A recent poll of the president's approval numbers showed a double-digit drop from just a few weeks ago, owing to soaring unemployment rates, expanding deficits, the failure of the "stimulus," lack of presidential support for allies or freedom fighters, and unceasing criticism of the President's policies by media powerhouse Hope n' Change Cartoons.
Okay, the poll didn't really mention Hope n' Change, but we can dream...
It's been almost two years since this cartoon ran, and since that time Barack Hussein Obama has stayed busy doing great things for America to build his popularity. He successfully closed Guantanamo...won the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya...balanced the budget...brought down healthcare costs with Obamacare while adding 30 million uninsured to the system (without adding a dime to the deficit!)...brought unemployment down to historic lows...ended racial tension in the United States...strengthened our nation's ties to important allies like England and Israel...shared his entirely authentic birth certificate with the world...and personally created the "Drill, Baby, Drill" campaign which has brought the price of gasoline down to $1.29 per gallon.
Oh wait! He hasn't remotely done any of those things...or even tried to! Which is why current approval polls show Obama at his lowest ratings ever.
It seems that the more people get to know Barack Obama, the fewer there are who actually like him or his policies. Including, presumably, Bo the Whitehouse dog...who now refuses to appear in photos with Obama out of fear that it could hurt his political chances of someday being Hillary Clinton's dog.
