THE GROFF/ELLISON POLITICAL REPORT

images21Clearly, President Obama’s biggest political weapon is not inside the Beltway – it’s outside. The latest CNN/Opinion Research Poll shows high ratings for Obama: 76% approve of the job he’s doing.  80% saying he’s doing a good job of leadership; 61% feel he’s handling his cabinet picks well despite the cabinet melee.   He’s showing a mandate on many levels, obviously helping him pass the economic stimulus bill through the Senate.

Interesting tidbit though that we’re not certain many people caught. The Congressional Budget Office said in its 1.8.09 testimony that the recession will last until the second half of 2009 – and this is without stimulus: http://tinyurl.com/95b2cy. See pg. 4.
