    Watchin' you. Writing it all down.
    Senate Republicans vote 92% of the time in support of GWB

    This is a marked difference between Reagan (73%) Clinton (86%) and Bush senior (77%)

    With Bush's approval at an all time low, it'll be interesting to see how quickly that number drops.

    Charles Schumer has been consistently using the rubber stamp line for more than a year. I believe that you will be hearing this term a lot in the next year from a lot more Democrats.

    Its not. Lots of the Senate Republicans back then didn't agree with his spending habits.

    If you ask me the sooner the rational republicans (if there are any actually left) grow a pair, the better for everyone.
