This inbred defective trust-fund baby cretin has been sucking at the public teat his entire life. The entire dynasty of bootlegging gangsters has used this country as their personal piggybank and playground for nearly sixty years. Their version of "Royal Socialism", whereby everyone is equal except them and their "ruling caste" partners. There could be no better example of their self-defined Royalty than the whacky windmill matter, whereby windmills are the energy salvation of the nation, BUT DON'T YOU DARE put one anywhere near the view from the Kennedy Castle at Hyannisport. On the other hand, perhaps they just didn't want windmills at the Cape, because they were afraid that the drunk Kennedy's would accidentally wreck their yachts into them. Hmmmmmm?

Oh please, say something intelligent. Sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder because you haven't been as fortunate.

Look out incumbents: CBS/New York Times poll shows Congressional job approval down to a stunning 15%


The latest CBS News/New York Times Poll finds most Americans are now dissatisfied or even angry with government – and much of that frustration is directed at Congress, which now receives just a 15% approval rating. Levels of distrust and cynicism about government are at or near 15-year highs.

Dissatisfaction extends to both political parties as well – the Democratic and Republican parties are near record high unfavorable ratings in CBS News/New York Times Polls.

As Americans continue to worry about the economy, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating is 46%, matching his previous low from early January. But he, not Congress or the Republicans, is more often viewed as representing and understanding Americans’ interests and trying to work in a bipartisan manner.

They've been given emergency credits for the blizzard (they didn't show up in DC). Next week, will be back down to 10%.
