Easy on the napkins.

It's 'cause he's black.

On a serious note, he may be a below average president but at least it's better than the alternative. I'm looking at you Romney.

"A majority of Americans, however, don't want the law taken off the books. While 43 percent said the law should be repealed entirely, a combined 55 percent said the law is worth keeping: 7 percent think that it's already working well, and 48 percent think that it has some good aspects but needs changes to work better."

Don't post that part, you wouldn't want Obamacare to actually look *gasp* good. Not to mention that numbers on President Obama and Obamacare usually go down when there's a lot of misinformation on the act being spread in the media and back up once the real facts start to proliferate.

More important than this early polling is going to be the moment the employer mandate kicks in. If employers start dumping their employees by the millions into the exchanges then that would probably be a monumental game changer.

Proof worst President ever. I want to go back to 2008 and elect McCain/Palin. We certainly would be in better shape now.

I thought it was interesting that if you ask people about the things the ACA provides without mentioning Obama, (health insurance until 26, people who can't afford health insurance get supplements) people overwhelmingly support it.

Yeah. Jimmy Kimmel did a segment about that. 'Twas pretty good.

Anyway, can't take polls like that seriously considering all the lies and scare tactics the GOP use to slander Obama.

@jimkabrhel:

McCain and Palin were alright candidates but both went too far right and unfairly bashed.

I think the ACA is a disgrace. Not the idea of it, but how they totally dropped the ball on its management.

McCain didn't had the right temperament to be trusted with the nuclear football. Palin is a joke.

That's to be expected when you basically lie to the people who elect you.

How did the mandate social security? Did SS get this type of hate? I mean I know most people from that generation are pretty stupid, but still....

What makes the idea of another government forced "tax" anymore less appealing than SS?

Yeah, but at least we can say we have an attractive vice president.

I guess I mean more or less blatantly lying. I find it very hard to believe that the Prez didn't know these things would happen WRT Obamacare. If he really didn't have an inkling then he's an incompetent bastard that needs to get the hell out of office and let somebody who knows what they're doing take over.

I think they should have more prepared
