Okay. Yes! I admit it! The Sean Hannitys and Rush Limbaughs of conservative talk radio have been getting to me. Slowly. Like chinese water torture. Getting under my skin. Limbaugh repeatedly, daily expresses his desire for Obama to "FAIL". (Limbaugh: "I want Obama to fail!" -- Limbaugh also says FDR's "New Deal" was a failure. According to Rush, only unadulterated capitalism succeeds) YouTube - "I Want OBAMA to FAIL !" : RUSH LIMBAUGH | CPAC Convention 2009 Sean Hannity has no problem calling Barack Obama the worst president in american history (even though the guy's been in office for six weeks). Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh continue to suggest that President Obama is to blame for the decline in the stock market, referring to the state of the stock market as an "Obama recession." Fringe conservatives are yelling in a vacuum. There is no center to the republican party. No laws of gravitation are operating. They're spinning & in a state of free-fall. Despite this. A new poll today. -------------------- Poll: Obama's rating at all-time high NBC News March 3, 2009 WASHINGTON - After Barack Obama's first six weeks as president, the American public's attitudes about the two political parties couldn't be more different, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds. Despite the country's struggling economy and vocal opposition to some of his policies, President Obama's favoribility rating is at an all-time high. Two-thirds feel hopeful about his leadership and six in 10 approve of the job he's doing in the White House. "What is amazing here is how much political capital Obama has spent in the first six weeks," said Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff. "And against that, he stands at the end of this six weeks with as much or more capital in the bank." By comparison, the Republican Party - which resisted Obama's recently passed stimulus plan and has criticized the spending in his budget - finds its favoriblity at an all-time low. It also receives most of the blame for the current partisanship in Washington and trails the Democrats by nearly 30 percentage points on the question of which party could best lead the nation out of recession.
