So it turns out that P.T. Barnum didn't have it exactly right; you can actually fool most of the people, most of the time - as proven by this failure's re-election. No matter what kind of lies and bull$h-t you're selling, if you dress it up with enough oratorical flourishes the drones will buy it! And now President Fraud, the Hypocrite-in-Chief, get to go on TV and lie to a nationwide audience. Again. Perhaps a new Guiness record for longest continuous lie will be set tonight - although the long-winded Clinton's record will be tough to beat. I'll be sure to miss it. Again.

As President Obama prepares to deliver the first State of the Union Address of his second term, his job approval ratings appear to be reverting to their medicore norm.  Both CNN's "poll of polls" and an early February survey from Quinippiac show Obama dipping back into the 40s, suggesting that his brief inaugural afterglow is fading:

Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president?

Overall Approve: 46 percent
Overall Disapprove: 45 percent

Independents: 40/47...
