Actually, I find it stranger that this president
hasn't been pampered and protected like he was during the race for the job. He's taken his share of knocks. As for "great news", I think that just depends on whose ears it hits. I've heard and read that when people are satisfied, the say little but will gripe like crazy if everything isn't perfect.
Category of ratings
Where it has fallen is in the category, "Do you approve of Obama's health care plan?"
However, a good majority answer in the affirmative when asked i they support reform, and to even some of the proposals.
However, his personal popularity remains strong.
RE: has drawn no mention at all here,
no one wanted to be the first one.
Heard something today about Bushs approval rating going up after raising the terrorist threat level.
Think Obama should try that?
If you sound the alarm, there had better be a fire. Let the weatherman convince you to carry your umbrella for 3 days in a row and you end up with a sunburn, you're gonna' have his head on a stake.
RE: end up with a sunburn,
I carry a dual purpose unit, an UMbrella and a SUNbrella
Jim Carey says that weathermen
are the only people that are paid to lie.
Maybe he did, but if so he was wrong ...
It's pretty obvious that politicians make more money lying than they do telling the truth. I guess they must be paid to lie also.
I hate to pick on them, but...
Right, I forgot ..
How can you tell when a lawyer is lying?
When his lips are moving.
I heard that about car salesmen
when I was selling cars. Of course, they also said it about customers.
I really hate the price haggling game
on the car lots. It's as if it's a sports competition that comes with bragging rights to the winner. I know Saturn didn't haggle in the beginning but don't know if they ever caved. I don't know how the haggling tradition found it's way into car buying. It can be rather nerve wracking....and what really happens when the sales person disappears to present your offer to the manager for approval? I'd love to hear that conversation.
Yeah, I've heard it about other folks too,
Politicians, car salesmen, attorneys, Microsoft tech support, and also customers of almost any business/profession ... but my favorite victims are attorneys.
Of course, I've also heard a lot of jokes about my own profession. Some of which we probably deserve (but I didn't say that).
Lawyer joke told to me by an older lawyer, pillar of the
Canadian Establishment, life long Conservative, and Queen's Counsel, who appeared before the Canadian Supreme Court several times.
An honest lawyer, a crooked lawyer, Mickey Mouse and Daffy Duck were round a table playing cards. Right when the pot was the biggest all the lights went out, and when they came back on all the money was gone. Now, who stole the money and why?
The crooked lawyer of course, the other three are all fictional characters.
