You need 60 votes for virtually anything that's controversial, and so it's not that easy to obtain the goal. I think people don't understand this. I think people think we wanted it done now. It hasn't been done now. –Sen. Dianne Feinstein D-CA
Democrats lied! A new direction they said, we will end the war they promised. Just elect us make us the majority in Congress and we will clean up the Culture of Corruption. Well now it ain’t all that easy they say now.
All those broken promises, all those lies and all the negativity that Democrats have spewed all over the political landscape like so much Global warming CO2 emissions.
Democrat leaders Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore and John Kerry can’t open their mouths without speaking in the language of personal destruction also it is their overt negativity that has put the country in such a fowl mood and brought their own approval ratings to 14 %, an all time low. Amazingly lower than the approval rating of their prime target George W. Bush.
On Fox news Sen. Dianne Feinstein was asked why Congress’ approval rating is at an all time low. Below an excerpt of the interview follows:
WALLACE: This all brings up a bigger question, and take a look at these numbers from the latest Gallup poll. Only 24 percent of Americans now approve of the job that Congress is doing, while 71 percent disapprove.
And look at this. Just 14 percent now have confidence in Congress. That's an all-time low for the Gallup poll.
Senator Feinstein, why is Congress sinking like a stone, especially, I've got to tell you, in the last few months, among Democrats?
FEINSTEIN: Well, I'll tell you, that reason, in my view, is Iraq. Most Democrats want us out of Iraq. Virtually every Democratic candidate running for president says the first thing they will do is get us out of Iraq.
When we took over the House, took over the Senate, although the Senate is just a bare majority, I think people had the expectation, not knowing the rules of the Senate, "Wow, we would be able to move this country out of Iraq." Well, the Senate works very differently.
Senator why did people have their expectations? It not because people are ignorant or stupid as you are intimating Senator, people had their expectations because Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and you Democrats told them that if Democrats were elected to the majority of the Senate you would take this country in a new direction. Remember that? Sure you do.
Pelosi promised to lead the nation in a new direction "in partnership, not in partisanship." But instead constant personal attacks against the President, his administration or any Republican that stands for Conservative values has soured political discourse in this country and produced a political partisan hatred of likes that have not been seen.
And then there was that promise made by House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (MD) who was quoting Democrats talking points, she wrote, "First, we are going to change the way things are done in Washington today by restoring civility, honesty and integrity.”
Democrats are no where near keep any of those promises!
Then there is the Poisoned tongue of Harry Reid a man who can’t say anything unless it is punctuated with “the President lied” or he mislead or Republicans are wrong or the war is lost or the surge has failed… you get the depressing picture!
The Poisoned Tongue Harry Reid
The fact is every death of an American Soldier is Democrats fault as well as the President’s if we must place blame. Democrats voted for authorization of the Iraq war and funded the Iraq war in an Democratic Controlled Congress.
If Bush lied, which it has been established that he didn’t, the Congress is lying and have lied about everything. People know it and they’re not amused by double talk or stuttering stammering Clintonesque.
Every illegal alien that is in America and every American soldier that dies in Iraq is the result of a Democrat lie to the American people.
That’s why a Democrat controlled Congress has an approval rating less than the man that they tried to destroy politically. That is also why everyone is hating on Washington and that is why no one will escape the ire of an electorate that been lied to.
