Obama Most Polarizing American President in Modern History

From Gallup:

PRINCETON, NJ -- The 65 percentage-point gap between Democrats' (88%) and Republicans' (23%) average job approval ratings for Barack Obama is easily the largest for any president in his first year in office, greatly exceeding the prior high of 52 points for Bill Clinton.

Overall, Obama averaged 57% job approval among all Americans from his inauguration to the end of his first full year on Jan. 19. He came into office seeking to unite the country, and his initial approval ratings ranked among the best for post-World War II presidents, including an average of 41% approval from Republicans in his first week in office. But he quickly lost most of his Republican support, with his approval rating among Republicans dropping below 30% in mid-February and below 20% in August. Throughout the year, his approval rating among Democrats exceeded 80%, and it showed little decline even as his overall approval rating fell from the mid-60s to roughly 50%. [Continued]

Hope. Change. Bi-partisanship. Transparency. All empty vessels dashed on the jagged rocks of political reality. We are the United States of America, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetero, and it is about time you get that fact through your narcissistic head. Americans may not be the brightest lightbulbs in the bunch, but once they get the whiff of socialist tyranny, they will turn on you in a flash.
