Early Exit Poll Results Tell a Tale of Two Republicans
Broad support for legal abortion, skepticism about the Tea Party, fallout from the federal government shutdown and doubts about his political ideology confront Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia, while personal and professional plaudits greet Chris Christie in New Jersey – a tale of two very different Republicans.
In Virginia, six in 10 voters in preliminary exit poll results say they support legal abortion, which GOP gubernatorial candidate Cuccinelli has opposed prominently. Voters by a double-digit margin are more apt to say they oppose than support the Tea Party political movement, which backs Cuccinelli. And half call Cuccinelli “too conservative,” an opening for his Democratic opponent, Terry McAuliffe.
Moreover, the one in three Virginia voters who say someone in their household was affected by the partial federal shutdown last month are far more likely to blame the Republican Party than Barack Obama for letting it happen – by a broad 20-point margin.

President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.

btw....Presidents don't lose their job because of low approval ratings. but GOP congressman is a totally different story. and how are they polling? lower than Obama?
ok, stupid question. everyone knows that the most hated politicians in America are GOP congresscritters.
Popularity can be a relative thing sometimes. When the Magic Negro's approval numbers are, say, 9%, sonic will hunker down and hunt for a Republican out there with 8% and then sing the praises of the Boy Messiah being higher than Republicans.

You sound like Nanny Pelosi trying a pick-up line on a 19 year-old secretary in a gay beltway bar.

Hey teach, you obviously didn't instruct special ed, so let me tell you it's now time to take out crayons and paper and draw them a picture, LOL.
Metaphors simplify the obvious into the more obvious for those who have a difficult time understanding just the obvious.

But I can draw them a picture if that would help too.

At the end of the day you live in a Republican controlled state where all but a couple of the county school boards are controlled by Republicans and the best you can do is yak about ghost teachers unions with little no power over policy, procedure, rules, regulations etc etc etc.
Sometimes I wonder if you actually live in Florida__and referring to the "tag agency" as the DMV also adds cause to wonder.
Been a while since I've had to go to the tag place to get a tag.

Okay if I just call it the tag place?

Anyway, my teaching days were over almost two decades ago. It doesn't matter if you live in a Republican controlled county or not. Liberals and unions - the strong arm of the Democratic Party - run the show on the education front anywhere.

What Are the Symptoms of Schizoid Personality Disorder (in addition to posts like the above)?
People with schizoid personality disorder often are reclusive, organizing their lives to avoid contact with other people. Many never marry or continue to live with their parents as adults. Other common traits of people with this disorder include the following:
They do not desire or enjoy close relationships, even with family members.
They choose solitary jobs and activities.
They take pleasure in few activities except for posting nonsensical jibberish on Topix.
They have no close friends, except first-degree relatives.
They have difficulty relating to others.
They are indifferent to praise or criticism.
They are aloof and show little emotion.
They might daydream and/or create vivid fantasies of complex inner lives.
They think Obama is an effective President.
"Laney F"
You do not think nobama is an effective president? Look how effective he was on the following;
- He effectively grew the unemployment rate
- He effectively grew the food stamp rolls by 6 million
- He effectively enabled fewer American's to pay Federal income tax
- He effectively oversaw American's household income decline by about 6%
- He effectively led the campaign to lower home values and new home starts
- He effectively okayed Fast and Furious that led to American deaths
- He effectively took a nap and let muslim terrorists murder American's in Benghazi
- He effectively pushed thru nobamakare a trillion dollar boondogle a majority of American's do not want or need
- He effectively pissed away a near trillion dollar debacle, his "stimulus" bill which provided almost nothing
No way you can say nobama has not been effective.

Only 1.1 million jobs, have to agree that is a lousy number. But lets look at president nobama, unemployment rate higher than when he was elected, most of the jobs created under nobama, government and part time.

Can anyone believe the President of the United States lied to us - on purpose!- about something as important and personal as our health care?

Just because he wants us to have what he thinks we should have?

Shocking. Absolutely shocking.

At least on occasion you can be honest. You admit most of the jobs created in the last 5 years are either government or part time.
