader’s killing.
