Obama Re-Elect Number Drops Below 50%

Allah finds a little silver lining here for Obama-- the public is getting even more patient, not less, when it comes to expecting positive results on the economy in Obama's first term. (This gets reported as "the first two years" for some reason; I have mentioned it to Allah, and he says the quirk in wording is in the poll itself.)

I suppose.

I'd be curious to know if that question was asked about previous presidents, like, say Bush. What I'm suggesting is that the question immediately, by design, asks people to re-evaluate whether or not they feel they have the right to ask for results, or are just being crankypants.

The sort of "are you being a little bitch or what?" nature of the question may mean that the re-elect figure is closer to right whereas these numbers are people just saying, "oh, of course, it's totally unfair of me to expect this guy to perform as he promised, my bad."

But either way: The Republican Party has to begin assigning blame here. Constantly. Effectively. Almost robotically.

To the extent the public gives Obama a pass -- which could result in his reelection -- it's because his opposition isn't hammering him on his own culpability here.

If the opposition permits the President to say "It's not my fault, these things just happen," then the public will believe that, and Obama will be reelected.


A-- Always




Always be assigning blame. Always be assigning blame.
