Alternet has a great read up this morning. Its entitled: "How the Democrats blew it in only Eight Months". The author points out how the Democratically-controlled Congress now has a lower opinion rating than the worst times for the Republicans last year:
Thanks to the Dems' inaction on Iraq and compliance with Bush on the FISA bill, the Democratic-controlled Congress now has a "confidence" rating of 14 percent, the lowest since Gallup started asking the question in 1973 and five points lower than Republicans scored last year.
Ain't that some news? Sure is..but the real question is..will Pelosi and Reid pay attention? Will these asshats actually turn the ship around and start paying attention to what the majority of American's want? I will leave you with the last paragraph of the article which asks a very important question:
A war people hate, Gitmo, Bush's police-state executive orders of July 17 -- the Democrats have signed the White House dance card on all of them. And guess what? Just as their poll numbers are going down, Bush's are going up, by five points in Gallup from early July. People are beginning to think the surge is working, courtesy of the New York Times. So are we better or worse off since the Democrats won back Congress?
