Forget about worrying that "you'll shoot your eye out" - it turns out that if you lie your ass off you're going to get stuck on a poll. Or so it would seem based on a new Washington Post/ABC poll which shows Barack Obama's approval rating at just 43%...the worst for any president in his 5th year since Nixon.
But Hope n' Change takes no particular pleasure in Barry's dismal approval numbers because we still can't figure out why they aren't lower. A lot lower.
Unless you're getting free money from the government (as so many are, by design), we can't think of any reason that anyone anywhere would approve of anything Obama is doing. Well, unless they're racists who refuse to judge a man by his words and deeds rather than his skin color. Or unless they're America-hating foreign powers building nuclear stockpiles.
Still, while the current lack-of-approval numbers aren't satisfactory, they may just be a start. Obamacare is already causing many of his former followers to turn against the president, and the real healthcare feces haven't even hit the fan yet (but will, on New Year's day).
After which, we triple dog dare any democrat to "run on Obamacare" in 2014.
TECHNICAL NOTE: On Thursday, Hope n' Change is switching Internet providers. Hopefully there won't be any disruption to Friday's post, but if there's a big bunch of nothing here on that day, don't worry about it. We'll be back ASAP.
