In the eyes of the public, Congress is doing even worse than the president. Public satisfaction with the job lawmakers are doing has fallen 11 points since May, to 24 percent, according to an Associated Press-Ipsos poll. That's lower than for President Bush,

Well what do you expect? Illegals flooding in and taxing our resources, HUGE trade deficit with China, high gas prices, out of control litigation, And on and on. So I would agree, Bush - Grade F, Congress - Grade -F (even lower if it existed). They should be ashamed but we all know the answer to that.

Whats interesting is that the Dem controlled congress is crying because no benchmarks have been reached in Iraq, yet they have not reached any of their benchmarks.

Maybe, just maybe, people are getting fed up with the party politics nonsense. When do they stop being dems or repubs and start to be americans?
there is a lot to be done that doesn't need to be connected to that liberal, conservative bull-sh--. words that were made up to demonize the oppisition.

News from the Swamp: Senate pajama party
On Tuesday, Senators brought their PJs, blankets and teddy bears to the U.S. Capitol Building for an all-night “debate” on the future of the war in Iraq. Despite Democrats’ best efforts to win one for our enemies, the troop-withdrawal amendment was defeated 52-47 (it needed 60 votes). Harry Reid (D-Searchlight) says he will not pursue any more measures to withdraw troops... for now. Furthermore, when given the opportunity to propose an alternate strategy for victory, Democrats responded with nary an idea. No wonder the latest Zogby poll has Congress’ approval rating at 14 percent.
Some Democrats remain defiant, however. “I think we accomplished what we wanted to,” said Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) proudly. “We wanted to show the people who sent us and really gave us the reins of power in the Senate that we are willing to stay up through the night, work through the night to start bringing this war to a close and changing the mission of our troops.” Obviously, Boxer was so tired from staying up all night (which, apparently she thinks she was elected to do), that she didn’t realize the night was a total failure for her party.
But wait—Boxer didn’t stay up all night. “Yes, it is true that Harry [Reid] was going to have a vote every three hours, and some of the women senators appointed me... to go... beg to have about four and a half or five. But I slept in my office right down from here... curled up on my little couch. So I did get about four hours...[b]ut here’s the deal: We were up all night.” Profiles in courage.
