The flare-up between the White House and Albany is not doing President Barack Obama any good either.  52% of New York State registered voters say President Obama is doing either an excellent or good job in office.  46% report he is doing a subpar job.

There has been little change in the proportion of Democrats and Republicans who approve of the president’s job performance since Marist last asked this question.  However, there has been a drop among non-enrolled voters in the state.  Currently, 42% of these voters report Obama is performing well in office.  53% held this view last week.

    To you 52%…just what exactly is it that BO is doing so well? Is it the “stimulus” package loaded with pork? Is it the trillion…TRILLION-dollar healthcare boondoggle that 85% of the people in this country don’t want? Or is it the billions flushed down the toilet to big business without any explaination as to where the money was “spent”? Or maybe you just like how he trots around the globe hatin’ on the US by apologizing for it all the time? Perhaps it’s his complete cluelessness about what to do in Afghanistan? Come on you 52%…WAKE UP! Take your heads out of your a**es and take a look around before so blindly “approving” of this costly, embarrassingly amateurish “administration”!!
