    This article points to Obama's team, and Obama himself, as being egotistical. We should be happy to be breathing the same air that they do, as it was said in the article.

    But I doubt that donors are primarily concerned about a "Thank You" card and a pat on the back from the president. What they really want is a return on their "investment" in his campaign. They want to know that he can make our economy strong again. The donors want to know that the small and large business climate can prosper, that the American dream lives on, and that unemployment numbers can be improved.

    Americans have given Obama nearly 4 years to show us that he knows how to lead. He has not been successful at anything domestically. His greatest success was killing bin Laden, and Obama didn't even do that. He simply gave the "go-ahead" to the military that had been hunting bin Laden.

    Obama has been a weak, unsuccessful, president. One of the worst in American history.

    I always think numbers that rate popularity amoung a candidates base are misleading. While it is probably true that only 49% of liberals approve of Obama's presidency, for many of them (like myself) it's because he isn't liberal enough. So clearly if Obama isn't liberal enough there is no way i'm voting for Romney. I'm sure if you ask conservatives many of them wouldn't have Romney as their first choice for nominee, but compared to Obama he is a conservative, so they would still support Romney.
