What's that Paul Simon Song Again?

Slip Sliding Away? Something like that.

Was he singing about Obama's poll numbers:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 33% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-five percent (35%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -2. This is the third straight day the Approval Index has been below zero (see trends).

Some of the slippage is on his signature issue:

A Rasmussen video report notes that 42% now give the President good or excellent marks for handling the economy . That’s his lowest rating to date (Premium Members can see crosstabs and trends.Thirty-seven percent (37%) say the country is heading in the right direction.

You don't think that has something to do with 9.5% unemployment, now do you?

This isn't going to help either:

Public support for Judge Sonia Sotomayor slipped following the highly publicized Supreme Court reversal of a decision involving New Haven firefighters. Voters are evenly divided as to whether or not she should be confirmed.


Sorry. No rainbows. No candy boats on chocolate rivers. No Skittle-sh*tting unicorns. Just ugly reality.
