*LBN-COMMENTARY by Bill O’Reilly: Like newlyweds, newly-elected presidents traditionally enjoy a honeymoon with the American people. It’s that first month of marriage – a moon – when things are as sweet and delectable as honey. That period of affection and good will, usually lasting far longer than a month, has been an American tradition. When Barack Obama took office in January of 2009, he had the support of 67% of the American people. Tens of millions of people who had voted for John McCain were eager to see Mr. Obama succeed. What about eight years earlier, when the polarizing George W. Bush took office? Even after his long and contentious court battle with Al Gore, and despite having lost the popular vote, W’s approval rating was about 57%. Once again, most rational people were willing to give him a break and wish him well.
