You can't blame the president for the GOP opposition against everything to help our economy. I think he is doing a good job considering the crap he is getting from them after only ONE MONTH! they couldn't even give Obama a month to help Americans. SHAMEFUL
Let me ask who all has read all of the stimulus package? Read it and then tell me what you think about our politicians.
ASH your opinion does not count since you are not human.
Instead of a jesus ad against the stimulus bill we should have a taliban ad supporting the rethugs.
NEW NATIONAL POLL REVEALS THAT CNN DOES TO MANY POLLS.
100% agree with this statement, a majority doesn't care what CNN thinks, and an insignificant percentage hardly worth mentioning listen to Limpbone, Insanity, O'Reviley, Ingrateham, Coultergeist, Glum Blech, Mulchin and their ilke, then post their "talking points" from the previous night's broadcast like preprogrammed, mindless, little amoebas without a single, original thought of their own.
I am a simple man and so far I see only this; WE, the people, had been cheated , our trust and money continues to be abused, the perpetrators still at large, and this CORRUPTED PRESENT ADMINISTRATION IS MORE OF THE SAME PERPETUATING WHAT THEY STARTED.
I do not not even an iota of confidence on this government which is moving this land of ours to complete oblivion,...but I saw it coming, and although alot of people PRETEND is not happening they very well know it is happening, indeed.
67% approval is still really good but I am sure it is not correct. CNN's polling was off in the last election and my guess is that it is really closer to 60%.
I found this and I agree with it;
1, The American people elect a black president with a total of 42 days experience as a U S Senator from the most politically corrupt state in America whose governor is ousted from office. The President’s first official act is to close Gitmo and make sure terrorists civil rights are not violated.
2, The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm a black Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists.
3, The CIA Boss, Leon Panetta with absolutely no experience, has a daughter Linda we find out, that is a true radical anti-American activist who is a supporter of all the Anti-American regimes in the western hemisphere.
4. We got the most corrupt female in America as Secretary of State; bought and paid for.
5. We got a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary who files his own taxes.
6. A Commerce Secretary nominee who withdrew due to corruption charges.
7. A Tax cheat nominee for Chief Performance Officer who withdrew under charges.
8. A Labor Secy nominee who withdrew under charges of unethical conduct.
9. A Secy HHS nominee who withdrew under charges of cheating on his taxes.
And that’s just the fist four weeks. . . but who’s counting.
America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges ~ Barrack, Nancy, and Harry ~ and they are still trying to define stimulus.
Stimulus is where the government gives a smidgen of your tax dollars back to you making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated] that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV and go home and watch Telemundo!
That just about covers it
It is plain craziness to think that those of us who have paid our mortages as we agreed should now pay for those who aren't paying their mortgages. After all, the value of our properties have decreased in the past year, too. Why should the non-payers be protected by the government when they aren't helping the payers as well?
It is only the Blacks who keep saying Obama is wonderful, because they still believe he is going to give them stuff.
So basically, the numbers are the same as President Obama had in January, well within in the +/- 3% margin of error (67% approval rating now vs. 69% in January). This seems much to do about nothing from sensationalized media (also see Fox "News" even more negative headline). Give me a break.
Keep up the good work, President Obama. You still have my support, along with most Americans.
Not surprising. Republicans will hate, as they are the party of division.
Can someone show me where the Change is? War continues, the economy worsens but "Earth and Fire" is playing in the White House for the benefit of the occupants-–
Oh, oh, the sky is falling and we must tell the king! One month and the magician has not yet pulled the rabbit out of the hat. Give me a break!!!!
polls are all fixed. the people paying for the poll tell the pollsters what to ask. pollsters then adjust the questions to gte the answers that they were paid to get.
polling is a scam!
It's good to see a President with high ratings.....its been 8 years a commin!!
Just think where we'd all be if McCain was our President. Shudder!
Its just whites who no longer like him because they think he is going to give us stuff.
I sure am glad My boss does not evaluate me after being on the job 30 days, we at least get a year before they give us a yea or nea.
So What!!!! All I care about is whether our country will get unemployed people back to work! Ratings mean nothing to me! Noting! Nada! Ziltch! Zero! Pres Obama hasn't unpacked yet. Give the Man a Chance will ya?? Its a good thing he keeps a level head and does not allow himself to bow to the pressure of a negative media.
Keeping going Mr. President!
Right brainers mature faster then the left brainers. The poll is biased.
