Polls showed Congress had something like a 13% approval rating before the elections... and yet most representatives kept their seats.

CNN poll: More Americans would blame Republicans if country went off fiscal cliff

And all thirteen people who watch CNN regularly, may have been tuned in to watch the reports of this.

Considering CNN's ratings, their approval ratings must be close to 0.75% Who are they to talk?

“But what was strange was that although Goldstein was hated and despised by everybody, although every day and a thousand times a day, on platforms, on the telescreen, in newspapers, in books, his theories were refuted, smashed, ridiculed, held up to the general gaze for the pitiful rubbish that they were — in spite of all this, his influence never seemed to grow less.”

Just sub `Bush/GOP/conservatives’ for `Goldstein’.

This is a just a big It Don't Matter. The Republican party is done for as far as national elections. As dead as the Whigs. They will win state and local elections for a while, but as a national party I just do not see them winning the presidency again. There are just too many of the 47% that live in the large population centers on both coasts and sprinkled throughout the land. The Republican party dominates in less populated states that treasure their freedom much more than their desire to have the government pay for their every whim. Moving further left will not help since voters will not vote for "all most Democrat" when they can have the real thing. I suspect that within the next decade or so, the current Republican voters will decide that the Republican party really does not represent them and either form a new party or just go underground and off the grid.

The GOP had their chance under Bush and gave us what? An Andro ban and "temporary" tax relief? A DHS we didn't need or want?

The Dems are to blame primarily... But the GOP's weak testicular fortitude is becoming nearly legendary.

I’d like to see republicans open up a can of class warfare whoopass. They should relent on higher taxes on actual millionaires. They should demand an annual wealth tax on net worths in excess of $2 billion. They should disallow formation of trusts with funds that have not first been subjected to payment of unrealized capital gains and estate taxes. All in exchange for entitlement reform. Make democrats look bad protecting their constituents and billionaires that favor democrats.

Republicans should first pass their own preferred plan in the House. The Senate dems and Obama, of course, will have done nothing but make speeches.

Having passed their plan, the Republicans should then insist that C-Span cameras be rolling at all subsequent negotiations.

Clearly a poll with an agenda. The GOP should ignore. If it’s true or if it’s false — they have nothing to lose either way. They need to explain why they do what the do on the chance they can reach some of the idiot public filled with propaganda by Communist schools and the Communist media.

Lets see:

CNN’s poll

CNN says what every single day? “Republican Fault”

And one wonders why said poll would say this?

Of course - when public schools have been teaching liberalism for how many decades now?
