"I don't know what it means, but Obama's job approval numbers are jumping...What could be driving the president’s numbers upward? Ultimately, I have no idea. Feel free to offer to your own."
Okay, I will. It's really pretty simple after all. The Republcans have spent the last eight years and God only knows how many billion dollars on a campaign of smears, lies and outright sabotage directed solely at Obama. Now, they have a new target, and the short-memoried, ignorant voters are already beginning to forget the endless attacks, as the Republican destruction machine focuses on Hillary.
That's it. Do you have one shred of doubt that this is the explanation of this phenomenon? How can seemingly intelligent people be so clueless?
