New Poll Suggests People Hate Republicans
— Ace



But wait! Doesn't that same poll show that only 34% approve of the Democrats? A mere 8% difference in the approval ratings for both parties?

Don't worry; Chris Cilizza, Objective News Reporter for the Washington Post, has an answer for that. For while the public is sick of Republicans because of Republicans, the public is sick of Democrats... because of generalized annoyance with "Government" (which means: More Republicans).


Now don't think the means something like "people are increasingly dissatisfied with the Super Size US Government." No, he means like this:

People hate the Republicans because of what Republicans do;

but people dislike the Democrats Because of Society In General.

His attack on Republicans is quite specific as to their faults which supposedly drive public disapproval; but when it comes to the Democrats' own horrific numbers, he just sort of says "that's the state of play, man."

And when he says people don't like "government," he means squabbling in government, which itself is all due to the GOP.

But note that the Wily Reid, The Rock, isn't squabbling. No, he's taking a manly stand on principle.


I really can't tell which side the media favors with all the nuance of a rabid fanboi.

(IE, passing a fucking BUDGET!) but of course our "betters" in the media are completely ignoring that...and our "betters" in the Stupid Party are once again FAILING COMPLETELY to make that point...



And when it crashes and burns the Stupid Party will say "Well, the votes are in, we should have been more liberal" instead of figuring out the voters, given a choice between evil and less evil...get sick of having to pick evil.

I bought a no money down house five years ago, when Barack Obama was elected, and while it's gone down in value every year since then, and I probably owe $50,000 more then I could sell it for today, I'd like to guarantee some sort of retirement income from my equity. There must be absolute boatloads of it by now, since Barack Obama *swoon* is President.

110 "MANHATTAN — Two people wearing black suits and black helmets parachuted into Lower Manhattan near the World Trade Center early Monday, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. Is it just me or does this all sound a tad unusual? Maybe it's serious, but it could also just be a couple of people thrill-seeking. BASE jumpers do dumb things all the time.

112 What these folks on DC and the MSM do not seem to (or refuse to) recognize is that much of the hatred of congress and republicans comes from conservatives. The idea that these polling numbers are favorable to democrats is laughably ridiculous.

They opened for the old Jefferson Airplane back in the early 70s. A bunch of midgets, IIRC, but it may have been the brown acid.

114 Aside from doling out unmerited welfare benefits and crony porkbarrel payoffs, what the hell does the federal government even do, anyway? Military -- Already funded separately by the house. No problem there. IRS -- I hate them, good to see them out of work. National Parks and so forth -- Give Gaia a few months' rest from the trampling of human shoes; good idea! Do-nothing bureaucrats in their offices - Fuck you. Permanent layoffs for you. Do-something bureaucrats -- These guys scare me the most. The more they "do," the more they ruin. Shut 'em down. All in all, sounds like a winning proposition to me.

117 Is it just me or does this alll sound a tad unusual?

Most likely explanation -- just BASE jumpers who found a way onto a tall building's roof and snuck a jump in while traffic was light.

If they look around, they'll probably find an unlocked rooftop access door somewhere

121 New Republican Senator ratings are out. Only two to score an average of 100 are Cruz and Lee, Paul got a 99. I guess this is based on voting records by Heritage Foundation and Freedom Works. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3073029/posts

Posted by: zombie at September 30, 2013 04:46 PM (+cx5n) I agree with your assessment. I can't think of a downside to shutting down non-essential agencies. Maybe the public will wake up to the fact that we don't need them anyway.

Bring me the guys from Dark City: "Shut it down! Shut it down forever!"

If they have to wishcast manipulated polls just to kinda, sorta arrive at, "and then they'll blame the Republicans" tells me there's a whole lot of more support for the Dark City Gambit than they want you to know.

133 The math on this is probably a short term net loss for Republicans among swing voters, but largely forgotten by LIV by November 2014.

Long term, it's a loss for Democrats and once again cements the impression that Obama is a piss poor President and Democrats can't govern.  The media is upset because they know a government shutdown once again just shows the American public that life does go on without the federal bureaucracy.

Democrats are also dying on a hill for Obamacare that's only going to get more unpopular.

But had Republicans in the House never even attempted any pushback, it would have been a disaster in the 2014 election as conservatives would have wondered what was the point of voting for Republicans.
