In a just released Washington Post/ABC News Poll the pollsters have concluded the idiot’s polled are “not yet sold on the GOP.”
Couple points…first, is it me or did the bright bulbs at the Post and ABC miss checking the calendar? Have they missed the part about how this is still the Pelosi Congress? For the record, as Republican’s are the minority until the new Congress is sworn in on January 5th, they are unable to forward any legislation.
So what gives the following Washington Post passage: “Republicans may have made major gains in the November elections, but they have yet to win the hearts and minds of the American people….” How can Republicans, still in the minority, “win” anything? They cannot schedule a vote; cannot hold a meeting; cannot suggest a piece of legislation….nothing! So how then can they “win” hearts and minds? How can such an asinine question even be asked?
And to bolster my point that “idiots” were both the polled as well as the pollsters conducting the survey, how about this conclusion – “…Americans believe that the president is more genuine in wanting to reduce the deficit.” Excuse me? The man who inflated his first yearly deficit by almost THREE times higher than any previous? That one? The one who liked his first $1.3 Trillion dollar deficit so much his second budget had a similar $1.3 Trillion dollar deficit? Him?
According to Texas Insider “President Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats today surpassed the eight-year federal deficit total of the Bush Administration in just a little more than one month after taking control of all three branches of the federal government.” This article was written February 27, 2009.
So lemme see if I get this…The Washington Post and ABC News, venerable organizations that they are, joined to come up with a poll where the conclusions of the idiots polled was that Obama is better to deal with reducing the deficit than Republicans? Odd. So the man who made our deficits explode for two years in a row is better at lowering the deficit? This makes no sense whatsoever.
I must conclude the alleged random sampling of those polled were all hanging out at the DNC headquarters during the poll. At least two premises of the poll are rather ignorant. Who did they poll? Either those polled are ignorant beyond belief, hopeful beyond belief or Democrats.
How can the party NOT YET sworn into the majority be responsible for anything, good or bad for that matter? And how can the man who has run two deficits in consecutive years higher than any previous president be the savior who will swoop in and fix the problem he is exacerbating by exponential margins?
I guess we’re left to conclude the world is different than ever in human history. We can elect a Messiah we do not even know. Those who have no political power are questioned as to why they haven’t fixed anything yet. And then there are idiots in the ether who believe the man who exacerbated the problem worse then ever is the best one to fix it? INSANITY!!
The election was 6 weeks ago yesterday, and sure enough, thus far Republicans have not passed a single piece of legislation for sure…bad Republicans! But I could have absolutely sworn the House Majority status does not kick in until January 5th?
