In Your Opinion

If you listen to some people, President Obama had the worst week in his political career last week and he’s one step away from becoming the new Nixon in terms of popularity in the polls.

That is, if you listen to some people who work for the GOP and Fox News.  As for the rest of us…

According to the survey, which was conducted Friday and Saturday, 53% of Americans say they approve of the job the president is doing, with 45% saying they disapprove. The president’s approval rating was at 51% in CNN’s last poll, which was conducted in early April.

In other words, nobody really gives a shit about the various “scandals” and intrigues going on, ranging from edited e-mails and the Marine umbrella deployment brigade.

So if the Republicans were hoping to get a little traction out of all of this, the answer would be a resounding yawn.

The GOP has a habit of making mountains out of molehills as long as its someone else and the American electorate has tuned them out.
