so the pl = 7%? but, but, but: they said they were the base!

RollCall: Despite their grousing about the administration during the Netroots Nation conference, liberal activists and bloggers are relatively happy with President Barack Obama’s performance.

A straw poll conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research showed that 80 percent either approve or strongly approve of the president …. The results broke down to 27 percent strongly approving of Obama and 53 percent approving “somewhat.” Thirteen percent said they “somewhat disapprove,” and 7 percent strongly disapprove of the president.

Thankk you Proud 😉

ah, those koch brothers’ puppets….

Steve Benen: The Koch Brothers’ Americans for Prosperity sponsored this year’s RightOnline conference in Minneapolis, and organizers and attendees were certainly on message … Tim Phillips, the president of Americans for Prosperity, continues to insist that President Obama “systematically” wants “higher prices on gasoline.”

…The talking points have been hammered home enough so that far-right activists can bark them like trained seals.

There are, however, two main problems with this. First, the notion that the Obama administration would want higher gas prices on purpose is deeply foolish … if voters don’t want to pay more at the pump, and the president doesn’t want to make voters angry in advance of his re-election bid, why would he deliberately pursue this?

Second, Tim Phillips appears to have a bit of a credibility problem – Americans for Prosperity just so happens to be financed by oil industry money. In other words, energy companies are financing a right-wing outfit to blame Obama for gas prices.
