I know there are a lot of legitimate reasons for voters out there to be upset with many of the things the Obama administration has done. His liberal base actually has a lot of genuine concerns that are probably driving his poll numbers down. That said, I cannot think of anyone less qualified to talk about bad poll numbers and what they mean to a president than Buch flack Dana Perino who sat up there day after day with the White House press corps and tried to explain what one of our worst presidents in history was doing to deserve his bad poll numbers.

Sorry Dana, but the administration you worked for did a lot to cause the problems going on in our day to day lives that have led people not to trust their government, like the sort of policies and lack of government oversight that led up to the collapse of our financial markets.

Republicans only use for government is to prove it can't work so they can privatize everything to enrich their campaign contributors and their lobbyists who move in and out of government. Something the Bush administration took to new heights. Why anyone should consider Dana Perino someone to take seriously on poll numbers and what they mean after who she worked for is beyond me.

Can you help us out?
