    Democrats' Blues Grow Deeper in New Poll - WSJ.com

    WASHINGTON -- Less than a year after Inauguration Day, support for the Democratic Party continues to slump, amid a difficult economy and a wave of public discontent, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

    The findings underscored how dramatically the political landscape has changed during the Obama administration's first year. In January, despite the recession and financial crisis, voters expressed optimism about the future, the new president enjoyed soaring approval ratings, and congressional leaders promised to swiftly pass his ambitious agenda.

    In December's survey, for the first time, less than half of Americans approved of the job President Barack Obama was doing, marking a steeper first-year fall for this president than his recent predecessors.

    Just in case you thought this was a zero-sum game:

    No doubt, though. Bad news for Democrats. Time to accomplish something.

    They had it all and they're going to blow it trying to force their Obamacare Crap down the peoples throats and Stupid Obama bankrupting the country with his arrogance.

    If they had done this,
    Repair Health Care (don't go communist)
    Get Out Of Afghanistan
    Get Out Of Iraq
    Closed Gitmo Last March
    Shut Al Gore Up
    Put Somebody In Charge Of The Economy (not stupid obama)
    Shown Us A Birth Certificate
    Deported Aunt Zucchini

    If they had done these things even Glenn Beck would be supporting them.

    WHAT THEY ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DOING NOW IS CALLED "DIGGING ONES OWN GRAVE"

    As a supporter of Obama, and the progressive agenda...I, personally, have soured on these people who do nothing.



    after 8 years of a neo-conservative agenda being shoved down my throat with a side of freedom fries, I thought we were getting some change...for a change.



    Yet, its the same old spine-less democrats and the same old robotic republicans preaching the same old shizzz...



    so YES, I am souring on them...count me IN.


    democrats need to be more like republicans when it comes to pushing through policy. I GUARANTEE you that if McCain won, and had a republican majority...we'd have more tax cuts, and more war....


    Dear Democrats,

    Quit being b!tchz!

    Love,
    Holy Diver

    I'll go for a third party, the Democrats are a bunch of left wing screwballs, the Republicans are a bunch of right wing Wimps.

    The problem is the third party will be made up of Politicians and Politicians are the Scum of the earth.

    Now What.........:confused:

    democrat are suckers for the inspirational speech crap. Republicans may be greedy but greed is good because it makes people work harder through incentive. Obama has taken incentive away so why bother putting in extra effort. Extra effort means you pay more taxes and that makes patters happy because he wants more taxes.

    Substitute the word "ambition" for "greed" and Gordon Gekko's famous speech from that movie was 100% right on. "The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed -- for lack of a better word -- is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms -- greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge -- has marked the upward surge of mankind."

    All he did was rephrase Adam Smith's "Individual ambition serves the common good" which is 100% right on as well.

    This is why immigrants came to this country ... to prosper ... not to be taxed to support others who have little incentive to improve their life beyond having extra kids to get extra welfare money.
    Ambition ... the democrats hate that word but prosper from it as they wage class warfare.
