I guess the 73% who disapproved of "Dubya" must have been ignorant as well huh

Obama Approval Rating Reaches Three-Year High In Poll
Other surveys also show Obama faring well with the public -- his approval rating is 52 percent among along Americans in the Gallup tracking poll, and 54 percent in the Rasmussen tracking poll.
Oh wow. Where was the poll taken, in the west wing of the Out House.

Is that why Obama's approval is already dropping?

Yes, and Obama has done it for four years. He owns the debt and the disaster, and his Volt is about ready to drive of his manufactured cliff.

It's more than one thing. It's a combination of the end of Bush's poorly-thought-out tax cuts and the package of spending cuts agreed to by both parties as a doomsday device during the idiotic showdown over the debt ceiling a year or so ago.

It's not "prudent" during recovery from recession to increase taxes on everyone while massively cutting spending. In fact, it's kind of dangerous to do that.

Recession - occurred during Bush's second term.

Deficit-inducing tax cuts - enacted during Bush's first term.

Why pretend Bush had nothing to do with it? You guys still blame CLINTON for everything you don't blame on Obama...

The Republicans will not see the inside of the White House in '16 if they go with Rubio. The Dems will tear him to shreds--and rightfully so--on his belief anti-science beliefs.

Ryan? He looks too much like Eddy Munster. And besides, the economy will be doing much better by then and the Dems will claim responsiblity for it--again, rightfully so.

So you admit it; our current mess is attributable to Bush. And to fix it you lament that a Republican didn't get elected. Have you learned nothing?

You may be correct in assessing that today's Americans dont' measure up to previous generations and have abandoned all of the values and standards which made America great. Maybe Americans are as pitiful as you believe us to be after Obama was re-elected. So sad.

No, it's todays teabag frightwingnuts that don't measure up. McCarthy died along time ago. Try as you might, you're not going to resurrect him.

The good old days that you yearn for were not so good for most folks. We were less educated, worked longer hours at more physically demanding and dangerous jobs, and had crappier cars. We didn't know better. We've evolved a bit since then and thanks to that we were able to see through the Republican veneer of patriotism and good times to their message of hate.

The GOP thinks that by running Rubio they'll automatically secure lots of Latino votes. They will be mistaken. Latinos aren't stupid. They want their kids to succeed (and speak two languages) and they know that a guy who believes that the world is only 10k years ago isn't a good role model. Rubio will also not be enough to erase the long Republican history of hate, bigotry, discrimination, white supremacy and irrationality. What Republicans simply don't get is that courting Latinos and minorities is like the KKK courting blacks. Tea baggers shot Republicans in the foot and they blame everyone except themselves for it.
