    Pretty impressive now that Congress is able to proceed with a Democratic agenda, it's approval rating has jumped substantially. (Might want to check out the other stories on the page too; some interesting stuff.)

    Taegan Goddard's Political Wire

    The latest Fox News poll finds 65% of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing, 16% disapprove and for 19% it is too soon to say.

    In addition, congressional approval increased significantly in the last two weeks with some 40% of Americans approving of the job Congress is doing, up from 23% just two weeks ago.

    They just got elected in, there's some afterglow for now - it will change, though. Especially when people realize they just spent almost 1 trillion dollars with little stimulus.

    Patters is the one who's ******* stupid if he thinks a poll means anything right now. They were voted in 2 months ago so of course the people who voted them in will like them - for now. Once they realize that the Democrats have now more than doubled the original bailout amount and that little of it it stimulative and most is just random spending they will change their minds.

    The fawning gushing slobbering fainting orgasm leg twitching love affair isn't over yet, the MSNBC bastards still p!ss their pants when they see a picture of Messiah but it won't be long before America realizes they now have a little Socialist Dictator sitting in the Oval Office.

    Many Racists in America have taken the Picture of Jesus down from where it hung over their bed and replaced it with a picture of Prince Barack Hussein Obama.

    Keith Olderman carry's a picture of Messiah in his wallet.

    Well, they haven't managed to bankrupt the country, or get us into a war.

    The country is already bankrupt and we are already at war. I don't see them fixing either problem. I rest my case.

    Guess you haven't heard about the "stimulus" bill the house passed.

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!!!! Is his point. Apparently even when he's out of office, some will still find a way to blame him for whatever bills are passed now.
