The Washington Post-ABC News survey found that less that half of Americans — 49 percent — say they believe the president will make the right decisions for the country. That's down from 60 percent at the 100-day mark of the Obama presidency.
The poll published Friday says Obama's overall approval is 57 percent, 12 points lower than it was at its peak in April. Fifty-three percent disapprove of the way he's handling the budget deficit and his approval on health care continues to deteriorate.I think some of this might be due to Obama's overexposure. I was watching a cable news show about new digital photo advertising that they were putting in an upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. Just as I was getting into it it cut off mid story. Of course it was "breaking news" about Obama from the Rose Garden shilling for ObamaCare or who knows what. I immediately changed the channel.
I'm at the point now that I cannot even go to the comic store without seeing Obama staring back at me from some comic or another. I think for this whole vacation week coming up he should have total radio and TV silence unless a major crisis develops. He needs to get out of the public eye for a while just so we can actually care about things he says again.
