Obama Approval At 50%, Higher Than George W. Bush's At Same Point In Presidency

Somehow, that bumbling socialist usurper in the White House who has constantly apologized for America -- has the approval of half of the country.

Obama’s overall approval rating stands at 50 percent, the highest in a Post-ABC News poll since a brief run above 50 percent immediately after Osama bin Laden was killed in early May.

But what about all those Real Americans in Real America?

Overall, 55 percent of those who are closely following the campaign say they disapprove of what the GOP candidates have been saying.

But surely, a man who made his $250M outsourcing creating jobs will mop the floor with the Kenyan Marxist, right?

In a general-election test, Obama leads Romney 52 to 43 percent among all Americans; more narrowly, 51 to 45 percent, among registered voters. Among all adults, it’s Obama’s first time topping 50 percent in a head-to-head matchup with Romney since July; it’s his first time ever above that point among registered voters.

For those keeping score at home, the Black Jimmy Carter is currently outperforming the Great Leader who was supposed to usher in a permanent Republican majority. Yes, we've got a long way to go on unemployment -- but as the ad says, "pessimism never created a job."

How's that taste, GOP?
