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

So THIS is your great Congress - even ABC says they suck

Only ABC Marks 100 Days for Dem Rule & Failure to Pass 'Six for '06' Campaign Promises
Posted by Brent Baker on April 13, 2007 - 20:17.
Back in January, ABC anchor Charles Gibson was the most triumphant over supposed Democratic achievements after taking control of Congress. But on Friday night, only Gibson's World News, of the three broadcast network evening newscasts, reported on the failure of Democrats to pass the bills they promised in their first one hundred days. (Brian Williams' lead on NBC: “A new and growing political problem for the White House: Missing e-mails.”) Gibson had trumpeted on January 4 how video of Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the House floor holding a baby while she talked to colleagues demonstrated “the ultimate in multitasking: Taking care of the children and the country” (NewsBusters post with video) and two weeks later he celebrated how House Democrats “completed their scheduled hundred hours of work in just about 42 hours, so they can put the other 58 in the bank.” (NewsBusters item)

On Friday night's World News, Gibson explained: “When Democrats took control of the Congress in January, they promised it would be a new day. They'd get things done. They even had a checklist. Well, a hundred days after taking control, we've checked the checklist.” Jake Tapper made clear how they've come up very short, pointing out how the Democrats “have no major legislative accomplishments to mark this anniversary. None of their 'Six for '06' campaign promises last year have made it to the President's desk.” Tapper listed several bills which passed in the House but have yet to be reconciled with the Democratic Senate and he noted how Democrats have “conducted twice as many oversight hearings over the Bush administration as Republicans did last year.” Tapper concluded, through the perspective of Democrats, on a hopeful note: “Democratic leaders know conflict with the White House is not enough for voters. So in the next hundred days they'll try to deliver on the promises of their first hundred days.”

Charles Gibson introduced the April 13 World News story:


“When Democrats took control of the Congress in January, they promised it would be a new day. They'd get things done. They even had a checklist. Well, a hundred days after taking control, we've checked the checklist. Here's our senior political correspondent, Jake Tapper.”

Jake Tapper: “The anniversary of the Democrats' takeover of Congress one hundred days ago was greeted with scorn today by Republicans.”

Senator Trent Lott: “Here we are, on Friday the 13th, discussing the first 100 days of the 110th Congress. They're gone, may they rest in peace.”

Tapper: “Democrats, after all, have no major legislative accomplishments to mark this anniversary. None of their 'Six for '06' campaign promises last year have made it to the President's desk.”

Senator Mitch McConnell: “The result of that of course is that nothing has been accomplished.”

Tapper: “Democrats in the House and Senate have passed bills[list on screen] allowing funding of embryonic stem cell research, increasing the minimum wage, implementing 9/11 commission recommendations and funding the Iraq war while requiring troops to start withdrawing. But Democratic leaders have yet to reconcile the House and Senate versions of these bills and send them to the White House. And while campaigning last year Democrats emphasized the laws they would pass, today they say their success should be judged differently.”

Senator Charles Schumer: “Change, accountability and oversight have become more than words, they've become our mission.”

Tapper: “Democrats conducted twice as many oversight hearings over the Bush administration as Republicans did last year -- on Iraq, the fired U.S. Attorneys, the environment, the list goes on. And this new dynamic has led to chest-thumping standoffs between the White House and Capitol Hill.”

President Bush on March 19: “They have a responsibility to get this bill to my desk without strings and without delay.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, March 28: “Calm down with the threats. There's a new Congress in town.”

Tapper: “Democratic leaders know conflict with the White House is not enough for voters. So in the next hundred days they'll try to deliver on the promises of their first hundred days. Jake Tapper, ABC News, Capitol Hill.”
