Just a reminder. President Bush’s (43) approval average during his second term was 37 percent, reaching a low point of 25 percent sometime during the fall of 2008, right around election time. The main stream press had totally and completely bought into the Bush Derangement Syndrome by mid-2006 when his approval rating was around 40 percent. The man was blamed for everything.
At what point does the main stream media start giving President Obama a hassle about his approval rating? Buried deep in an AP story from Oct. 9, we learn Obama’s approval rating is now at 37 percent. The same as Bush’s second term average.
Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent.
My question in the second paragraph is rhetoric, because we all know the main stream media will hold the water for this president and avoid comparing approval numbers to Bush 43 at all cost. That would be a fireable offense for certain.
