A Summer Of Discontent?
According to the latest CNN poll, President Obama's approval rating has fallen eight points in the past month. Forty-five percent of the country approves of Obama's job performance, while 54% disapproves. Last month the numbers were essentially reversed with 54% approving and 45% disapproving.

One of the most moving statements came from Becky Gerritson,president of the Wetumpka Tea Party in Alabama.
