Of course, the two probably aren’t correlated. It’s probably the high cost of gas that’s doing it.
Start with the low approval rating:
President Obama’s approval rating has hit the lowest level ever in CBS News polling, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times survey. The drop may be partially attributable to rising gas prices.
Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, according to the poll, conducted from March 7 to 11. Another 47 percent disapprove of his performance, up from 41 percent last month.
Mr. Obama’s approval rating was 50 percent last month.
And now the horrific deficits:
The federal government set a new monthly record deficit of $232 billion in February and has notched a total of $581 billion in the first five months of the fiscal year, according to the Treasury Department’s official count released Monday.
That record was set in February . . . our shortest month of the year.
Projected Obama defense: it’s a leap year!
Oh — and there’s another trillion dollar deficit coming this year.
A trillion here, a trillion there, and pretty soon, you’re talking real destruction of your children’s future.
