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.


Rasmussen - Thursday, July 30, 2009

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.
