onwards and upwards

Miami Herald: President Barack Obama has bounced back from his low point after November’s elections and enjoys stronger support heading into the 2012 election cycle, particularly against Sarah Palin, according to a McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll…

Obama’s fortunes appear to be rising along with the country’s. The poll found a jump in the number of people who think the country’s heading in the right direction…

…The president’s rating improved on several fronts, including job approval, how many like him personally and whether they think he’ll do better in the next two years. His strengthening appeal was most noticeable in how he matches up against three potential Republican rivals.

Today Obama would beat Mitt Romney by 51 to 38 percent … Mike Huckabee by a similar margin, 50-38 percent… And he’d crush Palin by 56-30 percent….

      Hiya Tally, I should have added the caption – here it is:

      President Barack Obama holds 3-D glasses while watching the Super Bowl game at a Super Bowl Party in the family theater of the White House, Feb. 1, 2009.

      Pittsburgh Steelers 27, Arizona Cardinals 23 – can’t remember who he was rooting for!

    If 2008 election cycle was bad, brace yourselves for 2012…. The Crazy, The Ugly would be unbearable. Unlike McCain who at least stuck to not using Rev.Wright….The New Crop of GOP POTUS wannabes are gonna out do each other on who could be more disrespectful.

    I for one would deem these reports reputable, when someone finally stops comparing my president’s ratings with that ignorant witch from Alaska. It is so damn insulting to him and all of his intelligent supporters. There is absolutely nothing she has that comes close to the qualities President Obama has. Parts of this country are really screwed.

      Word on the street is that Trouble is heading her way….Big Trouble, of her own making, and she will suffer consequences.
      I can honestly say I hope the consequences include a state issued orange jumpsuit and handcuffs.
      My hope is that “her heinous” will soon become but a dark blot on our collective history. I will forever, hold the MSM complicit in the damage she has wrecked on this country. Shameful, both Palin and the MSM.
