Fido found those numbers...


Looks like Fido was able to dig deep enough to find Congress approval rating at 29% and down from 37% when the "Democrats" took control of Congress... And now the Leaders of the Democratic Party have come out and said that they will send the needed military spending bill to the President without the withdrawl\surrender deadline that they favor...
It appears that 29% approval rating has them worried about their future "Job Status" with the people who they claim support the "New Congress"...
Wait until they get their job approval rating after this Memorial Day weekend with the average gasoline price over $3.20 a gallon...

Democrats Drop Troop Pullout Dates From Iraq Bill
WASHINGTON, May 22 — Congressional Democrats relented today on their insistence that a war spending measure sought by President Bush also set a date for withdrawing troops from Iraq. The decision to back down, described by senior lawmakers and aides, was a wrenching reversal for some Democrats, who saw their election triumph as a call to force an end to the war. A Democratic effort to include timelines prompted Mr. Bush’s veto of the original bill last month, producing a political impasse.
Investor Business Daily Reports:
"As Congressional Quarterly noted this week, since taking over Congress this year, the Democrats have only passed 26 laws, 12 of which "changed the name of a federal building, post office or national recreation area."

"This Congress largely has refused to find common ground with the president on anything. No wonder Gallup reports this week that Congress' approval rating, which has dropped steadily from 37% when Democrats took over, is now at 29% — well below the 33%-and-holding for President Bush that the media routinely describes as "rock-bottom."

I can hardly wait for next year's elections. They are in for a real shock. I am glad to see Osama running against Hitlery. They will cancel each other out because both have absolutely no chance whatsoever in making it to the white house.
