I don't know if it was just me, but I found the part of Obama's speech the other day where he "sold" the government auto warranty program about as embarrassing for a President as could be imagined. It ranked right up there with the first George Bush losing his lunch in Japan and Clinton's MTV appearance when he was asked the "boxers or briefs" question. Obama looked like a pitchman on one of those late-night infomercials.

Yet the populace still approves almost 2-1, even as the tone of mainstream media grows more skeptical. What may be helping him is all the choas and noise around bonuses, CEOs, greedy bankers etc. Once those guys fade from the spotlight he will be the last guy standing--holding his card check application, his Meineke muffler warranty, and his "praise to Allah" video in Iran. It will be a long 4 years.
