President Obama's declining ratings have more to do with disappointed Democrats. Blue Dog conservative Democrats are self destructive enough, but what we didn't expect to get was a compromiser and centrist as president. What we wanted to see was an FDR like force. Guess I wasn't the only one with high expectations.
While Republicans have marketed Obama as a left wing socialist, nothing could be further from the truth. It just proves how effective advertising can be.
By the way, I don't recall anyone asking questions like this at any Bush town halls, especially about borrowed spending and low job creation.
