Most. Polarizing. President. Ever.
The Washington Post is reporting that Barack Obama, whose campaign touted him as a great unifier, is the most polarizing president ever. Comparing Obama's approval/disapproval ratings, the Post's Chris Cilliza, finds that in his third year in office, Obama's unfavorable numbers are higher even than those of George W. Bush. The numbers should come as no surprise. What does amaze is the Post taking note of them. What would have been truly shocking would have been the Post putting the Bush/Obama comparisons in the proper context by noting that a significant amount of Bush's disapproval was driven by a relentless onslaught of critical, unfavorable even disparaging reporting by the liberal media. Today we witness that same liberal media bending itself into pretzels trying to make Obama's incompetence and failures look like anything but.
Can you imagine what Obama's true disapproval rating would be if he didn't have those media alchemists trying to turn his leaden administration into gold?
