National Journal’s Hotline reports that President Obama’s approval numbers are at an all-time low. Not exactly what the White House had planned as the reaction to the State of the Union.
As a good friend of mine predicted before the speech, Obama “doubled down” on defending his policies and not moderating this actions. Even his so-called “spending freeze” was pushed off a year – to the literal laughter of Congress.
Obama has reacted by saying that he would rather be a great one-term President than a mediocre two-term President. The problem with his comment is that if a President is great, he gets reelected. Think about it. Other than JFK, name a “great” one term President.
