Epic Fail: Obama's Numbers Worse Than Bush's

Sphere: Related Content

How can a man who had tons of good will, a massively compliant media, majorities in both the House and Senate and a huge organization pushing his agenda on a daily basis fail so suddenly and so definitively?

Epic fail:

A rather surprising finding from the newly released CNN poll. Question three on the national survey of 1,136 adults (which includes an oversample of African-Americans) asks, "Do you consider the first six months of the Obama administration to be a success or a failure?"

Thirty-seven percent (37%) said they believe the Obama administration is a "failure," while 51% consider it a "success" and 11% say it's still "too soon to tell."

An identical question was asked of the Bush administration in an August 2001 CNN/Gallup/USA Today survey. At the time, 56% said the Bush administration was a "success" while only 32% considered it a "failure."

I, of course, blame Bush as should you (not sure how but it's the default setting).

More to the point, I see this as a collective fuck you to socialism and socialist polcies by the American people. When you have nearly 10% nationally without jobs and without health insurance, one would think that it would be fertile ground to sow the seeds of socialized medicine and Obama and the Dems are struggling mightily getting any bill passed.

I can't wait for the mid-terms.
