President Obama: Is This The Change You Were Talking About?

The number of self-identified Democrats falls below 50% for the first time since 2005:

"Forty-nine percent of adults said they were Democrats or leaned Democratic while 40.7 percent of adults polled said they were Republican or leaned Republican. By comparison, 51.5 percent of adults identified as Democratic in 2008 while 39.8 percent said they were Republican.

Gallup's analysts noted that the numbers are partially the result of a sharp decline in Democratic support over the course of 2009, President Barack Obama's first year in office."

Thanks Mr. President!  You know, I'm thinking more and more that President Obama was the creation of Karl Rove.  Genius!  Finally getting around to that Republican majority thing he always talked about.

  1. A year ago tonight I was looking forward with great anticipation to the presidency of Barack Obama. I thought that this may very well be the "new age" that I have been looking forward to for most of my life. What a difference a year makes. Thus far, as you might imagine, I have been let down by this president. That is why it is so funny to see him labeled by the Right a "radical socialist". If Obama were half as radical as the Conservative media is trying to portray him, people like me wouldn't be one tenth as disappointed in him as we are.

    Don't misunderstand, I am still grateful that he was elected last year. I thank God every day that John McCain will not be sleeping in the Executive Mansion tonight and that Fascist Barbi will not be a heartbeat away from the presidency. While it is true that he has not yet given us the "change we can believe in", it is still too early in his term to make any final assessment. There is some time for optimism - although that time is dwindling rapidly. Still, the alternative to Obama's election last year is just too weird to even contemplate. We should be grateful for that - I guess.
