Government Shutdown

520 posts in this topic

Just 28 percent of Americans have a favorable impression of the Republican Party, down 10 percentage points from last month, according to a Gallup poll. The polling firm called it a "record low," noting that "this is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992."

 

While the Democratic Party isn’t popular either, it fared better, with 43 percent of Americans approving of the party -- down a comparatively small 4 points from September.

 

The percentage of Americans rating the Republicans unfavorably also reached a record high of 60 percent, while 49 percent gave the Democrats a negative rating. Remarkably, more than one-quarter of Republicans (27 percent) viewed their own party unfavorably.

John Stewart equated this recent Republican strategy as one farting loudly in a room then pointing at the dog.

"Look, you think Obamacare's a big enough threat to this country that you need to shut down the government over it, fine. Own it. Don't fart and point at the dog."

The irony is, these fatties you speak of make up a large chunk of the GOP's base. The 500 lb. diabetic with no insurance in the Duck Dynasty t-shirt from Wal-Mart is red state all the way.

Don't you love that gov workers who are "furloughed" are signing up for unemployment?  they will get all their back pay and yet get to draw unemployment also.
