Some stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 23% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 38% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –15.
  • Overall, 48% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Barack Obama’s performance and 51% disapprove.
  • Generic Republican candidate: 45%; Obama: 42%.
  • Only 24% say they share Obama’s political views.
Robert Gates, appointed by Bush, is out. He blasted NATO, pointing out how futile, pointless, and expensive the organization was. Good for him. Not good for conservatives, though.

Leon Panetta appears to be the man to fill Gates’ shoes. An Obama-appointed Secretary of Defense. If you feel like putting this guy in your google machine, then go for it, but you already know where he stands. I had never heard of him but he has a big spot to fill. Knowing that it falls upon Obama to appoint someone to this important position, I had every expectation that Panetta would be…not even going to say anything.

Secretary of Defense. Use your imagination. Think about what organizations an Obama-appointee of this scale would belong to. Picture what ideas a man is required to have to fill such a spot at the request of Barack Obama.

1,232.5 miles to go.
