Only 9% "approve" of Congress.... well, all of congress except their own Representative, they are awesome!   Which is (part of) why nothing changes.

log_jammin: every week his approval rating is at its lowest ever.


And it's true. It's dropped from 100% of non-republicans to 99.8 to 99.6 to 99.598 to 99.597 and finally, this week 99.596! It's the lowest EVER.

<em>Almost three-fourths say they don't have much confidence Washington can reach a deal. With insiders in both parties generally discounting the possibility of another shutdown, that suggests Washington, if nothing else, has succeeded in lowering the public's expectations to a point where it might finally surpass them. </em>

Okay, that's a good one. Nice closer, Ronald Brownstein.

</thread> right here. Blah blah blah, 0baba suxxor because we say so. I mean, what even is there to say about this topic that hasn't been said in the past five farking years it's been a topic to discuss? Get the fark over it already.
 
2013-11-20 02:54:42 AM
In large part, I feel that this is an entirely ginned up controversy. The media is doing it for ratings, Republican because they are self loathing bastards with no concern for their fellow citizens, and special interests who favor any impediments to weaken the ACA.

Hey, I get it the website sucks, and it shows how difficult it is to implement an unnecessarily complex law that has been relentlessly sabotaged for no practical reason. Much like the gay marriage thing, opponents are on the wrong side of history.
 
2013-11-20 02:55:38 AM
So, what will we talk about tonight?
 
2013-11-20 02:58:36 AM
The only good thing about the ACA website disaster and amateur hour messaging s that the nation's collective attention span is pretty short. Six months from now (probably less) everyone will move on to being outraged about something else.

The administration is in a bad spot here, although they did it to themselves. Instead of playing defense on legislation that was passed three years ago, they should be out reminding everyone they are the only thing standing between the Teatards bringing about worldwide economic collapse.

I think it's been covered. It's up to Obamachev to make the right move.

Yeah, it has nothing at all to do with him spying on me and getting making my monthly health insurance cost double.  That cant be it, because I, as a member of the american public, am too stupid to realize he has done it and form my own opinion.

[citation needed]. And if you think Obama is the first President to spy on you, I am a little worried that someone four years old or younger is posting on Fark.

And no, not a 'B-but Bush'. The government has, since the technology has allowed it, been collecting whatever data it can on its citizens...and I'd be very surprised if *any* country's government didn't have some sort of domestic 'spying' program. The internet just makes it easier to collect and store more data. And while the invasion of privacy sucks, your data is almost certainly going in the digital equivalent of a filing cabinet to be forgotten about.

Again, the invasion of privacy is a shiatty thing, but might as well get used to it. Because no politician is gonna stop it, not even one you think is "different". There'd have to be a huge leftward shift in American culture, with a shiatton of actual liberals getting elected, before we even have a chance of dismantling the surveillance state.

As it is, the American public is too easily scared, and thus, we elect authoritarians. While Republicans are the more extreme, Democrats are far, far from innocent in that regard too; it truly is a 'lesser of two evils' situation.

This little bubble we in the west have been living in, exploiting and impoverishing the rest of the world in order to facilitate our perverse consumption habits without any notion that it might bite us in the ass, it's ending as we speak. Yet all we hear is people biatching about politicians who we think can somehow bring back the carefree days of plentiful work and growth. Not gonna happen, ever.

In Obama's last days in office he should grow a Hitler-stach, wear fangs, and tour tour the south in an Obama-mobile with a heavily armed cavalcade in tow announcing that he's not stepping down...It would be fun to see how many conservative heads would explode.

Asked whom they trust to develop solutions to the country's economic challenges, those polled preferred Obama over congressional Republicans by 36 percent to 33 percent.

I was thinking along the same lines but wearing a full African chief outfit and that he should declare himself King Obongo of the United Tribes of Africa and ride through the RNC convention on a water buffalo.
