After Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the "Red Line" at Syria, getting played like a fiddle by Vladimir Putin, newly freed Iraq abandoned to fend for itself, the NSA snooping, the IRS scandal, and Obamacare, to name the most notorious Obama failures, there are still 44% of likely voters, according to Rasmussen, who approve of President Obama's job performance and remarkably 21% who "strongly approve." Astonishing.
