      20% think he's a cactus - http://www.theonion.com/articles/poll-1 … tus,18127/

      It's because he's a cactus that I think he should be re-elected.

      Well you’re 50% right for half of the statement. 50% of the time The Pres is not playing politics with his agenda, he is just trying to ram it down our throats, the other 50% of the time its nothing but party politics.

      Yet 100% of the time he thinks he is doing the right thing…but not many agree that what he thinks is right.

      Therefore only 38% want him back in office, a evaluation that is consistent with the last report in the National Adult Literacy Study, by the US Department of Education in 2003, which indicates that between 65% and 85% of adults within voting age were literate. The 20% disparity in the range was due to the choice of basic, minimal competence quantile chosen in the studies.

      In choosing the highest limiting parameters,(65%) meaning the ability to understand and interpret information as presented, 35% were considered illiterate or unable.

      Apparently some numbers actually have some meaning. The other 3% apparently either just drank too much Kool-Aid in the Clinton years, or are too busy free basing perfect quality, two million year old CO2 released from the glaciers by global warming.

      Let the personal attacks, Democratic talking points and revelry begin.

      LOL! You can't be serious???? Obama doesn't play politics??? You really shouldn't vote you're just not knowledgeable enough to be trusted with that right if you really believe Obama doesn't play politics. Obama is all about politics. Everything he's done or does a calculated more to maintain and obtain power. Every bill he's passed the benefits are timed to kick in before elections and the taxes to pay for it kick in afterwards. Heck he had to bribe his own party members just to shove legislation nobody wanted down the throats of Americans. Look at him now campaigning in backyards, that's not politics? The lies and his foolish policies that haven't worked and are destroying this country are coming back to haunt him! I'm really surprised his numbers aren't worse, but then with people like you out there I shouldn't be!

      LOL, the President isn't trying to do a single good thing.   All he wants is national destruction, because he believes that America is source of all evil in the world.

    38% think Obama should be re-elected. Stands to reason that 62% think he shouldn't?

    One sure way to guarantee Obama's reelection is for the gop to set the bozo up again for votes.

    The USA does not have a 'Vote of Confidence'. It's an election between 2 or more candidates. Without listing the altertnatives, the question only reflects the frustration people have about the economy. Bad as things are, I'm not sure a majority will run back into the barn that the GOP tried to burn down.

    I think the same poll suggested that Obama would win re-election in a walk if Palin is the GOP nominee.

      LOL, you really have consumed the Kool-aid haven't you?   Palin would mop the floor with Barack.   You see, you have never paid any attention to PALIN, only the cartoonish nonsense the media has thrown at you.   When appropriate, Palin will and can portray not only a sensible, but ultimately wise world and national view.   

      Which isn't to say much.   Obama can't and hasn't ever managed to coherently describe any set of policies that make sense.    Palin can describe in a relaxed (from the notes on her hand) speech full of "youbetchas" and "mama  grizzlies", a comprehensive and cohesive set of policies that Obama coudln't begin to even approach, given 3 months of intense work and 50 of his hand picked advisors.   

      Palin's instinctive grasp of reality and prudent policy dramatically exceeds anything Obama has ever learned and all that his advisors could put together during 4 years of actual presidential office-holding.   Why?  Because Obama learns nothing, having convinced himself his fantastic and utterly unreal worldview is the stuff of wisdom.
