    It sure does describe some of you....

    Psychologists talk about “cognitive dissonance,” the tension that people feel when their thoughts are inconsistent with one another. In this case, it’s feeling as if the president is doing a pretty lousy job on the economy, but still giving him decent (though not glowing) marks when it comes to his overall presidency.

    At some point, psychologists will tell you, relief from the tension comes only when you try to restore consistency.

    I'd call it something a little more down to earth, but I believe there are those here that do suffer from it. :BangHead:

    Then there are those that beieve Obama is actually doing a good job on the economy as well. That's a malady that almost defies description and does defy comprehension.

    The news over the weekend reported that Obama's ratings with mideastern peoples is lower than Bush's when he left office.

    Maybe some folks are getting it :)
