    Americans' assessment of Congress has hit a new low,with 13% saying they approve of the way Congress is handling its job. The 83% disapproval rating is also the worst Gallup has measured in more than 30 years of tracking Congressional Job Performance. More from Gallup...

    Ever notice that the more gridlock there is, the more Congress' ratings go down. In other words, Congress should stop all the politcal bickering, put their heads together and start working things out in a real bi-partisan format. It worked for Reagan and Clinton and look at the positive results.

    I'm not the least bit surprised.

    Hell. I'm still waiting for Pelosi to drain the damned swamp.

    I actually just stopped watching the news all together because I really couldn't care less what meaningless bullshit they put forward and argue about. I check the Korea situation every other day online, and that's about it. I'll start re-watching this congress come January... just to see if these "tea partiers" are really about shit or if I'm just going to have to move to Egypt somewhere and buy a camel before the west collapses. We shall see.

    It's a fact that the public is really pissed at both parties and their partisan bullshit.
    A small percentage of the public is far right or far left with a majority of Americans being in the middle somewhere (and they shift with the times and the issues).
    The far left pushed their agenda since 2007 and see what that got them. If the far right controls the agenda and rams it though, what happened to the in 2010 to the Dems will happened to the GOP,,bank on it.
