    Even the Hopey Changey folks have given up hope in their leader.

    ConservGuy: and yet, he’s far and away better than the alternative. I really don’t feel like returning to the days of yore when I have to start calling rich guys M’lord. But that’s where GOP wants to take us.

    The Senate is controlled by Democrats. The low approval rating applies to them as well.

    Progressives: Wrong about everything and too incompetent to even recognize it.

    The fact that you can’t see that Democrats have the same goal as Republicans is astonishing. You just buy their lies better because they package it better with a little touchy feely to go along with the hopey changey.

    The difference is the reason why Obama’s approval ratings are down- 10 points above the Republicans, but still down. When you ask why, the respondent will often site his lack of success in dealing with congress. That’s like blaming Bush for Katrina. Granted, he didn’t do enough to fix the problem, but he wasn’t the actual hurricane.

    The Republicans in congress are doing their job. Their intention is to keep everything just as it is, unless they can manage to return to the “good old days” of the 19th century, before there was a middle class and when only the landed gentry were voters. And, they have a great strategy for accomplishing this.
    1. Disenfranchise everyone you possibly can, unless they are dependable Republican voters.
    2. Produce ads and media emphasis which emphasizes those politicians who are corrupt and incompetent. Paint all Democrats with the same slime. Lacking sufficient actual slime, simply make some up. This undermines the people’s trust in their government and makes them feel like helpless pawns, so they tune out the whole process and accept the status quo.
    3. Support the “job creators”, who have managed their affairs so that they are the recipients of a huge portion of the GNP, although that GNP was produced by working people, who are receiving less benefit from it every day. This gives them the money to accomplish the other two goals, and leaves everyone except the “job creators” with increasingly less money to mount a counter campaign.
    So, this is the way we are going lose the middle class and become a country inhabited only by the very rich 1%, and a 99% who are too busy working two jobs to notice

    Considering the rich are really the only ones that have benefited from the Obama recovery (while the poor and middle class have lost ground), you will not only grovel at the feet of the rich, but your benevolent overlords such as our fuhrer and his ilk.
    …but at least he is your fuhrer.

    The problem with those figures is that they are not measuring the same thing. Obama’s approval / disapproval rating is indeed a national one.
    Congress’s is a national one but a Congressman’s is local. His or her approval or disapproval rate at the national level is completely irrelevant. That is, a Congressman from Texas could care less what people in New York think about him. They won’t be electing or re-electing him. For a Congressman, only people in his own district or state matter.

    poll ratings are created by a MSM that gives Obama and the Democrats 24/7 praise and CYA “reporting” while demonizing the GOP elected by the voters! And not every poll agrees on the % ratings……in any case it is like a phone camera snapshot for one moment at most. What counts is Fair election counts…and we have been losing that war every election date.
    CPAC “Firing Line Liberal versus Conservative debate” on C-SPAN today in rerun and audience reaction proves that even the everpresent MSM cannot brainwash all the voters.
    As Ann Coulter said on “amnesty”….why should 24 million GOP voters agree to accept 30 million illegals to vote Democrat tickets????

    Yeah, and after watching the CPAC rally speakers, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Hillary will be a shoe in for President in 2016. After all, who can the Neo Cons put out there against her? Cruz, Christie, Paul? Seriously?
