It's the economy and his focus on healthcare that is doing it I bet. IMHO

"Lagrange Point", sheesh, do you have the vaguest clue how incredibly ignorant that sounds?

Read through all of his other posts, then ask yourself that question again. You'll have your answer.

Honestly, if the effort people like Full of Win, IntheNet, and others take to show how much they believe Obama is failing actually went to something positive, we'd be in a much better place financially, socially, and physically.

Pathetic, isn't it?

BL.

What do you mean, I thought it was the point where the force exerted by two bodies is equal. For example, at the point between Earth and the moon, the force of the moons gravity is equal to the force of the Earths gravity.

Instead of celestial bodies, I was using Approval and Disapproval.

Sounded cool to me.

I'm not sure it even makes sense, it means the equilibrium point between two gravitational fields. I'm not sure how that applies to Obama.
He is at the point in this poll where the force of approval is the same as the force of disapproval.

I just used the concept of approval and disapproval, rather then force of gravity.

There are five Lagrange points for each pair of bodies. Which one has Obama reached?

Avoid similes and metaphors. So far, 84% of this thread is devoted to your apparent misuse of a comparison phrase.

Because there is nothing else of significance to discuss.

A Lagrange point is not where the force is equal, it is where they balance. At least two, L2 and L3 if I remember right, are not actually between bodies. The analogy is inapt. But we expect so much from an avatar that is such high art.

Agreed. His/her premise should - dare I say must - be ignored for his/her failure to use an appropriate literary tool. Nothing to see here. Move along.

I'm impressed with the detailed discussion of celestial mechanics in this thread. I find all other aspects of it silly, but I am impressed with the talk of equipotential points. :)

Who the hell did they survey for that? :confused: I couldn't even think of a group to associate them with because of how universally respected Washington was, even in his own time.

Although, it did bring me upon an interesting Wiki article. Some of those popular opinion poll results are whacky.
