Obama is tanking in the polls, but NPR says not to worry. While Bush’s tanking in the polls was a sign that he was a lame duck, Obama’s tanking in the polls is meaningless. The reasons given are insanely stupid: He’s never been effective with Congress; bad poll numbers are irrelevant (when it’s a Dem polling badly, of course); the map isn’t really that purple; his 15 point drop is a drop in the bucket; and he’s not running for office anymore anyway. So if I get this right, it doesn’t matter that people are starting to figure Obama out, because he’s always been a useless, ineffective git, and that’s never mattered before to his ability to “fundamentally transform” America, so why worry now.
