    Bummer they don't want to fix the mess they made. But it does explain why the wingnuts have been so desperately spewing:

    Personally I think it was a poor statement and stance to have

    The goal should be to show that as conservatives they will not support these shit policies whatsoever.. and that when they fail, that they would have the track record of being against these stupid things all along

    Approval numbers don't mean shit.. and why this guy would focus on that is beyond me

    They are focused on approval numbers because that is what speaks to the 2010 midterm elections. They don't care about this country....

    and they may not support Obama's policies, but they haven't offered any alternatives aside from the ones that led to this mess in the first place.

    The GOP isn't conservative... they are reactionaries and have been for at least the last ten to twelve years, if not longer.

    Give me a break jill.. the DEMs are only worried about that shit too... they are not concerned about the country... as evidenced by what they are trying to pass... it is about control

    Alternatives have been offered... legit ones... but as stated, the DEMs want power and bigger government controls... and ones like you buy into it hook, line and sinker... and you refuse to look at and acknowledge the many things that HELPED us to be where we are economically... and you refuse to admit that #1 that it is not all government's fault and #2 that more government meddling and power is not the answer

    Because he's a more a party partisan, than an american patriot, of course.

    All that matters to these partisans is the next election.

    What happens to America or Americans is merely of collatoral interest to partisans.

    Is that similar to the Dems focusing on Rush Limbaugh to divert people's attention from the policies they are trying to enact?

    don't shoot the messenger....

    as far as I can tell, they've offered nothing beyond what screwed everything up for the last eight years. even people like pat buchanan acknowledge that.

    I don't believe it's "government's fault"... I do believe that it is largely (though not solely) the fault of the incompetents who ran the government for the last eight years.

    Yes, what solution have they offered DD? Cut taxes is about the only one I've heard.
