As Hot Air stated, this poll really should have been released last week and woulkd have truly made it the best week EVAH! However, drip, drip, drip … the bad news keeps pouring in for the Obama Administration.
It appears that the Obama White House is losing yet another battle with the American public, this time it’s Fox News. As News Busters appropriately states regarding the manner in how Obama and his minions have dealt with Fox News …
Kind of makes members of the Obama administration who regularly depict Fox as not being a real news organization look somewhat foolish, doesn’t it?
