Incidentally, President Obama had a 39% approval rating on Sunday via the last three-day Gallup poll, which is his lowest grade so far and was noted to be due to the recent S&P credit downgrade.

“The President knows we must do everything we can to promote economic growth, restore confidence in our nation’s future and enhance the sense of optimism for future generations.” The White House said.
