MSM-in the throws of climax; the Public-eh....just not that into you.

To cap off this week in news it looks as though the MSM can't understand why, as the President achieves legislative goal after legislative goal, the American people aren't orgasmic for Obama's achievements.
“An earthquake hits Washington,” fill-in ABC anchor David Muir announced Friday night as he gushed that “it comes as the President wraps up a seismic week.” He soon noted how the First Family began a brief vacation in Maine which, he proposed, “comes after the President marked quite a week in Washington. The oil, for now, is finally stopped, and on the political front, his financial reform package finally passed.” He pleaded: “So why such low poll numbers?”
Over “Getting His Due?” on screen, Jake Tapper related how “some Democrats have been grumbling that the public is not giving the President enough credit for all he's accomplished in such a short time.”

The day before, NBC's Chuck Todd empathized with the frustration Obama must be experiencing given legislative victories “comparable to any President in history.” Friday's Hardball on MSNBC carried the full question to Obama that Todd had posed 24 hours earlier in Michigan, but was cut short on Thursday's NBC Nightly News and not run on Friday's Today:

That must be frustrating. You've had an enormous amount of legislative victories – it's comparable to any President in history. It has not translated into political capital with the public. Honestly, are you frustrated by that?
Could it be this Administrations poll numbers have been on a cataclysmic downward spiral and getting worse because the American people don't like what they're seeing? Could it be that all the promises of how awesome stuff was going to be once passed hasn't panned out? Could it be that the American people are waking up to the truth of what this Presidents policies are going to do to this country?
