    I really have to wonder how any Democrat could possibly approve of the job Congress is doing. That slice of the pie certainly isn't paying attention!

    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

      as per usual.


      What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.

        to find 10% approval by Democrats. To find out that more democrats approve of the job Congress is doing than repubs or independents is truly stunning. Those people are simply not paying attention or their televisions are spending to much time on Fox. I really find it almost impossible to believe!

      Representative, and not necessarily all of Congress or even half of it.  Or perhaps an extra 3% on the Democratic side is more optimistic and/or forgiving than Republicans.

      When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
