"Wrong Direction": In Defense of Obama

President Obama is doing enough wrong that we don;t have to make up stuff to blame him for. Pundits are having a field day with a new poll that shows that 62% of Americans say that the country is "on the wrong track."

This is my most-hated poll. I blogged about this specific poll ad naseum when Bush was President. The reason? becvause it fails to ask why. Bush's numbers could have been high because liberals were saying "yes" because they didn't want us in Iraq and Conservatives were saying "wrong track" because we felt Bush was pussy-footing around over there. Obama probably has conservatives saying "hell yeah wrong track" because of the socialist bend to all Obama's policies, but the Libs are saying "wrong track" also because they feel like Obama isn't being as radical as he promised.

So yeah, wrong direction, but does it matter if the participants don;t agree on what direction we should be going in?

So blame Obama for the economic and ecologic disaster in the Gulf because he refuses to life the Jones Act, blame him for the huge tax increases to come that will cripple us to pay for healthcare and eventually Cap-n-trade and blame him for choosing a bedfellow like the labor unions...who, mark my words, will be the demise of this country as we know it.

But don't harp on the "wrong direction" thing, it's a given the percentage on that poll will always be high. Truthfully, I thought the poll was good news for the President...I can't believe only 48% of Americans disapprove of the job he's doing...
