Republicans abandoning Bush
NBC/WSJ poll: Presidentís, Congressí ratings drop to lowest levels ever
By Mark Murray
Deputy political director
NBC News
Updated: 4:30 p.m. MT June 13, 2007

WASHINGTON - As President Bush attempts to revive the controversial immigration reform bill he supports, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that Republicans are abandoning the president, which has dropped his job-approval rating below 30 percent -- his lowest mark ever in the survey...


Is ANYONE suprised that Bush's #s are so low?? Amnesty and selling out America to special interests and to Mexican government interests is driving people insane with anger!!

Nope, I'm not surprized. I can only hope that it works. Keep up the "grassroots movement"!

Fifteen years ago, eh? Gee, that would be the last time the Republicans had had their hands on the controls for an extended period of time. Sounds like all Republicans do is put this country on the wrong track. Maybe we should learn our lesson and just stop electing them...

Maybe we should pull our collective political capitol out of our collective a**es and start looking at candidates who will do what is right for this country instead of pushing through their own agenda regardless of what the people want.

As far as I am concerned, this self serving type of "representation" appears in the Democratic party as well and is not limited strictly to Republicans.

I'm ready to say to hell with both parties. Nearly all of them represent only their own interests. We need a third party in this country, perhaps even a fourth or a fifth. The only way to keep our elected representation on track and focused on what they were elected to do by their constituency is to make sure that there are plenty of options for voters come election time.

Well, I see this a lot lately. What I used to see a lot was complaints about politicians who had no spine, who were such hollow shells that they had to take a poll to know what they should do about anything. So which is it, I wonder? Listen to the people or do the job you were elected to do?

Keep in mind that we do not live in a democracy. The levels and checks and balances built into our government were put there specifically to put a lid on popular passions, these having been seen by the founders as inconsistent with good governance and with the long-term health of the republic.

The War on Poverty? Sure...remember it quite well. There was (rather sadly) a good deal of low hanging fruit to be plucked back then, but that War actually worked quite well. At least until Nixon came along. Then success became a harder thing to achieve...
