The media is giddy this AM - they have driven Obama's approval ratings to 41%

What I saw of broadcast propaganda this morning, I thought they were going to bust a gut with their elation over driving down his numbers.

They are quite proud of their feat of driving the nations views and what are they attributing this to: Obamacare. Not the roll-out of Obamacare, but the whole law.

1. The President isn't running for office any time soon.

I am not worried about his poll numbers.

2. His approval ratings are always higher when he

stands up to the republican congress. When he gives in to them, they drop!

Should of had a public option!

5. Agree

Obama could have passed through congress a public option or the health insurance exchanges and he didn't choose the public option. I mean the GOP and DINOs would have gone along with whatever he chose.

9. Possible reasons

They want to start the primaries now. They want the ad money flowing fast and early.

GOP targets Franken over shaky rollout of Obama’s health care overhaul.

The Minnesota Democrat, facing re-election to the Senate, ups his fundraising goal as Republicans mount a new line of attack.

WASHINGTON – Republicans preparing to challenge U.S. Sen. Al Franken next year may not have a leading candidate, but they believe they’ve been handed a gold-plated issue in the tumultuous rollout of President Obama’s health care overhaul.

While Obama famously said he will never face another election, the same is not true for Franken, who became an instant GOP target after his 2009 recount win over Republican Norm Coleman. In a narrowly divided Senate, Franken’s support for the Affordable Care Act later proved critical to its passage.

Franken has largely steered clear of controversy in the Senate and continues to poll well at home. But while he is in a commanding position going into 2014, Franken faces a national GOP playbook that is betting heavily on worsening problems in the implementation of the massive health care law widely known as Obamacare.

Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus has vowed to “tattoo it to their forehead in 2014.” Obama has acknowledged the “burden” the rollout has put on Democrats.

Franken, like other Senate Democrats facing re-election, has pressed feverishly to repair damage that appears to be escalating well beyond the technical glitches that have plagued the HealthCare.gov website.

Low initial enrollment numbers, canceled policies and widespread discontent with the website are contributing to a sense of siege among Democrats in Congress.
