ABC News confirms what we’ve been saying all along……

…….Both sides suck!

A recent ABC News storyshows that the Democrats have lost their edge in Congress. New polls show that the approval ratings have dropped to pre-election levels, which just goes to show you, it doesn’t matter if it’s Democratic or Republican, we are surrounded by incompetent leadership. The Democratic leadership promised change, and the only change we got was we now bitch at the Democrats instead of the Republicans.   And just to prove that it’s everyone, please note that Bush’s poll numbers have not moved transversely to that of Congress.   You would think that he would gain in opinion with a Democrat controlled congress falling around him.  Instead, he’s in Jimmy Carter approval rating land. 

It is said that the first 100 days of Congress is the foundation where they set the tone. Now that May is over, and approximately 150 days of the calendar year are gone, what has this congress accomplished?

  • They wasted a ton of time and money arguing against funding the war
  • They put a ton of pork spending in their Iraq bill in order to get enough votes, this was vetoed immediately
  • They played politics, and waited till the anniversary of President Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” statement, to hand over the Iraq Bill.
  • They couldn’t get a minimum wage increase passed, one of their cornerstones of the campaign trail, and had to attach it to the war funding bill (ironically, something they opposed and basically ran all their campaigns against)
  • The Senate has now proposed this horrendous immigration bill that 3/4 of America is against

wow…..wow…..I mean, that’s a hell of couple months you guys have going. I can’t wait to see what’s next?!

The scary thing is, who the hell do you vote for anymore?  You have the same results with Democrats and Republicans, so what can you do?  That is the million dollar question, and it’s a scary one.
