Obama not doing so well

If you think the triumphant headlines about Obama’s first 100 days are suspicious, if you find that MSM praise is fishy, don’t doubt your judgment; you are right. In fact, compared to previous presidents, he is doing poorly:

Gallup reports that 56% of the public believes that Obama is doing an excellent/good job. Gallup reported 62% approved of George W. Bush's job performance after the first 100 days.

Here are the numbers for other presidents:

April approval ratings in first year in office

Bush now 62% 
Clinton, 1993 55
Bush, 1989 58
Reagan, 1981 67
Carter, 1977 63
Nixon, 1969 61
Sampling error: +/-3% pts

The same discrepancy can be found in the celebration of Michelle popularity. 79% approve of her performance compared to 85% that approved of Laura Bush.

The more they lie and cover for him now, the more they will turn against him later.
