Obama Approval Nearing Only A Third of the Nation

According to Rasmussen Reports, 31% of Americans strongly Approve of President Obama and his white house administration so far. The flip side of this percentage is a staggering 39% who are strongly opposed to his so called radical administration. Overall, 49% have some emotion of approval toward the head of state compared to 50% who harbor small amounts of bitterness. These kind of numbers were absolutely unheard of during the President's campaign for office. I believe that during these few months of inception, a majority of the American public are now getting a clearer picture and realizing exactly who Obama is and what he represents. Let's be honest, so far his policies are in stark contrast to the Hope and Change he soap-boxed back in '08 of November. He had promised to fundamentally transform this nation, but that fundamental transformation people thought he was talking about is entirely a horse of a different color. We now see through some of the steps President Obama has been taking that his vision for a fundamental transformation in America is a complete transformation of the system! Obama's ideas and presented legislation goes against the Constitution he swore to protect.

I'm not saying I'm against him as an individual, I'm just opposed to the policies he has enacted and is trying to pass through Congress. We are a Republic nation, not a democracy. Simply put, democracy is mob rule, whereas a republic is a representative assembly elected by the people. We are a democracy in the sense that the power lies with the people, however we are a republic in the way we display that "people power" in politics. Since we are a Republic, when the representatives we elected do not act accordingly, we have the right to become upset. When I disagree with your policies as an elected official it's as simple as that, I disagree with your policies not the color of your skin. It astonishes me, the remarks made saying that a majority of those who are in opposition to the President are in opposition because he is black! That's completely absurd! Never when we had an overwhelming disapproval rate of past President Bush did the media report that it is because of his race, religion, etc. Honestly, I think it is a dire attempt to create more hatred toward those who are agianst Obama's policies.

In your humble service,
