Obama approval ratings on the rise
Forget Novembers election shellacking, at least for now. Things are looking up for President Barack Obama.

A flurry of new opinion polls show Obamas approval ratings climbing above 50 percent for the first time in months, fueled by growing public confidence in the economy and a positive reaction to his response to the Arizona shootings and the spurt of bipartisan accomplishment in Congress in December.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll published earlier this week put Obamas approval at 54 percent, up five percentage points since December, and an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll had him at 53 percent, up eight percentage points in a month.

At least four other recent polls show Obamas approval climbing above 50 percent, a strong turnaround after his ratings hit new lows in the fall and his fellow Democrats were crushed in elections that saw Republicans seize control of the House of Representatives.

1. Pretty pleased to see those numbers.
Sure seems the anti-O rhetoric on here has started picking up again :(
