As President Barack Obama is providing America with a muddled message as to why the US is at war with Libya, what our mission is and what is the end game … back at home only 31% of Americans give him markets on the economy. Only 26% of those not affiliated with either party rate the president’s handling of the economy as good or excellent. To make matters even worse for Barack Obama, only 22% of likely voters think that the country is heading in the right direction as compared to 72% of voters the country is heading down the wrong track.
