This Wasn't Supposed To Happen

The thrill is gone. Well, going:
Poll: Less faith in Obama's economic abilities
By Susan Page, USA TODAY

Washington — Qualms about President Obama's stewardship of the economy are growing, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, as Americans become more pessimistic about when they predict the recession will end.

At six months in office, Obama's 55% approval rating puts him 10th among the 12 post-World War II presidents at this point in their tenures.

The findings forecast the rough patch that probably is ahead for Obama if unemployment continues to increase, as the administration predicts. [link]
In response to his plummeting approval numbers, Mr. Wonderful has scheduled another press conference in which he'll try to work some of that hopey changey stuff on us again.

It doesn't seem to be working though.

Maybe Obama should try something else. Like giving up on the socialism thing.
