    what, you can't handle math that is patterned after Republican math?


    And still no Cons, Republicans have any rational reason for GOP having such a low approval rating....other than some con trying to throw the lame ass, old and full of BS--- MSM card. Which is hardly rational. Considering that people can tune into Left wing of MSM or Right of MSM. So save your lame MSM excuse for other whining cons who prefer to not look into the mirror to see why GOP is seen as truly poor in terms of job performance and job approval.

    Actually I will own up that NEITHER SIDE has been doing an effective job, and it's not just a recent problem. BOTH sides of Congress for years have been just showing up to collect paychecks and see who can do the least and yell the loudest. The abysmal numbers are a reflection not really of the Dems or the Pubs, but an indictment on Congress as a whole and how ineffective BOTH sides have been in getting anything done. It's an indictment on the pervasive attitude of BOTH sides that to serve in Congress makes them subservient only to their own whims, pork and pet projects and not to the people that elected them. Which leads to greater voter apathy and, frankly, neither side seems to care anything about the issues until just before the elections.

    However, that Obama's numbers are still about twice of the Congressional GOP doesn't mean much because it's still a level of incompetence from the Top on Down that is driving this country off a cliff and fast. They may be double, but if those are numbers people are proud off, then that's a problem. No one should be proud or pointing with any amount of positivity to these numbers.

    Old, you seem to have a chip on your shoulder for some reason, don't know why? Boy you are combative. Maybe you ought to get it looked at? Do it quickly though before some bureaucrat has the decision making powers if ACA is actually implemented.

    This poll and thread is an example of bragging about the tallest midget.

    No, it's more like pointing out the absurdity of someone who is 2' 4" tall making fun of someone for being short at 4' 4" tall.

    Saying that Obama's approval rating is higher than that of congress is like saying that one is not quite as terrible as the other.

    'I hate Congress, but I love my Congressman' is refrain that is worn with the telling. Why anyone tries to make political hay out of this kind of polling is beyond me.

    Reality alert!

    Congress sucks, the House sucks, and just so I don't leave anyone out, the President sucks!

    None of them are working for us or doing what's best for us!

    There are some in either body that are trying, but most are looking out for their own asses!

    looks like the most recent posts have reality----namely that POTUS and congress(Dem and GOP members) are unpopular in terms of job approval and approval in general.

    the previous poster described it well when he referred to cons bashing Obama approval rating to be like a 2'4" midget making fun of a 4'4" person being short.

    ------

    funny how cons start mocking polls when poll results point out that Obama approval much higher than congressional GOP's. As well as Dems having approval rating higher than Congressional GOP.

    simply put...I'll keep posting GOP approval ratings every time I see a con thread attacking Obama approval ratings.

    No, you and your brethren are bragging that the 4'4" person is taller than the 2'4" person. i.e. tallest midget.

    True, obstructionism is common in politics, but just because Obama and his cheerleader media says it doesn't make it so.

    In Obama's first two years he had a Democrat congress and passed everything he wanted, and those policies have failed miserably... leaving millions more out of work, or on welfare, a sabotaged health care system, and $7 trillion more dollars on debt... with nothing to show for it except a higher cost of living, higher taxes, and people making less money.

    When the 2010 mid-terms came along, the American People spoke, and they voted out Democrats in a massive, unprecedented wave that was the Democrats' worst loss at the polls in about 70 years.

    Calling Republicans "obstructionists" when they are, for the most case, doing what they were elected by the American People to do (i.e., challenge Obama's failed policies), isn't exactly correct.

    What is even more sad is that you started this thread to really do nothing else but cheer for Obama, a socialist who hates our military, hates our Constitution, and is an outright corrupt liar.

    I have to ask this.....where were you during the Bush administration?

    It bothers me when folks say stuff like this when they were either silent or justified the policies of the Bush administration.

    Many of the policies complained about today were in effect or begun during the Bush administration or during prior administrations......so why the outrage now?

    This is somewhat true, Obama's administration has embraced and expanded these policies.

    It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

    What has Obama changed from Bush's administration.
    Tax increases.
    Has managed to start up the cold war with Russia.
    Lost American respect, for what it was, in the mideast.
    The war in Iraq was already winding down, no change
    Greatly increased the deficit.
    Increased spying on the public and is totally screwing up the economy, emoloyment and health care.

    in this thread---you are quite correct...

    in con threads bashing Obama over approval ratings the cons doing the bashing are like ------- 2'4" midgets acting as if they are 6'2" while calling a 4'2" person a midget

    simply put
    Obama/Dems have higher approval ratings than GOP. And cons are simply trying to blow smoke in peoples' faces in regard to that FACT.
