    I'm sure we'll hear how Congress has an even lower approval from our lib defenders on here. So if you're gonna post that, create your own topic. This one is about Obama's plummeting approval ratings.

    Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it

    With numbers like that, he will never be re-elected.

    I think his legacy is secure. He has made his indelible mark on history, and it will be as a positive mark in U.S. maturity - its first black President, served two terms. The record will show the faced a weird little "movement" called the Tea Party, which caused the Republican Party to self immolate.

    He will be compared against his predecessers, and will be judged overall positively, not having any cloud over him saying "war criminal" that will always be the uncomfortable legacy of George W. Bush: there will always be those for whom he is an unprosecuted war criminal for his invasion of Iraq.

    Yep, as most "historians" are liberal, your narrative is almost assured to be the one that will go down into the history books.

    And yet, you all point to Obama as being "black" - he's not. He's as much "white" as he is "black" but that just detracts from the liberal message.

    Which makes it even more telling that Obama is screwing up royally, as only 37% approve of the way he's doing his job.

    True to form... the libs are so predictable (refer back to the OP).

    Please provide the source for the approval of Republicans being 3%. And please make sure it is for the entire Republican party and not just one particular segment of the government, as your statement clearly states that Republicans are at 3% approval.

    I've tried several times to access Southbeach...oops....franktats' source of information; but all I get is a blank page.

    Anyone else been able to load this source?

    Perhaps you should ask yourself WHY "most historians are liberal," as you put it. What is it about the process of scholarship that leads them to conclusions that would have you cast them as "liberal?" Is it the training to be objective, and sift facts from opinion?

    What "training to be objective, and sift facts from opinion?"

    Please cite evidence that historians are "trained to be objective, and sift facts from opinion." And cite it in your OWN topic about historians.

    Thanks.

    In the meantime... How about confining your comments to the actual topic, which is Obama's freefall in the job approval ratings, and not a discussion about historians.

    Thanks.

    Oh, so the genius not only has some hair-brained (or lack of both in his case) scheme that I am "south beach" but also, because the website at the link isn't working, he claims that the Obama 37% approval rating is "unsubstantiated."

    Yep, I made the whole thing up. There isn't a poll that was just released showing Obama's approval rating at 37%. You caught me in a lie. Pat yourself on the back (or on top of that head of yours).

    Hint for those who think Obama's approval rating at 37% is a lie.

    Google "Obama 37% AP-GFK"

    Southbeach/franktats, I must pay you a compliment.

    You are well versed in misquoting, fact twisting, taking words out of context and occasionally outright lying to support your "facts".

    Usually (but not always!) there is a tiny bit of truth in whatever you post here. Twisted around and perverted to prove your "facts", but still there.

    Hitler's propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, would be proud of your efforts.

    He might end up like Truman. Who knows. Truman was more unpopular than Obama and the GOP hated him, yet now he is their darling.

    I knew exactly what the article was in the link you sent. It plays up "Republicans getting blamed" and plays down the fact that Obama's approval has now sunk to 37%.

    Here in the USA, this is how "journalism" is done.

    Actually no, it didn't downplay Obama's rating at all. Why do you think that?

    As well, this is an AP link and article, the same AP that conducted the poll you were trying to link to in your fist post.

    "Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent."

    Oh yes, that's certainly downplaying. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Uhhh...7th paragraph is the one I just quoted. It's not downplaying.
    This is the same AP that did the poll - so you like the poll but not the article that goes with it. icon_rolleyes.gif
