    Since this is a CNN poll you know right off the bat it's weighted to the left. In reality Obama is probably under 50%.

    How about we turn those wind turbines on Cape Cod around to blow these winds back to Europe?

    In case you missed the Economist this month:

    Plus, we hear so much about the president not passing a budget....please just what budget are they talking about for 2011.
    "Spurred by a bloc of 87 largely conservative freshmen, they brought the federal government to the brink of a shutdown in April before Mr. Obama and Speaker John A. Boehner struck a deal to cut $38 billion out of the last six months of the 2011 fiscal year budget."
    Plus, the Rethugliklans managed to block the bulk of the $447 billion jobs bill...then you have morons complaining about no jobs. Get a clue!

    Forward!

    Guess the facts hurt the GOPs' lies. Using austerity measures, Britain, Greece and Spain experienced severe recession on their economy. Bet the people in these countries must be wishing they had President Obama as their president with more balanced economic, defense , education , healthcare and social policies. They may not be all perfect but definitely proven to be more effective and balanced ones than these countries', especially, considering the lack of cooperation from Congress. If the jobs bill had passed last year, job nos. would have been different. One man alone cannot do everything well. I think the President is one of the smartest and hardworking President ever and that is why US is in so much a better situation than many of its European Counterparts. He has both short term and long term plans which will reduce the deficit in a common sense and wise way , not sudden cut or austerity drive. He is also humble, opened to negotiations and compromise, if right for the country overall. Remember Britain, Greece and Spain!!! With the great debt and economic recession he inherited and with not much cooperation from the Congress since 2010, a lot has been achieved. He approved the stimulus in his first few months to help prevent more job losses and create jobs and tackled the Health care reform bill as it is one of the major components of the budget., costs escalating exponentially , adding to the deficit at a drastic rate and also, help more people to get healthcare coverage. Smart move.

    So, voters , please read independent fact checks on the Ads that you see or things you listen to(both sides,especially the GOP) . Make sure money cannot buy a Govt and get the Dems back in both Congress and Senate and reelect President Obama so that can reverse the law that allows for the Super Pac and outside Interests to contribute without disclosure and limits. This is essential core to run a democratic and fair election . Otherwise, the gap of poverty will widen to an extent that one day, peace in the country could be well disrupted by the very poor due to survival and lack of feeling of life having value and self respect, definitely not God's will or teachings.Cooperation and shared sacrifice is much needed to accelerate growth and quality of life for all.

      sooo how do you think the europeans think of obamas stiff arming by the Russians, Iranians, and Syrians? Do you really believe it makes them feel more secure? People I know in europe believe he is underqualified and an idiot. Problem is you and others like you buy into the media crafted obama...fact is he is a dismal failure at everything he has touched... and until the right began to put money in the game you types were perfectly happy to see obama with a billion dollar war chest.. The poverty rate is way up since obummer took office as is food stamps and the average American home owner has lost 40% of their net wealth...and there is much much more should you want to really LOOK AT THE FACTS.
