This afternoon’s heaping bowl of “Hope & Change”
Just 6 months into his administration and Obama has managed to serve almost everyone in America a hearty portion of his homemade delicacy, "Hope & Change." America has tasted it and they are starting to let the president know just how much they like it.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 28% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -12. That’s the lowest rating yet recorded for President Obama.
Forty-nine percent (49%) now say that America’s best days have come and gone. Just 38% believe they are still to come. Thirty-four percent (34%) say the country is heading in the right direction. Seventy-five percent (75%) want the Federal Reserve to be audited.

Overall, 48% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. That is the lowest level of total approval yet recorded for this President. Fifty-one percent (51%) now disapprove. A plurality of voters now believe the President views American society as unfair and discriminatory.
Obama has another 42 months in the kitchen, so the "Hope & Change" buffet will be open for quite a while longer.
My advice? Buy stock in Bayer Corporation, the makers of Alka-Seltzer.
