Obama's approval rating rises postelection

A month after the bitterly fought election, President Barack Obama has his highest approval ratings since the killing of Osama bin Laden, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll, and more Americans now say the nation is heading in the right direction than at any time since the start of his first term.

Obama's approval rating stands at 57 percent, the highest since May 2011, when U.S. Navy SEALs killed the terror leader, and up 5 percentage points from before the election. And 42 percent say the country is on the right track, up from 35 percent in January 2009.

A majority think it's likely that the president will be able to improve the economy in his second term.

I think the reason these idiots think that he'll improve the economy is because the AP and all of the other liberal mainstream media outlets are "telling" them he can.

Bush saw a post re-election bump, too. http://www.gallup.com/poll/116500/pr...orge-bush.aspx

I'm anxious to see how low Barry's approval rating will go by the time he leaves.

Bill O'Reilly: What the heck is President Obama doing?

"...The President is basically saying "I'm not going to cut much. And blank you if you don't like it...
...I don't think President Obama expects the Republicans to cave. He wants them to oppose believing the American people will become angry with the GOP. It's a political strategy that is putting the entire country at risk.

How could they see that 'cliff ahead'? We're talking about a massive number of Americans who have never risked anything, never faced losses, never knew anything about consequences for their actions.. they have been raised, nurtured, in a bubble.

Only folks who had faced loss of some magnitude could have concern about something like a 'fiscal cliff'.... or electing a nasty child as president.

This is just wishful hoping and telling themselves everything will be fine like always.
The last Hurrah so to speak.
As the old salesman tactic goes, the fear of loss is far greater then the wish for gain.
