The obligatory “Man, that Q-Poll was pretty bad for Obama, huh?” post.

This is a glass two-thirds full kind of situation, really.  Maybe 3/4ths: after all, it annoys some so when I get to chuckle.

President Barack Obama’s approval rating took a hit amid three controversies surrounding his administration, including an investigation into the IRS unfairly targeting conservative groups seeking nonprofit status, a new poll Thursday showed.

Obama has a 45 percent approval rating and a 49 percent disapproval rating — compared with a 48 percent approval, 45 percent disapproval rating from May 1, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.

Good News (for Obama): he’s not running for re-election*.
Bad News (for Democratic candidates): A lot of them are, next year.

*Come to think of it… good news to us, too. Not so much because I wasn’t willing to go Waltzing Mathilda again, but because there’s a sharp limit to how many days that the man can keep mucking up the country.

    so if he just went nuts and started mowing down people with a machine gun would he still have a 45% approval rating?

        I bet he could target women and still maintain his advantage with female voters.

        and I am a female voter.

        acat: Doesn’t matter, just incongruous. I would assume that the title, “jbird” is neither male nor female, much like “acat”, whereas “earlgrey” is masculine. I am male, though I feel I can comment on this as some of my best friends are female…

          jbird: I keep getting called “her” or “she” despite being a chicago alley tomcat.

          I just find the assumption that any handle says anything about gender is .. strange.

          For all we know, Moe has been lying to us for years and is actually short for Monica.
