Obama approval falls to Karzai levels
While Barack Obama and Afghan president Hamid Karzai may disagree on how to deal with the Taliban and al Qaeda, they do have something in common. Gallup reports that Obama's daily job approval rating, after spiking briefly after the public learned that Obama would be leaving Washington to vacation in Maine, has dropped back down to 44%. That exactly the same level as Karzai's approval in Afghanistan, according to Gallup's new numbers. There has to be some hidden meaning there.
