With that being said, am I the only one to think that Obama has already failed?
Not at all, that one, millions of Americans (extreme right Republican base) knew Obama had failed even before he took office. So you are not the only one, you are in good company.
Regardless, his approval ratings are sinking faster then the Republican Party
Obama’s approval ratings are comparable to where Bush and Clinton were at this point in their presidency (Obama may even be higher than Clinton). And that by itself is an astounding achievement.
When Bush came to power in Jan 1993, the economy was roaring ahead, the country was in great shape, thanks to Clinton. All Bush had to do was ride the wave of prosperity and take credit for it.
When Obama took office, economy was in the toilet, thanks to Bush, with a real possibility of depression staring the whole world in face. Even now, while economy has improved thanks to Obama’s efforts, the economic conditions are still very difficult.
So in these difficult economic times, Obama’s popularity is comparable to where Bush was, in extremely favorable economic times, when unemployment was low, there was a healthy budget surplus (Bush had not yet blown it all away on the tax cuts for the rich).
So the fact that Obama’s approval is comparable to that of Bush at this point in presidency is a huge accomplishment on the part of Obama.
and I look forward to seeing someone else in the White House come 2012. Unfortunately, Bush cannot serve a 3rd term
Sure Bush can, there is Jeb Bush. After he has served eight years, why I assume you could get one of the Bush daughters to continue the Bush dynasty.
Besides, what is wrong with Joan of Ark? I though she was going to be the Saviour of USA (And the whole world). Obama has transformed USA into practically a third world country (with unemployment of 25% and inflation of 20%) and Joan of Ark will make it the greatest country in the world, with unemployment of 0.1%, inflation 0.5%.
So it could be Joan of Ark, it could be Jeb Bush, as long as you have a Republican in the White House, it is paradise in USA, Heaven in earth. So what is the problem?
