According to the LA Times, Barack Hussein Obama is at risk of becoming only the third U.S. president to slip below the Gallup 50% approval rating in his first year in office.
According to Gallup, Obama has reached this new low faster than his predecessors did. By comparison, George W. Bush didn’t fall below 50% approval rating until his third year in office. Bill Clinton dipped below 50% in his fourth month. Why the sudden slide for Obama? Because Kool Aid drinkers are finally waking up to the fact that they helped elect a radical socialist for president. Obama is finding out that many of his former supporters are now resistant to his bleak idea of Change.
Remember that Obama wanted a health care reform bill on his desk by the first week in August. He had no intentions on letting anyone read the bill — and he had every intention on ramming the bill through Congress the way he did with the massive porkulus spending bill.
Obama, who has spent more time away from the White House this month than in previous months, will extend his vacation another week. It seems that Obama’s approval ratings rise slightly when he’s not in the White House implementing policy.
