Some stats and polls from Rasmusen 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, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Barack Obama’s performance and 53% disapprove.
  • Only 8% of American voters give Congress good or excellent marks, and only 26% believe our nation is generally heading in the right direction.
  • For the fourth week in a row, a generic Republican candidate holds a slight advantage over Obama in a potential 2012 match-up. The unnamed Republican candidate earns 45% while Obama earns 43%.
  • The latest poll taken by likely GOP Primary voters shows that Mitt Romney is in the lead with 33%, Michele Bachmann is in second with 19%, and Herman Cain is in third with 10% of the vote.
  • Only 26% of Investors think the economy is getting better.
  • Just 47% see buying a home as a family’s best investment.
Michelle Obama, when asked about the foods she likes most, during a function in South Africa, was thinking way too out loud, as she started a long ramble ending with something to the effect of, “I can’t stop eating French fries. But eat your vegetables…”

I find as little humor in that as when her husband said something to the effect of, “Shovel-ready jobs weren't as shovel-ready as we thought,” and then chuckled about the comment afterward. This is what we are up against---not the Obama’s, themselves, so much as the large portion of the American population who finds the Obama’s jokes as funny as they do.

Regarding Congress and our situation in Libya, Hillary Clinton is asking a rhetorical “Whose side are you on”. There will be a big vote on Libya this Friday.

America is projected to fall to third place in trade soon, after India.

More joblessness this week.

1,199.4 miles to go.
