Dems Back Off Promises, No Wonder Approval is Bush Like

The Congress has an approval rating as low as the President’s and has for quite some time, even when his was much higher. This gets reported at times but the big news outlets that report on Bush’s approval ratings being in the tank hardly ever include that the approval of Congress is just as dismal. It is no surprise that the ratings are low, people are tired of the criminals that occupy Congress. They are a bunch of self serving people who care more about getting reelected then doing the right thing.

Couple this with the Democrats backing off some of their campaign promises (no surprise there) and you have the making of low approval ratings. The Democrats have backed way off their so called lobby reform (you know to end that culture of corruption) and are now not so sure they like what they were proposing:

Now that they are running things, many Democrats want to keep the big campaign donations and lavish parties that lobbyists put together for them. They’re also having second thoughts about having to wait an extra year before they can become high-paid lobbyists themselves should they retire or be defeated at the polls.

The growing resistance to several proposed reforms now threatens passage of a bill that once seemed on track to fulfill Democrats’ campaign promise of cleaner fundraising and lobbying practices. ABC News

The Democrats do not need this issue now because they do not need to beat up Republicans with it in order to win elections. They are now content to sit back and rake in the lobbyist dollars. Why should they worry? The MSM will not report Democratic corruption or it will be mentioned in passing and then dismissed. William Jefferson is corrupt but we do not hear anyone in the MSM calling for his resignation. He is not in a cell next to Randy Cunningham. Dianne Feinstein is a war profiteer who used her position in the Senate to push defense contracts to her husbands business in violation of Senate ethics rules and the law. Her family wealth went from around 15 million dollars to 50 million during the time she was breaking the law and yet she is not breaking rocks in a federal prison.

The MSM will give Democrats a pass on all this so the Dems don’t really need to worry about lobby reform. They can continue to fleece Americans and act surprised when we don’t smile while bent over. The Democrats have used their positions to gain wealth for years. The list of wealthiest members of the Senate has Democrats from top to bottom and they did not get that way honestly.

The Democrats are a disgrace but Congress in general needs an overhaul. DC needs an enema.
