Americans’ confidence in the two-party dominated system has hit an all-time low, with only 18 percent saying they’re satisfied with the way the nation is being run.
Let's have three parties?

TEA PARTY IMBECILES

Democrats continue to win!

Right whiners split the rest of the vote!

The percentage of Americans rating the Republicans unfavorably. More than one-quarter of Republicans (27 percent) viewed their own party unfavorably. You and your party are living proof of that old quote from the bible "hate begets hate." Congrats!! Mission accomplished!

So you think arguing who is MORE unpopular proves any of them are?
I posted Obama's ratings to counter your claim that Obama has the support of Americans.
Like everything in life, it's all relative.

Obama is faring far better than your side, and it's driving you even crazier!!

You guys are still having problems figuring this out.
Quotes and polls- as a courtesy- should have links.
To finish the quote-
"Again, "Talking Points" understands Obamacare is not good for the country, but that must be vividly proven in order for the Democrats to take a massive hit. And the only way that will happen is if the law collapses, which it well might. When Americans begin to see their insurance premiums, co-pays and deductibles go up and their doctors not readily available, there's going to be a lot of anger and the tide will turn."
hey Chicken Little wazzz up!?

so if BillO nailed that part of his 'Republicans are screwed' dissertation, then he must have nailed the first part.

and if i don't cite a quote i did it on purpose. why should i be the only one who has to hunt down right wing sources?

time to elect congress on equal footing. a tea bagger representing a district with 200 racist tea baggers shouldnt have the same say as a person with a 100,000 people living in it.

Obamacare's numbers are up, from 31% to 38%.
Yours are at 21% and sinking.
I figure Obamacare will remain far more popular than Teabag Nation.
Where are the trucks you nitwits were talking about all week??
USA wasted all day yesterday trying to prove that Obamacare was popular and we kept pointing out that it still fails to have anywhere near the acceptation of the majority of Americans and then you and others have come in here and destroy her claims.

An unpopular policy is still an unpopular policy.

So, the Dems didn't want Bush to be one term.
PS Only the far Left finds it shocking that it is true.
of course the main difference is that the Democrats WORKED with the Bush administration and didn't close the government down or threaten to default on our debt already incurred.

In fact the last time this happened, a Federal gov't shut down and a threat to reneg on our debt, there was a Democrat in the oval office and Republicans controlled congress

At least so far, the standoff has been a political bloodbath for Republicans. And maybe that’s exactly what was needed to right the political system: The effort to gut Obamacare had to crash like this so that Republican leaders and lawmakers would find the courage to stand up to tea party toughs, and so that business leaders would decide to stop funding a small band of right-wing activists whose interests are antithetical to their own.

It's hard to overstate the magnitude of the GOP's strategic failure here: Obamacare's launch has been awful. More than a week after the federal insurance marketplaces opened, most people can't purchase insurance on the first try. But Republicans have chosen such a wildly unpopular strategy to oppose it that they've helped both Obamacare and its author in the polls.

This could've been a week when Republicans crystallized the case against Obamacare. Instead it's been a week in which they've crystallized the case against themselves.

And for what?

"I do think leadership in the House needs to change," Hannity said. "I don't think John Boehner is equipped for the job. I don't think he has the stomach to negotiate. I don't think he has the ability to communicate the positive, solution-oriented vision for the country."
"How hard is it?" Hannity asked. "Why aren't these guys out there explaining what their vision is?"

You're a liar. It's your quote that started it.
"""Refusing to post links to back up your claims contrary to history is not an argument -it is waving the white flag." - whatever""
Funny, you demand links from others, yet insist you needn't provide any.
You just wave your White Flag a hundred times a day.
You are still having problems understanding the differences here I see-

""Refusing to post links to back up your claims contrary to history is not an argument"

If you are going to make outrageous claims that let's say World War II was a result of greed for gold, then you need to back it up.

"Silly, it was Nuc, Yuck and you who started the troll war of demanding proof for such idiocies as common knowledge, things irrelevant, things that can be easily found by searching or to what was an opinion.
No Surprise and perhaps others then trolled you back with the same moronic demands. "

The above is being petty and people noticed.

You can figure it out.
