Back to throwing judgement again? I'm glad some things never change.

I'm only responding to this because I'm tired of your insults- you would also think there is something more productive YOU could do than that. Does it make you feel superior or something to come in here with such pronouncements?

By coming in here and making that statement, you're putting yourself on the same level.

You don't have to call it like you see it. Just ignore it.

I don't care if you weren't, and you have no right to tell me to "prattle along elsewhere". Normally I just ignore you but I'm sick of this stuff (nice word).

You see Dave, FYM is for discussion and debate about current events, politics, religion, etc. Not for discussion (not really "discussion", more like high horsed pronouncements of the rude and condescending variety) of what you think of how people here are spending their time "camping out here day in and day out". It isn't the first time you've done it either, it's become a pattern. Do that in private if that's what floats your boat, but it doesn't belong here and is becoming trolling if it isn't already.

Republicans abandoning Bush
NBC/WSJ poll: President’s, Congress’ ratings drop to lowest levels ever
By Mark Murray
Deputy political director
NBC News
Updated: 8:05 p.m. ET June 13, 2007

WASHINGTON - As President Bush attempts to revive the controversial immigration reform bill he supports, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that Republicans are abandoning the president, which has dropped his job-approval rating below 30 percent -- his lowest mark ever in the survey.

But he isn’t the only one whose support is on the decline in the poll. Congress’ approval rating has plummeted eight points, bringing it below even Bush’s. And just one in five believe the country is on the right track, which is the lowest number on this question in nearly 15 years.

Republican pollster Neil Newhouse, who conducted the survey with Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart, argues that these numbers have crossed below the political “Mendoza line,” referring to the feeble .200 batting-average mark in baseball. “With the mood of the country dropping below 20, and the president’s approval below 30, both are candidates for a sort of political Mendoza line,” he says.

In the poll, Bush’s approval rating is at just 29 percent. It’s a drop of six points since April, and it represents his lowest mark ever on this question in the NBC/Journal poll.

Democratic pollster Jay Campbell, who works with Hart, attributes this decline to Republicans. Back in April, 75 percent of Republicans approved of Bush’s job performance, compared with 21 percent who disapproved. Now, only 62 percent of Republican approve, versus 32 percent who disapprove.

This drop comes as Bush tries to resuscitate the comprehensive immigration reform bill in the U.S. Senate, which has angered many Americans -- particularly conservatives -- because they believe its provisions allowing for a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants amount to “amnesty.” Bush and other supporters of the legislation dispute that charge.

“This is a highly emotional issue,” Bush said of the legislation while visiting Capitol Hill on Tuesday. “But those of us standing here believe now is the time to move a comprehensive bill that enforces our borders and has good workplace enforcement, that doesn't grant automatic citizenship, that addresses this problem in a comprehensive way.”

Campbell speculates that the debate over the Senate immigration bill -- and the passions it has stirred -- is largely responsible for the decline in GOP support for Bush. “It seems like a pretty good guess that a large portion of the drop is immigration related,” he says.

Also in the poll, only 23 percent approve of the job that Congress is doing, a decline of eight points since April. That number is within striking distance of the 16-percent rating Congress held in October 2006, just before Republicans lost control of both the Senate and House in last year’s midterms.

While Campbell says that the low approval rating reflects “poorly on the Democratic leadership” in Congress, he wouldn’t hit the panic just yet if he were Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. “If these numbers were popping up six months, eight months from now, then I’d be concerned.”

Furthermore, the survey -- which was taken of 1,008 adults from June 8-11, and which has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points -- shows that just 19 percent believe the country is headed in the right direction. That’s the lowest number on that question in nearly 15 years.

By comparison, a whopping 68 percent think the country is on the wrong track.

Bush's rating is in fact lower than that. The problem is that there has been a large exodus from the Republican party and those people largely consider themselves to be Independents. But the polls are still relying on old ratios and so they're including a set proportion of "Republicans" which is deceptive, since the ones who haven't yet run from the party are the true die-hard base.

The Congress also fully deserves their low rating for being pathetic and completely lacking any kind of courage. You have a president that means nothing anymore and you are still afraid of making a principled stand. So, you belong in the 20s right alongside him. Enjoy!

And congress's is even lower! They duped the public into voting them in and believing they'd do something and they totally caved. I knew it all along, but I'm sorry for those of you who were fooled and actually celebrated when they won. They used the unpopularity of the war to get in, that's all they wanted. Their promises to you mean nothing.

I hate to say it but these days I'm about as disillusioned as you are when it comes to politicians.

I hate to say it, but good! More people need to see through the lies and trickery and let them all know we will no longer accept the status quo that does no good for the country or the people!

We desperately need to make a statement. As long as people continue to vote for the 'lesser of evils' one of them will always be in there, and things will never change.
