The Politicization of Everything

70% of the public supports the no-fly zone, but only 50% approve of Barack Obama's handling of the situation in Libya.

In case it wasn't obvious, we're now at a point where to identify with the opposition party means even if you approve of the specific action a President takes, you say you're opposed to the action if it's attached to the President's name.

What this bodes for the body politic, I cannot say. But it surely means we are in a different era than when Reagan and Tip O'Neill had drinks together.
