It's exactly that mindset that is the problem in our society.
As long as we only expect our representatives to be better than the other guys, that's all we'll get.
Why can't we simply look at his approval ratings on their own merits as a reflection of how well he's doing HIS job?
But hey....as long as he's doing better than those damned Republicans we can guarantee to keep Democrats in power.
After all, that's REALLY what's most important, right?
