I guess not everyone thinks like you do.
    So, you think everything was going well before Obama took office? Housing prices had already plummeted. Unemployment was rising exponentially (from about 4.2% to 7.6%), and the stock market, after losing nearly 6,000 pts., was in the tank. The economy had actually been on a downhill slide since 2005, gaining momentum as it went. Obama inherited the worst economy since the great depression, and you think he should have been able to turn it all around in 8 months? Thatís pretty unrealistic.

    The reality is it usually takes longer to fix things than it does to break them. Some of the things Obama is trying are going to work, and some are not. Thatís just the way it is. There are not set rules or quick fixes for fixing an economy on the verge of collapse. If there were, it would have already happened. Even some of the most highly regarded economist in the world canít agree on how to fix this mess. I may not agree with everything Obama has done so far, but I do believe he is trying. Only time will tell if heís right.

    Good Lord, talk about reinventing history. Take a look at the DJIA, the bottom was March 6, 2009. It fell off the cliff in 2008, when your hero was still president. It's up almost 30% since March.

    THe economy failing was caused by multiple cycles collapsing at once... Usually they only line up once every 70 years. Innovation is the only way out, which higher taxes will prevent.

    As a followup on the President's speech. Two local school districts decided not to show the speech (both Republican controlled). In one, the school board is now under major fire. It has repeatedly allowed local Republicans to come into the schools and make presentations to the students without screening, but decided not to show the Obama speech. Initial statements suggested concern about the potential political content of the speech. Now, amid calls for a recall election, they are saying that they would have shown it but that they lacked the technology to rebroadcast an internet based speech to classrooms and were not aware the speech was also available on cable. For what it's worth, almost every school district that decided to go ahead and broadcast the speech is also Republican controlled.

    They did not show it to my daughters class yesterday. We were at a birthday party last night, about half the kids saw it and about half the kids didn't. So, I imagine they left it up to the teachers.

    How are you figuring that? If you want to look at quick slides in approval ratings, I think Gerald Ford might hold the record, going from 71% to 37% over a 7 month period, for an average slide of 4.86 percentage points/month. Obama has gone from 69% to 50% over 7 months, so that's 2.71 points per month. Looks like Gerald's got him beat! G.H.W. Bush also has him beat, with his approval rating declining by an average of 3.53 percentage points/month between his zenith and nadir. You neglected to mention that G.H.W. Bush is tied with Truman for the largest difference between a President's highest and lowest approval rating. It took more than 5 years for Harry's approval ratings to drop from their highest to lowest point, so he's not even in the running for top honors.

    If you want to know which Presidents since 1937 have had the lowest single approval rating, they would be Truman (22%), Nixon (24%), and G.W. Bush (25%).

    I believe that approval ratings are pretty much useless. They are driven more by the media and idiots who believe everything they watch on the dummy box than educated people who give a crap. Not to mention, you can get whatever ratings you want based on who and where you sample.

    I find it hard to believe that the messiah's ratings will ever get into the 20% range, largely due to ignorance of his supporters and the MSM bias.

    Do you mean the "educated people" that watch or listen to Limbaugh, Beck or Hannity?

    Pot stirrer...No need to answer you. Re read the bold part. NO TV is 100% truth.

    It will be difficult for the media to have much negative influence on Obama's poll numbers when you have 1 right wing station versus 2,375 liberal stations in a liberal world.

    And how long had Frank and Dodd, et al, been manipulating Fannie and Freddie per the policies that were formulated in the Slick Willie administration?

    Talk about chickens coming home to roost.

    The thing that really bothers me is why the hell was Bush signing irresponsible legislation coming from a Democratic congress?

    It was the Bush admin but far from republican/conservative legislation.
