People were voting against Bush as much as they were voting FOR Obama. Times are hard, the bubbles that were supporting our economy burst, and Obama was very opportunistic in his timing. Not to mention the pass that Obama is getting from the Media. His telepromter debacle was barely aired and the Air Force 1 fly over isn't meeting the outrage that it should....can you all imagine how HUGE this story would have been if it had been done under the Bush administration? Chris Mathews would need an Oxygen mask and Keith Olberman's pants would be man-glued to his stomach.
