Just Admit it, Congress Sucks

In an article about the low low approval numbers of congress (26% in the quoted Gallup poll) and then goes on to explain that even though Congress is now controlled by the DEMS it is the Republican that have everything to worry about…..HUH? How anyone can say that this Congress is not the most ineffective and ideological in the history of the place is beyond me. While Pelosi is busy spending 16K on flowers, this congress has not accomplish anything of substance (whether it liberal initiatives or not) and continue to implode as a supposedly “unified group. The most priceless quote for the article is this one attributed to Don Wolfensberger, director of the Congress Project for the Woodrow Wilson International Center, ““People are down on Congress, and Democratic leaders are nervous,” said Don Wolfensberger, director of the Congress Project for the Woodrow Wilson International Center. “But voters are more down on Republicans than Democrats in Congress. ... It was an unrealistic expectation that Congress could change war policy.” Does this statement make any sense since Congress is controlled by DEMS. Our the American people just that ignorant of how Congress works or is the statement trying to cover all bases since it is given from a liberal think tank participant?...I think the later. This quote is followed by the contradictory statement, “Democrats never really achieved a very strong approval rating in the first place.
The Democratic Congress peaked at 37 percent in its first month, and its approval ratings have lingered between 20 percent and 30 percent for most of the year, according to Gallup polls.” Looks to me like everyone pretty much think the DEMS in Congress suck and have always sucked….Read article here,” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1207/7337.html
