The People & The President Vs. The GOP

Unpossible! The Rush Limbaugh led Republicans say that President Obama is losing the American people... but the facts disagree.

The American public gives President Barack Obama a strong 67% approval rating for the way in which he is handling the government's efforts to pass an economic stimulus bill, while the Democrats and, in particular, the Republicans in Congress receive much lower approval ratings of 48% and 31%, respectively.

For eight years the GOP effectively used the bully pulpit of the presidency - unequal to any other stage in American politics - and tonight they're going to get a taste of their own medicine.
