Despite all the howling from the conservatives, Pres. Obama is as popular as he was before the massive agit-prop attack and that must be killing the Baggers.
Poll: Obama at 53 percent approval after week of controversies
By Meghashyam Mali - 05/19/13 09:22 AM ET

A new poll shows a majority approving of President Obama's job performance after a week where his administration faced a tough trio of controversies.

A CNN/ORC poll released Sunday morning shows 53 percent approve of the president, with 45 percent disapproving. Obama held a 51 percent approval in the last CNN poll conducted in early April.

Of course, their incompetence has provided cover for the real failings of the Obama Administation, as Conor Freidersdorf explains: (h/t Ken Hoop)
Has he ordered the assassination of any American citizens in secret without due process? Did he kill any of their teenage kids without ever explaining how or why that happened? 
Has he refused to reveal even the legal reasoning he used to conclude his targeted killing program is lawful?
Has he waged an unprecedented war on whistleblowers?
Has he spied on millions of innocent Americans without a warrant or probable cause?
Does he automatically count dead military-aged males killed by U.S. drones as "militants"?
Did he "sign a bill that enshrines in law the previously merely alleged executive power of indefinite detention without trial of terror suspects"?

Well, to call it a victory of any kind means a tacit assumption that
a militant/activist left and anti-Elite right (in cohesion or not) couldn't perform better in a neocon-right dominated government/presidency, by way of reaction, resistance etc,that is.
