The AP reported:

President Barack Obama says his low approval rating is a reflection of public unhappiness with Congress.

Obama tells CBS in an interview broadcast Sunday that he’s “impacted,” just like Congress, when people aren’t happy with Washington.

He says he understands that his arguments that the country would have been worse off if he hadn’t taken certain actions don’t resonate with the millions of unemployed people.

The president, who’s vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, says he expects to be judged in November 2012 on whether things have improved.

Recent public opinion polls have shown Obama’s job approval rating at near 40 percent, the lowest of his presidency.

    “Impacted” my a**. He’s just full of bullsh*t from being on vacation so long and not spreading it around. Beware of his next speech. He’ll probably pass it all then.

    the disapproval rate of congress is a reflection of their support of the myth’s marxist programs. people don’t disapprove of the myth because of congress, they disapprove of congress because of the myth.

    This man could crap in his own pants and still blame it on somebody else……….


  • Estragon

    People are very dissatisfied with Congress because they haven’t hanged this traitor yet.

    To shore up his approval ratings before elections, the next Genius decision by Obama is to allow weekend furloughs for OJ Simpson, so he can have a photogenic golfing buddy alongside him when the press corp comes around.
