Pollster averages various and sundry polls and viola: the moment has arrived when less than 50% of Americans approve of the job President Obama is doing. MC really thinks at this point he doesn't particularly care what Americans think: he knows best.
All we can say is: carry on in precisely the same way for another year and we'll be in fine shape to gain House and Senate seats. And no, MC never underestimates Obama. But we are amazed he continues to be tone deaf and inflict damage to his administration, the outrageous decision to investigate CIA interrogators being just the latest example.
