    I'm not too worried yet. Some people are having horrible financial times and want instant fixes and Obama can't give them that. It's going to take time to get the economy back on an even footing.


    Well, the source of my worry isn't so much that there are people who are unhappy with Obama, but that it is so concentrated in the South. I'm not sure the source of this particular statistic is people who are looking for instant fixes. I'm thinking it's coming from people who really don't like Obama's social programs, and are unhappy that he's proposing to spend their tax money on things like education and health care. With also, perhaps, a dollop of good old-fashioned racism. Either way, it concerns me that there is one section of the country that is so out of step with the feelings of the rest of the country.
