To Pelosi and Reid..Wake up and smell the coffee you fools!

Alternet has a great read up this morning. Its entitled: “How the Democrats blew it in only Eight Months”. The author points out how the Democratically-controlled Congress now has a lower opinion rating than the worst times for the Republicans last year:

Thanks to the Dems’ inaction on Iraq and compliance with Bush on the FISA bill, the Democratic-controlled Congress now has a “confidence” rating of 14 percent, the lowest since Gallup started asking the question in 1973 and five points lower than Republicans scored last year.

Ain’t that some news? Sure is..but the real question is..will Pelosi and Reid pay attention? Will these asshats actually turn the ship around and start paying attention to what the majority of American’s want? I will leave you with the last paragraph of the article which asks a very important question:

A war people hate, Gitmo, Bush’s police-state executive orders of July 17 — the Democrats have signed the White House dance card on all of them. And guess what? Just as their poll numbers are going down, Bush’s are going up, by five points in Gallup from early July. People are beginning to think the surge is working, courtesy of the New York Times. So are we better or worse off since the Democrats won back Congress?

About Dusty, hells most vocal bitch

I am a..brown Cali bitch that is quite the opinionated,political, pain-in-the-ass, in your face kinda girl that also loves baseball and music to a fault. Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.--Albert Einstein-*

  1. Dusty, I agree that they have blown a lot of their opportunities. Almost all the Dems in the House who voted for the Bush spy bill were Blue Dogs, and Pelosi has already called for an overhaul of that as soon as Congress returns.

  2. My dear TomCat..They have to keep pushing the same bills..over and over..if nothing gets passed, so fucking be it!Then people will learn the art of compromise..because they aren’t doing that now.

  3. Pelosi will never redo the spy bill, it will be close to election season and her spine can’t take that pressure.The entire lot of them are spineless. Jim Webb was supposed to be tough, yet he voted to fund the war, voted for Fisa.Find a Democrat with spine and run him/her for President.I imagine the slate would stay blank. There aren’t any!

  4. Check out this post by Alicia that asks a very good question:< HREF="" REL="nofollow">Last Left Turn Before Hooterville<>

  5. They have blown it in large part due to the successful blocking and then bragging about it by the Repugs. I am friggen stunned that the childish idiots continue to get away with it when America is in so much trouble. and these idiots just continue to play their political games. The whole inept lot of them should go in 2008. You know, when things are going good everyone looks good. You don’t see what a person is made of until things go wrong and they have to perform. Sadly we have seen that none of our leaders starting from the top know how to perform and are wholly inadequate. We see what they are made of and all I see is shit. The Repugs have succeeded in making Dems look as bad as them but I just hope people see what is happening and make Repugs pay in 2008.

  6. well, I was going to try and comment and sound wise, but Larry and Tomcat both beat me to the punch…so I will just have to sit and listen to the LilFeet and Eric C…..geez you have great selection here…if we ever have a Blogger Convention- you have to be DJ….period…( Cindy Sheehan is running right?…..Pelosi needs to be made to look like the fool that she is…)

  7. Everyone here has a level of outrage and I understand and support that. My problem is..we must vote these shills out of office next time around..otherwise..the liberal voice will be silenced and a footnote in our country’s history.

  8. It’s unfortunate timing for the Dems to look bad. Of course no timing would be good timing for that! Joe Bonamassa isn’t at the BBF, too bad as I’d like to hear him live.

  9. it’s crazy and i am so paranoid i’m not sure what’s true anymore, except that our country seems to be almost irrevocably doomed to be run by incompetents and fools who somehow think that they can become exempt from living on the same planet as the rest of us.will a disastrous 3d world war not affect them? will a climate so fucked as to be unlivable not affect them as well? will an economic meltdown due to our reckless monetary policy not also affect them? to some degree i realize that the vastly wealthy are exempt from much that affects the rest of us. but in the end, we will all be doomed and i keep thinking these fucking idiots, what is wrong with them that they cannot see the danger.

  10. PBS..Joe B is one fine blues player/singer. The Dem’s haven’t been our friends since the DLC came into being. BaB..So many of us realize the inherent dangers yet the rich deny them..They must only think of themselves and not their offspring is the only thing I can come up with.

  11. Have you noticed that the ones we all fought so hard for in the 11/06 elections are the ones that are sucking bush’s ass? Webb, Klobuchar…In all fairness, it’s not all of the Dems and they need 66% to get anything done with only a 51% majority. BUT, AT LEAST TRY!

  12. Like I have said many times Chuck..keep sending the same damn bills and if they don’t pass, send them again. Its called compromise and unless and until the President and his lock-step marching Republicans can learn to compromise..nothing will get passed.
