Default Congress' Approval Rating at a Whopping 9%

"But, but, but....it's all Bush's fault!"

Fact is, the Dems took control of congress on a platform to end the War in Iraq and lower gas prices. We are still at war, and gas prices have gone up $1.50. Nice job!

The percentage of voters who give Congress good or excellent ratings has fallen to single digits for the first time in Rasmussen Reports tracking history. This month, just 9% say Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Most voters (52%) say Congress is doing a poor job, which ties the record high in that dubious category.
The percentage of Democrats who give Congress positive ratings fell from 17% last month to 13% this month. The number of Democrats who give Congress a poor rating remained unchanged. Among Republicans, 8% give Congress good or excellent ratings, up just a point from last month. Sixty-five percent (65%) of GOP voters say Congress is doing a poor job, down a single point from last month.

Yeah considering your Empreror vetoes everything.. And it isn't like the Dem controlled Congress has a majority by much. TYypical Rep. Blame it on the other side, none of there own fault. And your boys Presidency ratings seem to be pretty low also.

Dude, you need to ease up a bit. This whole "Republicans are evil" thing is way over the top and completely insulting. You blame everything on the GOP and take absolutely no blame on your own party, yet the proof is in the pudding...they are both to blame. THAT'S what my message is...not some one-sided diatribe hate mongering against the other party as being a bunch of evil Satan worshippers who kill kitty cats.

Oh, there is no doubt we are to blame also. Your fellow conservatives need to ease up.

It's not Republicans that are evil; it is the ones who tried to wipe out the opposition that are evil, and they just happened to be Republicans. It wasn't a battle between left and right; it was a battle between far right and everyone else, including traditional conservatives, and traditional conservatives had to join up or be annihilated in the wake of the reactionary attempt to take over the country.

Left and right can get along just fine. It's the nut jobs on both ends that we have to look out for. Low approval ratings of Congress (which is 49.5% Republican) is just the dregs of the battle we've all waged against the nuts.

Woah! Exhibit A: The Clintons. The left have their hatchetmen too. Just yesterday that nut (and he IS getting a little nutty) Bill Clinton claimed that because John McCain is an ex-POW, he could "snap at any time".

Even Karl Rove has to blush at that kind of slimy smear.

Wow, WJC has lost it.

But Rove not only wouldn't blush at that kind of smear, he was behind the push polls in 2000 that said the same thing, as well as the racist attacks on McCain's adopted child.

Why aren't we drilling for oil or building new refineries? Oh wait you would have to go ask the dems that question.
