Congressional Republicans tarred with Bush's brush

You know how whenever you point out Bush's unbelievably low approval ratings Republicans always say that the Congress also is held in contempt by most Americans? Well, they have a point. But they shouldn't make it too loudly-- for their own sake. That's because today's Washington Post shows that most Americans, while not happy with Congress know exactly where to put the most blame: on the obstructionist Republicans.

Let's look at a few questions and a few answers that should-- if they were honest, though they're not, so they don't-- shut the GOP propagandists down.

Approve     30%      
Disapprove  63        
Congressional Republicans Job Approval

Disapprove  67          
How Much Do You Think Congress Has Accomplished This Year? 

A great deal     2%
A good amount   14%
Not much       65%
Nothing        17% 

If Congress Has Accomplished Little Or Nothing, Who Deserves Most Of The Blame For That?

Congressionl Democrats 25%
Bush and the Congressional Republicans 51%
Both 20%

Which Party Do You Trust To Do A Better Job Handling The Following Issues?

And that goes for all who do not support throwing BUSHCO into the darkest dankest dungeon for their TREASON and the damage they have willfully and deliberately done to this country in their insane lust for money and power. Exporting democracy was the last thing on their twisted minds. Those in Congress and the media who do not support impeachment, conviction and imprisonment are appeasers, accomplices, and accessories after the fact. We do not need Vichy Collaborator Dems anymore than we need Repugs.
