What’s not to like about Obama’s second term? Obamacare, the destruction of the middle class, immigration nightmares, and about half a dozen wars (new and old) flaring up all over the place.
Nearly 80% of Americans have lost faith in the American political system, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll. Despite record highs in stocks (and consumer confidence?) – and a President proclaiming that as victory – 60% of Americans are dissatisfied with the economy and 70% believe the nation is heading in the wrong direction. Who is to blame for this? President Obama’s overall approval rating has collapsed to a new low at 40%, with only 42% approving of his handling of the economy. “Americans are cranky, unhappy… It is with everything going on the world,” and 57% are pissed off enough to carry a protest sign. But don’t worry, as President Obama has reiterated during his tenure, he “will not rest…”
I guess it comes as no surprise that Obama’s approval rating is in the toilet, as it deserves to be. He can at least take some consolation…he does have a higher approval rating than Vladimir Putin.

One thing Obama seems to be really good at…GOLF:
