    First San Fran nan's personal approval numbers take a hit - now the Dem controlled Congress numbers show a decline

    Could it be the Dems have broken their promises to the voters?

    Congress Job Approval Back Down Again This Month
    January and February uptick appears to have dissipated

    by Frank Newport

    GALLUP NEWS SERVICE

    PRINCETON, NJ -- The modest uptick in approval of the job being done by Congress has dissipated for the most part after only two months. Congress job approval had risen over the last two months after the Democrats took over control of Congress in early January -- fueled in large part by a jump in approval among rank and file Democrats. This month, however, Congress job approval is back down to levels quite similar to where it was in 2006. Democrats have lost a good deal of the positivity exhibited in the first two months of the year after their party took over.

    According to Gallup's monthly update on job approval of Congress -- in a March 11-14, 2007, national poll -- 28% of Americans approve of the job being done by Congress and 64% disapprove. This marks a substantial change from January and February, with approval down nine points and disapproval up nine points.

    Or it could be, now Pelosi and Lantos are talking about skipping off to visit Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    Speaker Pelosi says she finds Ahmadinejad repulsive, but she still thinks it's important to talk to him - but will not talk to Pres Bush

    Even more interesting than this new step in the shadow Presidency is a piece of legislation Rep. Lantos is now boasting about.

    It seems, "with the Speaker's support", he has co-sponsored legislation that would create a "nuclear fuel bank". The legislation calls for the U.S. to make available to all countries (including Iran), "nuclear fuel". Of course, it's designated for peaceful purposes under international oversight. (insert eyeroll here) Because, we're misplacing billions of dollars and equipment all over the world that are being filtered into terrorist hands - of course, we should trust an idea that basically creates an international nuclear welfare society.

    You don't really need a poll to do that.

    Sure you do. It is also fun NOT to watch the liberal media tell the folks about this poll, like they do about every poll about Pres Bush's numbers
