They weren't at the Oscars but they look like they should have been-it was some black tie event at the WH. Wow.

For the first time since Gallup began tracking Barack Obama's presidential job approval rating on Jan. 21, fewer than 60% of Americans approve of the job he is doing as president. In Feb. 21-23 polling, only 59% of Americans give Obama a positive review.

59% isn't this about where W was at in Feb of 2000?

Thoughts on tonight's speeches:

- It's so nice to have a President that speaks intelligently again.

- Wow, I already don't like this Republican dude... He's too chipper and isn't the GOP's answer to Obama that so many have said.

That speech was amazing. I love having an intelligent, honest president who speaks truthfully to the American people. He trusts us with the truth. How novel. And I agree with April. Bobby Jindal, why are you addressing the U.S. people like we're a kindergarten class?

Oh, you silly, out-of-touch, Republicans? We're not just going to start voting for people because they're a minority. But way to wear that Conservative racism on your sleeves!

Bobby Jindal is...



I would never vote for a creationist, I wouldn't trust them with other policy decisions.

Again with the clapping at these "events." It's like being transported back to the Communist era and I always find it funny to see it.

I said the same thing to my girlfriend last night, she said well he's probably really nervous... I don't start talking like a kindergarten teacher when I'm nervous

Andrew Sullivan compared him to Kenneth Parcell from 30 Rock. I couldn't agree more!

Haha, yep. I swear, I was half paying attention and felt as if I was being talked to as if I was a wayward 7 year old.

Oh he also reminded me of Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka - "come on, kids, let's go help those people on dem rooftops!" - chipper, weird, and creepy/condesending

I called my grandparents during Jindal's response to see what they thought of Obama's speech, which they loved. The funniest part was Grandma's response as Jindal droned on "What's wrong with this guy?"

Yeah, you know all us elitist, Northern li-bruls and our regard for intellect. Intelligent politicians are too much to ask for.
