    People just blame the incumbent party in bad times. And what Obama is doing certainly can't hurt. But speeches NEVER, EVER pull a 40% approval rating up. If you get a single point up, that's an accomplishment.

    Obama's approval depends on the economy. The American Jobs Act would help, but Republicans have no incentive to help Obama get re-elected, no matter how much he shames them.

    People panic too much on this site.

    •  To me it was obvious (0+ / 0-)

      that the Republicans weren't going to participate in improving the economy.

      I haven't quite given up on the idea that the Republicans will either look worse on the economy or at least share the blame, but I'm thinking that might not be realistic.

      I hate to think that we're screwed, but most roads lead to that for me.

      Ok, so I read the polls.
