A new ABC poll just out indicates that President Obama enjoys a 69% approval rating. George Stephanopoulos of ABC’s This Week says Obama has sparked a surge of optimism, with 50% of Americans now believing we are headed in the right direction compared to just 19% as recently as January 16th.
But the economy continues to lag. We’ve experienced a record number of foreclosures, the automobile industry crisis, and high unemployment rates. Now there is discussion of a credit card crisis adding to our woes. Obama inherited this mess but you wouldn’t think so judging from the behavior of the tea baggers and Fox News.
This week, President Obama reached the end of his first 100 days, a milestone that some say marks the end of a new president’s honeymoon. We’d love to hear from you. How do you think the President has fared in his first 100 days? Place your comments below.
