New Times/CBS Poll: High gas prices, Afghanistan a mess sending Obama�s approval numbers tumbling below 50%

This must�ve been a very hard story for the NY Times writers to write.  I could just see the tears in their eyes as droplets fall on their keyboards.    
NY Times repots despite improving job growth and an extended Republican primary fight dividing his would-be opponents, President Obama is heading into the general election season on treacherous political ground, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
At a time of rising gas prices, heightened talk of war with Iran and setbacks in Afghanistan, Mr. Obama�s approval rating dropped substantially in recent weeks, the poll found, with 41 percent of respondents expressing approval of the job he is doing and 47 percent saying they disapprove � a dangerous position for any incumbent seeking re-election.
The poll provides a statistical reminder of how unsettled and unpredictable this year�s political landscape remains. Just one month ago, Mr. Obama reached a critical benchmark by winning approval from 50 percent of Times/CBS News poll respondents, his re-election prospects lifting along with confidence that the nation was finally emerging from the aftermath of the Great Recession.

President Obama is extremely vulnerable because when you consider every metric of his presidency, he�s done a very poor job as president.  But, more important than that, this is a president that has no problem shredding the Constitution in order to establish a Leftist Utopia.
