Don Surber is on fire with a column on the Democrat Congress. Here are some excerpts:
Democrats keep challenging the weakest administration since Jimmy Carter, and incredibly, prove to be even weaker.I was under the impression that democrats held a majority in both houses. Doesn't majority + Republican support = bigger majority? Or is this some kind of new Democratic math? Not that I'm unhappy about it mind you. I favor divided government.
Reid and Pelosi failed to get a timetable placed on withdrawing troops from Iraq, even after larding up a vital defense appropriation with $20 billion in pork-barrel projects.
Next came the Amnesty bill (or as proponents called it, the Immigration Reform bill), which failed to garner more than 45 votes, even with Republican support.
Finally, on Monday, the Senate tried for the first time ever to have a no-confidence resolution against Alberto Gonzales, the Mike Brown of attorneys general.
And the Senate failed. Even with Republican support.
Don has some more:
The Los Angeles Times released a poll this week that showed only 27 percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, while 65 percent disapprove.H/T Instapundit
Last April, the same newspaper poll showed a Republican Congress with 28 percent approval and 61 percent disapproval.
It took Republicans 12 years to dissolve. Democrats have done it in less than six months.
I congratulate them on their efficiency.
