Seems like The Light Bringer is fading. Gallup reported this day that his PERSONAL APPROVAL RATINGS have slipped into the 30s for the first time, evah!
According to the Los Angeles Liberal Fish-wrap:
New data posted Sunday shows that 39% of Americans approve of Obama's job performance, while 54% disapprove. Both are the worst numbers of his presidency.
Obama's approval rating has hovered in the 40% range for much of 2011, peaking at 53% in the weeks following the death of Osama bin Laden.
But Americans' view of his job performance continued to tick downward as the debt-ceiling debate heated up. By the time he signed legislation averting a federal default, he was mired in the low-40% range.
The significance of this is that he has slipped below the 40% barrier despite Gallup and the other liberal pollsters math-tortured algorithms and skewed polling sampled efforts to keep this lead balloon afloat. ("In a poll taken of White House staffers and former Obama campaign workers, the president has emerged with a solid 40% approval rating..")
But I won't dwell on this because I have a brand-new-used Tektronix-7CT1N curver-tracer to play with today and wasting time on this worthless piece of crap and his numbers is not my idea of spending a nice Summer Sunday in Southern California despite this being a landmark event.
Besides, I told you I was a geek!
LUNCHTIME GEEK-BREAK UPDATE: If you want to have a real eye-opening experience, go to the cited Los Angeles Times article cited above and read the comments. There's the usual liberal v. conservative back-and-forth; but then there's a few like the one below:

I worked very hard to get President Obama elected, including walking my neighborhood, raising money, and manning phone banks, and needless to say, I am beyond disappointed in him. Every day we are getting emails and letters with 'talking points' from the campaign to blame it on the teabaggers, blame it on bush, blame it on the japan earthquake, blame it on, well anyone but President Obama. Instead of being a strong leader who can get things done, like President Clinton did, President Obama is going to ruin the Democratic party for decades. I remember when Lyndon Johnson was President and tried many of the same things as President Obama. Our party came to him and said stop, you are setting back progressive causes for decades. LBJ was encouraged not to run again and he didn't. You can't eat an entire elephant in the first bite and if you try, you'll choke. That's where we are at now. It is time to get someone to primary against President Obama. I, for one, regret not supporting Hillary Clinton. Run Hillary Run!
The point is that even Democrats are becoming concerned about how inept this guy is. They are beginning to realize that, not only will he lose the election, but he will take a lot of the 22 Democrat senators with him. Hope I don't jinx this, but we are watching a perfect storm brewing here.
