Nearly 80% of Americans have lost faith in the American political system, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll. Despite record highs in stocks (and consumer confidence?) – and a President proclaiming that as victory – 60% of Americans are dissatisfied with the economy and 70% believe the nation is heading in the wrong direction. Who is to blame for this? President Obama’s overall approval rating has collapsed to a new low at 40%, with only 42% approving of his handling of the economy. “Americans are cranky, unhappy… It is with everything going on the world,” and 57% are pissed off enough to carry a protest sign. But don’t worry, as President Obama has reiterated during his tenure, he “will not rest…”
What Republicans would protest…
What Democrats would protest….
What President Obama will do… Play more golf.
On the bright side, Obama is 10x more popular (among Americans) than Putin…
