President Obama’s approval rating is at its lowest point to date. According to the newest GALLUP poll, only 54% of Americans now approve of the job he’s doing as president.
A few thoughts on why I believe this is happening:
• Waffling on the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the “Defense of Marriage Act”
• Delay in removing the combat troops from of Iraq by Aug. 2010. The new date now stands at sometime 2011
• Failure to control the Blue Dog Democrats, and win the support of the AMA and the insurance industry for the creation of national healthcare
All help to reinforce an image of a president unable to deliver the change he made the cornerstone of his campaign.
