Do you agree with this Article? 2010 ~ "Obama's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year"

WASHINGTON POST -- Barack Obama's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year got off to a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad start.

There he was, on New Year's Day, on vacation with his family in Hawaii, stuck on a secure phone with counterterrorism officials, trying to figure out what screw-ups had allowed a would-be terrorist to board a Christmas Day flight with explosives in his underwear. Things only got worse for Obama when he returned to Washington in between a pair of epic winter storms. From the start, 2010 delivered a string of setbacks that built up to an electoral shellacking come November, to use the president's own word.

    If you look at this site, you see that all former presidents have had a rough time around this part of their presidency. It happens.

  • This is a handy dandy little Presidential Approval Tracker--where you can compare 2 - 12 presidents (from Truman to Obama) and how they measured up according to GALLUP throughout their ENTIRE respective presidencies! :o)  (Click on the "comparison" tab to enable this feature.)
