No on violated the terms or conditions of use. I stated the information was pulled from an internet site... (read the last line) I didn't post the link because I pulled it from a twitter profile and couldn't locate the link. Also, you should show the same concern when a certain blogger post from media sites daily.
Our problems in Iraq now are a direct result of this President's decision on HOW to disengage. It's not a sound strategy to just be the "anti-Bush" and simply pull everybody out. EVERY President is stuck with the decisions and actions of his predecessor. The smart ones do not allow the situation to collapse as Obama has.
The internet site you pulled these "7 things" from is selling the Obama administration's slant - and a majority of the country isn't buying it. See:
"Just 37 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, which is an all-time low in the survey, while 57 percent disapprove, an all-time high. "
So, spin on. But the rest of us know what the real deal is.

Sebekm- everyone's ratings are down. The Democrats ratings are actually higher than the Republicans. So not everyone is buying the Republican Snake Oil. Also, thanks for posting the link.
Everyone's rating is NOT down. And it's the POTUS rating at mid-term elections that is most important. I know you don't really read my blogs, but this is from my blog earlier this month:
"--In April, 47 percent of voters preferred that their representative in Congress be a Republican who is a check on the president, versus 43 percent who preferred a Democrat who will help the president pass his agenda. In May, the Republican check and balance gained a net nine points, lifting it to a majority position, 51–38.
--For the first time this year, our monthly generic ballot for Congress went Republican. In April it was 41 percent Republican to 43 percent Democratic. In May, it’s now 43–41 in favor of the GOP."
Seb- the Democrats are seen more favorable as the Republicans. Also, haven't you learned your lessons about polls? Eric Cantor would tell you to put it up.
I want go back and fourth with you because I have a feeling you could do this all day...Let's just wait until November- I guarantee you Democrats will maintain the Senate and a few states will turn blue.
I haven't been wrong yet! I told you Obamacare was here to stay and the POTUS would be re-elected. You argued both tooth and nail.
We shall see...
PN: That's old news. The GOP is now even or ahead in public opinion on who can handle the most important issues in the country. POTUS ratings are driving those numbers. An NBC News correspondent recently declared that the recent polls indicate that Obama's presidency - for all practical matters - is OVER based on his recent polls. See:
"President Obama's approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News."
"The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News' Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be over.
"This poll is a disaster for the president," Todd said. "You look at the presidency here: Lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina."
"On the issue of do you believe he can still lead? A majority believe no. Essentially the public is saying your presidency is over," Todd added."
I am not making this stuff up. These are the numbers and the conclusions are inescapable (with eyes wide open).
The ultimate polls will be reflected in November. Everything points to:
*Republicans hold the House
*Republicans have a good chance of taking the Senate. Those chances have been reinforced by every succeeding poll for the past six months
Here are a few of the recent polls I'm referring to. First, check this one out:
And lastly, the odds-makers earlier this month projected that the GOP takes the Senate:
Note especially their odds for the GA Senate race. They're calling it 70-30 FOR the GOP candidate - whoever that happens to be.
