    Hmm, I wonder if Mr. Catalino is/was dismissive of approval ratings when they apply to politicians he approves of…

    Did Republi-Kong EVER like Mr. Obama? I think not. Did Ken the Cartoonist ever like Mr. Obama? Not that I recall…

    I am unable to find a Republican that polls higher than Obama at 44%.
    Except maybe for the red states where there is so much ignorance.
    Back in 2005, most people seemed to understand these facts. A poll taken in September 2005, two weeks after the hurricane, showed that 54% of Americans disapproved of Bush’s response to the storm, while 43% approved.
    The recent poll, conducted over the past weekend, surveyed 274 Louisiana Republicans about their political identification, who they would support in a hypothetical primary, and who they “think was more responsible for the poor response to Hurricane Katrina: George W. Bush or Barack Obama.” Shockingly, 28% said they felt that George Bush was responsible, 29% blamed Barack Obama, and 44% were unsure. That’s right. When it comes to Louisiana Republicans, 29% blame a junior senator from Illinois for the response to Hurricane Katrina, and 44% do not know if they want to blame him, or the man who was actually president at time.
    There is no good reason for 29% of Louisiana Republicans to believe that Obama was more responsible for the federal response to Hurricane Katrina than Bush was. The fact that they do is indicative of an ignorance of history or disconnection with reality that should concern all of their fellow voters.

    Striving to achieve the same ratings as Filthy Feel-her.

    Why put such an obscene gesture in your ’toon, Mr. Catalino?

    ^The ignorance of “conservatives” especially on blogs like this, isn’t nearly as disturbing as the PRIDE they take in ignorance, and refusal to seek real facts.

    Trolling endlessly, with no point but attacking intelligence requires a lot of faith, maybe in Ayn Rand??

    Let’s address your own ignorance regarding “red states”. An ignorant individual paints with a broad brush and labels everyone in a particular geographic area “ignorant”. Ever been to upstate New York – it looks like the southern part of my native Alabama. Ever been to Huntsville, Alabama – my home town? We have the highest per capita number of engineers and PhDs in the United States. What did they accomplish – well, they designed built every space launch vehicle that NASA has put into space, designed and developed the TOW anti-tank missile, PATRIOT missile batteries and number of commercial innovations in satellite and geospatial technology (and other technologies) that are now part of everyday life.

    There are rednecks everyway and I met and observed many in the Syracuse, NY, while I was working on my doctoral program. New York is a blue state, correct?

    Until you’ve traveled to 43 states and 22 foreign countries, like myself, just keep your ignorance to yourself?

    Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

    Interesting. According to Gallup, Obama and W are, at this stage in their presidencies, tied in approval ratings. Clinton was a point ahead of Reagan.
    Of course, Fay Wray was alive at the end of the film and King Kong was dead. Survival rate should also be factored in.

    Hey Church, I see you’re calling people Obamabots again. Over on Markstein a few days ago you called me an Obamabot because I said that the Fort Hood shooting wasn’t terrorism. After a little discussion you agreed that the Fort Hood shooting wasn’t terrorism. Would you care to reconsider your use of this characterization?

    Talk about pot calling the kettle black. You are one of the most passionate, dedicated left wing Kool Aid slammers. Apparently unable to think past “Obama is holy and benevolent”, and of course “All who do not think like we do are evil and stupid.”

    That is pretty damning of the Huffington Post itself (hardly impartial, or even pretends to be impartial) says the polling firm was left leaning.
    Wonder if they actually conducted polling or drank some Kool Aid and made some numbers up…

    I never used the term “workplace violence”. And why should I compromise? You were wrong and you admitted it (very grudgingly). If I say that 2+2=4 and you say 2+2=6, should we compromise on 5?

    Can we continue with that discussion? I posed a question for you — if we agree that terrorism includes attacks on non-combatants in an effort to cause general terror in a population, would you agree also that the bombing of Hiroshima counts as terrorism? I know you don’t like moral relativists, and I was just wondering how you, as a moral absolutist, would evaluate that attack.

    If we’re going to keep bringing up Katrina, we also have to talk about the Democratic Governor who refused help when Bush offered it. He had the military in there within three days, against her wishes.

    So in your opinion it’s okay to kill non-combatants in some circumstances and not okay in other circumstances. So the morality is relative to the situation. So I guess you’re a moral relativist.
