Trouble for Obama as Americans give him poor marks on immigration and handling the economy, which Mitt Romney should take advantage of, by showing us how he will fix the problems, not giving vague responses.
GALLUP — Three months before the election, President Barack Obama gets good marks from Americans for his handling of terrorism, fair marks for education and foreign affairs, but poor marks on immigration and three big economic issues: the federal budget deficit, creating jobs, and the economy generally.
It’s a sad commentary that he trails prior two-term presidents, including George W. Bush, under whose watch the bottom fell out of the bucket. I have taken a long and hard look at the Obama administration and have come to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton must be saying, told you so. I would have much preferred her to be that person who takes the 3 a.m. phone call. I have nothing against President Obama as a person and I see him as the lesser of two evils with Mitt Romney, who can’t give concrete answers on the solutions he is proposing, rather than throwing a Hail Mary pass in the end zone.
