Ideas to Reverse Obama's Slide in Polls

Obama's poll numbers keeping sinking. He is down to 41 percent favorability. But I think these numbers are bound to improve. At the current rate by sometime next year Obama will be polling at zero favorability, which means that not one person in America will well disposed toward the President.

I don't see that happening. If he scraps the current healthcare overhaul and comes up with a more modest reform plan that both Republicans and Democrats can get behind, his numbers will rebound.

Also if he captures and tortures a few terrorists his numbers will begin to soar. He may lose some of the angry soft-on-terror left but just imagine how that will play with Independents. Even some right-wing kooks who will have no choice but to give him credit.

Instead of closing Guantanamo he should it into a Terrorist Zoo, a place where vacationers can go and see real live terrorists in a safe setting.

On second thought, scrap that. Too many people will see terrorists looking forlorn and demand they be released back into the wild.
