Who Would’ve Thought

15 Dec

Not exactly a revelation,… this congress sucks. The numbers in the poll below reflect the record dissatisfaction.
It’s bad— we may go through  years of their doing nothing but reaffirming the national motto.  What a waste of time. Other things to do????  Yeah, I’d say.

But I have tendency to see it a little differently.   I look at it as a “be careful what you wish for” situation. Because if you kick out a pack of corrupt idiots, — I don’t think you’ll necessarily be replacing them with anything that will turn out to be better.

 The machine is broken and needs to be fixed or replaced. Not just cogs and gears in that machine.                       Easy to say, —– 

 
So, here are the latest numbers from a poll asking what the public thinks—-

Results from a new national survey from the Pew Research Center should strike fear into the hearts of incumbents in Congress, especially those who are members of the Republican Party. A record number of respondents want to vote sitting lawmakers out of office, and Republicans take more of the blame than Democrats for perceptions of a do-nothing Congress.

According to the Pew Research report, two-thirds (67 percent) of registered voters nationwide say “most members of Congress” should be voted out of office in 2012, while only 20 percent want most members reelected. This desire to fire all incumbents marks a record level of discontent since the Pew Center started asking the question 18 years ago, far exceeding previous highs of 57 percent in 2010 and 56 percent in 1994.
