Worst Congress Ever!!

One month ago:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just nine percent (9%) of Likely Voters give Congress positive ratings, while 51% say it's doing a poor job.
Now with the Dems obfuscating on the sub-prime mortgage fiasco, I wonder if their ratings have improved. Not very likely, IMHO.
"The news is even worse for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is viewed favorably by 22% of Democrats and unfavorably by 41%."
"Most voters (68%) think members of Congress are more interested in furthering their own political careers than in genuinely helping people. Just 16% believe the reverse."
As for Pelosi, well, she is a witch. She asks how this could "sneak up on us?" Well, duh!! Where were you, sweetheart? Remember that it was the Clinton administration that put this ball into play. You've had ten years, darling.
"In September of 1999, the New York Times reported that Fannie Mae relaxed its credit underwriting procedures in an effort to encourage homeownership among those deemed incapable of complying with the regular rules: minorities and low income consumers. Who was the President in 1999? Bill Clinton. Who is said to have pressured Fannie Mae to engage in subprime mortgage lending? The Clinton Administration.

Was Nancy Pelosi perhaps a bit factually lacking when she suggested that President Bush inherited only budget surpluses? Just a smidgen."
And you claim this snuck up on you? After singing the praises of free markets you then wax viciously against those eeeeevil capitalists on Wall Street. Just a smidgen, indeed!

This is a global crisis, Pelosi. Thank goodness the Senate has more sense than you.
