Skip to comments.With B.O.'s approval now under 40%, "I'm Goin' Down" is the 8/15 Song of the Day

Despite the fact that Osama Bin Laden is still apparently dead, the approval rating for Barack Obama just sunk for the first time under 40%. According to Gallup, the approval rating for the occupier of the White House was at 39%, while the disapproval rating was at 54%. (Racism, obviously!)
There are so many possibilities for songs that could accompany this development. However, Philadelphia Jewish Culture Examiner goes back a quarter-century to the still-possibly-ironically-given-this-particular-case-titled Born in the U.S.A. album by the ponderous, humorless Bruce Springsteen, who has not released a song that will linger in any sort of canon since President Reagan was in office.

Wow...post pictures of themselves? How superficial.
Didn't you used to go by "Greg Louganis" or something on here?
I've seen pushy examibloggers before, Greg, but never one so new. You're like "The Bull" in a china shop.
He already has.
“One Step Up And Two Steps Back” and “Brilliant Disguise”.
Nine trackers/adware/etc/etc/etc, 12 cookies, including the Google mail jacker.
If the crap is on the Examiner blog that fact alone is sufficient unto judgement.
Re. “I’ve seen pushy examibloggers before, Greg, but never one so new. You’re like ‘The Bull’ in a china shop.”:
Well, be glad — current “new” guy initiation sticking-up-for-oneself aside — that I’m on your and the conservatives’ side. If I am “pushy” here, imagine what I’m like with so-called “liberals.”
As for “Greg”/”The Bull”, this article in particular made it pretty much impossible for me to do anything more under my old screen name: http://www.examiner.com/jewish-culture-in-philadelphia/pirates-swept-but-former-phillies-slugger-luzinski-impressed-by-bucs-progress (yes, I know the last few weeks have quickly made that article quite dated. ... On to a 19th consecutive losing season!)
Oh, and, for the record, while you are right that I’m relatively “pushy,” Luzinski himself is relatively easygoing in real life (and actually seems slightly trimmer than in his playing days, although it probably helps that he no longer has to wear those horrendous 1983 White Sox uniforms).
“Greg Louganis” ... good one actually. I’ve never heard anyone use that, but I’m guessing if Luzinski had played, e.g., for the Mets or Pirates, the Philly fans would have come up with that. (OK, OK, their career peaks really weren’t at the same time.)
With you on the “Two Steps Back” aspect, but where’s the “One Step Up” with b.o.?
One could also make a case for, in terms of unions, “typical dependend democRAT constituencies,” etc., “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town.”
The one step up was his inauguration.
The two steps back has been every day since then.

That’s a really strange, somewhat ambiguous reply, Larry.

Thanks for the input, Rob.
Well, as we know, the Examiner is the Typhoid Mary of blogs...
