RussTC3:

As I noted in the other thread, the President has seen a nice uptick over the last week. That trend continues -- and expands slightly -- when this CNN poll is included.

Here's an updated look at the President's standing over the last week (compared to the week prior):

November 4-10, 2009
Approve 50.7%
Disapprove 45.8%
Approve + 4.9%

November 11-17, 2009
Approve 52.7%
Disapprove 42.4%
Approve + 10.3%

It's that damn liberal media again! Shame on them. Only Glen Beck it what matters. Oh wait... we cannot forget Fox News (We distort you deride).

The internal show that of the 49% who oppose the bill, 10% oppose it because it is not liberal enough. I've always had a sneaking suspicion that a significant portion of opposition comes from the single-payer proponents.

It would be interesting to see how many people actually support the boon-doggle that would be a single-payer in this country.

Lat, still off your meds?

@ Feely McMarshall

You're really hitting the "stay on your meds" line today. Trying to artificially inflate your pharmaceutical stocks?

Field Marshal:

Hey, I'm just looking out for him. He seems to be off his rocker today.

Pharma stocks have rebounded a bit given the fact that this health care fiasco will probably be watered down or scrapped altogether.
