    They won't. See BS is vying for Obama's most dedicated propaganda apparatus. They will make sure those results never see the light of day.

    I'm conflicted...technically Obama didn't really do anything his first year which I actually see as a good thing.

    Now his second year I see as lousy because of that health care thing and the possible amnesty thing we'll probably see later this or next year.

    By government schools standards he'll get an incomplete . . . and then move up to the next grade level. :faint:

    Well to what standards are you people holding him against? If it is to G.W. Bush's standards then Obama gets a B-. Of course like I have mentioned before, many have decided to remain oblivious to what Bush left on Obama's hands.

    Likewise. Too bad there was nothing lower than an F.

    It ain't bush who made him force a communist healthcare system on us. For that alone he should be impeached.

    For what its worth I agree with you...to a point.

    Obama's administration really messed up in my opinion...every administration's goal is to get a second term. Obama could have been mildly successful in turning some things around and it would have almost guaranteed him a second term. Every time I hear someone say "It's Bush's fault" in many cases (and in this one) I agree. Between the Republican party putting up a poor candidate and the alienation Bush's administration further drove into the country, the Democrats could have run almost anyone or anything and won.

    Just like a lot of woman on the news were screaming they wouldn't vote for Obama because the party didn't put a woman as their candidate; a lot of Republicans didn't vote for McCain because they were ticked at Bush and the Republican party. I think behind closed doors most Republicans didn't want to run because they thought they would lose. Even with all the problems the Bush Administration plagued this country with, if the Republicans could have convinced a solid conservative candidate to run I think they would have had a better than average chance.

    However, you are right. With what he was left with, I'm surprised anyone wanted that job.

    Then again, I didn't think anyone could have made things worse...I was wrong.

    I voted, but I bet CBS won't report the results. He is an F grade kind of guy.

    Oh, get over it!. What you didn't like Bush for O has done even more of.

    Don't like the spying on phone calls and e-mails Bush started? The big O reinforced to plan and actually added more intrusions into privacy.

    Don't like Bush's deficit spending? In a year, the big O has TRIPPLED what Bush left us with.

    Stop blaming Bush for the failures of the big O. That's how he is able to keep eroding our rights. His idea is 'Well Bush did, I can do it more and blame Bush!'

    While President Bush spent like a Democrat and his administration failed to effectively govern domestically while having a majority in congress - they didn't fix Social Security or make the tax cuts permanent - he understood that America is a free republic based on a free market and did not pursue Marxian objectives like nationalizing the auto industry, taking over the banks or destroying the best health care system in the world by socializing it.

    Geez -- I'm surprised CBS still has this poll up. I can't believe they want that sap to be raked over the coals this badly...
