Funny, but I didn’t remember NPR taking this stand when Bush was president

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.
