President Obama’s approval rating of 40% represents a new low. Mounting issues are plaguing him and his administration. Jobless claims continue to be high. The reported unemployment rating is still in the 9%+ range. Obamacare is still leaving a nasty taste in the mouths of many. And now the debt talks.
Neither side seems to be able to put a plan on the table that will have enough support to patch the problem. That’s right. Patch. You have to call it a patch because America has been here before, and they will be here again. Some argue it as a spending problem, while others argue it as a revenue problem. But what it really points to is just how divided the nation is. There are too many parties in Washington.
All of this is evidence of falling approval ratings for Obama. Which, will prove to be a problem for him as the election continues to draw near.
