Yes, I said Republican Congress. It is less popular than the dreaded tax folks and the political ideology that is a direct opposite to democracy. In this CBS rating, the IRS comes in at a colossal 40 percent, communism at 11 percent, the lowly Congress at 9 percent. Only Fidel Castro ranks lower at 5 percent. These ratings are taken by major polling services like Gallup and Rasmussen, and reflect the growing feeling that the people in Washington must be replaced in 2012.
In a release from CBS of the approval rating, it is clear that the GOP is continuing to block everything that would help jump-start the economy because they want the President to fail. It is a blockade Barack Obama has been up against since his inauguration, conceived by a deranged Tea Party and implemented by fanatics like Eric Cantor, (R-VA) House Majority Leader with help from House Speaker, Rep. John Boehner and Sen. Minority leader, Rep. Mitch McConnell.
According to the Addicting Info site, this is what the Republican Congress has done: “…spent their time passing anti-women bills, bills against birth control and contraceptives, anti-abortion bills, bills declaring pizza a vegetable, bills re-affirming ‘In God We Trust,’ as the national motto, anti-tax bills, anti-environmental bills.” There is more but just as ludicrous.
This gang of brainless GOP bullies has frittered away three years trying to convince the American public to hate President Obama and vote him out of office next November. What they have accomplished is raising the ire of a majority of the voting public, including many Republicans and a number of Independents. The country is fed up with their shenanigans and they’re not going to take it anymore. The question is how to make sure voters remember this subterfuge on November 6, 2012.
Maybe it would help to illustrate more cases where the unfavorable is favored over the Republican Congress. The airlines, which have raised rates and curtailed benefits for several years now comes in at 29 percent. Keep in mind now Congress is at 9 percent. Banks, one of the most hated institutions and the target of the Occupy movement rank 23 percent. The oil and gas industry, often accused of raising the price of gasoline just to improve their bottom line, 20 percent. And Hugo Chavez, Pres. of Venezuela, ties Congress at 9 percent.
The GOP Congress has done absolutely nothing to create jobs, improve the foreclosure crisis, and they want to repeal the health care bill that has already helped many needy Americans. Stephen Foster of Addicting Info says, “Hell, Republicans have turned Congress into such a joke that even King George III was more popular during the Revolutionary War.” He was the British monarch during the American Revolution, his favorability coming in between 15 and 20 percent.
I cannot remember a time in my life where the hallowed halls of Congress have been looked on with such contempt for the people who are supposed to be running our country but yet have let a small group of wacko radicals dictate their actions. I would be talking about the Tea Party, of course, and until the GOP breaks the umbilical cord with these certifiable maniacs, there will be no breakthrough in Washington.
