– Bill Rush
These and similar quotes might explain how perhaps one of the most incompetent and ineffective presidents in American history can still score a whopping 43% Approval in any poll.  Perhaps it's momentum. I mean, what are people thinking?  Well, they're not.  I get the feeling we are a nation in a stupor.  Things are bad.  Not just economically, but across the board.  For decades we've been told our nation sucks and always has sucked.  A generation has grown up not caring, not being part, not belonging. Why care about a nation with so much badness in its past? 
We're plugged to electronic media and are losing our abilities to interact with the real world.  Almost losing our abilities to understand that the real world and the internet are not one and the same - for now.  The economy remains anemic.  Our foreign policy is incoherent at best.  Obama was supposed to be the Knight in Shining Armor, the Messiah, the man who God prays to every morning.  And yet nothing.  What has he accomplished?  What is he doing?  Does anyone care?
Most media outlets handle this by no longer reporting the news, but by focusing on as many other stories round the clock as possible.  Wait for something - anything - to happen and then push everything else down to footnote status.  Anyone notice that?  There's little to no mention about the plight of our nation.  Just the latest incident that can keep focus away from the main problems. So a country filled with a growing number of people who don't care, certainly aren't going to be shocked into caring when the main source for information is doing what it can to avoid mentioning anything.  
So 43%?  Two decades ago, this stagnant and declining nation would be front page news, and poll numbers would be in the 30s at best.  It's a testament to the media strategy that they are this high, and yet perhaps there is a hope for the inner spark of humanity that despite the media's best efforts, so many are finally waking up from the embarrassing delusion.
