    President Barack Obama will deliver a speech next month in Columbus on the economy and host a fundraiser for Gov. Ted Strickland and the Ohio Democratic Party, a White House official said.

    Obama will first speak at an event Aug. 18, followed by a separate event for the fundraiser. The official declined to provide any details.

    Awe man, what a pain in the ass. I probably can’t say I’m speaking for any of you, but don’t want him to come here. Quit wasting tax payer dollars and stay at home.

    Thought he might be here to support Strickland, but given Obama’s national poll numbers he might do more harm than good.

    Interesting.
    Obama’s approval rate is worse than Bush for the amount of time in office.
    The only one who dropped like this is Reagan.

    NM, didn’t see the slider at the bottom.

    I would add however, that his approval rating at this point (Bush) was close to Obama’s, which is pretty impressive since it was near 90 less than a year earlier.

    Let us not forget that Bush was enjoying a hefty dose of patriotism following 9/11 at this point in his presidency.

    Apparently, one tip for keeping approval numbers high is to take massive amounts of vacation time instead of accomplishing things and ticking people off.

    So THAT’S why Obama keeps coming here. Golf outings.
