"Obama may be the first U.S. president to lack faith in our special history, our special spirit and our special mission in the world." (Emphasis mine.)

And this just in . . . 

"He's trying to Europeanize us, and the Europeans are going the other way," continues Ferlic, a former Democratic campaign donor who plans to vote Republican this year. "The entire American spirit is being broken."  (Emphasis mine.)

He is a weird duck. It's hard to imagine him getting a second term.

Way too early too tell. Reagan's numbers were below this at the same point in his 1st term, but he won a 2nd in a landslide. However, Reagan's policies were pro-growth. Obama's are anything but. We're in uncharted waters, historically speaking with the economy as well as other parts of the American "structure." It will be fascinating to see how Obama "governs" after November when he faces a hostile Republican majority in, potentially, both houses of Congress.
