Nancy Pelosi is being booed,
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) yesterday reaffirmed her commitment to end the war in Iraq, but her words were greeted with skepticism and some boos by anti-war liberal activists.
Addressing the liberal pressure group Campaign for America’s Future, Pelosi called the war in Iraq a “tragedy” and a “grotesque mistake,” but her words elicited catcalls for her to do more.”
“Hillary Rodham Clinton was booed Wednesday for the second year in a row by a liberal group that was not satisfied by her recent embrace of a timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq.
“I love coming here every year,” Clinton said facetiously over boos from the audience at the Take Back America conference in Washington. “I see the signs, ‘Get Us Out of Iraq Now.’ That’s what we’re trying to do.”
Meanwhile, confidence in Congress, where the Democrats in control of both houses, is at an
“Just 14% of Americans have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in Congress.
This 14% Congressional confidence rating is the all-time low for this measure, which Gallup initiated in 1973. The previous low point for Congress was 18% at several points in the period of time 1991 to 1994.
Congress is now nestled at the bottom of the list of Gallup’s annual Confidence in Institutions rankings, along with HMOs. Just 15% of Americans have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in HMOs. (By way of contrast, 69% of Americans have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the military, which tops the list.”
Yet, despite all these woes, the voters trust Democrats more than Republicans on 10 out of 10 “key issues” that Rasmussen tracks — which raises an interesting question — how bad do the Republicans have to be to be keep losing to the Democrats?
It’s like going on Jeopardy and being crushed by Paris Hilton. It’s like getting beaten up by Woody Allen. But, the Republicans are still somehow managing to be soundly defeated politically by the worst, most incompetent, least politically astute group of morons to ever reign on Capitol Hill.
