We don't? Let's see what happened before 2010:
Congress Approval rating at highest level since Feb. 2005, spurred by Democrats
3/11/2009 11:06am by Joe Sudbay
Well, well, well. Look what happened when Congress actually started acting in the interests of the American people. The approval rating increased. From Gallup:
Americans’ job approval rating of Congress is up an additional 8 points this month, after a 12-point increase last month, and now stands at 39%— the most positive assessment of Congress since February 2005.
Here’s how the approval rating has looked (click on the picture for a larger image)
Here’s part of the analysis from Gallup:
The latest increase suggests the reason for the improved ratings of Congress in 2009 may go beyond simply the change from split control to one-party control of the federal government, to include an assessment of the work Congress has been doing with the new president on the economy and other issues.
Such an explanation seems plausible given that a majority of Democrats now approve of the job Congress is doing, and that the gap between Democratic and Republican approval of Congress is growing, as Congress passes and President Obama signs laws to deal with the economy and other issues that largely follow a Democratic philosophy of governing.
Even though the Democratic Party had majority control of both houses of Congress in 2007-2008, it was able to achieve little of its legislative agenda while Republican Bush remained in the White House. This lack of results may have soured Democrats’ opinions of Congress.
So, Congress, keep doing what you’re doing.
And, this should serve as a heads up to all of the Democrats who want to block the Obama agenda. Obstructionism and the failure to address serious issues is what makes people hate Congress. Don’t sour people on Congress again.

And then Republicans gained back leadership of Congress in 2010. Imagine that.

What this reporter says and, what the majority of Americans agrees with is that George Bush neglected to do anything before the 9/11 attack to protect Americans for 9 months even though Bush had been warmed and briefed.

George Bush did nothing after the attack on New York and Pentagon to capture bin Laden and allowed him to retreat in Pakistan for 6 years.

He knew the threat that existed and sat idle without doing one thing constructive to prevent the mayhem, disaster and murder of more than 3500 Citizens.

"Bush was told in the months before the Sept. 11 attacks that Osama bin Laden's terrorist network might hijack U.S. passenger planes"

Flatly George Bush blundered and dropped the ball as the single most destructive attack since the British burnt down the White House in 1812 occurred.

What Bush Knew Before Sept. 11
President Bush was told in the months before the Sept. 11 attacks that Osama bin Laden's terrorist network might hijack U.S. passenger planes - information which prompted the administration to issue an alert to federal agencies - but not the American public.
CBS News National Security Correspondent David Martin says the warning was in a document called the President's Daily Brief, which is considered to be the single most important document that the U.S. intelligence community turns out. The document did not, however, mention the possibility of planes being flown into buildings.
White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said that while President Bush was told last summer that bin Laden's al Qaeda network might hijack planes, "until the attack took place, I think it's fair to say that no one envisioned that [using planes as suicide bombs] as a possibility."
However, a federal report issued exactly two years before the Sept. 11 attacks contrasts with that statement.
The report, entitled the "Sociology and Psychology of Terrorism: Who Becomes a Terrorist and Why?," warned the executive branch that bin Laden's terrorists might hijack an airliner and dive bomb it into the Pentagon or other government building.
It described the suicide hijacking as one of several possible retribution attacks al Qaeda might seek for the 1998 U.S. airstrike against bin Laden's camps in Afghanistan.
"Suicide bomber(s) belonging to al Qaeda's Martyrdom Battalion could crash-land an aircraft packed with high explosives (C-4 and semtex) into the Pentagon, the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), or the White House," the September 1999 report said.
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/what-bush-knew-be...
So let me run the numbers here. Okay, Bush was in office 9 months........ this report was 2 years old..........Al Qaeda mad about bombings in 98...... so let's see, that would make this report a year and three months prior to Bush taking office of President. Now who was President over a year before Bush took office when this report came out? Furthermore, what action did that President take that Bush didn't?
Seems to me (according to this report) that the terrorists were not mad at Bush at all. They were mad at Clinton and it was Clinton's actions that put the ball in play. Clinton, the very same President that was in charge during the first attack on the WTC's.

Republicans can't shut down government. They don't have that kind of power.
You see, the Congress are those wonderful people that write laws, pass taxes and create budgets. That's their job.
When Congress writes a budget, it goes to the Senate and then the President. If the Senate or President refuse the Congresses budget, that's when the government gets shut down, but Congress didn't do it. Either the Senate or the President shuts the government down.
Now what phony hearings are you writing about today? The idea that this Bozo used the IRS to target Republican groups? The idea that he and his minions gave Mexican drug cartels American weapons? The fact that there was no action taken on behalf of the four poor souls that lost their lives in Benghazi? What?
None of it is phony. These things really did happen. But you can't blame the Republicans if people take the Fifth, refuse to cooperate, or people out and out lie about it. That doesn't make anything phony.
Those are phony show trial for political postering. Anyone living beyond the GOP echo chamber agrees with that assssment

You live in a State where Republicans are doing everything possible in the State legislator to limit access to the polls for seniors, minorities and college students. That's a perfect example of voter suppression in most Americans opinion.

That's an deliberate attempt to usurp citizens individual rights, What's more Anti American that denying citizens a right to exercise their right to vote for the candidate of their choice?

The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.

What the article pointed out was that the information of hijackings and using planes as weapons went down to the Clinton administration--not Bush's. In fact, according to this article, Clinton received that information over one year and three months before Bush ever arrived on the scene.
Bush was made aware of "possible" terrorist attempts. And if you read the article, it clearly placed the blame of not recognizing terrorists getting flight training at the feet of the FBI--not Bush. furthermore, the information that Bush received was not explicit, it was very ambiguous. This is addition to the fact that Bush took action on those ambiguous threats.
Now I didn't post the article to blame Clinton. What I posted the article for was to once and for all end this fallacy that Bush knew of what, when and where this 911 attack was supposed to happen. It's all left-wing blog lies and should be put to rest.
Bush did the best he could possible do with the information he was provided. So did Clinton. You can't expect any President to put the entire country in lockdown over general information. Clinton didn't do it and neither did Bush.
You are lying to try and save face.You have no idea what you're talking about. Barefoot posted the PDB Fax of the pending attack.

Your Boy Bush failed to heed the advice of the transition team Clinton put together to help navigate Bush through the threat Al Qaeda were to America.

That is willful neglect. Bush was an accesory to those murders.
