Barack Obama: Still popular

The Washington Post and New York Times both released polls today showing broad support of both the President and his economic policies. Now, none of this will matter in four years if the economy is still terrible and Obama is seen as being ineffective in aiding it... but if you're looking for evidence that GOP is resurgent and Obama is facing a "A nation of Santelli's", you won't find it here.

I'm wishing there was something more interesting to write about this morning, but frankly I'm not seeing it. Oh well.

UPDATE: I seem to have gotten myself so distracted by French comfort food that I forgot there was a big Obama speech tonight... a "rookie equivalent of a State of the Union Address" says Joe Klein. I'll be interested to see the speech and talking head reaction to it, given the support noted above.
