Secondly, Obama's policies haven't even had a chance to have an effect on the economy... positively or negatively. The idea that you think his policies have made the economy worse in the last three months is laughable. Everyone with half of a brain knew that the economy was going to get worse (probably a lot worse) before it would even have the opportunity to get better.

Then again, I should have guessed that someone that honestly puts a show like Dexter on par with The Wire would also have a faulty take on the nature of politics.

Sorry, misspoke. His disapproval rating is really high at this time in office at 28%, much higher than the average of president at this time in the White House (16%).

His plans are spending, and it is idiotic in this economic climate. Everyone did know the we were going to get worse before we got better, no denying that. But c'mon, all the bailouts and the stimulus package? Are you kidding me? ****ing ridiculous, and liberals like you can do nothing but defend **** like that so far by saying, "It's still early, give it time." All liberals want to do is spend, and with the economy the way it is, we can't afford it right now. Even when Clinton was President he leaned more towards the middle when it comes to the economy. The only positive thing he's done thus far is stop the raids on medicinal marijuana. **** Hussien Obama, it's all snowballing form here gentlemen.
