  •  contrast with Bush: (2+ / 0-)

    it was exactly at this point in Bush's first term that his approval rating dipped, as Obama's bottomed out last week, near the 50% level.  

    Bush's salvation? His failure to prevent a devastating attack on US soil followed by his machiavellian exploitation of the disaster.

    Obama's? Two brilliant speeches.  

    Caveat: If he doesn't follow them up with results on the healthcare, financial, and military fronts (ironically, all of them being crises created by Bush), last week may prove not to have been his bottom after all.

    "Well, yeah, the Constitution is worth it if you can succeed." -Nancy Pelosi, 6/29/07.
