What the approval drop means for Obama

(CNN) - Since President Obama seems to be a reflective soul, he must be reflecting on the irony of his latest predicament: as the man who came into office promising to change everything and who instead seems to have let much of what he promised to fix only get worse.

First, the good news: Slowly but surely, the economy is coming back. And that's no small feat, given where it was in 2009.

    "But FOUR YEARS LATER the economy still stinks and unemployment is still through the roof. "

    And what legislation has the GOP/Teatroll House enacted since 2010 that would address that situation? Was it the repeated attempts to defund the Planned Parenthood or to give religious entities special rights to obstruct women's access to abortion and contraception? Maybe the 37 symbolic attempts to repeal or defund the ACA? They manufactured their own talking points BY DOING NOTHING...and you just parrot them because you're unwilling to think critically about it.

    "Of course, he isn't REALLY serious. Small arms against sarin gas, is like using slingshots against Goliath."
    Hey, genius, you do know how that story ends, don't you? Haha....you just can't help yourselves....

    Sniffit the atheist now uses the bible to defend Obama?! I have now seen and heard it all!"

    1. Whether one is agnostic, atheist, deist, deeply religious, etc., has nothing to do with whether one has read and is familiar with the contents of the Bible.

    2. I wasn't using it to defend Obama. I was pointing out that the person who posted that analogy had used it 100% wrong, because he was trying to indicate that small arms was a futile gesture....and David felled Goliath with but one stone from his sling and then cut the dude's head off.
