So Far, So Good

By Jack Kinsella

A hundred days into his presidency, Barack Obama’s standing with the public remains high, increasing the odds he can enact his fascist agenda. Most Americans like the new president, even amid some reservations about his policy goals, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

Among the 19 executive orders and 12 laws that bear his signature, Obama expanded a federally funded, state-run children’s insurance program and enacted pay equity changes, not to mention his $787,000,000,000.00 “stimulus package” borrowed from the next two generations of Americans.

The poll also finds that the president himself is more popular than his policies, a divide that may catch up with him as Congress begins debate over the big issues in earnest.

Or not. Somebody Down There seems to like him.
