“You are finished in 2012, and you will be a one-term president.”

That sounds like commitment and assertion. That is putting yourself out there. That is not being coy, dodgy or comfortably floating along. But who said it?

If you watched the debate tonight then you know that was Michele Bachmann. I like her moxie and her determination. Barack Obama has that same quality except that his courage and drive has landed us…here, for lack of a better term, after nearly three years.

It’s starting. Can you hear the engine revving? It’s going to be a rollercoaster as we edge toward the one-year marker leading up to the election. Some candidates will drop out and others will emerge to the surface. We are still far off, but I cannot wait to see a debate between Barack Obama and whoever Someone Else is going to be. There is so much material to scrutinize. It hasn’t even been three years and this race will be that much more engaging in one more year from now.

Along those lines of Barack Obama being a one-term president, here is a continuation of his ever-plummeting approval numbers and polls from a growingly discontent America. Stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 21% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 43% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of -22.
  • That matches the lowest Approval Index rating for the president in 2011. Forty-one percent (41%) of Democrats strongly approve while 76% of Republicans strongly disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either political party, 16% strongly approve and 43% strongly disapprove.
  • Overall, 43% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Barack Obama’s performance and 56% disapprove.
  • Only 16% of Americans believe the country is generally heading in the right direction.
  • Among American voters 54% favor repeal of the health care law.
1,050.7 miles to go.
