Tarnishing That Halo

Obama's Shrinking Approval on Health Care - Behind the Numbers OK, so I am late to catch this story. I just can't get over the glee I feel at his misfortune. Schadenfreude is a powerful thing.

I just can't see why people saw him as anything but a Chicago pol. Maybe not a machine hack, but not fighting the machine either.
Barack Obama's approval rating on the issue in the new poll fell below 50 percent for the first time, to 49 percent with 44 percent disapproving, including a 16-point decline since the 100-day mark of his presidency in approval on the issue among women and a nine-point drop among independents.
How can you give him good marks on "handling health-care reform," when he has turned the whole thing over to Pelosi and Company? Does anyone think that 1000 pages amounts to carefully considered legislation?

64 percent of liberals approve of his handling of health care, down from 81 percent in April. When the liberals turn against him, he is in trouble.
