    Obama's approval rating indicates that most Americans do not blame him for the poor economy or the current "state of the nation." And why should they? He's only been in office a few months.

    However, these numbers do not bode well for the majority party during the Congressional midterms. Most Americans will be far less forgiving of Congressional Democrats because they've controlled Congress for the past 6 years now.

    Jimmy Carter was not a complete failure. He did have one sterling accomplishment. His administration was so utterly abysmal that it ushered in a new era of classical liberalism and one of this nation's greatest Presidents: Ronald Reagan.:p:

    In the eyes of most Americans at that time Yes Jimmy Carter was a complete and utter failure. Gas line for miles, odd and even days to get gas, Hostages in Iran that lasted for what a couple of years? Letting Castro empty his prison and sending them to Miami for us to deal with? and that is not even getting into double digit inflation and even higher unemployment than we see today

    And Ronny had a 60% approval rating.

    Not sure if anything can be taken so early into a presidency.

    Clearly Carter went down and Ronny went up.

    It'll be Oct of 2012, one month before the next Presidential election, and they'll STILL be saying "it's not his fault, he's only been in office 4 years".

    Then, come October of 2016, they'll be saying what a great President he was after all the catastrophe's yet to become reality, because "nothing was his fault, he was only if office 8 years".

    He "inherited" all his own failures which, at this rate, should be monumental.

    Is this New Math? The Dems have controlled Congress only since 2006.

    Alright. Fine by me.

    By the 2010 midterms, the Democrats will have controlled Congress for 4 years rather than 6. I doubt the two fewer years will make much difference in the minds of most Americans. They'll still be seeking changing.

    Reagan had a 67% approval rating with a 16% disapproval when he took office.

    George W. Bush stood at 62 percent in a CNN/USA Today Gallup poll in April 2001, Bill Clinton was at 55 percent in a CNN/USA Today Gallup poll in April 1993, George H.W. Bush stood at 58 percent in a Gallup poll from April 1989, and Ronald Reagan was at 67 percent in a Gallup poll taken in April 1981.

    Lets put it like this, under Pelosi it feels more than 10, and you have to admit, the Dems could have found a much better candidate to fit the bill.
