Reasoning by Analogy, Obama-Tortoise story

NY Times Op-Ed columnist, Charles M. Blow thinks Obama's the tortoise who's gonna outsmart us all, with his socialist healthcare plan. Pray, why does he feel so?

Because it seems, 'According to Gallup poll results released on Wednesday, the president’s approval rating has stopped falling and has leveled out in the low-50 percents, about the same as Ronald Reagan’s and Bill Clinton’s at this point in their presidencies (both two-termers, lest we forget).'

What's really happening? Rasmussen reports today, 'Just 41% of voters nationwide now favor the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured.'
