PRESIDENT OBAMA ... THE NEW REAGAN?
I like how Republicans point to President Obama's falling job approval ratings as evidence that the country is turning against him. What they need to do is take a look at President Reagan's numbers at a similar point in his presidency, and then compare him with President Obama.
The reality is that when America "turned" on Ronald Reagan the Republicans had no problem with it. In fact they believed Reagan needed to stay the course and deserved a second term ... even if that meant giving President Reagan more time to effectively triple our national debt.
Still, now that the public is giving President Obama the same approval numbers that they gave President Reagan at a similar point in his presidency, Republicans want everyone to believe that President Obama is losing America. I know it's beltway politics, but it shows that they want President Obama to fail, and will do anything to discredit him. Even if it means ignoring the political realities surrounding their hero, President Reagan.
