mocktwinkie saidIf a poll asked me if I disapproved of the republicans I'd say yes too. I guess the more relevant question is which do I disapprove of MORE with regards to the debt ceiling crisis, and I would have to say the democrats.
You're actually among the slight majority of Repubs.
The poll also found that 51% of REPUBLICAN VOTERS disapprove of what the Repubs in D.C. are doing.
But you're out of step with the American people.
71% of Americans blame the Repubs.
58% of Americans blame the Dems.
Only 48% of Americans blame President Obama.
Obviously, "MORE" Americans blame the Repubs than blame the Dems and the president.
And this fact has really put the Repubs in a squeeze.
They can't call the shots and make the demands now.
They need to agree to a deal or they'll be held responsible by a majority of Americans for failing to get a deal done, and for any negative consequences of not getting a deal done.
If the Repubs can't negotiate with the Dems in a sane and bipartisan way to get things done for the American people - they'll have revealed themselves as unable to govern responsibly.
