<span style="color: #FF0000">And this surprises who? Now they are turning to calling any disapproval of his policies racist. The last refuge of an administration in deep trouble. </span>

On Thursday, the president will travel to Holland, Mich., to tout investments created by the Recovery Act. Several other administration officials, including the vice president, will hit the road, too. These periodic jaunts are part of "Recovery Summer," a months-long enterprise that, like the summer trips everyone else takes, will be punctuated by a single question: "Are we there yet?"

Economists may say, yes, the economy is recovering (maybe), but the country says no. Only 25 percent say the economy is improving, according to a recent CBS survey. That's just one of the dark findings for the administration in a slew of recent polls that suggest that the administration's summer tour will do little to improve the president's political fortunes and those of his party.

Three polls that came out in the last two days offer discouraging news for the White House. In the Washington Post/ABC News poll, public confidence in the president has hit a new low. Six in 10 voters say they lack faith in the president. In a CBS News poll, 54 percent of the country disapprove of his handling of the economy, the highest number to date. In a Pew Research Center/National Journal poll, the number of Americans who approve of the president's health care legislation, the signature achievement of his presidency so far, sits at an anemic 35 percent.

Some people take longer than others to see the light.

I have asked my step-father to make an apology for voting for Obama. He is ashamed, I know, but has so far been very stubborn about making any mia culpa statements. He also voted for Kennedy back in 1960 but had no recurrances until 2008.

JFK would be considered a tea party radical today.

Obama is going down faster than a 10 dollar whore.

The reports in the news are that home lenders anticipate 1 million home forclosures in the next year, due to the unemployment rate remaining so high for so long.

Another sure sign that the economy is recovering! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif
