The Honeymoon is Over.. Anti Obama Sentiments on the Rise!
With the recent actions of President Obama butting his head into the local case of Crawford and Gates in Cambridge, MA, the President's popularity rating has taken a major nosedive. Roughly half of the population approves of Barack Obama after this situation. It's his first noticeable action that has sparked huge controversy amongst the public, and rightly so.
Why did he do it? Regardless of his friendship with the Harvard Professor, Obama has done something that has struck a nerve with the American people. Why get involved? Yes, he is the President of the United States, but this is a local case, and the nation is involved in two major wars and the worst recession since the Great Depression. Why take time away from your job to host a "beer summit?" This is just as irresponsible as George W. Bush taking a vacation to his ranch in Texas as we were just starting a war. There's work to do, Obama!
So, yes, his poll numbers and approval ratings are slipping, and Anti Obama sentiments are on the rise. The good news is that's a good thing. When someone doesn't do their job, they need to be made aware of the issue. So get back to work, Obama!
Here are some new designs inspired by the recent events in the economy and from Obama that you might enjoy:
