No Wonder the Tea Parties Are Thriving

I once despaired of the American people. Right around November 2nd, 2008. At least 52% of them seemed to be idiotic and blind.

Apparently, the American people may be waking up after the recent shocks given to them by Congress and Obama.

57% would replace the ENTIRE Congress if given the choice. And the Republicans had better take notice of a certain fact:

While Democrats have become more supportive of the legislators, voters not affiliated with either major party have moved in the opposite direction. Today, 70% of those not affiliated with either major party would vote to replace all of the elected politicians in the House and Senate. That’s up from 62% last year.

Republicans, not surprisingly, overwhelmingly support replacing everyone in the Congress. Their views have not changed. But Republican voters are disenchanted with their team as much as the Congress itself: 69% of GOP Voters say Republicans in Congress are out of touch with the party base.

So, while a majority of voters may be unhappy with the Democratic Congress, the GOP does not get a free pass. 2010 is NOT going to be easy. Either the Republicans start acting and voting like the party they say they are OR the Democrats will win again in 2010. Conservatives will stay home because they won't see any difference between the parties.

When one is being guided down the path to hell, it doesn't matter whether your guide is walking slowly or fast. You are still being sent to hell in a handbasket. We need statesmen. NOT POLITICIANS.
