    Finally. I bet impeachment hearings would improve Congress's ratings.

    A July 8, 2008 Rasmussen Report finds that Congress has the lowest approval rating yet recorded: 9%. 52% of respondents say that Congress is doing a "poor" job.

    Congress can't do **** with a President like Bush in charge, but you can't expect the American public to know that.

    2/3 majority vote to override a veto.

    Yeah, who gives a **** about approval ratings though? Is that really a benchmark for success? The country is in a downward spiral economically and trapped in the midst of a military quagmire, we're looking at approval ratings? Of course they're low. And without a 2/3 majority, and against a tow-the-line republican bunch of spacktards, and a president who won't let anything pass... yeah... of course congress is ineffective. No sh*t.
    And who gives an ineffective congress high ratings? No one. Why would they? But nice spin to make it look like democrats are seemingly, universally hated here. I mean, I hate them, but not as much as the other tards right now.

    Perhaps you could illustrate some of the successes of this administration? (other than some supposed success with north korea in the last 2 weeks)

    Basically everything is worse off now than it was 8 years ago. And the president takes the job WANTING the responsibility of running the country. So he got the responsibility (remember republicans love to tout 'personal responsibility') and everything has gone south. Is he going to take the responsibility for that? **** no, he'll pass the buck as usual. Blame congress, after all, look at their approval ratings. :rolleyes:

    See, exactly my point N_8. Bush WANTED the responsibility of being the president, so when it comes reckoning time, to see what he ultimately was responsible for, all we get is deflection and blame. Your post is the perfect example.
    Cracks me up every time.

    not everything, congress needs to grow a spine and not pass **** like the fisa "compromise"

    However, the Bush administration has pretty much tanked the country

    No Kidding , so what Bush Veto's what they pass. Still pass the legislation and get it veto'ed show the American people you are trying to do something for change in stead of just sitting back showing you are a do nothing with no guts , just willing to point the fingers. if you pass a enough bills that get vetod A) some might actually be able to get through on veto over ride., B) It will look like your actually doing the job you were sent to washington to do C) enough Veto's will help make not only make the President look bad ( which doesn't need much help ) but it will help make any candidate that opposes him look better.

    Actually, I agree with you on this matter. I think Congress is doing nothing to improve our country, but rather sitting on their hands because our leader is a sh*thead.

    I rather Pelosi and Reid attack Bush at every instance and go down fighting rather than sit around and wait for Barack or McCain to fix the problems.
