MATT COOPER HAS A THEORY on why Obama's polls are slipping:
[I]t's the spending and the modest success it seems to have brought in stopping the total collapse of the banking and financial system. If the economy felt like it was in the same free fall that it was a few months ago, he'd be doing better because there'd be less questioning of government spending and more calls to pour everything on the fire. But with the respite in the fall comes the freedom to question spending. Or, to put it another way: The firemen saved your house but now you're pissed off about all the water damage in the den.
So he's less popular because he's somewhat suceeding. When people said this about Bush and the war on terror and Iraq, people were saying it was bullshit by neocons...
