Nearly 60 percent of American voters say they lack faith in President Barack Obama, according to a public opinion poll published on Tuesday.

a new ABC News/Washington Post poll would rather have the Republicans run Congress "to act as a check on Obama's policies," vs. 43 percent who want the Democrats in charge to help support those policies. That's accompanied by a 7-point, one-month drop in approval of Obama's handling of the economy, to a career low.

Had I been a participant in the survey, I probably would have said I lack faith in Obama, too. My reasons, though, would be the opposite of those on the right, and so would those of many others on the left.

Ah, so it is good news for Obama fans! There just is never any bad news concerning Obama, is there?

It doesn't matter, it still amounts to Obama getting the boot and a Republican victory in 2010 and again in 2012. Thanks for your help.
