Some GOOD News from a Change
The rest of the poll is mostly bad news -- Obama's approval rate remains steady is the headline -- but good news on one front.
By more than 3-to-1 Americans think it is time for the Obama administration to start taking responsibility (64 percent) instead of continuing to blame the Bush administration for mistakes (21 percent).
Good news, politically at least, because assuming that Obama fails (and the math is pretty emphatic that he must), the public has little appetite for further dog-ate-my-homework excuses.
