Is it time yet?

According to an AP article on the lastest Pew research poll, as published in the Miami Herald (just pointing out that that F-word station is in no way involved here), Obama's approval rating is down 5 points, his disapproval rating is up 9 points, and, more importantly, his disapproval rating among independents is up 13 points. People are mostly upset with him because they believe he is listening to the most liberal wing of the party instead of the moderate wing.
Does this mean it's ok to critique his performance yet, or is there some other arbitrary benchmark we have to wait on?

Also, big shock, the younger people are the more they want bigger government, party irrelevant...

  • I would guess that if the approval rating is down it is because people are very unhappy with the job he is doing. During the campaign he promised so many things and the one thing no one expected was that we would be trillions of dollars in debt by the stroke of his pen in under 100 days. Many expected a miracle worker and all they got was just a smooth talking politician.

  • You can critique all you want, oh, and you have. What is the point of asking?

  • You guys were on here bitching the day he became president and every day since. It's pretty obvious nothing we say will shut you up.

  • anon :23, if we shut up what would you have to respond to all day?

    and foreverb3 is right, people are starting to see that an Obama presidency isn't all roses. He says things that contradict statements he made just a couple of months ago, and is now considering utilizing policy that he flamed others for a few months ago too.

  • When the stock market recovers, he'll own it and stop calling it the mess he "inherited".

  • anon 8:46~~~~President Obama doesn't believe in the necessity or accuracy of the stock market. If and when it recovers he should have no boasting about it.
